He wishes to shoot them, I wish to preserve them.' In his defense I must say he doesn't wake up on a weekend morning and say, "I'm going out to shoot squirrels for the sheer joy of the kill." He is a humane man and from his point of view he has ample provocation, he is indeed goaded to take gun in hand. The squirrels get into the bird feeders and eat up all the seed. This makes him' mad on two counts: the birds get less and the bills run up out of all proportion. I see his point, but like Hamlet, I am a very indecisive character. I love birds, I even like pigeons, J think they're beautiful, but I love the squirrels, too. Just because you are a squirrel I see no reason, why you shouldn't eat. Besides, perched on the edge of the feeders, their curved bushy tails twitching with pleasure, their furry paws holding the seeds which they gobble with delicate greediness, they _ look darling. It's the fur'that does it, I suspect. I'm a pushover for fur beasts. If it was some scaly, slithery creature at the seed, although he might be just as hungry, I personally' would give the order to fire. * * * * NOT EVERYBODY feels that way, however.

(er Dilivtiy \ mer in Djakarta, have a large lizard, a tokay who lives behind a picture in their drawing room and they are devoted to him. And Mrs. Johnson, the wife of our ambassador in Thailand, has a couple in the embassy with whom she is very chummy. They are called tokays because they make a noise which sounds exactly as though that was the word they are saying. The doctor, to bolster his anti-squirrelism, uses what I can but consider a specious argument. Not only, he says, does their eating at the feeders rob the birds, it weakens their own characters. He holds that by rights and by nature they should be busy all autumn harvesting acorns, of which we have an abundance, and that if they know they can count on us, the knowledge will undermine their independence. My spouse is not a fan of the welfare state, neither for man nor beast. With, of course, the exception of Thor, the Weimaraner who gets life handed to him on an emerald-studded gold platter and then we worry for fear something may be not quite to his liking. The Doc pretends to a certain severity, man-to- man stuff, "Don't wipe him off when he's wet, that kind of dog is supposed to get wet. Duck blinds, quail, for heaven's sake!" and, "No, he doesn't need any more meat, he had a big helping. If he's hungry, let him finish up the dog biscuits." The offhand vigorous attitude, but there have been moments--when he has not known I was in the room--when I have seen very gentle stroking of the lovely gray velvet head and remarks that sounded suspiciously like: "Who's a beauty doggie?" Yet such is the nature of the sweet beast, the four-legged one, that even our soggy attitude does not spoil him. * * * * AND WE H A V E our stern moments when threat is translated into action. One such occurred not long ago. This time a rat was at the bird feed and even my love of four-footed chums does not extend to rats in the house. The doctor took his gun. His is a steady hand and a straight eye. Anthony Oakley he. He d r e w a b e a d and squeezed the trigger. Neatest shot 1 ever saw. The rat didn't even keel over. He had been s i t t i n g on his haunches munching, live, and in a split second he w a s s i t t i n g o n h i s haunches, dead, t h e seed still in his raised p a w s . What a way to go! Would that we could all be so lucky. Just to stop breathing after a delicious mouth- · ful or to go quietly to sleep and never wake up. Probably, though, a certain amount of animalistic independence is a good idea provided the animals are in an environment where they can fend for themselves, the jungle and the veldt, for instance, or, in the case of cats, an alley near the fishmonger or a dairy barn. Probably the predatory instinct must be preserved to some extent if the species is to survive. Recently, there was a drawing in The New Yorker with, I thought, connotations that were q u i t e dreadful and heartbreaking. It showed two tigers hidden in reeds watching one of their fellows being herded into a great cape to be taken off to a zoo and one tiger was saying to the other, "It might not be such a bad life security- wise!"
