"Shaggy" Can Really Shag By HAROLD 0. TAYLOR Pittoburg Headlight and Sun Written for The Associated Press PnTSBURG (AP)-Remember the story about the ugly Duckling? Well, it has happened in the equine world. Ray Rodebaugh, a Pittsburg grocer, raises and shows ponies as a hobby. A little over three years ago he was in Missouri and saw a yearling stallion pony. With the long winter hair of a weaning colt, the mineature horse looked more like an old English sheep dog than a pony. But Rodebaugh knows his pennies as well as he knows his groceries. He bought the little animal and named it appropriately enough, "Shaggy." As a yearling, it won a blue ribbon in a model class, standing stretched out, ears up alert and as motionless as the Mona Lisa. Encouraged by this, Rodebaugh began schooling the animal to a cart. Old 1962 was such a good year for Rodebaugh and the pony he hated to see it end. The colt has annexed three grand championships, three model championships and 21 first place ribbons in roadster classes at pony shows in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. With the colt hair gone and the conformation of a three-year-old showing up, the dapple sorrel is as pretty as he is snappy in turning it on in roadster classes. Obviously, a prize winning animal couldn't go on through life known as "Shaggy" so today he is identified as "Prince Shaggy." While her husband is taking the lion's share of blue ribbons at pony shows, Mrs. Rodebaugh shows a pony, too. Ironically, as regularly as "Prince Shaggy" takes first plaqe, Mrs. Rodebaugh's pony gathers third place ribbons.

Shouldn't Show Ill-Shaped Legs On The Golf Course By WILL GRIMSLEY Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Say, men, do you have knobby knees? Are you bow-legged? Do your underpinnings look like pipe stems? If so, stick to slacks. Don't wear Bermuda shorts on the golf course. This is the admonition of Oleg Cassini, the well-known New York designer. Cassini, suave, Parisian-born clothes authority who used to drape cinema lovelies in Hollywood, was asked by Golf Digest Magazine to look into the wild attire worn on the nation's golf courses. He did—and was aghast. Of the men, Cassini said: "I do believe that men who are conservative in their business and home environments are often riotiously abloom in their sports clothes. They will mix incredible colors and patterns and never know what eyesores they present." Of the gals, he said: "Women, too, will uncanningly combine stripes and plaids, polka dots and prints on the golf course." The designer said his key to good dress on the golf course is "functional." "You must be able to feel comfortable, look neatly groomed and still have the freedom of movement without restriction so essential in this sport." Speaking of Bermuda shorts for men, Cassini said: "My feeling is that if they have well-shaped legs and if they wear the entire ensemble they can make a fine appearance. But if, horror of horrors, they affect Bermuda shorts with ill-shaped underpinnings and with those short ankle socks, they invariably give the appearance of having just left the planet Mars." "Call From Lord" Brings Flock Of People To lola IOLA, Kan., (AP) - A quiet invasion of this town of 7,300 in Southeast Kansas has been started by members of a religious sect who say it's "The will of the Lord." Asked why they were giving up jobs and homes elsewhere, their replies are vague. "The Lord has spoken," said Jim Hoss, father of four, who is quitting a draftsman's job in Hutchinson, Kan., "that's where the Lord wants me, to train me for what he wants me to do. I'm not particularly interested in a job." About 30 members of the Bethel Baptist Church in Hutchinson are moving to lola. A truck backed up to the Madison Avenue Church in lola Thursday night and household goods of Holdup Man Is Way Out HUTCHINSON, Kan. stickup man with a heavy stubble of beard and a bright orange cap got $690 at a Hutchinson supermarket late Wednesday. Wilbour Enoch, operator of the market, estimated the loss. Hutchinson families were unloaded. Other families from Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois are expected. About 75 persons, mostly children from babes-in-arm to high school age, gathered in the church. After the meeting, newsmen questioned members of the group on the reason for the migration. "We don't want publicity," one man said. Others said, "I'm not qualified to answer." "We are committed to the Lord." "The Lord wants it to be known he'll direct us." The church pastor, known as Brother Don Kindhart disappeared through a rear door when the reporters entered. Then the families dispersed, with the newcomers going home with members of the local congregation. Among the visitors' cars was one from Missouri bearing a large sign with these messages: "He paid your debt. Only believe," and "Eternity is hell for unbelievers." Hie Madison Avenue Church congregation split away from the First Baptist Church of lola some time ago and took over a building FRANKLIN COUNTY SALE CO., INC. 1 Mile North on Highway 59 Miscellaneous Sale Starts 10:00 a.m. Hogs Start Selling Promptly 12:00 Noon We will sell a complete Holstein daily herd for Donald Godfrey of Richmond, starting at 2 p.m. Special Stoeker -- Feeder and Calf Salt Starting at 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 21 CALL US ABOUT YOUR CONSIGNMENTS, OR BRING THEM IN JOHN OGLE, OVERBROOK — MO 5-2225 ELVIN DILLON, BALDWIN — 504-3223 FRED COON, PAOLA — AX 4-3547 brmerly used by the Salvation Army.

This was the favorite way to prevent lockjaw some years ago. Naturally, we wouldn't think of doing this now. But then, we're lucky. We have tetanus toxoids and antitoxins. Thanks to medical science, lockjaw need no longer be a killer . . . previously, death occurred in 90% of the cases. Children, because of their affinity for cuts, sometimes pick up the tetanus germ. So, if there are young children in your family, be sure to ask your physician about preventive tetanus shots. It's always wise to seek your doctor's advice before using any medicines.
