OPEN EVERY MONDAY and SATURDAY EVENING UNTIL 10 P.M. Foreign Legion Stuff IT is, of course, open season for civic suggestions. If Mr. 1 Cermak's ears may be said to have burned during the campaign, how now must Mayor Cermak's ears ring with the advices of eager associates. Without looking, we esti mate his daily mail easily in excess of the fabled black sheep's three bags full and refrain from adding thereto. Besides, we own to a selfish preference for working out our own ideas right here in the open. Our idea of the moment is for a Foreign Legion division of the Police Department. If the films have not too grossly misled us, the Legion naires are rugged, lusty, devil-may-care fellows who, for reasons no one inquires, serve France forthrightly, unques tionably and ably in places where service is least pleasant, most dangerous, unheroic and ill paid. And if the news papers have not deceived us, no citizen thinks, speaks and writes so evilly of Chicago as the citizen of a foreign country, city or town, the degree of bitterness mounting with the square of the distance. Now if we were His Honor the Mayor, who has promised not to interfere with the work of Acting Commissioner Alcock, we would tell Mr. Alcock that the underworld of Paris, London, Berlin, Singapore, Port Said, New York, Detroit, San Francisco and points intervening is peopled with ruthless gentlemen, many at large beyond their time and conceivably interested in sanctuary, who can be marshalled and maintained at an exceedingly nominal figure (another Legion feature) as a police unit restricted to the pursuit, rout and if necessary destruction of gangs, gangsters and gang practices. Such a Legionnaire would be motivated by a normal spirit of competition, in contrast with the common or fam ily variety of copper, which would both animate his trigger nnger and fortify him against monetary inducement to go native. He would know that failure to get his man (we seem to be getting this confused with the R. N. W. M. P.) would bring about his return to the custody of his home authorities. He would kill a few Chicago gangsters, the home papers would extol his valor, and Chicago would become renowned as a place of peace, security and civic virtue. We think it's a pretty swell idea. More Myths After Lingle X/V/HILE we're giving away ideas, this being an irre- " " sistible Spring morning and our generosity expand ing all over the place, here's one for Publisher Bernarr McFadden of True Story and other magazines, now of Liberty. We'd have given the idea to Publishers R. R. McCormick and Joseph M. Patterson of The Chicago Tribune and The K[ew Tor\ Daily Js[ews had they retained a little longer, at whatever cost, custody of the nickel weekly. And maybe there's something in it for all three of the gentlemen after all. Liberty, it seems, was never a happy enterprise for its founders. It lacked a certain something, no one agrees with anyone else as to just what, to give it the girth of The Saturday Evening Post. It now becomes Mr. McFadden's job to supply that certain something and we, always help ful, make no charge for the somewhat obvious suggestion that he can not essay a quick try more promiseful than the purchase from Messrs. McCormick and Patterson of com plete rights to Reporter John Boettiger's The Solution of the Lingle Murder, now appearing serially in The Chicago Tribune. We have read the first ten installments of this thriller and unhesitatingly recommend it to Mr. McFadden as a wow. It's pretty dull for a daily paper, and long, but it ought to go big in one of Mr. McFadden's magazines. We're not quite sure which one, but hardly True Story. To Be or Not to Be THE annual Goodman question, to be or not to be, awaits reply as these lines are written. There is the usual talk of deficit, of art, of civic justification and so on. Our guess is that the show will go on, if only because the theatre is there and theatres are for shows, but we think the future of the Goodman ought to be removed from the sphere of guesswork and we think it can be done. It should be definitely decided by those who do the deciding about the Goodman that there is exactly one and only one practicable basis of theatre operation. That one is the basis of entertainment for money, a dollar's worth of show for a dollar. The single problem confronting the guardians of the Goodman is the production of plays saleable at the market. Neither the "civic" tag nor the remote location of the Goodman can keep the public away from a good show nor bring it to see a bad one. Rockne KNUTE ROCKNE died the day after the preceding issue of The Chicagoan went to press. We tried to stop the presses, but were too late. Later on we were glad. No gloom was deeper than ours. Our last word about Rockne had been unkind, although spoken in jest. Our next was to be different ... as we finished reading the news bulletin of the crash, we took from our file of future features a life sketch of Rockne by Horace Anderson that was scheduled for a Fall number. Maybe we'll publish it anyway. We'll make up our mind about that along in August. Just now we're desolated, not solely because Rockne is dead, nor because our last printed world about him was spirited, but because Rockne's volunteer mounv ers gave such violent proof of the 'over-emphasis" that Rockne strove so hard to put down. We don't think Knute would have cared for that. 8 TI4E CHICAGOAN SAKS-FIFTH AVENUE CHICAGO Saks-Fifth Avenue Introduces to Chicago . . . <^&e SttUUa Vievl A heel that is slim and sharp and pointed ... a heel that gives the impres sion of elegant height but is comfortable withal.

Such a place was inevitable, but why Palm Beach? Why have visitors come in ever in creasing numbers the world over to this particular spot? Why have Wealth and Society decreed it their winter playground? After twenty-eight years of going there, I think I know the answer. Forty years ago Palm Beach was an outpost, a boat landing on Florida's in land waterway, a tangle of swamp and jungle. Then came Henry M. Flagler, the East Coast pioneer. His faith raised great hotels and drove a railroad to the southernmost tip of the United States. He knew with unerring prescience that that narrow strip of land, on lake and ocean, would lure the seeker after sunshine and warmth, rest and play. A QUARTER of a century ago, Palm Beach consisted of The Breakers and The Royal Poinciana Hotels with a few cottages and winter homes close by. Connecting the hotels, the former on the beach, the latter on the lake, was a magnificent half-mile avenue of cocoanut palms and Aus tralian pines. A funny little horse-car ran between the two. One of my earliest memories is that of being al lowed to take the reins. The avenue is still there, the tracks are almost obliterated. The few daily trains came across the lake, even up to the Break ers' porch, and their arrival and de parture were important events. The bicycle was used almost en tirely for getting about the island. Its adaptation into the pedaled wheel chair was a unique and essentially Palm Beach mode of transportation. The smooth swaying motion was de liriously soothing. Visitors always made at least one trip through the jun gle by wheel-chair to Alligator Joe's Farm. Every afternoon Joe, a great negro, would swim out into the lake and come riding back on an alligator. His assortment of reptiles was fascinat ing. All activity in Palm Beach cen tered in those days about the hotels. By DURAND SMITH NOTE: Courtney Borden's arti cle. "Why Palm Beach?", was pub lished in the April u issue. In the morning everyone met at the Breakers' beach, in the afternoon at the Cocoanut Grove tea dance in the gar dens of the Poinciana, in the evening at the orchestral concerts on the porches of the hotels, followed perhaps by dancing in the Palm Room and a look- in at the gambling tables in Bradley's. On Sundays, oddly enough, Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, too, jammed the Poinciana Chapel to hear Dr. George Morgan Ward, one of the most human and sincere men who ever preached a sermon. Sunday nights the hotel concerts always concluded with the Star Spangled Banner and the Doxology. The height of the season was Washington's Birthday with field sports between the colored waiters of the two hotels and the great ball at the Poinciana. SO much then for the past. After the war Palm Beach grew, real tors came, developments sprang up. All over the island good roads were constructed, light, water and telephone service made available. Winter visit ors decided to become winter residents. The jungle was pushed back, clubs were started, golf courses made. Simplicity became complexity. Clubs and the large houses superseded the hotels as fashionable centers. Alli gator Joe's Farm gave way to the Ever glades Club. Motor cars instead of wheel -chairs drew up to Bradley's; private cars occupied the sidings and yachts dropped anchor in Lake Worth. Well, Palm Beach gave people what it wanted in the old days; it gives them what they want now. Year by year its tempo has quickened, its beauty — artificial if you will — has grown. Nation-wide prosperity and the Florida land boom have produced the Palm Beach of today. Health, entertain ment, luxurious ease — these are what Palm Beach is able to offer to a nation apparently eager to receive. A game of tennis and a swim at the Bath and Tennis Club, a round of golf and an unforgettable luncheon at the Seminole, tea or a dinner-dance in the court of the Everglades are all experiences whose enjoyment is enhanced by the colorful, semi-tropical background. Fashionable shops and restaurants and night clubs are there for those who want them. But so are famous sym phony orchestras, renowned musicians, international lecturers and artists. Palm Beach is to some people a goal, to others an escape, and to others a symbol. It is as permanent an institu tion as Wall Street, yet as sensitive to the public. Why Palm Beach? Be cause no place in the world more ad mirably and completely fulfills its func tion. I may sigh wistfully at seeing a midget golf course in the patio of the Bath and Tennis but there is still the blue and white roll of the surf as it breaks along the sands. And down in my garden where the palms lean out across the lake is the night-blooming jasmine. APRIL MASS MEETING April haze, And April rain Strive in vain To quench the torches' scarlet blaze Outside the auditorium door, Or to fling a dampening shroud Around the flaming spirits of the crowd. For despite The gloomy April night, They pour With eagerness into the spacious hall, Until there's not a vacant seat. The gavel bangs — A sudden hush Breaks into applausive cheers As on the stage the candidate appears, And when His speech is over, April's crying from without, Is lost and quite Forgotten as the cowbell clangs, The whistles shriek; Lost in the thunderous masculine shout Of approval and delight, That fills the smoke-greyed room. But then, What have electioneering men To do with April, weeping like a woman, in the gloom? — CHARLOTTE REYNOLDS. 10 TI4E CHICAGOAN & U\ BASEBALL Chicago Cubs and St. Louis, Wriglcy Field, April 18, 19, 20, 21: Cincinnati, May 4, 5, 6, 7; Pittsburgh, May 23, 24, 25, 31; Brooklyn, June 2, 3, 4, 5.

