Behave, Mother Says SIOUX CITY, Iowa, Mar. 2.--"All parents should spank daughters when they don't behave." So declared Mrs. Rita Rac of Sioux City, president of the Wives of Spanking Husbands Club, in announcing formation of a junior auxiliary, "Daughters of Sppnking Parents." Girls between 11 and 17 years of age are eligible to join, according'to Mrs. Rae. "Some givls won't admit it, but they Know really that it is better to get spanked, than to get scolded and nagged," Mrs. Rae said. "Spanking creates a belter understanding between daughters' and parents." The Wives of Spanking Husbands Club is a nationally recognized or- g?nization boasting 59 chapters. Us slogan is: "Spare the hairbrush and spoil the wife." "Our husbands don't beat us," Mr: Rae explained. "They just turn ui pver their knees and give us a good sound spanking once in a while. "Spanking makes home iife happy, and It saves lots of homes from divorce courts. It also makes woman feel as though her husbanc really cares for her and creates, .a much better understanding between man and wife." MILL.

PITTSBURGH, Mnr. 2.--"Teddy" Isn't his real name, but that's what they call him: at the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society headquarters in Blgclow boulevard, and" he's as good a hound' dog as ever treed a coon. And the man who was his master until the Humane Society, stepped in, Royal Heasley, of Manor, a 31-year- old handle factory worker, is scheduled to appear before a justice of the peace tonight to face cruelty charges. "I couldn't give him away, I couldn't sell him, I don't have the heart to shoot him or have him shot, and 1 still wanted to get rid of him," Royal Heasley explained to a society agent. So he took Teddy into the Westmoreland county woods about a mile from his home, according to the agent's story, and there he twice chained the dog to a tree in attempts to starve him to death. Teddy spent a total of two days and three nights without shelter, held prisoner by a heavy chain and pelted by sleet and cold rains. It was a Boy Scout of Westmoreland City, adjacent to" Manor, who eventually saved Teddy's life and who was indirectly responsible for nn information being filed against Heasley. The dog, a sturdy "red bone" foxhound, was first taken to the secluded woodland on February 17. The next day a Westmoreland City resident happened to be wandering through the hills and noticed. the chained animal. Unable to loosen the bonds, the man rctunrcd home and told about what he had seen to a neighbor. The next day, the two men, with the nciyhbor's son, a IS-rycar-old Boy Scout, returned to the spot and set Teddy free. Apparently the dog went back to Heasley, and the latter, the agent says, was seen walking toward the woods again with Teddy that afternoon. Somehow this story was heard by the Scout, whose identity was not revealed. That night the boy was unable to sleep. He worried about the dog so much that at 3 o'clock in the morning he went into his mother's room to ask 1£ it wasn't almost time to get up. When dawn came, the boy began his search. But Teddy had been chained in another place, and the hunt was unsuccessful. Setting out for the woods in the afternoon, with his father, the boy finally came upon the half-frozen hound, almost hidden from view in a deep gully. Teddy was taken back to Westmoreland. City, fed and given a good kennel with plenty o£ straw. There he stayed until an agent brought him to Pittsburgh. During the middle ot lost week the Scout told the whole story to Justice of the Peace V. J. Holdcn of Manor, before whom Heasley must appear. Holden relayed the story to the Hu- .manc .Society. . - , . Heasley signed over to the humane organization complete authority, to dispose of Teddy as it sees fit; nnd Chief Agent Edwin M. Smith announced that the brown, black and white hound--male, incidentally-will be given to anyone who will promise to give It a good home. When a girl wears a daring costume it's daring some one to Meaner.
