Sen. Bayh Predicts Vote Will Be Ratified By 72 Election By ROY McGHEE WASHINGTON. (UPI) - Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., predicted Friday that a proposed constitutional amendment giving 18- year-olds • the vote in ali elections will pass Congress this year and. be ratified by the states before the 1972 elections. A law already gives 18-year-' olds the right to vote for President, senators, congressmen and federal officeholders. But a Supreme 'Court decision struck down the part of the law giving them a vote in state and local elections. Bayh said that because of the court decision, "47 states now face the possibility of having to administer the 1972 election under a system of dual-age voting." Because of this possibility, he said, he expects Congress to pass the amendment this year and the three-fourths of the states^- necessary for ratifica- Carl L.

Each year about 2,000 citizens of Peru, from age 6 up, put their efforts into creating a circus which gives seven performances in July. • The idea came about because Peru was once the winter home of almost every ma- J jor circus in the United States. -* Many noted circus performers and trainers retired there. The undertaking required planning, training and organization, as well as dldfashioned hard work. ; Making a television show, illustrating how the young people of Peru learn the circus routines from their elders, was the conception and accomplishment of David Tapper, producer-director. of "Circus Town." He planned the idea for a couple of years before he found interest in a national network. Last February, after he had received a go- ahead 5 from NBC to do the show, he went to Peru to line up local support. " Tapper wanted first to talk to. some of the younger people in their teens who perform, to the people who' trained them, and to the town organizers of the circus to set up the complex arrange-. ments for filming, and also to find the heartbeat behind the venture. The laughter and tears evoked in and by the program attest to the success of Tapper's planning and work. He piled his wife, Suzette, two. young . children, a housekeeper and her mother into a station wagon with a trailer attached and drove to Indiana. He also brought out his photographer, Dan Drasin, an assistant photographer, his wife, a soundman and Joe Rubin, a Brandeis College student who wanted to learn about filmmaking. They rented a large mansion in the heart of town. Atfirstit seemed absurdly large, but it was found that if the entire crew -lived .there, the problems with meals and living in a smaU town and working such odd hours could best be met. At first it seemed odd that Peruvians didn't make a fuss over the television people with aH their sophisticated equipment. They just took it as an everyday occurrence. "The people of Peru," says Tapper, "were not overwhelmed by our coming. They had their own show to bring off. Their undertaking was'more important to them. We didn't resent it,, however, because it made them behave naturaUy before the cameras and that made for abetter TV show. Our aim was to show after all, -hot a circus, but how a smaU town puts on a circus. We " didn't make up any incidents for our show? We filmed what actu- aUy goes on year after year." " Operations were so complicated dealing with hundreds of people, including scores^ of schoolchildren, that Tapper published a daily schedule in 100 copy runs and posted them all over town. He further engaged *Tom Hodgini of- Peru, one of the trainers and formerly a profess-, ional with some of the country's «tpp circuses, as a­ sistant. "We were very demanding of Peru and its people, so it was very helpful to have Tom make the arrangements with his fellow .townspeople," Tapper said. "We believe we have a film filled with' real humanity, a film people will love, no matter where they live."
