Joe Bennett, next to closing, held several of the departing ones in the aisles as soon as he started to dance. The talk about the limberger also tended to make the uneasy ones forget their desire to leave. Bennett, like the other turns, just did his act, even extending himself to overcome the handicap of the departures. He pulled down a sizable applause hit at the finish, but nothing like he would have received under normal conditions.
