Betsy Williams University of Texas coed is playing her guitar in front of the University a Littlefield Fountain. Guitar sales soared to 750,000 in 1964. Many in this area remember Harry Kuhn brother of mrs. James j. Kelly of 209 Union St. And Edward j. Kuhn of 122 fill More St. Harry was born in Bennington and was formerly employed at the pol graphic company in North Bennington. He and lits family Are now located in Montvale . They were visitors in the area Over easter weekend. It is of interest to learn that his 17-year-old son Harry Kuhn Iii is making quite a name for himself in High school sports.

The school which he attends is state Champion in group 3 track 1964-65. The Kuhns have three other children Mary Noel Virginia and Susan. A of of interest to several in Bennington and Vicinity was a feature on the Manuel Rockwood Home on Chestnut Street in Albany ., which appeared in the times Union tuesday of this week. Ellen Scott writes that the Rock Woods purchased the Home about a year ago and that mrs. Rockwood has decorated it with Many of the discarded treasures she gathered in the demolition of the South mall. Her interest in Antiques led her to the South mall buildings which were being razed for a new state capital Complex As she was sure that Many items could be salvaged. Many of the Antiques they have Are from herbs and her husbands family and once were in their former Home in Twenty acres More or less 28 bringing Mem up alive by Carlo Wolter although we never thought of our wildlife As a problem some of our friends considered it a nuisance. You should have some Domestic animals they said to keep the wild ones away. Thus they suggested the idea that any inconvenient City apartment pet would find a Good Home at Skylark. Right from the beginning offers to present us with a Pony a retired race horse a Goat a Donkey a Parrot dogs cats and what have you came in rapid successions. A Chicago Friend of mine believed that no country Home should be without a Monkey. In a going on a trip around the world a she wrote a so i m sending you Mico. He loves the Mico was a South american marmoset so Small that he could get lost in a coat pocket. I could just see him hiding mischievously in a clump of weeds never to be seen again. Unfortunately my Friend left Chicago before my letter of rejection got there. She and Mico arrived at Skylark a few Days later. Mico greeted us with a loud screeching whistle of hostility. He pressed his nose Between the bars of his travelling wooden Bird Cage and bared his Needle Sharp Teeth like a snarling lion. Mico and i never hit if off and he bit me the first Chance he had. He climbed up on drapes knocked Flower pots from the window Sills and jumped screaming onto my head whenever my Back was turned. But he ignored Charles. A give him time a said my Friend a a he la get used to a sure a i protested a but i wont get used to him. Can to you Board him in an animal shelter a a ooh no a she said a i done to want him Back. He a yours. So you see you la have to get Choice 1961 Chevrolet 4 door Sedan v-8 Auto trans. A Large motor s1195 i960 Plymouth i Ury Hardtop Jet Black full Power r amp a Auto trans. Tinted Glass Power steering amp brakes s895 Liggett Bosworth sales a service North Bennington Road Bennington it. Butch with the author. But we never did. When my Friend left a few Days later Charles returned Mico to his mistresses car safely tucked away in his Bird Cage. We never heard whether he was discovered before or after he reached new York City. It was sort of sad to have spoiled a Nice Friendship with a Monkey. In spite of our decisive a nos a we acquired a Small menagerie. Shortly after the Mico episode Uncle Leo arrived with a wooden crate. A there a he said a you will need a what is it a i asked looking through the slats at something very Pink. A a garbage disposal a chuckled Uncle Leo. A now you wont have to Bury it a but i want to Bury it. It makes Good Uncle Leo laughed. A so does this. Even he was right. When Charles unpacked the Box he held up a Pinky a a squealing Rose col or dyed Piglet wearing a bejewelled dog harness. It looked just like a live Ceramic Piggy Bank. Pinky was the result of a Lucky number on a raffle ticket. But Uncle Leos Long Island Suburbia ruled out pigs. So Pinky came to Skylark. We installed him in the Chicken Coop. But a Bear and a Bobcat tried to get in to get Pinky out and we ran nightly to his screaming demand for Protection. After a week of this we moved him to the barn under the garage where he grew big and fat. Charles groomed him like a horse and kept his bed filled with clean Hay which Pinky preferred to eat. He was the cleanest pig i Ever saw. Although the stall floor was dirt he never wallowed in mud. He was actually barn broken and used Only one Corner of his pen. Thus Pinky was far from being a was dirty As a shortly after Pinky a arrival Uncle Leo and Walter Charless brother returned with a two year old Irish setter. Butcher boy was a big headed Broad chested beast with a coat As bristly As a Brush and a Tail that looked like a Bamboo Rake. He looked terrible and so thin that my fingers fitted Between his ribs. It was Clear that he had been mistreated. Because he had failed to bring Home a cordon Bleu from a dog show was doomed to be destroyed. To save his life he came to Skylark. He was a nervous wreck and so scared that the Click of a Light switch sent him trembling into a Corner. Nor was he House broken. He had never been inside a House. His first time in the living room he mistook my prize Angel Wing Begonia in full Bloom standing in a Green Jardiniere on the floor for a Weed along the Fence. Then doleful eyes cast upward he squatted before me very pleased with himself. It was understandable that until further developments Butcher boy had to be banned to the Chicken Coop Mico loved whiskey where he howled and bayed mournfully. But he Learned fast. In a few Days he was Housebroken. And Little by Little he overcame his fear. However training him to our ways failed completely. He was absolutely sure that everybody loved him and he was absolutely right. Skate our cat befriended him almost immediately and Butch had no objections to sharing his bed with her. And Pinky showed his approval by taking to Barking like a dog. But under our patient guidance Butcher boy became a gentleman eventually growing a Glossy red coat and Long Silky feathers representative of the Long line of champions he came from. He was also unpredictable. We never knew what to expect of him. Once when a Hobo begged for food Butch paid no attention when the Man walked into the breezeway. However when he tried to leave Butch snarled like a Wolf and let him out. But when the Man stopped too scared to move Butch gave him a puzzled look and walked away. On occasions he was oblivious to the world around him ignoring everybody and everything. Other times he showed his full size and strength by bracing his feet against the door and Barking madly refusing admission to our friends he knew Well. We were glad that contrary to our friends belief Butch and skate and Pinky did no to keep the wildlife away. For one night we were thrilled to have a Bear look in our living room window.
