Arlie Latham, Song And Dance Man

Arlie Latham-he of the glass arm-informs me that he will again be an actor the coming season. Arlie's first stage experience was with an opera troupe. Now he branches out as a burnt-cork artist. He has made an engagement already to travel with Doakstader's Minstrels next season. Arlie will sing in the first part and fill out in the big clog dances in the second.

Seriously now, who wouldn't want to see The Freshest Man On Earth in a vaudeville show?
