 CANANDAIGUA DAILY MESSENGER  Friday  January 24, 1936      by:  Ron Hanley
Rumor relates that  John M. "Jack" Moynihan, manager of the Webster Hotel, has stolen a march on Fred Astaire, who upon becoming the proud
father of a son born Tuesday, celebrated the event with an enthusiastic display of toe frippery and thereafter left the matter to rest with the
newspapers and screen magazines.
 Not so casual is Jack, according to the current story. At one time a tap dancing headliner in vaudeville, he is said to have reached back into his old time bag of tricks, and dusting off the elements of his best steps of former days, originated a new succession of steps which he has called, " the John Peter Moynihan monotone tap," which title comprises the name he and Mrs. Moynihan have selected for their son, also born on Tuesday.
It is said that a demonstration of the new birthday step will be made for selected friends of the family in the near future.

Sprankle Reviews Serious Situation In Flooded Region
Familiar with conditions in the vicinity of Cairo, Ill. during flood periods, interesting comment on the present disaster was voiced today by Floyd A. Sprankle, of Chapel Street, who passed through the region several years ago when the river valleys were inundated.
Traveling by train from Jackson, Miss. to St. Louis Missouri, Mr. Sprankle said the train was seven hours late on the run and barely won through with the swirling waters rushing against the firebox of the locomotive.
Boats and rafts carrying refugees floated past along the path of the train, houses and barns were seen with little more than their roofs above water, he said, and often as far as one could see there was only the rushing water of the flood.
Here in Canandaigua, said Mr. Sprankle, it is difficult for us to conceive the hardship and loss experienced when the great rivers of the Mid West go on the rampage.

Robert L. Forman, Slain Youth, Kin of Canandaiguans
Bullet Pierced Body of College Student Found In Car In Ellison Park
Robert L. Forman, 18, of Pittsford, whose bullet riddled body was found at 7:30 A. M. today in the rear seat of his automobile on a lonely bridle path off Blosom Road at the west end of Ellison Park, Rochester, was well known in Canandaigua, having several relatives here. He was a
frequent visitor in the city and on the lake shore.
A sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania he had been missing since 12:30 A.M. Monday. Sheriff Albert Skinner of Monroe County said
the victim was apparently shot at least five times from the right hand front seat of the car in which two 32 caliber shells were found. There was no sign of a gun the sheriff said.
[From here on in the newspaper the left most edge of the article is somewhat obliterated and some words are difficult to distinguish.]
The youth was a cousin of Mrs. Edward T. Hanley, Mrs. John Flood, Miss Lena Engert of Canandaigua, and a nephew of Frank Leaper of Pittsford, a summer resident of the Beecher tract, West Lake Shore.
The body of the murder victim, son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Forman, the family which operates L. Forman and Son Inc., Pittsford,
products factory, was discovered by two horsemen who were the first to ride through the desolate area this morning.
The pair, Joseph Tette, 26, 93 Bloss Street, and Frederick Tremiti,26, of 59 Jerold Street, patrons of the Hillcrest Stables near the spot, saw the body when they peered into the rear seat of the parked vehicle, a 1941 sedan recently purchased by the family.
Monroe County Authorities, led by Sheriff Skinner, District Attorney Daniel J. O'Mara and State Police Sergt. William Ireland, Pittsford, sped to the scene upon notification.
Coat Torn, Teeth Missing
Forman's suit coat was torn and two upper front teeth were missing. Investigators found a wallet containing $ 5.53 in his pocket, dispelling a robbery motive.  The youth's father said his son was accustomed to picking up hitchhikers along the road from Rochester to Pittsford.
Police were notified the youth was missing after he failed to appear early Monday morning after taking home a young woman who live in Averill Avenue.  Description of the youth and car were broadcast to eight states and Canada. State Police investigated as far as Canandaigua and Jamestown where a former roommate of Forman was asked if he had appeared there. He had not.

Soft glow of lighted tapers in candelabreas and on window sills, with a background of evergreens and blue lighted Christmas trees, formed an effective setting for the wedding Sunday of Miss Mildred R. Johnson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ray W. Johnson, Perry Place, to Jack F. Gaarde, of Schenectady, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Gaarde, of McCook, Nebraska.
The ceremony was performed in the Methodist Church by the Rev. Webster D. Meleher, pastor, before a large assemblage of relatives and friends. Miss Isabelle W. Johnson, this city, cousin of the bride, played the wedding marches and gave a short recital preceding the service.

I., maid of honor, Miss Janet Gaarde, McCook, Nebraska, sister of the bridegroom, and Miss Ethel Douglass, Canandaigua, cousin of the bride, bridesmaids, and Joan Johnson and Suzanne Camp, this city, nieces of the bride were flower girls.
