Has anyone got a spare wolver-
The University Museum of Na-
tural History has been looking for
one ever since "Intrepidus," its
former wolverine, died three years
ago, but nowadays wolverines are
pretty hard to acquire.

animal house at the Natural His-

team needed a mascot.

scheduled for 7:30 p.m. tomorrow

so Yost approached the museum
to seek quarters for his wolver-
Treppy was welcome at the ani-
mal house only on the condition
that he not be taken out to attend
any more football games. The ex-
c it e me nt, museum officials
thought, would be just too much
for the animal.
WITHIN TWO days after Trep-
py took up residence behind the
Zoology Museum, he was happy,
serene and friendly. So friendly
in fact that he began to feel the
need for more human companion-
He left abruptly.
Treppy led his captors-a merry
chase but was finally headed off
into a garage and caught by means.
of a fish seine and garbage can.
Treppy died three years ago and
since then, all efforts to get a new
wolverine have been in vain,

TV producers agree that sci-

trend in adventure stories. Since
