From such a beginning John Norton's art committee (Edgar Miller is shown at left) proceeded to the triumph of the month, the glory of architecture and the spectacular rout of that oV dabil Depression. C14ICAGOAN TAST night the Great White Father spoke to the agriculturists and ' his words were fair. Today the market was down the usual two to seven points under leadership of the farm implement issues. Election day is yet far off and there is to be more speaking. Tonight is not, if we may say so, an ideal occasion upon which to compose a gay editorial page for a magazine devoted to the lighter, brighter aspects of human existence. Even the Daily J^lews, wherein every Knox a boost for the administration, had quite a time finding a bright side to look on in its evening edition. We always turn to the Daily K[ews editorial page on an occasion like this. It makes our own job seem so much easier to do. Nevertheless, it is not a merry evening. The lighter, brighter aspects of human existence do not clamor for celebration. Fortu nately, the staff had them pretty well cared for before the President went West and their depositions await you, undimmed, on subsequent pages. If we have saddened you, read The Oratorical Sweepsta\es and forgive us. \T7TTH publication of the above named article in the present num ber, Mr. Milton S. Mayer abandons politics to the politicians and hones his potent lance for other uses. We know that you have enjoyed his rakish articles on the subject. We have, and so have the editors of Vanity Fair, The Forum and other discriminating pub lications to whose columns his services have been summoned in the year's wildest wooing of a literary discovery. And so has Mr. Mayer, a fact of utmost significance to young writers daunted by rejection slips and to old writers dismayed by shrinkage of their markets. Mr. Mayer will commence, in the November issue, a sequence of articles devoted to the Century of Progress Exposition. The tall, dark young man you are likely to find prowling around the lakefront at any hour of the day or night during the next several months will be the World's Fair editor of The Chicagoan in search of para graphs. The taller and likewise dark young man with him will be Mr. A. George Miller, whose camera compositions have enhanced many past issues and this one. It will be the objective of these men to present the tremendous story of the Exposition in all of its all but incredible glory and in whatever other aspects it may be discovered to possess. We regard this assignment as the most important one we have ever announced. The story of the Exposition is too big and too vital to be disposed of in the routine manner of treatment it has thus far received at the hands of the hasty press. We have chosen Mr. Mayer to write the story because his is the clearest writing eye and the keenest reportorial ear1 in these parts. We have chosen Mr. Miller to illustrate the story because his is the shrewdest camera, his the finest lens sense, it has been our pleasure to encounter. In these hands the story of the Century of Progress Exposition is safe. We respect fully commend it to your attention. TX7E were a little alarmed by the announcement that Miss Virginia Skinkle of Astor Street had become engaged to marry Mr. Sydney Heyworth Heap of Mellington Hall, Church Stoke, Mont gomeryshire. Lest you were, too, we hasten to inform you that Urban Phenomena will not vanish from these pages nor shall another editor essay its composition. 'Though it be typed on the high seas or British soil, and 'though its characters on occasion stride the salons of May- fair, or the banks of the Seine, Urban Phenomena will continue to arrive at the printer's, Miss Skinkle assures us, at precisely ten minutes past press time and two hours in advance of the editorial page copy. Our blessing, therefore, is given. ' I 4HE Latin Quarter Fete was something more than an occasion. ¦*¦ The architects are by no means the first to have linked revelry and relief in the unholy bonds of depression, but they made it a happy union. Prodigality throve in sharp contrast to the languishing econ omy unsuccessfully exploited so many times in kindred endeavors by no less earnest groups. The architects displayed superior technique. They dared to be lavish. No bombs were hurled and no guests were kidnapped for ransom. A wow of a time was had by all and the profits were handsome. The example is priceless in a jittery season. TT7E do not feel as badly as we suspect we should about the fail' * * ure of Mr. Grimm's ball players to win a majority of seven games from Mr. McCarthy's sluggers. Mr. Grimm did pretty well under the circumstances. He came late into power and won a despaired of pennant. It was too much to ask that he win another over night. It wasn't in the cards. It wasn't the year for it. Next year is. One by one, the gods of the lakefront stack up guarantees for 1933. We can think offhand of no niftier blow-off for the Expo sition than a World Series with Chicago on the big end of the box score. We feel confident that Mr. Grimm will arrange it. A FEW weeks ago we went to some pains in this department to -**- extoll the merits of Mr. Ashton Stevens' A Column or Less in the Herald- Examiner. The column disappeared almost immediately. A little later on Mr. Boyden had occasion in his department to ap praise the various drama critics of the local press and he, too, paid tribute to Mr. Stevens' nimble quill. The result appears to have been identical. We seem to have deprived the Town of its youngest col umnist, its oldest drama critic and its bravest commentator and we are desolated. Our course, however, seems plainly indicated. Evi dently we need but to praise that which we do not like to get rid of it. Accordingly, we lose not another minute in declaring that West- brook Pegler is our favorite sports reporter, that Paul Leach is the greatest Washington correspondent in the world and that we simply couldn't survive without our daily dose of Walter Winchell. We have other idols, but the smashing of these will suffice for this month. If the plan is successful we will present Mr. Boyden's candidates in our next number. AS announced in our previous number, Miss Susan Wilbur resumes - in this issue her delightfully impersonal direction of the reading habits of the customers. A number of important books have come from the presses during Miss Wilbur's absence and more impend. These will be faithfully noted in that suavely balanced manner that is Miss Wilbur's especial charm and the long winter evenings should hold no terrors for the literate. The fireside contingent thus adequately served, we have but now concluded a conference with the cinema editor, an idle fellow, and he has consented to resume in the November number his delibera tions upon the Hollywood importations. In another year we would not care to mention this, the movies being what they've been, but at this period in the progress of the art and the decline of the per capita allowance for entertainment the matter may be mentioned in polite company. ON another page Mr. Boyden reveals a number of good reasons for witnessing a performance of Of Thee I Sing. On still another page Mr. Pollak adds to this number. We endorse the find ings of both gentlemen and append the suggestion that you see the show before November 8. If the election goes the wrong way you will never be able to see anything funny about Washington again. If it goes the other way, of course, Of Thee I Sing will turn out to be the Uncle Tom's Cabin of the future and run forever. A iND so endeth a dull evening, a dull page and a peculiarly dull "- month. Highlights indicated by pencilled notations in the tidy numbered squares on our wall calendar, a gift of the Pennsylvania railroad, tell a dull story. One pertains to the wire-tapping party staged early in the month by representatives of the Secret Six and the District Attorney. Another reminds of the Harlow hullabaloo and a third of Mr. Capone's appeal for release from custody. Sev eral combine to detail the fall of the house of Insull and the remainder bear upon equally mournful matters. Of such stuff was September spun in the year of our Lord 1932. We go to press with our fingers crossed and a fervent hope that Mr. Hoover was mistaken when he argued that things could be worse. N, OW that the season is beginning the "Debutante Shop" is once more the head quarters of the smartest De butantes in town. They come dashing in between Service Club rehearsals finding immediate at tention and intelligent suggestion. There is always a member of the Junior League at the desk ready to help them decide be tween the many lovely clothes presented. Here are three very special new fashions that are finding favor with the current crop.

Immediately everyone says, "Oh, one would, would he?" Well, one might, and he'd be right, because might is right. Anyway, our president, current though he may be, does know what this country needs. He has said as much, but he has said too much. He thinks this country has two needs. A fortnight ago Mr. Hoover sent a congrat ulatory letter to Joe Weber and Lew Fields. They were celebrating the jubilee anniversary (no, that's only the fiftieth) of their appear ance in vaudeville. Part of the golden message read, "What this country needs is a good new joke," or something close to that. We thought that was rather rubbing it in to the boys. And that same week, in The Saturday Re view;, Christopher Morley revealed another suggestion of the president's, made in a pri vate conversation: "Perhaps what this country needs is a great poem." And he recalled, but didn't recite (and you can bet that everybody was mighty glad about that) Kipling's Reces sional. Maybe Dorothy Parker could be happy for a few minutes and combine the two into a grand joke-poem. Maybe that's what this country needs. And some economists assert that what this country needs is a new industry, but they can't for the life of them think of any. Other economists feel certain that, while this country may need a new industry, as long as there doesn't seem to be any coming around the corner, a revival of an old industry might help a lot. And you know what! Oh, well, probably this country will get something new next month. Educated Politics ¥ I "*0 our list of things for which we are thankful (though it's weeks too early for that sort of thing, we do like to be ready) should be added one more item: "Situation Wanted — Male: Responsible position in what is usually called Politics, by man of education and good breeding." It seems that politics, as depicted by front page cartoonists, has never held much charm for young men of education and good breeding until recently. It's not strange, of course, and there is no need of going into pros and cons of its not being strange. But now we have a couple of men of what we like to call our generation who are seeking situations in politics. James Simpson, Jr., has recently won the recount and a Congressional nomination (as predicted to us, but not by us, some time ago by one of the recounters). He's an example o 11 duct e d by Donald Plan of what we think politics needs. Duke ("Robert Jerome") Dunne is the other part of the new item for our Thankful List. He's in his early thirties and he has been practicing law here in town for about twelve years. He was graduated from Mich igan and from Northwestern Law. At Mich igan he was on the basketball and track teams and was, too, one of the Wolverines' football greats. He coached football at Northwestern and at Harvard, and he was a member of the U. S. Olympic team in 1920. He's a captain in the I. N. G. and a member of the Chicago Bar Association; and that group endorsed him as a candidate for Municipal Court Judge in the 1932 primaries in which he was nominated. And he ought to know the ropes, because his father is a former governor of Illinois and mayor of Chicago. And maybe what this country needs is more bright young men in politics. <Dr. Sliot Said HPHE installation of the University of Chi- cago's swell new carillon evokes a story about the late President Eliot of Harvard, which, in turn, evokes another story. As a matter of fact, both stories hinge on Dr. Eliot's deafness during his advanced years. "guess who who is?" N T Dr. Eliot was the guest of President Far- rand of Cornell one fine afternoon, and Cor nell's new carillon was being played in no uncertain tones. It was very impressive music and could be heard far above, as well as up and down, Cayuga's waters. As Dr. Farrand and Dr. Eliot strolled the campus, the host turned to his guest and said: "Don't you think the music from the new carillon is beautiful, Dr. Eliot?" "What was that you said?" hollered Dr. Eliot. "I said, don't you think the carillon is play ing beautifully?" hollered Dr. Farrand. "Hey?" yelled Dr. Eliot. "I said, isn't the carillon lovely?" roared Dr. Farrand. "I'm sorry, I can't hear you," screamed Dr. Eliot; "those damn bells are making too much noise." That's the end of that story. Being told, it recalled to some sinner another one that deals with Dr. Eliot, his deafness, and a university — but not Cornell. The great educator was sitting in a street car one day, and a Salvation Army lass came up to him and said: "My dear sir, are you a Christian?" "Hell, no!" replied Dr. Eliot. The S. A. lass, abashed, sat down on the other side of the car. A few minutes later Dr. Eliot turned to her and said : "What was that you said before, young lady?" "I said, 'Are you a Christian?' " she replied. "Oh," said Dr. Eliot. "I beg your pardon. I thought you said, 'Are you from Princeton?' " Mutiny HpHE Auditorium theatre, we understand, -*¦ is being made decent by Holabird and Root, because, after three years of being in the dark, which is ever so much better than being in the red, that historic and perhaps too large old house is again to shelter theatrical and musical bookings. In fact, starting in November there will be a great deal of activ ity around the old place and it will continue through the World's Fair, as we can't help but call the Century of Progress. We think it will be quite fine to have a part, at least, of the Auditorium's former glory return. And that former glory made us think of one time when Pinafore was playing there. Several young men in residence at the time at the University of Chicago sought employment in the chorus of the operetta. They were hired at the grand sum of one dollar the per formance. The jobs were great. The boys October, 1932 13 didn't have any lines and they didn't have to sing; they were just sailors in the background. Everything coasted along pleasantly for a week. They received their nightly dollars and had fun. Then the stage manager had an idea. He decided that, after a certain song, the sailors must wave their hats and give a long cheer or two. Upon that order, the boys hit for a raise in salary. They demanded, in addition to the nightly dollar, one dollar per wave and one dollar per cheer. The manager refused, so there was mutiny on the good ship Pinafore and from then on the boys played bridge dur ing the evening. Our 'Past A GHOST walked right into our office the "^^ other day and sat on the edge of our desk, and read a letter to us. The letter was from Miss Hy Dee Small of Kansas City (Mo.). It recalled to our attention a contest of a sort that went on for some time several years ago. You may barely remember it; it was rather involved, something about the number of words there are that end in — cion. It seems that Miss Small, who says she always buys our journal when she is in Chi cago, wanted to find the name of a certain apartment hotel. She was looking through a copy of The Chicagoan for April, 1930, for the advertisement, and while thumbing the pages, discovered the — cion department and a letter therein which said that there were only three words with that particular suffix. Well, that started an argument between Miss Small and somebody else, and she discovered that there are five words ending in — cion; viz., scion, coercion, suspicion, epinicion and inter- necion. And she wanted to let us know about it. Miss Small enclosed a little poem, too, using those five words as a rime-scheme. And while the verse is what might be called an internecine attack on our mother-tongue, it is quite nice, and really, only lack of space (and the edi torial barrier: We do not use verse) restrains us from printing it. But it made us awfully happy to know that our magazine is not only read, but also reread. Efficiency /^\NE of our deputies brings in the report, ^^ and there is no reason why we should doubt it, that a local business man, one in some executive capacity, has been eating his lunch in his office almost every day this summer. That alone isn't too unusual, we believe, but this gentleman goes a bit farther than that. At luncheon time his secretary puts on an apron, covers his desk with a very nice linen table cloth, sets the table for two, brews tea or pulls bottles of milk out of the office water- cooler and fixes lunch; sometimes even prepares simple dishes on a small electric grill. Then she sits down and the meal begins. Afterward the tableware is washed, dried and put away. It's all very pleasant and decidedly economical. And the idea might be carried out even farther. Since so many important business deals are closed across luncheon tables now adays, we think the executive of this story might break down sales resistance by having the boys in for lunch. New Home A STARR BESTS are moving back to -^~*-* where they used to be over a decade ago, or almost to the old location. By the end of the month the Harris and Lewis Tweeds, the homespuns, cheviots, herringbones and Glen Urquhart plaids, the Welch Margetson, Virgoe Middleton, Atkinson's Royal Irish pop lin neckware, Argyll plaids and Allen Solly hose, the English bench-made shoes, the Hill- house hats, the pipes and sporting prints, etch' ings, collections of silhouettes and ironstone china — all will have been moved from Ran dolph and Wabash to the new three story building at 11 to 15 North Wabash. For three decades Best's have been outfitters to men, young men and children of Chicago and the north shore. Mr. A. Starr Best and a brother, sons of Albert Best, founder of Best & Company of New York, established the store in 1901. And always carrying the 'best of imported and domestic clothing and acces sories, the shop grew to the fine men's store it is today. Wrth the retirement of Mr. Best a few years ago, Mr. Alvin H. Bastien became presi dent and general manager. His staff is made up of the best clothing men in Town, Messrs. Ogilvie, Dockstader, Gordon, Duncan and Davis. And they'll be at home November 1. Qhange A/TR- RICHARDSON of the Chicago Sur- face Lines has brought out a new transfer. At least his signature is on the back of it. It's larger than the old one, six inches by two and one-quarter, and looks as though it ought to be much simpler to under stand. It hasn't any of the old squares, nor names of lines and cross-lines. There's a map of Chicago on the top-side, squared off into zones by some measurement or other, and a clock at one end. Instead of having two colors a day, one for east-west lines and one for north-south, as the old transfers had, there is now only one a day. You receive a transfer and if, upon taking another street car, you want another, you don't get it; the conductor just punches the one you have. The punched hole in the clock indicates the time you leave the zone in which the transfer was issued. And the printing on the back is large enough to read, so you can find out about it all if you want to. There are the usual penalties for fraudulent use. They're listed on the back, too but it seems that you have to look up a certain Unification Ordinance passed November 13, 1913, to understand them. They're pretty nice transfers, though. £vergreen Hedgerows "^T O one can ever say that the Congress ¦^•^ flops on the Town. In fact, probably no one would ever think of saying that. But we thought of something like that while we were easing through a maze of Rooseveltonians in the Congress lobby on our way to a pre view of the new Joseph Urban Room that used to be the Balloon Room. And that's a very grand sort of place. The formal garden motif is carried out to meticu lous detail. The north and south walls, the latter broken only by the orchestra shell, give the garden idea. They are glass paneled, on which have been painted long, dignified, im pressive avenues of evergreen hedges. At sec tional divisions the garden scenes are animated by box hedges of what appears to be real ever green that jut out into the room some four feet. There is a hint of a scent of evergreen, too. The east and west walls are mirrored panels. The glass panels were painted in the Urban studios in New York and shipped here. And DEEP SEA DIVER: "MIGAWD! FISH AGAIN?!!" 14 The Chicagoan "cathedral 8000." none was broken, cracked or scratched. There is much detail in the panel work, fine pen lines and minute dabs of paint may be ob served if you happen to be sitting on the wall seats beneath them. Behind the panels are colored lights, amber, red, blue, that are constantly changing in shade and combinations, filling the room with the various effects of early morn, sunrise, middle- morn, high noon, mid-afternoon, sunset, dusk, twilight, moonlight, midnight and probably a few other periods of the complete day. Above, the effect of glass through which colored lights shine is given by muslin having been stretched taut across wires. On the tables are indirect lights, small mush room-shaped lamps done in dull silver that cast their light on the linen and tableware, and over which one can see others of his party without having to fight the glare of the usual table lamp. They were designed especially to compliment feminine guests. Throughout, the panelled walls, tables, chairs, carpeting — everything — is done in shades of rich green, silver and tan. And it is nicely air-conditioned, too. Vincent Lopez brought his orchestra here from the St. Regis for the opening; he'll be around for a while, which is an awfully good start toward making the Joseph Urban Room the world's most svelte and genteel, as well as most beautiful, supper room. Imperial Russian Treasures TAST February ever so many Chicagoans ¦were fortunate enough to be able to view the extraordinary exhibit of Imperial Russian art treasures held at Marshall Field &? Com pany's ninth floor galleries. Over fifty thou sand people attended, we learned, and were thrilled by the rare sight of the magnificence of the Romanoffs, never before uncovered to the public gaze. We were, too. So great was the response that Field's decided to hold the show again, and the collection is now on dis play where it was last winter. But it'll be over about the middle of the month. Hundreds of items never shown before have been brought to Chicago. Among them are several articles from the Crown Jewel Col lection, such as the famous diamond and lapis Easter Egg presented by Czar Nicholai II to his wife, Alexandra Feodorovna, on Easter morning 1912. It is the size of an ostrich egg, and is made of the finest lapis with gold mountings. The top has a rectangular flat diamond which has engraved on its surface the initials "AF" under a crown and the date 1912. Inside the egg, which opens up, is the double-headed Russian Imperial Eagle, set with over two thousand diamonds and mounted on a lapis lazuli base. On the breast of the eagle under the crown is a miniature of Czarovitch Alexis, the crown prince, in a sailor suit. This miniature is most unusual in that it shows both front and back view of the boy so that he appears life-like beneath the surface of a thick crystal. This jewel was made and signed by the Court Jeweler, Faberge, who spent three years making the intricate little gift. Another unusual object from the Crown Jewel Collection is the pearl and emerald pen of Grand Duke George Alexandrovitch, a younger brother of Nicholai II. This pen is in the form of a graceful quill, the surface of which is set with one hundred emeralds and over two thousand pearls. This exhibit is the first important collection of the Czar's treasures to come out of Russia since the Revolution. It is made possible through the daring and enter prise of Dr. Armand Hammer and his brother, Mr. Victor J. Hammer, of New York City, who went to Russia on business shortly after the revolution and spent several years there collecting these treasures. Aside from the jeweled objects of art which are now on display and which in themselves constitute an endless source of wonderment, the striking part of the exhibit is a large col lection of remarkable brocades and fabrics, vestments from Russian Imperial Palaces in the form of copes and chasubles. These fab rics and brocades are brilliant with genuine gold and silver threads. The china, glassware and porcelain on display, with very few excep tions, was made in the Royal Imperial Porce lain Factory at St. Petersburg. This factory was founded by Empress Elizabeth I, daugh ter of Peter the Great, and greatly enlarged by Catherine the Great. During its existence of over 180 years the establishment made porcelain exclusively for the Russian Royal Family by order of the Czar, and never were any of its products offered for sale. The whole exhibit is a rather glorious thing, something that was Russia, and now look at the place. And it's really something to see. In the Russian Manner F TP Sheridan Road and Diversey way *"^ Colonel Yaschenka has done a handsome job of remodeling his colorful Maisonette Russe. He has had one side torn away and there he has created a gay winter terrace, a complete and faithful replica of a house in his native Russia. It is rich with woodcarv- ings and handiwork of Russian artisans. Much of the carving was done in Russia, the rest done here by Russian expatriates. Gay, bright colors have been splashed here and there; reds, yellows, blues, all so dear to Russian hearts. Carved arches and spiraled pillars, the same inside as without, run around the winter ter race, and inside two large arches and one sup porting pillar separate it slightly from the rest of the room. On one side is the stage and nearby, in a corner, the stand for the lively Gipsy orches tra. The Colonel has also imported two really extraordinary dancers, Vania Orlik, who thrills the guests with his Russian dances, and Frau- lein Lolik, who does her Gypsy routine. And because of its color, atmosphere, settings, en tertainment and excellent cuisine, Maisonette Russe, it seems, ought to continue to be one of the night harbors to tab and take in. October, 1932 1* They're at the Post The Democratic entry, with F. Roosevelt and J. Garner up, is as excited as a filly facing the barrier for its maiden start, but as confident as a 7-10 favorite. Can make every post a winning one; workouts have been great; has been tipped plenty and is overdue for brack ets; dopes to bring home the apricots. The Republican entry, with H. Hoover and C. Curtis riding, comes from a winning barn; scored last time out to make it three in a row, but has been very inconsistent of late; Colonel Knox is still stringing with this one; recent workouts disappointing and may not like heavy going. ::::lll!: / C / J 4> - These amusing little caricature busts of the four mot* active participants in the Presidential Sweepstakes wert done by Cornelius C.

