George Williams, noted WTAM orchestra leader, will bring his aggregation of musical stars to Rock Springs Park at Chester this Tuesday night, July 14th. Williams is well known in the valley, as he holds the all time crowd attendance at Rock Springs Park and several other valley ballrooms.

Williams features lovely Miss Thelma Walters, Guy McComas, and Hal Lippincott. Guy McComas has been heard on coast to coast radio network commercial programs. (The Daily Times, July 11, 19436.)
