"Dizzy" Dean Will Appear at Stark Theatre on Saturday

Cub Hurler 'Pops Off' at 3 Shows in Day; Zuppke Here 8th.

Max Terhune Here 9th.

"Dizzy" dean, the great Chicago Cubs pitcher, will appear Saturday in person on the stage of the Stark Theatre at three shows. And local picture show fans and sport fans may expect anything at his shows, for he has been grabbing headlines at every appearance in the last few weeks-his latest when he named himself on his own all-time all-star baseball team.

The one and only Jerome Henry "Diz" "Me 'n Paul" "Swift Running Water" Dean will prove to be an outstanding attraction Saturday when he will appear at the afternoon show and again at the two night shows. He comes here direct from a week's engagement at the Palace Theatre in Chicago where he has been packing them in.

Appearance of the great pitcher in Saturday opens a week of events in Toulon in which well-known celebrities will appear before local audiences. Thursday night, December 8, at the annual athletic banquet of Toulon Township High School the main speaker will be Coach Robert C. Zippke, head football coach of the University of Illinois, who has won nation-wide fame for development of many strategems now in general use throughout the college football world. A guest at the banquet will be Coach A. J. Robertson, veteran football, basketball and baseball coach at Bradley College, whose basketball teams are astounding the country and who was elected one of the famous "All Star" football coaches last fall.

And to complete the list, Max Terhune, well known movie star and former WLS favorite, will appear Friday night, December 9, in person on the stage at the Stark Theatre. And of course he will bring his famous  dummy "Elmer".

"Dizzy" Will Pop Off

At each of the three shows Saturday, the great Cubs pitcher will give interviews on the stage and answer questions from the audience....

Last week-end he added to his laurels when he was made a chief in the Winnebago Indian tribe in Wisconsin, his name being Chief Nekoosa, which means "Swift Running Water".

Dean was originally scheduled here November 27 by the management of the Bailey Theatres, which appearance was postphoned to this Saturday due to his week's engagment in Chicago.

On the screen Saturday will be William "Cassidy" Boyd in a western feature, "In Old Mexico".
