Tattler By Beth Harms It's big! It's great! It's the Pepsi Cola Club! I know you're wondering just what I’m talking about. Well, if you haven’t heard, there is a new Teen-age Show on WMFD now. Yesterday was the first broadcast and it was super. Ben McDonald is the producer and Pete Acree is his ■assistant. Each Saturday certain teen-agers will perform on the air. If you have some feature you would like to have on the show just drop them a line. Starting the first performance with a bang, Pete had certain personalities around Wilmington to show to the public just what talent they possessed. Ross Maples the thirteen year old from Tileston school, who re centlv won first place in the Talent show at the Teen - Age club, sang out with two soft melodies to thrill her audience. Carl O’Sullivan, who recently won first in the boys group at the talent show, showed his au dience just how to play the boogie-woog e and also his ren dition of the ever popular “Star dust.’’ The great thing about Carl is that he can’t read a note of music. Arnold Taylor, Betty Lou Lyndon, Betty Britz and Robert McCarl presented a hu morous skit entitled Yes, mam.” All four of these enter tainers are taking Speech Arts in the h'gh school and did a fine job giving this skit. Pete was .not only the master of ceremo nies. but he gave out with an other ever popular song. “White Christmas.” Myrtle Futrell ac canmamed ioth ngevs "'"d I gave my audience a few news not*.
