DENIES SHE'S CONTEMPLATING
Mrs. Walter C. Cunningham of
Denver, formerly Marjorie Hamilton,
the famous Chicago "calendar
beauty," today denounced as "just a
big lie" the story printed in morning
papers that she is contemplating suit
for divorce against her husband.
Worry over reports in the news
papers has caused Mrs. Cunningham
to lose nearly as much flesh as she
removed via the famous anti-fat cure,
whose advertisement resulted in her
trial in Denver, with her husband, on
charges of using the mails to defraud.
Mrs. Cunningham is in Chicago at
the bedside of her friend, Mrs. James
R. Ward, Jr., who is seriously ill.
"Some ofthese yellow papers have
abused me to the point of prosecu

the truth so much that they look
foolish. I am ngt thinking of divorce.
I am going right back to Denver just
as soon as Mrs. Ward gets better."

the tango in London society.
Explaining that the tango is so
popular because "tango" in Latin
means "I touch," the writer says:
"Where the shepherd leads, the
sheep wjll follow, and the American
lady in London who is the chief in
stigator of these revels is a shepherd
ess of no mean ability.
"If a baboon could be trained to
play ragtime, he would be the rage
of London and people would be asked
out to meet and sit at table with him.
This is not an exaggeration, but a
