A Folio of IVorlds Fair Pictures by A. George Miller : v.% July, 1933 Price 25 Cents V1' Ask them both- - - THE MAN WHO HAS OWNED ONE SIX YEARS THE MAN WHO HAS OWNED ONE SIX MONTHS We know of no better way for you to test Packard superiority than to "ask the man who owns one." First, talk to men whose Packards are rolling into their sixth or seventh year. They can tell you about Packard's long life. And the smart appearance of their cars will prove to you that a Packard, whatever its age, is always a car you can be proud to be seen in. What Packard has done in 1933 Next, ask the man who bought his Packard this year. He can tell you that, with its new 1933 models, Packard has far outstripped the fine car field. Then ask your Packard dealer to let you drive one of these new Packards. Discover steering so easy it is almost automatic. Sink into cushions contoured by an orthopedic expert. Listen to a motor that even at top speeds is barely audible. A Car lhat's adaptable to you Discover a car adaptable to your own requirements. A car whose brake-pedal pressure, ventilation, and shock absorber resilience can all be adjusted to suit you. Then remember that the new Packards last longer even than their famous pred ecessors, and cost less to operate. 600,000 miles of testing at the Packard Proving Grounds during 1932 have proved that. A clutch was operating perfectly after 125,000 contacts in traffic. A trans mission showed no appreciable wear after 50,000 miles. A new lubricating system has doubled the life of motor parts — and cut repair costs in half. Why not become a "man who owns one" ? Drive your old car to your Packard dealer's today. Your present car will probably cover the down payment on a new Packard. The balance can be spread over many months.

