"It was a happy lime, Margie,”
said Paula, to get away iroui the
vitiated atmosphere of The One He
Chose into the r«al. clean realm ot
thought in which Alma and Tom
lived. Both these young people
were rather sophisticated, using the
word In the sense of one who knows,
but the sights and sordidm s* that
their profession brought to their

wholesome way they looked upon
life.
Margie. 1 have heard much about
.eentainlnating the voting thru the
to-called realistic writings and plays
and I ha\e come to the conclusion
that no young person was ever
made any the worse by seeing an h
pictures of life and aarrlahips a-*

The musical comedy with Its

this, and the young man or woman
who frequents such shows cannot
