  • Description

    GERMAN IMMIGRANT CAUSED QUITE A COMMOTION OUTSIDE THE SOVIET EMBASSY WHILE MIKOYAN WAS ENJOYING AN OTHERWISE PEACEFUL SUNDAY MORNING. 28-YEAR-OLD KARL HERTLE (CQ) APPEARED WITH A BRIEF CASE -- AND BEFORE HE KNEW IT, HE WAS RIDING AWAY IN A POLICE VAN. HERTLE HAD BEEN LOITERING NEAR THE EMBASSY, AND POLICE FEARED THE CASE CONTAINED A BOMB. HERTLE SAID IT CONTAINED BLUE-PRINTS OF AN INVENTION. NO BOMB WAS FOUND, AND HERTLE WAS RELEASED.

    THIS CRISIS OVER, MIKOYAN WAS OFF ON ANOTHER OF HIS WALKING TOURS -- THIS TIME, TO THE ZOO IN ROCK CREEK PARK (CQ).

    THE TEMPERATURE WAS NEAR THE 20-MARK, BUT NEITHER MIKOYAN NOR POLAR BEARS SEEMED TO MIND THE BITING WINDS.....ALL BEING FROM COLD CLIMATES. LIKE MANY ANOTHER VISITOR, THE SOVIET TOURIST FED THE ANIMALS AND ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR LIVING HABITS. HE'LL HAVE ANOTHER EXPERIENCE TO TELL TO THE FOLKS BACK HOME.
