MFC (MR) STMlf PnMM 91 ImNt ,; Pwvii B< inp 13th Star Color Show: Marlneland (Flo.) Porpoises go through their show at Marineland, in this photo a lively female has outjumped a Fla. ( original of America's major outdoor aquariums, big male and seized the fish. Beneath her the where the editor, Alex. H. Washburn, made these male registers low-level disgust. 35mm, Kodachromes 10 years ago. This was a brand new added act when the editor saw it back in the 1950s. Marineland installed a trained porpoise Flippy as the star of a new exhibition pool constructed after World War II. w . A . ... .. A . UAI . ^ Picture shows Flippy crashing through the paper shield of a suspended hoop. Behind and above •••^^MB^P^M^HB^^B*^^""^^^^^' ' the porpoise is a boom with a dangling rope. In a companion act Flippy leaps and pulls the rope, ring* ing a bell. Then he gets the payoff-a fish. Porpoises are smart. Sometimes Flippy demands pay* ment both before and after the act. Marineland has a quaint custom: When a honey- for it. So perfect is a 200-pound porpoise's con- decision: Two porpoises jump sea swimming at 45 miles an hour. In the exhibition tank they pick up speed underwater and then shoot is high is 20 feet in the air. The U.S. Navy has clocked porpoises in the open STOpec**- Ho-hum-another porpoise, another jump, another fish. Porpoises aren't fish, of course; they are warm-blooded mammals, giving birth to their young, and requiring air just like other animals- they can stay underwater only about a minute at a time. They look like miniature whales, to which they are related.

Up on the platform with the trainer is a pelican, a fish-eating bird with an enormous appetite. Any time the trainer gives the pelican as much as one fish all the porpoises bark in protest. This Color Show was produced entirely by The Star's staff with the exception of the de velopment of the original Kodachrome camera film, a restricted laboratory operation.
