HE Meletean Vaudeville is an aII-college entertainment presenteo annually by
the staff to help defray the expenses of publishing the yearbook. This year
a very high class show was presented in the college auditorium, Wednesday evening,
February twentieth, under the student management of Lyle Lamphere and LeRoy
Luberg w1th Miss Latta as adVISor.
Originality, novelty, and variety were the keynotes 0f the entertainment which
consisted of ten acts, each introduced by Lyle Lamphere who acted as master of
ceremonies. The program was opened by two musical numbers played from the
stage by the local dance orchestra, King Midas Band, composed of Hoyt Johnson,
Charles Conselman, Al Hawkinson, Arnold Kuss, Harold Segerstrom, George
Thomas and Archie Thompson. The curtains parted fo-r the second act to show
the two bold pirates, Wroe Wolfe and Gordon Page, in a series of sea ballads and
A chorus of dancing girls gave two highly enjoyed acts, iiThe Varsity Drag"
and ttRoses of Yesterday." The chorus consisted of Florence Bolier, Marianne
Cudd, Vivian Elliott, Maurita Grorud, Joyce Hawkins, Ida Johnson, Stella Knut-
son, Clarice Olson, Jane Simonson, Elna Stone; Viola Swenson, Ariel Towers,
Victoria Niemcek, Muriel Peterson, and Winifred Waters, assisted by Bernice
Sutherland and directed by Miss Curran, Claudia Vassau, and Vivian Chinnock.

SECON D CHILDHOOD
A rollicking farce, "Second Childhood? was presented by Miss Schlosser in
December. The play with its absent-minded professor, its elixir of life, its
several lost and misplaced babies furnished some of our stars with their best op-
portunity to play pure comedy.
Jack Davison as Professor Relyea surpassed all his records for effective play-
ing, and gave a marvelous exhibition of a frantic, befuddled man who unwittingly
turns his best friend and his daughter'to babies by administering his elixir of life.
Gordon Page as the important General and Gordon Grimm as the slightly be-
wildered assistant were very good leads. Margaret Fox and Bernice Sutherland
as the suspicious, doubting women of Relyeak family, Joyce Wiberg as the
vociferous neighbor, and Foster Mitchell as the dignified judge furnished strong
support to the cast. The play was presented in River Falls for the benefit of the
annual Poultry Show of the Department of Agriculture.
It was so enthusiastically received here, that the Davison-Norseng company
took the cast to Cumberland on November 23.

The Anglo-Persians, Marshall Norseiig and Thomas Runkle, Hoated in on
their magic carpet, found George Thomas waiting for them at the piano, and enter-
tained the audience with harmonious violin music and novelty stunts.
The second half of the program opened with a clever one-act play, uA Girl
to Order." The cast included Truman Glass, Archie Mueller, Foster Mitchell,
Gordon Page, Don Zwicky, and Maxine Blaine.
The uAll Americans" with their cavalry of hobby horses and troop 0f mus-
keteers provided a snappy football act that amused the entire audience. The line- -up
included Milton Berlin, Clifford Brooks, Wendell Claflin, Raphael Farrell, Law-
rence Larson, John MacDonald, Earl McLaughlin, and Kenneth Urquhart. The
"All Americans" were coached by LeRoy Luberg.
One of the most clever acts in the program was the one wherein iiThe Radio
Entertainers" showed exactly what goes on in a radio broadcasting station. Jack
Davison was the over-enthusiatic announcer. Archie Mueller, the janitor, broad-
casted as Madam Jeritza, the famous colorature soprano. The twelve piece or-
chestra in tuxedos consisted of Hoyt Johnson, Charles Conselman, and George
Thomas in their shirt sleeves.
A spectacular and fitting close was the grand finale. A double quartet, con-
sisting of Ruth King, Marcella Oltman, Bernice Sutherland, Claudia Vassau,
Gordon Grimm, LeRoy Luberg, Ronald McNamara, and Benjamin West, sang
groups of college songs, followed by the entire cast in the new college song, "Sons
of River Falls."
