TEN TIME CAGEBREAKER:
Raccoon Emerges As New Houdini
By HAROLD BRITZ
To the celebrated jailbreakers of
history--the Count of Monte Cris-
to, Jesse James and John Dillin-
Fingers, the masked denizen of
the N. University-Washteaaw area
is a raccoon, who at various times
is housed at the University Mu-
seum's animal 'house-at various
times because Fingers is a cagey
guy-or rather an uncagey guy.
IN THE PAST six months, Fin-
gers has escaped from 3is con-
finement no less than' ten tinec.
This constitutes a modern record,
according to museum officaWS.
Originally a gift from Barton
Hills schoolboy who captured
him in the hills around Ann Ar-
bor, Fingers has gained a repu-
tation around the museum as a
but mischievious rascal.
He has occupied three different
cages, including the old wolverines
cage and has escaped from each
on numerous occasions.
THOUGH NEVER caught in the
act, H. G. Dowling, museum assis-
tant in charge of the animal house,
theorizes that Fingers finds small
holes, the type that are usually
unobserved by less clever animals.
These holes get the going over
from the light-fingered friend. The
His expeditions, usually noc-
turnal, are generally harmless
and seldom does he stray from
the Museum grounds. But once,
on one of his tours, he discovered
a large basket of eggs, ready for
distribution at the zoo.
Eggs being the favorite food of
the raccoon, Fingers made short
work of them, and in the process
changed his color to a brilliant

psychiatric Institute, has been

ANOTHER- TIME, as the mu- around the outside of the museum
seum was being opened in the wing, cozily sleeping in a card-
morning, Fingers was the first visi- board box.
Fingers is the fifth of the Uni-
versity Museum's raccoons. But
he holds the distinction of being
the only one of these to ever es-
cape. When caught, he offers very
little resistance, especially when
tempted with an egg. He readily
goes back into a cage, apparently
to dream up new methods of es-

found on the ledge which runs an old story around here."
The 'Ensian has set Nov. 3 as
the deadline for making senior and
graduate picture appointments.
Only 2500 students have signed
up this year as comparable to 3200
last year at this date, Sales Mana-
ger Bill Osterman said. "There-
fore, those who run in at the last
minute and expect to have their
pictures taken may be disappoint-
ed," he warned.
"As it is now," Osterman con-
tinued, "we've had to double up
on appointments so that we could
get everyone in."
Appointments may be made by
phoning 2-6482 or by appearing
in person at the 'Ensian office in
the Student Publications Bldg.
