About Ned Melmed

The following appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Thursday Morning, February 7, 1924, Page 20:

"Store Teams Lift Two More Scalps

"The Strawbridge & Clothier Juniors continued their long winning streak last evening by taking into camp the South Philadelphia Juniors by 43 to 22.

"The South been played. Philadelphia Juniors invaded Strawbridge Hall last Thursday evening, encountering the second team in a titanic battle, emerging on the long end of a 31-30 score after two five-minute extra periods had been played. The showing that they made was far superior to any of the second team's opponents this year and earned them the right to play the first junior team.

The following appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sunday Morning, March 13, 1927, Page 1, and Page 16:


"Rescuers Attracted as Second Woman Faints in Store Below

"Infant Stranded With Protector on Neighboring Roof Until Firemen Arrive

"Virtually trapped in a small, second story room, as smoke and flames rapidly spread through the store and dwelling at 1805 South Fifth Street yesterday afternoon, a mother and her three young children, frantic and almost hysterical, were rescued by four youths.

"The same youths also rescued Mrs. Joseph Rosenwasser, wife of the proprietor of the candy shop on the first floor of the building, who fainted while attempting to run to the rescue of the second floor family, Mrs. Florence Freud and her three children, Cecelia, 12 months old; May, 6 years old, and Irene, 8 years old.

"The youths, who were responsible for the safety of the two women and three children, are Theodore and Albert Escaurt, of 2537 South Darien Street, Henry Richmond, of 436 McClellan Street, and Nedland Melmed, of 428 Moore Street. Their ages range from 16 to 18 years.

"Shortly after 3 o'clock, Mrs. Rosenwasser dozed off on the step in front of the shop to be rudely awakened by the cry of a passing motorist that her store was on fire. While the motorist stopped to send in an alarm, Mrs. Rosenwasser started into the store to warn Mrs. Freud and her children.

"The four youths, passing along the streets, saw Mrs. Rosenwasser enter, and Theodore Escaurt followed her into the store, to come upon her as she fainted from the effects of the smoke and the fear of the flames. He carried her from the store and then, with the other three, dashed through the smoke-filled store, wet handkerchiefs over their noses, and up to the second floor where Mrs. Freud was screaming for aid.

"Albert Escaurt picked up Cecelia and, finding that escape by the main stairs was impossible, as the flames had already reached the bottom steps, started upwards and made his way to the roof through a trap door and thence to the roof of an adjoining dwelling.

"In the meantime Melmed took Irena, Richmond, May and Theodore Escaurt, Mrs. Freud and the latter, losing her fright, directed them to a rear stairway that led down and out to the kitchen. The smoke had not yet penetrated to that part of the large dwelling and all made their way out safely.

"Two Rescued From Roof

"As soon as firemen arrived, a ladder was sent up to the roof and Cecelia and her rescuer were helped down. In the meantime, Mrs. Rosenwasser recovered and shouted that her pet cat, "Tommy", was inside. She attempted to dash in, but was prevented by firemen, as by this time the entire store interior was a maze of flames and the second floor was burning.

"Later, when firemen had subdued the blaze, they entered and found that the cat had been overcome by smoke and then burned to death on the stairway. In an hour, the fire was extinguished. Loss was placed at about $5,000 by Joseph Rosenwasser, who returned as the firemen were battling the flames. The origin of the fire was undetermined. It had made rapid headway before discovered."

According to the Weather Channel, for the Philadelphia region:

"The 2 day December record of 21.0 inches set on December 26 to 27, 1909. The next highest was December 12th, 1960 when 14.6 inches fell."

So, Ned came in with a record snowfall, and left the same way.
