Project. Eastland, Texas, May 1 (JP) —Hu­ manely inclined Eastland citizens ob­ tained a court order today against the sealing of a horned toad in the corner stone of the new court house and the toad, placed in the stone Saturday, was released, none the worse for its 48 hour entombment. Protests calling for the reptile’s release “out of respect for Christian­ ity and the humane citizenship of Texas,” moved the commissioners court to order the stone unsealed and the subject of the experiment liber­ ated. The tradition in this section that a Texas horned toad can live indefin­ itely without food, water or air was said to have been-proven here re­ cently when one w a s removed alive from the cornerstone of the old court house when it was torn down after a reputed entombment of 31 years. g . a p. th . ,™ v , i . e . ™ . .
