(Jiteaoo loiits on Qui to (Iff trie IfJotldx Sophisticated Chicagoans are plucking new thrills from the air waves . . . with a radio receiver that's a veritable "Magic Carpet." A twirl of the single tuning A dial of a SCOTT ALL-WAVE Deluxe RADIO takes the listener the wide world ^^ away to hear short wave broadcasts direct from London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Rome, or even far-off Australia. The Charming MODERNE An Adam Period Console For those who wish to fit a SCOTT ALL-WAVE Deluxe KADIO into a room of established period, Scott offers console models follow'ng the finest traditions of the cabinet mak ers' art. This delightful piece, o Adam design, is typical of many available types of artistic verisimili tude and correct acoustic uuality. Should foreign programs cease to appeal, this versatile radio offers new thrills in the reception of American programs on the regular broadcast band. There is fidelity of tone . . . freedom from the limitations of distance . . . power to choose exactly the station desired from the cluttered mass that's on the air . . . that is unique. And this dual ability ... to receive perfectly both short and long wave programs ...is available without inconvenience or a confusion of gadgets, tapped or plug-in coils, or a multiplicity of dials. It gives command of every entertainment within the entire range of 15 to 550 meters, including foreign programs, police calls, airplane telephony, amateur stations, domestic broadcasts, etc. Don't take OUR word for such remarkable performance. Accept, instead, the scientific findings of independent research laboratories. Be assured by our guar antee of consistent world-wide reception. Note that every oart of this receiver (excepting only tubes) is warranted against breakdown or service failure for five years, instead of only for the usual 90-day period. It might be expected that Scott laboratory-precise custom construction would command a prohibitively high price. Instead, its modest cost is a gratifying sur prise ... no more than many models of ordinary radios. See . . . and hear . . . for yourself! Our newly-opened Salon, where you may inspect SCOTT ALL-WAVE Deluxe RADIOS at your convenience, is reached easily by motor, bus, "L", surface car, or C. & N. W. Ry. suburban trains. E. H.

SUITE 500 PITTSFI ELD BUILDING May, 1933 11 265 Round America Tour — by train to New York, then by famous President Liner to California and back home by rail — from $2659 First Class. If you have ever traveled on President Liners — to the Orient or Round the World, you know what pleasure any voyage on these famed liners holds in store. But even those who know them best find unexpected thrills in this short trip. First Havana, and then the foreign cities at the Panama Canal delight the most sophisticated traveler. President Liner schedules are skillfully arranged to give you just the right amount of time in each . . . time for shopping and visiting, and the sports that won't leave land. (You can't have an honest-to-goodness golf course on a ship so President Liners stop to let you play!) Probably though, the most astonishing thing is the unmistakable flavor of real world travel these liners bring to this trip. There is a cosmopolitan atmos phere in drawing rooms and lounges that has been captured in the world's far places. Caught and held. The President Liner you board in New York will be either a Round the World liner or one in the Trans-Pacific service. And everything about your trip to Cali fornia will be in their well-known tradition. Public rooms are as charming as the charming people you find always there. Deck sports facilities are varied and there is an outdoor swimming pool on every one of these ships. All President Liner staterooms are outside, large and airy— with deep springed beds, nicely conceived appointments . . . Neither last nor least, the cuisine is excellent - the variation in the menus infinite. SaiL any week from New York — Stopover as you please, continuing on the next or another of these liners. Or if you prefer, go by train to California, then return home by President Liner (and by rail from New York). First Class fares are as low as $265, Tourist $220 — hometown to hometown. President Liner services include weekly sailings to the Orient and Round the World, via Hawaii and the Sunshine Route, from New York and California; and via the Short Route from Seattle. Fortnightly sailings from San Francisco and Los Angeles to New York. Any travel agent will gladly make all arrangements for any President Liner trip.

Vo&ah Gtsau^fnsi H Q NO D QwcDtixxm WlalUfuAi 12 The Chicagoan Eight bells sound his daily festival . . . the whistle booms ... the lifted sextant glitters on the bridge. And so, with games and ancient mysteries, far-darting Apollo is adored. Votaries wrapped in steamer rugs lift up their faces to the Great God Tan. Prodigies of skill are performed at deck- tennis and shuffleboard. Everything glis tens, everything glows with light. An ancient fabulist once wrote: Nothing is more useful than the sun and salt. Cer tainly nothing is more healthful than the sunshine and salt-sea-air, so attractively available on a French Line crossing. Sun- decks are unencumbered by ventilators, hatch covers, winches, or other gear. Ex perienced stewards (who speak English, of course) are at hand to help with trap- shooting, archery, horse racing, and tennis tournaments. Every opportunity is offered for working up a whale of an appetite for that world-famous French Line cooking. Children find the facilities for play most intriguing on France-Afloat. They have a special dining-room, a nursery, and all kinds of amusing entertainment (facts which cheer the heart of every parent). And the Scotty or the Peke need not be left at home, for the French Line is well known for its care of household pets. . . . All of which (rather obviously) builds up the suggestion that, when you cross the Atlantic this summer, you go via the French Line. Any travel agent will be glad to help you (without charge) in making your plans. French Line, 19 State Street, New York. 'Sfreneh.

May, 1933 19 EN AVIO PERFUME BY CHICAGOAN Farewell to Ballyhoo /T,HIS is written on the night of May 7. President Roosevelt, "*¦ addressing himself to the citizens for the second time since his inauguration, has said, among other things, "We can not ballyhoo ourselves back to prosperity," to which a sad, tired man in Palo Alto must have breathed an honest "Amen." The President has said a good many other things, all pertinent to the economic state, none of them difficult to understand. His address is clear, sincere, informal. The citizens know precisely what he intends to do and they have had eight weeks in which to learn that he is a man of simple statement, direct means, immediate action. The country has become a better place since his initial employment of the microphone. A lesser executive, a shallower man, could dramatize the advance that has been made and sell himself to the people at any price he chose to name. Mr. Roosevelt, instead, quotes his revered namesake's stated ambition to be right seventy-five per cent of the time. A month ago we stated at the top of this page, "The New Deal suits us down to the ground," going on from there to announce certain departures from Chicagoan practice which, we are pleased to report, have been enthusiastically received by our small public. This month we reaffirm that statement. We have the feeling that we do so in unison with some hundred and twenty million other citizens of the Republic. Welcome, World rT1WENTY days from tonight the President Will arrive in "*• Chicago to open A Century of Progress Exposition. Today fifty thousand persons paid admissions to the Fair grounds, un- able longer to restrain their interest in the colorful proceedings going on behind its low, provocative walls. Not less than ten times that number, and probably twenty, will be on hand May 27. Make no other appointments for that day, and get that spare room in order at once. There is to be visited upon Chicago this summer such an orgy of visiting as never was on land or sea. We have the weather man's word for it that the day will be fair. Further, the five months of the Exposition will be better than average Chicago summer weather, which is better than any other on this hemisphere. The weather bureau has crowded its rains, chills and clouds into a spring explainable on no other grounds. Nothing but balmy breezes, blue skies and starry nights, against which the Urbanesque coloring of the Fair buildings is at its effulgent best, remain in the bag. We have Mr. Milton S. Mayer's word for it that the average number of visits by natives of the community to the World's Fairs of the past has ranged from ten to fifteen. We have the evidence of our senses to prove that nobody with merely human legs, eyes and endurance can possibly see all that is to be seen on the lakefront in less than twice that number. It is little wonder, then, that concern has been expressed regarding the proposed thirty-hour week. It's going to be pretty hard, this summer, to find that many hours for work. That World's Fair Book TN direct defiance of our confident statement in the April number, the artisans engaged in production of The Chica- GOAN World's Fair Book announce June 1 as the official publi- cation date thereof, dangling the bare possibility of May 27 delivery before our eyes as a sop to our pride. To those of you, therefore, who have entered orders for copies of the first printing, the one to hand on to your heirs, we are forced to make apology. Like us, you will have to wait until the manu facture is completed. We hope you will share our opinion that it is better so, the hairs, after all, being entitled to the best that we can give them. The reasons for this delay are elementary. Mr. Miller's camera, in all its prodigious competency, cannot photograph a building until it has been builded. Mr. Mayer's typewriter, for all its wonder working power, cannot report a fact before it has been consummated. We bow, therefore, to Time, if not Tide, and counsel patience. As the masters of the Fair have so conclusively demonstrated, what's worth doing is worth doing well. Impending Pleasures A CENTURY OF PROGRESS EXPOSITION shall have **¦¦*• been in operation some ten days or two weeks when the June issue of The Chicagoan arrives to gladden the festive scene. In it Messrs. Mayer and Miller will continue their chronicle of course. This installment, the eighth, ought not to be missed, completing as it does a faithful and detailed account of the undertaking. We don't know everything else that will be in the June number — we like to be a little indefinite about the future, don't you? — but we can tell you about three of its features that are even now in printed form, awaiting inclusion. Henry Justin Smith, whose book on the past century of Chicago we recently had the pleasure of recommending to you, has written for us a highly amusing and no less informative article entitled Around the Town in 1883 wherein, parodying the style of various local columnists, he brings the Chicago of fifty years ago to life in terms of today's papers. Gabriel Over Orchestra Hall js, we think, the funniest and smartest article to come from the nimble typewriter of Richard ("Riq") Atwater since his last one, which is always the dis tinguishing characteristic of an Atwater manuscript. Meet the Animals, with which Ruth G. Bergman continues her tireless exploration of Chicago for Chicagoans, reveals an unpublicized ninth or tenth wonder of the world about which we have no wish to tip off the reporters by premature announce ment. It is a little unorthodox to suggest editorially that a copy of the June issue or a subscription to The Chicagoan is among the items no modern bride is complete without, but we have never held editorial ethics above service and it's late to begin. Incidentally, we stand back of every magazine we sell.