TUE CHICAGOAN n CHICAGO-BEFORE AND AFTER Part The Second By Drs. KUSSELL PKATT and KANSOM SHERMAN, K . A . , M . W . WHAT HAS GONE BKh'ORIi: Wllfurd Glotz;, poor but proud, is working his way through Doolittle University in Zenith. In his Freshman year he becomes enamoured from Tessie Garfinkle, whose Father owns the Livery Stable, known as the Palace Menage. All the horsemen were acquainted with Tessie (at least so we've been told). While stoking the campus furnace one day, Wilfurd discovered a nugget which would not burn. Wilfurd looked at it disdain fully and said "so you won't talk, eh?" Just at that moment he . . . jS[ow go 071 with the story. IN our article of last week we vowed we would not bring in the names of the Everleigh Sisters and we abide by our promise. It is our firm belief that the future of this wonder city, sometimes called the Windy City, is one to indeed ponder over. We have done just that. Strange are the won ders of Nature, as our old grand mother (Miss Fiditch) used to say. Duke straightened up with a con vulsive sob. "You fool, you may think this can go on, but by Heaven. . . ." His Father stroked the ash on the end of his long panatella, but still he did not speak, "My son," he said, "if you hae nae faeythe in the future of Chi cago, where will we all be?" Duke straightened up with a convulsive sob. "You cur, sir," he mumbled, and straightened up with a convulsive sob. Then all was blackness and he knew no more. THE suburbs of Chicago, namely Winnetka and Oak Park, in same of which your narrators both live in strangely enough, have the following tax rates; which might be compared without breaking a leg: Oak Park Winnetka 1930 Mosquitoes and abate ment pro ceedings.. 318,912,406 318,912,408-2 Pupils in sch o o 1 s and Park Districts .. 45,897 Marriages and Di- v o r c e s (and pending).

This is a Chicagoan presentation. The above figures, while they may appear startling to the layman, will drive home with a vengeance the pos sibilities of Chicago's drastic future. It wasn't ten days ago, when a chap came in our office (1719 Daily News Building) and put the problem up to us squarely. He needed help. He wanted us to point the way. And we told him this little story, which we will use to close this week's installment "Radio Artists. Magazine Writers 12 THE CHICAGOAN of Chicago, Before and After, by Dr. Pratt and Dr. Sherman, R. A. and M. W.* This reads like a page from life, which it is, as it happend just last year to the both'n us. And here it is. Right now. WE were seated in the Club Car (name of train on application at this office) when a strange thing happened. You know how sometimes you get the impression that someone is staring at you. Call it physic, if you will. Well, sir, this chap came in and sat down just as you or I would. Wasn't any time at all before Pratt looked at him as he lit his cigaret (the fella who came in) and as he lit it he looked at Pratt (the fella who came in) Pratt kx)ked at Sherman and they both looked at each other. "Strange, isn't it?" said Doctor Pratt. "Quate," said Dr. Sherman, in one monosyllable. "You don't suppose — " said Dr. Pratt, who has an eerie feeling that way. "Quate," said Sherman in a convulsive sob. At that moment "Dinnah's suhved in the dinah in the reah," said a dusky voice. With one lunge we left our strange companion and we have never seen him again to this day. This little story quite convinced our friend that day in our office, and he went out thoroughly sold on the future of Chicago.

THE CHICAGOAN 13 TOWN TALK A Fortnightly Garland of Timely Frivolities Thought for a Spring Morning Good morning, Mr. Milkman, I do approve your chore As your white and clm\mg bottles You deliver at my door. How odd, 0 Mr. Mil\man, It would be, if, instead Just outside of my \itchen Each morn, a horned head Should Moo, while hooves a-clatter Would pound upon my porch As I timidly as\ed of Bossy To let me have two quarts! Vat 69 SOMETHING tells us we should have written this chapter of Town Talk last night instead of today. What a difference a few hours make! Last night we were up on the 41st floor of a Prominent Loop Edifice with a couple of Cronies and a dark bottle oddly labelled Vat 69. Or maybe it was the 69th floor and something labelled Vat 41. Anyway there was an illusion of spaciousness and height, if you know what we mean. The view of your charming city, from the 41st story, and looking through a pair of binoculars marked Vat 69, is certainly superb. That's the kind of office one should have, and if we had only thought to write this chapter of Town Talk up there then (assisted by the Cronies, a sort of mythological people who are part Gnome) you would now have something to read indeed. As a matter of fact, we do remem ber writing this chapter of Town Talk up there, but what with the illusion of spaciousness and grandeur, we threw it out of the window instead of keeping it for the printer. One of the pages stuck on the beehive on the Straus building, below us, and there it still flutters in the breeze. Another page swooped down on the glass roof over the LaSalle street depot, and frightened six engines away. We don't know what happened to the pages about the Brothers trial and the Elec tion. Maybe they changed into blue birds and flew around policeman An thony Ruthy. By RICHARD A T W A T E R What a wonderful city this is, if you can only get far enough in the clouds away from it. •These Benignant Musicians SOMEBODY had appreciatively mentioned Harry B. Smith's story of the musician who wrote a Mass in F and showed it to Victor Herbert, who looked it over carefully and com mented, "Why, it is in F." Which reminded Felix Borowski of the time Meyerbeer's nephew, having completed a requiem mass for his uncle, hopefully showed the manuscript to Rossini. "It would have been better," de cided that worthy, "if you had died, and your uncle had written it." Truth Serum YOU are beginning to hear quite a bit about lie-detectors and "truth serum" as scientific aids to crime detec tion. There is no such thing, of course, as truth serum, presumably taken from the blood of a gentleman who has just described the results of his fishing trip; the reference is to the drug scopolamin, or twilight sleep. This, we are told, makes the subject feel that trying to tell a lie is just too much trouble to think of, and he wearily confesses the truth as the easiest course. A group of professional men, submitting their persons to this drug for purely experi mental purposes at a psychological laboratory, broke down at once, al though we hear that one of them, a lawyer, had to be given an extra dose of scopolamin before the experiment was successful. Lie-detecting machines are of more than one type. One measures your hesitancy when answering questions; another notes the variation in your bloodpressure under cross-examination. We forget who said that none of these new-fangled lie-detectors can beat the old-fashioned wife. zAt It Again THERE'S James Weber Linn, up to his old tricks again; he hadn't had his new column in the Times a week before he misquoted us. "Wel come," he claimed was our message, which we categorically deny. Wel come, indeed. We would as soon have deposited a floral wreath on his desk. What we actually wrote him was "Three rousing cheers." We have some more help to offer. "Linn's Line" sounds well, but why not alternate it, on varying days of the week, with other neat equivalents? Our suggestions are "Weber's Web" and "Jim's Whims." The Poetic Re-porter "LJIS epical odyssey," regretted a I 1 recent Associated Press story, "was ended." "Epical," apparently, was added for the benefit of readers who might not be familiar with the term Odyssey, and probably confused them still more. Readers who know what an Odyssey is, of course, know there is no such word as "epical." Nash on, He Said DAVID H. KENNISTON, in The Chicagoan of March 28: Civic virtue Will never hurtue.

