In response to the Dana Parsons column of Sept. 8 about Squawk, the unfortunate feline ("If There's a Moral to This Story, It Won't Help Squawk"), I would have to say that after almost 15 years of avidly watching the behavior of cats, both mine and others, I would be inclined to believe Mr. McIntyre's account of his cat's demise. Anyone who has ever watched a cat climb down a tree knows that no cat would ever jump from a 40-foot palm, no matter what the situation. Any cat-watcher knows that cats are intelligent animals who retreat to the safety of heights only when threatened.

Marieke Veltman's coaches wait with a calm curiosity to see how far she will be able to leap when the long jumper finally gets to concentrate on that one event, in a meet that includes other top jumpers. Most of the time, the UC Irvine junior is all over the track, moving efficiently from event to event, if not actually competing in two at once.

Ruth Wysocki's come-from-behind victory in the women's 1,500 meters highlighted the UC Irvine Track and Field Invitational Saturday at UC Irvine. Saturday's race was the fourth in Wysocki's comeback bid. She qualified for the '84 Olympics in the 800 and 1,500 but was suspended by the The Athletics Congress in fall of 1988 for participating in three unsanctioned meets in South Africa. After three years of appeals, her eligibility was reinstated Jan. 1.
