BARKANN and ohonograoh went on next. The phonograph was good. Barkaan's sneaking voice is unpleasant. He seemed ill-at-ease on stage and he missed a cue from the ohonogranh.

JOAN BRANDON, billed as America's First Lady of Magic, did a bar act. If you've ever seen a bar act, this was a b«r actJ They all have the same faults - slow, not very magical, and once you have seen one, redundant. Her presentation is peculiar. Dressed to stress the sex angle, her delivery is high-school-girlish. It's oddly disturbing - as though a strip tease artiste were suddenly to start singing hymns.
