For the month of Novem

Luther Norton of Wrap and Pack got a 120 lb.
buck. Luther said he killed the deer with a New
Model 94, 30-30 Winchester. Howard Tiger went

a goat and thought it was a deer.

tache. Someone said, "Charlie had to cut his off
after he got glue in it”. There’s one of three things
that could have happened to Duane’s: he stepped
on it and pulled it off; his wife made him cut it
off; or as he has a habit of smoking cigarettes so
short, he could have set it afire.
A couple of guys on No. 5 said, "Now that deer
season is over, Harold Misenheimer will have to
pull away the heating pads he has been using to
keep his feet warm on these cool mornings.” And
he’ll also have to tear down the nest he has built
up in a tree to spot those deer. They might come

And another vacationer was Ashley Dickson.
Ashley spent a week of relaxation and hunting.
The hunting was no good. He saw one buck, but
it was too far away.
Here is a debatable question. Will the army or
matrimony get Paul Seagle? He is in line for both
this month. The bride to be is Betty Jennings
from Franklin. The wedding is to take place De
cember 22 in Franklin. Good luck, Paul.
Roland Mull still hasn’t made up his mind. He
had a ’49 Chevy traded for a Cadillac, back to his

speed is beyond my telling.

Harry Blake knew a good time for Fred to take it
to the market. He was accompanied by Harry and
the calf was purchased by Harry. (The beef mar
