Postman Finds Dogs Friendly Daytona Beach, Fla., (/P)—Postman Johnny Jones, who has been carrying the mail 14 years, has a few observations on dogs: "I no trouble with big ones. People are just scored of their size..It's the little ones that are yappiest and which will chase you. "Ninety per cent of the dogs I've met are friendly: The others are the reserved type, not necessarily mean but stand-offish. First thing I do when I meet a new dog is whistle and talk to QUALITY DIAMONDS ADY'S WATCH SHOP him in a friendly voice. The thing to do is be friendly, but don't push it. "If you're riding a bicycle, remember it's the bike the dog is barking at. Get off and walk until the animal gets to know you. Never act afraid; don't threaten a dog. Don't pick up a stick be- cause you may startle.him intt attacking you. Troubles with dogs are mostly caused by humans anyway. Handle a dog right am he'll respond in a friendly way « Largest of the Egyptian pyra mids has an estimated weight o 5 million tons.
