With Russell Bros.' Circus coming to Willow Lane show grounds, Hagerstown, Thursday, Aug. 3, will be a vast and varied assortment of clowns, any one of whom will tell you that their job of making people laugh is actually a mighty serious business. The clown is "on his own" more than any other member of the circus. He must devise his own gags, and whether they create laughter is up to him alone. He must be a student of human psychology. A good clown will study his audience before the show. He knows that what made a hit with yesterday's crowd may fall flat with today's, and governs his stunts accordingly. Clowns of all sorts and descriptions are found with Russell Bros.— tall, short, lean and fat; white- faced clowns and character clowns; whimsical pantomimists and agile acrobatic fellows. As they make their various appearance and circle the hippodrome track, cartoon characters come to life, current events and human foibles are amusingly caricatured, and all manner of mischievous pranks are perpetrated. Their comical interludes give balance to the circus performance and relieve the tension of the thrilling and daring acts. Starting at 2 and S p. m., two complete performances are given daily.
