Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THI LE1HBRID5I HEKAID Chi-Chi is gone forever LONDON (AP) Uie London Zoo's cuddly giant panda who disappointed the world's incurable romantics by twite refusing to mats with An-An. the Moscow Zoo's giant male panda, died today, an old maid of 15. "She died peacefully in her sleep at about a zoo spokesman said. Holy poly black and while Chi-Chi, who looked like a giant Teddy bear, had de-lighled children from all over Hie world as one of the London Zoo's top altractions. At the time of her intended marriag, she and An-An were the only giant pandas in captivity outside Communist China and North Korea. But efforts to arrange a match hi Moscow In 1966 and here in 1969 failed. Chi-Chi rarely showed more interest in An-An than an occasional yawn. When he tried to give her a Russian bear hug she slapped his face, went back to munching her bamboo shoots and that was that. Experts finally concluded that Chi-Chi already was over the hill at nine, middle age for a panda, when she got her first look at An-An. Chi-Chi, whose name meant "mischievous little was 15 years and nine months old. Giant pandas rarely live beyond 16 and "we think she just died of old the zoo spokesman said. A post-mortem will be conducted and the British Museum then expects to have the body stuffed for show at Its Natural History Museum. Chi-Chi was captured in the mountains of western China In 1957, when she was only a few months old. AnAn was the first giant panda she had seen since she was taken from her lolurday, July 22, Govt. in 6is not i EDMONTON (CP) Auto Insurance costs can reduced by safer driving and fewer accidents, not by government-run Insurance, Jim Knoll, vice-president of the Insurance AgenLs Association of Alberta, said Friday.

Mr. Knoll was responding to federal Justice Minister Otto Lang who has said he favors replacing private auto insurance companies with no-fault government run insurance plans In each province. Mr. Lang was quoted recently as saying the failure of mswer' vindal governments to reform automobile insurance is a "disgrace." "I agree with this, but no-fault insurance Is not the said Mr. Knoll.

Interviewed by The Herald's outdoors editor, JOB Balla, he said: "Of course, I'm not sure where our bigger problem is with the bears or with the curious people who just have to come out to see the bears from up close." The bruins have sc far confined themselves to the flat-ands along the mountain valleys around Colcman, Blair-more and Bellevue. The fish and wildlife officers are using tranquillzer guru to live trap the bears, then trans port them into back country to higher elevations. It's not known what's causing the sudden influx of bears Somerville said. He said "i1 could be a shortage, or poor crop of berries. Or an in creased number of seismic and drilling crews throughout the region may be leaving behinc more loose garbage." One of the newest problem areas is around AUyson Creek dam and park where a sow am two cubs have taken over. The officers have made the brooc a prime project. "We can't shoot or destroy them in the towns, >o we have to live trap them and move back to high Mr Somerville said.
