Al G. Fields, Lew Dockstnder and all
of that host of the artists of the burnt
cork and blazing costume who have
for years delighted the American pub
lic with merry wit and clever songs
Lfrom the minstrel boards- will have to
enlarge their black-face hall of fame
to include the songsters and the pun
sters from the Phoenix High School
of the class of '10 for the minstrel
show given by the junior class of the
high school last night was a success,
not only financially, but from the
standpoint artistic. The songs were
well sung and the stunts were clever,
the only poor feature of the show be
ing in the mechanical department,
where someone failed to drop the
American flag over the chorus at the
proper time, and also let the cur
tain fall when it should not have drop
ped at all. However, the members of
the troupe or the trainer were in no
wise to blame for these unfortunate
occurrences and the members of the
chorus were sufficiently well trained
not to look for the flag when it failed
to drop, so that many In the audience
did not know that a mistake had been
After an overture by the High school
orchestra the curtain was rung up on
the opening chorus and showed thirty
six of the students with black faces of
all degrees of darkness and costumes
of all of the glorious, gaudy colors of
the rainbow. The natural beauty of
the lassies of the class was indeed well
concealed by the daubing of the cork,
and the crowd looked like a bunch of
darkies Imported direct from the cot
ton fields of Georgia. The male por
tion of the cast was arrayed in mar
velous dress suits, each with a tie of ;
different shade, and the end men were j
there In the crowning glory of knee j
breeches anj white silk stockings. i
After the opening chorus, which was j
a medley of the choruses of popular I
songs "Sport" Tolleson, end man, attir- j
ed in green, said in song that once he .
was afraid to go home in the dark, bnt '
that now he -as afraid to go home at !
all. His 'brother sang an account of :
a scriptural ball game. Both members I
of the family were forced to respond ;
to encores. Then came "Doc" Stroud, j
who produced as chorus to a song I
telling why he was no longer married, I
a clever parodv dealing with the Cen- i
ter street brtJge. An old grip was
brought in by the singer. On one side :
of it was printed dimly with chalk,
"Tempe Bridge." The singer had to
leave the country, but if he wanted to ,
go by way of Tempe he must take the '
train, which his circumstances would
not allow. He, then turned the reverse
side of the grip, which bore one of
the pennants labeled "Center Street
Bridge and Greater Phoenix." This
was to be his way of leaving.
Earl Hawley sang of the troubles of
the umpire, after which Byron Bellas
sang a lazy man's yawning song which
was one of the features of the show.
"String" Alkire was there as end man
with the real negro voice and a num
ber of clever jokes. The work of the
chorus closed with a rendition of the
choruses of a number of popular airs.
the last of which was The Grand Old
Flag, during the singing of which the
last flag to float over old Fort Mc
Dowell was dropped before the mem
bers of the chorus.

The Lamson Business College
Tpc olio included a baritone solo by
Magoffin, a duet by Magoffin and
Stroud, a trombone solo by Will Corp
stein who was encored, a solo by Dixie
Wadllngton, "Black Patti," who was
backed up by five couples of dancers,
and an oration by Caesar Holslnger,
who gave Marc Antoirv's oration at
the funeral of Caesar with a number
of present day slang phrases thrown
in. He added considerably to the clas
sic as a work of art, and doubtless
made it more adaptable to the under
standing of the average youthful stu
dent of the present. The most pleas
ing feature of the olio was the solo
and the dance by Blvira James Well,
who captivated the entire audience.
The last number of the olio was the
cake walk which"was the most adver
tised feature of the minstrels, and the
one which aroused the greatest in
terest on the part of the audience.
Four counles were in1 the competition
for the big cake which was offered as
a prize to the couple, who received the
greatest share of applause. The cos
tumes of the ladies, particularly that
of Miss Creighton, commanded the ad
miration of every student of the
modiste's art in the house. Each
couple in the walk came in for such
an amount of applause that it was
thought that the contest would have
to be continued indefinitely, but the
j award was final!:- made to Miss Mar
guerite Guilbert and Harry Young.
The cake was awarded bi "Cur
! ley" Stoner. the interlocutor, and de
j spite the fact that Mr. Tolleson, who
i was one of the contestants, drew a
razor and went over and whispered in
the ear of the gentleman of the win
ning couple that he thought that the
award was not fairly made, arid that
it should have been awarded to his
lady, the award stood and it was time
for the circus.
The circus was ail that the Informed
