Feb. 21 City r. Mason CHy, Clear Lake Globe-Gazette Lion's Club Has Fun With Music, Jokes CLEAR old minstrel typical of two generations ago was revived when the Clear Lake Lions Club put on its annual show. The first of a two night performance was given Monday at the high school before a crowd of aboul 300 persons. It proved to be a full evening of chuckles and laughs.

The most beautiful music was provided by two talented vocalists Helen Engen and Milo Hall, who sang "Getting to and "Second Star to the Right." Both showed the finesse of professiona singers. The women's trio, Betty Bick ford, Ann Erickson and Mrs. En gen also was much enjoyed. Thej sang "Lullaby of Broadway" and "Hello Young Lovers." When professional musicians gei together the best can be expected Engen, Don Lomen and Milo Hall had the ime of their lives singing a group of selections as the "Men of Note." The result was most satisfying. The end men in blackface with such names as "Twinkle Toes," 'Bones" and "Moonshine," played by Vin Minette, Allan Wind, Robert Ingersoll, Dr.

Ralph Winkle, Bob Stuart and Carroll Anderson, tried to outdo each other, poking fun at love, their fellow townsmen and human whimsies. The final story, "the one for the road" told by Minette was tops. With Keith McGowan, all dressed up in his white coat, as Mr. Interlocutor, the Jug Band and musical interludes by a chorus made up of Lions Club members and wives, the stage was set. Such appropriate selections as "Where in the World but in Ameri ca" and "There's No Business Like Show Business" were sung by the chorus.

The Swing Band, directed by Bob Logan, gave musical moments. The true spirit of the minstrel was felt when the Dixielanders band burs I forth merr "let go" some original dances. 3avid Traub played a medley of Tommy Dorsey numbers. Don Goranson, who introduced the show, said the proceeds will be used on purchase of Ihe permanent bleachers for the Lions Field. Producers and directors of the show Burgess Petersen and Harlan Reid.

Head ushers', "Bud" Hughes and Tom Neison added much humor as "warm up" men. They lected Mr. and Mrs. Jay Grimm as king and queen of the minstrel placing them on their thrones on the stage and giving them gifts before the show CARD OF THANKS I wish to thank everyone for the cards, gifts and flowers and the many kindnesses shown me and my family during my confinemenl with a broken ankle the past six weeks.
