Week of March 6, 1955
Two-year-old David Burkett is an ardent television fan. He wanted his grandmother, Elizabeth Burkett, to turn on the set when he got up this morning, but Mrs. Burkett decided against it so early in the morning. That made David mad. He waited until his grandmother went outdoors for a moment, then he locked the door. She could see David perched on a chair and the television going full blast. He didn't pay any attention to his grandmother rapping on the window. So, Mrs. Burkett went to a neighbor's house and phoned a son to come with his key to open the door.
David had held the fort for about an hour and he got a smack for locking his grandmother out.
