There's a man living in Frank

What's more, he volunteered (or
Roy M. (Buddy) Biddle. Jr.,
took part in atomic tests in the
Nevada desert in 1953.
At the time, an Army clerk at
Ft. Jackson, S. C., he and a pal
offered themselves when the call
came for "guinea pigs".
The Army constructed a mock
town on the Nevada testing
ground, and on the outskirts of
the town, at varying distances,
trenches were dug. Loaded with
combat gear, the soldiers were
placed in the ditches.
WHEN AMAZON Annie? the
code name for that particular
test ? cut loose, the men were to
count to a certain number and
then stand up in the trenches.
The atomic cannon let go its
shell, there was a blinding flash,
then a blast; the men counted
and stood up. The concussion
knocked them down.
After the blast, the soldiers
clambered out of their trenches
and walked through the shelled
area to test the effects of radi
ation (of which there was little,
according to Buddy).
Buddy thought it interesting,
but unspectacular. He was more
impressed with nearby Las Vegas,
where he spent an evening or

An old-time Chapel Hillian call

recently and demanded of the
clerk who answered: "Who's this?"
Trying to be cooperative in
playing the guessing game as re
quested, the clerk replied, "Well,
I can't tell for sure, but it sounds
like a rather nice, middle-aged
man. If you'll just give me a hint,
I believe I can guess."
The caller dropped the question
and asked for the person to whom
he wished to speak.

Lowell says there's no detectable

main difference is that there's
less blood in it.
