Binti Balu and Summer Sales
An Associated Press brief concerning new gorilla baby for Binti is printed
below, along with a copy of the BB plaque designed by Bob Cook of Atlantic
Beach, Florida. The zoo returned the plaque to us because they didnít wish
to show favoritism to one of their inmates.
There is belated news from last yearís Dum-Dum in Colorado. Lydie Denier
accepted money for taped copies of her Tarzan-TV series, and then returned
to France. The original list has been lost, but the tapes have been found,
so if you paid for a DVD or VHS version of these TV shows, send us your
name and address and get your tapes delivered from Jerry OíHara, Danton
He is also handling sales of the new Tarzan Yell dolls seen pictured
in this issue. You can order the doll for $49.95 plus $6.95 for shipping
& handling by calling Jerry O'Hara at (909) 875-3296. (They are also
available for purchase through eBay.)
