Beauty Secrets Told by a jOEAVTY conies from within as well as from the outside, according to Betty Compson, the Paramount pic ture star. There was never a truer saying, she says, than "Pretty is as pretty does." "If you have love and charity in your soul you cannot help but be beautiful, no matter what your fea tures are," Miss Compson explains, "if you see beauty all around you it will be.reflected in your face. "Of course, one must take a certain amount ot" care of the skin and the physical well-being of the body. The better the physical structure and ap pearance the more beautiful one can appear when radiating sincerity and good fellowship. "Once the heart and mind is at tuned. the modern girl should then turn to the many marvelous aids to beauty, which she can find on all sides. "[ am a firm believer in make-up, provided it is artistically applied. The cosmetics that are manufactured now-a-days are so wonderful that any girl can enhance her natural beauty by properly applying them. A girl with very blonde eyebrows is certainly justified in touching them enough to make them noticeable. "lii buying rouge one should know what:Staring to get. for there are variations for all kinds of complex ions. The girl who is going to use rouge should be sure she is getting rhe right kind for her complexion, and when she gets it she should be very, careful in applying it to her skin. There is nothing quite so ter- I rible as the way some girls rouge their cheeks. This is simply a mat ter of artistic taste. Every girl should study her particular style of beauty and do everything possible to enhance it. "If a girl has pretty ankles she should wear shorter skirts than the girl who, unfortunately, has thick ankles. Shortsleeved dresses are for ankles. Short-sleeved dresses are for girl with ugly arms, but this girl, by wearing long sleeves may cover up the very part of her body that does not attract. In the long-sleeved dress she would be considered a beauty, while in the gown without sleeves! she would be classed as ugly. The asme thing applies to the low-neck gown. Only the girl with a beautiful neck and well rounded shoulders should wear such gowns. "Clothes are made for all kinds of beauty and the girl who is not dis criminating in the matter of dress these days is not smart. By the mere touch of color here and an odd ef fect there, the modern girl may be plain or attractive as she will. i "At school or in business girls | should be plainly dressed. There is no need for them to attract when at work . It is only in society and in the hours of pleasure that girls should | make themselves as beautiful as pos- I sible. Then, perhaps, the questioh of j beauty and attractiveness is the dif ference between a good time and ai dull one. "My advice to the girl who would be considered beautiful would be to I dress attractively, use make-up judi- J ciously, keep the mind young, think of the beautiful things, and let the light shine from within." | New French Masterpiece. "QATHE has announced the acquis! * tion of h noted European motion picture production. "The Isle of Zor da," from the Jules Verne romance "Mathias Sandorf," a Louis Nalpas production which a first run at fifty four Paris theaters, with second, third and fourth runs crowding more than double that number of houses, and which is now in the third month of a highly profitable engagement at Cirque .D'Hiv/er. Mr. Nalpas arrived from Paris and signed contracts with Paul Brunet conveying to Pathe Exchange. Inc., distributing rights of "The Isle of Zorda" in this country. Prints of the picture were submitted to Pathe last fall. Readers of the novel. "Mathias San dorf," with its impressively heroic central figures and its wealth of highly dramatic incidents in romantic old world schemes with physical con fliots intensified by motives rising out of every human passion, will expect the Nalpas picturization to follow very closely the course of the Verne narrative?which is the custom of French picture producers in dealing with the great popular masterpieces of fiction. Louis Nalpas has specialized in this class of production since his entrance into the cinema field in 1912.

