Frat Courv Feline Has Hard I im By BILL KING "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. "i i i.
