MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 2 1S3U F I V E REVUE PROVES TO BE BIG HIT Pictures of Mohawks Also on Cecil Screen m Iowa News Flashes. Charlie Mack's Chatterbox Revue, with every act proving to be a great crowd pleaser, was presented at the Cecil theater Wednesday night before a near capacity audience. The revue will conclude its appearance in Mason City Thursday night. The show was nicely balanced with an equal share of dancing, songs, comedy, acrobatics, an animal act, and music furnished by the Musical Vagabonds, whose theme song was the song which swept the country some time ago, "The Music Goes 'Round and 'Round." In one of the high lights on the vaudeville program Claude DeCarr and his canine protege, "Spotty," were co-starred. DeCarr performs various acrobratic stunts and Spotty imitates his every deed.

Act Goes Over. A comedy act, Ann and Charlie Howard, went over with a great measure of success. A new high mark in humor is reached when the duo performs a burlesque of a French Apache dance in unique manner. The Capps brothers and their sister, Dolly, feature the dancing of the brothers, Earl and Eddie Capps, and bits of vaudeville variety. The Capps appeared at the North Iowa fair as part of a stage unit at one of the most recent fairs. Billed as the "Sorority Songstress- es," the three Doyle sisters lend their voices to harmonious blends of popular music, fashioned in a manner similar to that made famous by the Boswell sisters. The Doyle sisters are former NBC artists. Frank and Pete Frazier give a study in grace, skill and strength in a show of the perfection of acrobatic fm- esse. They are outstanding gymnasts. Three Star Picture. A three star picture, "Love Before Breakfast," adds to the well rounded program. Carole Lombard and Preston Foster give their unique version of love making throughout the movie. Of particular interest to local sports fans are the pictures of the Mason City-Ames state championship game played at Drake field- house in Des Moines Saturday in which the Mohawks lost. Also shown in the Iowa News Flashes are posed "shots" of the Ames squad and its coach and of Capt. Henry "Hun" Hert and Howard Stoecker of Mason City. Operating Costs of Insane Hospital at Mt.
