By heaven, man, we are turned ’round and ’round in this world, and Fate is the handspike. Who’s to doom, when the judge himself is dragged to the bar?” HERMAN MELVILLE’S AHAB Big Jim West’s dead who used to love playing cops and robbers in Houston with his fleet of Cadillacs equipped with riot guns, pistols, and two-way radios. He had a lot of money. His father left him some. He made a whole lot in oil-cotton-timberbanks-cattle, things like that. He liked to play cowboy, too. When he did, he was shod in boots with his initials engraved on them. And a cowboy shirt trimmed with gold. And the collars edged with platinum. And two pistols, gold-crusted, in hol. sters hung with jewels. And fistfulls of silver dollars in. his jeans. He surely was fond of those cartwheels. He used to give ’em away 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-15-20-25 just like that. It got so they called him “Silver Dollar” West. He liked the name. But once when a magazine kidded him he got mad and stuffed his pockets with peanuts instead of round dollars. Once when playing cop, he and a Houston policeman set out to trap a burglar. The policeman was wounded in. the fussin the shoulder by a shotgun blast, in the foot by a pistol slug. The burglar, when they’d caught him which they didwasn’t armed. Cops were fond of Jim West. He worked with their associations and gave them awards. Texas Ranger Eddie Oliver said Jim “was a good man . . . who’d do anything for an officer who was on the square,” and “the girls at the switchboard cried when the news came in Jim was dead.” Jim didn’t trust anybody but LEGALS NOTICE OF INTENTION TO INCORPORATE TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Notice is hereby given that Dean E.
