THE TROY RECORD, THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE 11, 1953 31 Bronx Man Finds Penguin On Doorstep ;Ntw : /York (UP)--A wayward penguin cooled off in the penguin pool at the Bronx yesterday, unmindful of the distress it caused an expectant father who found it on : his doorstep. Joseph Marano, a beer salesman. ·found the visitor from the frigid ·zone squatting by his front ,door when he returned to hi* home in the; Bronx Sunday night. Penguins are a rare sight, especially on .doorsteps in the Bronx. ;"I figured it was a. penguin because I'd seen them before on tele- floor REACH FOR THE Pine-Sol P u t ' l i t t l e i n T $ water.

"Get that, thing out of here," she commanded. Marano persuaded her they should let -the penguin spend the night although he. too, questioned whether .its presence was a good influence .considering his wife's condition. The penguin was consigned to the cellar. The penguin was not happy, Marano said, and spent most of the night protesting in syllables only penguins can pronounce. First thing the . next morning Marano drove it to the zoo. Experts at the zoo .identified the bird as a Humboldt penguin, a type native to the southwest coast of South America. A quick census at the penguin pond showed none of the zoo's 19 penguins was missing. "This is a real mystery," a zoo official said. "It must be somebody's .pet but not. many -people keep penguins as pets." ' Zoo officials : said if no one claims the -penguin it will be allowed to. join the zoo's resident colony.
