That is the call of the tamalera, they known to those of us who reside in the Hispanic neighborhoods, a siren song that wakes us to church, to industry, but mostly to meat and masa in husk. But treat these folk well; James Couts, a sash and door worker playing a game of ball at 38th and Santa Fe yesterday, was knifed repeatedly by a tamale peddler after some trouble about payment.
In other news, the rash of burglaries continues to increase as Fiesta nears. A. C. Nagle was brutally assaulted, and robbed of his diamond ring and Elks pin, at Ocean Park last night. Rings were stolen from 936 East 31st, and silverware and clothing from 210 East 16th.
Nearer town, in a restaurant on North Main Street, James Selagar and Pedro Fierros fought a furious knife duel, sending both, after their arrest, to Receiving Hospital for treatment.
