World War II veteran Clair Wallingford was in his Appenzell,
Pennsylvania, general store one afternoon when a man came in, bought
a soda and inquired about the distance to nearby Neola. He
apparently didn't like Wallingford's answer of 'five miles' because
he summarily reached inside his baggy clothing, declared he had a
.45-cal. handgun and demanded, "Give me your change box!"
Wallingford's response doubtless took the ne'er-do-well aback. He
produced a pistol of his own and said: "I got a .45, too. Who's
going to shoot first?" With that, the man fled. Wallingford, who
trailed after the man, quickly called the state police. "These
people don't scare me one bit," he later declared.
