CANADAY of Old River, who won the $25 award as the] hairiest Whlskerlno In last year's Frontier Days, has promised not to take unfair advantage of other contestants this year Big Whisker Fred Nlghbert said today. Mr. Canaday lajst week had a good growth but shaved It off following a stern admonition from the Big Whisker and will "start from scratch" on September 1. He denied, however, reports that he shaved because of "start- Ing to scratch." "Of course," he admitted today, "after the first few days whiskers begin to feel as if there were something crawling In them." Mr. Canaday agrees that his exploit of last year as well as his profession as a nurseryman, gives him right to speak as an undisputed authority on the art of cultivating facial foliage, but says he has no particular pointers to give. His whiskers, like Topsy, "Just growed." In only one way did ho have an advantage over his competitors. "I used to go out and watch the monkeys at the nursery here and study their methods," he said. Whether or not aping the monkeys was any help, In six weeks he resembled one of Admiral Byrd's men alter two years In the antarctic. As a matter of record for prospective Whlskerlnos wondering what will please tho Judges, his beard was 2Vi Inches long by measure and uncur- rled in style. He only shaved his lips, and even then he had to use a mirror while eating. IWOULED The first four weeks are the hard' cat, he said. A beard doesn't grow very fast after that, and If Chihuahuas haven't anything to show by that time, they might as well resign themselves. Mr. Canaday • takes a natural, manly pride In his luxuriant growth. "It's a lot of fun to comb whiskers," he said, "and they're Just like a third pocket, some place to put your hands when you aren't work- Ing. Besides, they keep you warm on cool October nights." But getting them off Is another matter. Mr. Canaday said ho did It himself with a pair of clippers and a. good straight edge. "I knew the $25 1 won wasn't enough to pay a barber," ho said.
