down the stream, was tangled in

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wells, of the
Apollo Duo, will be remembered as
the leaders of the Apollo Concert
Company, which they piloted for 18
years across this country, Canada and
Australia. Arthur Wells, with his 300
pounds of fine fun and music, and his
charming wife, Alta R. Wells, m their

very best features from the Old Apol-
lo Concert Company. They will ap-
pear here on Oct. 29 in the evening

Mr. Wells, or "Art,” as he is pop-
ularly known, is an accomplished
musician in many lines. He is an ar-
tist of first rank on the banjo, on the
saxophone .and the bassoon. He is an
inimitable story teller, both in dia-
lect and more serious readings.
Alta R. Wells is a gifted and gra-
cious artist on the piano and saxo-
phone, also featuring vocal work and
pianologues. Her contralto voice it
greatly, enjoyed. She is an accompa-
nist of ability, and her musical at-

There is an air of professionalism
in the program of the Apollo Duo,
which, coupled with the splendid per-

artists, makes their program tremen-

they both take part, are noted on the
program and their duets on the sax-
ophone are excellent.
