"Lenore Carter, waitress in a downtown cafe, decides to have some fun with an unsuspecting customer, Pat Inge (right), by pouring salt into Pat's coffee while the latter is conversing with a smirking companion, Lorine Rundle. Lenore's act was all in fun, though, as today is April Fool's Day. Photographer Chuck Sundquist didn't hang around to see how Pat enjoyed the 'fun.'" [Long Beach Press-Telegram - Apr 1, 1952]
