Ann Arbor Couple Adopts Typo

Typo has a home.
Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Barry,
of 1225 Ferdon Road, Ann Arbor,
wrote finish to the near-tragic story
of The Daily's adopted dog yester-
day when they picked the six weeks-
old female puppy from among all
others in the city pound.
Mr. Barry told Daily reporters that,
his interest was aroused by the tear'-
ful Daily story yesterday that re-
vealed Typo's relegation to the
pound, and that his choice had been
made because Typo seemed just as
"cute" and "intelligent" as we of
the staff had announced.
Two things, however, slightly

piqued staff members about the se-
lection, and that was that the Bar-
ry's intend to change Typographical
Error's name to something more
suitable to a house pet, and also
that Typo was reported to be very
happy and not crying for her old
home at all. Mr. Barry did promise,
however, to bring the pup to visit
the publications building occasion-
A sincere vote of thanks goes to
the young Barry couple -- and we
wish them and our former heart-
beat a very Merry Christmas and a
long life together!
