Dave the Guesser can meow like a cat so convincingly you'll go looking for the hidden feline. You can't see Dave's lips moving.

Remember Cyrano? He is Dave's wooden dummy from his ventriloquist show. Cyrano even has real dentures.

Dave's many talents are now (1948) the talk of Old Orchard.

He's part of the attraction that has cars crowding the new Maine Turnpike that opened in December. Vacationers and others jam the roadway from Kittery to Portland.
