Mrs. Rose LaCour of 2421 Maple
St., had an honor and pleasure
which many Omahans would have
given much for, when Frankie
"Sugar Chile" Robinson stayed at
her home when he appeared in O
maha for an engagement at the
City Auditorium Sunday June 9th.
With him at Mrs. LaCour’s home
was his aunt and guardian Mrs.
Gladys Robinson and his small
sister Dorothy.
Aside from his wonderful mus
ical talent ‘‘Sugar Chile” is an ex
ceptionally intelligent little boy.
His every day conversation is al
most on adult level. Mrs. LaCour
after having “Sugar Chile” in her
home for a time was in her own
words “almost heart broken to
have him leave. He was an ador
able child.” The now famous
hands she said ‘‘are very small
and cute. He wears a ring and a
wrist Watch.”
Conversations with “Sugar
Chile” were always stimulating.
He is very quick and always has a
perfect answer besides having a
charm all of his own.
During a conversation with the
famous little boy Mrs. LaCour ask
ed him when his birthday was. He
answered that he was a Christ
mas package, but not to be sold.
His birthday is December 26.
i In a walk through Mrs. LaCours
garden he stopped and looked at
some coriopsis, a yelow daisy-like
flower, Sugar Chile looked at
them for a moir. it and then ob
served that he had never seen
such large dandelions before.
Mrs. LaCour spoke many words
of praise for the little boy and
said that he is a credit and a
pleasure to the race. She received
an autographed picture from the
little boy and also separate auto
