Others Arrive Destitute

Chicago Tribune


Two men and a girl from Sweden, Oscar Hedmann, Carl Johnson, and Anna Sjoblom, spent several hours in Chicago yesterday on their way west. All found themselves in New York without a cent. They were taken to an immigration home and clothed and fed. Finally Hedmann wired to a former employer in St. Paul, who sent some money, which Hedmann divided so that the three could get west.
