Dean Frischknecht Professional Honorable Mention Anecdote In April 1926. I had just turned six years of age and was back of the house inside our chicken yard watching the commotion going on among our twenty laying hens and the big white rooster. That domineering rooster needed to be taught a lesson I picked up a hard clod of earth, an inch in diameter, and with all my strength threw it at the rooster That clod hit him in the head and he keeled over on his side, not a wing fluttering. Wow! I had killed the rooster With tears running down my face, I sped to the house to report the bad news Grandma Christensen was in the kitchen "I threw a hard clod at the rooster and it hit him in the head and killed him." She calmly said, "Don't cry We'll just cook him for supper." She grabbed a butcher knife to take off his head, and 1 lead the way to where the rooster lay. 140
