II* CHICAGO AN June, 1932 Price 35 Cents THIS GENTLEMAN KNOWS WHAT'S WHAT! When it comes to What the Well Dressed Golfer Will Wear, the gentleman portrayed is decidedly in the know. His shirt is of oxford because oxford is a cool, comfortable shirt fabric. He wears a sleeve less sweater because sleeveless sweaters are riding high this year. His tie is of wool because American sportsmen are going for this English tie idea in a big way. He favors slacks because they're well in the lead in the Trousers -for -golf- wear Sweepstakes. He wears the new Slack Socks because they're exactly the right socks to wear with Slacks. And he got the whole outfit at Spalding's, because he's meticulous about the style and fit of his clothes, and he's too intelligent to pay high prices for anything these days. o 1932. a. g a. « bros.

"Why trifle with Borneo or Zanzibar? Why, in deed— when this cruise lands you in Canada? And— well — we can't mention it, but what have Americans made Canada noted for? And sights! Why, my dears, the Fiji Islands can't hold a candle to the ones you'll see on this trip. Has Togoland a Mackinac Island, a Detroit, a Buffalo or a Niagara Falls? Timbuktu may have its night life — but so has Niagara. What's the wheezing of jazz bands to the thunder of falling water dramatized by thousands of giant colored lights? It's like comparing near beer to real beer! We ask you — is that a comparison? Talk about luxury and comfort! These D & C Boats take the prize. Floating hotels — that's what they are. And the meals aboard these palatial liners are as popular as Johnny Walker, and, as in a case of Johnny, there's a reason! They're GOOD! What's more, there are bridge tournaments, deck sports, afternoon teas and dancing, not to mention the genial social hostess who acquaints you with your fellow passengers. Pleasure supreme! Are you sick and tired of worrying? Then, this is the trip for you, for there's nothing to worry about— no extra tickets to buy, no baggage to check, no meals to order, no rooms to select. The price of your ticket takes care of everything. If we weren't addressing Chicagoans, we'd say this trip was as easy as rolling off a log. By the way, are you interested in a bona fide bargain? We thought so! You wouldn't be true Chicagoans if you weren't. It sounds a bit ex pensive, doesn't it, but happily it's only the sound that's expensive. There — the cat's out of the bag — the whole grand trip, from start to finish, is yours for $77.75. A master bargain, eh what? Blame The Chicagoan for that! And take our word for this, when it comes to making merry on this trip, the "Merry Widow" will have noth ing on us. Okay, Chicagoan Pals, we'll be seein' you on Monday, August 1 !

UPTON BEAUTY SALON Telephone Delaware 2979 540 N. MICHIGAN AVENUE A WELL, groomed, smartly frocked group of strollers, the sort usually seen on a sunny afternoon on Michigan Avenue, were hobnobbing in front of an impressive building. I wandered in with them and was amazed at the dignified splendor of the modern architecture of Diana Court. The contemporary background, bold and imposing, was delicately enhanced by a land scaped display of flowering blooms. The bubbling Diana Fountain by Milles, was gleam ing with jewels of water. Smartly gowned mannequins were moving about in orderly manner displaying fashionable everythings from Shops in the Court. Together it formed a kaleidoscopic picture. I had inadvertently, but fortunately, joined a convention party sponsored by the build ing's occupants. I sat down at a smartly set table to watch the passing show, and ordered tea. The Vassar House Restaurant, with its plan to assist scholarship students, has its delightfully decorated headquarters here. Deliciously prepared food served in this rarefied atmosphere tastes doubly good. After refreshing myself I browsed through the Shops — amazing things — too hard to resist — why not do my shopping here? Grace Tancill of St. Louis has her Chicago salon here and copies of models displayed can be made to order and are always in styles that are practical for years. I selected a honey beige jersey dress, sleeveless, but with a built-out shoulder effect. It had a smart little coat to match. At the Flo Shoppe a beige hat seemed to wink at me. It was made of a loose mesh fabric and was the perfect topper for my new suit. Kdith Weiner sold me a box of just-a-shade-darker, sheer mesh hose. Here, too. was dainty handmade French underthings made by Yolande. I must tell Marguerite to shop here for her lingerie trousseau. At Arnold's was a summery purse made of natural wooden beads. It promised to look new forever and would do nicely for any warm weather ensemble. A beauty salon. Upton's — and at last I had found the cool, well-appointed shop in which I could comfortably linger to have my hair waved. For the very first time I didn't resent the thought that a permanent wave was not permament — and made an appointment for me very next day. A i i: Where could one find more interesting shops? Out came the list that was going to make our summer habitat a cheering winter memory. I practice the oriental theory of banishing home decorative treasures for several months every year. It's so refreshing to replace the somber brocade draperies, the ponderous studies in oils, even the heavy majolica what-nots, with crisp, dotted Swiss curtains, fine line etchings, and water colors — and white glass bowls. I met a Miss Nelson, a charming person and an interior decorating consultant. To gether we chose the lighter touches for the warm months to come. At the American Indian Shop we selected a Navajo rug for John's room — then to the Kenwood Mills for feather-weight homespun blankets for cool country nights. An exhi bition of etchings and water colors at the Increase Robinson Galleries made us linger — but not nearly as long as I wanted to. While there we heard the warm mellow music of fine pianos, wafting in from the Bissell-Weisert Salon next door. Miss Nelson had to return to her Studio just as I spied a broadtail capelet in Baron, the Furrier's, window. Its above-the-waistline length would make it an ideal wrap for summer formal wear. I must stop in tomorrow and try it on. In another mezzanine shop window was a name I had often heard, Theresa May Miller.

I stopped fn and chatted with her and it wasn't many minutes before we were in the midst of a discussion on lines and necklines. She sug gested grand things to do to my last season's carry-overs. I must bring those dresses in to Miss Miller and undoubtedly save myself several pretty pennies. I briskly dashed to the second floor to see what surprises it had to offer, and, I found an old friend, Mr. DuCine. He has been the furrier at Mandel's for years and has just opened his own atelier. We talked of furs and friends and it was ever so nice. He told me of Ernest Newman, a neighbor couturier, who is best known to his exclusive clientele. Mr. Newman boasts a reputa tion for individualized designing at prices that I, an inveterate shopper, will cheerfully pay. Alicia Marshall, — another shop, — showing models of hand-knitted suits and knitted wear garments that lend themselves beautifully to long serviceable lives. They can be remodeled by re- knitting. A three piece ensemble for sport wear would be just the right thing for Marguerite. I must tell her how smart and practical they are. It has been a glorious afternoon. This unex pected shopping tour was a genuine pleasure. So much more to see and do — but I'm coming in to- to complete our summer needs. I'll stop at Upton's Beauty Salon and try to arrange to ndre cut my hair when i come in for my appointment. It's getting late — a dash to Kenwood Mills for some samples of homespun men's sport fabrics — a box of dainty tidbits from Socatch to put our fireside banker in a fitting mood (I want him to go to Ermate to be photographed) , and I'm on way.

Mr. J. R. Lowell did a nifty bit of barding about perfect June days — Kenwood Mills, on the other hand, is more interested in making the nights so comfortable that even the un- poetic will appreciate the days. Thus inspired — the result is the new Kenwood Summer Blanket. A thin wool blanket, soft to the touch, that will keep you warm on chilly nights. It's an in novation in bed covering — keeps the cool out on cool nights and the hot out on hot ones. Don't confuse the Summer Blanket with the real Kenwood. Kenwood is a robust, woolly, deep-napped blanket for cold nights — the Summer Blanket is a light, soft, flannel-like conceit made just for summer. Both are perfect for what they're perfect for. When you see the Kenwood Summer Blankets in your favorite store — lovely, soft pastel shades of Green, Orchid, Rose, Gold, Blue and Tan — you will rec ognize them as the loveliest bits of colorful bed covering ever and you'll be proud as well as pleased after you have bought them.

