Caddo Herald, June 18, 1915
“Our townsman, good roads booster, and accommodating druggist, W.F. Dodd is a great friend of Senator Gore. We might also say that he is some goer himself.
Last Saturday he was expecting a packer of a special kind of ice cream from Durant, but it failed to come on the one o’clock train as was ordered, and to keep from disappointing the hostesses, it must be here by 4:30.
Mr. Dodd happened to remember that telephones and Ford cars were invented to use in an emergency, and he got busy with the firm, and told them he would be there in a minute for it: and by the time they had it packed he and W.H. Robbins were there in his Ford. They left Caddo at 2:45, and got back at 4:20, just an hour and thirty-five minutes for the trip- and they had to wait some time in Durant.
The cream was delivered on time, the ladies were glad, and Dodd’s reputation as an accommodating druggist was saved.
They do say, however, that Robbins don’t want to make any more of these flying trips.”
