Boy wants summer home for his horse "Captain Fury", 1952
Supplementary material reads: "Towers -- Assgn. Captain Fury--the Horse. For Sunday. Illustrated. Is there a little boy or girl in the Los Angeles area who would like to have a gentle, ridable horse for the summer vacation time? If so, Romeo Milano, 10, is willing to give up 'my pal' Captain Fury, a 9-year-old sorrel gelding, for the summer months and possibly longer. 'We may go to Honolulu to live soon,' explained the boy's mother, Mrs. Eleanor Milano yesterday, 'but failing this we plan to move to another neighborhood. Meanwhile, we are making a temporary home for Captain Fury.' Romeo, whose mother credits the horse with aiding the boy's recovery six months ago from an attack of rheumatic fever, has laid down specific rules for anyone who would take Captain Fury for the summer.' 'First, the boy or girl must understand that the Captain, who is a former police department horse, is sweet, gentle and kind,' Romeo said. 'He must be given a good home, be well fed -- plenty of hay and some oats -- and never mistreated. Also a promise to polish the saddle and bridle must be in the bargain.' Inquiries may be directed to Mrs. Milano at her home in the Lincoln Heights district. The telephone is CA 1-0716."
