How often, in advance of the Great Day, the bride and groom, even as brides and grooms of the past eighty-two years, look to Field's for friendly counsel and assistance. THE BRIDE, considering her trousseau, has a choice of five different FIELD services: THE BRIDE'S ROOM on the Sixth Floor, North, State, where the traditional white gown may be chosen in satin, lace, organza or net. FASHION CENTER, also on the Sixth Floor, Middle, State, where wedding costume and "going-away clothes" may be adapted from French fashions or American designs. Here, too, one learns what is being worn for garden wedding . . . quiet chapel service . . . second wedding ... as well as for grand, formal ceremony. THE CUSTOM APPAREL SALON on the Fifth Floor where the bride may have her wedding wardrobe designed exclusively for her. THE TROUSSEAU ROOM on the Second Floor where linens for the new home may be assembled; and THE SILVER ROOM, First Floor, South,Wabash, where the bride may select flatware and table silver according to her means. THE GROOM . . . slightly nervous, rings up his best man and together they repair to the GROOM'S CORNER on the Second Floor of the Men's Store. There the assembling of an appropriate outfit becomes a painless, even pleasant task. For the formal wedding, FIELD'S relieves the groom of all details pertaining to the ushers' clothes as well, and is even prepared to send out a man on the wedding day to assist masculine principals. This service is without obligation. THEIR HOME ... be it tiny apartment or spacious menage, will be the more charming and comfortable for the things in it that are chosen at FIELD'S. The Eighth Floor offers hosts of bright ideas in the Tradition Apartment, Modern Apartments and Pilgrim Shop. And our Interior Decorators on the Ninth Floor are happy to help the new householders.

This is particularly true of summer clothes which are thin and dainty, and must stand dry cleaning. The difference in price between fine, dependable apparel and the ques tionable kind is very slight. The illustration shows a White Ribbed Silk Gown and Jacket. The Red Relt and Buckle matches the ornamental buttons on gown. It is priced at $45.00, and its sim plicity is characteristic of Martha Weathered styles. It is only one of hundreds of beautiful summer pieces ranging from lovely wash silk dresses at $15.00 to the more dressy pieces. The White Linen Sailor with Red Patent Leather trim is $15.00. Our Misses Shop at Michigan and Oak carries the small sizes from twelve to twenty, and our Shop in The Drake carries an extraor dinarily complete range of sizes from sixteen to forty -four. A visit to either Shop, depending upon vour size, will certainly convince you that it isn't the number of pieces one buys that constitutes a satisfactory wardrobe. It is the character and suitability which the pieces possess. MARTHA WEATHERED EDITORIAL Q A A A I I P I IKIQ1 II I 0nce again the center of action in Dr\l V\ UCL IINjULL the complex drama of the Fall of the House of Insull is in Chicago. The tedious routines of the technology of the law and the courts are beginning, and with this third act movement of the tragedy there comes a dawning public realisation that it is not alone Mr. Samuel Insull who goes to trial before the world but in a certain sense also the community itself. The verity of the charges against Mr. Insull is a matter for the normal processes of the courts, a cold determination of facts and responsibilities, but meanwhile there promises to be and should be a clearing away of the mists and fogs of prejudice, innuendo and ill-founded presumptions which have so long dominated the views of the public and its newspaper press. The great city of Chicago, so proud, and so often boastfully proud, of what it calls its fair name, has now before it opportunity and obligation to demonstrate its fairness. While Chicago awaits the adjudication of the charges brought against Mr. Insull, it can reflect that the collapse of his financial empire brought to him greater loss than to others and that after all, while it may diminish the lustre of his name, it does not and can not destroy the fact of his ability and leadership, in the days of his power, as important in the building of Chicago. Not the bitterest of Mr. Insult's personal foes can deny his achievements. His successes and triumphs and the good that he has done are still good and will live after him, possibly far longer than his mistakes. Despite the vast attentions of the daily press, the Insull story is yet but a half told story. The half that has been told has been written in the head line hunting debacle technique. None has ventured yet to explore the political ramifications and significances of some of the important but less obvious aspects of the Insull case. That there should be, to borrow a term from the vernacular of the motion picture, a certain "timing" of official action, a "timing" that has no apparent relation to expedient operation of the machinery of justice, has not been discovered by this ardent daily press. That story is not sufficiently obvious for the purpose of the leather-lunged "bootjackers" of the circulation crews. The public has been given the im pression, a picture by inference, of the once mighty Mr. Insull a fugitive from justice, dramatically fleeing from the law and seeking refuge in far places. But there has been no pointing out of the fact that no charges were filed against him until some three months after he had departed from the scene of his unhappiness. When the official word from Washington was given to the radio com panies that there could be no microphones and spot news broadcasting from the scene of the Insull landing on American shores there was evidence enough that somewhere in high places was a desire to take showmanship command of the Insull case. Abstract pursuit of justice has no concern with microphones. The Chicago newspaper treatment of the Insulls, typically savage in pur suit of sensation for many months, has contrived to convey proclamation to the world on the usual windy theme of "big, big, big!", of a two billion dollar triumph in iniquity. This proclamation has found itself not so well supported since Mr. Insult's return, by photographs of a harassed, weary old man. He may feel like hell, but he does not look like the Devil. The newspictures have brought documentation, plain even to the illiterate eye, tending to invade the grand myth of the ogre. And perhaps that is why, within a fortnight of Mr. Insull's landing, what the city editors call the "heart interest" coloration began to seep into the journalistic presentations. Most fortunately, not only for Mr. Insull's chances of obtaining a fair trial but for the interests of this community in general, the vaporings of Chicago's newspapers are notoriously innocuous. If this were not so, Colonel McCormick's Tribune and Colonel Knox's Daily J^ews would have had Cook County marching on Washington with pitchfork and shotgun before the New Deal was a year old. If this were not so, the late Edith Rocke feller McCormick, pilloried on her deathbed by these journals and their contemporaries, would not today be enshrined in civic memory for her pub lic benefactions. The newspaper pre-trials and crucifixions of Mr. Insull are of a piece with what has gone before, adding nothing to the brightness of the boasted "fair name" of Chicago. No public good can now be served by anything but fair, unemotional, unprejudiced trial of Mr. Samuel Insull upon the charges as made — a trial in the courts, not the press.

WE DO OUR PART WHEREVER AMERICANS tave i THEY are reminded of home and of their home land's preeminence in motor car design and manufacture by the frequent sight of a Packard. A list of the coun tries in which Packard ranks first among the world's fine cars starts with the United States and includes every foreign country in which registration records are kept. Each year more Packards are exported than all other makes of American fine cars com bined. These are important facts for you to know, be cause competition between motor cars is even keener abroad than here. Aggres sive dealers represent every American car and, in addi tion, every foreign make is presented with the added appeal of patriotism or na tional prejudice. So it may seem remarkable that in every country throughout the world Packard is the favorite fine car. Yet this world supremacy is not hard to understand when the care with which the average for eigner buys is considered. Freight, duty, and handling charges tremendously in crease the cost of an Amer ican car abroad, and the pur chase of a motor car is made after a careful comparison of the relative merits of various makes. You are invited to come in and drive a 1934 Packard, and to compare it on any basis with any other fine car. We believe you will decide to purchase a Packard. PACKARD MOTOR CAR COMPANY OF CHICAGO CONSULT THE PACKARD LISTING IN YOUR TELEPHONE DIRECTORY FOR THE ADDRESS OF THE NEAREST BRANCH OR DEALER 12 The Chicagoan Chicagoana Selling Chicagoans On Chicago and the 1934 WorWs Fair Collected by Donald Campbell Plant THE rather modest letterhead read "Keep Chicago Ahead" and under that "Civic Committee," and then under that "General Chairman: Hon. Ed ward J. Kelly." Not even "Mayor" Kelly. And the list of fifty names down the left- hand side of the sheet, under small-type headings of "Executive Committee," "Gen eral Committee" and "Publicity Commit tee" read like a Blue Book of Chicago business and civic activities. Because we have always thought Chicago ought to have a good press agent and be cause we knew little about the movement, we called on Mr. G. R. Schaeffer, Chair man of the Publicity Committee. He out lined the hopes and plans of the organisa tion and invited us to call at its head quarters. The next day we did. Nine o'clock in the morning finds about eight people busy in Room 348 of the Conway Building at 111 West Washington, and even with daylight saving in our midst the electric lights are often necessary before they call it a day. Four P. M. may find a group of distin guished advertising and publicity executives gathered about a table in the center of a large, open workroom, discussing the ad visability of spending important money for a national radio hookup, or debating the effect of a phrase in a motion picture script. Then the whole crowd adjourns to a meet ing in the council chambers in the City Hall, where plans are made for a World's Fair rally at which 20,000 people will hear Mayor Kelly, Governor Horner and Rufus C. Dawes tell of the benefits A Century of Progress brought to Chicago last year, and point out what Chicago can do to make permanent friends of all its World's Fair visitors and keep them coming back to Chicago year after year. For that is the basic idea behind the activities of the committee. At the present moment the effort is cen tered around the new World's Fair. The committee is using all the publicity media at its disposal — the newspapers, the radio, bill-board, posters, automobile stickers, pamphlets, mass- meetings — and it seems to be getting results. It produced a sixteen- page rotogravure supplement that was dis tributed to newspapers in twenty-one states, with a total circulation of nearly 1,500,000. About half of this was pictures of the World's Fair, and the other half of Chicago's permanent attractions. Several hundred business establishments have taken nearly five million pieces of informational material to send out with mail and packages. Chicago really presented its best side to the visitor last year. Thousands of unso licited letters have come to the exposition management and to the mayor's office, ex pressing both astonishment and pleasure at the treatment the writers received here last year. They praised the courtesy of the police, the fact that hotels didn't kick up their rates, that they could eat a good meal at a reasonable price — in short, they said they had an entirely new picture of the Big Town. And that is something, when it is remembered that the average man generally doesn't take the trouble to write back unless he has a squawk to register. The future of the committee's work is uncertain. Most of the members think, however, that it will be a permanent insti tution, in some form or another. They think the time is ripe to convince the world that the side of Chicago that the 1933 visitor saw is the side he will generally see, and that he can be persuaded that this is a good town in which to spend a vacation, and that Chicago institutions are good peo ple to do business with, and so forth and so on. They are willing to make the try, and the extent to which they can realise their aims depends largely on the support the home folks give them, first with money, and second, with the old Chicago spirit. The Ark /"\NE of the earliest plans of which we ^-^ heard that were being formulated by the 1933 World's Fair organization was 'Mr. Swadgley! You march right off to bed!" given to the press some five or six years ago. It was said that the Fair people had a party roaming around Mt. Ararat look ing for Noah's Ark. If that vessel, or any parts thereof, were discovered, nothing could stop the Fair people from bringing it, or them, to Town for the Big Show of '33. It was a good story for the public prints, but archeologists rather raised their eye brows at it. At the time, we remember, we wondered why it wouldn't be pretty nice to enlarge upon the plan and also exhibit Uncle Tom's Cabin, Davy Jones' Locker, Lucy's Locket, the Flying Dutchman, the Charge of the Light Brigade (with proper seduc tive sounds) and the Mill on the Floss. Even if any of them could be stumbled upon, transportation expenses would have been prohibitive. But we've often won dered whatever happened to the expedition that was supposed to have been storming around Mt. Ararat. Maybe they came home to see the Fair. Marathon A DISTANCE running member of the ** University of Chicago track team, or maybe it was the freshman team, was tak ing a workout in Jackson Park early one morning this spring. He was just rounding off his third or fourth mile when he heard peals of laughter from the nearby nine-hole golf course. On one of the tees were two girls who were feeling very merry at the sight of the track-suited young man pacing along the bridle path. They yelled at him with great good humor, hoping that he'd win his letter. The young trackman turned from his path, ran over to the tee where his audi ence was and confronted them, panting heavily. "Girls," he gasped, "girls, what-uh town is-uh this?" Jar Left Wing A YEAR or so ago the John Reed Club "^ of Chicago (more or less a "Spring Mooney" organisation, we gather) began publishing a magazine entitled Left Front. We heard about it, but only recently did we see a copy for the first time. The edi torial board states that Left Front goes in for artists and writers who are applying Marxist-Leninist analysis to several kinds of conflicts — that it is a new, revolutionary regionalism in literature and art. And they don't have any of the customary polite taboos (but the Post Office Department does) . Left Fronters are always striving and crusading. They're either trying to get June, 1934 13 Mooney out of gaol or marching on May Day or creating minor disturbances here and there. Which reminds us of the re cent May Day parade. A nice, little old lady had been wanting to get a glance at a real, live, official Com munist. She thought she'd certainly see one or two on May Day, so in Town she came to have a try at spotting one. She saw a pale, wan, rather bedraggled looking in dividual, none too well-kempt nor well- dressed, in need of a shave and a bit toward the green side in general coloring. Up to him she trotted and said, "Young man, are you a Communist?" "No, ma'am," he replied. "I just got out of the hospital." Jilm Note rT",HE local manager of one of the large *"¦ film companies was sitting in the bal cony of the Oriental Theatre watching the unreeling of a brain-child, or stepchild, of his wellknown concern. He was relaxing, and then he heard a young lady behind him remark to her escort : "They certainly make fine pictures at this theatre, don't they?" And he wondered about it all, wondered if it were worth while. Salvage "1T7E'VE just heard of something that happened to a young couple come from Cleveland last fall and become parents shortly after. An old Clevelander, after visiting them at Yuletide, mailed 'Mrs. Murray ! Here's your package of seeds from Washington!" Junior one of those baby banks issued by savings institutions (with a bill already in this one). After the banklet became heavy, the young father looked up the lo cation of the institution whose name was lettered in gold upon its imitation covers. He couldn't find any "Diversey State Bank of Chicago." In mild bewilderment, he took the locked coin cache to his Loop bank and, of course, learned that the Diversey had long since closed. Downtown bankers refused, however, to burgle the little metal box for him, so he had to take an axe to it out in the garden to regain Junior's deposits. A few well-meant remarks in a letter "Cap tain S m alley , have you seen my mother anywhere?" to the Cleveland friend elicited the latter's admission that he had picked up the gad get at a drugstore opposite the La Salle Street Station. Yes, they're sold there — in two colors, according to baby's eyes. And each plain ly marked with the bank's name. Speed \X7E stopped in at the Davis Store the other day to watch the World's Amateur Champion Typist at work. Bar ney Stapert is his name and he's from Haw thorne, N. J. He's been typing for fifteen years. Used to do shorthand, too, but it's pretty much Greek to him now. His official record is 129 net five-stroke words per minute for one hour; he made that when he won a recent professional tourney. He became a pro after he'd won his amateur championship. He did 120 net in that meet. Pros write for an hour, ama teurs for one-half hour. The net score is what is left after points have been de ducted for mistakes. Say a score was 130 with one mistake; then the net score would be 120 — ten words off for each mistake. Typist Stapert made those records typing from copy with which he was not familiar. From copy with which he is acquainted, but which hasn't been memorised, he has typed 155 net; that's his best score to date. Stream-liner /CHICAGO ANS ought to know one of ^ their fellow citizens who is playing an important role in the rehabilitation of the nation's railways. He is Samuel A. Marx of the Ambassador East. For many years this serious-faced, soft spoken gentleman (he really is all that the word implies — and southern, at that) has done some very distinguished work architecturally and his interiors are particularly noteworthy. The Julius Rosenwald home in Ravinia is one; the Arthur Lehman (brother of the gov ernor) residence in New York is another. He built the famous House on the Roof of the Hotel Sherman, designing both the 14 The Chicagoan "An' Little Red Rid ing Hood says to her grammaw — " structure and the interior (including the furnishings). The new home of Max Epstein in Glencoe, both inside and out side, is the work of this accomplished citisen. But that is not all he does. He streamlines trains, too. He was con sulting architect on the new Union Pacific Diesel-driven speedster now under construc tion, and his notable contribution to it was the all-enclosed and glassed-in observa tion end. He designed much of the interior. And the Pullman Company, for which firm he is consulting architect, just this month delivered a stream-lined five unit train to the New York Rapid Transit Lines. A street car embodying those sleek lines de veloped in wind-tunnel tests is being built at Pullman according to Mr. Marx's plans. Railroads throughout the country have called upon him to design new trains and redesign old trains. Into his blue-prints go simplicity, furietaonalism, clear, vivid color, and above all^appeal to the eye. Watch Mr. Marx. And watch his work as it goes racing over steel rails at 100 miles per hour. It's exhilarating, to say the least. Cyclist "1X7 HAT with so much cycling going on * * all over Town and especially in the suburbs, the following really seems plau sible enough. A young man recently attended a small, formal dinner. He was, we understand, quite carbonated on his arrival, and after several cocktails — or perhaps Sherrys — he wandered off; for a walk in the garden, the rest of the party assumed. Dinner was announced, but the young man had not returned. The host and a servant or two searched for him while din ner waited. After something of a hunt the host found his guest in a spacious bathroom. He had climbed upon a stationary exercising bicycle and was pedaling away heroically in undershirt and shorts. It seemed that he was something of a cyclist and had often done a mile in four minutes or some such time. The tempta tion offered by the exercising bicycle had been just too much for him. On his first trial, by the speedometer and his watch, he hadn't done very well — all of ten minutes, it had taken him. After he'd discarded his dinner jacket and waistcoat he'd cut his time a bit, but he wasn't satisfied. Having rid himself of his trousers, bosom shirt, ac cessories and shoes, he'd lopped off a few more minutes. He was about ready to dis robe entirely and have one more go at it when his host entered and persuaded him to take a shower, dress and join the as sembled guests for dinner. On Nature's 'Bosom "\7"OU have to keep your hair parted in the middle so as not to capsize small racing boats like some we saw at the Boat and Sports Show recently. All at quiet harbor within the enclosed upper deck of Navy Pier, the craft ranged from midget outboards like Tom Maypole's fifty-mile-an-hour Century "sea-horse" up to the sumptuous thirty-eight foot Wheeler cruiser. The latter 's about the same trick as Vincent Astor's Little Tiourmahal (lit tle compared to the two-hundred footer from which the President and Astor fish) and the inside looks like a kitchenette apartment gone to sea. The high point of maritime interest seemed to be the Matthews cruising sloop, described as "able enough for a 'round-the- world trip," manned by one. It has an auxiliary engine in case three hundred square feet of sail find naught stirring, and it's about twenty-six feet long, sleeps four, with stove, icebox, and everything. In price, it's little more than a medium-cost car. The new crop of speedsters and runa bouts lack knee action, but have plenty of floating power, streamlines, and sprayless, level-riding comfort and visibility achieved through hullshape innovations. In the lat est hydroplane watercraft, nautical engi neers have nearly realized their dream of causing air and water currents to lift the whole rushing boat out of water — evenly, stem to stern. It takes a propeller sus pended considerably below the hull even to catch the passing aqua. A great deal of out- doorsy atmosphere had been set up in the Pier: woods, ponds, and gardens with trees, stuffed animals, and live sparrows. The cap tive birds did not confine themselves to these areas, however, but flew all around, tempt- "Has Miss Betty Starling dressed yet?" June, 1934 15 'Terribly hickish, isn't she?" ing shooters in the rifle and pistol range, and distracting the famous billiard expert, Ora. C. Morningstar, at his demonstra tions. The whole effect of rural reality was enhanced by loudspeakers giving forth canary songs, softly accompanied by a string quintet. A fine casting pool was provided on the Pier, with floating targets, although some fishermen preferred drycasting, landing some rather surprising shots among the feet of unwatchful passers. Farther on, in the target range, some of the best scorers on the police and bank guard forces made merry among the Christ mas trees: It was all wild and woodsey under a blue cheesecloth sky. Sometimes three or four persons were barking away at one time. It seemed that the noise of one gun would disrupt the calm aim of the next man. We thought we saw one young fel low — apparently deaf — switch off the bat tery connected with the little amplifying device at his ear. Almost worth being deaf. Holding the sports and boat shows this year together allowed followers of one field to get a line on others. For instance a lady of probably limited marine experience was reading the name of the Chicagoan who had raced a four or five foot sailboat to win the national model races. "Goodness," she shrilled, "they must have to be smaller than jockeys!" Turf Note "1T7E guess you have to be famous or * * have friends who own or operate stables to have a race horse named for you. There are a lot of horses running at the various tracks in the States and Canada (there will, at one time this summer, be seventeen tracks going in both countries) that have been named for Notables. There's Bing Crosby, a first straight horse; Ben Bernie, another pretty good nag; Gen. Lejeune, Bert Lahr, Al Jolson, Ted Husing, Dan Sabbath, George (local alderman) Maypole, and, of course, Mata Hari are running. Lincoln Plaut, we guess, has been re tired, but Clyde van Dusen, named after the famous trainer, started running again this spring after a long vacation. Charlie Dawn, named for one of our local night club editors, goes to the post quite regu larly; and George Jessel and Red Grange are a couple of two year olds, but we don't know how promising. And soon, at one of the local tracks, Bill Donahue will be a first starter. He's named for a local and popular bartender and is said to be a right capable youngster.

