NYACK, N.Y., TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 1966 THE ROCKLAND COUNTY JOURNAL-NEWS - 23 Lady Pinkham, Queen of Fat Cats, Enjoys Royalty By JOE DINE EN Fat Cat Editor Lady Pinkham, the Queen of Rockland County's Fat Cats, is enjoying her new role as royalty. The 20 pound Queen, who was crowned by The Journal-News Saturday to climax the Fat Cat Contest which had run lor three weeks, has suddenly become more affectionate than ever be-fore, according to her owner Mrs. Rita Glynn of Blauvelt. "She is the funniest thing we have seen," said Mrs. Glynn. "She has been so affectionate since she was crowned Saturday. Usually she is rather haughty." ' MRS. GLYNN said the secret to Pinky's success is eating constantly. However, the real secret may be variety. "Pinky is exceptionally well fed," said Mrs. Glynn. "She also gets a different meal every day." Pinky's story has been one full of success since she was found by the Glynn children, Rita Eileen, who will be 12 years old soon, and Thomas, 15, more than five years ago. She was found abandoned, stuffed in a paper bag which was stuck in the middle of a bush. She was no more than six weeks old, scrawny and suffering from a case of rickets. QUEEN PINKY was a real sight when the Glynn children brought her home. She was hungry and lonely because she was away from her mother, maybe a little too soon. The Glynns nursed Lady Pinkham back to good health and she has been growing ever since. Pinky is nqt the only feline in the Glynn family. She has a few brothers and sisters and then there are several friends from the neighborhood who constantly visit the household. "I think with animals, it is a case of food," said Mrs. Glynn. "They all get along with each other as long as they are fed. Our cats play with a skunk who comes around the house every now and then. Since there is always food outside, everyone seems to get along. "I LIKE TO make sure the cats are well fed so they won't harm the birds. We even have one of the dogs in the neighborhood come to' see what the Glynns have to offer today." Saturday was a big day for Rita Eileen, even though she was a bit nervous handling her fat feline. But she was confident. "She waj so proud of Pinky," said Mrs. Glynn "But she thought Pinky should have won because she was the biggest and the prettiest. Now she wants to go into more cat shows." RITA WILL be able to talk about Queen Pinky for one year. Then a new queen will be chosen by The Journal-Newi. Of course, the new queen must be the fattest in the county. Besides Rita's big day, It was a big day all around for the Glynns. "We apapreciated every moment of it," said Mrs. Glynn. "And we still haven't stopped talking about it. It also enlightened us because we saw so many people who Just like cat and take care of them Just for affection. They were also somo of the nicest people." To Help Local Show ! TtV ; ' ? ,n Rockland's Big Need -More Cat Breeders By JOE DINE EN' Sports Editor Rockland County is in need of more cat breeders. This fact was evident Saturday afternoon during the Northern Valley Cat Fanciers championship cat show at Lamplighters Hall, New City. Breeders came from as far as Long Beach, Calif, and Canada to participate in the Northern Valley club's first annual cat ehow, but only six entries were received from Rocklnad County residents. "WE NEED MORE breeders In Rockland County," said a tired Mrs. Kenneth Withstand-dley late Sunday afternoon. "I guess Rockland 6hould feel ashamed of itself with the turnout. I just hope the show attracts more people from this area to show their cats." Mrs. Withstandley wasn't trying to be critical of the county because if Its small turnout at the show. She would Just like to have more people become interested in breeding felines and ihowing their cats, especially at a local show. The Northern Valley Cat Fanciers Club is Just a new club and any new members would be more than welcome. Running a cat show also takes a lot of work and a lot of time. And new members of the Northern Valley club could also help. "WE MADE SOME mistakes in running the show," said an apologetic Mrs. Withstandley, "but this was our first show and we hope to correct our mistakes next year. "Our biggest mistake was with the household pet contest, but this was not entirely our own fault. There was a long delay in the judging of this contest because of difficulty with the judge. This will not happen again." There were 48 household pets entered in the show and there were some disgruntled comments because of the long delay. It seemed especially long, for some of the county residents were not used to the long hours that must be spent at the show. . . Cat fanciers are a funny breed of people themselves. A cat show enthusiast plans on spending between 10 and 15 hours at a show for one day, whether or not he wins or loses. According to show rules, he cannot take his cat from the hall until the end of the show. HOWEVER, THESE breeders do not seem to mind the long hours and they are probably the friendliest people a person can meet, especially when he would like some information on the breeder's cat. "The show cats are treated as children," said Mrs. Withstandley, who is an avid breeder her self. "And the breeders are more than happy to talk to someone, since there really Isn't very much to do at the show while they are waiting for their cat to be judged." This was the type of day it was at New City long for some, but an interesting attraction for those who had never seen a cat show.

Poughkeepsie Tourney Second Half Surge Boosts Davies, 72-68 A second-half surge pulled the I The Cornhuskers will have the Davies Cornhuskers out of the fire last night and gave them a 72-68 victory over Arlington Sport Shop of Poughkeepsie in the quarterfinal round of the Poughkeepsie YMCA Tournament. Davies trailed by 14 points with 12 minutes left In the game. The Cornhuskers' poor shooting and torpid defense had helped Arlington take a 19-12 lead In the first quarter and a 37-25 at the half. BUT A FULL-COURT press, along with accurate Jumpshoot-ing by Dugan Kovalsky and Jim Vellane, put Davies into the lead with less than a minute left That was how it stayed. Kovalsky ended up with 26 points, Vellane with 22, most of them in the second naif. Art Orando scored 15. Don Jackson and Pat Jarrett, who contributed only two points between them, nonetheless gave valuable backboard help. Bud Molinaro was high for Arlington with 23 points; Jim Pulver had 19, Tom O'Brien 12 and Bill Quellet 10. SEMIFINALS will be held at the IBM Country Club, Poughkeepsie, at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday.

So it followed that if we could collect these key whiskies from the world's Createst Scotches and combine them, we'd end up with a Super Scotch. Elementary, really. But easy, no.
