Purcell, winner of The Washington Tlmos' beauty con test, and the national beauty swocp stakes also, continues as she began her first dav In New York. "I am here looking for a good hotel, the future of motion pictures, and something to astonish m" mother does New York contain such things" she asked an in terviewer today. Miss purcell Immediately centered the Interest of New York newspaper men and answered their auestions In the simple, direct way for which she has become well known In Washington. She arrived In New York with the purpose of consulting with motion picture mag nates who have been in correspondence with her ever since she was proclaimed the nation's most beautiful daughter. Whether she will accept their Induce ments to enter upon the career of a motion picture actress, she declines to state positively. While t he beauty which dazzled the Judges of tho Los Angeles contest is Miss Purcell's most publicly oroclalmed asset, It has been dlcovered that sho has a supply of common sense, that oven outstrips her other possessions. "I don't like to be considered a 'rube,' " sho toldher Interviewers today, "ot I don't want to lose the one thing that makes a 'rube' something a little wiser than the cl"ty person." This being' about the sum total of In formation Miss Purcell divulged to the newspaper contingent about her partic ular plans. She followed this up with a statement that she had been edu cated in the Immaoulate Conception Convent in Washington, for which she devoutly thanked heaven, as her ex perience so far had taught her sho would need all the religion she can got to go through the difficult problems of liio motion picture world I The sum total of the things written about Miss Purcell by the enterprising young men who visited her at the be hest of their city editors seems to 'Do centered on the young woman's smile, which is described In the most ecstatic terms, and through which it would seem that the verdict of tho people or Washington and of the national beauty contest Judges is concurred in by the Now York experts who have so far seen her. Miss Purcell expects to spend the next two or throe days In consultation with the sgents of tho motion picture concerns, and will Anally make up her mind whether she will be an actress in the pictures or will return to Wasn Ington and her position as a stenogra pher at the headquarters of tho Ameri can Federation of Labor.
