Big policemen with real guns
stood watch outside Billy Rani-
erl's home today. Inside, ten-
year-old Billy and his two broth
ers played with toy guns.
There have been guns around
Billy since he became a famous
little boy last September when he
pointed out the men who kidnaped
him and held him prisoner. - The
weary policemen pacing the side
walk in front of his house gripped
their guns a little tighter. Just
last week when assassins shot a
man who was to have testified
against Billy's kidnapers. ,
So toy guns were Billy's choice
for a Christmas present.
Judge Robert E. Gentsel, who
presided at the trial of the young
ster's abductors, gave Bill a new
ten dollar bill for Christmas and
his dad gave him another.
"I spent, $18.50 of that to Wj
the judge a present,"- Billy said
today. "But this afternoon Alex,
baby brother and I went out and
bought a toy gun apiece. They
were only a quarter but they work
and shoot sparks."
