ADVENTURES OF THE TWINS L— — _ BT OLITE ROBERTS BARTON - "Valley of the Movies” The sixth of the Seven Valleys that the Twins had to BO through on their way to the i.ur.d of the KoAknotts was called the Valley of t$e Movies. But Nancy and Nick did not know this as they looked down Into Its depths from the top of a hill. "Qh. ho!” said Nick to the dove, who was guiding them. ”\Ve don't need to stop here, do we? All I see Is a building apd Nancy and I can go right past It.” The dove shook his head sadly. “Don't think that you can fool Twelve Toes, the Sorcere".” said he. •'Twelve Toes knows all about you. Just where you are and what you , are doing and If he cannot stop you altogether, he is going to delay you all he can. He has a magic ma • chine which can throw pictures over the Seven Mountains and all the valleys to this place and he intends you to see them. The building Is a movie theatre.” "But we'll shut our eyes and not look.” protested Naney. "But I tell you they are magic pictures and that you cannot help yourself.” cooed the dove mourn, fully. "I'll fly on as I did before and wait for you on a tree top at the other side of the valley." Away he flew and the Twins ■tarted down the path. And what do you think! The very first billboard said. "Step inside and A see Charlie Chaplin.” B It seemed as though they couldn’t get by, whether or no. The Green Shoes were certainly bewitched and In they walked as though journeys and Fairy Queens and Important messages counted for nothing at all.

M. 300 Madison Avenue, next St. Liter's Community School Brings Out Talent i BY MABEIj FONDA GAKEIKSEN | Director, Children's Theatre Guild of Rochester, N. 1, The next national step In educa tion will bs the children's theatre. ' We have started it as a com- | munity movement in Rochester and the results have been so splendid : that I foresee its adoption by cities ' all over the country. The dramatic field for little folk has far-reaching possibilities. It is high time that children learned what , constitutes good drama and good acting. Otherwise there will be no development in the American stage. Plenty of fine music is written ex pressly for children, but there is very little dramatic literature for them. We cannot begin too early to teach children good taste and high stand ards, not only In music but in drama. The children's theatre need not be merely a school to make actors and actresses. It wiss teach poise and personality, cultivate the speaking voice and raise the standard of Eng lish. Astonishing gifts are disclosed in little folk. Our experience in bring ing together 60 Rochester children In a community dramatic class al most makes me believe in reincarna- ]: tion! Where does genius come front? Here wo havo a little Bernhardt I and a tiny Julia Marlowe! Our "'Bernhardt" is 7-year-old Jonatha Jones. She is realism it self—a wonderful actress in depict ing terror, anger, anguish, tragedy. Our llttlest prodigy is a beautiful child of 6—Rosa Apple, who is a second Marlowe. Everyone calls her "Rosy Apple.” Her parents are Rus sian and Rosa was born after they ■ landed in New York. Her dramatic | imagination is amazing: she tosses her long, shining, black curls and ‘ twists our hearts In painful pleas- I ure with her irresistible smile and charm. A little Polish girl in the class is a second Maude Adams. The Herwit I twins seem to be the'coming Dolly sisters. And we have a young Frank Mayo an embryo Willie Collier and a budding Faversham. Children of genius like these are hidden away in the schoolrooms of every city. Can't we discover them and help them make something of their genius? A national children's theatre movement would be an im mense forward step In child edu cation. "WRAP AROUND” SKIRT > , Is the absorbing question of what is or is not fashionable keeping you awake of night*? Just fold the drapery of your skirt about you and you may lie down to pleasant dreams. Add a fringed hem and you will be as fashionable as it’s good for anyone’s pride to be. The formula is simple. Just wrap j it around, ravel out the bottom or [ slash It into fringe, and button it UP the front. In case the material doesn’t lend itself to raveling the desirable efTect may be obtained by sewing matching fringe around the bottom. The “wrap-around" skirt is made of homespun, ratine, tweed, flannel or one of the new sport silks—crepe knit or silk homespun As to colors —you have full paint-box range. !

I raised my hand as if to unclaso my beads, and drawled deliberately: "Put up your gun—first.” As the man started to place the automatic in his pocket Jack sprang upon him. struck up his arm. and the gun flew far away and fell among the bushes. After two park policemen had walked off with my assailant. Jack took my arm. Without a word, with out a kiss, he turned me homeward. We walked In silence back home. The gutter in front of our apartment was still running almost curb high. I released my arm from Jack s grasp and tried for a pretty jump over the murky water. My narrow skirt hampered me. Down I fell, face down, Oat into the black pool! Jack fished me out and put ms on my feet with many an apology for what had happened. But goodness knows, he was not at fault! He steadied me. wiped the grime from my closed eyes. I had splashed his new summer serge from collar to ankles. And I dripped black mud! And so we looked at each other and broke into laughter, held hands* and climbed up to our third floor, the happiest two in the wide world. Thus ended our first quarrel. “Pride had a fall that 11016!’* I called out, presently, from the bath tub. •Over nothing at all!’* Jack called back from the kitchen, where he was hanging my soaked garments. "AH utterly futile.’’ said I to Me. “But what if that wretch had fired? And killed Jack? It might have happened! You might this very mo ment be a widow—'* The rest was unthinkable. I rushed into my kimono and out to my husband. Jack was washing my pearls un der the kitchen faucet. “Queer stuff,** he commented, as he handed them to me. “One of my prospect* is a jeweler, he was ex amining pearls when I saw him yes terday. I couldn't tell his from yours. He told me there are two successful imitations, scientific ana synthetic. One kind is built up in layers, the other is solid—fused—I don’t know hew.
