Most of the entries in the bi### Vacation Sweepstakes are i### and are being care fully scrutinized b### the judges. Last week we mentioned that the winners would be announced this issue but with the closing date listed as Sunday June 23rd, we’ll just have to wait until then to give every body a chance. If you mail your letter no later than Sunday, the 23rd, you’ll still have time to enter. For those “Who’ve just tuned in,” the idea is to write in fifty words “Why I would like to spend my vacation at Grossinger’s.” Mail it to

New York, N. Y.

Don Beddoe, the brilliant young actor who will be remembered for his vivid performances in “Goodbye Again,” “Warrior’s Husband,” “The Greeks Had a Word for It,” and other Broadway shows, arrived today with plans for about eight dramatic offerings for the season. The Grossinger Playhouse consists of two separate units, one that confines itself to musical presentations and the other that does legitimate shows — one-acters and full length plays. Done Beddoe and Robert Williams direct the latter company under the supervision of Richard Mack who presents the musicals as well.

Pearl Osgood, the clever dancing comedienne who played in George White’s “Flying High” and “Manhattan Mary,” also arrived this week and will remain for the season, to be featured in musicals and several dramatic plays.