BY BLEA.VORE DE WITT EBY. WITH the "Follis" in town last week gorgeous costumes, of course, took precedence over modern frocks, but even In the bi zarre creations there were interesting suggestions for milady's wardrobe. For instance, Mary Eaton's "rose bud" costume of fragile silver fabric woul$ be charming as an evening frock if there were a slightly more substantial foundation under its swaying petals. Then in the scene at Versailles during the reign of Louis XVI those interested in fashion de sign were afforded ample opportunity to trace the origin of the modern crin oline, and perhaps they breathed a sigh of relief that couturiers of to day have simply given us a few hints of the old bouffant models, rather than exact copies of them. One 'grand? dame" in the tableau brought in wo doll-like little danc ers under the huge expanse of her hoopskirt. and, judging from appear ances, she might have lodged a small army there. Dainty Mary Eaton took the part of the little eight-year-old French prince in this scene, and wore an ex quisite suit of pale blue and pink satin, and a white wig with the curls gathered together at the back with a double-faced pink and blue bow. Later, as Solly, she appeared in the gown which is sketched. The medium was silver cloth, heavily brocaded and ornamented with sequins, while the trimming consisted of long bands of fluffy swansdown caught together to j make deep borders for the sklrP and I sleeves. The bodice was cut Jn j basque fashion, with a square collar Jess neck and long flaring' sleeves of i white georgette set in. The skirt was i quite long and widened as it fell, and j the bands of trimming which circled it appeared to hold the folds out and j to give them a hint of boulTancy. j Miss Eaton's headdress of dazzling ? opalescent sequins was held to the coiffure by a tight-fitting cap of pearls similar to those associated with the character of Juliet. Miss Fania Marinoff, who played one of the leading roles in "The Char latan," the fascinating mystery play at the Garrick last week, displayed an original evening creation. Its soft chiffon folds, combining unusual col ors, were as distinctive and. strangely appealing as her dark Latin beauty, while her odd coiffure and large jew eled ornaments accented the effect of both. The bodice of the gown was of peacock blue chiffon draped over sil ver cloth and outlined with rich ma genta chiffon. The shoulder straps were also of magenta, and a strand of blue-green beads was caught to them at each side, so that it gave the effect of a double bodice support. Ma genta medallions decorated the bodice front, and the long draped skirt was also in that color tone, but an open ing at the front gave a glimpse of a dull purplish lining. Medallions tinged with gold appeared here and there among the skirt folds, resem bling the eyes on a peacock's tail feathers, enlarged to huge propor tions. A long chiffon scarf shimmer ing from green to blue, as different lights struck it, circled on? arm and fell to the floor like a misplaced train, and a single large medallion was traced at its end. The girdle was of silver ribbon, and a streamer from it; fell the length of the gown at the i front and extended a bit longer to sweep the floor, corresponding with the chiffon scarf at the side. Miss Blossom Seeley, appearing at Keith's in "Miss Syncopation," wore a bewildering array of costumes and gowns, but perhaps the most effective was the one pictured, in which she made her initial entrance. The gown sparkled with a bodice of sequins, slightly veiled at one side by a shoul der strap of henna tulle, which ex tended to the waist, knotted in a sauoy bow and then fell almost to the skirt hem. Light Nile green satin was used for part of the skirt, but its folds were lifted at one side to re veal an underskirt of silver lace ruf fling, while at the opposite side the satin drapery almost touched the an kles. Miss Seeley's wrap was even more distinctive than the gown, for it was made of sheer burnt-orange georgette, bordered with luxurious white fox fur. The transparent folds were caught to a yoke at the back, and the many gathers made possible by the light material gave unusually graceful lines to the wrap. Fur*1 was used around the neck and wide dol man-like sleeves, and again around j the lower edge of the georgette, j where it formed a long, curving train, j Miss Seeley's brown, fluffy