ter impersonations that is remarkable.
They open their act as two charm
ing: "Dixie" girls, following with
"Dutch," Eskimo, Egyptian, Chinese
and Spanish impersonations, c.osing
their act. as charmingly as they opened
in neat suits of gray. O'Neal and
Walnisley are a pair of clever comed
ians, "The Two Lightning Bugs," with
a rapid-fire bunch of witty sayings.
Charles and Adelaide Wilson offer a
hodge podge of melody and mirth call
ed "The Messenger, the Maid and
the Violin.'' The melody includes vocal
and violin renditions of a superior
sort and the merriment is a running
flow of comedy judiciously handled by
a capable comedian. The talkative
tumblers, Frank and True Rice, with
an entirely different sort of an ath
letic act, chatter incessantly while
performing the most difficult feata and
are really actor acrobats. The Or-
pheum concert orchestra and the Or
I pheumscope complete an exceptionally
I strong bill for the week.

McGraw last night. "I got Thorpe on
