Antiquated Dog Laws
D. C. Heads' Fault,
Citizens Group Told
Offering the antiquated dog laws
here and the inadequate budget of
the District dog pound as examples,
Harry P. Wender, president of the
Federation of Citizens’ Associations,
last night appealed for less “fuzzy
thinking" on the part of the District
Commissioners and Congress. He
spoke at a meeting of the George
town Citizens' Association.
In 1900. Mr. Wender said, the
District had one pound wagon and
in 1939 there was still only one
wagon despite the tremendous in
crease in population.
"The District is losing about $60,
000 a year through its failure to
superintend dog licensing adequate
ly. Mr. Wender stated.
The present campaign against
rabid dogs, he said, could have been
averted if the Commissioners had
listened to the appeals of the citizens’:
associations, which have been cam
paigning for the last eight years for j
!a larger budget for the dog pound.
The associations also have asked for j
[laws which permit unmuzzled dogs
1 to be. picked up even though they
iare licensed. Until the campaign)
|started, he said, licensed male dogs I
could not be picked up even if they
roamed the streets in packs,
Mr. Wender said that little of the
money received from dog licenses
was used to support the dog pound.
He asked for a two-way radio sys
tem in the pound wagons similar to
the ones the police have, so that a
rabid dog might be picked up soon
after being reported.
The association passed a resolu
tion favoring the Capital Transit
Co.’s request to replace 52 two-man
cars by the same number of one
man cars.
Mr. J. S. Gorrclle spoke on the
benefits of the Community War
Fund. s

Just take the cap off the Beech-Nut

My doctor told my mother that

experiences in the South Pacific.
"I was lucky," he said. “I had my
medical examination for promotion
to major in the line in the morning.
I was wounded in the afternoon, but
the report stood that I was physi
cally fit for the promotion. And I
was lucky that I was able to per
suade Capt., Don S. Knowlton (of
Washington) not to evacuate me by
plane to a base hospital. In about
four weeks I was up in the line, all
right except my left arm was a little
weak because a shell fragment had
tom away a muscle near the shoul

the Marines were relieved just be

That afternoon (September 2.
1942). according to the Secretary of
the Navy's citation of the Silver Star,
"after enemy naval bombardment

Cogswell organized fire-fighting par

shells, advanced at the head of his j
detachment, fighting the blaze until
he was painfully wounded by a shell j

valiant action, many lives and much
valuable equipment were saved.” 1
