Milton [Bud] Hunter, a Raleigh, N.C., music store employee,
saw through a window two men holding up a liquor store next door.
He got a revolver and started across the alley just as the holdup

on one of them. Raleigh Police Chief Tom Davis' letter of
commendation said, "We appreciate this splendid example of good
citizenship and initiative."