Circumstances have been perfect. The weather bureau has furnished faultless climatic conditions. Washington has imparted to the citizenry that confidence in tomorrow which is the better part of today's spending. Europe has kenneled its war dogs. Stock exchange and board of trade have behaved as though they, too, had been struck by that ray from good old Arcturus. The gods have given the Fair all of the breaks. So have the newspapers, the magazines, the book publishers, the broad casters, a comfortable majority of the paying customers. It must be a pretty good Fair. Certainly it is a handsome one. Regrettably, although perhaps fortunately, it is still a very mysterious one. Finding out anything about it continues to be, at this late date, a major problem in advanced journalism. Learning today what is going to happen tomorrow rates with picking winners at Arlington. We have chosen to believe, being emphatically pro-Fair before and since the launching of the now famous Mayer-Miller series of illus trated articles last November, that the seeming lack of routine infor mation on the part of staff employees and the evident satisfaction of all hands with this condition are part and parcel of a sagely conceived policy of whetting interest, nourishing curiosity, building suspense, profiting by the ancient law of discovery and surprise. We still believe it, but the strain is beginning to tell. We are beginning to feel, too, that the policy, if it is a policy, has produced just about all of profit that it should be expected to yield. We think it is about time for one or more of the gentlemen behind the scenes to step out in plain view of the customers and take a bow. The single essential of a good show that visitors to the Fair seek in vain is the human element. Self-effacement had its points in the beginning, when the Exposition was a highly speculative quantity and the buyers few, but that is over. So is the period when eye-Ailing splendor and sheer news interest guaranteed the box office. The time has come for a single individual to take the spotlight, talk, parade a little, admit responsibility for the good, the bad and the indifferent, personalize the exposition, give it character, animate it with the breath of life. The architecture and the illumination have carried the burden about as long as they should be expected to. The novelty is wearing off and the critical chorus is tuning up in the back room. A strong personality prominently presented, it seems to us, would be worth more to the bond holders just now than any other obtainable attraction. The Lay Press "\ VAGARIES of the daily press are of inevitable interest to the man in the street. Chicago is blessed, if you will, with a partic ularly quixotic journalism. Only in this city could be found a news paper, The Evening American, sales-hungry enough to headline, as the Fair opened, a sensationally phrased recital of the city's crime record from Torrio to day before yesterday. Only here could the solitary tabloid, The Daily Times, be found content to build its suc cess slowly, substantially, on a text content far cleaner than most of the standard size evening newspapers in America. Chicago newspapers follow no rule. The Chicago Tribune, having straddled the presidential issue doggedly, is torn between Carey Orr's anti-administration cartoons, John Boettiger's pro-Roosevelt dispatches from Washington and assorted editorial utterances brilliantly saying everything and nothing. Four years is a long time to straddle, and eight is twice as long, but The Tribune is The Tribune. How differ ent the performance of The Daily J<[ews, once very similarly regarded, staunchest Hoover advocate in the evening newspaper field and now, frankly convinced, printing on its front page, under the signature of Col. Frank Knox, publisher, some of the finest cabled reports emanat ing from the London conference. It takes all kinds of people to make up a world, and all kinds of newspapers to please them, but none of the world's peoples doing the Fair need have their home town paper forwarded. Chicago has all kinds. Fall Idyl HpHE passage of the heavyweight boxing championship from the ¦*~ dubious custody of Jack Sharkey to the somewhat more logical possession of Primo Camera induces to a revival of interest in the subject. The probable result is foreseen by the faithful as a match wherein the new champion will meet Max Baer in Soldier Field or thereabouts some pleasant evening this fall and surrender the title in exchange for a good lacing and the biggest gate since the late Tex Rickard bossed such matters. Mr. Baer is the first young man of intelligence and personality to take the heavyweight trail since Gene Tunney's retirement. He can do the sport a lot of good, as the phrase goes, and the sport is in need of it. Planned or not, the Sharkey-to-Carnera-to-Baer sequence is a double play to think about. Mr. Sharkey was a very bad advertisement. Skill Vs. Chance /^\UR devotion to sports, inconstant at best, has never happened to ^^ include allegiance to the fleet greyhound. Our equine idols at Arlington adequately satisfy our interest in the improvement of thor oughbreds. Nevertheless, the recent court hearings on the matter of legalizing or de-legaliring dog racing in these parts have raised a point that challenges the attention of every good minimum bettor and true. At the time when we lost track of the case, abandoning it in what used to be called high dudgeon, a judicial opinion had recorded the classic finding that the presence of a jockey, in the case of horse racing, constituted an element of skill, whereas the absence of a jockey, in the case of dog racing, reduced the matter of wagering to the presumably low level of common gambling. Therefore, the point seemed to be, dog racing would not be permitted in Illinois. No doubt the learned judge is right about it, at least as right as the law books, but we witnessed the Fischer-Meade scrap in the Kentucky Derby and our money was on Head Play's nose. We remem ber, too, the afternoon at Hawthorne last summer when Indian Run ner, lately victor over Gallant Sir and all comers, all but sat down under the subsequently barred Charlie Allen to keep from winning over a bunch of platers at favorite odds. Element of skill, eh? Gam bling, eh? The gentlemen presenting the case for the dog tracks will do well to lay it before a judge who bets the ponies. They can't lose. Announcement TT is our privilege to present, on page 34 of this issue, two polo sketches by Mr. R. H. Palenske, and on page 35, an article by Mr. Jack McDonald that will be of interest to all lovers of fine horses. Plans maturing without unforeseen complication (it was Mr. McDon ald's misfortune to stop a polo ball unexpectedly and with dire result on the eve of press deadline for this issue), Messrs. Palenske and McDonald will faithfully attend hereafter to the reporting, by sketch and printed word, of sports events in the Chicago area for readers of The Chicagoan. C -^ "EENIE-MEENIE-MINIE-MOI" The Chicagoa Chicagoana The Fair Grounds and the Town and Back to the Fair Grounds Conducted by Donald C a mpbell P l a x t THOSE members of another generation than ours who had the privilege of at tending the Columbian Exposition in '93 were great souvenir collectors. Perhaps all Fair visitors are great souvenir collectors — something to remember you by, you Fair, you! And those who were in the Rush of '93 were forever bringing forth and display ing their souvenirs, and regaling their house guests with tales of the wonders viewed on the Fair Grounds in those memorable closing days of the last century. We had been wondering if those people who attend A Century of Progress Exposition would go thou and do likewise. We thought they undoubtedly would, which is why The Chicagoan pub lished its World's Fair Book. And, because the first edition is selling so fast, our supposi tion that all Fair visitors are great souvenir collectors seems to stand. Beside the canes and the hundred and one other souvenirs that are hawked on and about the Fair Grounds, there is a rather unusual volume entitled (probably for want of a better one) Thrills of Our Visits to Chicago's 1933 Fair. A Mr. Macnair of Evanston designed it. It's a combination album and memory- book with pockets and pages for all sorts of things from autographs of Buddy Rogers to buttons from the Italian flyers' uniforms. Probably the next generation, from Maine to California, from Florida to Washington (or is it Oregon?) and vice versa will see a lot of these Thrills books. We haven't our copy yet, and if we ever happen to get one we shall leave the pages completely blank — to be filled in, perhaps, a decade from now when the whole thing is all pretty hazy. Those Sarg Marionettes \ LTHOUGH we may be trespassing on the ***¦ preserves of Fair Grounds Mayer (known to his intimates as "F. G."), we cannot re frain from disclosing an item of some interest, if of little importance, concerning the Great Exhibition of Arts & Industry, as the doings on the lakefront are formally titled. The visitors at the A £•? P Carnival, as Col. Mayer will probably tell you, have been run ning well into a great many figures. There are four things that lure human beings — love, fame, riches, and something for nothing. Riches and something for nothing are some what similar, although in the latter category you take it out in goods, or trade. The A 6=? P Carnival is giving away all sorts of sitting and comfort and shade and entertainment, and it is doing it very nicely. This is what brings Fair visitors, and fair visitors, to the foot of 23rd Street, where they sit for hours on end, or for hours together. But what keeps them there is the marion ettes. And this is our story. The marionettes, which pack the Carnival's amphitheatre six o^ eight times a day, are called the "A 6-? P Marionettes designed by Tony Sarg." Why not "Tony Sarg's marionettes"? Because, as Tony told the A & P, Tony had long since sold the rights to the name "Tony Sarg's marionettes" to somebody else. Another thing the A 6? P found out is that the "A & P marionettes designed by Tony Sarg" are not, for the most part, designed by Tony Sarg. Tony gets all the laurels, as the vest gets all the gravy, but Tony's assistants, like the coat and pants, do all the work. The assist ants are a talented crew, as every puppeteer must be. Not only do they design (under Tony's eye) and manufacture the puppets (out of wood, aluminum, papier mache, plastic wood, brass, steel, rubber — everything), but they operate the figures. Operating marion ettes is the most impossible job — just to look at it — in the world. On the A & P Carnival stage, there are sometimes as many as seven figures performing. This means that up above the stage there are seven operators, every one of them with ten strings attached to his ten fingers. And the whole business has to be coordinated. A nimble mind, ten nimble fin gers and a genius for rhythm are a few of the requisites for puppeteers. The A & P puppeteers are seven in num ber. No. 1 man is Bill (he calls himself Bil) Baird, who has a book on marionettes coming out in the fall and who is now at work on a marionette of President Roosevelt — which His Nibs will be invited to shake hands with when he comes to the Fair; and the others are Kris Ursin, who is a new man since the Nor wegian cadet ship arrived at the Fair, Rufe Rose, George Cottle, Kenneth Bates, George Graves, and — this is unique — Mrs. George Graves. There are, of course, no puppeteer schools, either here or in Europe — where the art has been flourishing for centuries; puppet eers are born. The rest of the marionette family at the Carnival includes Harry North, the clever gen tleman from New York, who writes the books LET 'EM REPEAL IT— I STILL GOT MY PLUMBING BUSINESS!" and lyrics for the shows, and Winifred Leni- han, who created Saint Joan and Major Bar bara in the Theatre Guild's New York pro ductions of the Shaw pieces. Miss Lenihan is dramatic director of the shows. New Gadget * I ^HERE'S an ingenious little radio now on A the market. We saw it, not in a shop (although department and music stores, we un derstand, are carrying them) but in a once illegit-but-now-legit bierstube. It's called the Radio Keg and it looks like a beer keg. It's about twelve inches long, eight at the ends and ten at the middle. The radio itself is an excellent instrument with a rich, clear tone. The keg-cabinet is quarter-sawed white oak with a walnut finish, bound with highly pol ished copper hoops and with a copper spigot. The dials are on one end and it rests on a rubber mounted chassis and it looked perfectly at home in back of the bar when we spotted it. Collectors'1 League TT seems that there is some talk in the East of forming a Collectors' League. It all came out of the tremendous response to a bugle call sounded in Boston by a group of glass lovers. Shortly after the word had gone out the formation of the Early American Glass Club became an actuality. The club was founded early this year and some hundred and a half thought it was a grand idea and joined up. Many more have become members since that time, most of them being in New England. They meet most informally about once a month and exchange ideas, verify uncertain pieces as well as trade them, and add to their knowledge of glass making. Now there are other things to collect besides glass, and there are many collectors who can't qualify for membership in the glass club, prob ably wouldn't even want to. So it's the idea of Mary D. ("Friend to Collectors") Robin son of the Elm Street antique shop House of Memories that an organization be formed to which all sorts of collectors may belong, and under the auspices of which they may meet and discuss those things which most interest them. (We, ourself, are something of a col lector — we have a large assortment of uncash- able pari-mutuel and "tote" tickets, some of them very pretty, too.) If a Collectors' League is contemplated in New York, why not one in Chicago with, possibly, other units to follow? Like the Garden Club of America, it might grow into one of the leading national movements. Its purpose, like that of the Eastern League, would be social, educational and philanthropic; its object to bring together men and women whose hobby is collecting objects of art. It would also provide facilities for lectures and exhibitions, a mart for the exchange of objects from collections, and exhibitions for charity. And most of all, it would arouse in the young July, 1933 23 people of today a reverence for rare, old things, as well as a discrimination in their selections so that they might seek only the fine instead of just any old thing. It's an idea for local collectors to work on. Convict Ship COME weeks ago, driven by a stiff lake breeze, a very strange sort of ship sailed into Chicago's harbor. Under full press of canvas, square rigged from three masts, her bluff bow, quarter galleries and square cut stern placed upon her the stamp of antiquity. Lake sailors gazed in astonishment as she pressed sturdily on. Sprinkled over her sails and sides was the broad, black arrow-head — the old English "brand" of crime, — and then the name was discerned — Success. Quickly the word passed. No cheering, no tooting of steam whistles greeted her. Rather it was with a feeling of awe that men gazed upon this strange ship sailing into Chicago out of a dim, dreadful past. For the Success is the sole survivor of the Australian convict ships that made grisly his tory many years ago. From 1802 to 1851 she transported convicts from England to the Botany Bay penal colony. Then for seventeen years more she was a floating prison in Hob- son's Bay, Melbourne. Thousands of men, women and children suffered untold agony aboard the Success. Many hundreds died and were thrown to the sharks. Scores were hanged from the yardarm of the foremast. Many leaped into the ocean. Other ships avoided her. The very name Success meant grief, misery, death. She was the pariah of the ocean, the outcast of the high seas. Built of solid Burmese teak in 1790, she was — and is — equipped with a ghastly array of ancient branding irons, shackles, flog ging posts. Her two holds contain seventy- two dungeon cells in which humans were chained like wild beasts. Now she is moored in the Chicago River near the Clark Street Bridge, a blistering in dictment of man's inhumanity to man; preach ing a vivid sermon on the futility of hate and cruelty; a dumb witness to progress, for the Success harks back to the days when one hun dred and forty-five crimes in England were punishable by death. Changes Made /~\NE of our operatives who is always thumbing telephone directories seeking odd facts dumped a number of notes on our desk. He'd been comparing a copy of Chi cago's Classified Telephone Directory of 1904 with the current 1933 edition of the Red Book. And there've been some changes made. For instance, in 1904 there were 260 hotels listed in the Red Book; today there are 960, twenty-two of them still doing business on 'WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S GOING TO BE. their 1904 locations. Among those are the Great Northern, Hyde Park, Greystone, Bis marck, Auditorium and Luzern. Of the seventy-seven breweries and their branches listed in 1904, thirteen are still operating. The new Red Book lists twenty- four altogether. Chicago banks and trust companies have also had their ups and downs in the past three decades (but you know that). From a total of sixty in 1904, they increased to 274 in the 1930 Classified and dropped to a total of 122 in the new book. The old gray mare had held her own sur prisingly well. Of eighty-three horse-shoers listed in 1904, the new directory contains more than half, or fifty-two. Evidently horse-shoe ing was considered something of an art in '04, for at 4923 Cottage Grove Avenue in that year there dwelt one horse-shoer who listed himself as Professor John D. Fitzgerald. Only seven of the eighty-three are still in business. The classification of "Department Store," the Donnelley people disclose, was unknown in '04. However, under the heading "Dry Goods" and again under "Furriers," Marshall Field & Company are shown to be among the rare few who have survived twenty-nine years of business ups, and who are now listed among the 132 firms classed today as Depart ment Stores. There was only one dealer in malt and hops, Falk, Wormser 6-? Co., on Kinzie Street, in the 1904 Red Book. In the current edition there are nine, including this same concern. Of twenty-eight theatres listed then, the Chicago Opera House, the Garrick, the Grand, the Haymarket and the People's are the sole survivors. These are listed now among the 297 "newcomers" in the field. Twenty-nine years ago there weren't any physio-therapists nor chiropractors. There were only ten chiropodists. Today there are listed 300 chiropodists, 148 chiropractors, 38 physio-therapists, and 221 osteopathic physi cians. The number of physicians and sur geons has increased from 2,160 in 1904 to 8,621 today. Perhaps the most interesting list in the entire 1904 Red Book is that of some 3,600 saloons occupying eighteen pages and running the al phabet from B. Abbot, 625 W. Chicago Ave nue to John Zventina, 288 W. 12th Street. The latest edition doesn't list any, but prob ably the next one will. Masked Marvel /^REWS of Herald and Examiner newsboys, ^ under one Ed Fontana, a gentleman of Y. M. C. A. training, have been selling quite a few extra papers in the Loop, they say. The story further goes that one Marty Dwyer, of the hardy Dwyers, protested one recent night against this practice. The argu ment between Marty and Ed became heated, and the first thing Ed knew, the two were engaging in a bit of fisticuffs, surrounded by admiring newsboys. Mr. Dwyer shortly picked himself up from the curb and— the tale tells— reached for a bit of hardware in the hip pocket. Mr. Fontana told Mr. Dwyer not to be a sucker and do anything foolish — if he wanted to fight, to do so in the manner endorsed by the Marquis of Queensbury and the Y. M. C. A. Mr. Dwyer's companions, the story con- 24 The Chicagoan tinues, took Marty's hardware for safe keep ing and told him he could punch the "Y" boy out of the Loop. The boxing match was then resumed. Again Marty was laid low. So-o-o-o, as Mr. Dwyer 's companions car ried their defeated champion off from the scene, the puzzled Marty (an excellent fighter, ordi narily, it seems) asked how in the name of excellence the battle could have turned out so unexpectedly. "Who, etc., and what, etc., is this Ed guy?" he murmured. "Him?" they told him. "Oh, he was the runner-up in the last Golden Gloves boxing tournament." Imperial Treasures * I *HE boys who are running the big show on the lakefront rather missed a good across-the-board bet when they didn't line up the Hammer Collection of Russian Imperial Treasures now on display at Marshall Field's. It's probably just as well, though, because the present setting is much more suitable than the Fair Grounds. We didn't have time to see everything (but we're going back), so we concentrated on the Romanoff drinking equipment. And what swell presents they'd make for certain people we know. We couldn't help thinking about that sort of thing as we inspected each item. To Donald Dearborn we'd like to present the huge wooden beer jug. It's lined with porce lain and bears the initials "A. A." for Alex ander Alexandrovitch, Czar, 1881. This tankard has about a three or four quart capac ity, but it was never too large for A. A.; he could always drain it. We'd like to watch D. D. try. And there's a Russian silver hunting flask of unusual shape with a cup and leather car rying case. The monogram of Alexander III is on the flask. The set would be most useful worn, slung over the shoulder, with a mess jacket. There's a frosted wine bottle mounted in silver with a grape vine design, enclosing on one side the crown and monogram of Alexander II and his wife Marie, on the other side the Imperial Double-headed Eagle. There's a colossal cham pagne cooler, silver with a thick overlay of gold and with grapes, leaves, vines decorating the rim. The insignia used only by the Romanoff family is on it — St. George slaying the dragon. There's a high-shoulder vodka bottle with the crown and monogram of Catherine the Great, the design burnished with gold, and a double- headed eagle stopper. The bottom is quite worn — from the many times Catherine pulled it across the table toward her, took a slug and then shoved it back. Another high-shoulder vodka bottle, richly enameled, belonged to Nicholai II. And there's a hand blown mug with a hand fashioned handle bearing the monogram of Catherine, a wine glass of Eliza beth's, wife of Alexander I, and a flip glass (just the right size and shape for a double Old Fashioned) that used to be Elizabeth's. One of the most beautiful (we thought) objects is the decanter, with twelve glasses, that belonged to Czarina Alexandra Feodo- rovna, wife of Nicholai II. It's Imperial Rus sian crystal bearing an enameled medallion that had been welded into the crystal. That's now a lost art. There's a wine glass from the Im perial Russian factory, 1801, that was Eliza- 'OF COURSE YOU'RE GOING TO FOLLOW YOUR FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS!" beth's, and a solid silver champagne cooler, engraved on one side with the Russian Impe rial Double-headed Eagle and the crown and monogram of the Grand Duke Nicholai Nicholaivitch, commander of the armies. A picnic kit that belonged to Alexander II is on display, too. It's a leather kit with knives and forks, a water bottle, flask, jigger, cup and solid silver sandwich box. And there are several miniature and full-sized ceremonial wine vessels — \ovsh, they're called. The most modern piece in the collection is a 1912 wine bottle that belonged to Nicholai II. Oh, yes, and we learned, too, that all Russian silver equal to American Sterling is marked "84", with the date and weight, and a minute double-headed eagle if Imperial. And 22 carat gold is "56" in Russian goldsmithdom. The Squirrel Poured T T7E almost met an Indian the other day and then, because it was so very warm, we decided not to. It was Ah-Je-Dum-O, The Squirrel to his white brothers, chief of the Chippewa tribe of Minnesota. The Squir rel came to Town for the Fair. It was the first time he'd ever been out of his native northwoods. He couldn't speak English, either. He came out of the north by airplane, his first flight, and was rather phlegmatic about it all. The Chief came on official business; had to take part in the dedication ceremonies of the miniature of Itasca Park (Minnesota's state park) in the Minnesota division of the Court of States. The park, by the way, is a very exact reproduction of the basin of that lake in northern Minnesota. The Mississippi River (Father of Waters, right?) runs through the park, and through the miniature. And The Squirrel brought with him a pail of water from his part of the river. The idea was that, when all the newsmen and photographers gathered 'round at the opening, The Squirrel would pour the Mississippi water from his bucket into the miniature Mississippi in the Itasca Park replica. The ceremonies began and cameras clicked and the Chief poured, but some of the reporters and photogs were late. The late photogs yelled for him to pour in some more water; he did, but this time, having exhausted his supply of Ol' Miss water, he had to use plain Lake Michigan water. They kept requesting that he pour again and again which he did, a bit bewildered to be sure, but game. After all, it didn't make much difference to him from whence the water came, because it hadn't been his idea to begin with. He had a big time on his visit here. July, 1933 25 FIRST SUMMER BRIDE MISS MARY FORTUNE, DAUGHTER OF THE JOHN L. FORTUNES, 1451 ASTOR STREET, WHO WAS MARRIED ON THE FIRST DAY OF JUNE AT HIGH NOON AT HOLY NAME CATHEDRAL TO MR. WILLIAM J. LAWLOR, JR., SON OF THE W. J. LAWLORS OF 3100 LAKE SHORE DRIVE PHOTOCRAI'll BV PAUL STONE-RAYMOR Mr. Gore of Chicago The Successor to Ponce de Leon By Milton S. Mayer POLITICS, like industry, banking, edu cation, and certain other forms of activ ity, has a habit of raising very mediocre men to very high estate — to seats, so to speak, of the mighty. This phenomenon has been remarked by various observers of democracy at various stages of the world's history, and it has long been apparent to the average Amer ican of any education at all that small-calibre individuals frequently wind up as Presidents of the United States, as Cabinet officers and in other such soft spots. There was a time when the American peo ple had a mind of its own and resented this procedure. As recently as March 4, 1845, this resentment was voiced by mobs of people who had been told that in order to have a voice in choosing their rulers all they had to do was to be white, male and twenty-one. On that day, in the streets of Washington, thousands of them paraded, filling the air with a derisive bellow — "Who is James K. Polk?" James K. Polk was President of the United States — was installed, in fact, that very day; but otherwise the question was a fair one. The bosses had decided, as one wag put it, to interrupt Mr. Polk's steady progress from obscurity to ob livion and place him in the White House while they ran the country "safely." But in 1933 we are inured to this sort of goings-on. We expect nothing from the straw men who are assigned to the mahogany desks, and if we get less than that we take it with a shrug. We understand, in addition, that it takes money and labor to swing elections and that the gents who put up the money and per form the labor are not impelled, by and large, by some Utopian urge to improve the common weal. They do it because the election of their man means higher tariffs or bigger contracts or a juicy appointment. A routine dispatch from Washington, two or three paragraphs in length, reported a few weeks back that one Robert H. Gore "of Chi cago and Florida" had been chosen by the President to be Governor of Porto Rico. So far as I was concerned, and I think I repre sented a cross-section of public opinion, any one who wanted to be Governor of Porto Rico had a right to be; what, after all, is Porto Rico between friends? There were those among us, I felt sure, who did not know if Porto Rico is east or west of Suez and who, what was more, did not care. Along with some several millions of American citizens with troubles of their own, I felt a strong, an almost overpow ering, disinterest in Porto Rico, not to mention the Governor thereof. But being of a strange turn of mind, as epileptics and writing people sometimes are, I decided to find out what man ner of Chicagoan, or semi-Chicagoan, it was to whom Toastmaster-General Farley had leased out the welfare of our little brown brothers in Porto Rico, if indeed they are little, brown or our brothers. The first thing I learned was that Robert H. Gore was the Man Almost Nobody Knows. My most reliable source of information re ported him as "a bird who made a lot of money in some phoney sort of insurance, bought a couple of newspapers in Florida and jumped on the Roosevelt bandwagon early enough to get a job." Another person of parts, a Mr. Glotz, let us say, had only one recollection of the man. Mr. Glotz had been at an insurance convention, probably at French Lick Springs, and heard Mr. Gore answer a roll call as "Robert H. Gore of Illinois, Florida, Kentucky and Indiana." The newspaper fra ternity, or sorority, as it is rapidly becoming, could provide only routine information, such as accumulates in reference rooms around the name of any successful business man. By this time one characteristic of Robert H. Gore was clear: he was not a publicity fiend. That is always to the credit of a man, but it offers no very complete portrait. Maybe no one knew anything about Mr. Gore sim ply because there was nothing to know about him. On the other hand, it is true that a great many men whom there is nothing to know about have become intriguing figures by dint of hiring press agents and serving bottled goods to newspaper people; in this way does more than one prize fighter, picture actor or politician inflate and float up to Olympus. Mr. Gore still did not look any too good: a gentleman with a bulky share of the world's goods who had purchased three small papers in Florida and served as a brevet second lieu tenant under General Farley in the historic Biltmore campaign back in the fall of '32; a heeler in the national organization of a party that is crowded to the scuppers with heelers; the recipient of a purely political appointment — the governorship of an insignificant island that was discovered by Admiral Columbus in 1493, was prodded in vain by Ponce de Leon on his quest for goat glands a few years later, and has not been heard from since. So I took the bull by the horns and turned to the G's in the telephone book. Down the line a way I found: GORE R H ins 209 S LaS. Mr. Gore told me, in a voice that proved nothing except that he spoke American like a native, to come on over. Now 209 S. LaS. is a familiar address to anyone who in the boom days was prudent enough to invest his savings in Middle West Utilities bonds, and I was soon there. The building is an old pile occu pied principally by stock brokers, and the in scription "The Rookery" above the entrance has nothing to do with the practice of rooking investors that goes on inside, but refers to a lodging house for birds that once stood on the spot. Up in the far reaches of the building the best part of a whole floor is tenanted by the North American Accident Insurance Co. Following the arrows on a long succession of cut glass doors I at last got to one that said Entrance, and entered. The room extended for half a block and was lined with a double file of oak desks, all alike, as in a wholesale law office, but all empty. There was a gal at the switchboard who told me that Mr. Gore would be in in a moment, adding, with a gesture toward the empty desks, "We don't work on Saturday." A man came in, medium height, a little over medium weight. He was Mr. Gore. He led me through the long room, between the empty desks, and into a small office at the corner of the building. He sat down, with his panama hat still on, behind an old desk. On the desk were some books in the Spanish language. The office was antique and inartistic, with an actual coal fire place in one corner, with a mantle above it. On the mantle was a cardboard cut-out photo graph of Roosevelt. On the wall were photo graphs — one of Farley, another of Farley pre senting Gore with a loving cup, another the newspaper photograph of Cermak supported by two men just after he had been shot. There were no preliminaries. "I know what you want," Gore said, and began talking. It was business-like, yet it was unhurried. I felt comfortable and easy — and welcome, although the man had not smiled or bowed or taken my hat or reached me a chair. He sat there tipped back in his swivel chair, his legs crossed, his hat on. He was a man with a round, full face, but the face was neither too round nor too full to be simple. It was something of a hard face, an Irish face, in the manner of speaking. But it did not have the unhealthy fatty flush that is associated with Irish faces in the late forties. The impressive thing about the man was his contagious ease, his obvious contempt for formality — a contempt that was unostentatious, and ingratiating because it was unostentatious. Pretty soon I knew what made this business man — as I assumed he was — so easy for a newspaperman to sit with. He was a newspaperman. He did all the talking, in a strong, even voice. Everything he said was clear, and it was clear that what his position prevented his discussing clearly he did not mention at all. He spoke as easily as an old newspaperman writes, and as simply. Without any effort to avoid cursing, he spoke entirely without epi thets, except once — and he repeated this from time to time: "Don't have anything to do with a cheap so-and-so. That's about the best rule I know." "I've been lucky," he said. "I've worked hard, but I've been lucky. I think I've got good reason to believe in luck." And he told me why. Bob Gore belongs to that still unorganized association of men who in the far days of knee pants hauled water for the elephants and got so tired hauling water for the elephants that they never saw the circus because they fell asleep on the seat. He was born forty-seven years ago on Queen Victoria's birthday, and July, 1933 27 when he said "Queen Victoria's birthday" he added the reason why a man with a couple of million dollars and no love for stiff shirts wants to be Governor of Porto Rico: "I always liked to think it was the birthday of rulers." He grinned as he said it, but he said it. In Owensboro, Ky., when you're ten years old and your father is dead, you don't have much of a choice. There were no rich folks in Owensboro, and Bob Gore's mother was poor even for Owensboro. But she had been a school teacher; her chil dren weren't going to drive grocery wagons all their lives. Gore remembers the night he fell asleep and the horse went back to the stable. The boy's mother looked all over Owensboro for him and found him asleep on the wagon, the horse trying to get into the stall without being unhitched. There was another poor kid in Owensboro who was saving his money to go to college too. He and Bob Gore weren't pals, so early, but they had something in common: they were both orphans, and they both wanted to get somewhere in the world. The other kid's name — just fancy — was George Gaw. When he was sixteen, Bob Gore went away to St. Mary's, a small, and poor, Catholic college. George Gaw went too. Before them Richard Muldoon, wondering if he would ever be a Bishop, had gone to St. Mary's, and Edwin Morrow, wondering if he would ever be Governor of Kentucky. After them came a kid named Abel, who wanted to be a sur geon, and a Polish boy named Menc Szymczak, who had an aptitude for the law and for eco nomics and who had long before decided he would never "Americanize" his name. They were all poor. "It was at St. Mary's that we started call ing him 'Science,' " George Gaw recalls. "He earned part of his tuition by ringing the bell for study hours. He wasn't a sissy — nobody was at St. Mary's — but he studied harder than any kid in the school. The old rascal used to talk about things none of the rest of us could understand. I remember a debating contest we had. Bob licked every kid in the school. There were 26 points to be given in each de bate. In the finals, Bob got all 26 points — the other kid didn't get any." JDack in Owensboro, with the four year course knocked down in two, the college graduate went to work in a wagon shop. He wanted to be a newspaper man — a journalist. He marshaled his nerve and went to the office of the Inquirer and asked for a job. There was none. Twelve hours later the man who covered the depot beat broke his leg, and Bob Gore was hired. His first Saturday night on the desk, the rest of the boys on the Inquirer decided to initiate him with an old trick. It was cold and the snow was piling up. A telephone call came in, the voice said that a man had been killed at Smoke Hill. Smoke Hill was five miles away, and the roads were impassable. Gore started walking down the track — it was the only way he could get there. A mile out of Owensboro he stumbled on a body. It was a fellow who was supposed to have been killed a year before — his wife had collected the insur ance. He had been working in Henderson and sneaking home to his wife every Saturday night. This Saturday night he had been killed by a train. Gore hid the body until morning and scooped the other Owensboro paper on the story. There was a raise and a promotion and an offer to go to Evansville as city editor of the paper there. He had been in Evansville a few months when a man named Scripps, who already owned a few papers in the East, started the Evansville Press. Gore liked the Scripps paper and went over and asked for a job. He was getting $35 a week, and the Scripps edi tor offered him $12 a week. He took the job. He had married his best — and only — girl, and there were two kids already; and the salary was $12 a week. The Press sent Gore to Boonesville a few months later, where a farmer and his wife and child had been killed in bed with an axe. The boys from the Indianapolis and Chicago papers played poker in the sheriff's parlor; Gore sat in the sheriff's kitchen telling the sheriff's wife that he had never tasted such cookies. The sheriff's wife gave him a chair and told him to go up the back steps to a room on the second floor and climb on the chair and look in the transom. Through the transom Gore saw Willie Lee — a son of the murdered farmer — signing a confession. That was another scoop. The boys from Indianapolis and Chicago went on playing poker in the sheriff's parlor. Bob Gore spent most of his time making telephone calls — all sorts of telephone calls — and just incidentally kidding the Boonesville 'phone girl. One day Bob Gore was cut into a telephone conversation between the sheriff and the warden of the state prison; they were going to get Willie Lee out of Boonesville to forestall a lynching. That was another scoop. Scripps made Bob Gore managing editor of the Press. And there was another baby. In 1912 Gore organized the Bull Moose movement in southern Indiana, and the Press supported Teddy Roosevelt. The Press flourished, but the Terre Haute Post was in a bad way. Scripps asked Gore to take it over. When Gore went to the Post, the paper's circulation was 6,000. And it didn't go up. And there was another baby. One dreary day a friend from Chicago dropped in at the Post and told Gore about a stunt a fellow had in St. Louis. It had to do with selling accident insurance along with subscriptions. It wasn't working very well but the man from Chicago thought there was something in it. Gore went to St. Louis, found out why the scheme wasn't work ing, revised it and brought it back to Terre Haute. The first month he tried it, he made $4200. He put the $4200 in the Post treasury and got a letter from Scripps asking what the $4200 was for. Gore told him. Scripps wrote back, "we are in the newspaper busi ness, not the insurance business," and told him to withdraw the $4200. Gore continued peddling accident insur ance, but not through the Post. The insur ance business grew, and Gore was making a hundred thousand a year in it. But it took too much time, and he wanted to stay with the paper. He met a fellow he liked and of fered him a 49 per cent interest in the busi ness to take over the active management. The fellow agreed, and they decided to sign the papers the next day. They sat around talking and the fellow pulled half a dozen fountain pens out of his pocket — he manufactured them — and showed them to Gore. Gore said, "I need a fountain pen." The fellow didn't offer him one. The next day Gore called the in surance deal off. "Don't have anything to do with a cheap so-and-so." While he was wavering between quitting Scripps and quitting the in surance business, the fall of 1920 came around, and the Democratic candidates for President and Vice-President came to Terre Haute. Gore wrote an editorial in the Post: "The Democrats have got their ticket twisted. Roosevelt ought to be the head and Cox the tail. . . . Roosevelt has the Presiden tial temper and the Presidential mind. . . . He won't be Vice-President, but some day he will be President." The Roosevelt in question was Franklin D., and the year was 1920. The next year Bob Gore quit the newspaper business. The PosCs circulation was 22,000. On Nov. 18, 1921, he received a letter: My Dear Gore: I shall be very sorry if con ditions cause your separation from my institution. I shall be more sorry on personal grounds than on business grounds. ... I would have to be very inconsistent if I should not advise you, as I have advised all young men, that it is better to make ten cents working for one's self and being inde pendent and free, than to make a dollar as an employee. . . . It was signed E. W. Scripps. On Nov. 23, he received a letter from F. R. Peters, president of the Scripps papers in Indiana : "... I think your record has again demon strated what a tremendous opportunity the Scripps concern offers to men of untiring piuck and de termination to succeed. I recall that you came to the Evansville Press at a salary of $12 per week and although you had a growing family to pro vide for you stuck and advanced. When the opportunity came to you four years ago to go to Terre Haute you grabbed opportunity by the fore lock and led her uphill on a run. I am sure that none will begrudge you any fair reward for your success. . . ." Just a couple of letters from bosses who were satisfied with a hired man's work, but if Gore was the kind of man you didn't believe instinctively, they would serve as documentary evidence. The accident insurance business kept growing. And there were more babies — nine of them altogether. But babies were no longer a problem. In the ten years after he left Scripps Gore made a round $2,- 000,000 with the accident insurance scheme. And the scheme — he makes this clear — was not his. He liked Florida and bought a farm at Fort Lauderdale. He liked newspapers and bought three, at Fort Lauderdale, Daytona Beach and Deland. He liked Oak Park and built a house there. He liked Barrington and bought a farm there. He likes flowers — at Oak Park and Barrington he has 800 varieties of iris and 117 varieties of lilacs, and the Fort Lauderdale place is a tropical garden. When he sees people standing outside his gate and looking at the flowers, he brings them in and spends anywhere from an hour to an afternoon showing them the blooms he's proud est of. The Gore papers in Florida were Demo cratic, of course, and their owner came to know the Democrats in Chicago. The Demo crats in Chicago were a pretty bad parcel, and whether for that reason or because he had no absorbing interest in local politics Gore does not say, but one way or the other he did not take a hand in the game (Turn to page 78) 28 The Chicagoan ART 1ST ON BUSINESS "O.

