This is his first engagement in this locality.

His previous successes have been throughout Texas in Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth, chiefly. Also in Shreveport, Minneapolis and Springfield, 111. Critics are high in their praise of his tones. But he never took a vocal lesson in his life, he tells. "I came by it naturally," he tells with his broad grin. "I always sang. When I was little I just sang and sang. When there was something I had to get out of my system I just got up and shouted it out, like this," he stood up and threw his chest forward. His expansion looked a couple of inches bigger than Jack Dempsey's. Como was set for an audition with Paul Whiteman when Freddie Carlone heard about him. Carlone engaged him at once and Como, when he heard Carlone's brand of music, signed up, despite the Whiteman audition. ; y 1 X fy-i "' J V'7 ' I PERRY COMO World's Fair in Chicago.

Try me Classlned Column for quick result U Where do YOU go from here? Where will you be . . . a year from now? Of course you expect just as much of the future as it is possible to attain.

In a year's time, you can save enough to make what you have today secure, in the event that your income should be cut off, until you can re-establish yourself.
