Clara Kimball Young
The Famous Stage Favorite in "Magda"
CHICAGO claims Clara Kimball Young as its own, for it was there the
great screen star was born some twenty years ago. When she was
quite young, however, her parents removed to Benton Harbor, Michigan,
where the little girl received her education. Her first stage appearance
was made at the tender age of three when she convulsed her hearers by a preco
cious rendition of "Ta Ra Ra Boom De Ye," a popular song of the moment.
While still a very young girl her parents, lured by the call of the Golden West,
left their home in the East and with Clara moved to Nevada. Here the call of
the footlights dimly heard throughout her childhood, grew stronger, and she
obtained permission to leave home in pursuit of the siren, Fame. In Seattle,
through a fortunate bit of influence, she gained her chance and became a member
of a local stock company. She remained in Seattle for the greater part of a year
and then ambition called her to New York. Her first part was with a musical
comedy, but unfortunately for Miss Young, and the rest of the players, the piece
failed and she was forced to seek another job. A short time after, she obtained
obtained an opening in vaudeville and so successful was she that after six months
she was offered a position with the Orpheum Players in Philadelphia. With the
foresight and business that has not only made her a great film star but a pro
ducer as well, Miss Youug saw brilliant possibilities in new fields and her resig
nation from the staff of the Orpheum Players followed. Miss Young is now at
at the head of her own company and during the coming year will be seen in a
series of eight pictures to be distributed by the Select Pictures Corporation. The
first of these is "Magda," a screen arrangement of the famous stage classic and
in it Miss Young adds another leaf to her laurels.

Friday seut orders to every local
and district board to re-examine
energetically men exempted or
placed in deferred classes, to deter
mine the reason of a scarcity of
class 1 men.
Thousands of men in class forr
should be put in classes one and

instructions also ordered investiga
tion to determine if any men hid
been erroneously pm in upper class
es when they should have betn
placed in those lower down.
It is expected that the re arrange
ments will bring into class one more
than 500.000. Cases where regis
trants were married after passage of
the draft act will be carefully con
sidered and if evidence warrants
classification in class one, boards
will proceed to reclass them. Mar

ing incomes probably will be reclassified
