Mayor Is Sure He Can Carry Dinnie Stones CHAMP, Mo. (AP) — Mayor Bill Bangent of the tiny industrial village of Champ has bet the Lord Mayor of Aberdeen, Scotland, a "wee dram" of scotch that he can lift the famed Dinnie Stones and carry the 775 pounds five yards. Bangert, a 48-year-old, 280- poiinder, said only two other men have been able to lift the stones in well over a century and only one of these two could cawy them. Bangeirt plans to accomplish the feat June 11 while he is in Scotland for the world cabar throwing championship. Ranged; set a world's record In the highlaind games at Alma, Mich.., Saiturday by tossing a 56-pound weight over a bar 16 feet, 1% inches afeove the ground and is warming up for his stone-lifting by a daily lift of 1,000 poundls at his home. He uses a harness around his waist rigged to a 150-year-old wagon wheel lifting platform.. It would seem Bangert would have little trouble tossing the cabar — a log that weighs about 125 pounds. But he did. "I feU on my rear end in front of the queen," Bangert said, recalling his misstep land slip. The Dinnie Stones — weighing 345 and 430 pounds — were counterweights on a hoist used in the construction of a bridge over the River Dee. In 1855, the legendary Dinnie Donald Diranie — IB-years old at the time — picked up both stones and moved them the width of the bridge — five yards — to get them out of the way. His father was in charge of repairing the old bridge. Bangert said only one other person has managed to lift the stones since that time. A Scot named Sid Strachen did it just recenitly. However, he said Strachen could not walk with the big boulders. Big Bill says he knows he can lift the stones. "It's walking wiltih them that's the problem, because at one time or other all the weighlt is on one foot," he said. r J HENRY HALL AGENCY FOR HOLIDAY THINKING — "IF EVERYONE" If «veryon« who drives a car could lie a month in bed With broken bones and stitched up wounds, or fractures of the head, And there endure the agonies that many people do, They'd niever need preach safety any more to me or you. If everyone could stand beside the bed of some clos,» fri«nd, And hear the doctor say "no hope" before the final end. And $** him theirs unconscious, never knowing what took place TKe law and rules of traffic I am sure we'd soon embrace. If everyone could meet the wife and children left behind, And step into the darkened home where onoe the sunlight shined. And look upon "The Vacant Chair" where Daddy used to sit, I am jure such reckless drivers would be forced to think a bit. If everyone who takes the wheel would say a little prayer, And keep in mind those in the ear depending on his care, And make a vow and pledge himself to never take a chance, The Greatest Crusade for safety then would suddenly advance.

They all seem happy to me. They dress well, most of them drive good cars and they can't be hungry from the size of the grocery orders they buy from Stoners and others. We have had the same workers from Texas trade with us ye ar after year. A few I have helped with a little credit when they first arrived and only one ever stuck me and it was only $9.00. I think he forgot it when he left. So, maybe things are not as bad as Mr. Fierro says. We will leave it up to the 9 member committee and see what they decide. Signed Ha.
