The whole question has the state government mildly concerned, as no official in an election year wants to be caught failing to enforce even a ftatute designed only tn kerp a voieless horned toad on its home sands.

"Insurance of All Kinds" Phone 236 j The issue arose when t h i r d i grade pupils of the Davis School i in West Newton, Mass., wrote and asked for a horned toad. "What do you feed a horned toad?" they asked. "We will take very good rare of it. We w i l l pay the postage if you send it." The i n q u i r y passed through due channels of government to the Bureau of Business Research at the University of New Mexico. The bureau parried the query by j writing bark anri telling the third i graders t h a t horned loads wrro 1 nut-of-spasnn, t h a t is the wpathnr wasn't warm enough fnr the harmless l i t t l e lizards to crawl from their desert hid pawn vs. The dr-lrrmined Massachusetts kids immediately sent a l e t t e r ' saying: "We would he happy to a crept , the linrnrd load.

He has considered elevating Elmer from the status of a horned toad to the rank of ambassador. I don't think I can legally do that." he said. "But perhaps the toad could be sent there on a round-trip tour. I'll have to ;ult the attorney general on that point." The feeling is rather general hereabouts, however, that Elmer ought to get his chance to see New England, and the New England kids ought to get a chance to get acquainted with an honest-to- goortness New Mexican. There is a movement under way to escort Elmer to the "Texas line, get him to cross it voluntarily, thr-n fly him on east. The trouble w i t h that is that no one here can t h i n k of an inducement that would get a proud native of New Mexico to cross the Texas border without a return passport. DOROTHY DIX -!
