Since that time she has been one of America's happiest additions to the world of entertainment. A NEW TYPE OF ENTERTAINMENT The versatility of Miss Fox makes it possible for a new type of entertainment. What we love is Variety . A dramatic reading—a character sketch—a snatch from a play—a bit of folk lore—something with music—these are the things which fill an enjoyable evening—the thing which makes entertainment real.
