boy because, of too much work and
no play on this desert plain, it will
not be the fault of the good people
of Deming. All the mothers in this
town are going to adopt the whole
36,000 guardsmen and if any horned
sick boy wants to say "dad" to the
worst crab in town, he can do if with
no unfavorable cometjark. .
