Doll Toelkcs, son of Dr. and Mrs. John Toclkcs, presented the baby felines to the kindergarten class Monday afternoon. DeU's mother helped with the presentation to the delight of all the youngsters there. The children and tigers played snd rolled in the grass. The t'gers, who in a fciv months will he pound carnivores, seemed l.ke large house cats. THE TWO FEMALE tigers, Sissy and Charlotte, are nine weeks old and weigh 16 pounds each. They were bom at the Abilene Zoo to a mother who would not accept the fact of motherhood and so the kittens were raised by hand. There were four kittens at birth, but two males died about six weeks ago. The two surviv- ing females are being cared for by Mrs. Toelkcs, whose husband is the zoo veterinarian. "I have aged about 23 years since we took the tigers to raise." Mrs. Toelkcs said in an interview Monday. "They are a lot of fun, but it is sort of like having twin babies in the house, and after five years of not having a baby in the house, it takes a lot of adjusting on my part."

They arc like any other small animal, they don't want to give up their milk for solid food. I am going to get the cats out in the back yard, and just me and them and the raw meat ivill have at it.'1 She said some zoo veterinarians fed tigers horse meat, but her husband did not think it was pure enough. He gives them a special food made for jungle cats. THE BENGALS will be full grown in about a year and will weigh right at 450 pounds at that time, according to Mrs. Toelkes. now. .they are playful and make'tnte pets.

Since Ihe snakes arc crawling this time of jrar, I'm wondering about treating snakebites. hfard spraying frcczonc on a bile will localize the poison and jou can drlie lo Ihe hospital without making Ihe X Incision that used lo be required. I've also hoard that just pul- ling a tourniquet on Ihe bite and loosen- ing it now and Ihcn on Ihe way lo Ihe hospital Is effective. Is this really true? Docs this keep (he poison from spread- ing? A. A local physician says cooling the area Is good because it slows circulalion and therefore slows the absorption of the poision. But he says ice packs are more effective than a spray product because (iron cooling is superficial cools only Ihe surface. He suggests the very lics.1 method is lo stay calm (important because excitement and motion increases blnod pumping through the area nnd venom absorption is Apply ice, fasten a tourniquet lonscly above the liiti1, rnake an X incision and apply suction t" draw out the poison, then get to the hospital.

The broadcast said that on the touchy problem of Formosa, also called Taiwan, Communist China said it "reaffirms that Taiwan is an inalienable part" of its territory and "Ihe Cana- dian government lakes note of this position."
