When he was 4, more than a : year ago, he was weaving around j a gymnasium floor on a unicycle. Now, at 5, he's believed to be the youngest unicycle rider in the country. Charle's father saves a 1933 clipping from Robert L. Ripley's "Believe It or Not" column which pictures a 6-year-old boy riding a unicycle. Ripley said he had heard of no other single-wheel rider any younger. The blue-eyed, young Van Buskirk athlete, who has no fonder ambition than to be exactly like his father when he grows up, could be making a career in vaudeville if he didn't have to be in bed by 8 o'clock every night. The only time he's been allowed out after H to entertain was last New Tear's Eve whea he took the part of the baby New Year in a stage program in a downtown theater. He's ridden a few times with the Sarson Cyclists, a four-member entertainment team of which his father is a member. Van Buskirk is an engraver by profession, but the group plays an occasional ben efit engagement. Charles probably will accompany his father to Ba- tavia and Canandaigua veterans hospitals to perform next month. Van Buskirk said he wasn't training his son with an eye toward a show career because "there's no future in It now. "When I first came to Rochester 16 years ago, there were five houses here that ran vaudeville," he recalled. "One after another they all gave it up.

The collector said total taxes for 1944 were $633,812,874, as compared with 1945 collections of $605,399,096 a drop of $28,413,778.
