Primate Nooz takes great pleasure in announcing its selection
as one of the finalists in the competition for the prestigious Scopes
Primatology Prize, given each year to that publication which has
excelled in informing the public about primate issues and contributed
in a major way to habitat conservation. The other finalists
are The British Royal Museum Journal of the Cercopithecinae,
Tasmania Nature Weekly, and The Borneo Bulletin.
The prize is awarded by the Foundation for the Preservation of Primates
and Other Quadrupeds, and the final selection will take place later
this spring at the annual conference of the Singapore Simian Society
to be held as it is every year in Singapore.
The Nooz would also like to take this opportunity to state
that its senior editorial staff has not by any means lost confidence
in the ability of West Coast Correspon-dent Mr. Christopher Shaw,
just because his new format idea was a total and unmitigated disaster.
Publisher Arnett Putney, III and executive editor Widen Lundale,
Jr. are eagerly looking forward to working closely with him in the
not very distant future.
Finally, the Nooz wishes to clarify its position with regard
to the advertisement placed by Field Reporter Eric Scotmeister Fleiglehaus.
It is not true that our automotive department has verified
the roadworthiness of the vehicle he is attempting to unload, and
we suspect that it has a few problems.

Used car for sale. Has held up surprisingly
intact despite rigorous trips to Gabon, Borneo, Tasmania,
Bali-Bali, the Amazon and Madagascar. Everything has
been replaced at least once, most things several times. The
Nooz's automotive department has checked it over and
vouches for its reliability. Many good miles and lots
of field trips left in it. Contact E. Fleiglehaus, c/o
Primate Nooz, Hellmouth, AZ. I really need to
sell it, so call soon.
Would you like a fifth limb? Sound crazy?
Do you envy those New World types with their fancy-dancy prehensile
tails? Now you too can have a prehensile tail with our
new Tail Helper, the battery-operated mechanical prosthesis
that attaches directly and almost painlessly to your own tail.
In just a couple of short weeks you'll be hanging by
your tail, freeing up your hands and feet for more important
things. See a free demo at Hellmouth Small Appliance
Repair. Also available with special waist harness straps for
apes. Call today, or tomorrow.
Habitat cluttered with trees? Choked with nasty toxic
vines? Crisscrossed with creeks? Swamped with
swamps? I'll come out and design a habitat for any species,
and I don't care if I have to use concrete trees to do it.
You won't either. The main thing is that your
habitat will be a lot easier to clean. Rates by the
hectare. Nick's Habitat Design, 3rd Ave. and Pine St.,

spend all weekend. It's going to be great!

As far as most
people are concerned, Badongo-Gazimbi begins and ends with a single
commercial product, the gorogo bean. This lowly legume has
fueled the economy of the country for generations, providing sustenance
for a tired population and much needed foreign exchange. But
there is a lot more to Badongo-Gazimbi, from the old, decaying Dutch
capital of Adudu in the north to muddy Lake Badongo in the south.
There is the silvertail grass moth, from which is made almost the
entire world's supply of moth-wing coats. There is the beautiful
and little-understood monkey dance which the natives apparently
engage in every year when the ground becomes parched and hot. And,
of course, there also is the occasional ancient scroll to be found,
such as the one discovered last year by Professor Miedzyrzecz von
Uh oh..... WATCH
OUT! IT'S SWINGING AROUND! TURN IT OFF! Whew,
that was a close call! I guess maybe the boys down at Small
Appliance Repair should take another look at it. Anyhow, next
time we'll try to light up another interesting place for you, but
for now this is Bill Measely. Ciao.
