If no one else appreciated yesterday's freakish heavy snowfall the family of Dr. and Mrs. Thomas De Kornfeld, 2581 Hawthorne, seemed to. It provided perfect workout weather for their pet Samoyed, harnessed husky-style to pull Anne (in front) and Christine on a sled. Looking on are Mrs. De Kornfeld, Tommy (behind the dog) and Jim (right). The Weather Bureau measured the snowfall at 2.2 inches.
The weather and the fact that it was April Fool's Day provided the ideal opportunity for this doubly seasonal gag by an anonymous wit at the Butts & Swisher Co. realty firm 214 E. Washington. The plastic Santa Claus was taken out of storage during the snowstorm.
