NOKtHWtt! ARKANSAS TIMIS, fayenevilh, Arkonwrt, Mondoy, January 14, IWJ Kangaroo. The Whole Show As Publicity For Picture Is Turned Loose In Washington By EI CKEAOH Washinglon-WVTiM sorry," my wiffi said. "We must have a had connection. I thought for ;i m i n - ute you sairi you were pning in a party wlih a kangaroo." "Not with a kangaroo. For a kangaroo," I said. 'Oh," she said. "A parly for a kangaroo. That makes everything perfectly clear. Look, arc you feeling all right? You're nut feverish or anything? You haven't had a blow on the head?" So I explained thai sonic movie people, who have just finished shooting ft picture called "Kangaroo," had flown a couple of the heasls in from Australia. One kangaroo took to her bed a f t e r a few hours of Washington, but the Australian ambassador was giving a party for the other erne. "All this," my w i f e tiaul, "sounds a little giddy, even for this town. Go ahead, though. Try to get home early. And I don't want to h o a r ; an,v stories about your having to sit up with a sick kangaroo." Well, the party at Ihu Kmbassy was more fun than a barrel of kangaroos. This Percy Spender, the ambassador, is a ruddy, gusty type who set.-: out a f i n e b u f f e t . Turns out he's a great kangaroo fancier. Mrs. Spender can take kangaroos or leave them alone, but she let this one romp through her house with never a shudder. And Joe, the kangaroo, stole the show. He's the *onty kangaroo I ever met socially, but if they're n i l like him I w a n t one. He's greyish in color and about the size of a small kangaroo. He's as c u n n i n g as an Easter bunny, and tame, too. Didn't kick a single American. out there's a lot to learn, ton. "Wonderful animal:?!" boomed t h e ambassador. "Ought to sec them jump! Ten yards easily! Whole herds of them in the interior of Australia! It's a picture, by find, In see a whole herd j u m p - ing at once. Why, 1 remember one lime--" Just then his son John, \vho is Hi, burst in. He made a bee-line for Joe--and the kangaroo, who hud never seen him hi fore, greeted him lilie a long: lost brother. Talk about a boy and a dog--you should have seen John and Little Joe scamper through the embassy corridors. Joey fell on hi? face, finally. Resides, he had a tough schedule ahead of him--New York this weekend, then a tour of 3D or more U. S. and Canadian cities. Ro they covered him with a brown blanket and he took a long nap, right there on the rug. "Has it occurred to you," *ome- I body said, "that with Washington women a f r a i d to wear mink coals, on account of nil the scandals, there might be a brisk demand for coats made from kangaroo f u r ? " I rouldMiave sworn that, under his b l a n k e t , Joe the kangaroo trembled from head to foot. Mostly Joe wn.-c led around on a leash by a pretty A u s t r a l i a n model named Lnrclta North, an 1ft~'y ear-old who has been chosen "Miss Kangaroo," of all title.-:. She d i d n ' t - h a v e a n y t h i n g to do with Kangaroos-until snc" won the contest, but she learns fast.
