An automobile dealer here reported that a patron made a $25 cash deposit on a new car. When the order finally came through, the customer gave the dealer, the check and drove off in the car. The next day, with more orders for automobiles than there were automobiles in sight, the dealer discovered how bad a' bad check can be. IT'S THE W H I T E G R A N D F I N E S T F L O U R I N T H E Library of Congress Wants to Know if Kids Got Mule Re-Assembled this: By BARMAN W. NICHOLS United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Jan. 15.--U.R-- The Library of Congress wants to know if the kids at lona school in Fort Myers. Fla., ever got that mule re-assembled. It was like is: Some of the pupils were kicking through the underbrush in the woods one day when they uncovered a heap o'f bones. A former mule, it turned out. They went to their biology teacher and asked how about lugging the remains in and patching them up? The teacher's first impulse was to throw up her hands, scream a little and say "perish forbid."" Then she remembered all of the fine lessons she had taught the youngsters about initiative and enterprise. She promised to cogitate. She March o! Dimes Stages Appeal From Jan. 15-30 cogitated awhile and then took the problem to the supervisor, Mrs. Edna Burhans. Mrs. Burhans went to the principal. The principal lifted a brow and called a meeting of minds--the school board. Letter to Congressional Library Eventually, Mrs. Burhans was commissioned to write a letter to the Library of Congress. She explained the situation and asked if the library had some kind of chart on how to'put a mule back together after it had fallen apart. The letter found its way to the desk of Mr. Milton M. Plumb, Jr., in charge of the information office at the library. He was educated in the rough and tumble city room of a Detroit newspaper, and his background definitely did not cover the subject of mules-yon the hoof or otherwise. But in years of opening the library's mail he had learned not to be shocked by anything. Hadn't he solved a weighty one the day before for the man who wrote 'in that he had won' two Siamese cats in a gin-rummy game? The man wanted the Siamese words for "gin" and "rummy" so he could name the cats. Mr. Plumb wrote right back with the answer--"tak" and "plaek." And hadn't he made life a litle more bearable for a 12-year-old Connecticut boy? Important Things Solved He had, indeed. The lad said that he was getting sick and tired of being pushed around by 14- and 15-year-old boys. What, he asked, was the latest dope on jujitsu so he could practice up and show those big guys a thing or two? And please hurry! Mr. Plumb hurried to the reference card file and looked under "J." He mailed the kid the name of the very latest book on jujitsu and told him to get it from his local library. With all these important things solved, why should he be stumped by a mule? First, he looked in Webster and learned that a mule (of. mul, masc., mule. fern. fr. L. mulus, mula) is an animal that looks like a horse but isn't. It has big flappv ears, a funny looking tail and" small hooves. It's stubborn also, and makes an awful racket when unhappy. Hopes Mule Put Together Armed with that information, all written down, he went to the reference room. He found all sorts of information about mules. Volumes. Everything he wanted The annual March of Dime*. .spearhead of the fight against in- · fantilc paralysis, will be held throughout the nation January 15 to 30. it was announced here today by A. M. Hethcrington. 1948 March of Dimes Chairman for Saline county. "The cost of fighting polio has skyrocketed." Mr. llethcnngton said, in pointing out that rising prices and mounting polio incidence have placed a tremendous burden on the lesourccs of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralvsis. which this year celebrates the Tenth Anniversary of its founding by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Mr Hethenngton's March of Dimes Committee is setting up 1948 appeal a record dcmonstra tion of this area's active interest in helping the stricken children of America along the road to health. "Every phase of community life will participate in sending a ring- iVig message of'hope to the unfortunate victims of this crippling disease, which has stricken 80,000 Americans in the past five years,' H.'therington said. Hetherington revealed that every community in the nation was bchig geared to make this the greatest March of Dimes drive in histcvy.

That, in this case, was all the way over to the Smithsonian Institution. Did the institution have a chart, showing where a mule keeps all its bones when it is up and about and looking like a mule?

Death of Recluse Recalls For Social Sn By JAMES MAHOXY United "Press Staff Correspondent N E W P O R T , R. I. UE--The bizarre story of a strange revenge ended with the death of Mrs. Harriet Gardiner Lynch Coogan in a New York hotel suite. She had shut herself up there for 37 years.

I Mrs. Coogan, in her efforts to scale the top rung of the social ladder, moved into a $200.000 mansion, Whitehall, built by her husband. At a fitting climax, she planned the coming-out party of her daughter Jessie. Xo Guests Arrive It was to be the crowning point of their lives. The mansion was decorated lavishly, lights gleamed from every window of the huge house. Mrs. Coogan and her daughter wailed expectantly for ihe guests to arrive. Everyone of importance had been invited. No one arrived. They waited for an hour. Still no or.c came. I Mrs. Coogan had enough. She 'tcok her daughter away, and the l strange revenge of Mrs. Coogan i began.
