The young dancers captured the
fancy of the spectators as they
went through their fast paced and
varied routines. The "Star of

as the applause of the crowd, and
the more . advanced dancers were
heartily received. Mr. and Mrs
Paul Armstrong, the dame direc
tors, performed a popular Bill
Robinson style stairway dance.

strong dance group that President
