In this chapter, Clark Terry describes his second encounter with Turk and his gang, following their dissociation after their commitment to the show. It was at this time that he was offered a second chance to be associated with Turk and his gang, as part of a small carnival that traveled in several trucks but was at that time stationary in Hattiesburg for a few months. This meant that he would have a place to stay, wash and eat. The money was tight and the carnival was to come to an end soon. All that Clark was left with was the option to travel back to St. Louis in Mr. Suggs' truck. Finally he made it back to St. Louis and was surrounded by businesses, a movie theater, and a church.