With a few notable exceptions these murals should be laid from end to end and left there. They certainly do not belong on walls. Most of the artists responsible for them are easel painters and their approach to a mural problem is identical to their individual approach of organizing an easel canvas. Their murals are nothing more than blown up com positions that have no relationship to the architectural forms embody ing them. Weisenborn's twenty-five feet by thirty-eight feet "Machine Move- ment" is nothing more than the typical Weisenborn abstraction that expresses Weisenborn but does not express "Machine Movement" and certainly has no relationship to the walls surrounding it. Smith's Paint, Powder, Jewels was interesting as a sketch but en larged to a forty foot by forty foot wall resulted in a weak and in effectual decoration. Schwartz' twenty-five feet by thirty-eight feet "Mining" is deco rative and dramatic, a typical Schwartz canvas enlarged to a wall over a stairway with the usual brilliant color and stylized forms so peculiar to Schwartz. Katz' forty foot by forty foot mural — "Business, machines, people" — tells its story in simple well-organized forms. Full of movement and color that is right and not only for its rightness in color fitting to the theme, but because it bridges so successfully the; gap that usually exists between murals and their architectural environment makes this mural the most satisfying of the group in the General Exhibits buildings. John Norton's murals in the Science building are interesting be cause of the successful decorative quality achieved with subjects that could have been made much less attractive and informative if placed in another artist's hands. Edgar Miller's murals for the Rock Island railroad exhibit in the Travel and Transport building and the allegorical panel and decora tive chart of seals for the Tuberculosis Institute exhibit in the Science building should not be missed. Too bad this capable painter is not represented on as large a scale as the Thomas Benton murals for the State of Indiana. To Edgar Miller murals are not pictures put up to fill spaces — they are those spaces. Indiana should be congratulated on commissioning one of the few significant mural painters in the country for its exhibit in the Hall of States. The complete hall is the finest of the group. Beginning with the Mound builders and Indians and continuing around the walls in twelve by eighteen foot panels, we find glowing luminous color and dramatic forms embodied in heroic compositions telling us of the struggles and triumphs in the history of a state, a magnificent achievement that places Benton in a position in this country relative to that of Rivera and Orozco in Mexico in that of getting close enough to their native soil to successfully depict with aesthetic worth the past and contemporary history of their respective countries, Benton's preliminary sketches and research work consisted of an extensive trip through Indiana resulting in over 600 drawings including portraits of 150 living Indiana people (there are 294 figures in all). Miniature cartoons and models in clay were then made for each panel before any actual painting began. The murals cover a total of 2,800 square feet and are to be taken back to Indiana after the fair and installed in a central hall of a proposed state museum. Following is the list of artists commissioned by A Century of Progress who painted murals in the various official buildings. This list does not include the many and various ones painted for commercial and other exhibits. Agricultural Building David McCosh — Social Science and Welfare, twenty-four feet by thirteen feet.

COVER OF A MENU CARD OF THE CARRIAGE DAYS WHEN LEISURE AND PLEASURE RIMED AT MEALTIME. KAUFMAN N H FABRY MENU FOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7 1886— WITH DINNER AT 12:30. REPRODUCED BY COURTESY OF THE PALMER HOUSE MANAGEMENT. SUPPER AT TWO Breakfast, If Any, in Bed By Patrick McHugh FAR too many comparisons have already been drawn and quar tered and cast aside between the Fair of '93 and the colorful carnival now over on the lakefront. Those who knew the Columbian Exposition are quite apt to wave the banner for the Class of '93; those who were too young to know it, or were born after it, will naturally attend coming reunions of the Class of '33. And far too much has already been written about comparisons of the two Fairs. But you know how it is in this writing "game," you have to have a lead. The question popped up at us one evening while wandering from the gay new Empire Room of the Palmer House into the exhibition of hotel furnishings of three, four, five decades ago that is in the lobby : what did they do nights? We didn't dare ask any of the old Owl Car boys; we knew what the answers would be. "Oh, we dined there at the old Palmer House, at the Auditorium, at the Great Northern, Henrici's, Rector's . . . the theatres — the Garrick, the Iroquois, the Grand . . . and there was Peacock Alley in the Con gress." Or the East's Waldorf-Astoria, Delmonico's, Maxim's. And there was White City and Sans Souci. Oh, they probably had a very gay time of it. A night out then used to be dinner at a hotel, or restaurant, or Strauss waltzes and melodies from The Merry Widow in the old Bismarck Garden or the Red Star Inn. Now it's still the hotels — the supper rooms — and the night clubs; and it's Texas Guinan or Helen Morgan and a name band. And note, please, what Chicago is providing in the way of a night out for her latter-day Fair guests. There are the hotel supper rooms. Veloz and Yolanda can probably stay at the Empire Room in the Palmer House forever, they're that appreciated. And why not? They're the grand est dancing team of the era. Richard Cole and his orchestra play lovely melodies in a genteel way, Sally Sweet, late of Stri\e Me Pin\, blue-sings, Paul Cadieux has a rich tenor voice and the twelve Abbott girls, of international reputation, are a comely, beautifully trained line of gals. Over on the Avenue we're taking you to, at Mr. Kaufman's Con gress Hotel, Vincent Lopez and his orchestra play amid the hedge rows of the Joseph Urban Room. Lopez and his orchestra play in the Pompeian Grill during the dinner hour. In that room, too, is the famous Merry-Go-Round Bar. And in the cool, green Hawaiian Room Carlos Molina and his tango rhumba orchestra thrill the guests with their swaying tempos. Robert Royce and Ruth Pryor and Alex Kerenoff head the entertainment and circulate between the rooms. Down the Avenue there is the Stevens Hotel's new Boulevard Room, large, cool, with tall mirrors and murals. Charlie Agnew and his orchestra play. Out north, on the lake, is the Marine Dining THE COOL, GAY EMPIRE ROOM OF THE NEW PALMER HOUSE FOR CHICAGOANS AND VISITORS TO A CENTURY OF PROGRESS. THE GRAND DINING HALL OF THE OLD PALMER HOUSE OF A PERIOD BEFORE THE WONDERS OF THE COLUMBIAN EXPOSITION. Room of the Edgewater Beach Hotel, and the Board Walk. Mark Fisher and his twenty-two piece orchestra seem to be settled there for the summer. Operator De Witt of the Hotel La Salle has some new talent for his floorshow in The Hangar, the novelly decorated room atop that hostelry. Johnny Hamp and his orchestra, Charles Kaley as m.c. and June MacCloy, singer extraordinary, stay on. A new adagio trio, the Three Theodores and Florence Kope, modernistic dancer and several other entertainers have been added to the floor- show. The Terrace Garden with its meticulously carried out tropical setting now has Benny Meroff and his orchestra and the Ainsley Lambert girls head one of the best floorshows in Town. Clyde McCoy and his fine orchestra are fixtures at The Drake's Summer Garden. Jane Carpenter plays the organ between dances, and Fowler and Tamara, after four years of European triumphs, dance nightly. The Grill Room in The Blackstone has a club-like atmosphere and is a popular rendezvous for the younger crowd. Tom Gentry and his orchestra play and Cornell and Graff, a sensational modernistic danc ing team, perform. College Inn is Bernie-less now, but Buddy Rogers and his orchestra and his autographing pencil draw the crowds. The night club situation is the same as it is in New York. There are all kinds of them and you have to take your pick if you're not an habitue The Paramount Club is an inti mate sort of place, small, pleasingly decorated and always featuring superior entertainment. James Hall, Babe Kane, Bee Jackson, Sally Rand and Anita La Pierre, really an all-star cast, head the show. Billy Carr, small and very alive, is master of ceremonies. Sid Lang and his orchestra play. At Chez Paree you have a large, cool theatre- nightclub, elaborately but tastefully decorated. The glamorous Helen Morgan and Georgie Price head the excellent floorshow. Tom Gerun and his orchestra play. Louis Falkenstein's Hi-Hat Club always has an amusing floorshow. George Petrone and his band play, with Elmer Falkenstein at the piano, and there is the attractive Silver Bar. Another reason for recommending the Hi-Hat Club is that Host Falkenstein made an art of his profession, and a more pleasant, genial host is hard to find. The Southern Supper Club in the Crillon Hotel has all the atmosphere and hospitality of an old Southern mansion and the Pad dock Bar, with Freddie Hankie's orchestra and a fast floorshow headed by Lee Barton Evans. It's one of the newer clubs in Town. Ralph Gallet's Club Royale has Fifi D'Orsay, full of verve and elan, heading a big revue. Cliff Winehill is back at Vanity Fair in the Outdoor Garden, a delightful summer night haven. Don Fernando and his orchestra play and the show is great. At the 225 Club Handicapper Sophie Tucker, assisted by Ted Shapiro, leads an aggregation of excellent entertainers. Jules Stein and his orchestra play. And, be cause of Charlie ("Picture-in-a-House-Ad") Dawn's brave fight against the whole thing, Sophie should no longer be called the "Last of the Red-hot Mammas." Earl Hines, the "King of the Ivories," has tucked himself in for the summer at the Grand Terrace. There you'll find the biggest and best all-colored show in Town. Husk O'Hare and his band play at the Canton Tea Garden. The Genial Gentleman of the Air has always been an old favorite of the Town's. He has six grand looking gals as a part of the entertainment. Colo- simo's has been completely remodeled and redecorated and, by the time this book is out, will be open with a revue called "The 1933 Follies," and George Devron's orchestra. (Turn to page 79) July, 1933 33 POLO by Palenske Mr. R. H. Palenske, of Wilmette and Woodstock, Illinois, was inspired to these sketches by the recent indoor matches. Art director of a great ad vertising agency and co-organizer with Mr. J. Murray Gibbon of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company of the famous Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, the artist's experience includes an active decade of reportorial sketching, faithful attendance upon principal European horse shows and, always, steadfast devo tion to his own stable, now maintained at his Woodstock estate. In later issues Mr. Palenske will sketch distinguished equine members of prominent Chicago owned stables. Equine Equations Arlington j Polo and the Horse Shows By Jack McDonald TECHNOCRACY, the bug bear of every major political organization last winter and the principal topic of the orators of Bug House Square, is rearing its hideous head over the Arlington Park race track. Think of it. The human element is being removed from racing, the sport that has always been so dependent upon the variations of the human equation. Even in the matter of tips, the whispered words of the landlady of the cousin of the fellow who chauffeurs for the mistress of the owner are worth more than the best handicapping by weight and past per formances. At least everyone who has ever spent much time on the turf has at one time or another bet some horse on just such advice. Regardless of all that, the Totalizer has ar rived, and by now has gobbled up many dollars from members of the Chicago chapter of the "poor pickers" club. No longer can we swear at fancied mistakes of the ticket sellers, cashiers or track account ants. All we can do now in the event of seeming error is to write a stinging little note to the Commonwealth Edison Company. And little good that would do. In all probability the note would come back stamped "Wrong Address." Track accountants, by the way, are those fiends in human form who lurk in caves under the grandstand, and by some in tricate mathematical process make your winner who closed at ten to one pay a measly four dollars mutuel. Joking aside, this Totalizer is the first all-electric one in the world and is gaining in popularity every day. About the only complaint I have heard is that the ink on the new tickets rubs off. If bettors would stop hoarding their losing tickets the ink prob lem would disappear. Opening day was a scorcher, with the hedges, flowers and even some of the charming ladies in the clubhouse looking a bit wilted. (Feminine friends who may have been at the track opening day are excepted.) The old guard found some changes, the most noticeable being the elegant three point two, another innovation being the change from butlers to maids. It was inter esting to watch the patrons gain confidence in the Totalizer. Every race showed a substan tial increase in the total amount bet over the preceding race. This year finds the best of American horse flesh at Arlington, with all indications point ing toward a record breaking season. The meeting will not lack for good jockeys, rich purses or fast horses. Almost half a million dollars in purses will be distributed. The Futurity, for two year olds, with a purse of $55,000, and the Classic, worth $35,000 are the high spots on an excellent card. I have picked a three-legged horse to win the Classic, and if the staff of The Chicagoan is seen riding in high powered motors, you may know NOTE: Mr. McDonald, a son of the Old South that was and is Vir ginia and Washington, D. C, in af fairs of turf, field and show ring, begins herewith a series of articles having for its objective the proper recording of events, trends and de velopments in the realm of King Horse. Proceeding in close working company with Mr. R. H. Palenske, whose sketches conceived during the indoor polo matches a few weeks ago are presented on the page facing, Mr. McDonald will give attention to every phase of horse interest. It may be added, parenthetically, that the injury lightly referred to in the current article, sustained in the interests of this journal and for a time fearfully considered, has yielded satisfactorily to treatment and an early recovery is confidently anticipated. that old three legs beat the rest of the field to the wire. Applications of ice water, judiciously applied, may make the fourth leg equal to the strain. But should our noble steed's leg pain him, he'll quit cold and our money will be in the drainage canal. But "improving the breed," as it is laughingly called, has always been a terrific gamble, with the odds eight to five (or better) that you lose. Polo fans heard the best news in many a year when Major Fredric McLaughlin announced that the much dis cussed East-West polo matches will be held here in August. The games are to be at Onwentsia on August 13, 16, and 20, and will find the cream of the country's polo players on the field. The East will be captained by Tommy Hitchcock, who has been a ten goal player since 1922, and whatever players he may pick from dozens of good men in the East. Earl Hopping, one of the longest hitters in the game, Winston Guest, who with Mike Phipps and Stewart Iglehart won the National Indoor championships here last spring, are among those he may pick. The Western team will be chosen by Louis E. Stoddard of the United States Polo Asso ciation and will probably include Eric Pedley, famous west coast star, Cecil Childers and Cecil Smith from Texas, all as good as any men that the East may produce. Fans are hoping that some of the local high goal men will be able to win a place on the western team. I would be a great deal more enthusiastic about these matches, as I have been looking forward to them for some time, if I had not tried to stop a polo ball with my front teeth in a practice game last week. It will prob ably be some weeks before the game regains its old hold over me. But August 13 will find me close to the boards watching these two great teams in action. Those of us who were planning trips to Meadowbrook this summer can forget our plans with a clear conscience, for Meadowbrook is being brought to Chi cago. Major McLaughlin deserves unstinted credit for the excellent job he has done in arranging this series for Chicago. The Indoor Championships last spring and these coming matches will do much toward making this section a see'pnd Long Island polo standards. More polo is being played in and around Chicago, fehan ever before. The El Ranchito team from Texas has beaten Oakbrook de cisively, Ft. Sheridan has defeated Onwentsia, and Olympia Fields has been taken into camp by Flossmoor and the Oklahoma Yellowjack- ets. Flossmoor, Harvey and Olympia Fields have formed teams and are playing regularly on the South Side.,,,, The 122nd and ,j$4th Field Artillery Units, after getting off" to -a late start, are playing on the North Shore Polo Field. No word has come from Arthur Naylor at Leona Farms, but I understand that they are contemplating Sunday games. Naylor has trained a fine string of ponies for the coming season. Much interest has been drawn to a suggested local tournament, the winners, or some representa tive all-star team to meet one of the better Eastern teams. This game, if scheduled for the late fall, should draw as large a gate as any athletic event has ever drawn in the city. Now that Chicago has become polo-con scious, a tournament that would give all the local players a chance to show their wares should be in order. If tjhis should not be possible, everyone is hoping for some first rate inter-club games. > The World's Fair Horse Show, to be held in the fall, is already re ceiving a great many enquiries as to classes, prizes, and entry fees. Prominent breeders and owners from all over the country have promised to exhibit, and the entry list should be one of the largest of any show ever held in this country. Mrs. Carl Hanna of Cleveland has offered the trophies won by the late Sen ator Mark Hanna, at the World's Fair in '93, to be re-awarded. Major General Frank Parker put on a mid summer horse show at Fort Sheridan over the Fourth of July week-end. Besides this sum mer show, Sheridan will hold their usual Horse Show later in the fall. The regular summer shows held by country clubs and horse organizations have all been cancelled this year for financial reasons, as few shows are able to pay their own expenses, and backing is hard to find in these times. July, 1933 35 . ¦my< THE PRIZE PACKAGE OF THE SEASON "DINNER AT EIGHT"— AT THE GRAND OPERA HOUSE. THE KAUFMAN- FERBER EXPOSE OF A DINNER PARTY WHICH SHOWS WHAT HAPPENS TO HOSTS AND GUESTS BEFORE THEY EVEN CLIMB INTO THEIR EVENING CLOTHES. BESIDES THE PLAYWRIGHTS, YOU WILL RECOGNIZE MARGARET DALE, CHARLES TROWBRIDGE, ANN ANDREWS, FRANK MANNING, PAUL HARVEY, JANE WYATT, CRANE WILBUR, CONSTANCE COLLIER, AUSTIN FAIRMAN AND JUDITH WOOD. Two Aces, Two Jacks, Two Deuces Three Pairs of Plays Dealt Out of Current Theatrical Deck THE midsummer influx of drama lends itself to the purposes of facile cata loguing. Metaphor is given free rein to follow a number of paths. When things come by twos it is hard to stay away from Noah's Ark with the suggestion that Dinner at Eight and The Gay Divorce are high soar ing eagles; Hired Husband and Her Majesty the Widow agreeable bluebirds; The Man Who Changed His Tsjame and Tomorrow Turns Bac\ cacophonous turkeys. Or, to re turn to the vernacular of the theatre; two are hits; two may catch on; two are flops. Every so often a playwright conceives a new pattern into which he can weave time- tried threads of drama; perhaps a locale such as Vicky Baum used in Grand Hotel; a pro fession such as Elmer Rice employed in Coun sellor 'Ot'Law; a social episode such as Edna Ferber and George Kaufman utilize in Dinner at Eight. In the latter play, doing excellent business at the Grand, there is a minimum of profound drama and a maximum of grand theatre. True, these seasoned authors have shrewdly observed several characters, as for instance the passe movie actor, and have written a deal of witty dialogue. But the success of their work hinges largely on their piquant dramaturgic technique of exhibiting the interwoven lives of a conventional dinner party group. They have suggested the pat terns for half a dozen commonplace plays and by clever manipulation have achieved a varie gated and exciting evening. The train which brought this good company from New York to Chicago contained not a ham in a car load. Important names are as prevalent in the dramatis personae as in the list of honorary pall bearers at a millionaire's funeral. The episode with the most dramatic guts concerns the aforesaid cinema has-been and the sweet young thing who loves him. Crane Wilbur and Jane Wyatt bring effective reality to this ironic situation. Their moments are as near as the play comes to the stuff of authentic drama. Into the realms of high comedy which characterize other phases of the mix-up Constance Collier, Ann Andrews and Margaret Dale bring the satisfying fruits of wide experience. Along lines of more bois terous comedy the bellowing Paul Harvey and the blondine Judith Wood make a dramatic virtue of vulgarity. Add the likable Charles Trowbridge, the oleaginous Austin Fairman, the distinguished Ethel Intropidi, and you have a cast of outstanding excellence. The other high card in this month's theatrical hand is The Gay Divorce, in which Fred Astaire showed the world that he could function even though his sister is now raising the level of the British nobility. Fred did not come out here with his success, but instead Messrs. Wiman and Weatherly hired Joseph Santley. And as good a choice as any. Mr. Santley looks hardly a day older than when I saw him in By William C. Boyden A Modern Eve during my college days. He dances with limber abandon, sings a little, acts crisply and makes love with all the old fervor. The wisenheimers who saw the production in New York naturally yearn for Astaire, but most of us untravelled fellows will be content with what Joe Santley has to offer. While speaking of performers (and, after all, the actors make or break this kind of show), Luella Gear commands rich critical tribute. Here is a comedienne with rare quali ties; a dry, crisp delivery which makes witty lines seem wittier; a method of talking her songs which wastes no drop of lyric juice; a handsome, distinguished appearance; a person ality of poise and warmth. Dorothy Stone is opposite Santley. The girl has taken on con siderable allure since she left the innocuous atmosphere of her father's pleasant gambols. Other effectives are G. P. Huntley, Jr., fol lowing easily in the footsteps of his suave father; Eric Blore, a comic Britisher whose accent could be cut with a knife; Erik Rhodes, who makes the part of a hired divorce cor respondent humorous where it might have been unpleasant. These charming people, together with a dozen of the creamiest chorus girls ever gath ered on one stage, project the gay, witty, spicy, sophisticated material of The Gay Divorce with verve and esprit. It is a show well cal culated to the holiday mood of the thousands who are filling Chicago's streets with ornate and unfamiliar automobile license tags. The music of Cole Porter is worldly and catching, especially the by-now familiar Tvjght and Day; the dancing is fast and different, even without the transcendent ability of Fred Astaire; the libretto has rarely been equalled for stinging wit and flowing continuity. The Gay Divorce, with Dinner at Eight, gives the Town some really cosmopolitan entertainment. One hot week-end three candidates appeared on the local dramatic horizon seeking to ladle up some of the gravy oozing from the World's Fair crowd. Harry Puck, one of the most versatile of Chicago's adopted sons, is presenting himself and half a dozen other nice young people in a pleasant frivole entitled Hired Husbands (Studebaker). Aimed at the audiences which kept The Family Upstairs here so long, Harry's venture is in the field of farce, deriving from such operas of mistaken identity as Charley's Aunt. You know the sort of thing. Rich uncle com ing to visit, young husband impersonates but ler, friend drafted to impersonate husband, fiancee of supposititious husband turns up, and more droll things happen. The bulk of the thespian labor is shouldered by Mr. Puck and John Gallaudet. The former is smooth, unaf fected and as likeable on the stage as he is off; the latter ingratiating and deft in farce technique. A very attractive stage set was designed by Grattan Cassidy. On the whole, Hired Husbands has an excellent chance of catching on for a run. But Puck will have competition from Paul ine Frederick who came into the Cort on the following night with a somewhat more sophis ticated domestic tidbit, yclept Her Majesty the Widow. Here the characters are on a social plane more elevated than is customary in domestic comedy. Miss Frederick is a knowing Boston relict with a son in the grips of an adventuress and a couple of suitors who glory in such toney names as Coolidge and Stuyvesant. The star has a number of attrac tive things to do. She saves her son for a nice girl, indulges herself in polite, autumnal ro mance and wears some very adequate gowns. A stage-broken group of associates are entirely satisfactory for the purposes at hand, with a special cheer for Laurette Bullivant and Fred erick Bell, two very potential young actors. Her Majesty the Widow, is not such stuff as Eugene O'Neill is prone to fabricate, but it should serve to keep the Cort open this summer. This note on The Man Who Changed His 7\[ame is a dirge and a requiem. For the play has departed the Illinois Theatre, leaving nought but doleful memory in its wake. The late Edgar Wallace was resppnsible for the manuscript. Mr. Wallace had a reputation for speed in literary produc tion. This drama probably took up a week of his time. Half that period is a fair guess for the time expended in assembling this particu lar production. The sloppiness of the whole affair was an insult to the first night audience. The second night audience, if any, were well warned by the daily press notices. With a cast of smoothly varnished Britishers the business might possibly have afforded mild entertain ment. With James Hall, a movie juvenile whose sole histrionic asset is a personality smile and who, moreover, had only a bowing acquaintance with his lines, The Man Who Changed His T^ame was both on the stage and in the stalls an evening of twitching and squirming. Marcelite Englander is reported to be a successful insurance woman. She must have many policyholders, for the Selwyn was crowded on the opening of her play Tomor- row Turns Bac\. It must be assumed that in presenting this drama as professional entertain ment the author is, like Mr. Pickwick, travel ling at her own expense. What inexperienced playwrights do not realize is that a play is a piece of merchandise which must have expert appraisal. With all their short-comings the seasoned producers of the theatre are the ones to judge what is merchantable dramatic mate rial. Tomorrow Turns Bac\ could not find customers at a theatrical rummage sale. Lloyd Lewis, writing in my favorite daily paper, opines that "it is always better to have written a bad play than to have written no play at all." For once I find myself in disagreement with a very wise critic. July, 1933 37 ¦ --v.

