RUTH ETIING-was born in David City, Nebraska. After graduating from
her home-town high school she went to Chicago to study fashion design at
the Academy of Fine Arts. ·She still designs and makes most of her own
clothes.
She got her start by dancing in the chorus of one of the Chicago night-clubs
to help pay her tuition. Later she took to singing. Her singing of one of
the many songs identified with her-“Ten Cents a Dance”-may be considered
partly responsible for the reforms since made in the public dance: halls of Ne:w .
York. Before this, little was known of the plight of the “taxi-dancer.’ Ruth
has appeared in four editions of the “Follies” and with Ed Wynn in “Simple:
Simon.” She sings over the radio, on the stage and screen, and makes bestseller
phonograph records.
