The Chicago Defender should con
gratulate themselves in having such
a person.me as "Tony" on his staff.
We always look for the Defender
each week to see what he is going to
say. Here's luck to you, "Tony."
We dropped in the Star the other
day, and really we must confess that
we were extremely highly elated
over the high-class photoplays pre
sented at this house. We must urge
our people to give their liberal sup
port to the Star not because it is
owned and controlled by Negroes,
but because they are showing pic
tures that are worth seeing. Mr. T.
Clay Moore is certainly to be con
gratulated on his high plane of man
agement. He sees that only the best
pictures are shown in his bouse.
Monday, a Pathe Serial, "Patrla,"
featuring Mrs. Vernon Castle will
be shown, and on Thursday another
Pathe Serial, "The Mystery of the1
Double Cross," will be shown. Free
ticket to ladles will be given on
these two days. "The Immortal
Flame" will be shown Friday. Get
in the habit of attending the Star.
The Bijou Is still showing high
class ph-tures, and the people turn
out largely each day and night to see
the photo-plays. "Society Night"

popular and some feature picture is

"Mrs. Vernon Castle, the best
known woman In America, Is one of
most charming stars ever seen on
the screen," says Manager T. Clay
Moore, who has been given an oppor
tunity to judge. "She is pretty and
attractive and delightfully feminine.
The idol of society, every one has
heard of her though comparatively
few have been given an opportunity
to see her and those that have, paid
two dollars a seat. We are going to
give our patrons a chance to see hef
