By the Spectator. rrade Mark Refistrred U S Patent Office Practitioners in Review: Umil the Statler and the Olm sted Night Club wrapped contracts around Hildegarde. Nancy Noland, Nan Blakstone and such like, the night life of the town had been prettv bare of feminine entertain j ers whose specialty tends toward v 'orous. And inasmuch as lit may be midsummer before Hilde p return, and Olmsted’s, as a night club, has ceased to exist, >nu like their feminine entertainers funny had best visit tne Latin Quarter Room and view Helen O'Hara w’hile they may. This particular commodity in the midnight mart is scarce. One's credulity must be dangerously stretched to include Hildegarde in the category, the search for such representatives is that desperate. The fact that the so-called ‘‘inti mate” clubs, where comediennes mostly prevail, are relatively few in Washington, has little to do with the shortage. Travelers returning from large urban centers like New York report a similar dearth there, where ‘‘clubs intime” are anything but nonexistent. The girls who try by various means to get a laugh out of audi ences aggressively laughter-bent are simply hard to find. Thus, the Quarter gives you its comic impressionist with prideful fanfare and an added little toot to the effect that Miss O'Hara is one of the very, very few comediennes who does impersonations of male personalities. By way of amplification, the man agement reveals that Miss O'Hara joined her select set quite im HELEN O’HARA, .
