TiHE very spirit of modern achieve ment is expressed in Science Hall, the magnificent building erected for Chicago's great Century of Progress Exposition. What more fitting than to picture before that splendid structure two completely modern automobiles which have won acceptance by artist and layman alike as style leaders for 1933! No single feature of design obtrudes itself in these splendid Oldsmobiles, yet literally every line and contour is new. The total effect is one of brilliant modern smartness — the authentic styling which adds so much to a car's value today and maintains that value longer. When we talk about styling, however, our engineers point out that Oldsmobile has built its proud reputation mainly on mechanical excellence. This always has been, and will continue to be, a fundamental Oldsmobile principle. Let us make it clear, therefore, that the 1933 Oldsmobile Six and Straight Eight are as advanced in performance as they are in appearance — the fastest, most powerful, most dependable cars in all Oldsmobile history. The Six is capable of 75 to 80 miles an hour, and the Eight will do 80 to 85 — actual stop-watch speed. Both the engines operate very quietly and without perceptible vibration. And let us say just this about price . . . you simply can't evaluate Oldsmo bile that way, because never before in this price field has any car offered a combination of style, performance and quality so closely comparable to that of high-priced cars. A sweeping statement and a large claim for Oldsmobile ! — but we make it advisedly and feel confident you will agree with us, once you have seen and driven the splendid new Oldsmobile Six or Straight Eight. Your nearest Oldsmobile dealer will gladly place one of these cars at your disposal, in order that you may personally test it and fully appreciate the unusual qualities we have built into it.

Open each weekday between the hours of 10 A. M. and 5 P. M., with additional evening hours to 9 P. M. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Juowfo lewis cm Call to wl trie IfJtnfd/ The Charming MODERNE An Adam Period Console For those who wish to fit a SCOTT ALL-WAVE Deluxe RADIO into a room of estab lished period, Scott offers con sole models following the finest traditions of the cabinet mak ers' art. This delightful piece, of Adam design, is typical of many available types of artistic verisimilitude and correct acoustic quality. 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 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. 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 part 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!

In the fleet fortnight elapsed since its opening the Fair has set a million tongues wagging inarticulately but tirelessly. The re splendent grandeur of the scene is not readily describable. Journey men reporters for the daily press have fallen back upon the Pumpkin Center device of writing "Notes of the Fair" and hoping for the best. Newspaper photographers flounder helplessly in the vastness of it all. The newsreels have been singularly uninterested and the broadcasters have impressed their listeners principally with the reit' erated impossibility of adequate verbal depiction. Out of all this the world can gather little save an impression of immensity and mag' nificence. No surer incentive to attendance could have been arranged for. No amount of arranging could have secured it. Mr. Mayer's pen and Mr. Miller's lens continue in this issue their inspired narration of affairs on the lakefront. They are pledged to carry on in like manner until such a time as there shall be no essential chapter of the story left untold. Probably this will be coincident with the dismantling of the last building and the departure of the last workman. We don't like to look that far ahead. We prefer to think that a good many of the buildings will be preserved indefinitely and transformed into a correct kind of housing for attractions and facilities that will make of Burnham Park the Atlantic City of tomor- row and the day after. The setting is perfect for it. Chicago can become the nation's summer capital. Maybe it is not too early for the South Park Board or the City Council or the Association of Commerce or somebody to begin giving a little thought to the matter. We Cover the Boulevard "1T7HILE the editorial staff of The Chicagoan has been carrying on by night and by day in behalf of its readers' interest in the Fair the advertising department has been no less unselfishly active. Manager Arthur E. Holt of the sales division is the properly proud parent of the idea which has brought about a physical restoration of the eye'filling spectacle that is Michigan Avenue with every shop window lighted and depression-born vacancies a dim memory. The smartest street in the world had sustained its share of scars. Gaping interiors moaned the gloomy story of vanished pin money. The Holt plan contemplated installation of suitable displays which would have the effect of banishing For Rent notices and raising drawn blinds. The idea caught on. Realtors fell into line. Mr. Al Chase gave of his space in the widely read Tribune to spread the gospel. His Honor the Mayor officially approved. We've never been able to understand advertising men very well but we have no difficulty in detecting the common sense fundamen tals involved in the present case and we can't help being a little proud that The Chicagoan was sponsor of the plan that worked out so handsomely. It almost makes us feel like a power in the community. We've never tried to be one. Maybe we should. The experience seems to have its points. More About That Bool 'T^he Chicagoan World's Fair Boo\ has been submitted to His ¦*¦ Majesty the World's Fair Visitor and he has bestowed upon it the extremely official okay that is betokened by expenditure of the half-dollar purchase price. We count this endorsement priceless. The ladies and gentlemen who attend the Fair are not without excep tion the ladies and gentlemen who compose The Chicagoan's chosen readership. They come from the ends of the earth and they speak many tongues. Most of them are very serious about this business of attending the Fair. To relatively few of them is the Exposition mere adventure. More seek instruction than thrill. The exhibits engage far more interest than the concessions. Fairs are not frivolous matters to their major customers. The Chigagoan World's Fair Boo\ was designed for these and the others. Its illustrated story of the Exposition is at once the best and most comprehensive record of the subject that has been brought out. It will endure when the over-night productions of penny wise publishing houses are forgotten with the names of the Hoover cab inet. Its text columns preserve for posterity the status of the civil ized interests as of this city and this time. Its advertising columns present a stirring record of the manner and means of graceful living in 1933. We have put under lock and key the first copy that came from the press. It will be placed in the corner stone of The Chicagoan Building when that swanky structure rears its sleek facade on the Boulevard. That will be another year. The thing to do this year is to buy a copy of The Chicagoan World's Fair Boo\ and safeguard it against fire and kindred hazards. You will want it to show the grandchildren. Cinema Censorship 'T'HE ladies and gentlemen who censor the motion pictures have **- emerged from a long and gratefully acknowledged winter's nap to cut their way back into a cinema world that was getting along very nicely without their ministrations. Possibly they don't like the warm weather. Maybe they are a little surer of their jobs than they've been in the leaner months. At any rate they are at it again and the favorite entertainment of a peaceful people is being clipped within an inch of its never too luxuriant life. The censor board has survived a good many changes of adminis tration. Because of circumstances attending its creation it is political dynamite. No serious person has argued for its retention since the Armistice but no person authorized by office to effect its elimination has seen fit to dare the wrath of the Yarrows who are always with us. The item representing its operation is not among the big figures on the municipal budget but its cost to the people in reduced enjoyment of a preferred amusement is plenty. We realize the futility of sug gesting that it be discontinued forthwith but there may be something in the moratorium idea. We recommend it for whatever it is worth.

"What's this chip of wood doing on a Packard car? Remember — back in your school days — what a chip on the shoulder meant? It was the challenge of a boy who was certain he was right. One alert Packard dealer borrowed this boyhood symbol. In his show room he placed a chip of wood on a Packard car to express what he sin cerely believes — that the new Pack ards have obsoleted all previous standards in the fine car field. While you may not see a chip of wood in your Packard showroom, the spirit of the challenge is there — the belief that this year's Packards are superior to other fine cars on any basis — performance, beauty, com fort, long life. 600,000 miles of testing during 1932 atthePackardProvingGrounds proved that these 1933 Packards are the toughest, longest-lived cars built in America today. A clutch, for in stance, was as good as new after 125,000 contacts in traffic. After 50,000 miles of driving, a transmis sion failed to show appreciable wear. A new lubricating system has dou bled the life of motor parts. Your investment in a Packard is protected in another way, too— in permanence of beauty. For these cars have the traditional Packard lines that never go out of style. Drive one as many years as you wish — you will always be proud to be seen in it. In these cars Packard has rec ognized that motorists differ in their requirements and preferences. And so the window ventilation, the pedal pressure of the power brakes and the resilience of the shock absorbers can all be adjusted to meet your desires. But name any quality you seek in a motor car— you will find it in the new Packards. Comfort? The cush ions were contoured by an orthopedic expert to let you ride with the great est relaxation and enjoyment. Steer ing? It is so easy it is almost auto matic. Quiet? Even up to a mile and a half a minute, you can scarcely hear the motor. But don't just read about these cars. See them at your Packard dealer's — ride in them. And bring your old car with you — if it is of average value, it will cover the down payment on a new Packard. The balance can be spread over many months. And the operating econo mies which your new Packard ef fects will make the monthly pay ments still easier. PACKARD ASK THE MAN WHO OWNS ONE The Packard Eight . from $2150 f.o.b.

PACKARD MOTOR CAR COMPANY OF CHICAGO 20 The Chicagoan Chicagoana Here and There About the Fair Grounds and the Town Conducted by Donald Plant INDUBITABLY you have read a bit about this situation in the dailies. They had stories about it all, but herewith is the inside. Even in such Elysian places as world's fairs there are certain prosaic matters that must be attended to. Notable among these is what we have come to call comfort stations. The Vic torians called them toilets, but this is a reticent age and the only variants we are crass enough to use are the English w.c. and the French cabinet d'aisance, both in the hope that no one can translate them. Since comfort stations are a delicate topic in 1933, no one inquired about them while Chicago's World's Fair was in the larval stages. The laity assumed that in this day and age, a century of progress and all that, the matter of comfort stations would be sim ply and satisfactorily handled. But when the Fair investigated the problem, it found that comfort stations cost money to install, and the Fair had no money to put into them, so to speak. The Brooks Contracting Corp. ap peared on the scene and offered the Fair $300,- 000 for the privilege, mind you, of installing 2500 pay-5c-as-you-enter comfort stations around the Fair grounds. The Fair people jumped at the offer after putting over an amendment that 500, or 20%, of the stations be available free of charge. Wherever the Brooks Corp. installed a covey of comfort sta tions on the grounds, 20% of them had to have latches on the inside only. £>Y the time the Fair was ready, the 2500 Brooks stations were open (or closed, as the case may be) for business. In addition, exhibitors erecting their own build ings had installed 500 w.c.'s for general and unfettered use. The name of Sears-Roebuck, famous for its catalogues, led all the rest with 35 retreats in its Fair building. But just be fore the opening day a complaint came to the exposition's department of operations from Mr. Henry C. Lytton. Mr. Lytton owns a clothing store in Chicago and is at the head of a group of gentlemen operating a working reproduc tion of Paris in the amusement section of the Fair. "Beer will be sold in the restaurants of Paris, Inc., and they will be among the busiest spots at the Fair," said Mr. Lytton wist fully. "We are allowed under the present arrangements to have a few free stations, but not nearly enough. Paris was never like this." Of course Mr. Lytton could have installed all the free comfort stations he wanted — at his own expense. If he chose to, he could have nothing but comfort stations. The Fair would not stand in his way. But Mr. Lytton's com plaint was that nearly all the free 20% of the Brooks Corp. stations were being herded to gether under the Soldier Field stadium, so that should there be a widespread necessity for re lief in the streets of Mr. Lytton's Paris, the customers would have a good two-mile gallop to the nearest facilities. The Fair appointed its director of operations, Col. Robert Isham Randolph, to make an extended investigation. Col. Randolph was formerly the director of Chicago's famous Secret Six and was obviously the man for the job. In the meantime, the Fair opened, and goes on, and everyone, from all reports drifting back this way, is satisfied. It is not the first time that a Chicago Fair has had comfort station trouble. On March 25, 1893, President H. N. Higginbotham of the World's Columbian Exposition made an announcement to the public "because of many misrepresentations and misstatements." "About 1,500 toilet rooms and closets (the announce ment read) will be located at convenient points in the buildings about the grounds, and they will be absolutely free to the public. This is as large a number in proportion to the esti mated attendance as has ever been provided in any Exposition. In addition to these there will also be an equal number of lavatories and toilet rooms of a costly and handsome charac ter, as exhibits, for the use of which a charge of 5 cents will be made." The exhibits idea is something to ponder. Paris was always like that. Fair Landscaping \ LTHOUGH it's still pretty dusty over there ¦^*" on a dry day, there is, nevertheless, an awfully lot of landscaping on the Fair Grounds. Mr. C. D. Wagstaff had charge of it all, and it was quite a job wherein many "HELLO, SARGE, I'M SORRY I WASN'T HERE WHEN YOU CALLED. I WAS TO A WEDDING!" difficulties were encountered and many bar riers (not artificial) hurdled. Even the task of keeping track of the number of trees, shrubs and vines used was something. There are, about the grounds, 94 American elms ranging from 40 to 45 feet in height; they're the tallest. The next group, 272 orna mental trees, are from 25 to 30 feet high. There are 264 native hawthorns about 15 feet high, although they should come under the shrub heading and would if we had one. And there are 628 tall, narrow red cedars of heights varying from 8 to 30 feet. There is quite a grove of trees in tubs, too, all 6 feet tall — exactly 106 of them. They don't count the shrubs and hedges in units — too many of them, but there are 45,000 feet of shrubs and 1,000 feet of flowering hedges; and 24,000 feet of flower beds. There are, too, 2,000 vines for ground covering and 50 rambler roses. Mr. Wagstaff had a problem transporting the trees and greenery from his northshore nur series to the Fair Grounds. Because of the size of the trees the moving had to be done at night when there wasn't much traffic. The whole moving job was accomplished in several nights. Only especially prepared earth was used in the planting. And if you want one of those end-to-end comparisons: if all the hedges planted by Mr. Wagstaff were placed end-to-end they would reach from Evanston to the Loop. It's a nice spot for the trees, too. Qourteous Q-<i^Ken E had hoped that the return of beer made the vanishing act necessary for pro hibition agents. We can't remember of hav ing heard of a local foray for some time, which, of course, doesn't mean that the speaks have all gone legit. The Feds are still active in the East though, so one of our Eastern operatives informs us. We pass it on as a notable exam ple of courtesy and goodwill that the local Boys might well follow. Recently the Nest, a Harlem hotspot on one of the side streets between 7th and Lennox Avenue, was raided by Government agents. Of course the existing camaraderie between New York speak owners and the Fed boys is, one ought to say, notorious (though we, per sonally, think it is a very lovely friendship). And what happened was that the owner of the Nest Club asked his agent friends to sug gest to the guests of the raided place that they walk across the street into a speak owned by a pal of his. The G-Men complied with his wishes. A long line of men in white ties and black ties and women in evening gowns were politely ushered across the street to the other speakeasy with all the graciousness of the times of the Bourbons. One of the agents was down stairs telling incoming guests about the raid, the other was upstairs requesting the guests to cross the street. The owner of the raided spot was in the June, 1933 21 "THERE HE GOES! SPOUTING SOME MORE OF HIS DARN FLATTERY!' doorway of his friend's speak greeting the guests with effusive smiles and telling them that they would have the same entertainers and so forth. And after the place across the street was completely filled, the entertainers from the raided club went over with their costumes and equipment. Our operative, a friend to both owners, went into the bar in the back of the club and found the owners and the agents talking about — yes, the depression — over Old Fashioneds. After half a dozen drinks one of the agents (both were Irishmen, good-natured and flushed of face) and requested an entertainer to play that piece about "a tumble-down shack near a rail road track" and rendered the number in a loud, clear tenor. He got a big ovation. Be fore he left he said, "Sorry we had to raid you boys, but orders is orders. That piece I sung reminded me of my mother." And how we'd like to be a witness to something like that around here. Incident '' \ TALL man of continental bearing was "**• browsing through the historical display of Steinway pianos and piano lore at Lyon 6-? Healy's when he was attracted by an immense ebony grand. It was Paderewski's concert Steinway which the master had played during his memorable tour of the United States in '93 and which had been used in his Morges home ever since. Quietly the man sat down at the keyboard and started to improvise. The lady who was inspecting the gorgeous rosewood grand (made in 1857) turned to listen. The improvisations drifted into some thing more serious. An interior decorator paused in his study of the detail of a period model. A lurking photographer started fuss ing with lenses and black cloths. Long fingers now swung into a lively folkdance. "Ah, it's still a lovely piano, isn't it?" said Rudolph Ganz as he rose and moved away to inspect a very modern upright whose keyboard emerges from a secret panel. A Lyon & Healy attendant relayed the story of the creation of this particular model. A New York yachtsman asked the Steinway Com pany to build him a piano the keyboard of which could absent itself and not remain on the "receiving line" when rough seas sent him shuffle-boarding across the cabin. And so the gallery wandered about in the wake of Mr. Ganz while he examined the tools and workbench of Henry Engelhard Steinway and the quaint square Steinway that was fash ioned just a hundred years before A Century of Progress took up squatter's rights along our shores. Charity ABOUT thirty-nine years ago Dr. Joseph B. ¦*¦** De Lee, the noted baby specialist, founded the Chicago Maternity Center in the heart of the Ghetto at Maxwell and Newberry Streets. Until about a year ago the institution had been affiliated with the Chicago Lying-in Hospital. Now its support is derived mainly from funds raised by its many auxiliaries. The South Shore Service League, one of these groups, was organized only last fall and already has been tremendously successful in its charitable work. A carnival and dance during the latter part of the winter and a recent rum mage sale were far in the black and the pro ceeds were turned over to the Center. Mrs. Milton H. Otte is president of the South Shore auxiliary; other sponsors of the Center are Miss Jane Addams, Dr. M. P. Urnes, General Abel Davis, Miss Edna Foley, Mrs. Emanuel Mandel, Dr. Otto L. Schmidt and Dr. Walter Dill Scott. Commies ' I *HIS concerns the Communists and their activities, but has nothing to do with the John Reed-get-Tom-Mooney-out'-of-jail Club. (What, we wonder, will the John Reeders do when and if they get Tom Mooney out of jail?) And we don't know just where the set ting was. It might have been Cable Court out south or maybe Haymarket Square. It might even have been Union Square in New York. Anyway, a wild eyed, bearded Communist, as left-wing as Gomez of the Yankees, was ex horting the crowd and telling them (by the way, this was during a chilly spell in the Spring) about the Capitalists — all on Lake Shore Drive (or maybe it was Park Avenue) , snug, smug and comfortable in their large apartments, eating STRRRAWBERRIES! By Gad, they could eat strrrawberries while poor men starved and couldn't even get bread. Finally strawberries got to be a passion with the speaker and, as he raved and ranted about them, he threw a last thrust at the little crowd. "Und cawms de ravoluzion," he bellowed. "Und den vee— VEE EAT STRRRAWBER RIES UND LIFF ON DE LAK SHORE DRIFE!" A little fellow in the crowd edged up to the soapbox and said, "But I don't like straw berries." The speaker glared at him for a moment and then, pointing his finger and shaking it at the little man, yelled, "CAWMS DE RRRAVOLUZION— YOU EAT STRRRAWBERRIES !" Western Unions Bit '"pHERE is no point in perspiring over a *- lead for the following message. It needs no lead; it speaks, and clearly, too, for itself.