George Miller The Oratorical Sweepstakes You, Too, Can Be a Political Expert By Milton S . Mayer IN any otherwise respectable gathering of five or more adult Americans between now and Nov. 8 you will find at least one per son prepared — nay, determined — to discuss the fine points of the Republican chances in What Cheer, Iowa, in North Dakota, and in the Virgin Islands. The open season for political experts is on. There was a time when a citizen who did not want to hear what Mr. Bryan said about Mr. Roosevelt and what Mr. Roosevelt said about Mr. Bryan could keep away from polit ical meetings, avoid the newspapers and maga zines, and refuse to talk to anyone. Such a citizen was known as a bad American or an unpatriotic member of the community. But at least he enjoyed his peace of mind during the month of October of every fourth year. The radio has done away with all that; this insidious instrument has invaded the sanctity of every American home. The only way to escape becoming a political authority today is to shoot yourself, a course which has been re sorted to by some of our best minds. It is not enough that you vote for Hoover or Roose velt or Thomas or Foster or that you don't vote at all; you must defend your attitude on every street corner, on every suburban train, and to every elevator man. It is an American tradition that no one should know anything about politics and that everyone should talk about politics. In the Old Countries the situation is not the reverse, as might be suspected, because while everyone knows everything about politics, it is not true that no one talks about it. On the whole, the kind of palaver that flourishes so universally just before an election is more beneficial than not, I think. Out of the welter of drawing- room, lunch-counter and pool hall conversa tions there occasionally pops up an idea. Very, very occasionally, it is true, but an occasional idea is not to be scorned in these barren times. In October there are no longer two sides to any question; there are as many sides as there are citizens. Thus, in stead of an argument that it is right or wrong to pay the bonus at this time, it is a fair bet that you will discover as many schools of thought in this matter as there are individuals present. You will hear remarks about our un- honored heroes and about the bums who never amounted to anything before they went into the army and will never amount to anything out of it, about the high wages paid in the American army compared with other armies, and about the low wages paid in the Amer ican army compared with other armies, about the insanity of Hoover, the firmness of Hoover, the insidious lobbies and the forgotten defend ers of the nation. As regards the depression, one man blames it on Hoover and absolves Coolidge. the next blames it on Coolidge and absolves Hoover, the next blames it on Wilson, the next on Jeff Davis, and the next on Edgar A. Guest. Prohibition is attacked or defended not on cardinal principles but on the price of drinks, the opinion of a guy who just blew in from Spokane and says things are terrible there, Al Capone's silk underwear, or the quality of Finnegan's gin. The question addresses itself to every social being: shall I enter into heated disputes on Manchukuo, domestic allotment, and the Que bec plan, or shall I keep my trap shut and have people nudge each other when they pass me on the street and say, "That's the jackass who hasn't got a thing to say on the tariff?" As a matter of self-defense I think it behooves every diner-out and every commuter to force his opinions on his fellow wayfarer before the fellow-wayfarer forces his opinions on him. There is always the white hope that you will be able to get away about the time your com panion says, "Now, if you ask me ." Be sides, it is more blessed to talk than to listen. Most of the talking, and by no means the best, is done by the candidates. If the candi dates knew what they were talking about, there would be very little left for the voters to say, but candidates seem to be forbidden by some inner voice to say anything arbitrary. The candidate who is liable to say something arbi trary is kept in the cellar, and there are those who, thinking of Curtis and Garner, approve of this procedure. So the field is left open to such orators as Secretary of the Treasury Ogden Mills, candidate for reelection to the cabinet. When Mr. Mills gets done explain ing the Republican platform, there is plenty to talk about; the drys will be certain that Mr. Mills is talking dry and the wets will be sure that he is talking wet. Or take Mr. Roosevelt, of the opposition. When Mr. Roosevelt gets done talking about farm relief, it is clear to the Democrats that he has solved tbe ploughboy's problems and it is just as clear to the Republicans that he is talking riddles, doesn't know what he is talking about, and has stolen his ideas from Mr. Hoover. That leaves the public plenty of latitude for discussion. For the man who loves his pipe and his book and an evening in front of the blazing grate, the radio has always been a curse. The rapidly increasing group of radio- haters has a new friend in the man who does not want to talk politics. In former campaigns he could parry with "I haven't read the morn ing paper," but now he hasn't a leg left to stand on. If he did not have his own radio turned on (and nothing short of mayhem will persuade his wife and children to leave it off), the family across the street had theirs turned on and the windows open. Darkest Africa, with its wild beasts and motion picture com panies, is to be preferred to the vicinity of a radio at election time. If there are loud-speak ers in Liberia, then there is nothing left but to see Naples and die. The voter whose spirit is willing but whose flesh is too weak to keep out of political con versations has only one out: he can work up some one obscure instance of political history and reduce his companions to an awesome si lence by springing it opportunely. For in stance, no dinner-table is complete without someone who says, "I don't know what makes Roosevelt think he'll carry New York." This is obviously an invitation to the ¦waltz. Every other person around the table is expected to have a rebuttal, which, in turn, will call forth more rebuttals. The man in the know will ab sently munch his soup until it comes his turn, and then, with all eyes on him, he will say, "They didn't see how Seymour could carry it in '68, and you know what happened that time." Since all, probably, but one of the gathering will not know who Seymour is and since no one knows what happened that time, it is unlikely that anyone will be willing to display his ignorance by replying, and the Sey mour man will be let alone for the rest of the evening. Occasionally each member of the party will look at him through half -closed eyes and say to himself, "Boy, if I had that guy's knowledge, I'd put 'em in the aisles." This type of maneuver is 100% effective, and is known variously as "the stinger," "the rabbit-punch," and "the choke-off." Other choke-offs, recommended by mature exponents of the art, are: "Maybe Washington wasn't kidding when he said, 'I'd rather be in my grave than be President.' " "Don't think for a moment that Bryan had any idea he'd carry Nebraska in '96." "Sam Tilden was governor of New York, too, and you know what kind of a bird he was." "Jackson ran around killing guys in saloons and they gave him the job." "How do you suppose Abe Lincoln felt when he lost New Jersey?" "Hoover? Say, you should have seen the wreck they made out of Monroe." Another, and less secure, form of the choke- off is the popping of an obiter dictum on the current campaign. This generally takes the form of a statement of political conditions in some forgotten section of the republic, Nevada, for instance. The danger lies in the possible presence of a resident of Nevada, although this danger is not considerable as native Nevadans generally explain the situation in Nevada be fore the rest of the crowd gets its hats off. It has been pointed out by the scholars that all these pre-election speeches by individual voters get us nowhere. This may be true, but it is also true that the pre-election speeches of the candidates do not get us very far. City and state elections are never worth talking about since it is pretty generally accepted that mayors and governors are of no use to anyone, so it is only once in four years that the (Continued on page 46) October, 1932 17 GIL BERRY The stalwart Captain of Bob Zupp\e's fighting Illini — granted an extremely fighting chance by Warren Brown in his article on the opposite page — in an off -the 'gridiron pose for the competent camera of Paul StoncRaymor, Ltd. 18 The Chicagoan King for the Fall Mid-Western Football Gets Underway B y \V a r r e n Brown NOW is the time for all good football coaches to come to the aid of the party with the statement that this looks like the greatest football season in history. The difference, in our Middle West, at least, is that they mean it this time. It will be a great football season. It can't miss. Middle Western football standards are taken, of course, from what is going on within the Big Ten, and at Notre Dame. Well, there're lots going on. There is, to begin with, a better distribution of playing strength than has been noticeable in many seasons. There isn't really a poor team in the Big Ten this year, though down trodden Iowa will have to be placed last among the lot as a matter of principle. Iowa's fight back to recognition within its own Conference is still under way, and the boys from out where the tall corn grows and grows — and isn't sold, Mr. Hoover — still have the fight on their hands. The strength in the Conference, at this writing, which is immediately following an in teresting and satisfying glimpse of A. A. Stagg's rehabilitated Maroons, seems to belong to Purdue, Ohio State, and either Michigan or Northwestern. Right at the heels of these can be placed Minnesota, Wisconsin and Indiana, with Chicago liable to press all of these, and Illinois and Iowa promising to be an annoy ance to all, if nothing else. The Western Confer ence has come up with three new coaches this season. Each one of them is bound to make a stir at the institution which employs him. Dr. Clarence W. Spears, late of Dartmouth and West Virginia, later of Minnesota, latest of Oregon, is now at Wisconsin, and you may be sure that the Badgers will get somewhere under his direction. The Doctor has his place among the country's coaches assured. Bernie Bierman, returned to Minnesota, where he was once a playing hero, made a great record with Tulane's teams. There has been a complete change of athletic administration at Minne sota, and the new coach, who has proved his efficiency elsewhere, will not be troubled by interference which marred the best efforts of the several who preceded him. Iowa has swung over to Ossie Solem, who coached long and successfully at Drake. Of Solem's coaching ability, the late Knute Rockne left behind an endorsement that many another more famous coach could well envy. Speaking of a Drake team that played Notre Dame in one of Rockne's undefeated years, the Great One said the Solem offense was the most carefully de signed and most effective of any that had been launched against Notre Dame that year. So much for the new coaches. The old-timers • — • and Dick Hanley of Northwestern now joins the oldest trio in point of Conference service — have hopes. A. A. Stagg, at Chicago, begin ning his forty-first year as coach, is downright enthusiastic over his prospects. Indeed, in his literary efforts which preceded the season's first game, the Old Man was positively effusive. Bob Zuppke, at Illinois, always the philosopher, and his sense of humor still intact after sev eral harrowing seasons gone by, professes hope. Zup's platform is that things must get better, because they simply cannot get any worse. This may be a sort of Republican plat form, for all I know. But it is essentially true insofar as Illinois football is concerned. Michigan and Northwestern play early in the season, and each is liable to suffer ill ef fects later on from scheduling such an impor tant contest so soon after the season's opening. Northwestern, which has elected to play, be sides Michigan, Illinois, Ohio State, Minnesota, Purdue, and Notre Dame, may suffer less than Michigan, since a team with a schedule such as that is liable to find the season just one tough game after another, and it will not mat ter a great deal whether Michigan comes first or last. Purdue has most of its veterans back, and some fine material. Ohio State has practically all the material that the entire Conference would need in a normal season. Michigan has a well balanced team. North western has lost some great linemen and 'will find it hard to replace them. If the replace ments are found, the Wildcats, with Rentner and Olson functioning, will be a tough team for anyone to beat. Departing from the Conference for a look at Notre Dame, the prospect is very satisfying. Coach "Hunk" Anderson has all the material he will need for a schedule that is made to order. He has suf fered a great loss with Marchmont Schwartz graduated, but he has oodles of backfield ma terial to call upon. His line, lacking the pres ence of a great guard of last year, Nordie Hoffmann, is otherwise liable to surpass that of last year in all around excellence. He has backs that can kick, pass and run. He has not one or two men for each position, but in some cases as many as four. He has a sched ule that starts late, goes along at easy stages for two or three games, reaches a peak, sags, reaches another peak, sags, reaches another peak, and then takes two -weeks rest, in prep aration for the season's finale with Southern California. At this writing, I haven't an idea which one of the Western Conference teams will gain a championship, but I have a fairly good idea which will be the strongest team in the Middle West. And I wasn't thinking of the Cubs, espe cially. i^*; •&v vi V* October, 1932 Overture to an Overture A Fanfare for the Symphony By Richard Atwater A MONG my dizzy pursuits of the past i-\ few lively years, I've been almost -^- -^-everything but a music critic. I am not, yet, a music critic. But — with a profound bow to Dr. Pollak of this handsome periodical — I feel like hailing the opening of the Chi cago Symphony's forty-second year, if only as the news event of the season. On Thursday evening, at 8:15 of the thir teenth of October — or shortly after these timid lines blush into your vision, the deity of calendar schedules being genial — the profound applause of a packed Orchestra Hall will slowly dim to a soft pianissimo as Frederick Stock turns affectionately to his renowned first violins bass clarinet second violins bassoons violas contrabassoon violoncellos horns basses trumpets harps cornets flutes bass trumpet piccolos trombones oboes bass tuba English horn timpani clarinets percussions — waves his magician's wand, and evokes the celestial harmonies of the overture to Men- delssohn-Bartholdy's A Midsummer Right's Dream. Obviously, this musical wizardry would be an event at any time. There are certain moments when man almost approaches divin ity; I can think of two such moments, and symphonies last a little longer. Hastily, as becomes one who is not yet a music critic, I add that I know the Midsummer K[ight's Dream enchantment with which Mr. Stock will usher in the Forty-second Season is an overture, not one of those musical epics in (usually) four movements. Luckily, the favorite Mendelssohn overture will, in fact, be followed by an undoubted symphony, and by what seems to me an especially happy choice in this heretofore troubled year, the "New World" symphony in particular. Its Largo will thrill you greatly, this year, or I am no sympathetic judge of audience psychology. If music can take on a new meaning according to its hearers' experiences, its American hymnal qualities should convey rather a nice message of ultimate triumph. And of course this happy reunion of the Chicago Symphony will be an especial tri umph, this fine Thursday evening. Last spring the chances of the orchestra were feared by many to be on a par with the lamented Civic Opera. Personally — again as a non-musician — I could sacrifice ten operas for one symphony. Whether I am musically right or not in this preference, the fact remains. The Symphony, at least, triumph antly returns to Orchestra Hall. As to the Bleak House that Mr. Samuel K*?-~ ~"jl k ML-**' *9am MteL • iKfl aB 9k- *^s * i «^i * - V ;1««^ r at Frederick Stock THE MASTER OF THE SYMPHONY IN PRE-SEASON VACATION MOOD AT EPHRAIM, WISCONSIN. Insull left behind him, over by the river, no word of tribute could be necessary after that which my awesome friend Eugene Stinson of the Daily Kiews made to it, and bravely, be fore Mr. Insull was even thinking of a rather lonely journey to France. But Orchestra Hall is happily quite another matter. Chicago built it, for Theodore Thomas and its Symphony Orchestra, in 1904. Since then, I am assured by a golf-tanned Charles H. Hamill, the Orchestral Association has never yet had to ask for contributions to meet a deficit. Thrilled Chicago audiences, entering a hall of magic via the season ticket window, have taken care of eighty per cent of the costs, for even magicians of the violin and oboe require these foolish tokens called money in order to live. This genuine audience support that Chicago gladly gives its Orchestra is, I am told, unique. It seems to be just one of those things that makes some of us, oddly, stay in this otherwise sometimes worried town. There is, after all, something about Chicago. Such as the great and blue- eyed gentleman who I am tempted to speak of as the Stock that has never depre ciated, when other securities failed. The newspaper reporters will tell you that they like to interview Frederick Stock, for all his modesty in eluding them whenever he can. On Mr. Stock's September return from the outdoor glories of the Hollywood Bowl and a talk or two with the princesses of Hollywood, I happened to be one of the lads to meet him when he stepped off the Chief at Dearborn station. I can therefore vouch that he was not only the most amiable of celebrities, but obvi ously took it for granted that the young men with the pencils were not Walter Winchell's, creatures from a burlesque by Ben Hecht, or fantastic and ignorant enemies from some strange and not quite buried stratum. He even saved a couple of them from being run over, in the midst of the platform chat, by a suddenly incoming train. I forget which papers he saved. But it's only fair to add I was one of the lads who had been standing on the wrong track. One of the things Mr. Stock said amid the whistles and airbrakes and puffings of the admiring locomotives, was that the depression seemed to have turned people's thoughts more than ever toward seri ous and real music. I can well believe it. A man has to have something to hang on to. The pleasant monotonies of a foxtrot have their points for the unworried. But on the whole, times being what they've been, I'm sure I'd rather not hear the moon coming over the radio mountain for the 735th time when there's a chance (as there will be in Orchestra Hall on Tuesday the 25th) to regain the deep, grand thrill of the Franck D Minor. In sounding this tusch for the Orchestra's return, I'd like in real reverence to close with four brief words. But I'm not sure whether they ought to be Thank God for music — or Thank music for God. The sentiment, in either case, is the same. Dr. Stock, I herewith join with Chicago in presenting you with a freshly polished baton. Spiel maV. 20 The Chicagoan Mr. Roosevelt of Hyde Park A Neighborly Note on the Democratic Candidate for President By Roscoe Cornelius Burchard IN Hyde Park, London, you can hear how the government ought to be run. In Hyde Park, Chicago, you can turn up your nose at Park Avenue. In Hyde Park, New York, you can meet Franklin Delano Roosevelt. When he isn't up at Albany, or down at Warm Springs, Georgia, or swinging around the country. It is to Crum Elbow, at Hyde Park, the thousand- acre Roosevelt farm, that the Governor of New York State and Democratic Candidate for President retires for the rest he doesn't get. For sev eral thousand other fellows and their wives know about this Hyde Park and they come in tens and hundreds to seek favors, offer advice and talk over old times, and new. There they see Roose velt as a man and not as a national figure. And the man is glad to see them, for he likes to have people about him. The Hyde Park home has been the seat of the Roose velt family for generations, and it was there that Frank lin was born. The house is large and colonial, the lawns are broad and green. But Roosevelt likes to think of the place, not as an estate, but as a farm. And he manages it as a farm. He directs the planting, the cultivating and the harvesting, and each year he sells in the open market the surplus corn, wheat and alfalfa which is not needed to feed the fourteen cows, the hogs and the work and rid ing 'horses which the Roose velt acres support. JTl is holiday at Crum Elbow begins at eight in the morning with break fast in his room. He is a hearty eater and likes almost everything, being particularly fond of duck which has been hung by the neck until very dead indeed. There is only one thing which Roosevelt will not eat. He will have no bananas any day. For breakfast he likes orange juice, crisp bacon and eggs, with the sunnyside up, toast and plenty of coffee. After he has finished and read some of his mail, eight or ten visitors enter his room. Some he sees alone, some in delegations, and one batch is much like an other. Weeping mothers seek pardons for sons, rotund politicians ask his advice, lisping little girls bring bunches of flowers, Boy Scouts bring samples of wood from the eleven-thou sand-acre camp in Sullivan County which Roosevelt helped lay out. Hearing their stories and accepting their presents takes about two hours. After the last morning visitor has gone, official-looking documents and is ready for a tour of the farm or countryside in his Ford coupe. He likes to drive the car himself and usually does. But he also likes to have some of the family or friends come along. "Any body coming?" he asks. And whether they are or not he is off, pausing on the way to admire the two-mile stretch of road through swampy land which he constructed years ago and which he considers a master piece of engineering. His local reforestation project also comes in for close atten tion. Each year he plants thousands of young conifers and hardwoods on which he keeps a watchful eye. Under his direction the State of New York has appropriated twenty million dollars for re forestation on marginal or waste lands. Reforestation is a state-wide project now, but it began in the Governor's back yard. FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT Roosevelt works a couple of hours in his library. There is always a pile of papers waiting on his desk. Beside, being Governor of New York State, he is trustee of innumer able charitable, educational and philanthropic enterprises and these often demand almost as much of his time as the business of the State. He has put in hundreds of holiday hours on the Warm Springs Foundation alone and has turned the place from a small resort into a nationally-known sanitarium for others afflicted by the disease which nearly killed him twelve years ago. By noon he has leveled off several piles of jl\s often as not he will drop in on Moses Smith, who farms a big tract of land back of the Roosevelt place. Moses and F. D. have spent many hours in earnest discussion of pigs, clover, milk, honey, and kindred agricultural subjects. Or he may stop off at the farm of Pete Rowen, another neighborhood agriculturist. The family won't go with him, now, if it knows he in tends to see Rowen. He always says he will only stay at Rowen's place ten minutes, and he invariably stays an hour or more. And then he will take out his watch and try to prove that it was only ten minutes. Many a weighty discussion with some visiting pundit has waited until Rowen has aired his views on the relative merits of country gentleman and golden bantam. If the day is fine the Roosevelts and their visitors may go on