Johnny Woods, human fly, climbed the Central Hotel building in Mauch Chunk this evening and presented a program of daredevil stunts, assisted by his wife, the former Evelyn Peschel, of East Mauch Chunk. The Woods arrived in town recently in their trailer from a tour that included California, Texas, and Mexico. Among the stunts Woods did was carry his wife on his shoulders along the edge of the building, while he was blindfolded. Woods also balanced himself on his head while standing on the building's ledge.