There were layouts to be made. There was a dead line. The foundry was waiting for them. And he had evidently left his telephone re ceiver off its hook; anyway, we couldn't get him by 'phone. So we sent him a telegram. In a few minutes the Western Union people called us to report. The messenger boy couldn't locate our art director. The address we had given was that of a vacant house; it had been vacant for six months. And just as though we doubted their word, they called the boy to the 'phone. He said he'd tried the address and several addresses around there, including some across the street — eight alto gether, and hadn't been able to dig up our art director. Nor did any of the residents nearby know anything about him. We remembered that our confrere lived next a wellknown French restaurant and we mentioned that fact to the boy. . J "Oh," he replied. "You had the Wrong address. That's on Pearson Street. Hi try again." In a few minutes our art director 'phoned us. He'd received the telegram. And in a few minutes Western Union 'phoned us to tell us that our message had been delivered. All of which made us vow not to write but, instead, to wire. 'Personal Services AS we had hoped and expected, there have ^"^ been several personal service bureaus and guide services that have arisen — primarily for 22 The Chicagoan World's Fair visitors. One of the most unique of these is Clara Laughlin's Courier Corps. It is only reasonable and natural to expect that the Clara Laughlin Travel Service would come through with what is probably the most perfect organization for guiding Fair guests to the more interesting parts of Chicago. The author of the So You're Going books feels that "showing a city" is, after all, a fine art; that it requires much more than knowledge of what there is to see and where it is. The Laughlin people have specialized in that fine art and have been of great assistance to hundreds of thousands of travelers all over the world. Clara Laughlin is an enthusiast about Chi cago; it's her home town, and this is her op portunity to help many visitors to become Chicago-minded. She has organized a truly re markable service — So You're Going to See Chi cago — with a splendid Courier Corps of young men and women whom she has given an in tensive training. They are versed in every phase of Chicago life from Gangland to private art collections, from night clubs to institutions of higher education. All that visitor need do is to call the Courier Corps and request the services of a Laughlin representative, and that visitor will be given a grand time and a great impression of Chicago and (as a local two cent morning newspaper insists on calling it) Chicagoland. The Smithy Lives HAT with Technocracy still reappearing at distressing moments, and all this talk of thirty-hour weeks, sweat shops and mini mum wage scales, we were just about to pull Lenin to our bosom when, like a rising bubble in a glass of wine, up popped a sparkling new idea. Perhaps we had been letting dark head lines be-cloud our thinking. Perhaps Miss Perkins' panaceas will be denatured by amend ments. Perhaps the sweat shops employ only people with troubled kidneys. Perhaps, to lean on that staunch old phrase, things are not so bad after all. As if in confirmation came word from a Detroit informant tha" those people yearning for the good old days of handicraft, those sigh ing for the spreading chestnut tree and the ringing anvil, need no longer sigh in vain — that the blacksmith shop, with its implication of crinolines and hairy chests and leisurely afternoons, is with us still. It has moved from under the chestnut tree, true, but it is with us just the same. And it has migrateo — of all things! — right into the automobile factory, which is supposed to have put it out of business. It is living and thriving in the midst of the enemy. No, we wouldn't have believed it either if the informant hadn't sent visual photographic proof. But there it was: Snout-nosed anvil crudely strapped to a huge wooden block. Tin- sheathed forge sending coal smudge through a stovepipe chimney. Short-handled, grimy shovel hanging on the rirr of the forge waiting to feed soft coal to flames that were fanning iron rods to a vivid red complexion. The pic ture was complete even to the poker in the coal box and a square tin container full of water beneath the forge to quench the glowing metal. And by the anvil stood two hairy-armed prototypes of the ancient smithy. (Hairy chested too, we'd wager, although we couldn't see because they wore shirts and roughly knot ted ties.) The one held in his left hand a small bar glowing red at the end and in his other hand a light hammer to smooth out the rough edges. The second was banging down on the reddened bar. And they were making, not a shoe for Old Scimitar nor an axle for the spring wagon, but a new part for the automobile you will buy next year. They are two of many smithies, we learn, regularly employed in the experi mental laboratory of the Chevrolet Motor Company. They build by hand the new parts some inventive young engineer designs. All such parts are hand-fashioned, we are in formed, and are then tested in a car. If the parts work, they go into production, go into the coming new model. If they don't, they go into the hell-box of all unworthy things. Even a great division of General Motors can't proceed with its vaunted Policy of Prog ress without borrowing from the past, without using the lowly smithy as a springboard, with out making gigantic precision machinery await the turning of the humble forge. Ah there, Technocracy! Ah there, Miss Perkins! There can't be much wrong in a world where anvils still ring and hot embers skitter off the rafters. Polo Notes k | AHERE may not be so much outdoor polo ¦*¦ around town as in previous years, but what there is will be first class. Onwentsia will not have a team on the field this year, but Major McLaughlin tells us that he is doing his best to bring in some strong outside teams for tour nament play. Some of the old Onwentsia crowd have gone to Leona Farms, the Hertz estate, where Arthur Naylor expects to have some excellent games. The lower polo field at Leona Farms is beautiful, in our opinion comparing quite favorably with Meadowbrook. Paul Butler has started his season at Oakbrook, and has imported two fine men, Earl Shaw and Cecil Childers. Rumor has it that the Army will not be allowed to play any civilian teams, which, if true, will cause a great lack of interest at Fort Sheridan. It seems criminal not to let Major C. C. Smith and his team-mates meet the pick of the local outfits. But is probably O. K. by now. The South Side will have its share of polo this summer. Joe Bell and a group of fellows who played in the Indoor Matches last win ter are going to play Sunday games at Olym pia Fields. North Shore has made no plans for the summer, having turned their field over to the 122nd and 124th Field Artillery units. Of course it's too early in the season to discuss championships, but everyone hopes that we can have some sort of a tournament which will show whether or not our outdoor teams are as good or better than our indoor teams. Turf Notes ^TOBODY in the turf world expected that the Arlington Park people would do much about their several stake races this sea son; and they haven't. The total distribution of money from the seven Arlington stakes should amount to approximately $130,000, and their overnight purses will come mighty close to approaching the levels of previous years at that course. It looks as if Arlington should again have the highest total and greatest aver age daily outlay in the world. The dates for the stakes are: Monday, June 26 — Arlington Inaugural Handicap, $2,500 added, for 3-year-olds and upward at seven furlongs. Saturday, July 1— Hyde Park Stakes, $7,500 added, for 2 -year-olds at five and one-half furlongs.

