We have heard of folks having
spots before their eyes; we have
heard of folks even getting ink
spots on their clothes; But it was
left to Mrs. Hattie Allen, 2114
Clark, to come up with a new oih :
inkspots on her mind.
The Ingspots we refer to are
the four who were at the Orpheuin
Theatre a few weeks ago. They
hav been here before but Mrs. Al
ien didn’t go to see them. They
came again and still she didn’t
make a move to do somtehing a
bout it. But she didn’t do some
thing about it those times she cei
tainly did the last time.
She just couldn’t get her mind
off them. She really had the Ink
spots on her mind. So when they
returned this year she got herself
together and went to see them.
And that’s just part of rhe story.
Her going to see them attests
to their wonderful drawing power
and popularity if nothing else do
es/ For it has been so she tells
us, ten years since she has set f°ot
in a theatre- She enjoyed the ex
perience greatly until it was time
to return home- It was then that
despite her having been relieved
of ‘inkspots’ on hr mind she wa*=
very unhappy about the whole
thing. She isn’t any too fond o.1’
walking and doesn’t like waiting
for street cars. And she couldn't
get a taxi. Now you folks can
see what the inkspots did to Mrs.
