"DIBS" and "F3BS"
The poultry business seems to be the most successful and also the most
popular, in Lawndale at present - Due principally to the fact that there
is a great demand for both eggs and fryers. Among the more successful of
these poultrymen are, TAL WAIjLACE, CHARLES FOHNEY JR. BUCK SOUTHARDS, TQM
LATTIMORJ:, JOM SHUFFORD, and GUI'I SOUTHARDS. Of the above mentioned,
aiARLES FORNEY JR. seems to have the lead - His record is 2 pounds in
7 weeks - not bad - not bad.
It is reliably reported that Charles has throe "Dibs" that have been
weighed so often, that when he starts to open the chicken house door
they will fall on their backs and turn their feet up, ejq^ecting to be
wei^ied again. Of course CHARLES claims he just grabs any that might
be handy, but he does have three that do not have as many feathers on
their backs as the rest of the flock.
And it is also reported that vfhile CHARLES v;as v/eighing said three
"Dibs'' the other ni^'ht in FRED Riai/iRD'S Store, one of them did not
come up to the cicpected vjeight, vreighing only 1 pound, 15 ounces j but
I ni’ter a little investigating, CHARLIiS being a good sport, lauded a
little and remarked, "If I had only weighed this one a moment sooner,
it would have ^;eighed 2 pounds,"
