8 Golesburg Kegisfrer-MQiJ, Goiesburg, III. Wednesday, Oct. 16, 1963 Orval Loses Neighborhood Bout * By WICK TEMPLE LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP^ —You get a frantic phone call fit the office from your extra frantic wife, who says, "Well, they just got Orval." In addition to anger and concern, you are filled with curiosity. The methods "they" might use for getting Orval are important because you have never been able to get him yourself. "How did they get him?" I asked. "They shot him. He has three bullet holes in his side." You are enraged. You call the sheriff and get him on the way to extract three bullets from the side of a brown and tan, sway-backed, cross-eyed, lop-eared, bow-legged dog who should have happened to someone else. It turned out Orval hadn't been shot. The vet said he had' been in an argument with another dog. Seventeen stitches put him back together and ran his repair bill past $50. Two weeks earlier he had caught a Volkswagen. After stitching, he appeared to have been cut in half and put back together, and he still looks that way. Orval spent his first six months as a free agent in Gay Woods. Finally he made his way to the city and was about to be impounded when we gave him refuge. He made a fine pet. He was gentle and playful. But he never lost the wildness of his youth. A backyard fence (no small purchase) wouldn't hold him. He dug under until we had to reinforce the base of the fence with logs. Then he learned how to paw open the back screen door, dash through the house, throw a body block on the front screen door, and roll clear. Once he was out, he paid no attention to calls and he was impossible to catch. I consulted the vet. He decided Orval had emotional problems, brought on by lack of proper upbringing. He suggest- They'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hatlo SNORTINGTONS BEEM SAVING THOSE TRADING STAMPS, AMD AT-LAST HE'S ear ENOUGH FOR THAT PISHIM6 ROD«»< HoWE'ER MRS.S.

Then one day as we were ready to leave on a trip, Orval pulled his through-the-house and away trick. I was angry. I went after him. Rage gave me superhuman speed. The chase led three times around the house, across the road and through a patch of thick woods. Finally I made a flying dive and nailed him, and when he looked meekly up at me, I knew Orval was tamed. In those big brown eyes I saw respect, the trademark of civilization. And as I carried him home I felt a little triumph' ant, a guilty. little sad, and a little And If He'd Aimed WICHITA, Kan. (AP)-Daniel Ogle has a mean pitching arm. The 13-year-old boy was walking along a sidewalk tossing a baseball into the air. He gave it an extra high throw and the ball killed one of a flock of crows flying overhead.
