Ashmead Has Novel New Year’s Card

Issue 2 and Volume 80.

Ashmead Has Novel New Year’s Card To the members of the salvage and fire departments who are on the mailing list of John Ashmead, engineer of the National Board of Fire Underwriters, the reprinting below of his New Year’s wish may have lost some of its news value. Deviating from the customary custom of sending New Year’s cards, Mr. Ashmead has printed the following verse on small pieces of waterproof canvas to bring to mind the well known salvage covers: Happy New Year A syuarr or turn of ranuas, A squeegee in the band Stems the flood And clears the mud And makes a saluage man; Away with Christmas Carols. They’re hardly morth a damn; The song me’d hear This glad New Year Begins: Tom Dry I Am!” Best mishes from John Ashmead
