Seen On The
Stage --- Screen
(By Edwin R. Meiss)
Lionel Barrymore plays at the Ma-
jestic today in "Jim the Penman," re-
viving on the screen a melodrama
which has played upon the English
stage for a generation. Barrymore
takes the part of a deft bank cashier
who uses his skill at forgery to save
his employer from prison, and in
order to escape detection himself is
forced to join a professional band of
forgers. The tense situations result-
ing from this motivation yield an
abundance of dramaticm aterial which
Barrymore handles with the utmos,
* * *
A rather silly farce with a loose plot
is the vehicle of Mr. and Mrs. Carter
DeHaven at the Arcade today. The
picture, entitled, "The Girl in the
Taxi," is adapted from the stage play
by Stanislaus Strange. It deals with
a young man who by a ,series of in-
discreet actions disproves the name
"mollycoddle" which his business-like
father has applied to him.
A unique experiment in the movie
realm has been carried out by First
National in the- screen version of
James Whitcomb Riley's classic of
boyhood, "The Old Swimmin' Hole."
This picture with Charles Ray in the
lead, has been screened completely
without the use of a single subtitle,
the actions of the characters being in-
tended to explain themselves. The
photography is well done, and while
the result of the experiment is not
altogether successful, still the attempt
is worth while to develop a photo-play
which makes the audience do a bit of
the thinking and not have every move-
ment explained in words. "The Old
Swinnin' Hole" is scheduled at the
Majestic for the latter half of the
"Sowing the Wind," the second
melodrama of the week, with Anita
Stewart playing the star role, appears
at the Arcade on Wednesday. The story
is intricate and, jumbled, dealing with
unknown mothers, anxious fathers,
and forgotten children. The love
theme.runs, or rather dashes, through-
out the play (in what movie does it
not?), and after many separations and
hosts of intrigues the two sweethearts
are finally brought together for good,
and thenthe fade-out fades. This pic-
ture is well produced and 'exciting,
but could scarcely be termed enlight-
Lane Hall Helps
Students Imp rove
(By Martin A. Hlaver)
If you are an artist's model, a movie
operator, a blacksmith, an hostler, or
an undertaker, and you want an out-
let for your talents (with a considera-
tion; of course) try the employment
bureau at Lane Hall. They can place
you in your element if anyone can, and
you know Carlyle's extra beatitude:
"Blessed is the man who has found
Some 1,347 jobs have been given out
by the S. C. A. this year. Of these 298.
were permanent board jobs, 61 tempo-
rary of the same kind, 127 were steady
cash positions, 151 were opportunities
to earn room-rent, and 710 were mis-
cellaneous temporary jobs. Cooks,
butchers, barbers, clerks, chauffeurs,
mechanics, salesmen, stenographers,
and janitors were all given work.
Gardening, cleaning, apple-picking,
ditch-digging, corn-cutting, painting,
window washing, and furniture moving
were included among the odd jobs
which were given to students.
Fill Places Satisfactorily
According to Miss M. D. Notley, who
is in charge of the bureau, the stu-
dents fill their places satisfactorily in
nearly every case. Foreign students
are at first somewhat awkward and[
inexperienced, but their willingness
and ability to learn soon overbalances
this difficulty. Local people who reg-
ularly employ students to work .for
them are beginning to ask for the for-
eigners, usually the requests being
made for the men who have worked
for them before.
During the months of January and
February the general depression in
business affairs was felt at the em-
ployment bureau, for very few stu-
dents were given work during that
time. Since the rate of pay has been
lowered from 50 cents to 40 cents, and
since spring has brought to light lawns
and gardens which demand care, no
difficulty has been met in supplying
students with work. Lately, due to
lack of applications, work has been
given to some townspeople who are
out of employment.
Year's Total, $93,865
The value of these jobs has been-
estimated to be $93,865 for the year so
far. Last year the total for the entire
year-amounted to $95,400.80. Comdiar-
ing conditions and taking into consid-
eration the increased value of the dol-
lar, it is evident that more work has
been done this year than last.
