Norah Gourlay, Pretty English Girl Over At the Majestic, Is Domestic and a Suffragist Came Over to This Country Two Years Ago As a “Specialty Dancer’’—With Elsie Janis in “The Slim Princess.’’ Declares That the Methods of American Women for Suffrage Are Far Saner and More Effective Than Her English Sisters. By DOLLY DALRYMPLE MISS NORA H GOURLAY Over at the Majestic this week, in tlie clever musical comedy, “Around the Clock," is the prettiest sort of a girl, who is so English, you know, that you can almost cut it with a knife. She's English from tlie ardwn of her pretty head to tlie tips of her dainty toes and drinks tea hy the quart, and is “so good to meet you, my d-e-a-h!" Her good lqnks are all her own. She doesn’t take off lier complexion, her beautiful black hair, nor her red, red lips, and her eyes are even browner in the sunlight than they are behind tlie foot lights. She a graceful as can be, and Is a queer combination. She’s domestic, and a suffragist. When she told me this I was sort of like the 1fttie girl whose teacher scolded her for laughing “out loud" In school. “1 didn’t mean to," the little girl ex plained. “I was just smiling, and the smile busted." That was the way with me; I smiled cut loud and Miss Gourlay promptly asked me “Why?” “Oh. nothing.” t said, and mumbled something about an English suffragette being domestic. “Very well," she said sweetly. "I will repeat what I said. “I am very domes tic in my nature; I love home and all the tilings connected with it, and yet I’m a rampant suffragist. And please kindly nay suffragist and not suffragette. There’s such a difference, don’t you know. A suffragette seems more or less of a joke, while a suffragist is taken more seri ously." . “Your wishes shall be carried out in the matter,'' J said, recognizing the fact that this suffragist had a strong sense of humor. •To begin with,” Miss Gourlay resumed, “J'm not the English type of suffragist that one reads about in the papers. 1 don’t believe in breaking out windows and F ootwear at Cox’s Style 1199 An exquisite black Suede Pump, semi-colonial with dull metal buckle; recede toe; novel French heel.

We don’t want the men’s pan taloons; they aren't becoming, and we j certainly don’t want their politics.” “Then just bow does suffrage appeal to you?” I asked. ‘‘I’m a woman working for my living, and I believe in suffrage for working women," said Miss Gourlay. “They are the ones who are more directly benefited by it than any others. I heartily ap prove the equal salary question and I hope the time is not far distant when that will be one of the things that will be instituted through suffrage. A woman who does as good as a man ought to be paid equally and her services not under valued merely because of her sex.” "You are very youthful to have such pronounced views on the subject,” I sug gested, as I roughly estimated that the young lady, who was doing the talking, is scarcely out of her ’teens.” "I came over to this country two years ago,” said"Miss Gourlay, “as a specialty dancer engaged for ‘The Slim Princess,’ which Miss Elsie Janis was doing at that time. I chad danced a great deal in London and I have three cousins who are among the best fancy dancers in England. I'd never really thought of going on the stage, because as I told you J am very domestic by nature, but when the craze for dancing came aoout, my talents were In demand and the con sequence was, I accepted an offer for the stage and since I’ve been in the states, I've traveled in nearly every one in the union. This Is my second visit Bir mingham. I was here in Little Miss Fix-it,’ when Eva Tanguay played it. "Where did you learn to dance?” I asked. "Why, I ean'l remember ever having learned to dance,” said Miss Gourlay, thoughtfully. "The senso of rhythm Is horn in me. 1 suppose It Is with every other dancer. Most of them are i.ae that, you know. 1 do very little dam> ins in tlie show I’m with now. hut for merly 1 had all the lovely dances In every play J w as In. ’ •■Did you always know Just what you were going to dance—or did you, like many others, Improvise? ' 1 asked. ■oil, dear roe, no,” said the pretty ac tress. "No one of them ever really Im provises. That Is only a clever way they have of making a cut and dried step ap pear like improvising. That Is what you writers call 'the art that conceals art -but to my mind, it forms the basis of all good dancing." "\nd the turkey trot and the Tango what of those dances?" I asked. "The cleverest daijces to me are tl.t pantomime dances," said Miss Gourlay — • the kind of dances that the French peo ple do so beautifully. The turkey Hot can be made very beautiful or very vul gar So also with the Tango and the Texas tommy. They are all a lot of fun, 6nt they are too fast. P^aPS. thmigh; that comes from the reason that every body Is in a hurry these days, and the music Is so fast that all a body can do , just trot. One coudln't possibly be graceful to the rapid music that Is Played In the ballrooms nowadays. I remarked Miss Gourlay’s heaulifid skin—like a California pea<-h h«;, ch«ek" -•tem-or a deep blood red damask lose, and when I asked her how she acquired It. she laughingly said: “Not from a drug store. 1 if my skin Is good, as you are plaased to SUV It is, it routes from walklhg a great deal. You know, the average Eng lish girl spends most of iter time tramp ing. Miles ami miles a day the English girl walks, and the climate there, too. has something to do with it. Do >ou kn°'* that vour southern people remind me more of the English people than anybody I've ever met.' There's something gbout them that Is quaintly English, and tha from an English girl, believe me, is a ■great compliment." We chatted about our favorite actors and actresses and Miss Gouray enthu siastically expressed her admitation for the American stage and its devotees, put-, ting Elsie Janis ahead of all the cleat comedy slats, and Ellalaine Terris she considers without a peer on the Kng lish stage. , x ^ Miss Oour4ay’s ambition is to become a dramatic star of note, and she ftanklj says that she means to work and work until she readies the heights, for fhes not a I raid of work, but on the other hand likes it tremendously. In the meantime she is dancing and singing her way into fame through tht latest fad, “Tabloid Musical Comedy." / “You’re Right Madam, We Are Doing the Millinery Business of the City” Every day comments and congratulations greet us on our constantly crowded mil linery department. We have been signally fortunate and blessed with a big business this spring. But it isn’t due to any chance of luck. “Such really beautiful hats for so lit tle is genius,” said an ardent thrifty one. We answered: “The taking of infinite pains IS genius.” In our workrooms $ 10 hats are not simply thrown to gether—not even the $4.95 ones are. Instead, great pains are taken. Often hats at these prices are almost exact copies of an Esther Meyer model, or after Reboux or Talbot models. One of the most chic hats we recently sold at $4.95 was an actual copy of an Evelyn Varnon model. Most generally our $10 hats are replicas of either Marcelle Demay, Georgette, Alphon sine, Esther Meyer and other models* You see we import a number of hats for this ex press purpose. That’s why there’s so much inspiration! and distinction to Parisian j hats. Prices for dressy hats range from $4.95 to $20—of course other hats at less than the ( former and more than the latter price. ■ OL. TORNADO INSURANCE . LOUIS V. CLARK & CO.