Once upon a time we would have leapt to compliance. That was when the infamies constituted the established factor of the Chicago pattern and the glories throve mainly in reams of hopefully distributed but largely unprinted publicity. Now that the situation has been reversed, it seems to us pointless and a little unbecoming to scream our satisfaction with a manifestly satisfactory condition. Accordingly, we have not adorned the pages of this issue with heroic photographs of skyscrapers and por- traits of their overlords. Neither have we mapped the boulevard system, nor collected endless columns of statis' tics revealing the number of railroads converging in our backyard, the gross tonnage of beef, pork and mutton slaughtered daily and annually within the corporate lim- its and the relative lack of big league crime, humidity and infectious disease. This brash display of metropolitan mag' nificence and virtue we have left to the unblushing atten' tion of the daily press and the nightly radio, for neither of which the delegate guest is likely to have enough spare time to incur propagandosis (buyer rebellion) . Yet we have not shirked our obligation. We appre ciate the distinction conferred upon Chicago by the con vening parties. We realize fully that convention visitors can do much for Chicago, while here and subsequently. But we realize, too, that Chicago can do much for the visiting conventioneers, while here at any rate, perhaps subsequently if we do the present job well. We believe that if we give them peace and comfort, needed relaxa tion from their strenuous labors of the day and required courage for the morrow, it is just possible that they "will give us a good president. That, say we, is an objective of sorts! TMPELLED by this shining motive, we commissioned Mr. Milton S. Mayer to delve into the yesterdays and determine of precisely what stuff the political conven tioneer is made. Mr. Mayer's mildly unconventional but fastidiously accurate report of his findings, entitled The Political Sideshow, is published on four suitably counter- pointed pages immediately hereinafter. We believe that no delegate will find these pages, rich as they are in behavioristic inspiration and vindication, dull. Further, on the basis of Mr. Mayer's report and on the reasonably tenable theory that mankind is not trans formed quadrennially, we have joined with Colonel Ira L. Reeves, distinguished chieftain of The Crusaders, in making available to convention visitors a map and statis tics of genuine value on a hot June day. Still further, we have obtained from Mr. John Drury, author of Chicago In Seven Days and pilot extraordinary to guest notability, an article freighted with pungent precedent for the visitor whose interest in the city is not bounded by the mental horizon of the picture postcard people. ; I AHESE documents, flanked by our customary listings A of current entertainment and dependable caravan saries, constitute our contribution to the welfare and hap piness of the delegates and their retinues. It is quite likely that we shall be censured by the stalwarts referred to in our opening sentence for departing from the orthodox poli cies of municipal puffery, but we shall strive to bear up. We anticipate no protest from the guests whose stay in our midst we have sought to make pleasant. It is our experience that visitors to Chicago conform pretty con sistently to a standard of wants, ambitions and expecta tions which it ill becomes a gracious host to deny them. These wants, ambitions and expectations are not with out exception those which an impeccable Association of Commerce elects to profess in official capacity to believe they are, however prompt the individual member to heed. Until quite recently, the visitor to Chicago wanted to see Al Capone in the flesh, if not in action. A major ambi tion was to witness a gang execution, and the sound of machine gun fire was confidently expected. Mr. Drury's On Seeing Chicago attests the universality of these inter ests. We've never been able to perceive a substantial pur pose to be served in denying that they exist. /"'•HICAGO is, and we suspect always will be, Chicago. ^* On account of various phenomena in its development, swift growth, central location, fantastic local history of incredible variety, it enjoys a distinct identity among the cities of the nation. It is not a miniature New York, nor an overgrown Des Moines. It is not regarded about the globe as Spotless Town nor as Robbers Roost. It has never responded to the pulmotor of propaganda nor ex pired before a blast of bloody headlines. We don't believe that anything this or other media might do in the present connection will materially influ ence the actions or reactions of the visiting delegates. Each will drive or be driven through the loop and along the lakefront. Each will visit the World Fair grounds and formulate his own impressions, conclusions and de scriptive phrases for the folks back home. Each will enjoy his stay or not, praise the city or pity it, but leave, inevitably, with a profound and abiding impression of having been a very definite somewhere. 1T7HAT goes on at the Stadium will have little or no bearing upon the impression of Chicago that a dele gate takes home with him. There will be other conven tions, other candidates, other platforms and issues. There will never be another Chicago, nor will Chicago ever be other than it is — a big, loud, unrestrained city slashing its way onward, up or down as the course may lie, to an unguessed but tremendously interesting destiny. That is the thing that Chicago is. No personality has ever risen to dominate it and no champion has ever added to its roughshod magnificence. No delegate who stays out the tenure of his leave will depart believing that one ever shall. Speed the day when Chicagoans shall see as clearly. nd T3 r^ eu d ON > c* «/N V ¦^ T <u u co 13 4-> O 00 •l-H c3 o eu *& a > O T3 on u C3 * d CU O ,J3 -CJ CU J^ t-t d 4-1 00 s o • 1— < 4-> ? eu d >% SB J3 T3 £ O 0) rd 00 -a d d o CU d CO £ CU CO 4) 5 00 T3 d rd CO d CO eu , 3 > T^j +-> cd £ CU eu rJ3 d £ +-> O si o eg o eu a p* CO d 4-> Oh n3 o <4-l CU o u eu o CO CO > ,-d O r— « £ PQ CU T3 d CU O c3 rd bJD s +-> ed CO CU eu (3 •p-i rd 4-> d U -d £ CU 4-> •*H o d 00 rX4 4-1 CO S u <A *d u T3 d • >-< rd CU eu esi x CU C5 • S •F-i GO u «3 d ,-Q d > S •r-4 <-« H a H £ _fl 4-» _ CO eu H d eu 4-> Cfl ^ CU *d ^d o ¦M o «4H >\ o r— 4 4-1 eu CO 93 a o t-i CU •c o •1-4 d cr eu 4_> s * < CU s o pd 18 The Chicagoan The Political Sideshow To Battle with Ballot and Bottle By Milton S. Mayer THERE are 700 — count 'em— 700 speak easies within half a mile of the Chicago Stadium. But most of the 4,600 dele gates and alternates to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions have quar ters in the skyscraper hotels of the downtown district, two miles away from the battle ground. Out of harm's way? Not quite. There are another 3,000 speakeasies in and around the Loop. And there's a speakeasy for every weary, wayworn wanderer along the connecting thoroughfares. What of it? It would not be cricket to contend that because there are thirty thou sand speakeasies in Chicago the politicians have chosen Sodom itself for their quadrennial sideshow. Chicago is not a wicked city. Chi cago is a lovely city. People are wicked; poli ticians are wicked, yes. But not cities. Not Chicago. Chicago is hospitable. Surely, the customs that the Old South, and the Old North, too, enshrined in the name of hospi tality cannot have become so vicious, so de graded that we can today call them wicked. I am afraid, and so is the Prohibition En forcement Bureau, that there is a tendency in the mine run of humans to drink as well as eat. This tendency is especially emphatic among politicians, -who, belonging to a busi ness in which the principal function is talking, are prone to a parched condition of the throat ¦ — a condition, oddly enough, that water, lem onade, and soft cider will not relieve. This problem is especially acute at national conventions. The month is June. It is the mating season. Most animals get along with their mating very nicely with no other incen tive than a wholesome instinct or two and, as in the case of the eel or the English bulldog, a sense of humor. But when the mating sea son comes to the politicians, as it does every four years, there seems to be a total inability to get down to business without a great deal of drinking. It is in part due to this drinking that political conventions are always the occasions not only for riot and revel within the hall and among the delegates in the hotel rooms but also for a general abandonment of common decency among the inhabitants of the cities in which the conventions are being held. Not that the townspeople stage a Roman holi day. Not at all. It is simply a matter of being infected with the spirit of festival and futility that pervades political conventions. People who don't customarily drink are found in saloons; male school teachers of sixty sum mers take to the taxi dance halls; ladies with families go out in rowboats alone; book-keep ers -who have wives and children walk up and down the streets looking for trouble — and find ing it. People who have hitherto been re spectable go to musical revues. Expensive au tomobiles are bought, and people who have enough clothes and jewels purchase more clothes and jewels. There is a scandalous num ber of Sunday School picnics, bridge parties, and dollar steamboat excursions to nearby cities. All because the conventions are in town. It is an American phenomenon, but it is not an unhealthy one. To a people such as ours, who are notable for their lack of light- heartedness and their inability to make merry, the coming of a political convention is a bless ing. It provides an opportunity for the poli ticians to cut up and a provocation for the common people to pile in and share the good, clean fun. When it is all over, very little harm has been done, the next President of the United States has been put on the spot, and the people who don't customarily drink, the male school teachers, the ladies with families, and the book-keepers with wives and children are able to return to the grindstone with an inner glow off of which no headache can knock the bloom. The high old time for which the gathering of the clans stands today had its beginning in the shindy that nominated Lincoln in 1860. The national political con vention, instituted in 1824 by Thurlow Weed as an up-to-date device for robbing the people and making them like it, had a bad name from the outset. But until the Lincoln con vention in Chicago, the steals and trades had always been negotiated under the cover of the patrician decorum that in another day had been the hallmark of the respectable profes sion of politics. The first Republican convention, held in Philadelphia in 1856, attracted so little notice that the hall accommodating 2,000 persons was not filled. As in the early Democratic con- "face tag, mr. terwilliger!" ventions, a certain amount of restraint was shown by the delegates. But early in April of 1860 Chicago realized that all pretense of parlor behavior would be abandoned in the struggle for the spoils of a war not yet fought. The Wigwam was built — the first building constructed for a national convention. It ac commodated between ten and twelve thousand persons, and never during the convention was there a square foot of unoccupied space. The first indication that the affair was go ing to play hob with the simple life of the city was given by the Street Railway Company, which announced, on May 12, that "as better meeting the demands of the convention week, late street cars will be run over all lines. The usual hour for the 'last car' is 11 P. M., but on and after Monday evening, throughout the week, cars will be run at 11 Yl and 12 P. M." The city began whooping it up officially on Saturday night, May 12, with the dedication of the barn-like Wigwam. Despite an admis sion charge of twenty-five cents the whole city turned out for the event. Wrote the editor of the Journal the following day: "The stage, galleries, and the body of the house were completely packed with the thou sands who had come up to this preliminary meeting of the campaign, to dedicate a new rallying place during the coming and long wished for contest between Freedom and Slavery." By Monday, the 14th, Chicago's forty-two hotels were "crowded with politicians, lobby men and delegates caucusing, comparing notes and arranging preliminaries." The city's pri vate homes were thrown open to the visitors, and, according to the enthusiastic newspapers (the only contemporary sources of informa tion), Chicago's 109,000 citizens were hosts to between 75,000 and 125,000 visitors dur ing the convention. After the hotel rooms had been crowded to the gills, billiard tables, din ing tables, and the long bars of the saloons were pressed into service. Hotel keepers had their hands full persuading convivial delegates and visitors to quit playing billiards before dawn so that the tables could be utilized by sleepy guests. One reporter made the rounds early in the morning during the convention and found 130 persons in one hotel glad to sleep on the billiard tables. The unprece dented crowd had attracted a host of pick pockets, purse-snatchers, "shoulder-hitters," and house-breakers to the city. Countless complaints were recorded by the newspapers, but the situation was well out of hand. It is doubtless whether even the 1928 satur nalias at Kansas City and Houston did away with as much wet goods as the Republican jamboree of 1860. The opening of the conven tion was deafened by "the incessant drunken babble in bar-rooms and street corners of the small blowers and strikers." But while the vulgar titillated their political passions with whiskey, the notables beguiled the intermis sions with champagne furnished, to a large June, 1932 19 extent, by the friends of William H. Seward, Weed's candidate and the pre-convention favorite. The local papers carried several items like these each day: "Tuesday a very pleasant excursion party, drawn mainly from the Massachusetts dele gation, passed several hours in the spacious parlors and verandahs of the Hyde Park House, extracting divers corks, and made the city in good style about 6 o'clock." "Last night the Ohio delegation was wel comed with a banquet in the Tremont House dining room. Hon. Joshua R. Giddings spoke. After Mr. Giddings had concluded, sentiments and speeches, mixed with the continual pop ping of champagne corks, followed in rapid succession." The gang of Seward "roughs" whom Weed brought with him to line up the timid gave the convention the low tone that prevails in modern political barbe cues. "The New Yorkers here," wrote one correspondent, "are of a class unknown to the Western Republican politicians. They can drink more whiskey, swear as loud and long, sing as bad songs, and 'get up and howl' as ferociously as any crowd of Democrats you ever heard. They are opposed, as they say, to being 'too damned virtuous.' . . . At night most of them who are not engaged in caucus ing are doing what ill-tutored youths call 'raising hell generally.' Wherever you find them, the New York politicians, of whatever party, are a peculiar party." The night of May 17, the night of the deal that resulted in Lincoln's nomination, was the wildest night Chicago had ever known. That afternoon Seward's nomination had been a certainty. A motion was on the floor to pro ceed with the balloting, when the secretary announced that there would be a delay of a few minutes before the tallies arrived. At this point "a Voice," unidentified here and for ever, was heard above the frenzy of the con vention to move that "this convention adjourn until ten o'clock tomorrow morning." Early in the evening, while Horace Greeley was wiring his New York Tribune that he was afraid Seward would be nominated, the Lincoln men were already within reach of vic tory. All night the lights burned in the Briggs House as delegation after delegation switched from Seward to Lincoln. All night the cham pagne flowed in the Seward headquarters at the Richmond House, and the Seward bands serenaded the city. The saloons were running at white heat. The pandemonium that seized the hall and the city following Lincoln's nomination the next day was, as the newspapers all conceded " IVAN, DO YOU BELIEVE IN A HEREAFTER? TAKE EITHER SIDE OF THE ARGUMENT" in their exhaustive descriptions of it, beyond description. Four women fainted in the Wig wam while the balloting was in progress. One man had a fit and had to be removed from the hall by a window. Michael Buckley, a citizen, got drunk and attempted to cross the bridge over Ogden Canal. "He had enough sense," the Press and Tribune reported lacon ically, "not to try to cross the bridge alone. He asked John Colman to help him across, but Colman, who was also drunk, refused. So Buckley attempted to cross alone and fell into the canal and was drowned." Everyone celebrated. The circus, the play houses and the saloons were jammed. There were rallies and mass-meetings at every down town corner. There were torch-light parades and bonfires. There were fist-fights, razor duels, and bottle assaults. A new era had begun. The future of the wool-pulling, booZ' ing, yelping political convention was assured. The deals and steals of the Democratic convention of 1864 were re counted more precisely by the Republican newspapers. This was Chicago's second na tional convention. The city was generally hostile to the enemies of Lincoln and the clamorers for "dishonorable peace" who nom inated Gen. McClellan on the first ballot. The papers reported the affair with a sharp tongue. Three days before the convention opened, "one ardent and enthusiastic McClel lan man solemnly averred that August Bel mont would be here on Saturday with five thousand New York club-men, expenses paid, whiskey included. . . . Towards night, as the whiskey went down the prospects of Little Mac went up, and at the hour of 9 o'clock it became actually dangerous for a sober man to doubt on the subject of McClellan's suc cess as regards either the nomination or the election." The following day the Tribune remarked that "it is a truth that would be readily ad mitted, if our readers could visit the saloons of our city, that the people who have come here are an eminently thirsty people. The drinking places are crowded. The price of drinks at fashionable resorts has 'riz.' Mint juleps and sherry cobblers sell for a quarter. It costs a five dollar Treasury note just now to do the agreeable to one's friends. This making Presidents is an expensive business, but there are men in Chicago just now who 'don't care a d — n for expenses.' " " 'Little Mac' is run by the 'bloated aristo crats' of the Democratic party," the Tribune explained as the convention gathered. "He is the candidate of the money brokers of Wall Street and the great railroad corporations of New York and New England. . . . The Demo cratic party is controlled by Austrian Jew bankers, like August Belmont, and codfish aris tocrats and railway kings like Dean Rich mond." Sen. William A. Richardson of Illinois, "the old war-horse of the Democratic party," spoke thus at a mass-meeting in Bryan Hall: "Lincoln has disobeyed and broken every constitutional obligation and every law in the land except the one allowing him to draw $25,000 salary. The Almighty, from earliest times, has punished nations for great crimes. He has punished us more than Egypt, or France or Rome. He has sent us Abraham Lincoln." The Tribune received this blast by announc- 20 The Chicagoan ing, in its news columns, that "drunk or sober, the old demagogue knew that he uttered a palpable falsehood." The day after the convention the state of the politicians was described thus: ". . . The streets were early filled with un shaven and unshorn delegates, some anxiously inquiring the way to a neighborhood grocery or saloon, which to accommodate strangers keep open all night. . . . Some were stretched full length on the green sward of the public square, the sun shining full and bright in coun tenances illumined by the whisky potations they were vainly endeavoring to sleep off. . . . A delegate from Timbuctoo 'was resting his head in the gutter, near the corner of Lake and Clark streets. . . . The delegation from Hard Scrabble were returning from a gilded palace of vice, where they had spent the night in dissipation and debauchery. ... It was a picture for a painter." The love-feast that nom inated U. S. Grant in 1868 was the most con genial political convention Chicago has ever had. There ¦was nothing to do but celebrate, but there was plenty of that. Amusements scheduled for the event included Philip Phil lips, the Sweet Singer of Israel, in a Concert at the First Methodist Church; an Unequalled Cast in the 146th Representation of the Most Popular Drama of the Age — "Ticket-of -Leave Man"; Mr. F. S. Chanfrau in "Our American Cousin at Home," also Imitations of Edwin Forrest, the Elder Booth, Charles Kean, Barney Williams, 8=? Etc.; The Four Most Brilliant Ethiopian Comedians Ever Associated To gether under One Management; the Un equalled and Gigantic Duprez & Benedict Min strels; the Strawberry and Floral Festival Each Evening at Crosby's Music Hall; the Grand Excursion Leaving Every Hour for a Two Hours' Ride on the Lake and a Chance to View the Great City of the Northwest; and the Trotting Races Daily at Dexter Park. The Soldiers and Sailors Convention was also being held in the city, and the boys in "WE'VE GOT A COW, TOO, I THINK" blue helped -whoop it up for Grant. From the official record of the proceedings of the Soldiers and Sailors: "After the reading of the third resolution, General Barnum of New York proposed three groans for Andrew Johnson [at the time President of the United States], and the dele gates responded loud and deep." The condition of Western Civilization was indicated in the following item, printed in the Chicago papers of May 21, the day Grant was nominated: "A sanitary survey of the Third Ward by Dr. J. M. Woodworth was submitted to the Board of Health yesterday afternoon at the regular meeting. The following is the sum mary: Families, 2,384; males, 8,590; females, 8,030; total population, 16,620; white, 15,- 741; colored, 829. Of these, 8,931 are Amer icans, 3,575 Germans, 2,628 Irish, and 601 English; 1,640 are laborers; 1,127 mechanics; 327 seamstresses; 4 editors; 209 saloon keep ers; 112 prostitutes; and 100 peddlers. There are 1,905 dwellings; 232 stores; 146 saloons; 27 brothels; 605 stalls, and 10 churches. Of the 2,513 buildings, 928 are lighted by gas, 1,717 are supplied with lake water, and 1,542 of them have sewer connections." The nomination of Gen. Grant, following two days of extensive celebrating, was de scribed the following morning in the Tribune thus: "The announcement by the chair that Gen eral Grant had received the total vote of the convention was received with the wildest ap plause. A curtain was withdrawn at the back of the stage, displaying a magnificent painting of the White House with the Goddess of Lib erty beckoning General Grant toward it. Words cannot describe the enthusiasm which this produced. The convention arose, dele gates swung their arms and shouted, while the gallery fluttered with handkerchiefs. Doves, colored red, white and blue, were launched from the gallery, a glee club came forth and sang a song composed especially for the occa sion, while the Great Western Light Guard band played several patriotic airs, to the intense delight of all in the convention." The most vicious war of words in American political history was fought in Chicago in June of 1880. Twelve years earlier the Republicans had come to Chicago to praise Grant. This time they came to bury him. The 1880 affair was, until the Slow Death of McAdoo in Madison Square Garden in 1924, the Sullivan- Kilrain fight, or the Mourning Becomes Electra, of political con ventions. It lasted a week and got ghastlier and ghastlier each day. It started out with a debonair swagger and ended in bleary, bloody- eyed hate: "Not having to walk, or ride long distances jammed in street cars, the delegates will attend the sessions cool, calm, and fresh, instead of jaded, fatigued, and disgusted, and thus will be ready to enter upon their duties in a phil osophic and statesmanlike manner," the Trib une of June 1 blithely predicted. ". . . In the East the temperature ranges between 90° and 105°. Here it is delightfully cool. ... In a hot place like New York or Cincinnati, there might be an explosion; in any event there would be great acerbity, bitterness, and pro fanity. The gentle rains have not only wet down the city, but the Convention. . . . The factions are polite to each other, and they urge the claims of their favorites with courtesy and with patriotic as well as political amenity." But by June 6, the fifth day of the siege, the pitch had changed considerably: "The Convention was damp and limp, and dull and listless. It came into the hall out of a driz zling rain, and found it quite impossible to shut out the misty, foggy atmosphere which crept in after the mass of people, clinging to their garments and rendering them sticky and disagreeable." And on the morning of June 8, the day on which the deadlock broke after 35 ballots and Gen. Garfield was nominated, "the delegates look weary and worn. . . . They are hollow-eyed, dark-browed, and sallow skinned; they look shrunken and shivery, as June, 1932 21 "WE SHOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE A PORTION OF GOOD 2.75 PER CENT BEER" if affected with the ague. Some of them wear overcoats to keep out the chilly air, and these drop into their seats with a yawn of disgust." What had happened to the flower of Amer ican manhood between June 1 and June 8, 1880? They had been the embattled pawns in a struggle to the death between two equally savage, equally lustful hosts, the Grant gang and the Blaine gang. Once the balloting be gan, the hall became a madhouse, and re mained so until the end. On June 5 the Grant mob roared for thirty minutes; the Blaine mob roared for thirty-five: "The howling, yelling mob gave way to passion and frenzy. . . . They howled and stamped. They broke off the backs of seats and pounded the floor with them. They took off their boots and pounded the seats with the heels. They flourished their canes and threw their hats in the air. They screamed and shrieked." This fireworks, repeated daily, took most of the starch out of the dele gates. What was left was sacrificed to the demands of the between-sessions operations: "The comment when it became known that the august assembly was not to reconvene until seven o'clock in the evening was usually, 'Now, won't they have a good time buying up the delegates.' The impression was very general among the cynical throng that to be a delegate between 4 P. M. and 7 P. M. yes terday was worth a little fortune, at least, to the lucky man." This from the Tribune, June 7, after the eighteenth ballot had been cast. The city was in utter turmoil. Between Barnum's circus, which was in Chicago dur ing the convention, and the convention it self, the brokers' offices in the Rookery Build ing were empty every afternoon, the Tribune reported. Exposition Hall seated 12,000. Not at any session were there fewer than 5,000 people standing outside in the street. Alternates sold their tickets for from $40 to $50, while guest tickets went at $10 to $15 apiece as fast as they turned up in the lobby of the Palmer House. The bar-rooms did a seething business, and the cordon of saloons which had been built around the hall for the event were crammed to the turrets. But life, at home and abroad, went on, inexorable : May 29 — "Forty known criminals, most of them pickpockets, have been arrested and lodged in the police stations of the city." June 2 — "Augusta Otte commenced an ac tion against Otto Warneke claiming $5,000 for alleged breach of promise of marriage. She charges that on the 15th of June, 1879, he promised to marry her, and she had waited for him ever since, but in vain. Rashly relying on this promise, also, she allowed him to antic ipate certain marital rights, and the result is she has borne him a child, which he refuses to accept or support." June 2 — "(Special Correspondence) — New York, May 29 — As a summer resort New York is not a success. The city has been like an oven this week. Beginning at 80° on Sunday, the Mercury has jumped into the 90's, and today our sweltering citizens are fearful lest it should register 100 in the shade." June 3 — "The Health-Officer's report for the month shows that 1,188 nuisances were abated and 19,935 pounds of meat con demned." June 5 — "Terence Begley, while slightly un der the influence of liquor, at 8:45 last eve ning while attempting to board a Halsted Street car while in motion near 12th Street, stumbled and fell. He recovered himself and boarded the car. After thinking over the mat ter as he rode along, he left the car and, drawing his revolver, fired one shot at Frank Hoehandle, the driver. The bullet grazed his arm and passed through the car, narrowly missing the passengers." On Monday, June 1, the day before the Republican convention of 1880 opened, the papers reported that "Fred Grant repaired to the rooms of Senator Bruce of Mississippi at the Palmer House yesterday afternoon. He knew that the Senator was opposed to General Grant, but Fred went in and talked to him and drank his whiskey. Finding that talking was of no benefit upon Senator Bruce, Fred said, 'I will go to the Georgia delegation and work them for my father, who must and will be nominated on the first ballot.' " On the same day, at 10 A. M., the firm of Pomeroy 6? Co. auctioned 200,000 Imported Key West and Domestic Cigars. An hour later the firm of Henry B. Hatch auctioned 30,000 Cigars, "All Favorite Brands, and Will Be Sold Peremptorily for Cash." These ancient memen toes form the basis of a tradition that hell and corks pop at Chicago conventions. There have been bigger conventions here since — the "free silver" rodeo of 1896, the Taft steam- rolling of 1912, the Harding steal of 1920. Bigger conventions, but not better. In an era when so many beautiful things are pass ing, though, it warms the cockles to see one institution — the national political convention — surviving with most of its pristine glory, if not all. Times are tight, so they say, this June, and the conventions, like everyone else, have to water their wine and mix sawdust with their bran bread. But the ingredients for an old- fashioned field day are not materially affected. Liquor is cheaper than it has been since before the war, and there is more of it. The re duced railroads have lured thousands with their reduced fares. Each convention is not spending $10,000,000, and each convention is not worth $1,000,000 to the city, for things are different from four years ago. But half of each of those figures is no exaggeration. Chicago is, actually, bankrupt. It can't pay its bills, and it has no more credit. In an other six months, it may be, like so many bankrupt corporations, extinct — an empty spot on the map, a great big vacant lot, a cemetery full of thirty-story tombstones. But it is hav ing just one more bender, just one more wild party, just one more political convention, be fore it joins Tyre, Carthage, and Pompeii. And it's worth it. You can't go wrong on a national convention. It's a treat as is a treat. And the swell thing about it is that each succeeding convention, like the late Louis' of France, is funnier than the last. 22 The Chicagoan • • • • • • • • • m •••• • The .m9 Crusaders'1 * OFFICIAL RELIEF MAP The 3,575 hospitable founts within arm's reach of Convention visitors are flung, wine glass fashion, from limpid La\e Michigan at the top of the page West along Madison and tributary thoroughfares to and about a tech nically distended Stadium where a man can raise a thirst and unquestionably will.

