dance. Ned puts his numbers over
in typical darky fashion for he is
a real Southern boy and has made
a first hand study of his character.
Admirers of dancing will find
much to please them in Dance

seen in this sumptuously staged
revue. There are three young wo
men and two personable young
men in the company. Dance Whirls

"The Kid," consisting of songs and
talk. Miss Mitchell does an inter