So we have the acknowledged Queen of the Stage forsaking an ocean voyage or the relaxation of her country home to bring Alien Corn into our midst, when the thermometer is at any time likely to go berserk and the hot winds from the corn fields turn the pavements into furnaces. If there is an augury in the 10,000 people Miss Cornell turned away from her benefit performance in the Barretts of Wimpole Street, she is likely to pack the Harris, be the wind cool from the lake or hot from the desert. Artist Karson's impressionable brush ranges the players, clockwise from the star, Siegfried Rumann, Charles D. Brown, James Re nnie and Luther Adler. Hail, All Hail Cornell And a Fanfare of Farewells for Four Favorites By William C. Boyden WHAT is so rare as a play in June? Quite a number of things in this Cen tury of Progress Year. Distinguished theatrical passers-by have been many. Hamp den, Barrymore, Cohan and Ulric have come and gone. Cornell has come Usually this time of year finds actors meditating on shaded country homes, lounging pajamas and ham mocks rather than on grease-paint, stuffy dress ing rooms and hot stages. But the gala mood of the World's Fair is presumed to bring in its wake a generous outpouring of mazuma, and the theatre must claim its share. That the early birds snapped up few worms must have been a disappointment. Let us hope that Miss Cornell and the numerous other plays billed for summer showing here will draw at least a reasonable overflow from Rufus Dawes' big production on the Lake Front. Certainly the opening of Alien Corn at the Harris was auspicious. Duesenbergs drove up to the door; stiff shirts wilted in the heat; the entr'acte sidewalks winced under the high heels of quality. For three highly emotional acts, including one speech as long as four Shake spearian soliloquies, Katharine Cornell suffered and, under the enchantment of her acting, the audience writhed in vicarious soul-torments. Rather than attempt to think up new adjectives to describe the quick sensitiveness and the deep 'running emotion of this superb actress, let it suffice to say that in the role of Elsa Brandt she has the stuff out of which to kindle dramatic fire, at once intense and luminous. But for once Miss Cornell meets her equal. Siegfried Rumann, as Elsa's father, does as fine a piece of acting as I have ever witnessed. And there are three others of outstanding merit; Charles D. Brown as a newspaper man who has seen better days and many drinks; Luther Adler as a neurotic young instructor; and Charles Waldron in one of his disagree able roles as a hypocritical pundit. These com petent people make Sidney Howard's play about a Viennese girl, whose musical aspira tions are stifled in the atmosphere of a mid- western college town, seem very important. But it is difficult to believe that Alien Corn would have made Burns Mantle's Ten Best Plays had it been presented with a cast of ordinary ability. The other productions holding forth in playhouses which survive to welcome the Fair crowd only qualify as legiti mate theatre by the most gracious critical cour tesy. Put a picture into K[uts to You, with which the Oriental is supposed to have gone legit, and you have a glorified Balaban and Katz program. Shut your eyes, and you have a satisfying evening beside your radio. Hope for the stuff that revues are made of, and you suffer disappointment. There are four acts, plus some immaterial garnishments. White- man's Orchestra needs no encomiums; Jack Pearl is to many the acme of comicality; Burns and Allen are a crisp patter-and-gag team; the Boswell Sisters are one more trio of harmony twitterers. The interesting point about the whole business is the apparent draw of pop ular wireless entertainers. Maestri in the revue field might take notice. The cinema editor might more appropriately than the drama editor comment on Hurok's Piccoli, until recently a pay attraction at the Erlanger. Marionettes are really closer to the mechanics of the screen than to the flesh and blood of the stage. But I am glad I had this idea after seeing the performance rather than Mr. Weaver's having it before I saw it. I might have missed a grand show. These al most life sized dolls, synchronized with orches tra and off-stage voices, do everything that humans could do except forget their lines. They dance the whole range from jazz to the ballet, sing grand opera, play the piano and fight bulls lively enough to enthrall Ernest Hemingway. Although my experience with this form of entertainment is practically nil, I venture the guess that the Piccoli is the world's greatest puppet show. After years of fighting off importunities to view amateur efforts the critics were flagrantly lured into the Studebaker to pass on North western University's musical comedy, Hats Off, billed as a professional production. Doubtless next month the Drama Players of the Engle- wood Baptist Church will take a theatre, ad vertise and get Ashton Stevens into his front row seat. At that, Hats Off is the best college show I have ever witnessed. Now for the Ave-Atque- Vales. Ethel Barrymore did a modest business at the Harris for a couple of weeks in May in a fragile triviality entitled An Amazing Career. It is difficult to resist the suggestion that Miss Barrymore has been ill-advised lat terly in her choice of plays. She would do better to appear less frequently unless she can find more adequate outlets for her undoubted abilities. Actresses with enough hold on the public imagination can weather several seasons of shoddy dramatic material. Consider Kath arine Cornell in The Letter, Dishonored Lady and The Age of Innocence. Miss Barrymore is unfortunately no longer in this comfortable position. Her current effort was too slender a comedy to excite more than passing interest. It was another of those plays about tempera mental opera singers, this one being partic ularly noteworthy for her fecundity. The star was amusing at times; the supporting cast con tained four very competent men; one scene of a burlesque rehearsal was extremely good; yet the whole thing never quite came off. Although not a member of the Irish Fel lowship, which makes his openings resemble a benign political caucus, I am enthusiastic about George M. Cohan. Mv liking is in stinctive rather than critical. Else I probably could not have sat with so much enjoyment for the two unbroken hours of Pigeons and People (Grand). My sitting muscles are used to the seventh-inning respite. Nor would it have been much out of keeping with the charming lunacy of the play for Cohan to have stepped to the footlights at ten-thirty and decreed the big stretch. For he did everything else, winked, wept, laughed, wiggled his forefinger, danced, sang, put his coat on, took it off, indulged in amazing dialectic, cocked his head, transfixed each character in turn with a piercing glance. It seemed he started out to prove that pigeons are much nicer than people, but, being such a nice fellow himself, he relented every time a character appeared on the verge of being shown up as a rascal. So the ultimate proof went no further than the patent exposition of the fact that George M. Cohan is a most engaging personality. Lenore ulric followed Cohan at the Grand. She is again a gal with morals of dross and a heart of gold. The play wright, ironic fellow, calls her Angel. The play, bearing the same name, is the one hun dred eighty-sixth rewriting of Rain with varia tions. An aeroplane crash dumps assorted characters into a deserted cabin. Sadie Thompson does not kill herself but marries her sergeant of marines, this time dressed up in the uniform of an air pilot. The plot concerns some matters extraneous to the soul struggle of the genial harlot. Otherwise it is about the same. The off-stage rain is present; the horri fied missionary; and the ancient struggle be tween hypocritical and honest sinning. An excellent cast gave a suggestion of reality to a banal manuscript. Of course no one does these tough dames as well as La Ulric. She made some very feeble wisecracks stand up by her forthright and humorous delivery. Harry Daniell did an excellent job as a Hamletesque sort of fellow, while Paul Kelly was a most engaging hard boiled egg. In these days good men are generally re garded as frustrates; bad men as victims of meglomania. Caponsacchi, in which Walter Hampden appeared briefly at the Grand, dealt with other days when a good man was so good that he would have given Saint Anthony an inferiority feeling; a bad man so bad that he would murder his grandmother for a red apple. I can think of no other actor who could successfully merchandise this dated opera libretto. There is some quality in Mr. Hamp den which enables him to portray godly char acters without making the worldly writhe. Mr. Hampden also ventured Hamlet. His interpretation lent no comfort to the school of criticism which sees insanity in Hamlet. Rather like a young college professor, richly cultured, profoundly intelligent, unadapted to the harsh exigencies of his time, this high-minded Prince never abandoned the tenets of good form. You sensed his aberrational words were but a cloak for his purposes. You never doubted his love for Ophelia. You felt always the penetrating quality of the man's humor. It was a worthy piece of acting. June, 1933 27 Some Adjustments in Scenario A Preview of the Canzoneri-Ross Super Special By Larry Fitzgerald WHEN the glare of the ring lights dou bles and the other lights fade dim, and little Tony Canzoneri comes shuffling out of his corner for the opening round, a deep hush will fall upon the terraced thousands who have come to see him do battle with Barney Ross in defense of his lightweight champion ship of the world. These seconds of solemn silence before the tension is broken by the throwing of the first punches are an uncon scious tribute which fight crowds pay to a champion — a catching of the emotional breath, as it were, in preparation for the moments of high drama which they hope are to come. They fail to fall silent for some of the cham pions, but not for Tony Canzoneri. For this hard-faced little Italian is one of the few fight ers of the day who, under the ring lights, seems to have any association with the glam orous past of a prize-ring that goes all the way back to 17th century England. When he climbs through the ropes to place his title at stake the long line of lightweight champions seems to march in support behind him — Leonard and Welsh and the legendary Gans, Wolgast and Erne and Lavigne, and perhaps even little Ned Hunt, who was first of the bare-knuckle lightweight champions as long ago as 1747. Now if this were an ordinary fight crowd that is to fill the Chicago Stadium on the evening of June 23, no explanation of the spec tacle would be necessary. Most of the reg ulars believe that Tony Canzoneri, pound for pound, is the greatest fighting man in the ring today. They will be on hand only to see whether the local Jewish youngster, Barney Ross, punches sharply enough and knows enough defense to stand off the barrages of powerful rights and hooking lefts which con stitute the champion's offensive, and to be in at the kill in case Ross should come through to the championship. But the Canzoneri-Ross fight throng is to be far from an ordinary fight crowd. Just as the fight itself is pugilism's contribution to the importance of A Century of Progress, so will its crowd be a World's Fair crowd, made up in large part of spectators whose previous ex perience of championship fights has been gath ered from reading the fiction and watching the flood of motion pictures which the prize- ring has inspired. It would not surprise any one in the prize-fight business should it turn out to be a very hard crowd to please. N aturally there are important differences between Tony Can- zoneri's fighting Barney Ross for the light weight championship of the world in the Stadium ring, and some rugged thespian's punching a cautious sparring partner about a Hollywood sound stage in simulation of a championship fight. But it is the habit of the motion picture addict to look upon all things in the way the cinema has trained him, and there is a good chance that many of them will sit puzzled through the actual battle. There will be a feeling that either the motion pic ture directors have betrayed their trust, or that Canzoneri and Ross have no idea of the proper method of staging a championship fight. There would be bitterness either way if no explana tion was made. It is better that the whole thing be thrashed out in advance. The scenario for a title fight between Can zoneri and Ross would not be a complex one. One of them would be our hero, the other the villain. Each would be supplied with a few retainers to bring out the best and the worst in him. And somewhere along the line there would have to be a blonde, whose vacil lating affections would furnish a reason for the two to come together in the ring with hate in their hearts. The final disposition of the blonde would, naturally, depend upon the out come of the battle, and the outcome of the battle would be a cinch as soon as the part which each fighter was to play had been de termined. The hero would win, getting up off the floor a dozen times to score a knockout in the final round after a toothy grin from the blonde in her ringside seat had assured him that it was he to Whom she preferred to give her heart and hand. The selecting of the cast for the fight hap pens to be a relatively simple matter, and it is Tony Canzoneri's misfortune that he could not take the part of our hero. The best fighters of three divisions have been levelling at Tony's chin for so many years that his profile will no longer do for cinema purposes. So he will have to be the villain, and manager Sammy Goldman will perforce take rank as his chief henchman. In private life Tony is a rather nice fellow, good to his folks and addicted to the smoking of good cigars; Sammy Goldman is a middle-aged clothing merchant who sel dom descends to anything more dastardly than playing pinochle for keeps. But once the movie fight fans have assigned them their places there is no helping them. They will be ex pected to take every advantage of our hero, and may even stoop to such mischief as plac ing a horseshoe in each of Tony's five-ounce fighting gloves to make certain of encompass ing the clean-limbed challenger's defeat. With Canzoneri's mashed nose automatic ally placing him in the role of villain, Barney Ross becomes our hero. A fine sportsman who could win the title easily if things were done fairly, he will be expected by the cinema fight enthusiasts to have a hard time of it before coming through, in the last reel, to glorious victory. Efforts will be made to poison his water bottle, he will be punished severely by the unscrupulous villain. But in reality he will have all the best of it, because as the hero the rules of the motion picture make him certain to win out in the final round. And Barney makes a fairly acceptable hero, for he has a soulful cast of countenance, and his ears are still legitimate ears and not lumps of cauli flower. Barney is also particu larly fortunate in his choice of henchmen, for he has as his co-managers Sad Sam Pian and Art Winch — two upstanding young sportsmen of the exact type called for by the plot. Their gift for repartee, indeed, makes it possible for them to furnish the comic relief in addition to handling their duties as the hero's trainer and manager. The one remaining detail required to satisfy the demands of the cinema fight fans — the blonde who inspires our hero to become the lightweight champion — will have to wait, but no difficulty should develop on this score. Once a hero and a villain have been secured, the finding of blondes becomes almost auto matic. Of course the blonde motif ought to have canary yellow hair, Harlow lips and Hepburn eyes — indeed, a fillip to any gent of the ring. No blonde is necessary, anyway, for the staging of the actual fight. Canzoneri and Ross are coming together for the purpose of cutting up a gate that may run to $100,000, and to determine which of them is to control for the next year or so the valuable asset or franchise known as the lightweight champion ship. And even though upon the screen little Tony Canzoneri would have no chance what' ever of turning back Ross, he has a very good chance in the ring. Since the day of his first professional fight almost ten years ago, Tony has been a fighter obviously destined for the top, and he has improved rather than gone back with the passing of the years. At an age when most prize-fighters are still lounging about the corner poolroom shooting lineup pool at 2]/2 cents a cue, Canzoneri had already won and lost the featherweight championship of the world. Four years ago he tried to win the light weight title from elusive Sammy Mandell in the ring at the Stadium, but could not get past Mandell's great straight left hand. The next year, after Mandell had been knocked out by Al Singer at New York, Canzoneri came into the lightweight crown by administering a one- round knockout to Singer. Always this little man has been known as a money fighter, one of the type who is at his best only when he is up against the most difficult sort of opposition. Always he gives his best, and a best that means a knockout punch in either hand and a determination not to take a backward step no matter how bitter the punishment he is called upon to absorb is good enough to keep him the favorite to de fend his title successfully against even as dan gerous a contender as Barney Ross. In the final analysis, the difference between the ring battles of the screen and actual cham- pionship fights gets down to one thing: On the screen they do not hit our hero in the belly; in the ring they do. It makes a difference. 28 The Chicagoan BREEZES SWEEP THROUGH THE LOFTY ROOMS AND TERRACES OF THE PINE BEACH INN AT BRAINERD, MINNESOTA. 'W*-- A LAKE FOR EVERYONE Minnesota V Ten Thousand By Lillian Larson A NY time is a good time to vacation among Minnesota's ten thou- t-\ sand lakes. -*- •*» Emerald lakes, over ten thousand of them, from tiny dots to the vast waters of Lake Superior, turbulent streams frothing and tumbling in their haste, sandy bathing beaches and rocky commanding cliffs, and mountains unknown to even most of the natives, waterfalls and cataracts, lovely state and national forests and parks, sporty golf courses galore, majestic forests of pine and hardwoods fringing the lakes and sentineling the highways, metropolitan centers and vast silent wildernesses, hundreds of thousands of wild birds and game and happy songsters, and millions of fish — that is Minnesota. Within the confines of the North Star State are the headwaters of the three great water systems ending in Hudson Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Perhaps Minnesota's greatest han dicap has been the very size of its recreational areas and their diversity. Rather than a small isolated scenic region, it is a succession of recrea tional and scenic delights. The tourist is limited in his choice only by the distance he wishes to travel and the price he wishes to pay. If perchance he seeks the pines he will select any of the regions north of Brainerd except the district directly south of Detroit Lakes which is in the hardwood belt which once covered most of the southern part of the state. If he wants to get away from crowds and paddle for days witihout seeing another human being, he'll head toward the jumping off place of civilization, the Superior National Forest or the Lake of the Woods. If she, seeks every luxury with an idyllic woodland setting, a score of fashionable resort hotels in every part of the state will satisfy her thoroughly. Fishermen who long for the thrill of landing a muskallunge will journey toward the Mantrap Chain of lakes near Park Rapids, although there are said to be muskies and some socking big ones in Woman Lake, Leech Lake, Lake Winnibogish and the lakes bordering Canada, including that lake of lakes, the Lake of the Woods. Brook trout are said to be lurking in almost every spring fed stream in the state except those of southwestern Minnesota, but there are a few favorite spots of course. In southern Minnesota these are Crystal Springs and the lower part of the Cannon River. In central Min nesota there are a number of streams in the vicinity of Sauk Rapids and Long Prairie, several east of Sandstone and Hinckley near High way No. 1 and the St. Louis River in the Jay Cooke State Park just south of Duluth.

WANDERLUST BAIT Travel Goulash By Lucia Lewis A HOT, muggy day in June is no time for coherrent writing, and it's been months since I saw the bottom of the file • basket on the travel desk anyway, — so if Yellowstone lies down with Moscow, and little children's camps mingle with planter's punch on this page — well, it's just that kind of a day. There seem to be a lot of scrambled notes on "places close by" in the basket. We'll polish these off according to the dot, dot, dot, system, the decade's gift to so-called writers. What to do with the younger fry .... Camp Robinhood, opened by the well-known Sherwood Forest Hotel, at Green Lake, Wiscon sin ... . handles children from six to fifteen in their appropriate age groups .... good counsellors, nurse, physician, dietician, etc. .... all sorts of games and sports .... and the beauty of it is that parents who can't bear to leave their darlings may stay at Sher wood Forest Hotel and be free, yet within call. Sherwood Forest comfortable and very up-to-date .... grand food .... the swell water sports of Green Lake and splendid fishing .... interesting side trips .... and golf at Tuscumbia Country Club open to Sher wood Forest guests. IF you can't get away from the city this sum mer or are taking an extended trip, there's an ideal camp especially for the really little children whom you'd hate to send off with their tougher older sisters and brothers. Orchard Hill Camp at St. Charles is nice and close so that if you are in town you can dash out now and then, though the little monkey will probably forget all about you a week after he or she gets out there. The camp is very carefully supervised so that even three-year-olds are perfectly safe though they think they are having a terribly wild life dressing in Indian clothes and whooping about learning about the birds and the flowers. The ones who are old enough are taken regularly to the Dunham Woods Riding Club and taught how to ride well enough to prance forth proudly at the horse show. Dunham Woods, incidentally, is one of the most delightful spots close to Chicago. This famous old estate retains all its old dignity and graciousness and is about the most perfect nucleus for the de velopment of a fine estate community that could be found. The bridle paths and riding club are noted far and wide, and more and more people are running out for week-ends, liking it so well that they stay on longer.

Everyone is talking about the new "inch- worm" trains which Union Pacific has ordered, but more interesting to me for the immediate summer is the fact that their good western trains have air-conditioned dining cars for summer service. Instead of feeling that you never want to see food again, as you roll across the glaring desert, you really enjoy the session in the diner. With the air conditioning the windows may all be sealed tight, so that the car is very quiet and has a leisurely air about it. The air is washed and cooled, and all in all the western summer trip steps up about 50 per cent in happiness. To one who dotes on every word that clicks from Ring Lardner's typewriter, the first copy of the Northwestern Railroad's new paper "The Escorted Traveler" comes as a grand surprise. They are reprint ing Lardner's diary of the gal who took Tour Y- 10, and you'll love it, my children — run right to your desk and ask us or the railroad to send you a copy. Incidentally the sheet has some splendid western travel information. \\ ell we said Yellowstone would lie down with Moscow, so this dip into the basket brings up a nize little item about Moscow which may be new to you. They say Muscovites ride about their city in boats more than the inhabitants of any other large city in the world, excepting only the Venetians. Be that as it may, a summer visit to Moscow must include a trip on the Moscow River which curves back and forth through the center of the city in the shape of a letter S, finally passing under (Continued on page 78) ¦ ~ . mm ^^^pT^~|f* j|*^j am ¦ ^ , BRIDLE PATHS, GOLF, SPORTS, LUXURIOUS HOTEL OR PRIVATE HOME — ALL YOURS AT LAWSONIA THE OLD FORT AND THE GRAND HOTEL LOOM HIGH OVER THE PICTURESQUE HARBOR OF MACKINAC.

Most of the comments appeared in newspapers of that year.) Pillar to Post (Gone but not forgotten) : This Pillar of Thought is disposed to argue with those who say Chicago is doomed, that "a judgment of God hangs over it" because of its sins. Who are our sinners? The Hankins boys, owners of faro hells? "Appetite Bill" Appleton and his Tivoli? The promoters of cock-fights (a truly refined sport, say we)? The people who break the Sabbath by going on picnics? Our murderers, whose lack of guilt is proved every week or so by some intelligent jury? No! The real crime in this community is the shortage of heat in cable cars. Though the street-cleaning department is pretty wicked. The thugs who ma\e our avenues Run ruby red with blood Are purer than a city hall That leaves our streets in mud. And it might be asked, why is not the new city hall pushed to completion? Prof. Gimmick says that Illinois Central stock at 120 is good-bye. The Pillar refuses to recognize that a business depression exists. Depressions! The conductor of the pillar was hereabouts in 1873, and even then he refused to be scared. Mark his prediction. There will be an upturn in 1884! Boost Chicago! Thoughts While Strolling: The river looks more inky-black every day. Must be they are throwing unused copies of The Herald into it. . . . E. J. Lehmann looks jaun-tee since he won that $25,000 libel suit against the Herald, which had done nothing worse than call him a bunco-steerer. . . . To the brave belongs The Fair. Emory Storrs on Mich avenue. . . . Looks as though he needed an invigorator. . . . Pat Sheedy has a new tile; head got too big for the old one. . . . Saw Mrs. Levi Leiter going to the Theodore Thomas concert in white gown with blue ribbons, and a chip bonnet. Thomas sent word this time that he had to have a room in a private house, with a bathroom. What's wrong with the Grand Pacific? . . . F. H. Winston on way to church; finest looking man in St. James, and does he know it! William Borden just sold his gold mine for a cool million, we understand. The Big Four Blairs are still lording it at the Calumet Club; so is John Mason Loomis, of whom a friend of ours remarked, "He's conceited, but it's excusable." Another friend of ours says of Gen. Cobb's new mansion, "It has so many angles, rectangles, octangles, etc., it has a philo-fell-into-the-hogpeno- pen-endron appearance." Very pat, whatever it means. Stage Whispers: Lily Lantry is here! The town shows no great disturbance. The sun is still in the heavens. No suspension of skin-games of faro. . . . We saw her the other night. Venus? Juno, more likely. Despite those lines at the corners of her mouth, Oscar Wilde was right. The real question everyone wants answered: Is Freddie Gebhardt here, too? We tell you straight, he is. The infatuated youth who has pursued Lily all over the country is right there at the Grand Pacific, where she is. And it's no use to send up your card. We like the story of the Goose Island boy who went to the hotel and said he wanted to see Mrs. Langtry. klYou can't," sniffed the clerk. "Well, then — I hear she's a good skater. Just tell her the best skatin' on Goose Island is right in front of our house. Tell her to come on over." From present indications, Mrs. Langtry is likely to take away nearly $30,000 of Chicago shekels for her engagement. Should she be mad? In the As You Li\e It wrestling scene, in the Modjeska engage ment, the wrestler was a bruiser named William Muldoon, pretty high up in that profession, too. Maurice Barrymore had a dickens of a time putting him down. They say Parson Davies would like to sign up both of them for a bout on the lake front. The so-called critic who advised Minnie Maddern to "stick to the soubrette business" may be sorry some day. We predict big things for Little Minnie. We quote the comment of our esteemed colleague, Eugene Field, on a popular actress (not that we approve of it) : "The obese but well dressed Miss Fanny Davenport is not making meteoric progress with her new play, Fedora. Her talent, if she has any beyond that of the average fashion-plate, is of the Foggs' Ferry order; and art will never cease lamenting that a good steam whistle was spoiled when Fanny took to the stage." Haverly's Theater is now completely electric-lighted. Flash! Flash! Whadjuknow about this tattooing craze? Well known lady has a full-rigged battleship; another a picture of the Exposition building. I seen 'em. Our Carter says politicians could be tattooed to show their party principles. What principles? . . . We happen to know that a certain place celebrated as a gown joint, and with a brass plate that says so, has a sideboard in the back where ladies of the elite tipple on the sly. "It is astonishing," says a contemporary, "the number of women who take their regular nips; women of refinement and fashionable birth." (We like that term "fashionable birth".) Could tell you where this place is, but — not on your tintype! . . . Inside stuff! . . . Jere Dunn will be acquitted of having merely killed Jim Elliott. We were right there in the Tivoli bar when the boys started rolling on the floor and shooting. Self -defense? Sure! We understand Jere already has hired a box at McVickers, where he will receive the plaudits after the verdict. . . . Get wise to this: We went to hear something called Lohengrin at the Expo concert. Would rather hev heard Rev. John Barrows, couple times over. As for min isters, that was a peach of a sermon Rev. Wm. Lawrence got off the other Sunday. Sez he: "I did not go hear Christine Nilsson sing. I heard she was learning to play draw poker. I feared I might hear through the solfeggios of her exquisite notes the rattle of the dice in the unholy game of poker." .... Dice, doctor? The Sportlight. What's wrong with the White Stockings? At this rate they won't land better than second place. The same boys who won the pennant the last three years! Still, that 31 to 7 victory over Buffalo was cheering. . . . Who remembers when the Chicagos beat Memphis 157 to 1? That was only as long ago as 1870. Pitching has improved since then. The new curve ball has made a lot of difference, old Anse says. . . . This bicycling craze! A woman wins the six-day race! Pretty soon we'll see women in Congress — or do you believe it? News of the fighters: John L. had no trouble putting away Charlie Mitchell. Three rounds were enough. They say John will clean up as much as $10,000. Paddy Ryan still hiding out. Seems that an Indian medicine man told Paddy you couldn't beat Sullivan without killing him, and Paddy has no thought of getting hung — but you never can tell. . . . The padded gloves are taking all the joy out of the sport. In the cocking-mains : Sixteen birds (Continued on page 64) June, 1933 33 • • TERMINAL" TOWER? CLEVELAND; o~.

