Ajax and Emily

[New Act] Music and Athletics, 13 mins.; one and full stage. Closing the show Ajax seemed to have pulled a “bone” by opening up with an accordion solo that was non plus on “pep,” and only served to chase ’em from the first chord, until he went into full stage to handle a weight by hand and with his teeth. It was o.k. after leaving the instrument, and that can be done away with any time, as now it’s just something to be forgiven and only makes that much more to be overcome. Especially so following a long bill. A woman assistant made two changes in dress, which helped, but the slight attempt at comedy by her could go, as it brought laughs that really weren’t. A good closing act, but needs cutting down and speeding up.
