PAW TWENfTT-TWTJ BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.T COtTRWR KBWS THTTKST5AY, TTOVTOfflCT 8,1§M Frustrated Poodle Showers Toy Pooch With Motherly Love By JULIUS GOLDEN ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A frustrated French poodle called Mandy is showering a toy with mother love. And the unresponsive toy—a rubber poodle about the size of a pup—has Mandy questioning her mistress with whines and deep, brown eyes asking for sympathy. Petite Mandy was to have been a mother last Saturday. Showing all signs of expectancy, Mandy ran through the house of her mistress, Mrs. Muriel Carpenter, building nests of clothes and rags. N'ot to Be Mama "When the weekend passed, we were worried," Mrs. Carpenter said. "Finally, yesterday, we took her to the veterinarian. He X- rayed her and said despite the symptoms, Mandy was not going to have pups." Dr. J. H. McCahon, the veterinarian, said the reason for Mandy's condition is not quite understood but it has to do with hormones. He said she'll either mother inanimate objects or perhaps, like others, nurse another sort of ani- mal — such as a cat or chicken until the phase passes. "Mandy, of course, doesn't know all this," said Mrs. Carpenter. "All she knows is that she's built nests and waited .for her pup. And now she has a pup. a strange one it's true, but it's hers. Always Near Her "She carries it in her mouth and whines. It always ha.s to be near her. Then she'll pick it up again, and look, at me with her deep, brown eyes and whine." Mrs. Carpenter says Mandy '.von't "go to bed without the little toy. Sometimes it's under her. sometimes alongside. She licks it and shows obvious displeasure if anyone else touches it." Mandy used to bring the pink, rubber toy to people to play tup of war, as doe;s are prone to do. But that is a forgotten past. "Now the toy has come to life." Mrs. Carpenter said, "and no one is soinc: to trg Mandy's puppy." PROGRESS STAMP - This new Italian stamp, marks 100 vears of professional education in Italy.

BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS To The Citizens Of Osceola: We, the undersigned, at your fellow citizens, would like to take thii opportunity of calling to your attention a few facts about Ben F. Butler and about the progress our town has made under his administration. First and foremost, Ben F. Butler is a business man and a successful business man—if he were not a successful business man, he would have no time to look after the office of mayor. Ben T. Butler has his house in order. Ben F. Butler was born and reared in Osceola. He likes Osceola and is proud of its progress. He believes Osceola is truly the city with a future, and has devoted his twenty years in office to bringing fulfillment of that future, and views with satisfaction our home town, from the viewpoint of a businessman, a civic and church worker, and from the viewpoint of the grandfather of seven, who are being reared in Osceola. Let us briefly review just a few of the forward steps along the road of progress our town has taken since Mayor Butler took office: 1. Paved streets. Approximately 75 per cent of the city streets now paved have been paved since Ben F. Butler took office. 2. Improved street lighting. This includes not only the new White Way on Hole Avenue and additional lighting of residential sections but also modernization of existing street lights. 3. Improved sewer system. 4. Improved Fire Department. 5. Extension of city limits. 6. Improvements to City Hall. 7. Opening of Florida Park and construction of Municipal Swimming Pool. 8. Bringing in of new industry. Ben F. Butler, as chairman of the Industrial Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, contributed his time and used his money to bring new industry to Osceola. 9. Opening of Osceola Memorial Hospital. 10. Construction of Mississippi County Library Build- Ing. Ben F. Butler, himself, does not claim credit for these accomplishments, but we feel that all citizens of Osceola recognize the fact that his executive ability and his knack for working with people to get things done for our community were of inestimable value in bringing these projects to fulfillment. Ben F. Butler is unceasing in his efforts to improve Osceola's economic and cultural status. He is currently engaged in an endeavor to locate a National Guard unit with an annual payroll of $50,000 in our city. It was through his personal efforts that buildings for the Boy Scouts and-Girl Scouts-iruFlorida Park were obtained. His efforts along this line are completely in character with his support of every movement to provide wholesome activity for the young people of our community. • Ben F. Butler has no apologies to make for the operation of the Osceola Municipal Light and Power Plant. The Light Plant Committee of the City Council has charge of the operation of the plant, and Mayor Butler feels, as we do, that the committee has done and is doing an excellent job. The records of the plant's operations are a matter of public record and are available to any citizen of Osceola. These records—and those of the city—are audited annually by Lenti and Smith, a most reputable auditing firm. Ben F. Butler is proud of his city. He is a paying member of the Osceola Chamber of Commerce. Beyond our corporate limits in other cities of Arkansas and our nation, he is known as Osceola's ambassador of good will. His influence in these outside areas is widespread. Ben F. Butler has used his personal time and funds to promote Osceola. He is a member of the Arkansas Industrialization Panel of 100 and is, even now, preparing to leave within a week on a trip to confer with officials of a major industry regarding a local site for that industry's home plant. Ben F. Butler is now—and always has been—in favor of the present policy of furnishing free lights and water to all the schools and all the churches within the corporate limits of the City of Osceola. Ben F. Butler is a member of the First Baptist Church of Osceola, but believes that you, as individuals, have a right to your own religious beliefs, and we can assure you that you will find that not only his Church, but every Church in our city has found him most co-operative in any undertaking of any religious organization. In his successful business, Ben f. Butler employs some 30 to 40 people, some of whom have been with the firm since 1932. We think this puts him in a position to appreciate the working man's views. We think you'll find, if you care to investigate, that some 30 to 40 people in his employ, feel the same way. Ben F. Butler is willing to leave his case—and any issues involved—in the hands of any business man, lervyer, doctor, banker, factory worker or the man or woman behind the counter in Osceola. If you feel that his superior record as a public servant, a civic leader, a successful business man, and a solid booster for Osceola merits your support, then it is your duty to go to the polls next Tuesday and give him your support.
