Bird Lovers Beard the Lion by Belling the Cats CRESSKILL. N. J., Oct. 17. —Once upon a time, all the mice got together and decided to hang a bell on the cat. The bell would llnlde when tin cat. crept up on them and they would be forewarned. All the mice thought this was a great idea. They applauded and whistled and'stamped their feet and cheered, then a mouse asked "Who will put the bell on the caU" Nobody answered. But In Cresskill, the old fairy tale has come true for the mice. Cuts have to wear not one Iwll. but three. Of course, the ordinance is designed to protect birds, not mice. And it has stirred up a medium- sized controversy between cat lovers and bircl lovers. The bird lovers claim the household cats cause tremendou* carnage among song birds. The c»t fancier* don't like th« ordinance, mainly because It also •nt.ills «. »2-per-year license fee for all pet feline*. The measure, passed here by the borough council last April, Is based on one adopted in nearby Tenally. N.J., lo years ago, Why three bells? The reasoning Is that cats, being pretty clever when It comes to matching birds or mice, would learn how to move around without tinkling If they had one bell around their necks. "But with three bells, a cat's got IIM paws full," a borough official said. . , .
