WOMAN'S INFLUENCE ON
MAN SHOWN IN DRAMA |
Feminine Fall and Rise
Those who doubt the world has
progressed during the last two thousand
years should witness the showing
of Allen Holubar's famous Associat-j
ed First National production of the
starring the talented actress,
Dorothy Phillips. The picture will be
show ai the opera house Friday.
"Man-Woman-Marriage" is a condensed
history of the world's progress?a
screen epic and proof positive
of woman's subtle and benign
influence over the destiny of mankind.
In the retrospective Roman scenes
of this stirring modern story, beautiful
Dorothy Phillips is seen as a
Christian slave girl at the court of
the Emperor Constantine. In the
mighty splendor of this potentate's
magnificence is pictured the decad- .
ence of civilization?the period when
man lived for pleasure. It is the pev<d
whose unrestrained orgies were
l taible even in the reign of an Aufruscus
Caes:;:\ In striking contrast
is Dorothy Phillips in the role of a
despised and tor'lived slave steadfastly
refusing to forswear the tenets
Down through the ages, as depicted
in "Man-Woman-Marriage," the
talented Miss Phillips indelibly impresses
the spectator with the influence
for good woman has wielded over
man. In the modern story of this
magnificent film, Miss Phillips is no
less impressive in her role as a woman
of our times.
The story is strong and convincing,
and the work of the star stamps
her as an artist of rare talent and

AKE YOU WORTHY?
A COMMON and frequent complaint 1
^ nowadays anions s?!f-esteei}ied

arc not making satisfactory progress.
With more or less petulance they
declare that their incomes are not i
sufficient to keep them in the style ;
in which they want to live.
Instead of being compelled to de- j
pend on popular shops for their
clothes, they yearn to he in position >
to patronize high-priced tailors and j
dressmakers, and thus in their false ;
estimation keep step with the rich |
hy making repeated shows of fine !
The plebian atmosphere in which
these hapless mortals are surrounded
is most displeasing.
Any real effort to improve their
mental qualifications is apart from j
the question, and contrary to their j

of empty pleasures arid devout dis-:
ciples* at the shrine of prodigality,
these disgruntled young men and
women openly blame The world for
their imagined plight, often condemning
their employers for holding them
down, when as a matter of fact their
employers have nothing whatever to j
do with it.
The man or woman who is really j
desirous of rising to the surface I
where he or she can swim with head j
above water must pull a hard, con- j
linuous stroke, quite regardless of j
what others are doing.
It is the only way to keep at the
top and keep moving ahead.
Drifting is perilous to everybody
who indulges in it, certain in the end
to lead ro disaster by wrecking the
fondest hopes and highest aspirations.
In spite of our vaunted pride of
progress, drifting is becoming a national
habit, particularly among the
puny-minded who bend their knee to
the god of gold rather than to the
god of wisdom.
Every good thing in life is measured
by such persons with the tar?
bearing the dollar mark and its decimals,

BE A <^QOO LOSER
TF WE all liked to lose, this would
*- be a shiftless and an ambitionless
It is natural to want to win in any
competition, business or athletic.
Any self-respect'ng man would like
to feel that he car; outstrip the other
fellow in any race he enters.
He feels chagrined when he loses.

you lose, is poor sportsmanship and
You may feel badly because you
have losr. and you ought to, but remember
that you, and no one else, are
responsible. For if the competition
was one in which you hail no chance

There is such a thing as being so
good a loser that you like to lose. And
there are no competitions run oft in

ing bad when you have lost. You are I
justified in taking yourself into a [

Try to win as hard as you can. If
you lose next time _ make np your;
mind that you will win the next. Determine
that you win win oftener than

nearly 1<>0 per cent as possible.
Then when you do lose, vou can
