TOLA, KANSAS THE lOLA REGISTER. SATURDAY EVENING, DECEMB^ 23, 193?. This and That In Kansas Bf JOE DEGEORGE . Leavenworth, Kas., Dec. 15. (AP)— The person who entered the Manning residence must have had a tre- mendo-us appetite. . Returning home late in ^the day- Mrs. Manning's attention was attracted to a skillet on the stove and a dozen-eggshells in the coal hod. •Tlie egg carton, full when she lelt home, was empty, j--^ But,that wasn't all. Also* missing were a pound of hamburger and a •dozen doughnuts. While on the subject of food, listen to what happened, out; Larued way. Harley Carraway, a railrpad conductor, Walked into a restaurant, kicked the snow fi-om his stioes, unbuttoned his overcoat anci rubbed -his chilled hands. ••. -What'li it \n-r' the waitress. A twinkle in liis (;ycs, the con- dui'tor ivplltd, •• Watermelon." Without a wurd.tlie waitress went to the kitchen and returned with a .slice of ice-cold watermelot). j Carraway ate it, but he says hs's \ Kolng to order Jrom tlie menu fro.m i now on. The boys at the Smoky Hill army ah- '.field feel (and we, mean just that) that their pet rabbit did them wrong. When .some of the office personnel of an orderly room began scratching visiorously, no one thought to place the blame on an innocent little cottontail the GI's had adopted. But the longer the bilnny remained in tlie room the gi'eafcer tlie boys' discomlort became. Finally one of the men discovered that heat from the stove was bringing out a o.uantity ;of fleas from Bre'r Rabbit. Tlie cottontail was evicted into the cold —and promptly. Armed with a .410 sliotgun and two rifles, James Fleshman and two .sons, J. C. Fleshman, .and Ed Fleshman, of Leavenworth, left on a hunting trip the other day, tlieir .goal set at 100 rabbits. ' In six hours, they.jepcrted to the Times, they bagged'l41 bunnies. 'A Hays merchant, the iNews reports, discovered in the middle of ^ the moi'ninr: that ho ]iad neglected • to put on a necktie before leaving home. "The tiling that made n^e madder , than thunder," he complained, "v .-as ' that I always use tlie end of that j tie tf) clean my glas .seK and I had to see. but darkly, the whfle mui-ning ' long." m< day'.s v/ork over, Eirl Walker of Wichita was surin-i.scd to find his Model A automobile missing from • iis parking place. He notified jjolico apd a traffic ( fficer recalled seeinir a' wrecker re- mov(i a car from the block in whicn Walker's locked machine had been parked. A call to the ganigc con- finned that it was Walker's. Explainc'd tlv; attendaiU: "1 wa,s told to pick up a Model A in the first block on South Main, and- when I didn't find one there I went to tlic ;ccond block and haulvd m one I found there."
