Phone 327-6070 J 3295 0295 3795 i Beginning of funny face Pabo applies clown make-up for day's work at fair. Clown's magic routine attracts little ones Kids are wonderful little people ac- cording to Pabo the Magic Clown And to the kids Pabo is one fascinating and funny who steals thier attention away from and even candy floss At three performances each all staged in the Whoop-Up Pabo finds himself the focal point for many lit- tle eyes While he laughs and talks with his small his hands are busy with quickie magic tricks Some are simply sucker which Pabo says the kids go- ing because they think they know how it's but in the final he's still one up on them The children are drawn into the act and eagerly shout and more colors like puppets controlled by the clown in big polkadot bulbous red nose and baggy lime green costume Off Pabc explains that he was always a cut-up and eventually progressed into the make-up and act which has kept him on the fair circuit as a professional for five years During the summer his wife Wendy and their five children travel with the show as a group The puppet show which attracts many youngsters is run by while a daughter assists Pabo m his magic act as a stage assistant 'I've also started to use the little four- and-one-half year old as an assistant and one of the boys is into the clown act thing as well he says The acts which Pabo uses follow no set routine or strict format He says he wings and stays away from the hard slapstick which is physically more dif- ficult to perform His routines are mixed with magic and all of which are changed from one performance to another kids usually come back a second time and I don't want them to see the same act so some things are while others are Pabo says Although his magic is quite Pabo says many adults leave baffled by his an- tics while the children usually have figured it all out Kids are always always look- ing for answers and never accepting anything With the sucker you can get them going and when you finally do get one up on they're not everyone just laughs Out of Pabo makes his home in California where the children attend school while Dad does clown appearances at shopoing openings and similar events Lynne Van Luven Have we been too long at the iair7 After a week's exposure to attendance cotton candy and the nerve-jangling racket of the midway that question seems more than even if it is culled from an overly-sentimental song Even 10 years stampedes and sports' days were events of feverish interest in communities both large and small They were at least the high point of the if not the entire year Somewhere along the while we've been gaining sophistication and we lost our capacity for enjoy- ment of the simple pleasures small-city fairs are meant to em- body Ami even the kids the excuse a good many adults gave for going to the fair don't seem very impressed any more But how can we expect a youngster reared on supplied daily with enough treats and goodies to ruin his teeth and physique several times and aware of current events in once-exotic countries to be transported by a mere foot- long hotdog or a ride called the Yo-Yo' And why get excited about 'hell drivers' when you'll be getting your own motorbike in a year' What s so frightening about the house of horrors when you've seen 'Son of Dracula' at the dnve-in or when you ve seen news photos of Vietnamese napalmed babies or starving skeletons in Central Africa' And if the kids are adults don't seem to be all that charged up about maintaining the country fair's virtues either Nobody is interested in entering cooking livestock displays are too much and commercial ex- hibits once both entertaining and educational are dull 'booths' slapped up by merchants who would really rather not bother Subtract community involvement and individual interest from a Canadian fair and what have you got left' That jangling tawary huckster the midway And that just does not seem reason enough for declaring a six-day binge of whoop-law and howdy folks Essentially I'm wondering if we haven't outgrown ex- hibitions and fairs Maybe such events for larger centres at least are passe outmoded rituals we annually re-enact because none of the festivity planners can come up with any fresh ideas And thousands of people trooped through the turnstiles this week to attend the Lethbndge Exhibition People who regularly sojurn to Las Vegas put their quarter down on Oskar the Mouse or whatever the bedraggled little creature's name is this People with the experience and education enough to oetter were lured by the barker s bellow to perhaps win poison-green stuffed pooch for their pains What did these thousands seek9 Excitement7 Surely not because the essence of a fair changes only minutely from one year to the next And if you've seen one you've seen them more or less Eureka' That's it' Are all these patrons seeking stability in a transient time1' Are they comforted by the sameness of the exhibition9 Perhaps it's like slipping on a pair of battered shoes once a year they're even but so darn com fortable because you know exactly where you stand in them If that's the case the Exhibition Board can rest easy initiative and originality are not wanted Even a sour non-lover of exhibitions like myself cannot refrain from commenting on the noticeable improvements in the 74 show Village was the best thing in the whole fair im aginative using local talent with something going on almost all the time great bigger encore next year please Playgoers 'perils of Pnscilla' was a broadly melodramatic gem The RCMP display was educational diverse and pleasantly low-key Leslie thank the was NOT present providing a welcome respite after 11 months of his ever-present mug on television Research Station horticultural display look Ma live plants with roots even was interesting so that s what Russian Thistle looks like More of the above next and maybe a grump like me might stay a little longer at the fair LADY'S SUIT FAILS ATHENS Lady Amalia widow of the British discoverer of has lost her long battle to retain her Greek taken away by the former regime of George Papadopoulos Ann Landers Forthcoming marriages Dear Ann I need some answers on adultery Can you help me9 You've heard the story many times After 38 years of marriage the husband has an affair with a young girl The marriage has been generally speaking They have well ad- justed independent children The wife has kept herself attractive and interesting The husband insists he has never loved anyone but her In spite of all the hus- band thinks his little fling was not such a terrible thing He wants his wife to excuse him on the grounds that all his friends and co workers have had affairs and nobody was hurt Question Should I accept this and make the best of it7 How many times should a wife and How can she be sure he means it when he says he is through playing around9 I am very much in love with my husband and will do whatever is necessary to save my marriage if you think it's worth saving Tormented Dear I hate to sound like a broken but here I go again. Ask yourself this question my life be better or worse without In other what are YOUR alter- natives9 My hunch is you'd better hang in there and let your hus- band know you are really will- ing to forgive and forget And be sure you forget about what it was you forgave him for Is alcoholism ruining your Know the danger signals and what to do.
