The Art Students Hold Their Annual Party… But Is It Art?
Miss Babita, that’s the whole name, is a well known psychic, her friends said. The sign may indicate some of her friends aren’t.
This is a mermaid costume that won first prize, a bagful of money which she didn’t count. The winner in the costume is Renee Parsons.
She graced the annual ball of the Art Students’ League at the Commodore Friday night and she is Natalia Munez.