So, on the neck-band, they print the brew-date. That's when the beer was brewed, you see. Aged and all that. Operator's Air castle * I *0 settle a hot argument for someone, A we 'phoned Harrison 3800 the other day. "Congress Hotel," a voice answered. "Could you tell me how many floors you have at the Congress?" we asked. Almost at once came the answer: "Twenty-four, sir." Caught a little off balance, we could only thank her and hang up. According to our mental picture, that caravanserai was about fifteen windows high, viewed liberally. So we riffled a copy of Chicago and Its Ma\ers until we found a picture. It showed fourteen stories by our count. Nor was there a tower visible — like the one on the Auditorium, which seemed fifteen stories in all, without higgling. Then we toddled over and got the "Tribune feature edi tor? Do you have a pencil and paper? 1 want to tell you what our cat just did!" 16 answer by furtively counting with our un mannerly finger. It's fourteen floors high in the south unit, ten high in the north section. Four teen and ten. Aerodynamics /^\NE of those new Chryslers with the ^^ line styles that are completely di vorced from anything you've ever seen be fore — a great luminous gray model — was being driven through the Fairgrounds a few weeks before the opening, while the painting was still going on. It was taking some officials to the Chrysler Building. While passing under one of the arch ways some red-orange paint splashed down on its convexed hood and radiator making pretty much of a mess to be sure. But the paint leisurely rolled down the car's wide, curved nose much as molasses rolls down hill, or is it January? The car had to be cleaned of course, but the point is: with the development of aerodynamics in auto- mobiledom a motorist can drive under a ladder without fear. Hi, Nellie! "D EST minds to the contrary, unemploy- ¦*-*ment isn't the worst thing about the business cycle. A sadder case came to our ears the other day from the rank and file of the Fourth Estate. This particular newspaper, an out-of- town sheet, has been smilin' through the last few years mostly on nerve and by trim ming the staff now and then. The last trim left them without a lovelorn advisor and it was privately settled that love would have to give way to sterner matters, for a while anyway. "I got this one in a little shop over on Rush Street." The management began to grow a little alarmed when the readers acted like they weren't getting the idea. They went right ahead asking personal questions as if nothing had happened. No one at the paper knew quite what to do about it, and, multiplying with each mail, the bundle of letters floated unhappily from one depart ment to another. The city editor rather crossly said he was too short-handed, and the society editor refused on grounds of lack of sympathy and inexperience. Editor of the woman's page flatly declared she was a mother herself and just couldn't under take the responsibility.

That is what is being done now. The staff of the morgue as a whole likes the idea and is inclined to see humorous pos sibilities in it, but the custodian of the photograph file, a woman well beyond the frivolous years, finds it wearing. Once or twice a week she sorts out the more awk ward questions which the rest of the staff have side-stepped, and makes a pilgrimage to the public library. Here, somewhat to the mystification of the others, she unearths answers. Not always, though, and then it worries her. Once or twice, when impa tient questioners have sent a second letter, she has fallen back on her fortune-telling cards for the solution. While advice ar rived at in this way usually turns out rather bright and alluring, she distrusts it and is vaguely uneasy till the matter blows over. 0 'Bannioniana "DECENTLY a Dion O'Bannion story *^- came to us. What with O'Bannion being just so much local history now, it may be old, too. It was during the days before Prohibition, and labor-slugging, Union fun and gambling flats were the popular and remunerative rackets. One evening a rival mob bombed a flat owned by O'Bannion. A few days later a friend of O'Bannion's, one who was out side the rackets, met Dion on the street. O'Bannion had a bulky package under his arm. "What you got there, Dion?" the friend asked. "Pineapples," responded Dion. "Pineapples? What's a pineapple?" asked the unknowing friend. "A Chinese football wit a wick in it," said O'Bannion walking on.

MILLERS ELOQUENT LENS HAS KEPT PACE WITH EXCAVATOR, BUILDER, ARTISAN, RECORDING IN A MANNER AS MODERN AS THE FAIR ITSELF THE DARING, THE ACHIEVEMENT AND THE GLORY OF A CENTURY OF PROGRESS. MORE THAN A HUNDRED OF THESE PHOTOGRAPHS HAVE APPEARED IN THE PAGES OF THIS MAGAZINE. HE COUNTS ON CON TINUING HIS STUDIES OF THE FAIR THROUGH THE SUMMER. The Fair Opens A Preview and a Prediction By Milton S. Mayer I SAT in the shade, where the best of all sitting is done, with Algy Swinburne one afternoon not long ago. I say it was not long ago, but that is just in the manner of speaking. It really was long ago— longer, I might say, brushing away the semblance of a tear from a withered cheek, than I care to remember. Algy was a morose lad, as those of you who knew him — and that is going back some — will remember. Like so many morose young men, he was given to writing verse, and his verse, naturally enough, was no less morose than Algy him self. But he would be quite humanly, and quite ingenuously, affected at being asked to recite, and since he was plainly in a brown state of mind that afternoon I thought I would buck him up a bit by offering myself as a backstop. "Algy," I said, breaking in on the silence like the first ax in an ancient forest, "have you been getting off any roundels of late?" Algy didn't answer for a piece, and I didn't say any thing further, affected as I was the way the woodsman might have been on hearing the rude sound of his own blow. I had decided Algy wasn't in the mood for his own stanzas or any others, and I was wondering what I could do, when he wriggled some on the log and went down into his pocket and pulled out a piece of paper that had four folds and four hundred wrinkles in it. "Yes," he said, without relaxing the grip of his teeth on the blade of a week, "I have. Here is the way it winds up." And he read: ". . . We than\ with brief thanksgiving "'Whatever gods may he, "That no life lives forever, "That dead men rise up never, "That even the weariest river '"Winds somewhere safe to sea." He didn't look up, but he let the 'paper fall on the ground, and the low-lying breeze was just enough to shove it along toward the pond. I jumped up and ran after the paper (the way you run after a hat) and caught it (the way you do a hat) smack on the edge of destruction. I hadn't had time to decide whether it was worth keeping, but knowing Algy as I did it struck me that he should have a chance to throw it away a little later. "Put it in your pocket," I said. He did, and I think it pleased him that I should have run after it. But his face didn't show it; it wouldn't have been Algy's if it had. That is how I saved The Garden of Proserpine, a poem, as Algy's verse afterward came to be classified, and thousands since, yes, I suppose millions, who were feeling pretty good before reading it and something awful forever after, have called down on me the wrath of what Algy used to refer to as "what ever gods may be." A lot of dolorous ink has been splashed on the paper since then. I reckon Algy would be joshed for an incurable optimist if he came around today. But he is gone. He can't defend himself. He wouldn't if he could, and I know he wouldn't want me to. I 've never had a graceful opportunity to tell that story. I wouldn't have told it now, and here, if the whole thing hadn't fallen into my mind as I sat down to write about the 1934 world's fair. You see, along about October of last year I was thanking whatever gods there be that no fair lives forever, that dead fairs rise up never, that even the weariest world's fair editor winds somewhere safe to a beer June, 1934 THE RIOT OF COLOR IN THE MAKING saloon. What happened after that belongs to the history books. Frank Roosevelt, the Prexy, got as near the fair as the Admin istration Building and went back to Washington and wrote Rufus Dawes that the fair, which he hadn't seen, was so good it ought to be let stand there and rubbed up the following spring. What was good enough for Frank was good enough for us, 'way back last November, and the hotel keepers and the politicians set up a din around Rufus Dawes, who once told me that when November came he would never look at another fair again, and Rufus and Charlie Dawes and Lenox Lohr talked it over and decided why not? So the 1934 world's fair, formerly the 1933 world's fair, was got under way. Now it has begun its final appearance, positively, on this or any other world, and it behooves me, having talked it up since it was knee high to a world's fair, to pass a few remarks, including the customary number of slurs and grimaces. Anyone who thinks that a minor league writer can write about a world's fair for twelve months and then start writing about it all over again without going quixotic on occa sions is crazier than a billy goat. I know that to the lay citizen, in the cloak-and-suit business or the grocery business or (before they traded in the banks for saloons on a two-for-one basis) the banking business, the man in the writing business has the softest of all possible grafts. After all, there are only a limited number of words in the language, most of them short, and all the writing man has to do is to string them and restring them, and collect at the rate of so much for each word, even though none of the words were his originally and he has used them all, and collected on them, before. But there is more to the writing business, my friends, than that; more, indeed, than meets the eye. The very fact that the words have all been used before, the fact that, as Stevenson said, we are all very fine fellows these days but we cannot write like William Hazlitt, constitutes a challenge to the writing man. Here is a world's fair three miles long, or a miniature of Watteau's three inches high, and a thousand writing men have written it and written it until they are written dry. But each new writing man is called upon to see the subject as if it had never been seen before; called upon to race up and down the gamut of the vocabulary in a new and improved way. That, friends, takes footwork in the head. Here we are, just we two, on page number five, as the type writer flies, foolscap paper, triple spaced, and no closer to the matter at hand than we were back there on the log with Algy Swinburne. As a matter of calculated fact, we are a lot closer; we are right on it. The circumambulation of the past four pages was no stall. It was pointing a sad-eyed parallel between the 1934 fair as she is written and as she is. A century and A Hundredth of Progress simply is not a new adventure, not on paper and not in fact. Just as there is no getting steam up over a revival of 19 A COURTYARD IN THE BLACK FOREST VILLAGE The Student Prince, so there is no getting steamed up over the revival of the first fair ever to be revived. The people will come in droves of one size or another, and it is right that they should, but they will find themselves at an old fair in a new paint job, with a lot of carnival foolishness added on. I write this as an old, old pal of the fair, an original thick-and- thin man, but I write it cold sober, with my holy obligation to my public, my public which says, as a talkative ex-captain of industry recently said of himself, "Mayer's judgment may be terrible, but he is four-square and a man after our own hearts." The terms "warmed over" and "held over" have been used to discredit the 1934 fair, and I believe that Congressman Tom Blanton, the very minor statesman, used them in his grand stand campaign to whittle down the federal government's appropriation from $450,000 to $200,000. But while the reduction of the federal government's measly appropria tion was a scurvy business, the terms, I am much afraid, are applicable. How does Mayer know that a warmed over fair is going to be a disappointment to the fairgoers? He doesn't. For what little he knows, it may be the time of their young lives. He hopes so. He was agin the revival when the editor of The Chicagoan first suggested it, ahead of everyone else, last September. But he was agin it only because, in his frank, open 20 The Chicagoan THE SPANISH VILLAGE EMANATES OLD WORLD CHARM way he felt it was an unsmart thing to do. He came around to a luke-bullish attitude as the winter wore on, and now you find him taking his favorite stance of balancing on the fence. To those of us who went last year, and went and went and went, there is one new item, and only one : the old-time villages. The Ford exhibit may be the biggest thing on earth, but it has nothing that will put 'em in the aisles. A more or less intent study of the newspapers, big and little, reveals a deadly dearth of publicity for the 1934 session. What is there to publicize? What is there to print that hasn't been printed before? (This reckoning excludes the Chicago papers, of course — they have an excusable selfish interest in it.) A year ago I put up a beef about the fair's lack of some big coarse thrill, like the sinking of the Titanic or Michelangelo calcimining the Sistine Chapel on his head, but nobody around there paid any attention to me, and the Sky Ride, a lame affair, was touted as the eighth wonder of the world. Although I had put my feet on Lenox Lohr's desk and eaten the paper-pantied lamb chops at Rufus Dawes' table, it was their fair and not mine, and I did not try to sit on their chests and tell them how to run it. I wrote my pieces in the magazines and let it go at that. It is true, of course, that they were shorter of funds than a mink is of morals, so when the Sky Ride was offered to them June, 1934 21 A CHARACTERISTIC DETAIL OF THE IRISH VILLAGE as a gift they took it. Even so, I'd have looked it in the mouth. The fair was right smart fine, and a near-success financially, and Maj. Lohr was more of a hero than I tell out in public, and Rufus Dawes got so famous over-night as a showman that he was offered the job — now it can be told — of running the new (Rosenwald) Museum of Science and Industry. But I went on griping, all summer, about the stoicism of the American public in the face of the wonders of science, and when the fair shut down, with the icicles hanging on it, I was still maintaining that they should have had Hoover vs. Roosevelt over the fifteen-round route in Soldier Field, the winner to take on John D. Rockefeller, Sr., in a finish bout. We Americans are a plain, profoundly simple, bacon-and-frijoles sort of people. We may not know what we like, but we know what art is. Art is something that you don't see around the house. The big coarse thrill that I thought someone should have thought of would have been art, and the American people would have reminded each other of it to their dying day. This year the fair had some change rattling around in its jeans and its credit was as good as Calvin Coolidge's was in Plymouth, Vt. The big coarse thrill should have been conceived and brought forth. It wasn't. To the eternal shame of someone, they have installed a Ferris wheel (it was announced there would be two 22 The Chicagoan ANTIQUITY BROODS OVER THE ITALIAN VILLAGE Ferris wheels, but when I was over there last I found only one) that is a peewee alongside the wheel at the World's Columbian Exposition. Think of that. The one innovation this year, and it is an innovation only insofar as it wasn't picked up last year from all the fairs of all time, is the construction of the thumb nail villages. The villages may save the 1934 fair; that is why I hesitate to go out on the limb with a sour prediction. Except for a few minutiae of engineering, there is nothing in them or about them that is new. But they are genuinely quaint and realistic — that goes for all fourteen of them — and I think they are what the fairgoer of 1934, 1834 and 1734 wants. Rufus Dawes is of a quiet turn of mind, and I suspect he takes more time off than most men of business to ask himself quo vadis? and what does it all mean? and is life worth while? and so on and so forth. I wonder, then, if it occurs to him that his and Lenox Lohr's exposition of science was a thousand years ahead of its time. They took what was bound to be an advertisers' show and fancied it up into a pretty high-minded display of conic sections and transmogrifications of light waves and sound waves and such. Mr. Dawes had maybe 7,000,000 people paying 22,000,000 admissions, and he saw maybe 6,000,000 of his customers pass along the corridors of science with an air of impatience and make a bee-line, as soon as they June, 1934 23 THE SWISS VILLAGE INVITES TO COOL VISTAS had done their time in the corridors, for the carnival end of the grounds. Mr. Dawes saw the Belgian Village, a stupendous anachro nism in a science exposition, take in so much money and so many customers that the Mr. Potie who was operating it stood rubbing his eyes all summer. And Mr. Dawes saw the people and the newspapers full of disputes over the nooks and the nookie in the Streets of Paris. Then came 1934, a fact which is too well known to justify the use of this shiny thick paper to print it. A few of the big exhibitors quit — notably the A. T. G? T. and the Great Atlantic 6? Pacific Tea Co. That seemed to me, and it still seems, an inordinately piker thing for them to have done. The distillers had come to life since last year, and one of them came in. The fair played three of the big pig' slitting companies against each other, and they came in. Henry Ford decided that history wasn't bunk after all, and he came in with a circus building housing an historical exhibit of the motor car. The Midway was enlarged, by virtue of in' creased applications for concessions, and moved over to the island, which stood in sore need of a crowd-puller. Then came the villages. So, you see, the fair has taken a (Continued on page 56) 24 The Chicagoan "They're Off" The Race Season Opens Under Fitz Gerald Direction By Jack McDonald THE usual and obvious way to start a biographical sketch of a prominent man is to begin with a host of boy hood memories, bringing in a spot of humor, and a poignant recollection of a pony or dog. That's generally a fine begin ning, and excellent Hearstese, but certainly doesn't apply to this story. For one thing I would be afraid to write maudlin senti ments about Mr. Christopher J. FitzGerald, first Steward to represent the newly formed Illinois Racing Commission at all tracks, for his very bearing leads you to believe that he is not a man to be trifled with. Though not an austere person, Mr. FitzGerald has a natural dignity which, with his erect car riage, topped off by his snowy hair and brows, marks him as the highest type of true sportsman. Now in his late sixties, Mr. FitzGerald came to New York from his native Canada when sixteen years old, and settled down to the monotonous business of trying to earn a living. Making one's way in the world is at best a wearisome proposition, particularly so when a young man loves horses and rac ing and must make his living away from them. Working at night as a telegraph op erator on the private wire of the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette, he managed to attend race meetings, and through his turf con tacts he got a job as reporter on the T^jew Tor\ Sun. There he was in his element, writing about racing and turf affairs. This apprenticeship to writing was to serve him in good stead in later years when he became publicity man for the Jockey Club, Presi dent of the Brighton Beach Racing Asso ciation, and Steward at our best tracks. One day, while stroll ing about New York, young FitzGerald met James F. Caldwell, then the dean of race track starters. "Fitz," said Caldwell, "I have a telegram in my pocket that concerns you. In some way I mixed my dates, and agreed to start a race meeting in Toronto, not remembering that I had a conflicting engagement in this country. I've wired the Lieutenant Governor, and this telegram is his reply, stating that you will make an ac ceptable substitute." This was a bit of a surprise to a young man who had never started a race in his life, but his objec tions were laughed down by Caldwell, who packed him off to Toronto to start the meeting. The first few races were difficult, for starting a group of fractious horses is an art not easily acquired, but FitzGerald made good. This abrupt baptism under fire showed his natural ability and made him a life member of the racing fraternity. Mr. FitzGerald deserves credit for intro ducing the starting gate in this country, installing the first one at New Orleans, although one race had been started at a California track with the Australian barrier, now in general use in England and France. There have been many changes in starting devices, but the same general principle is still in successful use. Mr. FitzGerald has bought and sold a great many horses, making at least one trip a year to Europe to purchase young and breeding stock. Ireland, France and Eng land are visited in his eternal search for fast and well-bred horses. A life-long am bition would be realized if I could tag along on one of these buying tours, visiting the Irish Fairs and Tattersall's famous auctions. Not only a buyer, Mr. FitzGerald has an enviable record as a manager of blood stock sales, having established an all time record in the sale of the Belmont horses for Joseph E. Widener. One sale of brood mares, young stock, and horses in training, netted almost $800,000, a mark that will not be equalled in many a day. It was on this occasion that the twenty- year-old stallion Fair Play brought $100,- 000 — a record price for a horse of that age. Another world's record under the condi tions was made on this same occasion when Quelle Chance was disposed of for $45,000. This mare was in France at the time of the sale visiting a noted stallion, and was sold by a photograph and description. Picture brides may be a Chinese custom, but $45,- 000 picture horses are plenty rare, this be ing the only one on record. Another notable transaction in blood stock was his purchase, in partnership with Robert M. Eastman, of the stallion Tryster, winner of $100,000, for fifteen thousand dollars. He later sold Tryster to Carstairs and Pierce of Philadelphia for $100,000. A s representative of the Westchester Racing Association, of which Major August Belmont was Presi dent, Mr. FitzGerald negotiated the hun dred thousand dollar match race between the English Derby winner, Papyrus, and Harry F. Sinclair's Zev. Two weeks of in tensive work abroad concluded the ar rangements, which included raising $45,000 to recompense Trainer Jarvis and Jockey Donovan for the time lost in journeying to America. This was an epochal affair and is now turf history. A breeder of horses, he is one of the partners in the ownership of the fine stal lion, Pharamond II, bred by Lord Derby and half brother to that splendid sports man's Hyperion. Hyperion won the Eng lish Derby last year and is favored to win over the American-owned Mate and Gusto in the gruelling Ascot Gold Cup Race. This race, two and a half miles over a tri angular course, is the supreme test for thoroughbreds. This is the first year of the Illinois Rac ing Commission, and their initial act of choosing Christopher J. FitzGerald as the Commission's Steward at all tracks could not be bettered. He has been Presid ing Steward at Arlington for several sea sons, and his record there and elsewhere brought about his selection for his position in Illinois. Aurora has already benefited by Mr. FitzGerald's stern though just steward ship. Horses reach the paddock on time, and in condition. No last minute scratches are allowed without the permission of the offi cials. And woe to the boy who fouls or rough-rides in a race. The schooling lists are long, the suspensions frequent; but rac ing in Illinois is on the up grade. A firm, impartial, and fearless hand is necessary to rule racing, and Christopher FitzGerald is the man for the job. The day is not far distant, I think, when a Na tional Racing Board will control racing throughout the nation, and it is my belief that Mr. FitzGerald will be one of the mem bers of that commission. Drop out to Washington Park, Lincoln Fields, Arlington, or any Illinois track and see how things are being run. You'll approve. zAbout Tolo THERE is absolutely no truth in the widely circulated rumor that John Dillinger, formerly of Crown Point, In diana, threw in the first ball at the Na tional Indoor Polo Championships. He may have been one of the ten or fifteen thousand persons who crowded into the armory on each game night, but George Bates threw out the first and each succeeding ball. New champions were crowned during the games and exceptionally fine polo played, for which much credit is due the players; but the palm must go to George Bates for his excellent handling and refereeing of the series. The games were fast and at times furious, but George kept things from get ting too rough, without slowing down the play, as is so often the fault of New York Indoor Polo. This was Bates' first year as a big league referee, and he deserves a vote of thanks from the committee. Cleveland won the Junior Championship from the very good Boulder Brook team. From the outset Cleveland appeared a sure winner, much stable money being bet that way, but Boulder Brook came back in the the second game with an attack that com pletely demoral- (Continued on page 52) June, 1934 25 PHOTOGRAPHS BY R.

