little star of the Famous Players
Company adds another screen achieve
ment that surpasses all her previous
triumphs in her delightful Interpre
tation of the role of Peggy In the
photo-production of the famous rom
antic comedy, "Mice and Men". This
role, in which such popular actresses
as Annie Russell and Lady Gertrude
Koilics.Hobertson distinguished them
selves in New York and London, res
pectively, develops the impulses and
whimsicalities of romantic youth, and
it may therefore be readily seen that
Miss Clark is eminently suited to this
captivating impersation. With the ad

which had brought grief to an entire
community and which the cooperation
of an entire community would most
quickly remedy, so far as human effort
could afford remedy. That none of

done for them, reports indicate, had

While here Mr. Hayselden was the
house guest of Ilev. and Mrs. J. K.
Bodel, and Mr. Bodel took him to see
