Lana Turner 13

Bishop of Wall Street

Wall StreetBeing early enough to hear Daddy Hall, the self-styled Bishop of Wall Street, dealing with hecklers was worth a joke at our expense. One day, someone in the crowd tried to distract him by shouting, "What do you think of the Pope?" With a hearty laugh, Daddy replied, "I've never met the gentleman!" When he had finished speaking of the Savior, whom he had met, Church Army's turn came.✞

The Sweater Girl

Lana Turner Sweater GirlOur youth and the fact that we represented a well-known church in New York, kept the attention of our listeners. Another time, thousands more people unexpectedly poured out unto Broadway. Van loads of police also arrived and television cameras too. Though we had no idea who these people had come to see, we were not about to miss our chance. That evening, we saw ourselves on television with the commentary, "Over here is a little group preaching about sin" The star attraction was sadly not our Savior, but the famous and glamorous Lana Turner known as the Broadway Sweater Girl!
