Junior Smart Set presents a "Night in Ole Japan” The Japanese motif in musical shows struck boldly at Bacon's Casino, when the Junior Smart Set, under the direc tion of Juliette Bovkin and Laura Stacker, presented their first operetta, “Yanki San," last week. For the month of May and to celebrate the bloom of the cherry tree, a Japanese show, it seems, was quite the thing in night life, so the young er set went right ahead and gave their new presentation, "A Night in Ole Japan.” Marjorie Robinson and rmima Poole surprised their most inti mate friends by scoring so suc cessfully in the roles of. anki San" and “San Fan." Othere per sonalities were Joseph Guinn, as the ‘'High Chancellor;” Quentin Black, “Prince Oto;” Dorothy Mc Adams, “Princess ToTo;” James Davidson, "Prince Toto;" William Smith “Prince TonTon,” who -ould not decdie which bride he did marry, was owned by "Twin Roses,” Etherine and Katherine Killingham. Because theses sisters •,re exactly alike and inseparable, the audience enjoyed much merri ment and laughter at this point in the operetta. The Seven Roses of Ole Japan Alverta De Vane, Elvetta Mitch ell, Ruth Thomas, Susie Mitchell, and Doris Wood, were very attrac tive in their number, “Parasol -lance.