SEE THE CAR THAT IS THE NORTH SHORE'S FAVORITE! FOR years Chicago's North Shore suburbs have shown their belief in Packard's superi ority by buying almost as many Packards as all other fine cars combined! This year Packard's superior ity is even more marked. This year Packard leads the fine car field on all four counts — Beauty, Performance, Comfort, Long Life. Whether you have any inten tion of buying a car immediately or not, see the new 1933 Pack ards at your nearest Packard dealer's. Then drive one of these cars over some road you know by heart. Compare it, mile for mile, curve for curve, rut for rut, with the finest automobile perform ance you have ever known before. Then put all the other fine cars over the same course and com pare them with Packard. Do this — and we believe that your next car will unquestion ably be the car the North Shore so overwhelmingly prefers — PACKARD! PACKARD MOTOR CAR COMPANY OF CHICAGO Consult the Packard listing in your telephone directory for the nearest branch or dealer 22 The Chicagoan Chicagoana // Seems that There Is Going to Be a World's Fair Conducted by Donald Plant ANY number of World's Fair items, and r^k many of them interesting, seem to have drifted in over our broken (it can't be closed) transom and settled on our stained, battered, cigarette-butt-burned desk in not very orderly piles. If it hadn't been Spring, if the Kentucky Derby hadn't been coming up, if the local racing courses hadn't opened, if the dog hadn't needed stripping, if the Loop's legitimate marquees hadn't started lighting up, if the Fair Grounds hadn't been taking on new life so rapidly, we might have got through them all in a less hit-or-miss fashion. But we veer. Any number of World's Fair items, and many of them interesting, seem to have drifted over our transom. They are more or less side lights that "Fairgrounds" Mayer couldn't quite handle, or so he said. And so they accumulated on our desk, and into these pages they go — some of them — for after all, this is not unlike a "Things Our Dog Brought Home" department. Out in the General Motors Building on the Fair Grounds have been placed some most excellent paintings and wood carvings done by a couple of local boys — Carl Hallsthammar, the sculptor, and Axel Linus, the painter. These two Swedish- American artists have typified at last the craftsmen of the country's largest industry, automobile manufacturing, in six life-size wood carvings and painted backgrounds. The carved figures, in the unique rough finish characteristic of Hallsthammar's work, are cut with chisel and mallet from huge blocks of laminated pine and painted in life like colors. They are regarded as unusually true to life by those familiar with the auto mobile factory operations in which they are depicted. The two artists studied workmen on the job in General Motors factories in Michigan and completed the sets here in the George Wittbold studios from sketches and photographs. Behind each of the carved figures as they are arranged in the Entrance Salon of the G. M. Building is a background scene, painted on a panel twelve feet high, showing the tasks performed by these workmen and the machinery at which they work. The panels, done by Linus, and figures are so arranged that each figure fits naturally into the back ground. The sets show a foundry workman, a crankshaft man, another inspecting cylinder bores, one grinding cylinder blocks, one fender workman and one building the bodies. Hallsthammer was born in Wasteras, Sweden. During the nine years that he has been in this country he has established a reputation as one of the leading artists in his line. He began carving wood at the age of seven, although his father urged him to take up some useful trade instead of wasting his time cutting out meaningless baubles. It was over parental objection that he went to study with the famous Swedish artist, Anders Zorn. On arriving in the States he experienced no little difficulty in placing his work and was for a time tempted to take a job in a furniture factory, but the breaks came and within a few years his wood carvings caught the popular fancy and brought many demands for exhibitions. He won national attention in 1927 with a carving entitled The Jun\ Man. Another of his works which earned widespread com mendation is called The Church Collection. This depicts three parsimonious parishioners endeavoring to ignore the collection basket. His carvings have been exhibited at the Metro politan Museum of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles Museum, Dayton Art Institute, the State Museum at Springfield, Illinois and the Gottenburg Museum in Sweden. Linus was born in Ofebro, Sweden. He studied in Stockholm and Paris, came to the United States in 1920 and has painted por traits of a number of notable Americans, in cluding Carl Sandburg, Professor Frederic Starr of the University of Chicago, Professor Frederic B. Crossley of Northwestern Uni versity and members of the Mandel family in Chicago. Among his outstanding works are the murals for the Viking Temple, Chicago, and a painting for the Gethsemane Evangel ical Church, also here. Woman's College Board XX7ITH the idea in mind of being of service during the Fair a new organization has just been founded — one which will indubitably have quite an influence in the future cultural life of the Town. This is the Woman's Col lege Board with representatives from nineteen "DE ROD POCKET STILL JAMS A LITTLE!" women's colleges: Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Connecticut, Elmira, Goucher, Lake Erie, Mills, Milwaukee-Downer, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe, Randolph-Macon, Rockford, Smith, Sweet Briar, Trinity, Vassar, Wheaton (Mass.), Wellesley and Wells. Officers of the group are Mrs. Hasell Howells, executive chairman, Mrs. Elmer T. Stevens, vice-chairman, Miss Alice Barlar, secretary and Miss True Kimball, treasurer. Through the courtesy of the publishers of Time and Fortune, space has been given to the Board in their building. Here the Board will have a large, air-cooled room with easy chairs, lamps, tables and magazines from every repre sentative publisher in the world. In one corner will be the headquarters of the Board's secre tary who will maintain a card index of all visiting alumnae and undergraduates of the above colleges, with name, Chicago address, telephone number, length of visit and like information. Hostesses from the member colleges will be present' at all hours' of the day, to welcome and help guests, giving and receiving messages and otherwise being of service. A permanent secretary will also be on hand to give out catalogues, pictures and specific information about these outstanding women's colleges. The Board is making plans to incorporate for service following the Fair, in order that Chicago may have a permanent organization to act as a hostess committee for college offi cials and to cement contacts among women college alumnae. Road Map HpHIS sort of thing really belongs, at least ¦*¦ we feel it does, in the automobile depart ment. But during the month of April our motor editor spent most of his time on the rail at Churchill Downs clocking them — not at all a part of his editorial job. But this map happens to be the Official Road Map for A Century of Progress, and the only one, because on the front cover it carries the official Fair endorsement over Rufus Dawes' signature. It's a progressive type map with a succession of enlargements, each going into greater detail as the motorist approaches the more congested areas. The map was prepared by the Goes Litho graphing Company of Chicago and contains a great deal of information not found on other road charts. For instance, there are fourteen Official Highway Systems adopted by the Fair people and a special road-marking emblem for each highway. The map tabs each road with the emblem and carries illus trations of the route signs. The emblems are pretty colorful, we under stand, and easily spotted. The Aero Route (and we don't mean the nutritious starch) emblem is a plane in flight, black on a blue background. The Agricultural Route is May, 1933 23 marked by a man plowing, blue on light blue. The Automotive Route a red mounted tire on green; Fort Dearborn Route a brown block house on violet; Communication Route violet telephone poles and wires on blue; and so on through the other routes which happen to be Electrical, Illumination, Industrial, Interna tional, Marine, Midway, Radio, Railroad and Science. Each route, you have probably de cided by this time, being symbolic of A Cen tury of Progress. It's a most excellent map. Touch /~\NE of our operatives, while having his ^-* shoes shined, was entertained by a dis cussion of the fineness of the sense of touch by his shine boy and the owner of the parlor. The proprietor was playing around with the money in the cash drawer and claiming that he could tell the denomination of any coin merely by feeling it. That boast led to others. Finally the shine boy said, "Dose ain't nothin'. Nothin' atall. Fella name Ed Humphries I know has the greatest sense o' touch I ever see. We was porters on the Santa Fe, an' I was on my first run wiff Big Ed. An' one night I woke up in the middle of the night an' got wonderin' where was we. So I says to Ed; 'Ed, where we at?' An' Big Ed jes' stick his han' outen de winda an' pull it in an' says; 'We goin' through Topeka.' " Turf Notes TT looks like a grand racing season around these parts, and not very many weeks will pass before racing stables will begin to ship in their prides. Under state laws there may be racing with pari-mutuel betting from May 1 to November 1. They are running out at Aurora this spring after all, and also at Sportsmen's Park, that little half-mile wheel out west. Both opened the season on May 1 and continue till May 20, and later, during the last two weeks in October, close the season with a meeting. The National Jockey Club 'WHY MR. VAN EUYTEN, WE THOUGHT YOU WERE ONLY JOKING WHEN YOU SAID YOU HAD A JOB!" people at Sportsman's are not affiliated with the Illinois Turf Association. Below are the racing dates for the courses that are affiliated with that important body: Washington Park, May 22 to June 10, 18 days. Lincoln Fields, June 12 to June 24, 12 days. Arlington Park, June 26 to July 29, 30 days. Hawthorne, July 31 to Sept. 2, 30 days. Lincoln Fields, Sept. 4 to Sept. 23, 18 days. Washington Park, Sept. 25 to Oct. 14, 18 days. Sheet Shooting \T7E'VE gone out of our two or three beaten ways and learned something about Skeet Shooting, because so many people are talking it or about it, and because we're not essentially a fielder-and-streamer. Skeet is a variation of clay-bird or trap shooting and, they who know tell us, a far more fas cinating sport. There is really no direct rela tion between the two sports, except a similar ity of equipment— clay birds, shotguns, shells and traps. It is much more informal and social than trapshooting. Squad members are permitted to talk, a strict taboo in trapshoot ing and, because an event takes much more time, there is a lot of gossip, ribbing, gun-talk and camaraderie. The Skeet lay-out is a half-circle, forty yards in diameter. At each point of the diameter is a traphouse. The trap in the one to the left throws the bird from a height of ten feet directly over the tower at the right. The trap in that tower throws the bird from a height of three feet directly over the lefthand trap-house. The traps are set and fixed to put their birds fifteen feet above the ground at the half-way point of the diameter. At the left- hand traphouse is station number one (there are eight in all). Station Two is about ten yards along the semi-circle, Station Three about ten yards farther around and so on with Station Seven located at the righthand trap- house. Station Eight is the center of the diameter, twenty yards from each traphouse and from each of the other stations. A box of twenty-five shells is an event or round. The shooter, loading a shell at a time, takes his position at Station One, at the higher trap- house, calls for the trap to be pulled, then raises his gun and fires one shot at the bird going out of that traphouse. He reloads, calls for a bird, and fires another shot at the incom ing bird thrown from the lower traphouse at Station Seven. When each member of the squad of five has fired, they move to Station Two — and so on around the semi-circle. When the eight pairs of single shots have been fired, the squad returns to Station One for the doubles. With two shells loaded in his gun, each member steps to the post in turn and both traps are sprung at once, one bird in coming, the other going away from the shooter. The shooter must try to break both before either reaches tHe boundary marked by the front of the opposite traphouse. The squad then moves to Station Two and from there clear around to Station Six and then Station Seven. After action at that post, each mem ber has fired eight pairs of singles and four pairs of doubles for a total of twenty-four shells, and has one shell left for an optional shot — to be made from any post at which the shooter may desire to stand. 24 The Chicagoan The most important variation of Skeet from trapshooting is that the gun must not be raised from a specified field position till the •bird is seen in the air. And the referee has sharp eyes. There are innumerable reasons for the rap idly rising popularity of Skeet. It gives excel lent practice for the field, and while not every field gun makes a good Skeet gun, every Skeet gun may be used in the field, and to advan tage. And it is an inexpensive sport, one that does not require a big outlay for equipment. It is the closest thing that can be provided by artificial targets to upland shooting. There are several Skeet layouts in the met ropolitan area. Onwentsia has one, although not in use at the present. The new Lincoln Park layout is very fine. There is the North west Gun and Skeet Club and the Elmhurst Gun Club has a Skeet layout, too. The sport is sweeping the country and you'll be hearing a lot more about it. The Jolly Friars /"""¦OMES May and comes the annual Black- X^J friars production at Mandel Hall out on the University of Chicago campus. It's always been that way. And it's always fun, regardless of the histrionic ability of actors and playwrights. The show this year is tagged Gypped in Egypt, a musical comedy written by John Halloway and Charles Newton, Jr., seniors at the University. The plot has to do with the adventures of a group of students sent to Egypt by the University to locate the stone of "kiss." The discovery of the stone means the winning of a five million dollar prize, and because Old A. M. is nearly bank rupt, it is imperative that the expedition find the stone before a similar gang from North western University locates it. Nearly one hundred men will take part in the show, including a cast of twenty-five, a chorus of thirty-two and a glee club of about thirty-five. The Blackfriars organization is, of course, composed entirely of men, and part of the cast and more than half of the chorus will consist of charming and feminine-appearing gals — as charming and feminine as raw-boned, hairy students can be. 'Brahms Festival 1V/JLJSIC patrons of the city will find on the campus of the University of Chicago during the last week of May one of the major musical events of the year when University students and eminent guest artists unite to present a three-day Brahms Festival in observ ance of the hundredth anniversary of this great composer's birth. This is the only Brahms Festival to be given in the city this spring. Claire Dux, soprano, who has recently re turned from a most successful tour of Ger many, and Egon Petri, pianist of world fame, will be the outstanding soloists of the spring Festival, which will also feature the hundred piece University of Chicago Symphony Or chestra, the University Choir, the Student Chorus, and the great organ of the University Chapel. Carl Bricken, professor of music at the Uni versity of Chicago, will direct the orchestra during the three Festival concerts, while Cecil Michener Smith will lead the University Chorus and Mack Evans will direct the Uni versity Choir. Both men are members of the Music Department of the University. "OH, BUT YOU'RE TOO MODEST— WHY THE THINGS I'VE SEEN YOU DO WITH A JAVELIN!' The Brahms Festival, coming at the end of the Department of Music's second year at the University of Chicago, culminates a period of crowded activity and astonishing growth of this new University department. In October, 1931, Carl Bricken, chairman of the depart ment, issued a call to all students interested in playing in a symphony orchestra. So en thusiastic was the response that before the end of the year Professor Bricken was able to present the Orchestra in a full-length sym phonic program. Since that time, the Orches tra has presented four concerts in Mandel Hall. Jor Visiting Golfers /"OFFICIAL greeters to a half million golfers! That is the job selected for themselves by a group of men headed by Harry E. Radix, Charles A. Nash and the owners of indepen dent daily fee golf courses in the Chicago area. Mr. Radix is president of the Chicago District Golf Association. Mr. Nash is president of the Chicago Daily Fee Golf Association. The group have set themselves to these tasks: 1. Informing the nation that Chicago is offering them the best there is in golf. 2. Extending a personal greeting to every golfer coming into the city during A Century of Progress. 3. Making the golfing days of each visitor inter esting and worth while. 4. Throwing open to the World's Fair visitors the facilities and privileges of every possible course in the area. The first step in their job was the establish ment of A Century of Progress Golf Regis tration Bureau. In the bureau, on the fifteenth floor of the Lytton Building, 14 East Jackson Street, in downtown Chicago, has been assem bled complete information on each of the 220 golf courses in the district. Stephen Ladd is operating director of the project. Director Ladd and his assistants, a dozen or more lads and lassies of the fairways, have at their finger tips up-to-the-minute information on all courses, private and public; routes; extra facilities, such as swimming pools, horseback riding, tennis courts and archery; guest rates; and the standards of cuisine. The service department of the central bureau in the Lytton Building, and in each of the branches, is also equipped to reserve time for golfers and sell greens fee tickets to most of the 220 courses. Here also tournaments are booked for convention groups and associations coming to hold their annual meetings and to attend A Century of Progress in a body. Full arrangements are made to take ten to five hundred persons to either a private or public club to play golf, tennis or ride, providing also for their lunch and dinner and their bridge in the evening. May, 193 3 25 The Best Dressed Woman in America MRS. FREDERIC McLAUGHUN, WHO RECENTLY RE TURNED TO THE STAGE IN A PLAY GIVEN IN BEHALF OF "ORPHANS OF THE STORM," IN AN EARLY POSE BY MATZENE. THE PHOTOGRAPH AT RIGHT WAS MADE THE DAY AFTER HER FIRST HAIR CUT, A BOARD ING SCHOOL EPISODE MENTIONED IN HER ARTICLE ON THE OPPOSITE PAGE, AN UNSUNG SHORTENING PREDATING HER DANCING CAREER AND THE SHEAR ING OF HER REGROWN GLORY IN WHAT BECAME THE IMPERISHABLE CASTLE BOB Nothing New Under the Sun Pointed Paragraphs on Personal Popularity By Irene Castle McLaughlin TOO often — in fact, without exception — the minute someone makes a hit with a new step, a new style of hat, a new tune, or what have you, up pops some kill-joy with the announce ment that he or she did, or were or wrote, the same thing way back when. I've never known it to fail. The obscure or faintly known must climb on the band wagon, if they can still raise a limb, or a voice to protest their ingenuity. For instance: Recently I saw in O. O. Mclntyre's column that Benny Field claimed the crooning title, or at least the birth of it. Odd thing to boast about, but there you have it. The public has lent a sympathetic ear to crooners, and so up bobs the guy who gave all the crooners their recipe for yodeling. If nose rings gained popularity because Marlene Dietrich wore one (and couldn't look badly in anything) up would jump some belle of the Ugandi and scream her head off because she thought of it first! Everytime anyone credits me with the present short hair situation Mary McCormick and Lillian Russell's daughter ring for a reporter and give out a long statement, weighted down with dates and witnesses, proving (at least to themselves) that they cut their hair off, long before I was born. Well, I always like that one. It flatters me. I've reached an age where I'll trade fame for years, on any subject! As a matter of fact, it's impossible to believe that there have not been hundreds — even thousands — of cropped heads before mine. Some women may have cut their's off, as I did at school, in order to dry it quickly. I had a vacant period between classes, each morning, and wanted to swim in the gym's pool. This was all accomplished by shearing my "crowning glory" so that it would dry before my next class — and this, all at the tender age of fifteen. The minute a creative inventor produces a new farm implement, a combination mustache cup and laundry bag, or an architect settles back with satisfaction at what he claims to be a brand new doorway, or secret exit, some archaeologist blows in from the wine cellars of Pompeii with the news that they had the same thing in them thar Cities way back before the Seabury-Walker scrap, and he has pictures to prove it! Have you ever got really sold on a new tune that someone didn't tell you it was T^earer My God To Thee with variations, and very few variations at that? When we first launched a step that the public dubbed The Castle V>Jal\ Leon Errol reared his comic head and said he and the Mrs. had been doing that one since they first toddled onto a stage in Bug Tussle, Texas. It all comes down to two wise conclusions: (1) there really isn't anything, completely, new beneath the sun, and (2) it isn't so much the person who first does or says anything as the person who first "introduces" the stunt or quotes the brilliant originator, at just the right moment, who walks off with the honors. With apologies to the originators, who I know are going to slay me for this next crack, it's a far more important and flattering thing to possess enough magnetism and shall we say personality — Yes, we shall! — to get the public to stand up to a man, woman and child, and follow you, than to invent or originate a fad. I might add it's more profitable, too, 'cause then think what your endorsement of brassieres and stomach pumps can run into! Fr'nstance, Clifton Webb has made a lot of men (who shouldn't) follow his lead on Pea Jackets. I know he wasn't the first to launch this abbreviated form of formal dress — Vernon wore a divine little bottle green mess jacket in the last act of Watch Tour Step — and the only reason I can see for his not making them popular at that time is that, before prohibition, figures weren't what they are today. Then, too, men were more conservative in dress, in those days. Why, when I first met Vernon, he used to take a beating a day for wearing a wristwatch! Now, with pink under- panties for men, blue crash lounging pajamas, for afternoon wear, and berets worn even with a beard, no man need shy away from those cunning little monkey jackets that look so beguiling on Clifton. I don't care who says they wore a Dutch bonnet before I did (centuries of Dutch lassies could) or carried a monkey, or shrugged a high shoulder while dancing (Bessie McCoy did that, and gave me the idea), or wore Scotch caps, or danced with the Prince of Wales, I know there's one thing no dancer is going to claim having done first, or more of, than I — and that's dog-catching! I bet I've washed and fed more dogs than any other ball-room dancer of my time. There — let that crown go unchallenged — if it can! May, 1933 27 "I LOVE A PARADE" THE SONG IS HARRY RICHMAN'S, BUT THE SENTIMENT AND THE DRAWING ARE SANDOR'S, WHOSE STUDIO IN THE AUDITORIUM TOWER MAKES HIM WITNESS TO ALL AND SUNDRY MARCHINGS OF MEN, WOMEN AND CHIL DREN, NOT TO MENTION CIRCUS FOLK AND PAYLESS PUBLIC SERVANTS, ALONG AND ATHWART BROAD MICHIGAN BOULEVARD. A TAPESTRY OF RECENT CAVALCADES SHOWING HOW IT ALL LOOKS TO A MAN UP A TOWER "The Post" in the Old Days A Reminiscent Word on Chicago Journalism I WORKED on the Chicago Evening Post from 1906, I think, to 1910 or 191 1. And as I looked at the obituary notices of it that Jewell Stevens sent to me, what struck me most was the cold grey oblivion that seems to have settled on our period of the Evening Post. Why, the very names of the most in teresting people on it were barely remembered, or not even remembered. A crowd of names come into my own mind out of that distant era that means little to later comers and yet that should not be forgotten. There was Miss Emma Paulding Scott, the society editor, with her high nose and her Southern accent, who appropriately lived at the Virginia Hotel. Yes, the day I hit Jerome, the office-boy, Miss Scott spoke up on my be half and allowed I could not have done it except under provocation. She alone could save me from the penalties of a gross breach of the peace. Miss Scott wrote dry, little, sought-after, paragraphs. She gave the whole paper its parchemin. Tiffany Blake and Roswell Field were writ ing the editorials at the time I came, Roswell Field going and I coming. Also MacEachran, if I know how to spell it, who could be counted on to do the laudatory, must-be-done editorials. MacEachran had a bush of white hair, a noble Peruna-ed head, a pink skin, a flood of senti mentality, a cold Scotch eye. We, the intel lectual prigs, looked down on Mac. But we needed him, to do the greasy paragraphs when we were standing up for Emma Goldman. Otto McFeely, socialist, was one of the bright spots. He twinkled like a squirrel. He was neat, quick, with a brown gleam of humor and a limpid faith in Karl Marx. Yet he had followed the brass bands and enlisted in the Spanish-American war! Charley Hallinan was his pal, and Floyd Dell was Hallinan's pal. Floyd Dell was a latecomer to the paper with friendly visits from soft-smiled George Cram Cooke. Dell had arrived from Davenport, Iowa, where he had pulled candy in a factory. He had read Lewis Morgan. He was an ex cellent worker, though not without latent sus picion and class hostility. He came down tri umphant one morning with a small book into which he had pasted the excerpts of Paradise Lost that he had finally decided were worth preserving. Percy hammond sat in a sunless booth, knee- deep" in press photo graphs, curved as a Budda, leaning a weary head on his left hand and drawing each word in his copy as if he were in a slow-motion film. A stream of mysterious agents, the secret serv ice of the theatre, would come up to this boutique.

He was a great asset to the paper. Our typographical and photographical Napo leon. Percy Hammond was able to flick Charley Frey or anyone else. He praised Montgomery and Stone for their triumph in those parts of the dialogue that employed words of one syllable. This caused a stirring scene one night in the College Inn. But in Percy we had the touch we needed — the touch of a Bohemia within the Loop, a life of passing shows and flashing legends, warm, reckless, laughing. When Jack Barrymore played in a musical comedy, and crooned in a fashion twenty years too soon, we went to see him time after time, and there was even a radiant glimpse of Ethel Barrymore. In the composing room I recollect Lou Webb, Joe Hurley and Tom Wilson, a very tall Yankee who dragged his long feet, with a face like Ghandi. Lou Webb had a pained, patient smile. Joe Hurley was a solid, grumpy, warm-hearted chap whom it was good to work with. But the foreman, another Wilson, had a cutting tongue. Once, when I was late with copy (and I was always late with it), he looked at me saying, "The man who never makes good!" It would be a 3,000 word re view, and I would have begun reading my book at eight p.m., finishing the review by five or six in the morning. A final rush to revise it would cause the delay. Well, perhaps the review was worth it. But Lou Webb, who cut the copy into "takes," was ready to stretch a point if possible. He had a nervous laugh, his face shining green-yellow up into his bald ness under the lamp over his tall desk. Eddie westlake wrote a whole page on the San Francisco disaster when the first wire flashed in the news, three lines long. Eddie wrote all the sporting news, reams of it, every day. He had a wall-eye. He'd come into our office in his shirt sleeves, handing an eye-dropper to MacEachran and, turning up his rubicund face, would say "Feed my lambs, feed my sheep." Poor fellow, the last time I saw him he had shrunken. The resilient sporting editor had become plaintively meek and thin. In the window "on the desk" there was Joe Sheahan, competent and a bit crabbed. He wrote Officer Casey, an imitation of Mr. Dooley. Walter (City Editor) Washburne, on the contrary, was like a blond Chesterton. Teddy Payne — Will Payne's brother — was there and W. O. Chapman, grey-faced, with deeply scarred cheeks and a rough, shy utter ance. Genial they were, easy-going, gruff, and all with a certain awkward fraternity. My part, anyway, was awkward. I was still rather an alien. Herbert Mulford did the financial news. He was a voluble, friendly youth with a style of his own, and probably more aware of the rea sons for the existence of the Evening Post than most of us. Our Washington man, Edward B. Clark, was an aristocrat in temperament. He had been to West Point. In Boston he had known John Boyle O'Reilly and he had drunk a whole evening with Oscar Wilde — "O'Reilly, are there three statues of Napoleon on that shelf there?" Ed Clark told a story of Jake Smith under investigation from the Philippines — "Why, General Smith, did you give them the water-cure?" "Why?" roared the outraged general, "they stole my mules.'" The straight precise walk of Ed Clark, the gentle speech, the rather disarming and evasive character, left an impression of complete charm. He had a grey moustache, and an eye in which there was a wise wistfulness. C^ueer shadows flit from downstairs, where David E. Town, the business manager, was the ogre of the business office. He wore a derby hat squarely planted on his broad head, and lived in a dungeon in behind the office of the Irish cashier, and of Miss Malone at the telephone. Kitty Malone, was it not? I used to worry about her teeth. I was living at Hull House, and my sociology began with dentistry. She tolerated it. Tiffany Blake went to the Tribune and Julian Mason got his job as chief editorial writer. I worked under him. Julian was a dapper Yale man, with the best polished hair in Chicago. The first day I was sitting, mis erable and out of place in the office, a fledgling reporter, he came over with the smile of a host and asked me if I had a typewriter. He made me at home. I remember that old Yost typewriter. Julian's strut, his gay little man ner, and the bright security of his necktie, did much to make me cheerful. The benevolence of Tiffany Blake was the enduring help. I only remember one row, when I spoke up for Nietzsche and was told that "no one who ad mires Nietzsche ought to be working on the Evening Post." Tiffany then adored Words worth. He spoke of Wordsworth with burn ing, reverential eyes. With a kind of cathe dral solemnity, as if he were breathing of the Holy Grail. Then Tiffany went to Mexico for his health, and we learned for the first time of Chihuahua.

