Then the Whites smelted smoke. They realized the house was afire. When they began to stir, Rover darted into the children's bedroom, barking all the while to wake them up. He tugged at their bedclothes, too. Once in the street, they heard Rover still barking inside. But there was a note of terror in his bark. A beam had fallen across the doorway, trapping him. Soon, Rover stopped barking. Later, they found his body inside, the ruined house. REPORTS OWN DEATH ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (UP) "I want to report a suicide," police were told by a caller.

The tots came to help grandpa celebrate his 69th birthday, and they did so by taking a ride In the miniature model. Jay Penn has been building the engines as a hobby for 11-12 years. (Pharos-Tribune Photo-Engraving.) DELPHI—Chugging around the streets here last Thursday were two tots on a miniature steam en- Sine their grandfather built. The choo-choo trip was appropriately taken in conjunction with the engine maker's S9th birthday, which his two grandchildren came to celebrate. Jay .Penn, machinist in Delphi for 42 year.s, .started his hobby about 11-12 years ago, before his grandchildren, Trena Lou, 6, and Bill, 4, were bora. His inlerest in steam engines was a hangover from the 1920's when he used to pilot them while threshing wheat in Kansas. His son, Joe, father of the two tots, said the elder Penn's heart nearly broke when steam engines were shoved aside by the younger tractors. His miniature models were made to resemble as'acutely as possible the older engines. With the exception of a very few parts his babies are strictly homemade. It took him 18 months, working in his spare time and overtime to build the engine his grandchildren rode in. He bought the boiler and renovated it. He took a 35 gallon water tank and attached it, and also two smaller tanks that hold a combined nine gallons. The parts he made included two drive wheels, safety valve, crankshaft, throttle, piston and piston rings and two cylinders. Other parts he picked up hither and yon and rebuilt. Among these were ar. old automobile horn for a whistle; two fror.t wheels from an elevator, an oil pump from a regular sized steam engine, and he UJCJL .Ti/.tu airt^aiji uLuj'int, eu'u iiu < _ II yi 1 • f • 111 got the little red steering wheeliKead the Classified Ads "from somewhere." After the engine was finally assembled, he cold-water tested it at a pressure of 560 pounds. Ail-told the model weighs about 2,025 pounds. It's about one-third the size of a regular engine. It's horsepower is 4V4. A normal-sized one is about 20 horses. The other two steamers he built were smaller than it. One weighed about 80 pounds, the other less. As small as they were, both would run. Perui's grandkids got quite a kick out of riding the little choo-choo, but neighbors won't be surprised if they see an adult behind the wheel next tune. Penn built It but he also enjoys riding it. MonficelJo Mr. and Mrs. Aubrey 1 Schoonover of Chalmers R. B.., announce the engagement of their daughter, Laurice L., to Kenneth E.