" 'Most any place that isn't here," says I. His face went \ind of queer, "The place we're in is always here. The other place is there." I CAN'T recall where first I read this bit of whimsical verse, but I've never com pletely forgotten it. There is something about "that there poetic guy" that strikes a sympathetic note. Wondering about the "other place" and how to get there has always been one of my chief failings. It is not unusual, in spring, for one's fancy to turn to thoughts of other places. A change of scene becomes an urgent necessity and the imp, Wanderlust, permits no rest. As nearly everyone feels a keen desire to go most any place that isn't here, I'll pass on to you a few of the things I have learned about going places this season. If you are thinking of a European jour ney (and more people are planning on it this year than for the past three years) it behooves you to make your arrangements as soon as you can. That almost forgotten phenomenon of steamers sailing from New York loaded to the gunwales with tourists is with us once more, hard as it may be for you to believe. But it is a fact that good steamship accommodation will be at a pre mium from now until the middle of July. The reason is basically simple. Due to eco nomic conditions, travel in the past few years practically stopped, and the various lines curtailed their services accordingly. Numerous ships were taken off their trans- Atlantic runs to await the return of better times. Now that things are picking up again, these ships are being replaced, but as is always the case with steamship lines, butchers, bakers, and manufacturers, the de mand exceeds the supply when a depression is over. As an example of the increase in travel, it is almost impossible to secure superior space on the special cruises to the North Cape, the Mediterranean, and around Africa. Cruises of this type have always been popular with the American people, but like everything else did not fare so well the past three years. But times have changed and Mr. John Public is on his way again, anxious to taste once more the joys of journeying after a long period of denial. An unusual condition exists in that the traveler is demanding better space, and while ordinary accommodations can be had, the superior type cabins with bath have been booked since March on the more popu lar cruises. There are a number of reasons why Europe is particularly in teresting this year. The outstanding attrac tion is undoubtedly the historic Passion Play at Oberammergau which celebrates its three hundredth anniversary. Played at ten year intervals, with a few special per formances in other years, it is an event that occurs but few times in the ordinary life. Then too, it has been rumored that this may be the last year the performances will be given — that political pressure may arise to make continuance of the vow taken by the villagers of Oberammergau an impossibility. In any event, the future is always uncer tain, and in ten years' time many unthought of circumstances can develop. Recognition of the Soviet Union is an other vital factor that will lend impetus to travel eastward. The establishment of an American Embassy at Moscow and nu merous consulates in the larger cities of Russia tends to reassure the American traveler in a country undergoing great political change. A visit to Russia today offers an extraordinary opportunity, one that never before has been possible, a chance to see at first hand a nation in the making, without sacrificing comfort or security. Since the resumption of relations between this country and the U. S. S. R., travel to the latter has increased by leaps and bounds. Intourist, the official Soviet travel agency, estimates the increase in visi tors to be in the neighborhood of 200 per cent. American travelers are found every place in the world, but before great num bers will go to foreign lands, they must be assured of comfortable living conditions and protection of their person and property. This has been borne out by favorable reac tion to travel in Russia since recognition. But Europe is not the only center of travel interest. Steamship lines report un usually heavy demand for space to Alaska, the Orient, 'round the world, and South America. In fact, there is a general boom in travel everywhere. Secretary of the Interior Ickes forecasts this will be a Na tional Park year. It is also true that the Canadian and Mexican as well as the American resorts and summering spots will be popular. The Eucharistic Congress in Buenos Aires will stimulate interest in South America. It is anticipated that special sailings and regu lar services in connection with this event will be booked to capacity. All in all, the aver age man has decided it is time to take that long deferred trip, whether it be for a two weeks' vacation or for the entire summer. He is tired of waiting for prosperity to come around the corner, and now that he is fairly sure that conditions are definitely im proving, he feels no necessity for further delay. Oddly enough he is not interested in cheaper travel, and minimum accommo dations, but is insisting on the better type cabins and general arrangements. This may be due to the fact that the cost of the better space has been reduced in a greater pro portion than the minimum tariffs, making it possible for a greater number of voyagers to afford more comfortable quarters. It is a comparatively simple matter to secure lower priced accommodations on all steam ship services, but when it comes to a small suite in the center of the ship, it is a horse of another color. At any rate, every cloud has a silver lin ing. This summer you won't have to worry about being the only passenger on the ship, and you can be sure of the life and gayety that is so important a part of the pleasure of traveling. You may have your worries about securing the kind of cabin you would like to have, but a lot of needless trouble can be saved if you do not wait too long. The general agents of all the steamship lines are wearing broad smiles again — a sure sign that they are not crying wolf when they suggest an early reservation. June, 1934 27 GEORGE BERNARD SHAW: VEGETARIAN WALTER WINCHELL: LAUNDRYMAN PRIMO CARNERA: WET-SMACKER JOHN BARRYMORE: SHADES OF GREASE PERSONALITIES PHOTOGRAPHED IN THE HARD LIGHT OF TRUTH Spinach and other greenage, soiled linen, the towel, and the make-up box cast shadow-caricatures conjured up at odd mo ments by Ben Schafer and photographed by A. George Miller Sandor to You Wherein An Artist Makes a Name for His Public By William R. Weaver THE Greenburg caricature on your right is a laughing likeness at the frequent fleet moment when the imp that will not die in him peeps through ill worn maturity. At other times he is ear nest, unlined of brow or lip, intense, intro spective, a little hurried, meticulously defi nite. He is five feet and six inches tall, weighs one hundred and fifty pounds in mat togs, smokes one or another of two hundred fantastically assorted pipes inces santly, drinks a stein of Pilsner under per suasion and wishes people wouldn't write about him. He was born on April 21, 1895, at Kassa in Hungary, now Kosice in Chechoslovakia, third of seven children given to a tailor father and a couturiere mother whose pre sumable interest in what the well dressed artist will wear is no part of his heritage. He wears a black suit, a black hat, black cravat, sox, shoes, but no man's black shirt — nor red, nor brown, nor blue nor silver. He combs his black hair straight back but it points every which way. He clips his moustache when he thinks of it — the coal black brush of it bristles above even rows of gleaming white teeth — and pitch black brows shadow brown eyes alert and kind as a greyhound's. He is ambidextrous— always was — speaks four languages and rarely swears in any of them. JTlis name is Alexan der Raymond Kat? and his name is Sandor. It was recorded as Kat2; Sandor on the rolls of the Hebrew school at Kassa when, a four-year-old, he permitted the tutors to interrupt his daily routine of drawing pic tures for incredulous and generous military gentlemen quartered in the town. It was Kats Sandor, too, on the lists of the Kassa public school which claimed its share of his attention two years later. Together, the schools practically ruined his day. The Hebrew instructors engaged him from 8 to 10 in the morning, the pub lic school from 10 until 12:30 and again from 2 to 4, after which his mentors of the morning had at him again until 7. Fortu nately, both sets of instructors liked his drawing better than he liked their teach ing; he sketched and drew and painted his way through seven years of this. Inter ested neighbors furnished him art supplies and bought his pictures, usually paying in stamps, and in some devious way he ac quired two hundred and ten Hungarian translations of Nick Carter's American classics. These works, with a sprinkling of biog raphies, Washington, Lincoln, Buffalo Bill, Franklin, Mark Twain, sold him America. He thwarted a movement to send him to Vienna, to study and exhibit, and cajoled the local police magistrate into revising his age upward some eighteen months to the sixteen years required for passport pur poses. The magistrate transposed his names and respelled Sandor A-1-e-x-a-n-d-e-r. Another magistrate, later, demanded a middle name for entry on his naturaliza tion papers and Raymond — with a bow to Dr. Thomas for his sturdy overture — was tossed in. Everybody calls him Ray. 1>0 bands met the boat that brought the Kassa prodigy to Nick Carter's beloved New York, and life on Staten Island meandered along its muggy blanks unstirred by his arrival at the home of a brother-in-law who didn't care much for artists either. This was dis concerting. So was the suggestion that he turn his talent to commercial profit. In come from volunteer buyers of classroom sketches was all very well — drawing for money, by day or piece, was not for an artist. And so the grimy gamins infesting a certain gutter on the lower East Side found among them one bright morning a small dark boy giving away pictures — crayons, water colors, sketches of people, places, things — in great number and in greater haste to be rid of them. Young Katz had stopped being an artist. Life and the cost of living it hadn't stopped. A German newspaper carried help- wanted ads. He could read German. He worked in a brass factory, a piano fac tory, twisted wire stems of a million ar tificial flowers — there were thirty of these jobs — before he joined up as errand boy in what turned out to be a show-card studio. This was fatal. He was caught toying with a crayon, filling in the spaces between gaudy letters with swift symbols of the subject matter, and a few months later he was on his way to Chicago with a handsome letter of introduction distinguishing him as "an expert filler-in." (Continued on page 57) June, 1934 29 A. O.EOROE MILLER (one 'JUeJLainarter CONDUCTOR, COMPOSER, 'CELLIST, ORGANIST AND CRITIC. THIS SUMMER, CONDUCTOR-IN-CHIEF OF THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AT A CENTURY OF PROGRESS, COURTESY OF SWIFT AND COMPANY. ASSIST ANT CONDUCTOR OF THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY, CON DUCTOR OF THE CIVIC ORCHESTRA, THE CHAMBER ENSEMBLE, THE ALLIED ARTS AND THE SYMPHONY AT RAVINIA. A TREMENDOUS WORKER OF UNBENDING WILL AND HIGH PURPOSE— AND WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR. Summer Symphony Musical Chicago in Preview and Review \ T the Fair this summer two symphony l-\ orchestras will play almost across •*• •*- the street from one another, the Chicago symphony by courtesy of Swift and Company, and the Detroit symphony by courtesy of Henry Ford. Don't say, in your pessimism, that nobody ever learns any thing. Last summer there were no sym phony orchestras, nor any other highbrow foolishness, but omnipresent loudspeakers broadcasting the latest popular song hits which, of course, was what the public wanted. And the howl that went up from the aforesaid public was heard even in the sanctum of authority. So this year, twice a day, for more than two months, you will be invited to sit down and rest your feet, without money and without price, while two great sym phony orchestras discourse sweet music! Before two such organisations as Swift and Company and Ford decided on any such grandiose gesture they must have had their ears close to the ground and have come to the conclusion that there was a demand. They, and others, were told so last year, and told good and loud, but could not believe it. Well, let us be thankful that they saw the light, though perhaps it would be more apropos to put it that they heard the growl and realized that they had guessed wrong. T he Ballet Russe from Monte Carlo came back and did it over again, though this time the attendance veered more and more away from the in telligent towards the proletariat. It would be too much to expect that the in- telligenzia would consent to dip their fingers in any stew in a manner of speak ing, that the commonalty found to be to their taste. Nature revolts at such a mesalliance. But, looking at the house filled to overflowing night after night, the man agement smiled broadly and cared not who they were so long as they paid their money in at the box office window. Delightful dancers they are, especially in the snappy up-to-date stuff. Union Pacific made a great hit at the first per formance, one leader of the right set being heard to say: "Well, I never expected to find myself shouting again for anything in the Auditorium," which was considered to have settled the matter. But on second thought people were not so sure. We Americans are not accustomed to seeing our mechanical achievements ex pressed with such nonchalant grace. Two fisted fighting Irishmen cleaning out a bar room we could understand, but not spiking rails to ties with quite such daintiness. The By Karleton Hackett music was negligible. The composer had a good notion but did not carry it out convincingly. Union Pacific probably will make more of a hit in London and Paris, where they are more accustomed to such artistic inter pretations and are not bothered by our notions of verisimilitude. We shall have to be further from the pioneer days of actual working on the railroad before we shall be able to envision our forebears in such guise. The art of a cappella singing has got itself thoroughly established here, this being one of the striking develop ments of recent years. Father O'Malley's Paulist Choristers and Noble Cain's A Cappella Choir both proved their powers satisfactorily. Father O'Malley's singers had a buoyance of spirit and a freshness of tone that was most pleasing. Boy soprani and contralti have a timbre that is distinc tive, and when they are under control, as was the case with these singers, the effect is lovely. Noble Cain is a remarkable conductor, but it seems that he is going a bit too far in his desire for technical achievements. There is a hardness coming into the choral tone, a heaviness in the accents, and such violent dynamic contrasts as make the sing ing sound rather more like a display of choral virtuosity than a sincere expression of the spirit of the music. The Woman's sym phony orchestra gave a concert at Orchestra Hall for the purpose of raising money and it is understood that they succeeded to a reasonable extent. Good. They ought somehow to get people to rally around them, but perhaps they are a trifle too straightforward and not quite gay enough. On this particular program there was not much orchestra but a generous array of soloists — -perhaps with an eye to, the box office. Maier and Pattison made the ex pected hit. As a combination these two have something, and they know their pub lic; it being all the same to them whether it is Bach or Tur\ey in the Straw. Mina Hager sang Pergolesi's Salve Regina ear nestly, but the classic style does not find her at her happiest. The Woman's symphony tried to do something for American art by giving the first performance of Carl Sandberg's Good Morning, America, in the musical setting by Hazel Felman. An entertaining poetic rhapsody, as you doubtless know, but not one that lent itself comfortably to a mu sical setting. The words, of course, were the essential, but too often were obscured by the volume of orchestral tone and there was not much for the singers to sing. The old story. Mme. Hager declaimed with appreciation for the words, and with lots of spirit, she understanding this sort of thing, and the International singers got to gether effectively for certain full-throated shoutings. A sincere effort. The annual festival of the civic music children's choruses with the civic orchestra at Orchestra Hall was a pleasing occasion, as always, and also thought-provoking. They are doing a fine work, Marx Oberndorfer, Eric DeLamarter and all the rest of them, but somehow they do not make noise enough to get the ear of the public. They go about their busi ness with dignified reserve, while the urge of the day calls for ballyhoo — shall we say? They ought to find a Brain-truster with lungs and the willingness to use them. The Apollo club closed their season with a pleasing per formance of Hadley's melodious Mirtil in Arcadia to the text of Louise Ayres Garnett. They sang well under the direc tion of Edgar Nelson and had a long list of very good soloists. But at a first glance the stage picture was disturbing; forty men (I counted them) surrounded by three hundred of the fair sex running from ten years of age on up! It would take a stout hearted man to feel himself at the top of his powers under such conditions. The maidens from the public school system, who formed the bulk of the female contingent, sang very prettily. Well, children can do anything in music if given half a chance. But where, oh where, were the men? It appears that plenty of them are to be found for a cappella choruses, but for an oratorio society it seems to be pretty slim pickings. And singing is such good exercise for the lungs — highly recommended by the doctors — but men have no regard for their health. Tomford Harris gave the last of his remarkable series of re citals of Twentieth Century piano music. Mr. Harris is so interested in all sorts of music for the piano, and enters into the spirit of whatever he is doing with such evident good will, that for the time being he is most persuasive. He almost con vinces you that it is really important, or at least that he believes in it. Some of it was amusing when as well played as it was by Mr. Harris. June, 1934 31 Critical Croppers Some Legends of Lapses from Omniscience By William C. Boyden THE portly gent whose silk hat is knocked off by an urchin's snowball is not more ludicrous than the critic who "pulls a boner." They are not supposed to do it, these sapient fellows who sit night after night at operas, concerts and plays looking for other people's mistakes. But, being human and subject to the frailties of nature, they sometimes do. And then is emitted a chorus of sardonic chuckles, par ticularly from the performers whose with ers have so often been galled. Referring to "croppers," I do not mean misspelling of names, grammatical errors and the like. Such foibles will creep into any hurriedly done writing, and in many cases can be laid to the type-setter. Rather the glaring miscues which send managing editors into an early decline. One happened just recently. At the opening of Girls in Uniform the program spelled the first name of the competent lady who played the Headmistress as "Francis," instead of "Frances." That error, added to the fact that in carriage and demeanor the lady was vaguely masculine, led three of the newspaper reviewers into rhapsodies on the cleverness of the hoy who assumed such a difficult character role. Then fell a gen tle rain of raspberries. Charley Collins tells a good one on the Dean of Chicago critics. It seems that the Dean was merciless to a play, called it op probrious names, damned it roundly. A year later the same reviewer was lured to a production at a German theatre. He raved about the priceless quality of the en tertainment, ending up by the suggestion that the drama should be at once trans lated into English. You've guessed it. Into much the same trap fell the Women's Clubs who gurgled ecstatically over Lysistrata when it was done in Russian by the Mos cow Art Theatre, but condemned the same play as salacious, pornographic and lascivi ous when its English burst upon them in all its carnal glory. All of which would seem to prove that it's good if you don't under stand it. But the worst retribution falls when a critic takes a chance and writes without having been there. There is a legend about the first review ever written by dear old Amy Leslie. She had been on the stage and by chance her first newspaper assign ment was to cover a play in which she her self had been playing but shortly before. Nervous and excited at her new job, Amy stayed home, wrote a masterly review. It was printed but unfortunately a bad snow storm prevented the company from reach ing Chicago. The play had not opened. Music critics are per haps more prone than drama critics to fall into snares inherent in imaginative report ing. After all, there is considerable repeti tion in musical entertainment, and in the hurly-burly of the day's work it must often be a temptation for a reviewer to unlimber a few well-chosen cliches in the privacy of his den rather than to venture out into the cold night air and the drafts of an audi torium. It is told of a young and brilliant reviewer on an evening paper that he once had the temerity to chide Dr. Stock for omitting Christmas music from a certain Christmas program. Unfortunately the good Doctor had changed his program at the last moment to include several Christ mas numbers, thus leaving the young man holding the well known bag. On another occasion one of the boys reported Lazzari in splendid voice when the famous tenor had such a bad cold he could hardly be heard. But the worst and most historic break was made by a veteran music critic who could not bring himself to go all the way to Ravinia to take a second look at Aida. So he tossed off a neat little bit about the Opera and turned it in. Un luckily Rethberg came down with a sore throat and Mr. Eckstein's patrons were re galed that night with Samson and Delilah. History does not report, nor is it likely that a publication for home consumption could report, what the managing editor said the next morning. Ned Moore of the Tribune relates a nar row escape which happened to a friend of his in the East. This critic was also taking a night off, but fortuitously happened to be having a nip of Scotch in a saloon oppo site the opera house. Hearing a commo tion across the street and seeing people run ning about, he stepped over to see what had happened. He found that the tenor had gone on in an advanced stage of inebria tion and during a love-duet had fallen into such a sound sleep that no one was able to awaken him. When the Angel Ga briel blows his trumpet and all the ghosts flock out, the bewildered shades who hap pen to wander into the Loop will undoubt edly find some domestic comedy playing its hundredth performance in the Cort Thea tre. If all Chicago theatres could so con sistently house their particular type of en tertainment, it would be a theatrical millennium indeed. The continued patron age of Sport Herrmann's playhouse, when most other theatres are dark, leads one to the inevitable conclusion that there must be people in Chicago who have never been to any other theatre. The current offering is Taylor Holmes in a bright little fable of family complication entitled Big-Hearted Herbert. The plot is so simple that you might well wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. A grouchy paterfamilias boorishly insults the dudish family of his daughter's fiance. So the wife and children turn the tables. They take all the covers off the furniture, hang mottoes on the walls and outdo Father in crudity on the occasion of the good man's bringing home his best customer. It is all good clean fun, and at times uproariously hilarious. On the open ing night many a sophisticate kept tight lips for fifteen or twenty minutes, and then broke down and laughed like a truck driver at a Laurel and Hardy comedy. Taylor Holmes plays, as always, in the mood of broad farce. His familiar man nerisms of expression and delivery make his characterizations somewhat unreal, but withal likeable and amusing. The others play much straighter and several of them are worthy of more subtle material. A close second to the Cort for continuity of occupancy is the Grand, the Shuberts' favorite theatre for their endless stream of tenors wearing more ribbons than Sergeant York, sopranos yield ing to the spell of moonlight and fat comics paddling the derrieres of soubrettes. The current offering is All the King's Horses, and I can think of ten good reasons why said show might run all summer. It has (1) romance in its Prisoner of Zenda story, a four hundred and thirty-fifth re-writing of the commoner-in-role-of-king plot, with Rudolph Rassendyl in the person of a Hollywood movie actor; (2) a carload of good, clean, jolly dirt; (3) a relatively in expensive "nut," only three high priced per formers and a chorus made up of one row of dancing gals; (4) Guy Robertson, perky, gay and strong-lunged as ever; (5) Nancy McCord, regal in bearing, scathing to gaze upon, most pleasant to hear; (6) Billy House, a Falstaffian tub of guts who can smirk his way out of the most atrocious insinuations; (7) Betty Starbuck, a neat package who knows her way all about the stage; (8) a song called Charming, with which Miss McCord and Mr. Robertson come nearer stopping the show than any tenor and soprano have in many seasons; (9) a well paced and smartly directed pro duction, thanks to Jose Ruben; and (10) some of the kind of settings which get a hand on the curtain-rise. And, off hand, I can think of no sound reason for not seeing it. 32 The Chicagoan llancy l/lcL^ord ana (^,uy [Robertson THE LOVE INTEREST IN 'ALL THE KING'S HORSES" IS HERE OBSERVED IN PRELUDE TO ONE OF THE MOST DARING CURTAINS EVER OBSERVED IN MUSICAL COM EDY.

