THE BAKERSFlELD CALlFORiSlAN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1933 "Follies of 1933" Proves to Be Hilarious Frolic at Club : A'LL the lucky people who tuned In •AX on tho htlatjlouti broadcast of uncensored fun at tho'annual high jinks of the Unkersfleld Woman's Club lust night were caught up In a rollicking extravaganza of .song and dimoo highly splcod with nonsense. Tho jinks which will be known In club annals as "The Follies of 1933," was voted by those participating as ono of tho best in club history, and much praise was showored on Mrs. Thoron Tabor, general chairman, and Her ames for providing a riotous evening of laughter and fun. Tho jinks brought to light unsuspected Vocal and terpslchorean talents In club members who obligingly left their' dignity at homo. Mrs. Theron Tabor as "Maurice Amsterdam," presided as master or ceremonies. She Avns aided and abetted by Mrs. Randall Sylvester as "Ben - Bornle," leader of tho orchestra which' provided an unlimited amount of Individual talent during tho evening. Radio Stars ' Ono of the hits of tho show was tho appearance of "Kate Smith" (Mrs. Tod Mosler), In her theme song, "When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain," who was recalled for an encore. Al Jolson (Mrs. C. Homer Hopkins), singing "Sonny Boy," brought out a Jolsonlan tribute of tears from her audience; The Boswell Sisters (Mrs. J. M. Hughes, Mrs. C. Kitchen and Mrs. L. N. Rlley), scored In their trio number, "Fit as a Fiddle," sung In a traditional Boswelllan »• huddle at the piano; Mrs. A. II. McParland proved herself fit as a fiddler, appearing as "Vinson Sorey," the famed if temperamental violinist, and demonstrating versatility returned to ttho spotlight an "Rudy Vallee." Among other members of the talented orchestra that kept the air sizzling with jazz and entertainment during the extravaganza wero Mrs. Glen Wallace, who presided at tho piano as Irving Berlin; Mrs. W. S. Buchner, who took care of the drums In a. rhythmical way; Mrs. W. R. Carter, who worked at an accordion, and Mrs. L. N. Rlley, who played a ukulele. Burlesque Revue Originality, zest, and fast-stepping marked the burlesque revue presented by a bevy of pulchrltudinous chorus girls who were discovered to be club ushers. A Hula dancer, a Beverly Hill Billle, Pocahontas, a damsel with a tendency for Grecian arabesques, a Dutch dogger, a Spanish dancer, and an oriental snake dancer, piled up the merriment of the "follies" and their talents would make a J^cwis Carrol chorus green with envy. The dancers were Mrs. Oscar Winding, Mrs. Raymond Taylor, Mrs. Mel Brlttan, Mrs. Alberta Smith, Mrs. George Bimat, Mrs. Cecil Jones, and Mrs. Walter Jaynes. Tho act was arranged by Bert Easley. Mrs. Pearle- Smith presided at the piano, a duty she also fulfilled for some of tho other performers during the evening. The eternal triangle was Introduced Jn "The Fickle Professor." a pantomime with Mrs. K. W. Rich as the reader. A delicate romance blasted cruelly by the fickleness of the professor was unfolded with Mrs. H. A. Splndt us the erudite coed, Jano, who loses her man to the coy Maybelle Sweet (Mrs. Theron McCuen), Mrs. Harold Burt was the fickle pwofessor. Statues Present • Another pantomime provided its share of merriment when a damatlza- tlon of "Tho Cock, tho Mouse, and tho Little Red Hen," was presented under the direction of Mrs. M. F. Wllcox. Miss Mary Buss read tho story and those taking part wore: Mrs. C. L. Claflln, Mrs. Frank Haimes, Mrs. Chester O'Neill, and Mrs. J. W. Byfield. Mrs. J. It. Dorsoy as Fatlma tho Magician, ably aided by Mrs. Tod Mosler us tho Prince of Magic, got off quips on club members and gathered up laughter and applause.

"Opera" Given A modern version of "Romeo and Juliet," sung Mrs. Mrs. Taber- ns Juliet and Mrs. A. B. Tieok as Romeo was another hit of tho show. Tho costuming was remarked upon as being particularly in approved grand opera tradition. Another grand opera act in burlesque that was popularly received was tho nursery rhyme Interpretation of the Toraador song, sung by Mrs. Chester O'Nuill, another member who surprised with unsuspected vocal talents. Mrs. Henry Gladstone as a torch singer won applause and was recalled for encores for her songs givun with professional zest. Mrs. Keith S. Mc- Ivee as the spirit of comedy set the evening in motion with a glad welcome in "Hello People." The goodnight signal was given by Mrs. P. J. Cuneo, whose costume hinted time to retire. ..
