PAGE TWO CATALINA DOES HER BIT FOR THE N. V. A. BENEFIT, MAY 1 Thursday evening, May 1st, 1924, at 8 p. m., in the Atwater building, the children from the Shipley School of Dancing are to give a benefit program for the "National Vaudeville Artists." Many will wonder why the "Vaude- ville Artists" need help. But Cata- lina, always ready to help any charita- ble cause, remembers it is the vaude- ville artist who is the first to give his or her services for any needy cause as well as liberal financial assistance. The part the vaudeville artist played in the World War has been recogniz- ed by the authorities in Washington as having been one of the most im- portant factors in helping win the war. They cheerfully gave up their engagements, volunteered their servi- ces, and went across to the other side to entertain the boys--even to the front line trenches, and stayed there Vivian Harris Pupil of the Shlpley Dancing School long after the Armistice was signed,. instilling a good spirit into the soldier. Let us also remember that the actor or actress is the last to ever receive any consideration from the public in the way of benefits. This is your op- portunity to return to them, in a small way, some assistance for all the things they have done and are con- stantly doing for others, by buying tickets for their benefit. The little children of Avalon who are doing their bit by (lancing are: Frances MacKay, Suzanne Montel, "Cupie" Hey, Helen McClure, Vivian Harris, Georgia Cole- man, Margaret May MaeR~e, Lois Harrison, Ruth Edmundson, Mary Hey, Mary Conrad and Margaret Daly. Miss Frances Hewitt, having been a member of the profession, has kindly consented to render several vocal se- lections. By special request, Mrs. Shipley, who is known on the stage as Ruth Bundy, will give a surprise number. Tickets will be on sale at the door.
