Dogs & Guns # 1


"POLICE WIN MASCOT, GIRL LOSES PET -- CHICAGO -- When acting Captain Louis Capparelli of Maxwell Street police station in Chicago purchased Lassie for his daughter, his wife insisted he keep the dog at the station until she was housebroken. Lassie approved the atmosphere of one of the toughest lockups in Chicago, walked beats with cops, refused to be transplanted. Capparelli has had to insist she spend at least eight hours a day in the station to get some sleep. Far from being a child's pet, Lassie is now the pistol packin' mascot of 200 burly cops." 4/7/44

People with guns collection # 58


"ADVANCE FOR SUNDAY MAY 31, 1970, WITH UPI STORY BY JAMES PURDY - OKLAHOMA CITY: Tim Holt, hero of 140 western movies, checks out six-guns used during 22-year career. The pistols were used by his father, Jack Holt, a 'good guy' in the Saturday thrillers before him. Holt, 52, now a radio sales manager in Oklahoma City, thinks the movie industry is missing a financial bet by not bringing back the traditional knight in white Stetson who rarely drank anything stiffer than sarsaparilla." 5/31/70
