They found an engagement it] "Dutch Henry's," one el the largest cafes in Pittsburgh, Pa. They played there four consecutive years. They decided that just "music" wasn't suf- ficient to get them anywhere, so they created some novelties and added sev- ,eral specialties to the programs. The band started "clicking" so they further decided to add some comedy nmnbers and ahnost instantly, the band was a sensation. They worked hard, built several special .gadgets for the com- edy numbers and t'ittsburgh folks were treated to some real entertain- nlent. At the end of their four year engagement, the band did not even have a name, and they decided it was about time, so after much deliberation, they finally titled it "The Four Com- iques." The past year was spent in playing engagements throughout the East The Four Comiques continued to be a riot at every l>erforn]anee. Patrons in ht)tels and night clubs marveled at their speed and versatile ability and howled ,it their COlnCdy nmnbers.

The ladies were catered to by Mrs. Baker on the ~lub veranda, very ably assisted by several of the men-folk-- mostly batcheiors. The men were in the capable hands of Mr. Baker him- self, and he was sure a busy man, be- ing in charge of the Club's famous Bait Box. Needless to say, no mere- " ber can ever hope to become President of this august body unless he really knows his bait. And in this particular ease, Mr. Baker's report card shows a perfect score.
