ACTRESS RISES FROM
"E TRA" TO IMPORTANT
ROLE IN "SKIN DEEP"
Marcia Manon Began Her Career in
Europe; Now Well Known.
Starting her screen career as an
"extra" not so long ago, Marcia Ma
non will appear as one of the leads in
the exceptionally strong cast playing
in Thomas H. Ince's special produc
tion, "Skin Deep."
Miss Manon's success on the screen
is an excellent example of what can
be accomplished by study and work.
She started to work in the pictures
as an "extra" at the Lasky. lot. Hay
ing had a little stage experience in
Europe, Miss Manon put it to the best
advantage in every bit of work as
signed to her. The result was that
she attracted the attention of the di
rectors and was therefore given more
Her first piece of real work that
was crowned with success was her
role of the drunken wife in "Stella
Maris." In "Skin Deep," Miss Manon
plays the part of the wiley, cunning
wife of a ringleader in a gang of
crooks. Poisoned by conceit and flat
tory, she yields to the importuning
of another and more dapper member
of the gang and joins him in a' plot
to "railroad" the husband into prison.
The part calls for some particular
work from the actress, being in the
nature of a dual personality role, and
Miss Manon acquits herself with ex
eeptional credit. "Skin Deep" is an
extraordinary "crook" play coming to

At Columbia Saturday and Sunday.
Donald's new picture, which will be n
seen for the first time at the Louisi- r
ana Theatre, commencing Sunday, is N
laid in the mysterious isles of the s
South Seas, made known to readers
of modern literature by Robers Louis e
Stevenson Pierre Loti, Jack London, i.
Somerset Maugham, Frederick O'- t
Brien and othbr authors of high re- t
pute. Miss MacDonald has the role s
of a young woman who has been r
brought up by her mother to hate t
all professore of religion, an an- I
tipathy that is the result of her be? I
ing deserted by her husband, who
was a minister. When the young t
girl is broiught in contact with al
white haired missionary on a far off
isle in the Southern Pacific she dis
covers the peace and comfort and
happiness of true religion. The I
transformation of the young wo
man's character is brought about I
gradually and naturally and this, to- 1
gether with a chamring love story
and a host of dramatic situations,
makes "The Infidel" an unusually
entertaining and interesting picture.
Cauliflorew and Brussels
Both thesq vegetables belong to the
cabbage family. They are dwarf mem
bers of it, but more fitely flavored
and delicate. Cauliflower is really a
group of owers on their stems
bleached by the leaves which encase
them. Brussels sprouts' shduld be
firm well headed and green when
ready to use.
To cook these vegetables, proceed
as in cooking cabbage They may be
boiled, creamed, pickled, escalloped
with cheese, baked with stuffing, or
served as salad after being cooked.
Cauliflower and brussels sprouts
are both valuable for their phosphorus
ani calcium content.

A most iqiideous occasian in Bat- the
on Rouge was.'the opening of the Lit- this
tie Theatre iGuild with its two per- may
formances, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, at onst
the Womaii's Ciub House before a cost
large and appreciative audience of cent
its membership'i Litt
Mrs. ChiAes' E. Coates, the presi- N
dent for 1922-'23, greeted its guests part
as they arrived. Standing with Mrs. thai
Coates were the other officers, Mrs. in 1
Geo. Foos, vice president; Mrs. G. A. thai
Waterman, secretary; Mrs. Henry of
Jastrenski, treasurer; Mrs. W. S. be
Holmes, chairman membership com- has
mittee; and Mrs. David W. Thomas, sea
retiring president. Dr. Coates, Mr.
Waterman and Yarborough also as
sisted Mrs. Coates as ushers.
