Oklahoma Zoological Society to Honor Smith at Annual Dinner


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Long-time civic leader and Oklahoma City Zoo supporter Lee Allan Smith will be the honoree when the Oklahoma Zoological Society Inc. has its annual black-tie dinner March 6. The party willbe at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club, with reservations priced at $60 per person.

The clever invitation features a caricature of Smith done by Oklahoma Publishing Co.'s editorial cartoonist Jim Lange, also a member of the zoological society. The drawing shows Lee Allan's smiling face surrounded by a covy, herd, school or whatever of dolphins. A tiny sign says "The Wizard of OZs" and in the foreground are the Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow of OZ heading down a road to- what else? - Aquaticus.

Smith, vice president and general manager of KTVY Channel 4, has led the campaign to raise money for Aquaticus, an exhibit at the zoo featuring dolphins and other sea life. More than five years have been spent raising funds for Aquaticus, with the first phase formally being opened April 6. A private preview for Oklahoma Zoological Society members will be held April 5.

John E. Kirkpatrick is honorary chairman of the zoological society board and Ronald E. Rosser is chairman. Jimmie C. Thomas is society president. . .

- A special luncheon today is being given in honor of Dr. James L. Dennis, former dean at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and executive vice president for medical center affairs. Hosts for the luncheon at Nicholson Tower are Gov. George Nigh and Dr. Frank Horton, president of OU, on behalf of the university health sciences center.

Dennis, being recognized for his significant part in building the medical center, is chancellor at the University of Arkansas School of Medicine. . .

- And, speaking of being honored, the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine Alumni Association will honor a long-time city pediatrician, Dr. George Garrison, and civic leader Stanton L. Young at its second annual dinner on March 13.

The black-tie dinner will be at the Skirvin Plaza Hotel with reservations priced at $150 per person or $1,200 per table of eight. Co-chairmen of the dinner are Mrs. Dan Hogan III and Mrs.Hal Balyeat.

Proceeds will benefit the college of medicine research fund established after last year's inaugural banquet, according to general chairman Dr. John Bozalis. . .

- Presbyterian Hospital will have its ninth annual Evening of Art this weekend, according to Dr. William L. Hughes, chairman of the hospital's art committee. Twenty-five artists will be represented at the showing which will have a private "premiere" for patrons on Saturday and be open to the public on Sunday.

At the Sunday exhibition, a $5 donation - tax deductible - will be required at the door per person. The exhibit will be from 6-9 p.m. Sunday in the Lawson Conference Center at Presbyterian Hospital. A percentage of the price of each painting sold will go to the hospital.

Artists showing will include Donna Berryhill, Doris Bewley, Greg Burns, Wayne Cooper, Deloras Frederick, Ellen Fultz, Polly Hammett, Winnie Hawkins, Jim Horton, Simonne Hulett, Gretchen Jackson, Bill Jaxon, Robert Lammell, Mike Laresen, Milton Lewis, Joan Marron, Dennis Martin, Pat Menke, Sharon Montgomery, Ron Owens, O.

- Well, the annual Men's Fashion Show, sponsored by Children's Medical Research, Inc., had a surprise ending. Actually, it had two surprise endings.

The first was when "Teddy Kennedy" and "Ronald Reagan" appeared on stage. Under the rubber face masks were, of course, AM Oklahoma personalities Ben and Butch McCain. They were wearing furs from Koslow's and Willmann's, respectively. The two removed their masks to parade down the runway, Ben in a full-length golden fox coat and Butch in a parka of northern coyote. …