a picnic. The Governor is very fond of picnics and will postpone any but the most important business to go. His favorite picnic comestible is hot dog, which he prefers to roast himself over a slow fire. On cold or rainy days he gets his lunch at the big house. The meal is usually a series of entrances, all late. If John and Franklin, (Continued on page 48) MARTIN VOS October, 1932 21 PHOTOGRAPHS BY PAUL STONE-RAYMOR, LTD. PHILIP FAVERSHAM For several decades past the name of Faversham has been synonymous with excellent mati nee business. The advent of Philip, son of the famous Wilh'am, should continue this tra' dition for some decades to come. From being baseball captain and football quarterbac\ at the exclusive Middlesex School, young Mr. Faversham passed by easy stages through the stoc\ brokerage business to the role of the grandson in Another Language. After the Chicago run Another Language will head for the coast, where the movie octopus is \i\ely to get this handsome young actor in its toils. — W. C. B. Wintergreen Carries Chicago And Throttlebottom Coasts in on the Landslide By William C. Boyden OF Thee I Sing is in Town. Its advent was as stirring to the theatrical torpor of this vicinity as its own opening chorus was to the dudes, demi-mondaines, de butantes, dilettantes and drama critics who packed the Grand to the doors at that ex hilarating premiere. And what an opening chorus it is! None of your "Heigh-Ho, We are the Merry Villagers," but an amazing orchestration of a campaign slogan with Tarn.' many and other politico-chants interspersed. VSintergreen for President is the name of this ensemble, and for competent comment on said song and the rest of the Gershwin score, you are respectfully referred to Herr Doktor Pollak, our handsome and erudite commentator on things musical. All I can say is that this number should have the result of making the atre-party hostesses very acerb as regards guests who breeze in at eight o'clock for a seven o'clock repast. The other day I ran into a man 'who blandly bragged of missing the first part of this gumptious show. I awarded him L'Ordre de la Tete d'Os. If it is possible to put a quietus on the talk about the talkies killing the legitimate theatre, Of Three I Sing should do it. That it would be utterly futile to try to can the color, music and barbed wit of this joyous joshing of our political booberies must be obvious to even Irving Thalberg and Cecil DeMille. And theatre-goers, those forgotten men, are again admitting their identities and eagerly inquir ing when they can get seats for Of Three I Sing, instead of wearily questioning "if there is anything worth seeing in Town." And once more one hears that phrase, so dear to the heart of the press-agent, "sold out two weeks in advance." I get kind of jittery, trying to think up something original to say about this unconventional winner of the Pulitzer Prize. The temptation gnaws at my intellectual vitals to haul out my Allen's Synonyms and copy all the words listed under that tired old adjective, "wonderful." For here is something the like of which has not been seen since Gilbert and Sullivan laid aside their pens and took to quiet evenings of crib- bage. Here are a thousand little golden arrows of satire, pricking the pompous rears of our most sacred cows; and lyrics of sparkling, impudent wit tossed on such musical notes as only George Gershwin can assemble; and a chorus of tantalizing lassies whose very songs and dances are a nose-thumbing at those who take up the profession of ruling our destinies; and a cast of happy principals who keep their faces straight, but who seem to get the same kick out of the frolicsome buffoonery as the urchin who bulls-eyes the silk topper with a snowball; all blended, coherent, colorful, fast, smartly framed and stylish. I guess that was the longest sentence 1 ever wrote, but not half long enough to give an adequate impression of the entertainment worth of this spritely bur lesque, into the making of which went the brains best equipped for such a chore, the Gershwins, Kaufman, Ryskind, Jo Mielziner, not to forget that sage and worldly producer, Sam H. Harris. For it must have been Mr. Harris who as sembled the efficient cast employed to give comic reality to riders on the Washington Merry-Go-Round. Could there be a happier choice than the neat, dapper Oscar Shaw for the role of a Presidential candidate running on a platform of Love? Oscar has been making facile stage-love longer than most aspirants for the White House have held public office. He is suaver than Hoover, better dressed than Coolidge and doubtless sings better than did Woodrow Wilson. The immortal Throttle- bottom is portrayed by Donald Meek, an actor who has had a long and honorable career of lifting the inferiority complex to comic levels. He is priceless here. A well deserved hit is made by Cecil Lean as a strong-lunged news paper man. Mr. Lean is favorably recalled by the mothers of our current debutantes as the chief heart-palpitator of those good old Princess-LaSalle days. The French Ambas sador, who threatens to break off diplomatic relations because our President ignores The Illegitimate Daughter, etc., of Napoleon, is projected with droll solemnity by Adrian Ros- ley. Harriette Lake and Roberta Robinson are probably two of the prettiest girls who ever tested the amatory judgment of a Presi dent. The laughing joy of a show like Of Thee I Sing is a draught of clear, cold water washing from our mouths the dark brown hang-over taste of the Depression. It should get more votes in Chicago than Hoover and Roosevelt combined. A horse of a different color is Another Language (Harris), but an other thoroughbred of its own kind. Rose Franken wields no exuberant paddle like her fellow playwrights, Kaufman and Ryskind. Her instrument is the scalpel with which she probes sharply into the psychological cross currents which go to make up family conflict. And the operation is a complete success, re sulting in a play of deep understanding and tender beauty. While her theme, the insidious domination of a family by a mother with a matriarchal complex, has been used before, as in The Silver Cord, Miss Franken has broad ened the scope of inquiry into this sort of tyranny by giving us a husband, four sons, four daughters-in-law and a grandson. Under the command of the mother's egocentricity they all march in lock-step, except the youngest wife and the oldest grandson. Their revolt gives us the plot. However, it is not so much the story which gives the rare quality to Another Language, but rather the closely observed and lucidly defined incidents which go to make up the life of the Hallam family. The observer finds him self startled into guilty laughter by the familiar passages between mother and daugh ter-in-law, husband and wife, and father and son. I believe that George Jean Nathan re marked that the situation is typically Jewish. On the other hand, I heard a man claim that the Hallams are typically of a small mid- western town. And therein lies Miss Frank- en's art. She has disguised the universality of her theme and deceived her audiences into be lieving they are viewing happenings peculiar to race, locality or social status. As a matter of fact, the Hallams might live on Park Ave nue or in Podunk; they might be Argentines, Portuguese or Greeks; they might have safe deposit boxes bursting with Liberty Bonds, or be ex-bankers looking for jobs with the Recon struction Finance Corporation. The casting director for Another Language must have ordered a parade of all the unem ployed members of Equity to have found five Hallams who so closely resemble each other. It is refreshing after some of the incongruous stage brothers we have seen. Only the grand son lacks the rubber-stamp Hallam physiog nomy. As played by Philip Faversham, he is a handsome maverick in the family herd. And young Mr. Faversham gets plenty of appeal into his Young-Woodleyish interpretation of the boy who falls in love with his aunt. Tom Powers, as always, gives a sound performance as the husband of the rebel daughter-in-law, but the role is a bit too pragmatic to bring out the fine sensitivity of his acting. I liked Enid Gray as the bitter-sweet mother. With nice restraint she resisted the obvious opportunity to make a tour de force of the role. The daughter-in-law, who speaks another language, is in the hands of the ever lovely Patricia Collinge, who gives the right touch to the bewildered soul in a soulless environment. There seems to be no good purpose served by extended comment here on Fritz Blocki's The World Between (Adelphi). The play was produced in Chi cago last year with an amateur cast, was seen by the critics and unanimously declared to be interesting but uncommercial. Undeterred, my friend Blocki has now given the drama a professional production. Although he made some minor changes, the critics have held to their original opinion. I do not disagree suf ficiently with my betters of the press to write of The World Between in terms of eulogy. Nor have I the heart to join the anvil chorus. So put me down for a poltroon and forgive me if you can. October, 1932 23 To the Rescue Ernest Hemingway Again Shocks Oak Park By Susan Wilbur I AST spring Chicago appeared to be in grave danger of losing one of its chief -^ claims to literary capitalism. By sum mer the danger had become almost a certainty. So much so that by the end of July Harriet Monroe was herself not only resigned to the discontinuance of Poetry but had settled down to a quiet contemplation of the more pleasant aspects of catastrophe. And pleasant aspects there were if you could sit down and contemplate them. There was enough money left for an index volume. In other words, to wind things up in style. Forty, or counting the index, forty-one, volumes of Poetry complete on the shelves of libraries all over America and Europe. A twentieth cen tury Yellow Boo\. A monument to an epoch. Furthermore, Poetry's affairs once settled, there was the prospect of Miss Monroe finding time to write her autobiography. A five foot shelf of Chicago complete in one volume. Her father came here in the fifties. He might even have known the Kinzies. At any rate, later on, that is after he had actually become her father, he did pass on to her memories of a town where you could sit on the curbstone at say Michigan and Randolph and chat with your friends. Her own everyday childhood acquaintances grew up to be, either literally or metaphorically, the builders of our town. She herself a pillar among pillars since her precocious rise to official poetic status at the World's Columbian. Needless to say, however, no one with a muse burning, or poems to sell, could have written the above paragraph. And fortunately for such, the twentieth anniversary number is now on the press with a manifesto in true old Ezra Pound style as harbinger of at least one more year of exist ence, and contributions by associate editors . past and present of such highly assorted ages as to insure the true tradition of editorship for another twenty years. Three cheers for the pork packing guaran tors! Long life to Poetry and everyone con cerned. But two bits the next twenty years will not be as exciting as these twenty were. i\s witness two books of October. First, The 7<iew Poetry, revised and enlarged by H. M. from the edition got out bv herself and her first associate, Alice Corbin Henderson, back in the days when Poetry was four years old and the anthology racket as yet undreamed of. Was it the latter fact, or was it that as editors previous to book form they shared certain rights with the publishers, that this bird's eve view of the progress of poetry in the twentieth century was able, and still is able, to offer a table of contents which at the present day price per item would cost a lay anthologist thousands and thousands? If in deed he could get permission at all for these tens and twenties of poems by Frost, Masters, Robinson, Sandburg, Yeats, Millay. The pres ent edition, due for publication within the next few days, includes selections from a hundred and sixty poets. Its -wholly new feature, a hundred pages of biographical notes, the term biography being stretched to include bibliog raphies and excerpts of criticism. Secondly, Poets and Their Art, by Harriet Monroe, which discusses upwards of twenty of Poetry's own poets as well as a few ancients. To the book as originally printed in 1926, Miss Monroe adds essays on Elinor Wylie, only one of whose collections had then appeared, and on Archibald MacLeish, whose star also has chiefly risen since that time. And writes last chapters to the tale of two con tributors of the very longest standing, Amy Lowell and Vachel Lindsay. Tragic endings these, but one of her poets has had a happy ending had she chosen to write it. Namely Edwin Arlington Robinson, who, having re fused either to work or not to work at the Customs House job tendered him by President Roosevelt, has, since 1926, had the unique experience of good poetry itself being trans lated into money. Whatever the critics on this side of the water and the other may have said about the more radical; matters printed in the front of the magazine, no one has ever expressed any thing but enthusiasm for Miss Monroe's prose as printed in the back of it. And as the flicker of personal reminiscence crosses the pages of her critical articles, the person with no muse burning and no poems to sell finds himself hoping that Miss Monroe may profit by de pression tactics to speed up her associates and cut down their salaries and write her auto biography anyway. The autobiography was by no means Clarence Darrow's first book. Mr. Darrow had already written more books than some of us who make a business of writ ing. Among them one which, slipping into print and out again, has ever since its first appearance in 1904 been pretty generally recognized as a classic. That is, Farmington, prose lyric of a barefoot boyhood. A lyric, be it pointed out, however, of the A. E. Hous- man cast. In the words of the preface to the new edition: "our childhood in Farmington lasted such a little while, and was so long ago." Out in Oak Park no body seems really to approve of Ernest Hem ingway. Not even his relatives. Nor is his new book Death in the Afternoon likely to accomplish anything toward the recognition of this wayward genius in his home town. It is difficult to visualize bull fighting as a practical village activity. Or even to imagine its theo retical acceptance as a fine art or as an object lesson in death, eloquentlv and circumstantially though Mr. Hemingway puts his plea, and excellent though his photographs may be from both points of view. And furthermore, though Death in the Afternoon is ostensibly about bull fighting, it does contain its fair share of those less churchly memories of youth and less pretty anecdotes of war that have hitherto kept Mr. Hemingway's books from the library tables of a village that specializes in small chil dren. As an exegesis, however, the English department in the Oak Park High School, said to be excellent, would be compelled to accord it an A for atmosphere, clarity and the re search involved, if not for the actual grammar. Edith wharton's The Cods Arrive is in part a reunion with old friends. Friends out of Hudson River Brctc\' eted. And in other ways too is it pleasant as one's renewed encounters with Mr. Gals worthy's Forsytes are pleasant. This in spite of a somewhat rigid pattern. A woman leav ing her husband to look after a literary man. Their relationship traversing the usual gamut. With this further element of pattern, that Halo is of the old New York aristocracy, while to Vance, insofar as the subtler aspects of human intercourse are concerned, the proper holding of his fork still remains a mystery. The true theme is however more footloose than you would believe possible from the pattern. Vance stepping out in the Bohemias of Lon don, Paris, and New York, is gossip, or if you will, satire, in the true Galsworthy vein. If you should ask any articulate American why he preferred Euro pean scenery to American he would probably say because there is a story behind it. A Euro pean guide book not only tells you where to go but everything that has happened on the spot for the past two thousand years. Last summer, when I was paying a visit at Lake Winnebago, a gentleman from nearby dropped in with an Indian arrowhead that he had just dug up in his garden. In other words, Amer ica would have as romantic a past as any where else if it hadn't been so careless as to cut down its Indians along with its primeval forests. In The Invasion, Janet Lewis does a very beautiful thing for a very beautiful part of our country, St. Mary's and the region about the Sault. Her point of departure is an actual family, the Johnstons of St. Mary's, one strand of whose ancestry goes back to the Ojibways, and she has dealt with it most clev erly, using the methods of fiction, while not actually Actionizing materials which are pre cious because authentic. Her method might be described as a stream of events, in contrast to the late fashionable stream of consciousness method. Having brushed in a leafy back ground of what happens and what is believed among the Ojibways, she introduces her first Johnston, a trapper. (Continued on page 54) 24 The Chicagoan Personal Intelligence Observations on a Socially Serious Season THE sumac in my neighbor's yard makes a red and glowing background for the few late flowers in our garden — stately dahlias, hardy marigolds and sturdy zinnias. Brown leaves are sprinkled on the lawn. The whitest of clouds drift across the bluest of skies. October is here, and regardless of the state of one's bank account — if any — there is something cheerful and stimulating about these crisp clear days of early autumn. New colors on the horizon, new fashions in the shop win dows (and how!) — whether you be city or country dweller, there's a freshness in the gen eral atmosphere that must reach you. Out in the country, the hunters and hounds went into action some weeks ago — definite in dication that the summer was about over — and by now the Millburn, Longmeadow, and Du Page meets are going strong, providing capital entertainment for those who take part and for those who trail along in motor cars to share in the thrills of the moment. The first buds of the season have made their bows to society at garden teas, and the last of the country club dances have been given. In town, the houses, apartments and clubs of fashion are being whisked into order for the festivities of the winter, such as they are to be in these unostentatious times. Summer wardrobes . have been packed away and the more sombre frocks and coats of autumn have taken their place on the clothes hangers. In tune with the prevailing spirit of change that is in the air, even the feminine silhouette has taken on new lines. Shoulders are -wider and waists narrower — hats are smaller and more rakish than ever — necklines higher and hems lower. That an outfit be becoming is not nearly as important as that it be chic. In Chicago's social an nals, October is always a Serious Season, for it is during this month that most of the great philanthropic activities of the town are given their real impetus for the year. Campaigns are mapped out — benefit parties planned and staged. Everyone who amounts to anything, socially speaking, has his or her finger in some special philanthropic pie, and is busy at the moment doing something about it. An inter esting commentary on social leadership lies in the fact that prominence in a community goes hand in hand with generosity, not only as to the actual donation of money, but the giving of one's time, energies, imagination and faith. The merest mention of one or another of our civic or altruistic enterprises immediately brings to mind the names of certain men or women who have helped put them on the man. Leading the list of October benefits is the St. Luke's Fashion Show to be held at the Stevens on the afternoon and evening of the twenty-fifth. Some years ago, this annual af fair became firmly established in the roster of gay-events-with-a-serious-purpose that are a By Caroline S. Krum real contribution to sociability in Chicago. It is always amusing and well done. The hand somest young women of the town enjoy acting as mannequins because the clothes and jewels exhibited are the very snappiest and the audi ence highly appreciative — really good fun for everyone concerned. Mrs. John W. Gary, general chairman and treasurer of the committee in charge of the show, returned recently from a delightful sum mer outing in Scotland, and is now up to her ears in work for the show. On the last Tues day in September she gave a luncheon at the Fortnightly for the members of the committee, which includes Mrs. A. Watson Armour and Mrs. Philip L. Reed, in charge of the sale of boxes; Mrs. George A. Ranney, whose pleas ant task is the selection and rounding up of the mannequins; Mrs. Walter B. Wolf, who will arrange for the exhibits (this energetic and enterprising lady is also much occupied just at present with the efforts of the Repub lican National Committee to raise funds for the coming campaign, as she has accepted the post of chairman of the Women's Division of the Illinois Finance Committee) ; Mrs. Kersey Coates Reed, stage manager for the revue; Mrs. George N. Northrop, Mrs. William L. Hodgkins and Mrs. Charles I. Pierce, who will have charge of the dressing rooms the day of JEAN GORDON OF BOSTON WITH LUCY FAIR BANKS PHOTOGRAPHED BY PAUL STONE- RAYMOR, LTD. the show; Mrs. Augustus W. Eddy, program chairman; Mrs. Henry Faurot, who has again taken over the job of getting publicity for the gala event; Mrs. Charles Giore, who is to sell shares, and Mrs. Raymond N. Ashcraft, chair man of the flowers. Mrs. Sterling Morton did all the preliminary work for the sale of tickets before she left for Europe a few weeks ago, having accepted the chairmanship of that com mittee early in the spring, but unfortunately won't be here for the festivities of the twenty- fifth, as she isn't planning to come back from abroad until November. On the twenty-ninth of this month, a grand party is being planned by the Lake Forest Arden Shore committee of which Mrs. Kingman Douglass is chairman — a real country dinner-dance (not to be con fused with the annual Arden Shore ball to be held in town on the tenth of December) at Deerpath Inn. Mrs. George F. McLaughlin and Mrs. Phelps Kelley have promised to run the party, and although as yet the plans are not completed, it has already been decided to make it a "hard times" affair, with moderately priced tickets, good food and excellent company. Another benefit on the early autumn roster is the polo match between a picked Chicago team and an eastern team, to be played in the 124th Field Artillery armory, the proceeds of the evening to go to the Eli Bates Settlement House. Mrs. Philip Maher is publicity chair man for the match — she returned from Des- barats late in September, in plenty of time, however, for the brilliant Latin Quarter Fete given at the Drake by the architects of Chicago on the thirtieth. With the Alfred Shaws and the Walter Paepckes, the Mahers were hosts at one of the largest dinners given before the ball. Mrs. Paepcke, as chairman of the Work shop of the Junior League, is busy just now with plans for the coming season of the Junior League Theatre for Children — in fact, those two organizations of the young women of the Town, the Tunior League and the Service Club, have no idle moments on their capable hands at this time of year, what with the latter's annual revue scheduled for the evenings of October twentv-first and twentv-second at the Goodman theatre, and the whole camnaip-n of work cut out by the League for this winter and next year at the Century of Progress. i\s to the lighter mo ments of life, dinner table conversations and cocktail party discussions (the latter referred to recently by one of the bright young men of the Town as "good 'Old-Fashioned' arguments, and make mine the same") have to do with many things these days — politics first and fore most as the November election approaches and the postman's bag is (Continued on page 58) October, 1932 25 Urban Phenomena It's Going to Be a Gay Season WHAT we seem to be having now is a little Indian Summer Trouble. . . .

