Earl Coulter, the well known sign painter and erector, started out of Kane yesterday with a huge truckload of signs, advertising the wolf pack of the McCleery Wolf Pack Incorporated, which opened today near Coatesville, Penna. In addition to forty or more signs, such as are seen on the highways hereabout calling attention to the local pack, the load contained two signs 10x30 which will be placed in front of the wolf park. This painting was done by Mrs. Myrtle Jarensky, local artist, and a copy of a well known print which was popular twenty years ago, depicting a sledload of Russians driving three galloping horses and endeavoring to elude a fast on-coming wolf pack. A woman with an infant in her arms is driving the horses while a man is busy picking off the pursuing wolves with a rifle. In addition to this sign were two huge signs, painted by Mrs. Jarensky, Little Red Riding Hood's encounter with the Wolf. The latter signs are to be placed within a few miles approach of the park. Eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Western New Jersey will be posted with the wolf park signs.
