When three next door neighbors celebrate their birthdays simultaneously, the matter is worthy of the attention of the eminent Robert L. Ripley.  The celebrators are, left to right:  Mrs. Minnie Linscott, 65, 2132 Nash street; Bud Haggerty, 19, 2138 Nash street; and Mrs. Anna DeLaughter, 57, 2126 Nash street.  May 18 was the day, but the celebration had to be postponed until Seaman Haggerty could obtain a leave of absence from the Navy.