"These books are all my friends," said she with a vague sweep of her ringed fingers. The Literary Man picked up a gorgeously bound volume, the leaves of which had never seen a paper-cutter.

THE GLORIOUS BAY DROPPINC AWAY FROM MONTE CARLO MOHAMMEDAN AFRICA IN THE BUSY STREETS OF RABAT Rhapsody c On the Mt B v Luc: PREPARING FOR A JOG INTO THE DESERT FROM CAIRO NO matter what happens, no matter who is elected, no matter whether there is a Kx>m or a crash,' we will all have that "cnd-of-everything" feeling after the first of the year. The let-down after the holidays combines with our low vitality and the most depressing weather of the year to send our thoughts skittering off to blue skies, south winds, olive groves and mimosa. The Mediterranean cruises, already announced, cover the loveliest and most interesting ports of the world. Some of them arc brief interludes for a busy winter, such as the one month crui?es of the French Line's De Crasse, and the short cruises operated from its European port by Hamburg-American. There are four of the latter, all on the Oceana. The first starts March 4 and lasts twenty days. Lisbon, Madeira, Malaga, Algiers, Barcelona, Ville- franche, Genoa are among its ports-of-call. The three other cruises start on March 25, May 6 and May 2?\ making, among them, such ports as Naples, Port Said, the Azores, Tunis, Corfu, Athens and just here and there. I HE De Crasse does not take in the far eastern ports of the Mediterranean but makes a colorful circuit of French-Africa up to Naples and the southern coast of France, to the lazy islands which the great and the near great have been raving about this year. Then there are the longer tours which cover the Medi terranean ports from west to cast. Three famous world cruising ships are being moved to the blue waters of the Mediterranean — the Columbus, the Statendam, and the Empress of Australia. All three have been tried and highly praised as cruisers. They arc regally luxurious and spa cious, their public rooms, their swimming pools, their airy state-rooms, will make life aboard as gay as life in the brilliant ports at which they call. The ports themselves are al most as varied in contrast as the ports of a world tour. On one hand the fascination of Spain, on the other the exotic excitement of Algiers and Morocco. The slow charm of Majorca contrasts the brilliance of the Cote d'Azur There are song and wine m Naples and Venice, HEADED FOR SUNNY WATERS, The Columbus, OF NORTH GERMAN LLOYD n the Deep iiterranean a Lewis and medieval towns along the magnificent Dalmatian coast Trails left by many civilizations are followed in Carthage and Greece, Constantinople and the Holy Land, Cairo and the Tombs of the Kings. It is a leisurely cruise. There is plenty of' time for carriage drives in Cadiz and Seville, and visits to the glories of Granada and the Alhambra. C^ne may drive into the desert beyond Algiers and do the mysterious cities which teem on the oases. There is time enough to lose your shirt at Monte Carlo and play and drive at Nice, Cannes, Villefranche. There arc five days in the brilliant hotels of Cairo with hours and hours of haggling in bazaars, of mosques and races and cocktails. Down to Thebes and Karnak and a night in the shadow of" the Pyramids. A drive through the Holy Land may include stops at Nazareth, Galilee, and Jericho. The oriental atmosphere of Constantinople is a striking change from the austere beauty of the Acropolis. Canadian pacific lias inau gurated a new method of quoting rates with and without shore excursions included, which will appeal to those pas sengers who wish to forego visits to places which they have thoroughly covered in previous visits and give more time to new ports. This plan makes it practically an inde pendent cruise with no charges for sight-seeing which the individual passes up. And pss-s-t, the rates are from twenty to twenty-five per cent lower than last year's, which were already pleasantly low. If Ernest Hemingway's new book has aroused a fever ish desire to do Spain you can cross on the lovely southern route of the Spanish Transatlantic Line and cover the country thoroughly in as little time as you wish. From Spain, then, you may catch a ship to visit the other Medi terranean ports or fly on the regular passenger airplanes to the North African country or any of the important Euro pean cities. The Spanish steamers are noted for their resplendent rooms and resplendent cuisine, with wines and champagnes flowing like water at every meal. Their new branch in Chicago is now at the Raymond Whitcomh offices on north Michigan Avenue.

