Cliffside, Nov. 6 — Mr. C. E. Alcock, editor-owner of this well-doing Forest City Courier, I know, must have missed greatly his golf on a day like Saturday and Sunday. Incidentally, do remember the Dixie Course and the opportunities offered there.
Since the depression is over, Janet Gaynor, actress, is receiving 1500 fan letters daily. Some people must like her.
We heard Vincent Lopez playing, “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” last night and to say the least, it was a surprise to us hearing it come from this particular band. Today, a news writer started his article on the upturn in business by using the title of the above song. He reflected that most of us were closely nipped by the mythical wolf, as it were, Ladies and Gentlemen-Ben Bernie not speaking.
Our own home boy, O. K. Padgett, who is a likeness of Vincent Lopez, we venture to say, will organize an orchestra.
Harold Neuman, Lansing Mich., opened his racing plane “Ike” to its full speed and looked at Charlotte at 250 M. P. H. That, folks, was coming straight down; we would believe that Neuman was not window shopping when he was driving that ship. Johnny Livingston, Aurora, Ill., Art Davis, Lansing Mich., and Bennet Griffin, New York, gave Charlotte a close formation exhibition which is the only civilian team doing the stunt. The boys take off within five feet of each other and climb, turn and dive in this formation.
Lou Holtz, leaving the network studios the other night, said he was going for a hamburger and was “Headin’ for the Last Ground Up”. Paul Whitman’s program begun the other night by the master of ceremonies assuring everyone that this song would not be played.
Lee Tracy and Jean Harlow in “Bombshell,” and, folks, we have an idea there will be some dynamite in this picture.
We heard Gene Austin sing two of his own compositions at the Charlotte Carolina, “Lonesome Road” and “Melancholy Baby”. Gene, as we have noticed, has not tried the radio trail.