THE OPTIMISTS' PONIES WERE BROUGHT TO CHICAGO ON A SPECIAL CAR ATTACHED TO THE SMART VANDERBILT SPECIAL. FRANK BERING, HERB LORBER AND JAMES HANNAH OF THE CHICAGO RIDING CLUB TEAM, "B" CHAMPIONSHIP WINNERS. CAPTAIN D. W. McGOWAN OF THE I I2TH FIELD ARTILLERY OF TRENTON. N. J., PLAYED A GREAT GAME AT NUMBER ONE. WILLIAM NICHOIXS OF THE BOSTON COMMONWEALTH TEAM STAYED ON TO PLAY IN SPECIAL AND INTER-CITY MATCHES. WINSTON GUEST SWEEPING IN FOR A LONG ONE, ELEVEN GOALS WAS GUEST'S AND THE MEETING'S RECORD SCORE. April's Guest A Sheaf of Notes on the Indoor Polo Matches By Jack McDonald WINSTON (ten goals and worth it) Guest has been in Chicago. To say that he stood Chicago polo-land on its ears would be only a slight exaggeration, for he and his team-mates, Mike Phipps and Stewart Iglehart, played better and faster polo than has ever been seen in the middle west. At the last few championships played in New York, there never were so many close games, such team play, or such large and enthusiastic audiences. The transatlantic telephone played an im portant part in getting the Optimists together. Guest was hunting elephants in Africa, Igle hart was touring Europe with the world's championship ice hockey team, Phipps was in Florida, and Shaffer was in Texas. The wires were burned and they were all on hand for the first game. 4 Herb Lorber, the man who has made Chicago polo conscious, was responsible for the Optimists be ing here. While playing on a Chicago team at the New York matches two years ago, Lorber se cured Guest's promise that if the '33 matches were held in Chicago the Optimists would gladly come. When he received Lorber's tele gram inviting him to this year's matches, Guest hurried by boat and plane, stopping in New" York only long enough to round up the other boys. Rounding up Shaffer was simple, for when Guest stopped in at 52 West Forty-sec ond, there was Harvey leaning gracefully against the mahogany, just in from Texas. Guest, a tall, handsome, unassuming chap, was by far the outstanding figure of the Championship matches. His horsemanship, his remarkably flexible wrist, and his astute field generalship place him in front of any present day polo player. Locker-room gossip is that any man, regard less of his indoor experience, is worth at least five goals when playing with Guest. He is one of the few men using the Eng lish style of gripping the mallet, with the stick end in the middle of the palm. He does not put the full force of his shoulders behind his shots, relying instead upon his tremendous wrist strength. Using the wrist with a twist ing motion, he can send a ball from the cor ners to goal with unbelievable accuracy and speed. Of course, all Hitchcock men think that if Guest used the orthodox grip and brought his shoulders behind the ball, he would be able to drive thirty yards farther. But he does well enough, thank you. Records were broken with an enviable non chalance. In an exhibition game with the Chicago Riding Club (winners of the Class B title) Phipps crashed through with ten goals, breaking the individual high goal rec ord, only to have Guest score eleven goals for still another record two nights later. The devotees of the game shudder to think what Guest might have done had he not been han dicapped by a badly sprained thumb on his stick hand. Frank Bering, Herb Lorber, the commit tee, and hordes of news photographers met the invaders at the station with Greeter Gaw's circus wagon. There were excited whisper ings in the La Salle Street station, where Winston was variously identified by tourists and porters as Bill Tilden and Maurice Chevalier. "Hunting lions was a sensation," Guest remarked, "but my ride through those busy downtown streets, with two grinning THE OPTIMISTS— GUEST, IGELHART AND PHIPPS— IN ACTION cops, sirens howling, clearing a path before us, was a thrill." It mustn't be thought that the Optimists were the only team in the tournament, for a finer collection of competi tors would be hard to find. But the Eastern ers were such a revelation that the other clubs were slighted a bit. Major C. C. Smith's Sixth Corps Area team, runners-up in both the Open and "A", was as great a team as the west has ever produced, and as well mounted as any club in the country. Unbeaten for the entire season, it was not until the Sixth Corps Area team ran up against the almost super-human Optimists that they bowed in defeat, and then only after a hard fight. Bill Nichols and George Oliver, both east ern boys who stayed on after their teams left, in order to play in special match and intercity games, made many friends. Oliver, who is new to the indoor game, undoubtedly will be one of the coming ten goal men. He has been asked to join with the Guest boys for the summer season at Meadowbrook, and with his powerful shoulders and wrists, should prove a sensation around New York. Bill Nichols is no stranger to polo, a six goal man, and one who fits in well with any combination. He played in practically every special match and exhibition, teaming vari ously with the 124th Field Artillery Cardi nals, the North Shore Polo and Hunt, as well as his own club, the Boston Commonwealth. The supreme polo compliment may be paid Nichols, "he can more than carry his handi cap in any company." The Sixth Corps Area and the Optimists were the undisputed finalists in both the "A" and the Open classes, all opposition being quickly disposed of. The Easterners were a little too much for the Army boys, defeating them 16 to 8 in the "A" and 8|/2 to 4]/z in the Open. One sensational shot of Captain Wilkinson's should be mentioned, an under the neck shot at a stiff angle from the far corner, that plopped squarely between the uprights. It was a shot that stood out in a game where unusual shots were frequent. The trend of the times was evident in the selection of the individual trophies, pewter tank ards, designed apparently for the foaming three point two. Herb lorber's hard riding Chicago Riding Club team, winners of Chicago's only cham pionship, were too experienced for the Boston Commonwealth riders, defeating them in the finals, eight to five. The game was much harder fought than is indicated by the score, Nichols and Pickering playing a bang up game for the Bostonians. Lorber, known as the "Babe Ruth" of polo, had the crowd up on their feet with his tremendous long shots. Some very fine games marked the winning of the Class "C" cup. The 112th Field Ar tillery of Trenton, New Jersey, defeated the 124th Field Artillery in the final game, 12^ to 5. Captain McGowan, who played an ex ceptional game for the winners, is one of the few men playing the indoor game wear ing glasses. Only one internationalist, Kenny, played the game outdoors while wearing glasses. Kenny was a wonder on a clear day, but found the going a little difficult on dark or cloudy days. It's amazing that the chaps wearing glasses can do so well in an arti ficially lighted ring. A nip-and-tuck, see-saw match, decided the Class "D" championship. The 124th Field Artillery Cardinals keeping the lead until the final chukker, when the Cleveland Riding Club forged to the front, winning 9 to 7. All of these fellows played finer polo than is usually seen in this class, and when next sea son rolls around will probably find themselves with higher individual handicaps. In the exhibition and special matches, everyone was given (Continued on page 68) May, 1933 31 'Agony in the Garden" — by El Greco. Lent by Mr. Arthur Sacks, N. Y.

Mayer THERE is a story, purported to have originated in Abie's Irish Rose or The Cohens and the Kellys or The McGinnises and the Feinbergs or some such piece, that bears repetition at the opening of an article about Patrick A. Nash. I am a little vague as to the details of the story, but for the present purposes the one section of it I have in mind will serve nicely. The setting is a district in the East Side of New York about 1910. The store-fronts and the doorbells of this particular section are let tered entirely with Celtic names— O'Flaherty,' Burke, Gilhooley, etc. The scene closes with a Mr., say, Cohen, wandering down the street looking for a place to set up a little business. The next scene is ten years later. The same store-fronts and doorbells are lettered entirely with Hebraic names — Ginsburg, Goldberg, Mayer, etc. The scene opens with a Mr., say, O'Halloran wandering down the street and gazing about in wonderment and stopping, finally, to inquire of a man in a doorway, "What became of the Irish?" The man's reply is, "What became of the Indians?" W HAT matters here is that the Irish had dis appeared. The story is allegorical in connection with Chicago, in that ten years ago the doors of the local political bosses were lettered entirely with Celtic names. There was an occasional exception, of course, but it was only occasional. There was, I seem to recall, an Italian named Barasa, a poor Swede named Lundin, and a scion of Boston gentility named Thompson. But these were only occasional, and they were all Republicans, and even at the top of the Republican pile was an Irishman — Crowe. As for the Democrats, they were Hibernian all the way down the line. The party was the personal property of four gentlemen, Roger C. Sullivan, John P. Hopkins, John F. O'Malley, and George E. Brennan. In addition, there were Kennas, and Devers, and Dunnes, and Powers', and Carrs, and Barretts. Ten years later, it was not amiss to ask, "What became of the Irish?" The Republican party had been pretty well blasted by the machinations of Big Bill Thompson. The Democratic party had fallen into the hands of Tony Cermak, of Bohemia. The Irish had thought to aggrandize their ranks with the Slavs by throwing an occa sional fish to Cermak, but they had not counted on the extent of Cermak's ambitions, and Tony had taken the party away from them. The Sullivans, the Hopkinses, the O'Malleys, et al., had been replaced by the Homers, the Szymczaks, the Arveys, the Rosenbergs, the Jareckis, and the Sonnenscheins. The Sullivan dynasty was not only dead, but gone. A few of the lineal descendants, like Mike Igoe, had held out against the onslaught of the Cermaks and had been crushed; the rest were going along with Cermak. The positions of Tony and the Irish were reversed. Pat Nash went along with Cermak. He was the No. 1 dignitary at the Cermak throne, as Cermak had been at Brennan's. The day Cermak died the Irish came back. That day Boss Cermak was replaced by Boss Nash. And by a strange turn of events, there sat at Boss Nash's right hand a worthy perpetuator of the restoration — Tom Courtney. Last fall Cermak had nominated Courtney for state's attorney. When Cermak died, Nash became the boss, and Courtney became the heir-apparent. That is the prelude to the story of Pat Nash. Nash is an anomaly in big city politics, and in three ways. First, he is an honest man. For a man to have gone along for forty years with the "organiza tion" in a big city and to have remained clean is something more than a paradox. Nash has done that. This does not mean that Pat Nash is the kind of man that a corrupt city needs — no "organization" man, clean or dirty, ever reformed a city that needed reforming. It does mean, however, that if all organization men were like Pat Nash, the organization would be a boon to the city instead of a scourge — but then the organization would not exist, at least not in its traditional form. The man who sponsored, for instance, the recent deal by which six judges — including a justice of the state Supreme Court — retired from the Republican ballot and had their names placed on the Demo cratic ballot, — that man is no Galahad; nor is that man standing at Armageddon and battling for the Lord who opens patronage con ferences with the pious hope that "we can put out every Republican office-holder from top to bottom." That man is the faithful, and, in rare instances like this one, honest servant of an organization whose first interest is not the welfare of the sovereign people. 1 he second way in which Pat Nash is an anomaly in politics is in his ability to earn a living outside public life. This is a capacity much less frequently met up with than is generally suspected. Nash's career is not that of the perennial office-holder — or office-seeker. Roger Sullivan, who lived next door to Pat in the old 14th Ward, is supposed to have interested the young sewer-contractor in politics, but this is not strictly the case. Pat was always a devotee of sports, and the sporting part of what is known as the political arena always appealed to him. He was not the first Irishman whose eyes lit up at the prospect of a good scrap. He ran for the state senate in 1898 — and was licked. It wasn't until 1902 that he moved into the old 14th and became one of Sullivan's leaders. Between 1898 and 1915 Pat Nash stuck to his sewerage contracting. It was a good business and a big one — big enough to make Tom Nash's three sons, John and Dick besides Pat, successful. And sewers, then as now, were no dirtier than Chicago politics. But slowly, and somewhat mechanic ally, he became a power on the West Side. Sullivan and Hopkins and O'Malley found him helpful. He was a politician, but he grew into a politician out of a respectable business man — and he never quit being a respectable business man. A respectable business man is a rare and lovely asset to any political camp. In 1915 the Board of Review gave him his first political job; they elected him county assessor to fill a nine months' vacancy. The Demo crats were proud of having one non-professional politician and made the most of their "business man." At the end of the nine months, Pat did not stand for re-election; the emoluments of the assessor's office were no attraction to him and the job kept him away from his business. Three years later he won the only elective office he has ever held — membership on the Board of Review. That was not as con suming a job as assessor and Pat stayed on for six years, giving, as the Daily J<[ews said in recommending him for re-election in 1924, a good account of himself. But 1924 was the Coolidge year, and Pat Nash, running 125,000 votes ahead of the national ticket, went down in the landslide. Losing office offered him no problem. Nash Bros, had become one of the biggest sewer contracting firms in the country. Yes, there were city contracts, but there were contracts from other cities (a $2,000,000 sewerage system for Detroit, for example), and no one was able — or is today — to say that there was any graft in the city jobs that went to Nash Bros. The Nashes have been contractors since Pat's father came to Chicago in 1854 and helped build the first water tunnels under the city's streets. The business has always been as much as the three brothers, and their sons, could handle. Then there was something else besides sewers that distracted Pat Nash from politics. The Nashes are great people for sports — an old Irish custom. They are outdoors people; up until five years before he died, old Tom Nash would walk half a day to see a horse race or a fight, and he was 101 when he died. And his father lived and died in Ireland for something around 106 years. Pat's first love is horses. In the old days the West Side used to see him han dling one of the classiest turn-outs in town. About fifteen years ago Pat and his brother Dick picked up a breeding farm near Lexington, Ky., and Shandon Farm soon had a good name among the big racing stables. There are plenty of instances to testify to Pat's and Dick's judgment of horseflesh; the best known is (Continued on page 74) May, 1933 33 FRIEDA INESCORT WHEN A PRODUCER HAS A ROLE CALLING FOR SOMETHING RATHER FINE AND DECENT IN WOMANHOOD, HE IS LIKELY TO PUT A CHECK OPPOSITE THE NAME OF THIS TALL DISTINGUISHED SCOTTISH GIRL.

AS THE BRILLIANT YOUNG NOVELIST IN WHEN LADIES MEET SHE GIVES LUCID DEFINITION TO A VERY DIFFICULT FART. Harbingers of Summer New Plays Test Out the Theatrical Terrain By William C . Boyden FIVE new plays this month! The van guard of the World's Fair theatrical invasion is upon us. And variety enough to suit almost any taste. If the five entertainments under discussion were analog ized in terms of drinks, playgoers may be said to have enjoyed a bottle of sound Burgundy, a flagon of sacramental wine, a stein of good beer, a shot of corn liquor and a slug of bath room gin. I confess that comparing Riddle Me This to beer and Shuffle Along to corn liquor may stretch a point. But the other three are good enough, and I did want the metaphor. The sparkling wine of the current offerings is "When Ladies Meet, a good play which seemed even better because it opened at the Erlanger on the night following the premiere of On the Ma\e at the Garrick. It was as though a gale of morning air swept with clean freshness through a room fetid with the olfac tory offenses of an all night poker game. Concerning the latter play I will have some thing to say in a more appropriate spot in this essay. It is mentioned here only because it sent critics and first-nighters to Rachel Crothers' comedy in a mode to welcome with open arms any decent play which could serve to re-establish their faith in the theatre. Miss Crothers is proficient at her trade. Her unfailing knack of turning out a hit a year would entitle her to be a state playwright un der any form of technocracy. She is adept at plotting; her characters may err but always gracefully; her ideas while not profound are generally provocative. In When Ladies Meet she deals in worldly terms with a sentimental quadrilateral made up of very ingratiating people: a charming, naive and virginal lady novelist of thirty years (a difficult part, played with distinction by Frieda Inescort); her strictly honorable suitor, a delightfully mad young man (a rich role, the possibilities of which are fully realized by Walter Abel); her strictly dishonorable suitor, a middle-aged publisher of the lady killer type (an ungrate ful chore, well suited to the stagey impressive- ness of Herbert Rawlinson) ; her rival, the un derstanding wife of the publisher (another role full of possibilities, of which Selena Royle makes the most). Also a Greek chorus; a silly but amusing lady of middle years and the young man who trails at her apron and purse strings. Miss Crothers is at her best with such characters. Spring Bying- ton is an absolute natural as the fluttery widow, and you will find Robert Lowes in offensive as the interior decorator. It is all awfully well bred; sophisticated, thoughtful, humorous; never sexy, abstruse, vulgar. One scene particularly stands out by its sensitive treatment; the passage between the novelist and the wife in which the former, ignorant of the latter's identity, attempts to explain her credo concerning the errant hus band; and the wife, in equal ignorance, par ries with her understanding of the same male. Miss Inescort and Miss Royle handle this deli cate situation with fine understanding. When Ladies Meet will appeal to every grown up playgoer. Yoshe Kalb, the Yiddish Art Theatre production at the Apollo is as esoteric to the Gentile as it is exoteric to the Jew. Being of a slothful nature, I neglected to read a synopsis before the opening and consequently sat during the first act in a com plete fog as to what was happening. I envied the manifest pleasure of the audience made up almost exclusively of Jews and not, generally speaking, the Presbyterian and Episcopalian Jews, but good orthodox folk, to whom assim ilation is only a word in the dictionary. The intermission being spent in an intensive study of the Second Act story, I found subsequent goings-on slightly more illuminating. Yet, despite the handicap of a strange tongue and unfamiliarity with the folklore of the Chassi- dic Jew, Yoshe Kalb was moving and impres sive, a series of beautiful animated paintings. Throughout the production individual tour de force in acting is always subordinated to ensemble excellence. Moreover, these good people appear to embrace their material with enthusiastic affection, so often lacking in the cold technique of our Broadway actor. This exuberance of mood might be criticized as overacting, but certainly naturalistic under acting would be completely out of keeping with the racial temperament of the Jew, as well as with the bizarre quality of the drama. One can not leave Toshe Kalb without men tioning the impressive work of Maurice Schwartz. He delineates an ancient Rabbi worthy to hang in any gallery of contempo rary stage portraits. A mellow old-home- week atmosphere prevailed at the opening of Riddle Me This. It was at the Princess Theatre, a house long closed and musty with theatrical tradition. Then, the stage at times seemed like the lobby of the Ambassador Hotel with the perenially youthful Lottie Learn, her handsome son, Jack Garrity, and Virginia Ware competently going through their paces before their respective husband, father and husband. Last and obviously not least, Roger Pryor, the star of this latest but ton-button drama, has ornamented so many Chicago casts that he might almost be said to belong here. The play is good hokum, bright in dialogue, ingenious in plot and piquant in suspense. The idea of having the murder com mitted on the stage as a prologue is not novel, having been used in Milne's Perfect Alibi and elsewhere, but it is fresher than the conven tional technique of making the whole cast sus pect when all the time the dear old English butler is a homicidal maniac. While Chicago playgoers do not crave mystery plays as avidly as domestic comedies, Riddle Me This might catch on for a run. Roger Pryor gives a likable and boyish per formance as the Police Lieutenant, but lacks menace. He would be better suited to the role of the newspaper reporter, snappily por trayed by John Gallaudet. In fact, Mr. Gallaudet commands more than a supporting player's share of the interest in his many scenes with the star. I like Philip Lord as the murderer. He puts just enough ham into the role to make an effective heavy. One of the mysteries of show business is why negro revues are always too long. When the evening has been per fectly rounded off, another three-boy soft-shoe team is hustled on to repeat steps which have been done just as well earlier in the entertain ment. With that typical limitation Shuffle Along of 1933 is considerably better than the average ethiopian frolic. It contains in abundance the things suited to colored talent, the hot dancing, the mellow blue singing, the spirituals. But, strangely enough, the comedy, usually a depressing part of such an evening, is here quite endurable. Noble Sissle's libretto contains a thread of plot and some decent comedy ideas, out of which Flournoy Miller and Mantan Moreland squeeze considerable juice. The inevitable songstress with the Kate Smith build is named Edith Wilson. She sings vibrantly, with perfect diction and with out the customary vulgarity of warblers of "hot" numbers. Every year the choruses in these shows seem to get prettier and lighter. Also they dance faster and approximate more nearly the team- unity of Rasch trained steppers. The most sizzling chorus number is a rhylhm entitled Here 'Tis, in which a Miss Joyce and a Mr. Avant come close to stopping the show. Late in the evening Eubie Blake sits down at a piano and does some strange and miraculous things thereto. Generally speaking, you might go farther and fare worse than to invest two dollars at the Illinois box office. Several years ago Edna Hibbard did some hot weather business here with Sisters of the Chorus. Ever since she has been attempting to lure unsuspecting sheckles into the box office with unsavory variations on the gold-digger theme. Ambi tion deserves encouragement, but unfortunate ly for Miss Hibbard, where Vice stalks the stage, a little more than a little is by much too much. On the Ma\e has about the same ap peal as a story by a Pullman car Boccaccio. The present rage for moratoriums should in clude this class of theatrical merchandise. One bright spot in the picture is an ingenue named Loretta Poynton who, with the radiance of a strawberry in a dish of beans, shines out by her youthful prettiness and disarming sincerity. May, 1933 35 FAIR STYLE DIRECTOR MRS. FAYE THOMPSON FORD CARTER, FASHION DIRECTOR OF A CENTURY OF PROGRESS EXPOSITION, WHO WILL PRODUCE AND DIRECT A THREE-A-DAY STYLE SHOW AT THE BLUE RIBBON CASINO AND WHOSE STORY OF THE PURPOSE AND CHARACTER OF THE PROJECT APPEARS ON THE OPPOSITE PAGE. Fashion's Century of Progress The Fashion Profession and the Fair By Fa ye Thompson Ford Carter 1"* HE fashion profession is a compara tively new development in the field of women's work. I wonder how many people realize that, when the last Chicago World's Fair was held in 1893, there was no such profession. Then there were dressmak ers and dress salesladies, but the whole scheme of women in the fashion business be gan and ended there. My work having been in this fashion pro fession (I can almost be called a pioneer of five or six short years' standing — so young is this now vast field of activity) it occurred to me many months ago that the 1933 Century of Progress should support the universal and aesthetic feeling for clothes which is the American women's expression. It was a fine idea, but the story of how many times I prepared a decent burial for it will never be fully told. Modestly, I want to say, however, that it must have been a good idea and one with a great mass appeal, for in spite of repeated discouragements, it caught on and lived until now it is a brilliant and substantial reality — a sturdy child like so many who start out fluttering between life and death. My idea in staging this up-to-the-minute fashion show is not just to parade numbers of gowns before the public. On the contrary, I want to show how to wear a certain dress, where it should be worn, and by which type it can be worn to the best advantage. In other words, the time has come when the mere mat ter of clothes, always one of women's primary interests, can be presented dramatically, in terestingly, and with a decided content of educational value. The only reason why this is possible is be cause those interested in women's dress are working more and more closely together, and I want right here to express my appreciation of the goodwill and spirit of those Michigan Avenue Shops which have cooperated with me in this venture. At these shops (Mar tha Weathered, Saks Fifth Avenue, Powell's, The Blackstone Shop, Leschin's and Blum's Vogue) it will be possible to purchase the models which are presented at my fashion shows. In order to bring about this condi tion, an enormous amount of detail work for all concerned has been necessary, but that is one of the developments of this modern and progressive age. It can be done and it has been done. Every two weeks the en tire collection of dresses to be exhibited will be changed and a gala performance will be staged to introduce the new collection. Thus, with the fast changing styles, there will be every opportunity to present the very latest things and the ones most appropriate for the seasons as they slide from spring to early summer, to late summer, to fall. During the past month I have been working here and in New York, selecting with the utmost care those costumes which we feel will be most interesting and useful to the constant stream of women who will be visiting the Fair. While, in some cases, I have worked for a dramatic effect, in most instances I have kept continually in mind the needs and the activities of the representative American woman. Fashion, as such, many will say has become vulgarized, since it is now possible to obtain what is called "the latest thing" in cheaper models almost immediately after the style has been launched. While I fully realize this con dition, it only strengthens what has always been almost an obsession with me — that the best dressed women are those whose clothes, while strictly conforming to the style stand ards of the moment, are still so conservative, so simplified, so free from non-classic com plications that they stand out as elements of good taste under any circumstances. Of course, in this country, more and more women are appreciating the standards of good taste and are responding to them rather than to what we used to call, so proudly, "novelties." Moreover, the application of the basic principles of dress to individual shapes and figures has become, if not a universal habit, then certainly a universal ideal. The newer styles, it seems to me, are kinder than they have been for some time past. The silhouette with its broad shoulders, fuller sleeves and straighter skirts, helps the feminine form toward the modern ideal of slimness and height. Of course, at first, it is difficult to accept. Even I, seeing as much as I do of the new fashions, and becoming accustomed to them gradually, feel much as though I were stepping out to a masquerade ball when first I deck myself out in them. Then, gradually, it dawns upon me that I am looking really better than I have in years. If I am the victim of so much timor- ousness, then how must the more isolated woman gasp when she contemplates broad shoulders and high hats. That is just where these fashion shows of mine will serve to educate as well as amuse, and that is why women visitors to the Fair are bound to appreciate something that is be ing done for their own exclusive interests. The fact that women are all fundamentally inter ested in fashions is all to their credit. It only proves their feeling for creativeness and ar tistic accomplishment. This season, too, the ac cessories are particularly interesting. They are new and filled with inspiration. For in stance, there are the gloves made of fabric, pique, organdie and printed materials. They match the hat, the scarf, the frock and give a whole new expression to the ensemble. One printed cotton evening dress I have has a big square handkerchief to match. And there you have your ensemble without an ad dition needed. How much more inspirational that is than piling on a lot of jewelry which may or may not have any coherence with the gown in question. Cottons, by the way, are quite the sensation of the season. I must say that I am heartily in favor of them. No longer are they the step children of the dress design business. Sud denly they have bloomed into leadership and are quite the prima donnas of the season. Take the black and white printed cotton evening dress, for instance. Quite simple it is, but so cool and fresh looking. Or, think about the red dotted Swiss with its little dark blue taffeta jacket; or the red and gray heavily striped cotton looking almost like an awning promoted to a more gracious setting, this too for evening; or the white pique evening frock with its brown three quarter pique coat. Can you imagine anything smarter than these? Then what about the "Brunch" dresses? They're for pool and beach parties. I won't tell you too much about their charms for they are a real surprise. And the beer jackets! No longer are we fixated on cocktail jackets. Al ready they are things of the past. Now we go in for beer parties but the regalia is quite as fascinating, if not more so. One new fashion is the restaurant dinner frock. No longer does it trail about the feet. No! Its skirt stops about ten inches from the floor. It is made of heavy black silk crepe or of black linen and is trimmed dramatically with white. No description can ever tell the charm of this en tirely flattering dress. It must be seen to be believed. For those coming to visit the Century of Progress, the necessary traveling clothes — but that is another story. Only let me mention the sheer suits. They are too sophisticated and charming for words — printed chiffons com bined with printed crepes; chiffons that are tucked in masses from shoulder to hem; heavy nets; triple chiffons — all those most flatteringly feminine materials all done on tailored lines of smart simplicity which mark them even a step ahead of Summer 1933.