The brothers live in adjoining pent-houses up above Riverside Drive. On a clear day George can see Carnegie Hall and Tin Pan Alley, and he has made startling and notable con tributions to both. Ira, no dis ciple of the June-moon-tune school, is writing the most literate and amusing lyrics in America. The Genius of Tin Pan Alley A Few Notes on the Music of a Triumphant Score By Robert Pollak THE score of Of Thee I Sing makes a chapter in itself. Reams have been writ ten about its wildly funny satire, its sprightly lyrics, its outrageous belly-laughs at national government, and even about its two or three principal melodies. But has anyone given its purely musical aspects separate and extended comment? I think not. The Metro politan has been crying for years for Amer ican opera. The best it has got so far is the talented output of Deems Taylor, two music- dramas as American as a bottle of Moselle. Believe it or not, Of Thee I Sing is the curious answer to the enlightened opera goer's prayer. Not that you could convince him. He would contend, and with justice, that such bawdy nonsense hardly belonged inside a grand opera house, and he might hold, with no justice at all, that a national opera, when it comes, must treat in a weighty manner with weighty music of weighty subjects. His latter argument re ceives a prompt knockout from Gilbert and Sullivan. They are, and from present pros pects will continue to be, the national opera of England. And they were never on dan gerous ground except when they tried to be just a weensy bit "grand." It is not necessary to cite a single further example. Yet if one were demanded I would suggest The Bartered Bride at once. It is superbly nationalist ex pression, built on broad and simple lines, with a libretto full of beer-drinking yokels. It con tains neither gods nor princes. Its music warms the heart with Mozartian directness. However you classify Of Thee I Sing, you must deal with it in terms of extraordinary American expression. The critics of music wander hollow-eyed through the concert halls looking for young and orig inal American composers. The prize-winning compositions of the NBC orchestral contest will give you a rough idea of the best they can find. But I doubt that any critic, however hoary and pedantic, can resist the tremendous impact of the Pulitzer prize-winner. If he dis misses it as musical comedy he obviously makes an ass of himself. Light opera, operetta, opera bouffe, comic opera, all mere monickers. He finds himself in the presence of music and word, both biting and merry. He forgets, per force, the sanctity of the concert hall, the exi gencies of the suite and the concerto. He must herald the birth of an American Gargan- tua and not be astonished at the locus of the lying-in or the impish character of the obste tricians. The overture to Of Thee I Sing is only ade quate. It improvises wittily in brassy chro matic chords on the chorus motto of Because without ever stating that excellent song in full. Who Cares appears solidly below a running fiddle figure suggestive of the last movement of Scheherezade. More dissonant, dotted chords, and then the broad announcement of the "hit" song, Of Thee I Sing. The touch of the master appears immedi ately in the opening chorus, Wintergreen For President, a rousing musical slogan built on an inversion of the minor triad. It marches stur dily along, only to be interrupted by sardonic snatches from old campaign songs, Hot Time in the Old Town, Tammany, Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here. Brother Ira leaves George alone, only pointing out that "he's {Winter- green} the man the people choose, loves the Irish and the Jews." The musical slogan bobs up relentlessly, pacing on into a brief coda, still insisting upon Wintergreen for President. From here on in the score is full of matchless touches, ironic orches tral comments that bring the text to life, count less spurts of melody, skillful choral passages, fresh and unconventional harmonization. You have doubtless heard that the hits of the show do not display Gershwin at his best. The statement is true as far as it goes. The iso lated little jewels in Girl Crazy, for instance, shine more brightly than the rather common place Who Cares. But listen, if you go a second and a third time, for the ingenious com bination of two delicate tunes at the opening of the second scene. Observe the Austrian suavity of the waltz (commodo) doing honor to Diana Devereaux. And when Wintergreen announces that he cannot marry Diana, heed the startled snarl of the orchestra and the pal pitant chorus. The entire finale of Act I is astounding. The supreme court justices are announced by a pompous fanfare built on the song Of Thee I Sing. They advance in bur lesque march. A four part chorus on the steps of the Capitol, sings glad welcome to the President and his bride. He bids good-bye to his bachelor days in gracious song and as he repeats it the chorus does a blithe patter against him. There is a faint hint of Men delssohn's march. The bride sings the last bars of Wintergreen's bachelor adieu a third higher, and pianissimo. The marriage is con ducted over a murmuring improvisation on Of Thee I Sing. The rest of the act is taken up with Diana's claims for breach of promise. She tells her story in quavering and strongly parodistic recitative. The chorus discusses her case and, after she is temporarily defeated, give the act a smashing ending with a mighty five-part restatement of Of Thee I Sing. jCyt the opening of Act II the White House secretaries greet the morn ing with joyous aubade. A cheery whistling chorus is followed by a lyric, Hello, Good Morning and then by a sturdy exposition of the pleasures of administrative labor. The return of the lyric and the whistling chorus round out the number. It is ingenious in form, a long distance from the conventional oompah opener designed primarily to get the clients back into their seats. The alert musi cian will snap to attention when the French ambassador and his sextet of blue devils march into the President's office. They enter to the opening subject of Gershwin's American in Paris. Their Gallic gibberish is set to a mel ody that pokes subtle fun at the little nursery folk-tunes of France. The Ambassador's She's the Illegitimate Daughter is a rollicking six- eight affair studded with martial triplets. Within it lurks the obscene ghost of Hin\y- Din\y Parlez Vous. Another mournful and magnificent waltz is given to Diana, the jilted, who sings it to sympathetic senators in the following scene. And when Mary Turner saves her husband from impeachment by an nouncing a forthcoming White House baby she tells the glad news with a masterly waltz song, deliberately marked a la Viennoise, a jubilant tune that Lehar or Kalmann would be proud to own. Note finally the clever use of folk modes in Trumpeter Blow Tour Golden Horn and the killing cooperation of Brother Ira "with a hey-nonny-nonny and a ha-cha- cha." But it is not necessary to complete a case for this Gershwin score. One only needs to call it to the attention of every sensitive and hearty musician. He will, with brave effort, stop laughing at Kaufman and Ryskind when the band strikes up. A musical examination of Of Thee I Sing would hardly be complete without mention of Russel Bennett's orchestrations. He has changed the complexion of the modern pit or chestra, and here we discover him at his best. A merit badge, also, for M. Levant, who con ducts the local company with youthful vigor and musicianship. Might as well make this a Gershwin department this month. You may now purchase George Gershwin's Song Boo\ (Simon and Schuster), a beautiful volume, containing camera studies of the composer and eighteen of his best songs, each accompanied by a saucy Alajalov drawing. Maestro salmaggi's Chicago Open Air Opera Company presented a dismal Carmen to conclude the outdoor sea son at Soldier's Field. Dreda Aves, in the name part, sang above, below, ahead and behind Creatore's scrawny orchestra. Ralph Errole's pleasant tenor was not large enough to infuse life into Jose among those vast open spaces. The ruined grandeur of Amato's voice, the presence of this once great singer in such taw dry surroundings, provoked gloomy medita tions on the will-o'-the-wisp, fame. M. Sal maggi's Aida was funny. But his Carmen was sad. October, 1932 35 Above the Belt New Fines Are Emphasized By The Chicagoenne WHILE the skirts of the year are lovely things, long and full and flowing like those on Greek statues, couturieres are hitting chiefly above the belt for their im portant impressions, their whimsical touches and exquisite detail. Sleeves are infinitely interesting. The black crepe informal gown below, from the Rie-Go Shop, has fascinating wide ones of the dolman type which fall in graceful folds or spread out beautifully. Metallic touches are everywhere this fall. The sleeves and high collar of this frock are gold lame faintly threaded in black. Lame is frequently used for little separate capes and jackets and even on this informal type of dress gives a dash of sparkle and elegance without looking elaborate. More throat and sleeve interest is produced in the stunning street dress at the right below. Louise Stevens shows this in a soft natural kasha. The sleeves have a gay flaring point just above the elbow and the detail of sunburst pleats and seaming is especially fine. The whole is touched up by a dash of leopard fur at the high collar line, which also forms the scarf -like tie. Altogether a delightful dress in which to spend all your autumn days. This note of fur is going to be dinned in your ears all across these pages. Bands of fur, scarves of fur, capes of fur, great big collars and muffs and leis swathe everything from dress to coat, for day and evening. Some of the most exciting coats at the Saks-Fifth Ave nue fashion show had huge round collars of sable which slipped over the head and stood up around the chin like the collars of Russian Cossacks. One had two silver fox skins at tached at the shoulder which could be draped about in half a dozen ways. Another ensemble in a luscious crushed grape frock with a wrap of harmonizing seal brown had the knee-length cape entirely out lined in kolinsky. It's as pleasing as anything ¦we've seen for ages. Onug as a bug in a rug and smart as the dickens is what you will be. in the dress which sports the bright little cape at the right. This too, is in a natural tone of tweed and the separate cape has a band of brown moleskin as accent about the bottom. It buttons down the back and the high snug collar is charmingly military. The other cape in this picture is in soft gray in a very sheer tweed (gray insinuates itself into the autumn picture through some of the smartest frocks). Here it is combined with notes of black which are struck by black leather buttons on the dress and the little bands of black caracul on the cape and sleeves. A Peter Pan collar of white crepe adds a flattering touch. Both dresses are from the Rie-Go Shop. Two of the new hats by H. S. Frank in the Palmolive Building dash into the picture above, because they are so very different and attractive. The little cap is pulled into a faint suggestion of a point in front to give a slight tricorne effect. And at each side a flat little -wing of dull gold metal brings in a touch of the aviator's elan. So many of the new hats are tiny affairs that the grande dame has quite a time finding something she can wear. The other hat in this illustration shows a perfect hat for the woman who wants to be smart with the smartness of the elegante. The crown is fashionably shal low and the brim swoops down with an elusive grace that is very flattering. A velvet band is twisted about the crown and tied in a large bow at the side of the brim. The Frank Shop is showing some of the newest hats in the little flat sailors, tricornes, and other models which are set squarely in line with the eyebrows and make no compro mise with tilts. And a lot of brightly colored hats which are going to make it a gayer winter when they are worn over dark coats and frocks, as Paris is doing now. A very modern broad- shouldered effect with a touch of charming Victorianism is created by the enchanting din ner frock from Mandel's. In rich black velvet, the whole top of the dress is formed into a deep V line, front and back, by the many pleated ruffle. It's illustrated below. To make the ruffle give its crisp modern ap' pearance it is lined underneath in yellow-flow ered taffeta, so the thing isn't slimpsy at all; and the quaint yellow flowers give just a hint of color as you move about. Just about perfect for many times and places — street wear, sports and travel — is the swagger three-piece costume from Louise Stevens, on the next page. The short jacket underneath the topcoat has fine lines of stitching about its collarless, high round neck and two trig rows of metal buttons down the front. This makes a grand suit for the warmish davs of Indian summer. When colder 36 The Chicagoan winds blow you don the third piece, which is a very jaunty seven-eighths length coat. The high collar ties at the neck and the shoulders are widened by long bands of gray astrakhan which travel down the sleeves to an interesting point above the wrist. A dash of color — and what color! — builds the shoulder interest on the other suit from Jay Mignon. This is in a warm woodsy brown wool but the dress top and sleeves are of a multi-colored Rodier fabric striped in tones of rust, green and brown predominating, with just a tiny stripe of yellow and purple thrown in. The three-quarter sleeves of the jacket show these stripes on the dress sleeve, and the scarf of the dress points up the color motif at the neck. Duo-tone or duo-tex tured frocks are another way in which the above-the-belt importance is brought out. On the frock from Mandel Brothers just above the skirt is a heavy dull crepe with the velvet top glowing more richly in contrast. This blouse is interesting because it introduces the high neck, yea, even with a surplice front. Soft ripples of velvet at the elbow give a modification of the leg of mutton sleeve. This velvet top and the wrap-around skirt make the hips fade away into a mere shadow — very flattering. The evening dress whose back decolletage is shown is a thing of beauty in its extremely heavy pebbly satin with a very faint lustre. In a deep winey tone this has a magnificent back and sleeve line achieved by the tricky bands of kolinsky which encircle the armholes and ripple down the back. The lines of this are heavenly from the severely simple front with its high neckline and uplifted bosom to the sweeping folds of the skirt. It all started with the copy of the French avocat's jabot and extended into variations of every bib and collar ever known to man. Small bibs, big berthas, nun like collars, are introduced. i 'Zs cire satin which shone like the wet skin of a seal. A lustrous lei of coq feathers focuses attention on the all-important neck and shoulders. All sorts of gay things were done with capes and jackets for evening and dinner dresses. The brief little ermine cape in the center did something new by adding diagonal bands of kolinsky slanting from top to bottom instead of horizontally. The cape is king everywhere — even to get ting down to a knee-length for street suits, glory be. The cape illustrated appeared over a two-piece suit of blurred gray and black checks. The cape is in the checks too but as .i^.tdveave. Mandel's show this demure little affair in a pebbly white crepe on a frock of heavy brown pebbly crepe. It is high, of course, at the throat and cascades in a series of narrow ruf fles, finely pleated. Wide white cuffs flare at the wrists in a series of the same little ruffles. But it's in the upper right corner. Another demure little note was introduced in a black dinner dress shown at Saks-Fifth Avenue. This was worn with a quaint little guimpe of white batiste which rippled at the throat and emerged as short puffed sleeves, for all the world like the things at which we gnashed our teeth in school — but we yearn for them now. The recent fashion showing by Saks-Fifth Avenue excited so many people that every floor in the shop had to be thrown open, the mannequins had to quad ruple every parade and the night was filled with a thousand ohs and ahs. Snatched from the many, many interesting things on view were the three notes above. An evening dress in a sombre purply tone achieved brilliance by being done entirely in it flies back gaily it discloses a lining of bril liant blue which is repeated on the belt of the jacket underneath. Worn with a devil-may- care air these can be almighty devastating. ivLL in all, the season's styles are fascinating and flattering. Every line is new and every trim is fresh. Necklines must be high, sleeves must be full, there must be furs and frills and fussy little things, and the complete ensemble should be a happy mix ture of prim Victorianism and pert sophisti cation. And there are so many, so very many individual touches that may be had. It's all rather confusing, rather like the dear, kind (the kind you'd love to kick down stairs) old lady who was on a terrace with a scientist, gazing at a fully-starred heaven. Said the sci entist, "There are twenty million stars in the heavens." And said the d. k. o. lady, "So I see!" October, 1932 37 In the Continental Manner Dining Again in Jolly Old Europe By The Hostess THE next time they rave about the per fectly divine things they used to get back in France and tell you how nos talgia grips them at every sniff of the leek, just ask them up for dinner and produce a dish that will make their nostrils quiver. Time 'was when it was difficult to copy exotic foreign foods because the ingredients were unknown on this side of the water. But now most of the better green grocers carry leeks and chives and the like, and the fine downtown stores have just everything in the way of spices and sauces and all things savory. So, flying about from French to German to Hungarian to Swedish chef we gathered a few secrets of foreign cookery to make life brighter for those who pant to go continental every once in a while. The Gallic way with the less familiar meats, with sweetbreads and liv ers is a subtle one. Now that chicken livers may be purchased by the pound at most butch ers you can prepare a chicken liver dinner without buying fifty chickens for the ingredi ents. The chef at Maillard's discloses the secret of the tender, succulent livers which make Chic\en Livers en Casserole such a great favorite at Maillard's. After washing the livers and drying them he cooks them very slowly in deep butter. During the cooking (which takes about twenty- five minutes) he drains the butter and adds fresh butter three separate times. This is the procedure that keeps them light and juicy, and well worth knowing, as the ordinary sauteing toughens and dries them into little bits of black leather. He uses about a half pound of butter for each order, but since it is used later for the rest of the dish don't wince. Cut apples into three-quarter inch slices, drop them in a thin batter and fry quickly in the butter drained from the livers. Remove the stems from large mushrooms and salt and grill the caps. This is proudly served in those splendid earthenware casseroles which retain the heat. The livers are piled in the center of the casserole with the apple slices around the sides and the grilled mushrooms on top. Another famous dish at Maillard's is Chicken au Beurre, which is composed of deli cately sauted breast of chicken served 'with wild rice and surrounded by a circlet of new peas, diced potatoes and diced mushrooms. No one can go very far in French cookery without bumping into wine sauces, but, fortunately, wine sauces may still be imported properly seasoned by French chefs. A shelf lined with Mouquin's Sauce Bercy, Sauce Bordelaise, Sauce J^ewburg, and a few of the alcoholic dessert sauces starts one off merrily on a menu which is as French as Right and Left Bank put together. Some of the famous old Mouquin recipes will add to anyone's reputation. A few of these have made history: Fish Vin Blanc Roll fish in salted flour and brown in 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Serve with Mou quin's Sauce Bercy. Sea Food "h[ewburg Yl lb. shrimp 12 small oysters 1 lb. lobster Cook shrimps, oysters, and lobsters. Clean and add to cream Newburg Sauce which is made by melting 2 tablespoons of butter thick ened with 2 Yl tablespoons flour. Add one cup milk and stir mixture constantly. When thick remove from flame and add Newburg Sauce. Ba\ed Apple with Sherry Core apples and make syrup in frying pan of lYl cups of water and Yl cup sugar. Place apples and syrup in pan and cover. Allow to simmer until apples are tender. Remove them from liquid and cook liquid until about Yl cup is left. To this add 2 tablespoons of Sherry Cup. Pour over apples and cool. Champignons Sherry Clean and pare mushrooms. Place in cov ered dish in oven with small amount of butter. When nearly cooked add 2 tablespoons of Sauce Newburg and bake. This is delicious poured over broiled steak, chops, or chicken. Entirely different in seasoning is the Hungarian cuisine. An inter esting change in the preparation of chicken may be introduced by Chic\en Papri\as. Chic\en Papri\as 2 large onions 3 tablespoons lard Paprika (sweet) Salt 1 cup sour cream Flour 1 chicken Chop onions and fry in lard until soft and golden brown. Add 2 tablespoons of paprika. Wash and cut chicken into parts and add salt to taste. Simmer for five or ten minutes and then add 2 glasses of water. Cook slowly for about one hour. Beat one cup sour cream well with about two tablespoons of flour to make a smooth paste. Add to chicken and cook a few minutes longer. Serve with noodles or macaroni. The authentic Hungarian does it with home made noodles prepared as follows: Beat two eggs with two tablespoons flour and salt. Add enough flour to make a very soft dough. Place dough on a small plate and cut small pieces into the salted boiling water. Hungarians think nothing of spending hours beating up a torte, which is practically the national dessert. But the result is a triumph. An interesting varia tion is: Sacaer Torte Yl lb. sweet butter 1% cup granulated sugar 10 egg yolks Yl lb. almonds (unblanched) Cream and sugar (Continued on page 56) 38 The Chicagoan Fashions for the Fall Random Notes on the Several New Autumn Trends By Frank Hesh THE Autumn months always mean time, part-time, over-time and home-work for Stagg and Hanley and their aspiring and perspiring young men. And the Autumn months always mean, too, the culmination of the work of the artisians who design and pro duce men's clothes, because with the Autumn months, up pop any number of handsome new models to catch the ever-wandering eye of the male who desires to be resplendent. And the men's shops and departments of department stores are full of new fall things, from which we have managed to snag a few sketches. The figure on the left is wearing a Finch- ley creation, tailored at Fashion Park. The jacket is double-breasted and draped with a soft, pliant fullness over the chest and shoul ders and a decided tapering above the hips. The striping, in this instance, is dark on a lighter field instead of the usual light on dark, and, by the way, there is quite a tendency toward stripes in clothes and neckwear this Fall. The trousers are without cuffs. Marshall Field fe? Company are showing the topcoat worn by the center figure. There is a slight waist-line, not tight or form fitting in the least, but something more than a hint, and the current fullness at the shoulders and through the chest. The double-breasted front, of course, gives a touch that is more or less formal. At the right, Capper & Capper's Robertson model is shown. The Bond Street notched lapel and the swank British body lines are obvious. There is a well-defined waist-line and the full-draped chest, and an extremely soft front and rippled sleeve-heads. Capper's will feature the above model in various shades of English flannels with plain colors predomi nating. And we've picked up, here and there, ever- so-many notes on what will be what this Autumn. Blue, it seems, will be the most popular color, for almost everything — suits, overcoats, shirtings and scarves . . .Black comes next . . . Change pockets in jackets, topcoats and overcoats are quite, oh, quite, and very handy, too, you'll find . . . and things will have white stripes, chalk stripes and groups of stripes . . . You'll not see many greys or browns . . . Oxonians and the men of Cambridge are wearing brown jackets and grey flannel slacks . . . Poplin shirtings are darned good . . . and starched collars are much lower and square-fronted . . . Black Hombergs will be quite the thing for formal evening wear . . . Shoes for the street may be reddish-brown with Blucher (don't forget the umlaut) lasts and plain or wing tips.

