Junior Editor Quit en- JACKALOPES THE PRONGHORN ANTELOPE = THE ANTELOPE ^m JACK BABBIT ^ QUESTION: Is the Jackalope an antelope or a Jack rabbit? ANSWER: If you will roam around the Western plains (black area in map) you may come across, in a house o restaurant, the mounted head of a very odd lookin, animal. The neck, face and long ears are obviouly thos of the skinny-looking western jack rabbit, the animal wit! long legs who skims along so fast and can jump up to 2( feet. But above the rabbit's head rises the queerly shaped horns of the prong horned antelope, another very fas running western animal. Ask your host what this strange animal is and he'll say: "Oh, that's a jackalope, it's cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope." Do you believe him? If you do he'll put you down as an Eastern tenderfoot, for the jackalope is an animal which doesn't exist and never did. The idea originated because the two animals, with patches of white against brownish colors resemble each other, especially at a distance, as they leap lightly across the Western landscape. There have been many other mythical combinations of animals, like the unicorn, a horse with a long ivory horn carried by the arctic narwhal.
