CALL SAVES CUB:

Museum Zoo Welcomes New Addition

By .RUPERT┬░CUTLER

. :
3

A well-timed phone call by Prof.
Earl C. O'Roke of the wildlife
management department. of the
School of Natural Resources sav-
ed the life of a black bear cub,
permitting it to become the most
recent addition to the museum zoo.
Found by a local farmer who
took it from an abandoned trap
in the Upper Peninsula -the cub
was taken home for a pet. Then
conservation officer Don Boyer
confiscated the cub because it is
illegal to keep wild animals in cap-
tivity without special permission.
* *; *
HAVING no way to take care
of the animal, Boyer brought it to
the University to be humanely
killed and used for scientific pur-
poses.'
But Prof. O'Roke thought that
the bear's life should be spared,
if possible, and called prefect of
museum exhibits Irving G. Rei-
mann, to see if a place could be
found for it in the zoo. A cage
was available, and the cub was
given a reprieve and a home too.
On returning from his Colorado
.honeymoon following a summer
spent in Alaska, animal caretaker
Stewart Lowther was surprised to
sand the cub among his charges,
'but was happy because, as he says,
"The bears are the funniest crit-
ters here."
Lowther says that the cub,
which he has named "Tootles,",
is shy and suspicious of strang-
ers, staying in its "doghouse"
except when eating foot placed
near the outside fence.
"Tootles" is friendly with him,
however, and has learned to "talk"
when it wants to eat something
special, such as raisins out of the
caretaker's hand.
-The food the museum supplies
its hungry cub includes eggs, car-
rots, apples, lettuce, bread, milk
and dogfood.

Politeness pays, but it is not
always the best policy after an
automobile accident, Glenn R.
Winters, secretary of the American
Judicature Society, warned here
last night.
"OH, I'M SORRY-it was all my
fault' may be a gracious thing to
say when you've spilled the gravy
on your hostess' tablecloth, or
stepped on your dancing partner's
toe," Winters said, "but don't say
it when you get out of your car
after an accident, no matter how
wrong you think you were."
"Even if you were in the
wrong, the other party may have
been guilty of contributory neg-
ligence," he continued. "A mo-
ment of extreme excitement and
agitation is no time to try to
make a fair evaluation of liabil-
ity.
"Any admission you make in the
presence of a witness is pretty sure
to be held against you. Better not
talk about it at a1l-and that in-
cludes accusing the other fellow,
too."
* * *
TURNING to other suggestions
for "legal first aid," Winters pro-
posed four rules for keeping out of
legal trouble:
U Geologists
Attend Session
Eleven members of the Univer-
sity geology department have re-
turned from Toronto where they
attended the annual conference of
the Geological Society of Ameri-
ca.
Headed by Prof. Edwin Goddard,
the group included Prof. George
Ehlers, Prof. Claude Hibbard, Prof.
Robert Kesling, Prof. John Dorr,
Prof. James Zumberge, Prof. Ken-
neth Landes, Prof. Frederick Tur-
neaure, and Louis Briggs of the
department.
Colloqu um Today
F. Graham Smith of England
will speak at an astronomical col-
loquium at 4:15 p.m. today in the
Observatory on "Some Recent Re-
searches on Radio Astronomy."

1) Be careful what you sign.
2) Don't draft your own legal
papers.
3) Don't get legal advice from
somebody who isn't a lawyer.
4) Engage your lawyer at the
start, having a clear understand-
ing about fees at the outset.
"Embarrassment over discus-
sion of the cost of legal services
has kept too many people out of
law offices," he said, "and has
contributed to misunderstanding
between lawyers and clients."
Block M' Buttons
To Be Returned
Members of the t'ock "M" flash
card section have been asked to
bring their identification buttons
to the Michigan-Ohio State game
tomorrow for collection, according
to Block "M" chairman Stan Bohr-
er, '54.
There will be a 50 cent fine for
all buttons that are not turned in,
he said.
