Just before leaving home, the party stopped into a restaurant for a bite to eat and when they came to leave, Brooks took the only coat remaining on the coat rack and came home under the impression that he was wearing his own coat. The next day the owner of the coat called up on the telephone and through Pete Warlum got in touch with Herb, with the result that Herb has his own coat and is no longer masquerading in another man’s clothes.
