The Alec Smarts of 1922

After last week’s scandal, the November 30th issue of the Sargent Leader in 1922 lamented another problem of the youth in Sargent. Apparently, a gang of young boys was yelling insulting remarks at passersby, striking some ladies, and being little thieves.  

“We will not be surprised to hear of some of these little Alec Smarts sent sprawling to the sidewalk.”