Riquarius, in the present number of Town Talk: Speaking of virtue — Do you mind if I sirtue? [Whereupon, believe it or not, a tank truck just went down the block with the name "Royal Oil Co." on it, instead of "Royal Oyal," as one would expect.] The New Education OUR public school system seems to be getting quite modern. At least the kindergarten children, out our way, come back happily at noontime singing the inspiring words of "Betty Coed," "The King's Horses" and "When It's Springtime in the Rockies." Some of the children's mothers at first were a little worried about this educa tional curriculum, but we passed the word around for the Parent-Teachers' Association to sit quietly as long as the tots were not instructed in the lyrics of "Body and Soul" or "Just a Gigolo." zAs the Boys (Jome Marching home NOW that America has won the World Depression and our brave lads are marching back to their jobs, the hearts of the world may well pause tor a moment's tribute to the great leaders who have brought us safely through those hours of national emotion when the Hun "wolf" was at the Gate "door." While the bands play and the boys march by, let us then take solemn and reverent thought, even as Mr. Re marque in his distant study is penning that greatest of novels to come out of the Depression, All ^uiet from The Peanut Vendor, while somewhere on Broadway a producer seeks a new Louis Wolheim to star in the coming patriotic play, What Price Certificates of De- posit7 disclosing that our brave lads swore horribly in Wall street . . . Well, if nations know how to make war romantic, exciting and colorful, why not dress up our Business Cycles, too, with flag and fanfare? To some extent we did, though at the moment all we can think of is the theme song "G(K)d Times Are Com ing"; whose simpering strains were not, perhaps, a second "Madelon" or "Over There," but which at least were played often enough, while we were hiding in the dugouts from the bombshells of Washington oratory. And there were "Three Little Words" and "Cheerful Little Earful," though nobody seemed to be marching to them with any great zest. Perhaps because there weren't the usual mili tary parades and drillings in training camps. There should have been platoons as well as tunes. It is an inexpli cable mystery why there was so much marching, in uni forms, during the World War and so little during the Business Cycle. What could be more pleasant, when there is nothing better to do, than to squads-right and left' front-into-line under the challenging commands of alert officers? Let's have a lot of marching next time. Where, for that matter, were the slogans, such as "California Fruit Juices, Kept for Six Weeks, Will Win the Depression?" Where, one wonders, were the pacifists all that time, that they did not publish an insinuating song that would have had to be suppressed, such as "I Didn't Raise My Boy to Be an Apple Ven- JifiXro. :'Not the Mrs. Warblington of Manor House Coffee?' dor?" Where were the four- minute speakers against such radical youths as the Un known Humorist who threw the grapefruit against Gen. Rudy Vallec, just as that worthy was about to stiffen THE CHICAGOAN 15 the nation's morale by c r o o n i n g "Won't You Take a Walk With Me?" But coming back to the missing train ing camps: our one severest (hut con structive) criticism of what Henry James presumably meant by "the moral equivalent of war" is that the men of the nation were not at once drafted into barracks far from the bosoms of their families. Army life can be a lot of fun, something like Frank Merriwcll at College, or maybe Frank Merriwell at Paris, or even Frank Merriwell at Philanders' Fields. Anyway, a lot bet ter than staying around the house help ing with the dishes and cutting paper dolls out of defaulted coupons. Why, if the married men alone had marched to the front, if there was a front, dur ing the late Temporary Obscurcment of Prosperity, look at what the women of America could have done to Congress with their voting power. Repealed the Volstead act, leaving the men power less, on their return from service, to do anything about it. A tear, it is true, comes into one's eye to think of Andy Mellon, now chopping wood at Doom . . . But what a grand and glorious De pression it might have been, had it only been turned over to the War depart ment at once, instead of just muddling through. Ah well, we shall not have another chance, they tell me, in our lifetime, for this was the Depression to End Depressions. We still think we should have got a uniform out of it, to hang up in the closet and put on once a year. One thing, however, can and should be attended to at once. Those of us who fought, shoulder to shoulder, during these last memorable months should receive a fitting memo rial for our courage that never faltered during the darkest hours that came be fore the present dawn of a New Era. When do we get our Depression Bonus? This Decadent Decade WHICH reminds us of the radio celebrity Bob Andrews told of, who, finding it was his duty that night to advertise Listerine, confessed he was Just a Gargle-O.

It is the only way i they have of exercising their lungs, stretching their chests, arms and legs. Red in the face, they howl their woe to an unreceptive world. It is unpleasant. Nobody likes to hear a crying poet performing night and morning. But what are you going to do about it7 He must howl. Cry ing is the poet's form of self-expression. I think it is downright mean for a father to complain about a crying poet. His mother does not want the poet to cry. She has done, and is doing all she can to get him to stop. It is a good scheme for the father to try his hand with the poet once in a while and give the mother a rest. Poets need father ing as well as mothering. Or smother ing. Poets cry for food. Poets cry be cause they are in pain. Poets cry because they are uncomfortable. They cry for exercise. They cry to tell you what is wrong with them. If one listens to a poet cry in that spirit all irritation vanishes. The poet is telling us something. If he could say it in pleasant words he would, but he must use what he has, and cry. Seeks Degree by Decree McKINLOCK and Midway cam puses are doubtless tottering sym pathetically as Marquette University is sued by a fair student, a high school teacher who demands her M. A. degree on the ground she completed the re quired work for it and took the exam- THE CHICAGOAN 17 ination, though without a passing mark. If, in these circumstances, a court de crees her the degree, laments a Mar quette dean, "the entire educational system of the country will break down and degrees will become farces." Which promises to be fun. We think the lady, a Miss Keenan, has a case against the educational system, and deserves a degree (though not neces sarily that of Master of Arts) for her ingenuity. Her point, we suppose- and it is odd that no baffled student ever thought of this before- is that she paid her money, took the courses, and ought to have something to show for it. If the education one gets of a college is no good, why pay for it? A disturbing question indeed. In this particular case, however, we think the university might well upset the plaintiff's case by one pertinent hypothetical question such as this, which we offer gratis to Marquette University's legal staff. "If you, as a student, have decided that it is unim portant to flunk a final examination, Miss Keenan, will you promise, as a teacher, to pass all your pupils who flunk exams or otherwise fail to observe these silly academic rules, in the classes you presumably intend to conduct in the future on the strength of your Master's degree?" zJbfoon of Japanese Indifference (by our Tan\a dejpt.)

Harrison, Jr., . . . had appointed General Leroy T. Steward his chief of police." General Steward, as faithful a public servant as Chicago ever had, was appointed chief by Mayor Fred Busse, who became mayor in the spring of 1909, on August 4 of that year, and held office until superseded by Mayor Harrison's appointment of John McWeeny on May 4,1911. I am obligated to dear friends for the rec tification of my blunder, and welcome similar corrections, particularly because it seems to give them so much joy to find me wrong — possibly an uninten tional testimonial to my general accu racy. Returning now to that cheerful and unabashed record of the past, The Sporting and Club House Directory oj Chicago, brought out by Messrs. Ross and St. Clair in 1889, one finds as the last name in the alphabetical list of ''She also installed an open-shelf collection of books' By WALLACE RICE what the preface to the work calls "the quiet, respectable and legitimate estab lishments," that of Miss Frankie Wright at what was then 1 1 8 Third Avenue, between Polk and Harrison Streets. It also fronted on Dearborn Street, its old number 391. This double frontage had its advantages, shared by several other houses in the neighborhood: by day, when Dearborn Street was busy, one entered by Third Avenue, now Plymouth Place; by night, when it was quiet, one went out that way. Of the establishment itself, the Directory says, in the beautiful lan guage at the command of its compilers: "Six boarders; rates $10 and $20. Wine only. One of the elite of the demimonde. The most exclusive pub lic house in the city, and one of the pleasantest. The house is beautifully furnished with a quiet elegance which makes one feel as if they were calling on a princess while one is a guest. Miss Wright herself, is a most excel lent hostess and is always the dignified lady of the house." In connection with such language, the Rev. George A. Bir mingham once said, "I cannot imagine anything more an noying to a respect able, steady-going word than to be called upon sudden ly to undertake work to which it is not accustomed. There ought to be a strong trade union among words." FRANKIE WRIGHT came here from Cincin nati, where she also maintained a similar house. The one here was torn down long ago to make room for a stately busi ness block, where upon she moved to a larger edifice con structed by her at 183 3 Federal Street, on the northeast corner of Nineteenth, near the inter section of Archer Avenue. One of our most celebrated Prairie Avenue mag nates finding occasion to refurnish his stately hrownstonc mansion at just that time, Miss Wright was able to secure for her new house his discarded furni ture, thereby lending to it a certain somewhat awkward atmosphere of ac- cutomedness when visited by some of her wealthier customers. She also in stalled an open-shelf collection of books, which numbered toward the close more than a thousand volumes and further provided it with its generally accepted name of "The Library." The books themselves were almost brazenly not at all such as might reasonably be ex pected to accord themselves with their surroundings, being almost as chaste as the Court of St. James at that time might have prescribed. Indeed, a friend of mine who contributed the now frequently displayed works of Rabelais, Boccaccio, and Margaret of Navarre, discovered that Miss Wright placed, so to speak, three stars on them by keeping them in her own apartment. Miss Wright was, indeed, so far as the visiting public went, "always the dignified lady of the house." She was also, in the judgment of many of the cognoscenti, the best looking woman among the reigning ladies of such houses in Chicago. As such, she exer cised a queenly prerogative in selecting shall we call them princes consort? from time to time as occasion re quired. One of my dearest friends was so singled out in the later 'Eighties, but after having the time of his life was compelled to abdicate because the lady insisted upon giving him fairly regal gifts from time to time as a testi monial to his qualities, and quarrelled bitterly with him when he refused them. One must draw the line some where, he felt, not only at compensa tion but also at quarreling. THE life sought to be depicted here always dwelt near the fringe of tragedy, as previously noted. Among Miss Wright's admirers was a man of wealth and station, living in New Eng land but frequently in Chicago on busi ness. Without warning he died in her house one night. She had his body taken to his hotel room and made the THE CHICAGOAN A presentation ol one man ' productions from the Foster Custom Shoe Department Anions tke Foster Modes for Spring trie Shoes illustrated arc thoroughly representative of the highest development of Custom Shocmaking.

