MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Girl Finds Financial Aid in Pet Cockerel Spaniels Pay Her Way Through College. Most hubbies are expensive luxuries to those who indulge in them. But Miss Gertrude Shanks' hobby pays dividends. In fact it paid her way through college, for her hobby is cocker spaniels and for the last five years she has devoted her spare time to raising the silken haired, long eared little chaps and selling them, at her home in University Heights, Ohio, suburb of Cleveland. Last June Miss Shanks was graduated from Western Reserve law school, fourth in her class. She was elected to the Order of Coif, honorary law fraternity, and to Phi Beta Kappa. She will attend the University of Minnesota when the autumn term begins, continuing- her study of political science begun at Reserve. She won a scholarship for this advanced study, which not only paid her tuition ror a year, but also gave her $600. She has been selected, also as an alternate for a $1,300 scholarship to Yale university law school. Undecided About Future. *. Gertrude is undecided about her future, whether she will make law or political science her life work. She is working this summer In a law office, and likes it. She would like to be a regular lawyer, she states, pleading her own cases in court. I was first introduced to Lady Fawn, mother of six roly poly little fellows. Lady Fawn has been ill and her mistress says she is "just like a child who has been spoiled by a lot of attention." Lady Fawn Is fawn colored all over and is a prize winning dog. At present the Cranston kennels contain four female cockers and 12 youngsters of varying ages. When petted they socially chewed a finger or shoe strap. They like Gertrude's old shoes to chew on. "I do not care for trick clogs," she says. "I like dogs that are intelligent, like children, picking up their own tricks. No one taught Ijady Fawn to shake hands, and yet she does it very prettily. She also flushed a woodcock near here, recently. The name cocker spaniel conies from the fact that they arc English hunting dogs and ther favorite game is the woodcock. They Don't Point. They do not point like the usual hunting dog, but flush their game. They make for the woodcock's nest and flush the bird straight up so that the hunter can bag it. You remember in 'The Barretts of Wim- pole Street' Elizabeth's dog was named Flush from his habit of flushing--game." Cocker spaniels are quiet dogs. Miss Sanks tells me. They THREE Going to College EUEENE BOOMHOWER Brake Unlverslty NANCY BOWEN Grinnell College JEAJV SWFT University of Iowa do not bark, even at strangers, but they are very intelligent, affectionate, companionable and excellent watch dogs.
