^..Galesburfl.^ til. Wednesday, May 1671,973 | Doggone! \Pets Enroll » AiVniversity By DONALD THORNTON DAVIS, Calif. (UPI) - The registration roster at the University of California at Davis includes not only students, but 164 dogs, nine cats and one raccoon. Recognized as the most "dog- liberal" school in the West, UC Davis allows its students to bring their pooches on campus, live in dormitories with them, and attend classes, if their | professors agree. i The dog problem at Davis-" spawned when the first longhaired, barefoot student made traveling through campus with a dog at his side fashionable- caused months of debate between pet owners and the school administration. But compromises were reached and for $1 students can officially register their pets with the campus environmental health and safety officer, Richard Holdstock. Holdstock provides dog tags, records the owner's name and address and photographs the pet for his files. If caught in the nearly daily roundup of strays on campus, the owner Is contacted and the pet avoids a trip to the pound. Holdstock said dogs are allowed on campus if they are on a leash or in voice control while in sight. His office picked up 145 stray dogs, five cats and one skunk last year and all but 23, which wen registered, went to the Yolo County pound. Dormitory residence for dogs or other pets came about because the old rule prohibiting them "was virtually impossible to enforce. Soon as you got some of the dogs out of the buildings, others would arrive," Holdstock said. Now a student can live with his dog if a majority of the residents of the dormitory in SHE MADE IT — Women's lib;finds Mrs. Muriel Wood, i55, doing business on the floor of the London Stock Exchange, the first of her sex in its more than 170-year history.

Nine floors at several dorr mitories allowed pets this year and Holdstock said 54 dogs and nine cats were official campus residents. Also on campus each Tuesday night is a class titled "companion pets," featuring lectures on anlmsl psychology and genet* let. University officials say If students know more about their pets and pet problems, the number of randomly bred strays should be reduced. "A lot of students have companion animals and t don't think they know as much as they should about their pets," said Dr. James Morris, who teaches the class. i Reaction to the class was much greater than, etptcled Morris said, with 1» student registering. .
