The bis "hog" had jumped the track just outside his office. ¥ * ¥ More painful and almost tragic was the experience of an lowan Walter Bell of Harlan. Mr. Shannon gave the facts of his case thus: On a warm summer day Mi- Bell plugged a six-volt fan into a 110-volt socket. The fan couldn't take it and leaped toward Mr. Bell like an airplane taking off. He raised his arm to stop it. The gash in his arm required 35 stitches.

The judge sentenced the youths to learn 250 lines of Julius Caesar in Latin by June U and to write 1,000 word essays on "How silly H is to (urn in a false alarm.' 1 Small Carryover on Canned Goods Allowed NEW YORK, (/P)-- Housewives who register for war ration book No. 2 next month won't have coup o n s deducted for moderate amounts of canned or frozen foods they may have on hand.

Dairies in Nampa, Idaho, End Deliveries NAMPA, Idaho, (/?)--Nampa's five dairies discontinued delivery service Thursday because of an OPA order pegging the price of milk at 12 cents a quart, John Kagsdale, largest dairyman and spokesman, said.

WELL, NO--But Mrs. Charles McClelland of New York places comfort first, dresses for bed in flannel nightcap, long woolen underwear and wool - socks. By DOROTHY ROE AP Fashion Editor you frightened by t thermostat'.' Hysterical over the fuel shortage? Tormented by visions of chilblains? Are you confused by the current flood of literature advising you to install storm windows and sleep in a hermetically sealed bedroom, to conserve heal? Worried over suffocating with no fresh air? Then just relax, and emulate grandpa and grandma, who managed to keep warm in bed in the clays before central heating, when the water froze in the pitcher every night. When the weather was 40 below and they had to scrape frost oft the bedposts, the old folks dressed accordingly. II you are one of those deluded Americans who think you must cling to chiffon nighties and airy pajamas to be fashionable, vou'll be relieved to know that some of our best families are going for long woolen underwear, flannel nightgowns and even nightcaps these fuel-rationed nights. As a public service to shivering citizens I have made a survey of the nightwcar situation and can report that you won't be ostra- sizccl if you lay in a supply o[ the following items: 1--Lone woolen underwear. (Red preferred.) 2--Woolen bed socks. 3--Flannel pajamas or night- ffowns. 4--Flannel robes. 3--Nightcaps. (Old toboggan caps will do.) 6--Mufflers. ~--Plenty of blankets. 8--Ear muffs wtih fluffy wool lining. (Don't laugh--even Klam- or girls are wearing them.) If challenged on these precautions, you may quote no less an authority than Dr. C. E. A. Winslow, professor of Public Health at Yale university, who advocates heavy woolen underwear for both men and women, and says that ski suits may even become fashionable for indoor wear. LOOK AT PAPA! Mr. McClcllanct adds a long woolen miil'l'ler and gloves to his bedtime outfit of stocking cap, robe, sweater, long socks and underwear. Papers Delivered.

Papa is quite comfortable, thank you, in the old football sweater, plus accessories. O'Briens Are Masters at Letter Writing RANDOLPH FIELD, Tex., (U.R)-- The F. J. O'Bi-icns ot Mcridcn, Conn., have a system to their letter writing. Sgt. Francis J.
