» »AM»A OAtY NfWS PAMPA, TEXAS (Wth YEAR Thursday, June 15, n<2 WORLD OF ANIMALS—"Put your head on my shoulder" could be the theme song of Cleveland Smith, general manager of World of Animals, the drive-through animal park at Mesquite, east of Dallas. At 31, Smith is one of the youngest men in the nation in his field, and often leaves his desk to tour the 550-acre wildlife preserve. World Of Animals Brings Africa To 'Your Car Door' DALLAS-Not only is World of Animals a new concept in conservation of the species, but there are new attitudes and new ideas to couple entertainment with education. Cleveland Smith, general manager of the 550-acre, drive-through animal park east of Dallas in Mesquite, is largely responsible for innovative trends. "Our new attitude is subtle," Smith says. "For example, we have 'guests' in the park, not •customers'. And rather than 'employes' we have 'hosts and hostesses'." "For that reason, most of our employes have a sincere desire to work with animals, to know them and to help them. That is making the change at World of Animals," he said. "They show they are interested in their Work, and the general public senses this." Also helping set World of Animals apart, Smith said, is its fine location. "We are remote. And so is Africa," Smith added. "At World of Animals you cannot feel that you are on the outskirts of major population centers. There are no heavy traffic arteries at our front door. There are the trees, meandering creeks and winding roads at our approaches. This feeling of remoteness does, of course, heighten the appeal to visitors. It is almost like being transported to Africa." One of this distinctive park's primary aims is conservation of the species, and Smith feels that this has been eminently successful. Animals propagating freely at World of Animals include the giant eland, lions, black buck antelope, baboon, chimpanzees, rhinoceros, zebra and ostrich. Acreage occupied by the park, just 4 miles south of Interstate Hwy. 20 on Lawson Rd. east of Dallas, was once a homestead site for Texas pioneers. And so, the transformation has gone full circle. World of Animals never closes, permitting visitors to tour the multi-million-dollar facilities from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in fall and winter, and until an hour before dark in spring and summer. Guests are encouraged to take photographs as deer and other tame animals roam through the park. The popular Safari Village, a walk-through area primarily designed for children, has monkeys, rare birds, baby lion cubs, antelope, cheetah, beautiful waterfowl and 200-pound turtles. Here, also, is a fast food service operation and a curio shop. The big attraction at World of Animals, of course, is the drive-through preserve, nine sections of wildlife that bring Africa to your car door. The opportunity is there for ideal observation and education. For safety purposes, World of Animals asks all guests to keep car windows rolled up. Convertibles are not allowed, but rental cars are available at the main entrance. Park rangers patrol each compound to be certain that no visitor takes an unnecessary risk.

Kingsmill 665-4231 Angela Visiting Harold Barrett Ford East Germany Marks llth Anniversary BERLIN (API-Negromill 'Ml Angela Davis told East Germans today the international rapport she had received was responsible for her acquittal on murder, kidnap and conspiracy charges. In an interview carried by East German radio and television, Miss Davis thanked East Germans for the thousands of letters she had received from them while she was in jail awaiting trial In San Jose, Calif. "There is no doubt that the tremendous and organiied movement for my freedom finally forced the well-known result, "she said. Her acquittal by an all-white jury on June 5, was not proof of the fairness of justice in the United States since every political activist can arbitrarily be charged with criminal acts, she charged. Asked about her future goals, Miss Davis said: "I dream of a socialistic world, of a world in which there is no war, no racism and no poverty. And as Lenin said: It is not enough just to dream. We must realize our dreams through appropriate deeds."
