And that's where Kim Weiss, 5, will be -r with his father on Christmas Eve and his mother on Christmas Day. San Francisco Judge Joseph Karesh yesterday solved the parental dispute of who should have Kira for Christmas. The boy lives with his mother, Mrs. Margaret Denver, at Pacific Palisades in the Los Angeles area. She is now the wife of Robert Denver, who plays Maynard Krebs on TV's Dobie Gillis program. But according to the custody terms her ex-husband, Kim's father, Sol S. Weiss, San Francisco owner of Fantasy Records, was to have him this Christmas. Mrs. Denver came to court with her attorney, Murray Chotiner, former campaign associate of Richard Nixon, to say that it would emotionally upset the boy to be away from his home and mother at Christmas. Judge Karesh suggested that Weiss go down to the Denver home this weekend and get Kim for a holiday vacation visit to San Francisco. "He can spend Christmas Eve with you, then his, mother can come and get him on Christmas Qay and take him home," the judge said. Next year it will work in reverse. Agreed.

He scratched his head and jerked his mouth sideways and screwed up his eyes. Everyone could see he' was thinking. The men stood about waiting until finally Mr. Shnoo said, "I've got it!" He ordered the men to a huge hole in the floor of the elephant's cage. The edge of the holeame right to Henrietta's middle. He, -legs hung over the side. Mr. Shnoo got some wide planks and laid them in the hole so they slanted down the" side like a big bamboo slide. Now Mr. Shnoo had all the men line up behind the elephant and he cried, "One, two; three-; push!" They gave a mighty push and over Henrietta went, sliding down the planks to land on her feet in the bottom of the hole. 'Hooray shouted the men. But Mr, Shnoo was filled with dismay. He stared down at Henrietta. He thought, "Sne's on her feet but how will we get her out of the hole?" In truth, Henrietta was as bdd off as before. To make matters worse, the poor elephant was now very upset about the whole thing. She stood unhappily at the bottom of the hole and refused to look at Mr. Shnoo or take any food or do anything she was told. Elephants have very tender feelings and Mr. bhnoo was over her experience unless he did something quickly. He thought, 'ThefeTThfyne thing left for me to do." And, much as he hated to, he had to do it for Henrietta. He went behind the door He stood his head and shut his eyes and wiggled his toes and said, "Selbuttrt Gnippop!" three times. He was hardly back on his feet before Santa was there. "I was all ready to come, said Santa, "For I have been thinking there are mysterious things happening at this zoo and this time 1m staying until the mystery is solved." "But first, how shall we get Henrietta out of the hole?" "Easy," said Santa. "Build a ramp out of the hole and Henrietta can walk out." This seemed so simple a solution, Mr. bnnoo was ashamed he had not thought of it himself. He set the men work digging a ramp wmcn made a long gentle slope into the hole. But when it was done Henrietta stared at it and re fused to move. The men could neither push her nor pull her out Santa said, "I have some thing in my bag I think will do the trick." He reached in the bag he carried slung over his shoulder and pulled out four gigantic elephant skates. He went down the ramp and fas tened a skate on each of Hen netta feet. He put rone around her waist and took the end of the rope to the top of the ramp. Then all the men pulled on the rope and swoosh! the astonished Henrietta shot to the top of the ramp Now a surprising thing hap pened. Henrietta was so fasci nated by the strange things on her feet that she skated all over the great animal house. She would not let the skates be taken off. When jshe was back her cage and the hole filled up she skated from wall to wall and back again, She trumpeted long and joyously through her trunk and rose on her hind legs and skated round -mmH Never had anyone seen so remarkable a sight!
