Meyer, said yesterday he hopes the Democratic gubernatorial candidate announces his intention to run by early March, 1962. Meyer, who has indicated he will be a candidate for Congress, probably against U.

S. Sen. George D. Aiken, said he doubts if any gubernatorial aspirant could wage a successful campaign against Gov. F.

Ray Keyser Jr. if he enters the race after early March. "Keyser will be a strong candidate," Meyer said, "a lot stronger than many people think." The Rupert forester declined to speculate on who might accept the Democratic nomination for governor and said he has urged Burlington Atty. Bernard J. Leddy to run but has no idea whether Leddy will accept a place on the ticket.

He also said he hopes the party adopts an anti right-to-work law plank in its 1962 platform, BIRD FEED Gift SUNFLOWER BIRD FEED For All Your (Feathered or otherwise) Give the gift that keeps on giving BIG-W WILD BIRD FEED Here's a Christmas gift suggestion that can solve many of those "What shall I give him (or her)" problems.

51 Prospect Street, BARRE Inside Fashion The Fur Blanket By EUGENIA SHEPPARD Women's Feature Editor Fifth Avenue is blanketed with fur coats this week, but the blanket isn't solid mink the way it used to be. Fighting it out for top honors at the smart luncheon spots are the two hardest-to-get, most expensive furs in the world Somali leopard and Russian sable. Girls who can't get either are wearing spotted cheetah or jaguar, or sabledark mink. Asked whether Mrs. John F.

Kennedy's recent choice of his leopard topcoat will influence other women to buy the same fur, furrier Ben Kahn simply said, "I shudder to think." Leo Ritter said, "'They'll all want to wear leopard, but it won't make any difference. You can't get the skins." Somali leopard comes from Somaliland in east central Africa, near Ethiopia. Scarcity of skins is not because of international upheavals, but because of government protection, just as our government protects its seals from extinction. Only a limited number of leopards are available each year. Leopard's popularity has nothing to do with warmth and everything to do with its dramatic color and pattern, and the fatal, predatory reputation of the beast.

Ranch mink is tame stuff compared with jungle leopard. "Leopard isn't really warm," admitted designer-manufacturer Mollie Parnis who, with her usual uncanny prescience for spotting trends, wore her new leopard coat (Maximilian) for the first time last week. "It's so cold, in fact, that I had mine lined with vicuna." She ordered a vicuna dress to match the lining, launching a new luxury fad. Many furriers now carry, waiting lists of women who want fine Somali leopard coats. Maximilian is just filling Mrs, Leol order, placed a year ago.

Design of the coat is top secret but described as "a sports coat and very narrow." Leo Ritter's workrooms are finishing leopard topcoats for Honey Berlin and Mrs. Ruby Schinasi, a collector who owns at least one of every fashionable fur. Leopard skins now cost roughl; around $700, and a leopard coat averages around $6,000. This to 11, though is as nothing compared to the cost of Crown Russian sable. Though the average price of an Hound Trapped 50 Days Wags Tail On Release From Mine By BURL OSBORNE GILBERT, W.Va.

(AP)-Brownie, a 3-year-old rabbit hound with a master cares, settled down today to replacing the 25 pounds he lost during 50 days entrapment in a caved-in mine shaft. A bulldozer late Monday uncovered a hole leading into the shaft into which the dog disappeared months ago. Brownie, with protruding ribs and eyes bleary in the daylight he hadn't seen for SO long, clambered into the arms of equally bleary -eyed Richard Hatfield, 21, his master. Until a week ago, Richard's struggle to free his trapped pet had been a lonely and seemingly hopeless one. But as word spread, Strafford School Recesses Friday After Program SOUTH STRAFFORD Newton School will present a Christmas program at Barrett Memorial Hall Friday at 1:30 p.m.

School will close Friday for two weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Arthur J. Rainville are back from their farm in the Millers Pond district of the town where they stayed during the fall.

Mrs. Grass Feted At Post-Nuptial Shower Mrs. Douglas Grass, formerly Trudy a Johnson of South a Barre, was feted at the Thompson Memorial Building in Barre last Saturday night when relatives and friends gathered to give her a post-nuptial shower.

The program consisted of a song composed by Lee Peters and sung by Martha and Carol MacCandless; a reading by Mrs. Pearl Reidy and a vocal solo by Mrs. Sylvia Miller. A wedding cake, made by Mrs. Euna Persons, was served with other refreshments.

The decorations were in blue and white. Hostesses were Mrs. Anita Peters, Mrs. Euna Persons, Mrs. Shirlee Persons, Carol Bresette and Carol MacCandless.

David Faulkner is home for the holiday recess from Norwich University; David Corey from Plymouth Teachers College, Plymouth, N. H. Mrs. Robert Pelkey and children of Thompsonville, came Saturday to vacation with her parents, Mr. and Mrs.

Ralph Lamell, and brother, Bruce. itsy bitsy sable skin is said by furriers to be around $250, a couple of the industry's best known, Maximilian and Ritter, made international headlines a year ago by bidding each other up to $900 a skin, and don't forget, girls, that a sable is only about as big as a rat. Sable coats can cost up to $100,000 but it's a sure thing that anybody wrapped in one has been able to lay $8,000 to $10,000 on the line without feeling any pain. The way to wear a sable is in the daytime and as if it were absolutely nothing, 1 tossed on over a little wool dress. That's the way Rosita Winston was wearing hers, one of the world's rarest, at the Cote Basque the other noon, She has a little cap to match.

One who has just joined the ranks of the daytime sable wearers is Mrs. Byron (Virginia) Foy, whose topcoat from Reiss and Fabrizio is worked two ways, the yoke horizontal and the rest of the skins up and down, Most of the sable coats are on the horizontal. Of course, if you can't get leopard you can settle for jaguar or cheetah. There are dozens of handsome spotted coats on Fifth Avenue that didn't come from Somaliland. If you can't get sable, you can settle for dark, dark mink with one of those catchy tradenames like "Black Diamond" or "Creole." Furriers are even working dark mink with the hairs up to give it some of that deliciously soft, sinful, sable look.

Of course, if you already own some of these furs, you can settle for a furlined coat, lots of women. Mrs. Henry Ford- II and Mrs. John (Noreen) Drexel have just ordered mink lined fabric coats from Reiss and Fabrizio, Of course, you can go right on wearing your old cloth coat, too, but, take it from us, you'll feel mighty lonely, unfurred, on Fifth Avenue these days. Blanket it back his neighbors made it a community project.

Richard had tried lassoing Brownie, had through tried a luring narrow him crev- into a sack; but nothing worked. For 18 days after Brownie disappeared while on a hunting trip with Richard he was thought dead. But whatever the dog chased into that narrow slitprobably a rabbit- seemed to have provided with enough food to keep him going for a while. Brownie's whimpering and barking was heard 1 by one of Richard's numerous cousins in the small community of Hampden. Tommy Kennedy told Richard he had heard Brownie bark.

That was 32 days ago. When Charles Dillon, one of Richard's neighbors, crawled into a narrow break in the stony mountainside, Brownie was at first immobile and seemingly blind. After he adjusted to the fading daylight outside, he trotted out to his master. Richard had visited the break every day since the dog had been located, dropping food down the slit to his pet. Water was plentiful inside the shaft.

Even so, Brownie's ribs were in plain view when he came out. His weight dropped from 45 to 20 pounds. But his tail wagged.
