RENDEZVOUS [[advertisement]] THE NAME "SAVOY" IS EASY TO SAY THE PLACE "SAVOY" IS EASY TO LIKE You'll love it––everyone does! SAVOY BALLROOM World's Finest Ballroom Lenox Avenue and West 140th Street New York City *Newly Decorated* [[/advertisement]] IN AND AROUND NEW YORK fine performances of Rhythm Brown and his roller skates, and the Sandy Burns, George Wiltshire and Dusty Fletcher comedy trio. The young team, McClain and Ross, rate a great big hand. Back in Philly, they are fast becoming tap conscious through such brilliant terpsichorean artists as Derby Wilson and the Three Jacks. The City of Brotherly Love's popular Ubangi Club will feature Johnny Hudgins, Albert Pryme and the Three Drifters, among others; another ofay spot. Mammie Stanley, sis of Gabby's, showed great form as runner-up during the New York Women's tennis meet. She was last year's junior champ. Philadelphia has too become SHOWDOWN conscious and looks as if its populace will run Harlem a fast one for circulation honors. Smart move among our group was the recent opening of a Dance Studio by the still youthful Baby DeLeon, who ranked as an outstanding artist of the theatre. Harold Baker, formerly with the St. Louis Crackerjacks, is now hitting them high with Don Redmon. I, too, agree that it is a long time before the month rolls around, so ADIOS.

The Exclusive Hat Shops [[image: line drawing of hat-wearing woman inspecting herself in a hand-held mirror]] "Hats Draped to the Head" No. 1 304 WEST 145th STREET No. 2 2128 SEVENTH AVENUE NEW YORK CITY [[/advertisement]] HARLEM Night by Night Continued from Page 11 through his column to all of his friends throughout the country in the "profesh." He receives his mail at 217 W. 126th St. The famous Savoy Ballroom, which was newly decorated for the coming season, started off with a bang. Chick Webb and Teddy Hill supplied the music. Vivian Harris, Apollo's sweetheart, acquired a new Buick. It is Vivian's voice that is heard making announcements for the theatre. Mary Strain and Eric Henry of the Log Cabin furnish the melody and lyrics of favorites, 'til wee hours. Clelia Wilson continues to bring new faces to the patrons of the Big Apple. This time it is Bobbie Cole. Ella Woods, Clara and Lula Dial of St. Louis are seen about town. Is someone blue in St. Louis or has someone the St. Louis blues? Thanks to Billy Rowe and Allan McMillan, nationally known columnist, for their lines concerning "The Show-Down." J. C. Johnson, outstanding composer, has selected a group of talented musicians who are known as J. C. Johnson's Band. The band at this writing has several contracts offered them, however, it has not been decided which one they will take. Cotton Club features: Cab Calloway, Bill Robinson, Berry Brothers, Kathryn Perry, Avis Andrews, Princess Aurelia, Leitha Hill, Kaloak, Ann Lewis and Men Gallant's Choir of 25 voices. Mae Johnson heads the show in the Plantation, which is located in the same spot that was held by the famous Cotton Club for years. Jessie Housley, the artist, is missed a lot in Harlem.
