    Full titles read: "Pathetone presents GRIFF the Bubble King and Clown in "A Little Light on Balancing."

    L/S's and M/S's of Griff dressed in clown uniform. He gives a very confusing speech about as to what an electrical lamp is (He holds a small one in his hand). He then demonstrates his trick of sliding the small lamp backwards and forwards along a a thin piece of wood. He slides it slowly down and then back. After doing it several times he mistakenly turns the pole upside down amazingly the lamp is still balancing on the stick.
