The lobster colored one invented two new dance steps that were hummers and In voice and facial expression lie was at bis best. Pink's song "It Looks Like a Big Night For Me," was spice, and pepper from the first bar. Plnklf was there a thousand. Clem Wilson's excellent voice was heard to Kplendid advantage In "The Glorious Highball" which was most artistically rendered. His number was one of the most appreciated of the evening. Likewise Bob Smith, who possesses a fine tenor voice, rendered "Sam Land" in most acceptable fashion. The number was very musical. Ollie Ciotchett rendered the bass solo "When the Bells In the Light House Ring Ding Dong." He was forced to respond to an encore. Ollie's voice was fine. "Oh, Come, My Lou," was the song her was one of the best features of the show. The grand finale "In Grandma's Day" was sung by Clem Wilson. The spot light was thrown on the picture of an elk on the drop curtain and with the singing of the number, the picture was changed to a plantation scene. The chorus accorded Mr. Wilson excellent support. The second, part was made up of four acts, every one of, them a hit. n i "The Death of the Gladiator" was the featured number and it was a roar of laughter from the very start, Alfred Harrell, Elmore King and Jimmy Stone were the principals, the former In the role of a. Roman Senator, the last named the daughter "Penny Ante," and King as the Gladiator. The lines were skillfully written and the miinner in which up-to-date slang was thrown in with the actions and attitudes typical of the days when tunics j and helmets were all the fashion, could not but cause hearty laughter. Miller and Draper In the comedy sketch "The Minstrel Man aud the Porter," presented a high class vaude-1 vllle act. They are excellent coin-} edians. They ended the act with the j "St. Louis Tickler" neatly sung and danced. Frank W. Robinson, the mono loguist, had the real nobby make up. And If some of his jokes were not neatly. Frank Munzer's high kicking was little short of wonderful. The performance will be repeated tonight. There will be new acts, songs and jokes.