On Seeing Chicago A Note on Places and Things of Evident Interest to the Notability By John Drury WE had no sooner arrived at the dingy little Pekin Inn police station — Brig. Gen. Edward L. Spears, of the Brit ish army (now member of Parliament); his brother-in-law, John Borden, of Chicago; and myself — than the young, red-faced Irish squad leader said "Hurry up, gentlemen! We've got a call. It's a murder. Jump right into the back seat of the car." It was ten o'clock at night, in the heart of the great south side blackbelt. The general had his Dunhill pipe and stick along and wore a -wrinkled trench coat. In an instant we were speeding south in State street. Our siren shrieked, the gong clanged and a powerful spotlight played back and forth ahead of us like a pendulum over the street ahead. Gen. Spears and Mr. Borden, who not a half hour before had been chatting in the dig nified red plush silence of the exclusive Chi cago Club, were huddled in the back seat. Four husky detectives sat in front of them. Here they were, these celebrities, taking part in the red melodrama of Chicago's turbulent streets. Here might be something as exciting to Mr. Borden as plowing through the ice fields of the Arctic circle, or as thrilling to Gen. Spears as a battle front in Flanders. Amazement was in their eyes. The car lurched from side to side. We were doing seventy. Street lights shot past us, surface cars stopped ab ruptly, automobiles pulled to one side like frightened chickens and Negroes came run ning out of stores and pool-rooms. They stared at us as though our car were some kind of sinister yellow demon, flying through the streets. The blackbelt was electrified by the weird shrieking of our siren in the March night. Gen. Spears began to relax a little. Turn ing to Mr. Borden, he shouted above the din and roar, "By Jove! Ripping, isn't it? Quite a thrill, indeed!" Mr. Borden smiled and nodded his head. "I say, what about this murder?" the gen eral shouted into my ear. "No details yet, General," I yelled back. Suddenly we swung around a corner. A shadowy sidestreet lay ahead. Our spotlight immediately picked out a crowd of people and a cluster of shining automobiles in the middle of the street. With our siren still at full blast, our ap proach was like the coming of an emperor's carriage. Everybody turned around, jumped aside. As we ground to a stop, Gen. Spears and Mr. Borden, tense with inner excitement, saw the four detectives reach under their coats and pull out blue-steel revolvers. The detec tives were about to leap out of the car when a uniformed policeman appeared from some where and shouted to our squad leader: "False alarm, Jack! Nigger beating up his wife. She ain't even hurt. We're taking the old man to the station. Everything O. K." NOTE: Mr. Drury, author of Chicago in Seven Days, Dining in Chicago and kindred works, is guide by common consent to dis tinguished guests whose interest in the Town is deeper than casual and whose company he elects to share. He has been kind enough to release these leaves from his notebook for the perusal and profit of the city's June guests. However exciting it might be to ride through the midnight streets of Chicago to the tune of a shrieking siren, not all visitors care for such a venture. There was Oscar Dufrenne, for example. Known as the "Ziegfeld of France," he owns five of the largest music halls in Paris and is reputed to be worth some ten millions. M. Dufrenne was more interested in Chicago's taxi dance halls than in the crime situation. So we took him to the Club Floridan, a notorious taxi dance hall just over the river in West Madi son street. Now closed, it was said to have been operated by "Dago Lawrence" Mangano and his henchman, Jimmy Adducci, both of whom were allies of "Scarface Al" Capone. Here, M. Dufrenne, the discoverer of such international celebrities as Mistinguett, the Dolly Sisters and Maurice Chevalier, was properly shocked. He was startled at the naughty way in which the girls danced with the rooming house boys for ten cents a dance. The place was small, stuffy and ill- ventilated; an odor of cheap perfume was in the air; the jazz or chestra beat out a primitive tom-tom; the girls were seductively dressed, and everything was done to excite the boys who compose a large portion of the floating population of the city. No, M. Dufrenne did not dance, although several be-rouged and gum-chewing candidates tried to lure him onto the dance floor. "The police in Paris would close this place up," said M. Dufrenne, as we left. He then wanted to see Paul Whiteman. So we hopped into a cab and sped south to the New Granada cafe on Cottage Grove avenue, across the street from Oakwood cemetery. We had heard that Dufrenne was interested in getting Whiteman to sign for a season in Paris but that he first wanted to see what kind of show the King of Jazz put on. After viewing the performance for a while Dufrenne was apparently satisfied. We called for the manager to take M. Dufrenne's card to Whiteman. "Ask him if he will please come to our table," said the Frenchman. Soon after wards the manager returned and said that Mr. Whiteman would come out to see us. Later he came out and nonchalantly joined a group of friends at another table. An hour went by. Finally, M. Dufrenne got up, shrugged his shoulders, and left the place, completely indifferent. Then there was Mary Borden, the Chicago born Anglo-American novelist. Unlike her husband, Gen. Spears, she was more interested in Chicago's foreign districts than in the crime problem, although under our guidance she did pay a brief visit to the central police building in South State street. Afterwards, we visited the headquar ters of the rich and powerful On Leong tong in Chinatown, otherwise known as the Chinese City Hall, and the small colony of Arab rug merchants at eighteenth street and Wabash avenue. Standing before the shrine of Quan-ti, an cestral god of the On Leongs, while a subtle odor of incense charmed her nostrils, the famous London novelist took notes on a pad of paper as things were explained to her. She was fascinated by the gold filigree that formed the proscenium of the shrine, the rare old enamel ware and pewter pieces, the faded oil painting of Quan-ti, the mother-of-pearl and teakwood furniture, the embroidered peacocks and pheasants, the ancient bronze vases and the general color scheme of the room. Later, Mr. Frank Moy, the venerable "Mayor of Chinatown," appeared and exchanged pleasantries. Another English visitor who shared with Gen. Spears the rare thrill of riding in a detective bureau squad car was Ronald Tree, step-son of Lord Beatty. Mr. Tree's wife is a niece of Lady Astor. He is well-known in Chicago society, his mother be ing a member of the Marshall Field family. It was during one of his many trips to town that we rode with him in a squad car through the badlands of the west side. On that occa sion, we stepped into an Italian restaurant shortly after midnight. The place was con ducted by Joe Montana, a bootlegger, whose young son had once been tried and acquitted for the killing of a policeman. Tables and chairs, a mechanical piano and colored paper streamers, that hung from the ceiling like spokes from an axle, formed the interior. No customers were present. A swarthy Sicilian waiter, towel in hand, greeted us. "Where's Joe?" asked the squad leader. "Over there, sergeant," said the waiter, pointing to a corner of the room. Sure enough, there was Joe. His head was dropped over his chest and his chair was tilted against the wall. He was sound asleep — or so we thought until the sergeant explained things. "He's only faking," said the sergeant. "He saw us drive up in front of his place, then crawled into the hay. Foxy guy!" Mr. Tree watched with amusement as the squad leader walked over and, cupping his hands, shouted, "Joe!" Joe pretented to awaken sleepily. Then he registered surprise upon recognizing his visitors. He got up and offered to give us all a spaghetti meal, but we declined with thanks. We then departed, after the sergeant and his men visited the kitchen to assure themselves no one was hid- June, 1932 25 ing there. "We keep an eye on this place for suspicious characters," explained the sergeant to Mr. Tree. A few days later Mr. Tree picked up a morning paper and read that the place had been raided by police on a tip that Mr. Joe Montana, purveyor of spaghetti, was a "fence" for a gang of fur thieves. Mr. Montana and some of his waiters were marched off to the bowels of the bastille. A quantity of stolen furs were found on the second floor of his establishment. The most exciting ad venture experienced by a foreign visitor to Chicago, to our knowledge, was that which befell Mr. Georges London, dean of Paris journalists. He had been sent by his paper, Le Journal, to write a series of stories about conditions in Chicago. We were in the coroner's office in the county building one day when a call came in that State Senator John T. Joyce had been found dead in bed under mysterious circumstances. Grabbing his hat and coat, the coroner told us to follow him. Traffic policemen cleared the way for the official car and street-cars and automobiles stopped in their tracks. Over the La Salle street bridge we sped at breakneck speed. After dodging in and out of traffic on near north side streets, we arrived before the Joyce apartment in Streeterville. We followed the coroner into the apartment and there saw the dead body of the state sen ator, lying in his bed. His wife had col lapsed in another room of the house. The coroner took charge and ordered everyone to remain in the house. By this time a detective bureau squad and several uniformed police men had arrived and stood by. Since I was on active duty as a newspaper man it was necessary for me to leave the apartment and hurry across the street to a hotel telephone. "You stay here, Mr. London, and pick up what information you can and I'll be back very shortly," I said to the Parisian journalist. He could speak English fluently and I knew that his training as a newspaper man would be of service in this instance. When I returned I found a crowd of re porters at the front door of the apartment. Standing guard was a uniformed policeman with orders to allow no one to enter. I said nothing but thought of the Parisian journalist, inside. Finally, after twenty minutes, M. Lon don came out. By this time the reporters and photographers were on the sidewalk in front of the apartment. I casually stepped up and whispered to my guest to walk down the street a bit and I would catch up with him a few minutes later. This he did. While the other reporters were fuming and fretting among themselves over being barred from the apart ment, I talked with M. London, getting a com plete story for my editor. "Didn't the policemen in the apartment wonder who you were?" I asked. "Apparently not," said the Frenchman. "I guess they thought I was a criminologist from the Scientific Crime Detection Laboratory at Northwestern University. I heard one of them say so to another policeman." After being in Chicago for almost two months, M. London returned to Paris and penned his experiences in a series of articles for his paper, which were later brought out in book form under the title Deux Mois avec les Bandits de Chicago. URBAN PHENOMENA The Good Old Summertime By Virginia Skinkle WHAT with all this Sunshine, a good game of golf, a few week-ends in the country and the final decision not to let anyone in the house who mentions the stock market, we're afraid we feel better.

