Odds Frank Caliper, Mayor of Colp, announced Friday of last week- that he is not dead. Caliper'was sure of it. He was neither machine- gunned nor shot at, to hear Caliper tell it, rumors and reports to the contrary notwithstanding.. 1 . . -"i-don't know .where the rumor sfarteaV."-0»e .said -'^'People •'have been driving me -crazy. They look at me twice to make -sure I'm alive" He said county police had called at his home and that people had driven to Colp to see him. Williamson county sheriff Lawrence Cannon investigated. A deputy sent to Caliper's house reported that Caliper had gone to work. A Colp tavernist said the report claimed the man h,nd been shot at his place, but said he had not seen Caliper the night he was reported shot. Okay, If it is alright with the Mayor it's alright with us. He wisn't shot. Generally they don't pay much attention to shootings over "No. 9" way. But this was the Mayor who was NOT shot.
