SAILOR'S RUSE

TOOK BEER TO DANCE

BOTTLE STRAPPED TO LEG

"Apparently bell-bottom trousers are made for this purpose," said Mr. J. H. Luxford, S.M., in the Police Court to-day, when imposing a fine of £2 and costs on a naval rating for unlawfully having liquor in his possession in the vicinity of a dance hall. There was laughter in the Court when a constable described the incident which led to the charge being brought against the bluejacket. "I saw the sailor near the entrance t« the dance hall," he said. "He rolled up one leg of his bell-bottomed trousers and then strapped a bottle of beer to his leg, below the knee, using a civilian tie and a handkerchief for the purpose. I followed him into the dance hall and caught him consuming the beer."
