Date: Wed, 20 Dec 1995 14:01:14 CST From: Joan Hall Subject: Re: Gutters DARE Vol III will have an entry for 'lead trough,' with variants 'lead,' 'lead-off trough,' and 'lead pipe." We have quotes from 1902 DN 2.238, 1904 DN 2.382, 1906 DN 3.120, 1907 DN 3.223, c1960 Wilson Collection, 1966 Dakin Dial. Vocab. Ohio R. Valley 2.59, 6 DARE Infs (4 from KY), and 1 TX inf from LAGS. We're labelling it "chiefly S Midl." Presumably these lead the water to the downspout. Joan Hall
