B y JOHN WEYLAND ' .'MOSCOW W^-A panda named Chi-Chi arrived in Moscow Friday from London to get married to a panda named An-An. They are the only two giant pandas in captivity outside the bamboo curtain and by a stroke of good fortune, Chf-Chi is a female and An-An a male. x .Tfw wedding won't take plac* for a time since manmade rules require Chi-Chi to spend 20 to 30 days in quar- ' antipe. After that, she'll move ; in next door to An-An for a "period of courting.

There was a arge crowd of humans on and, though, including a So- iet delegation, many repre- entatives from the British Imbassy and quite a. delega- ioh of reporters. the romance of Chi-Chi and An-An has caught the fancy f even the staid Soviet press, vhich usually sticks to pic- ures of tractors and stories more noted for statistics than mman interest. Vechemaya tfoskva (Evening Moscow) devoted a long story to the af- ! air, complete with pictures of :he bethrothed. CHI-CHI and An-An never lave known love. The experts fear that if they are thrown together without a preliminary get-acquainted period, heir emotional wires might ;et crossed. Then, instead of romance, the first meeting c o u l d produce blows and loodshed. The coming "in a r r i a'g e," alas, is doomed to end unhap )ily, even if it is love at first sight and a perfect match.

The quasi-paet who made hash out of Lauretta's aria from "Gianni Schicchi," (any lyric that starts out, "Oh, adored beloved," has already gone loo far), is in the same class. * * * * AND AS FOR a Swingle- type bop realization of the C minor Prelude from Book One of "Das Wohltemperierte It . featured, besides the Klavier," it's a good, if not :hree months.

Ford Weds TV -Actress March 27 HOLLYWOOD ( C N S ) -- ctor Glenn Ford will marry c t r e s s Kathryn Hays at talkative Waring and an efficient band of musicians, 15 vocalists, all seemingly capable of performing solo chores iri a limited number of styles. SOME OF THE singers are under 20, some of them veter ans of many seasons' touring. Whatever their backgrounds, they all project vitality and self-assurance. What they really sound like, or what the instrumentalists sound like, we cannot tell. A battery of microphones and sound e q u i p m e n t strewn about the stage and operating full time, obscured our sense of aural perspective. Worse than that, it assaulted our ears for over two hours with more sound than we find pleasant, more loudness than 'we think necessary. The first portion, entitled "The Magic of Music," and comprising over 10 songs, all midde-aged and familiar, like Waring .himself, was predictable and pleasant. * * * THE SECOND, a parody of original, idea, but should be done by a musicaian, and performed by singers at home in ·»th styles. Waring's singers are at home in neither. Two fleet-fingered instrumentalists contributed flashy solos during the program: Bobby Day, who plays banjo and al least six other instruments, and Donna Anderson, whose specialty looks like an accordion but plugs in like an electric organ. Miss Anderson seemed to be the only member of the company willing to turn her volume control down as well as up. Showtimes ,,ia -Raldtn," 11:3?,. 6:2), I'll Take SwccJen." 2:07, 7:W, 1, 5:«, 10:30.
