    Vancouver's "killer whale has moved into her new home after being in a drydock for a week. "Moby Doll," as she's known made the journey to her new pen, in the drydock towed by tugs:
    It took a day to move the whale and Vancouver aquarium officials watched the procedure with interest. The whale swam slowly about the drydock while army engineers and frogmen made last-minute adjustments to the fifty-by-eighty-foot enclosure. "Moby Doll" then swam into her new home and the gate was closed. (PAUSE SIX SECONDS)
    The seventeen foot mammal is healing satisfactorily from a harpoon wound. The head of a medical research team said she had received massive injections of Vitamin "B" and is believed to have eaten a couple of fish since being captured.
