Ben Siegel Becomes a Real Ladies Man
Ben Siegel, 61-year-old and brags about it, afraid of women all his life and admits it, has suddenly changed face about and become a ladies’ man and how. It seems that the girls’ glee club of a certain local institution was in the market for white sweaters, all fifty-five of the young women. Ben landed the order against all competition in nothing. Someone told Ben that it was his beauty, like that of the Greek God Apollo, that did the trick- rather than anything else, and he believed it- and that’s how Ben became a ladies’ man.