BRING ON YOUR WORLD A Report Dated April 29, 1933 By MILTON S. MAYER PHOTOGRAPHS BY A. GEORGE MILLER I sat at a table in a restaurant with Mr. and Mrs. Hinman, Miss Kennedy and Mr. Howe the evening of Friday, April 28. That was almost exactly four weeks before May 27, the open ing date of A Century of Progress. (That sure is the worst name a world's fair ever had. Any newspaperman, or journalist, as newspapermen call each other, could have warned Rufus Dawes against it) . We were an assorted little party. Mr. Hinman is a grower of something, nasturtiums I think. Mrs. Hinman works for a publisher. Mr. Howe is a bloated press agent for a university. Miss Kennedy was born in Albion, Mich., and has a beveled nose. Mr. Mayer is an unemployed newspaperman and looks like Abraham Lincoln. Between the soup and the roast beef, when the night was beginning to lower, came a pause in the conversation that is known, in Virgil anyway, as the prima quies. "Uncle Remus," said Mr. Howe, addressing me, "tell us a story. Tell us a story about the World's Fair. The real story. No bologna. What's it like? Is it any good? Is anyone going? Tell us about it." "Yes," chorused the rest of the party, "tell us about it." That's a lie. Mr. Hinman was reading his copy of Time, the Weekly Newsmagazine, and the others didn't say anything. "Well," I began, "you've all read my previous articles on the Fair, I suppose." None of them had read any of them. "You've all complimented me on them," I said. They admitted that they had, but that didn't mean they had read them. Those previous articles comprise a long story — too long to tell, I decided. So I began with the situation as it stood at the time, four weeks before May 27. I cleared my throat. "You will agree," I said, "that the whole world is in a state of chassis; that things everywhere have grown consistently worse since that terrible day in October of 1929 when my five shares of Kay Copper opened at % and closed at 1/32, and other gilt- edged stocks dropped accordingly; that the spurts have been so short-lived as to have had no appreciable effect; and that, what is more, things have not improved since March 4, even though the new President has rubbed his wonderful lamp until the shine is almost gone. You will agree, in short, that the human race is in a dark way, that poverty is everywhere, that war is raring to bust loose, that the angels are warning the unborn children to abandon all hope ye who enter here. You will agree that the turn has not come." They would, they said, agree. A WIZARD OF OZ FIGURE BY ALPHONSE IANNELLI ON THE ENCHANTED ISLE. "All right then. Now in the midst of this disconsolation, this desolation, this horroration, it has grown increasingly harder to find men who can keep their tails up, as the British put it. And as for men who are still willing to venture, to build, to invest in the future — they are nothing short of museum pieces. Con sider. Here we sit, here everyone sits, wondering if this best of all possible worlds will still be in existence a month from now. Red rebellion has undermined the most genuinely conservative groups in our civilization — the teachers and the farmers. If we here had undertaken a $25,000,000 private project in 1929, the success of which depended entirely on the willingness of the common man to spend his money for entertainment, what would we have done when the crash came — and kept coming up to the very day that our project was due to begin paying dividends?" "All right, all right," said Mr. Howe. "Don't make a speech. Tell us whether this Fair is going to be any good." "That's what I'm telling you," I said, ignoring the slur. "For the moment we'll pass the question of whether it is going to be any good as a Fair. I'm trying to suggest that the world, which is paralysed with fear of the future, has seen this pyramid of hopes on the Lake Front grow higher and higher while every thing else was sinking deeper into the pit. I'll not go into the statistics of it — although I've got enough statistics at my finger tips to choke a U. S. Senator. I just want you to regard the thing as a spectacle and consider its effect on the broken morale of the world. Now something around a million people have paid a dime to see the Fair under construction. What have they seen? They've seen something you can't see anywhere in the world today outside of Russia — hundreds of men at work on a single project, thundering trucks, whirring steam shovels, and mooing freight trains piled to the scuppers with iron and steel and lumber and trees and God knows what else. Industry — that's what they've seen; the only sign of industry on the continent." GROTESQUE CHARACTERS OF CHILDHOOD LITERATURE — INDIAN AND SOLDIER. "All right, that's a million people," said Mr. Howe. "Most of them live around Chicago. I can see how the effect of it has bucked them up. But how about the other 119,000,000? How about the tillers of the soil, who are putting ropes around judges' necks and yelling for blood? Do you suppose this thing is going to have any affect on them?" "Just the question I wanted you to ask me," I said. "Look at here." I pulled out of my coat pocket — out of the lining of my coat to be exact, because the lining of my pocket has worn out and everything I put in it skids right down to the hem of the coat proper — a copy of the Bates County Republican, dated Friday, April 21, 1933. The Bates County Republican is pub lished every Friday in the city of Rich Hill, Mo., and is read from cover to cover, and back to cover, by the entire population of Bates County. I handed the paper to my friends and pointed to Column 1, Page 1. "Look at here," I said. This is what they saw at the top of the page: GOING TO CHICAGO FAIR? The Century of Progress Exposition Starts the First of June YOU OUGHT TO BE THERE Great Chance to See Things and Visit Places that You Will Never Have Again My friends said that that was very interesting, but that the THE ENCHANTED CASTLE, CYNOSURE OF YOUNG EYES ALERT TO THE ALLURE OF ENCHANTED ISLAND. editor had probably been bought up by the executives of the Exposition. This I was able to deny catagorically, because my writings reach a wider clientele than those of the editor of the Bates County Republican, and Mr. Dawes had not even tried to buy me up. "Are you sure?" Mr. Howe said. I was sure, I told them, because I had been hoping he would. "Well, what are these farmers going to use for money, even if they're enthusiastic?" asked Mr. Howe. "Read what's under those headlines," I said. This is what they read: "People around here are getting more Chicago-minded every day. As the date for the Century of Progress ap proaches folks from every part of the United States are thinking and hoping that in some way they can be able to make the trip to see this, the greatest Fair the world has ever seen. . . . "Now we are going to say that if anyone wants to bad enough they can get there if there is only money stand ing in their way. We know what we are talking about as money has always been in our way and we have managed to get quite a few places. And the places where we have not been, we are going to see. But away from this personal stuff. We just threw that in there to prove that we are no amateur when it comes to going places without money. The actual expense on a trip to the Fair would not be so large. . . . Always remember that you don't have to order everything on the menu when you go into a place to eat. If you can afford to eat only a quarter's worth no one will think you are smart if you order a 75 cent dinner. . . . "Even if you are a little shy on money, the pleasant memories you will have of what the money was spent for will last much longer than the thought of being out of money. After a while you will get used to being out of money and get so you will kind of like it." Now, I explained to my friends, I had undertaken a little MEMBERS OF THE JUNIOR LEAGUE HAVE BEEN DEVOUT IN THEIR SPONSORSHIP OF THE MAGIC ISLAND. investigation of my own of the rural newspapers, with the result that I was satisfied that every * * * * * * County Republican, or * * County Democrat, in the land was talking the same way to the entire rural population which comprises, I was able to assert after a quick shift to my cuff, 45% of the 120,000,000 citizens of the United States. 'There you are," I said somewhat ambiguously. "There is the attitude that this thing has inspired in the country editors, and you can't laugh it off, because if there is anyone harder up than the farmer, it is the country editor." That's all very nice," said one of the ladies, "but are they coming to the Fair?" "I don't know," I said. "My guess is that they are, because they came in 1893, and 1893 was a pretty good panic, as panics went in those days, and the farmers were as badly off as they are now, and there were more farmers then than there are now, and the farmers didn't own automobiles the way they do now, and there were no roads anyway. Come to think of it, there were no automobiles either. And the railroads were just about as charitable in their rates as they are now. My guess is that they are coming, but what if they don't? "I'll tell you what. This Fair has to have 25,000,000 paid admissions to wind up solvent. They're figuring on 50,000,000. Let's say that all the Chicago people go, which is safe, and that the one million people attending conventions in Chicago go, which is a cinch, and that only a million people come to Chicago during the course of the whole summer to go to the Fair — only a million, drawn, without much trouble, from the people in the cities who can still afford to take a trip. If each person in that crowd goes five times — and in past Fairs they've gone from ten to fifteen times — the Fair will have its 25,000,000 admissions and pay off. What if it does just that? What if a World's Fair breaks even in 1933? Won't the people who stayed at home pull in their belts another notch — they'll have A DECK VIEW OF ADMIRAL BYRD"s INTREPID SHIP, A WORLD'S FAIR EXHIBIT. to carve some new notches probably — and see the confounded civilization through? I'm asking you." It was about 9 o'clock by this time, and all the lights in the restaurant were turned off except the one nearest our table. I went on talking until a voice in the rear of the restaurant hollered to a voice in the front of the restaurant, "Did you turn off the lights?" and the voice in the front replied, "Yeah, I turned off the lights." Then we left and went to the next place, and I went on talking. I figured I had convinced the party that just the fact that there it was — a World's Fair — in this year, 1933, would restore to the citizenry what the sports fans call the old pepper, so I went on to the other side of the problem: was it going to be a good fair? "Listen," I said. "Listen carefully. I'm going to tell you something. And remember I'm not trying to kid anyone now, including myself. This isn't for a magazine. I don't have to please anyone here. I don't have to hypodermize myself into an enthusiastic condition on the grounds that you might as well help the damn thing along. Here it is — I discovered it today. — That Fair is going to be the damnedest thing anybody has ever seen. Period." "Why?" said Mr. Howe simply. "I discovered why today. I've been skeptical, at bottom, these past six months, although you probably didn't notice it in my articles. But you didn't read my articles, so you posi tively didn't notice it in my articles. But it's been there. As late as last month, I wrote that there wasn't going to be anything at this Fair that could compare with the Ferris Wheel or the Belly-Dancer, begging your pardon, at the World's Columbian "THE CITY OF NEW YORK" IS AN IMPOSING ITEM IN THE VISITOR'S ITINERARY. Exposition. And I meant it. I couldn't see what was going to be so marvelous about the Sky-Ride, even though a friend of mine was the press agent for it. I couldn't see what was going to thrill the yokels. And by yokels, I mean the yokels of Chicago as well as the yokels of Fedora, S. Dak. After I wrote that last month, I worked myself up into such a pet over the thing that I prepared a telegram to Rufus Dawes, who once asked me my opinion of the Fair, knowing that it would make me feel good. The telegram read: QUICK BUILD THE LARGEST ROLLER COASTER IN THE WORLD OR SHOOT A ROCKET TO MARS OR BRING A BATTLESHIP TO THE FOOT OF TWENTY-THIRD STREET AND BLOW IT UP OR MATCH HOOVER WITH ROOSEVELT IN A FIFTEEN-ROUNDER THE WINNER TO MEET JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, SR., IN A FINISH BOUT AT SOLDIER FIELD DO SOMETHING GAUDY OR YOUR FAIR WITH ALL ITS SCIENTIFIC WONDERS WILL BE THE BIGGEST FLOP SINCE THE WAR OF 1812. "But I didn't send it. I didn't have the money to pay the toll on it, and I wasn't going to add a collect telegram to the rest of Rufus Dawes' worries. Besides, I figured it was too late to do anything about it." I paused for breath and a small snoutful of non-intoxicating beer. "Come on," said Mr. Howe. "Get this over with. I've got to get home. I've got to get to work by 11 o'clock tomorrow. What's the big secret?" "The big secret, friends — the one I discovered today — is — color. When was the last time you went past the Fair grounds, Mr. Howe?" Mr. Howe said it was about a week ago. Miss Kennedy and Mrs. Hinman had also gone past about a week ago. Mr, Hinman had gone past it twice that day on the I. C, THE SKY RIDE FROM THE NEW TWENTY-THIRD STREET BRIDGE. but he had been reading Time, the Weekly Newsmagazine, on both trips. "Then," I said, "you haven't seen it. I went downtown this morning, and the General Motors Building was grey, kind of alluminumish. Very nice, but, like a baked Idaho potato, something you see every day. I came back south this evening, and the General Motors Building was — listen to me — ORANGE. And the Travel and Transport monstrosity was beginning to be painted GREEN and YELLOW. And the Federal Building was white and gold. And the Chrysler Building had lavender stripes. And the Agricultural Group was blue — two shades — and red and green and black. And the Hall of Science was — so help me — red, white, and blue. "You've heard tell of a riot of color? This is a holocaust. Not just a wall here and there, or a building or two, but a whole city is going to be there on June 1 in the maddest carnival of color that has ever been seen on earth." "It will be awful," said Miss Kennedy. "The hell it will be awful, Miss Kennedy," I said. "That's what I thought when I was first told about Joseph Urban's plans for it. That's what I told the little woman. It will be awful, I said. I even shuddered. But a week from now every one who goes past on the train and just sees the tops of the buildings will think he's drunk or crazy, or both. And wait till they have shot the works. As a spectacle, there never will have been any thing in a clas3 with this Fair. The Himalyas, the Vanities, and the Great Day of Judgment will pale in comparison. The Bulgarian flag will be chaste alongside it. "But it won't be awful." Then I explained, as best I could, how a kind of genius which is completely incomprehensible to writers and other members of the common herd was able to slap a jamboree of colors on so large a canvas as a world's fair and make it turn out magnificent rather than awful. This genius, I explained, has never before been demonstrated in this country. It was given sway for the first time in Europe at the Barcelona Exposition in 1930, and on a grander scale at the French Colonial Exposition at Paris a year later. It derives, very simply, from nature via the painted picture. It is not garish and nauseous like a Balaban & Katz lobby because it makes no pretense of glorifying the American girder or muscling in on the glory that was Greece. Its media are simply enough cans of paint to go around and enough unembellished surface to give each color a chance to make itself heard as well as seen. "So there is your World's Fair," I said. "I might add that I have made a detailed inspection of it, from Apple to Zebra, and I could go on for hours — ¦" "Hey, Charlie," Mr. Howe hollered to the man in the white apron, "don't you close pretty soon?" " — for hours telling you what's inside it, telling you about the landscaping, and the exhibits, and the side-shows, and the Biggest Horse on Earth, and the dioramas — •" "Is that what four out of five have?" asked Mr. Hinman, looking up from his copy of Time, the Weekly Newsmagazine. " — and the dioramas, and the wonders of science, and the rest of it. They will all be there. I don't know if they will be worth looking at. I think they will be. But what I think doesn't count. I'm not 50,000,000 paid admissions. In fact, I expect to get in free or know the reason why. But it doesn't matter if what's inside is any good. That color is going to turn this whole city, and maybe this whole country, and maybe this whole world, into a great big Roman holiday. And at night, say, — the lights — all in color — and all the colors — floodlights and scintillators — iridescent steps and plumes and waterfalls — auroras and searchlights and beams intersecting in the sky like broken rainbows — it's going to be a phantasmagoria. Yes, sir, a regular phantasmagoria." I paused and reached for my schooner. The man named Charlie tapped me on the shoulder. "We're closing," he said. I looked around for my friends. No, they weren't gone. They were there. But they weren't moving. But they weren't asleep. They were spellbound. MOTORS IN THE MODERN MODE PIERCE-ARROW SEVEN-PASSENGER SEDAN, AN EIGHT CYLINDER MOTOR.