Further, she accompanied it to the pleasant Massachusetts town that was his home. His family never knew the identity of the quiet woman, veiled and dressed in black, who at tended the funeral there.

She sold her house to Georgia Spencer, who also retired with an abundant property, and at last re ports was living in California, that land of the spree and home of the pave. The house itself, when I went there in April, 1919, for The Evening Journal, had not been allowed to go to ruin like the other similar houses round about, but was in the lonely care of two old colored women and an equally faithful Airedale.

And it's an ideal location, too, don't you think? What with so much essential water around it, and so much space. And don't you believe for a minute that space isn't important when motor boats and cruisers are displayed. Navy Pier has space; it provides, on its upper deck, the world's longest ex hibition hall, which is just as well, be cause on April 24 the second Chicago National Motor Boat Show will be opened there. We hadn't gone out to Navy Pier before, because, well, you know how uncertain the weather has been lately, and not having sprung from Cape Cod folk we hadn't fancied being caught in any of the several promised, but for tunately (for us anyway, because we might have gone out there, you know) indefinitely (oh, well, till next year at least) detained blizzards. But when we finally did make the trip to pick up bits of information about the Motor Boat Show we were pretty glad about it all. In fact when we arrived at Navy Pier and saw the permanent boat display we thought we had misread the scheduled dates and were attending the show itself. But no, it was only the permanent display, and we did learn facts about the coming show. Nearly 100,000 square feet of floor space, carrying more than one hundred different types of boats, will be used by the exhibitors, and the exhibits themselves, which will extend for three- quarters of a mile on the Pier, will be valued at more than half a million dollars. In addition to the boats, the exhibitors will show marine engines, outboard motors, hardware, acces sories, magazines, china and even but tons for the jackets of sea-going people. THERE will be at least twenty-one cruisers. The present line-up gives assurance of that many and all the precincts haven't been heard from yet. A cruiser, by the way, by the dock or by the foot, is a boat which provides complete sleeping and living accommo dations. A Chris-Craft cruiser, for example, may be had in one of a dozen different models, varying in length from thirty-one to thirty-eight feet, with single or double cabin and open or closed bridge with all the comforts of a wealthy father-in-law's home. But cruisers, though they form the backbone and the most imposing ex hibits of any boat show, arc really a small part of the whole marine display. Exhibited along both walls (there will be two long center aisles) of the hall will be more boat types than any show has had this year. The Chris-Craft Corporation will show six models of runabouts and three cruisers. Gar Wcx>d will have four runabouts there and Wheeler Shipyard will have three cruisers on display. Dee Wite, Inc., will show a twenty- four foot cruiser, four runabouts and a skeleton model showing construction. The American Car and Foundry Com pany will exhibit three cruisers of thirty, thirty-eight and forty foot lengths. The Hacker Boat Company will have three runabouts and a 3^ foot commuter. The Century Boat Company will show fifteen models from the fastest type racing boat to the fam ily runabout. The Horace E. Dodge Boat and Plane Corporation will dis play five runabouts and at least a dozen other manufacturers will have exhibits. Several special exhibits installed by municipal and naval bodies and clubs will be of interest to boatmen and to the public in general. One official exhibit will show graphically and in great detail the tremendous program, planned and in process of construction, of the new boat harbor development about Chicago. And it is because of this program, the Motor Boat Mart and the annual National Motor Boat Show that Chicago will submit its bit as ideal center for the boat industry.

BOYDEN IT was a big night at the Illinois when The Theatre Guild remem bered this center of culture, so long forsaken, and burst out in all its glory with Elizabeth the Queen. There was not a vacant seat in the house and hardly a soft shirt. Ashton Stevens, Gail Borden and Fritz; Blocki left their working clothes at home to appear in full evening regalia. When accused of treason by Comrades Collins, Bul- liet and Lewis of the Slouch Hat Party, they admitted that they felt un comfortable in citizens' clothes when watching King Alfred, the Lunt, and Queen Lynn do their royal acting. And royal it was. Miss Fontanne gives no hostage to beauty in her amazing transformation into the Vir gin Queen. The flaming red hair, the beak-nose, high cheek-bones, protrud ing lower lip and sharp chin arc all present in uncompromising verisimili tude. Nor does her acting truckle to any romantic notions of the imperious monarch. From high regality she passes through vulgarity and sensuous yielding to shrewd ruthlessness. Her final scene with Essex before the exe cution is stunning in its sweeping power. As the ill-fated Essex, Mr. Lunt gives a competent performance in the best Luntian manners and with all the best Lunt mannerisms. While I lost all sense that Queen Elizabeth was Lynn Fontanne in grease paint, Essex was to me always Alfred Lunt -charming, easy and intelligent, but a trifle soft for the fire-eating general who wanted to be another Henry V. Even when he starts to cut out a man's tongue, you never believe he really will do it. Maxwell Anderson has done a good job on the bcxik. Blending a note of poetry with touches of forthright mo dernity and sprinkling the whole with ribald Elizabethan carnalities, he has accomplished the very difficult task of concocting an historical play which acts. His sense of humor over his own efforts is neatly brought out in the Queen's very modern line about Will Shakespeare, "Does he expect to make money out of an historical play'.'" Windy orations and involved political talk are notable by their welcome ab sence. Another typical quip, "The art of governing is in doing nothing," struck a responsive chord in the minds of the pre-election crowd who were all planning to vote on the morrow for Monsieur Cermak. As might have been anticipated, The Guild has spared nothing to make the production lavish and stately. Elizabeth and Essex rarely embrace in the presence of less than four footmen. The supporting cast contains many well etched characterizations. I was particularly struck with Arthur Hughes as the conniving Cecil, whose descend ants are now marrying American heir esses as fast as they become of age (I mean the Cecils, not the heiresses). Whitford Kane has the chore of doing a bit of Falstaff from Henry IV to amuse the Queen before Essex is to die. He does well, but unfortunately few eyes are off Miss Fontanne during the scene. Percy Waram makes a hand some and dignified Raleigh (of cloak and suit fame), and Morris Carnovsky leads you to believe that maybe Bacon did write Shakespeare. He is such a subtle old bird. A kissable and much kissed lady-in-waiting has the right ingenue in Dorothy Patten. With productions like Elizabeth the Queen the theater passes into the realm of Art. ¦Brother Elks ** IUST stay and have one drink." KJ How many times have you said this, and then found your guest lingered for five or six libations? Or did you ever invite a pal for a week end and have him stay a week? Frank Craven must have had some such ex perience in altruism, else he could never have written the delightfully satiric comedy. That's Gratitude, now engaged at the Blackstone, in gently ribbing the average middle-class folk who elect Hoover to the White House and themselves to the Rotary Club. Mr. Craven is a kindly fellow. He can take the one hundred percent American and without malice drama tize his solemn pomposities and domes tic imbroglios into uproarious humors. There is not a drop of bitterness in a decade of his output. When the curtain rises on That's Gratitude, George W. Barbier, cast as THE CHICAGOAN 25 a prototype of the well-known George W. Babbitt, is sick. Stage-drunks arc common occurrences, but stage-sicks arc rarer. And nothing I recall has equalled in rareness the utter, abysmal misery of Mr. Barbier when he lifts his well-upholstered frame from his bed of pain. Oh, how sick that man was! He was sure he would have died, but for the ministrations of Bob (Allan Dinehart), a tank-town impresario, temporarily down on his luck, and for tuitously in the next bed-room. "There isn't another guy in the world woulda done for me what you did, Bob. You must come home with me and meet the folks." Three weeks later Bob is still the house-guest, in spite of locked humi dors, vanishing bottles and hints sharp enough to pierce the skin of a pachy derm. The fun evoked from this basic situation is warmly human and spon taneous, but hardly varied enough for the whole evening. So Bob becomes the center of family problems involving a nice boy engaged to the elder daugh ter and in love with the younger. De spite the fact that the face of the older girl convinces Bob that she is "essen tially a radio artiste," her voice and $7000 (supplied by the reluctant fiance) lead him to hire her for one of his shows. There is some let down in the complications of the last act, but not enough to detract seriously from an evening of clean joyousness. Barbier and Dinehart are so good that they could carry the show with out much help. But the others are equally competent in their lesser op portunities. Ross Alexander, although a bit too polished for Hutchinson, Kansas, gives a deft interpretation of the juvenile. The long suffering wife is a part which might easily be com pletely negative, but Maida Reade im bues her with distinct individuality. Myrtle Clark gets a lot out of the "ugly duckling" daughter. If we must have domestic comedies, let us have Frank Craven write them. Hi-f acker's Moll HOT-DAMN! What a sizzling baby Lenore Ulric turns out to be in Pagan Lady, her latest passion flower in full bloom at the Erlanger. As Dot Hunter, found as a baby in an ash-can wrapped in a copy of the Con gressional Record and now living on Florida's torrid coast with a bird so tough that his spit bounces, she makes her Lulu Belle seem positively nunnish. In her husky contralto voice she gargles 40 days — without food . . • but only 4 days without water! WITHOUT sufficient water the earth be comes a parched and barren waste. Without sufficient water man, too, be comes parched, low in spirits and low in health. "Drink more water!" physicians say and the vigor of full-flowered health is certain to follow. Nature offers you a water of unusual merit in the building and maintaining of happy health. It is Corinnis Spring Water, the finest, purest water that ever bubbled from a woodland spring. Corinnis is a clear, sparkling water that is decidedly pleasant to taste, and richly en dowed with minerals essential to sturdy well- being. Calcium, magnesium, iron and other precious elements are present in every glass to do you good. Be kind to your body! Drink Corinnis, from six to eight glasses daily. Thousands of fami lies right now are enjoying greater health and greater happiness because they follow this sound advice. Corinnis is put up in handy half gallon bottles for home use.