Adams FLATTENED purses, frozen assets, closed banks . . . bank rupt sales and real bankrupt sales . . . low prices, lower prices, cheap merchandise and cheaper merchandise ... be ing just a few details in the cross-section of the late era of regres sion, the era which offered horror pictures and jig-saw puzzles to soothe the public nerve. It would seem an amazing stupidity to suggest, in the face of such conditions, the launching or expanding of a "quality" busi ness. A few voices cried out for higher standards, not lower, but the voice of business answered, simply and conclusively, "It can't be done." It has been done, and more than once. Every now and then we hear of some bold person who, instead of joining in the price-cut ting war, goes peacefully along producing — and selling — goods of the finest quality. A notable example of this counter-attack has been presented in Chicago. While the merchandise in this instance is food, it none the less demonstrates the fallacy of a popular com mercial attitude. Fred Harvey, in establishing a Michigan Avenue restaurant, was doing something more than expanding. For the move represents a break with a life-long precedent, a venture out side the realm of the railway station. Here — while many downtown restaurants were blanketing their windows with bigger and better bargains to attract the canny citi zen, while standards were being lowered in every line to meet or to beat competition — Chicago has seen an institution not only refusing to lower its standards, but venturing into new territory to offer quality goods. A visit to the new Fred Harvey Restaurant furnishes convinc ing evidence that the venture was not born to folly. With the pudding not only seen but eaten, thereby establishing the proof, many will dare to hope that the same recipe will be more widely used in other lines of business. For all are pretty tired of the al leged bargains that have tempted coins away from the straight and narrow. Those who have traveled "the Harvey Way" are not amazed at the appearance of Fred Harvey in new territory. To them the surprise was not that a service associated with the railway stations of the Southwest should meet Michigan Avenue standards, but that Michigan Avenue standards were to be found in the heart of American desert. In fact, Fred Harvey has sur prised the public from the beginning. The idea of offering the highest standards of food and cooking in railway stations was so opposed to custom that it was years before the railway executives would agree to try it out. The first Fred Harvey Restaurant, es tablished in 1876 at Topeka, was a surprise success. A few months later, in the frontier town of Florence, Kansas, Fred Harvey im ported a chef at $5,000 a year, served quail and prairie chicken dinners, and charged the substantial price of fifty cents — all of which amazed the citizens, yet stilled their derision with success. Then, year by year, as the Santa Fe slowly stretched through the desert and toward the Pacific, sometimes advancing only a few miles in a year, Fred Harvey continued to surprise. He not only estab lished restaurants in these new desert towns, but constructed hotels of a style and beauty that challenged the architects of the finest Eastern resorts. Among these Harvey Houses are La Fonda at Santa Fe, the Alvarado at Albuquerque, La Posada at Winslow, and El Tovar at the Grand Canyon. At El Tovar the visitor never suspects that there is no natural water supply, the muddy torrent of the Colorado excepted. A plentiful supply of water, for drink ing, bathing, lawn sprinkling, and other purposes was for many years imported in tank cars. Last year, at an expense of a quarter of a million dollars, a power plant was completed to pump water from springs at the base of the Grand Canyon to the precipice 6,000 feet above. The development of the Harvey system is an important chapter in the history of the Southwest. It is a story of men (and of women!), of pioneering, of romance. Fred Harvey literally supplied culture and character, as well as food, to the youthful communes of the Southwest. Some of America's most noted examples of Spanish and Indian art were placed in the Harvey Houses. A Harvey employe soon learns that Service is more than a word. He may, for instance, suggest a way to better profits. He will be asked but one question: "Is it an opportunity to give a still better service or a finer value to the guest for his money?" "A still better service or a finer value." You have heard such phrases before. What have these words really meant in practice? Here are a few concrete examples: Two high salaried experts devote all of their time to selecting meats for the Harvey table. And they know their business. They can, in truth, look at a live steer, tell its breed, its age, how it has been fed, and, best of all, how it will eat. Other Harvey experts go into orange groves and apple orchards, personally selecting a considerable part of the fruit purchased for the System. Certain localities are noted for the superior quality and flavor of certain fruits or vegetables. In those localities Fred Har vey goes to market. Choice poultry is purchased directly from the farms and brought to the Harvey Poultry Farm, where milk feeding adds to its plumpness and flavor. You might say that baking is a specialty with Fred Harvey, ex cept for the fact that they seem to specialize in everything they do. Besides nine different kinds of bread, a special loaf is baked for toasting. No substitutes are used in their pastries, which are baked in brick ovens. If the recipe calls for large portions of butter, eggs and milk, it is a strict Harvey rule to use them in full measure. The fame of Fred Harvey coffee is not due to its quality and careful preparation alone. For different recipes have been evolved for each kind of water found in the various Harvey localities. A harvey chef is an artist in his realm. Trained in Europe or schooled for years in the Harvey organization, he must demonstrate unusual skill and talent before he can hope to be placed. But he is anxious to succeed. He is honestly proud of his association with Fred Harvey's name. He knows the high standard he is expected to attain. He knows further — for he is told it again and again — that he is one of Fred Harvey's partners, a very im portant part of the organization. He knows, too, that there are higher rewards in store for him if he fully meets the rigid demands of the Harvey cuisine. And he is a high-salaried man to begin with. Not only the chefs, but all Harvey employes are given that im portant feeling of partnership. Consequently, they possess a loyalty rarely found in large organizations. This loyalty, this pride in service, this honest devotion to the Harvey reputation and ideal, is perhaps the most important factor in the Harvey success. With out it, no executive would dare hope to maintain such a vast and far-flung system of restaurants and hotels. While the Harvey employe possesses this loyalty and pride, still, through what would appear a miracle of training, he is thoroughly aware of the supreme importance of the guest. No matter what his appearance may be, the guest in a Harvey restaurant is king. He has come in for a good meal and courteous service, and Fred Harvey must not in any way fail to please him. The least show of dissatisfaction must have prompt attention and remedy. A wait ress is guilty of serious misdemeanor if she allows a guest to wait for more butter or another glass of water. Though we all know that the customer is not always right, the Harvey employe has learned to adopt the rule in every case. There have been, of course, exceptions, but even the exception has not met with approval. Fred Harvey once observed a steward engaging in some controversy with a guest. Calling (Continued on page 77) June, 1933 3? THE LIVING ROOM IS A MASTERPIECE OF COLOR HARMONIES. COLOR MAGIC IN THE HOME DINING ROOM CURTAINS ARE OF CANARY YELLOW. Some colors have the tones of muted violins; others bring you to your feet like a shrill fanfare of trumpets. Still others, like that of the window hangings in the diminutive house occupied by the Colin Leiter Campbells at 900 Lake Shore Drive, have the richly glowing quality of a gorgeous autumn sunset. Perhaps they are the color of pomegranates — or when the sun shines through them, it may be an hibiscus flower that they remind you of. It's a color you can't describe, but once you've seen it falling in great voluminous masses to the floor against the deep chocolate brown walls of the room, it's something that lingers on and on in your memory as a vivid, vital experience. The same color appears also on the inside of the book shelves and the ceiling of the room which at night, when after dinner coffee is being served, sheds a soft glow downward onto the silver coffee service. White lamps, choice pieces of original Biedermeier furniture, a Directoire couch covered in a pale green chintz, one or two French chairs upholstered in a dull yellow fabric, and a painted yellow Venetian desk have been harmoniously combined to create a living- room which is striking and original in its effect — the expression of a no less vivid personality. In the dining-room of this small house within a house, the same dark brown walls are enlivened with an ingenious yellow and pale green cut-out wallpaper border, and billowing taffeta curtains of a bright canary color. An off-white rug, Biedermeier furniture, old gold or yellow chair cushions, handsome silver pieces and milk glass, and delicate white shell shades on the side lights complete the furnishings of this small but exquisite dining-room.

MAYER PHOTOGRAPHS BY A. GEORGE MILLER Your correspondent can remember and his memory is only of the six-cylinder, or garden, variety- people getting up on their haunches and wagging their noodles and crying out, "It will never open."' He can remember, from a later date, these same people yawping, "It won't open on time." He can remem ber, as in some mournful panorama, himself and a few more of God's noblemen holding high the torch of faith and carrying on and chanting, "It will open on June 1." But he can't remem ber, for the life of him, anyone baldly predicting, "It will open ahead of time." And that, as we know, h what it did. Think of it. In This Year of Disgrace — 1933. Ahead of time. Well, sir. there is your world's fair. Did any of its friends suspect how good a horse they were betting on? Did any of its enemies suspect how good a thing they were missing? I THE IMPOSING AND COLORFUL EXTERIOR OF THE MAYAN TEMPLE think not. Two weeks — a week — before the opening people could still be heard shouting it down, and people could still be seen pondering its success. The night before the opening, while five thousand men worked under searchlights turning minutes into hours, sand into grass, boards into buildings, and buildings into mu3eums, people could still be found muttering, "It can't be done." They can probably still be found. The great square- headed American public is like that. Tough luck stalked the Fair down to the very day it opened. It happened that in the month of May, 1933, there was no draw ing card on earth to compare with Franklin D. Roosevelt. Naturally any show would want to have the biggest drawing card on earth inside its gates. But that is not why Rufus Dawes wanted Franklin D. Roosevelt to open the Fair. He wanted him because Franklin D. Roosevelt, the biggest drawing card on earth, is President of the United States on the side. Had Mr. Roosevelt been able to come, as President of the United States, there would have been half a million people in Soldier Field the morning of May 27. But Mr. Roosevelt could not come. Nor could his heir-apparent, Mr. Alexander Throttlebottom Garner, as Jonathan Swift Pegler calls him. And so, as one eligible politician after another was weighed and found not wanting, the duty of representing the United States, its dignity, its de pendencies, and its deficit, devolved upon Postmaster-General Farley. So the Fair opened, with Mr. Farley in attendance, and all the local aldermen wearing top-hats and looking, as they thought, like statesmen. On May 27, all the primary pieces of the Exposition were completed, and the exhibits and conces sions were 85 per cent in order. That percentage was lowered immediately after the opening by the decision of firms which had been hanging back to climb on the bandwagon. By the time this story reaches print, every last exhibit and concession will be finished — a record no other world's fair has approached. A Century of Progress (drat that name!) is not yet an assured financial success. There have to be 25,000,000 admissions for the Fair to pay oil. That means something like a daily average of 150,000 customers. The first week's attendance totaled a half million, or a spot over 70,000 a day. On the face of it, that is an alarming showing, although nothing that attracts 70,000 people a day can exactly be said to be a washout. These factors, pro and con, should be reckoned: 1. Because the Fair opened four days ahead of schedule, thousands who had planned to arrive June 1 failed to attend. 2. The first week included, in addition to the opening cere monies, a holiday Memorial Day which naturally raised the attendance above an ordinary week's. 3. Practically no children were free of school — or are yet — throughout the country, an item which means substantially that no families as such had attended. 4. Early attendance at fairs, following the opening day, always take a fearful drop until approximately thirty days after the opening, when the first herd of visitors have returned to their homes and inspired their incredulous townsmen to pack up and head fairward. 5. Employees' vacations do not come, largely, until July and AugU9t. 6. A worthwhile fair rolls up enthusiasm steadily, so that its last days — be they even in November— are the best attended. 7. There are signs that the general economic stress is begin ning to be relieved. Comparisons have been drawn between the early attendance at the World's Columbian Exposition and at A Century of Progress. The first week of the '93 Fair drew 202,000 paying customers, or fewer than half as many as the first week of the current shindy. That is as it should be. The Columbian Exposition drew— it opened May 1 and closed October 30 — 21,500,000 (paying), the daily attendance mounting during the second half of the season until it came within an ace of 300,000 each of the last seven days. On that basis, the present Exposi- CLOSE-UP OF A SYMBOLIC ORNAMENT ON THE AGRICULTURE BUILDING tion will have a (paying) attendance of something over 40,000,000. One of the pertinent items in all shows of all sorts is free admissions. This is an effeminate expression for that large and insistent body of public nuisances colloquially known as gate crashers or deadheads. In the vanguard of all deadheads are two professions: the press and politics. The press claims entree to all shows on the grounds that it gives them free advertising, while the politicians present the more subtle claim that all shows break one law or another and if it wasn't for the cooperation of the law-makers in this law-breaking the show would either be more expensive for its producers or could not be produced at all. It so happens that one of these groups of chiselers, the press, regards the other group of chiselers, the politicians, as a group of chiselers, and as a result it warms the cockles of many a newspaperman's heart to see such gents as Barney Hodes, once an alderman and now a tax commissioner, running around like heads with their chickens off trying to get passes to the Fair. At the World's Columbian Exposition the horrendous number of six million passes, or almost a fourth of all the admissions, were handed out. At fifty cents a head, or, rather, at nothing a head, this racket cuts into the receipts of a show in devastating fashion. The deadheads include, besides the press and the politicians, the exhibitors and concessionaires, the friends and relatives and the friends of the relatives of the exhibitors and concessionaires, and a scattered battalion of dignitaries, or big shots, who claim exemption from paying as they go on the some what mystifying grounds that they have $100,000 incomes. Rufus Dawes, who is an obstinate sort of man, is bullheaded enough to intend to repay the people who invested ten million dollars in the bonds of the Fair (including employes both of the Fair itself and of contractors, who took part of their salaries and wages in the form of bonds) on the now obsolete basis of 100 cents on the dollar. Those bonds can be retired only by the proceeds from gate receipts. The afternoon before the Fair opened, I had what to me was the privilege of meeting Mr. Dawes in one of the corridors of THE SEARS ROEBUCK BUILDING HOUSING DIORAMAS OF ABLE MERCHANDISING the Fair administration building. Gentle as ever, looking no older than he looked two years ago when the overwhelming strain of this thing began, he took me out on a balcony of the building and we stood there I I'm not sure he knew just who I was) looking at the Fair unraveling down both sides of the lagoon. It was a thrill, a plain unsophisticated thrill, to see the man standing there surveying his triumph, as Napoleon would have certainly stood on the balcony of the Kremlin had he conquered Moscow. There was no exultation in his voice or in his words, only in his face. Even there there was no betrayal — there has never been from the first — of the qualms that must have harried him since the world began going to pieces three years or so ago. "I had no idea we'd have it this near ready," was the nearest he could come to a tribute to himself. "I don't believe any other fair has been this nearly complete for its opening, has it?" I said that my investigation of previous fairs confirmed that belief. "These people with me have all worked hard," he said. "I wonder if the public will ever realize how hard they've worked, or how discouraging things have sometimes been to them, or how much gratitude the people who bought our bonds deserve. You know, people are asking me for passes. Everyone wants a pass. They tell me that other fairs gave out millions of passes. This fair won't. It can't. Not until the gate receipts have gone high enough to pay off the bonds. No one who can afford the fifty cents admission has a right to ask for a pass, not as long as it jeopardizes the investment that thousands of people made in this fair when the whole world was still wonder ing if there would be a fair. No friend of mine will ask me for a pass. Am I right?" I should probably have told him he was right if I thought he wasn't, because I am in awe of the man. But I was able to nod with something more than my head to that question. The logic of it was too plain to deny. That measly fifty cents that people don't want to pay just because it is so measly — that fifty cents means the success or the failure of this Fair. It means that the people who worked in this Fair and believed in it and invested MODERN IS AS MODERNS SEE IT-A -K SOPHISTICATED MAP OF THE FAIR 1 Adler Planetarium 25 Egypt 2 Administration Building 26 Eitel's Rotisserie 3 Agricultural Group 27 Electrical Building 4 Air Show, Inc. 28 Enchanted Island 5 Alaska 29 Field Museum 6 Alpine Garden 30 Firestone Building 7 American Radiator and 31 Florida Gardens Standard Sanitary Corp. 32 Fort Dearborn 8 The A. & P.

