There is no doubt that the lion reigns as the king of beasts, says Terrell Jacobs of Barnes its summer swing in the Chicago stadium. On the question, Jacobs who has broken over led to philosophize a little. The lion is king, says Jacobs, because be-cause the Creator made him to be king by supplying him with a great bushy mane underneath his neck which prevents other beasts from ripping rip-ping his jugular vein while ho claws them to pieces. Expert mat he is, Jacobs has had his close calls in the cage and he can show S38 stitches on his body to prove it Where the scarred flesh is depressed, that's where ho was bitten, and where it's Jagged, (hat's where he was clawed. No less than 54 wounds were Inflicted In-flicted up in Minneapolis, Minn., where a leopard, frightened by the collapse of a wall of the arena, leaped from its stand and mauled Jacobs around before it was driven off. On another occasion, one lion came at him in Peru, Ind., and three others Joined In to clamber atop of him before one cat came to his rescue res-cue and snapped at his attackers. "No, it wasn't any case of loyalty," loyal-ty," he adds. "The rescuer just saw a good chance to rip into some of the others it didn't like." jCats Are Not LoyaL Cracking his whip and firing his .38 revolver, Jacobs enters the huge circular cage to get the roaring and snarling cats to climb up onto their stands and sit, and then clamber down to lie down in a cluster before be-fore him. While shaggy "Sammy" walks a tight-rope and rolls a barrel to him, "Sheba" rises on her haunches to follow Jacobs in a ponderous pon-derous waltz. Born to the circus, the stocky, muscular mus-cular Jacobs is the coolest person in the house when he steps into the cage. Precisely because of the danger dan-ger which confronts him with each performance and the prime importance impor-tance of headwork in handling beasts, he must remain cool to assure as-sure his own safety. Young Ones Easily Injured. When it comes to taming lions and tigers, headwork plays the chief role, Jacobs says. By studying the antics of a cat, a trainer can obtain a knowledge of his peculiarities and then strive to counteract them. For instance, when Jacobs first sought to teach a lion to roll a barrel to him, the cat would slide off the sloping end and upset it Failing to get the animal to push the barrel ahead, Jacobs then fastened an angle iron flange around the center to cut into the dirt and hold it straight In that way the lion was taught to keep an even course. In training lions, Jacobs starts KITTEN . . .

Cody, the colorful scout and showman who became world famous as "Buffalo Bill," was born in Scott county, Iowa, in 1846, 100 years ago. He died in 1917, and is buried near Denver, Colo. . Cody began his career in 1860 as rider for the Pony Express, later joining the Union army as a cav alry scout during the Civil war. During the construction of the Union Pacific railroad across the I nlains west of Omaha, be contract 1 HWWUf'l 538 Stitches Clawed and Bit Brothers circus Which opened 500 beasts in 26 years, is even Dut with cats over two years ot age sine cubs up to two possess deli cate,,, spinal vertebrae, injury to which may result in permanent kidney kid-ney trouble.

First, the cats ara taught to walk down the ramp, with a collar and chain being applied to animals in cases where they are slow to respond. re-spond. Once the lion has learned ta walk down the runway, he is next drilled to take his seat, with from six weeks to three months required for this training. Finally, the animals ani-mals are taught to mix. Some Are Good, Some Bad. Broken in at 2, the lions attain the full maturity at 7, and are retired from the show at 12, though they may live to be 18 or 20. They are very much like people, Jacobs said, some being good, some bad, some brieht others slow. While only so much can be accomplished with animals, dally year-round sssoci atlon with them enables a trainer to perceive their capabilities more closely and discover new qualities for exploitation. Jacobs' attachment to a menagerie menag-erie when he first joined the circus led to bis employment as an apprentice ap-prentice to a Swiss lion-tamer, and the experience he acquired permitted permit-ted himto take over the act when his boss returned to the old country. coun-try. Starting with S lions, he stead ily broadened his act, the high point arriving when he appeared with 190 animals in one of Johnny Weismul- Ier's "Tarzan" motion pictures. American Circus Is 100 Years Old The great circuses of America are on tour again, just as they have done for more than 100 years. And again they include equestrian exhibitions, gymnastic and acrobatic acro-batic performances, with variety added by the quips and fooling of the clown. The modern circus dates from the close of the 18th century- Traveling circuses were heard of before 1830 in both England and America, and after 1850 assumed great dimen sions. Among the earlier ones were Hengter's, Sanger's, and Barnum and Bailey's. Col. William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) and his Wild West show traveled all over the world and gave performances before the crowned heads of Europe. Now Big Business. The construction of permanent circuses, known as coliseums and hippodromes has given new life to the circus, furnishes a variant on the itinerant -show ot enormous dimensions which moves about the country on special railway trains. Barnum and Bailey's circus is still in existence, and along with Barnes Bros., Beatty's, and others, continues the grand tour every summer. The 1940 season is expect, ed to be one of the biggest in history, his-tory, since most circuses were unable un-able to travel during the war years. Wild animals, most of them trained to perform for the crowds, continue to be the foundation ot most circuses. ed to furnish the laborers with meat Known throughout the West Cody had a ranch near North Platte, Nebr., fend later went to Wyoming where be' helped establish the Shoshone Sho-shone irrigation project The town of Cody, Wyo., is named for him. Most people win remember Cody, however, for his great Buffalo Bill's Wild West show. A parade always preceded each showing, with Cody riding at the head of it bis long white hair about bis shoulders. i - ' OHIO f ABMEBS DONATE WHEAT Farmers of Medina county, Ohio, are giving a bushel or more of wheat to actregate enough to feed an average family tor 3d days, with the spirit that a farmer will de privo himself to do a kindness which be will not "sell" tor a S0-cent-a-bushel bonus.
