It was agreed that if the college pressed its demand for dogs and the board of works permitted them to receive dogs, legal action would be taken to stop the vivisection. For many months the Indianapolis Hu mane Society has been disposing of the unclaimed dogs at the pound. They are first held five days for re covery by their owners. If not claimed within that time they are turned over to the society which has been finding homes for them and destroying those whose condltlion made destruction necessary. As n result none of the dogs has been available for the use of the med ical sollege, a condition that has evoked considerable complaint from the directors of the college. A demand for dogs made at the pound today was met with the statement that there were no dogs available for vivisec tion purposes, and It is now proposed either to pprevent any dogs ever being available or for humane reason to stop the vivisection work at the college by prosecutions. $238,000,000 PAID TO U.
