branches of the engineering trade
since the beginning of the war. The
reason for this action la the proved ex

a very Inrge part of the country's pro

has been found that the rush to secure
options on materials by those who
were tendering for government con

real demands, and forced prices up to
quite fictitious levels.

DON'T think the black boys lu this picture represent a group of cannibals, even though they may tie dressed quite warlike. These boys are the mem
ber of Maimer's Kaffir Boy Choir, which J. H. Balmer has brought to America direct from South Africa. It is probably one of the most unique or
ganizations ever brought lo the west and will uudoabtedly cause nick comment when the boys give their concert at the Chautauqua. Each of
the boya poaataaaj a remarkable voice, and. although they cannot talk the English language, they sing English songs and sing them so they are un
derstood. Balmer spent many years among the tribes of Kaffirs and Hottentots of South Africa and says they are the most remarkable people of the world.
These lioys are graceful and manly and are as perfex-t physically as a human bring could be. The Katiirs arc unusually Intelligent and are anxious to learn
t lie ways of Uie white people. The Kaffir choir program is one of unusual interest, and whoever spends that evening at Chautauqua will carry away with
him a new conception of Africa and its possibilities.

Work. From the life work of an architect
to that of a circus clown is a long
jump, but one which was made by
Ab Johnson, principal clown with the
John Robinson Circus which comes to
Pendleton on June 14. for two per
formances For fifteen years he was n
past master of blue prints in his Chi
cago office. He was very successful
and he drew the plans and superin
tended the construction of many
buildings. One day a circus came to
Chicagb, and, like hundreds of others,
he thought he would have to go and
carry the children. He watched the
clowns and underneath their make
up he saw the seriousness with which
they worked. It Impressed him.
leaving the show grounds he be
gan to think about the clowns. He
went to the public library and dug up
books as faar back as those which
dwelt with the days of the circus in
the Boman Coliseum. He read about
Grimaldi and other ancient buffons
Then he begun to worg out stunts and
tricks. He placed them on paper and
developed them by stage. He found
a veteran clown who assisted him in
his work. Finally he got a Job with
a small circus at a still smaller sal
ary. But Johnson liked the work; that
of making others happy. The stunts
! he developed were really marvelous.
They were totally different from ordi
nary clown's stunts. A scout of the
John Robinson Circus saw Mr. John
son and immediately gave him a con
tract. For eight years he has been
"clownin' for a livin' " as Mr. John
son tersely expresses it and apparent
ly he is in love with the flapsticks.
It is a very difficult act that Mr.
Johnson can not get a burlesque of I
some kind on. Some of his stunts for
this year are: "The Suffragette Pa
rade"; "The Atlantic City Board
Walk," and "Broadway After Dark."
Mr. Johnson has fifty-one clowns as
sisting him in his work.
