NEW HAVEN NEWS
By Harriet J. Davis
On Thursday evening, Nov.
14, the Dixwell Alumni, a group
of former Dixwell athletes, held
a smoker in the Dixwell House
Gymnasium. From all reports
this was a grand affair and a
very large attendance was on
hand meeting old and new
friends. Appearing on the pro
gram were several well known
local sport and civic figures.
Latest pictures of the Yale
football team and the champion
ship fight of Joe Louis were
shown. Some of New Haven's
own local talent entertained for
the evening.
The program was arranged
by Leroy Fitch, acting as chair
man and aided by Jim Castelle,
Gordon Brown, and George
Fitch.
St. Lukes held their Annual
Fall Festival in the Guild Room
of the Church, Wednesday and
Thursday evenings of this past
week. A very large crowd at
tended. Haven't heard who the lucky
winners were for the Radio,
Blanket, Pyrex Set, Candy,
Fruit and all that's yours, if
you're lucky.
On Wednesday evening Mor
ris Eaton and Art Belle were in
vited musicians appearing on
the program. The two numbers
rendered were very inspiring,
and greatly appreciated.
Another score for the Musi
cian's Club. Some mighty mu
sicians were on hand during the
week of the 10th. Everybody
was really "groovy". Irving
Johnson, better known as "Wild
West" free lancing ace trum
peer, stole part of the show.
Horace Silver, Tenor Sax, from
South Norwalk, Bill Diaz, Alto
Sax, and Bill Carson won the
attention of the large crowd,
incidentally, Bill is from Bdgpt.
Last but not least, your old re
liables were still on hand, Billy
Brown, Alvin Towles, Art Belle,
Wesey Batta, Al Simmons and
Morris Eaton.
Looks like we will be seeing
a lot of "Wild West" around the
club and believe me when I tell
you he is really "Mad' when it
comes to giving out on his
trumpet.
Mrs. Mattie Augusta of 157
Goffe Street, recently was the
charming hostess of the La Pe
tite Club. Mrs. Ruth Washing
ton was winner of first prize
and Mrs. Lillian Pitts was the
recipient of the consolation
award.
Heard that Calvin Stoner of
Admiral Street has returned
from his vacation in Canada.
Cal, as we all know him, is one
of the ace photographers in New
Haven and I'm quite sure that
a good deal of his time was
spent taking snaps.
Mrs. Mary Aimes and daugh
ter Linda of Jacksonville, N. C,
journeyed on to Portland, Me.,
after spending a few days here
