"PALS OF THE SADDLE"
"... Shortly after that we took our “living tableaux” to a mammoth, benefit garage sale at the Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, and did scenes from our old show, “Pals of the Saddle.” Another memorable chance for Terry and Dale to shine. Terry played a Chinese coolie, terribly politically incorrect, of course, and Dale was Mrs. Clements, the town’s old lady shrew. It was called “Sam Louie Catches Mrs. Clements on the Pot” and featured Dale shitting in the outhouse as Terry opens the door with hysterical giggling and pointing. Dale’s endless and humiliating squirming stole the show. Russ got to do a furtherly politically incorrect drunken Mexican, Pedro, feeling up Emma, the Mormon Missionary’s wife’s dress. Ah, the theater!"