A STREAM, A HORSE, THE BIG WOODS, AND A DUDE— SPELL PEACE. THE RODEOS AT A-BAR-A RANCH ARE ALWAYS LIVELY AFFAIRS. Home, Home When the Dudes and By Lucia WALK down almost any of the loop streets these days, and you will walk into a trap. Stranger still, the trap is sur' rounded by enthusiastic victims; and once you have shoul dered your way to the front it is all over for you too. The traps are those windows on corners here and there, cunningly filled with high Western saddles, cowboy's chaps, huge Stetsons, high-heeled boots, and sketches of rearing broncos which evoke yearn ing sighs from the band of willing victims. It's dude time again. Or, at least, it is time to begin making your plans, for despite the depression the good ranches still retain a large share of their old faithful clientele and they are still very exacting as to references, reservations early enough to make your and their plans jibe, etc. This may sound too swanky to be real ranching but they don't do it to be snooty. Dude ranch life is necessarily such a closed com munity or club-like affair that the guest must be rather carefully chosen to make things perfectly congenial. Though the life is so free and easy that a confirmed recluse may take a cabin and ride off by himself in perfect happiness day after day, most people prefer to join in the general spirit of cooperation, good fellowship and simple friendliness which flowers at a ranch among congenial people. People means people, too. Not just men. Women, girls, children trot off to dude ranches as gaily as their men now, and have the time of their lives doing it. Even if you don't care about horses particularly the life is decidedly pleasant if you like mountains, forests, the unspoiled outdoors, and simple living (with out hardships). But if you love horses and enjoy riding the trail, life on a ranch is simply heaven. Maybe you are an old hand at equestrianism, can choose your horse affinity and be off, or maybe you just like the idea but have never yet had foot in stirrup. In either case you'll be at home in a few days. In the latter case a friendly, understanding cowboy takes you in charge, chooses a gentle and wise horse for you, and before you know it you are "broken in" and trotting confidently along the path with never (or hardly ever) a panicky clutch at the horn or your saddle.

PHOTOGRAPHS ON THE5E PAGES FROM BURLINGTON ROAD AND NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILWAY. 48 The Chicagoan on the Ranch the Cowboys Play Lewis When you get confident enough you may take a pack trip with a guide and a group from the ranch, exploring the wilderness on horse back, catching your own fish for supper, camping out and liking it. On the other days you'll ride, ride, ride, alone or with a group — into the woods, to fishing or hunting grounds, to an Indian Reservation, down to the village for supplies and chats with the native westerners, to the splashy rodeo which is sure to be held somewhere near you. At night you'll be magnificently tired and fierce with hunger and the food will be divine and you won't have to bother dressing; the fireplace will take off the chill of the evening, the boys will bring out their songs and stories, and life will seem a very fresh and great adventure again. On Saturday nights there will probably be a dance but even this will be suitably simple, and no side anywhere. The most popular ranch country stretches through the wildly beautiful mountains of Montana and Wyoming, teeming with legends of the days of the Indians and the trappers, of Lewis and Clark, of the Vigilantes and pioneer settlements. The country is just about as unspoiled now as it was then, and once you get on a forest trail there is nothing -to remind you of civilisation except perhaps a ranger's sign tacked on a tree guiding you on your explorations. In the Greater Yellowstone Country, the huge stretch of national forests, parks and mountain ranges which rolls away from Yellow stone Park, are a number of the finest ranches of the west. Beartooth Ranch lies in a spectacular valley of the Beartooth National Forest, with the mountains shooting up above it and a wonderful panorama of rolling ranges and forests before it. Just a few hundred yards from the ranch house you see the silvery rush of Woodbine Falls and the murmur of water is soothingly with you all the time. The build ings are of log and stone and extremely comfortable. You can take your pick of a fine string of horses and start out on a short picnic trip to the interesting country about you — to Box Canyon or to Cathedral Peaks where they have a cabin for overnight stops, to an old mining camp down trail or up to the glaciers on Mt. Wood Plateau. One of their happiest trips (Continued on page 64) May, 1933 MAN AND BOY THEY GO WILL ROGERS ONE BETTER AT VALLEY RANCH. CORRALS AT A-BAR-A WHERE EVERYONE GATHERS TO CHOOSE HIS HORSE.

Ritchie HANNAH TEEGARDEN was dassled by the splendor of the Tremont House. She was just a bride — a beautiful bride with such pretty dresses and parasols and little bonnets — when the Major brought her here to live until he could find a house suitable for so lovely a creature. That was in 1867. To keep her from being homesick, for she was only eighteen, the Major had to plan all sorts of little excursions and diversions for her. On Sunday afternoons he would take her for a drive about the town in the finest carriage and behind the two most spanking-looking horses the livery stable afforded. One afternoon they attended the laying of the corner stone of the new Water Works on Chicago Avenue and Pine Street; on another they visited the "Great Eastern Museum," or they went to one of the Lake Street stores to look at a reed organ, which Hannah had decided she must have instead of a square piano. Occasionally they went to the theatre, to the minstrels; to the Academy of Music to see Joseph Jefferson in Rip Van Winkle; or to The Globe to see The Blac\ Croo\. On these occasions, Han nah wore a beautiful flowered silk dress with tiny puff sleeves, an extremely low neck, and her hair dressed in an elaborate melon-rib waterfall. The Major loved to show her off. At last one evening he announced he had found the house where they would live, a nice little place on Ashland Avenue out near the edge of town in a neighborhood made up mostly of Kentucky people. The house stood in a large yard where they could have a croquet ground. It had a high basement with a broad flight of steps leading up to the front door, and a little cupola on top from which they could look off across the prairies and see the cow-man driving his cows home from the pasture. Hannah was delighted, and imme diately began to plan on furnishing it, and unpacking her wedding presents.

I'll admit there are some very amusing instances which result from this combination. IT1 even go so far as to grant you that there are some very unfortunate results. Far be it from me to attempt to usurp the prerogatives of a professional peacemaker — and I assure my readers that I have no intention or inclination to step out of my character and adopt the role of arbitrator — but I do think it is time that something be said in defense rather than ridicule of this combination.

In that Contract Bridge is built entirely upon a structure of partnership understanding, inferences, and logic, isn't it safe to assume that a man and woman who have been each other's constant companion for years should understand each other a lot better than might strangers? Not that there are any private conventions, not that there are any unethical inferences, but there is just that intangible something, — possibly just as ridiculous as the so-called "woman's intuition" — nevertheless I claim it is a factor and it does exist. One of the reasons I believe you hear a man say, "Well, I can't play with my wife; we don't get along," or else you are apt to hear a charming little hostess say, "I'll play with anybody but my husband," is found in the fact that they have not as yet agreed on their team captain. There must be a "boss." There has to be a final "seat of authority" in every organisation. In your Sales Department you have your sales manager; in the Army you have the captains; and right up and down the entire structure of human activities, whether it is business, social, or recreational, there has to be someone in authority. Just so in a bridge game, and especially in a pair team. Now I am going to address those sccalled down trodden husbands who think they are being "henpecked and ribbed" in every bridge game by their wives. I'll make a little confession. I went through this same thing; but I think I was just a little smarter than some of you because I recognized that the little lady who was sharing my table with me was a better bridge player than I was. I realised that she had studied the game, and although I thought she was wrong quite often, I still did not feel I was in a position to argue with her. I knew she had spent my money for lessons; I knew she was a regular subscriber to the bridge magazine; I knew she had read about every book which had been published (and I had done none of these things) ; so I accepted her as the "boss" of the bridge table and our entire game for a number of years was built up around her as the team captain. I'll grant you I was not satisfied to have it so. That old masculine ego had to be satisfied. So I proceeded to do the things she had done. I took lessons; I read books; and I studied bridge — but of course that's another story. And I want to say right here and go on record in this indelible print that I believe any hus- band and wife can play a strong game and make themselves a tougher team to tackle if they will only mentally decide who is justly entitled to the control of the destiny. The reason husbands and wives are not playing a better game today is that they are attempting to play two different systems. The man has his ideas how a hand should be bid or defended, and the wife, of course, has hers. And, incidentally, it is a joke, I'll admit, to play against a team who are continually at loggerheads. That is why I say there must be a team captain. The team captain is the one who must decide which system is to be adopted, what sort of hands should be passed rather than bid, what type hands are to be bid and not passed, and of course what type hands constitute a force, etc. Now, just as soon as a husband and wife agree on that and conform, with but a few exceptions, to a given and adopted principle of bidding, then you are going to find a Contract pair team that is going to make tough "picking" for anybody. The great fascination of Contract lies in the mysteries and magic of the inferences. This, of course, is extinct and 54 The Chicagoan never exists in a game that lacks partnership understanding. I can readily appreciate why many people say they do not care for Contract, because after all they are not playing Contract. They are playing Auction Bridge and scoring it with the Contract score. The true delight of Contract is never experienced by the player who does not understand the bidding and who does not have the pleasure of partnership cooperation. Contract is without doubt the most popular game in America today. It is played in more homes than any other game. Golf, with its apparently universal popularity, is far in the minority as compared to Contract. There must be a reason, and there is a reason. It is a delightful recreation, and it taxes all of the skill and strategy of the player. After all, we can no longer afford to ignore this game of Contract. It has developed into such proportions that it is too important a factor in our lives to be passed over lightly. A few years ago we talked about "wallflowers." We all remember that the person who could not tango, or had not mastered the one step, was a social outcast. No matter how light he was on his feet and how skillfully he could waltz, we wanted to tango, we wanted to one step. Today Contract Bridge is a social requisite. The young debutante, the young lad who is in the embryonic social sphere, must know Con tract. The young matron and the host must not only know Contract, but they must be able to play it with at least some degree of skill. I grant you it is not essential that one advance to the very deepest secrets of the game. I see no reason for the ordinary player to devote a great deal of time attempting to perfect his game to the same degree as that of the master. When the host or hostess is making up an invitational list for an afternoon or evening at bridge, it is the responsibility of the prospective guest to be certain his bridge is not so atrocious that his name cannot be gracefully included. After all, it is comparatively simple for anyone to improve his game. Some people think it is necessary to have card sense. That is an absurd statement. Card sense after all is nothing more than ordinary, average, human intelligence. I'll admit there are some people who lack entirely the ability to grasp the intriguing proportions of values that we fix in cards, but that does not preclude their being a better bridge player than they are today. The idea that a passable or acceptable game of bridge is limited entirely to those people with card sense is an erroneous and unfounded impression. Because I do believe this, I contend there is no excuse or justification today for anyone playing a "bad" game of Contract. REVELRY BY NIGHT Shaw, Guest and Other Oddities By Parker Wheatley SCENE: Metropolitan Opera House, New York City; NBC Studios, Chicago. Principals: George Bernard Shaw, light heavyweight, Edgar Guest, heavy lightweight. Time: 7:45 p. m., April 11. Then came three gongs. Mr. Shaw leaped to the microphone. In fact, he had been ready to leap a full fifteen minutes before, having thought his broadcast was to begin at 7:30. Mr. Guest sat still. Both occupying the same ring (NBC blue network to me) somebody had to wait. So it happened that the only man in America ever to still the "poet of the people" was an Englishman. I doubt that Mr. Shaw knows he unwittingly deprived the adult radio audience of its Tuesday night philosophies. Perhaps he wouldn't recognize the name Guest anyway. This Shavian, whom the Tiation called a legend, talked just fifty-five minutes longer than the forty-five originally allotted to him. Perhaps the program executive who scheduled the show had never been to one of Mr. Shaw's plays. You know how cordially Shaw was received by that distinguished body, the American Academy of Political Science. The estimated audience at the Metropolitan was five thousand. My stooges (one is nothing in radio without them, and yet sometimes nothing with them) reported that in stooging down halls of apartment buildings and hotels they discovered a preponderant audience for the old gentleman. My sidewalk stooges reported the same. The epigrammatic orgy was carried to its end in Chicago by Mr. Hearst's kyw. Mr. Shaw did very well by the squire of San Simeon. Meanwhile, Mr. Guest had planned to broadcast at eight-thirty. DO you feel dull and tired these fickle spring days? Here's how to change all that. Drink Corinnis Spring Water — from six to eight glasses every day. Pure water, you know, is essential to health. It keeps the inner man clean, helps rid the body of those toxic wastes which slow you up and drag you down. So fill up on Corinnis — the water that is always crystal-clear, always pure and sparkling and always good to taste. Order a case of Corinnis now. It costs just a few cents a bottle — only a fraction of what you must pay for most spring waters. If your neighborhood store is out of supply, just telephone HINCKLEY & SCHMITT 420 W.

CANADIAN PACIFIC St. Lawrence Seaway Empress<*Britain WORLD CRUISE Jan. 4, 1934 But there was no disturbing the flow of Irish abuse all America was enjoying, which is proof enough that no one takes a vegetarian very seriously. Here's a fair sample of what you might have heard, were it not for G.B.S. "I mix my peas with honey, I've done it all my life It may seem rather funny But it \eeps them on my \nife." A guffaw of laughter from studio audience. After a paralyzing quatrain of above variety, probably a touching little talk on the measure of success, with poverty-stricken father realizing in the end that he was definitely off the gold standard, and that his three sons were adequate recompense from life. Very likely Mr. Guest would have gone on to recognize the divine spark in the heart of a scrub woman, who believes, and maybe rightly, that her son will some day be president. The greatest man who ever lived might have been cited as a "lonely and hurt" failure, who has since ruled the world. And most certainly you would have been sent singing on your way for days and days with a gentle "thought for tomorrow." On the occasion of my tuning in, I was so completely satisfied with my lot, at the end of twenty-eight minutes of uplift, that I missed the "thought" entirely. I didn't need it then. Household Memories, by the way, which features Mr. Guest, is one of radio's most successful broadcasts. Sunday preceding Mr. Shaw, baseball in Chicago reared its clamorous head for another season. And the New York Philharmonic Orchestra was interrupted in its Beethoven concert. Only by the grace of the gods, and fortuitous human inter vention, were we permitted to hear the closing bars of the Beethoven Sixth. On Easter Sunday the gods again intervened, even more suc cessfully, and Mr. Toscanini was permitted to give Chicago the Beethoven Seventh, the Coriolanus Overture, and the Triple Con certo. The latter, so seldom heard, was particularly enjoyable. There was considerable verve in the playing, and the soloists per formed beautifully. But what chance has Beethoven with Babe Herman at bat? Fortunately, baseball is not a winter sport. Although it might be surmised that I am not an ardent baseball fan, there's something I like about the game on the air. The audi ences boo exactly when and as often as they want. I've felt for some time that we need bigger and better boos in broadcasting. But the audiences which are admitted free to studios are a little over-awed by "all this wonderful entertainment which we get for nothing." Not so a baseball audience, which is as free as only an audience which pays admission can be. At present five Chicago stations are broadcasting the games, WGN, wbbm, wmaq, wjjd and wcfl. And on many days this season, these five stations will be broadcasting from the same ball park. If you must listen to the radio of afternoons, but prefer cocktails and music, I recommend wenr and kyw. Dr. Pratt and Dr. Sherman do very nicely over the latter station from three-thirty to four-thirty. Sponsors of the ball games this season run the gamut of novelty. WGN has Walgreen's, and you're likely to hear about anything from double plays to dandruff to ice cream. WMAQ is cooperating with General Foods in making the Middle West Grape Nuts conscious. Prima Beer continues on wbbm, with Pat Flanagan. These baseball announcers are interesting. The above Pat is most typical of the diamond. Just rough enough vocally to satisfy the elemental, either in the athletic, or in those who exercise vicariously. Reputed to be a great story-teller in life, Mr. Flanagan carries out his romantic tendency in broadcasting. He can make the dullest game exciting. Hal Totten of wmaq might be called the gentleman sportsman, if he must be classified. His reports are recognized for their accuracy and detail. He allows the crowd to do the shouting, and confines himself to the facts. A tempered style. Bob Elson of wgn tends toward the manner of veteran Totten, and although com paratively new at the job, is well liked. The consensus favors Pat Flanagan as most popular. Whatever style, all the boys use the language of the horsehide cohorts. Their adjectives settle down to such familiars as "colorful," "very, very," and "beautiful." The latter seems a favorite, and can be depended upon whenever a good play occurs. "Perfect" pops up once in a while, too. And "plenty" is a choice modifier. Figures of speech take after such gems as this: "Bean at bat, Bean, b-e-a-n, as in string bean, or some other kind of bean, but he's not built that way, being pretty big and not so slender." However, there's no use describing the game unless people 56 The Chicagoan can understand what's being said. Which seems to settle the matter of baseball announcers' vocabularies for the season! The Cubs-Card double header of April thirtieth, which lasted until about five minutes of eight, resulted in a bit of worry at nbc. Chase and Sanborn, scheduled at seven o'clock with a new show freed of Eddie Cantor, had no outlet in Chicago because WMAQ was carrying the game. The station has the reputation of having cut but one baseball game since its first broadcast of the sport in 1925. And that experience determined the present policy. When Bert Lahr, Lee Sims, Ilomay Bailey and Rubinoff failed to appear at seven, the nbc switchboard lighted up. Listeners were rerouted to wlw and wsm, 50,000 watters at Cincinnati and Nashville. The problem of just how much time baseball should have on the air is another of those little problems whose solution can be indefinitely postponed under the conditions of that expedient radio standard of "public interest, con venience, and necessity." Someone with an acid disposition, and no patriot, once remarked that radio for him had very little interest, was certainly no convenience, and much less a necessity. I'm not sure he still lives. While I'm on the problem page, the little feud which seemed impending last month between broadcasters and news papers quickly developed into action. The Associated Press has announced that henceforth all its news material must be restricted to thirty words when broadcast. The idea, of course, being that when a listener hears a certain news item, he will be so excited and interested that he'll run around the block post haste and spend his money for a paper. The Publishers were concerned with the listing of radio pro grams, too. A recommendation held that this service is advertising, and should be paid for. I suggest that theatre, sports, and financial reviews, and advance news of all pertinent activities, be likewise considered as advertisements. This radio business sometimes takes a happy turn, however. The sun came shining through on the new Old Gold programs. A cbs announcer, David Ross, who could sell me gold bricks on voice alone, admitted that one might not like his sponsor's cigarettes after a trial, but suggested the sporting thing of trying them for a day. The gratifying note about the announcement was that the decision actually was left to the listener, and not a single package was crammed down anybody's throat. Which is distinctly an innovation in cigarette advertising. I hope this is a sign of the tomorrows, both for the good of the public and the profession. Anyway, I bought a pack. But here's an unhappy one. The General Tire Company has hit upon an excellent office idea, but an annoying one when released on an unsuspecting public. Although not operative now, the plan is being groomed for next month. To each listener who discovers an automobile needing new tires, and sends in the number of the license plates, and the owner's name, a commission will be paid for the result ing sale of Generals, if any. This is making the state an accomplice in the sale of merchandise, and the audience accomplice in attending to other people's business. Next to the man who recommends me as a life insurance prospect, I can think of no more desirable victim for my spleen than the tire snooper. Choose your own weapons. A MUCH more pleasant contemplation is the diverting trifle in which appear the two young women who embell ished Revelry last month with their pictures. Phyllis and Helen, otherwise Mrs. John Garrity and Mrs. Harlan Ware. They appear in Phyllis and Fran\, heard mornings from WENR. This miniature has a spontaniety that is unusual. Lake Forest director Bob Wam- boldt, plus author Harlan Ware, combine their talents in producing livable and very real episodes. Helen's (Mrs. Garrity 's) baby voice is nicely assumed. One of the best bits of ensemble playing I've heard on the air occurred the morning that Roger Pryor was guest. It was effective radio acting. About two-thirds of this College Inn show is occupied by Jackie Heller, glorified midget singer. But he can't fool me. He's still hill-billy, singing popular songs. And a "swell guy" none the less, Maestro. Mrs. Ware and Mrs. Garrity are but two of the town's promi- nents who are radioing these days. Mrs. Ivia Marshall of society, and formerly the stage, is singing for nbc. Mrs. Hardwick Moseley has had herself christened the "red-headed lady of song" by kyw. And just a short while back, Harold McCormick whistled. He was one among a host of our leading citizenry who broadcast for the Chicago Friends of Music.

