Today, Mr. Laws, who is employed at Schultz Bros, in Algona, has 14 different breeds of dogs on the acreage. He is shown above with one of the dogs from their kennel, Olaf, 13-month old St. Bernard. The Laws started their Noni D Kennel and wholesale puppy business last August after purchasing and moving to the Siocren residence. • There are 14 different breeds of registered pedigreed dogs in the Laws Kennel, acquired from private persons or kennel stock, and all used for breeding purposes. When the puppies are seven or eight weeks old, they are shipped by air to "Puppy Centers" in New York, Connecticut, Texas, Chicago, Kansas City, Omaha and Sioux Falls A noisy business? "Not particularly," said Mr. Laws, "the dogs are kept subdued by a radio that plays in the kennel 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This keep them from hearing outside noises and becoming upset." Besides the St. Bernard shown above he has Wire-haired Terriers, Elkhound, Samoyed, Standard Poodle, Keeshond, Rat Terrier Pugs Great Dane, Afghan, Old English Sheep Dog, Airedale, German Shepherd and German Shorthairs. | Although this is chiefly a wholesale puppy business, the dogs may also be purchased retail by individuals. , Exclusive Advance Photo.

While moving his platoon across an area of heavy fire, Lt. Waldera received orders to occupy an area which another platoon had been forced to leave after suffering heavy casualties. Lt. Waldera moved his pi toon into the new position an led an attack ag&< <st the hea\ jly fortified eru.,uj positions in the area, fi s\g his weapon and throwing hand grei.ades. The attack carried to within 10 yards of the ei.omy positions and Lt. V'ajfiera and his platoon quickly Knocked out two of the enemy bunkers in the early moments of what was to be four hours of intense fighting. Four hours later, Lt. Waldera was ordered to move his platoon to another area, but during t'he move, he was badly burned by a phosphorous grenade, leaving him partially blind and in severe pain. In spite of his wounds, Lt. Waldera refused medical ev? cuation and continued to move among his men giving advice and encouragement. Lt. Waldera is now executive officer of Company A, 2nd Battalion of the division's 14th Infantry. He was stationed at Ft. Benning, Ga., before arriving in Vietnam in March of this year. He holds the Purple Heart Medal and three awards of the Air Medal.
