will bo tho attraction at tho Sammy

Tho party, replete with unsual
novelties, was staged In a largo ball
room Betting at the Metro studio. Tho
room was decorated with jack o'lari
terns, flags and bunting. With domi
nating prominence, in the center of

provided tho do luxo novelty of tho

scene and when sho waved a wand the
pumpkin separated into sections and

Eighty dancers participated in tho
party scenes and gay music was pro
vided by a colored "Jazz" band. In
tho midst of all tho festivities tho
