Lawson Botts UDC Dinner June 13th The Lawson Botts U.D.C. will have a covered dish supper at the home of Miss Camilla Wiltshire on Tuesday, June 13, at 6 p.m. BY GREGORY MAZZONI "I don't know how to apologize for me to you...but the professor -- Professor Fly By Night -- cannot be here this evening. However, I am pleased to in- treduce...Princess Mazorka. Resplendent in the finest gypsy garb -- flowing caftan, flowered bubuska, sandals and 8-inch golden hooped earrings -- the Princess appeared. There was magic in the air as the Princess, seated on her makeshift throne, a folding canvas-backed chair, began her spiel. A crew-cut young man (who :quipped, "What's the matter, don't you trust a man with short hair?")was enlisted from the audience, and asked to think of the name of an animal. The Princess focused on his thoughts, then wrote his un- disclosed selection on a chalk i slate. Another spectator was asked to conjure the name of a childhood friend, but to keep silent her choice. Again the Princess deliberated and scribbled. A female was called forward, to draw a single card from a full deck, which she pocketed in secrecy from the Princess. The moment of decision arrived. The young man said be had thought of a donkey. The ;Princess revealed her labors: "donkey." The childhood acquaintance: Millie. Again the Princess was correct. The crowd was buzzing with enthusiasm and emcee Professor Fly By Night -- who somehow materialized from his show-opening disclaimer -- fed the fires of audience incredulity with the proclamation, "One is good, two is a coincidence, but three, now three is something else." The hidden card? "A three of diamonds," the volunteer yelled out. Again, this time to the heavy applause of audience ap- preciation, the Princess revealed her selection. Of course, the three of diamonds. And so the show began. Complementing mysterious feats of legerdemain with a 4- ball juggler's 'virtuoso and a comical white4ace mime act, performers from the Claymont Society, of Jefferson County, entertained an overflow crowd at the Yellow Brick Bank, Shepherdstown's premier night spot that doubles as restaurant, night club and town hang-out. Little urging was needed for full audience participation -- especially after Princess Mazorka's final feat. The Professor folded, and then burned, a scrap a paper on which a volunteer had written the number and suit of a playing card. The Princess smudged the burnt paper against her arm and the crowd's silence changed to an audible gasp as a handwritten 6 of hearts" appeared in the ashes. The stage was set, and the audience warmed, for Mr. Ambidextrous, bearded mimic whose 3-part act included "The Waiter," "Paper Work," and "Gone Fishing." Backed by the soft strains of a vaudevillian mouth harp, the mime portrayed the pleasing superficialities of a waiter at work, whose gratuity is often little more than a customer's smile. The entire audience was thralled at his portrayal of a fisherman, who suffers the ultimate agony of being himself lured, and then snagged, by a floating beer can bait than snatches him unaware into the deep. Professor Fly By Night con- cluded the performance with several sleight of hand maneuvers that befuddled the audience, including a husky volunteer who shouted "No way a gypsy can outfox a black man." But outfoxed he was, when the gregarious Professor slipped a silver coin into a corked bottle that the man firmly grasped. The Professor, obviously a man of varying compassions, consoled the dejected volunteer, who returned to his seat scratching his head in dismay. "Don't worry, Sir," he cajoled, "Nothing is what it seems to be".
