AROUND AND ABOUT
(By C. G. FLINT)
A MODERN ALGER STORY
i They say the chances of get
ting in the movies out in Holly
wood are a thousand-to-one and
that out of the hundreds that
cool their heels in the outer of
fices, only a handful see the
j “boss.” . . . This is the success
story of a young man who want
ed to advance himself; who was
not content to sit in the outer of
fice or linger in the corridor.
Serving in the modest capacity
of a private secretary, at a salary
of SIO,OOO, a year was not enough
for our subject. So he studied
and prepared himself at White
House academy hoping, some
day, his chance would come.
1 ■'
There are Good Angels hover
ing about for those who burn the j
midnight oil in the struggle up
ward. A big movie executive,
unbenownst to our subject, had
his eye on him. And one day:
when things looked their black- j
est the chance of a lifetime to go
in the movies came. And, quite
naturally, the erstwhile secretary
became top vice-president of the
great Goldwyn Corporation.
i
Young men. Do not feel dis
couraged in your progress on the
path of advancement seems snale
like. But do not linger in a job
you feel is too small for you. Go
out after success and, someday,
you will find success looking you
up,—as it has vice-president Jim
mie Roosevelt.