No one who has put money into the Exposition, whom I have seen or heard, has, even so early, any doubt of the wisdom of his investment. About as impressive a comment in this regard as has been made was overheard in the General Motors build ing. W. S. Knudsen, president of the Chevrolet company and director of the magnificent General Motors exhibit, was talking to a friend: "'We put a million dollars into this thing. I wish it had been five million." That means not only that people are attending the Fair or attending the G. M. exhibit. It means that the president of a great corporation is convinced that this Fair is making people want to spend money. That, of course, is what every exhibitor cares about. There is no direct return on these exhibits. From the little fellow who spent five hundred dollars to the big fellow who spent a million, every exhibitor stands to "lose" every cent he invested. But altruism did not beguile him into participa tion — although it may have played some small part. It was business that brought these business men into the Fair, faith that people would soon be spending money. And when people are spending money there is no depression. This brings me to an unhappy point in my peregrinations. If the people who spent money to exhibit their wares in this Fair are those who had faith in recovery, isn't it reasonable to assume that those who did not spend money to exhibit their wares did not have faith in recovery? Where in this Fair is Henry Ford, whose faith is expressed on his personal stationery in newspaper advertisements all over the country? Where in this Fair is the William Wrigley, Jr., Company, which builds white skyscrapers on the excess profits from chew ing gum? Where in this Fair is the Chicago Tribune, one of the world's richest, if not greatest, newspapers, which opened an exhibit not on the Fair grounds but in its own ivory tower a week after the Fair opened? Where in this Fair are the P. Lorillard, American, Liggett & Myers, and R. J. Reynolds tobacco companies, with their million-dollar bonuses for their presidents and their twenty- million-dollar patrimonies for Libby Holman's baby? Where in this Fair is the General Outdoor Advertising Agency, which upset the plans for an exhibit of the advertis ing industry by refusing to participate, and why did not the advertising industry participate anyway, without the coopera tion of General Outdoor? Automobiles. Chewing gum. Newspapers. Cigarettes. Ad vertising. If this has been a century of progress for other industries, what has it been for these? The companies named here have been gathered at random; perhaps I have overlooked other delinquents equally obligated to the advance of the past century, and perhaps some of the companies named here have other reasons than lack of faith for their failure to participate in the Fair. If they have, and if they care to present them, these columns are open to them. But I grow moral and indignant, and this is a world's fair, not a war. Since those who had faith will cash in on it and those who hadn't it will perish, as the Good Book promises us, the reward and the punishment will be distributed automatically and there is no need to grow warm in, under or around the collar about it. We can move on apace from the burdensome consideration of facts and figures to the larger matter at hand — the Fair as it stands, as it lives and breathes and knocks your eye out. There are some few things to be said about the exposi tion from the viewpoint of what it is, rather than how or why. You go into a world's fair as you go into a gas attack — with SYMBOLIC ORNAMENTATION OF- THE HALL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE your eyes open. If you get out alive, you are lucky. If you lose your money or your life, you have no holler coming. There are places on the Fair grounds where you can get gypped, plenty of them, but at least they do not call themselves Investment Securities or Trust and Savings Bank. There has been a good deal of yodeling about the overcharge for food, drink, retretes and side-shows, and while I have not gadded about the place thoroughly enough to make an authentic report, I have had some slight experience with this matter myself. These; two claims can be made for the Fair: there is no actual bald extor tion from the farmers as there has always been before, and there is more that is free in this exposition than in any previous one. By next month, your humble servant will be able to offer a predigested survey of the entire Fair. The clutching fingers of press-time prevents his having examined every item in detail, and some large matters, like the Horticulture Building, the Sky- Ride, the Firestone tire-making, the Home and Industrial Arts Group, the Maya temple, and the Pageant of Transportation he has missed entirely. But no one man can tell a discriminat ing crowd of adults what they ought to like; he can tell them only what he likes and what they will like if they happen to like what he likes. Here then are one man's far-from-complete recommendations : Most beautiful building (externals) : Chrysler Building. THE SHEER, MAJESTIC PYLONS OF THE FEDERAL BUILDING Second most beautiful building (externals) : Federal Building. Loveliest retreat from science, industry and whoopee: the Belgian Village. (Financed not by the Belgian government, which will doubtless reap the profits in visitors to Belgium for years to come, but by a group of American Belgians.) Liveliest spot: Paris. (The most diverting section of the Fair and the most devilish. It is also the best gyp joint at the Fair, and is proud of it. The peep-shows, "life" classes, etc., are all frauds, my operatives tell me, but worth the investment just for the hint of what might have been.) Best state exhibits: California and Florida, I am sorry to say. (Sorry, because these two states have grown rich on hokum, and this is more of the same, and very intriguing. Florida has the most perfectly constructed dioramas in the Fair. It is to the more or less eternal disgrace of half the states in the Union that they did not participate. Some, in the South and West are destitute, of course. But where are Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware? — Don't tell me they couldn't afford it.) Most elaborate exhibit: General Motors. Gorgeousest automobile: Packard. Most wonders-of-science exhibit: General Electric's House of Magic. (With the additional charm of Floyd Gibbons' not being there.) AN IRON HORSE OF ANOTHER DAY AT THE TRAVEL AND TRANSPORTATION BUILDING Most worthy-of-a-week's-time : First, the Hall of Science. (To date, the petroleum industry; the medical profession — the Mayo Clinic has a perfectly darling collection of gallstones; the Skew Curve Projection — three dimensional light; the mechanical man; and the Squibb medieval apothecary shop — "when a drug store was a drug store" — are especially recommended. Many of the exhibits that look so nice defy the comprehension of this, the average, citizen, and the preparation of mo3t of the mathe matical formulae induced to explain them was a waste of some body's time.) Second, the Federal Building. (The U. S. government has done a bang-up job — don't let the fact that it's on the Island or that the politicians had something to do with it deter you. The Post Office's mail frauds exhibit is a wonder. Best organized collection of exhibits: Food and Agricul ture Building. (Here International Harvester has a fine ex hibit; Heinz gives away food; Morton's salt has an engaging rainstorm; Aunt Jemima, in the flesh, and such flesh, makes pancakes; the American Institute of Meat Packing has a poor exhibit relieved only by a couple of "crown roasts" which were certainly the inspiration of the Travel and Transportation dome: and inside one of the east entrances to the building a group of Sweden's food concerns operate a little snack-and-beer counter that affords some of the most interesting and least expensive eating to be found in the Exposition.) {Continued on page 59) THE DINING ROOM IN THE GEORGIAN MANNER THE BOOK ROOM IS IN UNFINISHED PINE ANOTHER VIEW OF THE TUDOR LIVING ROOM June, J933 LIVING ROOM IN THE HOME OF MR. AND MRS. BEN ALEXANDER IN WAUSAU, WISCONSIN TUDOR GRANDEUR An Old English Home in Wisconsin By Kathryn E. Ritchie THOSE colorful and pompous days in England known as the Tudor period produced a type of house which we of today find unusually well adapted to certain green and wooded sites here in America whose physical characteristics suggest somewhat the rugged surroundings of the homes of our early English forefathers. Consist' ent with a certain crude magnificence of life and pageantry which existed in those days, Tudor houses were characterized on the exte' rior by a sturdiness of appearance, a picturesqueness, a well'estab- lished look which grew out of their complete harmony with their surroundings. On the interior they were rich and dignified in effect with a complete lack of sensationalism and a frankness of pur- pose which was in keeping with the spirit of those swashbuckling, virile times. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Alexander in Wausau, Wisconsin, where Mr. Alexander has long been identified with the lumber indus' try and allied enterprises, illustrates in an interesting manner how the essential features of an old Tudor house have been incorporated into a modern American home. The house commands the top of a hill where it stands among forest trees with their high-ceilinged shade, surrounded by smooth lawns, and gracious gardens. In one direction it looks off over the city of Wausau, and in another, down onto the river which winds off into the Wisconsin woods and prairie lands. On entering the house, you sense immediately its early English atmosphere. Plain walls having the appearance of rough finished stone give an air of simplicity to the hall which is enriched by a rare old Algerian rug in soft shades of brown, tan, and gold. The living' room might well be the "great hall" of some old Tudor house, its rare oak panelling, moulded cornice and plain skirting having been removed from "The Old Inn" — Cornhill, Ipswich, England, which dates back to the sixteenth century. This together with the long "oriel" window in a generous bay, the dressed stone window jambs and doorways, the simple stone fireplace without a mantel, the Gothic arch of the ceiling and the stone doorway, carry you back in imagina' tion to those stately, colorful days of old England. A beautiful Algerian "Point Hongroise" tap estry in soft shades of brown, yellow, tan and green decorates one wall, for without its tapestry no important room in Tudor times could be complete. Other wall ornamentation than this was not looked upon with favor. The window draperies which are a reproduction of an old hand'blocked linen, repeat the same soft colorings as are found in the wall hanging. The large table and desk are unusually hand some sixteenth century antiques with (Continued on page 78) 49 LINEN GOES MERRILY INTO THE EVENING IN BLUE WITH RED CHER RIES. POWELL.

FEMININE FASHION In the Midsummer Manner By Faye Thompson Ford Carter THE right and the wrong way to dress — what a thin line there is between these two levels. And how easy it is to step over that line in the wrong direction. A clothes sense is sometimes born in one, but more often it is acquired, and I cannot help but see, irom my observations of those who come to my Fashion Shows at A Century of Progress, how widespread is the desire to be on the right side of the dividing line. Every woman is a personage, and as an individual entity in society she belongs to one category or another as far as type is concerned. A Frenchman — an artist — some years ago made a huge success^ by devoting his time to telling women what their types really NVere. That is more or less what we are doing at the World's Fair. The mannikins who show the clothes are chosen, not because they all follow perfectly the long thin lines that have become popular today, hut because they represent different sizes and styles, colorings and formations of women. Those who contend that all women today dress alike, whether they are old or young, are simply unobservant. No woman is old as women once were — that is true — but a well dressed woman regards her age just as much as she does the shape of her hips when she is choosing clothes. How to do this with efficiency and success is something which women will go a long way to find out. Take, for instance, the sailor hats which have lately come into vogue. They are a throwback to the nineties and at first they looked rakish in the extreme. As a matter of fact, it develops that a well dressed woman of sixty can wear a hat of this sort with the utmost kindness to herself. But she must wear it with the right clothes, she must tip it at the right angle, she must get used to the sight of herself that way so that she carries it off with a flair. Today the idea that a woman must, by hook or crook, be pretty-pretty in order to have any foundation for good dressing is entirely passe. No time need be wasted even upon a con' sideration of that outworn ideal. A woman is what she is. And in all modern reasoning it is up to her to make the best of what she has —to fetish her good points — to dress her part. This, in its essence, is good dressing, and the plan consistently carried out cannot help but produce most gratifying results. The manufacture of clothes, today, has become so perfected that it is quite possible to dress individually and well in what are called readymade clothes. That is one of the (Continued on page 69) June, 1933 ULTRA-ULTRA IN A BLACK LINEN DRESS, WHITE LINEN COAT AND A TRUE MERRY WIDOW HAT. SAKS- FIFTH AVENUE.

MARTHA WEATHERED. 51 RISE AND SWIM With beach clubs and private bathing sands already open, and with public shores ready to be declared officially open (Park Commissioners never realize that it's summer'time till mid'July), the swimming and sunbathing male is beginning to wonder about beach attire. In the illustration below, the figure to the right, background, is wearing a yellow terry cloth robe, built like a polo coat, double'breasted with large pearl buttons, patch pockets and a half -belt in the back; it is much shorter, you will note, than other models of this type robe, striking the wearer at the knee. The next figure, in a bathing suit, wears flannel trunks, full and comfortable, and a horizontally striped (about a half 'inch stripe) shirt. The color combinations are inter esting. For instance, the trunks may be gray with a scarlet stripe down the sides and the shirt of grey and scarlet stripes. The next figure wears very full beach trousers of linen woven in the south of France with a zephyr wool shirt, quarter'sleeves, with a collar. This costume may be had in terra'cotta, white and blue. The trunks on the seated figure are gabardine, extremely full, with a high waistline so that they may be worn without a shirt. 52 The Chicagoan Visit the Shops in the Pittsfield Building Chicago's Foremost PRESCRIPTION DRUG STORES Although we devote our major efforts to the accurate com pounding of prescrip tions, our patrons find here a complete stock of approved drug staples as well as any other merchandise which rightfully be longs in a properly conducted, modern pharmacy.

DOLLAR 9UamUuf£ma 54 To Read or Not to Read Something Readable for Everybody By Marjorie Kaye I COULD not love the books of the month half so well loved I not The Chicagoan's World's Fair Boo\ more than any and/ or all of them. This timely, timeless volume is the book of the month and of the year. Its thematic cover design is a sheer, deathless sym' boli^ation of A Century of Progress. Beyond lie John Drury's incom parable diner's chart, Milton S. Mayer's classic story of the exposition, A. George Miller's epochal camera record of the fair and a matchless summarisation of Chicago's civilised interests in 1933 by the staff of The Chicagoan. The book is for now and forever, a suavely com petent service volume of the moment and a magnificently mature, modern and complete souvenir of the age, the occasion and the scene. No visitor to the fair, no resident of Chicago or elsewhere, no person now living upon and possessing a normal interest in this planet and its affairs ought to deny himself ownership of this work. Other books current and readable or not, in the opinion of readers who are likewise writers and ought to know, are: Always a Grand Duke — Grand Du\e Alex ander of Russia — Farrar 6? Rinehart : The final opus of Grand Duke Alexander is of profound interest. The fact that he lived through three wars and three revolutions would not mean so much if it were not for his skillful pen pictures. It is an historical document of rare value and enduring qualities, the work of a real aristocrat, fearless and frank. — M. K. An American Girl — Tiffany Thayer — Ken dall : Murder in the Drake hotel, seduction in Andrachia and a very literal sort of monkey business in Hollywood are major moments in Mr. Thayer's morbid merriment of the season. Lest Mr. Thayer's pen were impotent to reveal the depravity of all this in adequate detail, Mr. Steele Savage provides pictures. The result is a little more than twice as dirty as the sum of the gentlemen's individual worsts. I'm afraid it isn't quite dirty enough to be suppressed. — W. R. W. Andrew Jackson — The Border Captain — Marquis James — Bobbs- Merrill : This indubitably worthy, valuable, meritorious and otherwise commendable book has had a tough break in this column. Received in good season, it was passed on to the cus tody of Mr. Milton S. Mayer, than whom no reading and writing person in contact with this journal is better qualified by nature, dis position and previous performance to render just, studious and de pendable review. And then came (1) the message from Alabama, calling him hence instanter, (2) the putting of The Chicagoan World's Fair Boo\ to press and (3) the deadline call of the present number and the need of his writing the article herein. What another month may bring is still a little problematical, but an off night or two to read and review the book is among the many pleasant things hope fully predicted. Meanwhile, it seems a pretty good idea to buy, bor row or otherwise obtain a copy of the volume and read it. Fifty thousand reviewers, even professional ones, can't be wrong. — M. K. The Coming Struggle for Power — John Strachey — Covici-Friede: I'm a little out of step with the writers on economics, social trends and class interests. I'm so because I've the feeling that most of these writers are a little out of step with events, or, rather, that events have moved entirely too rapidly and rebelliously to be kept in step with. Nor am I sorry, for the bookish boys were getting pretty hopeless about everything. It's too bad, though, that a book so soundly conceived and ably written as the present volume should break i upon the rock of unforseseeable good fortune.— W. R. W. Cut Your Score — George E. Lardner — Viking: This will appeal to almost any golfer now shooting just over or under a hundred and* ambitious to do a little better. Whether the Class A fraternity will like it doesn't matter, as the great mass of con sumers in the golf field are either Class C or just into Class B. Lard ner's book devotes each page to one sketch and how to use one club. The Chicagoan Most of it is plausible and practical. When he gets into explaining how to put on backspin and a few other touches, the boys contented with simply hitting the ball can turn the page. For one thing, he advo cates choking a spoon for a short approach. I liked that. It's nice to have authority for a shot you have always apologised for.— E. S. C. Design For Living — 7-{oel Coward — Double- day, Doran: George Nathan, the professional smart-aleck, has been parodying and ribbing the play in practically every publication in the country from Vanity Fair to The American Spectator, or at least in those two. He 5O50ed the play in his several reviews of it a time ago, whereas the other New York critics heaped from one to twenty orchids on it. And after all, the other New York critics are pretty bright boys, too — Hammond, Benchley, Gabriel, Atkinson, Mantle, Winchell, Anderson, Brown — to mention a few. Maybe, horrid thought, Nathan was wrong; not that it'd matter to him. (Nathan doesn't like Woollcott, to whom the play was dedicated, either.) To us it was good reading, good theatre reading — better than that really, damned good reading. To be sure there was that one bad line, but probably Mr. Coward is awfully sorry about that line by this time. And it must be dreadfully hard for the Lunts to bear up under it. Chicagoans, because Mr. Coward feels that way about them (you know how he feels) , probably will not have the opportunity of seeing Design for Living in Chicago, so it's a book to tab. — D. C. P. Girls in Uniform — Christa Wtnsloe — Little, Brown: The appearance in book form of Girls in Uniform will probably cause another flare-up of the controversy as to whether or not this study of a Prussian girl's school contains lesbian suggestions. In the past the affirmative of this proposition has been nastily insin uated by the high minded gentlemen who wrote the blurbs outside the theatres, the negative rationally expounded by most decent minded persons. The publication of the play in book form adds little to the discussion, except to make it clear that the emphasis one way or the other would come from the acting. In the text itself there is but slight suggestion of the abnormal. For those who have not seen the play or the film, the book will make easy and stimulating reading. The logical tragic denouement is here set forth instead of the anti- climactic "happy ending" tacked on for cinema purposes. — W. C. B. Great Americans as Seen by the Poets — Burton Stevenson — Lippincott: There are so very many books and there is so very little verse that no reputable compendium ought to be permitted to go its quiet way into the shadows. Nor, I think, ought poetry to be ground through reviewers' typewriters nor bandied about by the unlyric tongues of prose writers. Wherefore, the thing to do with Mr. Stevenson's book is to buy it, have it about, pick it up now and then and again and later, but give it place. It will repay. — W. R. W. How to Restore Values — A. W. Ben\ert and Earl Harding — John Day: This is a thin pamphlet reviewing the economic situation and suggesting remedies. President Roosevelt's Loo\ing Forward, by the same publisher, seems to me to have covered this ground rather too well for a work of this character to attract much attention. — M. K. In One Ear — Fran\ Sullivan — Viking: Frank ("Three Rover Boys") Sullivan, author of the most recent collection of short mystery stories entitled In One Ear (and now we must jump in between a couple of parentheses to make it very plain to you that the Sullivan opus is not to be confused with a column of the same title which began a week after the book came out and is now run ning, or maybe it isn't now running — these Hearst housecleanings, you know — on Saturdays in a local Hearst afternoon newspaper named The American) , is a short, handsome fellow, a bit too stocky, with a peculiar lumbering gait and a necktie that keeps slipping all the time. Mr. Sullivan is one of the East's funniest writers, really. And, because all funny writers are in the East, he is one of the nation's funniest writers. Really. He used to be on the old New York World when the old New York World (not to be confused with the new New York World, more often than not called the World-Telegram) was the newspaper with a capital K.

