Louisville , like all other American cities , was celebrating the day with parades and various ceremonies . Mr . Ford noticed a perfectly natural spirit of hilarity among the crowds on the street .

Not long ago in the VAUDEVILE NEWS columns I saw a squib that went something like this : This world would be a better one , remarked Granddaddy Delves , If folks would boost each other more , and talk less bout themselves .
