Tired of Pigeons, Boys Try Humans

LITCHVILLE (AP)—Small boys with rifles threw a scare into Litchville residents the other day.

Apparently tired of hunting pigeons in a local elevator, the boys turned their .22 rifle uptown, through an elevator window.

One bullet whizzed by Lynn Flach, working in a filling station, and buried itself into a tree above his head. A.H. Bocksweld took cover when another missed him by five feet. The bullets were fired from two blocks away.

The boys, of fourth-grade age, where given a lecture on the proper use of firearms and were warned against repeating the performance.