bobbed-, hair was piled up high, and surmount ed by a wreath of henna berries, with i a large cluster of them at one side. I Millionaires for a Day. MAN, middle-aged, prosperous in appearance, stepped leisurely across a broad portico and down a flight of steps. En route he turned toward i the marvelous mansion, done in best southern -style, gave a final order to a servant, and then proceeded to a gor geous motor car which started with a bound to carry him to .a luxuriously appointed office. The motor car sped but a few feet, however, wheir' a voice called "Cut." Cameras stopped grinding, "grips" laid down the reflectors... with whfch they were throwing light on the face of the player, for such was the "millionaire," and the scene before the magnificent mansion resolved itself into a conference with the director as to further action of the photoplay of which this was a part. The "millionaire" of a moment be fore rested himself on a camp chair with entire unconcern. For forty-five seconds he had owned a magnificent estate stretching over fifteen acres and valued in excess of $600,000. But it was an every-day matter with him. Perhaps in the next picture he would have a place worth a million. Magnificent estates were Just part of his daily bread and butter. In Pasadena, for instance, there's a half-million-dollar mansion, which for architecture and surroundings might easily have been In Long Island. For a day Agnes Ayres, the screen star, was lady of all she surveyed on this marvel ous place, built with the amassed wind falls of a western cattle king, whose ideas on architecture, however, were strictly eastern and carried out the idea of a New York locale required by "The Ordeal," a new Paramount picture. Whenever pictures like "The Dictator," In which Wallace Reid is starred, re quires a Cuban, Mexican or South American background, a fifty-acre es tate and a house of perfect Spanish architecture with plaster walls and ro mantic barred balconies, in Santa Bar bara, is used. For days at a time noted screen actors have been the owners of this magnificent home. For a week recently Dorothy Dal ton was mi art re SB of a gorgeous Eng lish estate. Lemister Castle was the name of the place In "The Woman Who Walked Alone," a new George Melford pioture. but In reality It was a famous estate near Burlinganie. Calif., built by the extremely wealthy owner after the type of some of the best of the great old English country homes. In fact. It Is often said that Los Angeles trains and holds control of the motion picture production field, not only because of Its climate, but by reason of the fact that so many millionaires choose it as the place of their retirement and build elaborate semi-country estates. The Incident related at the begin ning- of this story referred to a banker's home in Beverly Hills. William P. Carlton owned It for a day in "Our Leading Citizen," a new Thomas Meighan picture. This par ticular home Is mentioned because, while many stars have "owned" it In piotures. It is set down anions a group of places which the playera actually and personally own. for Beverly Hills Is not only an exclu sive district for non-professional millionaires, but It also houses the real homes of many of the film higher-ups. '"Pickfair," home of Douglas and Mary Pickford Fairbanks, f6r in stance. Is a big rambling place In the American style. Will Rogers has an Imposing place of plaster, with splendid terraced lawns, while Charles Chaplin, Wallace Reid, Pauline Fred erick and William S. Hart show a similarity of taste in that their places are all of the modified Spanish. And the glory of all this owning mansions for a day is that the own ership provides funds for a very worthy oharlty. In Los Angeles there Is an organization called the As sistance League. To this league the millionaire owners of wonderful homes give permission for their use In motion pictures!. The film com panies pay the league, and the pro ceeds go to maintain a number of very worthy charities in the city of Los Angeles. So when In a picture you see a star owning a million-dol lar estate, enjoy the scene, not only for its direct beauty, but also be cause of the thought that maybe some wistful little orphan child has been made happy because that picture has been taken. It's an Interesting business, this nwnillg a million-dollar estate for a day. "N. V. A." Benefit Mat. Next Friday. All Seats, $1 Each.

