Hanson were caught taking money
out of parking meters — npnirt. 1
was at Police Headquarters when
a nice «)d lady rushed in to re-
port them.
"It was dark but 1 saw their
faces in the flashlight beam," she
said breathlessly ."You can't trust
anybody these days!"
She got flustered when Chief
Benson explained that Specs and
Buck are aMMorized collectors-
working nights after their reg-
ular jobs. "Have to get 'em uni-
forms," said Benson. "Third time
they've been turned in!"
From where ! sit, we ought to

something, white he preferred a
glass of beer.) Me sure you have a

Wilson. "Like the oid cavalry
general. 1 have always believed
in riding straight for the sound of
the guns."
