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!

QUASSARS QUIZ: AMATEUR KNOCK ACT ABOUT 1952

These three YMCA gymnasts saw an ad in the paper for auditions being held in Columbus, Ohio for a TV show, called "Contest Carnival", they passed the audition, went to Phladelphia, & won the competition. The boy on the left, Bob Brugger, became a firefighter until retirement, the one on the right, Harry Kinnison, joined the airforce, & later became an aviation engineer, & wrote a book, "Aviation Maintanance Management", that is widely used to teach Aircraft Maintance. The third boy,(in the air)???? Two days before starting College he, "ran away to join the Circus", & never looked back. Who is he???? The talent scout for the TV show was Ray Beaudet, who was later a booking agent associated with Leo Grund.

Of course I have an inside track to the identity of this fellow. When he was growing up he could usually be found in the highest place in the neighborhood. It just may be your "Blog Host"

Mr. Strong???????? Yep at's me, I think getting shorter sort of comes with age, not that I have a problem with that. I'm not going to lie about my age until I reach 39!!!!

Bill - having read your profile, I have to question your mathematical ability.
I know that you Americans do "math" rather than our British "maths", and that means you do less of it than we do, but I'm certain there is quite an overlap.
Unless, of course, you've managed to develop a new system,

John.
