The College Girls Figure Marion Nichols, Reader Rachael E. F. Morton, Soprano and Banjo Mary C. Browne, Contralto, Piano and Banjo THE COLLEGE GIRLS INDIVIDUALLY the members of the company are artists; collectively there is nothing to be desired. The program abounds in good things; a happy combination of the popular and the classical, the humorous and the pathetic. Soprano, Contralto, Banjo and Piano solos and duets, interspersed with readings from our best authors. The young ladies have been chosen for the several positions because of their general education and their special training with recognized Figure instructors. Modest and unassuming, the THREE COLLEGE GIRLS are bound to be received with enthusiasm wherever they appear. Miss Marion Nichols Miss Marion Nichols, is a reader of talent, taste, power and versatility. She is inspiring and enthusiastic and wins her audiences with her bright and intelligent interpretation of the works of many authors. Her work is touched with the light of humor, grace and innate charm and she pleases her hearers, whether she entertains them with an amusing skit, or stirs them with great creations of the master dramatists. She is a success. Miss Nichols showed herself a reader talented, cultured and captivating; encores were frequent and she was recalled half a dozen times on her last number.— Boston (Mass.) Globe. Miss Nichols is one of the best readers who has appeared in this vicinity, having grace, charm of personality and a beautiful voice, capable of every inflection and of delightful modulations. Emotions were graphically pictured in face and voice. Her selections were unusually happy, and she excelled in that elusive kind of humor which is so difficult to express. She was vigorously encored each time.— New Haven (Conn.) Leader. Miss Mary C. Browne Miss Mary C. Browne is richly endowed with musical gifts. She possesses a beautiful contralto voice of excellent range; she is a finished pianist and plays the banjo admirably. Her negro lullaby songs will prove instantaneous hits in a most delightful program. MISS BROWNE Miss Nichols pleased her audience with several selections varying in sentiment from the grave to the gay, and giving a scope for variety of expression which she was fully capable of portraying.— Everett (Mass.) Republican. Miss Nichols was admitedly the most pleasing elocutionist who has ever appeared before the club.— Hudson (Mass.) News. Miss Marion Nichols brought down the house with her impersonations.— Old Orchard (Maine) Mirror. MISSES BROWNE AND MORTON SPECIAL FEATURE Misses Morton and Browne will introduce at each concert a group of SOUTHERN SONGS (DUETS) with banjo accompaniment. MISS MORTON Miss Rachael E. F.
