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!

JIM A., U AXTED 4 IT: FROM PENNY RODRIGUEZ, THE ST LEON'S KNOCK-ABOUT TABLE ACT, "THE SIX SAILORS"

I still remember "seven", but no matter, this was one those acts that went non stop, from start to finish, with everyone in the act doing something all the time, it personified the expression, "it ain't over till it's over"!!!!

The faces I recognize are Bobby Hines,(left, sitting on table); Mickey Rodriguez,(in the air behind the table); Clyde, or Norman,(I never could remember which was which, in the air on the right); he's getting ready to slide feet first & knock Bobby off the table. When we worked on shows together, Raul Hoffman was also in the act.

Thanks for reviewing my mind. Yes, Bobby on the table, Mickey, --and behind Mickey, could be Ralph since he was the tallest. Norman in the squat position and Clyde in the catching position. Now, Who is it on the mat?? Guess only Penny would know.
