One night the sewer backed up in the middle of the club. I think Arthur decided to have the manhole cover removed and try to clear the obstruction with a broom stick . One of the bus boys with bus pan lifted over his head walked across the room and disappeared into the muck. All you could see was the bus pan and two hands. Some say it was Walter D. Everyone kept telling me the poor guy had developed Typhoid or Cholera due to his ill-fated dip.
