nap, decides to
shoot squirrel
Dec. 1, 1935 -Instead of napping after
Thanksgiving dinner, Frank Shinledecker
went squirrel hunting.
Shingledecker, groggy after his plentiful
turkey-day meal, decided that a walk and a
whiff of fresh air could do him some good.
To protect himself from any strangers or

took his gun along for his stroll through
Pittsfield township.
Reports are unclear whether the squirrel
was the instigator in the incident, but when

Montgomery bus boycott will go on
view this week at the state Capitol as
part of the 50th anniversary celebra-

The exhibit - "381 Days: The
Montgomery Bus Boycott Story" -
will be on view from Dec. 2 to Jan.
14 and at Alabama A&M University
in Huntsville from Feb. 4 to April 6.
It then starts a 14-city national tour
through 2009.
"It's an American story," said Mar-
quette Folley, project director for the
Smithsonian's traveling exhibitions,
yesterday. "This story allows us to
know that one individual standing
with commitment will be joined by
many, and together we can start a

Rosa Parks, a black woman, was
arrested Dec. 1, 1955, for refusing
to give up her seat to a white man.

segregated bus system.
Although Parks's arrest was the
catalyst for the boycott, the exhibit
also examines the contributions of
the many Montgomery blacks whose
refusal to ride the bus hit the city
hard financially and drew national
attention to the emerging civil rights
"The lynchpin of all of this is
that people did it nonviolently," said
Ruth Rambo, associate state director
of AARP, which is underwriting the
exhibit. "It was a question of looking
at the finances of the city and seeing
where they can make a difference,
and here we are with more opportu-
nities than we had 50 years ago."
The exhibit, with assistance from
the Alabama Historical Commission
and Troy University's Rosa Parks
Library and Museum, will be cele-
brated today with an opening recep-

While Parks's arrest inspired the
boycott, other black women were the
plaintiffs in the federal court lawsuit

ruling that outlawed segregated pub-

Principals of that case - attor-
