New Grand Offerings.
Seals and Russian dancers divide headline honors at the New Grand. The Maseroff Russian dancers consist of four men and four women who, in native costume, offer the folk dances of the Slavs. Captain Treat's seal and his three sea lions do remarkable balancing feats. Park and Francis, with some amusing dialogue about the garden where spaghetti grew, carry off the applause of the bill. Walter Gilbert is a contortionist, who mingles his feats with comedy. Mrs. Helen O'Keefe of Chicago is announced as the winner of the $10,000 prize for writing the sequel to "The Diamond From the Sky."
