"Some Kid's Dog" Attacks District Attorney Cottom Canine Repeatedly Lunges At H, Vance Co.ttom AVfto Beats. mm Oft Until Animal's Owner Puts In. Timely Appearance District Attorney H. Vance Cottom may be a tough hombre when It comes j to official duties and criminals. Buti with kids, well, now, that's a different : story and the soft-hearted Btreak is always sure, to come to the surface. For instance: Traveling around the Masontown-Martln-McCIellandtown section the other night In search of a man wanted for a serious crime, the county prosecutor was attacked on a small bridge by a ferocious dag. The canine lunged with bared teeth and only the fast footwork of the intended victim saved the latter from the loss of valuable flesh on the limbs. Enraged, the dog again lunged and again the district attorney sidestepped uie attacic, but tnis time to deal a par tially stunning blow wih his fist which rnomenarlly halted the animal. In spinning around, an automatic revolver, too small for its holster, fell to the ground. Cottom grabbed the weapon cocked It and, then, withheld fire when it occurred to him the dog might belong to some youngster who would mourn its passing. "Kids love dogs and dogs love kids," said Cottom. "I didn't intend to lose any part of my carcass In the fray but I didn't want to kill the animal, either." bo, lor a few more minutes, the lunging of the canine and the dodging , of the district attorney continued until reinforcements, In the shape of the qogs owner, appeared on the scene and literally dragged the four-footed ani mal with the hungry look into the house to permit the district attorney to continue his investigation. But there would have been a dead dog if that soft-hearted streak for kids hadn't stayed the finger on ths trigger. Griffith Named Sergeanf-ot-Arms Announcement Is made that Paul H.
