TWO BRONZE INDIAN RHINOS PLACED AT BIOLOGICAL LABS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two three-ton bronze statues of the Indian rhinoceros, the work of Boston sculptress Ratherine W. Lane, were put in place on pedestals on either side of the main door of the Biological Laboratories Saturday.

Six feet high and thirteen feet from horn to tail, the models are worthy rivals in size for the Yard's Chinese dragon. It is reliably reported that they are lady rhinoceri, but they are not twins, since they were designed and cast separately.

Selected for being the nearest modern relative of the dinosaur, one of the 250 extant Indian rhinos was cornered by Miss Lane in the Bronx Zoo. She first made a six-inch job, then a two-foot, then a four-foot, and finally a life-size. She was dissuaded from going on up the scale.
