Oats and soybeans were mostly slightly lower. Buying in corn was based on the firm demand for the cash grain, quoted at a substantial premium over the July future. In addition, farmers reportedly have signed up to put some corn acreage into the soil bank. Profitt-aking 'after the recent sharp advance, climaxed in Monday's session, got the better of wheat and rye. Brokers reported mills continued to give wheat good support on the decline.

John Ringling North, board ]n1(M . na , (rouWps Several circus, abruptly announced the 'closing of the 1956 season shortly before the afternoon show. Thing of t'HNt "The tented circus as it now exists is, in my opinion, a thing of the past," North said. "We are considering plans for the future which may involve an almost completely mechanically controlled exhibition." But he promised the 87th presentation ot the circus will open as usual next year on April 3 at Madison Square Garden in New York and will play the 1937 season in other air-conditioned arenas all over the United States. Gone will be the big lop, the sideshows and ' the midway — where wide • eyed youngsters strolled .with their parents and cajoled peanuts, cotton candy and bright-lined dolls and other trin- kels. Labor troubles, bad weather. rising costs and other factors such as television, which cut into attendance, put an end to the tent show. Similar problems sounded the death knell earlier this year for two other circuses—Clyde Beatty und King Bros. However, a group ot men formerly associated with Uingling Bros., Barnum & Bailey has purchased the Clyde Beatty Circus arid plan to reopen It Aug. 3C in Albuquerque, N,M. If the plan materializes, it would be the last big traveling road circus in America. Nil Word ut Future North could not he rem'hed fur comment and nobody else in authority with the circus would suy what will become of the 800 to 3,000 pursoni un the payroll. Many seemed to feel they would have to «nd work elsewhere. Others hoped they would be able to stav on. flared up. times management changed hands. Then on July 1, 1944, came one of the biggest blows. Panic broke out when a fire started in the big top .in Hartford, Conn. One hundred and sixty-eight persons died and 487 were injured in the ensuing stampede. In the next 10 years the circus paid out some four million dollars in damage claims. Some officials went to jail. North, head of the circus for most of the years since the death of his uncle John Ringling, rounded up sqme of the greatest performers in the world, air-conditioned the big top and made many innovations. Trouble* Mounted But troubles continued to mount. Patronage declined. Unions pressed for recognition. Feuds developed and key personnel resigned. Lots big enough to accommodate the huge tent became, scarce, and the circus had to set up on the outskirts of cities. Recently, bad weather and injuries plagued the circus. It was against this background that North decided to call it quits on the "Sawdust Trail." At Sarasota, famed sadfaeed clown Emmett Kelly, who left the circus at the start of the current season when pickets of the American Guild of Variety Artists appeared, refused to take a pessimistic view. He said: "1 don't think the eircus is fin- jished by any means. The tented version may be gone. 1 think it's •i smart thins for them to avoid the hot July and August days. They never did any business then anyway. They'll probably be forming some indoor unit when they t^el here.
