Fake Acting Schools
Target for Wrath
Of Screen Stars,
Motion, picture actors throughout
tho country aro much Incensed over
tho propaganda of tho fako schools
of motion plcturo acting that
spring up throughout the country
and simply take money from mis
guided young men and women
without giving them ho slight
est Instruction. That schools can
teach acting to tho person who
has natural ability In that direc

will admit. But they will not ad

anyone who Is not naturally adapt

schools of acting that havo been
referred to for asserting that such
a thing can bo dune.

the star of several notable plcturo
plays, Is one of the most outspoken
of her craft regarding the schools
and Miss Michelena has recently

"These schools," declares Miss
Michelena, "are doing llnflnltely
more harm than many of us( real

not to be at all measured by tho

than this pretty face and a short
course of instruction, one might find

Is this misconception among many,
and that innumerable girls believe
motion pictures a short cut to "easy
money.' We also know iust how
far mistaken they aro In this. They
will also be disillusioned, but often
too late. Relying on the rosy expec
tations engendered In tho first in
stance by the fake schools and their
criminal publicity, they have Btartcd

out adequate equipment In lther
courage or talent. They Have bioken
away from previous mooIngs and.
when the shock of disappointment
comes, often have no plate to turn.
Shattered hope means n moral strain
that manv girls arc unequal to.

ple should employ ex'ery device to
show these fake schools In their true

Big Increase Is Shown
In G. W. U. Enrollment
A review of the progress made by
George Washington University since
1911 shows an increase in the maximum
enrollment from 1.270 in 1911-1912 to 1.793
in 1914-1915. with an indication that the
maximum registration for 1913-1916 will
reach approximately 1.900. according to
the annual renort of Rear Admiral
Charles Herbert Stockton, president of
"The improved and Improving condi

Why Tolerate Catarrh?
You have noticed, no doubt, that any
cold aggravates nasal catarrh, and the
flow of mucous amazes you that such
objectionable matter could find lodg
ment in your head. To ignore this
catarrh when the cold subsides is
wrong- because it continues to slowly
injure the delicate linings of the nasal
passages and clog them uf..
To correct catarrh, cleanse the nos:
ttils frequently with a solution of warm
water and salt, insert vaseline on re
tiring, and take' a spooriful of Scott's
Emulsion after meals for one month.
Scott's acts through the blood to feed
the tissues, and contains soothing
glycerine to check the inflammation
and heal the sensitive membranes.
Scott's is pleasant to take.

'SHOWN AT GAYETY
Wrothe and Watson, or Watson
agd Wrothe, Try Out Thea
Just what Influence tho three-ring cir
cus had on tho newest departure in en
tertainment cannot bo actually deter
mined, but theatrical managers through
out tho country aro watching tho ex
periment of Ed Lee Wrotho and Billy
W. Watson In heading two scparato
and distinct shows with tho same cast
on the burlesque circuit this season.
Tho double show Is hero this week at
tho Gaycty, and Is the first of Its kind
that has ever been tried. It upsets
nil the principles held In burlesque for
generations and yet It retains all tho
burlesque features Its promoters claim.
Ed Wrothe Is a product of tho cir
cus. Billy Watson "Sliding Billy" Is
really a product of the District, as ho
had his first stago experience here with
old John Grieves at tho Bijou. Wat
son was a member of the Grieves stock
company three years. Wrotho has not
been with a circus for years, although
ho filled almost every job that could
bo filled except that of acrobat or trick
rider. He finished as a first-class clown
and from the circus went Into vaude
ville, thence to musical comedy and
then to burlesque. For years he was
with Blcklo and Watson.
That Is where Wrotho met "Sliding
Blllv" Watson. Thcv were both under
contract with Joe Hurtlg this season.
nnTT both had decided never to appear
In burlesque again. The sncgcstlon was
made that they try out a double show,
each man anncarlnsr In his own particu
lar style of show, but entirely senaratc.
They ojre starred so equally that neither
has tho least chance for offense. The
same companv supports both. The
posters carrv both nameii. (In nnatem
showing Wrotho's picture the show Is
called tho Watson and Wrothe show,
and on posters with Watson's Picture
the show goes as Wrothe and Watson.
One day tho Wrothe comedv heads the
bill, and the next dav the Watson com
edv sturts when tho curtain first rises.
Watson's show by the way. is called
"Tho Patent Office." and the setting Is
supposed to be the Interior of the Patent
Otilco museum In this city.
