Gainesville, Tex.—The Gainesville
Community Circus long since dis-
tinguished as the only show of its
kind In this country, by reason of
the fact that all of Its performances
are home town amateurs, began ita
eighth season when it exhibited un-
der the big top here Wedneeday

The circus, which had ita begin-
ning modestly enough as a burles-
que circus sponsored by a little thea-
tre group in 1930, leaped into na-
tional attention when it began to
tour county fairs in North Texas
and Southern Oklahoma four years
ago and has since appeared at out-
standing functions including the Tex-
as Centennial Exposition in Dallas
The circus of today is a far cry
from the first venture when ballet
numbers and posing acts made up
for the deficit in actual circus tal-
ent and were presented in a single
dirt ring in the Fair Park Auditor-
Nowadays the organization has a
three ring arena, its properties run
into the thousands of dollars and ita
performers—still bankers, lawyers,
doctors, clerks, messenger boys,
housewives and students—run the
gamut of circus thrills on the high
trapeze, bareback horses and the
teetering board and in ground tum-
bling, juggling and contortionistlc
Likewise there are trained ani-
mals, military ponies, high wire
walking, dogs, high school horses
and comedy mules. And of course,
there are clowns, dozens of them,
headed by Benny Saylors, light com-
pany accountant, Billy Basinger, cafe
owner; Dr. S. M, Yarborough, sur-
geon; T„ J. Vaughn, attorney, and
A. W. Wells, mathematics teacher.
Outstanding among the new acts
enumerated by Leon Gilmore, ring-
master and president of the circus,
are the aerial bar performers, Leon
Gilmer Jr., Bill Ritchie, Newman
Shell and Ctrl Stewart; Marjorie
Mitchell who slides 300 feet from
the top of the tent; uainty lit-
tle Dorris Marie Norman, 7 years
old, doing a heel catch on a high
trapexe without a net; Clarence
Gilmore, who slides backward down
a rope from the top of the tent and
an electrically lighted aerial ballet
of a dozen girlz.
■ The circus invests all its profits
in making the show bigger and bet-
ter. It is administered by a board
of directors headed by Gilmore with
Roy Wilson, County Superintendent
of Schools as vice president/and IX
E. O'Brien, banker, as teeretary-
treasurcr. Directors are George J.
Carroll, Frank X. Schad, Alex Mur-

Woodrum, who has been arguing
for economy and against "economy
hysteria,” said the proper way of
approaching a reduction in public ex-
penditures is by having individual
items considered by the Appropria-

House already have been trimmed

idential recommendations, he noted.

asserted the burden of trihtoning
