The Managing Editor of this paper
had known John Briscoe since he was
a boy, and the better to know him
i was to like him the more. Gifted
with a brilliant mind he had what
was more, an understanding heart—
one that could make allowances for
the limitations of others and be fair.
A world so sadly in need of such at-
tributes is pocrer for his untimely
by a large German police dog while
he was making his paper route on
his bicycle Wednesday evening. His
leg was lacerated so badly near the
ankle that a physician had to be call-
ed to attend him.