This navy sheer suit is just right on warm days and for cooler days I can replace the jacket with a swagger string-col ored sports coat. The gown I really love and favor (sketched at extreme right) is of navy blue taffeta and white organdie. Both materials are crisp, cool and flattering." ¦ Mrs. John Dern says: "I am very fond of taf feta and particularly this full length wrap in brown which is snug on cool evenings. It does nicely for wear with both formal and informal gowns, such as the plaid chiffon (sketched below) for intimate sum mer parties." ¦ Mrs. W.

Another navy cartwheel hat Mrs. Butler combines with a Schiaparelli en semble of striped tie silk dress and natural colored linen coat with faced lapels of the silk. "This is my favorite new costume and I believe, will be very wearable in town and for many occasions all sum mer." The dress is very simple with metal hooks at the shoulder and bars on a wide leather belt. An ascot scarf is pinned with a huge metal sword fish. ¦ Mrs. Frank Sims, dressed in a green and white print crepe for tea, paused for several minutes to discuss her summer wardrobe saying, "This is the sort of thing I'll wear in town for many occasions — and to the races. Today I am wearing it to tea." With the print is worn a large navy hat with a bouquet of green, white and red flowers dipping the brim in front. By The Chicagoenne MISS FRANCES WEARY Max to Win With a Dash of Racing and Baseball Tossed In By Kenneth D. Fry THERE have been few, if any, heavy weight championship fights in the sordid history of boxing which have more possibilities than the impending brawl involving that saber-toothed tiger, Primo Camera, and that — apologies to Collier's — - big gong-and-dance-man, Max Baer, who has cut himself more ways than a lunch- counter steak. In keeping with the profession it is best to enumerate the facts of the case early. Therefore, Camera and Baer will fight — or something — at the Madison Square Garden arena on June 14, at low tide. It might easily be low tide in boxing, too. This so-called fight might be the battle of history. Also, it might be the worst fiasco ever foisted on the eager and gullible cash customers. If this brawl is as bad as its possibilities, then the Annie Oakley fans will be cheated, too, and should sue for mental anguish, or whatever grounds are mentioned when you want to go step ping with someone else. Of course, if Max Baer, who hammers his head on iron pipes to toughen his skull (the optimist), fights as I know he can fight, then he will give the man mountain a big stomach ache, and the man mountain will collapse, whoosh! Also if Max fights with his mind on Jean Harlow, as some seem to think he'll do, then Primo Roasto Beefo will shove him out of the running. And, naturally, since the fight will be staged within the boundaries of the sover eign State of New York, there is also the decision of the judges to consider. Their verdict, if history means anything, might have nothing whatever to do with the fight, or what happens in the fight. Baer seems to have tied himself in a knot. The present whispering campaign seems to indicate that if Baer wins the title, as he will if he wishes, he will take unto himself a bride named Jean Harlow, a fluffy-haired screen siren who is by no means unaccus tomed to being a bride. Personally, I can't see how Max is going to win unless he loses. The last time I saw Max he was dancing with my boss's wife. He didn't know the lady was my boss's wife, and knowing Max, I pondered deeply the prob lem of finding another job. Another unique angle to this heavy weight brawl is the radio business. Five weeks before the fight, Max Baer found himself sold on the air, which is distinctly better than being sold down the river. (Ed. Note: What river?) Consequently, during what he calls training at Asbury Park, Max must find time to approach the microphone several times each week for a healthy sum of cash money to take part in a program in which his name is featured over a nation wide hookup. Imagine, the guy gets paid large dough for a big ballyhoo for his own fight. Prognostication department: Max Baer to win, Primo Camera to place. At this time, witKthe Kentucky Derby and the Preakness truly run, and the American Derby the next event of note around these parts, it is fit' ting to call your thread-bare attention, to the providential fortune of Mrs; Isabel Dodge Sloane. Her Time Clock won the Florida Derby. Her Cavalcade came clat tering home in the Chesapeake Stakes and the Kentucky Derby. Her High Quest out- whiskered Cavalcade in the Preakness. It must be the honor. She needed that stake money like I need — oh, you guess, I give up. The tallyhos have long since gone the way of the old Washington Park race track and the maidenly blush. But Col. Matt Winn has another Washington Park race track in Homewood, the loveliest rac ing spot in this part of the country, if a personal opinion may be ventured. Here on June 2 will gather the best of the three year olds to revive the time-honored Ameri can Derby, a race rich in the tradition of the thoroughbred. Cavalcade has been named along with his stablemates, Time Clock and Anarchy, and he will meet for the first time the good Chicstraw and First Minstrel. But it would seem that Mrs. Sloane might win another major stake. And while horses are cluttering up the landscape, Equipoise goes on meandering around race tracks, collecting a few odd bucks here and there as he works steadily along toward that all-time money winning record of Sun Beau's. By winning the Dixie Handicap at the juicy odds of 1-10, Equipoise boosted his total figure to $332,- 960, still a good bit short of Sun Beau's bank balance of $376,744, considering that Equipoise must get his in smaller bits from now on. It is talked about that the Cub officials are eyeing those turnstile figures with twitching eyes. Galloping along at the top of the league the Bruins didn't draw worth a cent early in the cam paign, despite the presence of Mr. Chuck Klein, and despite some unforeseen capable throwing on the parts of Messrs. Warneke, Bush, Root and Malone. To say nothing of Lee, whose first two victories were turned in in such style that Malone and Root probably started counting their years. While this department has a great deal of respect for the ability of Lon Warneke, the shuffling and quiet boy hero of Arkan sas, there is something peculiarly fitting in the triumphs of Guy Bush. Guy gives the lie to the popular belief that ball players don't work. Baby, he struggles. Every pitch has everything on it that Bush knows how to put on it. And even if Guy is somewhat Gilbert- and- Sullivanian at bat, he works as hard as he does on the mound. Somehow it is more satisfying to see a hard-working guy like Bush get somewhere than it is to see War neke nonchalantly nick corners so easily, endowed as he is with more natural pitch ing ability than any hurler in either league, excepting possibly Carl Hubbell. It is particularly satisfying to this de partment to call attention to the deeds of Chuck Klein. Having mentioned that Klein would do a swell job for the Cubs, this department goes right ahead forgetting that the Black Hawks were picked to finish somewhere in the alley and that Mata Han* was selected as the horse to beat in the Derby. I am not quite ready to join Hugh Fullerton yet. Baseball, as usual, needs more color. That is an old story, of course, but it stands. We need more umpire-baiting, more per sonal feuds, more lads coming in with spikes flying, kicking up clouds of dust and the devil take the unwary. Somebody might solve it by signing Dillinger to play second base. Everybody is too damned polite. As for the brethren on the south side, it's just too bad. This department, frankly, never was very warm over Fonseca as a manager. And at the moment our sym pathy is with Jimmy Dykes. The football people are gradually coming around to the belief that the best coach in the world can't go places without material. There is no particular reason to think that baseball is a stepchild in this respect. All this with due allowance for the natural difficulties be setting the White Sox in the matter of try ing to make deals with their American league brethren. But you can't win pen- nants by driving in two runs in the home half and then booting in three for the oppo sition in the next. Not being a fisher man, this department is constantly in awe when advocates of the sport of snaring the wily piscatorial species begin to chatter. Ernest Woodbridge, who has a beautiful resort at Spooner, Wis., sends this one along. It seems that Jean Paul King, the radio announcer, went fishing some time ago. Jean cast, placing his bait perfectly near some lily pads. He was beginning to reel his line in (Continued on page 41) 36 The Chicagoan Table Topics An Attentive Ear to the Stories About Town By William H. Hanna ONE OF THE BEST OF THE MANY GOOD stories that come out of Indiana was re peated to me last week-end. The late Craw ford Fairbanks, multimillionaire of Terre Haute, sent a three hundred and fifty dollar order on Chase National of New York to a nephew in Switzerland. The order arrived made out to three hundred and fifty thou sand and the nephew let out a whoop for Uncle Crawford. Uncle Crawford must have decided to disburse while he was alive and it was certainly most thoughtful. The nephew immediately spent about thirty thousand, but almost as quickly the error was discovered by the bank. When told about the mistake the young man promptly returned three hundred and twenty thou sand and, of course, couldn't include the thirty, as it had been very definitely spent. Chase National stood the thirty thousand. VALLY WIESELTHIER, THE DISARMING VIEN- nese sculptress, who, incidentally, did the panels in the Ford building at the Fair, made this nice observation. "Venever I talk" — Vally has a magnificent accent — "to men with their vives around, dose vives vatch me very carefully. I do not under stand it. European voomen are not jealous of their hoosbands. Is it because the Ameri can vooman is not sure of hoosband, please?" The American hoosband is arriv ing slowly but surely, Vally. LAST YEAR WOMEN'S CLOTHES WERE "iM- portant." This year they're "casual." At the rate things are going they'll be out of the question next year. IT OCCURS TO ME THAT THE BEST PART OF ordering crepe suzettes is the pleasure of watching the headwaiter, and frequently the manager, worrying around and around the table. Chicago still hasn't learned to serve them in restaurants as the best after theatre bite. New York's doing it with a glass of champagne for a dollar and a quarter. WONDER WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE SULKA ties that don't ever appeal to anyone? If they go to foreign markets, like broken lines of shoes and old Victrola records go to South America, we'll wager those ties wind up in Tunis. THE RUMOR THAT CHICAGO IS TO HAVE ONE of the two new Radio Cities to be started soon brings up an old argument of mine that Chicago should have had the original Radio City. The appeal of such a center is to the masses and, rather than at the ends of a country, it might well be at the cross roads. No Man's Land is mentioned for the Chicago project and one of the backers is a prominent newspaper publisher. DUTIFUL POLICEMAN'S REMARK TO A YOUTH on the beach near the Drake. "All right, Tartan, put on the top to that suit." JOHN BLACK, PRESIDENT OF THE BAR ASSO- ciation, had to talk fast to a dinner partner recently. He suddenly and firmly announced to the lady that he knew of two sisters who died a hundred and fifty years apart. All things considered and feeling that half the table had cen tered their attention upon the gentleman and his statement, the dinner partner politely laughed it off. Mr. Black insisted he knew two such sisters. The lady looked at him with a fixed gaze. Mr. Black began to explain that one of the sisters died in infancy, and then picked up his fork and started eating. Rather than wait for the impossible explanation the dinner partner remarked about something else. "Well," resumed Mr. Black, "the second was born forty years later and lived to be a hundred and ten." A CERTAIN PERSON SAYS SHE NEVER SAW so many votes promised around an elec tion time and in so short a while as at a recent benefit bridge. One of the ladies be longing to the organization had a brother running for office, said brother also a florist. Long-stemmed roses with little tags bearing the suggestion to vote for the gentleman were given to each and every lady. One of the surer ways . to weaken a woman's resistance. A YOUNG IRISH-JAPANESE GIRL OF CHICAGO, Sonya Osato, was of such promise to Massine of the Monte Carlo Ballet that he gave her a three-year contract after watch ing her dance a few moments for him. An exquisite youngster of fourteen, she works from nine in the morning until twelve at night for her art, and grows starry-eyed at the thought of some day appearing before the Empress of Japan.