Whew!! Into this tropical situation wander two Evangelists, an uncle and his nephew. The boy resembles those clean lads who man the elevators in near North side apartments and work by day at Moody Institute. Moreover he has dreams about beautiful nude women who turn into marble pillars. And there is an atheistic doctor about the premises who hates to see anyone repressed and frustrated. At any mo ment I expected the Marines to march in and the rain to pour down. But soldiers are out of style. So rxxitleg- gers are substituted as foils. And the only rain introduced is a torrent of hot kisses. If you read none of the news paper reviews of this drama, you can now enter The Chigagoan's big guessing contest. The riddle is: "From what play does Pagan Lady derive most of its material?" The answer will be found in my last paragraph. If you guessed right, go to the head of the class. But let us get hack to Lcnore Ulric. As long as our urban and suburban life moves the tame course characteris tic of this present epoch there will be a demand for vicarious acquaintance with such lurid, exotic dames as Miss Ulric is wont to portray. And no one excels her in the role of the fiery cour tezan. Underneath all the conven tional trappings of seduction she has the vibrant spark of the real actress. Leo Donnelly, as the Doctor, gives a performance worthy of better material. The Evangelists are convincing enough as played by Russell Hardie and the veteran Thomas Findlay. Pagan Lady is a few drops of Rain and a couple of bails of White Cargo. No use warning you that it is a pretty cheesy play. You will go anyway - to see Lenore Ulric. She is worth it. Lady Chatterley's Mother-in-T.a-iv THE Goodman is kissing us good bye with a turgid bit of drama turgy yclept The Sacred Flame, a brain-child of that prolific Englishman, W. Somerset Maugham. We hear that this production may mark the end of the Repertory Theatre. Critics and columnists have been tossing about rumors, prophecies, lamentations and exhortations in reckless profusion. At this writing the question rests in the foggy realms of speculation. There is no space here for a general discussion of the Goodman problem. I can only voice The Chicagoan's hope that the Institute will continue to regard its purpose as broader than the mere acquisition of more paint and clay. After all, what if the Theater does cost some money? Jolly testators are always making possible another Rembrandt. But it takes more than a bequest to build up what the Good man has created over the years in the field of visual and auditory art. As to The Sacred Flame — there was a day in the theatre when all great drama had to send the audience out into the night in heated argument about "her right to sin, when she loved so much," or "his duty to forgive." They called them "problem plays." Nowadays no one gets very excited over such trivial questions of behavior ism. So Mr. Maugham passes us a tough one in discussing a mother's duty to put her paralyzed son out of his misery, when daughter-in-law is en ceinte by her other son. A whole eve ning of such intellectual pabulum would be too awfully lugubrious. So a tense element of mystery is intro duced in Act II, centering about the cripple's devoted nurse, who suspects dirt has been done, when it all looks like a nice, clean heart attack. Al though the business is highly theatrical, there is considerable grip in the inter play of accusation and suspicion. The acting is spotty. Ellen Root, casting aside her customary suavity and charm, projects with strong persuasive ness the righteousness of a sex-starved spinster. The worldly mother who in vokes a higher morality is acted by Judith Lovvry of the Stuart Walker Company. She does an excellent job, holding the pathos within bounds of effective and touching restraint. On the other hand, Katherinc Krug and Harry Mervis make only theatrical fig ures of the wheel-chair husband and his warm hl(x>ded wife. If there is anything in omens, The Sacred Flame is not a brilliant enough conflagration for a funeral pyre. So let us hope it is only "au revoir" until next Autumn. The Outer Man Hosts in Mutiny THE crowning insult was achieved when women began hurling them selves into those resplendent things they call hostess pyjamas. This busi- THE CHICAGOAN 27 ness of making a mere colorless back ground out of the poor man who pays the bills has gone far enough. At last there is hope — and color — on the horizon. Word of the new "Host Suit" has been drifting this way from England and the east recently but we didn't realize how handsome and refreshing the idea is until we saw the Jerrems creations. Tailored of a blue fabric with ma roon satin lining, maroon lapels and seam-stripes, this outfit has dash while it retains dignity. Jerrems also show it in dark green trimmed with maroon or maroon trimmed with green. The coats are all tailored in a dou ble-breasted style which permits the elimination of the waistcoat in summer. And Jerrems will tailor them to your individual order at a fairly reasonable cost. WALKING into Sulka's on the boulevard is like being trans ported into one of the continent's most exclusive men's shops. One of the newest in exclusive ideas is the sports handkerchief. Imagine a huge white handkerchief, 28 inches by 28 inches. Picture a very wide col ored border around it and create a centerpiece of golfers, or airplanes, or tennis players — or yes, even violators of the 18th amendment. There's your new idea, and to my mind it's one of the most unique novelties I've seen in some time. The selection of borders includes bright shades of red, green, blue or tan. THERE are two things to do about ties that fray too soon about the knot, I was told at Anderson Brothers. One is to wet the under-edgc of both sides of the opening of your collar be fore putting your tie on in the morning — and the other is to buy Irish Poplin ties. These thrifty tics from the store which features Scotch-Mist Coats (more about these in a second) are made of a staunch fabric which com bines silk and wool. They knot very well, and wear and wear and wear. As for colors, you may have genuine Scotch plaids as well as British regi mental stripes along with a large col lection of other neat patterns. Those Scotch Mist coats are dandies. Water proofed by their weave they make a perfect coat for sudden April showers. You'll like the colors and models.

Company Designers and Manufacturers of Fine Furniture for Fifty Years 608 S. Michigan Bl. IT was Paid in Full Week in the cinema and a goodly crowd was there. Claudette Colbert was the sac rificial wife at the Chicago, Frederic March the modern and young but equally rich and noble version of the blasphemous old sea captain who kept theatregoers up late in 1910. Barbara Stanwyck was the pay candidate at the State-Lake, Ricardo Cortex the payee. Miss Colbert's picture was called Honor Among Lovers, Miss Stanwyck's was Ten Cent.s a Dance, Monroe Ows ley was the embezzling husband of both ladies, and both pictures were Paid in Fidl at heart. The censors slashed the big moments of both pic tures impartially. It is quite impossible, of course, for such players as the Misses Colbert and Stanwyck and the Messrs. March and Owsley to perform for an hour and fifteen minutes without providing a considerable amount of minute-to- minute entertainment. This they do in these pictures. And, of course, if you have happened to miss all previous productions of Paid \n Full, stage or screen, either of these is good enough. IF you've been tiring of the domestic difficulties of the Colberts, Stan wycks and Chattertons, and if you've missed in the talking pictures a certain intangible something that the silent pictures had which the stage never possessed, go and see Slippy. I know of no grander way for you to spend an hour than in contemplation of this grandly simple story of a small town boy. Jackie Searl is Slippy. Skippy is, I would guess, ten or eleven. He has a father and a mother who are about what fathers and mothers of boys ten or eleven arc. The picture records the boy's relationships with his friends, with his parents, with a dog and a dog catcher, and with the immense com plexities of being a normal hoy of ten or eleven. Skippy \s experiences in clude none of the fanciful adventures of Tom Sawyer. S\ippy has none of the adult artifice of the Our Gang comedies. Nor is Slippy a 1931 edi tion of The Kid or Pec^'.s Bad Boy or Freckles. S\ippy is, I'm trying to say without telling too much, a superbly undrama- tized picture of a small boy. I, whose Skippy is a Patricia Ann of half his years, would not forego Slippy to see Marlene Dietrich, Calvin Coolidge and an all-star cast in Peter Arno's Hullabaloo. See if you would. MISS DIETRICH, by the way, is more credible, human, hence en tertaining, in Dishonored than in Morocco or The Blue Angel. She is, it may be well to add, no less colorful, sensuous, disportivc, and surely no more rigorously moral. Dishonored is the better picture because it tells a more plausible story and ends without the pseudo-sob which has been Director Von Sternberg's hallmark. Dishonored has to do with war, as between Austria and Russia and as between Miss Die trich and Victor McLaglen, and most of the events pictured could have happened. IT is not entirely the fault of the players that The Coyiquering Horde seems so bad. The all but incredible fact seems to be that someone, some where along the line leading from studio to screen, decided it would be a better picture if the penultimate se quence were shunted back to a point about midway between beginning and end. This operation, depriving the final half hour of the picture of any logical reason for existence, lends the production the distinction of presenting the longest anti-climax in cinema his tory. Restored to normal sequence, it might be quite good. WITH Its a Wise Child Marion Davies establishes herself as the screen's ablest' actress of sophisticated farce. I'm glad. I suffered with Miss Davies in the long ago when she sought to out-Mary Mary Pickford. I welcomed and cheered her ascent to the costumed grandeur of When Knighthood Was in Flower. It was pretty hard to go along with her through the rowdy buffoonery of comedies directed by Charles (Fatty Arbuckle) Goodrich, but I stuck. What a pity she didn't start with the Bachelor Father kind of thing in the first place. This is her stuff. If you THE CHICAGOAN 29 like it, you ought to like it as she does it. EDWARD ROBINSON, seen and heard frequently of late in the supporting casts of pictures requiring a vividly vicious undertone, rises to the top of the outlaw heap as the dark star of Little Caesar, the best, if there can be a best, of the gang pictures. I suppose there is no reason why the colorful lives and loves of the big gun and gin men should not be dramatized, unless it be that so much of the drama tizing is so bad. Whether or no, the dramatizing is not bad in Little Caesar. On the contrary, it is a high grade treatment of a low grade subject, based on a plot as concisely drawn and compactly executed as can be desired. There is no reek of sentiment, no stench of propaganda, there is only a direct recital of a very bad individual's rise to power and his fall. It is all accomplished by bullets. If you wish to know the worst there is to know about the gang trade, as told in the best telling it has had, see Little Caesar. Mr. William Haines, my favorite reason for staying away from cinemas, is about town again, this time in and as A Tailor Made Man. You recall the story of course. It is modernized within an inch of its plot, boasting even a dissertation on the depression, and yet it has a number of moments of real interest.

