'Round the Town - to the
Author's Club for lunch.
Sat with John Qualer; Bill Thompson, who is quaver-voice Mr.Whipple with Fibber McGee and Molly; Edward deBurgeni, just back from South America. Down the table, Buck Weaver, taking bows on his share in the magnificent mural in the Santa Fe office at Sixth and Hill streets. Olin Howlin leaned over the left shoulder to say adieu. He drives East shortly for a sorjourn. Burton Holmes got laughs at his description of his dawn white-tie appearance on Ethiopia's burning sands for the coronation of the Negus at Addis Ababa. By evening, he looked like the morning after. Lee Shipey introduced Hal Boch, who had hilarious cuts "faded" from Bob Hope, Ed Gardner, et al., shows. Al Cohen rehashed in fascinating fashion California's premiere role in the 1916 elections. Russell Horton enthralled with the compositions of youthful accompanist, Curtis Anderson.
