Buck-Aroo-While her elders go
riding horseback, two-year-old Su-
sie Bronson prefers a shaggy steed
like Buck, a fqmiliar figure around
Sun Valley, Idaho. Even in his
most joyful moments, the St. Ber-
nard dog looks sad-eyed.

Driving from his Texas home to a Wyoming fishing camp, Elliott Roosevelt, son of the President, stopped

Plane Builder-It took Ted Westlake, 17, aviation enthusiast from
Patchogue, N. Y., 800 hours to build this model of a Seversky pursuit

University graduate, is federal tea-taster for Boston. In a year, he'll
judge samples fom 24,000,000 pounds of tea.

Straight Shooter-Too ill to de-
fend her title last year, Mrs. Lela
Hall of Strasburg, Mo., will return
to fray at the Mid-August Grand
American trapshooting tourney in
Dayton, Ohio. She won the North
American Women's title four con-
secutive times.
