standing  traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to congratu-
late Anthony Mancinelli upon  the  occasion  of  celebrating  his  102nd

earn extra money to help his family; and

able age of 102, Anthony Mancinelli continues to cut hair at Antonio and
Pasquale Mugnano's Barber Shop in Vails Gate, New York; and

achievements  of  this country during the last century, while themselves