THE WARMER THE EVENINGS THE HOTTER the arguments in Bughouse Square by the Newberry Library these nights. Every form of human discontent and ill, and the remedy for it, is discussed. Frequently one speaker introduces the next to ascend the soapbox. The introduction in some cases would put the niceties and formalities of the most capitalistic introduction to shame. Listening to a communist, I found out that George Washington and Alexander Hamil ton stand pretty well with the boys because they, too, were revolutionists. This same agitator offered at the conclusion of his speech — "The Communist Manifestor — de greatest literary gem that was ever wrote — ten cents the copy." Two blind singers whine, "You'll never miss your Mother till she's gone," while nearby a fanatic exhorts against the sex entertainments of today. Several young toughs draw a wise-cracking crowd by their offers to fight until they drop for a seventy-five cent purse. They explain they're unemployed and have no other way to make enough for food and lodging. «^- THE WIFE OF A FORMER CITY OFFICIAL WAS robbed of a large diamond ring some time ago. When the woman told me the story of the hold-up, noticing I saw a dia mond a little smaller than a motor head light on her finger, she explained that it replaced the stolen one. "Oh," she con tinued, "but you have no idea how hard it is to get a round cut diamond these days. All the big ones are square." Oh, yes I do, I once figured on an engagement ring that a girl could show without being osten tatious or having to explain anything. MAURICE L.

The Style Is the Man G. McStay Jaclson, Stylist By Kathryn E. Ritchie "11 /TODERN decoration?" said Annabelle thoughtfully. \f I "I don't know. To me it's a little like seeing the ™ -"- clothes before you do the person, if you know what I mean. You think, 'What a gorgeous gown!' But it makes you forget what you really intended to say to the person.'" It's a rather common attitude, this one of Annabelle's. It was the first reaction of many visitors to A Century of Progress last summer, where they were literally drenched with modern ism. It is the feeling many others still have today toward mod ern furniture and decoration in spite of the fact that it has been toned down, smoothed off along the edges, and shorn of those pristine horrors which saddled themselves like an incubus on modern furniture design in its earliest stages. "Modernism is an immigrant,11 say many who are opposed to it on strictly nationalistic grounds. "It originated in Europe where people are tired of their traditions. Why can't we de velop something new and of our own here in the United States which will be typically American?" Perhaps we shall. Perhaps, in fact, we are already doing so. "Typically American," however, means many things to many people. Time was when an American was simply an English man transplanted to this country. Today an American is apt to be a blend of many nationalities. It is in this composite character that our Americanism lies. We have needed the immigrant to make us what we are. And it is in this sense of blending that we are developing something which is typi cally our own in the world of decoration here in the United States. Having no traditions of our own save that of liberty, we have naturally absorbed whatever has pleased us of the traditions of other nations. Some we have accepted in toto; others, with our characteristic feeling for liberty, we have changed and adapted in whatever way we have liked in accordance with the require ments of this conglomerate nature of ours. Europe, for in stance, has its old traditional styles in furniture, its Italian, Spanish, French Provincial, Louis XVI, Tudor, Queen Anne, Eighteenth Century, and recently, its modern. In the United States we have all of these also, assembled under one roof as it were, but we have in addition the so-called Classic Modern type of decoration which Europe does not have and which is our own distinctly American invention, developed out of that which has come to us from abroad. Last summer during the first year of A Century of Progress in Chicago visitors to Marshall Field and Company's State Street store saw in the so-called "Tradition Apartment" on the eighth floor in the Furniture Section some thing concerning which a few of them may have heard rumors, but which still fewer of them had seen before in actuality. They saw a dining-room papered in silver with a yellow llama skin rug on the floor, with fruitwood chairs of a charming graceful design about a table having a deep blue mirror glass top. There were curtains of a shimmering silver net over 38 The Chicagoan This mantel grouping styled by G. McStay Jackson, exempli fies the light, graceful spirit of the new decoration. White fireplace is surrounded by pedestals and flower urns, orna mented with simple striping of color, chromium andirons and small mantel decorations. Ceres yellow at the windows, and beautiful accessories of metal and glass. From this dining-room they passed into a living-room with celestial blue walls with cream woodwork, a carpet of azure blue with border lines of cream. The furniture was of fruit- wood. There was a bed-room done in shades of delicate spring pink, including even some of the furniture itself, where the color was impregnated in an extremely beautiful wood veneer in such a way as not to obscure but to bring out the essential loveliness of grain and texture of the wood. It was this apartment in Field's which gave thousands of visitors to Chicago their first glimpse of Classic Modern decora tion. After the glaring eccentricities of A Century of Progress, it was a delight to come upon this small self-contained spot with its quiet winning manners, its grace and beauty of imagi nation. It had an appeal for many persons which modernism could never have. They saw in it something they could under- sand, for the Classic Modern is based on certain more or less familiar styles of the Eighteenth Century in France and Eng land, including those which were influenced by Greek ideas, namely, the Regency, Empire, Directoire. A simplification here, an adaptation there, a scaling down of size, the introduc tion of modern woods, fabrics, materials, colors and certain details of line and structure — this is the essence of the Classic Modern which thus is newer than the traditional and the modern, yet suggests both of them. It combines the livableness and familiarity of the former with the freshness of the latter. Individual decorators here and there throughout the country no doubt created Classic Modern in teriors in private homes. As such their influence has been limited. It is unquestioned, however, that Marshall Field and Company, in creating on its display floor a Classic Modern apartment open and available for everyone to see, including the hundreds of thousands of World's Fair visitors who thronged through that vast establishment last summer, has been as influential in spreading the cult of the Classic Modern into the far corners of the United States as A Century of Progress was in acquainting the country's populace with Modernism. In both cases the end was accomplished in a visual, tangible man ner such as no amount of newspaper reading could have done. Back of each picture there was, of course, an individual or individuals who supplied the ideas and did the work.

McStay Jackson, who, up until the fall of 1933, had been associated with Field's for a period of fourteen years in the Interior Decorating department and is now associated with various manufacturers in the creation of furniture designed in accord ance with his distinctive style. A stylist of originality with an unusually fine sense of pro portion and an exquisite feeling for color, Mr. Jackson, through the connections he has had in the past and the new ones he has made today, has probably provided a greater stimulus to the Classic Modern type of decoration in this country than any other individual. It was he who planned the backgrounds and the individual pieces of furniture for the "Tradition Apart ment" as well as for the entire furniture section of which it is a part. These pieces of furniture have all the grace and charm of the best Eighteenth Century English pieces. They are, how ever, executed in such woods as French walnut, fruitwood, deal, bleached mahogany, colored veneers, and any one of a variety of other beautiful woods which have come into modern favor. They are pieces which are scaled down admirably to the smaller dimensions of present-day houses and apartments. You see among them, for instance, a graceful little table which reminds you of Biedermeier but which is also modern; a Chippendale book-case built of pine; a Directoire chair which is given a fresh and interesting appearance by the use of a mod ern rough-textured fabric; a small sofa which combines the feeling of Sheraton and Directoire. You see everywhere a charming sense of color — clear, light, bright, springlike colors, used in lovely combination with various woods. Through it all you come to recognise a certain freshness of idea and original ity, a delicacy of feeling, without, however, any suggestion of frailty, all of which are characteristics of the Jackson style, for there unquestionably is such a style, as readily identifiable as that of other originalists in architecture, painting, or writing. Mr. Jackson became a Classic Modernist gradually. It is interesting to note that his early concern was with antiques, which he soon came to realize, however, were too large, too heavy, and in many cases too expensive for the mod erate-sized homes of today in America. He, therefore, proceeded to scale down for domestic manufacture many of these antiques which he loved, thereby creating a body of beautiful Eighteenth Century pieces of a small size which could be sold at prices below those of antiques and would find a ready market among persons who could not afford genuine antiques. This was given the name of "Tradition Furniture" and as such it has become famous at Field's. From Tradition Furniture, as it was devel oped at the beginning of the depression years, Mr. Jackson be gan to evolve, in accordance with a certain idea in the back of his head, pieces of what are now identified as Classic Modern. This idea was that as the world began to emerge from the depression people were going to look about them for something new and vital and beautiful. For many of them modern fur niture would have no appeal. They were going to want to cast off from them everything which would remind them of the 40 The Chicagoan For an odd corner in the library, or elsewhere, there is this graceful maga zine or book table of painted wood in a shade known as "Merry Widow blush" and white. On it stands a red lamp. dull, drear days through which they had just passed. In their homes they were going to demand freshness and clearness of line, color, surface, and idea. They were going to want grace and airiness and sunshine. For this reason there is in the Classic Modern of G. McStay Jackson simplicity, a grace and a free dom from fussy ornamentation and over-dressing. There are plain, beautiful surfaces, in walls, floors, furniture. Orna mentation is introduced in the way of charming lighting fix tures, of tole, wire, crystal, and in small accessories of chro mium, silver, and other metals, small porcelains and modern glassware. Today Mr. Jackson is recognized as a stylist of importance. His talents and abilities are being employed in restyling the fur niture lines of a number of manufacturers, as well as devel oping accessories suitable for use with this type of furniture. These accessories include such pieces as screens, mirrors, plant stands, wall brackets, small tables, picture frames, fabrics, floor coverings and all related home furnishings. Furniture designers of two and three centuries ago were allowed to work along their own individual and original lines unhampered by considerations of mass production, public de mand, quick turnover, stockholders1 interests as we know them today, plus all the importunities of modern merchandising and marketing. Mr. Jackson's years of merchandising experience with two of the largest retail stores in the world — Liberty's of London and Marshall Field and Company in Chicago — have given him a valuable understanding of the importance of these factors in present-day designing.

The realists have persuaded me to the belief that much of the gutter vocabulary is of genuine pertinence to their craft, that a large if not major portion of the blasphemous, vile and obscene in their copy is justified by artistic requirement. I do not attack the topic at this time because I have relinquished this opinion, or because I have sickened on this or that book, but because I believe it is time to draw at least one line beyond which the practice should not be permitted to spread. I do not read many magazines, nor any regularly. Within the past month, though, I have come upon the two commoner synonyms for illegitimate offspring in two of my favorite and most respected periodicals, Fortune and Harper's Bazaar. Used as I am to reading these and related words between book cov ers, discovery of them in the pages of these publications gave me a start. I am as opposed as Mencken to censorship in any of its official forms, but I am firm or firmer in my conviction that the oldfashioned institution known as The Editor was and is an essential and indispensable factor in what is known as the pub lishing business. I have yet to meet a member of this serenely thoughtful profession who would argue that there is or can be justification for this kind of thing in a magazine that goes, necessarily, to large numbers of subscribers whose purchase of a protracted series of consecutive issues deprives them auto matically of the opportunity to inspect each single copy before introducing it into the home or rejecting it as unsuitable for family reading. Perhaps I am without warrant in assuming that the august editors of Fortune and Harper's Bazaar have per mitted themselves to come under the dubious spell of the bound novelists. It might be kinder to assume that they were golfing on press day. My point, though, is that nothing the realists have dished up to date is worth the probable consequence of these eminent magazines' widely aped examples.

