(UP)—Chasing dogs and cats can get to at; pretty humdrum, but Humane Officer Wilfred Goss would rather j stick to dons and cats and the 1 humdrum than to -spend another I "txcitins" day. Goss was called to help get a »monkey off a tree. H3 spent most of one day doing that without suc- CPS:;, Uain finally drove the mon- key down and into his cage. But the cage was nanny closed when Goss had to BO to evict two skunks that were caught in a trap under a building. If you want to get the jab done, work like Helen B. Careful. on costly corn. But this will not necessarily mean greater retail supplies, the department said, since the leaner animals will produce smaller 4 chops, hams and roasts.