The musical columns of the dailies have already mulled over the problem a bit, and the regular patrons of Orchestra Hall have been handed neat slips of paper on which to record their sentiments. The change has been suggested before in the his tory of the orchestra. It has never at tracted so much attention, however, as at this time, and it seems likely to take place. How the w. k. depression has effected the size of the Symphony audiences is a secret hidden in the archives of the Orchestral Association. The Friday afternoon concerts are al ways jammed, but the houses have been only fair on Saturday nights. It is the firm conviction of several of the magnates of the orchestra that week end attendance has fallen off, not be cause people haven't money to spend on symphony concerts, but because the orchestra public in general doesn't approve of Saturday night concerts. I suppose there are gods of the gal lery and pit that wouldn't miss their weekly orgy if the Symphony played at midnight in the middle of the stock yards. But the average music lover demands that his convenience be suited and I can think of a number of reasons why Saturday night might not suit him. In the first place the orchestra draws its audiences from a pretty large terri tory. The Winnetka devotee must either kill time all Saturday afternoon until his wife can get downtown for dinner, or go home, come back to Orchestra Hall and go home again. Then, too, the institution of the week end takes more of a toll with each suc ceeding season. Americans, rich and poor, feel the Friday-to-Monday spirit. And their myriad excursions to Lake Forest, Tamarack, and Geneva don't help the orchestra's box-office. For those who stay in town Saturday night is party night. And many a potential Stock fan prefers to take it easy until nine or ten o'clock and then sally forth to speak-easy, studio brawl or a late Garbo. But the symphony begins at S:H on the dot and makes the lag' gard wait desolately in the foyer. It is true that Thursday is Lizzie's night out. But a little diplomacy would convince Lizzie that Wednesday might do just as well. Unless, of course, Lizzie is a subscriber. In that case I guess you'd just have to fight it out with her. Or stay home and play the Victrola. MITURBI, that Parisian Span- , iard who drives racing cars, wears brilliant neckties, and plays marvellous jazz, was at last presented to us in piano recital. Splendidly alone, without benefit of orchestra, he is a very commanding, unconventional fellow. Though he owns a large and sensitive technique he splatters a few wrong notes here and there just for the devil of it. And if he is too excited at his own playing he is apt to drive into a bravura finish like an avalanche with little heed for anything but the gen eral effect. With such displays of temperament one might almost think him old-fashioned. Yet analysis of his interpretation stamps him as a modern and original pianist. Curiously enough the greater the pianistic demands made upon him, the more easily he seems to handle them. He played the shop worn Campanella at breakneck speed and with consummate lightness. I have never heard anyone do it as well. That the Handel Variations were not more interesting can be blamed on Brahms rather than Iturbi. And when he toyed with Albeniz, Falla, Debussy and Tansman his playing bore the undeniable hall-mark of genius. THE twenty-fourth program of the orchestra will be remembered as one of the best of the season. Begin ning with the noble F major Concerto of Handel, it subsequently wandered far into the twentieth century with excerpts from Berg's Wozzec\, and concluded with the Divine Poem of Scriabin and the Beethoven Violin Concerto, Heifetz at the bow. Berg, whose sombre opera has lately been mounted in Philadelphia, does not scruple to explore every cranny of modern composition. A disciple of Schonberg, he nevertheless is not as cold a chap as his master. His music TUECUICAGOAN 31 is bitterly honest, shot with imagina tion, and deeply felt. Coupled with Buchner's drama, a piece obviously far ahead of its time (about 1840), this music must be overwhelming. But I fancy we will never hear the complete Wozzec\ in Chicago. As for Heifetz, the greatest of the Auerites, there is little left to say. About him and his violin playing there is something of Olympian serenity. His musicianship is so warm, yet so perfect that, no matter what he plays, it is only necessary to sit back and bask in the golden sun of his genius. THE season begins to peter out. On the Ottian calendar there are still a few big moments left. Reinald Werrenrath, for them as likes him, on April 19. And on the same date E. Robert Schmitz, who specializes in the moderns. On April 26 Hofmann will fill the engagement he was forced to cancel earlier in the season. And don't forget Noble Cain and his a cappella choir at Orchestra Hall on the night of May 13. He works quietly enough right among us, and he's a great choir master. The Outer Man [begin on page 26] AT A. Starr Best I discovered a < clever innovation in swanky heather-mixed sweater sets that I think will have a place in the sun this sea son. Besides being snugly warm for the comfort of the early golfer this set consists of sweater, hose and in some instances a \nitted tie which is exactly the same as the border on the sweater and the hose. Quite original — and the colors are all smart, solid tones. A N interesting window in Peck and /V Peck's attracted me in my jaunt around town. Red and gray was the color scheme. Red tie (wine-colored it was); gray shirt; maroon hose; ma roon handkerchief with a white center. Several other combinations were dis played and there was a silver and maroon tie that was a knockout. Also noticed a window of tab collar attached white broadcloth shirts at Car son, Pirie, Scott's Men's Store. It's a significant feature, for I feel tab collars will have quite a vogue this summer.

Another way to put their heads together over the last line it would of course be to call it an of a poem of Edwin Arlington Robin son's about lost anchors. In other words, cross word puzzles were merely too simple for them. Furthermore, these people don't bother much about detective stories or even about front page crimes. They know where to find better ax murders, wife murders, and ghosts with a reason, crimes of which they can be their own detectives, sleuthing from line to line not so much for the murderer as for what, exactly, may be supposed to have happened. The complete poems of Edwin Ar lington Robinson occupy a thousand advance in maturity. Hornby's (Not Rogers) FOR those who thought there wasn't enough hardship in Little America, Snow Man arrives to make up the defi cit. In Snow Man there is nothing but hardship. Literally nothing: not even one poor lone scientific discovery. John Hornby specialized on the Bar ren Lands of Canada. It was thought that if he ever sat down to it he could write a book about them.