K. The Land of Plenty — Robert Cantwell — Farrar and Rine- hart: A plaintive note of criticism creeps in. "Why must authors as talented and vigorous as Robert Cantwell choose a dung heap for glorification." With absolute realism the author vividly describes the oppressions, depravities, and lusts of a small western mill town.

He begins with a history of Bohemia, analyzing its influences upon artists and trends. The work includes a study of our own American and Mexican artists to whom the author looks for great things if they succeed in breaking from the French influence. Inas much as it is the author's belief that art must spring from the life of the times and have meaning for a large number of people,. he is very critical of those artists whose work shows merely an interest in methods of painting rather than an interest in making events in life more intelligible to many. — P.

I don't know just why I should drop into this job, or what brought the inspiration — ¦ my business is writing about the lure of Hawaii and other points south — but somebody wanted a travel yarn and a recent Matson Line folder has intrigued me. It deals with South America, so— what say?— shall we dig around a bit in Inca ruins and dance the carioca on the boulevards of Rio? "Drifting down to Rio!" . . . along the romantic trails of Cortes and Magellan . . . sailing a tropic sea where the sun rides the meridian, and driving south to the bleak waters that bathe the rocky shores of Punta Arenas, now called Mage- llanes! How's that for a starter? Want to hear more? Check! Just for convenience in "following through" let's board that Matson liner they're publicizing and tag along its wake. It's September in San Francisco, and the chill of coming winter is brushing gently against Chicago roof 'tops. The Malolo is heading southward and we're aboard. Blue water . . . leisure . . . and tendrils of white cloud chip ping upward toward the sun. Los Angeles behind ... the distant shores of Baja California . . . then memories of Balboa and a day ashore. We skirt farther southward to Peru, the land of the ancient Incas. I tried to get a job in Lima, once. Didn't get an answer. It's up, high up, in the edge of the Andes; and once was the capital of all Spanish America. Inca burial grounds . . . the ruins of an ancient city ... a famous cathedral and the revered bones of Pisarro, the Spanish conqueror of Old Peru. A University ... a vice-regal Palace . . . and lunch at the Bolivar Hotel! Striking contrasts to the port of Salaverry, seen yesterday, and the ruins of Chan Chan, that old Metropo lis of the early Coast Incas. Back to Callao and southward to Chile. (Get out your maps; there's a strange fact coming!) Valparaiso, the west coast's largest commercial city; and Punta Arenas, now called Magellanes, furthest city south in all the world. Just "under the hill" from wintry Cape Horn ... a long day's motor ride from the South Shetland Islands . . . ten hours by plane from Admiral Byrd! To reach this city of one-storied homes, where 27,000 hu mans eke their living within sight of the fire- dotted slopes of Tierra del Fuego, we ply the waters that Magellan used in his journey from East to West in 1520! The Argentine . . . Buenos Aires . . . and five days for the Eucharistic Congress, or, if you prefer, theatres . . . night clubs . . . horse racing . . . and an excursion to that famed resort known as El Tigre!

Still northward ... a place as far south of the Equator as San Francisco is north ... the mouth of the Uruguay . . . a city that is known as Montevideo, which musical tongues lilt into "Montay-vee-day'-oh" ... a quaint place with flat-roofed homes with windows barred and patios seductive in their quiet seclusion. An outbound sailing at high noon. Brazil, the Unknown! A vast country laced with rivers and virgin jungle and untouched hills of gold, so it is said. We stop at Santos, and Sao Paulo of holiday and snake farm fame; and again at Rio, glorious Rio of indescribably delicate beauty, Rio of the white marble promenade and palm-lined thorough fares, Rio of the tinted villas and the Sugar Loaf and Tijuca Mountains and the Devil's Caves, known locally as Furnas de Agassiz! And then we step out from the continent to the Island of Trinidad across the Gulf of Paria from Venezuela. Here, in the Port of Spain, is a luxuriant tropical gem of the Carribean whose history dates back to 1498 when Columbus first discovered it. It is known throughout the world for its seemingly inexaustible natural asphalt. In Venezuela, which you really ought to pronouce as "Ven- ice-ZwelMa" if you would be in proper South American style, we shall stop at Caracas of the shady squares and lunch in a Spanish patio and then bid adios when we turn our faces homeward through the Panama Canal. Gateways to youth and adventure and romance! Gateways to a New World south of the Equator. "Nine countries en circled in fifty-six days; fourteen ports (including Los Angeles) southward of San Francisco." That's what the "folder" says; that's where we've been today. Didja like it? Grooming the Bride For that Classic, the June Wedding By Lillian M. Cook WELLA, wella, and another World's Fair opens. With a century and one year of progress to contemplate, it is hard to concentrate on trivialities, but June approaches. When there is a June there are always brides, and to the bridal contingent, such trifles as we deal in are tremendous. If we were a bride, or any accessory to a marriage during the next few months, we would immediately pull up to a mir ror, notebook in hand, and make a few critical observations. "Figure — a little hippy, and faintly convex under the belt? Not so good— half the fun of wearing ivory satin is looking fragile in it." (Whisper— Stevens' Silhouette Shop was created for just such situations. Phone them at once for a course of treat ments. The Wilson Method of Body Building is firm but gentle, and you will find it pleasantly stimulating to have those pounds slapped and steamed away.)

If every bit of hair were brushed up instead of down, away from my face and neck, I might achieve that pensive look Diana Wynyard does so well. Dermott will be in Stevens' Powder Box a few more weeks — I must have him design my coiffure before he leaves. "Horrors! — Is that a crow's foot? Me, twenty -two, and a wrinkle under my eye. It wasn't there a month ago. Of course, I was up till four this morning and five Thursday. I'll chalk up a little sleep between now and the twenty-fifth, sister. But I had better see Elisabeth Arden in a hurry. It's all right to look fragile and pensive, but after all, this is my wedding, not my wake. I do want to look alive. A few rousing facial treatments will take care of that. "What else? Hands, toes — manicures and pedicures — getting a little tan and freckled, I'll have to use some bleach cream — perfume, a lighter shade of lipstick, some new hand lotion — a kit of beauty stuff to take away with me. And sachets for my lingerie — bath salts, toilet water — oh, dear!" Op course, if we were not a bride or a bridesmaid, but a bride's best friend, we would buy ourselves two guest towels and a tray cover, and send the bride a few things she will really need. Did it ever occur to you that a box of exquisite soap might sweeten the course of a honeymoon? Those dinky, paper-wrapped chips that hotels provide are dis' couraging enough to take the edge off of any romance. Almost a classic among well-bred soaps is Yardley's Old English Lav ender, with its persuasive scent. To accompany it, Yardley has just introduced Lavendomeal, a fragrant mealy powder to soften and sweeten one's bath water. It comes in a good' looking wooden drum that won't warp if it should be acci' dentally splashed on. Last fall Matchabelli introduced Abano Oil, a pungently pine-scented oil for the bath, and since then a whole school of bath accessories have appeared. Helena Rubinstein presents Enchante Bath Essence and Enchante Bath Powder, both pleasant to use, and so handsomely packaged that she'll keep them on top of her dressing table. If your bride is going to be anywhere near a beach this sum' mer, give her one of Dorothy Gray's new beauty kits. The larger one is made of cork and looks like a binocular case. In it are jars of Sunburn Cream and Sensitive Skin Cream, a can of talcum powder, an indelible lipstick, a sizable mirror, and room for a comb, cigarettes, goggles and what have you? A smaller case, of glazed white pique, contains the Dorothy Gray Sunburn Cream, and Sensitive Skin Cream. The bride probably won't buy much per' fume after the ceremony, so give it to her now. Lelong's "J" (jasmine) is our idea of a bride's perfume. It is delicate, in' sinuating, not too sophisticated for the church, yet definite in character. Another grand perfume, to be reserved for the more important occasions of her triumphant young matron-hood, is Caron's Bellodgia. It is heavy and worldly' wise, but never exhausting or boring. Patou's Joy is very chi'du, a luxurious perfume that can not be purchased in many places. When in doubt, go to the Perfume Cocktail Bar at Marshall Field and Co., where you will find all the better known perfumes, some exclusive ones, and large glistening bottles, from which you may have an original concoction blended. Babani's perfumes are sold only at Field's in Chicago. Practically every shop in Chicago, including the State Street and Walgreen Stores, carries the Hudnut preparations, and this is due to a securely founded, welbdeserved demand for them. When we were knee-high to a fire-hydrant, we can remember the flourish with which grownup ladies used their Three Flower compacts. The Three Flower odor is still a favorite, and it is available in everything from Hudnut Talcum Powder to per' fume. Hudnut has a number of gift packages, not at all ex' pensive, which fit perfectly into our campaign for giving cos' metics to the bride. As for yourself, we haven't forgotten you a minute, and have lots of news to prove it. Artur, who was once the pride of Elizabeth Arden's hairdressing salon, is now at Pearl Upton's charming new shop on North Michigan. Artur 48 The Chicagoan A NEW PORTRAIT OF GINA VANNA, SOLOIST AT THE FOURTH ANNUAL SPRING CONCERT GIVEN BY THE MUN- DELEIN COLLEGE GLEE CLUB ON MAY II has both imagination and patience, and is coiffing some of the smartest heads in Chicago these days. . . . Another attractive and accessible beauty salon is that of Curtiss, on Oak Street, just around the corner. Curtiss has an extremely smart clien' tele, loyal to his achievements as a coiffure artist. ... If you are in the loop, and in a hurry, hop up to the Joseph Rederer Beauty Salon. It is a quiet little place, high up in the Marshall Field Annex building, and it makes a good ending to an ex hausting shopping tour. Things are so arranged that you can sink into a comfortable chair and enjoy everything from a facial treatment to a permanent wave without stirring. If your skin or hair require highly specialized attention, you must stop in at one of the Harpef Method Shops where difficult skin conditions are skilfully treated; and at Lochefer in the Pittsfield building, or at Thomas Scalp Specialists, where dis- eased or devitalized hair and scalps are restored to health. Then, we assure you, brides, weddings and centuries of progress will slip into a rightfully pleasant place in your mental scheme of things. New in the market, and extremely promising, is the Mist of Dawn Liquid Finishing Cream, brought out by Kathleen Mary Quinlan who, as you know, pioneered in the treatment of eyes with her Strawberry Cream Mask. The new cream comes in white, flesh, cream and tan. pearls to Order f~\ NE of the high spots of my recent trip to New York was ^^ the afternoon I spent in the new salon of Tecla at 608 Fifth Avenue. There I saw an array of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, clips, broaches, studs and other jewel pieces set with the new Tecla Culture Pearls. There was one particular pearl, pink rosee, perfectly round and weighing, they told me, about 78 grains. The price for this single Culture Pearl was $8,000. Culture Pearls, as you know, are actually produced in the shell of the living oyster in cultivated deep sea oyster beds. In fact, the only difference between the Culture Pearl and a regu' lar oriental pearl is the fact that the nucleus of the Culture Pearl is deliberately implanted in the oyster by the hand of man, whereas in the wild or accidental pearl nature implants the nucleus entirely by chance. In the Culture Pearl this nucleus is invariably a tiny fragment of Mother of Pearl and around this the oyster slowly and patiently builds a coating of nacre, which is the true pearl substance. Naturally, since Culture Pearls are obtained from cultivated oyster beds of known location, the cost of gathering them is less than that of procuring accidental pearls; although only a McAVOY 615 NORTH MICHIGAN AVE.

H. Summer Cinema Spring Having Slipped Away By William R. Weaver SPRING having slipped away, if there was a spring, sum mer cinema may be said to have come to the town in the full vigor of righteous expectancy of capacity audiences and ready response. It is to the everlasting credit of the local managers that no gaudy temporary temples of film amusement were raised upon the Fair Grounds. Not even the extrava gantly modern architects whose creations adorn the lakefront could have achieved a finer housing of the silent drama than it has achieved in these parts. Chicago is, you know, if not the cradle of the motion picture, very positively the birthplace of the modern motion picture theatre and program. Visitors seem to know this better than the natives. No matter. The first of the summer pictures set a stiff pace. I do not know which of the three that top my list is best. They are totally different, one to the other, and I recall nothing in either bracket from which to date them. The House of Rothschild, Twentieth Century and Viva Villa axe the productions in men tion. I do not think you can afford to miss any of them. The first named is still in exhibition, as this is written, at the United Artists. I do not know what the long-run record of this theatre is (runs are never forced in Chicago, as they are in New York) but if this engagement continues beyond May 26 I should not be surprised to see it survive Independence Day. There is enough of historical accuracy ^ enough of contemporary parallel and enough of George Arliss in the picture to give it that essential solidarity which generally is found at the bottom of a picture that lives. There is suave technique, excellent pro duction, honest acting and rare attention to detail. It is early to say whether this or Disraeli is Mr. Arliss1 best work, but I vote for this. Historical accuracy is announcedly pitched overboard by Ben Hecht in the introductory note pre ceding Wallace Beery 's priceless impersonation of Villa. This confirms my unswerving conviction that Mr. Hecht does not belong in Hollywood, if anywhere. If there is anything wrong with Viva Villa, and there isn't much, it is the lack of this ever so slightly necessary factual background. Perhaps there were state reasons for omitting mention of Pershing's pitiable pur suit of the bandit, although I can't guess what they were, but the whole credibility of the production suffers by it. In spite of which, and in large part because Mr. Beery is too good an actor to be written into the red by any author that ever hacked a continuity, the film is without equal in its class since sound came in. The mess that was Mexico, the man that was Villa, the reporter that was Lee Tracy and is Stuart Erwin, these are things to remember. The picture is long, loud, occasionally funny and now and then absurd, but don't miss it. Twentieth Century is something else again, something de cidedly else. Here the John Barrymore you've despaired of these last few years gets back to the job that John Barrymore does best. He is, in the picture, a burlesque and delightfully ludicrous libel of David Belasco, Morris Gest, the Shuberts and Svengali. Perhaps no man is better equipped to caricature the stage producer than a Barrymore. Certainly no actor ever ap proached the magnificent ridicule, the excruciating satire and sublime slander he drapes lovingly about them. The while Carole Lombard deals as consummately with their several and sundry Trilbies. I recall no picture in kind. I have scant hope of seeing another. It is a little too finely drawn, a bit too 50 The Chicagoan "Well — another day, another dollar!" maturely conceived and executed, to attract the multitude. I hope I'm mistaken about that. Anyway, don't let it escape you. Somewhere below the three pictures I have mentioned, We're 7\[ot Dressing, Twenty Million Sweet- hearts and Stand Up and Cheer rate as summer entertainment. In the first of these Bing Crosby removes any lingering sus picion you may have that crooning is the limit of his usefulness. Carole Lombard and Burns and Allen give him a lot of help, but he carries the picture most of the time and an hour slips away too quickly. Pat O'Brien, whose film career has been one long wait for just the right spot, finds it in Twenty Million Sweethearts, wherein Dick Powell and Ginger Rogers fall in and out of love, radio programs and comedy situations. O'Brien ought to go places from here. Stand Up and Cheer has been damaged to some extent by faint praise. The hit scored in it by Shirley Temple, best four-year-old since Jackie Coogan, obscured the fact that the producers sought here to do a musical comedy containing wit as well as melody and girls. They suc ceeded admirably. If you have crossed it off your list, rein state it. The unscored comedies of the month are two. Of these Six of a Kind is outstanding among the comedies of the decade. It it a mildly idiotic record of adventures sustained by Charles Ruggles and Mary Boland on a motor trip to California with Burns and Allen and the biggest dog you ever saw as passen gers. W. C. Fields enters the picture after you've laughed yourself out, and you've got it to do over again. Do, by all means. The other comedy, Tarzan and His Mate, is uninten tional. It's the second and presumably last Johnny Weismuller vehicle. Another would kill me. On the serious side, and caught in a single evening, are "Manhattan Melodrama and Finishing School. In the first Wil liam Powell and Clark Gable give a pair of swell performances as the good and bad boys who fight it out along those lines through the last thirty years of New York gang and political activity. This, save for Myrna Loy's extremely inadequate enactment of the girl in both of their lives, is a pretty swell picture. Finishing School, wherein Frances Dee, Ginger Rogers, the oncoming Bruce Cabot and the consummate Billie Burke indict the upper bracket families who pack their young off to the places named — and the places in the bargain — is compe tently done and pointed. I suspect your reaction to it will be determined by the sex of your school-age offspring if any. Among the mysteries I liked The Mystery of Mr. X best.

