The Ladies Club held a "Mens Night" pot luck dinner last Saturday evening, which was a great success under the chairmanship of Mrs. Robert Meech and her committee: Mesdames Jerry Cappa, Bruce Davis, Harold Horst, Thurlow Lorenz and Ben Schoch. The surprise of the evening was the "South Pacific Show" under the direction of Mrs. Robert Meech. Musical direction was by Mrs. John Blette. Delightful combo music was furnished by Mrs. Blette at the piano, Captain Nolen, Saxaphone and Bill Seals with the drums.
After an introduction by Mrs. Don M. Hoffman the show opened with a musical number, "The Moon of Monakoors" sung by Mrs. Robert Meech. The native dancing maidens: Mesdames Jerry Cappa, Eben Hiscock, Royal Odell, Carl Ottmann, Ben Schoch and Gene Schweitzer interpreted with much grace and charm "Hawaiian Sunset." Mrs. P. Spencer sang "Balai Hi" and then blended her lovely voice with that of Mr. Short Bull in such numbers as "Red Sails in the Sunset", "Hawaiian Sunset" and others. Mrs. Robert Meech and her dancers and singers beautifully portrayed the spirit of the island in "Sweet Leilani", followed by the "Hawaiian War Chant", a solo performed by Mrs. Meech.
Coming to a romantic mood of the program Frank Vermillion sang "Some Enchanted Evening" and Mrs. Homer Fleisher "I'm In Love With a Wonderful Guy", after which they blended their two charming voices in "Dites Moi" and "Younger Than Springtime". The show ended with the entire cast singing "Aloha Oe, Farewell to Thee" which climaxed a very lovely and unforgetable evening.
Major Robert Meech, Lt. Ralph Campbell, Mark Thompson and Ben Schoch were responsible for the staging, scenery and decorations.
