Randy Stone who covers the night beat for the Chicago Tribune normally couldn’t walk a downtown block without saying hello to half a dozen people couldn’t find one lousy bum who’d be his friend tonight on Christmas Eve with five days holiday ahead of him. Back at the office an envelope on his desk contained 50 cents and a note, which just said, “God Bless you Mr Stone, signed Catherine Malloy.” Randy didn’t know any Catherine Malloy and thought it was some office joke. But Mrs Malloy knew Randy and had never forgot the kindness he had showed her some years ago. That night Randy learned the magic of the words Merry Christmas.
