BY JOE DEGEORGE Chanute, Kas. <AP).— Dixie saw a movie for ihe first time the other night—and got the'scare of her life. Dixie, a bird dog owned by Bill Brennan, was lyin? in the dining room wjiile the family was showing moving pictures tdiken in Australia and New Guinea by Mrs. Brennan'.s brother, S-Sgt. T. F. Varner. The dog came to attention and sniffed the air when a group of small birds appeared. Tlien a bi.; ostrich was flashed on tiie scrc-eii. walking toward the camera. As it got larger, Dixie growled loudly and the hair on her neck rose shaiply. The bird plodded clo.ser. and the dog decided to find a hiding place, finally ducking behind a stove. She refused to leave her place of refuge, Brennan reports, until the film changed to landscapes. Vicky, in the McPherson Republican, tells the story of a local citizen who hinted hopefully to his fellow workers for some Christmas cigars. He was tremendously plca.scd when his colleagues marched into his office, each carrying a small package just about tlie rierht size to contain iix cigars. In eager anticipation, he opened the first package—and found a box of kitchen matchos. Contents of tlie rest were the same. The man's pals explained thr.- understood irom his remarks that he expected a laree supply of rigavs, and they wished liim to be wel! supplied with matches.