SI V I One Mai Winnowing the h By Milton With Photographs b ON the ancient and honorable, but un tenable, theory that everyone is en titled to his own opinion, this reporter took a whack at reviewing such of the set- pieces of the Fair as he had been able to look at prior to the deadline for last month's Chicagoan. Continuing to operate along these lines, if it takes all summer, he presents herewith, respectfully requesting the reader (or readers, if it is not immodest of him) to be ever mindful that it is only one man's slant, another compendium of thumbs-ups, thumbs- downs, and thumbs-horizontals on A Century of Progress: Worst name a Fair ever had: A Cen tury of Progress. There is no second award, the winner in this division taking the win, place and show money. Place where one man would spend the SUMMER: The Days of '49. This spot is the realest and the most authentic concession at the Fair. Who conceived it, who built it, and who stocked it with characters that come right out of Deadeye Dic\, I don't know. Who provided the titles (e.g., the newspaper office: The Gold Gulch Self Coc\er), who provided the placards (e.g., Gentlemen Dancers Are Requested to Check Hardware with Bar tender), I don't know. But to an old habitue of the La Junta, Colo., calaboose, the Days of '49 is a little bit of the ould sod. The prin cipal saloon has a cowboy lament-singer who offers to sing two ballads for every one of Carl Sandburg's. Incidentally, the Days of '49, which is located in that stunted south end of the grounds, was the first concession at the Fair to go into receivership. Most novel amusement stunt of the Fair: The pilot-it-yourself airplane in front of a concession known as the Air Show. For 25c, you can get strapped into a cockpit, have your trembling hands fastened to real controls, and get all the thrills and horrors of piloting an airplane, with the sole exception of being able to fall and get killed. This ride (the plane is fastened between the prongs of a sort of wishbone planted in the ground, but the body of the plane is free to make every pos sible sort of slip, slide and turnover) is the only amusement feature in the whole Fair that represents a distinct advance over the high- ride stunts of the last twenty years. The Sky- Ride (the price has been knocked down to 25c in the A. M., but even with that it will not pay for itself) is far from being a Supreme Thrill, and far from being a new departure. The, cars crawl. Because they are called "rocket cars," the whole nation got the idea that they would rocket, and the only thrill, if you are easily thrilled, is accidental. When the cars ride over a cable support, they teeter a little on the cables. This is because the cables could not be made as taut as the engineers had intended. But the Sky-Ride's press agent is a friend of mine, and I recommend it highly. Nakedest ladies among all the naked ladies show: Miss America, on the Midway, and Visions of Art (I think it is called) in n s Slant Wheat at the Fair i S . Mayer b> A. George Miller Paris. The appeal in these spectacles, and in other girl shows, mostly frauds, on the grounds, is purely salacious, and I hope the W. C. T. U., or whoever the good people are who interest themselves in such items, will devote the en tire summer trying to put them out of busi ness. I hope, I might add, that they try in vain, because while it is deplorable that such things are what the public wants — or what the public wants for lack of something even wick eder — it is none the less true that such things are what the public wants, and the public should get what it wants. The reform crowd may shout that naked women constitute a de generate spectacle, but in doing so they indict a very fair percentage of the human race, which, as the gate receipts of the Paris con cession will testify, just loves it. The Paris concession is pretty bawdy, in spots, but then so was Custom House Place, which was what you might call an annex to the Fair of '93. It is a bit disconcerting to a man who likes to see justice dealt out with an even hand that such a place as Paris should succeed while such a place as the Horticultural Building languishes, and that this is the case simply be cause the people who promoted Paris did their . damnedest to cater to the very cheapest, and most inclusive, instincts of the species, while the people who promoted the Horticultural » Building, and the Fair itself, did their damn edest to cater to the noblest, and most electric, instincts of the species. There is, of course, no blame to be levied, and no censure, but I hope that Mr. Rebori, the gentleman architect and promoter of Paris, who once told me about his plans for it and said, "None of this bare stuff," has pockets in his shroud. Gentlest, serenest, loveliest spot in the Fair: Horticultural Building. (The Belgian Village was my candidate for this award last month, but it has since become crowded and loud and successful, although still, in the far corners, charming.) This World's Fair had no money for three rather essential features of life: music, nature, art. No rich corporation or group of rich corpora tions could be found to subsidize an exhibit of any of the three. The Friends of Music tried to raise a fund to endow music for the Fair and failed. Dr. Harshe and Chauncey McCormick used their Art Institute to endow art, and they will get their reward in heaven if I have to write a letter to a guy I know up there. Nature, which the philosophers tell us we should extol instead of exterminate, went begging for a sponsor. The sponsor appeared » in the form of Mr. Sam Ettelson, co-mayor with "Big Sam the Builder" Insull of the city of Chicago from 1915 to 1923 and from 1927 . to 1931. Mr. Ettelson is not the sort of man George Washington was, but he does love such side-shows of nature as flowers, trees and me andering brooks. Mr. Ettelson and his crowd built the Horticultural Building with some four or five acres of woods and gardens in back of it — facing the open lake — and they have re stored nature to its pristine (Turn to page 66) PARIS — AH, YES, PARIS — MOST TALKED OF RENDEZVOUS ON THE GROUNDS, WHERE ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN PARIS IS LIKELY AS NOT TO HAPPEN AND SOME THINGS THAT DO NOT ARE SURE TO, A CHARMING COUNTERFEIT WITHAL.

BARBARA STANWYCK GEORGE RAFT RUBY KEELER July, 1933 The Six R's A Note on the Personalization of Education By Ruth G . Bergman THREE new r's appear to be slipping into the curriculum of the progressive American school. They aren't presented to the pupils in print, neatly bound in cloth; no teacher assigns them, two problems at a time; but reason, reality and romance are ob viously grafting new backbone into the old trinity of reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic. You may quarrel with my terminology, but just as mathematics by any other name would be as exact, so the three r's are among those present, no matter what you choose to call them. The desirability of improvement in schools is too obvious to necessitate any detailed in quiry into the causes of the present changes. Undoubtedly, many of them are repercussions of the explosions occurring in adult society. Perhaps our educators have recently looked on our business, financial and civic leaders, the products of their schools, and found that they were not so good. Fortunately, the changes are not simply indirect results of the decreased revenues of the schools and the in creased responsibilities of the teachers, but are taking place consciously and in a scientific spirit as a result of many studies and experi ments in education. On the borderline between cause and effect is the recognition of the fact that not all schoolboys are created equal mentally. If the school is to cope with admitted variations in the kind and degree of pupils' ability the curriculum must have greater flexibility. In theory, the old system was somewhat like a bottling department, with the schools pouring into the pupils a uniform 3.2 education. The trouble with the scheme was that the bottles weren't uniform. Variations in capacity and design resulted in great inequalities in the value of the products when sealed, stamped with diplomas and delivered to the world. Latterly, intelligence tests, aptitude tests, and the simple powers of observation that reveal some individuals are blonds and some are bru nettes, have indicated that pupils differ also in interests, characteristics and skill. Instead of trying to remodel the student to fit a rigid curriculum the modern school is attempting to modify the curriculum in such a way as to give suitable instruction to every type of pupil. Like every good school of every generation, its purpose is to assist in the process of making good citizens. Where the progressive school of today, and probably tomorrow, diverges from yesterday's model is in its method and its conception of those at tributes that make for good citizenship. If the college graduate is the ideal American and the colleges require, among other things, four years of Latin and three years of Greek, the schools perform a major part of their func tion when they turn out students who are able to conjugate and decline in all tenses, moods and cases. This is an extreme state ment of the case but the fact remains that in the past schools have had a fixed ideal based on a stated amount of factual knowledge and represented by units and credits. The school now in the process of evolution, on the other hand, is concerned less with facts than with their application to every day experience. It places its emphasis not on preparation for col lege or life but on life itself; it considers the school not as a separate phenomenon — the splendid isolation even of the class room is gone now — but as an integral part of the whole social organism. The changes are vital but not, as a rule, sufficiently revolutionary to alarm the most conservative parents or satisfy the most radi cal teachers. The original three r's are still the staff of education. A traveler in this world, however, needs more equipment than a single — or even triple — staff; thus the addition of the three new r's. To imply that the school of the past did not teach reasoning is heresy, but that doesn't mean that it isn't, to some extent, true. For every history teacher who stressed names and dates, how many helped their pupils to see the real significance of these facts and to interpret the future in the light of the world's past? Fortunately, this point is not covered by statistics. How many children, groaning under the imposition of tables: multiplication tables, division tables, weight and measure tables, ever heard any bet ter reason for the task than that nobody would pass who hadn't learned them? Rods, fur longs, leagues, gills, pints, minutes, degrees, were meaningless steps to the next grade more often than they were symbols of man's efforts to measure and weigh and apportion the goods in which he dealt, a means by which he ex panded his primitive system of barter to the complicated commercial organization of civi lization. The vivid human story behind these terms and these tables escaped the attention of the children. In regard to tables, it was their 's not to reason why, their 's but to learn or cry. In the progressive school, factual knowledge must always be given significance. It is not enough to know that Chicago is situated on Lake Michigan. The geography lesson must include the reasons why it was logical for a city to be founded there and how the natural resources of the region combined to stimulate its growth. It is pretty dull work to memo rize the fact that the Mississippi River has its source in Minnesota and empties into the Gulf of Mexico, but such information develops into a memorable epic when into it is woven the story of the use to which the river is put, of its effect on agriculture and commerce, which is, ultimately, its effect on men and women and boys and girls, such as the ones now studying the subject. Thus the pupil not only learns to reason but at the same time the school is integrated to life. Instead of being placed in a situation dissimilar from those encountered outside the school room, expected to meet requirements unlike those of what is known as real life, the pupil learns by solving actual problems in a practical way. A gardening project may involve not only botany but also a little chem istry, mathematics, spelling and language. In stead of grumbling, as millions have grumbled, over the meeting of Mr. A., who can walk six miles an hour, and Mr. B., whose pace is only half that fast, the future gardener enjoys figuring how many roots he can plant at a given distance in an actual row. Botanical terms come readily to his tongue when they are learned by observation of his own garden. Finding an immediate use to which he can put his knowledge makes him enjoy the process of acquiring it just as he enjoys the practice that adds to his skill on the baseball diamond or tennis court. Mental agility becomes as desirable as muscular coordination as the pupil perceives its function outside the school room and its rewards beyond the report card. Real ism replaces the artificiality of the piecemeal system of studying history and economics and English and mathematics and science as sepa rate entities without any apparent relationship. Romance, in the school, has nothing to do with sentiment; neither is it contradictory in a system devoted to real ism. The fact that the school room situation is made as lifelike as possible may only serve to emphasize the wonder of life itself. The study of language becomes not a tortuous and torturing excursion into syntax and vocabu lary but the romance of man's effort to com municate with man, first in terms of concrete, objective things, later refined to include intan gible thoughts and emotions. Science, taught, not as a matter of hypotheses and formulae but as the unfolding story of man's struggle to understand the fundamental laws of nature and to cope with them, even science may be a substitute for the wild west thriller; and abstract mathematics, when viewed as a mode of thought, becomes imbued with life. While the examples cited above are drawn from the work in the primary grades, the application of this new philosophy of educa tion is not limited to them but extends from the nursery school to the university. The famous "new plan" — now nearly two years old as far as operation is concerned — of the University of Chicago, is based on the same recognition of the differences between students, the same dissatisfaction with a system that measured education in terms of credits rather than the ability to think and the integrated knowledge of essential subjects; the same de sire to guide students rather than to drive them. This point of view is expressed in all the salient features of the new plan. It has abandoned the old system of grades and cred its and required attendance of required courses; the student's (Continued on page 75) 50 The Chicagoan Revelry By Night King George Broadcasts — The Fair on the Air By Parker W h e a t l e y KING GEORGE was the month's most interesting radio per sonality. Perhaps his success on the air is due to the infre- quency of his appearance. He is always a joy for me to hear, and his dedication of the London conference was no exception. George V and Franklin Delano Roosevelt are brothers in language if not in flags. Each is distinguishable, graceful, and intimate in style. The President, however, has a slightly better record to date in inaugu rating successful ventures. Whatever may happen to or at the World Economic Conference, the King is still a good broadcaster, and a most creditable representative of any broadcasting system. Of England and America, I was impressed particularly during the month of brides and conferences by the trans-oceanic conversation broadcast one Sunday morning by Walter Lippman and John Maynard Keynes. The latter spoke from London, the former from New York. Although there was a little interference when Mr. Keynes spoke, he could be understood reasonably well if closely attended. Walter Lippman, of course, came through very clearly. This was one of the most important of the two-way international broadcasts yet attempted, and foreshadowed many possibilities. Replies were immediate, so effectively had the NBC engineers worked out the technical details. When and if there is ever another economic conference, it might well be conducted by means of radio. The democratic importance is obvious. If you recall the recent presidential caucuses in Chicago you know how effectively the microphone unmasks the politician. In our own city, broadcasting has been concerned with A Century of Progress. Nothing truly outstanding has yet been achieved, how ever. The fantastic city on our lake-front is a bit difficult to reduce to words, announcing being what it is. Here is one pictorial event in recent world history that will defy that growing menace of the last decade in the century it celebrates. I mean the sensitive and prying microphone. Speeches there have been in plenty, and more are sched uled. The folk music which occasionally figures in the commemoration of national days has been interesting. Most probably the high-light of the entire Fair season, excepting the Piccard flight, will have been the broadcast of the Romance of a People on July 3. Impressive and beautiful, in spite of radio announcers. Television could trans form this 1933 wonder-show into a fact, but not audible broadcast ing. And television must wait upon the next boom. The Fair has brought in its wake a number of radio commentators. Before the opening, NBC scheduled a series of suave, travel-style descriptions of the century's carnival by Burton Holmes.' And more recently, the husky-voiced "Headline hunter," Floyd Gibbons, has been assailing us at the rate of 225 words a minute or thereabouts. His is a racy, humanized style strictly for home con sumption. Long famous for his ability to make a great story out of nothing, Floyd can make a ride on the chutes seem a major event in life. This is what we need, maybe, more joy in little things. Regard less, he is doing an excellent bit of press-agenting for the Palmer House, and pleases all by such democratic little tricks as talking about the smiling black boy who calls the taxis. Mr. Gibbons knows how to make everybody happy— well, almost everybody. Just who decided that the Palmer House should have a Colonel I don't know, but it has one, Bradford by name, who apparently typifies hospitality. Perhaps this is the time to say something about the news reporters on the air. Edwin C. Hill and Boake Carter are most important of the regularly scheduled broadcasters. The former's Human Side of the News is worth hearing. Informative and simple, his delvings into the past are frequently fascinating narratives. He talks directly and naturally, and has caught the knack of person-to-person broadcasting. His voice is good, though not outstanding. Mr. Hill became famous on the air, I think, at the time of the Lindbergh kidnapping. Boake Carter I like more. He details news as if he were a roman tic actor with the world's finest voice, and speaks the language as few on the air do. Lately subject to George V, his speech is highly ac cented, and refreshingly correct. He has the grand style, and the best voice of any newspaper man in my experience. As an artist he DAN AND SYLVIA OF THE ETHER. has distinction. Sponsor Philco (of Stokowski also) deserves notice for its courage and taste in choosing Boake Carter. 1v1y recurrent speculation concerning the govern ment's interest in radio has alighted upon a fact. As you know perhaps, WIBO in Chicago has been removed from the air in favor of the former WJKS at Gary. (And what a happy thought it was when the new operators of the Indiana station changed its call letters to WIND.) Perhaps you had never listened to either of the stations. The former was at the "top o' the dial," which is only a very short turn from the bottom of the dial, where the latter once resided. The first had contributed little or nothing to radio in the last few years, and the second even less. WJKS, however, had been carrying numer ous good CBS programs, which somebody's reducing salts or cold cream had kept off the air over WBBM or WGN. But reception difficulties interfered with the Gary station's influence in Chicago. That is, until the Federal Radio Commission ruled WIBO off the air, and granted WJKS its wave-length. The theory of the case was based on the fact that Illinois is over quota (quota previously decided upon in Davis Act of 1929, but about which I shan't confuse you), and Indiana is under quota. So the Commission decided that it was just and proper for Illinois to lose a non-distinguished station, and Indiana gain one. WIBO owners took the case to the Court of Appeals, which reversed the Radio Commission. WJKS went to the Supreme Court, which remanded the case, upholding the author ity of the Federal Radio Commission. And Chicago's only bond- and-mortgage-house station left the air on schedule, still fighting. The justice done seems to be largely technical, because the move in fact gives CBS another Chicago outlet. The Hoosier state seems neither to gain nor lose.