Mr. Herriot, on the other hand, turned out to be a humorist. In fact, he was more. He was an acrobat, because he seemed to be on the air every time I turned on my radio. One night he amused the audience gathered at the French Chamber of Commerce dinner, and the next morning, very bright, and quite early, he was kissing the corner'stone at La Maison Francaise in Radio City.

"THE POST" IN THE OLD DAYS A Journalistic Reminiscence (Begin on page 29) No wonder Tiffany Blake got ill in the grimy, stifling offices on West Washington Street, with high windows going down to the floor and making you feel as if the pit of your stomach would fall out. The air was so bad that I persuaded Eddie Westlake, Julian Mason and someone else to go with me on a deputation downstairs to Mr. Town. "We have come, Mr. Town, to speak to you about the ventilation "Ven-til'ation! What the hell is this you're giving me? Ventila' tion!" The man from Indiana visibly curled his lip at the highbrow word, and the deputation collapsed. About five every afternoon, just the same, you could eat the air in that office. It was an amazing flavor. 1 he best man on earth to work with was Leigh Reilly. He was managing editor. He had deep down in his system a subdued twinkle, a gleam at the bottom of the well. And from the bottom of that well, where his humor was, there was also a sight of the stars. He knew that a newspaper was a work of art and he knew that handling people was also a work of art. He understood these things because he was innately sensitive. He did not command. He suggested. But he had firmness in the fine line he gave to the work he created. The effort was too great. He had not enough money. We were terrifically overworked. But he knew another world outside the Loop. When Ibsen died, we alone had a full long article that same evening. When Tolstoy died we gave it full space. These things came into Leigh Reilly's universe, just as much as free speech for Emma Goldman in the town of the Haymarket Riots. We had fights. He was stung into anger at times, and he could hit hard. But we were given a free hand and quiet, steady encouragement by Leigh Reilly. He made me start the Chicago Evening Post Friday Literary Review. It was a thing not without its own special charac ter. We ran, for one thing, the first stuff written by Van Wyck Brooks. We had a London literary letter and a New York literary letter. In my first year I had a very warm letter from Arnold Ben nett. John Galsworthy sent me his signed photograph. Frank Harris wrote at vast length. We brought Shaw and Wells and Samuel Butler and the rest of them on the front page in Chicago. That was in 1910, and I was twenty 'seven. I remember asking Leigh Reilly to give me half time at half pay so that I could attend the University of Chicago. He laughed at me. So my university was the Chicago Evening Post. I wrote three editorials a day for it when I was twentyfour. We were young, timid, much in earnest. But we did our little best on that newspaper to make an oasis in the cultural desert. We seemed insipid to the regular fellows but we had a standard and we were our own fiercest critics. It was the man who stood on the bridge, Leigh Reilly, that made it a good paper. Ave atque vale. The Chicagoan ARTIST SAMPSON ACCENTUATES THE CLASSIC URBANITY OF LESLIE HOWARD, LEADING MAN OF MARY PICKFORD'S "SECRETS." BOULEVARD CINEMA The Carriage Trade Gets Another Run for Its Money By William R. Weaver ON the evening of April 28 the Playhouse, yclept World for good and sufficient reason, witnessed the nth return of the films to Michigan avenue. The idea that the smartest street in town is a fit and proper place for at least one intimate cinema, that the lack of such a one is a somewhat disgraceful commentary on the cultural appetites of the community and that the carriage trade is composed of just the right sort of people to lend it distinction as well as support, is as old as the motion picture. Oldsters present remem ber one Alfred Hamburger, forerunner of the Ascher Brothers who were forerunners of Balaban & Katz, in his last stand at the com panionable little Ziegfeld in what became the Blum building. Various ill-starred projects looking toward the establishment of Orchestra Hall as a kind of summer capital for film followers fared less memorably, but there was genuine regret when, four or five years ago, Mr. Fred Mindlin's truly smart programming of silent films at the Playhouse fell before the advance of the talkies, singies and dancies then sweep ing over the major auditoria. There should be rejoicing, then, in the knowledge that the present return of the films to the avenue is under the same knowing gentleman's shrewd auspices. A number of circumstances not immediately evident to the naked or spectator eye complicate the boulevard cinema idea and make it hazardous. Your boulevardier is not a notably constant fellow, nor steadfast of residence. Your boulevard casual, off his beaten trail and a little uneasy about it, is not a very dependable cinema con sumer either. The boulevard itself, a street to stroll if there is one in America, competes with the most eloquent box office in fair weather. It is to the carriage trade, therefore, in more than metaphorical sense, that the intimate boulevard cinema must look for its cash customers. In years agone the chauffeur- driven public was more sincere than faithful in endorsement of the boulevard cinema. There was never a lack of response to premieres, but not every night can be a first night. There was ever enthusiastic eulogy of the artistic aspect — the patter BE SLENDER Slenderness is desirable, and easily within Your reach. * Slenderness with new beauty of face is even more desirable, and it is equally within reach if you will entrust yourself to the care of Elizabeth Arden. * Too often weight reduction means diminishing good looks.

Tingling astringents correct every tendency to flabbiness and give the skin freshness and lustre. * It is this definite attention to the face as well as the figure, which makes Miss Arden's reducing treatments the first choice of women who give serious considera tion to appearance, comfort and health. * Ask about the Debutante Treatment ... a completely refreshing half- hour of cleansing and toning -with a fascinating new make - up.

ITALIAN ONE of approval and the clatter of tea cups kept many a plain citizen out of the place- — but devotion to the Russian classics in the rough that held the screen was skin deep. What Society destroys, willy or nilly, it first makes a fad. Fortunately, a good deal of water has passed under the hammer in the years while the boulevard has been without firsthand cinema. Today your boulevardier is a more constant, if because less solvent, fellow. And today your boulevard casual has the price of a show ticket in his jeans and a healthy curiosity to see for himself what manner of amusement these guys in spats and morning coats go for. Too, the carriage trade is back in the bucks, as their new friends phrase it, and a little broadened, deepened, tempered. More impor' tant, far, the Russian classics in the rough (which, in all honesty, were a good deal rougher than classic) have given screen way to staple stuff. The World Playhouse opened with Be Mine Tonight, an English musical comedy worthwhile on Michigan avenue, Halsted street or the Strand, and I am reliably informed that an adequate supply of similarly substantial program material awaits your pleasure. If I seem to have gone into this matter to needless depth, it is because I am deeply interested. I have been present at the birth of perhaps a dozen ventures of this kind in as many years, unfailingly diagnosing the case as hopeless and predicting speedy death. So firm has been my faith in the fundamental idea that I went so far as to prescribe, in one case, exact measures for the care and treatment of the patient, achieving a corpus delicti in record time. It is not with' out due forethought and some elation, then, that I prophecy a long life and a merry one for the World Playhouse. I think I detect in the present venture all of the essential ingredients of success. It will be a rather nice thing for the Boulevard if I'm right. Probably the best picture of the month, on all points, is Secrets, wherein the imperishable Pickford proves again how much finer a thing it is to be faithful to a profession than, as are so many lesser ladies of the screen, merely successful. I think few older arts have so true a handmaiden. It is Mary Pickford's delight' fully oldfashioned notion that an actress1 business is to act her head off at every opportunity, and that a producer's business is to make the best available story into the best possible picture at any and all cost. Being both, she matter 'of'factly supplies the world with its finest films. They are never more nor less than honest entertainment, meticulously manufactured, superbly wrought. It is long since one of them has stood the nation on its ears — longer since a celluloid lady has sought to invade her special province. The Pickford pre ductions are to themselves apart, and quite a bit above. Secrets is such a production. At the other end of the scale, King Kong roars its incredibly prosperous way toward a box office record. The animated miniatures of prehistoric beasts move jerkily against backgrounds doubly exposed to portray the activities of modern human beings scarcely less stupid. Intentionally fantastic, the scenario lacks the saving touch of a healthy imagination. As a shocker the picture is laughable. As entertain' ment it is shocking. As a commentary on the mental status of the cinema public, which grovels in mob obeisance and goes forth to urge all and sundry to go do likewise, it plumb staggers an honestly hopeful friend of the films whose opinion in the matter seems to be the only negative vote on record. Other pictures of the month are listed and advised about on the sixth page of the magazine. I have space for extended treatment here of only one other, Sweepings, and it is my good fortune to be able to submit, in lieu of my own critique, the learned findings of one who knows his Chicago of the period con- cerned far better than I. Mr. Boyden sums it up as follows : "You and I have often talked and even written about the relative merits and demerits of stage and screen. Although a diehard where the theatre is concerned, I am an admirer of the drama's robot sister, the talking picture. But there are times when I am filled with wonder at the murder committed by the geniuses who direct the pictures at which the world is alleged (in the ads) to marvel. "Last night I attended a picture entitled Sweepings, the supposed story of a well known Chicago family, written by a disgruntled ex' son'in-law of said family. Lionel Barrymore is featured. The story starts at the date of the Chicago Fire, 1871, when Barrymore as Daniel Pardway arrives in Chicago to make his fortune. Four children are born to Mr. Pardway forthwith. Historically speaking, these same children, or such of them as are still alive, are in their sixties. Their children are contemporaries of yours and mine. 60 The Chicagoan "Yet Pardway 's children are pictured in clothes of contemporary style; automobiles are shown which would not even have been imagined thirty years ago; and, mirabile dictu, there is a dial tele phone on the wall of the Everleigh Club, not of course so named in the picture; Lionel Barrymore, who would have been well over eighty to have used a dial phone, is never pictured as appearing more than sixtyfive. In other words, anachronism runs riot all over the film. "Your answer will be: What the hell, if it's a good story? I suppose you're right."

One summoned the fire department, one the police station and the other, her servants quarters. Sad as it may seem she had never had occasion to use them so on one historical evening when she had gone up stairs, firmly locked her door and retired for the night having nothing better to do she pushed them all. In less than no time the house was surrounded with fire engines, police wagons and people banging on doors and crawling in windows. The Little Old Lady stayed very quietly in her room behind the firmly locked door and no amount of knocking, calling or banging could get a word out of her. Finally one of the Firemen broke the door down. There was the Little Old Lady calmly sitting up in bed. The Fireman asked her what was wrong and she replied with a bright smile, "Oh, Nothing. I just pushed the Buttons to see if they would work." The Colin Campbells have a new, buff-colored cocker spaniel named, "Toddy."

Beartooth is just thirty-seven miles by pack train from Yellowstone Park too, so there are unlimited resources for interesting camping trips. Their capacity is twenty-five guests, with an additional group lim ited to thirty boys for their boys1 camp in July and August. This camp is a boy's idea of heaven, featuring as it does much riding and outdoor sports, trail trips through Yellowstone Park and the Montana Rockies, and three grand days at the Livingston Rodeo. Another popular ranch in this country is the well-known Valley Ranch, near Cody, Wyoming, on a fork of the Shoshone River in the Shoshone Forest. Three main trails into the big game country start from Valley and licensed guides conduct hunt' ing parties during the season. Here, too, if you want to give your son a real dose of western life you can start him in the Valley Ranch Winter School, a well-conducted prep school which gives the usual four year course (starting in October each year), with the additional joys of a personal saddle horse for each student, and a well- rounded program of outdoor sports including trapping, marksman ship, football, polo, baseball and the other sports. In the famous Big Horn country, the old cattle country, is a real, old-time cattle ranch — Bones Brothers. This ranch is open all year, and guests are allowed to participate in the actual ranching round-ups and branding. The best time here is in the middle of June when they hold the calf branding round-up or the middle of September for the beef cattle round-up. This is when they have a lot of high- jinks all about this territory — rodeos, Indian celebrations, county fairs — besides the usual sports of swimming, fishing, riding, and hunt ing and trapping in season. 64 The Chicagoan MISS JERREMS WEARS A NEW TWO-PIECE PLAID GINGHAM DRESS, MISS DICKINSON A WASHABLE SILK CREPE GOLF DRESS WITH A PLAID SWAGGER COAT AND BRIMMED CREPE SPORTS HAT, AND MISS GRAF A WHITE LINEN SPORTS SUIT WITH A NAVY HAND KERCHIEF, LINEN BLOUSE AND A NAVY CREPE SAILOR WITH WHITE PIQUE BAND. (KAUFMANN & FABRY PHOTOS.) The first dude ranch, as you should all know if you have ever bumped into Mary Roberts Rinehart, was started in this Big Horn Country by Howard Eaton some fifty years ago. He and his brothers built up this famous ranch to secure a great following of easterners. The work is now carried on by Howard's brother, Alden, and the younger generation of Eaton brothers. They are awfully good to green horsemen here and after a few seasons under their tutelage you can look a cowboy in the eye and feel quite self-respecting about your own feats. Two ranches run by Chicagoans in Montana offer just about everything one could ask for in the way of comfort. One is huge and one is limited to a few guests. The Rising Sun Ranches are two old cattle ranches — the Diamond J and the Nine Quarter Circle in which Julius Butler and a group of Chicagoans became interested and which were developed into splendid dude ranches. They are, however, managed by honest-to-goodness West erners. Here they breed fine thoroughbred horses and on their exten sive holdings have developed a large game and fish preserve. Gordon Ranch, eighty miles northeast of Missoula, is smaller but handsomely equipped with all the conveniences though it is an old ranch handed down through several generations of the Chicago Koesslers. The life is very informal and pleasant with facilities for fishing, swimming, climbing and hiking, hunting in season, and naturally riding — with riding lessons for neophytes. For those who cannot quite decide whether to ranch or not to ranch Northern Pacific has arranged a sort of intro ductory tour which may help you to make up your mind to a com plete ranch vacation next year. Brief visits to ranches have never been undertaken before, but on this Dude Ranch Detour transcon tinental travelers may leave the train at Helena and motor into the mountains for a day and a night each at the Seven-Up Ranch and at the E-Bar-L, with time for a spot of fishing and riding. It breaks the trip nicely and is worth thinking about if you can't spare the time for a month or so but hanker for a taste of ranch life.

Smyth Furniture Company, which had been recommended to the Major, was the scene of their shop ping expeditions. Mr. Smyth himself assisted them in selecting their furniture which was, of course, all in the latest mode. They purchased a beautiful hatrack which had a tall mirror in a gilt frame, an elaborate parlor suite consisting of several chairs, a sofa heavily carved and covered with shiny black horsehair, and a marble- top table. For the bedroom they purchased a carved black walnut bedstead, marble-topped dresser and wash-stand to match, a little work-table for Hannah and a small sewing|rocker. Other purchases included stoves, flowered carpeting with straw matting for a border, portieres, and lace curtains with fancy lambrequins. Hannah's letters to her parents contained vivid descriptions of each separate item for the new house. Thus "equipped the bride and groom ""started in housekeeping," and began gradually to take their place in the social life of their own particular neighborhood. Mr. Smyth and his wife, who were neighbors, called on them and hoped they would soon feel at home. This was the beginning of a life-long friendship between the two families. Mr. Smyth and the Major were keenly interested in politics, and Hannah and Mrs. Smyth found many things to talk about. That first winter they often went on sleighing parties with others in the neighborhood, sending word ahead to some country tavern ten or twelve miles out from the city, driving out in double sleighs, taking a violinist along with them, dancing, having supper, and returning home often as late as 2 o'clock in the morning. Together with the Smyths, the Teegardens joined a literary group, and the "Grass hoppers Club" which met about at different houses for dancing. Summer evenings were spent playing croquet, or sitting on door steps visiting together in the twilight. On October 9, 1871, came the great fire when the whole city was threatened with destruction. The Major and Mr. Smyth were gone all night helping to fight the flames which rushed onward and onward to the northeast, fanned by a high wind off the prairies. Hannah watched the conflagration from across the river and was terrified by the sight of great biasing pieces of roof and shingles which the wind carried through the flaming sky. Crowds of people poured across the bridge all night long, on foot and in carriages, carrying bird-cages, empty picture frames, armfuls of umbrellas, bags of bedding — any thing they could grab up in their flight. The flames and the tumult and the confusion made it a veritable Day of Judgment. No one in the whole city slept that night. Hannah and Mrs. Smyth, thankful that the flames had not moved westward, gave shelter to as many people as they could accommodate. Soon tents were put up and rows of wooden cabins, and the work of clearing away and rebuilding was begun. Hannah and Mrs. Smyth were among the group of women who met at Mrs. William Blair's house on South Michigan Avenue to distribute clothing and supplies to the needy. With the new city which swiftly arose came a new outlook, and society emerged from its earlier puritanic influences, acquiring manners and customs of grace and distinction as befitting one of the fastest growing cities of the world. Many strange attempts at decoration were introduced into drawing-rooms, such as gilded rolling-pins and chopping-bowls, hung about on the walls. A bamboo easel with a painting usually stood in one corner of the room with an embroidered "throw" draped over the top of the picture; in another corner stood a snow-shovel with a scene painted on it, and a large red ribbon bow ornamenting the handle. "Even chair legs were gartered with big ribbon bows, and cheese-cloth was considered chic stuff for drawing-room curtains." Hannah's children and the Smyth children were now attending gay skating parties together and dancing school. Formal dinner parties became the favorite method of entertaining among the older people, the hour often being set for as late as seven o'clock. Some of the large houses on the north side of the city were now boasting of but lers, and the red faced Swedes or slouchy negroes whom one had been accustomed to see driving the family carriages about town gave way to stiffly erect coachmen. Hannah and the Major who had moved with their family to a larger house on South Michigan Avenue, now had one of the latter to drive them about. And then one night, Mr. Smyth's furniture store which had escaped the great conflagration twenty years previously, was reduced to ashes by fire. Major Teegarden found his friend surveying the smoking ruins early the next morning. It was a disheartening sight — everything was destroyed. When an onlooker observing the two men standing together sauntered up and asked casually, "What are you going to do now, Mr. Smyth?" that sturdy-hearted gentleman replied, "Wait until it cools off, and start in again." Which is precisely what he did. Out of the ruins of the old store, rose a much larger and finer store filled with beautiful furniture, an eight-story building which was then, and is still today, the largest building in Chicago devoted exclusively to the selling and display of furniture, floor coverings, draperies, and household goods. T. he year 1893 was a memorable one. Mr. Smyth was made chairman of the Republican National Committee, and the Major rejoiced in this high political honor which had come to his friend. It was also the year of the Columbian Exposition when Chicago became the center of the world's attention. Hannah and the Major together with all their friends and neighbors became absorbed with the problem of refurnishing their homes for visitors to the Fair. The John M. Smyth Furniture Company's advertisements in the Daily "Klews carried the head-line "Prepare Your Home for World's Fair Visitors" and showed illustrations of bric-a-brac stands in fancy woods with plush tops and polished brass trimmings; carpet- rockers for $2.00; elegant patent rockers with handsomely polished oak frames upholstered in silk tapestry with silk plush trimmings for $12.50. Hannah and the Major acquired for their upstairs living- room a folding-bed which their relatives from Iowa could not be persuaded to sleep in, but were as interested to see as' they were in viewing many of the sights of the Fair. It was a never-to-be-forgotten summer. People from all over the world flocked to Chicago. Artists, journalists, titled foreigners, oriental potentates, farmers from the south and west, all rubbed shoulders in a happy cosmopolitanism as they viewed the beautiful white palaces connected by colonnades and bridges which were a dream of beauty mirrored in the waters of the lagoons and lake. Gondola rides, tea in the Japanese tea house, the Court of Honor by moonlight, the Streets of Cairo, lunch in a lovely old Viennese restaurant, bands playing, the Midway with its costumes of various nations — it was all a part of an enchanted city. The whole world came, and saw, and marvelled. When it was over, Chicago found itself with a new and fabulous reputation for beauty and size and power. It began to adopt truly metropolitan standards of living. The Fair marked the beginning of a new and larger life. And now another Fair, another eve of anticipation. The city has reached a maturity. Its builders and its men of vision have con trived once more against heavy odds and tremendous discouragements to draw the attention of the world to Chicago. The John M. Smyth Furniture Company is once again advertising "Prepare for World's Fair Visitors." And a third generation of Teegardens is purchasing from a third generation of Smyths modern furniture for a modern pent-house perched high above the city streets. Thus does history repeat itself. Thus does a fine old institution of a large city, whose name is replete with romance, continue to serve its people, and descendants of an old Chicago family prepare to welcome a new generation of visitors to a new World's Fair. Wax- Works LTAYDN SYMPHONY IN C MAJOR (Salomon Set)— Victor, by The London Symphony Orchestra. Conducted by Hans Weis- bach. Musical Masterpiece Series, Album M-140. — Franz Joseph Haydn's voice had little bearing on his success. Genealogy had little to do with it. At every turn he seemed to catch opportunity rocket ing. Crowded halls always greeted "Papa Haydn." It is he who gave us the form of the symphony, the sonata and the quartet. Only after England discovered Haydn did Germany acclaim him. A con tract with the concert-manager, Johann Peter Salomon, called for twelve symphonies. Haydn's Symphony in C Major is the first one of the twelve in the Salomon set. It was recorded in London last year in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Haydn's birth. Sim- "STEINWAY Is never an extravagancey — and particularly now it's a fine investment.

