Elephant Tries Out as Fireman If you want an elephant to fight 1 a fire with its built-in hose, you have to keep him hot and thirsty, Godfrey firemen learned this week. As an attention-getter, it was decided to have one of three elephants, now holding forth at Monticello Shopping Center, extinguish a small fire by spraying water with its trunk. He Was Dubious Arumai Singh, the elephant keeper, was dubious, contending the elephants wouldn't take readily to water unless they were hot and thirsty. He added that he'd keep them off water for several hours to induce such cooperation as he could. Monday a Godfrey fire truck was rolled to the shopping center, a can of water was provided and a small newspaper fire was set. The largest of three elephants was stationed a few feet from the fire, the fire truck and the container of water, but the pache- derm didn't take the hint. Wasn't Hot Enough "Anyway, it was a good idea," says Robert Sparlin, a member of the shopping center promotions committee. "An elephant will extinguish a fire, but it has to be baited with something. I've seen these elephants put out a cigarette with a foot, then eat the cigarette. So we thought . . ." Arumai Singh, too, said it was a good idea, but repeated that the elephant has to be hot and thirsty.
