Residence Phone No. 475 Office Phone No.l the glowing future Life is getting kinder every day Men are striving "harder to be true Never mind what scornful critics say, Overhead the 3kies are shining blue. Through the clouds the sun of truth appears, Selfishness is breaking down at last; j< 0 w the future glows with happy years. Peace shall bless the ashes of the past. Better days than we have ever known Shall our little children live to see. They shall claim contentment for their own, They shall have the blessings of the free. They shall dwell with neighbors kind and fair. They shall walk with brave and gen tle friends, Goodness now is growing everywhere, As the star of happiness ascends. Men are holding bigger dreams today Than were ever dreamed in days of old, They are building here a better way, Worth is now a brighter gem than gold, More and more men share their broth er’s care, More and more they scatter mirth and cheer, Kingly thoughts are growing every where, Hatred has begun to disappear. Life is getting fairer every day, Hope is shining bright on every hand, Old-time fetters now are thrown away. Freedom is the bulwark of our land. Here are signs which every eye can . see Of radiant future for our youth, Men are toiling for the world to be, Out of darkness shines the light of truth. —Edgar Allen Gest. m m m Mrs. Leon Mason spent a few days in Tampa during the week, the guest of friends and taking in the big South Florida fair. • • • Miss Ruth Issacs, after a very de lightful visit in Ocala, the guest of her aunt, Mrs. J.

PAGE SEVEN NOTICE All Social Items Must Be In By Neon Thursdays The Shiek The following criticism of the Shiek from a current magazine will be read with interest by those who saw this strikingly attractive picture at the Temple this week: “The 9,984,521 odd people who are scheduled to pay admissions to the theaters where The Shiek is playing will have the disappointment of their lives if they think that this movie will afford them any of the adolescent* thrills that were provided in such abundance by the book. “For The Shiek in film form is aa clean as the virgin sands of Sahara. Although it follows the plot of the novel fairly closely, the sting has been removed with great care and precision. The affair between Lady Diana and the handsome Arab has been placed upon the same plane of purity with Ivory soap. “In other respects, however, The Shiek is a worth-while entertainment. The desert scenes are well staged and beautifully photographed, and there is some good action when the forces of the Shiek do battle with the henchmen of the bandit. Omair. Ru dolph Valentino, in the title role, strengthens the conviction that he is one of the few fine actors of the screen. He lacks variety of expres sion, but he possesses a sense of re straint, and he is graceful and well poised to a remarkable degree. His only real fault is that he uses too much shoe polish on his hair.” Quite a number of Ocala people have already had the pleasure of see ing The Shiek in Jacksonville, Tam pa and other citie3, and all, without exception, pronounce it a most beau tiful production, exquisitely filmed and wonderfully realistic in its many | thrilling scenes. ; Whether yon have read the novel : or not, you want to see the screen | production of the Shiek without fail, i It will be shown at the Temple next i Monday and Tuesday. • • • Mr. and Mrs. A.
