After a denionstration of "artis-

pearances of "Ricky the Clown,"
the show drew to a close.
"Stop in next year," Patterson
said as he counted the morning's

JS FUNNYMEN-Sending up a rocket to the moon, lighting a whipped cream bomb, or just
rg state regulations on possession and use of firecrackers; three clowns delighted spectafors at'
lay's performance of the circus. Ann Arbor youngsters watched intently as the clowns cavorted
tempted to get the greatest possible number of laughs out of a simple stunt.

Princess Sells
Twirling his "hand-made" lariat,
the Oklahoma Kid went through
his, "famous wild-west" act. Prin-
cess Blue Clouct, garbed in powder
blue buckstin, bore a striking

another firecracker at the first
clown's feet.
Corn Pops
A small cluster of hungry chil-
dren were already gathered around
the popcorn booth when the loud-
speaker announced the intermis-,

An antiquated popper kept Mrs.
Patterson busy filling the chil-
dren's, requests. "My husband
doesn't like to talk about his days
