We hear that our comment on the
“Dumb Bell Frolic” last week did
”ot ai’ree with the sentiment of some
In our little item it was not the in
tention n the least to reflect on the
party selecting the name of the
“Frolic” as the club fembers voted
for the selection. The postponement
of the "Frolic” was too bad—wheth
er necessary or not, we don’t know.
But naturally, when hearing of the
postponement, the public in conver
sation referred to the club members
as “Dumb- Bells”, a very unrefined
if not vulgar name to apply to an or
ganization supposed to possess a
certain amount of dignity. The sug
gested frolic was to be a fun making
jolly, comical show and the entertain
ment of that nature could have as
sumed the name very appropriately,
but the postponement of the enter
tainment gives a different view
point and the “Dumb Bell’’ proved
a boomerang. But let’s have the “big
time” regardless of name, as it’s the
final result we are after. In the se-
elcting contest, the one suggesting
the name of "Dumb Bell Frolic” did
very well, and selected a winner, as
proven by the advertising derived by
numerous remarks and comments.
