•Al Hill, Jr. was elected twelfth grade class president.
•WE NOW PRESENT
For spending exactly 25¢, my friends – one quarter of a dollar – I had the privilege of seeing the “Greatest Little Show in Hollywood.” I am referring to last Sunday night’s Lawlor’s Revue. Such a display of talent couldn’t be found in anything less than one of Busby Berkeley’s superb dance creations.
Zeal and zest was added to the program by the three M.C.’s – Gene Stockwell, Leonard Sues and Al Hill. But the highlights of the evening were Betty and Harry McCabe, Eric Evans and Marvin Ravitz. Eric favored us with “Arise Oh Sun” and “The Way You Look Tonight.” Marvin did “Pale Moon” and “Lolita,” and Betty and Harry – well, you should have been there! With three encores, they practically stole the show. I think Leon Janney deserves honorable mention at this point. To say the least, he had us in hysterics for maybe ten minutes, and I heretofore state he can darken my doorway anytime he wishes. The others were also splendid.
•DIALING AROUND: Ye editor [Al Hill Jr.] will be heard on the Marco Dog Food program Saturday night at 8, over KHJ. Other Lawlorites on this popular childrens’ show are, Jean Porter and Leonard Sues. We enjoy Ray Erlingborn’s style of M.C. work.
From the February 11, 1937 Lawlor Journal:
