Mr. Jason Cowles Judges Worst Boom
at Fair; Will Tell Results in
Own Colyum
The Union Fair, gala circus of the
Michigan year, repeated its success of
Friday when three thousand people
thronged the Yost field house for the
final night of its showing.
The success of the Fair was assur-
ed early Saturday night when the peo-
ple began to pour through the doors
of the field house. The building was
jammed again, and the sideshows and
dance floor were operating at full
strength all evening.
The atmosphere of the Fair had
changed a trifle for the second night.
The noise, the bedlem, the circus at-
mosphere, was still there, but a new
element had crept in. Townspeople
were more in evidence, going from
sideshow to sideshow to dispose of
their Saturday night pay checks. The
dance floor proved a more popular at-
traction to the students than it had
Friday night, while the sideshows
were a little -less patronized.
The actors in the shows, too, were
a little jaded and worn. The criers,
continually bellowing forth the praises
of the shows they advertised, allowed
their voices to crack occasionally, as
they became hoarse from the continu-
ous yelling. But their enthusiasm was
none the less, and they worked them-
selves into the same fanatical state
that a crier must be in to be success-
ful in his trade.,
Although receipts from the two
nights of the Fair will not be count-
ed until Monday the success of the
enterprise 'is practically assured
through partial estimates of sales.
Gate receipts from the two nights
alone will net well over $3,000, It Is
thought, while the ten ticket booths
averaged nearly $300 apiece In their
sales Friday night.
The success of the Fair will mean
the almost immediate beginning of
work on the Union swimming pool.
The Fair was given as a means of
raising money to complete the pool.
and contracts will be let as soon as
the necessary money is obtained.
Winners of the various cups which
have been offered by local merchants
will be announced after a meeting of
the judging committee tomorrow. The
cups offered by the Arcade and Ma-
jestic theaters for the worst booths
at the fair will be judged independent
ly by Mr. Jason Cowles.
