A pack of furry, feathery and scaly critters slithered, hopped and crawled into the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children on Tuesday. But the only squeals were those of delight that came from about 50 children staying at the charitable center for burn and accident victims who petted, hugged and tugged at the visitors from the Los Angeles Zoo.

Jim Murray winning the Pulitzer Prize for commentary is another deserved award for someone already at the top of his profession. When Murray first wrote for our North-South Shrine Game in 1962, he immediately made the public aware of his grasp of and interest in the situation at the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children. As long as there are crippled children, we won't run out of Shriners. Let us hope that we will never run out of the Jim Murrays of the world, either. M.R. (ROSIE)

Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children, a San Francisco landmark for 67 years, will close and move to a new, $65-million hospital in Sacramento in 1993. There's been no discussions about the future of the 48-bed facility on 4.7 acres in the Sunset District or how many of the 200 staff members might move to the state capital, a hospital spokesman said. Shriners officials said they saw no indication that the annual East-West Shrine college football game would be moved from Stanford University.