A well-known Architect had just moved out of one of the Better Modern apartments on Elm Street. Having heard that such things as murals, mantels, etc., remained in the vacant establishment, a friend of ours decided to sneak in and have a look before the next tenants moved in. In one of the rooms she discovered a painter in white overalls looking perplexed, and frowning at a drawing done on the wall. It was the vague but charming outline of a woman, done by a modern artist. The people who were moving in thought the picture looked unfinished and told the painter to finish it. The girl asked him if the pros pect of "completing" a masterpiece wasn't a little frightening. "Oh, no," he replied rightly, "all I lack is time. You see I have to paint the kitchen and bath room walls first."

She spent weeks calling widows, known and un known, and telling them they should be pro tected. Nothing seemed to happen except the Widows being Amused. Finally she came to the conclusion that the best way to go about it was to invite them all to her house to a combination Party and First Meeting. She did. They came. It was a swell party, but they never got around to discussing the busi ness of a Protective League. After the cele bration she lost interest and decided to run for alderman instead. However, the widows had a grand time and we suppose there will always be someone or other to protect them.

Walgreen 744 Bowen Avenue Chicago Dear Mr. Walgreen: For some weeks now, I've meant to sneak away for a quiet hour with my typewriter and pour out my troubles to you. What with spring's belated arrival, the opening of the croquet season and one thing and another, I just haven't found the time. But the situation has been getting tenser daily, Mr. Walgreen. And now with your English Lavender Shav ing Cream, I've really got to break down and tell all. Let me assure you in advance, however, that there is no more ardent admirer of your handiwork than I. In fact, you can have no real cause for dissatisfaction with me as a cus tomer. I have frequently popped into your numerous drug stores — a quaint and archaic misnomer, don't you think? — to purchase, at a saving of course, my favorite razor blades, tooth brushes and pastes, soaps, gargles, and such articles as a bachelor is always running out of. I have dallied with your chocolate milk shakes and quaffed your lime rickeys. I have even had a "tongue on rye." On the way out I have often bought three five cent packages of mints for ten cents. And finally I have eagerly grasped the coupon entitling me to two seats for the price of one at a loop theatre. I hope you won't think me ungrateful, then, or feel that I am biting the hand that — shall we say? — has fed me, if I speak out about your recent tactics. Admittedly you won me by your appeal to my sense of economy, my parsimoniousness. I came to you because you had the things I wanted and could save me money. That was indeed an idyllic relationship, Mr. Walgreen, and I rejoiced in it. Nothing need have marred our happiness. But you began to grow restless, covetous. You developed ideas of your own about what I ought to buy. When I said Listerine, you were right there with a cheaper and better antiseptic. If I wanted a Prophylactic tooth brush, you emphatically assured me that Dr. So-and-So's was its equal. In fact, you seemed a little bit aggrieved and surprised because I didn't embrace your sug gestions. We parted, I am sure, mutually irritated. I confess, Mr. Walgreen, to being a crea ture of habit. I have my likes, my prefer ences, among the commodities you sell and I stick to them. Somehow or other, I don't relish having it implied that I don't know what's good for me. I'm funny that way, but when I ask for Kolynos tooth paste I like to get it without an argument. You may accuse me of being the unthinking victim of a national advertising campaign; you may charge me with being stubborn, unen lightened, reactionary; you may say that my mind is closed to change, to progress and im provement; or you may shrug your shoulders and murmur something about sheer per versity. All of which, doesn't alter the fact June, 1932 that the final decision in our little transaction is mine, does it? Now I am nothing if not loyal, Mr. W., and in spite of our little tiffs, I continued to give you all my trade. It was you who precipi tated the crisis, when I was buying some cleansing fluid about a month ago. You decid ed that I and about a million other Chicagoans should buy something you were most enthu siastic about, English Lavender Shaving Cream. (Do you import it or make it here in Chicago?) It so happens that I have very definite views on the subject of shaving cream for my face. I like to think that I have a very sensitive skin. You had imbued one of your assistants with a fiery elo quence, an unquenchable fervor on the subject of English Lavender Shaving Cream. He was a positive zealot and it seemed like flying in the face of providence to deny him his life's ambition. As I recall it, I was so aroused and embittered by the encounter that I retired into one of your telephone booths, without buying a slug, and brooded. Again I tried to make a simple, innocent purchase quite unrelated to shaving cream and again met with an equally evangelistic sales man. When he finally implored me to "feel the oily base," I fled. Yet once more did I creep into one of your emporiums and seek comfort in a chocolate milk shake. The personable young lady who served me, first tried and failed to get my authorization for the insertion of an egg into the concoction. Then — God's truth, Mr. Walgreen — she occu pied my remaining minutes with a glowing dissertation on the merits of, — yes, precisely — English Lavender Shaving Cream. You get the preposterous piquancy of the incident, don't you? Suppose you came out to my office to see me about putting up a fire escape. What would you think if I tried fiercely to also sell you a three foot iron vase for your garden or cemetery lot? Possibly I'm just a persnickety, old-fash ioned crank, but this high-powered salesman ship doesn't go with me. I become savage, dangerous, another person altogether. It probably won't make any difference to you that I'm staying away, but I thought I'd like to tell you why for old times' sake. Let me know, will you, if you go back to your former way of selling things? I'll come running back, ready to make up and be friends again. In fact, I'll even look over your book racks and dare an Inner Toasted Liver Sausage Sandwich. That's meeting you half way. Hopefully yours, Durand Smith 2340 Clybourn Avenue Chicago "CAN I INTEREST YOU IN A VERY FINE SPECIAL ON ENGLISH LAVENDER SHAVING CREAM?" 35 Alburn Chicagoans NUMBER FOUR By Jane Spear King Note: By accentuation of essentials of character, the artist has striven to capture something of the essence of those ancients whose fertile ideals have been sown in the heart of our Prairie Metropolis. John H. Kinzie, son of first settler John Kinzie, was the initial pioneer of Chicago, Father Marquette the discoverer and a negro named Jean Baptiste the first resident. Father Marquette died. Jean Baptiste, in 1 779, built his cabin at Rush Street and the river mouth, and fifteen years later mi grated to Peoria. A Frenchman appropri ated his abandoned cabin and sold it to John Kinzie, who made his appearance in 1803. It was through the efforts of Mr. Kinzie that a fort was erected in the neigh borhood of his north shore residence, and named for General Dearborn, Secretary of State. Walter L. Newberry came from Con necticut in 2833, began with merchandizing, and turned to ban\ing and eventual wealth. He presided over the Board of Education and the Chicago Historical Society ]or some years. He gave one-half of an extensive fortune for the establishment of the New berry Library. Philo Carpenter opened his drug store, one hot summer day, in a log house on the ban\ of the river. Two years later, he went bac\ to T^ew Tor\ to fetch his bride. The couple returned in a one hoss shay of deco rative aspect, and it was their special dis tinction to be the first to approach Fort Dearborn in a pleasure vehicle. Carpenter began early, and wisely, to invest in germ sites that were to increase in value and in import as the city multiplied. William H. Wells was one of the city's most eminent educators. He earned an honorary degree from Dartmouth. He wrote several text boo\s of importance. He at tained the vice-presidency of the Chicago Astronomical Society. He was a director of the Public Library, and a member of the Historical Society. And. finally, he super intended the Chicago Public Schools, in that particular system's more affluent days, from 18S6 to 1864. J. Young Scammon was another, compara tively obscure, whose varied deeds contrib ute to city history. Through his influence a Free School clause was inserted in the first charter granted the city. He helped pro mote the entrance of eastern railways and helped organize the system of western rail connections. He was one of the organizers of the Academy of Sciences. And he was significantly concerned with that reconstruc tion made indispensable through the accident in Mrs. O'Leary's barn. Joseph Medill wal\ed nine miles every Saturday to study Latin and Philosophy with a clergyman in Clinton, Ohio. He became editor of the Chicago Tribune in the Civil 'War Days, and was a staunch supporter of the Union. He was one of the founders of that great international news gathering ma chine, The Associated Press. And he was mayor of Chicago immediately following the Blaze of '71. 36 The Chicagoan Is Divorce a Racket? Picking the Wedlock Under a Spotlight By Roland J. Hennepin BECAUSE of a provision in the Illinois Statutes, it is easier to get a divorce in Chicago than almost any place in the world, including Reno, Paris, and Arkansas, but exclud ing Russia. In some parts of Mexico, it is comparatively simple, but usually illegal. But an Illinois decree is valid any where. Several celebrities, and many others have secured divorces in Chicago, because the statute provides that if the act complained of was com mitted in Illinois while one or both of the parties were resi dents of the state, it is one exception to the requirement that a residence of one year is essential to confer jurisdiction on the local courts. It has been pointed out that this provision opens the door to collusion, but if both parties are represented by counsel, and they stipulate to have the matter heard as an un contested one, there is no collusion; or if one party defaults, there is no collusion; but such is the whim of our law, that if two people find that they cannot amicably continue in the holy state, and agree to divorce each other, that would be collusion. In Illinois, and perhaps in other jurisdic tions, divorce is not a hot weather necessity for in that great state of Lincoln, Loga.n and our cheers (I think the song goes), during July, August and September, the Circuit and Superior courts (which have concurrent juris diction) will hear only emergency matters, and divorce, they decided, is not an emergency. It was ever thus, in the land of the free, prop erty interests are of greater importance than human interests. During the emergency term of court, innumerable petitions to foreclose mortgages, appoint receivers, enjoin picketting, and such other emergency matters are heard. Newly elected judges, regardless of their fit ness, training, prior experience or aptitude, are placed in the criminal and divorce courts. Less harm can be done there to property rights. Human rights, I suppose, are easier to determine. Divorce occupies a pe culiar place in modern journalism too, although just why that essential readjustment of the marriage institution should be so publicized, I can't quite understand, unless tabloidism can not survive without it, nor can lawyers who seek publicity. As I understand the ethics of the legal pro fession enunciated in the canons of the American Bar Association, a lawyer is not per mitted to advertise for divorce cases, or make any solicitation for business. And yet, one can't pick up certain Chicago newspapers without seeing a divorce story carrying this revealing phrase in it, "According to a bill for divorce filed by Attorney So and So ... " I have followed the appearance of many such divorce stories through the court hearings, and seldom if ever, have the items that have gone to make up the news element of the story been brought out in court as a part of the evidence. The obvious conclusion, then, is that the allegations in the bill are only for the purpose of grabbing space. Without the complicity of reporters, I am sorry to say, lawyers of that type, couldn't get their names in the papers. Some examples of such stories and their in ceptions are herewith noted : Mrs. R. B. went to a lawyer whose name she had seen in the paper and complained that she wanted a divorce from her husband because he can't support her. Her husband lost a leg in the war and was unable to secure steady work. The lawyer told the woman that was not a ground for divorce. Couldn't she think of some cruelty he had inflicted on her? Well, he went to a lot of wrestling matches and prize fights staged by the American Legion and thus left her home alone very often. "When he returned, did he try some of the punches on you, or the holds he had seen?" asked the lawyer. "Well, yes, sort of." And lo, a rela tive was commandeered as a witness and the story read: Fight Fan Husband Tries Punches on Wife A chorus girl complained that her husband was jealous so he beat her, though she never gave him provocation. Well, that was too ordinary to make a story. Leading questions by the lawyer brought out that the beatings were periodical and calculated to make her unattractive to men at least part of the time. The husband was out ¦west in the X state, where many of the beat ings occurred. The papers car ried this headline: Cultist Husband Beats Wife as Part of Ritual The governor of the X state wired the lawyer, whose name was in the paper, of course, for the location of the cult in his fair state. The girl got pages and pages of publicity and a part in a show. The lawyer, more business. Another girl, and another lawyer, discovered that she bore the family name of one of the crowned heads of Europe. In his bill for divorce, although that had nothing to do with the case, of course, the lawyer set out the alleged relationship. The papers carried the girl's picture and a caption, Beauty of Royal Blood Seeks Divorce from Commoner International complications were avoided by the withdrawal of the case. It was subse quently started over without the fanfare of black ink. Other stories, none of them true in fact, carried captions like these: Husband Quits Work When Wife Gets Job Accordion Player Uses Wife's Neck for Practice Husband Beats Wife When She Prevents His Suicide Wife Begins Suit with His Christmas Gift — charges husband in cross-bill Singer Loses Bathhouse Rubber She Mar ried as Count Dancing Wife Divorces Singing Husband Wife Sounds Marital Taps — husband re hearses BAND AT HOME WIFE RETALIATES BY singing. fight ensues. husband uses cornet as weapon Artist Husband Slings Paint and Palette at Wife Yale Loses — wife of former yale football star charges husband uses her as football DUMMY. (There are many variations of the foot ball fable.) Wife Charges Husband Gave Her Wooden Coffin as Wooden Anniversary Present Then Deserted Her A husband and wife were hoofers (dancers) . The wife charged that the husband kicked her each day they were in Chicago as she ex ited from stage. The husband claimed he did it for a laugh. The wife claimed she couldn't continue work. No Laughing Matter Claims Kicked Wife In only one of the fore going stories were the charges brought out in court. In all the (Continued on page 57) June, 1932 37 DIANA WYNYARD If this lovely English girl conquers Hollywood, whither she is headed, as easily as she did Chicago, there will be another bright star on the cinema horizon. In The Devil Passes her blonde beauty and ingratiating acting were a perfect counterpoint for the dar\ satanic menace of Basil Rath- bone. It was no easy thing to shine among all the bright luminaries featured in that clever play, but Miss Wynyard was the one of whom the Town tal\ed. PHOTOGRAPH BV PAUL STONE'RAYMOR, LTD. The Season's Dying Pangs Plays Seeking Nomination by Both Republicans and Democrats By William C. Boyden IF it were not for the Conventions this month's column would probably be de voted to the Ten Best Plays of the Year or to a discussion of the relative merits of Ben Bernie and 'Mourning Becomes Electra. But quite a number of shows came in to brave the chill of May in the hope of collar ing some expense