Lu-lu, circus chimpanzee visiting Newcastle, has a friendly drop of beer with Mr. Tom
Elliott in a hotel yesterday. Lu-lu is a polite animal. She shakes hands with men, and for women she bows gallantly and kisses their bands. Aged three, she does an acrobatic act, including loop-the-loop. In Europe, she swallowed a piece of metal, which was recovered by surgeons by making an incision in her side.
