Cedar Rapids, Ia. Majestic Theatre [Dec. 4 - 9] This week at the Majestic "Chas. Burke - Pat Toughey Co." [cartoon] 'Burke-Touhey and company have a rollicking Irish sketch called "The Birthday Party" that is new and contains some novel features that please the audience mightily. One of the best features of the act is the real music that Mr. Touhey gets out of a set of Irish pipes. The airs range from Irish ballads to jigs, and brought more applause than any other feature on the bill. Both men are good comedians and their stuff is all new and pleasing.'
