Cousins from Switzerland, Rene Kathriner and Franz Gasser, are being billed in Australia as "The Daring Swiss Boys" for their flying trapeze and slack rope circus acts. They came to Australia in 1961, joined a circus for two years and then returned to Switzerland for an eighth month holiday. They came back to Australia last February and re-joined the circus, with which they travelled 15000 miles a year.
