Citadel Cadet Minstrels in the opera

traction deserved a much larger audi

ence in attendance was appreciative.
an-d the cadets received encore after
encore. The -performanee was snappy
and .hiwh class throuihout. The jokes
were iiew and bright, and the singing
was very excellent. The show thr tgh

tiolS which have been presented in
the State in recent years by profes
sional minstrel aggregations. The
end men were exceptionally good. and
"Major Crane" Osborne made quite
a hit. In the vernacular of the stage,
he was "there with the goods,'' and
he handed them out in such laughable
style that he was clearly seen to be
oiie of the favorite "sons of Ham."
The part "Bamboo Land'' deserves
special mention. It was a -how with
in itself, and was replete with t-he
kind of wholesome fun which appeals
to an audience. The dancing, was
rare, and brought rounds of applause
from the audience.
"Booker 0rum'' did some high
class singing, and the famous "J-ad
bury Symphony Concert Band"
;omes in for its share of the praise.
This band. led by ",Sargent George
Jenkins" (Rogers) made a decided
hit. and was one of the most lauh
ible parts in t-he whole show.

stic snappy way. but one must re
nember that such efficiency is not got

eaeh this high degree of success. The

.The last part was like the rest of

xcelent. This part was a burlesque
n Verdi's opera. "Il Trovatore,"
mnd it was a barlesque indeed. The
Ill Treated Trovatore'' was good.

The cadets are ameteurs, of course,
