About 1958 there was an even at the foot of the star. From the N.Y. City "Today Show" the host Dave Garroway and his chimpanzee - J.Fred Muggs were the invited celebrities for the show which was televised under the star. At that time I was a Radford College student in the Highlander Band. we also were invited to participate. Well, J. Fred Muggs got loose up into the trees which caused a scare. He was soon caught (I don't remember how). I always thought why the chimp wasn't tethered. It was only natural for him to head for the trees.
