This was reported today at the opening of a three-day meeting of the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) on the campus of Cornell University, one of the nation's centers ol biological research. "Instead of hopping like a normal rabbit, these rabbits have a shortness of upper limbs and a poor development of the hip and shoulder Joints which result in a peculiar undulating wavy type ot locomotion resembling that of the dachshund dog," the biologists were told by researchers P. B. Sawin and D. D. Crary of the Jackson Memorial Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Me.
