Head Start Of Beauty Didn’t
Carry Sue Far Through Life
by ruth miulett
Any eighteen-year-old girl would
rather have been Sue than Mary.
At eighteen Sue was pretty
almost beautiful. Sue had plenty
af dates. And because Sue went
jver big with boys, all the girls
iad a healthy respect for her.
Ma was just average looking,
sometimes when there was a par
ty, Mary had to stay home be
muse no boy asked her to go with
aim. The girls liked Mary a i 1
right, but they didn’t imitate her
lair-dos or copy her gestures. Sue
set all the styles.
Today any woman would rather
ae 28-ye. r-rld Mary than 28-year
pld Sue.
In the last ten years Mary has
made the most of all her assets,
while Sue had drifted along, smug
in the knowledge that she was
jn e the most popular and best
looking gir’ in town.
Sue married just before she was
nineteen—a good-looking young
man that all the girls were crazy
about. But his good looks and his
personality haven’t taken him very
far in business. He is anything
put a s', cess, and Sue is nothing
out his wife. She doesn’t know any
more than she did at eighteen;
she hasn” matured. And, of
c urse, she isn’t as pretty as she
was then.
Mary went on to college, where
she took part in activities, made
good enough grades, and gained
a lot of self-confidence. She work
ad for three years and in that
time was promoted twice.
Then at twenty-five she mar
ried an up-and-coming young
business man she met through
business, quit her job, and set
tled down to make a success of
being a wife.
She is sitting pretty today—from
almost any woman’s point of view.
She has a number of real friends,
for, not being beautiful, she al
ways put herself out to be good
company. She has acquired excel
lent taste, which has turned her
into a good-looking, smartly-dress
ed young women, and her home
into a pleasant, attractive place.
She reads a great deal, and
right now she is taking piano
lessons, for the sole purpose of
learning how to play well enough
to entertain herself.
Her husband spends every min
ute he can with her, and she gets
on so well with his business friends
and their wives that she is going
to be a real help to him.
Sue had a head-start on Mary
ten years ago, but Sue forgot that
to win a race a head-start isn’t
enough. Yo uhave to keep mov
ing. 4
Movie Revues
“NEW MOON” FEATURED
ON THE CAROLINA BILL
In a picture which is said to
surpass even their greatest tri
umphs on the screen, Jeanette
MacDonald and Nelson Eddy are
teamed again, this time in the
musical romance, “New Moon,” a
story set against the colorful back
ground of early New Orle«ns.
The musical production, which
opens today at the Carolina thea
ter is their first together since
“Sweethearts,” which was immed
iately followed by each making a
concert tour across the country.
“New Moon,” in addition to its
dramatic and exciting romance of
a lady of French royalty and a
fugitive from political justice, off
ers such all-time musical favorites
as “Lover Come Back to Me,”
“One Kiss,” “Wanting You,”
"Softly As in a Morning Sunrise,”
“Rondolet,” “Largo,” “Mar
ianne,” “Paree,” “Shoe Shine
Song” and the stirring “Stout
Hearted Men.”
The supporting cast includes
Mary Boland, who recently scored
a hit as the Countess de Lage in
“The Women,” George Zucco, H.
B.' Warner, Grant Mitchell and
more than fifty speaking roles. The
Sigmund Romberg operetta was
both produced and directed by Ro
bert Z. Leonard, whose previous
MacDonald - Eddy hits include
“May time” and “The Girl of the
Golden West.”
The colorful adventure of the
musical romance takes place
against such varied settings as old
New Orleans, the high seas, and
a tropical island.
The short program includes the
latest issue of “Information
Please” and News. 4
“MIDNIGHT LIMITED” IS
FEATURED AT THE BIJOU
A strange cargo of desperate
men and women hurtle onward
through the night on the crack
train “Midnight Limited,” unmind
ful that they have a date with
death. This is the theme of Mono
gram’s thrilling “Midnight Limit
ed,” which opens today at the
Bijou theatre.
A phantom robber gets a for
tune in jewels and some valuable
papers tile first time the train is
attacked, and Val Lennon, ace
railroad detective, and his pretty
assistant, Joan Marshall, are on
his trail. ’rhree times after that
the Phantom strikes, until he has
added murder to his list of crimes.
Then Val, in order to prove his
amazing theory as to how the
crimes were committed, plants
himself as a victim, and he and
Joan board the death train to wait
for the attack they know will
come.
Suspense and eerie thrills char
acterize “Midnight Limited,”
which is fast action from the mo
ment the first weird whistle
shrieks through the night to the
final gunshot which seals the
Phantom’s doom.
John King, whose last screen
appearance was as the cowboy
hero of “The Gentleman from
Arizona,” handles this dramatic
role with an ease that marks him
as a first rate actor as well as an
attractive screen personality. King
also has an opportunity to display
his rich baritone voice, which first
won him screen opportunities, in
the one song in the picture, “Quiet
Hands.”
Monogram’s Marjorie Reynolds
is refreshing as King’s invaluable
assistant.- Excellent work is also
done by Monte Collins as the sinis
ter Abel Krantz, and others out
standing in thfe cast include Pat
Flaherty, the conductor on the
death train; Buck Woods, its
frightened negro porter; and
George Cleveland as suspect num
ber one.
The program also includes the
current chapter of “Drums of Fu
amanchu”, and a Charley Chase
comedy, “South of the Boudoir”. 4

about hygiene in these dark arcs that
any doctor can give you;
It’s uncleanly! That repellant under

Because the dark arcs are closed to

decays before it evaporates.
Perspiration, carrying cist off body
wastes, pours out on the skin, ming

organisms. Decay begins. Acids form.
Fungus may grow and bacteria mul

"'It’s shocking,” say lovely women

They prevent it, by using Arrid to
