Series Two I By Beatriz Michelena 1 / No. 14. \ i t?j """"""'???n. J ?v THERE aro a great many things that enter into life's success beside salary and applause. The success that tlie public thinks It sees for us and the ono that wo feel lnsldo ourselves aro two very different things. The latter Is the ono that really counts. The girl just starting out on her life's career often lose sight of this She accepts the public standard of success and works for It at the sacrifice of everything else. Everyone Is apt to do this?the girl who is trying to break into motion pictures as well as others. There Is a price too dear'to pay for a. place at the top of the iieatriz Miclieleim Beatrix Mlchelcnu ladder. Many, many girls have found tills out through and experience. The smile of triumph that you soo on your favorite star's face inay bo just n mask covering depths of woo underneath. Even the pub lic's applause, which she tries to deludo Itself Into thinking adequate recom pense for what she has sacrificed. Is bitter to her. 1 know picture stars, my "screcn struck" friend, who would envy you those' things you have not sacrificed much more than you envy them their fame and popularity. A good friend, without pretense, a mother's lovo and dear home ties, a world's respect In one?those are some of the elements of human happlnss that all the applause and money in the world cannot recompense for. Fame Is very sweet when It comes to one naturally and as reward for hard and earnest endetvor; but it is very very empty when purchased on pay ment of the real and true things In life. This may read a great doai like a sermon?and I don't want to preach? but if It Is a sermon, it Is at least very practical gospel. You will find it a safe rule to go by, if you are in the struggle for fame, to cling always to thoBe things you had found truest and dearest In your home life. They arc the big things. Human happlnes sand self-respect?there can be no success without these. (Copyrighted April 1916 , by Beatrix Mlchelena.)
