Baby Polar Bear—Note Size With the Himalayan Bear August A Friendly Elephant Two Moose, Jock and Jinny Mr. Morse and Owl-Faced Monkey ABOVE PICTURES SHOW MR. MORSE IN VARIED ZOO SCENES GEORGE F. MORSE, Eminent Zoologist GEORGE F. MORSE, eminent zoologist, was for five years director of the Boston Zoological Park and the Boston Aquarium. He has been chosen to direct the building of the proposed Chicago Zoo and to assume charge of that institution after it has been completed. This is to be the largest zoo in the world. Mr. Morse is a noted authority on animals. His scientific knowledge of animals is quickened by his love and understanding of them, a comprehension which began with his childhood spent upon a backwoods New England farm. Mr. Morse was early identified with the Massachusetts Fish and Game Association; he was a member of the fish and game committee of the Massachusetts legislature, where he served with Calvin Coolidge; he was fish and game editor of the Boston Herald, and organizer and president of the Massachusetts Sportsmen's League. In addition to his extensive expeditions in this country, he has traveled through Europe studying zoological conditions there, and is the author of many interesting magazine and newspaper articles. During his years of investigation, Mr. Morse has made important discoveries, such as the secret of the birth of the kangaroo. He has made marked improvements in the care of wild animals in the captive state, notably of moose, caribou and other North American ruminants, which heretofore have lived but a short time in captivity. Lecture-Entertainment Mr. Morse has been secured to appear under the auspices of the Redpath Bureau and tell of the interesting phenomena of animal life which have come under his observation. He relates numerous interesting anecdotes of animal life, many of them humorous, and he describes the dangerous hazards incurred by the zoologist. Mr. Morse has been in many tight places, from which he has emerged by virtue of an extraordinarily cool head and quick wit. This makes thrilling telling, and in his unassuming way Mr. Morse weaves such experiences into his platform work with startling effect. He gives what is really a lecture-entertainment. It is an amusing and amazing narrative crowded with vivid stories of that mysterious animal kingdom beneath man's physical dominion, but beyond his comprehension. Mr. Morse has a constructive purpose underlying his lecture—a purpose which gains in import the more it is considered. He believes that animals have been created with reasoning power, and can and do make use of it. He gives a graphic idea of what the study of animal psychology has accomplished, and presents many facts which are definitely illuminating and interesting.
