Among the best known of those who ferry our favorites to and fro
across the country is Uncle Bob Harper, an elderly gentleman of color
who presides over the compartment-observation car, "Golden City," of
the Golden State Limited.

UNCLE BOB has hauled many of the biggest and best, and likes to tell
about the stars and their quaint ways. He is proud of having made
the beds of the mighty.

He was most impressed by the last sweep of Pola Negri eastward, as she
headed for Europe and her reentry' into foreign films. The entire resources
of the good car "Golden City" were turned over to the Perilous Pole — it
was occupied by Pola herself, her prince-husband, a secretary, a maid and
a \'alet, and Harper allows as how he never heard so many bells ring at
once in all his born days.

Uncle Bob still talks about that trip of Pola's as he \vields the duster.
He is firmly convinced that Negri was leaving pictures and was on her
way to take a queen job in some of those foreign parts.

IN some mauve and gray salon, you
may loll for hours while dexterous
fingers smooth the years and troubles
from your brow. Or, at home you may
use, yourself, good creams and pure, to
freshen your complexion and to make
smooth your skin!

And in both cases you may be wrong
— through no fault of the creams nor of
the technique! For many a woman un-
justly blames her lotions and her creams
while the fault is her own — and directly
her own! — in that she has failed to keep
herself immaculately clean internally! and
has thus robbed her creams and un-
guents of their powers!

She, then, should know the good ef-
fects of Sal Hepatica, which doubles the
potency of every lotion and unguent she
pats on her skin. By cleansing the system
of the poisons and waste, it clears the
complexion of defects. It keeps the skin
pure and youthfully translucent.

Sal Hepatica is the American equiva-
lent of the famous European spas

In the natural saline springs of Europe,
Sal Hepatica has a wonderful precedent.
These famous spas — Vichy, Carlsbad,

drawn the fashionable and distinguished
people from the four corners of the earth
to "take the cure." Our own physicians

heartily recommend the saline method
for restoring the complexion to natural
beauty and for correcting a long list of
human ills.

How They Manage Their Homes



Sumptuous is the
only word that
describes this
circular, domed
bathroom, adjoin-
ing Miss Griffith's
dressing room and
boudoir in her
Beverly Hills
home. Walls and
ceiling are of gold
moire silk, and the
carpet is water-
proofed. The basin
is black marble
with solid gold
faucets and fixtures

On this floor, too, is a house-guest room, not
yet completed, and the library. (No servants'
quarters — these are over the garage.)

This library has one wall devoted to books —
sets of Beaconsfield, Ambrose Bierce, Oscar
Wilde, Flaubert, Samuel Pepys, as well as
books of the stories that have been made into
pictures for Corinne, such as "Black Oxen."

Two large gold-plush chairs, cretonne drapes,
an oriental cabinet mth mirror and a dainty
table form the furnishings upon .a cafc-au-lait
carpet. This room has a railinged balcony
looking down upon the "Whoopee Room"
below — and from it, via two removable panels
in the doors, pictures can be projected upon a
screen in the lower room.

Now we will go downstairs, sauntering grace-
fully down the winding Italian staircase to the
hall below. Here, facing the front door, we see
the famous doors, imported from a Doge's
palace, and made in 1600 A.D., which lead to
the living and dining rooms. There are also a
mirror and a screen from this same source, in
the living room. These doors are square and
the Spanish arches, originally there, were
changed to fit into the period scheme, gix'ing
entrance to the Italian-French- Viennese living
room, all soft greens and golds.

Heavy brocade silk drapes in these delicate
shades adorn full length windows, looking out


the Bible. A bookcase holds books by many
modern authors. Pictures of Corinne in
various guises adorn a desk, above which hangs
a round mirror. Portraits of Oscar Wilde,
bought in Paris, and some rare tile pictures,
adorn the walls. Reading "lamps, flowers,
smoking paraphernalia stand upon a low table.
Walter's dressing room has all built-in equip-
ment — wardrobe, drawers, wall mirrors galore.
The bathroom is round, too; a separate glass
room holds the shower. Pale blue prevails.

Ne.xt to this is the guest dressing room where
visitors leave their wraps and pretty up. It is
panelled in rich silk from floor to ceihng, and
besides the closets, many pieces of precious
furniture and a rare ItaKan desk abide here.