LaSalle Street Chicago THE LIDO DECK OF THE AUGUSTUS REPRODUCES ALL THE GAY COLOR OF THE FAMOUS RESORT WISH FULFILLMENT Around the World .By Ruth V. Morse FOR days now I've been going around murmuring, "Bali, the earth's last Paradise," "Tripoli," "Siam," "Japan in Cherry Blossom Time." Sedate State Street stores metamorphose into colorful Oriental marts; Chinese sampans loom on the horizon of the Lake. "Bali," "Siam," "Japan" — there I go again! I know the treatment for what ails me. The most understanding psychi atrist in town couldn't prescribe bet ter than I could myself. So I am not only handling my own treatment but am trying to get all my friends to take my medicine. It's a four-month treatment and begins on January 14th next, on the day when the Augustus sails. Italian palaces which live in the sun inspired the Augustus. Her great sweep of public rooms . . . broad, white decks running free and clear . . . the Lido deck for sports, a warm- tiled swimming pool and crystal sea- water lifting to the sun ... all reflect the sunny glories of the Mediter ranean, her native waters. I hen the grandeur of the Marine View dining salon 'with high French windows opening on the promenade and the sea . . . the Crys tal Ball Room . . . Florentine Gar dens . . . the Imperial Lounge . . . the red-lacquered Japanese Tea Room . . . dusky delights of a Norman Bar . . . cool Moorish Verandah . . . the Renaissance Cafe for gay intimate parties . . . Library and Card Rooms . . . Cafe Terrace . . . the Snack Bar . . . rooms for private dinners and parties . . . and, high above the rest of the ship, the Observation Bridge Deck, quiet and cool for your deck- chair reading or napping. That Lido deck must really be de scribed more fully. Picture gay- striped umbrellas, cabanas and beach chairs, bronzed men and women in colored pajamas and bathing suits, lounging, chatting, lolling, or perhaps splashing in water that is like tinted crystal. White-coated waiters pass among them carrying trays of refresh ments. The noon-day sun gilds the THE CRYSTAL BALL ROOM OF THE AUGUSTUS MIGHT HAVE BEEN LIFTED FROM AN ITALIAN PALACE The Chicagoan GRANDEUR BLENDS WITH GENIALITY IN THE IMPERIAL LOUNGE whole scene. That is the daily pic ture on the Lido deck of the Augus tus, patterned after the charming re sort of that name on the Adriatic. And a word about the dining salon. Here the fine Italian hand is shown again in placing this vastly important place (sea-air does things to your ap petite, no matter how jaded), on the promenade deck, where it is always cool and refreshingly airy. And now the itin erary! The course of the ship will include all that has been found best in long world-cruise experience, in addition to new features rarely available. The American Express Company, veteran of world-cruises, is cooperating with the Italian Line on this cruise. The Augustus will voyage eastward into the sun, seeking climates and seasons. She arrives in the Medi terranean and calls at the Riviera, Italy and Egypt at the height of the fashionable season ... a special stop at Tripoli, never before visited by a world cruise ... the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean to "somewhere east of Suez," the Java Sea and up from the Malay to China, Japan and the Pacific Islands. The last leg of the four month voyage will take the Augustus cruise members through the Panama Canal via Cristobal, Havana to New York, which is reached May 20, exactly 126 days after the gala sailing on January 14. Ninety-nine ports and places will have become part of the experience of those lucky circumnavigators ! To cheer you deli cate-skinned explorers who hate ex tremes in weather, I must say that this cruise has been planned with especial regard to temperatures. India is reached just at the season when con stant breezes cool the land; China with the first warmth of spring; and Japan at Cherry Blossom Time; the distant and charming East Indies and Siam when they are most livable. There is a call at the rare and seldom visited Sumatran port of Belawan Deli. And, I've been saving this — the island of Bali. If you're a travelogue reader, in fact if you're literate at all, you could not have escaped the deluge of extravaganzas about this last earth ly Eden in the last year or so since it has been "discovered." Here is your chance to revel in the refresh ing atmosphere of an unmechanized civilization where a gentle, cultured, artistic people, mixture of Hindoo and Polynesian, pursue their calm, Eden like existence, wear their startling simple costumes and dance their glori ous dances. Bali, Siam, Chinwangtao . . . there I go again, and there you go too, I hope. nereis a Tvet plank everybody can get together on Corinnis SPRING WATER (~~* ORINNIS was one of the high spots of last summer's conven- — tions.

Just imagine being able — and for only a few cents a bottle — to have water that is not only always clean and sparkling, but also delight fully good to taste. Beg your pardon? Yes, indeed, you can have Corinnis delivered direct to your homestead anywhere in Chicago or suburbs. Most neighborhood stores carry it, too.

S. Chadwick THREE American ladies arrived at the Victoria Falls from Cairo a few years ago. The leader of the trio was a woman in the early forties. In a spirit of adventure they had landed at Cairo and had travelled up the Nile, and down Africa to the Zambesi, quite alone; without acci- dent or adventure, and with no beat of drum or flourish of trumpets. At the Falls the younger ladies were still eager for more satisfying experiences. So when a friend of mine described the varied and pic turesque journey up the Zambesi to Barotseland, they decided to make the trip, and engaged him as guide and protector. The elder lady went on to await their return in Johannesburg. How primitive this journey is may be gauged from the fact that it takes three weeks to cover the 450 miles from the Falls to Lealui — the capital of Barotseland. The transport is by barge propelled by native paddlers. People whom duty compels to hurry become irritated with its inaction, and a torpid liver contracted through lack of exercise has ruined more than one friendship — temporarily at least. But to those who can camp where they will, without regard to time, hunt the wonderful variety of game along the river banks, explore the wooded islands and the broken forest country bordering the hundred miles of rapids, and enjoy the beauty of the wooded stage of the journey, the trip is one long pic nic in the dry season. Coming down stream the time is shortened to ten days, so that six weeks to two months gives ample time for leisurely exploration of the country. This route will always remain prim itive, as the heavy sand country adja- cent makes mechanical land transport impracticable, and the long series of cataracts and rapids prevent the use of motor boats. It is a purely native protectorate and will probably remain so. There the careless, untrammeled existence, which he has lived for cen- turies, is still enjoyed by the native; and will continue to be enjoyed whilst the world rushes onward — to what? I hose -with more time, and an unsatisfied thirst for ad venture, may leave the boat on the return trip, about 150 miles before the Falls are reached, and proceed by another even more primitive by-path through the northern Kalahari to SOUTH AFRICA HAS MANY SPLENDID BEACHES AND SECLUDED NATURAL POOLS LIKE THIS AT MOSSEL BAY 42 The Chicagoan DRIVES IN THE CAPE PROVINCE ARE REWARDED BY SMOOTH ROADS AND WUNDERBAR SCENERY Grootfontein in Southwest Africa. In covering those 500 miles they will pass through country where the fast- dying, small brown Bushman hunts the teeming game which has retreated with him before the threat of civiliza tion's advance. It is a primitive path which should not be attempted with out a guide, but one which will leave life-long memories. An Australian friend of mine shot his first lion in this area, and for six teen years has returned at intervals to renew acquaintances with both lions and his Bushman friends. On his first trip he trekked right through Southwest Africa from the coast, and came on his first lion when about two hundred miles from the Zambesi. He shot and wounded it, and very unwisely, followed it into cover. The lion charged and knocked him down, hurling his rifle yards away. Then it proceeded to savage him until it left him unconscious, with a lacerated chest, and his right arm broken in three places. He set the limb himself, and treated the wounds with carbolic soap, until he secured help from a white man sixty miles awav. He recovered and went to East Africa on active service, and on each visit here since then he has shot lions without mishap. His usual method is to sit up all night in a bush shelter only eight feet from a kill, and kill the lion in the dark when he arrives. It was on the op posite bank of the Zambesi, at the mouth of a tributary about fifty miles to the north of this, that I shot my first lion. I was travelling with ox- wagons and had built a stout pole kraal to protect my cattle from the numerous lions. As an additional precaution I usually set a trap gun outside. One morning at sunrise I went to remove the gun when I let the cattle out. Then a native drew my atten tion to some haartebeeste across the river, and I went after them. Hav ing shot two, I returned, to be in formed by my driver that two lions had lain watching me remove the trap gun. As evidence he showed me the urine-soaked soil, and the imprint of their bodies in the sand. He himself had watched their departure. So I took the offensive and with two natives followed them up. We had gone about three miles when something strange, looking somewhat like a small ant heap, about sixty yards ahead, led me to stop and point it out to the natives. As we watched, a similar and smaller object appeared beside the first, and we identified them as the heads of a yellow-maned lion and lioness, set in a frame of ever green bush. 1 had confidence in my rifle, and sitting down in a comfortable position I aimed carefully at the centre of the largest head. But before I pressed the trigger the lioness rose and stood facing me. So I shifted the sights an inch to the left, Sfthite Sulphur Springs The Greenbrier and Historic Cottages America's A'\ost Beautiful All -Ye ar R esort Superb Golf and Riding^ Complete Hydrotherapy " The Nucleus of the b Nation SINCE !>;-& '• '-'. .Jol rislon General Manager White SulpWSprings .

For an instant he stood irreso lute, while I hastily forced another cartridge into the chamber. Then as I aligned the sights, and before I could bring them to bear, he disap peared in a single bound. Meanwhile, from whirling dust- clouds and flying tufts of grass, came harsh, rasping sounds, of devilish in tensity; and I hastily removed behind a large tree ten yards to my rear. I then located the natives up a tree five yards away. It was apparently their retreat — unnoticed by me — that had brought the lioness to her feet, and given me a better target. After all, natives can be very useful. When the dust and turmoil ceased I approached the body, inwardly hoping that she would not imitate the buffalo's counterfeiting of death, and his swift resurrection. She proved really dead, but was a mangy old beast, with a skin plentifully scarred and of little value. In that area today game is as plen tiful as ever, and is likely to remain so because it is unapproachable by the cars which are driving the wild crea tures into districts remote from roads. But the river route is very easy, if slow, and within a fortnight of land ing at Capetown the visitor may camp at night where the roar of the lion, the cough of the leopard, or the bark of the kudu, frequently punctuate the musical hum of insect night life. The Zambesi is one of Africa's primitive paths. HIGHLIGHTS AND SMUDGES Notes on jLrt Galleries and Exhibitions By Edward Millman THE Studio Gallery — Increase Robinson — has been showing an interesting group of Mexican Fiesta water colors by Morris Topchevsky, an instructor at Hull House. Many artists have gone to Mexico and have come back with paintings highly stylized, and in their obvious attempts to paint in the naive man ner have only succeeded in a kind of studied naivete with sometimes a tinge of sophistication thrown in. The re sult is not Mexico, but a painter from the states taking a holiday in a foreign country and painting the peon as per haps he would a Kansas farmer. But this is not true of Topchevsky. He is well equipped to paint in Mex ico. Though he is self-taught, his approach is fresh, vigorous and naive. The water colors catch the brilliance and primitive quality so necessary in depicting Fiestas. Particularly interesting ones are variations of the same theme called Plumed Dancers. They are well or ganized and rich in color and mood, catching the very spirit of Mexico. Beginning October 1? through November 15, this gallery will hold an exhibition of mural and easel paintings of Chicago by Chicago Artists. Among the exhibitors are Emil Armin, William S. Schwartz, Karl Hoeckner, Julio de Diego, Mor ris Topchevsky, Marcena Barton and Rifka Angel. After this show a big pre-holiday sale will be held of water colors, prints and drawings by young Chicago moderns. Under gay parasols and on green grass the Evanston Little Art Gallery, directed by Mrs. Frank C. Engelhart, Mrs. Paul von Klieden and Konstantin Mitasoif, held an outdoor show in Grey Park, Evan ston, September 9 to 18. The generosity of Mrs. Frank G. Logan, who incidently bought a num ber of canvases, made it possible, through a donation, to continue the exhibit five days longer than orig inally scheduled. The first five days $3,200 were taken in, the remaining five days, $5,000, making altogether over $8,000 of pictures and sculp ture sold. Among the one hundred or more exhibitors, forty-eight com missions were obtained for portraits and ninety-three students enrolled. Many amusing trades were made, such as permanent waves exchanged for paintings, a snow scene for an electric ice box, and two prominent artists traded their work for wine. The headquarters for the exhibit were next door to the park in the home of Mrs. Engelhart, where pic tures were stored and all needs sup plied from sweaters to aspirin, in cluding sandwiches. Among the invited exhibitors were the North Shore Art League and the Ravinia Sketch Class. In Viola Norman's interesting studio in the old Audi torium Tower are found some beauti ful portrait busts, figures and com positions. This gifted sculptress has modeled in clay, many prominent Chicagoans, among whom are George Woodroft, Carey Orr and the late John J. Mitchell. One of the many things we saw was a copy of Mrs. Calvin Coolidge's Chow-Chow done in bronze; the original is in the Coolidge home in Northampton. She has recently opened a school of sculpture in her Auditorium Tower studio and has attracted a lot of at tention. Students come from all over the United States and some from for eign countries. The students have the opportunity of receiving daily criticism of their work, and likewise of developing a fine appreciation of sculpture. The Chester John son Galleries will have their formal opening the afternoon of October 21st, with a tea sponsored by the Public School Art Society of Chi cago, headed by Mrs. Walter Brew ster. The admission is $2.00, the proceeds to go towards the purchas ing of paintings for the public schools of Chicago. We eagerly await the opening of this exhibit for judging by previous shows, there should be many fine ex amples of the past and contemporary periods in French painting. The A. Starr Best Collectors Corner is really a store filled with 17th and 18th century pewter, old British glass and many old and rare books elegantly bound and printed.

