Circus Performers Work
. To Perfect Summer Show
J 1 By HAL BOYLE
I SARASOTA, Fla., March 24
i, i) A circus getting ready lor
i; Its spring opening is about s
glamorous as a middle aged
chorus girl with her noso peel-
lug from sunburn.
I The ordeal of the road is as
t nothing to the ordeal of getting
'i ready.
!,i In their winter quarters on the
if edge of Sarasota performers of
the Ringling Bros, and Barnum
i and Bailey circus are rounding
i! into shape for the season debut
April 9th in Medison Square
':) Garden.
if Under the flapping canvas of
t the big tent, thick-calved young
dancers in sloppy slacks rehearse
.i'i- without spangle or glitter while
;J the director's tired voice rasps
. over and over:
' "Do not stop with the poles.
;! I told you that. Didn't I tell
!J ya that a hunnert times? Do
f not stop with the poles."
Broad-backed horses trot in
everlasting circles, lions snake

I Food Poisoning
j Fatal To Two
;i WALLA WALLA. March 24
(P) Botulism anti-toxin, rushed
here by navy plane from Seattle,
was being administered today to
Japanese farm laborers suffer
ing from an apparent case of
food poisoning which killed two
of their fellow workers. .
Several of the laborers were
known to have partaken of the
same food as the two Japanese
whose deaths were tentatively
ascribed to botulism by Prose
cutoi Al Bradford. One worker
was hospitalized.
The serum was rushed by
plane last night after doctors
used the last of two vials on
hand here and an appeal was
made to Dr. Arthur Ringle,
state health director.
Coroner F. L. Simmonds said
post mortems on Juti Kirihari,
who died late Friday, and Sam
Yomada, found dead yesterday,
indicated they had Miff"-d
from food poisoning. A chem
ical analysis is being made to
definitely determine the cause
of their deaths.
Bradford said a case of home
canned goods used at the camp
is being analyzed to ascertain if
it contained botulism poisoning.
Former Klamath
Man In Hospital
Word has been received here
that Olaf Redahl, former resident
of Klamath Falls, is in Yolo
county general hospital at Wood
land suffering from injuries re
ceived when he was run over by
an automobile.
' Redahl has written acquaint
ances here that he is anxious to
get in touch with Arnt Fiskerud
, of Klamath Falls. He asked that
Fiskerud write him immediately
at the Yolo hospital.

their cages with coughing roars
and thirty elephants dream of
free peanuts.
Chorus lassies who never had
their feet mora than a high kick
off the floor five weeks ago soar
nimbly up the ropes to practice
an aerial can-can which will give
th; fathers something to admire
while the children are laughing
at the clowns.
"It's a circus with its coat off
now," said big Jim Haley its
cigar-puffing president. "Here's
where the real work is."
Circus proprietors don't speak
with the superlative eolquence of
other years. Apparently they
leased all their adjectives to the
Hollywood movie producers.
"We just think we've got the
finest show we ever put together
let it go at that," said Haley.
"Circus acts are like baseball
plays. This year we've got an
entire new team. Last season
was the best in circus history.
Things have quieted down a lit
tle, but we expect a good year."
The exuberant vice president,
John Ringling North, said that
the 40 acts he had hired during
his first post-war raid of Euro
pean talent were all new to
American audiences.
The circus is also continuing
its wartime program of luring
more grownups to tent seats by
emphasizing sex as well as
clowns and wild animals. John
Murray Anderson is producing a
spectacular show employing a
hundred girls.
The girls get from $40 to $130
a week depending upon wheth
er they just dance in the bal
lets or also play hopscotch with
the elephants.
"Each year 40 per cent of the
girls are new to the circus," an
official said. "Lots of 'em get
married every year."
Others presumably just get
tired of lying in the tanbark
looking up at the toenails of
an uplifted elephant's foot and
wondering whether the pachy
derm will slip on a banana peel.
The circus will go north this
year in a hundred gay red rail
road cars carrying 1400 workers,
performers and people who pass
out free tickets.
Gargantua the gorilla who
looks like a gorilla, will have
a little "tiny tot" competition
from two baby jaguars and two
newborn leopards. The jaguars
are being nursed by a friendly
housecat, the leopards by a
Hazed lady dog.
Vice President North is an
noyed with the U. S. department
of agriculture which declined to
let him bring in a Belgian pig
act under Belgium's immigration
quota.
'They have some kind of rule
against admitting cloven-hoofed
animals," he said, "but one of
these pigs was wonderful. He
could push bells with his snout
and play 'Whose Afraid of the
Big Bad Wolf."
"I'm still trying to get that
pig in. We shouldn't ban edu
cated animals like that from J
America."
Due to the fact that we are discontinuing our
operation of the M & M Market, we wish to
thank all our customers, both large and small,
for the generous patronage we have enjoyed
in the past.
