    Clown's mini-car trashed, returned

    They stripped it. Tore it to pieces.

    Delmer Jefferson of Des Moines got his clown car back this week, nearly two months after the miniature, flame-emblazoned tow truck vanished - trailer and all - from a parking lot at the Za-Ga-Zig Shrine in Altoona.

    A Shriner clown for 34 years, Jefferson had been confident that someone would find his pride and joy and return it. After all, he reasoned, what would thieves do with a clown car?

    They ruined it. Trashed it.

    "I didn't recognize it," said Jefferson, after a friend brought him the remains. "The seat is still there, but that's about it."

    The friend, Jefferson said, didn't think fast enough when a man in a truck pulled up and asked if he wanted to make a trade for some scrap mater- ial.

    But the friend had a hunch he was looking at the former clown car, so he made the trade and then broke the news to Jefferson.

    That wasn't funny at all.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