They cover a period in the early nineteenth century when the art of the silhouette had its peak. Among them are examples by Strand Field, Melford Hubbard and Miers. Many are signed pieces. This is a collec tion well worth seeing. 1 HE first opportu nity for over a year to view a collec tion of the dramatic and pictorial etchings of Frank Brangwyn is offered this month by the O'Brien Galleries. Mr. Brangwyn is particularly promi nent in England and on the conti nent, and although he is a member of the Royal Academy, he is not what is customarily termed an "academi cian.'" He is perhaps best known for his paintings and mural decorations, which display much strength and imagination, and has also won acclaim for his water colors, woodcuts, tex tile designs and lithographs. Mr. Brangwyn's etchings show a most thorough knowledge of crafts manship with an innate sense of com position and charming imagination. Many of them are extremely large. Six of his largest ones are included in the present exhibit, each of them one of his most widely-known etchings. (Begin on page 17) Daniel Webster whom we encounter on the elevated train and the bus gets a real oppor tunity to shake his leonine mane and astound the gang that laughed when he sat down at the piano. Free speech has permeated to every corner of the country, and the back-room of Krausmeyer's General Store at Five Points, Ind., no longer has a monop oly on the amateur experts. Every parlor is full of them. We could no more suppress political arguments among street car motormen and front- platform passengers in this country than we could enforce a law forbid ding the manufacture, sale, and trans portation of alcoholic liquors. The mention of alcoholic liquors reminds us that by the next election the whiskey-bottle will have been re stored to its own, and where the whiskey bottle is there the political orators wax warmer. Before Bryan's day it was an axiom that no man could properly assert himself in Oc tober without a toddy or two inside. Sunday School valedictorians were broken to the bottle early in their careers in the hope that they would turn out to be second Clays, Web- sters, or Douglases. Mr. Bryan was a seven-day wonder; the historians have never, up to now, been able to figure out how he could work up such a sweat over 16 to 1 silver with out three fingers of brandy every third paragraph. I doubt that we shall ever see the likes of the Great Com moner again. Certainly the average layman, who is common clay, is a much more effective political orator drunk than sober. Bacchus cannot be recommended too highly as a jockey in the oratorical sweepstakes. Although the country at large has been wringing its hands over the inferior work of the performers in this year's cam- One, for instance, is the very lovely Bridge of Sighs, and two often men tioned are the Canon Street Station, London, and the Inn of the Parrot. This exhibit will continue through the month of October. Enrico gucen- STEIN exhibited etchings, water colors, oils and sculpture at Knoedler's Sep tember 24 to October 15. Glicen- stein now resides in Chicago, but comes from Italy and Poland. His reputation is secure in Europe and has fast become so here. He is best known for his sculpture and exhibited four quite charming pieces in this show. Among the etchings were a group of seven variations of the 2Aas\, done with a hard though sensitive line. One feels the sculpture in all of these, and a feeling of mysticism per vades this group as does a penetrat ing sensitivity. The etchings, we thought, were the high spot of the entire exhibit. Mr. Glicenstein's son, Emanuele Romano, will hold an exhibit of paint ings at Knoedler's October 20 to November 10. Romano was born in Rome in 1897. He studied in Venice, Naples and at the University of Geneva and has exhibited in New York, Boston, and Cincinnati -with great success. paign, Illinois has been unusually for tunate in having Big Bill Thompson, the white elephant of the G. O. P., on the firing line. Most Chicagoans, I think, have a soft spot in their hearts — or their heads — for The Builder. He has always been an ex cellent entertainer, although, like most excellent entertainers, he comes high. Those who were bored stiff by Gov. Roosevelt at Topeka or Pres. Hoover at Des Moines would have done well to tune in on Mr. Thomp son during the early stages of the campaign. A couple of weeks ago the better element muzzled him, and thus civilization creeps onward and destroys the simple pleasures one by one. Not only was Wonderful William his own amazing self, but in addition he furnished the local electorate with a brand new battle-field when the national fracas was at its dullest. I did not follow the developments very closely, but I believe it began when Big Bill was alleged to have said that Len Small had Jewish blood in his veins and that his real name was Levi Silverman. This was alleged to have brought an indignant denial from Small, who declared, allegedly, that while his name had been Silverman at one time, it was originally Henry Cabot Lodge and had been changed to Silverman during the campaign of 1896 by his parents, who were ardent exponents of the silver cause. Of course Judge Horner, who is Small's, or Silverman's, rival for the governor ship, began a whispering campaign among the Hindus on North Clark street, and Mahatma Gandhi's hunger strike was the upshot of the whole' business. In the end, Judge Horner is alleged to have alleged that the silver spoon that Len Small was born with in his mouth was one of a set that was alleged to have disappeared from the executive mansion in Spring- THE ORATORICAL SWEEPSTAKES You, Too, Can Be a Political Expert The Chicagoan Princess Rostislav in the Shop of the Four Seasons presents a fashionable autumn collection of individual frocks for every occasion, at prices pleasingly moderate.

No sooner had this transpired than Small is alleged to have changed his name to Cermak and to have placed him' self at the head of a fusion ticket of the Grant Park State Bank and the Illinois State Treasury, retaining the best features (including the interest at 3%) of each. The very next day Mr. Thompson's body was found in a culvert near Hammond, and that night he crowned "Miss Bronze Chi' cago" at the Savoy Ballroom. I may be a little off on some of the minor details of the situation outlined above, but the newspaper readers of Chicago and vicinity have had no difficulty in fol lowing the case. Unfortunately, Big Bill's efforts over the air were abro gated, and the greatest orator of the present campaign is forced to per form with his cleverest epigrams pruned by the censors. This left the voters with only Hoover, Roosevelt, Mills, et al., for amusement, and they turned out so badly that every man jack of us had to shift for himself. This condition flooded the market with political experts, and the market went down. A depressed market on this commodity is always typified by a dearth of listeners. Since August every expert has had no more than two or three listeners. As the work of the candidates has continued to be of an inferior grade, it is predicted that the two weeks immediately pre ceding the election will find each ex pert with only one listener, who will continually interrupt him to offer his own opinions, at which the expert will move away talking to himself. In summary, it may be said that the primordial principle of being a political orator lies in asserting your self firmly on both, or all, sides of a question. This is an art. If you can't straddle the fence, keep away from it altogether. It is not necessary to bay at the moon in no uncertain terms to convince your Thursday night bridge crowd. The more un certain the terms are, the better. The further removed your references are from general knowledge or current issues, the more effective. Don't pound the table and make an asser tion unless you are certain that no one else has enough nerve to contra dict it. No man ever made a success in public life by using a declarative sentence. The candidate who would rather be right and be President soon learns better. MR. ROOSEVELT OF HYDE PARK A Neighborly Note on the Democratic Candidate (Begin on page 21) the youngest boys, are home from school they ex plain that they had to finish that last set of tennis. Mrs. Curtis Dall, the daughter, announces that she was rid ing a mile from home before she thought to look at her watch. Jimmy, whose six-foot frame is always good for a laugh when the Governor intro- duces him to political audiences as "My little boy, Jimmy," has been swimming. Elliott, another husky son, has been hiking. The Governor's mother, Mrs. James Roosevelt, manages the big house and accepts such excuses as inevitable. Known to the children as "Granny," she takes the rap for every dish which fails to find favor with any member of the household. If there is a roast, the Governor carves. After lunch F. D. goes back to work again, but on warm days he knocks off at about four to swim in the pool. Swimming is his principal exercise and through it he has recov ered most of the muscular power in his legs which he lost when infantile paralysis attacked him. The pool is about forty feet by twenty and six feet deep. If there are enough swim mers on hand for water polo there is a strenuous game. If anyone is hungry after the swim he can get tea in the nearby Val Kill cottage furnished with replicas of early American furniture from the Val Kill shop, also on Roosevelt land. Named for a little stream which wan ders through the place, the shop was started by Mrs. Roosevelt in hours culled out from her school teaching, editing and other activities. It gives work to the master craftsmen of the neighborhood and has supplied fur niture not only for the cottage but for several rooms in the big house. Its products are also on display and sale at the show rooms in New York City. Of late years Roose velt has taken up horseback riding again. He has cantered many a mile along the back roads of the country side and he usually takes a dog or two with him. The cares of office, however, have curtailed the model yacht race across the Hudson, which used to be an annual family affair. Each entrant had to design and make a boat of his own in one of three classes: forty-two inch overall sloop, forty-two inch overall schooner and twelve-inch sloop. All the family and several friends took part. The rec ord time for the three-quarter mile crossing is nine minutes, twenty seconds. But the designing and making of the little craft occupied too much time, and it's hard to get a quorum for the race, now, anyway. Three of the children have homes of their own and only come back on holidays. Mrs. Dall usually brings her children with her and then there is considerable rough housing on the floor or beside the swimming pool, with the Gov ernor playing the lead. His ability to relax under the pressure of work is one of his greatest assets. He is always ready to tell or listen to a good story and at the annual dinner to newspapermen he and his confiden tial secretary, Louis Howe, invariably prepare humorous squibs about every correspondent present. Nobody dresses for dinner at the big house unless the presence of some important guest seems to demand it. Through long experience Mrs. James Roosevelt has come to figure on twenty guests as the average. And nearly always they are a pretty cos mopolitan lot. The meal is always informal, even when surrounded by dinner jackets. Afterward everybody strolls into the living room where, in the fall and winter, a bright fire crackles in the six-foot fireplace. Sometimes there is a game of bridge, though F. D. is no expert at the game. It is during these after dinner hours 48 The Chicagoan Homes— and single hotel-rooms with true personality!

He usually stands near the fireplace, leaning upon his cane, or lolls in his pet easy chair, a powerfully built, broad shouldered figure with a chest expansion greater than Dempsey's. His clothes are usually old favorites whose destruc- tipn he has vigorously and success' fully opposed. One old coat, out at elbows, he clung to for years until his mother consigned it to the junk man. Getting him to the barber for a haircut is also something of a job, though he has himself shaved every morning. F. D. goes to bed about eleven-thirty and reads and smokes cigarettes (Camels) until one or two. The "photographic mind" which biographers like to describe en ables him to read an ordinary novel through in about an hour. He is fond of detective stories which do not call for too much concentration, but he also likes historical stuff, especially that dealing with naval matters. He is perhaps the best authority living on the American navy and it is said he can name all the ships engaged in any battle or war which the navy ever put on. His interest in naval history, which began when he was Assistant Secretary of the Navy, is also shown by his collection of naval prints. It is second only to that of the Navy Department and includes hundreds of pictures. Roosevelt has so many of them that the walls of his New York City house on East Sixty-fifth Street, as well as his rooms in Hyde Park and the Executive Mansion at Albany, are completely covered by them. Even the doors, from top to bottom, are hidden behind the prints. After an hour or two under the reading lamp he reaches for the switch. Six or seven hours' sleep is all he needs to rest him thoroughly. And in the morning he gets up and drives back to Albany for a day of real work. TVax-TVorks 'TpHE major recording companies, A as excited as we are at the advent of fall, have extended themselves to turn out some interesting discs during the last four weeks. Topping the Columbia list is Mas- terworks Set No. 174, the Mozart E Flat Violin Concerto, played by one of the oldest orchestras and youngest soloists in Europe. The band, the Brussels Royal Conservatory Orches tra under Defauw, and the fiddler Alfred Dubois. Dubois, a splendid violinist, has won the Vieuxtemp Prize. His reading of the concerto is sparkling and alert. You will prob ably remember it, if you are a steady concert-goer, as the one that Thibaud performed on his last visit to Chicago. That redoubtable Englishman and noted Bach specialist, Harold Samuel, contributes the Partita No. 2 through Columbia release. A clear and learned piano pressing. In fact, Mr. Samuel sounds better on the records than in the concert hall, a phenom enon we will leave to someone else to explain. It repeats itself in a Maurice Marechal 'cello recording of the Vivaldi D major Concerto.

Yamanaka & Company 846 No. Michigan Ave. Chicago 50 The Chicagoan ferent impression at his last local ap pearance. On this disc he commands a full and poignant tone, and his musicianship is superb. The inevitable Tauber record, prob ably from a European matrix, dou bles Stolz's waltz song Im Prater Bluh'n Wieder die Baume and Ich Lieb' Dich Doch, a sprightly fox-trot, accompanied by the ubiquitous Dajos Bela and his orchestra. These recent Tauber releases have been disappoint ing. The great tenor seems to sing no end of cheap stuff. Much of his work sounds careless and a little coarse. We wish Columbia would save him up for a couple of months and then let him do a series like the memorable Schubert 'Winterreise again. The magnificent Lotte Leh- mann puts him to shame with an old favorite of Hildach, Lenz, doubled with that same composer's Der Spiel- man. Last on the Columbia broad sheet is the little heard Leonore Over ture No. 1 of Beethoven, turned out smartly by Mengelberg and the Am sterdam Concertgebouw. Columbia has made a deal with the Gramophone Shop for the sale of 1 50,000 records at half-price. The choice bits from the Masterworks Series are offered in what would no doubt be called an inventory sale on State Street. You can write to the Gramophone Shop, New York City, for particulars. Victor's prize item for the month is the New York Phil harmonic-Sir Thomas Beecham record ing of Strauss's Don Quixote. This mammoth tone-poem, designed as a set of free variations on a Quixote theme, fills a huge gap in the cata logue of Strauss's recorded works. Along with Don ]uan and Till Ew lenspiegel, it has always struck us as the best of the Austrian's symphonic works. Victor furnishes excellent and meticulous program notes. The fre quent 'cello solo passages fall to Al fred Wallenstein, which may give the recording special interest for local discophiles. Another Musical Masterpiece item, in bound volume, is the rather incon sequential Mozart Concerto for Flute, Harp and Orchestra. The soloists are Marcel Moyse and Lily Laskine, and the orchestra is conducted by Coppola. Mozart wrote this fragile concerto as a piece of hack work for the Duke de Guines. The composer, an immortal of singular good taste, had little liking for the combination of solo instruments. But doubtless, business, when you're hungry, is busi ness. The work is graceful, and the andantino pleasantly melancholy. From Stokowski comes a ten-incher, the glorious prelude to the third act of Die Meistersinger. The renuncia tion theme of Sachs, the radiant cho rale, are interpreted with sober and steady hand by the brilliant leader and the Philadelphia Orchestra. A rare Wagnerian release. One Conrad Thibault, a baritone that we hadn't known about, sings Ireland's Sea Fever, a setting of the Masefield poem, and a coy character song by Geoffrey O'Hara called De Captaine of de Marguerite. Thibault has a fine, sturdy voice. Here's hop ing we hear him soon in something that gives it better employment. Victor follows the Chevalier press ing from Love Me Tonight with a hit song from that same movie, sung by Jeannette MacDonald. Isn't It Romantic belongs in your cabinet.