By raphy, but it is also such a thrilling record of good old days that you will want to drive out at once to contem plate the University of Chicago where these happenings occurred. For Sylvia Townsend Warner's Opus 7, you of course need no alibi: Miss Warner sometimes writes novels, and this is pretty nearly a novel. Be a trifle vague, though, in asking for it. The truth has already begun to leak out. Namely that it's about an old lady who grew flowers to make money to buy gin, and thereby found life its own circle of perfection. I shall not attempt to tell more: One New York reviewer who was explicit about that incident where the old lady pours gin on the grave got it wrong: showing canoe, the furs got maggot ty before Hudson's Bay and there wasn't even any money in the excursion. But the Bengal Lancer kept notes, complete notes; nothing forgotten, not even the unappetizing things for which Hornby used his knife when not cutting caribou steak with it. In other words, as fmtless an expe dition as ever dragged its half starved way to safety. But somehow you keep on reading. *A»d That's That FOR several years now the name of Charles Fort has been heard among numerologists and in general among those who like things a little stranger, and simpler, than science makes them. that it is always unsafe to attempt to More recently it has penetrated to those who think it wrong to send children to Sunday Sch<xil, and wonder if with science taking on the prerogatives of religion, they ought not to keep them out of science class too. On the face of it, Lo! his latest, is translate poetry into prose. Edna St. Vincent Millay is of course not so much a poet nowadays as an investment. Her first editions are still going up. But look sharp: Fatal Inter view, though not yet out as I write, is already in its second printing. What just a congeries of strange happenings TME CHICAGOAN that have slipped into the newspapers and slipped out again. Rains of frogs or stones. But before you are through, the stars have crept close enough for week-ending, and we have already had visitors from them, Caspar Hauser, for instance, and Cagliostro. Dorothy Arnold turns into a swan, and the deaths following Tutankhamen will bear investigation. The author swears, however, that he doesn't believe a word of it himself. You can see what he means, though, about our so often being misled by com mon sense. Take, for instance, Thornc Smith's TVjght Life of the Gods. The plain truth is that the hero has brought to life some statues of ancient deities, and is crossing town with them. But, as some are undraped and others very little draped, the traffic cop jumps to a hasty conclusion about Earl Carroll. While the clothing merchant jumps to an equally sensible but likewise erro neous conclusion about strip poker. ^Africa View Wish OCCASIONALLY some real nov elty turns up. This time it is a travel book by a biologist. You be gin taking notice while still on board ship; he compares the modern young man to a Mexican axolotl. And pres ently he stands in front of Kilimanjaro and exclaims about how fortunate we are to live in a geological age that has scenery. In, some eras, it seems, the surface of the earth was as flat as an elephant's hide, and how do we know it won't be so again. In fact, after reading Julian Huxley's Africa View, you can't help wishing that Mary Day Winn's Adam's Rib had also been written by a biologist. As the book stands, it is simply a femi nized American Bandwagon, a game of statistical ping-pong, which bandies such startling facts as that we spend five millions a day on beauty, and that most chorus girls nowadays have been through college and read Nietszche be tween cues. All it needs, however, to be really exciting is that the author should stand off and exclaim how for tunate we are to be living in the period between a male domination, when soci ety was as flat as an elephant hide, and an impending female domination when it will probably be flatter still. *Arlen We All?

Men Disl\\e Women starts with the four kinds of very rich people: those with Dutch names, those with French titles as a result of their grand father having been Jewish, those who bootleg, and those who have been mayor. Of these four kinds the author selects samples, and welds them into a vicious circle. That is: the Dutch wife of the French nobleman takes herself so seriously that her husband seeks re laxation in the bootlegger's crowd, while his brother becomes involved with the ex-mayor's daughter, and the bootlegger commits suicide because a woman turns out to have had a past.

But what pleasant little furs they are! Manipulated and styled to look as fresh and summery as any daffodil. There is certainly noth ing bulky about these wisps of capes that we are going to toss lightly about our shoulders of a summer evening or over a daytime dress when the breeze off the lake is a little too smart for comfort. But even if they weren't as comfortable as they are we'd probably wear them anyway because they are so darn good-looking. The tiny eapelets which Revillon Freres are showing arc newer than anything we have had in years and awfully practical. For instance, a bit of broadtail which just covers the shoulders and is banded in white will do wonders for a simple little street dress and will carry out the trend for covered shoulders in evening dress. Then they have some tricky triangles of black caracul or white, which are thrown about the shoulders and pulled nonchalantly through a slit at one side. These and a lot of other short, flat fur scarf effects they call Sunday evening scarves but they are just as effective with your collarless suit or street dress as they are in the evening. Besides the capes and scarves there is going to be much to-do about sepa rate little jackets of light, pliable furs. The little fur coat makes the ideal evening wrap for spring and cool sum mer evenings and Revillon show sev eral beautiful ones in black caracul as soft as heavy satin, straight and slim to the hips with flaring mousquetaire sleeves. Another short coat has a tiny cape which seems to shave inches off the hips. And there is a splendid white caracul jacket with elbow length sleeves which would ma\e any costume. For street wear with either a skirt or dress there is a little affair of brown and white, the fur being summer er mine flanks and very new, which has dolman-like sleeves so that the coat blouses a bit and then is gathered snugly to the waist where it flares again into a tiny ruffled peplum. The whole thing is chic as the dickens with its very slight Victorian feeling. A LL coats, of course, don't end at the waist or the hips and youTl TMECWICAGOAN 35 like the distinctive street coats that Revillon Freres do in fabrics, with and without furs. The fabrics arc all im ported, new soft tweeds, chongellas and the basket-weavy effects that the smartest coutourieres have evolved. The coats are very full as to skirt, in the Vionnet manner, but the fulness drops gracefully from below the hips, leaving that line nice and slim. Many have the wide full armholes which do still more to slenderize the hip girth. All in all, whether you want a fur trimmed coat in the elegante feeling or a swagger furless coat you ought to sec this collection. HATS being to coats as White Rock is to Scotch the survey of Ferle Heller's creations added a further fillip to the afternoon. Ferle Heller holds forth at Rena Hartman's, always with engaging new ideas and exquisite workmanship. In hats this year every thing is new; the fabrics, the designs, the manner of wearing them. In fab rics you find interesting weaves of wool and straw like heavy crochet work, belting ribbon, soft dull straws and shiny rough ones. Even the rough straws that are used in sailors, how ever, are soft in feeling and pliable enough to be gathered and tucked and twisted in the artful way of the season. The designs are exciting. There are Agnes' crushy little caps of wool which cover about a third of the head but go all the way in smartness. There are the Watteau-ish trifles very shallow as to crown with a lift over the left eye and a swoop of the right brim. There is Agnes' graceful wide-brimmed hat with its crown of white belting and the brim of fine black straw. At the back the inside of the brim is faced in the white, giving a very flattering and youthful frame to the face — a perfect hat for summer afternoons. And sailors! In rough straw with a rakish stiff ribbon ornament perched in front or a crystal quill at the side there is no higher fashion than this for spring suits and trig coats. Surprisingly, too, they are easy to wear and not at all trying as were the stiff old sailors of yore. Before passing a verdict on any hat this year, of course, you must toss your inhibitions to the winds, pull it on in a slant, tilted down towards the right eye and sweeping back off the left ear, jaunty and blithe and with a twinkle in your eye. It's an art and it takes prac tice but the result is devilish distracting once you get it. Three Luxurious Apartments I I I JCjach apartment is in a de luxe Building with well-trained staff.

SKILLMAN Sheridan Road at Surf Street bittersweet 3800 L BEAUTY The Glad Eye Again By M AKCIA VAUGHN THEY have taken so much punishment in the past few years that one sometimes won ders why more of us aren't trotting about with glass eyes instead of glad ones. As if the ordinary strain to whieh all eyes are sub jected weren't enough, what must we do but skin back any sheltering locks, perch our hats way back on the skull, and stare constantly into a dar ling world! For two years this has been going on and we may thank our lucky stars that this season promises to be a little kinder to us. Some hats really have brims. It's a wise woman who sees that she has at least one of these kinder hats in her wardrobe for her off days, but it's a still wiser one who sees that there are no oif days. Eyes respond so touchingly to so lit tle attention that it is downright cruel not to think of them for just a few min utes a day. (Especially since they avenge themselves so wickedly for ne glect — by dimming their glow, by en couraging tell-tale lines and crowsfeet, by shaking off lashes, and turning pinky instead of white.) The first steps towards young eyes and glad ones are preventive; the sec ond steps arc enhancing. Since no en hancing measures are any good what ever without the foundation of bright healthy eyes we must consider swiftly the things one should do to achieve and keep that good foundation. Every night of their lives, but especially in spring and summer when wind and bright sun and whirling dust are con stant sources of irritation, the eyes should be gently cleansed. With an eyecup or dropper wash out all the tiny grains of dust that cause those ugly bloodshot veins and soothe the tired nerves. The eyewash must, of course, be extremely gentle and I am stressing the names of good ones here because the choice is an inv port a 11 1 o n e. Kathleen Mary Quinlan who has made such a thor' ough study of eye care has a lovely soothing Eye Bath. Another restful and ex tremely bland lo- tion is Dorothy Gray's Eye Wash; Valaze Eye Lotion by Helena Rubin stein is equally delightful, splen did for eyes strained by long hours on country roads, the golf course or tennis courts. There are other excellent ones -Frances Denney's Eye Lotion, Eliza beth Arden's Eye Lotion, and the Du Barry Lotion. THIS is the first simple step for all normal eyes, and the lotion should be used as faithfully as you brush your teeth. For special condi tions there are more helpful treatments. After too much squinting in the sun or when clouds of dust have particularly inflamed eyes, after synthetic evenings or sustained reading, there are washes and eye packs to banish the red, in flamed look and bring back the fresh sparkle that snaps about ten years off your age just like that. Arden's Crystalline Eye Drops arc wonderfully relieving when you're go ing out to dinner in an hour and your eyes look as if they need ten hours' sleep. These drops, while they soothe, also remove the pink, watery look, and the whites of your eyes become bright and clear and all rested kxiking. And for terribly tired evenings, when you have shadows, circles, and that ''burned in the blanket" feeling, try ten or fif teen minutes of rest under a refreshing herbal eye pack. You will find eye packs made by Kathleen Quinlan, Elizabeth Arden, Dorothy Gray and Helena Rubinstein. They all embody healinsi herbs and fragrant essences and THE CHICAGOAN 37 are easy to apply. The best way to learn just what to do for the eyes is to indulge in a treat ment, say like the remarkably thorough Alimenteau treatment at the Dorothy Gray Salon. The primary purpose of this treatment is to rejuvenate you com pletely and in doing this the eyes naturally come in for a big share of at tention. Sometime soon, I'll tell more about the other features of this treat ment — the stimulating back and neck massage, the exquisite mask which firms the muscles of the neck and throat and really banishes lines and the gray, sallow look. But since eyes are our sub ject, we can only urge you to try out just how much can be done to enhance their glow. The nourishing creams are patted in expertly, the packs arc ap plied and you dose. Little circles of cotton dipped in a stimulating lotion work away at the puffincss and lines underneath. It's all a lot of fun and the effects are stunning. For weeks people keep saying how well you look. Elizabeth Arden has some ingenious gadgets for home care too. Her Puffy- Eye Strap does marvelous things to pouchy spots or to hollows and sunken eyes — whichever you happen to own. Items The yellow finger plague which follows in the wake of cigarettes is conquered at last. Glaso has produced a nicotine re mover that ought to be part of every manicure — at least for the smoking sorority. • • • If you like your cleansers liquid (and more and more people are discovering the joys of liquid cleansers these days), you must try that rich, creamy, pinky cleanser which Margaret Brainard has just added to her products. This lotion cleans wonder fully but very gently and is neither greasy nor drying. In fact it's just about perfect for all normal skins and should certainly be adopted by all sub-debs and debs who need only a fine cleanser without any remedial agents. This is so mild and easily applied that it is the easiest way I know of to remove eye shadow and grime about the eyes. Even if a drop gets into them it won't hurt. Incidentally, Margaret Brain ard herself will be in town shortly to lec ture and demonstrate th uses of her products.