Ritchie Being the Reflections of a Layman on Attending the Second Annual Conference of the American Institute of Interior Decorators. WE'RE doing it all wrong. Take the case of Jennie Tyler. Jennie changed her name to Jane when she was married — it sounded better. She's Jane Townsend now. The old Tyler place stood on the corner of National Avenue and Main Street, that big old-fashioned square frame house with the cupola on top, and the little porches stuck on here and there, and the gingerbread ornaments. Jane never knew there was any other kind of house to live in until after she was married and had been abroad and seen a few Italian villas, French Provincial farm-houses, and English Georgian homes. Since then she's noticed that these dif ferent types of European houses have been numerously reproduced in America, but I'm never quite sure that even today when she's talking about one kind of house, she doesn't mean the other. Well, anyway, the first thing Jane did when she inherited her great-uncle Billy's fortune, was to decide to build a house. "I know just the kind of house I want," she said, and showed me a strange looking plan of the ground floor which she had laboriously worked out on a correspondence card, and an upstairs whose design was totally unrelated to the downstairs. "I like a rather rambling, informal sort of place on the inside, with steps up here, and steps down there, from room to room" (the plan had no main staircase whatever), "and little nooks" (this was a remnant of the old cozy- corner idea in the house on National Avenue), "but on the outside, I want it to look like this — dignified and impressive, you know," and she showed me a picture of a perfectly balanced Georgian house she'd cut out of a magazine. "You'd better get an architect right away," I said. When I danced with Tom Brown at the next country club dance, I learned she had taken my advice. "Your friend Jane's going to build a house," he told me. "Yes, I saw the plans." "They were very strange," replied Tom with a far away look in his eye. The next time I saw Jane, she was coming up the walk with a great roll of blue prints under her arm. "These are my house plans," she twittered radiantly. "Tom Brown made them, and I wanted you to see them." We spread them out on the library table. "They're not much like the ones I had in mind, but Tom said I couldn't have nooks and cozy-corners. They're old-fashioned, and wouldn't go with the type of house I want, and I had to have a front hall and a staircase which I'd left out of my plans altogether, and the upstairs is all different. But he did put the library up two steps and, well, I guess it really is better, don't you?" "It's much more up-to-date," I said, "and more professional." "Well," Jane sighed, "furnishing it is going to be the next problem. You know, I'm all mixed up in my mind about what I want. What do you think of modern decoration? Now this little room here, you might take it for a bed-room, but it's going to be my upstairs sitting- room. Whatever I do with the rest of the house, I'm going to keep that room homey, and furnish it with old things from the house on National Avenue. I'm sentimental, I guess, but I want to keep Father's old Morris chair, and that steel engraving of the Stag at Bay, and Mother's little sewing rocker, and just a few of those old things, to remind me of home. But downstairs, you know, instead of this sun-porch here, I believe I'll have an indoor rock garden. I've never seen an indoor rock garden, have you? It would be just a little bit different." "If I were you, I'd get an interior decorator who knows what you ought to have for your house," I warned her. "You have plans here for a lovely, simple Georgian type of house, and if you go mixing everything up by yourself, it won't look right. Besides there's a lot to know about backgrounds and period furnishings and all that sort of thing, and as long as you're going to spend so much money, you'd better get some expert advice." "I believe you're right," said Jane. "I'll go right down now and see Mary Mathews. She decorated the Woman's Club, and the Hen dricks house and ... I still think modern is rather different, don't you?" The next time I saw Tom Brown, I noticed a certain hunted look in his expression. "Your friend Jane's driving me crazy," he said. "She came to see me with her decorator the other day, after we'd got the framework of the house all up, and tells me now she wants to convert one of the upstairs bed-rooms into a living room, and it (Continued on page 77) THE OFFICE OF COMMISSIONER HARRYS.

THE CANADIAN EXHIBIT, TRAVEL AND TRANSPORTATION BUILDING. IT WAS ALL DONE BY HAND FIFTY YEARS AGO. THE FIREMEN AND THEIR HAND-DRAWN HOSE CART DASH ON IN THE WINGS OF A CENTURY PAGEANT. Wings, Keels, and Wheels Travel on the Lake Front By Lucia Lewis OTHER summers those of us who couldn't get away had nothing to do but curl up with a bunch of travel folders or old Geographies and let the wistful tears roll down our cheeks. This summer a lot of us don't care about getting away. But if we do and can't, or if we do and are going to some time, or even if we don't give a hang about anything — we can get the thrill of a century (Sky-Ride concessionaires to the contrary notwithstanding) by gallop ing down to the south end of the Fair Grounds. This is a nice end, by the way, spacious and airy, beautifully serene after the tinsel of the Midway. Here the chameleon Travel and Transport building, which we have been watching through its many changes these many months, houses one of the swellest shows at A Century of Progress. The exhibits are well arranged and have glamour for anyone who gets a kick out of the toot of a steamship or the roar of a locomotive. What's more the building's high dome makes for unusual coolth. If you are extra overheated you can always duck into the air-cooled Pullmans which are on display here in all their trim modernity of aluminum, pleasant yellow, green and blue color schemes, and furnish ings which use all the best principles of modern functional beauty. I he best way to do this show, however, is to see first the one across the street. In a little over an hour the Wings of a Century paints a picture of the advance of transportation which deserves many adjectives — vivid, exciting, romantic, authentic, beauti ful and complete — something to set your spine tingling and patriotism seething. The grandstand of this pageant faces the deep blue of the evening lake and a tremendous stage flanked on each side by white pylons, in each of which sits a reader to interpret the action. There's plenty of action. The earliest pathfinders, hunters, trappers, Indians, priests move by on their journeys, Daniel Boone's caravan has a battle with the Indians, and the white man's growing mastery is dramatically illustrated. The scene shifts to the harbor of New York where the citizens gather to cheer the first small steamboat, the Clermont. Then down the Erie Canal, where we see the gay life on the freighters and on the very "de luxe" canal passenger boats. The next episode shows the harbor of Baltimore in 1835 with the great Baltimore Clipper just in with a gang of slaves, all the gentry driving down in their coaches and chaises, and gay young bloods cantering in for the welcome. second interlude. J. he Parade of the Iron Horse is shown in the Little Tom Thumb, the first locomotive of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the one which raced the gray mare (the gray mare won) chuffs down the tracks across the stage. It is followed by the De Witt Clinton of the Mohawk and Hudson (now New York Central) with its coaches on tracks but still built like the horse-drawn coaches of the period. The first transcontinental loco motive, Northern Pacific's Minneton\a of 1869 chuffs by, and the parade goes on — down to famous 999 which set the world record of 112J/2 miles an hour and can still toot a challenge to the monsters of today. Interlude after interlude brings to life the tales we remember dimly from our schooldays. The Gold Rush and the covered wagons, the pony express, outlaws holding up a Wells Fargo express coach, the bloody and arduous building of the Union Pacific and Atlantic Pacific and the driving of the golden spike at Promontory Point; Carter Harrison and the Infanta Eulalie inspecting thejirst horseless carriage at the 1893 Fair with high wheeled bicycles careening haughtily about the coaches; a parade of early automobiles; the bleak dunes of Kitty Hawk and the crazy contraption of the Wrights; and the epi logue with motorcycles, tremendous trucks and sleek new cars, one of the biggest of the new locomotives tearing across before newly under standing eyes. It's a spectacle that will make you bounce to your feet enthusiastically when the Star Spangled Banner peals out. Nothing has been neglected to make this a perfect pageant. The reading of the script is clear and beautiful, and the script itself is sonorous and dramatic without being lushly sentimental. The whole thing has been done by experts — written by Edward Hungerford, the travel and railroad authority and writer, staged and directed by Helen Tieken and by Raymond O'Brien, who was a shining light of the American Opera Company and recently with the Shuberts. The musical score by Hamilton Forrest (you know, Camille) cleverly weaves in the old railroad and pioneer melodies. The hundreds of actors have been drafted from many professional and amateur sources. The horses are beautifully handled because their riders are old circus people and the leader is a Texas ranger whose riding is like a poem. The locomotives whistle proudly and shrilly because the engineers are the senior ranking men in their companies, some of them the original engineers who took these trains on their maiden runs. They (the men, not the engines) are having the time of their lives showing off their pets. The engineers and the youngsters in the cast have probably the best time. The youngsters were recruited from the shortest sixteen- year-olds in Chicago high schools and now and then, on the spur of the moment, add a bit of business of (Continued on page 72) THE LITTLE MINNETONKA.

