The world loves a clown, and Monty King is no exception. Monty, a pediatrics patient at Southeast Missouri Hospital, was among youngsters entertained at a Christmas party this week by the Rev. E.C. Brasington, part-time clown and full-time pastor at First Presbyterian Church here. He had taken part in a workshop in church recreation not too long ago, and since that time has put what he learned to happy use. "When I'm in clown makeup and driving a car, I drive very carefully," he said. "People start staring and forget to pay attention. It's especially fun to pull up to a stoplight next to a car with a child in it. The child, of course, gets excited, and the parents can't figure out why, until they look my way, too."
