Bozo Ward, the International Clown King Bros, enormous combined shows will exhibit in Hope Wednesday October 27th. Shipley-Crew;; show grounds. A score of clowns headed by Bozo Ward, Eddie Hoclgini and" Fred Wenzel will head the fun making department. They promise to dish up the latest in gloom chasing skits and uncork some of the time-proven gags circus lovers demand. There are GOO people traveling with the King Bros. Circus this season, in addition to 30 advance men. The performance is given in three rings, on two elevated stages, huge aerial enclave and on giant hippodrome (rack. There are 150 performers, many of whom are appearing for the first time in America, newly imported from Europe. During the war there was no importation of foreign features. One of the great features of the King Bros. Cricus from season to season, has been its comprehensive and diversified menagerie. More than 125 animals are carried with the vast organisation, including scores of American animals, seldom exhibited outside of metropolitan zoos. The King Bros. Circus is'now in its 29th year. It has grown from a small show traveling on two railroad cars to its present eminence in the circus world: Team work and perseverance of a remarkable family of poor boys combined with ingenuity and an unswerving policy to give a bigger and better performance each season has iust won laurels. Their mutual understanding is a copartnership arrangement of the simDlesl form, A child would have no difficulty in grasping the agreement which binds these famous showmen together; yet a world marvel of achievement. Doors to the menagerie will open at 1 and 7 p. m. erformances will be given at 2 and 8 p. m. Red Teacher Continued From Page One on the third floor, but ate very itlJe. "What can we do for you, is -here something special we can get Tor you?" they would ask sweet- shly. In the street outside, upon which ,he two windows of my room ooked out, there was usual and ncessant activity. Through the drawn curtains and behind the irapcs at the window sides I could ee knots of people on the sidewalk ind in front of the fashionable lotel across, gazing at the consu- ate. I caught glimpses of the reporters, photographers and police iccosting the consular officials as .hey came and went. The consulate itself 'became something like a fortress under siege. From the Amtorg and the UN personnel Soviet officials were recruited and installed in our build- ng as if they were preparing to repel an invasion. Every few minutes someone would either pass my room or look into it. Yet the vigil inside and outside gave me courage. I fell that I was no longer alone, that I had the support of the American people. This became strikingly evident when Lomakin was served with papers to produce me in an American court. There was much excitement over it in the consulate. I thought that the police chiefs who called on Lomakin would insist on seeing me and taking me Before the judge. Then my keepers would become extremely concerned over my welfare. "You'll be our chief witness." Vice Consul Chepurnykh said to me one day in his most endearing manner. I thought otherwise. By this time I realized that my appearance in an American court would be my last chance to break away from my jailers and to reach an open road to freedom.

I hoped thai there, at the Long Island estate which was being used as a rest-home for Soviet officials, I would find it nossible to escape to freedom. But these pleas of mine fell on deaf oars. "Skoro poyedem—we'll be leav- inp soon," Lomakin would answer indicating that he, loo, expee'ted to journey back lo Russia. One day Lomakin reported tn me thai Countess Tolstoy had declared lo Ihe press that I had a sister in England and lhat my husband had been purged. lie | feigned surprise al these facts which I had confided lo Miss Tolstoy, and queried me about it in a significant tone.

I began to figure out possible ways and means of escaping I feared among Ihe onlookers in Die street there might be Soviet agents planted by the consulate to see if I were communicating by signals with confederates outside. I virtually slopped taking food, which worried the consul greatly, lie would ask me if there were any appetizing items they could buy for me. I kept insisting that I wanted a change of quarters. I put on a pair of slacks and a jacket, and tried to relax.' But I could find no peace.

"Go back to your room!" Lomakin himself appeared. "Podnimvytes! — Up you go!" he snarled, repeating the order. I was hustled up the stairs. Two of the consular females were immediately assigned to me. One of them was Petrova. the other my former landlady, /Cova Poroinia- kova.- who bad lier little girl Olech- ka with her. "Why did you do Ibis?" they asked. "Do you think that vou're under arrest?" Zoya rem:irked with a sly smile. "Why?" I cried, breaking into sobs. "They don't let me go out. I'm stifling here without air. I'm no longer my ov. n self, and sit slil lor rest." I sat flu-re smokint "What shall I do now'.'" I kept saying to myself.
