Good Day Mr. Wayne...
Thanks for your fantastic photographs.
The photo of elephat that i have send is Guruvayur "Valiya Kesavan". Have you heared about Guruvayur Temple? There is an elephant sanctuary under this famous temple. It is in Kerala near to my home (Only 5 Kms). There are 65 elephants at present. All of them were donated by the devotees.It is such a wonderful place to visit.
This valiya Kesavan comes around 10 feet of hight. He is from the northern state of India (from Bhihar). This Animal is very famous in Kerala (Like Film Star) and there is also FANS Association for this Valiya Kesavan (Elephant). This shows the admiration of the elphants by the Kerala people.
I am herewith sending some recent festival snaps from Kerala. Plz check it.
Hope you are fine.
Thanks &Regards... Marshal

Hugo Schmitt relaxing in the backyard of Mills ('50-'53) with one of his sons? Anyone know why he left Ringling and then went back? How many bulls did Mills have? Compared to RBBB, a small herd no doubt.

Mrs. Castle, at age 99, may still be with us. Castle sold his show to Tarzan Zerbini in 1979.

The next year while being paid, Mrs. Antes presented him with a brown paper bag with the explanation that Mr. DeMille always gave awards to people who did outstanding work in his movies. In this case, three awards were presented, one to the guy who did the special effects for the train wreck, I forget the the second and Fay was the third.
Later when he looked inside he found a beautifully inscribed medallion and $2,000 in one dollar bills. He never made it clear to me why the show would have to come up the the cash.
That evening on the train after counting and recounting, he found that it was one dollar short."
