"Odd Ball", an oddly'colored cat
with an "odd personality", was
made the victim of a cruel practi
cal joke Sunday night.
Mrs. Merle Fisher, Odd Ball's
mistress, said "that this was not the
first time that someone had mis
treated Odd Ball. On an earlier
date, some person or persons un
known had bathed the cat in kero
sene. Odd Ball had just recovered
from this incodent. when he was
again subjected to another incident
that was almost as bad.
Mrs. Fisher said that late Sun
day evening, she heard Odd Bali'c!
cries of pain, and went to see what
had happened to him. Three stu
dents were grouped around the
cat and it appeared they were
hurting him. Mrs. Fisher had pre
viously lost one cat in this man
ner, so she tried to get close
enough to identify the students.
The culprits saw her coming, and
after throwing Odd Ball into a mud
puddle, started to run. Sonny, the
t'g -of the household and Odd
Ball, protector, joined the chase.
lurs. Fisher followed the stu
dents across Columbia St. where
they split up. Two of the "jokers"
went down the alley beside the
Beta House, and the other in the
direction of Big Fraternity Court.
Mrs. Fisher a,.-ked several students
if they had seen anyone jiut come
in. As is usually the case, no one
had; so the three students got
away with out any punishment.
reprimand, or censure.
