No Complaint on Yesterday While yesterday was Friday the thirteenth it held no terrors for a group of men on Seminary Road who bagged three foxes in a drive with five foxhounds. Had .they been timid and afflicted with that awesome-sounding disease that begins with 'triad' they would have suspected that said foxes would have turned on the would-be captors with dire results. Instead, they have rid the neighborhood of »t least one fox that Is known to' have become so bold as to have ventured into the Hersal Lyerla yard with his mate as late as Wednesday. It was killed near the house. Those joining In the fun yesterday were Melvin Maxeiner, Oscar Maxeiner, Harold Cathorall, Hersal Lyerla, Paul Nirsch, Gus Circher and Everett Lyerla. The lunt was on for only a few hours >ut it lasted long enough to bring he total number of foxes bagged ince Tuesday to six. One fox was dlled on each of three preceding days. On the hunt Thursday, some of he dogs were lost and until last vening were not yet home, 'Old Hammer Head", one of Maxeiner's rized hounds is among the miss- ng. Residents of the locality keep hickens housed in winter and un- II rather late in the spring thus rotecting poultry from ravages made by hungy foxes. In the win- er, the animals leave the deep voods where, the young are born n early spring, and keep pretty much to the open space.s and to ivilization where food can be ob- ained and where hunters can be polled. It is a common sight for unters to catch a glimpse of a ox fleeing from a small mound r a husked cornshock, where It. ad been sleeping in the winter un. From his vantage he see the unter first and Is up and away. 5 ups with their fox parents are sunlly seen at corn planting time.

William Solterman of Humbert spots." He thinks the reason men have prettier gams than women is because they wear shoes with pretty much the same heel-height throughout their lives. Of course there are exceptions, and he spotted a group of girls at a Milwaukee drugstore soda fountain—all of whom had perfect leg measurements. Now our leg expert, who has made stocklings for 'Ziegfield's Follies, George White Scandals, Earl Carroll's Vanities, and at present for Hollywood movie stars says he belives Milwaukee girls on the average have the prettiest legs in America. (Miss Dean is from North Carolina.) According to our authority, your legs do not have to meet Miss Dean's dimensions to wow the boys or get the plaudits of leg experts. Your leg measurements might vary because you are small b'oned or large boned, but If you are in proportion according to the basic 8 M:-12V;-19 H inch rule you still can lead the glamor parade.