But the few gallons of water you can drink in a year deserve to be extra good and extra pure. The cost is trivial — the satisfaction to mind and system astonishing. Corinnis has never been swum in — even by a goldfish. It has no funny taste. It's just downright good, clean, sparkling water bottled as it gushes from Nature's rocky springs. Order a case today and keep a bottle always in the refrigerator. Most neighborhood stores carry Corinnis too — folks often run out and or der bv the bottle. HINCKLEY & 420 W.

Stanley Kceshak Blackstone Shop 669 NORTH MICHIGAN AVENUE -AT ERIE STREET Sullivan were all members (and what members!) of its editorial staff. But enough about Frank Sullivan and his new collection entitled In One Ear. Let us now learn a bit about the man himself. He is a collection of humorous essays that have been, for the most part, pub lished in Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, The K[ew Tor\er. And you'd better read it or you'll be sorry. — D. C. P. The Journal of Arnold Bennett — 1921- 1928 — Arnold Bennett — Viking: Attuned to the American ear, the final volume in a series of three, the de luxe sets, completes one of the most amazing autobiographies of all times. No one can profitably miss this masterly contribution to the world of letters. The Viking Press announces the publication of a complete one-volume edition of the three in the de luxe set, covering the period 1896 to 1928. This is a perfect selection for your literary friend. — M. K. Julia Newberry's Diary — Julia K[ewberry — W. W. Norton: An informally eloquent sketching of a period and people perduringly interesting to Chicagoans whose love of their city is deeper than front footage and older than the Hoover boom, charm ingly introduced by Margaret Ayer Barnes and Janet Ayer Fairbank in a preface itself a vital bit of Chicagoana. — W. R. W. The Land of Promise — Edmond Fleg — Macauly: Here is a fine, comprehensive volume sympathetically and unreservedly depicting the diverse and deathless aspects of Jerusalem in beautiful, impeccable prose. It is a splendid book to read before visiting the Holy Lands and no less splendid if one never does, an excellent addition to the permanent library of the rounded reader and a book of great charm in any case. — M. K. Life's Place in the Cosmos — Hiram Percy Maxim — Appleton: Stepped down to lay comprehension, yet mani festly grounded in his vast and minute knowledge of science, the author's conclusions with respect to the past, present and probable future relation of man to the universe register with terrific impact. It is a little futile to say that it is the kind of book that everyone should read, knowing that everyone recoils from precisely that asser tion, but what else is to be done about the matter? Better, perhaps, to say that those who do read it will be glad that they did. Beside its tremendous sweep of authority, its ready play of immeasurable forces, causes, effects, fixtion is a flimsy tool. — M. K. Long Lost Father — B. G. Stern — Knopf: This is for long unsung lost fathers and Don Juans looking for unend ing, indefinite pleasure; in fact it is for everyone interested in chromo somes. It is as smart as the Borzoi hound and is date proof. The modern version of the Bodoni manner in typography is a pleasure for weary eyes and the story has more kick than a pony of vodka. Read it.— M. K. Master Builders of Opera — George C Jell — Scribners: Mr. Jell has achieved a convenient, compact and infor mative volume. It contains brief sketches of the lives and works of the major composers. An appended list of their operas and their principal non-operatic works is definitely valuable. — M. K. Mike Fink — Walter Blair and Fran\lin J. Meine — Henry Holt: Undoubtedly this is a better book than I thought. I've been a little surfeited with early Ohio, but I catch myself telling friends about interesting parts of Mi\e Fin\ that impressed me not at all in the reading. The hero is a coarsely romantic hero of the days before steam on the Ohio and Mississippi. Like a great many books in the last few years, the authors seem to have strained for a his torical document at the expense of the reader's entertainment. Too, this one sports a glossary listing authoritative proof of detail accu racy. A good deal less has killed a good many better works. — E. S. C. No Nice Girl Swears — Alice Leone Moats — Lippincott: This book will doubtless set a precedent for handbooks on What the Toung Girl About Town Should Know. However, with changing fashions in etiquette and faithfulness it will need appen dages at frequent intervals. Speaking of etiquette, why does someone not start the old continental custom of keeping the woman on the 56 The Chicagoan right, be she vierge or demi-vierge. The influx of girls who do not swear cannot change an informal office into a formal office. Pop ularity for this volume can be predicted. — M. K. Not to Eat — Not for Love — George Anthony Weller — Harrison Smith and Robert Haas: It is axiomatic that most college novels are very feeble. This is probably due to the fact that young writers are usually too immature to evaluate what they have just passed through; older writers get balmy and goofy when thinking of the golden days of their youth. In George Weller we apparently have that rare combination of a young man with a mature mind. l^[ot to Eat — ?{ot to Love is a novel about Harvard which no Harvard men can afford to miss, nor any other person who has an interest in university life in this country. The book is keenly pene trating in observation, well balanced and humorous in interpretation, beautifully lyric in its prose style. Stover at Tale, This Side of Para dise and The Diary of a Freshman could all be lost between its cov ers.— W. C B. Our Baby's First Seven Years — Hermien D. "Nusbaum — Mother's Aid, Chicago Lying-in Hospital : If I may say so, this is the book of the month, some month at any rate, for more sound citizens of the commonwealth than Sinclair Lewis can shake a stick at. It contains contributions by Dr. J. B. DeLee and a staff of eminent experts and is endorsed by Dr. Morris Fishbein in no minc ing words. It tells more about what to do and not to do for, with and about the youngest member of the family — any family — than anything of like character I've ever seen, and I've seen plenty. All this by way of accompaniment to rather more than the usual number of pages for the entry of more than the usual range of records, mementos and so on into the night, not omitting a completely scored lullably for just that occasion. Probably most of the readers of The Chicagoan's book department will get around, sooner or later, to a definite need of just such a volume. There is none better, and a word in time saves a lot of frenzied shopping. — W. R. W. Point-to-Point — M. J. Farrell — Farrar & Rine hart: An oasis in the wilds of over-night novels and under-done books, the story enriches while it entertains, teaches as it goes and slips at long last into snug harbor on that high, personal shelf whence go, against another day's need, the genuine treasures of modern com position. Do not let your shelf foe longer nude of it. — W. R. W. Pond Hall's Progress — H. W. Freeman — Henry Holt: There is not a breath of euphemism in this novel of rural England. It is the continuance of Fathers of Their People but Pond Hall's Progress is complete in itself. It is a very vivid picturiza- tion of English and Italian peasantry and agricultural Suffolk is the vantage point. — M. K. Progress and Poverty — Henry George — R. Shalkenbach Foundation: A permanently valuable, pertinent and penetrant work, republished after fifty years and worthy of library room forever. — G. S. Psycho-Analysis Today- — Edited hy Sandor Lorand — Covici-Friede: Psycho-analysis has crept up on the public with all the subtle insinuation of a smooth drink which slides easily down the throat and then knocks your legs wabbly. Today even those who profess violently to disbelieve in the theories and therapeutic practices of Freud can be caught using the terms and accepting the tenets of the great Viennese psychologist. Repression, frustration, complexes and inferiority feelings are part of our every day appraisal of behaviorism. Psycho -Analysis Today is a compilation of essays by various eminent practitioners in the field, setting forth the results of the most recent explorations into the subconscious mind. It is a technical book which can be recommended to anyone who has a fairly comprehensive understanding of the subject. — W. C. B. St. Augustine — Rebecca West — Appleton: The life of this Roman provincial is vividly told in this concise, in formative volume of rare charm. It is a worthy contribution to the lengthy Appleton list of biographies. — M. K.

ITALIAN LINE than this collection of eight stories, or more properly life sketches, by Miss Ferber. It is ideal summer reading, as each sketch is complete in itself and sufficient in itself to warrant reading. They Brought Their Women apparently is estimated by the publisher as the strong est of the eight, but Keep It Holy is a gem. — E. S. C. Three Novels of Love — John Galsworthy — Scribners: Here is abidable documentary proof of Galsworthy's genius. Dar\ Flower (1913), Beyond (1915 and Saints' Progress (1917), three complete novels written before the completion of the Forsyte Saga, depict the love life of a man, a woman, and a youthful pair. Tragedy is mitigated by philosophical subjugation in each novel and it would be difficult to find one volume of 739 pages containing such vivid characterisation and colorful fabrication. — M. K. Time to Live — Gove Hambidge — Whittlesey House: Speaking of Adventures in the Use of Leisure, as the sub title suggests, I don't know where one could find a tiny volume of 144 pages containing so many ideas. I missed only skeet shooting and a pipe organ in the whole. You can read this with a great deal of pleasure and much profit. — M. K. Uncle Peel — Irving Bacheller — Frederick Stokes: The author of Eben Holden and The Light in the Clearing comes forth with one of the most interesting novels of the boom era. It is authentic and excellent reading. It would be well to read Uncle Peel before we launch another boom, and it contains one of the best portraits of the Florida sky rocket imaginable. — M. K. The Unconquerable Tristan — B. M. Steig- man — Macmillan: This is quite an unusual biography of Richard Wagner. It is chiefly concerned with the muses who inspired him. It tells nothing of his rejection of orthodox doctrine in composition and other points of interest to musicians, but it is very interesting and should greatly enhance your appreciation of the works of this great master. The muse Gosima Wagner is the most noteworthy of all and her influence and inspiration are things really worth reading about. — M. K. Unfinished Symphony — Sylvia Thompson — Little-Brown: Why Sylvia Thompson, with a long string of successes to her credit and Oliver Cromwell as ancestor, should take the most fascinating title of all her works and apply it to a story with a sala cious taint baffles me. The spectacle of the intelligent daughter of an English playwright conducting herself in the alleged manner of the hill-billy Kentucky peasantry makes me quite frothy. The book has been called her best work, but I doubt it. — M. K. "White Collar Girl — Faith Baldwin — Farrar & Rinehart: Faith Baldwin has put herself on a very adequate roy alty basis by fictional treatment of girls in business. She grinds out yarns about secretaries, lady bond salesmen and beauty shop proprie tors with a facility approaching that of the late lamented Edgar Wallace in the mystery field. Nor is her vision ever far removed from Hollywood. White Collar Girl is a story about a Bryn Mawr lassie who wins the respect and admiration of everybody with whom she comes in contact. She does it by selling securities, cleaning up a wicked little city and marrying the son of the local millionaire. It would be a good role for Katharine Hepburn. — W. C. B. Win at Contract With Any Partner — Shepard Barclay — Appleton: This little book is well worth while. Any fairly experienced bridge player can well read it, especially if he leaves his suburban home far enough to pick up a partner who doesn't believe Culbertson invented the game. It is handily arranged. Most books on bridge have a little too much elementary information in them which you must wade through in order to find a gem or two. If you have sufficient confidence in your game to play ten cents a hundred you can skip the first half and enjoy the second. — E. S. C. And in the next issue, barring misadventure or sunstroke, there will be reviews of the following and other works : Anthony Adverse: Hervey Allen (Farrar & Rinehart).

IT'S ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER Victory Comes to the Lake Front (Begin on Page 37) Most inspiring exhibit: The Lincoln exhibit in the Illinois Host Building. (Here some of the most personal and homely mementoes of Abraham Lincoln thrust on the visitor the realiza tion that this century of progress has improved machines faster than men.) Most tedious section of the fair: The General Exhibits Groups. (The spirit of color and motion was missed somehow in the assembling of such fields as furniture, office equipment, textiles, etc. But no one part of the group can be passed up entirely for fear of missing such impressive exhibits as U. S. Steel's, Phoenix Hosiery's, Elgin's, Cuneo's, somebody's — I haven't seen it yet — African diamond mine, and a few more scattered gems.) Most-for-your-money-exhibit: First, Bell Telephone's free long distance calls to fifty-four large citie3. Second, Art Insti tute's all-star team of immortal paintings, valued on the hoof at $100,000,000 or $100,000,000,000. (The 25c admission charge does not entitle you to samples.) Third, A. & P.'s carnival. Fourth, Time and Fortune building. Most-likely-to-fail-because-of-exorbitant-charge : First, Sky-Ride, "Supreme Thrill of '33." (The man who collects your 80c — 40c for the ride alone, 40c for a trip all the way to the top — gets the supreme thrill.) Second, tie among Italian Restaurant, Old Heidelberg, Blue Ribbon Casino and several other attractive beaneries. Most - likely - to - succeed - because -of -reasonable -charge : First, A Century of Progress. (Eighty-five mile3 of sights and sounds for 50c.) Second, Miller's High Life Fish Bar, on Northerly Island. (Delectable place, delectable eating — 4-bit lunch, one buck dinner.) Third, B-G Inn (nothing Fairish or unusual about it) in Sears-Roebuck building. Fourth, hot dog and hamburger stands (one dime — ten cents). Fifth, Wal- green's, serving, unfortunately, typical Walgreen food, but, for tunately, at typical Walgreen prices. Sixth, people who bring their own lunch and deposit the garbage in the garbage cans. That, in somewhat formless form, represents what one man likes best and dislikes worst after a few meandering visits to A Century of Progress. But each to his taste, or vive le roi, as the French put it. It doe3 not matter that one exhibit i3 swell and another one terrible. What matters is that you can't keep away from the place. I know I can't, and I am no great one for going places. It i3 so confoundedly different from everything we have seen and heard and cursed and wept over the past few years. It is so bright and so simple. It is so new. You go in cynical and sour and you come out convinced that you'll pull through and so will everyone else. You sit on your front porch or you sail on the lake or you drive down the boulevard at night and watch the lights go on and transform the place into a paint factory on fire, and you say to yourself, "By the dog of Egypt, if someone had given me twenty-five million smackers and a strip of land and told me to do what I wanted, this is what I'd have done. It's just what I'd have done. A green building here. A purple building there. A yellow building there. Filled full of people and light. I couldn't have done it better myself." And you couldn't have. The people who conceived this Fair and built it struck just the right note at a time when the rest of us did not know where to turn next. If you ask me, and even if you don't ask me, I think that A Century of Progress (drat that name!) is a galloping success. / sit tnp sisi'yvl-i'nrr iio<in ' at the dazzling new EMPIRE ROOM of ^ PALMER HOUSE J Veloz & Yolanda Here the royalty of enter tainers reign nightly!

