AIN'T NATURE WONDERFUL
You've all heard of Houdlni,
y'know, the bird that unpu:feles him
self from a straight jacket and gets a
divorce from handcuffs? Oh, yeh!
Well, yesterday we saw a fella
that'd make this Houdini guylook
'as agile as a clam in a bucketful of
coal. We skidded into a restaurant
at noon to take on fuel. One of
Next to us sat a wolf trying a
coast-fo-coast run across the coun
ter with his elbows.
Talk about a marvel! He was a
blue ribbon magnet, this wolf. He
could juggle his food as easily as a
-trained seal could juggle a ball and
could make hlt-the-mark attacks on
jLJrom any angle, like a drove of
sharks with a whale.
He was eating poached eggs and
was using his knife as a hod to navi
gate the hen-fruit up' to his food
channel. Well, sir, he wentat it like
six pigs over a pint pail of sour milk
and could make more sounds than a
symphony orchestra warming up.
Once in a while, to show how skill
ful he was, he'd let some egg do a
"Steve Brodie" off the knife and
spear' it with his mouth before it got
an inch from the counter.
Oh, he was a card. And all the
while his elbows were giving an imi
tation of a couple of windmills in a
cyclone. Then he ordered a tjup.of
coffee and we grabbed our Benny
and tent and did a Ted Meredith out
of the place in a rush because it look
ed as though it would be a wild night
on the moor when that wolf would
Wade into the Java.
