Given War ClubSource:Mincqua Times January 13, 1928
The scene was the district attorney's office. as our story opens, the D.A. is seated behind his desk, applying linment to his hand and jaw.
In comes a Western Union boy. He is carrying a large package. The box is marked for one Earl Kennedy. That gentleman blushes the same color as the marks over his left eye, and calls to a friend to, "Come see the flowers some one sent me."
Business of opening the package follows.
Inside the box was a caveman's club, three feet in lenght, being about eight inches in circumference at the business end and tapering down to about four inches at the handle. The butt end of the club was filled with 50 spike nails, the heads of which had been splotched with red paint, and the handle is tied with huge green ribbons, in recognition of the D.A.s Irish blood.
The club will probably he arranged on the wall with Earl's fraternity emblems, diplomas, deer heads, and football pictures. three local yong men are suspected of having spent last evening in making the club.--Rhinelander Daily News.
