By RUTH MILUETT 1 One face is enough for a woman, j When she is two-faced she doesn't get along very well. An honest an- . swer to the following questions will give you a good idea if you have two faces—and are putting the worst ] one forward. I 1. Do you rave over how well a 1 friend looks and then say to another 1 friend, “Isn’t it a shame the way 1 Dora let herself get fat?” 2. Do you invite people to your ' house and then pick them apart next day? 3. Do you pretend to be a friend of someone you actually dislike? 4. Do you agree with the shocked ' disapproval expressed by one friend of another when you honestly think his actions are justified? 5. Do you say you are tolerant and , yet blame an individual’s faults on his race? 6. Do you do social welfare work and yet refuse to give your maid any time off? 7. Do you listen sympathetically to a friend's troubles—and then tell other people what a dope he is for getting into such a mess? 8. Do you pretend around certain people that you do not drink and think it is terrible—when you do drink? 9. Do you tell two people who are fighting that you think each one of them is exactly right? 10. Do you pretend to be a frierd of a woman and say such things to her husband as “I’ve never seen your wife look so nice. That weight's becoming to her?’’ If you have more than two “Yes” answers—it is time to start getting rid of that second face. * • * WELL KNOWN CAST TO BE FEATURED IN PLAYS HERE Included in the east of “As You Like It’’ and “Hamlet,” the two Shakespearian plays to be present ed at the New Hanover High school Monday afternoon and night by the Avon players, will be eleven actors and actresses with various acting experience behind them.

C. Tutle s hila rious sory, “Henry Goes Arizona,” :oming to the Royal theatre today with Frank Morgan and Virginia Weidler at the head of a big Western ?ast. The story deals with Morgan, in the title role, a nervous vaude ville comedian who suddenly finds himself the heir to his brother’s ranch near Tonto City, Arizona. Gun fire terrifies him. A plotting fore man agitates the other ranchers to lynch him in order to get possession of the ranch. His brother had been murdered, and a likable chap is in jail charged with the crime. He finds a child, his niece, on the ranch and grows to love the youngster. Knowing he cannot meet Western attacks with Western attacks, ht resorts to guile and turns all his vaudeville tricks to account in out witting his enemies, exposing the real murderer, unmasking the town bank er as a crook, and finally becoming the hero of the range and mayor of Tonto City. Edwin L. Marin directed the blend of thrills, laughs and poig nant human drama. “THE THUNDERING WEST” OFFERED AT THE BIJOU Charles Starrett, hard-riding out door action star, plays a different sort of role in the best sort of way in Columbia's exciting new drama, “The Thundering West,” which shows today at the Bijou theatre. As the young bandit who, unhappy in his choice of fates, turns to the right side of the law at the earliest opportunity. Starrett is seen in a film that has dramatic action and a thrill-filled narrative. Exciting, dramatic and suspense ful situations, set against a back ground of tuneful music and tender romance, comprise “The Thundering West.” The bandit’s decision to re form, his appointment to the post of sheriff by a townspeople unaware of his identity but grateful for his prevention of a hold-up he himself had planned to commit, and the fi nal redemption of the man are all thrillingly told. The final scenes, in which Starrett, as the sheriff, rounds up and “cleans out” the out law gang to which he had once be longed, are alone worth the price of admission to the Bijou theatre. Iris Meredith, leading lady in sev eral former successful Starrett films, again provides the right touch of ro mance and beauty. There are also several new west ern songs which provide the tuneful background for the story. These songs, written by Bob Nolan, and played and sung by the Sons of the Pioneers, add much to the cur rent attraction. The final chapter of “Daredevils of The Red Circle,” and the first chapter of "The Green Hornet,” the action packed chapter play, are also on the program. “DAT-TIME WIFE” MARKS CAROLINA THEATRE BILL What have secretaries got that w-ives haven’t?
