T HE kid, Keecee, is bright all
right. He sure gets Old Dave,
After he's been in the service sta
tion there's always something
missin', or the change is wrong. But
never any proof. He's slick or has
no nerves. Got away with things be
cause he'd pull them right in your
lace. Dave won't accuse him be
cause he wants to beat him at his
own game. Things are pulled so
often that Dave commences to feel
like a fool. To tell Keecee to stay
out would be no satisfaction. Dave's
too contrary himself for half-justice,
He wants to turn the tables.

back, opens the slide, takes a bag

checkerboard. He lays a coin at
Dave's elbow. Dave glances * '

Produces Fertilizer
The Seattle Housing authority had
to find some means of disposing of
fertilizer. So they founded a green
house at the Holly Park Homes
where shrubs and flowers are grown
for all the housing projects in Se
attle.
The authority became the produc
er of high-grade fertilizer as a by
product of the operation of a sewage
disposal plant at Sand Point Homes,
another of the Seattle housing proj
acts maintained for naval personnel
attached to a naval air station. The
commercial value of this type of
fertilizer approximated $75 per ton.

The lowly Dachshund is now up
among the ten dog breeds which lead
in the number of purebred registra
Uons in this country, according to the
Gaines Dog Research Center, New
York City, which states that a lot of
the credit for this achievement is due
to the efforts of the Dachshund Club
of America which this year celebrates
the golden jubilee of its affiliation
with the American Kennel Club.
Figures compiled by Joseph E. Bal
mer. Xenia. Ohio, show a sensational
to
is gain of Dachshund registrations in
1943 over the year 1926 of 5,789%. For
the same- years the Cocker Spaniel,
the leader in registrations, showed a
gain of 1,814% and Beagles a gain of
288%.
