SIGNING CIRCUS AGREEMENTS During the past fortnight the various circus managers have made considerable progress in advance details of their billing arrangements for the coming summer .

With many of them , however , the shows reached an amicable agreement but at no time was the as sociation officially recognized by more than one or two of the big shows . The Showmen s Association , made up of circus proprietors , conducted the campaign against the Association of Billposters . Last sea...
