  • Monday Memories: Getting her picture taken is an auspicious occasion for any young lady, and Louise, a chimpanzee at the Toledo Zoo, reacts with a big smile. But the Blade's photographer was incidental to this scene. John Sinkovic, X-ray technician at St. Vincent's Hospital, shown with Louise, was at the zoo to X-ray several of the chimps.
