American Actresses Win Popa l*rity in Eurbp^OT..''^ Those persons who believe nothing but a pretty face Is necessary to make you a popular movie star should read what film producers In England and France are up against In their search for young women Who can make good In motion pictures, May Stranathau writes In the Pittsburgh Dispatch. They claim there are just as many pretty girls in England and France as there are in America—though doubtless this Is an exaggeration—but they admit their pretty girls do not screen as well as those of America. Tliey frankly ac knowledge the reason is lack of brains. These producers say brains are neces sary to success as a movie actress. Rene Navarre, French actor and would-be film producer who aspires to make his film city at Nice the rival of the 'one at Los Angeles, after which it is modeled, says he has tried hundreds of beautiful French women and girls, but they have failed miserably before the camera because of lack of the quick Intelligence necessary to catch the point of a pose. In despair, he says the only thing to do Is to start an academy for the training of camera stars. Miss Violet Hopkins, one of the few English girls who have made a success In motion pictures, attributes the sue-, cess of the American girl to her am bition, thoroughness, her willingness to work hard and her study of types, not only of to-da^, but In literature, In cluding history tand poetry. So the American girl scores again. CHEERFULNESS AS AN ASSET Why Mirth Has Been Called "God's Medicine" by Those Capable of Appreciating It Mirth has been called Gotl's medi cine. There are few persons who can not testify to the saving value of a smile. There Is a story tokl of a man who received a wire while on a busi ness trip that his business had been wiped out by fire. The depression which followed this news threatened for a time his mental balance, and he even gave serious thought to taking hlg own life. While in this dangerous mood he received a letter from his daughter, a girl of nine, which read: "Dear Dad dy—I went down to see your store that was burned and it looked awfuUy pretty all covered with Ice. Love and kisses from Helen." The man laughed and the day was saved. That glint of humor was like a ray of sunshine in a dark cell. The spirit of the man was released from the prison of his gloom. Lincoln on the day that he read to his cabinet the emancipation proclama tion opened that Important meeting by reading from Artemus Ward. When rebuked by one of his serious-minded cabinet officers for having called them Into an important session to hear such nonsense, Lincoln replied: "Why don't you laugh, gentlemen? If I couldn't laugh I would die." Emerson has said, "Nothing will supply the want of sunshine for peaches, and to make knowledge valu able there must be cheerfulness.**— Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
