Some dog owners, however, are thumbing their noses at the idea, citing a study made 20 years ago by the University of Hamburg. Researchers, at that time, did not find poodle noseprints unique.
SEE NO GOOD, SPEAK NO GOOD
Almost from the time the Athletics arrived in Kansas City in 1955, there were rumors that Owner Charles O. Finley was eager to skip town with his team. But the evidence was usually speculative, and Charlie O. kept mum. Now that the A's have moved to Oakland, however, St. Louis Cardinal Broadcaster Harry Caray feels free to tell about working an exhibition game between the A's and the Cardinals in 1963. Recalls Caray: "I was amazed at the turnout—32,500 people—and kept saying what a great baseball town Kansas City was. Right in the middle of the game I got a telephone call from Finley. 'Cut that kind of talk out,' he told me. 'I want to move out of Kansas City and you're messing me up.' "
Look out, Oakland.
Caution Fishermen: Cigarette Smoking May Be Hazardous to Your Fish's Health.
For years outdoorsmen have reported seeing trout strike cigarette butts, and game wardens are finding an increasing number of filter tips in the stomachs of fish.
The modern fish is also gulping down snap caps from cans at an alarming rate. Leonard Ritchie, a wildlife officer "in Presque Isle, Me., says "Outdoorsmen tell me these things will eventually kill fish. I have talked to several people who caught trout last summer and found caps inside them. Apparently, as the cap flutters to the bottom, it is an attraction some fish can't resist."
The moral from the conservation viewpoint is clear. Don't cast a snap cap upon the waters, unless you add some line and a treble hook.
