HOW TO ACT
IN A TORNADO
By PAT BENNETT
Stanton Brunson stuck his
head in the door and asked the
little group if they were aware
of what.Hallie Norman, Cham-
ber of Commerce manager, had
done when the tornado alert
sounded last Friday.
"No," said Athan Lowrie—and

"He ran and hid in One of i
those chugholes in front of the
post office," said Stanton.. He
went away chuckling.
Rancher Brunson has long car-
lied oh a campaign of verbal
harassment to get the City of
Crosbyton to smooth things out
in front of the post office. Even
after a dav in the saddle, ap.par.--_

topic of where Crosbyton, goes
