Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THt lETHBHIDCt HEHAID Thundny, November 30, 1971 East businessmen start own three ring crcus Kitchener-Waterloo Reeonl KITCHENEH, Ont. A group ol Kilchcncr-Water- loo businessmen is putting to- gether a three-ring circus with the emphasis on a Cana- dian theme, a clean, fanily- shmv image and an honest deal for sponsoring service clubs. Canadian Circus Inc., owned, managed and directed entirely by Canadians, al- ready "has been booked [or an initial-season six-week tour of Ontario and Quebec, starting with a Sept. 5-9, 1973. engage- ment at Montreal's Paul Sauve Arena. That first season will take the circus, which to date has lined up 90 per cent of its acts, from Thunder Bay to Quebec City, and may be ex- panded by another two to ihreo weeks. Rfjss Marshall, a former broadcaster and local pro- moter personal circus experience, is president of the newly-formed circus which will maintain business offices in Kitchener while housing and rehearsing its acts in Sar- j asou, Fla. Mr. Marshall said in an in- terview that of most of the acts will be performed by Americans, since Canadi- ans have no history in the field. The headline act will be The Coronas, a family of f'vc rial performers who also oc- cupy an honorary position on the circus board of directors as artistic advisers. Mr. Marshall said that if a USE CHRISTMAS SEALS FIGHT TUBERCULOSIS, CHRONIC BRONCHITIS, ASTHMA AND EMPHYSEMA permit can be obtained this act will launch a publicity drive at the start of the lour with a crossing over the Niag- ara gorge on the high wire. Such a feat was first per- formed in 1859 by the Great Blondin, an ancestor of the Czech-born Coronas. In all, the Canadian Circus will feature just under 30 acts in 50 different production numbers, In addition to dogs, horses and monkeys, Uiere will be 53 animal performers, including nine elephants. Mr. Mai-shall himself will be ringmaster, and Frank Varga of Kitchener will be the producing clown, the individ- ual who works out the rou- tines for the funny men of the circus. Another Canadian Involved in the production end is David J. McLaren, a young area rock musician who will director of music. A drummer End vocalist, he will head a five-member circus band and iyill be updating the tradi- tional circus music to make it more appealing to today's youth. He expects that all but the organist in (he band will be Canadians. Mr. Marshall said it took "approximately to get Canadian Circus off the ground and we will have a weekly operating cost of about but a little lighter Almost the same size. Well, not quite. The squash weighs over 30 pounds and old Jennifer Raivson only 28. She is 3G inches tall and the hanana squash a mere 27.

When the director of Tashkent's large pedagogical institute died a couple of years ugo, officials proposed to accord him the higli honor of burial in Uie communist cemetery reserved for out- standing political and social lealers. But his family refused, insisting instead on burial in the Uzbek cemetery with a Moslem IH- lah chanting prayers. One evening last month at a restaurant in Bukhara, a young man with a flair for mod- ern fashions collapsed into a chair, impa- tiently ordered a beef dinner plus Jour fried eggs, and hungrily devoured it all. Later, he explained that, during the daytime, peo- ple in his family were observing the month- long Moslem fast of Ramadan. Other edu- cated young Uzbeks said the same. Three teen-aged boys, sitting on a park bench near the magnificent blue-domed Is- lamic monumer.tT of Samarkand, told a foreigner they wera Moslems, evincing none of the normal Soviet liesitancy to acknow- ledge religious affiliation. The visitor, in- trigued, asked which holiday was most im- portant for local people, expecting them to cite the anniversary of the Bolshevik revolu- tion on Nov. 7. But first one boy and then another said this year the most important holiday fell Nov. 8 the Id El-Fitr, the great Islamic feast marking the end of Ram- adan. Three minor incidents, but indicative of the hold that Islamic customs have among the people of Uzbekistan, probably the most economically-developed republic in Soviet Central Asia. "Nowhere in the Soviet Union is the In- fluence of religion stronger than in Central said a young Soviet scientist, himself an avowed atheist. "The Islamic influence is very powerful." The observation Is borne out by periodic press articles attacking "religious super- stitions" or by public demands of Sharaf F. Kashidov, the Communist leader of Uz- bekistan, among others, lor greater efforts to "overcome religious survivals" because "a section of the population still carries out religious ceremonies." A half century of Soviet rule has wrought great changes in Uzbekistan. Widespread public education has replaced near-total illi- teracy. Clear, water is generally available in place of the stagnant reservoirs that in czarist days were breeding grounds for ty- phus and other diseases. Extremes of wealth and poverty have been narrowed. The Soviet era has brought Industrializa- tion. During the Second World War, especial- ly, when industry was evacuated from Euro- pean Russia to escape the advancing Nazi forces, Tashkent and its environs were among the major beneficiaries. Nowadays, gold, coal, natural gas, textile goods, rolled metal, cement, synthetic chemicals, and agri- cultural machinery are produced here. Ex- ports go to 80 countries. Some Western schol- ars regard Uzbekistan's growth rate as more impressive than those of neighboring Afghanistan, Iran or Turkey. 1973 Dodge Colt. Little but loaded.
