A frantic plea for more horned frogs was made by A. J. Slogeris, City Recreation Department supervisor, yesterday as the day of the special horned frog race at Washington Park arrived and he had only half enough frogs to supply the sponsors.
“We will pay 15 cents each for every horned frog in good condition. There is no restriction as to who brings them in. We are in need of frogs,” Slogeris said.
Frogs may be delivered to Slogeris at Washington Park until noon today, or to the basement of City Hall, where Fred Ellis will take them. Cash payment will be made.
“I have never seen such a shortage of the frogs,” Slogeris said.
