PRINCE’S MARRIAGE
: PUNS POSTPONED
Louis of Bourbon Thinks
American’s Settlement
Is Too Small.
By the Associated Press.
PARIS, June 13.—Prince Louis of
Bourtwn, wandering cousin of King Al
fonso of Spain, has changed his mind
about marrying Mrs. Mabclle Gilman
Corey, who had agreed to provide him
with a home and SI,COO a month for
pocket money.
Prince Louis decided-he would like to j
have a better allowance. He wrote to a
friend in Paris, who received the letter
yesterday.
Mrs. Corey has not heard from him
In nearly two weeks, since the time orig
inally set for the wedding, but she said
yesterday afternoon that the engage
ment had not been broken, though the
wedding had been postponed until Au
tumn.
She blamed the postponement on the
weather, saying it was too hot in the
Summer at San Remo, Italy, where
Prince Louis is now staying, for the
Infanta Eulalie, mother of the prince,
to attend the ceremony. The Infanta
Eulalie is an aunt of King Alfonso and
looks far younger than her 64 years.
The Infanta Eulalie told the Asso
ciated Press that the wedding had been
'•indefinitely postponed” and indicated
her doubts that it would ever take
place. She said nothing about the
weather, except that she had returned
to Paris recently from Spain because
it had become too warm down there.
Mrs. Corey has known the erratic
prince 20 years. One of the prince’s
relatives said she declared she wished
to marry the prince "in order to save
him.”
"But now it seems that Louis doesn’t
care for redemption,” this relative re
marked, adding that the prince had
written that he was “through with this
affair.”
KNOCKED DOWN BY TRUCK
Hurrying between parked automobiles
near the Fourteenth street entrance to
the Willard Hotel. Pennsylvania avenue
and Fourteenth street, in an effort to
board a southbound street car, about

is employed, John Roberts, 53 years old,
of 1343 Oak street, was struck by a mo

precinct took the injured man, who was
in a dazed condition, to Emergency
Hospital, where he was treated by Dr.
I. Rutkoski for concussion of the brain

MOVIES AND MOVIE PEOPLE
BY MOLLIE MERRICK.
HOLLYWOOD! Calif., June 13.—T0 sure the success of her Chinese role in
you it’s an evening s entertainment —
I'm talking of the movies.
To the people who make them It’s
often a very serious thing. To those
who publicize them it’s sheer tragedy.
And if we are to credit the tale now
current in Hollywood among our very
best exaggerating circles, a girl will go
to no end of trouble to put a role over
in the de luxe manner.
Movleland credits Estelle Taylor with

a Lon Chaney picture, just completed.
Estelle, it seemed, didn’t want the taped
eyes affected by other Hollywooden
ladles When an Oriental ”016 Is essayed.
She wanted the real thing.
So she hied her to the surgeon who
put a nose on Jack Dempsey and had a
tuck taken in either side of her head —
a nice bias tuck which held her eyes
aslant for the duration of the picture.
And after? Estelle just hied her back
again and had herself untucked. At
least that is the tale they’re telling in a
village noted for its verfccity.
Village speakeasies are becoming a
thing of the past. You have to shout
loudly to get your licker now. The
local polizei just up and at ’em with a
vengeance. As a result one little white
i washed bit of Spanish architecture near
l. Lasky’s studio has a large “For Rent”
1 sign on it.
i Titles to comics will have less aban
. don perhaps because of this. For some
of the best side-splitters were scribbled
j on the cuff during an informal and
i slightly vinous luncheon at this iolly
- little blind pig.
s One title writer returned to his
cubicle at 3 of the afternoon to find his
i supervisor waiting for him. Even a
t columnist would have had wit enough
i to that the supervisor was a bit
seedy in temper.
i “Are you getting SBOO a week to
t bum I ?*’ the supervisor asked, n trace of
| bitterness behind his carefully acquired
. British accent. ,
r “Certainly not!” said the titler with
’ a grandiloquent manner. “Never worked
so hard nzailife!”
“And the results?” It was obvious
‘ the supervisor was fast losing both
I accent and temper.
I “Out there." And the titler sagged
r into his wicker lounging chair and pro
ceeded to light a cigarette,
s The supervisor flung open the door
> of the stenographer's room to find that
i lady bent over a much-scribbled table
l cloth from the nearby bootleggery.
Many a Hollywood title comes out In
the wash. ,
“Anna Christie,” with Greta Garbo
playing the leading role in talk, should
be interesting. This is an intelligent
compromise on the perplexing Garbo
situation. The star is working on her
English overtime. Had Garbo mingled
more with local society she would be
farther ahead by this time. But she
has been one of the village hermits
since the day of her arrival from
Sweden.
When talk arrived one of the biggest
box office bets in Cinemaland was
threatened with extinction. This role
should meet the needs of Garbo per- I
fectly and at the same time give the
public Eugene O’Neill at his best. <
Every one Is looking for A1 Jolson,
who slipped away from the main street
haunts hera a few days ago and sur
rounded his whereabouts with complete
mystery. Some say he's visiting Ruby
Keeler In New York; others that he's
having some new songs published. One
old meanle even suggested a little light
face lifting.
Or possibly all three. A1 Is versatile.
