William Henry Buck, 80, of 1046 Capitol, would stake his pioneer boots on the fact that life in "the good old days" was definitely more
romantic, more fun and more sincere than anything offered nowadays. Beautiful Setting Picture the beautiful setting of his youth here in
the west-rolling hills, waving grain fields, friendly, uncrowded neighborhoods, romantic sunsets and a snappy buggy and beautiful team
standing nearby to carry him to the home of his demure sweetheart. "What could be more appealing " Mr. Buck asked. "I would exchange
every automobile made for a trim team of horses. I might lag a littlej behind the rest of the world and i might get killed in the rush, but it'
is a sure thing that I wouldn't be,__ killing anybody else. A person's! life isn't worth two cents.
