Miss Billie Burke is not the usual woman of the stage. She is
a sweet girl, of great charm, of winsome loveliness and of engaging
personality. And she also is that much greater thing a womanly
On the stage, she is the daintiest, the prettiest, the best known
and the most highly paid actress of the day. And her writing is just
as original as her personality, which has made everyone who had
come to know her fall head over heels in love with her.
So The Day Book dug down into its cash box and got Miss
Burke's articles exclusively for you; No other Chicago" newspaper
can get a line from her pen.4
Tomorrow we shall tell you something about Billie Burke her
self, of how she came to go on the stage, and how she became the
most famous American actress tf the day.

Miss Burke. It will be "Billie Burke on Love," .and we'll :tell you
right now that what Billie Burke has to say on love is so sweet and
so womanly that it brought the fears to the eyes of a lot of cynical,
world-hardened, unbelieving editors.
