Elvis Egged at Arena- ‘Gittar’ Gets the Yolk
While teen-age girls went to the Elvis Presley show at the Arena last night to shout, squirm and gyrate, four Villanova University male students attended for still another reason—to pelt the performer with eggs.
Lt. John Ford. of the Juvenile Aid Bureau, said Presley was doing a number at 9:40 P. M, when a barrage of eggs sailed toward the stage. There were no direct hits.
About five of the eggs splashed on the stage. Another struck the gold – clad performer’s “gittar” which was on the floor.
The egg found its way inside the instrument and put it out of commission for 10 minutes while musicians labored backstage to clean it up.
Presley called the thrower an “idiot” and announced, “I’m ready for him any time.”
Ford asked the spectators where the eggs came from. Numerous fingers readily pointed at the four students.
In the pocket of one, William Quinn, 20, of New York City, Ford said he found a still unthrown egg. It was seized for evidence.
Quinn and his companions—_William B. Oates. 21, of Brooklyn; James Stark. 20. of Greenport, N.Y.; and John Eidt, 20, of New York City——were hustled out of the Arena and to the 55th and Pine sts. station.
They were charged with disorderly conduct and will have a hearing this morning before Magistrate William Cibotti.
RUNAWAY GIVES UP
Police handled still another case arising from the show, but this was of an entirely different nature.
It seemed that Marion Shanhart, 14; of Rochester, N, Y., had $14 and a yen for Presley. Leaving her home at 4 A. M., she arrived in Philadelphia 13 hours later by
bus with just enough left to buy a ticket for the show.
After the show, she gave up to police. A policewoman called her parents who arranged to get her this morning. She spent the night in the Hearth, a girls’ shelter, at 5th and Pine sts.
