Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - January 29, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news partly Cloudy a ii Quot i a in these Days i a it. Pleasant Iowa wednesday evening i a. 29, 1959 by George e. Sokolsky Joe goes free Joe a trial for committing a dog nuisance finally reached the Calendar. Joe was accused of having p unformed biologically on the wrong Day in the wrong place at a time when his Only malfeasance was to have escaped Horn his Leash for a few minutes. A sanitation employee garbed in the Blue of a policeman wearing a Cap and badge that resembled a policeman a. Gave Joe a ticket and to me Joe is forever disgraced for he neither barked at nor bit Tho Guy. So the Case came to trial and the sanitation Guy testified that j e was a Cocker Spaniel. Now we in our family do not go in for discrimination racialism or such diversions. Nevertheless we want to make it Clear to All and sundry that Joe is no Cocker Spaniel hint he never was a Cocker Spaniel and has no intention of Ever being a Cocke t Spaniel. Joe is a Keo Hood. J pronounced Kay shooed and Joe a j ancestors go Back to William of i orange�?T.1 time. His or per name is Wal Swaag but i ask you can you imagine running around with a name like Wal Swaag it is like calling a Fine Normal healthy juvenile Montmorency. When we received Joe s Pedigree it was a matter of deep family concern. Nobody in our family has Mich a Long Pedigree. True i know about some of my ancestors on my mothers Side but my fathers ancestors must have been peaceful respectful Folk who left no footprints on the Sands of time. We d to not want Wal Swaag to be too snooty and to feel that he Wras b tier than the rest of us. So we called him Joe after the late senator from Wisconsin. But then this sanitation Guy in a cops uniform called Joe who came from an heroic line of Kees hands who fought and died to keep the Spanish tyrants out of the Netherlands a Cocker Spaniel which is a Sweet Little Lap dog that ladies carry about with them. No lady could carry Joe not far. He is a big dog masculine in All his propensities. It just goes to show that class distinctions Are disappearing in this world. Here is a sanitation Guy who specializes in annoying dogs and he cannot Tell the difference Between one dog and another. It is like calling a greek an italian. Or an inhabitant of Genoa a sicilian. Such name calling has led t dire consequences because we Are All proud of our ancestries if Ani. buegsaasbbg1 by Carrier 3tty per week by mall $7.50 per Yea dragnet closes Iii on killer. _ a.
