    On Monday, February 4, the Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle school gym was filled with a crowd of preschool through eighth graders. They were all gathered to watch the fabulous Chinese Acrobats. The NCEMS Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) arranged and paid for the acrobats to perform for the school. The cost was $625.50 and a bargain for all of the great entertainment provided. Mrs. Courtney Carpenter, who is president of the PTO, said that they got the acrobats from the Bureau of Lectures in Lawrence, Kansas.
   

    The main announcer said that in China, they hand pick each acrobat at the age of five to begin training for the group. The training can be long, hard, and painful, but brings fame and money to the entertainers. There were two young men and two young women performing contortionist and hula hoop tricks for the crowd.  The crowd seemed to like the hula hoop tricks the most because they received the most applause. The acrobats performed for about 45 minutes and the students enjoyed the break from class.

     "It was cool to watch them," said Owen Carpenter.