Chinese Screen Fantasy AN original photoplay by Gouver neur Morris, a Chinese fantasy, "Whims of the Gods," is now nearing completion at the Goldwyn studios. The picture is declared to be total ly different from anything: ever at tempted before on the screen. The story is that told to his young: son by a Chinese father, vcho has ?come to America to find the maiden he loved in the old world- The pictured story, however, is not as the father ! remembers it, but as the son imagines j it from his father's narrative. ! "Whims of the Gods" is sheer imag ination. touched with a spirit of fan tasy. The very names of the char acters are indicative of the fanciful nature of the photoplay. What Ho is (the father, Ting-a-Ling the mother j and then there are Go Hang, Mr. iWing. Mrs. Wing and others. The sets devised for "Whims of the Gods," as fantastic as the tale itself, were designed by Cedric Gibbons, Goldwyn's art director, and executed under his personal direction. The role of What Ho, the cook, is played by Jack Abbe, the young Jap anese actor, who made a hit in Mr. Morris* other Chinese picture. "A Tale of Two Worlds." Winter Blossom, a young Chinese actress, is Ting-a L-ing. Fame and the Unknown "THE rule that phenomenal success In literary work cannot be achieved by a writer previously un known to fame, is reversed In the case of J. P. Marquand, the twenty eight-year-old author of the "The Right That Failed," which not only was Mr. Marquaod's first attempt at story writing but which was ac cepted by one of the leading maga zines, despite the author's lack of reputation. The story and its author arouse aditional Interest by reason of the fact that as soon as the story ap peared In the Saturday Evening Post the Metro picture corporation made a bid for the screen rights and bought them. The picture, following the natural course of events, has reached Washington. Marquand, * It Is claimed, started writing fiction last July. At that time he had 1600. saved from his earnings as an advertising writer. With this fund, he retired to New buryport, Mass., to begin work. He had been one of the editors of the Harvard Lampoon while a student at Harvard and then had started work on the magazine page of the Boston Evening Transcript. Occasionally, he was allowed to re view a play for the scholarly critic of the Transcript, Mr. Parker, and once he had an editorial printed. Then followed war service and his determination to make fiction a career. As a result of his first suc cess, it is said, he has already sold two serials, "The Unspeakable Gen tleman" and "Only a Few Of Us Left" PANcnrs. Leroy H. Thayer !

There :*.rf and have been many ex cellent schools where negro students could learn music and acquire pro ficiency in the artistic; traditions of the white race. The Washington Conservatory of Music and School of Expression was founded eighteen years ago with the idea of encourag ing and developing the negro's own racial self-expression, whiie aiming to equip students with complete technical knowledge of music, for it was realized that unless encourage ment were given to racial expression its individuality in many cases would be smothered and lost. The inspiration which has led to the work of founding a national negro music center came to the chair man. Mrs Harriet Gibbs Marshall, while teaching music in an industrial school in the woods of Kentucky some years ago. Travel in the south land in the interest of this school, hearing the negro music and observ ing wonderful talent, unknown and neglected, and realizing the racial and national asset in the beautiful folk songs, she has steadily and pa tiently waited for the proper time to develop this idea. While director of music of the col ored schools of Washington Mrs. Marshall called together a small group of capable musicians, gradu ates of America's leading conserva tories. The need of a school was dis cussed, organization formed and tem porary quarters secured.

Discovers Cold Light NEW "cold" light which promises. it Is claimed, to be of great com mercial value in the projection of -motion pictures, in therapeutics and in searchlights, has been invented, or discovered, whichever one prefers to call it, by M. J. Ritterrath, a JLos An geles experimenter, after a series of experiments extending over a period "?f four years. Much of his experimenting was done at the Culver City studios of <Io!dwyn Pictures Corporation. Lewis M. Physioc. h'-ad of the GoJdwyn labora tory. has been associated with Mr. Hit terra th in his researches. Asked to explain his cold light, Rit terrath said that it was light free from all rays save the white. The excitable infra red ray. the somnoles Cent violet ray and all the others are eliminated by mechanism which he has perfected, and which leaves the light so free from heat that highly explosive photographic film ran he subjecetd to it for hourvS without burning. The light is obtained by fastening a ray cooler an ordinary projection machine. Water is poured through the filter in a continuous stream. Th** heal which is generated in the crater of the machine has a temperature f>f about 6,250 degree*. At the gate, or the pla? p in the ma chine where the film is run, the tem perature is only 70 degrees. l.'nder the ordinary light the temperature a: the gate would be 1.200 degrees, sufti cient to burn the film in a fractuu of a second if the machine wort stopped. A demonstration of his cold ray w recently given at the Golriwyn -:u'i:<? by Mr. Ritterrath for William Des? er. president of the Bosch & L.aui ; ? Company of Rochester. X Y.. ai.'i other men interested in the possibili ties of the new invention. Bill Hart Still in. Ring. \yiLLJAM S. HART has not retired; ' from the screen. He sets all rumors to that effect at rest with the following statement: "I intend to resume work in the summer in order to have a picture ready for fall release. I. therefore, will not he absent from th*1 screen at all, for "Travelin' On." my Para mount picture recently released, will take me well into the fall." Hart suspended production work at his studio for an indefinite period several months ago. it is said, for the reason that he was far ahead of his release schedule. Since then Paramount has released three of his j productions, the last of them. Trav J elin' On," having been sent on its way through the liiv; run thfat<:s in March. "The motion pirture pjidic in; <!< me.'* continued the famous western star. "J am mighty grateful, and J intend 11? keep nuhi on working until they say 'Knough!' Th? rer?ption "f my recent picture. 'Travelin* On.' shows me they have not said the word yet.

