A deviation from the Cecil policy during the last few weeks was announced Thursday by Manager Tom Arthur with the booking of a great stage unit, the "Darktown Scandals," rather than the usual five act vaudeville performance which has been the feature of North Iowa week-end entertainment. This attraction is said to be the fastest and flashiest all-colored revue on tour this season. Mae West of Harlem. The company is headed by a recording artist and blues singer, Ida Cox, styled the "Mae West of Harlem." Other artists appearing are Ned Stanfield, "The King of the Ivories," the Dixianna Troubedor Sextette with "Harmony Plus," and the 12 "Boogy-Woogy" girls. Hot Rhythm. The Cotton Pickers furnish hot, low-down rhythm.

On the screen will be "Chinatown Squad" with Lyle Talbot, Valerie Hobson, Hugh O'Connell, Andy Devine and Leslie Fenton.