Just before the performance start- I
ed, words of welcome were extended Bal
by Mrs. Coates for The Little Thea- low
ter, in her usual gracious manner. She no
told how the Guild grew out of the fru
study of modern drama and the dra- cldo
matizing of plays by the members of Sal
the Study Club. "The suggestion to 1Fe
have a little Theatre Guild was made tre
by Mrs. D. W. Thomas," said Mrs. the
Coates, "whose pet idea was the fos- the
tering of a Little Theatre by the Cli
i Study Club. And so Baton Rouge has liti
Fa Little Theatre of its own. The ho
" Guild," she said, "wishes to provide afi
I wholesome amusement, and has no a]
Smonetary desire ercept to produce the ful
" plays. While the Woman's Club Douse
L has and is proyiding for the produc- qu
" tions and ;now through the generosity Cr
Sof Mr. A. E. Rabenhorst, the use of a
, vacant '`ot near by has been appro- M,
t priated for the Guild's shed or work- Fl
. shop;, the- ultimate desire is to own El
our own home." fo:
The Junior Department was ex- de
plained by the president who said that ch
soon the Guild would have them pro- M
duce three plays. One especially in- tic
e teresting fact, she said, was that two
- of the plays that night were writ= Cl
I ten by local, people, and th& thul G
a was done at the invitation of Mr. et.
s Clair Favrot the producer of the
e evening; and the other play was
e written for him.by Doris F. Halman,
a who writes one act plays for Harvard.
The fiirst play, "Flood Waters," was
I written by Mr. Clive Wetherell Ker
e nan, and staged by Mr. Kernan and
iiMrs. Geo.' Foos.
r The play was a tragedy, showing
the effect, the contrast, danger the
's flood waters of th Mississippi have
5 upon those homes, sustenance and
very life 'that are in constant danger
Iand finally the tragic ending where ,
once prosperous and happy homes
e are inundated.d'
1o The secondi play, "The Dog," was
" written by Doris H. Halman, author
1- of a play, w hich Mr. Favrot produced
last year, "Will O' The Wisp." The
writing of. "The Dog," by Miss Hal
man, especially for Mr. Favrot's pro
ductioh at'fThe Little Theatre in Baton
Rouge is quite an honor and Miss
ur Halman MiA' state in her book that
- this was done for Baton Rouge, and
that it was, shown first here. ..
This play,:shows how even a lovely
L," social "oitci,. a murderer, can be
he taught fokileness through love of
Id. his faithf'trdog.
!al The third play was written by Leo
he dosia R. Harris. Before the play,
ps, Mrs. Harris,' in a most interesting
ve talk, gave her personal experiences
with the vodoo cult., In her easly child
- hood, her old mammy was voodoo.
U The impressions this made on the
child's mind led to a study of the
voodoo cult, which was at its height
in New Orleans in 1850. The snake
was the sacred emblem of this cult,
which was introduced from India;
hence, the name "Le Grand Zombi."
Mrs. Harris received the highest
praises, and her play is conceded to
be the best ever produced by the 4
Little Treatre. One of the delightful 4
feautres of this play is that it is re
plete with Louisiana color and with
quaint .creo1i expressions.
After the performance Friday
night, Mrs. Harris was presented by
Mrs. V. V. Sessions, for the Guild,
with a fountajn, pen, and Mr. Favrot
with a silver pencil.
The opening performance is gen
erally tthe hardest because folks are
out of the ihabit, properties lying
over, enthiuliasm to be, brought to
highet pjikt. Mr. Fav rot's produc
tion h$s been a decided success. Par
tieul$y notp4 on 'was the fact that
all three plays were written for the
occasion, and not one of them had
ever be'ofar-i iTiijayed.
Again of intenrt was that two
were written by local people, bring
ing out conditions in Louisiana, her
folklore, and history. Mr. Favrot de- mi
serves the credit not alone for the Ki
production, but for the encourage- th,
ment of local play writing. Mrs. tw
George Foos' painting and Mr. Clive ta
W. Kernan's painting showed their "(
Sexcellent ability in designing and us
painting scenery, they having done it ta
all for this production. fo
In the work shop, mentioned by
Mrs. Coates, there is an exact replica ,
of stage on which the performances ei
are given. The scenery is set and et
rehearsals are held right on this M
stage iii the very'scenery in which H
*the performance is given. Part of o
-this shed is racked so that scenery I
may be stored. This work shop dem- F
t onstrates that matters are facilitated, ai
a costs cut down, and properties con
if centrated, all to the advantage of the
i- With the excellent playing on the
s part of characters in the plays shows bi
s. that Baton Rouge has much talent T
's. in that line, and expresses the hope si
k. that through the Little Theatre, some f
:y of the interesting local history may
S. be presented in such artistic ways as
