Linda Watkins, not so well-known to movie audi-
ences, makes a visible impression as the faithful,
deluded wife in "Good Sport," the modern domestic
relations picture at the Majestic.
She searches for a city apartment to occupy while
her husband is abroad, only to find that the one she
wishes to lease belongs to her husband's inamorata,
abroad with the husband. Just another of those co-
incidences so common in the movies.
The remainder of the story folows her activities
as she moves into the apartment and leadt the life
(apparently) of a young lady about town in order to
discover the lacking qualities of a wife who loses a
Then John Boles, as the better man, steps into
the picture, trustfully woos Miss Watkins, and the
rest of the picture follows the course of least resist-
ance. Both Mr. Boles and Miss Watkins serve
admirably in their places, especially since Boles
doesn't mess up the picture with the singing of love
songs, as so often happens with his roles.
Allan Dinehart is Miss Watkin's ipeffective hus-
band; Hedda Hopper is the usual sophisticated
mother. Greta Nissen, with her usual seductive form
and lack of ability to act (or maybe it's just the kind
of acting we're afraid of), plays the kept woman of
the erring husband; Minna Gombell is one of the
young ladies who assist the wife in learning the art
of husband-keeping. All do the type of work expected
from) such characters; none are outstanding.
AT THE MICHIGAN
During the past year there has been no dearth
of motion pictures based on public dance halls, and
that fact ,coupled with a gangster plot, keeps "Danc-
ers In the Dark" frofn beirng a commendable show.
Miriam Hopkins, who almost established a reputation
for acting by her performance in "Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde," is slipping farther and farther toward the
limbo of forgotten faces because she hasn't been able
to find another role so admirably suited to her par-
ticular talents. In "Dancers In the Dark" she plays
the somewhat difficult role of Gloria, a prostitute
with a heart of gold well enough to get by, and that's
about all. Jack Qakie and Eugene Pallette go a long
way toward dragging the picture out of the mud, nor
can we fail to mention the little blonde girl with
the Polish accent (we think it was Polish) who be-
sides being the best comic relief in the whole picture
sings a song that will rot your socks. That song alonc
is worth your half dollar.
There is an animated cartoon that is better than
the ordinary, a comedy which is exceedingly funny
in spots, and a wohderful, wonderful news-reel in-
cluding such attractions as the denouncement of
prohibition by Mrs. Scandrett and Dr. Lorenzo, anc
the first football practice at Notre Dame. Hurrah!

Not content, with their series of
personal appearances at the Mich-
igan Theatre the Glee Club trooped
into Chubbs' Cabaret en masse last
Wednesday night for a cup of cof-
fee and a sandwich, and just as we
thought they would[ began to sing
a lot of their lousiest songs. Some-
one ought to lock the Glee Club up

THE SECRET OF TREASURE
By John Clarke.
Synopsis: Jack and his Uncle
are searching for a treasure in
Africa. They are on their last day's
"We're n e a r1y there, Uncle,"
panted Jack breathlessly. "I never
saw so many hills before in my life.
What time is it?"
"It's only four o'clock," said
Jack's Uncle. "It's funny that we
haven't been warned again. I ex-
pected to be dodging knives and'
bullets all day," laughed Jack.
"What is that ahead?" exclaimed
"It looks like another dead man,"
replied Jack. "Hurry and we'll
see." It was a dead man. They
searched his pockets and found
nothing of especial interest except
a paper which identified him as
"W4y he probably threw those
knives," exclaimed Jack's Uncle,
"because the initials of "M" were
carved in the handle."
"Look," said Jack, "here is 3 or
I of the same knives in his pack."
"He has been shot," said his
"His partner probably got tired
of this place and killed him so he
wouldn't prevent h i m getting
away," put in Jack.
"Well, at least we won't be both-
°red by them any more," said Jack's
Uncle. At seven o'clock they reach-
ed the base of Treasure Mountain.
One queer thing about the treasure
was that it could not be seen after
four o'clock in the afternoon. In the
:morning it could not be seen until
At about ten o'clock Jack and his
Uncle went to the base of Treasure

OSCAR'S CONTRIBUTION FOUND
. AT LAST'!
Dear Captain Chuck:
I was certainly surprised when
you asked me t'o write a poem, and
the first thipg that came into my
read was the Junior Girls' Play. I
thought that what with the girls
working so hard for it and getting
so little recognition for their ef-
forts, it was only right that I should
immortalize them, kind of, in a po-
tem. My first start was this:
The J. G. P. is over,
And we are going home.
For we are going home.
But right away I saw that this
wasn't quite the thing. It didn't
- sound just right. S o, nothing
daunted, I sat down again and
wrote the following:
Now the J. G. P. is over,s
Ladies hear their classes call.
Bringing news of mnidsemesters,
Isn't this a fine world, to be sure?
And there we will have to let things
rest. Immortalizing the J. G. P.
isn't as easy as it sounds, I guess.

One frequently sees people who have diagnosec
themselves as being anaemic. Now anaemia is
decrease in the amount of blood as a whole, its cor.
puscles, or certain of. its constituents. The diagnosis
can be made only from a blood count and a blooc
examination. Certain people may have a pallor whiclt
the casual observer would consider as anaemia but
their blood count may be quite normal.
The total number of red blood cells is normally
4,500,000 per cubic milimeter in women and 5,000,00(
per cubic millimeter in men. The hemaglobin of
coloring matter of the red blood cells may be de-
creased while the blood count remains normal s(
that both factors have to be examined.
Any anaemia occurring from loss of blood, undei
nutrition, chronic poisoning, or in the course of som(
other disease is called a secondary anaemia. So th(
first step in treatment is the determination of th(
cause of the anaemia. There is, of course, an acut
anaemia after any large hemorrhage. Here the cause
is quite obvious and improvement is usually rapid is
there is no more bleeding. Any small hemorrhage, i
it occurs repeatedly, as in chronic nose bleeds, mad
cause anaemia, Focal infections such as from septR
tonsils or abscessed teeth may act as chronic poison-
ings and bring on a secondary anaemia. The clear-
ing up of these infections usually does a great dear
toward improving the anaemia.
Hemaglobin contains iron and in order to improve
the hemaglobin content of the blood, it is ofter.
necessary to increase the iron intake of the body
This may be done by dietary means, eating more of
the foods which are rich in iron such as whole cer-
eals, egg yolk and leafy vegetables. This may be
supplemented by taking some preparation of iron.
but this should be done only under a physician',
directions. To get results it is necessary to take the
iron in large doses. Most of the patent medicine,
labelled "blood builders" and so on, do not contain
enough iron to be effective and are simply a waste of
In 1925 it was found that small traces of copper
in the diet would make iron more readily convertible
into hemaglobin. There was an influx of copperized
foods and copper compounds., However, the well
balanced diet contains sufficient copper so that all
these extras are usually not necessary.
The main points, then, in treating secondary
anaemia are: a determination of the cause, an ade-
quate diet, good general hygiene and supervised