account money from the politicians. George M. Cohan is at the Grand in a con fection of his own brewing, Confidential Service. I took a friend who had never seen this unique actor. He was skeptical at first and wanted to know why Mr. Cohan talked out of the corner of his mouth, caressed his nose, crooked his index finger and made that gently propitiating gesture suggestive of a baseball umpire delicately calling a runner safe at first. With a heartfelt pity in my voice, I assured my friend that all those things are George M. Cohan, and that if he did not act thusly the customers would ask their money back. As the evening wore on, my guest got the point. Dramaturgically speaking, Confidential Service is weak. It deals awkwardly with the private detective racket; its movement is de liberate; its climaxes lack punch. Without Cohan, the play would soon pass into the limbo of forgotten things; with the ingratiating Irishman dominating every scene, the while manipulating the other characters as though he were a puppeteer, the entertainment value of the evening is at least above par. JVIetaphysical abstrac tions are great fun for playwrights. Death has appeared with a monocle; Pan in a cut away; God in a sack-suit; and now the Devil in a curate's vestment. And who could wear the cloth more becomingly than the tall, ascetic Basil Rathbone, he of the sharp profile and piercing eye? In The Devil Passes (Selwyn) he finds out what each member of a modern house-party desires most, puts fulfillment in their paths, and discovers that these worldlings are not as selfish as they would have one be lieve. Benn Levy has treated his thesis with intelligence, at the same time giving his char acters lines of definite sparkle. It is meet that one should toss one's hat in the air over the cast employed to merchandise Mr. Levy's bright theology. Depression values must account for such a galaxy in a show play ing to a $2.50 top. There is Arthur Byron, whose rakish old stage rascals make sin seem so suave. Here he is a pagan novelist, but not pagan enough to keep a delectable young girl as his mistress, when he finds she loves else where. Said girl is a newcomer, Diana Wyn- yard, attractive enough to send the boys to the dictionary for new adjectives. Just to coin one, she might be termed "deluscious." Carry ing on, we have Mary Nash, a little older but just as brilliant as ever. Then Robert Loraine, no longer the matinee idol who played Man and Superman, but a powerful character ac tor whose big scene is the high dramatic spot of the evening. And Cissie Loftus, perfect as the one professed Christian who needs no tempting. Less well known but no less ef fective is Eric Blore, sharp in his delineation of a bitter novelist who turns down a chance to purloin an unpublished manuscript of Joseph Conrad. The Devil Passes is one of the better evenings in the theater. It is usually a break for an actress to show her wares in a play by Ferenc Molnar, the big light-comedy man from Vienna. But in The Good Fairy (Har ris) Herr Molnar gets the break, to-wit, Helen Hayes. She makes an evening of delight out of a manuscript based on an amusing premise, but largely unfulfilled in its development. Her particular good fairy is a flighty little moll with the Christian ambition to make everyone happy, coupled with a Jesuitical disregard of the means employed. To impress an importu nate suitor, she invents a lawyer husband, and, when the amorous swain offers to make the husband rich, the addle-pated gal picks a lawyer out of the telephone book. What could be cuter? Unfortunately, Molnar has not worked out his theme with the richness which it deserves. The emphasis shifts from the girl to the brief less and boobish barrister, whose world so sud denly becomes topsy-turvy. Walter Connolley has the part, and I feel impelled to bring in a minority report on this usually fine actor. To me he seemed to be overacting most vilely. The restraint of his Uncle Vanya has given way to a technique of broad grimaces and ex aggerated gestures. One might also deplore a silly epilogue, appended to bolster up a feeble finale. Write all this on the debit side of the ledger, and Helen Hayes still keeps the pro duction out of red ink. Her touch is sure; her humor whimsical and elfish; her characteri zation warm and human. She is a grand little actress who has given us some of the nicest naughty girls the stage has offered. Every moment she is on the boards is a delight and an enrichment of material not worthy of its literary parentage. A better informed his torian might be able to recall when a revue played to a larger audience than the crowded Civic Opera House on the opening night of The Scandals. I can not. It was an evening for opera glasses before the footlights and strained larynxes behind. It was a moment when Rudy Vallee must have prayed for a microphone and Everett Marshall offered up thanks to his lucky star for a voice of opera proportions. Everyone seemed to be amazed that Rudy was so modest. Personally, I won dered what we could have thought if we had not known his identity. What a strange twist of public taste that makes this boy without acting ability or a voice of more than parlor proportions fabulously rich in the entertain ment field! Although the chorus is worthy of George White's justly famed power of appraisal, and Ethel Barrymore Colt is featured for no sound reason, the evening belongs to the men, par ticularly to Willie Howard. Grant that Wil lie is not a beautiful man, admit he is just a wee bit coarse, concede the greater personal charm of Jolson and Cantor, and still one could not be scoffed at for claiming that this funny little fellow is his favorite Jewish comic. As indicated, Everett Marshall has a gump tious voice, and he uses it. And Ray Bolger has very nimble tootsies, and he uses them. They say the dancing-pumps of Jack Donohue have slipped on to his feet. He gets more applause for one dance than Rudy Vallee gets for all his legato warbling. Much of the sing ing, including the ubiquitous Bowl of Cher ries, is done by a Miss Joan Abbott. I can not imagine why. By and large, a good aver age Scandals, a big show under a big tent. The last to come, and likely the last to go, is Hay Fever ( Adelphi) , one of the many things on which that Admir able Crichton of the Drama, Sir Noel Coward, is collecting royalties. In giving the Mr. Cow ard a title, I am not trying to be jocose, mere ly prophetic, for my English scouts tell me the King was so pleased with Calvacade that he is going to put the accolade on Noel's shoulder. One used to compare this brilliant young Englishman with our own George Cohan, par ticularly as regards versatility, but it must be confessed that neither Cohan nor anyone else can approach Coward in sheer virtuosity. Hay Fever has been reviewed so often in Chicago during the past year that any ex tended comment here on the play as a play would be repeating myself three times and my betters at least twice. So to the acting. This bright and brittle comedy of English life has now the sort of cast it demands, namely, a parcel of smooth Britishers. Three or four stand out. Constance Collier, the star, han dles the rich part of the retired actress with sophisticated sureness; Eric Cowley makes the husband an Englishman to suit the most ex acting American requirements; the son and daughter are played with charm and whole- someness by Anthony Kemble Cooper and Betty Linley. The others fit snugly into the scheme of things. Miscellaneously speak ing, there was a week of Don Pasquale (Black- stone), with Senor Trevisan. For some unaccountable reason the drama critics were asked to cover this opera, and when they dis covered the deception after Act I, all their music critic colleagues had disappeared into the neighboring speakeasies. The perform ance seemed terrible to me, but I would not know about such things. Then there were the Tatterman Marionettes at the Goodman. June, 1932 39 Landscaped Skylines Spring on the Penthouse Plateau By Edwin C. Mack IT is high time somebody wrote a book for penthouse gardeners — at least an Outline — and who knows less about it than I? Of course, no such flimsy pretext excuses me. For qu'ils s 'excuse, s'accuse, I always say. Briefly, I am cooperating with several air lines in the removal of unsightly roofs (with out violence) , and naturally expect every pent- houser to set an example. (Have you flown over the Morrison lately? I hear their petits pois are already showing!) And behind my effort, you will have guessed, lies the motive of education. The Modern Child things romaine is brought by the stork, I believe. Spinach, for all he learns, is born without root or parent — and a good thing, too. Nevertheless, the facts of life are what they are, and he might as well face them up here in the penthouse jardinet as elsewhere. "Turnips," advised Mark Twain, "should never be pulled; it injures them. It is much better to send a boy up and let him shake the tree." Even a child should know you can't shake turnips from a tree without their bruis ing. That's what gardening should teach. Now, this talk of turnips and peas is all very utilitarian and uninspiring, perhaps, but you really should see my esch- scholtria two months from now. Above the frostline as we are, the planting season is rather early — in fact, we use Mountain Time in calculating — and any day now you may see me out with spade, hoe and water pot, drop ping eschscholtzia seeds here and there. I said may. The penthouse Roger Kingsleys, by the way, are sowing nasturtia (delicious, too) and broc coli this year in alternate rows. It seems the male of the broccoli is not indifferent to the feminine nasturtium. That's Burbank, you see; although some whisper he picked it up from Culbertson. And speaking of crosspollination, I must praise our tiny winged friends, the bees and wasps (with later a word on those little pests, the locust and Junebug). We really don't know what we owe these busy matchmakers, though I sometimes think of arsenic on sugar. As for the Junebugs, I have had no trouble at all with them, personally, since discovering Tvfai\dfersuppe in Berlin. Now, I have only to shout, "Mai\afersuppe" a few times a season, and my garden is ridded. They simply don't like to be made into these German dishes. Then there is the ladybird — pretty creature — and a horrid nuisance; the cutworm is color ful but he doesn't amount to much, either. Both turn my mind to Borgia and ratpoison, I don't know why. (Nothing excels hellebore, one part to one of flour, dusted over the leaves.) Needless to say, many garden enemies are unable to reach the higher elevations, espe cially above the timberline. If you're bothered by rabbits, it's just your fault. There are a few cau tions to be given. Don't set the crimson fire- bush near building edges; they're apt to grow dizzy, especially if potted. And avoid planting strong-rooted things at all : they've been known to push through to the apartment below in search of food and drink, fun and frolic or what have you. Since only the hardiest seeds thrive at the altitude of buifdingtop homes, it is well to chose dealers with care. Congressmen are not recommended. I quote you Henry T. Finck in "Gardening with Brains": "Government seeds may be good, and doubtless they are — some times." To which I should add, "perhaps." One of the joys of the penthouse jardin is staying up to watch the Morning Glories open. The Nipponese (when not fighting) like to watch the asagao open, too; only they prefer breakfast at five when they do. Of course, that's Japan. One of the grand things about the garden ing business, itself, high up here, is the lack of weeds. After the first year, practically everything weedlike you uproot will be some thing else. Last but never least, don't forget the ber ries, when landscaping your plateau this Spring. Of course they draw bears. But what is there nicer, when you're strolling, than to come upon a sudden clump of wild grapes — known, perhaps, to only Nature and you! For eating, however, you had better pick the tame kind. And about blackberries — if you're tempted — remember the old mot : they're green when they're red! 40 The Chicagoan Clothes for June Moods Knee Deep in Cool Fabrics By The Chicagoenne IN some future year, when everyone is toss ing filthy lucre about again, with all of us sprinting from the new to newer, and de signers wearing us out with a costly fad per minute, we'll look back with a sentimental sigh to that dear old summer of 1932. For the signs point to one of the most comfort able, crisp and straightforward summers since we climbed out of the short chemise dress a few years ago. With this difference — we'll be simple and cool and practical but exceedingly graceful and feminine at the same time — not the grotesque, foreshortened tubs we were then. For one thing, there aren't many slimpsy fabrics to clutter the* scene. Lots of cottons and fine wools and interesting knits, with the silks pebbled or roughened or heavily ribbed to give them resistance to summer winds and keep them from going limp and gooey on us in the hottest sun. Even chiffon grits its teeth and acquires a backbone. The traditional femininity with the new dashing spirit is shown in several afternoon chiffons at the Blackstone Shop: These are closely shirred all over in narrow lines to give the whole thing a firm crinkly look while they remain softly flattering. One in a brilliant blue has collars and cuffs of silk pique in a shell pink with double rows of pink buttons down the front, and the other in shirred beige acquires double verve from its wide brown belt of brown cire ribbon. Browns and yellows are a definite part of the summer color scheme. The crepe daytime dress illustrated, from Mc- Avoy, is finely checked in a greeny yellow and brown. One flower on the shoulder is solid brown and one is the checked dress fabric. McAvoy also shows an interesting color note in a sports frock of bois de rose worn with a wide brown suede belt, in a dusty pink dress with a brown belt and brief brown jacket, and in printed batiste dresses in brown and white. These batistes are delightful for hot hot days, just as dainty as handkerchief linen but not so crushable. At the Blackstone Shop there's a brown and white crepe so finely checked it looks like a copper screen, and it's finished off with a bang by a cluster of red and white organdie poppies on the shoulder. Here too, you must look for a new dotted pique, very fresh-looking in a yellow dress topped with cotton lace and with a jacket of the same pique. And don't miss the white dress with its rough hand-knit ef fect, little yellow jacket buttoned by great metal discs and huge brown and white dotted chiffon scarf. Summer's not summer to many gals without several splashes of bright red and white and the Blackstone answers the cry splendidly with a sleeveless tennis dress in white silk crepe finished off at the neck by three of those tricky fin pleats and three long red buttons. When you finish playing, or if you don't play at all, you wear with this a bright little red jacket whose short puffed sleeves form that swell capeline about the shoulders. Carrying these colors on into the evening, McAvoy shows Vionnet's lovely white crepe gown with a wide red and white dotted chiffon scarf draped in a cowl-ish line about the front and floating away in two long streamers down to the hem in back. I thought I'd be quite content to forswear printed crepe for several years to come until I saw McAvoy's new ones in heavy dull crepe with huge flowers splashed all over them in the most fascinating tones — chartreuse and red on dark green, blues and greens on black, yellows and bois de rose on black — they may sound like the d. t.'s but they're really enchanting. Another new splash — and a very important one — on the evening horizon is printed mous- seline de soie. This is quite irresistible in the frock illustrated, from the Blackstone Shop. On a faint coral background large yellow roses and green leaves weave a cool pattern. The sash is a pale lemon velvet. The lines of the dress are magnificent — closely molded with an interesting swirled cut about the slender sheath to the knees and a sweep into a faintly flounced effect to the hem. The shoulders drop in that Empire line which is about the most flattering frame that was ever devised for good shoulders and the quaint double pouffs over each arm are (Continued on page 56) TAO TAl'S WHITE KNITTED SUIT WITH RED AND WHITE STRIPED JACKET; BRADLEY: BRIL LIANT BLUE IN A LACY WEAVE, CRISP WITH WHITE PIQUE VEST, CUFFS, AND PIQUE HAT; BLACKSTONE SHOP: MC AVOY'S YELLOW AND BROWN CREPE SLENDER WITH CROSSED TIES AND PUFFED SLEEVES, UNDER A FLIP STRAW AND GROSGRAIN BROWN HAT.