HARrison 10 6 0 IF you want it to rain, dash out to the garage and wash your car. And if you'd like to have stock car records broken, write at some length about the records that, at the time, were what is called present and, as Grimm (Wilhelm Karl, not Charlie) would say, lo and behold! somebody ups and breaks existing stock car records. Anyway, that's what has just hap pened to us. Last month we mention, in this department, and at some length, stock car records held by Studebaker. And it wasn't long be fore the news came in that Auburn had broken every former mark from one kilometer up to 500 miles. It was just last month. And on the heat-baked (ask some one who's been there) bed of Muroc Dry Lake in California, two strictly stock Auburn twelve cylinder cars swept the American Automobile Association slate clean of all stock car speed records from one kilometer to 500 miles and with a single stroke made themselves Champions of America. Both cars were Dual Ratio equipped. The performance smashed twenty- six speed records held by other makes of cars and set eleven new speed marks for distances for which previous records had never been established. Top speed for one mile was 100.774 miles per hour and the average speed for 500 miles was 88.9537 miles per hour. Official certification of the breaking of the twenty-six speed records and the establishing of the eleven new ones was made recently by represent atives of the Contest Board of the American Automobile Association. Although the runs were completed several days before, final results were withheld by the AAA. until all data had been carefully checked and confirmed at Washington. U LD records went toppling easily as the powerful 160- horsepower cars raced hour after hour through the blazing heat, end ing the runs in perfect condition and then duplicating the performance immediately in many instances for even better times. Two 12-cylinder, 160 -horsepower models were used, — a Brougham, which set the new closed car records, and a Speedster model, which broke all the previous open car records. Both models were strictly stock, taken off the regular factory production line at Auburn, Ind., by representatives of the A.A.A. and sealed for transit. They are exact duplications of similar models on Auburn dealers' showroom floors. In the terrific heat that settles on the bed of Muroc Dry Lake, for more than six hours Eddie Miller, driving a Speedster model, swept past the timer's stand on the ten-mile oval, ending the 500 miles at an average speed of 88.9537 miles per hour. Throughout the entire 500- mile grind stops were made only for gas and water, none for mechanical adjustments. In the closed car an average speed for 100 miles of 86.6856 miles per hour was made, easily bettering the old championship contender's record of 72.819 miles per hour. And for all we know some other motor car company may be breaking these records at this very minute. More than 23,000 miles through the trackless wilds of the African jungles without a major repair of any kind, is the latest achievement of a fleet of Willys- Overland cars and trucks, according to Martin Johnson, famous explorer and wild animal photographer. In his most recent safari into the jungles, which resulted in Johnson filming his great wild animal picture, Congortlla, the noted explorer and his wife, em ployed only products of Willys- Overland to transport their equip ment and members of the expedition to the haunts of the beasts. "As in our previous expeditions, we selected Willys-Overland cars and trucks for the reason that they have always proved to be the strongest and most dependable of any motor car for the rough usage we subjected them to," Mr. Johnson said. "Our last safari through Kenya, Tanganyika, Abyssinia, Uganda and the Congo was probably the most strenuous ever undertaken by motor car. We traveled more than 23,000 miles and not once did these Willys- Overland cars and trucks require any major repairs. I doubt if their per- formance could be equalled by any other motor car. We have one Willys-Overland car that we have used in our African expenditions for the past ten years and it is still giving excellent service. "Our two-ton Willys-Overland trucks should have been labeled four* ton for many times we packed from seven to eleven colored boys on top of that. At one time we took a crowd of pygmies on a ride through the Ituri forest in the Belgian Congo, and each car carried over 100 pas sengers. The cars were full and they were clinging to the top, sides and on the radiators." Responding to a widespread demand among Stude baker owners for selective additional equipment to meet a particular need or individual taste, Studebaker now offers a carefully selected line of use ful and decorative accessories espe cially adapted to its cars. Every motorist has his -own ideas on supplementary equipment for his car. His taste may run to something of a purely utilitarian nature, such as a heater or lap robe, or it may run to equipment 'which serves primarily as an enhancement to appearance. No matter what the requirement, Stude baker has provided accessories which meet good taste and sound practic ability. From tire covers to trunks, from rugs to radios, each accessory selected by Studebaker for its owners has had to survive the same careful scrutiny and inspection that Studebaker has always devoted to its own products. Each individual unit is rigidly checked as to materials, workman* ship, operating efficiency and all around quality, before being approved for use on Studebaker cars. 52 The Chicagoan Have You Ever Thought "J of Living at The Churchill ?

Evidence of this strict policy of proof before approval is provided by the Philco Transitone automobile radio recommended by Studebaker, and for which all Studebaker closed models are wired. For weeks and even months before a final decision was made, Studebaker technicians made a painstaking study of automobile radios of every type and description. Ultimately Philco Transitone was selected because of its many engineering advancements which make for superior tonal qual ity, crystal-clear reception and ability to stand up under even the severest motoring conditions. In like manner, all other Stude baker accessories, many specially de signed by Studebaker engineers, rep resent the ultimate in present-day value, and are best suited for installa tion on Studebaker cars. These include tire covers of dif ferent types, both fabric and metal, spot-lights, rear-view mirror and clock combinations, glass side wings, adjustable interior sun visor, salon horns, seat covers, handsomely fitted trunks in metal and leather; and such winter accessories as heaters, robes, footmuffs, radiator protectors; tire chains and windshield defrosters. Among unique accessories are an umbrella assembly which may be in stalled in a number of convenient places in the car, and a compact Eastman auto camera and case com bination for those who like to kodak as they go. The proper choice of supplemen tary equipment adds not only to the appearance of a car, but to motoring comfort and convenience as well. Factory-sponsored accessories such as Studebaker dealers everywhere have to offer provide Studebaker owners with complete protection and assur ance of the good taste, high-grade quality value which they expect.

And when, later on, Miss Lewis wishes to use St. Mary's material from the diarist Mrs. Jame son, she permits Mrs. Jameson to cross her pages in person. Actual Johnston letters also figure in the narrative. All of which matters of fact and of research Miss Lewis catches in a poet's web, which must, to be sure, approached with some concentration but is well worth the approach for anyone who has ever fallen under the spell of Indian arrow heads and old trails. 1 he first volume of James Truslow Adams' March of Democracy is out in time to put us in tune for the November elections. The second volume, covering our his tory from the Civil War to 193 3, is promised for a month before the in auguration. The form of narrative which first endeared Mr. Adams to the general reader in The Adams Family is of course not possible when time must be spanned from Colum bus to Lincoln and geography corre spondingly. But it is surprising how well he succeeds in giving the sense of individual persons and happenings and manners of life to a book whose chief hope of salvation must neces sarily lie in getting the philosophy, economics, and general trends straight. An achievement which is of course assisted considerably by the illustra tions.

Paris Canada '33 HARRIET MONROE, EDITOR OF The ls[ew Poetry, AN ANTHOLOGY, AND AUTHOR OF Poets and Their Arts Chicago quickens to '33. Chicago eyes caress the lake- front. Chicago ears tingle to the mounting din of men on the move. The world is coming to the Fair. As a mighty spectacle has mushroomed to magnificent maturity upon wastelands wrested from thwarted waters, so has an irresistible Town un leashed new, abundant vigor to duplicate its triumphs of '71 and '93. Fire nor water daunt Chicago. Nor depression nor despair. Chicago moves on, come fair weather come foul, impelled by nothing more understandable than Fate toward something as well dubbed Destiny. Chicago does not explain itself, perhaps does not know an ex planation. Chicago simply goes on being Chicago. It is enough. The Chicagoan goes on with Chicago. 54 The Chicagoan GOTHAM CORRESPONDENCE Brief Tidings and Personal Mention By Frederick Anderson NEW YORK.— Rents sure have come down in this town. Take your correspondent's case now: a six room apartment down in the lower Fifth Avenue neighborhood that used to fetch $3600 a year was offered to him at $2400. He turned right around and offered $1650 and he's going to get it at that and it seems like that's about all it's worth. These great big real estate brokerage offices have let everyone go but vice-presi dents and stenographers. Looks like it'll be another four years before any more apartment houses get built. * A delightful time was enjoyed by all at Baron Karanyi's party the other evening. Seemed like every time your correspondent put his foot out he stepped on a prince or an artist or Mrs. Giff Pinchot. Prince Liechten stein and wife was among those present. "What is this Liechenten- stein place?" I said to him; "Jack," we call him. He said it was called the Principality of Liechtenstein and was the smallest independent kingdom in Central Europe except San Marino and Monaco, whatever they are. Said it was twelve miles long and six miles wide and ten thousand folks live there. Said there was no public debt and there was quite a few hundred more men than women. I said that's fine. Seems like I remember hearing that Jack's family bought the king dom about 150 years ago. Makes kind of a nice thing to have in the home. * The boys down at the drug store are doing quite some talking about a new soft drink called 'Tampa." Seems it's made from a plant in South America called mate. Geo. Stearns at the drug store says this mate is the national drink of South America and all the gauchos drink it and they are about the hardiest men in the world and so it must be good. Says it has a little the effect of hard cider but doesn't make you feel awful afterwards. Says 25 mil lion people drink mate but it hasn't come to this country before and it seems kind of funny it hasn't. * Went to call on Wilt Jaffee in Great Neck out east of town last week-end and he sure did tell me a lot about clothes I didn't know before. Appears that men's clothes are going to be quite some different this fall and everyone will have to throw away their old suits. Wilt says that clothes will be soft and no padded shoulders and no cast iron look to the front and no wide lapels and no pinched waist. He kept talking about the "English drape" and says it will be very elegant with lower set coat col lar and high arm holes. He says this "English drape" only three tailors in this whole broad land of ours make, who are Roy of New Haven, Gray ii Lampel of New York and some fel low out in Hollywood. Says suits having this "English drape" — quite good ones — went on sale in New York and Chicago about the middle of September for 30 dollars. * Vince Youmans, who put on that elegant show, Hit the Dec\, way back in 1927, has been having quite some trouble all summer trying to get it revived, for this fall. Seems the orig inal cast have been saying they wouldn't take a cent under what they got in 1927 and Vince was up a tree. I heard Wednesday though that the cast had finally heard about the "depression" and would take less. All Vince needs now is just a little more capital. You got to hand it to Vince, because they say he's going to put on another show at the same time. George Fawcett, a stalwart citizen of this town and a mighty fine actor, has had to give up the movies alto gether because of being almost stone deaf and is in vaudeville. I heard Tuesday he was going to open soon in a new play. George, you sure have our best wishes. Well, a real funny thing has hap pened. About a year ago come Christmas your correspondent wrote a cocktail book which Haldeman- Julius, the Little Blue Book man, has been selling at 5c apiece. Well sir, he has so far sold 120,000 in this dry land of ours and claims he'll sell a million. But the real funny thing is that this book has sold best in Ala bama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Mississippi and Texas, and I had thought all along these were supposed to be dry states. * A right nice girl in the "movies" was telling me that Anna Sten has learned to speak English pretty good, at least well enough to get what she wants in the grocery store. Anna came over from Russia last year and the movie folks had the brass band out, but she couldn't say any English but O. K. so they kept her out of sight till now. Well, good luck, Anna. Ron Coleman is going to work on a new picture called The Masquerader which played in the opera house 20 years ago. * Allie Wrubel, who wrote those two mighty sweet songs, 7^.ow You're in My Arms and As You Desire Me, said the other day that the music publishers were pretty pleased about the new contract with the radio peo ple that's going to pay them 2 million this year, 4 next and 6 the next. Seems sheet music doesn't sell much any more. Good songs used to sell 800,000 to 1 million copies but now adays the average is 80,000 to 150,- 000. My Silent Love sold only 70,- 000, though When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain sold 500,000. Allie thinks ?<iot a Penny in Tour Poc\et may be a hit this fall and I sure hope so, because Allie wrote it. There's a song called Thrill Me in the new show, Ballyhoo of 1932, that's real nice, but Allie thinks maybe it's too complicated for some folks to hum. Seems that when Allie was just starting out writing songs he took a whole armful around to a publisher and they were pretty com plicated rhymes and sort of Gilbert and Sullivanish and the publishers said, "No, they are too uncommer cial." So Allie, pretty mad, sat right down and wrote a song called I Killed Myself Because of You and, of course, he was just kidding popular love songs.

He had a real nice painting in Cosmopolitan of September, 1931, showing a girl in bathing. When he came to draw the cover of Pictorial Review of July, 1932, it looks like he used the same photograph turned around. Of course, it isn't the same painting but about the only difference is that the girl is facing south in one and north in the other; and the Pictorial Review folks who pay him $1500 a cover are laughing out of the side of their mouth. * Well, you would of died laughing if you had driven around with me the other day in the new coach and pair the Dobbs folks have bought to de- liver their hats in the Fifties and Six ties. Our motorcycle escort had to go so slow they nearly fell off their motorcycles. This coach is an advef tising idea that drove full-grown from the brain of the advertising agency that handles the Dobbs account. Seems like a pretty good idea, but I guess it'll be quite some nuisance in a few weeks, tying up traffic and all. DINING In the Continental Manner (Begin on page 38) until very, very creamy and then beat some more. Add melted chocolate and beat until well mixed. Add egg yolks one at a time, beating each time until very fluffy. Grind almonds (preferably in special nut-grinder) and sift very fine. Sift bread crumbs and add to the mixture. Beat well. Beat egg whites until very dry and fold into the dough. Divide mixture into four parts. Bake three parts as separate layers and cool. When cold fill the layers with the unbaked part and frost with any chocolate icing you prefer. On a frosty autumn night the1 aroma of a cozy Italian cafe is enough to make one yowl with hunger.

Speaking of losses, we, as a community, have suffered this summer and will suffer this win ter, in the cultural, as well as the fashionable scheme of things, by the absence of the Ravinia and the Civic Opera companies. They are two local institutions that have always at tracted widespread attention, and everyone, from the young Italian bootlegger of a friend of mine, who knows the history of all the great singers, and who has never missed a perform ance at Ravinia when he was in town, to the most generous of guarantors, feels a genuine regret to have had them on the list of missing pleasures this year. In her quiet, efficient and always charming way, Mrs. Clyde Carr has done a great deal this summer to make up for the loss of other musical entertainments, by lending her beau tiful Lake Forest house on several occasions for morning musicales. Miss Janet Fairbank, Lee Pattison, Priscilla Carver and Elisabeth Heath are among those who have given con certs there. One of the many pleas ant daytime events in Lake Forest during Sep tember was the open meeting of the Garden Club held at Mrs. Augustus A. Carpenter's, when a hilarious little one act play written for the occasion by Mrs. Samuel T. Chase was pre sented by a skillful group of amateur actors, including Mrs. Ernest Kilroe, Mrs. Corson Ellis, Albert Pattou, Sam Otis, Lawrence Williams and Stuart Bailey. The piece was en titled Much Ado About Toothing (with apol ogies to Mr. Shakespeare, of course) and had to do with a modern husband and wife, a landscape architect, an inquisitive Irish maid and the ordering of a bird bath for a birthday surprise. Mrs. Chase has a great sense of humor and wields an extremely clever pen, so it was only natural that the assemblage of Garden Club members and their guests had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. When the author arose to take a bow, she modestly declared that any success the play might have had was due to the superb way in which it had been acted, and then added that she had a funny little story to tell of one of the events of rehearsal week. The play was given out on the terrace and in the garden at the Carpenters', and during the week preceding the performance, Mrs. Louis Laflin, whose grounds adjoin those of the Carpenters', had a house guest. One after noon the guest called out to her hostess in a highly excited voice, "Josephine, aren't Gus and Alice up in Michigan?" "Yes," replied Mrs. Laflin. "Why?"

For these are the gates of the Packard Proving Grounds. And the car that is passing through them is going to be deliberately destroyed. Packard engineers will take this car and give it every punishment they can devise. With sci entific thoroughness, they will torture it — strain every part, break it if they can. And they will do so with just one thought in mind — to learn how Packard quality can be still further advanced . For each new series of Packards must not only do better what other fine cars do well — it must also surpass previous Packard records. Today's Packard must be able to stand thou sands of miles of wide-open speed. Here at the Proving Grounds the world's fastest concrete speedway shows that it will. Today's Packard must provide arm-chair comfort under all con ditions. Here mile after mile of the cruelest roads ever contrived say it will. Power plant and chassis must be the strongest that can be built. Packard's man-made "desert" of track less sand proves they are. The motor — the quietest Packard ever designed — must remain quiet throughout its life. 50,000 miles of 24- hour-a-day driving show that it will. You will never subject the Packard you buy to such merciless usage. But Packard insists that each of its cars must have a reserve of stamina must be capable of heights of performance, fat beyond any ordinary needs. And so, upon these Proving Grounds, Packard does its own doubt ing — that there may be no doubt about the Packard you buy. Do these statements challenge belief? Gooi For you can prove them easily, and get tr. motoring thrill of your life in doing so. Vis your Packard showroom. Visit it whether y< are in the market for a new car or not.
