Anderson Daily Bulletin (Newspaper) - March 10, 1978, Anderson, Indiana Insect zoo wants crickets and katydids WASHINGTON (AP) — The government wants your crickets and katydids for its Insect Zoo, a fascinatingly crawly corner of the Smithsonian Institution that’s attracting visitors like ants to a Sunday School picnic. Got any live frangi-pani caterpillars, ambush bugs, silver-fish, tumblebugs, scorpions or giant centipedes? Uncle Sam wants them too. They’d all join the 5,000 or so other boarders at the unique zoo established in 1976 with financial help from five leading insecticide manufacturers. What does it offer the zoo-goer? You can listen to a background of canned bug calls. Hold a hornworm or hissing cockroach. Watch bombardier beetles and scorpions being fed. Or stroll among Plexiglas-covered exhibits showing insect development and habits. Although the birds are elsewhere ‘Up With People 9 Michael A. llrown Local media representatives have received preliminary details of the May 23 appearance in Anderson of the internationally-famous singing group, ‘‘Up With People.” The concert, in the Anderson High School gymnasium, is being sponsored by Anderson >. ewspapers, Inc., to raise money for the Isabel Harter House, ohown, from from left, are: John E, Scott, editor of The Anderson Herald; Joseph Deeley, ANI marketing director; David Jackson, editor of the Anderson Daily Bulletin; David Butler, manager of WHUT/WLHN; John Atkinson, WHBU manager, and Thomas McMahan, representing the Harter House.

KING Associated Press Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — On the tube, bearded Grizzly Adams is a mellow mountain man who doesn’t eat meat or wear animal skins. His best friend is a gentle bear named Ben. Most of the dialogue on NBC’s popular series, “The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams,” consists of pleasant chats between Adams and the critters. They appear to communicate quite successfully. So much for television’s Grizzly Adams. A century ago, the real life and times of James Capen “Grizzly” Adams sizzled with grisly death struggles with bears, wolves and other beasts. And Adams picked most of the fights. “That’s true,” says Charles E. Sellier Jr., creator and producer of the television series and its pilot movie. “In doing my research, I found that the original Adams probably hated animals.” Take it from ol’ Griz himself. Here’s a typical passage from his autobiography, “The Adventures of James Capen Adams,” which was compiled by San Francisco newspaperman Theodore Hittel in 1860 after a series of interviews with the famous mountain man: “The bear, as the ball slapped loudly in the fat of her breast, staggered and fell backwards, and began pawing and biting the ground...” After firing five more shots into the beast and stabbing her, he witnessed the following scene. “Again she endeavored to rise, Sale Calendar Sal..

Television's Grizzly Adams would rather flee his beloved woods for New York’s Hell’s Kitchen than commit such a dastardly deed. The real Grizzly gloried in his kill. “I was alone in the gorge,” boasted Adams, “and, as I looked upon the dead monster, I felt like Alexander sated with victory and wishing another foe to engage, wor thy of my prowess." Who is this vicious fiend and why did they make such a nice television show about him? According to biographer Richai c H. Dillon, Grizzly Adams was born in Medway, Mass., in 1812. He trained as a shoemaker, but eventually tired of the sedate life and headed west.
