At one point we had nearly 60 elephants squeezed into that place.
Gunther, Axel and I were called into the Office and it was decided that since Gunther was making his first trip back to Europe on Vacation, he should get the elephant barn.
Axel put up his Blue Show elephant tent and I was shown a place under some trees just outside the Quarters.
On cold nights we would squeeze them into the Ring Barn and sit up with them all night.
Welcome to the Greatest Show On Earth!

The premise was a little girl gazing at this paper, falls asleep and dreams a Circus Adventure.
I thought it was pretty good, produced by some Company out of Nashville that Mattell came up with.
Irvin Feld thought otherwise and Arnold Bramow took great delight in explaining how bad it was, a real Morale Booster.

I thought this trick would be impressive but it didn't go over as well as a single so it I only presented when other Elephant Trainers visited.
One day Sophie Fox came by and I said "I named an elephant after you!" and she said "Oh! Really?".
She was underwhelmed.
