Wednesday, a slab of fresh concrete was poured and smoothed. Late in the day, President Johnson walked outside to take a look at the work. A photographer suggested raffishly, "why don't you get the beagle and have him put his paw prints in tlra concrete like they do in Hollywood?" Happy to oWige, the President had the dogs brought out. First he took the beagle, "Him," and firmly implanted both the dog's front feet in the concrete. The effort was not entirely successful. In the first place, Him has small paws but more importantly, the concrete had pretty well hardened. The President tried in several places, leaving a somewhat mottled effect in the nearby dry cement. Then he took "Blanco," the Dhite House collie, and tried again. Blanco made a somewhat more visible impression. The President seemd happier. However, Johnson was much more impressed by the polished camera posture of the beagle. "If that's not a performance," the President exclaimed as Him looked brightly at the concrete. "He deserves a medal." 4-H Steers to Go On Auction Block Friday There might be a few tears shed, but that's the way it is. At 7 p. m.
