I remember it was quite a thing to have an elephant herd that rivaled the Ringling Show.
We were with Garden Bros. Circus in Canada that year, my father working Dolly Jacobs elephants "Modoc", "Empress" and "Judy" and at one point we visited the Dailey Show playing nearby in Northern New York.
Looking at the herd I noticed the name on the breast strap of one big elephant and said to the attendant, "Gee! That "Jap" sure looks Old!" and he snapped, "Punk! If you was as old as she is you'd look pretty bad too!.....and someone said, "Shut Up Smokey, that's Bill Woodcock's son!
