At three weeks, therefore, it is a good idea to start supplementary feeding by teaching the pups to lap a bit oC warm milk. Since bitch's milk contains n higher percentage of Butter fat than cow's milk, a little butter or olco melted in Is good — or use evaporated milk. Goat's milk is excellent. 1 When the pups are lapping well 1 they can be taken from thc bitch 1 sometimes as early as four or five weeks. It is always a good idea of course, to let them taper off slowly so that the bitch doesn't get caked breasts. I have sometimes seen bitches with their teats badly chewed up. There is no excuse for allowing pups to stay with a bitch long ' to cause this kind of mu- with thc accompanying self or hasn't sufficient or milk for the pups they should weaned as soon as possible, ii not switched Immediately to a bottle or another nurse. Figure on supplementing at four weeks and weaning at five, and whatever you do, make it possiblo for the bitch to get away from the pups when she wishes. Even the most loving mother enjoys some respite from the brood once in a while and perhaps a bit o£ social life. (Distributed by NEA Service) Don °f lilatii pain. In rbslies between U.

Raikes angled through u canyon, led the way over a ridge, into another canyon and onto a trail. U made several loop- 1ns twists around mountain spurs. Blaise's initial anger passed aad-he pulled up beside Raikes. "Who is Thatcher?" he asked. "A rich gont from the East," Raikes replied readily. "Made shoes back there and sold 'em all over world, 1 reckon. He's got more dollars'n the San Fernando's got grass." "Why'd he come out here?" "He decided he could let some of his hired hands make shoes for him.

Sanders. 220-pound Negro giant from Los Angeles, led a contingent of five Americans into the next-lo- I round last night by chilling Giacomo Disengni of Italy in the third round. Feverish Olympic ring fans had expected the sleep-dealing American next to catch the pride of the Soviet, Aljgirdas Schocikas. But Schocikas, a 25-year-old southpaw with a soporific punch, was knocked out by South Africa's Alfred Nieman, in the major shocker of the tournament. I A lean lefthander with the kick B"»d i of a mule, Nieman levelled the ho; mighty, 230-pound Russian with a left to the chin in thc opening round. Some 7,000 fans in the Messuhalle went wild. America's other survivors were lifjht heavyweight Norvel Lee, 25, of Washington. D. C.; middleweight Floyd Patterson of Brooklyn, N. Y.; light - welterweight Charles Adkins, 20. of Gary, Ind., and flyweight Nate Brooks, 18, of Cleveland. Patterson and Lee also scored knockouts. In the semi-finals Brook sineets Willie Towcel of South Africa, brother of world bantamweight champion Vic Toweol; Adkins takes on Italy's Bruno Visinlin.

CHAPTER ELEVEN THEY came out of the canyoi and Blaise suddenly drew rein Halkes had said it was a fine house but thc actual sight of it was a joltinpr surprise. It stood on n Hat top hill, ft veritable castle. It was of brick and timber and Blaise lm< never seen so many windows. Thcj overlooked tho ocean, still some distance away beyond thc lowct hills. "That's it—Thatcher's phij ranch, mister. Think you can buck H man with dincro like that?" Blaise stiffened. "I i n t c n d to Wherc'll Thatcher be?" "Up at tho house, likely." "Then ride to the house." Haikcs shook his head. "You don't do it that way on this spread. Vou get an appointment to see W. K.—or an invitation. Yon ain't got one." Blaise laughed. 'Tve got the best —Judge Colt." "I got forty men working under me," Raikes said without haste and squinted toward the corrals. "They won't like to see a gun on me, mister. Neither will Thatcher. Blaise lifted his gun from the holster. "If anyone starts trouble, you'll get the first bullet." Uaikes studied h i in, shrewdly, picked up the reins. "You're just making it harder." Blaise signaled him forward. The three riders approached the buildings and halted within a few yards of them when a man stepped from the barn. "What's wrong ?" he asked sharply. "Faro, you need help?" Raikes sucked in his lips. "The gent wants to see W. K., Luke." "But why hold a gun on you, Faro?" "The gent." Kaikes lifted his thumb toward Blaise, "decided it was a quick way to see the Boss." "Mister, has Faro done you anything wrong?" "No," Blaise said coldly, "but your boss has stolen some land of mine—claimed he bought it. I aim to s«e him." Luke's face hardened. He seemed to slouch, but BlaUe grew more alert, eyes centarlng on the man. He realised that perhaps he had been a bit headstrong to bring Raikes in like this, but a man had to start to 8gjxt sometime. Luke spoke softly.

