HOUSTON (AP)—A mechanic
who plucked S44AOO from tbe air
conditioning unit of a wrecked car
has turned the search for 857.000
taken in a faked New Year’s Eve
bank robbery here to Wrens, Ga.
Police Chief C. W. Brown of

phone the 544,000 was found after
a IBM Oldsmohile crashed into a
telephone pole. Four Savannah,
Corporation Court Judge A. H.
Prince, who admits to haring Iota
of trouble about dogs, explained,
“we are holding any one who har-
bors a dog or claims ownership to
one responsible for his care and
that includes vaccination."
Meanwhile. George Shoemaker
of tbe Orange City-County Health
unit was in Bridge City today in-
vestigating a report that a dog
there bad attacked a man who had
to be hospitalized in St Mary s
Hospital at Port Arthur.
Dr. JH. H. Key, health unit di-
rector, said details of the report
were unknown, but that Shoe-
maker had been sent to B. O.
Sparkle's night club—where the
incident was reported to have hap-
pened—to investigate the matter.
Bridge City is the spot where at
least two rabid dogs have been
reported in the past two months
and officers have repeatedly ap-
pealed to dog owners to keep
their animals penned until danger
of further cases has passed.
There was no indication, how-
ever, that the attacking dog might
have had the disease.
