THURSDAY, JULY 1,1, 1960 THE BILLINGS COUNTY PIO EER. MEDORA, N. DAK III I I IIII I I DOGS AND TODDLERS. By Bob Bartos :Manager, Frlskies Research Kennels When you're the proud owner of both a dog and a baby, and the baby reaches the crawling or toddling stage, should Fido be allowed to share the rug or the floor with baby? This ques- tion invariably presents itself to most dual owners and much depends on the individual dog and the individual baby. If your pet is fairly rugged, but is gentle by nature and has steady nerves, you're reasonably m, safe as far as the dog is con- cerned. If the baby, in turn, shows no fear of Fido, the two will probably thoroughly enjoy each other's company. Remember, though, that while most any dog will tolerate a gTeat deal of hardship at the hands of children, there may come a day when he's not feel- ing up to snuff and, should the small fry get overly rough, he may gi~e vent to his annoy- ance. For this reason, it's ad- visable to let baby know right fl'om the start that he's not to subject the dog to such indig- nities as tail.tugging, ear-pull- ing and pinching. Even a small baby comes to know by the tone of your voice, if not by words, when he's being repri- manded. If the baby shows fear of the dog, don't force the dog on the baby. Keep Fido out of the room while baby is down on the floor, but bring him back in the room when the baby gets put in his pen, chair or crib. In time, watching the dog from a dis- tance, the child will lose his fear. Similarly, if your dog is nervous and high-|trung, or if he always tucks his tail be- tween his legs when baby toddles toward him, it's best to keep Fido out of the way, at least until the tot has mastered the art of walking. Feeding Tip." Poor appetite may result from a deficiency of Vitamin B-I. Giving your dog an all.purpose dog food such as Friskies, which contains liver, will assure an adequate supply of this important vitamin. ~TICE OF HEARING PETITION FOR PROBATE of FOREIGN WIhL STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA, ~ I )ss County oi: Billings ~ ] IN COUNTY COURT [ I,N TILE MATTER OF THE :ESTATE,I .OF ,RLVf'H E~TES S~IITH, also known as RUT~t E.

Don't ovel-eat to keep you Too food lit, tlebffbungry,~actoMly covered in an sleepy, flonal ! i Stop occasionally for. minute or so BEFORE you feel fired. You will save time in the long run because a one-minute break while still alert will do more than a ten-mlnute stop after you have started to get drowsy. Elimination of physical hazards f r o m modern turnpikes has introduced a mental hazard which can be just as deadly. It may well be the cause of most of the "unexplain- able" perfect- weather, perfect-road acci- dents. Claude C. Stubbe, chief safety engineer for Mutual Service Casualty Insurance Com- pany, has carefully studied the new danger and offers a few simple suggestions that could save your life. *'. STUBBE Called highway hypnosis, the mental hazard is a trance- like state that affects drivers after several hours of undis- tracted motion, wind noise, and tire hum. It does not occur in cities with stop lights and cross-traffic or on small roads with hills, turns, and irregular paving. A simple experiment suggested by Stubbe illustrates just how dangerous highway hypnosis can be. All you need is a comfortable chair and an electric fan. Move the chair to a window so that you see mostly sky while you sit in it. Put the fan on the floor a few feet from the chair and directed away from the chair. Now start the fan, relax in the chair and look at the sky. Think about whatever comes to mind but don't think hard. After just 15 minutes, you will be amazed at how hard it is to "get with it" again. The time required to recover and react is dange ously long at highway speeds. Staying ale r t requires conscmus effort andt he effort should become a habit. The job of staying alert can (and should be interesting. Try, for instance, to guess the num- ber of miles to the farthest point you can see ahead. You will be surprised at how far off you can be at first: and how close you can hit it with a little practice. Here are just a few of the many ways of "staying with it" while driving on modern highways. You can probably invent many more of y o u r own. e Your passenger can help--by sharing the driv- ing if posslble--by staying alert whether or not she drives. Con- versation automatically keeps you touch with what is going on. By keeping track of the map and the route and serving a~ "navigator" she can also save time and miles in unfamiliar metropolitan areas and inter-- changes.
