"Mr. Kellner called me in October of 1976 saying the three elephants were for sale so I talked with Kenneth Feld and they made a deal. I sent Gary Jacobson up to the show and he brought them back to the Ringling Park. Here they are with new names "Sid", "Louie" and "Juno" making the march in Portland, Ore. in 1978 with the Blue Show with "Major" and "Charlie" behind them." //Buckles Woodock
