O'CONNOR FUNNIEST IRISHMAN
IN THE MOVIES
Edwin O'Connor.
Edwin O'Connor, the critics say, is
the funniest "Irishman" in the
"movie" business.
He is perfectly at home, apparent
ly, in the largest checked suit on the
market and the smallest derby in the
hat shop.
His own face, in its natural state is
really quite a serious physiognomy,
but his "Irish" face is too funny for
words.
He rather fancies looking ludi
crous, for, he says, it takes more real
brains to be funny than almost any
thing else in the amuse-the-people
business.
He is a character man with -the
Edison players at Bronx, New York.

A MASCULINE OUTBREAK
By Berton Braley.
Gee, I'm so weary of ladies who
slouch,
Ladies who slump and who sag;
Sinuous posturings give me a grouch,
Fill me with fumings and fag;
Fashion plates, magazine pictures
and ads,
Flesh-and-blood women as well,
Torture my eyes with this saddest of
fads "
Till I am ready to yell!
Maybe I've mentioned the subject be
fore; Nevertheless I exclaim:
Where are the-vertebrae women once
wore?
Where is an upstanding dame?
Languid and listless and lolling and
limp,
Women come slithering by;
Where is the girl with some get up
and gimp,
Taut, trig and trim to the eye?
Look where I will there's no sign of
relief;
Every one lumps a la Mode;
Fashion has filled me with passion
and grief;
Some day I think I'll explode,
Blow up entirely or hie me away
Far from the well-beaten track,
And there I will peacefully linger and
stay
Till feminine backbones come
back!

success, get a job ia tne Weather
