Resident ballerina Velta Cer-nonok, Today's history Today is Friday, Dec. 12, the 346th day of 1969. There are 19 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1745, the first chief justice of the United States, John Jay, was born in New York City. On this date-in 1792, 22-year-old Ludwig von Beethoven paid 19 cents for his first music lessonfrom Franz Joseph Haydn, in Vienna. In 1894, Japanese troops invaded Korea. up a new and exciting phase of life for these two it has also brought much joy and laughter into other lives. Their most recent appearance was Sunday afternoon at the Standard Products Company Christmas party for 600 children. As Bo Bo and Do Do the clowns they thrilled both the children and the adults with their capers and their lively dialogue. The ability to don gay costumes and write their own sketches has provided many programs throughout the area before many types of groups. This has been going of for the past three years with more requests for personal appearances as word got around of the hilarity these two talented gals project. Their repertoire includes a "Fish ala Pouf" which is a hysterical sketch on cooking the French way with wine; "The Bride's Dilemma" the skit about a young, inexperienced bride who learns to cook by television: "Seven Steps to Beauty" or how to attain instant beauty; Bo Bo and Do Do the Clowns; "Peter and the Wolf"; "The Old Folks" and their most recent characters "The Astronauts" which they brought down the house with at the recent "Hi Neighbor" produced by the Playmakers.

Her love for writing is a great asset in writing the sketches they present as a comedy team. Both Bev and Sue are members of Port Clinton Play-makers Civic Theatre. Bev holds the office of secretary in the organization this year. "Making people laugh" was the answer both gave as their reason for keeping as ac tive as they do in performing for groups. As they give their programs in costume such as "Peter arid the Wolf the children, get so carried away with the rnaic of the story as it is reenacted by the Catawba pair, laugh and sometimes scream as excitement mounts At a certain time when tin-Wolf is in danger of becoming a prisoner they call out quietly to him when they think he can get away. It is all in good natured fun and taken in stride by the performers who love the dramatic and warm response of their youthful audience. In the past three years appearances have been made to every school in Ottawa County, hospital groups, women's clubs, the cooking school sponsored last year by the former Daily News, the Riverview School for Retarded Children, Head Start and to Magruder Hospital.