Friday to Monday This Business of Summer Entertaining By The Hostess NO matter how many times we may have been burned at the weekend fire, few of us can learn to leave it alone. Innumerable guests and innumerable hostesses have sighed a "Thank God" and a "Never Again" as Monday morning rolled around. But the following week finds the hostess busi ly filling the guest room vases for another batch, while last week's guest struggles with timetables to a different neck of the woods. All the disappointments find their compensa tion, however, in the perfect holidays when everything clicks — the guests are genial, the host and hostess unharassed, and the hours trickle happily along to an almost tearful parting. Because of visits such as this the old caravan will keep on rolling towards country houses this summer, even though there may be only one cook and a scanty cellar, though everyone goes Dutch on golf and parties at the club. To meet the caravan unharassed is the first duty of the hostess, and I've been cruising about for weeks now getting ideas that will make this duty more pleasant. (The cruise will probably continue through the summer — it's more fun than hunting Christmas gifts.) After making the schedule of what to feed the brutes at the regular mealtimes, comes the much more engaging problem of those snacks and drinks at all the fantastic hours when people raise a thirst and a hunger over the weekend. If it's at all possible do contrive a separate pantry and supplementary refrigera tor for off-hour prowling exclusively. The investment repays itself tremendously in the comfort of host and guests, and in your peace of mind about Katie, whose scowl becomes a fearsome thing after the Mister has wandered in for the fourth time to squeeze limes and drip ice cubes among her roasts and pastries. In this refrigerator you can keep pitchers of lime and lemon and grapefruit juice, bottles of tomato juice, gin ger ale, White Rock, and all the flavors you need for cold drinks and punches, as well as for canapes and sandwiches. A large vitalizer filled with washed celery, radishes and other salad vegetables keeps them delightfully crisp for use at any time. This is the place for those fruit essences and mixtures which give an authentic old flavor to your alcoholic drinks or may be used in non-alcoholic punches and the like. Mou- quin, for instance, has special shaker bottles containing his already mixed Manhattan, Bronx and Martini cocktails. The Mouquin cocktails, and the Mouquin Club Beverages — Mint Julep, Clover Club, Jinric\ey — are heavenly after a lot of dashing about in the sun. They are non-alcoholic, of course, and some people do have them that way, but does mother have to tell you — ??? Incidentally, you should have a taste of Mouquin Cups, an alcoholic dessert sauce packed under govern ment permit, which gives a chef's tang to pud dings, fruit salads and other desserts. An icy fruit cocktail flavored with a Rum Mouquin Cup is something to start the dinner table cheering. These appear also in Port, Sherry, Claret, and Brandy flavorings. The woods are thick with charts and recipe A SPECIAL SET FOR THE TOMATO JUICE COCKTAIL IN HEISEY GLASS e m IP THE NEWEST WRINKLE IN GERMAN BEER GLASSES; VON LENGERKE fe? ANTOINE FOSTORIA'S COMPLETE BEVERAGE SET FOR EVERY TYPE OF WEEKEND THIRST books but even at that you'll find Mouquin's book of Personal Recipes well-worth having about, if only because it gives the authentic procedure for preparing a Mint Julep and in cludes, in addition to the beverage mixtures, some of the precious old recipes of the res taurant — Onion Soup, Pierre Berard's recipe for Chic\en a la King, Champignons a la Vin Blanc, and a lot of others. In nearly every group now you'll find women with a thought to their waistlines and complexions passing up the alcoholic drinks no matter how ardently they are working for that something-some thing-something for Prohibition Reform. You win their hearts, and the hearts of all the guests at certain times of the day, when noth ing is quite so completely satisfying as a to mato juice cocktail. There are so many ex cellent tomato juices on the market, extracted from perfectly ripened tomatoes and various ly flavored or not flavored at all, that it's much simpler to have a supply of these on ice than to bother having them squeezed yourself. Richelieu, College Inn, Campbell, Heinz and other companies have splendid rich juices which you can use as is, or flavor to suit your personal fancy. All sorts of things blend nicely with to mato juice. Experiment with Worcestershire sauce, lemon, sugar, onion salt, celery salt or bruised fresh celery, until you get just what you want. Personally, I think the juice with a dash of lemon and salt is perfect but many like a highly spiced beverage. Everywhere, too, I hear people shouting about tomato juice mixed half and half with clam juice, with sauerkraut juice, and even pineapple juice. It's good any way, and darned good for you when the weekend begins to get you down. Grapefruit juice is another item which is splendid by itself as a breakfast beverage or as a mixer. College Inn has a new Grapefruit Juice Cocktail in a glass shaker bottle all ready to mix. And White Rock pops up with a recipe for Orange Freeze which is about the most delectable non-alcoholic beverage you can imagine for a hot afternoon: 1 quart orange ice 1 fresh mint sprig 3 pint bottles Pale Dry Ginger Ale Pour the ginger ale over the orange ice and nv'nt. This serves six. Then you know, of course, that your Tony or Alfredo can deliver a keg of beer all tucked in its icing coils, complete with pump and paraphernalia. And that, leaping to the other side of the fence, iced tea is much better if you use a tea blended especially for icing. Stop and Shop has an Arctic Tea which is packed for this purpose. Jdut man does not live bv drink alone. The appetite of a city guest, after two hours in country air becomes prac tically constant.

The purpose of this little column is to make both the wailing and sickly grinning unneces sary. Instead of regretting too bit' terly that happy crossing to South ampton many budget-shrunken folk are suddenly looking out the window and shouting "Ship Ahoy!" It is rather surprising that s-a many many Chicagoans have failed to realize, till this year of economy, that those blue waves of Lake Michigan carry whole fleets of ships and that it's not im possible to dash off for a refreshing short cruise even though one doesn't own a yacht. Last year people in the cast began organizing four or five day house parties on the ocean and the idea is catching hold here this summer. We have a sizable spot of water right at our doors, too, and some fine ships which are organizing just such parties for those who must snatch a brief holiday whenever they can in this un certain summer. The idea gives food for thought. You have seen some of the hand some steamers nosing their way up to Navy Pier, but now look at them a little more thoughtfully. Eastern States, for instance, is really a hand some ship and modern. If you fol lowed her out into the lakes you would find people sipping tea on her spacious decks, a game of quoits or deck golf in jubi'ant action, and valiant athletes trudging around and around with just as much exhilaration as they feel in ocean air. 1 HE dining room is cool and attractive, the food is ex cellent, the staterooms are so large and airy that midsummer nights find you snuggling gratefully under several blankets. These arc the ships carry ing the special groups which the De troit and Cleveland Navigation Com pany is organizing for Chicagoans, and they olfer just about all the peace and relaxation of an ocean voyage without mal de mer. One five-day cruise has been ar ranged which leaves Chicago Mon day afternoon and brings you back Saturday morning, as rested as if you had been away for weeks. Tues day morning finds the ship approach ing Mackinac, a spot decidedly worth re-discovering. Most of us can remember childhood outings to the Island, and 1932 finds it still un spoiled. The noisy excursions visit Mackinac over weekends and this cruise finds it at a time of fresh and smiling quiet. Cruise rates include really good accommodations at the Grand Hotel with members of the party entitled to swimming and golf privileges. This cruise, it is noted with a certain stimulating tingle, has been named for this always travel- wise and duly appreciative magazine. In the three days at the Island you have an opportunity to get in plenty of activities in the way of swimming, golf, riding, tennis and fishing or to browse about and recapture some youthful enthusiasm about the history of our own part of the country. Nothing disturbs the calm of the old British fort about which French and Indians and Brit ons struggled a hundred years ago. Nothing disturbs your calm either, for the honk of the automobile is still unknown in Mackinac. You cap ture some of the gay spirit of Ber muda as you joggle about in a buggy or careen wildly along on a bicycle. If only to cycle again I'd run up to Mackinac now and then. There are other trips of equal in terest, some five days, some seven or longer. The voyage through the lower lakes with a stop at Mackinac and on to Detroit and Buffalo is rest ful and has points of real beauty as it winds through narrow channels and past picturesque islands. And since we've taken up roller skating again we might as well go completely 1890 and take a look at Niagara too; then run across to Victoria and go Cana dian in refreshments. All of this at amazing prices. Not a bad idea at all to remember that the lake we always have with us. The Chicagoan Ladies and Gentlemen- Let us be coo Sultry summer evenings never bother those smart Chicagoans who know about The Belmont. Here they come for dinner, to dine coolly and delight fully in our Empire Room, and sip their after dinner coffee in the Empire Lounge — both rooms kept eternally at 70° regardless of the hot pavement outside. Then — up to our roof garden to sit in easy chairs and watch tha sunset colors fade on harbor, park and lake. And finally, in the cool of the night — homeward — well fed — comfortable — relaxed. And all this luxury at such a trivial cost. REGULAR TABLE D'HOTE DINNERS INCLUDING SUNDAYS $<f.00 $<4.50 $Q-00 Hotel Belmont B. B. WILSON, Manager Single and double rooms with bath.

