BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) - As every veteran bartender, doctor, lawyer, newspaperman and minister knows, sooner or later almost anything can happen to anybody. Insurance claims adjustors, too, in time become familiar with the quirks of chance and the vagaries of human behavior. One of these, R. J. Bartum, claims vice president of State Farm Mutual and a man with a fine eye for the ridiculous ?.nd the unusual, collects as a hobby some of the odd cases his firm t has been called upon to settle. Here are a few: A Midwestern client summoned police after he smashed into a telephone pole. They immediately arrested him for a drunken driving. Denying the charge, he asked for a drunkometer test. When the drunkometer failed to' work, the man said, "I'm an electronics engineer, I'll fix it." He did, then took the test— and flunked.

In Arizona a man collected after he was dive-bombed by a near-sighted desert hawk who snapped the aerial from his moving car and flew off through the sky with it—apparently believing he had caught a snake. After his car had been stolen, a client had to rent: a new one. He retrieved his old car a few days later. The thief crashed into him after running a stop sign. A lady denied vehemently that she had been in an accident or had failed to pay a number of parking fines. Investigation proved ' her right. The guilty party had been driving around with his license plates upside down. His number was 660-898. Hers was 868-099.
