Young releases from a hospital window a pigeon that carries news from the bedside of Young's wife to members of the family. Sapulpa, Okla. UP) Not all hom ing- pigeons go straight home Occasionally, says Glen O. Young, Sapulpa lawyer, a wayward one succumbs to the lure of. city life and stays out all night. His most recent difficulty was with one of a flock that had been flying messages from the bedside of his wife, ill in a Tulsa hospital, to the family home here, a distance of more than 18 miles. Instead of flying directly home the bird roosted overnight at the pigeon house of J. D. Wild in Tulsa, Wild sent the bird on its way with a note telling where it had been killing time. Young's three sons began raising the pigeons two years ago as a hobby. When Mrs. Young went to the hospital, Young took a basket of the birds along and released them with hourly bulletins on her condition. After learning their route, the pigeons " flew regularly from hospital to home roost in 20 minutes. Junior Policemen Help Curb Crime Pennsacola, Fla.

The department members hip comprises boys under 16 who passed examinations. The policemen were required to take the oath administered regular policemen and they wear uniforms. The 12 youths making highest marks in the examination were commissioned as members of the honor court and hear cases brought before them by the junior "cops."

Stamp Find Valuable New York A rare U. S. postage stamp error found by Herman Herst Jr., In the stock of a Port land, Ore., curio dealer was sold to George B. Sloane, stamp dealer acting for an unnamed client. The price was not disclosed, but Herst said it compared favorably with recent auction sales of similar stamps which have brought $3,300 and $3,600. The total cost of the stamp to Herst was $103. He bought it for $3, and after discovering it was a rarity, paid the Portland dealer $100 for a Dili of sale so as to establish clear title to it. The stamp is a very fine cancelled copy of the 30-cent value of the 1869 issue, with inverted flags, a printing error which distinguishes it from' the normal variety. Labor Shortage Boon Delhi Shortage of farm labor in Delhi County has proved a boon to students of the Delhi State School of Agriculture, H. L. Smith, director of the school, says. "The demand for workers exceeds the supply," Smith said, "Members of the senior class, recently graduated, have been uniformly successful in securing permanent employment." Meanwhile, from Robert Decker, national re-employment bureau manager in Delhi, came an explanation for the farm labor scarcity. "Preference for employment calling for shorter hours and higher wages is one of the reasons for the shortage," Decker explained. "We have enough married men available for jobs, but requests for a dozen single men thus far have gone unfulfilled." Edwards Twenty pigs were born last week to a sow owned by Robert Given of Edwards.