You can have just what you want within your own income, if you use your head about it, and the result will be entirely worth while if you think the whole scheme out beforehand. Women are awfully apt to spend their money for clothes in a hit or miss fashion. They are pleased by something that catches their eye. They are consumed with an overwhelming desire for the pos session of just that particular object and no other. They buy it and then find that it fits in only haphazardly with their collection of clothes. Now a travel wardrobe is a particular sort of collection, but it can be selected with a view to carrying over into everyday life after the period of travel — a mere interlude — is over. It would be too out landish an extravagance, in this day of tight money, to buy a collec tion of clothes for travel only. That is extravagance unknown to our present age. But if you buy a good looking travel suit in light wool tweed or heavy cotton tweed, it will serve you well through the days of summer flitting here and there and carry over excellently into the late summer and early fall days at home. OAY you are visiting A Century of Progress, for instance. A suit of this general type fills all the purposes of travel as well as some of the daytime needs when you are resident in Chicago. It fills in the chinks, as it were, making a solid background for the travel wardrobe. It does not muss easily. It lives through rain storms and through excessive heat, being always that costume you can fall back upon when all others fail. Added to this you should have a sheer suit, meaning a two or three piece costume of heavy chiffon or light-weight silk. This is good for all-day wear when you are in a city. It does for afternoons in the country. It fills in admirably and, again, its mussing proclivities are at a minimum. Take it out of the bag and hang it up for a few hours — it will emerge as good as new. You will need some sport clothes. Those simple cotton dresses are the delight of women this season — either the shirtwaist sort or those made in one piece. Take as many of them along as you think you will need, depending upon the length of your stay. Then think of bathing suits and beach or pool suits. These fill a portion of every day for the woman on a vacation. It is well to have two bathing suits, so that one can dry out while you are wearing the other. And remember that simple beach dresses are smarter, this season, than pajamas, though there are still pajama suits, with long coats, that hold their own in the matter of style. Informal attire of this sort saves your other clothes and you are always comfortable when costumes of this nature are a part of the dress picture. For evening and dinner dresses, select those materials which are proof against creasing, meaning that pressing and steaming will not have to be a part of your worries. When your bags are unpacked and you must needs rush into social or sight seeing activities chiffons are good or soft crepes, and laces are the best of all. Any of these "hang out" satisfactorily. If you can manage it, have jackets for your evening frocks. They help in so many ways. They protect you from evening chills. They transform evening dresses into dinner dresses at a moment's notice and generally find their place in the night life of whatever environ ment you happen to find yourself in. Never has there been a fashion which so wisely adapted itself to the varying needs of women in the throes of meeting many sorts of society. Hats are an absorbing question when it comes to the travel ward robe. The idea is to choose soft ones, which will pack flat and be as little care as possible as you move from place to place. This year there are so many soft turbans and even (Continued on page 68) WHITE CREPE IS DISTINGUISHED BY CHIFFON FLOWERED SLEEVES, FROM MARTHA WEATHERED. THE GAY RED AND BLUE PLAID BEACH DRESS IS BY LESCHIN. July, 1933 57 Seventy Degrees Cool Or, Where to Hide Out When Company Comes SAY what you will of the Fair, as you will, anyway, it was a wise man who made the deal that left the business of cinema entertainment safely in the hands of the loop showmen, who know so well how to attend to it, and out of reach of the conces sionaires. Not only is the arrangement kind to visitors, who could scour the world and find no finer motion picture theatres, but so is it friendly to home folks, who, after all, had to have some place left to go, on plea of busi ness or something, when the succession of house guests became unmanageable. There is, nor ever has been, no better hide-out than a cool cinema wherein schooled attaches con spire to suppress every hint of the here and now in favor of the there and then of the screen. Thanks is given. If, then, you would escape for a little while from the pleasures that lie, indubitably, in piloting pleased visitors about the Fair Grounds, go at once to the Oriental (at press time the picture seemed destined to be there all summer) and resign eye and ear to the charming and tuneful cast of Gold Diggers of 1933. A good many of the members are those who made Forty-Second Street an his torical document — Ruby Keeler and Dick Pow ell, for two — but Warren William, Aline MacMahon, Joan Blondell, Guy Kibbee and Ginger Rogers, together with the sombrely up roarious Ned Sparks, add much that is not mere music. Too, there's plot enough, and smart enough dialogue, to distinguish this as the musical comedy picture of all time. If you can remember, while it's going on, that Aunt Minnie's due on the 9:17 and Uncle George hasn't been home or heard from for the past three nights, don't scold me — see a doctor. Or, if you've seen Gold Diggers of 1933, as you must have, drop in upon The Warrior's Husband and lose touch with not only the present but the present civilization. The war rior's husband turns out to be Ernest Truex, the warrior Mariorie Rambeau. queen of the Amazons and mother of Elissa Landi, my per sonal nomination for the actress of the year. The censors have clipped out a little of the glib ribaldry, but most of the ideas get across and all of them are hilarious. It is well to sit close to the screen, because some of the lines, otherwise, will be lost in the laughter. Continuing among the comedies, on the theory that summer cinema is and should be essentially a laughing matter, Lee Tracy's The 'Huisance screams for your consideration. The previous Tracy comedies have been training canters. This one is the finished performance of a thoroughbred come dian. I especially recommend it to the learned Dr. Boyden and other members of the legal profession which it so roundly kids, but the man, woman or child doesn't live who can sit through it unamused. B y W ILLIAM R . W E A V E R Frank McHugh, the doughboy with the funny laugh in some of Tracy's earlier pic tures, comes into his own in Professional Sweetheart, which he quietly steals from Ginger Rogers, ZaSu Pitts, Edgar Kennedy and other competitors. McHugh is cast as press agent for a radio star and both profes sions are treated to a masterful and merciless burlesquing. McHugh's days in the support ing cast are numbered. Humor of slightly more substantial char acter occupies the Edward G. Robinson talent in The Little Giant. Ignoring his altogether timely demise, Little Caesar accepts the legal ization of 3.2 as the death rattle of the bootleg racket and buys his way into an eminently chamber-of -commerce kind of California soci ety. No one can do this kind of thing, or etch a gangster character, so well as Robinson. No one should miss this picture. Other efforts to be funny, amusing, clever or comic, were some what less successful. College Humor began well, with Bing Crosby a crooning instructor and Jack Oakie a clowning freshman, but de teriorated into a football drammer with a 14-13 victory for old Midwest. Adorable brought out a competitor for Chevalier, whose name I've forgotten, to sing songs to Janet Gaynor without great profit. Melody Cruise started out to be a swanky musical comedy in the Continental manner but didn't quite swank. Diplomaniacs, of course, had Wheeler and Woolsey, whom one likes or dislikes im mensely in whatever they choose to call their current vehicle. The going was somewhat better among the dramas, comedy-dramas and assorted fiction. Those who like nothing better than to have a good cry should not deprive themselves of a few tears over Jenny Gerhardt, Sylvia Sidney in this or any Dreiser novel, whose life is anything but a bowl of cherries, yet interesting withal. This is the only genuine sob picture of the month. The Silver Cord, an equally serious affair in which Laura Hope Crews achieves one of the finest character studies in film history, is more enjoyable, informative, credible. The Woman I Stole, with Jack Holt doing the stealing, is the picture of the month to miss if you miss but one. Warner Baxter and Elissa Landi utter clever dialogue cleverly in I Loved Tou Wednesday, which has its points. Ann Harding, Robert Montgomery, Myrna Loy, Frank Morgan and Alice Brady talk each other and their hearers to death in When Ladies Meet, which should have been left on the stage. Bebe Daniels is a little bit of all right in Coc\tail Hour, some thing for about that time of day. William Powell is his infallibly entertaining self — the actor they build the detective pic tures to fit — in Private Detective 62, having as principal aid and objective the little known but much to be heard from Margaret Lindsay. In all likelihood, this picture will make this pair one of tomorrow's stellar teams. They have, between them, everything. So, for that matter, have Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and Loretta Young, ideally opposed in a swift lit tle picture called The Life of Jimmy Dolan. But the future appears far less bright for Richard Barthelmess, whose Heroes for Sale is a particularly untimely, unpleasant and un necessary treatise on unemployment, capital ism, the dope habit, communism and the ma chine age. If it be true, as rumored, that Mr. Barthelmess chose to give his employer an extra picture this year instead of taking a cut, and if this be the picture, all parties concerned, including you and I, had better have gone fishing. Another picture of the month, mentioned in this column as a picture of last month but deferred by act of the always incomprehensible censor board, is being talked about by everyone and seen by more people, at the diminutive Castle, than have crowded that companionable playhouse since 1918. I didn't tell you, last month, that This Hude World was entitled This H<*ked Age before the censor board, in its quaint, obscure way, dictated the clearer, unmistakable title. I couldn't tell you, last month, nor could any one, that, having thus renamed the picture and passed it for exhibition, the censor board would change its mind and revoke its permit. I did tell you, though, that if you went to see the picture seeking the wrong kind of thrill you wouldn't get it, whereas you would get a good working knowledge of nudism as it is prac ticed in this country and abroad by people who believe it is good for them. That is still true. It is still true, too, though I seem to have forgotten to mention it last month, that an extremely interesting kind of motion picture, which is really quite a lot more than that, may be seen in a few highly instructive minutes for a few cents — twenty-five, I believe — at the Spoor Spectalorum on the Fair Grounds. By processes and devices far too complex for your reporter's comprehension, much less recital, an amazing reality, a sense of third dimensional completeness, is achieved upon what appears to be a flat projection surface. If your inter est in the cinema is more than shadow deep, this ought to be one of your World's Fair stops. When and if the process comes into general cinema use, it will be nice to tell the kiddies, or their kiddies, that you saw it at the Fair. As the name indicates, it is the George Spoor process that is utilized. Among the fonder hopes of your reporter and a good many other reasonably sincere admirers of the motion picture, the one that this sturdy pio neer's devotion to the cause of third-dimension photography will be rewarded with success is cherished most of all. 58 The Chicagoan HEAT RELIEF "D* Take Them Outside By The Hostess O Something Simple" is the motto that should be emblazoned in every hostess' engagement book for the summer. If your guests don't like simplicity don't have them — but you will find that they just love it, even the most stately and important ones. Some of our greatest hostess reputations are made in the good old summertime. Given a bit of a garden, a terrace, a penthouse or even a porch the rest is easy. If you can't take them outside, actu ally, you can transform an apartment living room into a cool restful spot by banishing the heavier furniture, introducing some gay bright pieces and plants and thrusting a cool drink at your sweltering friends. You can do more, of course, than merely making the place lool^ cool. This year of all years is the time to go in for air conditioning — an installation of a General Electric cooling system, for instance, is amazingly reasonable. If you don't want to do the whole place you can have units for single rooms and people will break down your doors to get at you and your precious coolth. A grand idea, if you aren't going in for an elaborate air conditioning system, is a little unit which looks like a portable radio but which washes, cools and purifies the air in the stuffiest apartment beautifully and unobtrusively. They call it Klenzair and the Swartzbaugh Company, right here in town, will dash over, set it up, and have you cooled off in a twinkle. With cool rooms and a pleasant garden the rest of the ingredients are simple. Your outdoor party is made as soon as the little "peanut stand," which you see on this page, is pushed across the lawn accom panied by the gay tinkle of its little bell. You can get this com pletely equipped as shown or equip it yourself from your own glass ware. This one, shown by Von Lengerke and Antoine, has several racks of the bril liant John Held highball glasses, old-f ashioneds and cocktails, pottery bottles and decanters, pitchers, bottle openers, bitters bottles, jars for pretzels and snacks and every thing down to amusing bar towels. Or you can do it even more simply with the folding tray table shown from Field's. This is of metal which won't be in jured by sun, rain or liquor poured on it and folds away neatly when not in use. The ice bucket is of aluminum with a bent wood handle and the iced tea set has an unusually attractive shape, with sturdy footed glasses which won't spill easily. Summer furniture is more interesting than ever before this year. If you want to splurge into the modern a bit but haven't quite enough courage to do over your whole house, the porch or terrace is the place to splurge. It's worth a trip to the World's Fair to see what the modern designers are doing with outdoor furniture. The Howell metal furniture is brilliantly designed for beauty and comfort. Heywood-Wakefield show a new kind of reed furniture with straight lines of reed panelled about the sides of amazingly capacious chairs. For a spot near the lake or seashore the metal furniture with dark blue fabric seats and back decorated in nautical designs is charming. One of the joys of this summer is the chaisette illustrated. This has a real box cushion pad of striped duck and when the back is folded down the chaisette becomes a thoroughly comfortable bed for the extra guest. Metal furniture is always a boon to gardens because it doesn't have to be toted in and out. The white pieces being used this year are really lovely. Field's have some white armchairs with the -metal done in a woven design to make them extremely comfortable. For outdoor dining the new dark linens are cool and smart — prac tical, too. Dark blue and other deep colors are appearing at all our linen counters at the demand of the modernists and the effect with white or light china, is exquisite indoors or out. If you are going in for a gay beer garden effect do look at the large checked cloths and napkins which V. L. 6? A. do in red and (Continued on page 80) LINENS AND FLANNELS Linens, Palm Beach cloths, flannels and other summer weight suitings have truly come into their own this season. The figure to the left in the illustration is wearing a semi-Norfolk linen jacket with Glen plaid flannel slacks. His hat is a light weight felt with a narrow band. The center figure wears a single-breasted, three piece linen suit and a Panama with the brim turned down. The shirt has a new collar idea; the points are moderately long, buttoned down, but the buttons are about half way up the points, thus giving a tabbed effect. The figure to the right wears a double-breasted linen suit, peaked lapel and sailor with a colored band. His tie and display handkerchief are of the same material and color — black, for instance, or maroon, deep blue or green — a new note. In the illustration to the right, the left hand figure wears a mess jacket, peaked lapels with breast pocket and buttons; a cummerbund, black (but maroon and Navy blue are permissible), plaited shirt, fold collar and narrow black tie, and dinner trousers. If the mess jacket be shawl collared there should be no buttons nor pocket. The other figure wears the old, reliable dark blue jacket with solid white flannel trousers, soft white shirt of Oxford or cheviot and solid color tie. To Read or Not to Read Assuming that You Read Anything By Marjorie Kaye FANCY reading a book on a day like this . . . blue skies, soft breezes, half a hundred places to go and hundreds of things to see and do. Or on a night like last night . . . well, you remem ber last night. I have always wondered why there isn't a closed sea son for readers of books, like there is for hunters of ducks and so on, a period of enforced abstinence, rebounding from which everybody would return to arm-chair and lamp with renewed interest, freshened eye and enriched receptivity. Probably this is unorthodox. I note that none of the high-collared ladies and collarless gentlemen who review books as a business so much as intimate that reading might become, once in a while, a great bore. Okay, then, I'm unorthodox. Wherefore, and in spite of which, I present with these ill chosen words the opinions of various books of the month set down by various contributors to The Chicagoan, adding as my own especial tip that any or all of them will be better reading come cool weather than while the sun is burning at its present pitch. Anthony Adverse — Heruey Allen — Farrar 6-? Rinehart: Here is a book of twelve hundred pages which appears rather formidable on account of its length, before you start to read it, but is pretty difficult to put down, once you are in it. The background is laid in the days ©f Napoleon and action extends over Europe, America and Africa. The sustaining of interest is really remarkable. It should rate among the best pieces of fiction of the year. — E. S. C. As the Earth Turns — Gladys Hasty Carroll — Macmillan: The gearing of life to the drivewheel that is earth, a metaphor dread enough to keep a better man than I from reading a better book than this, is the subject with which this courageous writ ing lady burdened her slender shoulders as she sat down to write. I could have told her that it was no use, that no one, certainly not I, would have read the book. I know innumerable reasons why one shouldn't write this kind of thing. Fortunately, she would not have been diverted from her purpose. It turns out that I should have been wholly wrong, that innumerable persons would read her book (they have) and that I, who certainly would not have read it, not only have but live to advocate the doing of likewise by you and each of you. As the Earth Turns, eh? I'll tell the earth. — W. R. W. A Century of Progress — Edited by Charles A. Beard — Harper 6? Bros. : Fourteen famous ladies and gentlemen, Frank O. Lowden to Jane Addams, have contributed a, well thatched record of the century now being celebrated, with much drinking of 3.2 beer and sale of all but rose colored glasses, on the lake front. It is the kind of work that one refers to as worthy, valuable, authentic. Certain of these adjectives refer all too rarely to volumes brought out or titled for the sake of timeliness. If the century interests you as greatly as its celebration, this is a book to have. — W. R. W. Congo Jake — A. C. Collodion — Kendall: If you think cinemadom has much to offer in King Kong and jungle escapades read Congo Ja\e. The tale is unembellished but if you believe in miracles and monkey shines make room on the shelf; it contains more adventure than most of us could find in several lives. Another miracle ... the author lives to tell the tale! — M. K. Count Your Blessings — Rhys Davies — Covici-Friede: You may be scorched by the unfrocking of love's divine babble, nevertheless Rhys Davies has written a powerful tale of life in the Welsh coal regions that should be read. — M. K. Grand Canary — A. J. Cronin — Little, Brown: Apart from whatever of significance may lurk between its covers, aside from points made or missed, technique employed and artistry come upon unawares, this is a book to read. Its people are people, its scenes engaging, its pace ideal for that sleepless night and its spirit perfect for that tall, tinkly glass. What more may be asked of literature? — W. R. W. Great Winds — Ernest Poole — Macmillan: The author of The Harbor (or was it The Harvest?) writes about a novel ist who is writing about latter-day restiveness, flightiness and hi-de- ho-ness and who, while he is writing, becomes pretty much mixed up in the disturbance himself. It's all a bit too solemn. — D. C. P. Julian Grant Loses His Way — Claude Houghton — Hinemann, Ltd., London: Here is an advance tip on a rare volume that will be published by Doubleday, Doran in Septem ber. Julian Grant Loses His Way is distinguishable for uniqueness. Its puissance will haunt you until you read it again, and then perhaps you will ever be haunted. Don't lose it in the rush. — M. K. Little Man What Now? — Hans Fallada — Simon 6? Schuster: As roses may grow on a dung hill, literature of deep poignancy and spiritual beauty may emanate from the soul struggles of a nation in agony. Little Man What 7<[ow has been blurbed as a post-war All i^uiet on the Western Front. The com parison is apt, albeit superficial. Both books are the first important works of previously unknown Germans with un-German names; both deal with commonplace fellows in the grip of malignant environ ment; both are scathing indictments of social phases of the last two decades. But where Remarque's treatment is bitter, harrowing and realistic; Fallada's approach is mellow, pitying and romantic. While it is hardly to be expected that the less sensational Little Man What How will have quite the vogue of All Quiet on the Western Front, it is a novel which should not be overlooked by any intelligent reader of important fiction. — W. C B. Men of Good Will — Jules Romains — Knopf: America's distinguished guest, Andre Maurois, the eminent French biographer, voices my sentiment on the book's jacket — -"His work deserves to be read ... it is important. . . . The author brings to certain aspects of our times an imagery that is both new and true." Romains' pen gives Paris the supreme functions of man. It is rebirth for those who have lived there and it is a glorious foretaste if you are a contemplator. I'm going to find the wait between volumes quite irksome. — M. K. Our Movie Made Children — Henry James Forman — Macmillan: This is probably the most unnecessary and unimportant book of the current season, despite the wide discussion of it in the newspapers. Movie columnists deride it, while the be- whiskered writers of editorials are inclined to take it seriously because of the background of scientific names which the curious authorship has mustered. It is primarily a document intended to provoke head lines and agitate the cause of the Motion Picture Research Council, which is under the executive leadership of one Reverend William Harrison Short, who is after all rather more the author than Mr. Forman. With funds from the Payne Foundation the Research Coun cil engaged a considerable array of perfectly able scientists to make some perfectly proper experiments and investigations. Their reports are said to be in preparation for publication in some eight or nine volumes; meanwhile through Mr. Forman's pen the Reverend Mr. Short delivers a verdict in advance of the evidence. The sum total of the book's findings is that bad pactures are bad, even for children: that exciting pictures excite children, and that excited children toss in their sleep. To be sure the same inquiry possibly would have resulted in an equivalent finding concerning juvenile indulgence in chili con came, roller coasters and red pop, but this job is in prosecu tion of the movies. The details of the report are largely concerned July, 1933 61 CHICAGO GOES ON THE WORLD'S FAIR, its brilliant career crowned with glory for all and divi dends for bondholders, must one day close its doors and seek its niche in history. THE LATE DEPRESSION, its woes and wastes a graying blot upon the pages of the economics books, slips grate fully into the past tense. ONLY CHICAGO goes on, agelessly, tirelessly thrusting its land frontiers for ward, its shoreline relentlessly pushing back a beaten lake. TWICE has Chicagoan pointed Man's way out of D e s p o n d — patiently, grandly in '93, spectacularly in '33. Daily it performs like service for some thousands of visiting souls, passers- through or stayers-on, inspiring, re-eri- dowing with fortitude and faith all who witness the tremendous phe nomena that is its life. NO OTHER CITY is quite like Chicago. No other magazine is quite like THE CHICAGOAN, steadfast chronicler of its every mood and movement, mirror of its modes and manners, pre-eminent ly of its smart interests. THE CHICAGOAN goes on with Chi cago. Chicago goes on with a World's Fair or without, 'neath fair skies or foul, an irresistible Town restlessly propelled along a consistently adven turous pathway to an unquestionably thrilling Destiny. TOWN AND MAGAZINE are one in their hold upon human fancy. Not everyone can dwell always in Chicago, nor, doing so, see all that makes up the throbbing life of the world'; liveliest city. But everyone can have THE CHICAGOAN with him always, and THE CHICAGOAN misses nary a pulsebeat nor fails to report it ac curately, intelligently, ciiverting'y. THE CHICAGOAN 407 S.

Some of the scientific persons engaged in the researches are reported not to be entirely satisfied with the presentation, which seems to muster all the ill and little of the good. The book belongs only on the shelves of serious students of the motion picture industry and of the curious social phenomena surrounding it. — Terry Ramsaye, Editor, Motion Picture Herald. Pageant of Youth — Irving Stone — King: An ex-faculty member pursues one group of students in their life journey and convincingly proves that he understands the social problems con fronting modern youth. His frankness makes this interesting narra tive fascinating reading and well worth your time. — C. P. A. Personality Boy — Edward Lowrey — King: It would seem a fair assumption that this lush piece of fiction was writ ten by a Princeton man, seeing as how his first fifty pages introduce two pansies, one from Harvard, the other from Yale. If so, Mr. Lowrey has been in strange company since he left the ivy covered con fines of Old Nassau. For rarely has such a slimy bunch of characters foregathered within the covers of one book. The hero is a male pros titute with ambisextrous tendencies. Nothing in the treatment justi fies the unpleasantness of the subject matter. — W. C. B. A Philosophy of Solitude — John Cowper Powys — Simon and Schuster: Not only has Powys written this philosophy but he is living it on his upstate farm. The book is a gem and it abounds in ideas worth thinking about. Take it with you on your vacation and if you are staying home don't overlook peering between the covers. Learn and live. — M. K. The Prodigal Duke — Richard Hoffman — Far rar &? Rinehart: The Prisoner of Zenda sort of stuff seems to be young Mr. Hoffman's dish, and he serves it up in an intelligent, gay, and of course dramatic, manner. Now and again there are splashes of dialogue good enough to smear on your cuff. — E. E. A. Transatlantic Wife — Peggy Hop\ins Joyce — Macaulay: Papa will go where mama goes, but it will probably be to the World's Fair after he reads Transatlantic Wife. Peggy caught a vapid woman and how she hangs on, and the tales she tells! Peggy is a brave girl to pat American husbands on the back, or is she still the superb business woman? — M. K. Tschiffeley's Ride — A. F. Tschiffeley — Simon and Schuster: Put your bets on two horses that a man can ride — Mancha and Gato — and a man who can ride them. Tschijffeley's Ride — Ten Thousand Miles in the Saddle from Southern Cross to Pole Star is a masterpiece in 300 pages and it should be broadcast in every tongue. You'll know why people go "daffy over Horses, Horses, Horses" after you read it. Tschiffeley will have no trouble filling lecture halls next year, and if Mancha and Gato make personal appear ances, too, their bookings will call for stadia. — M. K. Very Private Secretary — Mrs. Bailie Rey nolds — Doubleday- Doran: This is a very refreshing little yarn by the author of The Missing Two. It is just the book to read to make you forget your troubles. Take the time. — C. P. A. Whiteman's Burden — Margaret Livingston Whiteman and Isabel Leighton — Viking: Just why the hell this delightful little book was given to us to review we can't for the life of us figure out. We're twenty pounds under weight as it is (night life and owl-trains, you know) and this charming little volume is all about Paul Whiteman (aw, you guessed it!) losing weight — from 303 pounds to 190 pounds practically over night or twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Peter Arno did the illustrations, and that helps out. Also there is a bit of dash to the style and a perfectly horrible sounding recipe for cheese souffle made with tapioca. Ugh! —P. McH.

