PAGE POUR DISPATCH- DEMQCaRAT, UKIAH, CALIFORNIA. BV^ck Face Revue Fast And Funny The Saturday Afternoon club deserves a grand piano, and if it would promise more entertainment like tlie Blackface Revue Saturday night it's likely the public would underwrite one without delay. Our uhofticial academy award goes" to Judge Lilbum Gibson, a flnislied comedian who had to slow down his patter to let the laughs go by. But then there was Jack Goudge singing "Nobody" in an inimitable fashion that kept the applause ringing through three curtain calls. And the father-son combination of Bob O'Day and son Michael would take top billing on any circuit. In the never-to-be forgotten class is the deadpan ex>- pression on young Mike's face while he shuiTles, and well.— you can't watch his feet for looking at his eyes. Henry Spurr was a distinguisi^- gdj tuxedo-clad interlocutor in the midst of black faces, black mop heads and shufflin' feet. There was a zany, cowboyish trio of blackfaces from Willits billed as Allee-Gregory-Reitzel. The harmonica player with them was Mr. Weber. And there was Stanley Lance, singing Chloe and leaping off the stage to surprise and confound Mrs. Nelmes Smith in the audience, who took it in stride and went gracefully into the clinch. The show opened with a triumphal march down the aisle led by three Boy Scouts carrying the colors. The audience rose for Star Spangled Banner and the st^ar- spangled show followed with J. D. Branson, a grizzled Uncle Tom, placing the card announcements f6r each act, which were artistically lettered by Mrs. Alex Tregoning. Les Miller was able accompanist^to the singing and played a solo arrangement of Lydia that was, excellent. Gene Corbett and Ewert Mitchell, in a group of duets were good, and so was the sweeping bow with which they ended each number. A good word goes to each of the end men, James Lindsey, Ted Barker, Harley' Bronson, Stanley Lance, Jack Goudge and Bob O'Day and to Jeff Branson, Lou Jordan, Robert Jardine (who should'na rolled his trousers up and revealed those white, white shins) to Peter Frati, Ewert Mitchell and Alex Tregoning. ^ Don Hoover assisted in production and Mrs. Smith set the lively pace for the show with an opening announcement. We hope they made a pot of money. WOMEN'S SOCIAL iWOMGEUB NEWS Celebrate Golden Wedding MH. AND MHS. ROBERT HUTCHISON (s^a^lding back of the wedding cake) who celebrated their Golden Wedding in Si.

Unexpected Skit Roles Music And A Movie Celebrate Birthday A musical evening was entertainment when Betty Arlene Greeott observed her 16th birthday Friday night at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Grceott, 544 North Spring street. With five friends, whose interests, like hers are musical, Betty attended The Hagan Girl show at th^ high sclwol and afterwards thex «imade records of piano, vocal and birthday greeting selections.

TO MENLO PARK Mr. and Mrs. Harold Oi'r, of Eastiick street, motored to Menlo Park for the weekend with Mrs. John lUiss, Some prominent people stepped out of character into character roles for which they were peculiarly unfitted when Lions club members and their ladies observed their annual - spring frolic in Southworth's restaurant at a dinner meeting last Saturday night, April 17. Edward Eversola was the instigator of the skit in ^hich Mrs. Adolph Parducci, Sr., was cast as the erring daughter of Mrs. Harold Ashton and Ferd Vallette. The skit involved a trial for a mythical manslaughter which occurred when the juvenile delinquent played by Mrs. Parducci went riding with a, imbibed demon rum, drove his car, and struclc a non-existent victim. James Busch portrayed the role of judge; Chaplin Williams "was the district attorney. Beverly Broaddus was surprised to find himself cast as sheriff. Forrest Hughes was a witness and Frenchy Sanchez was another, a vacillilat- ing fellow who could be bought off. Mrs. Tom Poulos whose kindliness is well established was also surprised to find herse\f playing the role of the village gossipmonger. None of the players had been warned in advance of tlie impromptu parts they were to portray and it was obviously some relief when the whole thing turned out to be the brain .child of a mental incompetent. Harold Zimmerman was chairman for the party, assisted by W. H. Brown. Carl Doubeneck, president, called for members to introduce tlieir wives and guests. Dancing followed the dinner for which the restaurant was closed to the public. Valerie Crawford Has 8th Birthday Party Valerie Crawford, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Crawford, celebrated her eighth birthday with a party on Saturday, April 17, at the Crawford home on Mill street.