GERMANY GERMAN TOURIST INFORMATION OFFICE 665 Fifth Avenue, New York City Please Send Booklet F 62 and Tour Folder THOUGH May Day be marked in red on police calendars, the citizenry in general usually finds it no worse than October Day or any other moving occasion. In other words, they are all terrible, and even worse than moving day arc the other days and days of looking around, that singular species of hunting that is more deadly to the hunter than to the huntee. Now, between seasons, when everybody is somewhat rested after the strain of the great shift in May and it is possible to review the situation calmly, it appears that many pioperty owners are wiser, many ten ants sadder, men. This year found Chicago with a big stock of apartments, all used. The renter who tried to get a new one is a sadder man; the owner who tried to rent his without making it look as new as possible, is, or should be, wiser. The paint brush proved itself mightier than the smoothest sales talk and many places were rented by means of a simple application of tile in the bathrooms. A high kitchen sink with connected supplies and a swinging faucet attracted the ladies; men went for built in bathtubs and showers. K. nocking out par titions between sunparlors and living rooms and solaria and chambers met with favor; and green trim in the master bedroom in place of the out moded white helped to gloss over the lack of cross venti'ation. Of course central lighting fixtures are too archaic to be tolerated in any smart house; but the little lumps in the ceilings which now conceal old out lets cannot be forgiven if the substi tute side brackets arc not pleasing in design or amenable to attractive shad ing (new word). Open book shelves are the only kind to be found in anything that pretends to be a mod ern apartment and old timers are shedding their glass doors as fast as they are their built-in sideboards. The effect of ivory paint on the o'd time green tiles around the fireplace is not particularly happy, but many persons choose it as evidence of the fact that they know the fashionable thing even if they arc unable to achieve it. Many walls that once proudly wore paper are now can vassed and stippled ad nauseam; and kitchen stoves are selected for their esthetic rather than their culinary values. Here and there a hall closet is painted and refurbished with a view to conversion into a nose pow dery for the daughter or the lady guests. Radiators have retired be hind discreet gril'es or have slunk into hiding beneath window seats. Anyone who remembers the over head and under-foot wires that u?ed to be concealed along picture molds. revealed along base boards, and tripped over everywhere is very grate ful for the present abundance of base plugs which make it possible to hook up a lamp almost anywhere. Lights in closets have done much to improve the American disposition. Electric refrigeration, of course, is standard equipment. Porches are quite gen erally screened for summer and glazed for winter; and lino'.eum in the kitchen seems to be replacing china cabinets in the dining room. At least dining rooms are now bare, while tenants are generally demand ing covering for the kitchen and pan try floors. Judging by the number of Venetian mirrors in bathrooms, it would seem that no man could get a proper shave without one. In addition to these simple and more or less famil iar expedients for attracting the at tention of Mr. and Mrs. Renter and all the little Renters, there are on the market innumerable gadgets intended to beautify the home, simplify house keeping and increase the happiness and efficiency of all concerned there in. For example, monel metal and alleghany metal have gone into the pantry in the form of silvery, rust proof, non-corroding dish-washing sinks. Laundry tubs come in sani tary white enamel — I was about to say cellophane. There are on the market and in the newer and better apartments a variety of improvements on the old fashioned radiator. Appliances for increasing the mois ture in the air range from the simple humidifiers that form part of the ra diator cover all the way to complete air conditioning equipment. Whi!e air conditioning until now has been confined largely to office buildings and theatres it looms as one of the big aids to comfort in the residence of the future. The hotels, apart ment buildings and single family dwellings which everyone hopes are yet to be built, will undoubtedly con tain central conditioning devices, but in the meantime it is possible to ob tain small units for easy installation in any office or residence. The ex cessive dampness of the usual air cooled theatre can be corrected for home and office use. Modern weather regulation cools and dries the air on hot, sultry days, adds mois ture and diffuses controlled heat in the dry cold of winter. The Frig- idaire Corporation is now making such small units, which can be in stalled anywhere. The necessary ma chinery can be placed in a basement or closet, if you have one handy, and if not, in a sound-proof contraption that might pass as a desk. The con ditioning unit varies in size and de sign but is always capable of mas querading as a radiator, a highboy, or some other inconspicuous whatnot. While inventors and manufactur ers are working on such refinements for the home, other manufacturers, contractors and architects are dream ing of a future era of better houses in which to put them. New meth ods, new materials, new ideals and better adaptation of the old ones are occupying the thoughts of builders in these days when thinking is a builder's chief occupation. Some thing good will surely come of that. So a word of cheer to the recent mover who got seven rooms and two baths when he wanted six rooms and three baths, to the lady who had to take an early Coolidge living room when she wanted a modern library, and to all their brothers and sisters, there is hone that when building re vives it will be better and bigger.

Which means — no slack ing in the use of soothing lotions and meticulous nail attention after our hands have been busy in sea shore sands or garden soil. If you're going off to spots where good salons are non-existent you can really do wonders with a full complement of manicure knowledge and good tools. In her famous hand salon Peggy Sage introduces several ideas which may be effectively used at home. She always brushes the polish on the nails after first buffing them with powder pol ish to smooth out the surface texture, and then washing the hands in warm water. Nor does she use any oily preparation such as oils, creams, whitener, until after the polish as the film of oil on the nail prevents the liquid polish from adhering as smooth ly and lastingly as it does on a per fectly dry surface. After the polish she applies the nail white and cuticle oil or cuticle cream. You'll be de lighted to see what a beautifully fin ished and professional look this gives to the home manicure. 1 HE new container for Peggy Sage's liquid polish and polish remover is very ornamental and will add a fresh summery note to the dressing table. The silver box splashed with quaint sprigs of pink rosebuds drops a front panel to re veal the pair of bottles with caps of white and rose bakelite in slender cone shape. The cone cap is so practical because it screws down tightly but is easily removed and doesn't get jammed into the top the way a glass or cork stopper does. Then the brush for the polish is at tached to the cap so that it may be laid down without having the moist bristles splotch everything in sight. Peggy Sage has a new platinum polish which gives a very unusual moonlight shimmer to the nails and shou'd be quite lovely with summer evening things. It's also clever to apply it to the unpolished tip of the nail when some other color is used for the rest. And of course you know about her ensemble shades of liquid polish for carnival occasions (if you can get away with that sort of thing) — amethyst, green, sapphire blue, sil ver — though I like mine pink and un obtrusive in one of her medium shades for day and Pin\ Coral or Blush Rose for evening. Lips now — they can afford to be brilliant, especially with bright summer clothes. Marie Earle's new Vivid lipstick is a stun ning shade and blends splendidly with almost any complexion coloring.

The development of the motives seems murky and only the famous horn theme emerges with the requisite clar ity. It scarcely sounds like a Sto kowski recording. The famous mu sical tribute to the Firebringer comes off much better, however, and the piano part is capably carried. Victor issues some delightful new long-playing discs if your musical en gine is equipped for them — Viennese Melodies and Lehar Melodies, dou bled and played by Marek Weber's famous orchestra. They also an nounce a grand fantasy on familiar old waltzes of Johann Straus, a long- player. These two discs will make an undeniable appeal to lovers of the schnitzel and its milieu. Chicagoans will go for Noble Cain's recording of John Carpenter's Song of Faith. The work has re ceived considerable attention all over the country in connection with one George Washington. It is dignified, solid music, avoiding all mawkishness, a splendid addition to the Victor cata logue. It is unfortunate that it has to be divided into four ten-inch discs as the interruptions are too frequent. Just another problem for the gramo phone engineers to solve. And don't let it keep you from a purchase be cause it's not important enough. One more excellent Victor an nouncement, the Bach Toccata and Fugue in D minor, played by Wini fred Christie on the Bechstein-Moor piano, the one with the two key boards and the coupler. This re cording stands out as one of the best piano translations in the catalogues, a better one, incidentally, than Grain ger's interpretation for Columbia of the same work. The experts in the studios are obviously getting closer to a true reproduction of the piano tone every day. Columbia's Masterworks Set for the month is a volume of the Chopin Waltzes played by Robert Lortat, the same gentleman that made the Etudes. His pianism is warm, intelligent and full of imagination. If you buy this set, and it's eminently worth your while, don't play too many waltzes at a time. The repetition of the triple rhythm isn't good for Chopin or for you, and the fragile dances were never meant to be heard con secutively. Tauber sings on and on and, we are glad he does. He makes for Columbia a grand old Dutch hymn of thanksgiving Wtr Treiten zurn Beten coupled with Beethoven's Die Ehre Gottes aus der N.atur. Both employ auxiliary male choruses. We should not hesitate to call the four square hymn the most thrilling rec ord of the month. Following the example of Tibbet, perhaps, Tauber does two Loewe ballads Tom der Reimer and Die Uhr. They are not as exciting as Edward but Torre, the Rhymer is especially good, with its tinkling of magic bells in the accom paniment below the smooth flow of the Tauberian tenor. By the way, if you are a gramo phone fan and have no use for a radio combination you can find the most marvelous bargains in used ma chines around town. Most dealers in musical instruments (Lyon and Healy for certain) are featuring bar gain basements and they will ferret out good old machines for you, Vic tor, Brunswick and Columbia, and sell them to you at fantastic prices, sometimes at one-tenth of the original list. — R.

Introducing a Column By The Onlooker N.OTE: Perhaps this is the differ ent bridge department you have wait ed for. It has no pet theories and does not deal with hands that occur once in a blue moon. It isn't even written, just edited by a fine player of long experience who will review ac tual play as noted. Onloo\er invites description of unusual hands or plays witnessed by readers and will be pleased to ta\e them apart, find out what ma\es a tric\ tic\, and put them together again. "F kOUR down, doubled. Let's see, we aren't vulnerable — that's six hundred." She raised the little gold pencil from the smart score pad and paused. Then, as an afterthought: "Anyhow, part ner, they didn't go out! They had a spread for four spades. Now, if we get the next game " Strange. Away from the bridge table Frances is an excellent shopper and a keen judge of values. But put thirteen cards into her hand and she'll cheerfully pay Tiffany prices for paste. Her partner — the charming young mistress of one of the north side's most fashionable homes — nodded and smiled, though there was a pucker between her brows. "It's alright, Frances. Only, we haven't a game yet " "But if we win the next the pen- alty's only four hundred. And then, if we win the rubber " Which they didn't, and not sur prising, since the chances favored the other side two to one. To be exact, they lost an eighteen rubber, for Frances, spurred on by her initial loss, chanced a second penalty in a vain attempt to save the first. "Oh, I'm so sorry! Of all the wretched luck!" Even the opponents agreed with this, being most pleasant people. They didn't feel it their duty to ex plain to Frances that luck had no hand in the matter. Just a question of judgment. Uf course, six hun dred points is much too high a pen alty for the privilege of stopping game when you are not yet vulner able. Two hundred points when neither side is vulnerable, four hun dred with opponents vulnerab'e but you not vulnerable, and six hundred points with both sides vulnerable, should be the very top price to pay for stopping game. Or, ex pressed in tricks, this means two in the first instance, three tricks when the other side only has game, and two tricks with everybody vulnerable. All this on the assumption that the losing bid will be doubled by your alert opponents. There is one exception to this. Against a sure slam bid a penalty loss of six hundred is quite worth while.

Otherwise, how ever, it's just plain extravagance. Watch good play ers and you'll find that they bid with tricks and pass without them. Say what you will, aces, kings and queens take deuces, treys and fours just about ninety-eight times out of a hundred. Even the finest playing and bidding skill will compensate but lit tle for worthless cards. Heckling penalty bids are often overrated. They are spectacular and profitable when they work, but they go wrong most of the time. If you should happen to read these lines, Frances, permit a word of advice. Judge the price you pay for a bid as shrewdly as you'd judge the price of a gown, a car or a cabbage. No matter what your stakes, play to win and look at penalties as you would at tabasco sauce — spicy sea soning when moderately used, but disastrous when taken in large doses. 52 The Chicagoan LU XURY wit~h ECONOMY C5^ rarksnore tlOTEL 55 th Street- at the Lake Phone Plaza 3100 IIVE, and in the living, enjoy every J moment to the utmost.