Dorothy Dell displays in Wharf Angel a per sonality and ability promiseful of much in subsequent and better productions. Spencer Tracy's performance of the prin cipal role in The Show Off is a perfect demonstration of the stoutly disputed theory that a good enough actor doesn't need a vehicle. To his acting, too, Bottoms Up owes the slender claim it has upon your attention. For the rest, Lazy River is a mildly melodramatic bit of lower Mississippi life and death occupying the talent of Robert Young.

And so to press — and the cinema. They're Off The Racing Season Opens Under FitzGerald Direction By Jack McDonald (Begin on page 25) i*ed the Clevelander. The third game was anybody's game, the lead changing six times in the last half, but never by more than half a goal. Cleveland came through to win the final game with a score of eight to seven and a half. Merrill Fink of Boulder Brook played a most spectacu lar game, unfortunately losing his thoroughbred, Step Out. W. D. Fergus of Cleveland was responsible for the Cleveland victory, time and again stopping the Eastern offense single- handed and holding his team together by sheer horsemanship. Fergus will probably be rewarded (?) by a raised handicap next season. Chicago was able to enter only one team in the high goal, or Senior division because of the absence of several of our high goal men. This team, the Chicago Riding Club, made up of W. H. Nicholls, Maxwell Corpenning, and Lieutenant Larry Smith, with Herbert Lorber as alternate, played a three game series with the New York Athletic Club trio. New York took the first game in an overtime period, 9 to 8; Chicago took the second game 10 to 6; and New York won the deciding game, a game much closer than the score of 10 Vi to 5 J/2 indicates. Bill Nicholls was the pride of the West in this series, worth every bit of his seven goal handicap, while Billy Reynolds of the New York A. C. played as fine a Num ber One as even the most exacting critic could desire. With Winston Guest in the lineup, the New York A. C. team became the Eastern entry in the East-West Classic, meet ing a strengthened Western club. Try as the West might, the Eastern team with their superior mounts, were too strong, the series going to the East, 15J/2 to 7 and 9 to 4|/2 in two games. Horses are needed if the West is to be on a par with the East. We have the men, and the experience, but unless horses are ob tained, and good horses, it is useless to try to beat a team mounted on fast, well trained ponies. Ten per cent of the gate receipts should go to a polo fund for the purchase of ponies, an idea suggested by Herbert Lorber and seconded by almost every player in the section, which would ensure enough good mounts to go through a tournament without mishaps. The receipts are large, the expenses comparatively small, yet the players, who received nothing for their efforts, are not even allowed enough money to replace horses that may be injured in games. The Association should have plenty of green stock and enough finished ponies on hand to mount all the good men, and this can be easily done by taking ten per cent of the gate and spending it on horse flesh. The money would be well spent and would result in better games next year. 52 The Chicagoan Big Game At Home A Preview of the Zoo at Brookfield By Ruth G. Bergman IF you want to hunt big game and find it, if you want to take the children to the jungle and bring 'em back alive, just hold your horse power a few more weeks. The most de preciated dollar will then take the entire family on a round trip to Australia with stop-over privileges in Africa, and Eurasia, provided you can find the way to Brookfield, Illinois. Even that isn't so hard as you think at your first attempt (sailing orders to follow) and it is worth much more than the effort to see an exhibition of animal life and human ingenuity that should increase your respect for your furry, feathery and scaly brothers and will not diminish your pride — if you have any — in your own species. In other words, the Chicago Zoological Park is going to open on July 1 or thereabouts at Brookfield, and if that — or thereabouts — isn't a red letter date and an X-marked spot on your calendar and your map, they should be. For seven years the officers of the Chicago Zoological Society have slaved and the citizens of Cook County have paid — or evaded — their taxes to win this fair young bride for the Chicago area. When she is finally unveiled this summer she is guaranteed not to be revealed as the unwanted Leah but as the authentic Rachel for whom the aforementioned Jacobs have striven so faithfully. The park is a 196 acre tract on the Des Plaines River, Chi cago and West Towns Railroad, Salt Creek and Thirty-first street. Seven years ago it was a flat, unremarkable slab of northern Illinois. Today it contains a strip of African veldt, a slice of Australia and enough of Antarctica to accommodate a colony of penguins; all these spots in replica, not a movie. Thus the visitor sees not merely a polar bear but how a polar bear scrambles over the crags and dips into the chilly waters of Greenland. The lions inhabit congenial rocky dens and the aquatic birds have a swimming hole that is just like home W"hat nature omitted when dealing out scenery, man, under the direction of the Chicago Zoological Society, has provided. The plains have sprouted mesas and lakes, cliffs and swamps; and that part of the landscape which has not been revised has been immeasurably improved by judicious planting. When the park is complete (which, in spite of the opening date, will not be this summer) it will include a mountain (without benefit of volcano) where sheep and goats will roam; a lake for Ameri can water fowl; grottos for cougars, wolves, prairie dogs and racoons; plains for herds of bison and white tail deer; and many other geological and zoological wonders. For some years modern zoos have been getting away from the old circus menagerie arrangement where wild animals, removed from all semblance of their native en vironment, snarl behind iron bars. Milwaukee, St. Louis, San Diego and a number of European cities have zoos where an effort has been made to give the animals freedom of movement and to show them in scenes typical of the fatherland. The Chicago Zoological Park is going one step further. Instead of always placing related animals near one another in the tradi tional manner of American zoos, the director is making geo graphical arrangements wherever possible to show together those friendly animals which are neighbors in nature. He will not segregate all birds and mammals but will, for example, group hippos and rhinos with fowl of the same locale. A North American scene will present a panorama of plains and mountains through which will move not only wapiti, antelope, raccoons, and badgers, but also their enemies, the plains wolves and grizzly bears. Though the different species will be perma nently separated by rocky ledges and other scenic barriers of tested effectiveness, the animals will give the appearance of roaming widely at will in their native habitat. In many cases where it is not feasible to exhibit an animal in a natural outdoor setting, his cage will be something of a diorama representing in paint and plaster the place to which he is indigenous. A desert rattler will occupy a small model of an Indian kiva. Certain snakes, which are night prowlers, If you wish BEAUTY all summer. . Madame Rubinstein suggests that you come to the Salon at once.

And if you want to see paint used effectively visit a bird house with green walls en closing cages that have a sky blue background. In order that the freedom and other special privileges which the animals were to enjoy should not in any way endanger visitors, the founders of the park made a preliminary study of many other zoos which have the barless type of dens. Following the most successful practice, particu larly that evolved by the Hagenbeck brothers in the Tierpark, near Hamburg, the builders of the Chicago zoo have separated the animal grottos from the public space by wide moats made invisible to enhance the illusion of freedom but sufficiently wide and deep to insure safety. That is to say, visitors need have no fear of being molested by the permanent residents. What is more difficult is to protect the animals from the humans with their human— and too often inhuman— impulses to frighten the beasts, to offer them food between meals and to throw objects that can cause serious trouble. While protection from this type of danger depends to a large extent upon the intelligence and thoughtfulness of the public — and its cooperation is earnestly solicited — other pro visions for the welfare of the animals will undoubtedly make this one of the healthiest and most comfortable communities in the history of zoological parks, and that history extends back to 1100 B. C. A central heating plant, controlled refrigeration and humidifying devices will simulate climatic conditions from the polar regions to the equator. Practically all the enclosures have a southern exposure to insure the maximum amount of sunlight during the warm months when the animals will live in the open. Their indoor quarters are roofed with ultra violet glass. Behind the outdoor enclosures there are retiring dens in which animals will find comfortably regulated tempera* tures and refuge from publicity. In general, the floors of the indoor stalls are terrazzo, a material that is far more sanitary than the usual maple flooring and equally warm, in this case, since it is underlaid with heating coils. In each building two ventilating systems, one for the public space and one for the cages, provide a constant change of air at temperatures suitable for both forms of animal life. An independent, high pressure water supply makes possible scrupulous cleanliness and adequate fire protection. The build ings are, of course, of fireproof construction. Much of the animals1 food will be grown on their own truck farm within the grounds. Everything they eat is prepared in a modern community kitchen; but the separate animal houses have cut ting tables, electric plates and refrigerators from which meals can be served in style. A well equipped hospital will serve numerous purposes. Here new arrivals will be quarantined, kept under observation and given the rest cure which is usually needed after a long and nerve racking journey. Maternity wards will provide special care and diet for females and their young. Other special provisions are made for medical and surgical cases. Certainly, home in the forest was never like this. If this makes the zoo sound like a de luxe summer and winter resort for animals that impression should be modified immediately. The object of the Zoological Society has been to build not luxuriously but scientifically, not merely to satisfy the curiosity and entertain the public but also to stimulate interest in the study of zoology 'and provide a graphic means of visual education as well as opportunities for research. While the park is not completely stocked, it already contains more animals than you or I would care to meet alone on a dark night. Primates — monkeys to me — lions, bears, alligators, a hippopotamus and others are already in possession of their new apartments. Mr. George F. Gets and his sons have contributed 143 mammals, 123 birds and four reptiles. Another collection of 236 reptiles makes the park pretty exciting for persons who like snakes— and persons who don't. A company due to land soon in Los Angeles en route to Brookfield includes a pair of African elephants, a pair of black rhinos, a pair of pigmy hippos, three massai giraffes, one Malay tapir, three Siberian tigers, a pair of jaguars and enough others to fill a full sized Noah's ark. 54 The Chicagoan Eventually, the park will probably contain well over a thou sand species of mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates in cluding insects, crustaceans and even single cell animals. While the zoo-going public is quite familiar with the elephant and the giraffe, it has seldom had the opportunity to view dispas sionately and fully protected by glass the normal life of animals at the other end of the scale. It is expected, therefore, that the local insect house will repeat the success of the collection at the London zoo where bees, ants, and spiders vie in popularity with the always entertaining bears and monkeys. Far from neglecting the monkeys, however, the local park will provide them with their own private island where they may cavort to their entire satisfaction and the unending amusement of the spectators. Another special feature will be the exhibit of diving birds whose cages will be connected with a glass tank in order that the public may watch the whole drama of meal time from the moment when the birds are released until, in about two flashes, every fish in the tank has been captured. The home for aquatic birds is one of the novelties, long promised to apartment dwellers, a glass house. Three sides of the building are made up of very large glass cages. The visitor, standing in front of them and looking through their transparent walls sees the birds silhouetted against the sky and trees of the park and the effect is something to write a whole article about, not just a sentence. Along the fourth wall of the building is a realistic marine scene in which birds splash in the water and perch on the shrubs, trees and rocks which enclose it. The pachyderm house looks like some thing hewn out of the native rock; only you know that basalt isn't native to Illinois and instead of cutting through the syn thetic product (all the rock work is concrete) the zoo makers have only applied it to the outside of the building. The result, and a very desirable one, is to prevent the large building from being out of scale with the houses for smaller animals and to provide outdoor playgrounds at each elephant's and hippo's back door. The interior is an excellent example of modern architecture. With its simplicity, its unconcealed structural members and the necessarily rather heavy construction, it ex presses not only its purpose but also something of the ponderous strength of the elephant. Like this building, the lion house is also connected with the out of doors where leopards, tigers and jaguars as well as lions roam through typical habitat scenes. These barless dens are seventy-five feet deep and eighty to eighty-five feet in width. The park is the creation of the Chicago Zoological Society (John T. McCutcheon, president), under the jurisdiction of Cook County's Board of Commissioners and the direction of Edward H. Bean and his son and assistant, Robert Bean, whose ability to govern a large section of the animal kingdom is amply proved by the wisdom they have shown in making it ready for the inhabitants. Mr. Robert Bean came to Chicago via the zoological laboratories of the Uni versity of Wisconsin and the San Diego zoo, of which he was director. Mr. Edward Bean achieved much distinction as director of the Washington Park Zoological Society of Mil waukee by raising young animals in captivity, an achievement which is steadily gaining in importance as species tend to be come extinct and many nations are barring the exportation of rare specimens. In Brookfield, Mr. Bean expects to raise many animals and hopes to propagate birds native to Illinois to stock the forest preserves. It is the expectation of all concerned that the zoo will become an educational institution of decided im portance. To this end, Mr. Bean hopes to have on his staff an educator who can prepare extension work in the public schools and lectures, possibly illustrated by motion pictures, at the park. Meanwhile, prepare to go out to the zoo and enjoy yourself. It is accessible by elevated, surface car, train and motor. The arrangement of an automobile road around the outskirts of the park, with parking spaces opposite each center of attrac tion, will add greatly to the convenience of motorists. Super vised fenced areas will accommodate more than four thousand cars, while an additional two thousand may be parked on the highways near the entrances. That, judging by the enthusiasm of those who have had the privilege of a pre-view, is a modest estimate of prospective attendance. Wouldn't you love to become a new person this fresh June day?

ORCHESTRA DANCING COCKTAIL BAR FOR RESERVATIONS PHONE Victory 6770 CHICAGO GRAND OPERA STAR EVERY EVENING AT 23RD STREET ENTRANCE A CENTURY OF PROGRESS June, 1934 55 The Fair Opens A Preview and a Prediction By Milton S. Mayer (Begin on page 19) gigantic step in the direction of back wards, by the reckoning of its original intention. It has shifted the wonders of science around some, but that end of the works is essentially unchanged. The villages, and the bigger and worser Midway, and the Ford exhibit place A Century of Progress on the highroad of nostalgia. If Rufus Dawes ever believed that homo sapiens wanted something different today from what homo sapiens wanted a hundred, or a thousand years ago, he has, I think, learned better. The Greeks may not have had the word whoopee for it, but that is what it was and is. In addition to the too, too many villages and the other items hitherto heretofore aforementioned, I find another concession to nostalgia in this year's fair. I find it in young Mr. Shepard Vogelgesang's new paint job. I never got around to his basement, as I promised myself I would, to argue him seven ways from Sunday on his accusation that I was going mystic in my talk about the hand of past being on us, 6? etc. That was before he had decided how he would paint the joint. He was thinking about doing it all white, and I said ah-ha, he was trying to recapture the classic as the Columbian Exposition and all the rest of them, tried to recapture it. Ah-ha, I said, he was contemplating backsliding from neo-neocism. Well now, he didn't backslide all the way. Not very far, you may think at first. But when you have filled yourselves full of the 1934 fair, you will find it curiously dominated by white— cold, pure, classic white, distributed cleverly enough in blobs and slabs and slivers to alter the whole color sense of the exposition. Consider last year's rampant courtyard of the Electric group; white. Consider the Hall of Science approached from the south; the cool royal red that is new this year playing second fiddle to the paneled white. Consider the bell-tower of the Hall of Science; white. Consider all the transportation buildings; white. If that is not a reversion to the marble of Caesar and Victoria, I am a Chinaman. Colors there are, ten of them; but there were twenty-six last year. I do not know what I am talking about, but I hold it a concession to nostalgia. So, too, I hold the great snake fountain in the north lagoon (it was not far along when this was written, ten days before the opening^but I have seen the artist's drafts). So, too, I hold the whole vivi- fication of the lagoon— the lights and the restaurants and the concert pavilions. And so, too, I hold the employment of the Chicago and the Detroit symphony bands by the Messrs. Swift and Ford, respectively. All, all a concession to the things that were, unless, as I say, I am a Chinaman. A carnival this world's fair will be, but a relatively proper carnival. Booze will flow from every second faucet, but the nation has had six months of booze, and gluttony of that sort will not be extensive. In addition to booze, the villages will present half -naked, almost altogether naked — by crackey — stark naked women to the eye of the discriminating yokel at every turn — as forecast in dire tones on these pages last month. But the very architecture of the villages themselves will impel the customers to simple, family style pursuits, such as a glass of wine, a schooner of beer, and buy the pretty beads, mister. Old Belgium, the daddy of them all, will hold its own in the village eruption this time, I think, and rightly. As of May 16, the Italian (I was going to recommend that one any way, because my brother is the press agent) and the Black Forest villages seem the most painstakingly faithful and flavor- some. The Colonial (American) village struck me as an up- and-comer, handicapped as it is by being so close to home; in spots it is admirably authentic. The replica of the Globe theatre in the English village (I lost myself in that one) com mands early mention. The others, at post time, are none of them out of the running; the field does seem unwieldy, though. And there, at the 1934 World's Fair, you and I are.

