"Why Change Your Wife?"
Story of Married Life,
Filmed on Lavish
Scale.
Cecil B. DeMille's latest Para?
mount Artcrafl production,
"Why Change Your Wife?"
will come to the Ahilizi) The.
utre Thursday, October 21.
It is described as a striking
drama of married lite lavishly
presented. Gloria Swahson and
Thomas Meighaii are the fea?
tured players. The story is bv
William DeMille.
The plot centers around Rob?
ert ami Beth Gordon, married
for ten years, but now begin?
ning to drift apart. Beth was a
charming girl. She has become
u too wifely wife and bores her
husband with tier excessive so
licitude for his comforts. He
finds diversion in the company
of vivacious, pleasure loving
Sally Clark. Literal minded
Beth imagines th?lll in love. A
divorce follows, ami Robert
marries Sally. Too late Beth
discovers why she lost her hus?
band and, blossoming like a
rose, develops into society's
gayest figure. Sally, on the
other hand, is transformed by
marriage into a worse house
hold drudge than Beth ever
was. Robert's eyes are opened
when he again sees Belli, and
through a dramatic series of
events they uro brought happi?
ly together.
The picture has been produc?
ed with ull the beauty of' set?
ting, mastery of screen tech?
nique, and admirable attention
to detail that wus characterist?
ic of Cecil B. DeMille in "Male
und Female" und his other cin?
ema classics. Sudu Uovvun and
Olgu Brintzlau furnished the
scenario.?adv.

The Church As a Power
House.
[By I>r. .1 ?nies t. Yauco.)
"I like to hear that man
preach, because he gives me
Huinethitit; tu live by during the
week." That is what n busy
business man said about Iiis
pastor. It was high praise.
Why should people go to
church, if it is not for some?
thing like tilts? There is no
particularmerh in being bored,
even when the process is label?
led "pins," and there is no re?
sistless fascination in listening
10 a pulpiteer perform, even
when be does it well. 'Chen
what is the merit of church at
tendance?
If one goes back to his work
Monday as lean and spent, as
listless and inspirationless, as
empty of courage and as * oid
of hope as when he closed shop
Saturday night, the church has
?uit met his need.
There should be something in
the hour in (rod's house to lift
us out of the sordid and sel?
fish, und set us anew on our
?ptest for the Holy Oruih
There should he something in
the minister's message that
makes tired souls look up and
take hold afresh, and wavering
feet Straighten and steady A
man should go out of that sanc?
tuary with a shining vision,
and a cleansed Conscience, and
a singing heart, and a will that
is charged tifresh with the pow?
er that overcomes the world,
Then the church must I o n
power house, it is a mistake
to try to make it a pluy-lidiise.
People do not go to the church
for what they gel, at the the?
ater. The theater eati beat tin
Church when It comes to ellter
tailiment. The preacher who
has dropped down into nothil g
but an entertainer has forgot,
teil his commission.
It is not enough for the
church to be a schoolhouso. Ii
must instruct, but it must do
more. .Men m-ed more than in
formation; they need inspira
tion. They need motive powei
strong enough to drive life up
lull.
The cliurc.lt has missed its
mission when the switch n
thrown on Sunday morning,
and no power leaps out from
that central dynamo to recharge
the spent wires of human lift
that are there to be made alive
again.
