The Ranch herd had been booked on the Orrin Davenport Shrine dates for the winter, the elephant "Joe" had been replaced by another dangerous elephant "Tony". Shortly after my dad returned home he received a telegram telling him to immediately fly to Wichita since "Tony" had downed Arky Scott in the car while unloading. My dad finished out the dates with a 4-act and the Ranch herd remained at that number from then on. Arky recovered and was back in business for the 1945 season. //Buckles
