    TRANSCRIPT:



    REPORTER: They call themselves the Kings of the road, to us they are hobos. At one time, hundreds of these hobos wandered the country, usually by boxcart or slow-moving freight, stooping only now and again to pick up an odd job. This weekend, most of the few remaining hobos in the country, are in Britt, Iowa for the National Hobo's Convention. Since 1930, hobos have been coming to Britt to the annual convent, to view for the title "hoboking"........and the reigning King is Slow motion Shorty.



    SHORTY: I get a lot of mail addressed to Slow motion Shorty.......for the last four or five years".



    REPORTER: The Hobo Convention has been quite a show.
