    The famous Moscow State Bolshoi Circus is now performing in the Japanese Capital - 50 human performers, 19 trained dogs, and 17 bears all appearing for the first time before a Japanese public.

    Prior to the first performance E. Eder, the circus chief, paid a visit to the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo, and when he left the circus was short of one performer - a trained bear, given to the Ueno Zoo by the Chairman of the Bolshoi Circus Headquarters in Moscow. Gift number cars.

    Well, hospitality in the Far East being what it is, the Director of the Ueno zoo stopped forward and he made gift Number two - an untrained bear, born in the Zoo only three months ago.
