Movie Review. DAVE PEYTON Composer, Musician, Critic The Grand Andrew Bishop and Cleo Desmond, assisted by the all-star cast, ably pre sented Taylor Holmes great triumph. “Smooth As Silk,” on last Monday night. The story is very interesting all the way through, and there are some exciting moments. Bishop made a good confidence crook and was perfectly assisted by Lional Monagas. Cleo Desmond and Sussie Sutton, the sweethearts of the crook.-, over made good, these two ladies are real artists. Mr. Criner, as an investigator, who had a previous police record, was a picture in the role and by the way. his line delivery was very plain and audible at all times. Chas. Moore, as the flat building janitor, was funny in Irish dialect, and Chas. Kay, as the chauffeur for holding, the investigator was very good. Mr. Duncan and Mr. Bruce, as corrupt police official-, were natural in the portraycl. Chas. Olden and Isa belle Jackson, the wops, kept the house in uproar all the time they were on the stage. This is a good show and don’t fail to see it. SPECIAL SALE! ii <1 You Can Get That Record Success “DOWN HOME BLUES” , i (Black Swan Record) , 500 in Stock Get it Now!

Life had taken Rosemond through gambling houses and Chinatown. Suc cess had brought her tumultuously to the stage on glittering Broadway. Love had told her if she wanted love there could be no marriage. Heed lessly she had sown the wind. "If at the end of thirty days you still want me, then I am yours.” And now she waited the whirlwind she would reap on the thirtieth day. “BRING HIM IN" At the Vendome Theatre, Sunday, October 23. A girl enters the eden of the hunted man and she almost brings about his downfall; but unlike Eve of old this modern woman rescues her Adam from the penalty and in some unusu ally dramatic sequences saves the day. The man, a thorough sport, faces pun ishment unflinchingly and even saves the life of his pursuer when he knows that by so doing he will be captured. It is an absorbing mystery story in which the suspense is sustained until the end. _ At the State’s Theatre, Sunday, Oc tober 23. A big vital drama of a big-fisted man—through whose pulsing veins flowed the red blood of a fighter—and a story that teenis with romance and vigorous action. Down to defeat he went, many times—but defeated he never was, and each time came up stronger.

CHICAGO, ILL. ||| MUSIC I By Mildred Bryant-Jones How to Practice—-Part 1. That so few people really know how I to practice with profit is an astonish ing fact. There arc numerous cases I where students of music do not ad [ vance as they should simply because . ! they do not use their practice time as ' they should. Be it understood that many students do not advance for the reason that they have no real interest ; in their work and are "merely taking j music"—as they say because their friends do or because their relatives desire or require them to do so. But in the majority of cases, the failure to accomplish a reasonable amount of benefit comes because of actual lack of knowledge as to how to proceed. To instruct the student in the proper method of practice study is first of ill the teachers’ duty and no good teacher will fail in this regard. To do so is to admit plainly that one either does not know the fundamental re quirements of good teaching or that one does not care. In either case such an instructor should be shunned. A few helpful suggestions from time to time will rebound naturally to the benefit of the teacher and student. Many people never think ot prac ticing one or two measures at a time but grope haltingly through the whole piece—never even stopping to correct mistakes which they make. Such work can be productive only of faulty, uneven, undesirable playing. When notes are struck incorrectly, or the time is not accurately kept, either from nervousness or thoughtlessness, the measure or measures involved should be practiced slowly and evenly (the student counting time) until no mistakes are made. The Musical at Bethel A. M. E. Church on Sunday evening, October 16, 1921. was a tribute to the excel lent work of Mrs. James Allen Mundy. The team work of the adult singers was remarkable. The tones, well blended, their correct rendition of the music sung, and above all the admir able attention to the slightest atten tion of the directors' baton—these things call for special commendation and bespeak the value of the training which they are receiving. It is not possible to mention each item of in terest on that program, but the piano solo by a small whose name was not learned) should be praised. Mine. Antoinette Gaines, soprano, sang to the delight of the audience. An espe j cial charm of this talented and well trained artist is her admirable simplic ity of presentation. Utterly devoid of (camouflage she renders her songs in a natural and with all truly artistic manner.
