TINT NATURE WONDERFUL!
Russian Ballet JDidia ever see anv of this Russian classic dancing? Y'know these solo dances. "The Afternoon of a Fawn" or "Ecstasia d'Amour." We lamped some the other night. Talk about v fun; they make Chas. Chaplin's stuff look as funnjr as the landlord's monthly visit We got a bigger laugh out of it than the recent investiga tion of high prices and almost fell over the gallery railing. Chris Dietz said for us not to go, as it was away over our heads, this classic stuff, so that and another Teason is why we hiked to the gallery. WeJJ, here's how they rave: A fellow labeled Ivan Clothesoff is supposed to be afawn. He's dolled up like a sign painter who works without overalls, differ ent colored spots on the legs and arms. He comes sneaking on the stage sldewayB, like he's squeezing through the areaway between a cou ple of buildings. He spies a wren across the stage smelling a tissue pa- N per rose, "so he takes a big dive a la Kellermanand volplanes in front of her on his toes and makes a couple of faces at her. She starts scam pering around in a circle and he after her. (They make you think ofa lightweight fight) The fawn wants jto make a date with the frail to take in a movie, but she keeps turning him down Finally after he trails her around the circle for ten minutes (he could catch her if he wanted to) she consents (he must have told her they'd have sodas, too) . so she takes her shawl and puts it over, their heads (that's a funny place to put the shawl to keep warm the way they're rigged up) and they slide off the stage. WHEE! Some giggle-getter, George, these classics. q o PROBABLY COT NO TIP "Waiter, is this a lamb chop or a pork chop?" "Can't you tell by the taste ?" "No." f 'Well, then, what does it matter?"
