There was some real snow-balling on Tucson's streets News Year's Eve. Those who were in the vicinity of Rossi's corner didn't realize immediately what was hitting them, but when they did there was a dash for the "snow bank," and several people had some enjoyment.

The snow-balling was made possible by Walter Wakefield, Louis Aguierre and a companion, in an automobile. The party had been to Oracle and brought back a couple of potato sacks filled with snow. They made their presence known to the crowd by knocking off hats, until the assaulted ones made a run for the auto, and got a few balls themselves.
