ACTRESS RISES FROM
"E TRA" TO IMPORTANT ROLE IN "SKIN DEEP" Marcia Manon Began Her Career in Europe; Now Well Known. Starting her screen career as an "extra" not so long ago, Marcia Ma non will appear as one of the leads in the exceptionally strong cast playing in Thomas H. Ince's special produc tion, "Skin Deep." Miss Manon's success on the screen is an excellent example of what can be accomplished by study and work. She started to work in the pictures as an "extra" at the Lasky. lot. Hay ing had a little stage experience in Europe, Miss Manon put it to the best advantage in every bit of work as signed to her. The result was that she attracted the attention of the di rectors and was therefore given more prominent parts. Her first piece of real work that was crowned with success was her role of the drunken wife in "Stella Maris." In "Skin Deep," Miss Manon plays the part of the wiley, cunning wife of a ringleader in a gang of crooks. Poisoned by conceit and flat tory, she yields to the importuning of another and more dapper member of the gang and joins him in a' plot to "railroad" the husband into prison. The part calls for some particular work from the actress, being in the nature of a dual personality role, and Miss Manon acquits herself with ex eeptional credit. "Skin Deep" is an extraordinary "crook" play coming to the Columbia Saturday through Sun day.

Donald's new picture, which will be n seen for the first time at the Louisi- r ana Theatre, commencing Sunday, is N laid in the mysterious isles of the s South Seas, made known to readers of modern literature by Robers Louis e Stevenson Pierre Loti, Jack London, i. Somerset Maugham, Frederick O'- t Brien and othbr authors of high re- t pute. Miss MacDonald has the role s of a young woman who has been r brought up by her mother to hate t all professore of religion, an an- I tipathy that is the result of her be? I ing deserted by her husband, who was a minister. When the young t girl is broiught in contact with al white haired missionary on a far off isle in the Southern Pacific she dis covers the peace and comfort and happiness of true religion. The I transformation of the young wo man's character is brought about I gradually and naturally and this, to- 1 gether with a chamring love story and a host of dramatic situations, makes "The Infidel" an unusually entertaining and interesting picture. Cauliflorew and Brussels Sprouts Both thesq vegetables belong to the cabbage family. They are dwarf mem bers of it, but more fitely flavored and delicate. Cauliflower is really a group of owers on their stems bleached by the leaves which encase them. Brussels sprouts' shduld be firm well headed and green when ready to use. To cook these vegetables, proceed as in cooking cabbage They may be boiled, creamed, pickled, escalloped with cheese, baked with stuffing, or served as salad after being cooked. Cauliflower and brussels sprouts are both valuable for their phosphorus ani calcium content. 0 Home-Keeping Success.

Coates, the presi- N dent for 1922-'23, greeted its guests part as they arrived. Standing with Mrs. thai Coates were the other officers, Mrs. in 1 Geo. Foos, vice president; Mrs. G. A. thai Waterman, secretary; Mrs. Henry of Jastrenski, treasurer; Mrs. W. S. be Holmes, chairman membership com- has mittee; and Mrs. David W. Thomas, sea retiring president. Dr. Coates, Mr. Waterman and Yarborough also as sisted Mrs. Coates as ushers. Just before the performance start- I ed, words of welcome were extended Bal by Mrs. Coates for The Little Thea- low ter, in her usual gracious manner. She no told how the Guild grew out of the fru study of modern drama and the dra- cldo matizing of plays by the members of Sal the Study Club. "The suggestion to 1Fe have a little Theatre Guild was made tre by Mrs. D. W. Thomas," said Mrs. the Coates, "whose pet idea was the fos- the tering of a Little Theatre by the Cli i Study Club. And so Baton Rouge has liti Fa Little Theatre of its own. The ho " Guild," she said, "wishes to provide afi I wholesome amusement, and has no a] Smonetary desire ercept to produce the ful " plays. While the Woman's Club Douse L has and is proyiding for the produc- qu " tions and ;now through