One is repeatedly impressed with Rimsky-Korsakov's wizardy in orchestration. His re-orchestration brought Boris Godounov, unfinished by Moussorgsky and Borodin, enduring fame. His May T^ight is a Red Seal recording of permanent charm. Song of the Flea (Goethe-Moussorgsky) and Pilgrim's Song (Tolstoi-Tschaikowsky) . Victor. Lawrence Tibbett. — There is more than one reason for having Song of the Flea in your home; first, Lawrence Tibbett sings it; second, it is one of the most descriptive bits in wax. It is a Goethe-Moussorgsky concoction and well-known conservatoire repertoire. Tibbett 's rendition is unforget- able. Third, Pilgrim's Song is on the other side of the record. It is sung with true Tibbett mastery. The Raven. Words by Edgar Allen Poe. Music by Arcady Dubensky. Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Ben jamin De Loache, Reader. Victor No. 2000 A.

It isn't often that the top notchers of polo will risk tiring or injuring their mounts just to put on a show. The special matches have whetted the polo appetites of Chicago fans to a razor edge, and next year will find crowds clamoring at the doors to get in. Almost all of the boys who played in the Championships have vowed to come back for the World's Fair, and that will mean some first rate outdoor polo. With these boys coming back, the excel lent local teams, and perhaps an Indian Prince bringing an inter national team here, some beautiful outdoor polo should result.

In the home we are busy refurbishing and dressing up for the summer, in the shops gay spring and summer clothes flutter before us — every one is making plans for what promises to be one of the best summers this town has seen in some three years or more. And beauty must not lie sleeping in the midst of all this stir and bustle. There is trouble ahead if she does. This is the time to take that quarterly inventory of one's assets and liabilities, to have a searching look at one's hair, complexion and figure and to follow up that searching look with the personal refur bishing which is quite as important as the household renovation. .A. bit of summer news comes to us in a letter from Madame Helena Rubinstein, who has been spending the past few months studying the effects of sun and outdoor life on com plexions along the French and Italian Rivieras. From this study she has evolved some lovely new makeup combinations which will tone in beautifully with the warm glow induced by summer suns. Even if you haven't as yet acquired this glow you can simulate it with her summer makeup and tone in nicely with your vivid frocks and all the gay outdoors. The basis for all summer complexions, says Madame Rubinstein, must be a warm-toned foundation which she has produced in her luscious Creme Cote d'Azur in a glowing Flesh Tan — neither too dark nor too bricky but just tinted enough to cover any winter pallor or sallowness. Then, for brunettes she recommends vivid makeup — the Red Poppy Rouge and lipstick and blue iridescent eye shadow with her new glistening mascara — makes you look very water nymphy — and a warm-toned powder such as her new Gypsy powder. Blondes and fair-skinned types should go in for orange tones in summer make-up, and the Rubinstein Red Coral Rouge and lipstick with Peachbloom powder is ideal for them. Both fingernails and toenails should be manicured and pedicured, for the latter are as conspicuous as the former in summer. Brunettes can match their rouge with Red Poppy 7^[ail Groom while the blondes can blend into their color ing with Coral 7<[ail Groom. It's fun — and attractive. You probably need a permanent but that doesn't call for a quick dash to the salon to have the job done in a twinkle. Between permanents and at the change of the season is the time for a careful study of your hair condition — by an expert — and a few treatments to rejuvenate it and prepare it to receive the permanent $3 m EH OLD WORLD TREASURES ARRIVE for the opening of our new SHOP of SILVER & APPOINTMENTS For months Chicago's most distinctive shop has been in the planning.

COME FOR A WEEKEND — YOU'LL STAY A MONTH. fittingly. This is so important, as the permanent is twice as beautiful and lasting if the hair is healthy and happy when the wave is given. So hie yourself off to a good salon and build now towards a head that will do you glory all summer, instead of getting stringy, dry and straw color under the strain of summer sports. You will enjoy a series of Ogilvie treatments which rejuvenate the hair wonderfully and which you may carry on at home or when you travel after you have learned the technique from your salon attendant. Their home hair kit is a nice compact arrangement with the right shampoo, tonics and pomade selected for your particular condition; and a very handy item to have around in summer when you may be far from your salon. Ogilvie treatments are given at Mandel Brothers, Saks-Fifth Avenue, and other shops around town. Another fine treatment is given in Field's Lanchere salon; two or three of these and you will be thrilled with the new lustre of your locks. Their tonic is particularly refreshing, with the tang of herbs which perks one up so and feels so grand on the scalp. Here, and at Kreiter's salon, they use the steamer machine which I always find enjoyable and beneficial. As the attendant massages warm oil into your scalp the machine distils a fine gentle spray of steam which opens the cells and forces the oil into them, so much more comfortably and effectively than the old hot towel method. Madame Elise in the Mailers Building is another well-known specialist in hair treatments and uses her own preparations evolved from fine German scientific formulae. She is also exceedingly popular among the gray-haired ilk for she is one of those rare souls who can really restore gray or faded hair and do an artistic and thoroughly natural job of it. And of course you remember that we have a Chicago branch of the famous Frances Fox Institute whose hair treatments are famous all over the world. Then with your hair in shape and ready for a smart new wave life promptly takes on a pleasanter aspect. Finds of the last few months in the waving and cutting section are Arnold Fax at Mandel's, Charles and Phillip at Field's, A. P. Kreiter at his own salon on north Michigan, and Alfred who has returned to Saks' salon from his winter in Miami with his old technique enhanced by a lot of clever new ideas. Pierre, at present in Paris, will be back at Saks by the first part of June so that even if Antoine himself does not appear here (though he is scheduled for a visit some time soon) Pierre will give us the benefit of the master's newest ideas. The searching look, when it is turned on the complexion, will probably reveal a slightly roughened and dry skin, perhaps some new little lines under the eyes, a general drabness which makes us face spring suns and spring clothes rather fearfully. That is almost invariably the toll of a winter in our brisk winds, sooty air and tense activities. There's nothing better for this discouraging condition than a restful hour in the soft chaise lounge of a salon where firm and gentle hands will arouse the sluggish cells to action and soothe away the tired lines.

Even one Herbal Mask treatment at Helena Rubinstein's, for instance, will fit you out with a practically new complexion for spring. This masque is a pleasantly thin cream — not one of those plaster-like affairs which go on like mortar — and it smells something lovely. While it firms the contour and refines the pores it is yet rich in oils which do a soothing and nourishing job at the same time. They call it their "cocktail" and you will feel as if you had one when you emerge from under it. Drab skins mean a sluggish circulation and that's why Dorothy Gray's circulation treatment is such an excellent spring tonic, for we nearly all suffer from a lazy circulation in our skin cells at this time. Your neck and face are patted briskly until they glow pleasantly and are further stimulated by their clean-smell ing tingly Circulation Cream. You'll glow like a baby when it's removed and the glow remains for days, because the treatment gets to the underlying cells. Another mask treatment which clears the skin beautifully and refines the pores is given at Elizabeth Arden's where they beat fresh eggs into a rich cream to make a divine tautening and nourishing mask. Nor need you feel uninteresting and unspringlike on your busiest days now, for Elizabeth Arden offers a quick pick-up treat ment which does wonders of stimulating, nourishing and rejuvenating in just half an hour's time. This treatment is all a young skin needs at any time, and it is a godsend for the oldster's rushed periods. A nice little set which the debutante and sub- debutante should acquire is Harriet Hubbard Ayer's new combination of cream soap and complexion brush. The soap is very rich and not drying to the skin at all, and the brush is so fine that it doesn't irritate the very sensitive skin. Two or three times a week or every night the skin of the face and neck can be stimulated by a thorough scrubbing with this brush. It is an ideal daily cleansing method for young skins, which do not require excessively rich creams, and it is especially good in the treatment of blackheads, acne and other skin troubles. Another trouble that will soon be with us again is the sunburn question. It isn't just a question of to tan or not to tan, but a question of keeping your skin in healthy condition while it is exposed to sum mer suns and winds. Both these elements are very drying, coarsening and harmful if taken with too much enthusiasm and too little discre tion. But they can be wonderfully beneficial if the matter is con- FAITH YOUR baby's eyes tell of his faith and confidence in you.

Everyone should have a good sunburn cream at hand and use it as a preventive not a corrective. About the first of these to come to my desk this year is Dorothy Grays lovely Sunburn Cream, a smooth white semi-liquid preparation which has been popular for several years. Since it is the light of the sun and not its heat that causes burning and blistering this cream is concocted to keep out the injurious infra-red rays while it filters through the beneficial ultra-violet rays. So, we can achieve tan without burn and, since the cream is nourishing too, it prevents the skin from becoming coarse and leathery and preserves the soft smooth texture. It is refreshingly delicate in its scent (nice for summer) and absolutely greaseless, vanishing quickly as soon as it is applied. Better use it faithfully, especially on these first sunny days which often wreak their havoc before we realize what is happening. CENTURIES OF PAINT A Summary of an Exhibition To Be Held at the Art Institute By Edward Millman FORTY-THREE years before the exhibit of paintings and sculp ture at the World's Columbian Exposition, Courbet, one of the pillars of Modern Art, published his manifesto setting forth his ideas of a rational naturalism. A dearth of manifestos followed and there was revolution in the art world, but the Fine Arts exhibit of the last world's fair hung smugly on its walls with its dribbling senti mental inanities, many of them heroic in size and with a highly polished veneer, dead to the crea tive spirit rumbling in France — dead to the stream of spiritual and in tellectual effort. During the time of the '93 Fair the vogue was the popular pseudo-classical canvas. They were bought by art lovers and collectors but since then have in the main been supplanted by significant paintings. Proof of this will be shown at the second world's fair on ,,, D ,, , .,. , w n Les raveurs — by Vincent Van feogh. May 27, 1933 at the Art Anonymous Loan. Institute of Chicago, offi cially designated as the Fine Arts Department of A Century of Progress Exposition. With the ex ception of Whistler's Por trait of His Mother (lent by the Louvre Museum, Paris, through the Mu seum of Modern Art, New York), all exhibits come from American private and public collections. Twenty-three museums and over two hundred in dividual collectors have contributed to this exhibit.

The first section forming a background for the second and third, will contain thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth century paintings by artists of Italy, Spain, France, Germany, England and the United States. In this first section one will have the opportunity to view a number of galleries devoted specifically to primitive painters. Among them are Holbein, Jean Clovet, the seven panels from the Amiens School, a group of Cranachs, Giovanni Bellini and Botticelli. Among the Sixteenth Century Italians to be shown are Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese. Baroque and Rococo Italian Painting will have a gallery. Tiepolo, Guardi, Piazritta, Canaletto and Magnasco are among this group. The Dutch seventeenth century masterpieces will be displayed in one large gallery. Van Dyck, Rembrandt, Rubens, Pieter de Hooch, Hobbema, Jan Steen, and other Dutch masters will be represented. In the Spanish wing there will be ten magnificent paintings by El Greco. Among them are The Assumption of the Virgin (owned by the Institute), and View of Toledo from the Metropolitan Collec tion. Goya will be represented with a number of examples, as well as Morales, Maso and Ribera. Eighteenth century English Painting will show many of the por traitists of the period. Among them are Gainsborough, Raeburn, Laurence and Turner. Poussin, Claude, Frogonard, Chardin, Boucher, Ingres and David, representing seventeenth and eighteenth century France, lead us into the next section, a "Century of Progress in Paint."

Another series of rooms beginning with twelve examples by Monet, Degas, Cezanne (the only one man room in the exhibition), Manet, Renoir, Gauguin, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Henri Rousseau, complete the impressionist group. Matisse and Picasso continuing the nineteenth century tradition with the new experiments of the twentieth, will be combined in one gallery. In the American wing of this section, a gallery of portraits of the Colonial and Federal periods including works by Copley and Stuart will be displayed. Sargent, Homer, Eakins, Ryder — the so-called American "masters" — will be represented by works drawn from private sources seldom available to the public. The famous Whistler's Mother will be among the several examples by this painter. Mary Cassat, the American woman identified with Degas and Manet, will be represented with a group. A number of works by Duveneck, Blakelock, Inness, Prendergast, Tuachtman, Arthur B. Davies and Bellows will be shown. The third section will contain seven galleries of contemporary American painting. This exhibit will be rather retro spective in character and only one work by each artist will be shown, including a representation of works by Chicagoans. International contemporary painting will include work by groups of various countries and the final painting gallery in the sequence will be given over to "abstractions." This gallery is international in character and will include most of the inventors of this school. Unfortunately the transportation of sculpture is prohibitive. How ever, the institute promises a show with some highly interesting examples to be scattered through the corridors of the first and second floors, mainly contemporary in character, having examples by Maillol, Bourdelle, Rodin, Despiau, Lembruck, Kolbe, Mestrovic, Milles, Epstein and a group of American contemporaries. In addition to these shows there will be added a print exhibition, closely paralleling the survey of painting. It will be in two sections- prints by old masters and a century of progress in print making, arranged in sequence to show the technical and artistic development of etching, engraving and lithography. This all promises to be the most significant exhibit ever held in this country and a far cry from the exhibit of our last world's fair. Credit is due to the Art Institute trustees, its staff and most of all Dr. Harshe, the director, for the intelligence and taste displayed in the assem bling of this tremendous show. This is a rare opportunity to view masterpieces seldom seen by art lovers. PATRICK A. NASH— DEMOCRAT A Personality Sketch of the Man Behind the Throne (Begin on page 33) Burning Blaze. He was a bedraggled bar gain when the Nashes picked him up for a song, but he was the leading youngster of 1931 (the Post and Paddock stakes brought his owners $47,500 on their $1,000 investment) and almost a cinch to win the Derby last year, when he was cut down in an over night race a few days before the big event. At this writing, a Nash filly named At Top has just worked a 1:41 1/5 mile at Churchill Downs — one of the fastest miles turned in by any of the 1933 Derby candidates. Politics is No. 3 among Pat Nash's interests — the first political boss Chicago has had since John Wentworth, with whom it wasn't No. 1 . When business permits — and Pat is 70 now, and the boys are both out of Notre Dame and able to look after things pretty well — he grabs a train for Lexington or out to one of the local tracks, and with a heavy black cigar in operation (he smokes too many of them, like U. S. Grant) he appraises his horses' workouts or sits back and watches the Shandon silks come down the stretch with the best of them. With Pat Nash, sewers come first, stables next, and then politics. But the gods raised him, as we have noted, high in his No. 3 avocation. They have been beckoning to him for years but he has always sidestepped them. In 1922 he was boomed for mayor, but he gave the boom no encouragement, and in Chicago politics booms die 74 The Chicagoan unless they are encouraged — and "encouragement" has various meanings. In 1924, the teachers' federation wanted him to be super intendent of the Board of Education, and Mayor Dever offered him the job, but Pat turned it down. In 1927 he broke for a time with Dever, and allied himself with Cermak and Paddy Carr in an abortive threat to take the party control from Brennan and elect Carr mayor. In 1931, Cermak gave him the chairmanship of the county Demo cratic committee, and the blighted leadership of the Irish fell into Nash's lap. He did not share the personal hate of Cermak that the old-line "Sullivan men" cherished, and as Tony enlarged his efforts to amalgamate the disgruntled Irish Pat became an increasingly power ful figure on the local scene. The events of the past two months are pretty much a matter of public record. Nash's intimacy with Cermak, his leadership of the local party and the ascending star of the Irish all qualified him for the job of Tony's successor. The party councils recognized him as the only available party leader who could be trusted — none of the younger aspirants would trust each other, and with good reason. Besides, the Cermak myth was still flourishing, and the belief that Nash was the man to "carry on the late Mayor Cermak's policies" was attractive to most of the voters. That the current City Council of Chicago should be permitted to select a mayor was a harrowing prospect at best. It was futile to suggest men like Mr. Sexton and Prof. Merriam, aldermen know when they are well off. The name of M. S. Szymczak, who is about as able and clean a politician as there is anywhere, was not even mentioned — no more Slavs for this great American city. No, it had to be an organization man and an Irishman. So they offered the job to Pat Nash, the Boss, and Pat Nash turned it down when his family convinced him that he wasn't as young as he used to be and that the next Mayor of Chicago was going to have his hands full. Then Boss Nash scratched his grey-bristled chin a while and said, "Ed Kelly." When the City Council had gone through the smoky motions of electing Ed Kelly and the cameramen were shooting off their flashlights, Moe Rosenberg, somewhere down on the floor of the chamber, hollered to Tom Courtney, who was getting in the pictures, "Where's Pat?" And Tom Courtney hollered back, "He wouldn't come." And a few nights later, when Ed Kelly was being inaugurated, and all the two-spots were taking bows, the crowd hollered for Pat Nash. But Pat couldn't be found. He had grabbed a train for Lexington, to see how that filly was shaping up for the Derby. Antd so we come to the third way in which Pat Nash is an anomaly in Chicago politics. He is a modest man. Not modest in the far-sighted manner of Calvin Coolidge, but aggressively, immobilely modest. His nature fits him admirably for the role of Warwick. He has never been an interview-giver — not even when the interviews were sought. He has never set his cap for society, and the Nashes live and talk and think as they did fifty years ago. He is an uncompromising wet, as all Irishmen, and indeed all men, should be. The Nashes are family men, and in the old Irish way. The three brothers are each other's closest friends, although Pat has drawn to him such men as Henry Horner, Alfred Austrian, Fred Upham and Jesse Holdom. And he has been able, somehow, to be loyal to such men as these and to be loyal at the same time to such men as Roger Sullivan and Tony Cermak, and to be loyal to the Italians and the Poles and the Irishmen who have worked for him for twenty-five years and who will quit digging sewers for anyone in order to dig sewers for Pat Nash. Like most men-behind-the-throne, Nash is a good listener, and a short, unembroidered talker. He has no genius for the limelight, and he leaves no kissed babies or glowing phrases behind him. The arts, including literature, interest him no more than they interest most politicians, but here too he differs from the mine run of ambitious men by refusing to pretend that they do interest him. His taciturnity serves him in the stead of the garish circumlocution which most men who want to conceal things resort to. He is calm for an Irishman, intractable for an Irishman, and devoid of the dramatics — and there fore of much of the color — that blesses the Irish temperament in song and story and reality. His large, long face reveals his appreciation of other men's blarney as well as his ability to see through it. But there is no blarney on the sending end of Pat Nash. The Nash interviews run pretty much to form : "Are you going to be mayor, Mr. Nash?" "I am not."

