Did you know the London Gazette is the oldest continuously running newspaper in the world? The first number of the bl-weekly Oxford Gazette ficmsed by Lord Arlington and written by Henry Muddiman was published on Nov. 16, 1665. With the publication of the 24th number (Monday, Feb. S, 1966, old style), the name was changed to the London Gazette and has appeared twice a week ever since u an offlc/sl organ of the Cv't. Lord Arlington became a member of Parliament in le61 and, during his career, had cons/datable influence on British Domestic and Forei policy. The main influence was considered to be the uninterrupted confidence of Charles II. Henry Muddiman had been actlve as a wrlUr of newsletters of the times and in 1659 began his "Parliamentary In- telligence," later named the "Kingdom's Lqtelencer," which was published until Aug., 1663. When fresdom of thepress cameabout in 1641, the English periodicals contained domestic and foreign news. In 1936 there was a Roosevelt Hotel in Cloverdale and the manager Laroy T. Nelson was str/cken with a throat infection and died at age 45. Porters "lent Show By shuttle bus to the World's tallesttrees appeared May 30 and featured music and vaudeville. Now that is someth tlt has with time  with those grand old circuses that earne by rail in the early morning l's. They hed loe kido to water the elephants and other exotic animals that most people never saw except in pictures. A giant parade preceded the openinS of the show with clowns galore, a giant caliope operated by steam that played rousing tunes, cages fufi of ferocious- looking beasts that paced the cqes as yompers gazed in fear at s reapactable distance holding tight to their fathers' hands, or clutching their mothers' skirts. Once in a while a llon would roar and the crowd would gasp and deal, Now it's more convenient than ever for pll{Fims to )-314t Redwood National Park to experience the awesome sight of the world's tallest fivinl thlns--graceful trees z7 feet h. Eight time a day, until September I, shuttle buses will carry visitors from the control, Park entrance headquarters ,000 at Orick to within a mile-and- or a-third of the Tall Trees Grove, first measured in 19 71-31-2t by the National Geographic RVICE Society. A leisurely downhill stroll then takes walking parties to the great Coast Redwoods, located in a sweepir bend of Redwood Creek. .Park rangers accompany the v/s/tars to explain the eeolo of redwoods, which {[row nowhere else in nature except coast. C, afifornla. Until la year, the trip was a 17-mile roundtrip hike. The first shuttle bus leaves Orick at 8:30 a.m., followed by hourly departures until 3:30 p.m. Final bus leaves the Redwcod Creek trailbead at 7:1S p.m. Fares are 11 for edults, SO cents for sere/ors, cents for youngsters 15 years and under.

The preserve includes three long-time state Parks, where travelers can camp under the redwoods for lm a nlt. Visitors enjoy forest  ferns and shrubs along the way.

Girls In colorful costumes adorned the backs of elephants as they swayed to-and-fro in the crowds while dark4tmed boys in turbans led them slor the main street. Mysterious covered wagons pulled by giant horses advertised the existence of people who were not normal In every respect, they were called freaks. "JoJo the dog4aced boy," "the alligator man covered with scales," "the tattooed man," "the fat lady," '*the thin man," "the bearded lady," and other ab- normalities of the human race that saw fit to dlaplay their virtues or misfortunes. I recall the "stone man" who was a p,-tactly {xr,,ed man, very dead and very cold looking and creepy to a chUd as he gazed in awe at this phenomenon. We watched as muscular rouse-houts, with giant hammers, drove in tent stakes sometimes to weird chanting and rhythm of foreign nature. As the big top was raised, people lined up for tickets to get a good seat so they could watch all three rings and the performance of the death dofylns ammllsts, some with no nets. Clowns that drove out in tiny autos with an endless stream of tbem emerging from the confines of that auto, a band playing rousing ttmse in their high-plumed hats, some out of key, but we d/dn't care, the excitement was over- whelmina. The sm of the animals and the straw, roasting popcorn, balloons flying high, cracker-jacks with its surprir.es was eagerly sought, and finally the [[rand finale came when all the people paraded the  and a tired and weary crowd reluctantly went home to their quiet towns dreaming of next year when the circus would come to town. The next morning all to be seen was an empty lot and railroad aiding where yesterday the magic of the circus stood, it seemed as If a dream. Those were the days-and that was a [[rand time to five. Posters stayed on .buildings for months until the rains came and they slowly faded, but you could still remember the grandeur of the circus until next summer when the call went out--"Circus is coming," and ote more the lot would come alive. In-January 19445, The U.S. Hotel added a new room, known as "Charlans" and was operated by Charles Fowler, former chef of the Matson Lines. In 1947 the famous old hotel burned, like the pasetn of an old friend, sh, cruel fate-t'was ever thus...
