Famed in the atrical circles as the original Ha- waian Nude Truth girl, her special en gagement by the Blue Bird is an ex treme stroke of good fortune for the dancers of Phoenix, for it offers them the opportunity to witness a dancing specialty that will prove the most pre tentious attraction a local dancing! em porium has ever featured. Laoria Graham, born in Honolulu, reared and educated there, Is a girl of striking beauty, who has been a dancer since childhood. Specializing in danc ing of tho aesthetic type, she has like wise been accredited by the best au thorities of being the most accom plished exponent of native Hawaiian and Oriental dancing the vaudeville circuits have ever known. During her engagement at the Blue Bird she will each evening offer several numbers, each one in costume, and each one an alluring personification of the sym phony of the dance beautiful. Her . special wardrobe is being shipped from the Pantages theater by express, she coming direct to the city from her engagement at that famous temple of vaudeville in the coast city. The announcement is made that de spite the importance of this engage ment the Blue Bird will not advance the admission price. Her numbers will occur at several times during the even ing, and doubtless the Blue Bird will be packed by the lovers of the light fantastic during this engagement of an act that has never failed to score the biggest hit on any vaudeville bill on which it has appeared. Direct From The Pantages Theater in Los Angeles LAONA GRAHAM Hawaiian NUDE TRUTH GIRL In Native Hawaiian and Oriental Dances Harry Carey in "Bullet Proof" as its attraction for three days starting to day. Harry Carey is one of the most beloved western actors on the screen and his pictures are always relished by the fan who goes in for adventure stories, and theme of rapid fire ac tion, thrilling suspense, and amazing escaoades. In "Bullet Proof the lover of western stories has everything to his liking. Its story is one containing unlimited possibilities for the star. who is supported by an excellent cast of players. The atmosphere of the early western plains is successfully transplanted to the silver sheet, and finds Carey in a story that maintains his reputation to the utmost.

The principal roles are in the hands 01 Gloria Swanson, ttiuott uexter, inco dore Roberta, Theodore Kosloff. Claire MacDowell. Julia t'aye ana Mickey Moore. "Something to amnK About" is truly a golden sunbeam from the realm of mentality, basing its theme on right thinking and show ing the power of right thinking in overcoming the obstacles that seem to bestrew the path of everyday lire.

Hayes at tne giant pipe organ, the production is the last word In cinema excellence .ana is proving one of the greatest attrac tions the Strand has screened so far this season. NO ADVANCE IN PRICES i :.......J Blue Bird The announcement of the Movie Actor's ball, to be celebrated next Fri day evening at the Blue Bird certainly caused a stir in the dancing circles of the city. The event is absolutely orig inal and entirely novel. The scheme Is for the participants to make them selves up to resemble someone In the movies and to the gentleman and llKe wise to the lady who, in the opinion of the Judges, comes closest to the per son they represent, will go the prizes which the management announces will be real surprises, and something that cannot but be appreciated by the win rers. Here's the chance for the as pirants for the screen to demonstrate their sincerity. Remember the old saying, "little purrs or powder, little daubs of paint, make the movie actress look like what she ain't," and try out your knowledge of make-up. It's go ing to be one of the biggest nights the Blue Bird has seen which is only an other way of stating it will be one of dlte Ctarm of the Orient in tiiis big UroadtOaij Success VI (JEW WILLOW American They are all here, the artists who will compose the new big band at the American for the remainder of the gay dancing season in Phoenix. The arm load of strings and fingers in the shape of a banjo demon came in for the final rehearsal yesterday and was very much on the1 Job last night, and the lad who Is going to blow a nesty trumpet will be on deck for the first long blast tonight, making a complete band and the best that ever nit this section by far. American dancing fol lowers have been inquiring of the management all season asking if it would ever be possible to get the original six band that played the sea son at the American last year, but Manager Street even went them one better and got the original six plus some' more which is more good for tune than any of the dancing patrons had expected. No additional plans for a season of Joy at the dancing palace need be made for the arrangements are complete for the season. You'll see more dancing delight at the American this winter than Tias ever been imagined in Phoenix. Get out to the American tonight early for the old gang Is on Its toes and anxious to show the old pep that you were so wild about last season. Because ot its decision, expressed at the recent bond election, to expend (655,000 in extending and Improving the water, sewer and fire prevention systems. Phoenix will be called upon to pay a tax increase of 8 cents on the $100, according to an unofficial esti mate of Mayor Plunkett yesterday. He estimated that the city will have a $50,000,000 valuation on the next as sessment roll. Following out the figures, it was dis closed that had the entire bond issue carried, the increased taxation would have been a small fraction over 12 cents on the $100. According to this estimate, by voting to add another 4 cents on the $100, Phoenix could have realizen an enlarged paving program, and extended and improved park and playground system, a new city hall building and remodeling of the present structure, and a $100,000 state armory. Official canvass of the-v votes cast on the bond issues will take place Dec. 13. However, as there was a very light vote cast, it is not expected that the canvass will reveal any material change in the unofficial figures. Regarding the park and playground system, the new city hall and other civic improvements which have been long1 under consideration. Mayor Plunk ett said that an ordinance was being prepared which calls for the formation of a city planning commission with a membership of about 100 representa tive civic workers. This commission will work In conjunction with the firm of Bennett & Parsons, the professional city planners who have been retained by Phoenix to assist in formulating ideas for the general development of the city. According to the mayor, this commis sion probably will be called upon to consider any future proposed bond Is sues for civic improvements before the vote of the general public is requested. Under euch a schedule needed im provements will be fully outlined by this firm which will submit the report to the city planning commission. This commission then will make its rec ommendation to the city commission. It is believed that by this method the general attitude of the people will be known before any ordinance calling for a bond election will be passed. Admitting the city hall, and' espe cialy the jail and police department, was in a deplorable condition, none of tho city officials interviewed yester day could suggest a remedy. They pointed out that as the people of the city voted against expending any money in this direction it would not be ad visable for the city commission to in clude such improvements in the budget for the ensuing year. Because of the cramped conditions now endured in the police department the suggestion was made, and probably will be carried out, that a basement coal bin be cleaned out to serve either for the office of the chief of police or as a municipal court At the present time police court is held in the private office of Chief Brisbois. This arrangement handi caps both the court officials and the police department. Officials were ot the general opinion yesterday that no more bond elections for city improvements will be held very soon. o RADIO FOR RIVER BOATS The day of the jintrle bell and man ual steering in steamboating on the Mississippi Kiver having given way t electric buzzers and power steering by levers, now comes tho wireless ns a means of operation. The war department has shipped from Washington wireless outfits to bo set up in St. Ixuis, Memphis and New Orleans and upon the six tow boats which will comprise the new ex perimental power fleet for the St. Louis-New Orleans barge operation. Grounding on a bar 'will no longer mean a walk of many miles from the bank to the nearest telegraph station to summon assistance. The "S. O. S"-4r will go out by radio from the boat la self. A wet summer Is healthy because the rain washes the air and flushes germ laden dust away. Viola Dana at the Columbia As its special feature attraction the Mauk's Columbia theater will show "The Willow Tree," the super-produc- costume creations do so much toward the success of the show; there Is a very pretty little love story and the laughter comes from the audience in wave on wave, in fact, the laughs come so fast that many of the audience are still holding their sides when they are leaving the theater. This week Marie Rich, the new lead ing woman, is the new feature and this dainty little actress is a real feature. She has already won many friends and is going to be immensely popular with the Elks patrons. Tomorrow will be the regular sou given to each lady present, and Thurs day night will be another cabaret night a weekly feature that is now looked forward to with eager anticipation.