Miss Griffith's bedroom combines
the softest flesh pink colorings, en-
chanting touches of silver in picture
and mirror frames, exquisite pieces
of carved crystal. Near the mantel
is a portrait of her as Lady Hamilton
in "The Divine Lady"

The modern version of a masculine
bedroom, as designed by Mrs.
Morosco for the man of the house.
The furniture is black mahogany;
the walls are ivory. The bedspread

"Foundation cleansing— the daily
elimination of all pore-clogging dust,
powder and rouge — by one means
and one means only, daily use of the
soap blended of palm and olive oils—
Palmolive! . . . / urge all my clients
to use it as well as my own Pasta Di-

Berlin W. 1 58 Kaerntnerstrasse
Rome-Prague- Vienna-Santiago

YOUR facial loveliness, according to
the celebrated Elise Bock, depends
upon "foundation cleansing." And foun-
dation cleansing depends on the daily use
of a soap blended of palm and olive oils.

The smartest women of the Mid-Euro-
pean world take all their beauty problems
to Elise Bock of Berlin. Madame Bock's
salons de beaute inRome,Prague,Vienna
and Santiago are well known to women
of fashion, who consult her constantly.

Known throughout the world

Many of our own lovely women go to
Vienna and hear from Pessl this same
truth. Madame Jacobson, of Lo?i(/oH; Masse oi Paris;
Attilio, of i?OOTf; de Neuville, of 5/. AIor/>2/ Lina
Cavalieri, of P^ra— these are just a few of the out-
standing beauty specialists who advise twice-a-day
use of one soap— and one soap only— Palmolive!
Leading American specialists have long agreed on
the importance of palm and olive oils in cleansing.
These are the reasons why Madame Bock stresses

the importance of
"foundation cleans-
ing." Powder and
rouge gradually work
their way into the

pores. Only apart remains on the surface. The rest
combines with dust, dirt and oil. And soon, tiny,
stubbornly hard masses form. Unless one washes
the face this special way morning and evening —
blackheads, pimples, dreaded blemishes appear!

A famous 2-minute rule

This is the 2-minute home beauty treatment Elise
Bock herself would give you in her select studio de
beaute: massage the warm creamy lather of Palmolive
into the pores with both hands, for about two
minutes. Then rinse thoroughly, first with warm,
then cold water. That is all.

What Elise Bock tells her Mid-European patrons,
Paris long has known, for today, in France— home
of cosmetics, leader in soaps and elegant toiletries—
Palmolive is oneof the two largest selling toilet soaps
... it is first in the UnitedStates and 48 other countries!

Style Note for Cooks! Alice White's perky

Easter bunny cap may not add spice to her

cooking, but there's no doubt in our minds

that it adds charm to the cook

HERE is a variety of dishes to tempt capricious summer
appetites — at luncheon, tea or supper.

Alice White has given us her recipe for Fresh Peas on
Toast, a light but satisfying dish around which to build the
healthful all-vegetable luncheon.

Cook the peas in an uncovered pot until tender, and salt
to taste. The brilliant green color can be retained by adding a
tiny pinch of soda. Drain, and for every pint of peas add a pint
of sweet cream, seasoned with a dash of pepper, salt and butter
and thickened slightly with flour. Toast thin slices of white or
wholewheat bread; place on individual plates and cover
generously with the hot creamed peas. Serve at once.

IRENE RICH says that Salad a la Philippine is a real "skin
food" and should be indulged in frequently. To serve two
people, she uses:

A narrow strip of red pepper
A narrow strip of green pepper
' 2 orange 2 tablespoons olive oil

2 halves fresh or canned pears The fruit's juice

Salt and paprika

Remove the pulp from the grapefruit and orange without
breaking the membrane. Cut the pear in lengthwise slices.
Cut the endive in halves, discard the outer leaves and wash
with care. Place the endive halves on plates; set the pear,

orange pulp, and a section of grapefruit just above the tips of
the leaves. To the fruit juice add the olive oil and salt; beat
vigorously, and pour over the salad.

