·nKldrtoF*, Press ^eNews-Tribune, Saturday, February *,«_,,, ^ Coon cons workers, Iff rappers MOBERLY.Mo. lUPD-For six week's, employes of the Mr.berly Monitor-Index newspa- t' per must have thought Harry * Houdini had been reincarnated as a raccoon. "It all started Christmas Eve." said Bob Cunningham general manager of the central Missouri newspaper, "When we came in that morning there was a real mess and we found raccoon (racks N . Since then he's been in the » building every night. We figure n e s reading the paper and that's w h y he's so darn smart." j* Cunningham buill a box iraf) {£ and baited it wiih sweet corn. w{ For three straight nights, the g coon entered the trap, worked K over the corn, lifted the door and K left, fat and happy. «f« Cunningham then called in a J» trapper recommended ty the jf» tuunty conservation ageni. The K trapper bailed two traps with S* corn. yj Same results - traps sprung. £« corn gone, coon gone ^! On one occasion, the raccoon J fell through a ceiling grate into '*« Ihe business office. It climbed a ·Jj plastic rubber plant, chewing M leaves in Ihe process. ft Then it headed for the £· pressroom, climbed atop the !£i press and fell through three tiers Vof (he "web." the moving sheet ·-'of paper on which the news is ;* printed. The pressmen were 1*1 furious. fi "We got to thinking about our ^computers." Cunningham said. ^"Suppose he decided to put out Xlhe paper by himself." jj? As a last resort, Cunningham ^called in Bob Smith, the ^foremost trapping expert of Ihe Vllissouri Department of Conscr- 6J;vation. Smith brought in a live £lrap and baited it with sweet jjcorn and bubble gum. j ! v "Double Bubble is the best," · Jjnilh said. "II has a fruity Jjflavnr that coons can smell a J.mile away." t* The results can at best be Jj'alled a draw. Smith found Ihe J^lrap sprung once, but speculated jjhal mice were the cause, lie ^experimented with apples and Jyandy without luck. ** There has been no sign of the jjaccoon al Ihe Monitor-Index for fjhree weeks now. Cunningham SNhinks Ihe varmint is gone for fgood. -' "He left on his own." ne said. "It. was Ihe first one Bob couldn't catch." -rp^-i-rrr--;!- t t i i i ...l.L.a I SUNDAY ONLY .\\ 11 BAKED HALF CHICKEN J59 Kmart Appliance "BONUS BUY" AM-PM RECEIVER WITH8-TRACK 4 SPEAKERS "QUADRAPHONIC" B*mic Bed* Osol ', Far Sunday, Ftfc. 29, 1976 ; ARIES (March 21-April 19) A situation you've been concern- 'ed aboul may soon be successlully terminated due to a sudden shift m conditions.
