Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

BILL, being in early March I assume this was an indoor date. Please advise if you know. I believe Adkins did like to play fair dates, Shrine, etc. with H-W.

If the date was under canvas that year Clyde Beatty would have been in the show. I understood that H-W in that time did not open under canvas until Beatty was done ibn the GARDEN.

Man I sure did screw up the spacing on this set of posts.

Johnny, I find no mention in the program of being indoors, but I'm sure you are right, and there is no cat act. I see Adkins was also an honoray member of Moslem Temple in Detroit, I wonder if they ever did that date.

On another page, that I missed, it has the following.

We wish to call attention to the Premier Presentation of the beautiful, colorful and spectacular Pageant, "A Night in Fairyland", 150 people. Written,directed and under the Personal Supervision of Rex de Rosselli. Fred Ledgett(Equestrian Director)....Eddie Woeckener(Musical Director)

One time I was waiting for my X in his office, I began reading the messages on the cork board. I underlined all the typo his secretary made in red pen. STUPID I never stopped to think how embarrested I made her. That company could not have functioned without her. One of the very few things I regret doing. Thank god there are no red pencils on the blog.
