It featured chariot and equestrian, races, and horses have been a part of circuses ever since. Later, in modern Europe, small louring family circuses became common, but they were usually one-ring affairs. They popularized the talking clown. It remained for the United States to restore the circus to the colossal spectacle it had once been in ancient Rome. The vast size and mobility of the modern traveling drain is strictly an American invention, undisputed even by the Russians. Featuring hundreds of animals, scores of freaks, wild west shows, md dozens of acts, its great size made the wisecracking clown out- f-dnte. It led to the rise of the lantomimic clowns, exemplified oday by Emmett Kelly, whose ad hobo face made millions augh without quite knowing why. The extreme efficiency with vhich the'huge American circuses jould set up and bring down their ents, then travel hundreds of miles overnight and be ready lor a new show in another town the next afternoon is said to have inspired Prussian leaders in speed- ng up the mobility ot German armies. But this same gigantism is probably the real cause of the death of the big tent shows. Some circus fans say John Ringling North is to blame — that he strayed too far from the old- fashioned idea of the circus and made it too much like a musical extravaganza. Others say the spread of television is—the real reason, and there may be some truth in this, although there is a tendency now to blame television lor everything from heat waves to a fall in the stock market. But it is move likely that the real reason for the decline of "the big show" is that—it simply got too big in a crowded time, and became too costly to operate at a profit. North promises for next year a circus that will be an "almost completely mechanically e o n- trolled exhibition." This pronouncement has an air of mystery. Nobody knows for sure just what a push-button circus will be like. But it's safe to say that nobody can really kill the circus unless they kill its smell. There is no smell on earth quite like it, and so far they haven't found a way to put the circus smell on a television screen. 4-lPers Named To Represent Jersey at Fair JERSEYVILLE — The Jersey County 4-H Agricultural demonstration and public speaking contest was held Monday evening in the Farm Bureau basement with Ray Rendleman.