He mastered lettering in six months, became a partner of the preoccupied Colonel Webb, whacking out for him a number of war posters proudly donated to the cause of democracy, and found the money roll ing in, enough of it to finance the building of a house at 1247 Foster avenue and the bringing of parents and family to Chicago. War's-end found him financially com fortable, athletically interested — he was a member of the Y. M. C. A. wrestling team — and hardened but not won over to the American theory of art for hire. Filling in was not art, let tering was merely manual labor performed with paints, posters were fun — he gave up the lot of them and dashed off to Cali fornia to see if the stories about the sunshine were true. He backslid en route, sketching a diary such as you or I would write if we didn't forget to. He met a man on a mountain, a furniture manufacturer from Ohio, and they started north, going nowhere by way of San Francisco, Seattle, British Col umbia, Lake Louise. He got back to Chicago one day in 1920 with innumerable sketches, very definitely numerable dollars, revived artistic ambition and a tremendous appetite. The Barron G. Collier company was beneficiary of this predicament and the pictorial content of car card advertisements improved immensely immediately. But car cards took time. He quit this job in 1922 to enroll again at the Art Institute. He added the Carl Werntz Academy for alternate nights and gave the seventh evening of his week to a special class. For bread and butter purposes he joined the United Studios, then engaged in supplying lobby adorn ment for the mushrooming motion picture theatres, and stepped from this desk to direction of the Balaban and Katz art department. (He is not, as he spends a large part of his time replying to inquirers, related to the Balaban and Katz Katzes.) The cinema was spreading its upholstered spell athwart the world. Sandor 's art department expanded. So did his salary. He explains the phenomenal success of the poster technique he pioneered this simply: he didn't paint posters — he painted. He had hurdled the hazard that had stopped him at Staten Island. He has never since drawn for hire a thing he wouldn't have painted because he wanted to. (My favorite evidence of this is a cover done for this magazine in 1930. I asked him for a beach scene. He brought in, on deadline, a picture of a parade marching down Michigan avenue. We used it — had to — and he still doesn't know that his desire to paint the thing overruled both of us.) In 1924 he married Miss Elsie Engel of Ottawa, Illinois, and Donnie is nine, Joan six. Donnie is Donald and Donald is being permitted to develop himself and his art — they are one — in his own way. This is pretty hard on the neighbors, the family and friends, probably on Donnie, too, but the imp (he's the one in Greenburg's caricature) is uncurbed and, if you believe his father as I do, the weird scrawls with which he covers every available surface are very modern impressions of locomotives, automobiles, street cars and airplanes — the nomad is in every subject he chooses. The nomad in his parent escaped again in 1927 and six months' leave was taken to visit the homeland. The family stayed nine. He painted, painted, painted, made up his mind never to stop. He came back and opened a basement studio in the apartment building where he lived, took over the storied Frank Lloyd Wright studio in the Auditorium tower as a sort of downtown office. Ashton Stevens wrote to Martin Quigley about him and the first of his work to appear in this magazine sparked. John Clayton came back from Rome to direct the advertising and publicity interests of the Chicago Civic Opera and couldn't find an artist who could do opera posters as the Romans do them.

Here's the answer: Less than the price of a highball. Less than the price of a cocktail. And just as much kick as either. Less than the price of a couple of steins that have been pushed up at the bottom and caved in at the sides. And twice as much kick as both. A full twelve-ounce bottle of mellow old Drewrys Ale with its extra-strong alcohol content is the most satisfying summer drink in America today. And apparently the most pop ular, regardless of price.

I am not an art critic and I do not know whether Ray is a great genius or a plain fool. I have alternated between the two opinions with the breaks about even for the six years I have known him. I told him he was crazy when he said he believed he should sign some of his work Sandor instead of A. R. Katz because he thought his cinema posters had prejudiced and cheapened general opinion of his work — but friend and foe ran neck and neck to warn him, when they saw the first Sandor drawings, that this newcomer was as good or better and he'd have to whip up. I told him I thought his idea of painting ancient Hebrew customs in the form of He brew letters was obscure, limited, but he can't keep pace with the demand for them. I still think he was a fool to turn down more money than I dare mention as salary for roving about the country inspecting cinema decor and directing revision, but he said it would interrupt his painting at a crucial point. Prob' ably I'm wrong. This I do know. He has not lifted a finger, not even a telephone receiver, to sell himself or his work. He has wooed no art critic and sought no exhibition. But his paintings are on display in the best galleries in America, his murals keep him busier than a one-armed paper hanger and the art critics covered his Little Gallery in the Auditorium for news as re- porters cover the county building. He has discovered a sub stantial proportion of the artists subsequently discovered and exploited by all the professional discovery discoverers in town. The sound and solvent collectors in this and other areas, rub bing elbows with the unsound and insolvent, stroll into his studio at all sorts of hours, dig among the stacked canvasses for something they like, make him name a price for it and then raise the figure to one that their conscience will stand for, stow their purchase under their arm and go away.

FERRIS was tall, dark, and rather young ish to have achieved the designing and construction of the great wheel that bore his name. We met him on Chicago Day, Oct. 9, 1893. Two eastern cousins, Will Nichols, an engineer, and his brother Tom, a bank teller, had come, bringing a letter to Mr. Ferris from their older brother, Othniel Foster Nichols, also an engineer, who had worked on the Brooklyn Bridge many years before, and also on the New York elevateds. Both Foster and Will had worked with Ferris on the Henderson, Ky., bridge, but Will had thought Ferris might not remember him. Will and Tom had visited the Fair several times, sightseeing and kodaking, and had taken in the doings on Rhode Island Day, Oct. 5, returning with gilt-lettered blue ribbon badges, but had reserved the Wheel visit until we could accompany them on Chicago Day, the following Monday, which was to be a holiday in the fire insurance office in which we were then employed. From Englewood we had come to the Fair in a bus, all Sixty-third Street cars, loaded to bursting and with men and boys on roofs and in windows, having passed us by without stopping. We had managed, finally, to squeeze through one of the Midway turnstiles, out of breath and with clothing rumpled, and to reform our forces, and proceed, in the crush, to the Ferris Wheel. Informed at the office that Mr. Ferris was out, we decided that, as we were there, we might as well leave the letter, take a ride, and see him on our return. This we did, paying our way. Now we were on the ground again, in the little yard beneath the Wheel. Mr. Ferris had returned, but was not then in the office. Just then Will said, "There he is," indi cating a man descending from one of the loading platforms and coming toward us. It was evident he had recognized Will. As it proved, Mr. Ferris, having read the letter, had gone to look for us, but our car hadn't happened to stop at the platform where he had been scanning departing riders. "I was just looking for you," he said. Will introduced us, answered his inquiries about Foster, and we had a little talk. Then Mr. Ferris asked i{ we wouldn't like to have another ride, saying he had some matters to attend to or he would go with us. We said we'd be glad to. Mr. Ferris took us into the office and gave us each a tube containing one of the official visitors' certificates, bearing the seal of the Ferris Wheel Company and the signature of its president, Robert W. Hunt, a prominent Chicago engineer. We believe that not every visitor received one of these documents, for ours bears a very low number, 163, and it was then October. It may have been from Mr. Ferris' own reserve stock. So we took our leave and went up £oi a second trip, this time free. Ferris undoubtedly was one of the great engineers of the time, and his creation a magnificent achievement. There has been only one Ferris Wheel; all the toy imitations have been merely tents wheels, lacking entirely the fascinating grandeur of TODAY'S SMART CENTER . . . yL!4JJL^ Stop at the heart of important social and husiness New York . . .

It was 265 feet high, and there were thirtysix cars, each with forty chairs, so the seating capacity was 1,440. But the card advertisement of the company placed passenger capacity at 2,160, which meant that twenty standees could also be accommodated in each car. The cars were indeed roomy; there were persons standing on each of our trips. The steel forged axle, largest made up to that time, was 33 inches in diameter, 45 feet long, and weighed 70 J4 tons. Total weight of wheel and cars was 2,100 tons, and total amount of steel in motion 1,800 tons. "DERHAPS some description of our rides that day may be of interest. We wrote a youthful story a couple of years later detailing our adventures on that eventful Chicago Day, and have it to refresh our memory. Loading platforms at different levels permitted several sets of passengers to board at a time, the ponderous but easily controlled mechanism then moving on and stopping until each group of cars had its quota, the successive little starts and pauses affording the passengers an ever greater panoramic view as the cars mounted higher. Then the wheel made a complete revolu' tion without stopping, but slowly so that one might get the full benefit of the trip. To say the least, the view was impressive, especially on Chicago Day. Quoting from the old story: "The Midway was filled east and west with a surging, ever'increasing mass of humanity which reminded one of an army of ants. The Cottage Grove cars extended for an interminable distance simply packed with passengers, while frequent trains on the Illinois Central passed by far below, loaded to their utmost capacity with human freight. "Farther east the larger buildings might be seen, and Wooded Island, a spot of dark green surrounded by a border of light blue fringed with white. On the lake they saw excursion steamers with deck'loads of passengers, puffing at the landings; far to the north the Masonic Temple, its outlines dimmed by the smoky atmosphere of the city; in the middle distance, flats and buildings of all kinds; and almost directly beneath, as it seemed, the buildings of the University of Chicago, gray, with red' tiled roofs. A group of football players could be seen, practicing in the newly-christened Marshall Field, as effectually cut off from the crowds as if they lived in another part of the world. "To the west the territory was visibly more sparsely settled, there was much more open country, vacant lots and verdure; but the most striking feature in this section was the vast aggregation of World's Fair hotels, many storied and roomy, with a variety of appellations which it would have puzzled a Dickens to , duplicate. To the south the lake shore, wooded and dotted with hotels, extended as far as the eye could reach, and if the sun had not been so blinding the more southern suburbs might have been seen." It was a great day, with an attendance of 716,881, far exceeding even the hopes of the most optimistic. After the Fair the Ferris Wheel was taken down and set up at Wrightwood Avenue on the North Side. Again it was taken down, and removed to St. Louis for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. It was scrapped in 1906. Mr. Ferris died a few years after the '93 Fair. Mrs. Ferris was married to Francis Schlatter in Pittsburgh in 1897. AS Fort Sheridan was considered in our territory when we ¦*¦ were college correspondent at Lake Forest, we had frc quent occasion to visit the post, always an interesting place. Col. Robert Hall and the Fourth Infantry well upheld its traditions, both military and social. Social affairs included a ball now and then in the officers' mess building, to which persons prominent in Chicago society were invited. Among the officers were many young men not long out of West Point, and the dances, what with the officers1 blue uniforms and brass buttons and the modish gowns of the debutantes, were brilliant affairs. We became acquainted with some of the officers. One, a captain, had come up from the ranks, and he sometimes asked us to lunch at the officers' mess, for, as he complained, he felt pretty much out of things, as the clannish West Pointers didn't fraternize with men who had not known the school on the Hudson. But this captain's name wasn't James G. Harbord. We might be less sympathetic now, having seen how far General Harbord has gone.

TOM MARRIOTT Eagle River Wisconsin to inform us if anything in the way of news "broke" at the Fort, we felt pretty safe. One day there was the suicide of a private in the barracks, the man having used his rifle, pulling — or rather pushing — the trigger with his toe. Then, on Aug. 8, 1897, came this telegram: lieut. daniel Duncan DROWNED THIS P. M. COME DOWN. JOHN. We remembered Lieut. Duncan well, a fine, cleancut boy just out of West Point, a brother of Maj. George B., also stationed at the Fort. The latter has since had a brilliant career, advancing to a major'generalship. We remember the weird scene on the beach that night, with improvised lighting as men in boats grappled for the body of young Duncan, who had drowned while bathing. It was found two days later. We covered the funeral, a military ceremony in peace time, with the flag'draped coffin on a caisson, the band playing a dirge. The young officer had been popular at the Fort. ^7 V //A, r/wr/v/t /¦ej/t?r//r'//i/ my.ffj/' >/" ~¥ ^ ¦ (//>./>•/</«// eivn/tta.

S.AMJf/f////M C^ HICAGOANS, civilians as well as yachtsmen, made much ^ of Sir Thomas Lipton when he came here in the fall of 1906. As donor of the Lipton Cup, competed for annually under the auspices of the Columbia Yacht Club; as one who had large business interests here, and also as one who was the original source of several cups of tea imbibed hereabouts, the ruddy- faced Irishman, undaunted aspirant for the America's Cup, was by no means unknown in Chicago. Prominent citizens who weren't devotees of sailing, as well as prominent citizens who were, joined in giving Sir Thomas a dinner at the Chicago Athletic Association on October 5. A general committee of fiftynine, of which Edward Morris was chair- man, included such representative business, professional, and social leaders as David R. Forgan, Charles L. Deering, John G. Shedd, J. Ogden Armour, Alexander H. Revell, Harold F. McCormick, Medill McCormick, Victor F. Lawson, Frank B. Noyes, James H. Eckels, George E. Foss, Louis F. Swift, Dr. John B. Murphy, Hobart C. Chatfield-Taylor, Ferd W. Peck, Judge Marcus Kavanagh, Charles H. Thome, Edward C. Berriman, and John Farson. The gymnasium, where the banquet was held, was pro- fusely decorated with marine flags and other things nautical. William J. Hynes was the toastmaster, Mayor Edward F. Dunne extended the city's official welcome, Col. J. Hamilton Lewis spoke, George M. Cohan came to sing verses especially composed for the occasion, and George Ade, saying that the occasion was one to emphasize international sport, paid tribute to the guest of honor as "the best international sport on record." Sir Thomas made a good, substantial speech of acknowledg ment, saying that he regarded Chicago as his American home. And, said he: "Chicago is the greatest commercial city in the United States, which is as much as saying that it is the greatest commercial city of the world."

There are new shows in the Empire Room of the Palmer House and at Chez; Paree, and in the Gold Coast Room of The Drake. Ted Weems and his bandsmen now occupy the Empire Room bandshell recently vacated by Richard Cole after a solid year of making music for dinner and supper guests. The Weems unit was a happy pick, and will proba- bly draw the after-theatre crowd as well as the dinner guests. The new Springtime Revue has a novel entertainer. Gali Gali, a magician, who does his tricks on the dance floor and at the floor tables. Larry Adler, the harmonica king, has been held over; so have Lydia and Joresco, ballroom dancers, and Stone and Vernon and their assistants in adagio work. And in the Little Show, presented at ten o'clock each evening, Josephine Buckley and Lorraine Santschi, both very tanned by their recent exposure to Florida's sun, do a new dance routine called Indian Dawn. These two little gels took Sabbatical leave from the Empire Room for eight weeks in the southland where they entertained dinner guests of the Miami Biltmore. While they were there they played reporters for a day and covered Mrs. Roosevelt when she landed at Miami on one of her famous speaking tours. The two Empire Room dancers were received by the First Lady along with the other reporters and photogs, and after the chatting was over, they requested and obtained her autograph. They collected a lot of other autographs, too, among them being the signatures of Al Jolson, Bob Zuppke, Heywood Broun, Bill Corum, Eddie Cantor, Georgie Price, June Knight, Maxie Baer, Primo Camera and Tommy Loughran.

X he new spring revue at Chez Paree is headed by the Tick Tocks, a trio of girls, and Gus Van, famous for his dialect songs and stories. Maurice and Cordova are the current ballroom dance team and Countess Emily von Loesen dances, too. Henry Busse and his orchestra are still on the bandstand and now that the famed Morton Downey is the headliner, the show is complete. The Chez Paree management has a slogan — "All the World's Famous for the World's Fair" — and, while that may seem to be a rather ambitious promise, it's pretty apt to come true. Mike Fritzel and Joey Jacobson, the guiding lights of the Fairbanks Court theatre-restaurant, point out their presen tations of the past which include Harry Richman, Sophie Tucker, Belle Baker, the De Marcos and many other stars, and in the next breath announce that they plan to surpass even this headline record. They assure us that Chicago's night lifers may expect to see such stars as Sophie Tucker, George Jessel, Helen Morgan and Veloz and Yolanda in Chez Paree 's spot light sometime during the Fair's run. Pierre Nuyttens has another spectacular show in the Gold Coast Room of The Drake. It is tagged A Tiight with Cleo patra and, like all of Pierre's shows, it is staged with handsome costumes and effective lighting. Ruth Dennen, soprano, and Enrico Claussi, tenor, hold up the vocal end of the presenta tion. Frances Wilier does a slave dance, and the Trevor Sis ters and the Drake Ballet make up the rest of the three stage presentations. Earl Burtnett and his Hollywood orchestra are on the bandstand. The second Sunday Theatre- Supper at The Drake came off nicely. There wasn't quite the crowd that supported the first, because it was the day after Derby Day and many people who might have been there were trekking back from Louisville with mutuel tickets in their pockets that had held so much lettuce — unless they had picked the fine Brookmeade horse.

There is a dining room and grill where snacks, luncheons and dinners, either maritime or autochthonic, may be obtained. It is under the same management as the Miller High Life Fish Bar on the Fairgrounds which was so famous last year for its delightful cuisine. Carl Hoffmayr and his orchestra have met with a hearty re ception at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in the Marine Dining Room.

Corned t H F BAR RANCH Buffalo, Wyoming Kinc Jly wr ite Frank O. Horton and Sons WHISKY & SODA Throughout the world, whisky and soda, usually Scotch and soda, has been the most popu lar drink for the gentleman, the scholar and the connoisseur. The English gentleman seldom retires without having his Scotch and soda to quiet his nerves, and to assure a good night's sleep. The American people now real ize that this manner of drinking is the most delightful, the most practical, and the most bene ficial to the human body. BILLY BAXTER CLUB SODA is the only important club soda on the American market today; it is the only club soda made fine regardless of cost; its carbona- tion is the highest in the world. Therefore, if the finest of whisky is used with Billy Baxter Club Soda, the result will be abso lutely the finest high-ball that money can buy.
