A PROPER CIRCUS HAS PACHYDERMS AND A TRAIN.

Circus Spectacular had planned to bring its pachyderms to the Northern Illinois Convocation Center on March 4.   The presence of animal acts in circuses does not appeal to everybody, and some of the university, now including the Student Association, went on record as objecting to the circus's presence on campus.  Circus Spectacular have now cancelled the stand, citing "inclement weather and travel conditions."  I recognize that it is still winter in the Midwest, and winter gives no sign of wanting to go away.  The show, however, is making a jump from either Cincinnati or Green Bay to Milwaukee for weekend appearances, with the one-night stand in DeKalb.  The trainmaster of a traditional thirty-car show would be unimpressed with so many idle days between showings.