Since the publication of the tirement rumors, it is said, the Para mount offices have received hundr*-s of inquiries from exhibitors and "Bi!t Hart fans. Has "Chuletas." -CnuLET^.? ! Yep. Rudolph Valentino's grot j 'em. They're not a n*w variety of i smallpox or anything contagious, however, just very fancy sideburns that are a feature of the star's get up as the bull-tight hero of "Blood and Sand," the Vicente Blasco Ibanez story now being made as a Para- ! mount picture. They're super-sideburns, one might say, -swooping almost half an inch below the bottom of the car. They are a sign distinguishing the cham pion matador from the less notable of the bull-fighting clan. For where a banderilla or a picador is allowed sideburns that slip gingerly half way down to the ear?it is the mata dor alone who may indulge in the luxury of a hirsute adornment cov ering a good portion of each side of the face. * While they are a. valuable and fin ishing touch to his make-up as Gal larda. Valentino is not in favor of "chuletas" as a regular thing. His favorite "safety" is all set to do tell ing damage when the end of the pic ture allows a return to the normalcy of a clean shave. The Flapper and the Dragon tl/HO likes the flapper? There are some who say she's getting a little too modern and so phisticated. But there is a land, it is said, where the flapper reigns supreme, where there isn't a real one in existence, and yet, on the screen, she's as pop ular as moonshine in Tennessee. It's Japan. Gladys Walton entertained Ichibei Itow at Universal City. The little flapper star's guest is financially in terested in the chief publications of the land across the water, and found at Universal City material for count less stories and pictorial matter. He was particularly interested in the flapper romances filmed at Uni versal City. He made the statement that the two kinds of pictures best liked in Japan were the deeply emo tional. thrilling ones of Priscllla Dean's type, and the light frothy comedy dramas of the Walton variety. In fact, it seemed from his explana tion that the well known dragon is giving place to the flapper in the re gard of the people. A Picture Highly Praised. DEV. LINCOLN H. CASWELL pas tor of the Crawford Memorial Church, New York city, it is reported, was so inspired after he saw "TTie Loves of Pharaoh," Ernest Lubitsch'5 Paramount picture, that he wrote the I following: "To be carried back five thousand years is a sensation which archeol ogists have attempted to give us ever since they began to unearth and | bring to light that vast civilization of Egyptian antiquity. "I saw thjs Egypt the other day? Egypt of the * ancient Pharaohs? Egypt in Sail that highly developed civilization spoken of in her exca vated monuments and inscriptions. What the archeologist has failed to do has at last been accomplished. What the spade has refused to tell us I have seen with my own eyes fully restored by the motion pictures 111 ?The Loves of Pharaoh.'

Schenck has just produced for First National release Norma Talmadge, the star, wears some exquisite bou doir neglige. In one boudoir scene she appears in a purple chiffon velvet jjeglige of formal style, which has graceful chiffon sleeves of t'je same rich hue. The second neglige is of gray satin, trimmed with squirrel bandings, which has a modern ring to it to read about., but when seen it has a distinct flavor of the inoyen age in its modilied lines. The third lacks the formality what it gains in sheer loveliness. It h?is pink silk as background for hand made flowers and puffs, with an over dress of pink figured chiffoh and silver medallions. One of the chief distinctions of this neglige is its extreme train, always beautiful, but seldom as appropriately worn as in th<* scenes of "The Duchess of L?a.n geais."
