FOOTBALL FUN...There were a lot of people
on the strip last Saturday night! Johnson C.
Smith’s first game of the season spilled the folks
onto the streets and into places like Mr. Silks
Lounge, Midway Lounge, Big Apple Lounge,
Excelsior Club and The VIP Club.
Most of these people were Smith followers, and
they let it be known by making big merry, big
predictions, and big bets on the games to come.

conform to the custom, fashion or established
mode especially in dress. Furthermore, I am
sure you will agree with me that this is a town of
very fashionable brothers and sisters. As a
prelude to the fall fashions that will soon spring
up around town, VIP productions along with the
House of Charles put together a show of fashions
. last Sunday evening at the VIP Lounge, that
dazzled the “four hundred” senses of a very
. stylish audience.
Jacqueline Morrow set the visual atmosphere
- with her artistic floral arrangement. Luther
Maxwell and Matt Freeman kept everything
imellow, music wise, while the beautiful Shirley
