Curry County jackrabbits were being slain “goin’ and comin’” as local boys competed for a $15 prize, The Clovis Journal reported. Two ears were required to be counted as one kill. … County Sheriff Dick Moye announced he’d declared “war on all law violators” and was busy raiding saloons and gambling joints. … The newspaper warned readers to watch out for “two tramps in town.” The strong, healthy-looking fellows were telling “tales of woe” and convincing residents to give them food and clothing. … The Model Grocery (phone number was 29) advertised peas at 10 cents per can.
