Then the employee walk-' • — ed across the street and came into our neighbor's yard, where their dog and our dog were playing. He picked them up, after making friends with them, and took them away. I noticed Chat our dog was missing around three thirty but thought some school children must have carried him home. Around five o'clock, a neighibor informed us (hat foe Humane Society had taken both puppies away. They were in their own yards and both puppies •were under six months old. • As soon as we were informed what had happened, our neighbor, whose dog was taken away, called your Humane Society. He had offered to pay extra if he could come out immediately and claim both dogs. He was told that the pound was closed at Jive o'clock and he could not possibly claim them that night. He was told that the pound would be opened the next morning at eight o'clock and that there would be a boarding fee. Mjf little boy wanted to know if his dog had a •good place to sleep and 1 told him that his puppy would have good care. The next m-arning, our neighbor went to the Humane Society to claim the dogs only to find that they were not there. They had Charge More Interest Small loan companies charge more interest than banks because they have higher operating costs and take greater risks. They deal mostly with skilled or semi-skilled workers while banks lend mostly to the white collar worker; Why do some people who can get a bank loan borrow from a small loan company instead? Here are some reasons; — Small loan offices are open at more convenient hours and may be closer to home. —Small loan offices are more willing to lend small amounts. —Their employes "speak the same language" and make the puuuc reiauons. iney repossess only in rare cases these days The danger of repossession is a a minimum because of such cush ions as credit life, health and accident Insurance, unemployment insurance and pensions. A $500 20-month loan can cost you from $104 to $161 in interest depending on the state law the small loan company works under. The bank's charge would put the same loan cost about $71. On a S300 loan, payable over 18 months, the bank cost comes to about $3{ while the small loan company would charge at least $68.

I had always thought, when the Humane Society picked up dogs, that they were kept for at least a day or two. I thought they gave the owners' a chance to claim them. When I was told that the Humane Society had picked up our puppy, I thought he was safe for the night. I knew he hadn't been stolen or carried home by some child, wish now that he had been. I know now that there is no law or rule that says you have to keep thorn any length of time. To me, it only seems human to keep them at least twenty four hours or longer, if possible. W« tried to claim our dogs within five hours and received no satisfaction. You also informed us that you pick up dogs only where a complaint has been made. In that case, we should have been warned at least one time so we could have tied up our dogs even tho they were in their own yards. I don't think you could have possibly picked up so many dogs on com,plaint, that they had to be destroyed within a few hours on that day. Please don't tell us to put our' selves in your position. K we were in your position, .we would keep all dogs -for at least twenty four hours or longer. We would give the dogs and owners a chance. Our dog was only a puppy -and he didn't have a tag. Does that mean he should have been put to sleep so soon? Both puppies stayed •within a few feet of our homes and •we didn't need a tag to tell us to whom they belonged. Even if he had been straying away from home, which he wasn't, when he was picked up, was it human to put him to sleep without a chance? Mrs. C.

Women Play Big Role in Toy Designs NEW YORK (UP) — Playthings for small fry represent a realistic payoff for many women. It turns out that the world of toys increasingly is woman's world. Women have had a hand in the design, manufacture, or the sale of a goodly chunk of the Vk billion dollars worth of toys which will be sold this year. The toy manufacturers of the U.S.A. said the figure will set^a record. Jt listed several dozen women in top jobs in the field—as designers, president or other executive in some of the largest companies. These included Mme. B. Alexander, .boss of a New York'firm which specializes in dolls fit for a "10 best dressed" list; Mrs. Ha- z.elle H. Rollins, partner with her husband in a Kansas City company making marionettes; Mrs. Jennie Graves, president of a Medford, Mass., firm specializing in dolls and costumes; Mrs. W.W. 'Rushton, president of an Atlanta company which turns out 10,000 stuffed animals a day; and Mary Bauer, vice president and designer for Ideal Toy, world's largest doll manufacturer. "But it is in the field of invention where the ladies are beginning to shine," said Alice Nichols. Miss Nichols and her partner, Felicia Parker, started out three years ago selling a new word game called "Bali" and have expanded into a new rale—acting as agents for toy and game inventors generally. "About a third of the ideas which come in here are from women," said Miss Nichols. "One of. the things most toy inventors —man or woman—have in common is parenthood. A mother trying to think of a new way to keep junior from underfoot produces a new idea in toys." Doubts Threat- of Strike to Snarl Satellite launching WASHINGTON ttJPO—A federal mediator said today there is no immediate danger of a threatened strike at the. Cape Canaveral, Fla., missile center will prevent the government from launching a test satellite next month. The mediator who preferred to remain anonymous, told a reporter the Railway Labor Act forbids a strike while the National Mediation Board is handling a labor dispute. He said the board intends to retain jurisdiction in hopes of settling the controversy between Pan American Airways and the Brotherhood of Railway Clerks. Logansport, Indiana.
