Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Agile mind keeps volunteers busy Witticist continues fight for animals CLEVELAND AMORY By CLIVE LAWRANCE Christian Science Monitor NEW N.Y. The remarkable thing about witticist Cleveland Amory is that he has retained his sense of humor after 20 years of deep involvement in the fight against cruelty to animals. Mr. Amory's indignation at cruelty to animals was first inflamed more than 20 years ago by the gory spectacle of a bullfight. He joined a number of humane societies and then formed his Fund for which has led most of the recent fights against animal cruelty It was the first to use television to combat clubbing of baby sport hunting and trapping with leghold traps The fund is concerned with the abuse of animals anywhere in the from implementation of ocean mammal protection to neutering and spaying of pets to control the rampant populations in U.S. cities Mr. Amory thinks the most urgent problem in animal welfare today is birth control Millions of unwanted dogs and cats are put to death every year Consequently the fund has supported the growth of inexpensive spay clinics while encouraging research into other methods of birth control. The fund has more than sometimes called the Army of the Kind. Its most potent weapon in the fight on behalf of animals is says Mr. Amory the fund's most important function is as information and education agency But this does not preclude direct action Three years for the fund formed a kind of corps for called PUP up At that time the coyote was being poisoned on a vast scale. Trained persons would watch out for poisoned bait during ramps through the countryside. They would pick it up and hand it back to government officers with a you dropped message The fund played a key role in President Nixon's subsequent ban on predator poisoning on public lands The fund recently threatened to bring about the arrest of an entire zoo staff at the Audubon Park Zoo in New Orleans for alleged violations of the Expanded Animal Welfare Act of 1970 Under this kind of pressure the Audubon Park Commission announced the appointment of a new director and a improvement program Today the fund absorbs most of Mr Amory's energy in and picketing for animals. But he still finds time to write reviews for TV a column for Saturday and to play chess is in the class just below a Talking with Mr. Amory is like talking with five persons at once. This is not only because of his wide interest and enormously agile mind but because he will suddenly swivel around and consult one of his fund volunteers For at one point he shouted. what sport do I like From an adjoining office floated the voice of Marion his like minds are not as full as mine That's why they he says deadpan. am a terrific sports he adds. like sports people better than any other kind of people His fnends say he drives a golf ball as far as Arnold Palmer can. He likes the but is a trifle unsure of its truth. He states without modesty or arrogance that he can drive 300 yards. Mr. Amory's first article for Saturday Evening where he started after was a satirical look at Groton one of the most snobbish in the country at that time. He was subsequently asked to write a book on the most influential families in Boston Called The Proper it appeared in and still is widely read and enjoyed. Other books have followed Ever Mr. Amory has been writing more or less or wittily The exceptions are some of his animal pieces. animal he the sense of fun going out of his eyes so ghastly you can't be witty about them. yes even bitterly ironic but never The Amorys have two male huskies are remarkably well- behaved animals in every Mr. Amory says. He pays tribute to his for this. has a great love and understanding of In his office animal photographs fill almost all the wall space. Some are some grand But the thing that stirs the visitor and explains without words why Cleveland Amory is m the fight against animal is a sculptured black bull He is an engine of power and grace. His black coat shines and there's a nobility in the arch of his neck and turn of head He is not but seems as if betrayed He will soon lie dead in the dust of the bullring.
