Brcthers and Barmun & and enjoyment the Greatest Show on Earth. This year, this stupendous phantasmagoria has been revised and redesigned by that world renowned master of spectacle, Norman Bel Geddes. His revoliuion- siry and nwrnficent designs have snatched away the breath cf millions in many fie'ds. "To afford you the maximum of pleasure, this gargantuan assemblage of man and beast has been modernised from the upoermosi pinnacle of the Big Top clown to His hilarious antics and ccmedy conceits of the fimmaklng clawtv* from every land; even to ihe resplendent uniforms of the host of courteous attendants. ''As if so commanded by the magic of an Indian fakir, this gigantic canvas rcof above this hippodrome remains suspended in air—with uo support from within i, by clumsy, adiaphanous poles. Your view of the extravaganza you are about to regard will be further enhanced through the necromancy, of modern science and a myriad of new and iiu-eniou.s spotlights. MENMG&RIE BECOMES VTHITABLE JUNGLE "The astounding and startling aerial sensations and the incomparable presentations of world-renowned eciuilibi Lstic stars Unit you are socn to inspect will seem dou- i bly incredible without the maze, of apparatus that has accompan-! ! ed these performances in previous' years. "After man and beast have performed their death-defying feau in this arena, you will wish to inspect the'' world's largest traveling zoological collection, with its almost priceless specimens frqn every: clime. "Through the wiz of untiring felloe artists, this vast menagerie has been transformec" into a veritable jungle. Each of the caged, ferocious beasts is I j housed against a painted back|' ground simulating his wild and treacherous native jungle habitat '•To afford a better view of this unsurpassed collection of untamed animals, new and revolu- of poles inside the acts. Model above shows how itestenor Norman Bel Gtrldes will support the tent without u single iuurrior pole. , tionary cages, fashioned of won- drcus plastics and curved for increased visibility, have been purchased. These have been deftly maneuvered to circumscribe two enormous rings at either end of this unparagoned menagerie. In [ the center of one ring you may I witness hundreds of scampering simians chattering incomprehen- [ sibly on n new and unique 'mon- I key mountain: In the other are j displayed perfectly schooled i beasts, inculcated with inconceivable Jntellisence.

Yet the movie colony rather cherishes a few such characters Jscause. after all the tears and -ravail, they're gocd for a lot of aughs.