And then there is the exceed ing cosmopolitanism of Stockholm and Copenhagen with their Scandinavian vigor and a gayety that outdoes the Parisian. One ot the most fascinating features ot this cruise is the included trip into Russia, to Leningrad and Moscow. Remember that no returned traveler gets an audience back home these days, spots on steamships and at hotels are because everyone has been everywhere. going-going — going and don't blame us if you end up gnawing your lips and cursing because someone else got there first and you must take the leavings. First, there's the perfect cruise for those who want to do Europe and a lot of it in limited time this summer. No traveler, that is, but he who has been to Russia, and then he can talk all night without a yawn from anyone. Some people like to do certain parts ot Europe in their own way and at their own chosen time with a side leap into the Scandinavian countries when ever they get around to it. For these The Frank Tourist Company is using the North Cape cruises from Europe the Cunarder Lancastria for an All- Europe cruise that covers an amazingly big slice of Europe in just fifty-one days all told. Starting from New York the last of June the ship does an almost complete coverage of the interesting Mediterranean ports. There are gen erous stop-overs at Madeira, Cadiz, niade over here or in Europe. Seville, Gibraltar, Algiers, Naples, Another new thought in the cruise Rome, Monte Carlo and Nice. After business is the idea of special arrange- the southern section the Lancastrui nients for Catholic pilgrimages. Both ambles along happily to Rotterdam and American Express and Thomas Cook up through Kiel Canal to Copenhagen, have opened Catholic departments are ideal. There arc any number of these leaving H a m burg for short cruises of eleven to eighteen days (the eighteen day one includes Russia). The ships are the world-cruiser Resolute, or Hamburg-American'' s yacht-like Oceana; and arrangements may be to Gothenburg and Oslo and up the famous Sogne Fjord, back to Edin burgh, Antwerp, Brussels, with an op tional stop in London and ending in Paris. It sounds like a magnificent trip, all done leisurely and comfortably, and it's a magnificent bargain, giving one the deluxest spots of two of the so- called deluxe cruises the Mediter ranean and North Cape. THE famous Reliance of Hamburg- American is off on her famous Northern Wonderlands cruise the end of June, t(xi. This thirty-six day trip is one of the happiest summer tours ever devised and the ship, as you know, is one of the best-known and most which arrange all the details for trips to famous shrines, to Vatican City, and for audiences with the Pope. And they are already making arrangements for some foresighted people who are plan ning to take in the Eucharistic Con gress in Dublin in 1932. AND now hist! you fishermen! On l June 1 st the T^orth Voyageur sails from Montreal with twenty-six rods aboard. The rods arc bent on salmon fishing in Newfoundland and the whole eighteen -day trip is one of pure delight for the sportsman. The ship touches at Quebec for a day's visit and drops in on all sorts of queer little hamlets along the way -lumber luxurious of cruising steamers. From towns, fur trading posts, Indian camps, New York she heads for Iceland, sail- finally entering the beautiful Bay of ing along its gorgeous scenic coast to Islands in Newfoundland to head for Norway and Sweden. There are placid Corner Brook. From here the party fjords and tumbling waterfalls, tower- leaves by train for the fishing camps. TUE CHICAGOAN 39 The camps are equipped for parties of two, four or six and a cook is pro vided for each four persons. For the very effete there are two good hotels in the vicinity but the true salmon fisher will scorn these. There is a week of fishing in some of the finest salmon waters of the world and then the catch is packed into the refrigerators of the T^ew "Northland, which steams away with both fish and party down the gorgeous Saguenay and back to Montreal. The cost of the cruise includes everything from fishing license and camp arrangements to steamer, and it is justly a favorite among men of salmon ilk. It is han dled by the Clarke Steamship Company of Montreal and you simply must hurry because the number is very defi nitely limited to twenty-six. From Newfoundland to the South Seas is quite a stretch. But right on the heels of the salmon cruise comes the first alluring word of the Malolo's third Pacific cruise scheduled for early fall. If your 1931 plans provide for a truly magnificent trip and if you are fed up on all the usual things you should begin thinking about this one. Hawaii and Australia, Tahiti and Zamboanga, Japan, China — well, dream about it until we get space to tell you more. Or better yet ask the Matson people to tell you more than we will ever know, unless our ticket in the Irish Sweepstakes makes a bloom ing cruiser out of us over night.

One morning, in one of the hotels where the team stayed, Norgren saw one of his charges talking with a geisha girl. He wasn't certain whether his player was arguing with the girl or merely ordering breakfast, so he called him over. "Listen," said Norgren, "do you owe her any money?" "No," replied the Maroon.

For three weeks she had been traveling in Europe . . . Paris, Lucerne, Geneva. She herself had hardly known where she would be next . . . and the folks at home! How were they to know? And, too, how she longed for a word from them. At parting she had told them: "Write care of the American Express, London." Little did she know what that was to mean to her later. She had thought only of London or Paris. She did not know how widespread was the American Express service in Europe. But she soon learned. She asked for her mail in Venice. Her letter was there! . . . It had fol lowed her from London to Paris, from Paris to Geneva, and on to Venice. All along the route this lone woman traveler had been assisted by the American Express organization. At Southampton a solicitous courier in American Express uniform had helped her to her boat train. At London she had arranged for her tour of England. At 11, Rue Scribe, Paris (the Company's office), she had secured her travel accommoda tions for Switzerland and Italy. On entering Italy an American Express interpreter had helped her with the troublesome details of the customs. But it ivas this letter in Venice that brought home to her the completeness of American Express service. Naturally, it was an American Ex press man who at the conclusion of her European travels, saw her safely on her steamer bound for home. Her trip had been "thrilling," but it was made so by the experienced help of the travel men in the Ameri can Express offices wherever she went. She had made sure that she would be entitled to this helpfulness before she left home, by changing her travel money into the convenient American Express Travelers Cheques.

The "Differentest" Isles in the Seven Seas VX7HEN you discover the Bermuda Islands this summer, you will find them unlike any other land you have ever seen. Oddly, they are cooler in summer than northern cities on the mainland. Here is a June-to-September average of 77°. The absence of automobiling, street cars, factories, and billboards, is a pleasing revelation, and there is a delightful freedom from hurry, noise, and turmoil. No better place for rest and recuperation can be imagined. Picture a group of cedar-covered islands in a multi-colored sea islands dotted with gleaming cottages, and beribboned with white coral roads. The roads and paths, especial ly at this season, are veritable bowers of flowers, and there are brilliant sub-tropical gardens everywhere. The splendid hotels and boarding places are all on or near the water and provide the best of outdoor sports and agreeable social life. Bermudian hotel dance orchestras are unexcelled. Whether for rest or recrea tion, enjoy your vacation or longer outing in Bermuda. You need no passport.
