TINT NATURE WONDERFUL!
JDidia ever see anv of this Russian
classic dancing? Y'know these solo
dances. "The Afternoon of a Fawn"
or "Ecstasia d'Amour." We lamped
some the other night. Talk about
v fun; they make Chas. Chaplin's
stuff look as funnjr as the landlord's
monthly visit We got a bigger laugh
out of it than the recent investiga
tion of high prices and almost fell
over the gallery railing. Chris Dietz
said for us not to go, as it was away
over our heads, this classic stuff, so
that and another Teason is why we
hiked to the gallery. WeJJ, here's
how they rave: A fellow labeled Ivan
Clothesoff is supposed to be afawn.
He's dolled up like a sign painter
who works without overalls, differ
ent colored spots on the legs and
arms. He comes sneaking on the
stage sldewayB, like he's squeezing
through the areaway between a cou
ple of buildings. He spies a wren
across the stage smelling a tissue pa-
N per rose, "so he takes a big dive a la
Kellermanand volplanes in front of
her on his toes and makes a couple
of faces at her. She starts scam
pering around in a circle and he after
her. (They make you think ofa
lightweight fight) The fawn wants
jto make a date with the frail to take
in a movie, but she keeps turning
him down Finally after he trails
her around the circle for ten minutes
(he could catch her if he wanted to)
she consents (he must have told her
they'd have sodas, too) . so she takes
her shawl and puts it over, their
heads (that's a funny place to put
the shawl to keep warm the way
they're rigged up) and they slide off
the stage. WHEE! Some giggle-getter,
George, these classics.

THE WILD FLOWER
Today when I got out of bed
I nearly jumped with joy,
And, looking in the mirror, said:
"Shake hands with me, my boyr
The reason's very slight,
I didn't have to shave;
I shaved myself last night!,
