Large Dog Attacks Woman and Girl rummage nte, April SID, on Belle street. A large boxer dog reported* ly attacked a woman and • girl at Main and Brown streets, Wednesday; 8 p.m., police re» porieo. Susan. Weber, of 3515 GOIham Ave., told officers the dog jumped at her and tore her stockings. The purse of Mrs Gara Acup, of 1406 George St. was damaged by the animal's attack, police stated. Blossom Missing, Leaves No Scent Blossom Marie is missing. She is a normal look but not an ordinary skunk. Blossom, as friends in show biz know her, was part of the Martha Reinhardt act which has appeared at club and church events frequently. Mrs. Reinhardt, of 1G25 Main St., is a stand up comedienne who worked Blossom into the act as a straight man, or is it straight lady. As long ago as last Saturday, Blossom worked the back of her cage off at the flelnhardt home and has not been seen since—unless she is appearing on a vaudeville circuit some place doing a single. Mrs. Reinhardt noticed Blossom's absence last Tuesday. Skunks sleep a lot in cool weather and daily attention is not only not needed but regarded with ill tem-| per by the skunk. So, the last time Blossom was seen in her cage was Saturday. She may have left any time since then. Blossom is four years old, full grown, has the well known broad white stripe, and anyone in the world can pick her up, including her natural! enemies. She would be easy prey for a dog because her natural equipment has been removed. To get this act together again call Mrs. Reinhardt if a strange skunk has,been hanging about. And do it with haste if the skunk is feeding straight lines and expecting the kicker from a partner. That would be Blossom.—E.C.B.