"The Boss Is from back East, Luke replied icvelly. "He's a rin{ tailed terror but he probably don know n butt from a muzzle of Colt. He ain't no land stealcr." "Who stole land!" Blaise'a head jerked around. Th girl had climbed up on the corra and she balanced on the top ra: She dropped to thc ground an came striding to the group. Blais looked more closely. The smoky blue eyes snapped angrily now. He hair had n dull, coppery glow in th sun. She no longer wore a tailorcc costly suit; but jeans, a plaid shir and small, high-heeled boots. She came to a halt n few fee away, liaiids on her slender hips glaring up at Blaise. "My fnthc never stole anything! And yoi can—" Recognition dawned. "You W li y y o u'r c thc man on thi stage-!" Blaise reddened, shoved thc gun in the holster and jerked off his, hat. :—yes, ma'am, it's me." H_ looked around astounded. "You live here?" "I'm Rennie Thatcher," she said Her voice grew sharp. "What's this about Dad stealing land? What's Karo done that you drive him in ike a ... a criminal?" "Maybe I swung too wide oop," Blaise answered. He added desperately, "Caji I sec your dad ? You certainly can!" she snapped. Her glance swept the men. "It's all right boys. You'l 'ollow me, Mr. . . . ? Mr. . . . ?' "Randcll, ma'am, Blaise Randell." "You can leave your horses at he corral. I'm sure no one wil steal them." Blaise reddened and dismounted. Raikes swung off his horse. Rennie strode away up the road to the big louse. Blaise, Hal and Raikes fol- owed her. Rennie pushed open the door of he house and strode inside. A young woman in a black dress and Ittle white cap appeared. "Where's Father?" "In the library, mademoiselle." Rennie turned sharply to the eft, tapped lightly on a door and uished it open. The men followed ler. The room was almost as large as Blaise's whole ranch house and elegantly furnished. A man arose rom a deep chair. He was portly, but his face-was rawboned, strong, the blue eyes mperious. An iron-gray mustache ust managed to soften his stern lips. "What's this?" he demanded. What is this, Rennie?" Raikes spoke first. "I run onto these two on Montanas land, and told 'em to git off." 'He claims," the girl cut in, that you've stolen land." "Stolen!" Thatcher's voice lifted i»d then he grew choleric. "Stol*y Why you young whippersnapperTl never stole a square inch of land rota anyone ia my We. By Gad. "It's still my land, sir," Rlalse said stubbornly. "I bought it morc'n ton years ago." Thatcher glared at him and then sensed that Blaise spoke simple truth. He looked at Raikes, Rennie, then sharply back at his foreman. "Where'd you find him?" "Ten miles this side of the Encino boundary." "That, sir, is my land," Thatcher snapped. "It's mine. I bought it fair and square, nnd I never sold it." Thatcher grunted angrily. "Wait a minute, young man. I have something to show you." He strode out of the room. Rennie walked to one of the windows and Blaise covertly watched her. If anything, she. was far prettier than she had been on the stagecoach. She must nave been thinking of that day, too, for she turned suddenly. "Did they ever catch the bandits?" 'I don't know. I've been too busy since to find out." "That was a very brav* thing you did—both of you," she stated simply. Blaiso made an *.mbar- rassed gesture of denial. "But it was. I shan't forget it. , . ." Just then Thatcher came back into thc room. Blaise read the dislike and determination in the man's eyes. "Your name, sir?" he demanded. "Blaise Randell." "I thought so. You've got nerv« to come into my house and claim stole land from you. It's like your kind!" "Now wait," Blaise cut Jn, an- :ered, "I don't—" "You wait, sir! You were found juilty of murder and sent to San Quentin. You did own that stretch of land, but it went tax delinquent. Ct was sold two years ago. I bought t last year. "Tax delinquent!" Blaise gasped. Thatcher glared at him. "Exactly. I supposp you had some crooked scheme of frighten- ng me into buying it from you a second time. It won't work, sir. I advise you to forget it." Blaise pulled himself together. 'You've not got the whole story, sir. I've been released and—" "Verdict reversed?" Thatcher demanded. "Pardoned." Thatcher's mustache quivered. Then California has a very poor governor. I still ask you to get out, Rennie stood just beyond Thatch- r, her eyes wide with shock. She ooked questioningly at Blaise, lifted her hand and let it drop Blaise asked, "You have a deed o that property?" "Duly recorded." "Then I apologize for thinking r-ou stole my land," Blaise said to strained voice, Thatcher grunted "Accepted, sir, but plcaae leave Friday, August 1, 1952 BLONDII ^-- - . _ hll!l!l!!JIIIII! |r ! x-v.PV x HOPI STAR, HOP1, A * K A N S A 8 By Chick Young .