And his manner in secret meeting, as observed by the keyhole experts, is no different: "You have selected me unanimously as your leader. My choice for acting mayor is Alderman Corr. He is an old friend of mine. Now I'll see if you will back me up." There is something in the man of an honest Tweed, a bashful Bryan, and a Mark Hanna without a McKinley. With a little more ambition and a lot more ruthlessness he might have set up bigger kings than Tony Cermak, Paddy Carr, Al Horan, Edward J. Hughes, Joe McDonough, and Ed Kelly. But the Lincolns come from Springfield; Chicago is not to be recommended to prospective king-makers. And who wants to be a king-maker? Or a king? Pat Nash is a business man and a family man, and for amusement he likes to race horses and take a modest hand in the poker game of politics. When he dies he'll go to Heaven because he has been honest, according to his lights, and loyal. Al Smith will be there, and that will make it bearable. It will be a little lonely at first, but a nag will turn up that nobody wants, and someone will want a sewer dug, and U. S. Grant will have a box of cigars. And Pat Nash will be happy.

The Palmer House found it essential to set aside four eve nings to accommodate its guests for the opening of the Empire Room dinner-supper club (called the Imperial Room by the Americans society page caption writer) . Leading the list of celebrities who are making their first appearance in any floor show in Town are Veloz and Yolanda, without doubt the world's outstanding dance team. They came to the Empire Room after establishing a record run of seventy-six weeks on the St. Regis roof and another long engagement at the Central Park Casino. Inter nationally famous, they have appeared at the Sevilla-Biltmore in Havana and the Embassy Club in Miami. And they were in the late great Ziegfeld's last show, Hot Cha. Before coming to America they played with Chevalier in London and were also at the Mayfair and the Cafe de Paris. The Abbott International Dancers support Veloz and Yolanda.

I The Chicagoan LITTLE JACKIE HELLER OF THE MELODIOUS VOICE WHO WILL SOON BE BACK WITH BEN BERNIE AND ALL THE LADS AT THE COLLEGE INN. Vallee in the last edition of Scandals. Judith Barron is the "blue"" singer — fresh from the Central Park Casino. The music for the dancers is furnished by Richard Cole and his Empire Orchestra. This organization was chosen from more than forty bands to grace the hotel's new dinner-supper room. Richard Cole brings new music to Chicago's dance enthusiasts. His delight ful dance arrangements and inimitable renderings of exquisitely superb orchestrations have been enjoyed by but an exclusive few locally. For the past two seasons he has played for the Opera Club, and this social season those attending eleven debutante parties danced to his music. His will soon be an outstanding name on radio as arrange ments have been completed for him to broadcast regularly over WGN and one of the major networks. Visitors to A Century of Progress will cer tainly have a lot offered up for their approval in the way of night life this summer. Everyone in the buz. is making great plans. Chez Paree will be air conditioned and cooled in the most modern manner. The suave Harry Richman is still in charge of the ceremonies there, and the floor show is plenty smart. He has with him some of his former Club Richmand entertainers, Florence and Alvarez and Francis Faye. The latter sings husky blue numbers and plays her own accompaniment on the piano. Ben Pollak and his orchestra provide the music, of course, and the girls of the line are as well trained and beautiful a group as we have seen in many a moon. On the Fair Grounds the Pabst Blue Ribbon Casino will be ready to do business on May 23. It's located at the south end of Northerly Island. Ben Bernie, always and forever the Old Maestro, and all the Lads will be there, as well as Buddy Rogers and his band, Guy Lom bardo and his Royal Canadians and Tom Gerun and his orchestra. There will be continuous dancing from noon till closing time, and in addition to the large Casino and dance floor, there will be a summer garden and a unique lunch bar modeled after the Brown Derby in Hollywood. The prices will be moderate, and the total seating capacity will be 3,500, making it the largest and most elaborate cafe on the Fair Grounds. Between the Casino and the outdoor pavillion will be a revolving band stand so that insiders and outsiders may enjoy the music equally. The lighting and color scheme is designed by Holabird and Root, and will be something entirely new in cafe and cabaret history. The operation of the Casino will be under the direction of the College Inn. The Dance Ship will be a different sort of night life spot, too. Also on the Fair Grounds, it will be modeled exactly after a modern steamship, with the exception, of course, of the engine ^SYgain~~~ihe J\endezvous of Distinguished Visitors to (jkicago THE LACKSTONE Re-opens May 15 Gala festivities will mark the reopening of Chicago's "Queen of Hotels," newly reappointed throughout. The patrician history of the Blackstone remains, and with it the quiet exclusiveness, the faultless hospi tality and many faces familiar to accustomed guests. It is but "a stone's throw" from A Century of Progress, added glamour for the eager guest.

The huge dining salon will have 14,000 square feet of dancing space on upper and lower decks and a ninety foot bar. There will also be a lounging and promenade deck, and on the after deck, over the lake, will be steamer chairs. The staff will be made up of seamen — rather the Dance Ship will be manned by a crew of ex'sailors as floor men, ex'Steamship stewards as waiters and captained by an old sea dog who was on the ocean for fifty years. There will be two orchestras. Ralph Gallet's new club, the Club Royale, will be open by the time this journal is on the stands and in the mail. The location, at 426 S. Wabash, seems ideal for World's Fair patronage. Jack Waldron, versatile song-and'dance man is M. C. And Nancy Kelly, one-time Fox film actress, heads the show which has been modeled into something polished and different by Eddie Court, also a Fox filmer, but from the direction-production side. Charlie Pierce and his band turn out the dance music. Out on the southside, also convenient for Fair visitors, is a unique little night harbor, The Tavern. It's near the south entrances of the Fair Grounds, at 41st and Ellis. Florence Lyons is hostess and doubles on the piano. From time to time she plays numbers of her own composition. Vern Quinn, on the sax, is a talented young man who ought to be watched by the name-band leaders. George Best is the table-singer, with guitar, and likewise introduces numbers he has written himself. The Tavern is small and intimate, interior decorated as its name would suggest — a very pleasant and inexpensive addition to the Town's night life. Faith Bacon, Follies and Vanities star, does her famous fan dance at the cozy little Paramount. It's rather sensational, and it is daring — for Chicago night life at least. Billy Carr, who looks a great deal like Al Jolson (he could hardly double for him, however, because he is a mite of a fellow), is the efficient master of ceremonies. Sid Lang and his orchestra play, and the bar is a swell sojourning spot if you don't feel like dancing. The Hi-Hat Club is one of the newer places. Louis Falkenstein is the host and there are four big shows nightly. Jack Walsh, who used to work with Ted Healy, is master of ceremonies and the acts are: the four dancing Hollywood Debutantes, Berley and Ludlow, dance team; Nellie Easton, soubrette. Elmer Falkenstein and his orchestra, with Jimmy Cassidy at the piano, play. The silver bar is magnificent.

Suite 502 Dearborn 8576 conversation, and to aid — as good wines have always aided — digestion and health. It has been so long to, since American hostesses have had a variety of wines at their command that it will take some time to acquire the art of gracious wine service and wine drinking, so that it isn't a bit too early to start practicing with these lighter wines, against Der Tag which will bring in a flood of seven to twenty per centers within two years or so. Already on the market are very fine wines which are full strength as far as body is concerned but which have had part of the alcohol removed, and some very pleasant carbonated wines. You may pur' chase the carbonated wines as such or add a carbonated water like White Rock or Billy Baxter Club Soda to one of the dealcoholized products for a very refreshing and healthful drink. Europeans, you know, dilute many of their wines with seltzer for everyday dining and wining and thus have a product no stronger than ours. The ideal setting for wines is, of course, the dinner; and if it is done nicely there is nothing that will add more verve and graciousness than a colorful sequence of wines. For our practice years we have now available some excellent Burgundy, Rhine Wine (the Riesling type), Claret (Medoc type), and white wine of the Sauterne type, as well as Red and White Champagnes. These are offered by the old house of Mouquin. The California vintners are producing some very fine Burgundy and Claret types. So — we have something with which to start. First of all there are three divisions which the hostess must keep in mind in assembling her wines: 1. Dry or sour wines 2. Sweet wines 3. Champagne or sparkling wines. Wine is called dry when all or nearly all of the grape sugar has been fermented out. With the sugar gone the natural fruit acids of the grape are emphasized and give that pleasant tart taste to dry wine. Dry wines may be red or white — the red drys being Claret, Bur' gundy, Cabernet, etc. The white dry wines are made either of white grapes or from dark or black grapes which are lightly pressed, and include Riesling, Sauterne, etc. The dry wines are the most delight' ful table wines as they are light, refreshing, and supply valuable fruit acids which really are good for us as well as pleasant. When more sugar remains in the wine it is a sweet wine, pleasant for after'dinner or dessert courses. These are also "good medicine,1'' Clarence True Wilson to the contrary notwith standing. They are decidedly tonic and frequently recommended by physicians for anyone run down in body and spirit. One of the joys of convalescence is sherry beaten with an egg, and in Europe a favorite remedy for run-down systems is one or two teaspoons of olive oil beaten into port. Champagne, of course, is the "party" drink, par excellence. It is delightful not only because it effervesces so prettily but because it has a nice snap on the tongue and a delicate bouquet. If we must be medicinal, it's good for nervous people and of course the perfect thing for nausea or seasickness. If you are going in for variety, as you should, you will perhaps start with a pony of sherry as an appetizer. Oysters or soup call for a dry white wine such as Riesling, Sauterne or Hock. Fish should be accompanied by a sweet white Sauterne. Then, with a flourish, Claret comes on with the entree. With game there is nothing better than Burgundy, though you may have Champagne if you choose. Champagne or a sweet wine such as Port is best with dessert, and Burgundy with the cheese. Of course each wine requires its own special treatment. No wine should be kept at an icy temperature in a refrigerator. Even cham pagne, which must be served very cold, should be chilled quickly, not long. White wines should be fairly cold— about fifty degrees. The Tomato Juice should dress for ^ di, inner Tomato juice is so good to look at and so good for us — let's dress up the taste a bit and make it the perfect drink. Easy to do: just add half a teaspoon of Lea & Perrins Sauce to each regular portion (a teaspoon to a full 8-ounce tumbler).

RECIPE-OF-THE-MONTH TOR years and years now people have been flocking to Jim Ireland's whenever they thought of seafood, and the lobster rampant has become a sort of escutcheon for that establish ment. And well it might be, you might say, if you ever tasted the Lobster Thermidor created here by Chef Stanwick who has been doing it for some eighteen years at Ireland's and before that with Rector s in New York. That he is willing to disclose his method is a surprise, but we seized the recipe before he had time to change his mind: LOBSTER THERMIDOR (for 4 people) Two 2 pound lobsters, boiled 20 minutes. Split each one in half and remove meat, saving the shells. Dice lobster meat. Add 2 ounces fresh mushrooms; chop fine 1 green pepper, 1 pimento, and 4 shallots, peel 2 tomatoes, remove the seeds and chop. Add these to the mushrooms and lobster meat and braise in butter for ten minutes. Add 1 cup heavy cream sauce and 1 cup cream, and cook five minutes, adding a dash of chopped parsley. Season to taste. Fill the half shells, cover with bread crumbs and brown in the broiler, garnishing with lemon and parsley. TO READ OR NOT TO READ That Is} Still, the Question By Marjorie Kaye THOSE paraders were unpaid teachers. They were not authors, literary critics and publishers' representatives intent upon lynching your oratrix for her expressions of policy in the April number. There were, I understand, a few select indignation meet ings, and a few letters were written. Most of these, however, were from readers who thought rather well of the principles laid down. Accordingly, reviews of the books of the month, initialed by the hard reading contributors thereof, follow in alphabetical order. Alien Corn — Sidney Howard — Scribners: The library armchair is a poor substitute for a seat in the fourth row as a vantage point for appreciation of drama. Visualization of a play from the printed book takes more imagination than most of us care to exert in our reading. Yet in perusing Sidney Howard's Alien Corn, the cold type takes on life through the mental picture of Katharine Cornell as one imagines how she would deliver the various speeches of Elsa Brandt, the Viennese girl whose musical aspirations are frus trated by the atmosphere of a mid-western college town. The play reads well. It is neatly constructed, contains interesting characteriza tions and a plot which, although rather trite and obviously tailored to Miss Cornell's measure, is sufficiently engrossing. Granted the spell of glamorous acting will probably dissipate this criticism, I could not help feeling that Mr. Howard has in Elsa Brandt written a character much more mature than the girl's stated twenty years. — W.

Bradley, Director State Office Bldg., St. Paul, Minn. (A division of the Minnesota De partment of Conservation) A ll About Chicago — ]ohn & Ruth L. Ashen- hurst — Houghton Mifflin: It is a little early to enthrone this or any of the books about Chicago as the outstanding volume of its kind. The presses are still humming with the preparation of works designed to serve as guide or souvenir the millions who will visit the Fair. The Ashenhurst work is thorough, competent and indubitably valuable. — W. R. W. Coolidge Wit and Wisdom — John Hiram McKee — Stokes : The succinct Coolidge retort, the dry comment and brittle expression, are brought to zestful focus in this collection of hearsay and anecdote. Not all of the book is funny. Occasional pages are almost profound. The whole gives a lasting and pleasant picture of the late president. — M. K. Great Circle — Conrad Arisen — Scribners: The heroically unheroic hero of this adroitly projected psychological study is drunk in all of its adult chapters and probably only a little sober at the end. In this condition he is perfect material for an also slightly alcoholic acquaintance who obligingly psycho-analyses his case (a swell cutback to the juvenile background is suspended between the statement and solution of the problem) a good deal more satisfyingly and credibly than your professional psychoanalyst is supposed to do. The book is at once an authentic case record and an engrossing, superbly written fiction. It is adult reading in all the varied mean ings of that shredded phrase and as sound an evening's reading as Fve come upon this year. — W. R. W. Old Chicago — Mary Hastings Bradley — Apple- ton: In four short, smartly written and skillfully backgrounded volumes — The Fort, The Duel, Debt of Honor and Metropolis — Mrs. Bradley gives permanent, pleasant record to four periods of Chicago's development. A great chorus of thanks should go up from all who live in these parts for her economy of documented detail and for the great good sense displayed in making her characters flesh and blood people, not even above sin, and engaging them in soundly plotted stories. She is the first historian, if she will not resent the classification, to breathe the breath of life into the local pioneers and the gentlemen who got streets named after them. Each of the volumes is about as long as a short story in the Saturday Eve ning Post. Every Chicagoan should own the set. — W. R. W. Intimate Memories — Mabel Dodge Luhan — Harcourt, Brace: The first volume of Madame Luhan's revelations depict a neurotic little girl's contacts with life as it may have been lived in Buffalo from 1879 to 1900. The little girl is quite a big girl at the end of three hundred pages but she still finds the female of the species more heady than the male and probably life is just going to be like that right on through the second and any subsequent volumes. Whether or no, the writing is effective, best when sketching back ground, and no doubt the picture of the period as glimpsed through wide young eyes is authentic enough. The memories, in other words, seem to be sound as a dollar, but the author lingers on intimacies a little longer than necessary. — J. B.

Miss Kathryn Golden, c/o Hyde Park Hotel. Chicago representative until May 15th penetrating fiction study of the proletariat. The five hundred and six pages of closely printed narrative throb with the life of his Russia. Factionists will call it over-sympathetic or not, partisan or patriotic, but force, color and substance it has in tremendous measure. That it will add to the Gorki public may be unimportant — probably he doesn't care. That it is superb reading matters pointedly. Nothing more substantial pertaining to the always mysterious Muscovite has come from the presses in many a day. — M. K. Rain in the Doorway — Thome Smith — Doubleday, Doran : Whenever we pick up a Thorne Smith book we invariably try to bear in mind our own personal, although never forced down anyone's throat, opinion that Thorne Smith is not the most amusing the none-too-many amusing latter-day American writers. And when we've dropped a Thorne Smith book, though we'll not say where, we are invariably still of that opinion. Yet even then we never try to corral converts. But Thorne Smith is pretty amusing part of the time. And he certainly is a great one for picking grand names for his people, for instance: the heroine, Miss Honor Knightly, "Satin" to her friends, Mr. Dinner, Major Britt-Britt. Of course, practically every character, especially the women, is running around all the time in a state of complete or semi-nudity. But it's not the healthy nudity of a Nudist Colony, more's the fun, it's the delightfully indecent nudity that is one of Thorne Smith's fortes. Oh, it's one to read. —E. E. A. The New Bridge — Meyer Levin — Covici- Friede: The lean years have been prodigal to Mr. Levin. The flip pen habits of his Chicago writing days have vanished and in their stead has come a mature, facile and faithful devotion to narrative. The story of The 7<[ew Bridge is important or not according to what is read into it, the author graciously declining to underscore his points and sticking fast to the relating of incidents that move rapidly, steadily to an undelayed and effective ending. It is sound writing and interesting reading, an honest book and a pleasant evening. — W. R. W. The New Commandment — Panteleimon Romanof — Scribners: The commandment in question has to do with loving thy neighbor and, the scene being soviet Russia and marriage just a bowl of garlic, a great deal of neighbor loving is done by all hands. Possibly there is value in the depictment of living conditions and all of that, but I could find in the book nothing weightier than a moderately sordid sex story. As such it rates well down the list of current works in kind. — W. R. W. Tiger — Sterling 7s[orth — Reilly &? Lee: This is the Daily K[ews serial story that all those off-season circus posters were about. It happens to be the second newspaper serial I have had the courage to read and I'm sorry that the other one was Chic\ie. Maybe some of the others were different. There must be more than one pattern. If there is not, let me recommend Mr. North's version. It has the dash and vigor of its earnest young author's first flush of enthusiasm for print. There is nothing quite like that. — W. R.
