'Most Dangerous Animal' Sign and Mirror at Zoo Cause Men to Reflect Mothers Vigil ForWrongMan ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT ANT) CHRONICLE r.urs :5. 1363 Savings Interest Controls Sought By JOHN G. ROGERS Democrat and Chronicle Special Service NEW YORK Thousands of 'the most dangerous animals in the world' filed through the Great Apes House at the Bronx Zoo yesterday and most of them paused for a brief look into a mirror. They were people! Boys and girls, mostly, but some men and women. Right between the cage of Andy and Sandra, the orangutans, and that of Mambo, the lowland gorilla, this mirror was mounted on the wall. Across its face were bars so that the viewer saw his reflection as though he, too. were caged. And. underneath the grave reminderi in capital letters: "You are looking at the most dangerous animal in the world. It alone of all the animals that ever lived can exterminate (and has) entire species of animals. Now it has achieved the power to wipe out all life on earth." The adults who read this message put there recently by the zoo administration accept it as a bit of a jolt. "They take it the way we want them to," said Joseph A. Davis Jr., curator of mammals, 'it gets them to stop and think that, in a manner of speaking, they're worse than tigers or gorillas or rattlesnakes." A tour of observation in the Great Apes House yesterday largely confirmed this. Men and women read the words, contemplated their images, and walked on with thoughtful expressions. The children? That was something different. Here is a sampling f their remarks as they spelled out the sobering words: Who? Me?" Who savs I'm an animal?" "llsy, look at me, Hymie! I'm dangerous." Maw. when do we eat?" "I didn't come here to be insulted." "Joe, I always said you belong in a zoo." "What does exterminate mean?" "What is this? Some kind of a joke?" 'if I'm an animal, when do they feed me?" After the caption was explained to one little guy. he kept asking his father when they were going to remove the mirror so that he could see the most dangerous animal behind it. But. the prize had to go to a trio of teen-age boys in tight pants and those elaborate wavy hair arrangements. Either they couldn't read or they didn't see the message. The sight of the mirror, however, produced an almost instant reaction. They whipped out their combs and put their hair in shape, ending up w ith delicate pats with the palm of the hand and expressions of great admiration.
