Tossy has been given her walking pa- pers. The five-year-old Shetland pony's problem is garbage cans. She can't resist poking into them. In the old days, hundreds of j horses were used to haul toads j through the boom town's muddy j streets and to move 2old dredges over the gold-rich' gravel surrounding Nome. But the number dwindled and dwindled until Tossy and an- other horse were the only two in town. Then the other horse w a s killed recently to provide food for a dog team on display for tourists. with the town lo herself and left to roam. Tessy increased Mail action no surprise CALGARY (CPi The fed- eral government's decision to take over mail (Delivery service now handled by private con- tractors didn't surprise mem- bers of the Charles Schneider Mail Contractors Lid. of Cal- gary. Charles Schneider, president of the company, said employees were aware of the switch, an- nounced Tuesday by Postmas- ter General Jean-Pierre Cote. Mr. Schneider said 130 to 150 men, including part time workers, are eligible to be ab- sorbed 'Jin public service by the end "of 1972. This is the dead line for integration of truck sen-ice involving IS ci- ties. "We started hauling mail from the train station '11 years ago with one truck and its grad- ually grmvn over the Mr. Schneider said. The company now has 70 trucks. her assaults on Nome's garbage j cans and the city administration decided she had to go, one way j or the other. Happily for Tessy. it's the other. She'll be shippped by air to Kenai, Alaska, south of An- chorage, as soon as space on a cargo plane can be arranged by her keeper, Rev. Paul Bills of the Assembly of God church POI.ICE UPSET "This horse has been in ev- erybody's garbage pail and the wl'iole town is upset." the minis- ter said. "The police and the mayor have been getting all kinds of complaints." Until she developed a pen- chant for garbage cans, Tossy had been a town pet for Nome's residents. Robert Morris, who originally bought Tessy, said: "It got to IK a real bother. The kids won't pay much attention to her any- more. I couldn't find anyone to buy her, so I gave her away." And the hay Tessy munched along with the tidbits she found in the garbage cans was expen- to 5150 a ton by air, with no road links between Nome and other Alaska cities.
