"From Poor Boy to Pal of Million
aires" may read the title of the life
romance of young St Cyr, who,
posing as a French dandy, startled
New York society last April by mar
rying the immensely wealthy widow
of "Silent" Smith. Old friends now
say they identify him as Jack
Thompson of Waco, Tex., instead of
Trouvttle, France, and declare he has
been newsboy, hotel clerk, haber
dasher's salesman and chorus man.
In 1909 St. Cyr married the wealthy
Mrs. Redfield. She died last Janu
ary and in April he married "Silent"
Smith's widow, who is shown to the?
right of the accompanying picture
St Cyr is shown "snapped" at Palm
Beach, where he is "wintering."

FENDERS WOULD CROWD LOOP,
PLEA OF BIG BUSINESS
Of course big biz is for fenders.
The manufacturers of the city do not
want to see their unfortunate cus
tomers run down by fenderless auto
trucks. Oh, no. They want fenders,
but can't find any that will work.
But the Manufacturers' News,
which peddles information from big
business to big business says, among
other things, that "fenders on motor
cars would increase congestion in thq
loop by 25 per cent"
First, there were no practical fend
ers on the market Then the fender
law was invalid and big biz wants a
good, strong fender law. Next the
law was unfair. Now fenders will
put our loop out of commission.
Fenders will cost between $50 ancj
I $100 apiece . x
