Features a poem dedicated to Anderson by Franklin P. Adams as well as the evening menu, list of guests, etc. Kalil's was a large restaurant on Park Place, New York. Dinner in honour of Anderson, a "handsome Canuck." Adams was an American columnist known as a prolific writer of light verse such as featured on this program. Of most interest, however, are the two cartoons. Homer Davenport, one of the highest paid political cartoonists in the world, was known for drawings that satirized figures of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. Goldberg, on the other hand, could also draw a good caricature, and does so here, but is remembered for his cartoons depicting complicated gadgets performing simple tasks in indirect, convoluted ways.
