The Japs Like Him !
John Bowers was a gentleman of
credit and renown,
But no one ever knew it till he
came to Mo vie-town
Where he joined the Goldwyn forces,
bringing notice to his name,
So he's overtaking Fortune as lie
climbs the road to fame:
The American motion picture fan
is by no means -ilone in his habit of
collecting photographs of screen
stars. John Bowers, well known
leading man in Ooldwyn pictures. has
just received a request for a portrait
from a Japanese fan. a self-confessed
"American movis actor worshipper."
The letter, which Mr. Bowers is d is -pkiying
proudly to everyone at the
studios, leads:
"May I have the pleasure of com
municating to you? I am one of the
mo.':t earnest American movis actor
worshipper, especially of you. 1
went and see your's at the Dcnkican.
Teikokucan Cinema Theatre in movis
every week. But I am very that I
have none of you're photographs in
my album. I hope you will be kind
enough to send mc you's, if you permit."
The Man With a Hundred
A man of a hundred faces is George
Ka-w-ceit, veteran of stage and screen
who, with the filming of "Peter
Ibhetson," in the Paramount eastern
studios, adds to his long list of char
acterizations that of Major ILLques
nois. A lifetime of playing widely dif
ferent and difficult character roles
has given Fwcett a polish and versa
tility achieved by few ootors, but he
himself says his features are largely
responsible for the sticcess that ac
companied his earlier efforts. Still,
George Fawcefct is not a handsome
The fact that none of his features,
either eyes, nose, mouth or ears are
of marked prominence, although all
are well defined, makes it possible for
him to step into nearly any character,
except that of a young man, which
liis age now forbids.
He has run the gamut of character
parts, portraying men of every race
seen on the stage or screen. In John
Robertson's "Sentimental Tommy" he
was an aged and cr ust y Sc o tch ma n .
A month later he appeared as a baron
of finance, and before another month
had passed he was seen as a Sicilian.
But he never has done the handsome
hero. His stocky build always for
bade such a role, and it was one of
this fine actor's secret regrets that he
never was chosen for youthful lovers
in his early days on the stage.
He never has been seen to better
advantage than as Duciuesnois. the
snft-bearted old fire-eater of Du
Maurier's story.
Pennsylvania and Ohio movie cen
sors cut out Romeo and Juliet because
Juliet is a girl in her teens conduct
ing herself in a most unmaidenly
fashion and the play abounds in kisses
and passionate love scenes. Having
thus eliminated the great dramatist's

That the President of the United

Milliarde wanted every de-tail of
the church and the ceremony perfect
So he went to a little German Luth

the Rev. Mr. Junge to come down to
the Fox studio and look over the
church set. Air. Junge did so. Not
only that, but he directed the play

the set.

AFTER you have cleaned up all
you can by scrubbing, raking and
whitewashing, it is a good idea to give
the kitchen, cellar, pantries, cupboards,
etc., a thorough dose of disinfection
vi;h a strong solution of formaldehyde.
For each thousand cubic feet of space
or for an ordinary cellar, use about
ten ounces of formalrleh de, pouring it
over five ounces of potash permanga
nate. You can treat pick rooms m the
same manner. Seal the room and leave
closed for several hours. Refrigerators,
ice boxes, cupboard.", sinks and all
places around the kitchen and wher
sver there is water should be given
ipecial attention either by scrubbing
urith a Ftrong solution of, say, one part
f formaldehyde to five parts of water,
r by Fpraying with an ordinary spray
nin or atomizer. The same spray you
ise for your garden will answer every
Formildtuyde solution, when used aft
a proper dilution, is not at all danger
cus to persons, woodwork, carpet or
utensils. Ry all means use sue and air
a much as possible.
The practice of shutting up rooms
to keep them clean is not healthful.
The musty smell of carpets and cur
tains in a cloned room is due to or
ganic decay. Many person, think that
the odor in the average cellar is un
avoidable. On the contrary, every cel
lar ought to emeu rwect and clean.
The foul odor generally comes from de
caying wood and vegetabie matter. No
house can be healthful over such a cel
lar. Some old houses arc known aa
disease breeders. Many peiple think
that such houses are unlucky whea
they are frimpiy unwholesome.
There is less sickness about the borne
and less sickness about the farm where
formaldehyde is used as a disinfectant,
germicide, fungicide or deodorant.