For information concerning the home, busi ness and industrial life of Aurora write THE AURORA CHAMBER of COMMERCE 64 The Chicagoan RIVER VALLEY Be sure to see it . . . while I attending the World s Fair / INTERIOR OF THE LITTLE TRAVELER, A POPULAR HAVEN AT GENEVA. THIRTY-FIVE MILES west of Chicago, acces sible by rail in half a dosen ways and by a series of modern highways, lies the Fox River Valley, one of the most scenic and beautiful spots in the entire United States. Visitors, attracted to Chicago by the World's Fair, make a mistake if they do not set aside enough time to see its gently rolling hills, green woods, spacious homes and farms, all under the spell of the meandering river. The twenty-eight mile stretch along the river from Dundee on the north to Aurora is the most inter esting part of the entire Valley and all can be seen in a motor trip of approximately one hundred miles from and back to Chicago's loop. Dundee on the north offers the Hill Nurseries and the Haeger Potteries, both internationally famous. There too is the Tower Hill School for Junior Boys, of which Charles Digby Thompson is headmaster. A few miles south lies Elgin, with its tremendous watch factory and beautiful parks. Just south of the city is the modern Kerber Packing Company plant, at which visitors are welcomed. Turning east, the motorist can take the famous Dunham road through Dunham Woods on his way to St. Charles. The Baker Hotel at St. Charles has become one of the best known hostelries in the country in the few years since it was built. It has a beautiful esplanade above the Fox R'ver. A short distance from the Hotel is the Red Parrot Tea Room in the Arcada theatre building, a pleasing place to eat. Scarcely a mile further south is Geneva, possessing the charm of a sturdy old English Village, combined with the activity of a modern American industrial center. Here a live Chamber of Commerce operates. It offers two exceptionally interesting eating places, the famous Little Traveler, and the Mill Race Inn, the latter built in 183 7 and overlooking the river. Southward is Mooseheart and Batavia on the way to Aurora. Aurora is probably the most cosmopolitan city of its size in the west. It offers a variety of interesting industrial activities, many spots of beauty, and diversion, in almost any form from roller coasting and swimming to horse racing. You will find its Chamber of Commerce ready to make your visit there well worth while. THE MEMORIAL BRIDGE AT AURORA IS ONE OF THE COMMUNITY SHOW WORKS.

LONDON DETROIT CHICAGO LTD. OUTFITTERS TO GENTLEMEN 100 SOUTH MICHIGAN AVENUE ONE MAN'S SLANT A Review of the World's Fair By Milton S. Mayer (Begin on page 42) glory. God can come away from the Midway shaking his head and muttering, "I can't do a thing with them,11 and take a turn or two around the Horticultural Building and catch the first train for home with the conviction that the race is not a total loss. Best way to get to the Fair: Via J. P. Morgan's yacht, Corsair, if you are J. P. Morgan. Otherwise, I don't know. The I. C. suburban service is abominable in the worst way, although the fares are sane. The street car company waited until the exposition was an assured success before it began tearing up the streets to lay tracks to the grounds, and street cars at their best are bad. The bus serv- ice-with-a-smile has always been terrible in Chicago, and it continues to be terrible at the same old stand, with a few more coaches in operation but with a few more automobiles on the streets to keep them creeping. The taxi, or Tweed, ring appears to have been broken by the Herald and Examiner, but the Yellow-Checker combine will not give up without a last-ditch fight and as long as there are sociable aldermen in the City Council. The profits of the Century Parking Co., which has the mile-long parking concession just outside the Fair fence, might well be gazed at by the World's Fair auditors, if the Fair still has any check on concessions. The charge of 75c (50c at the extreme south end) yields, my guess is, an exorbitant return on the investment made, and it helps make enemies for the Fair. Cheaper parking concessions a block west of this one are recom mended. Or, better yet, don't drive your car to the Fair — use the various forms of unsatisfactory transportation described above, or be J. P. Morgan. Smartest advertising scheme of any exhibitor at the Fair: The A 6? P Carnival. This institution, which has made its little pile by combining quality and service with squeezing the corner grocer, looked over the Fair a month or so before the opening and decided that what the visitors were going to want most was a place to sit down. So the A. 5? P. put something like $200,000 into a place to sit down. In a year, and in a Fair, of very little giving of something for nothing, the Tea boys have struck a unique note. Their amphitheatre seating a couple of thousand people offers seven swell shows a day by Tony Sarg's marionettes, and Harry Horlick and the A. & P. Gypsies, an orchestra of semi-symphonic proportions, provide concerts every day and evening. In addition, there is a boardwalk facing the lake that accommodates another thousand A &? P hausfraus. There, where it is cool, if it is cool anywhere, plain folks may sit until Nov. 1 without interruption. They may bring their lunches and eat them off A £•? P tables, and if they want coffee or tea or sandwiches they must get up and get them; there is no pres sure, in the form of waiters or waitresses, on them to buy anything. Something like half the people who enter the Fair grounds attend the A. & P. Carnival, and the company's press agent is now trying to devise a scheme to frighten them away. If there is any sense at THE MAIN SALON OF THE GENERAL MOTORS BUILDING AT THE FAIR. EFFECTIVELY EMPLOYING HOWELL TUBULAR FURNITURE. 66 The Chicagoan VERA MIROVA, ORIENTAL DANCER WITH "THE LITTLE CLAY CART," FAMOUS HINDU DRAMA PRESENTED THIS MONTH AT INTERNA TIONAL HOUSE BY THE FRIENDS OF INDIA. all in advertising, and in giving something for nothing, this exhibit will take the last customer away from the last independent grocer, poor devil, in America. Strangely Enough Adequate Provision at the Fair, After Much Dust Had Been Kicked Up Over the Matter: Free Toilets. Best Interpretation of Science to the Layman: The petro leum industry exhibit (previously cited), and the chemistry section, both in the too, too crammed-full Hall of Science. Biggest Thrill and Best Education Rolled Into One: The "Wings of A Century" or "Pageant of Transportation'1 (whichever it is called now) show, performed thrice nightly across the main stem from the Transportation Building. This event is perhaps the only one in the Fair that deserves the adjective "mighty." It is staged by Edward Hungerford, who does things of this sort for people like the B. & O., and by Helen Tieken, a Chicago lassie who has basked for several years in the obscurity of producing Junior League plays. Any parent who doesn't take his kids to see this should be taken out to the barn and paddled, and any kid who doesn't take his parents to see this deserves the same treatment. Best Place to Get a View of the Lighted Fair at Night: The information pagoda on Northerly Island, just south of the Enchanted Island concession. Most Badly Needed All Over the Grounds: Restaurants of the first class that charge no more than first class prices. The lack of feeding accommodations for people in middle circumstances who like to eat well is something which I understand the Fair is studying. The recommendations in this division are still meagre: Miller's High Life Fish Bar is far and away the best restaurant charging middle prices. The Century Grills, Walgreen's, and the hot dog booths serve a small variety of ordinary, good food cheaply, and they are all mobbed at meal times. Attractive restaurants like Old Heidelberg, the Blue Ribbon Casino, the Italian Restaurant, Cafe Leopold in Old Belgium, and Victor's Vienna Restaurant will, I guess, come down in prices after another month or so of empty tables. The Muller Pabst Restaurant and the Schlitz Garden Restaurant have not yet been inspected by this reporter, he is ashamed to admit. The Spanish Pavilion cafe serves a 50c-lunch (all you can eat) and a dollar dinner, in a middling good way. Overlooked Last Month in General Condemnation of Gen eral Exhibits Group: Ipana's complete process of manufacturing tooth-paste. This is one of the rare worthy exhibits in this group of July, 1933 67 BLACKSTONE SHOP. buildings that makes it advisable to go through the whole group lest you miss them. Spectacle unto Itself: The noble redskins, remnants of several tribes, sitting in front of their tepees all day in the Indian Village just north of the General Motors Building, and hitting the hay, as the Indian expression is, at 9 P. M. nightly, Fair or no Fair. The red' skins, and their dances, are, like the Wings of A Century show, an education that books on the subject do not match. There, then, is another section of M. Mayer's Bradstreet of the Fair. There will, I am afraid, be more of the same next month, unless something distracts the editor of The Chicagoan from dc manding it. Your reporter has not covered the Fair by a long shot, and he has not seen all of it by an even longer shot. It is, he is begin ning to think, a pretty big thing.

FOR THE EXTRA GUEST FOLD DOWN THE BACK AND VOILA— A BED! MARSHALL FIELD. The Chicagoan captivity with their shapes intact and their contours unmarred. At my fashion shows at the World's Century of Progress, in the Blue Ribbon Casino, I have found that women from all over the country are particularly interested in these clothes which will adapt themselves to travel. And therefore I have been most careful to select those things which would meet this popular demand. There is no reason why a wardrobe chosen from this particular angle would not fit itself into future activities at home. It should and will if ordinary care is used in its budgeting and selection. It can fit itself into almost any financial scheme, so long as the neces sary elements are regarded and taken care of. SHOPS ABOUT TOWN From J oo Is to Roller Skates By The Chicagoenne The word has gone out that next season we are going in for true elegance and genu-wine stones. Costume stuff will be out, say the stylists, with a stern thumbs-down and a genuflection to Chanel's little million dollar collection of diamond pieces. Be that as it may and pending the amassing of suitable incomes for those emeralds and rubies and things, they are giving us one grand fling at the gay and silly and dollar-ninety-five sort of thing for our summer costumes. Our informal jools now are made up like a salad, out of anything the coutourieres happen to have lying around. Worth rolls shiny cotton with a starched look (the cotton, not Worth, has the starched look) into big balls, strings them up for necklaces or bracelets and earrings and lets us have a grand time wearing these cool, light-as-a- feather and thoroughly appropriate doodads with our cotton and linen frocks. Patou achieves the lightsome touch with his ping-pong necklaces made of the stuff that makes ping-pong balls bounce. Both these types appear in cool pastels, off-whites and yallers and nice queer modern shades. You'll like the dark tones too — deep brown and a tropic looking deep orange. Then we have wisps of cotton snipped and twisted in many colors to make replicas of Hawaiian leis. They have these in brilliant tropic colors but the all-white or shell- pink and pale blues are newer. You will find these three varieties at Field's. Stevens Brothers show another collection in the almighty string, woven into vivid bracelets and chokers and very fetching too. So romp about and be merry for tomorrow they expect us to have the price of diamonds. And what fun that's going to be! For those who have the price for precious things right now, or for those who just like to browse and dream the chosen spot is the galleries of Marshall Field's second floor which now house the famous Hammer col lection of Russian Imperial treasures. You can buy yourself a king's ransom worth of rubies and diamonds here or, being more modest, be content with a smaller trinket in the shape of an antique pendant or a wisp of old brocade. There are some exquisite miniatures and cameos; jeweled crosses and medal lions on queerly worked chains; a pair of lockets with photographs and locks of hair of the Czarina Marie and Cz,ar Alexander II; and a delightful collection of tiny carved or jeweled Easter eggs which could be strung on an interesting chain to make a precious pendant. The more fabulous part of the collection repays well many, many visits. If you are one of those who swoon over little boxes there's a marvellous one in finely chased gold, set with a large topaz carved with the head of Nicholai II, and a lovely antique French snuff box whose gold cover pops open to disclose a tiny bird trilling still away merrily after several hundred years. And the last Empresses' jade cigarette case mounted in gold with a blue sapphire. And the corona tion dinner service of Nicholai I. And the Grand Duke Alexandra' vitch's quill pen set with a hundred emeralds and twenty-two hun dred pearls. And the last Czarevitch's jeweled sword belt and dag gers presented to him by Rasputin. And the finest collection extant of ancient icons and exquisite icon lamps. And brocades and priest's robes without number. And things and things and things to hold you spellbound for hours.

DEARBORN ST., CHICAGO, ILL line for the formal and elegant autumn that is coming are the antique jewels displayed by the well-known Budapest jeweler, M. Krausz, in the Hungarian building at the Century of Progress. Their rings are treasures, fashioned of the jeweled buttons which Hungarian noble' men wore on their court uniforms, magnificent with pearls, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, lapis lazuli. They are amazing in price too, ranging from five to fifty dollars. They have exquisite earrings and pendants and bracelets as well. Don't fail to look at the circlet brooches with alternating swirls of pearls and sapphires and just stacks of other things that are rare treasures and not at all expensive. A good summer, however, must have more than jewels. It must very decidedly include several of the new bathing suits. At least one of them should be rubber, which gives the divine sensation of swim ming in the nude they do say. The rubber is a pleasant crepey material and awfully pleasant to wear. Saks-Fifth Avenue shows two stunning styles in white rubber, one tying at the back of the neck in the ban danna effect and the other tied on one shoulder with a splashy red rubber flower. Silk jersey is another slick new fabric from which the water just slides away, leaving you looking as svelte and shiny as a seal. Saks do a bandanna suit of this in bright red. Their checked gingham suits are fun too, some of them with a skirt and some without, with beach pajamas to match, in brown, red or blue and white checks. The strapped sun bathing suits here are gay in polka dots or pin striped, and they have swell interesting belts. Every summer has its brides too who oh and ah over the frilly feminine things which Sellet Myers collects abroad, here, there, and everywhere for her trousseau shop in the Medinah club building. Her gowns run to soft feminine tones — lots of white and eggshell and tea rose. Very fine Valenciennes is in high favor again and she has oodles of it for your made-to-order lingerie. Naughty but exquisite chiffon gowns and negligees abound in this shop, one lovely one with Alencon at the shoulder and neck, flared sleeves and very full and floaty in the skirt. The tailored sort of bride or the tailored sort of anybody will dote on the smart moire robes which the Grande Maison de Blanc sponsors in stunning combinations of a deep green piped in peach, or royal blue piped with ivory. These are awfully swank and awfully mild in price. They have some nice complete sets of gown, panties and slips in the same colors of satin. For youngster's birthdays or just a pleasant gift any time the children's clothes here are the perfect thought. They are ex quisitely hand made with lovely laces, embroidery and French touches but they fit so much better than French children's things usually do. "Farewell to swelter" is the motto of the manufac turers who are doing revolutionary things with foun dation garments this summer. The big discovery of the year is, of course, Lastex, that cool, infinitely stretch- able fabric which bounces right back to its original snugness though it stretches tractably in any direction you happen to bend. Nearly all the girdles I surveyed in Mandel's always clever girdle department are either of Lastex or Lastex combined with other fabrics to take the place of the old bulky elastic. They are making much here of the summery Le Gant garments — mere shadows of step-in girdles and full-length foundations, fashioned of a voile-like fabric and delightfully airy and summery. What they do to the voile (if it is voile) to make it so strong and firm I don t know but these garments do mold down all bulges and do the job of a much heavier girdle while they are no more corset-y than your airiest evening frock. The slim young things (and older sports women) are all screaming about the Gossard Snug-tites or pouffs which look like nothing more nor less than little knitted sausages which a doll might be able to wear, but which expand beautifully over more substantial hips. The most comfortable yet firm little tricks for sportswear you ever saw. These are at Mandel's too. And they have the snug little things known as pantie girdles here — the 70 The Chicagoan knitted sausage fashioned into little step-ins for the gals who don't wear garters with their girdles. Everyone who spends much time out doors will be pretty happy now with the new Lek-trolite cigarette lighters. These %- } /^ work like the lighters on a car. Don't ask me what the filler is or how the things work, — but they do work. A glow at the end lights your cigarette quickly in the teeth of any gale, on the golf course or on yacht deck, and they are a boon to those of us who are suddenly seised with a longing for a smoke in the wind. They are just as swell indoors, of course, not messy to fill and very handsome designs. At Marshall Field. New Yorkers are still rolling happily along on their skates in Central Park and the craze is gathering momentum here. It really shouldn't be a craze but a permanent idea because the sport is so good for us, it's fun and youth-reviving, and can be indulged in at a moment's notice without a lot of fuss and a long trip to the pool, the courts, or the course. For outdoor skating you can pick up the Chicago Skate Company's ball-bearing skates in almost any store. Be sure to get a pair of the padded ankle straps too or try sliding the straps of the skates through the laces on your oxfords for real comfort. Von Lengerke and Antoine have outfits attached to white or tan skating shoes too — very neat and convenient. If you get really good and can make fancy turns or waltz and stuff you'll be getting the rink craze and then you will need their skates on wooden rollers or the hard rubber rollers which make you feel like a skim ming swallow. Here too are gay bicycles in red, blue or green for something around thirty dollars — and you never spent a happier thirty than this. Miscellany: For summer wear there's nothing like a bag with removable covers or something you can wash easily. Carson's have some with sets of different color pique covers to match your changing costumes; the Churchill Weavers in the Palmer House do lovely bag covers in their fine hand woven fabrics; a flat bag of Flexwood at Field's could be kept clean without any trouble and its soft wood tones are stunning with almost any summer color. Incidentally in the Hammer Russian collection upstairs you'll find some exquisite silver, gold or colored antique brocades made into stunning evening bags, cigarette and card cases. These brocades never tarnish — some of them are hundreds of years old — because the silver and gold threads in them are the real precious metals. Stamped inside as coming from the Imperial Russian collection they make a superb gift. And not expensive either .... All the stores now are showing the new Sim plex shoe trees which adjust themselves to varying shoe lengths so that you know your delicate fabric shoes aren't being stretched too hard or too loosely. The gadget in the middle makes a nice loop too, so that the shoes can be hung safely away .... Pretty soon you'll be hearing more in this column about the Fashion Group which has been organized by leading stylists and manufacturers to label clothes and products so that the buyer knows they haven't been made in a sweat shop. The things are the smartest produced and they are pro duced decently. Lots of important people, beginning with Eleanor Roosevelt are fighting the sweatshop evil and the least we can do is to ask about this whenever we buy a dress or an accessory .... The Waldorf-Astoria has opened a Chicago office at 333 N. Michigan where you can make reservations and get all sorts of advance help for your next New York trip. You'll love the hotel, and this added convenience makes it doubly pleasant. The good old summertime is always the time to invest in furs, even if the thought of a snug coat right now makes you turn blue in the face and scream for succor. Furs are always less expensive in summer but this year with inflation and taxes and rushing business coming on, the time is more right than ever. Louis Berman has a lot of interesting new ideas and designs, as witness the stunning lines on the white broadtailcoat illustrated. The magnificent collar is of natural yellow sable, which promises to be a high fashion fur next season. And — oh yes, the coat was made for la belle Jean Harlow Veloz & Yolanda ^-^ THE WORLD'S GREATEST DANCE TEAM COME EARLY OR LATE!

