Since the circus took up a five day stand Tuesday at Twenty sixth and Benning road N.E Washington audiences have known the Great Swanson only as a name on the circus program But at the 2:15 and 8 15 p m. perform ances today and tomorrow, Billy *hopes to change all that. He s tired of recuperating from a torn , neck muscle he injured during his act in Boston, where the circus played before coming to Wash ington. "This too long rest is no good. Billy said in the English he's been using only since March 28 when he arrived in this country from his native Germany. Hip Broken rive limes. But then 44-year-old Billy is a sophisticate when it comes to in juries resulting from 14 years of hanging himself. His left leg is three inches short er than his right because he's broken his left hip in the same place-five times. It seems the ropes for his act were installed while the tent canvas was shrunk from wet weather. Then the sun loosened the canvas and i^ dropped, so when the Great Swanson attached the 50-foot length rope to his neck and jumped from his 60-foot perch, he came to a stop on the ground instead of 10 feet above it. Twice the rope has broken. "Those times I broke my head, my knee and a bone in my fore head,' he said. Another time damp weather swelled the rope so it didn't slip out of a knot. The sud den jerk caused the 144-pound jumper to bite into his tongue. When the circus opened its sea son in New York this year, Billy's rope caught in a cleat on a circus pole. This tightened the noose before he had time to expand his iron-like neck. That's what causd his present injury. In Boston he was hurt in the same place after the rope got twisted on a steel cable. He s also broken his teeth. "The only thing I haven't broken." he said, “is my neck." Performer at 8. Once during a show in Berlin the noose pushed against the jug ular vein and Billy lost conscious ness during his five-minute sus pension in midair. His assistant.

Billy began performing in his father's circus in Germany as a tight-wire walker and acrobat on a bar with a group of others. “Then I wanted my own act so I remembered the strong neck 1 was bom with and put It to some use.” he said. "At first I just' Jumped from 3-foot heights Now I can jump from 75 feet in the air. but the circus tent is only 60 feet high, so I have to be satisfied with that. "You see. I m a man who likes to live dangerously. Some like to go to little inns for drinks But 1 just want to do my hangman's act for people.'
