Pacific Ave. and 28th Street, from II ajn. to 3 pja.

As Arabella Snider, chief in charge of publicity for the gang-buster event, said when she saw her paper, "My head fell right on the floor." So did ours until we discovered, by sleuthing, the wrong date had been furnished us (no fault of Arabella's) in one of those it- happens - in - every-family type series of mishaps and misunderstandings. We felt -Jy KHA MASTERSON TO.MOX- sorry for them, naturally, April V. but awfuliy glad to be "off the hook," being human. Reason we're making such a fuss about getting the date cleared up--we think it's a grand thing to have dubs pool efforts and produce one big event for charity. This is experimental, under guidance of Dames Club, and should be lots of fun. If affair goes wen tomorrow, look for more of the same all over town. If you read Sunday's cover page youTI recall that each club takes its share of proceeds for its own particular chosen philanthropy. Good shopping! Good eating! See you there. · · * SPEAKING OF charities!