WASHINGTON Franklin 9801 • 1215 E. 63rd STREET Fairfax 8822 WHERE FLOWERS BLOOM NEXT DOOR TO GLACIERS; THE OCEAN TER MINUS OF THE ALASKA RAILROAD THAT OLD SPELL Totems and Flowers the Yukon — Midnight Suns By Lucia Lewis THERE has always been a ques tion in my mind as to whether the hordes of '98 were rushing to Alaska for gold or just dashing away from Chicago, New York and St. Louis temperatures. Even if the territory were as arctic as many peo ple think it is, it would lure me on the humid summer days which bear down upon us in July and August. But, knowing that the Alaskan sum mer is sunny, flower-scented, bliss fully cool but never cold, that the cold cash necessary won't freeze the most miserly heart, and that a couple of weeks will do the Rush country in leisurely comfort, the lure becomes tripled — in fact quite irresistible. In a bracing atmosphere about as cool as San Francisco's summer the Alaskan steamers of Canadian Pacific wind up the astounding Inside Pas sage past crashing glaciers and ice bergs shimmering in the distance to ports where flowers and vegetation riot in tropical luxuriance. Every thing is huge in Alaska. Even the pansies and dahlias push rapidly to extraordinary circumferences, as though they were rushing to catch up with five hundred thousand ton bergs which crack oil the glaciers like peb bles, at the toot of approaching steamers. Along the fjord in Wrangell Narrows the sound of crashing bergs roars like some super natural foundry and farther on past Taku Glacier human insouciance curls up before the immensity of the thing. (But the steamer's route is safely far away from the disastrous crash of bergs.) Taku is worth the whole trip in itself. It is the only place in the world where a dead and a live glacier can be compared — the dead glacier on the left has barely moved a mile and a half in two hundred years. On the other side the live glacier flashes eighty miles long. Fairylikc is the only word for its shimmering spires ;md battlements as they soften in the sun and drop immense jewels of bergs into the water. It is almost a relief to turn from glaciers to the pathetic remnants of the roaring days of 1898. At Daw son we ride in effete luxury on wheeled dogsleds in a sedate little town where saloons once blazed along the streets and 3 5,000 dogs yapped and snarled their way to and from the gold fields. Juneau, the capital, is now the important Alaskan city, beautiful under a blanket of summer flowers at the foot of its towering mountain. It's dawgone civi'.ized. But farther up, the steamer makes connections with the White Pass and Yukon trains which climb into wildernesses which seem to dwarf the chugging little cars of men. And yet this is the same route followed by lone miners on that mad terrible hunt which followed Siwash George's shout of "Gold!" north of the Indian River in '97. Another steamer climbs to Dawson, again an amazing trip with shore ca bles straining us up Five Finger Rap ids. The short side trip to Lake Atlin on the way up from White Pass should never be omitted. Moun tains roll away into the sky from a spectacular mirror lake, clear as pol ished glass, utterly quiet in its ageless calm. The traces of ancient Eskimo or Indian culture are even more remark able than the flimsy remains of the gold-rushers. Dr. Hrdlicka of the Smithsonian Institute says that these dim tribes reached a "degree of in dustrial differentiation and art so high that we have nothing to compare with them in America except among the more highly developed tribes of the northwest coast and those of Mexico, Yucatan and Peru." Some people advance the theory that these Eski- moes were part of the great race which disappeared in the Pacific and are distantly related to the mysterious in habitants of Easter Island whose strange statues still baffle scientists. The Chicagoan GREAT THE VERANDA OF MANY GLACIERS HOTEL RIGHT OVER THE WATERS OF SWIFT CURRENT LAKE ALICE-THROUGH-THE TUNNEL A Come Hither Land THE loop and the boulevards, screaming conventions and "Of Thee I Sing, Baby" fit together like pieces in a picture puzzle. But, two days out on the Empire Builder, in the exalted fragrance of moun tains and pine one gets sheepish about that "Baby." It doesn't seem pretentious at all to doff the head and murmur a simple "Of Thee I Sing." The other world has dropped below the horizon and before us lies a strange, exciting, uplifted country. The trail begins with a scenic drive from Glacier Park Station to Many Glaciers Hotel, luxurious at the foot of primitive woods, glaciers and waterfalls. From here the true beauty of Glacier is discoverable only to those who shed the efficiency of civilization. A horseback trail as cends to the North Country from the hotel, plunging into a thick forest redolent of spruce and Alpine fir, past Ptarmigan Lake to the entrance of the magic tunnel. Behind are the mountains and lakes of the Many Glacier region. The dim specks to the west and far below are other rid ers c'imbing past the rapids to Ice berg Lake, under the cliffs of Pin nacle Wall, and back at evening to the porches of the hotel. But through the two hundred foot tun nel ahead, lies the even greater maj esty of the whole North Country, a country that calls one back again and again no matter how many times it has been visited. Amazing peaks rise on every side, far below a chain of lakes is set in green firs, the valley drops away step by step until the waters wind off to Canada. The trail down this hidden valley is breath-taking but the guides and horses are so accustomed to it and it has been laid out so skillfully that the tenderfoot makes it safely, though not without a delicious shiver which he can talk about later. The goal is the Crossley Lake Camp, completely secluded by miles of winding trail from the nearest automobile road and railroad line. Accommodations are good dude ranch style — simple and unpretentious but thoroughly good. One stows away gigantic quantities of food without shame and drops into bed like a bou'der plunging into a mountain stream. 1 here are count less lakes to explore and fish. The country is so untouched that each year finds guides discovering abso lutely virgin lakes and forests. Good trails lead to the high spots for those sweeping vistas of mountain region with snow patches and glaciers glist ening everywhere like enchanted mir rors. Chipmunks and whistling mar mots run fearlessly through the toss ing flowers and tired souls just sit and watch all day, whi'e others roam the trails to return exuberantly tired at night and sit around the campfire to listen to the tall tales of the drawling guides. Even the tallest ones seem credible here. For this is tall coun try, an idyll of unspoiled beauty with out a single marring note. The only thing to remind you that you actually are still part of this twentieth century is the tenuous telephone wire from the camp back over the mountains. But you look at it idly and think of what it leads back to not at all. — Mountain Canary. THE HOSTESS (Begin on page 43) he will worship you if you make it easy for him to nibble off schedule.

It's worn over a rustly white taffeta slip to complete one of the most glamorous things I've seen this season. L)f course you know that this is the biggest knit- one-purl-two year since the war, but the results are decidedly different from the shapeless sweaters and bulky helmets that left the needles in those days. Knitted and crocheted dresses, suits, bathing suits, beach pajamas slink about in town and country everywhere one goes. The Bradley people do some of the smartest things with a weave known as bramble bou- cle, and with a lot of lacy openwork affairs that ought to be terribly com fortable in summer. Their three piece suits are master pieces. They range all the way from conservative dark skirts and light weight sweaters with the cardigan coat — all of them beautifully fash ioned so that they will look distin guished in any sports and weather — to gay new combinations of colors and styles. There's a dashing suit by Tao Tai with its heavy white skirt topped by a lacy round-necked shirt and an amusing short coat in a bril liant red striped at wide intervals in fine white linens. The same sort of coat is shown in white with short lapels to be worn with the red knit ted slacks which Tao Tai sponsored on the Riviera. The thin shirts or sweaters under these coats are reve lations to the knitwear neophyte. They are shaped cleverly to give just that same snug, high-waisted and raised bosom effect that our best eve ning bib-and-tucker creates. The slacks are fun, with their lacings at the hips and tight cuffs. Bradley does other interesting nau tical suits with wide cuffs on the slacks too and little jackets which Who Said Depression?

Picking the Wedlock Under a Spotlight (Begin on page 37) others, simple acts of cruelty or desertion were charged and evidence offered to sub stantiate the charges. Yet in each of the cases the name of the lawyer ap peared in the paper as representing the complainant or defendant as the case might be. If the mere formal allegations required by law were the basis of the charges, none of the cases would appear in the papers. The lawyers involved would not have their names mentioned in those in stances. What then is the conclu sion? The obvious one, that the facts are distorted in order to get the publicity. If clients object to publicity, and sometimes they do, the lawyer tells them that once a document is filed, it is public property. Other times, the lawyer tells them it is better to have favorable publicity by being friendly and yielding than to antag onize the press. Sometimes, a lawyer genuinely tries to protect a client from publicity and only succeeds in arousing the enmity of the type of reporter that is all too common today. A number of years ago, when for the first time since my early reporter days, I was obliged to go to the press room in the County Building in Chi cago, I was amazed to see, pasted on the wall, an enlarged photograph of a prominent lawyer with his hat cov ering the face of his client in an at tempt to prevent recognition. The handwritten caption over the picture was this: "How Attorney XYZ (men tioning the lawyer's name) Co- operates with the Press." When I asked a young reporter what that meant, he answered vehemently, "That is on the blacklist." And all because the lawyer was being faithful to his client instead of grasp ing an opportunity to get his name and picture in the paper. Another mistake these young reporters make is in ac cepting loans and gratuities around Christmas time from publicity seeking lawyers. I know it for a fact that one lawyer in Chicago entertains cer tain reporters at his home at least once a week, with the result that his name frequently appears in cases in which scandal is the theme, either in divorce or breach of promise cases. This lawyer once took a hurried trip abroad when he was able to book pas sage on the same boat with a prom inent man, and let the story out that they were going together to get a divorce from the prominent man's wife in Paris. The fact that the prominent man denied the story made no difference to the conniving lawyer. His name was already identified with that of an important person. With out the help of a subsidized reporter this could not have happened. The parties are still married to each other. Should the name of this lawyer or one of his type be inadvertently omitted from the story he usually burns up the wires until a correction is promised in a subsequent edition. I could never make out whether it was vanity or cupidity that goads these lawyers into seeking publicity for themselves. Likewise I could never understand the attitude of the bar association, in permitting what must be apparent to them as a breach of professional ethics. I remember the night of the Wilson-Hughes elec tion. I was on the desk and as can be imagined, the situation was tense, waiting for word from the west coast which in all probability would decide the contest. The lawyer who went to Europe on his imagined mission of severance, 'phoned to ask why his name was left out of a story he had 'phoned in that afternoon. I told him, because we didn't have space enough for his name and that of the winner of the presidential election too. In our complex modern civilization divorce is undoubtedly as essential an institution as marriage itself. It is, like other elements of life, a natural readjustment. Just why it should be so publicized, I cannot quite make out, unless there is a natural tendency to revel in the misfortunes of others. But it cannot serve any good purpose. Often children are seriously harmed by the publicity. The fact that not one divorce in a thousand, except in the case of prominent people, would make a news story, shows con clusively that without the manufac tured story, such as those described here, or without the inclusion of the lawyer's name in divorce stories, the reporter would have to develop the all important nose for news an<» be come a real newspaper man.

Pure bred hounds, most of them imports from Ireland, are used by the thousands at the various tracks in this country, where the game has be come known as the "Sport of Queens." Large, bony, fast as a streak of light, these beautiful ani mals run after the electrically pro pelled lure as if their whole heart was in it, as, of course, it is. Indicative of the popularity of this sport with the masses, are the figures from London, England, where grey hound racing caught the popular fancy a few years ago. The Sporting Review, weekly sports publication of London, tells us that more than 18,- 000,000 persons clicked the turnstiles at English dog tracks during 1931. English charities were enriched by 750,000 pounds sterling, about two and a half million dollars. This year the fund probably will be diverted from that purpose and used as a sepa rate fund for the uplifting of sports in general. -At the Thornton greyhound track, located across the street from the Washington Park race course in Chicago, are 450 grey hounds now in training. Eighty of these race nightly, except Sunday, in a series of ten races. The pari-mu- tuel form of betting identical with the system in use at the horse tracks, is in effect on the hounds. Of these 450 dogs, about ten per cent are imported from Ireland, whi'e nearly 40 per cent are from imported sires. The majority are bred and raised on the prairies of Oklahoma and Nebraska, although several good strains come from Florida, because of the fine training conditions of those states. Each year the Waterloo cup is competed for, usually in Kansas or Nebraska. This race is the coursing classic of this country, and finds hun dreds of the best bred yearlings rac ing. The test is an elimination af fair, the dogs being released in pairs after live jack rabbits, the first to make the kill remaining in the com petition. For the last five years the Waterloo winner has fea tured the nighty racing at the Thornton track. This summer the hounds are racing at Bayside, L. I., Belmont, Calif., Tulsa, Okla., and just across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas, and near St. Louis. Butte, Montana, will open in July, and the Thornton track in Chicago will re main open until late in the fall. The popularity of greyhound rac ing is best attested by the recent dis patch from San Francisco, which stated that the baseball clubs there had quit p'ayinp; night ball, as the crowds were all attending the Bel mont dog races. Several tracks have operated in and around Chicago, but the Thornton track, the first to introduce this fas cinating sport to Chicagoans. is the only one to remain in operation. T. Homer Ellis, former president of the Cadillac-La Salle distributors organ ization of Cook County, a resident of Chicago Heights, is president of the Thornton Coursing Club, which sponsors racing at the south side track.
