B. MAX MEHL TESTIMONIAL DINNER, AUGUST 26, 1950

[This item is the second part of this week's Biblio-Battleship
game discussed above.  It's an excerpt from Numismatic
Gallery Monthly, September 1950, p10). -Editor]

 Over 100 friends of B. Max Mehl greeted "Mr. Coins" at a
 Testimonial Dinner in his honor on August 26th at the
 Schroeder in Milwaukee.  Col. Joseph Moss was a grand
 toastmaster and old-timer George Bauer and William Philpott
 spoke briefly about B. Max and their experiences with him.

 President Sheldon announced that the ANA had awarded our
 honored guest an Honorary Life Membership in the Association.
 The Max was presented with a beautiful plaque to commemorate
 the occasion.

 A swell fillet mignon dinner accompanied by the strains
 of popular and classical tunes was followed by songs by
 the Hi-Lo Barbershop Quartette.  All in all a grand time
 for a grand guy.

[It's interesting that this random library selection would
bring us back to Dr. Sheldon, whose account of Old Cent Whist
inspired this game.  And William Philpott shows up for the
second time in this issue.  Can anyone tell us more about
him?  -Editor]
