Alert reader George Allison sent me this news brief from the East Liverpool Evening Review. It appeared on page 10 of the East Liverpool, OH, newspaper on Monday, October 4, 1915. George noted, “Came upon this in my files… Gambling in the park.”
Headline: Raid Poker Game
Four young men were arrested at Rock Springs park yesterday by Chief of Police Householder and Constable Allison on a charge of gambling. The quartet were apprehended during a poker game. They were given a hearing in the court of Justice A. G. Allison and were released upon the payment of costs in the case.