PINEAPPLE TRIFLE is the lovely name of a fruit dessert
that Bessie Love loves! You'll love it, too, when the mer-
cury runs close to the top of the thermometer and none of the
usual sweets allure. The ingredients are:

6 tablespoons pineapple juice 2 eggs

3 tablespoons sugar 32 pint cream

Assorted fruits

Cook pineapple juice, sugar and eggs in double boiler until
mixture thickens. Set aside to chill. Just before serving, whip
cream and add. Cut the chilled fruit in small pieces — you may
use strawberries, pineapple, oranges, or any fruits and berries
in season. Add the fruit to the mi.xture and serve. This
dessert is made practical at any season by using the fresh fruits
that are available, or by substituting some canned ones.

AND to cool a parched throat, what could be more welcome
than a long, cold drink of Tennis Punch, made according
to the censor-proof recipe of Richard Barthelmess? The juicy
pineapple forms the basis of this one, also. Select a pineapple
that is large and ripe. Peel and cut into cubes. Make a quart
of fresh tea, which should be strained twice after fusing. Add
to the pineapple one pint of fresh, crushed strawberries; four
ripe bananas, which have been halved and sliced very thin; one
pint of unfermented grapejuice. Let all stand for at least an

^Meanwhile, boil in a porcelain kettle one quart of water with
two pounds white sugar, grated rinds of one lemon and one
orange. Strain this and set aside to cool. At serving time, add
to the syrup the juice of six lemons and four oranges; then add
the tea and fruit mixture, with suflicient cold water to make a
refreshing drink. Serve in tall glasses filled with cracked ice.

"Lovely smooth skin

fascinates," say
39 movie directors

"Nothing is so important to a girl's
loveliness as exquisitely smooth skin,"
says Frank Tuttle, director for Para-
mount, and sums up what 39 leading
directors have found out from their ex-
perience with motion pictures.

"Every screen star," he goes on to
say, "knows that people love it above
everything else. And because make-up
is of very little use under the strong glare
of lights in a close-up, a star's skin must
always be rarely beautiful."

This is why nine out of ten lovely
screen stars use Lux Toilet Soap — it
keeps their skin flawlessly smooth, al-
ways in splendid condition.

Laura La Plante, famous Universal
star, enjoying Lux Toilet Soap in the
modernistic bathroom which is among the
most interesting seen in Hollywood. She
says: "I've used the famous soaps of
France, and know that Lux Toilet Soap is
made the same way. It gives my skin the
same marvelous smoothness."

In Hollywood

— where lovely skin is essential for success —
9 out of 10 screen stars use Lux Toilet Soap

THEY stream into Hollywood,
beautiful girls from everywhere
over the country— all with one idea
inside their lovely heads. They are
going to become motion picture stars.

And they find out at once that
there is one thing they must have if
they are ever to succeed on the screen.
They must have exquisite skin.

"The most appealing beauty
any girl can have is exquisitely
lovely skin," says Herbert
Brenon, well-known United
Artists' director — summing up
the directors' experience. "To
survive the merciless test of
the close-up — with the huge

incandescent lights pouring down
on her — a screen star must have
rarely beautiful skin," Brenon goes
on to say. "The beauty of her skin
distinguishes every star I know."

This is why 442 of the 451 impor-
tant actressesin Holly wood, including
all stars, are using Lux Toilet Soap.
They find that it keeps the skin appeal-

ingly soft and smooth, so that even
the close-up reveals not a single defect.

Nine out of ten lovely screen stars
are devoted to this white, fragrant
soap — and all the great film studios
have made it the official soap in their
dressing rooms. If you aren't already
an enthusiast about Lux Toilet Soap,
which is made by the famous French
method, get several cakes to-
day. You'll be charmed with
its gentle care of your skin.
And it gives such very abun-
dant lather, even in the hard-
est water! Lfse it for the bath,
too — and the shampoo, as the
fastidious screen stars do.

Lya de Putti, beautiful Columbia
star, says: "I find that Lux Toilet
Soap is wonderful for my skin — it
keeps it so marvelously smooth."

Mary Philbin, charming star with Universal, says:
"Whether a star's skin is creamy, olive, or pink and white,
it mini have marvelous smoothness. I entrust mine to
Lux Toilet Soap— it's such a lovely soap."

Greta Nissen, beautiful screen
star, says: "Lux Toilet Soap feels
delicious to the skin and makes mine
so wonderfully soft and smooth."
