Washington Post Page 18 Column Things Heard and Seen Several short stories make up the column. Only that relating to Lakeland is noted here. A woman was observed on the streetcar. The writer describes her as “big, fat, good natured colored woman” She boarded in the District of Columbia with a heavy bundle. When the car made a sudden stop the contents of her package, a turkey, fell to the floor. The woman picked up the bird and returned it to the container.
