Every man who will take part in it, whether he is a principal or a member of the chorus, is letter perfect in his part, songs or gags. Indication now point to one of the most successful efforts in the history of this part of the southwest.

The patronage which will be received by the show is not in doubt. It vies as a topic of conversation with the approaching visit of the Chicago Cubs, which is to say that it is uppermost in the minds of the officers and men.

Those who are to participate in the show are being given every opportunity by their company commanders to attend the rehearsals and to concentrate on making the production a success. In this step the organization commanders merely are following out a direct request made in Bulletin 19, issued by division headquarters. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Wednesday, March 27, 1918
