WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1953 (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEWN Pup in We// /s Problem For Rescuers CARLSBAD. N. M. lift— Bolstered by a multitude of suggestions. Fire Chief Ira Stockwell today took his turn at trying to rescue a 2-month- old pup from the bottom of a dry water well. Ideas by the dozen were offered by newspaper readers and radio listeners. It all began nine days ago when 5-year-old Teresa , Curtis pushed two pups into a hole in her back yard. It's about 10 inches wide at the top and 38 feet deep. Her cousins, Dan Hardin ,15. and Poe Hardin. 12, rescued one of the pups. They lowered a burlap sack and the pup walked into it. But the other little mongrel shied off. * • * THE HARDIN boys have been keeping the crapped pup alive by lowering bowls of milk and cereal. yesterday a couple of Boy Scouts tried unsuccessfully to drop a rope loop over the pup and haul him to safety. New Mexico newspaper and wire service offices were beseiged with suggestions for rescue. One of the plans came from a woman who said: "Send the other puppy down in a basket. The trapped puppy may be so glad to see him he'll climb in the basket too." A fisherman: "Drop a piece net the size of the bottom of the hole to the bottom with ropes tied to the four corners. When he reaches for the piece of meat in the center, jerk him out like a catfish." One man asked, "Why all the fuss?—kick the hole in on top of him." Another offered. "Fill the well to a depth of two or three feet with corks. Do it slowly so the pup can crawl on top. Then fill the well with water so he'll float to the top." "Lower a little boy in s stout pair of coveralls on a rope," suggested a woman, "and let him bring the puppy back," An elderly lady suggested building a lattice work ladder and letting tMe pup climb out.

Looser, 34 .yesterday. Looser, was director of an amateur theatre group. Deputy coroner Shirley BraUan, said this is what must have happened : Looser constructed the gallows set and placed a large mirror to reflect the scene so he could make sketches and designs for costumes. He arranged a break-away sUp knot in the rope as a precaution against accident. This morning, with the noose about his neck, and his .sketchbook nearby, he stepped from the box on which he had been standing strangled, his toes dangling just above the floor. ( BraUan said that when police lifted the body, the slip knot fell apart easily. He said the roughness of the new rope apparently prevented the knot from functioning as Looser had planned.
