The Game of Life
THOSE who consciously brood on their sorrows were committed by Dante to the deepest pit of hell. They are in love with trouble. They like to gaze on shadows. When all comes to all, what we call the game of life is just what makes life worth living. Life’s ene mies are not cares and wor ries, deprivations and misfor tunes. They are its greatest al lies. Its enemies are the damp fogs of the spirit, where there are neither shadows nor light. —Dr. Nansen. With great wealth comes great want. Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets are an effective laxative.

Clean System Clear Skin You must be free from constipa tion to have a good, clear complex ion.

A perfectly just and sound mind is a rare and valuable gift. ® New York Post.—WNU Service. There’s No Harm Asking Questions Nor Answerin’ ’Em THERE’S no harm in asking: Who held the featherweight championship of the world for elev en years? What celebrated American sports man was expelled from France when only sixteen years old? Who were the two men who per suaded the Football Rules commit tee to adopt the forward pass? When? What major eleven first made the best-publicized use of the pass? What wrestling match created one of the most enduring of all interna tional sports controversies? What was the youngest combina tion of golfer and caddy ever to win a national championship? Can you name the infield com bination that had the greatest suc cess for the world famous Old (Bal timore) Orioles? Who was the American who won an Olympic championship in an event in which he never bad com peted previously? What tennis player was ranked among the first ten during nineteen of the twenty years which elapsed between his first ranking and his retirement from major tournament play? And probably there’s even less barm in answering: Johnny Kilbane. He won the title from Abe Attell on February 22, 1912, and lost it to Eugene Criqui on June 2, 1923. Willie Hoppe, the billiard cham pion, who then was making the first of his very success- I ful foreign appear- I ances. The French government decided I there was too much 4, Jk betting on billiard ex- I Si *1 hibitions. When the f " < y-Jm court rule d that such - affairs were games of skill rather than of chance the govern- I m en t nevertheless advised all foreign Willie Hoppe players to take quick leave of the country. Naturally this was merely a bureau cratic display of red-taped petu lance and Hoppe has many times been France’s honored guest. John C. Bell of Pennsylvania and Paul J. Dashiell of the Naval Aca demy in January, 1906. In the Har vard game that year a Yale pass re sulted in a 30-yard gain which reached the Crimson three-yard mark. From this point a most im portant touchdown soon was achieved. In 1907 two long for ward passes largely contributed to a Yale victory after the Elis had trailed Princeton by ten points The Gotch-Hackenschmidt match in Chicago in 1908. After two hours Hackenschmidt walked out of the ring, thus relinquishing his world championship. He claimed that Gotch had almost gouged out his eyes and that the American was so well covered with oil that it was almost the same as trying to grap ple with a “well-buttered eel.” When Francis Ouimet won the U. S. Open after the playoff with Vardon and Ray in 1913 he was twenty years old. His caddy, Ed die Lowery, was ten years old. Doyle, lb; Reitz, 2b; Jennings, ss; McGraw, 3b. Robert Garrett of Baltimore. He was captain of the Princeton track team and decided to go to the first Olympic Games in Athens. Shortly before sailing he heard that discus hurling—then unknown to American track and field enthusiasts—was to be included on the program. Since he was a weight thrower he had alriend fashion him a discus which sketchily resembled the one to be used in the games. Garrett prac ticed with it for a week or so and at Athens far outclassed the Greek champion, Paraskevopoulos, in his own country and at his own game. William A. Larned. He was ranked sixth in 1892. From then on until he retired in 1912 he was ranked first eight years, second five years, third four years and fifth one year. The only year he missed out was in 1898. During that season he was helping the Rough Riders. • * • Johnny Evers says Ea Delenanty hit a ball harder than Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig or Jimmy Foxx. . .

STAR I | DUST | ★ JM.ovie • Radio $ ★ ★ ★♦★By VIRGINIA VALE★★★ THERE was a rather funny reaction to an interview that Edward G. Robinson gave a reporter for an Italian news paper some time ago. He praised the work of Frank Cap ra, the director, who is Italian by birth, saying that Capra re fused to direct gangster films. He remarked that he thought it was because Capra did not want to make pictures which showed his own people in a bad light. When the storm burst it hit, not Capra, but Robinson. Seems the Italians thought gangsters were something like senators—an American institu tion of which Americans were proudl The long discussion over which actress would play the mother role in “Stella Dallas’’ has been settled at '1 last.

And he is profiting by what he has learned. He knows that, when the picture is released, the comedian’s part may have been cut and cut until there is practically nothing left of it. Both Samuel Goldwyn and Para mount want him to do his specialty in pictures, but he had held off, even to the extent of refusing $12,000 to do his stuff. The very funny Ritz Brothers, who can be relied upon to send movie audiences into gales of laugh ter, encountered something that was not so very funny, to them, when they had to learn to skate for “One in a Million,” the Sonja Henie picture that’s all about skating, with Miss Henie doing five big numbers. The brothers simply could not learn to skate. They couldn’t even stand up on skates. Finally the difficulty was solved by having spe cial skates made for them. — * — Speaking of romantic stories, even the movies can’t beat the one of Wallace Ford’s long search for his mother and his finding her just before Christmas. It’s about 38 years since she had to put him in an English orphanage, and Ford found her living in an automobile trailer, and the wife of a blind match seller. Now he is going to do all the things for her that he has planned during the long years when he was trying to find her. Probably nobody will ever be able to explain why certain radio pro grams succeed, any more than mo tion picture producers can tell why some pictures smash box-office rec ords and others that seem just as good flop terribly. There is a delightful radio pro gram that has been going well for considerably more than a year. It’s called “Dot and Will.” And so far no sponsor has bought it. Yet the company has actual proof that thou sands of people listen to it. Apparently a lot of old stories are to be re-made during 1937. “Ben Hur” is up for dis ’JHKl jussion—maybe with both Clark Gable and Robert Taylor ~M in There was a time when, if three mmm f eatured Players , were in a picture, it -.fW'V JbJfi was advertised as 'wKjjmSßM* i having an all-star > | cast.
