Sanderlin "complained of illness'

DOGS OR COYOTES?
Puppies Interrupt Scientists'
Work at University Museum
Three very young and extremely
lively puppies have interrupted the
work of busy research scientists in
the University Museums Building.
The pups, two jemales and one
male, were presented to Ottawa
conservation officers by a farmer who
claimed they were coyotes and asked
a bounty on them. Although he said
he had dug them out of a den, there
was some doubt of his story because,
according to Prof. William H. Burt,
Curator of Mammals in the Museum
of Zoology, the animals resemb'e dogs
more closely than coyotes.
Brought in last month, the puppies,
now eight weeks old, are tame and
friendly. Dr. Burt said, "We will
have to wait perhaps six months be-
fore we can determine whether or
not they are coyote-dog crosses. By
that time their fur will change. Now,
white markings on their light brown
coats and ears, which do not stand
up, indicate that they are probably
dogs. An adult female brought in at
the same time and thought to be
the mother, appeared to be a cross
of coyote and wild dog."
Dr. Burt added that war workers
at Willow Run often brought pets
from home and left them here when
they returned. These pets became
feral, or wild, dogs which have been
found in woods and fields. He saidl
they are not as fierce as coyotes but
are far worse threats as sheep kill-
In the meantime, the puppies are
Twenty years of experimentation
have revealed that blood pressure is
regulated by the reflex action of
strategically located nerve endings
which act upon the central nervous
system, according to a statement
made here yesterday by Dr. Corneille
Heymans, of the University of Ghent,
Dr. Heymans spoke on "The Regu-
lation of Blood Pressure: Theoretical
and Practical Aspects."
"It is of value in clinical mediciine
to know how blood pressure normally
is regulated," he said, "so that when
a patient suffers from improper
blood pressure a treatment can be
Dr. Heymans also said that it has
been found that the chemical con-
stitution of the blood may act upon
certain nerve endings sensitive to
chemical action to regulate blood
pressure. It was formerly believed that
the regulation of blood pressure oc-
curred by means of direct influence
of the blood pressure on the central
nervous system, he said.