WINGS, KEELS AND WHEELS Travel on the Lake Front (Begin on page 55) their own which is professionally effective — like the boy who one night seized the tomahawk of the Indian who was struggling with a pioneer and belabored the gentleman's rear, and the lad who has become so entranced with his high wheeled bike that no one knows just how many extra whirls he will make or when he is going to flop, as he proudly takes both hands off the handlebars and waves them in the air. Marshall Field's design' ers spent close to six months delving into old fashion 'books and old attics for costumes of the many periods covered by the action. It's a show that I, for one, could see many times and it is certainly a show that everyone ought to see at least once. With this background of history and inspiration the exhibits in the Travel and Transport building take on a double meaning. After the rattle-trap contraption of Kitty Hawk the huge spread of wing and the luxurious interior of the shining metal multi'motor passenger plane at the door hardly looks as if the two belonged to the same family. And how the original Tom Thumb family has multiplied! There are the foreign relations — the fleet Royal Scot; the Mexican presidem tial train (it should be there by the time this appears) with its rich trimmings and A^tec decorations; the extensive Burlington exhibit of engine, postoffice car, dining, chair cars and Pullmans. In all these engineers, postoffice clerks, stewards and porters are in attendance to show the complex machinery and management that goes on behind the scenes to make our cross country trips pleasant and luxurious. Farther on is the fascinating block of relief maps of the national parks serviced by the western railroads — Glacier Park, Colorado from Pike's Peak to Estes Park, Yellowstone, and the Black Hills. The maps are more than maps. They are molded cleverly to illustrate the topographical features of the western country. Glaciers gleam above Two Medicine Lakes and Going'to-the-Sun in Glacier Park, tiny boats pass back and forth on mountain lakes, Old Faithful spouts THE ILE DE FRANCE GLOWS REALISTICALLY IN A BEAUTIFUL MODEL AT THE FRENCH LINE EXHIBIT. 72 The Chicagoan THE OLD THOMAS JEFFERSON COMES TO LIFE AGAIN IN THE WINGS OF A CENTURY PAGEANT AT THE FAIR. hot water in Yellowstone, little cars roll down the highways of the Black Hills, and miniature streams and falls ripple down the mountain sides. Probably the most gigantic map that has ever dazzled your eyes unrolls on the walls before you as you enter Can ada's exhibit. The map is a beautiful thing and its airy blues give a feeling of out-doorness and a new appreciation of the Dominion's vastness. Below it are some of the loveliest dioramas you will see at the Fair, with slowly shifting lights which carry the beauties of the Canadian wilderness, the glaciers of Banff and the cliffs of Quebec gently from brilliant sunshine through twilight to purple evening. You can, if agriculturally minded, marvel at the magnificent fruit and farm products which are displayed in their pristine freshness or spend hours over the lovely models of the Empress of Britain and other Canadian Pacific ships which are shown in exact miniature detail. The big thrill here, whether the exhibitors intended it or not, is three men — Corporal S. G Gumm, Constable F. C. Johnes, and Constable A. G Arthurs of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, nee the Northwest Mounties. Resplendent in their scarlet coats the Mounties stand guard at the exhibit and patiently answer questions, silly and otherwise, about their past, present and future and the past, present and future of Canada. If you get them in a quiet moment they may unbend and tell you tales of the exploits of the famous Mounties who are now the federal police of all Canada and not only of the Northwest. But they are modest chaps and only smile patiently when someone asks them what circus they belong to, or if they don't find it unbear able in this heat after the Arctic weather of Canada. Though their time is given now to keeping children off the stuffed animals in the exhibit and answering questions, the service ribbons on their chests speak of other days and bring a rare touch of glamour to a Fair which sometimes may seem too scientific and forgetful of the unquenchable individual. an opportunity to contrast two of the finest american and european engines and passenger cars.

THE SMART EXHIBIT OF YARDLEY PERFUMES AT THE CENTURY OF PROGRESS OWES ITS DISTINCTION TO VERNA WELSBY, AS ENGLISH AS YARDLEY LAVENDER. The Travel and Transport holds hundreds of other fascinating exhibits but neither must you overlook the bright show of the French Line in the Moroccan Village. Perhaps it was placed here because the new Chairman of the Board of the Line is the redoubtable Marcel Olivier, who has spent a lifetime in the Min istry of the French Colonies and left the Governor Generalship of Madagascar in 1930 to assume his present post. The French exhibit has a flavor of North Africa and of the many sultan's palaces which dot the Barbary Coast and have been converted into French Line hotels. In the exhibit there is a costly and lovely model of the lie de France, cleverly lighted from the inside so that tiers of lighted port' holes gleam as if the ship were slipping through a starlit ocean night. A wave of nostalgia will slip over you. Another model, of the new cabin liner, the Champlain, is interesting. The reproduction of the tremendous new J<[ormandie is the first glimpse this country has had of the superliner now in the building. Outside the Fair grounds, in the art galleries at 622 South Mich igan, is another travel pleasure you cannot miss. This is the newly opened Chicago headquarters of the German Tourist Information Office. Gay peasant dolls and German handicraft make a welcoming spot of color in the windows. Inside, are walls and walls of the brilliant posters of Germany for which the country is noted among artists everywhere, and rare photographic studies of German types and scenes. You'll want to take them home for your own walls but lacking this you can pick up a collection of the beautifully illustrated booklets which they issue, and gloat over these at leisure. This can be a travel-full summer after all. THE SERENE RECEPTION ROOM AT ELIZABETH ARDEN'S SALON OPENS NEW VISTAS OF FACE, HAIR AND BODILY BEAUTY AND CHARM TO ALL VISITORS. 74 The Chicagoan THE SIX R's The Personalization of Education (Begin_on page 50) qualification for the bachelor's degree is deter mined only by his educational achievements. These are measured by two sets of comprehensive examinations which the student takes when he feels that he is ready, whether he has just completed courses in these fields or has never taken any at all. The result is not increased speed for all students but lack of retardation for those who are able and prepared to progress rapidly. The most striking curriculum change is a grouping of the more closely allied subjects into four divisions, the biological sciences, the humanities, the physical sciences and the social sciences. The uni versity offers one year-long course in each of these fields with the intention of providing the junior college student with a wide educa tional background from which he may be able to make an intelligent choice of that branch of learning which he wishes to study more intensively. The preparation and reading of examinations is taken away from the individual instructor and placed in the hands of a Board of Examinations for the purpose of removing the personal element in the tests, of making them more uniform and the results more readily comparable and of allowing the instructor to be the student's helper rather than his taskmaster. When tests are given as part of a course no grades are recorded, since this exercise is used only as a means of helping the student to appraise his work for his own guidance. The results of this system have exceeded the hopes of its sponsors. Under the non- compulsory system class attend ance has actually increased. Students who were once required to read certain texts now tax the capacity of the library to furnish them with more books which they study voluntarily. Making few demands while providing unlimited opportunity, the university has, under the new plan, shifted the responsibility for the undergraduate's attain ments from the instructor to the student. Thus put on his mettle, realizing that his objective is not a high grade but mastery of a subject, which is not at all the same thing, the average student has shown decidedly increased interest in his work and has made far greater progress than was possible under the old system.

For many years, educators have deplored the unnatural and unnecessary gulf between the kindergarten and the school, the grammar school and secondary school, the secondary school and the college. The University of Chicago has not only shown how the work of the ele mentary school can dovetail with that of the high school but is now working on the problem of integrating the high school with the uni versity. This year it has gone so far as to permit senior students in the University High School to take certain college work on the uni versity campus. The eight year grammar school four year high school plan is tradi tional rather than logical. As early as 1902, John Dewey was saying, "the high school has no definite task and no specific aim. It begins at no definite point and it ends at none.11 Again, in a recent article on entrance requirements, Dean Henry W. Holmes, of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, blames the "historical accident" of the eight-four-four pattern for the artificial treatment often accorded the high school studies. In such a situation, he finds, studies are too frequently considered from the standpoint of college admission rather than for their intrinsic value. "Our four year classical 'course' in secondary education favors spending precious time and labor on studies that are dropped before they bear fruit. ... As things now stand, thousands of young people study Latin far too long for its direct effect upon their use of English and seldom long enough for its possible effect upon their taste or their civic intelligence." The junior high school and junior college are evidences of the attempts to break away from the old system. Schools and colleges are trying to make education a continuous process rather than a wasteful series of starts and stops. According to Dean Chauncey S. Boucher, who is one of that group of men most responsible for the new plan at the University of Chicago, the fault has been largely in the tendency of the colleges to ignore the high schools. That the secondary school is eager to cooperate is shown by the many inquiries that the university has received about its experiment. As a matter of fact, the new system has aroused so much interest and has proved such a stimulus to other educational institutions that this summer the university is offering six courses designed to show the purpose, devel opment and operation of the plan and its possibilities for adaptation elsewhere. These courses are open to secondary school and college teachers and administrative officers. The most superficial inquiry shows that schools all over the country are offering new plans of one sort or another; detailed study reveals fundamental changes in the theory as well as the methods of education, from the kindergarten to Dr. Flexner's Institute for Advanced Study. This is the explanation of those changes — re forms or outrages, depending upon one's point of view — that have agitated teachers and parents and even, occasionally, students. The greater freedom now accorded pupils is evidence of faith in the capacity of each individual to express himself provided he is per mitted to do so in his own way. In other words, it is assumed and frequently demonstrated that it is not necessary to try to make a horse drink if only you have simply led him to water. In general, where the emphasis has shifted from grades and units and the rigidity of courses given primarily with a view to preparation for college entrance examinations, there the faculty is interested in educating in habits and attitudes and skills that will serve the individual not only in college but wherever he may go. The idea is that the student should always be considered as a potential worker and his studies should be planned in anticipation of a future job. In discussing the Committee of the Progressive Educational Association which received a grant from the Carnegie Corporation to work out a plan for better coordination of school and college work, the chairman stated that its purpose was "to develop students who regard education as an endur ing quest for meanings rather than credit accumulation. . . ." An extreme application of this principle results in the practical elimination of systematic courses, substituting for formal instruction in the old subjects the opportunity for students to develop their own creative impulses. The more moderate view is expressed by Dr. Charles H. Judd, Dean of the School of Education of the University of Chicago. Writing for the journal published by the School of Education, he recently advocated the retention of systematic training in the "arts of civilization" plus the "reimportation" into them of that social significance which, he says, has been lost because teachers and pupils have been too microscopic in their vision. 76 The Chicagoan JANE BUILDS A HOUSE A Case History Containing Surprises (Begin on page 53) has to have a fireplace in it, with enough wall space over it to hang some enormous old steel engraving she especially cherishes. Then she's decided she wants a den downstairs, and the fireplace in the living-room moved to another wall, and the dining room and kitchen moved to the other side of the house. The deco rator finally got me aside and said Jane was determined to have one room in the house modern, and although she had tried to talk her out of it, she thought we had better give in, and that probably the guest-room and bath would be the best places to introduce the modern note. This meant I had to change a window in order to accommo date some piece of furniture or other ... I really believe the woman's crazy — Jane, I mean." "Did she tell you about the indoor rock garden?" "Great heavens, no! Where's that to be?" "Well, maybe she's changed her mind and is going to leave the sun-porch alone." But Jane didn't leave the sun-porch alone. The house was almost finished when she arrived one day with a landscape gardener, Tom told me, and they had to change the plumbing and the windows and, in fact, rebuild the whole sun-porch to accommodate the indoor rock garden. lo make a long story short, Jane is now living in her new house. From the front, it is to all appearances just like the picture of the Georgian house she cut out of the magazine, but the back might be anything. The front yard is neatly landscaped as befitting this type of English architecture, but the back yard is a blending of Italian gardens and Indian trails. You almost expect to find a tepee set up behind a clump of bushes somewhere. Inside there is a lovely Georgian living-room, off of which opens the rock garden enclosed in glass. The dining-room is a combination of Georgian furniture and Japanese prints. Jane's bed-room is decid edly Louis XVI, and across from it is the mid-Victorian upstairs sitting room, whose only omissions are a hand-painted cuspidor nes tling up cozily beside the fireplace, the easel with the picture of Sheep in a Snow Storm and a gilt rolling pin on the wall. Everything else is there, however, including the Stag at Bay over the mantel, which had to be pushed to one side so that the room has a lopsided appear ance. Jane, I believe, is beginning to feel already that that room isn't right. She's talking about doing it over, and putting the family heirlooms up in the attic. Tom Brown groans if you mention the house to him. Mary Mathews, the decorator, never speaks of it. The landscape gardener is proud of the front lawn, but lays no claim to the back yard or the indoor rock garden. People who know Jane feel sorry for all three of them, and Jane can't understand why all the photographs of the house which she's sent out to magazines come back without comment. W hat Jane Townsend has done is typical of what thousands of other Janes throughout the country are doing. They will not leave the specialist's work to the specialist. By failing to realize her own lack of knowledge and imposing her ideas on the architect, the decorator and the landscape gardener whom, after all, she employed because she felt the need of their expert services, Jane has achieved a sort of monstrosity which reflects unfavorably on all of them. Not that Jane's own wishes and ideas should have been totally disregarded, and that the architect, decorator, and landscape gardener should set about to create a perfect thing in itself. Not at all. Jane is a distinct personality, and the real desire of those who built her house was to create a background which would reflect her personality, not their own. But if, having a realization of her own limitations, Jane had had a joint consultation with her architect, her decorator, and her land scape gardener before the architect ever set pencil to paper, had explained to them what she wanted, and had then stepped aside, giv ing them the privilege of rejecting whatever ideas of hers could not be properly fitted into the general scheme of the type of house she was building, she would have had a consistently Georgian house with the particular features she desired embodied in it.

So you see, we really are doing it all wrong.

As long as we continue to demand European styles of houses in America, we should let those who create them do so in an orderly and correct way. Having first ascertained the qualifications of the specialists we engage, we should then place complete confidence in them and in their superior knowledge, and allow them to work out our particular problems cooperatively from the beginning in a manner which will reflect credit both on themselves and on us, the owner. MR. GORE OF CHICAGO The Governor General of Porto Rico (Begin on page 27) until 1930. In 1930 the man who had looked like a President to him before was elected governor of New York. Gore wrote him offering his own services and the services of his papers. Roosevelt invited him to Albany and asked him to organize Florida for the 1932 convention. How well Florida was organized is a matter of recent, and familiar, record. After the convention Gore went to New York and spent three months, at his own expense, as a member of the party's finance committee. When the campaign was over, Jim Farley presented him with a loving cup. Mr. Farley has presented almost as many loving cups as there are Democrats, but on this occasion he said some' thing that made another little item to be filed under Gore, R. H., in the newspaper reference rooms: "You are entirely responsible for the unity of the Democratic party." Gore liked Cermak. Farley and Roosevelt, to put it mildly, were not in complete harmony with the Democratic leaders in Chicago. What part Gore played in bringing the con flicting interests together he does not, naturally, say. Cermak and Farley and he went together most of the time during Cermak 's fatal visit to Florida. Another fact that Gore does not mention to a man he doesn't know is that he wanted to be Commissioner of Internal Revenue. Why? You will have to write to the Governor's Mansion, San Juan, P. R., to find out. I didn't ask. Farley offered him the job of Treasurer of the United States. He turned it down. Why? Same address. Then the two of them hit on Porto Rico. Gore knows and likes the tropics. He is a Catholic, and Porto Rico is almost entirely Catholic. Having formed my opinion of the man, I wondered why Mr. Roosevelt wanted so good a man in so hum drum a place as Porto Rico. The World Almanac, whence all wisdom cometh, explains that. Porto Rico is crammed full of Porto Ricans — 450 persons to the sq. mi. compared with 40 in the States proper and 200 in crowded France. The population increased 19 per cent between 1920 and 1930. That is one problem. The second problem is the unhappy condition of the 450 Porto Ricans on each sq. mi. of the island. They never recovered from the hurricane of September 13 and 14, 1928, that left a million — one-third of the population — destitute and homeless and ruined 30 per cent of the sugar crop and 80 per cent of the coffee. The depression, of which we have heard, came a year later. A few days ago Governor Gore and party of eight flew from Miami to San Juan to go to work on Porto Rico. The party of eight included six of those babies that kept coming, the best girl who fed two of those babies and ran a house on her husband's $12 a week, and the mother who wasn't going to let her children drive grocery wagons all their lives. The three oldest babies are remaining in Chicago, one son running the farm, another the busi ness, and a daughter married. Porto Rico may be heard from during the next four years for the first time since its discovery. The new Governor has had some practice in economy and efficiency, and with these two old- The Chicagoan THE SOFTLY DECORATED, COOL HAWAIIAN ROOM IN THE CONGRESS HOTEL WHERE CARLOS MOLINA AND HIS TANGO ORCHESTRA PLAY. fashioned weapons he intends to put the island on a paying basis and redeem his party's promise of statehood. The day Porto Rico becomes a state the line of territorial governors that began with Senor de Leon will end with Mr. Gore The population problem is both knotty and delicate. Gov. Gore does not believe in birth control (nor do the Porto Ricans, apparently), and he feels that the solution lies in persuading Florida — which has 450 country clubs per sq. mi. but not very many people — to grant land to the Porto Ricans for settlement; he has yet to convince both Florida and the Porto Ricans of the beauties of this plan. My interview with Robert H. Gore — which the World Almanac interrupted — began with his sitting down with hat on. It ended with his saying, 'Incidentally, I don't speak Spanish." So I think I have seen the man with his hair down. And I think too that a man who goes around with his hair down and still looks good can be a pretty useful employe of his country — in Porto Rico or any where else.

There's a new contrivance called the Beer Boy which does away with all the fuss of bottles or of barrels. The Beer Boy is a cooler arrangement which can be easily driven to the nearest place you know where they serve draught beer. It is filled in a moment and you dash home, set it up, and have a flow of your Pabst on draught and no business of tapping barrels, setting up a cooler or any mess of discarded bot tles. The Lightning cooler is another idea for cooling bottled beer or any bottled beverage in less than fifteen minutes. This is a com pact and good looking case with an ice chipper attached. You sim ply drop your ice into the chipper, grind it out about the bottles and have an ice-cold drink for the unexpected guest at a few moments' notice. It's a swell idea to keep bottles from cluttering up the refrig erator and spoiling the cook's temper, too.

Our last Southerner ceremoniously crushed his mint leaves and a dash of sugar with a bit of water in a bowl. Then he used, instead of lemons, many juicy limes, which give a lovely white froth and a much better taste. A jigger of Bourbon, a spoonful of the crushed mint concoction, the lime juice and then complete filling A DANDY OF THE OLD WORLD'S FAIR.

SHADES OF '93 If you have been wondering about the little scenes on this page — they are just girls and boys from Rector's. We simply had to use them as a sort of salute to the old World's Fair. Rector's famous Cafe de la Marine was the spot in 1893 and the beginning of the era of famous diners and winers of which we still hear nostalgic tales. Older Chicagoans will remember Charles Rector as the man who parleyed a 1 5c oyster stew into a million dollars. His Oyster House was one of those places where Chicago grandfathers and grandmothers might go in quest of good food and drink; where, incidentally, the first oysters on the half shell were served west of the coast. After the success of Rector pere in introducing sea food in its native cellophane to Chicago, the Rectors received the commission to operate the only restaurant inside the Fair grounds at the '93 World's Fair, and, of course, they made it a sea food restaurant. The building was designed by Daniel Burnham, who with malice and forethought put the Cafe de la Marine right across the street from the Fisheries building. People often speculated as to whether their dinner was ogling at them from the inside of a glass tank not 50 yards away. Rector and son denied this, 'til . . . "One day during the summer of '93," narrates Mr. Rector, "the Fisheries director entered the Cafe de la Marine and wanted some pompano. We had had a very heavy run on pompano that day, I remember, and my father told him that we were all out of pompano. 'Never mind, Mr. Rector,' he said, 1 am not!' He sauntered back across the street and sank a net down into one of the tanks and walked back across the street with his dinner under his arm. "Unfortunately, Charley Dillingham saw him in the act, and after that all denying was in vain." Now George Rector comes back to Chicago and another World's Fair as host at the A 6? P Carnival. You'll like this show, with Tony Sarg's marionettes, clever dialogue, and Mr. Rector reminiscing jovially — even though it's all free. And hostesses simply must stop to get a copy of George Rector's notable cook book here. It's something to add distinction to your table and make all modern home economics recipes curl up with envy.
