"Young Morris Still Able to Drink Plenty" - 16 May 1933

"Moses Morris, 97, isn't as good a man as he used to be. His years are beginning to tell on him. Time was when he could drink anything - whisky, cognac, beer, or wine. He has softened up. Now he qualifies the 'anything.' 'Yes, sir,' said the youngest 97 year old man in San Francisco yesterday. 'I drink anything as long as it has a kick to it.' Mr. Morris, who lives at 357 Fifteenth Avenue, is one of the senior B'nai B'rith lodge members of San Francisco. He joined Hope Lodge, No. 126, at Stockton back in 1869. In 1914 they held the golden jubilee of the lodge up at Stockton. Mr. Morris was the only surviving charter member present. Now the children of those who were present at the jubilee and have passed on, ask him to tell about it. He comes downtown whenever he feels like it, 'hasn't been beaten since the Civil War at pinochle,' and is planning to save his pennies for a trip around the world when he is 110. When he gets old he plans to stay home and take it easy, but now --- 'I hate to stick around the house! Don't you?' quoth he."
