Who Got the Weenies?
Someone who evidently had
a taste for weenies helped him
self to about six pounds of that
delectable table "delicacy" at
the Legion Hall last Saturday
night. When the supper things
had been cleared away there
was that amount of "hot dog"
remaining. A couple of the
house committee went to the
supper room to wrap up the
sausages with the idea of re
turning them to the meat
market They looked around,
but no "dogs" were in evidence,
so they arrived at the conclusion
that some hungry fellow had
appropriated them. No doubt
the stolen stuffers sufficed as the
piece de resistance for a Sunday

batteries. 50 cents. Maupin
