Takes Strange 'Trip'

-Associated Press Phot.
Sir Joseph Bracroft (above),
University of Cambridge physiol-
ogy professor, told an audience at
Yale University, New Haven, of
freezing himself into the border-
land of insanity.

sinister swish, and "Pfsst! Hisss!"
Glancing down, he leaped back so

After a few tense moments, a wom-
in student came into the hall, and
ie chivalrously pointed out the snake

'lame, but it was clearly in a bad
mood, for it also spit at her. TheF0
calm you1ig lady explained that it was
only a harmless corn snake, and real-

called a male member of her class to
restore the snake to its cage.