the generosity Cr Sof Mr. A. E. Rabenhorst, the use of a , vacant '`ot near by has been appro- M, t priated for the Guild's shed or work- Fl . shop;, the- ultimate desire is to own El our own home." fo: The Junior Department was ex- de plained by the president who said that ch soon the Guild would have them pro- M duce three plays. One especially in- tic e teresting fact, she said, was that two - of the plays that night were writ= Cl I ten by local, people, and th& thul G a was done at the invitation of Mr. et. s Clair Favrot the producer of the e evening; and the other play was e written for him.by Doris F. Halman, a who writes one act plays for Harvard. The fiirst play, "Flood Waters," was I written by Mr. Clive Wetherell Ker e nan, and staged by Mr. Kernan and iiMrs. Geo.' Foos. r The play was a tragedy, showing the effect, the contrast, danger the 's flood waters of th Mississippi have 5 upon those homes, sustenance and very life 'that are in constant danger Iand finally the tragic ending where , once prosperous and happy homes e are inundated.d' 1o The secondi play, "The Dog," was " written by Doris H. Halman, author 1- of a play, w hich Mr. Favrot produced last year, "Will O' The Wisp." The writing of. "The Dog," by Miss Hal man, especially for Mr. Favrot's pro ductioh at'fThe Little Theatre in Baton Rouge is quite an honor and Miss ur Halman MiA' state in her book that - this was done for Baton Rouge, and that it was, shown first here. .. This play,:shows how even a lovely L," social "oitci,. a murderer, can be he taught fokileness through love of Id. his faithf'trdog. !al The third play was written by Leo he dosia R. Harris. Before the play, ps, Mrs. Harris,' in a most interesting ve talk, gave her personal experiences with the vodoo cult., In her easly child - hood, her old mammy was voodoo. U The impressions this made on the child's mind led to a study of the voodoo cult, which was at its height in New Orleans in 1850. The snake was the sacred emblem of this cult, which was introduced from India; hence, the name "Le Grand Zombi." Mrs. Harris received the highest praises, and her play is conceded to be the best ever produced by the 4 Little Treatre. One of the delightful 4 feautres of this play is that it is re plete with Louisiana color and with quaint .creo1i expressions. After the performance Friday night, Mrs. Harris was presented by Mrs. V. V. Sessions, for the Guild, with a fountajn, pen, and Mr. Favrot with a silver pencil. The opening performance is gen erally tthe hardest because folks are out of the ihabit, properties lying over, enthiuliasm to be, brought to highet pjikt. Mr. Fav rot's produc tion h$s been a decided success. Par tieul$y notp4 on 'was the fact that all three plays were written for the occasion, and not one of them had ever be'ofar-i iTiijayed. Again of intenrt was that two were written by local people, bring ing out conditions in Louisiana, her folklore, and history. Mr. Favrot de- mi serves the credit not alone for the Ki production, but for the encourage- th, ment of local play writing. Mrs. tw George Foos' painting and Mr. Clive ta W. Kernan's painting showed their "( Sexcellent ability in designing and us painting scenery, they having done it ta all for this production. fo In the work shop, mentioned by Mrs. Coates, there is an exact replica , of stage on which the performances ei are given. The scenery is set and et rehearsals are held right on this M stage iii the very'scenery in which H *the performance is given. Part of o -this shed is racked so that scenery I may be stored. This work shop dem- F t onstrates that matters are facilitated, ai a costs cut down, and properties con if centrated, all to the advantage of the Little Theatre. i- With the excellent playing on the s part of characters in the plays shows bi s. that Baton Rouge has much talent T 's. in that line, and expresses the hope si k. that through the Little Theatre, some f :y of the interesting local history may S. be presented in such artistic ways as n- has been the first production of the s, season cby her own talented players. o ir. s- THE GOOD FELLOWS. t- It could scarcely be Christmas in ' ed Baton Rouge without the "Good Fel a- lows."
