[[box]] BACK STAGE IN PEORIA
By William C. Clay [[/box]]

Peoria will soon be on the map in the "Theatrical World" it has a great future in Miss Maxine Carter Sells whose family boast of many vocalists talented. Maxine whose voice is the main feature at the Harlem Club guest hour, she has a combination personality and a voice that equal many of our high salaried stars.

Eddie Randle and his Blue Devils thrilled a vast number of music lovers when they played for the Masons Convention, it was a gala event with many distinguished visitors attending. Among them were some gorgeous dressed ladies.

"Pen" Macky and "Buck" Carter racing for honors as Peoria's ace Crooners, Mr. George Green, man about town is a credit to Peoria. Mr. Henry Jamerson, son of the late Rev. H. W. Jamerson was a guest of the Masonic Dance, Mr. Thomas Glass, Sr., one of the high officers in the Masons of Decatur Ill., was guest of his son Thomas, Jr. "Red" Shelby and Othell Brown are Peoria's sensational golfers for 1936 having established a record that many envy. Derrick Johnson, Trombonist with Harry Cuzes Ork., of Omaha, Neb., is quite a popular man about town.

PHILLIE AFTER SUNDOWN
Continued from page 4.

m. c's is now assisting baseballs famous Sand Top behind the bar. While at Roscoe's, it's Gus and Dick Hendricks, sharing the popularity with the latter spot, are Leonard's and Dempsey's, the places where you can always find the visiting performers. The only Ray Moore, we hear, will be with us indefinitely.

It's good to see Joe Williams about again, he's still beating the traps at that ofay club. After missing her for a while, we see little Betty Cobbs again headed for the big time. If I have missed you, don't raise a peeve, get in touch with me and I'll have your copy delivered. Darn it, there goes the time. Well folks, look for me each and every month on this same program, and may I take the opportunity to extend Phillie's compliments to SHOW-DOWN on its first anniversary - 
I THANK YOU
