We investigate the non-Fermi-liquid (NFL) behavior of the impurity Anderson model (IAM) with non-Kramers doublet ground state of the f2 configuration under the tetragonal crystalline electric field (CEF). The low energy spectrum is explained by a combination of the NFL and the local-Fermi-liquid parts which are independent with each other. The NFL part of the spectrum has the same form to that of two-channel-Kondo model (TCKM). We have a parameter range that the IAM shows the -InT divergence of the magnetic susceptibility together with the positive magneto resistance. We point out a possibility that the anomalous properties of UxTh1-x Ru2Si2 including the decreasing resistivity with decreasing temperature can be explained by the NFL scenario of the TCKM type. We also investigate an effect of the lowering of the crystal symmetry. It breaks the NFL behavior at around the temperature, δ/10, where δ is the orthorhombic CEF splitting. The NFL behavior is still expected above the temperature, δ/10.
