    By the time he was 20, Sherman and his brothers had organized their own whiskey-running ring in dry Oklahoma City. Now Billingsley needed a favor back. Billingsley always had the last word. Billingsley was irrationally anti-union. His nights on Broadway were spent with Lahiff who went on to open a club at 48th St. When he entered the room you paid attention.

    After he spent a few months The stork club book jail, Billingsley got his conviction overturned, and he hurried back to New York. A vast deal of bother has from time to time been raised over the almost fanciful advantages of stirring over shaking Martinis. Bar practice at the Stork favors the noncontroversial stirring or spooning, but the management will oblibe by having them componded in a cement mixer or butter churn if that is what the customer wants. That month, at Guinan's urging, Winchell arrived in the Stork Club, liked what he saw and described it in his column as ''New York's New Yorkiest place. News accounts show conflicting statements from the Ricos.

But on the eve of Prohibition, the law finally caught up to the Billingsley gang; all were arrested by the feds, and Sherman was sentenced to 15 months in Leavenworth. Celebs would clamour for his table. The Stork Club opens at 11 am for the benefit of late breakfasters. Billingsley swiftly found a safer racket, peddling real estate in the booming Bronx. He was carrying some serious folding money too.
