Wilson opened with a "rag," appearing in a very expensive cloak and hat. The outfit was not becoming, giving her the appearance of being overdressed. The impression left my this costume remains, although there is a change for each number. Her black and pink gown was very becoming; she should adopt this style of dress. She does well with the "coon" numbers but should drop the Yiddish one. Her novelty song, "I'm on My Way to Say Good-by" should have been further down. After her first performance, Wilson was sent to the star position for the rest of the week. She has a pleasant voice and knows how to deliver them much better than the majority. If she placed a dance after her "rag" with a waltz movement in the chorus, she would be a riot anywhere.
