DOCTOR HUNTS RABBITS
WITH PRIMITIVE WEAPONS
Wichita, Kas —Dr. Milton O
Nyberg hunts jack rabbits with a
bow and arrow.
He claims an arrow will shoot
30 yards almost as accurately as a
gun. His distance record is 370
yards. Frequently he has bagged
Jack rabbits on the run.
In a contest with a group of
Cheyenne Indians, Dr. Nyberg found
he could outshoot them.

We heard of a man the
other day having ten
stitches taken in his scalp
after being in an automo
bile accident: when the
doctor charged him $20.00
for the job, he remarked:
"Gee Doctor, I didn’t want
hem stitching, I wanted
just plain sewing."

Just ns a mutter of record it is recalled that tilts time two years ago
there were six candidates for mayor of Shelby, and six candidates for
the four nldermanlc berths, a.s compared with three announced can
didates and a likely candidate for mayor this year, and five candidates
for tin- city board. : - ■ —-——
It is also recalled that It became
necessary, in a last-minute move,
two years ago to draft several can
didates lor the school board, and
In our opinion Woodrow Wilson
draft methods may be necessary
lor tire school board portion tilts,
Incidentally the six candidates for
mayor lit 19-7 were: T. j. Babing

sey. Orlando 101am, T. W. Hamrick
and A II Webb That's not how the
count of votes ranked them; it's
just a list in alphabetical order.
Boyd Holloway, the John Bar
rymore of the road shows in
these parts, and often referred
to on the street as Milt Tol
bert because he owns, manages,
and serves as leading man,
handy man, and whut-nnt of
the popular Milt Tolbert show,
gave us a new word In one of
his lines at the Tolbert tent
the other night. The word was
“nowatlmes.” It sounded so use
ful as an expression replacing
the overworked “nowadays"
that we expected lo find it in t
the dictionary, but did not, al
through Webster’s latest Inter
national dors list "now.inlghls”
along with "nowadays."

The Greensboro News paragrapher,
