Hour 7 I as others Daisy June is a old fox terrier of sorts and Tony is her offspring Both have become honorary members of the Waukesha fire de- Daisy June formerly owned by a veteran at hospital is a well-mannered pooch who has become one of the fixtures of the lead truck at No 1 fire station Tony meanwhile is a rapscallion pup who considers playing with a ball more worthwhile than being on duty However his friends at the fire station are not ing too much concern about Tony knowing that he will no doubt grow up one of these days so that he may take over when Daisy June ceases to be so active Lead Truck Daisy June has been in a fire department two years She was a well-trained dog but ly her master could not keep dog while hospitalized so the men adopted Daisy The terrier lost little time in catching on to the routine of the fire station Soon she noticed when the boys had to make a run The first couple of times she away from the trucks But after some coaxing she learned to on to the seat of the first truck out Only once did she leave that point of vantage at a fhe She was called on this misbehavior at once Now she will remain perched on the seat and a light of pride in her eyes as her buddies ex- the blaze After the return trip to the tion Daisy June remains on the seat until she is ordered by one of the department members to come down Can Detect Alarm Phone Daisy June is miraculous in more ways than one For instance she can determine the difference be- tween the ring of the telephone which sounds a fire alarm and that of the other telephone used for routine calls The alarm tele- phone has a red cord while the other has the conventional black cord She doesn't bother herself when the black corded telephone rings but she is up on her feet in a ment when the red corded phone shrills As firemen swing into tion Daisy June leaps onto the scat of the set for the run However it took Daisy June a little time to get used to the routine of the department in the morning hours At precisely 8 both trucks are started and tested When she first came to the department Daisy June would leap on the truck all set for the run She soon learned that this was just a part of testing equipment Now when the trucks are started at 8 o'clock she remains unperturbed The little fox terrier is an ing character She will sit at a table and paw through a telephone tory or magazine But she won't do so unless given a pair of es to Tony Snuffs Out Cigarets Her offspring Tony although a rascal forever from the cigaret and then stomp them out He will also snuff out a carelessly thrown lighted match Tony is not permitted to on he trucks at the station and the only time he will go near the two vehicles Is to retrieve his ball When an alarm is sounded and the rucks started Tony will scamper away to a corner and remain there until they return Tony's a Chow Hound Table manners of the two dogs vary too according to the nen Tony always manages to jet first choice with his aking over when her offspring is And more often than not Tony manages to consume all the food When eating out of someone's hand Tony has the nasty habit of icking one's hand or fingers But Daisy June always the lady takes he food daintily never touching fingers On the whole Daisy June chooses Lo relax under the desk where she is near the telephone while Tonj is more apt to sniffing at the locker in which his ball is always wanting someone to play with him H 19 mother and erf tat depart PLANT MANAGER KILLED KENOSHA E Long 60 general works mana ger of the Nash Motors division o Nash