INTERLUDE FOR BEAUTY Around the Salons By Marcia Vaughn THE business of being a visitor gets pretty strenuous at any time. In a Fair summer with admonitions from every side of "you must do this'" and "you ought to see that" and "you simply can't miss — ", every visitor sooner or later will feel like ending it all in a snug little bed. When this mood comes upon you (visitor or hostess) the place to end it all is in the downy cushions of one of the salons pictured on this page. These salons, you see, do more than rest you. While you get the much needed relaxation your nerves are triply soothed by a refresh ing treatment, and your tired eyes and face are rejuvenated to a new glow; while all the needed refurbishing of coiffure, hands and feet is done for you as you rest. There are thousands of beauty shops about town of course, but you need more than that after a session of doing the town and entertain' ing or being entertained. So we have selected the most delightful and restful salons we have, where treat' BMTOWgHBHWWjgWilllli ii II " ments are a real treat and they prac tically do you over in an hour's session. In the manner of the nur' sery books, then, A stands for Elisabeth Arden. This noted house has a three floor salon on the near North Side, at 70 East Walton Place, where you can enjoy a half 'hour quick refreshing and cleansing treatment or several hours of everything, from the famous Ardena bath and massage for resting and stimu' lating tired bodies (as well as reducing) to a thorough face treatment or mask which will get way down and firm sag ging contours, nourish and refine the complexion. Your course ends with a subtle new makeup which will make your men decide that the gay life is certainly doing wonders for you, and you ought to do this oftener. Incidentally, the first floor of the salon is given over to a bright little gift shop which those of you who are look' ing for unusual feminine gifts should not miss. Elizabeth Arden selects the most exquisite lingerie, negligees and accessories abroad for this little shop. These as well as the various cases and packages of her own products, are just |H::: i mmam BEAUTY TREATMENTS FROM HEAD TO TOE AWAIT YOU IN THE SALON OF HELENA RUBINSTEIN. 60 The Chicagoan NEW VITALITY, A TONED-UP SYSTEM, AND SLIMMER LINES ARE FOUND IN THE COMFORTABLE NEW MACGREGOR CABINETS OF THE LANCHERE BEAUTY SALON. MARSHALL FIELD. the thing to enchant any woman's soul. Marshall field's, of course, is a Mecca for any visitor. Those of you who have not been here recently must explore the new Lanohere salon on the fifth floor, a gracious, serene spot with not an iota of department store'ism about it. The face and hair treat' ments here are something lovely, and you will be thrilled by the things Charles or Phillip can do to your coiffure. Here too is something absolutely revitalizing to tired bodies, in the shape of the MacGregor Cabinet which you see illustrated. You lie down on the comfortable bed and slide into the cabinet where you are treated to a series of lights and magnetic rays which do the most amazing things to your body and soul. The explanation is all too scientific for me to convey (or grasp) but the result is simply glorious. The whole thing is extremely soothing and pleasant to take. You arise, a new person, toxic poisons removed, simply bounding with joy and energy — not at all enervated as one sometimes is after too'Strenuous body treatments. The MacGregor Cabinets were carefully tested for years before Field's installed them and they are highly recommended for obesity, toxic conditions, or that terribly tired feeling. When you feel as if A NEW WORLD'S AMATEUR SKEET RECORD 188 STRAIGHT O. "NE of Long Island's finest Skeet shots, John H. Hulsen of the North Shore Skeet Club, Huntington, set this remarkable record of 188 straight targets in the New York State Skeet Championships at Babylon, on May 12. It is an outstanding example of the finest amateur shoot ing, and establishes a record hard to beat. Mr. Hulsen made this world's record with Kleanbore Shur Shot Skeet Loads and a Remington 12 gauge pump gun. ABANDON FAT ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE— AND THE PROCESS IS EASY AND AGREEABLE. MANDEL BROTHERS. John H. Hulsen of Huntington, L. I. NEW JERSEY SKEET CHAMPIONSHIP Frank W. '1 raeger, Jr. of Montclair, N. J. 100 STRAIGHT FOLLOWING closely this new world's record, and against the toughest kind of competition, Frank W. Traeger, Jr. of Montclair, a member of Roseland Community Gun Club, shot his way on May 14 to his second New Jersey State Championship with a per fect score of 100 targets at the Locust Grove Gun Club in Union County. Mr. Traeger established two more records in being the only man who has won a state skeet championship in two suc cessive years, and the only man to win a state championship with 100 straight. He used Kleanbore Nitro Club Skeet Loads. This is the sort of shooting sportsmen talk about. Ed Garland of Bayonne and L. Delmonico of Madison were runners-up with 99 x 100. Garland won the shoot-off, 24 x 25, shooting Kleanbore Nitro Club Shells. W. P. Conway of Madison won fourth place, 96 x 100, shooting a Remington "Sportsman" gun and Kleanbore Shur Shot Skeet Loads. Our congratulations to all of these gentlemen. We are proud of the tribute these champions pay us in using our guns and ammunition, and proud also that Remington Kleanbore shells and Remington guns are making it possible for these expert skeet shots to establish new records. THE "SPORTSMAN" The Remington "Sportsman" is the finest skeet gun made. It is perfectly balanced, swings lightning fast, and bam- bams two shots with unbelievable rapidity. It combines in one gun all the essentials for perfect shooting in this new and exacting sport. And the shell is as important as the gun in this popular red-blooded, hammer- and- tongs shooting game. Remington pioneered and developed skeet loads. Kleanbore Nitro Club Skeet Loads were the first on the market, and their superior quality has maintained undisputed leadership. Kleanbore Shur Shot Skeet Loads have made a whirlwind record of championships won. They are fast, snappy, dependable, and easy on the pocketbook. Send today for booklets.

Skins get just as tired of it all as bodies, especially when "it all'1 includes such things as Chicago's hard water, winds, and the soot from hundreds of locomotives which chuff into our midst every day. At 900 North Michigan, in their cool court salon, the Dor- othy Gray attendants stir up those lazy skin cells with their unique circulation treatment and creams as cool and fresh smelling as a spring garden. On a hot summer day when you don't feel like getting all "smeary" you will find these brisk treat' ments a revelation. They leave you with a nice shining clean feeling and your chin feels so firm and smooth you'll go along holding your head up proudly to face the world with a new joy. Here too is a new Color Diagnosis room where your skin is studied and many colored fabrics are tried against your face to arrive at just the right tones in makeup for your type, as well as the colors you should wear to bring out the best in you. It's an intensely interesting session, this color diagnosis one, and the advice is offered without benefit of treatment if you wish. They are glad to have you drop in to discuss fabrics and makeup with their expert whether or not you wish to indulge in a treatment or preparations. And here, too, is Delgard, one of the best hairdressers of the town, so you can be thoroughly re-groomed. The new beauty shops at Mandel Brothers are huge and busy but are so decorated and divided into separate parts that an air of serenity and cheerful welcome pervades the fifth floor which they occupy. They are delightfully modern and complete with grand treatments in every division. You get the famous Ogilvie treat' ments in the hair division and then Arnold Fax gives or supervises your hairdress in a masterly manner. He is a truly individual hair' dresser, suiting your haircut or hairdress to your type and doing it in a smart, non-freakish way so that you can really handle it yourself and not have to dash to the hairdresser every day you want to look your best. The face treatments are Madame Jacquet's noted ones and beauti fully refreshing as well as permanently bene ficial. In the Body Contour shops you can be molded down to your ideal figure in a remarkably short time, pleasantly and health' fully withal. And, their chiropodist is a marvel — gentle but swift and skilled in fix' ing up tired and aching feet so that you'll posi' tively dance about the Fair grounds instead of dragging grimly along. You have prob' ably been impressed by the beautifully simple facade and the refresh' RESTRAINED MODERNISM DISTINGUISHES ing green garden of the MANDEL'S BEAUTY SHOPS.

In its spacious and lovely interior you can float from floor to floor for as complete a beauty building program as you desire. Begin at the third floor with a visit to the cabinet bath rooms and surrender to the manipulations of as grand a Swedish masseuse as you'll find this side of the ocean. On this floor too is the office of Dr. Desjardins, also one of the best chiro podists in town, and a name to remember whenever you have Fair- tired feet. Even when they don't ache but are simply tired it's a splendid idea to have a stimulating massage and a pedicure to dress them up, especially if you are doing much swimming or beach loung ing this summer. Then descend to the facial and hair treatment rooms. The Rubinstein face treatments are of course justly famous all over the world and you'll especially enjoy the lovely new Herbal Mask treatment, which isn't sticky and heavy at all but a smooth almost liquid mask which smells as crisp and springy as an old'fashioned garden. It's nourishing as well as firming, and tautens the sagging lines while it soothes dry and burned skins and refines the pores magnificently. And on your way out don't forget to stop for a look at the lovely new summer makeup preparations — the Cote d'Azur Foundation cream and Gypsy Tan powder. These are not the deep negroid tones of a few summers past but give a nice warm glow to the skin which is just right for bright skies and summer frocks. Failing a trip to Paris and a visit to the great Antoine you can do just as well at Saks-Fifth Avenue, where Antoine has his Pierre and other Antoine-trained men to give you a hairdress as chic as anything you can get in Paris. And the new Antoine face treatments are a joy. They are built on his sculpture-theory just as his hairdresses are, reaching down to the fundamental structure of your face and molding it to a clear-cut firmness and fresh, smart beauty. The preparations are delicious in their texture and fragrance and very smart too in their distinguished containers — something impressive to take back home if you are a visitor. At Saks, too, you can get the splendid Ogilvie hair treatments — not a bad idea when you are over-tired, for they are restful and stimulating and hair needs attention at this time, for fatigue in body or spirit is promptly reflected in the condition of your hair. ^Presenting Unusual and Exclusive Styles in BATHING and BEACH APPAREL as observed at leading resorts here and abroad Illustrated: In the foreground, the new Bathing Shirt with very narrow stripe — an exclusive Capper & Capper feature — $3.

DEAN FISKE COFFIN OF DETROIT HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED. 'ROUND THE TOWN IN 1883 As Per the Columnists (Begin on page 33) entered in the recent championship bout be tween Chicago and Milwaukee teams. The sports bet $100 on each match; side-money besides. The lads had to sneak out to Schermer- ville, account of this silly police prejudice. "In the sixth inning of the fifth fight," reads an account, "the Chicago black'red drove his spear through the back of the Milwaukee white pyle. Though the latter was disabled his handler refused to withdraw him and he was pecked and spurred until he died in the pit." This was a good square match, and we resent people saying that cock'fighting is immoral. The new driving park in Hyde Park is an assured success. Mar shall Field, N. K. Fairbank, John Dupee, Samuel Allerton and Murry Nelson have each given $5,000. Other contributors are A. B. Meeker, Martin A. Ryerson, H. M. Wilmarth and Sidney Kent.

At a fashionable wedding on the west side, we understand the happy pair received not only the usual silverware, etc., but complete sets of the English classics, and two beautiful family bibles. How rich I would feel! The Farragut boat club german at Boumique's was a great success. Lasted till 1 a.m. The Grecian bend is out of style. All Things Considered: To breakfast with that great personage, Gen. Tom Thumb; listened to his philosophy for well upon an hour. Seldom have we met a more delightful egotist — barring ourself. Gen. Thumb wears a close clipped moustache; his hair is a trifle thin about the temples and slightly tinged with grey. He sports a satin smoking jacket and a seal'skin vest. We asked who was the greatest man he had ever seen. Tactfully he replied, "I have seen them all, you know. I have been petted by royalty; was presented to Queen Victoria in 1844." In the same breath he said he was not forty years old. In our mean realistic way, we figured, subtracting 1844 from 1883, the general must have been a babe in arms when presented to royalty. Or is our mathematics wrong? Our next lecture at Central Music Hall will be on The Younger Generation. We shall combat the idea that the youth of today is any worse than that of 1863.

Heard and Seen : Publicly, we predicted the election of Judge Eugene Cary over Carter Harrison for mayor, but privately we knew all the time that "our Carter11 would win. We foresaw the defeat of R. T. Crane in the republican primaries, remember! We heard several sermons intended to crush Third-Term Harrison, but the hottest was that of Dr. John Henry Barrows, saying that "compared with the administration of Chicago a Bridgeport smell is like rose water." (Bet the doc never smelled it.) Carter didn't mind. He called the parsons "bigoted and narrow-minded partisans who knew as little of what they speak as Balaam's ass of Hebrew." We had a platform seat at the big anti-Harrison rally in Battery D among the notables, like Marshall Field, John V. Farwell, and Emory Storrs. Big speeches, big enthusiasm! John Wentworth's speech was a surprise. He attacked the whisky folks; "the most dan gerous element that threatens our liberty," roared he. Seems like we remember "Long John" at several bars a few years ago, standing treat. Well, 10,000 was a small plurality, but enough. There was a grand scene when the Lyon & Healy band serenaded Carter in front of the Ashland avenue mansion. We were standing right by him when he shouted to the crowd, "I shall deliver no funeral oration for my enemies. One waits until the dead are well clothed before one delivers the oration." The salute of 100 guns on the lake front was an impressive and well-deserved tribute. Many happy re-terms, Carter! Line-o'-Type or Two. Melville Stone wrote us this while we were at the Hot Springs: "Chicago has excitement enough just now for three ordinary cities. With the election, the billiard tournament, attractions at a dozen theatres, two or three murder trials, corners in grain and sand-bagging matinees at all hours. ... No wonder the boys get lonesome and want to leave the farms."

It had gone to standard size, and even beyond that, for it was now twelve columns wide. The screamer-headlined story about the Symphony was by Karleton Hackett. Other first page features were Riq's "From Pillar to Post" column, with the contributions printed in contrasting colors (the joke from Mr. Hoover being in gilt ink) ; two columns of book reviews by Llewellyn Jones, with nude illustrations; facsimile telegrams of con gratulations from the editors of all the other Chicago papers; and scattered news stories. The news stories announced that Congress today had passed a three-day week, with a minimum wage scale of $50 a day; that U. S.

No doubt they are to mark the centenary of his birth. Tragic Overture, Op. 81. Played by the B. B. C. Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Adrian Boult and recorded in Europe, was composed in 1880. Its interlaced themes of struggle and conquest are elaborate and complicated, and it seems to rise above the classifica' tion, overture. It is a very satisfactory recording. Elena Gerhardt, Mez^O'Soprano, displays rare delicacy and artistry in handling the delightful Brahms numbers. There are two records containing seven songs and the superb accompaniment is supplied by Coenraad V. Bos. They were recorded in Europe. No. 7793 (three songs) — "Hachtigall (The Nightingale), Standchen (Serenade) and Feldeinsam\eit (In Summer Fields); No. 7795 (four songs) — Wie Komm lch Denn Zur Tur Herein (And If I Come Unto Your Door), Mein Madel Hat '7<len Rosenmund (My Maiden Has a Mouth of Red), Feinsliebchen, Du Sollst Mir Hicht Barfuss GeKn (My Darling Shall Never With Bare Feet Go) and Erlaube Mir, Feinsliebchen (Allow Me).

So much goes into the perfectly rounded, well dressed look that is not only the outer garment. Corsets must be nicely adjusted, bras' sieres are of paramount importance. Even the small content of Inv gerie should have the proper lines and fittings; stockings can make or mar the effect. And then there is the makeup. Today, it doesn't show in any artificiality of effect. Naturalness is the byword, but how to do that happily is an art in itself. A representative of Helena Rubinstein discusses this subject, with many helpful suggestions, and the mannequins at the fashion shows, whose make'up and coiffures are styled for each type at the Rubinstein salon, show how these ideas are beautifully accomplished. All these points are taken up in detail in the course of my fashion shows — a course in good dressing, they might be termed. SHOPS ABOUT TOWN Notes for Visitors By The Chicagoenne CHICAGOANS proper, and improper, are accustomed to the many services they can eke out of our large shops but even they will be surprised by the things a couple of the new Service Bureaus will do for visitors and natives. In the third floor waiting room of Mandel Brothers is the Sightseers' Service with an under' standing hostess in charge who is more helpfully hospitable than many a hostess we've had. The Bureau will buy tickets for theatres and any other amusement, arrange transportation and buy your tickets, attend to the parking of dogs or children or cars, arrange parties, tell you where to eat and what to do in town, how to get anywhere, and nevair, nevair do they get impatient or bored. They welcome difficult assign' ments just to show how they can rise to any occasion. To their many services Marshall Field's have added a new Visitors' Bureau on the first floor just for the benefit of Fair visitors. Here you can obtain a guide to show you through the store or a shopper to help you make your purchases. They even have interpreters to take care of your foreign visitors and are willing and able to tackle any language. Just across the aisle is the Personal Service Bureau spruced up and augmented in its force so that they can solve practically any The Chicagoan WOLFF S/ COOLEY JANE FAUNTZ, OF OLYMPIC TEAM FAME, CHOOSES A CRINKLED RUBBER SUIT, BACKLESS TO THE WAIST.

