Is to appear-with the new grand opera
company of which Sigl Florenclo
Constantino, world-famous tenor, is
to be manager.
Remembering that success is not
worth having unless the price is paid
with perseverence-and long hours of
practice, these twenty Los Anegeles
girls are planning to dance their way
to fame.
The premier danseuse of the gal
axy, Miss Maison, is assisting Sig.
Mario Marti in training the others.
There was a. time when it was be
lieved that a ballet, to be young and
smart and clever, must come from
good old eastern Broadway. But
now, well, now, organizing a ballet
from local talent is not trick at all in
the western center of theatrical ac
tivity. o o
She's a wee little tyke of just 3
years, plump, blue-eyed, with sun
shine hair a tiny little bit of love
that some one ought to just cuddle
and adore but she's a bit of love
that nobody wants right now a tiny
tot that "hasn't really ever known a
mother or father," to use the words
of the man who wants to find a
"really home" for the little one.
He wrote to The Day Book offer
ing the tiny tot to someone for adop
tion and to a reporter he told thjs
tragic story.
"I married her mother to give the
baby a name before it came into the
world, but after it was born her
mother wanted high life and I put up
with her as long as I could and then
I got a divorce from her and the court
gave me the custody of the baby and
the right to sign adoption papers.
"I couldn't take care of her myself,
so I boarded her out and paid $3 a
week for her. Now I am married a
second time, but both my wife and I
work and we couldn't take care of
the baby, and I feel that she ought
to have a real home before she's old
enough to understand that she hasn't
really ever known a mother "qr fa
ther. I could put "her in an institu
tion, but I won't do that if I have to
keep on paying her board always,
and I won't give her to anyone that
cannot show they'll be go.od to her,
because she's got good healthy par
entage and she's a good little girl.
"Anybody that wants her really
can take her to the doctor and have
her health examined and they can
keep her in their home for six months
before they legally adopt her, and if
they find they do not love her enough
to want her I will take her back, and
if they adopt her and don't want her I
will take her back before I'll have
her put in a home.
"I don't want my name or address
given, so if The Day Book will let
the applications come to them and
then turn them over to me I will then
take care of the matter."
She's a tiny little sunshine-haired
baby and somebody's going to want
her awfully bad,

Cop-t-Don't tell me. I saw you
frisking for coin in the cafe mana
ger's office!
Thief Not me, officer. I wouldn't
go there I was in the head waiter's
room. ,

Perfectly awful for Germany to
borrow $10,000,000 from banks of
