Chimp Flops in Debut CALGARY Wv—-Joey is a bit of a disappointment at. the Calgary Zoo. A chimpanzee, Joey doesn't do any of the things chimpa ' are expected to do, and 100 officials think he's plain chump, not chimp. The three- year-old seem* to have a decided inferiority complex Since, his arrival last January, Jcey has fooled everybody. He won't be dressed up, drinic out of paper cups, or peel oranges. The only thing he's worn up to now is a slightly sarcastic expression. He was obtained from a Florida aoo and was supposed to be a trained chimp. Zoo officials believe the long train ride may have given him a sort of animal amnesia. But maybe he's a cynic at heart. Dr. j. W.