BY MARSHALL FIELD. problem from looking up a pal from home now living in town, or where to have your clothes cleaned or laundry done, and finding Aunt Tillie whom you lost somewhere in the store. They take mes' sages and notes and ladle out all sorts of information and help. Then there's the third floor with its writing rooms, theatre and travel ticket offices, lost and found, and a first aid room as well as a room with cribs for children. Don't overlook the fourth floor playroom cither, where you can safely leave Mary Jane or Peter for hours of happy playing on the slides, bouncing horses, block and hammering tables, under the watchful eye of an attendant. And then to your shopping. If you are look' ing about for a gift, say for your hostess or something to take back home, or want a wedding gift which will set the groom as well as the bride agog, you will have a lot of fun at Von Lengerke and Antoine, where you can browse and browse among everything that's smart and amusing in drinking equipment. Here and at Mandel's Tavern Shop you will find thirst'quenching items of every description from solid silver goblets or tankards to the plain but funny Hinky Dink schooner. For something really exquisite in a gift for the home trot right down to Watson and Boaler's new shop of silver and appointments. This famous firm has done over its first and second floor showrooms to accommodate a magnificent collection of fine appointments in old world silver — rare old pieces for dining rooms, antique trays and desk appointments, lovely pieces of occasional furni' ture — things that will distinguish any home. Have you seen those beauteous serving and decorative pieces of handwrought aluminum which we told you about a few months ago? They are popping up in smart shops all over town, and now the Wendell August Forge, which fashions them, appears on the scene with some new pieces for porch, terrace or garden. This aluminum has a lovely soft sheen, not at all like our pots and pans, and has truly artistic designs on its surface. For the garden they have attractive little trays fastened to a handle which has a spike at one end so that it can be planted anywhere you decide to plant yourself and a cool drink. There are tables and chairs too in a lattice design of strips of aluminum, very solid and amazingly com' fortable, lightly moved about and not marred by any freaks of the • TAXI OVER FREE FROM ANY POINT IN THE LOOP TO THIS STORE • FREE PARKING SERVICE AT OUR DOOR • OPEN EVERY MONDAY AND SATURDAY EVENING UNTIL 10 O'CLOCK You may arrive at practically any continental destination most rapidly by mak ing the transatlantic trip on the BREMEN or EUROPA, collaborating in Lloyd Express with the de luxe COLUMBUS and with the Lloyd Cabin Liners BERLIN, STUTTGART, STEUBEN.

Some of these pieces are on display and you can order any design you choose through Hipp and Coburn or Marshall Field. An interesting item for those of you who have been struggling with lipstick stains on handkerchiefs and napkins is a new lipstick stain remover called Lix and shown at the toilet goods counters of nearly all the good shops. It is just rubbed on the spot over a little circle of felt (you get a supply of these with each bottle) and the most stubborn stain disappears. This is manufactured by the same people who are producing Tattoo lipsticks which you should see too. Tattoo is one of those soft, luscious lipsticks but not the least bit greasy and sticks through anything. With it all it isn't the least bit pasty but gives a nice translucent effect, very natural and glowing. The shades blend nicely with skin tones, too, you will find and the Tattoo display gives you a chance to test the different shades against your skin before you buy. A good old friend appears in a new guise which is delightfully practical and convenient. The new Odorono compact is as easy to carry about as any powder compact and checks perspiration effectively without irritating the skin or harming clothes. This year's summer beauty kits are gayer than ever, and Helena Rubinstein's bright striped bag with its convenient pockets for the essential preparations is one of the smartest I have seen. Besides being handsome and easily packable it is surprisingly complete with generous tubes of Bleaching Cream, Astringent Tonic, Sunproof Beauty Lotion, a soothing and flattering foundation lotion, Deodorant Talcum in the exquisite Waterlily fragrance, Sunburn Oil, Waterproof Rouge en Creme, and the glowing new Gypsy Tan Sunproof Powder. You'll want one for yourself and they make charming gifts. The Thomas' Scalp Specialists who have been rescuing masculine heads from impending baldness for years, now have a new salon for women at 844 Rush Street. Their treatments are stimulating and nourishing, and heaven knows we women need good hair treatments during a summer of exposure to dust, drying sun and winds.

CINEMA BETWEEN TIMES Wherein the Fair Takes Its Toll By William R. Weaver YOUR faithful observer pleads guilty to gross neglect of ten or fifteen doubtlessly meritorious motion pictures of the month and places the blame squarely upon the shoulders of the gen' tlemen who advanced the opening of A Century of Progress Inter national Exposition and, without so much as a conference upon the matter, thereby advanced by an equivalent number of days and nights the publication date of The Chicagoan World's Fair Boo\, lacking which, as everybody knows, the festivities on the lakefront should have been vain and empty proceedings indeed. Of course it was all very much worthwhile, and probably it will not happen again for another fifty or hundred years, so I beg forgiveness with something less than a breaking heart and hasten to the items I did manage to gather. I should start, I think, with This ~Hyxde World, an instructive and informative study of nudism inspected in company with Artist Nat Karson, back from Gotham on one of his too rare visits, whose draw- ing conceived on the ground adorns this page. Instructive and informative describe the picture. I don't like to disappoint anyone to whom livelier adjectives would appeal more strongly, but the truth should not keep anyone from seeing precisely how American, French and German nudists spend their week-ends. These nations, by the way, are brothers and sisters under the clothes. Reunion in Vienna, I am happy to say, surpasses expectations in every department. John Barrymore, Diana Wynyard and Frank Morgan are priceless in it and the censors had the epochal good sense to permit its exhibition intact. If you see but one picture this summer, this is the one to see. The other productions sandwiched in between press deadlines and bedtimes may be grouped for convenience. International House is a screamingly funny comedy featuring everybody from Peggy Hopkins Joyce to Burns and Allen. ...

THE HARVEY WAY An Old Institution in a New Setting {Begin on page 35) the steward aside, he asked him what was wrong. "Oh, that man's a crank," the steward explained. "There is no pleasing him." "But our business is to please cranks," replied Mr. Harvey. "Anyone can please a gentleman." This incident is quoted frequently by the older Harvey employes when younger heads are inclined to be impatient with a chronic grumbler. Every complaint by a customer is traced to its origin, and a report of the investigation is made to the head of the business. When a business acquaintance told me he had eaten regularly at Harvey's Union Station Restaurant, several blocks from his office, since 1925, I accepted his statement with own reservations. Investigation, however, proved that he is only one of a considerable number. When you visit the Enchanted Island at the Century of Progress, you will find a most unique children's restaurant bearing the title, "Harvey Toy Town Tavern," a virtual fairyland for children, in which the decorations, all faithful reproductions from Grimm's, Anderson's, and other fairy tales, move and dance about. Tony Sarg was engaged to create these effects. When you visit the Toy Town Tavern you will be just as enthusiastic about it as the chil dren are. And to find such delightful food on the grounds of a Fair is to know beyond doubt that it's a century of progress! TUDOR IN WISCONSIN An Inspiring American Residence (Begin on page 49) which the other pieces in the room, although of a little later date, blend harmoniously. A concession to present- day living is a card table and chairs placed delightfully in the bay of the great "oriel" window. A later century has furnished the inspiration for the dining-room, which is decorated according to the best traditions of that most grace ful and lovely period — the Georgian. Mellow ivory panelled walls, the exquisitely simple fireplace with the portrait, a colorful antique Bactieri rug, the crystal chandelier, the flower-painted English screen, and antique gold taffeta curtains at the windows create an atmosphere of unusual beauty and charm. The furniture consists of eighteenth century pieces, the chairs being upholstered in old brocade. The doors at the left, seen in the accompanying illustration, are ornamented with oval framed bouquets painted on glass, and open into an oval breakfast room, furnished with an antique game table and early Sheraton chairs. In the book-room, the walls are panelled in personally selected matched white California pine which has been left in its natural color and finish, and with which highly patterned glased chintz curtains in shades of golden brown and white contrast effectively. The easy chairs, the reading-table of charming English type, with its reading- lamp, books, and a fireplace, not shown in the illustration, make the book-room a place where you feel tempted to linger for a while and take your ease. The decorator was Elizabeth Doolittle, member of the American Institute of Interior Decorators. \Addenda \T7ELL known interior decorators from all parts of the country will assemble in Chicago from June 19-25 to attend the Second DOROTHY GRAY^WtM^ SALON IN CHICAGO?

A LAKE FOR EVERYONE Minnesota's Ten Thousand (Begin on page 29) the most popular are Ruffy, Buckboard, Nesseth, Lost, LaSalle, Moose and Bear Creeks near Itasca Park; or the Straight River, the Indian and Kabekona Creeks near Park Rapids. Ask any Minnesotan, however, for trout streams and the answer invariably is the North Shore Drive, where numberless trout streams empty into Lake Superior, with Gooseberry, Baptism, • Manitou, Cascade, Temperance and the Arrowhead the most prominent. If lake trout is the piece de resistance, the choice is limited to the lakes flowing north toward the Hudson Bay, located in the Superior National Forest, Rainy Lake and Lake of the Woods.

About the coolest thing one can do in a hurry is to book passage on the North American or South American, lake cruisers with an ocean atmos phere, and honestly swell ships. Their four day and seven day cruises are about the most refreshing brief interludes you can snatch out of a city summer. Mackinac is always pleasant, with its lovely harbor, the old stone fort, and the extremely pleasant Grand Hotel; the shining beach and crystalline water, the carriages and bicycles lending a charming air to the scene; and all the historic spots about the island which are so close to our own history, bound up as they are with Father Marquette and LaSalle, the War of 1812 and the Indian wars, — and about it all a clear and exhilarating air, a pleasant refuge from both hay fever and automobiles. The last two items take a mighty jump from Lake Louise to Costa Rica. On July 28th the famous Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies leave Lake Louise for their 1933 jaunt. The trip this year has been planned over several interesting trails, over an old Indian trail, climbing to spectacular Dolomite Pass, some 8,200 feet in altitude, with a tremendous view from Dolomite Peak, and then to camp at Isabella Lake, across the Siffleur River and approaching Pipestone Pass, then another old Indian trail past the beautiful high lakes and hanging glaciers to Fish Lakes. Costa Rica comes into today's picture with the story of the new short cruises offered by the Grace Line, which take busy people away from home for just twenty-two days but give a very generous dash of foreign atmosphere and ocean air in that time. The itinerary of this Costa Rica cruise includes visits to Cartagena and Colombia in South America, the Canal Zone cities, a trip through the Canal and two delightful days in Costa Rica. TRAVELING AT NIGHT Here's Opening You'll Have a Nice Time By Patrick McHugh WRITING about openings that took place several weeks ago gives us an excellent idea of how Dr. Boyden feels when he has to knock off wordage about some turkey that he covered while an earlier issue of this journal was still on the presses — the old month late stuff.

Wagstaff & Company Landscape Architects and Contractors EVANSTON, ILLINOIS CHICAGO The Hangar was done by decorator John Brunton of East Coast fame. It resembles an aerodrome, with huge steel girders and a general aero nautic atmosphere. The west wall, fashioned as the aircraft entrance, is covered by a massive drop, brilliantly painted and lighted with heavier-than-air and lighter-than-air machines in a bright sky, back grounded by the Fair Grounds panorama. In the band shell on the south side of the room Johnny Hamp and his orchestra play. The entertainment is completely metropolitan. Charles Kaley directs the evening's program; June MacCloy croons low and huskily and very clearly; Lee Barton Evans, of Vanities fame, sings (Old Man River, in blackface, is his best number); Joresco and Lydia rumba and tango; Nina Laughlin, formerly of Ta\e a Chance, dances, so does Billy Sevrin; and the sister act is the lovely, blonde Aber twins recently of Stri\e Me Pinli. The stiff, formal old dining room, north off the main lobby of the Congress, is now the Hawaiian Room. There is a fresh, cool, benign atmosphere about this pastel-green room with its foliage and flowers and pastel-hued light bulbs inside balloons. Leo Reisman and his orchestra, in town from a two and one-half year's stand at the Central Park Casino, play. The Reisman band has long been our favorite orchestra, long before they began playing 7s[ight and Day. Gypsy Markoff sings and plays her piano-accordion. And the bland Charlie Krempp, manager of dining rooms, spends his time between the Urban Room and the propitious Hawaiian Room making his guests feel as though they'd been there forever. The new Terrace Garden in the Morrison Hotel is no longer the stadium it used to be. Now it is a beautiful, tropical garden with palm trees, coconuts and color — a transplanted Hawaii. Alen of Hollywood designed the room. Dick Ware, dap per and minute song-and- dance man, is master of ceremonies. The ten Ainsley Lambert dancers are far better groomed and trained than the lines of most Broadway shows. Loma Ruth and Connie Bee do some fancy forms of dancing; Roy, Rita and Roule are an exceptional dance trio fresh from the Kit-Kat Club, London; and Lula Bates, large and full-voiced, sings true indigo songs. Don Irwin and his orchestra with Janet Miley and Eddie Scope, are in the band shell. There has been a renascence at the Stevens Hotel, too. The new Boulevard Room, overlooking the Avenue, Grant Park and the north entrance to the Fair Grounds, used to be the main dining room. Now it is a grand, cool supper room, with murals and tall mirrors set in gold. It is divided into two levels so that guests on both sides of the room may enjoy the view through the tall windows. A new wooden dance floor and a gay, colored canopy adds to the atractive arrangement. Charlie Agnew and his orchestra supply the music. There is another delightful new night spot on the Fair Grounds, The Spanish Pavilion Cafe. E. J. Stevens is man aging this colorful dine and dance place. It is at 24th St. on the Midway, next to the Oriental Village, and accommodates one thou sand guests. The rich Spanish tapestries, paintings, objects of art and furnishings are from the royal palace in Madrid. A Spanish band, well known to radio listeners, renders rumbas, tangos and other Castilian tunes. There are also ten acts of real Spanish entertainment. The Hi-Hat Club is still one of pleasant night spots in Town. SPEND A NIGHT IN SPAIN! I 1 '; i iia!

THE OCCASION ARRIVES Rise and Serve By The Hostess WHAT the city needs this summer is hostesses who can take it. The kind of hostess who won't drop the phone in palsy when her husband calls to announce that good old Wallace from the class of '16 just dropped in on his way to the Fair, and he and the family are coming out for the week-end; who won't call for the eau de cologne when young Jane asks half a dozen sorority sisters to spend a week or so; who can face telegraph boys without flinching; and who can welcome with unruffled calm a crew of gadabouts drop ping in on their way home from a lot of beer to brighten her late evening hours and rifle her refrigerator. When a wire announces an impending house guest or more or when you want to give a really lovely party for young Jane the number to reach for is Superior 0900. The beautiful old house of Joseph Biggs on East Huron Street shelters treasures of appointments for every sort of an affair, from the chic informal party to the most brilliant wedding. The Biggs' establishment handles every detail of entertainment, furnishing appointments if necessary, servants, and quite divine food and decorations. Another caterer in high favor with givers of good parties is Gaper who handles any affair with ease and also has a grand list of special ties ready for delivery, to dress up your own little dinners and suppers. Their ice cream, little cakes, and special cooked dishes will add a Sherry-like flair to any function, formal or informal. Your house guests may add an inch or two dur ing their stay but they will be completely happy about it if their breakfast trays flourish a true French brioche or croissant, and if they are greeted at lunch with those heavenly crisp French breads and rolls. All this can be accomplished even though you have just a Bridget in the kitchen, through the new and charming little La Parisienne at 127 East Oak. Now that everyone is getting that way about corn beef hash for bright supper parties another item is crossed off the work list. You can get it all crisp and brown, packed in conveni ent round ice cream containers, at Field's tea rooms. Warm it up and serve with tartar sauce and eggs and there you are, a smart hostess with no trouble a-tall. Don't overlook Field's Colonial Food Shop up here either, with an array of delicacies that will make you gloat proudly over your emergency shelf. Here, besides hundreds of other things, are Fortnum and Mason's marvellous foods which you can't get anywhere else in Chicago. JACQUES FRENCH RESTAURANT ONE HALF BLOCK S. E. of DRAKE HOTEL 180 E.
