he and Bobby starred. · * » The Barnes circus has changed billing so that this season the show will be billed as "Al G. Barnes Sells-Floto Combined Shows Present Stupendous Ringling Bros, and Barnum it Bailey Features." The regular title will be used next season the Ringling show goes on the again. The Ringling-owned Barnes show has "leased" the features. · * * Charles Sparks, owner of Downie Bros, circus, plans to return to the road next month. The show opened in Macon, Ga., in April and closed at Portsmouth, Va., on May 31, a long stretch of bad weather and poor business conditions. He thinks the time is ripe for another try is all set to go. · * *
