Trad* Mark Registered O. 8. Patent Office By Harry MacArthur A young man we know, who tries to keep a grip on himself in an age when he knows full well that is hardly possible, seems to be beset by pixies, which spend their time mak ing certain that he shall daily face | strange sights that shake him psychi cally. Just the other day he was innocently passing a sporting goods house when his eye was caught by a 'sign recommending a certain brand of sun glasses “for that man-about town look, from beach to night club.” * * * * A number of the young men of the land, who have been busy elsewhere for the past few years, have been known to voice disapproval of the manner in which some things have been managed at home in their ab sence. There is, however, one quar ter at least in which mismanagement cannot be charged. The judges of the Atlantic City Beauty Pageant seem to have acted with rare good judgement in 1944 when they se lected that year's Miss America, as any returnee, disgruntled pr npt, can discover at the Trade Winds. It is there that Miss Venus Ramey, the Cincinnati girl who represented Washington and won the beauty crown in 1944, is embarking upon a new singing career. A rather nerv ous singing debutante at this point in her professional life, Miss Ramey does, however, show considerable promise. Being a young lady who ■ could gain a deal of rapt attention just standing up there reading a stamp catalogue. Miss Ramey of course has a head start on a career. Her immediate need is for better knowledge of timing, for her voice is pleasant if not operatic, her person ality is winning and her songs are clever. She should be able to put aside a certain feeling of apprehen sion she seems to have, once she realizes that the customers are quite - - KEYHOLE I CAFE I 724 18th St. W.W.

Herb is still mad at AGVA, but the new manager, for Duet, Inc., is Bert Tucker, son of Sophie Tuck er, and since Sophie had much to do with the founding of AGVA, you can see what happened to that feud when Mr. Sachs departed. So, Jerri Blanchard arrived last Thurs day night as she had promised she would, making the Duet one of the livelier places around the town. Quite a gal is Miss Blanchard, for making life more fun with her ro bust ditties about her disastrous encounters with eager males. It is good to have her t%ck. The Duet’s continuous entertainment policy has given way, incidentally, to the more standard routine of two shows nightly (at 9 and 12). Currently featured, along with Miss Blanchard, are a dancer named Marilyn Hale and Pat Chandler, master of cerempnies and mimic. * * * * A better night than last Friday1 could not have be^n picked for the opening of the Starlight Roof of the Roger Smith Hotel, that being a spot, as old-timers in the town know, where there's always a breeze. Well, Friday night it was hot and muggy in the street below and the air drooped listlessly, but up on the roof, sure enough, there was a breeze and it was pleasantly cool er and life was good. The manage ment, incidentally, unlike the man agement of a night club we once saw in Khartoum, will not refuse to refund your money in case of! haboob, but come sandstorm or rainstorm you will be moved down stairs to the air-cooled Cafe Ca price.
