Four members of the Mason City ligh school coaching staff gave the ions a preview of the football sea- on. Wednesday: noon. Howard Barker, Bill Steneker, Ken 0 riff en nd Bob Heston were heard, in that rder. A team somewhat huskier than hose which have represented Maon City on the gridiron in recent r-ears seems assured. Pretty much the players are those from last ear with an average of 10 or 15 pounds of additional .weight. Whether the Mohawks surpass ast year's record of five losses against three wins is dependent on low strong the opponents prove to e, Couch Heston pointed out. "We caught all the tough ones ast year," he added with a smile. T «can't believe we'll be that unlucky two years in a row." All of the coaches paid compli ntent to the squad of 60 men and ;he will to win .which has characterized initial practice sessions. For the spectator, high school football this year will look very much like last year's game, according to Heston. There have been few rule changes, he said, and none of them very spectacular. In wet weather, a rubber football --less slippery than a wet pigskin bait--can be used if agreed to by both teams. This should'make for less fumbling, Heston observed. Under a rule agreed to within the conference, visiting teams will be wearing white jerseys in all games, providing a contrast bene ficial to players and spectators alike. , G u e s t s Wednesday included Claude Pigman of Marshnlltown, Kenneth Kickbush of Algona and Prof. Willis Dugan of the University of Minnesota, Diyorces Granted , C7*rljrl« ,.]*§,, K«»t» fr*m Arl*n* M»i Xaa«a* MI groitmd* ot eru*fljr* TJiej- «*jn by »Up*l»(lHi Ihjii «li« l« iw kmfft cu«|4Hly of iwo children.

Clyde Beatty "Mr. Circus" Himself in Big Cats' Cage By CARL WRIGHT Clyde Beatty, owner and star of he Clyde Beatty Circus, which ilayed Mason City Wednesday, is 'Mr. Circus" himself. ' There . is something about this curly-haired man who rushes into he steel arena filled with snarling lions and tigers that ups the blood ressure for about 20 minutes. It's true the baric of a gun and rack of th« whip · punctuate the ct with added showmanship. But t's a strong left arm that clutches hat kitchen chair at all times. ' , Uto* Chair It's one of the strangest uses a citcben chair has ever been put to, but $o far nothing has ever been ound more effective with the big ats from the days of .Karl Ha gen back to the present. ' ; ' Beatty himself started his wild animal training career about 30 years ago with Howe's Great Lon don Circus. He was among the first ever to ry. mixing black-maned Nubian ions and royal Bengal tigers in he' same cage. And he has', added many tricks to the art of animal raining from its earliest days. Although two performances went smoothly in Mason City Wednes- lay, it is not always this way. He las been clawed more than once, ometimes not even noticing it until the excitement of the act is all over. Lives With Danger Although he is the owner and op erator oE the circus that travels under his name, he stilt enters the big cage twice daily to take his life n his hands-- just the same as the teast of the performers in the big top. Beatty, who stars in his own cir cus, is busy all year with his radio and television programs and movie making as well. He has surrounded himself with a number of truly fine circus performers from this popu iar West Coast show. His chief traner, Zeakolen WalsK outs his trained elephant riding tiger through a routine that is second only to the huge cat act that is the top feature on the show John Cline, trainer of the Clyde Beatty liberty horses, and Milonga Clinc, trainer of the elephant ant Sony novelties, were ' outstanding in their fields. Barbette Evident The touch of Barbette, producer of lavish super spectacles, is evi dent in the special production num bers of the 1952 edition of the cir cus. Originally from Rome, Where he was in the Italian movie industry, he has carved a name for himselj via the movies and circus ' enterprises in this country as well. He is peer of creative ability in pro duction numbers such as the loop the-loop girls, iron jaw, aerial bal let and other lavish numbers. Con Colleano, the d a n c i n g bouncing somersaulting "Toreador of the Tight Wire," is still tops in his field, the only human who has ever accomplished the forwarc somersault on the tight wire.

Strictly Fresh EGGS Dozen 49 ENTERS AIR FORCE--Miss Betty Lund, daughter of Mr. and Mrt. Olof Lund, Hanlontown, was one of throe to enter the Women's Air Force from the Mason City office this week. She left Oes Moines Wednesday for Lock I and Air Bate, San Antonio, Texa*. Marjorie Stahrr Taylor, Mason City, and Marjorie Helen Hamilton, 'daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hamilton, Hampton, also joined the Women's Air Force. routine in the center ring and the Flying Harolds closed the performance with a sensational flying act high in the, big top. The big spectacle of the circus was the "Return of the Safari,".in. which Clyde Beatty presents an authentically costumed safari with animals from all parts of the world. ; Beatty is first and foremost an animal trainer. His circus is built around this; but he has color, and dancing girls, clowns and circus performers to offer a well rounded show. · Smalt One Too And one of the smallest elephants ever brought to Mason City, which trailed the herd on Wednesday, may some day grow up Jto lead the procession. As for, "Mr. Circus" himself, Beatty has plans for growth even larger than t h e y o u n g pachyderm's. He is headed for Africa this winter to bring back more cats, more elephants and more 'of everything in the jungle. That's the man who enters the big cage twice daily to make, a living because he enjoys it. Meteorologists now believe that after the sub-zero cold of moderately high altitudes is .passed/ a temperature inversion zone is encountered (at from 55 to 400 miles) where temperatures may rise front minus 28 degrees Fahrenheit Uo 4,000 degrees.
