FROM ONE YOUNG AMERICAN TO ANOTHER:
A HAT THAT ONLY A YOUNG AMERICAN
COULD WEAR * *





Jackie Sturr, the
Young American
n:ho designs Young
American hats. She,
too, has uon fame
through these dar-
ing, bravely simple
little creations which
only Young Ameri-
cans can wear.



INo sooner

were Young Amer-
ican hats offered for
sale than they became
Hollywood's newest and
smartest enthusiasm! And
why not? For who could be
more alive to each new cur-
rent of fashion than the
young stars of Hollywood?
Who could typify more su-
perbly the gay modern spirit
of the Young American?

Here is Ahce White, for example, photographed in one of
the new Young American models which she keeps to wear with
the different ensembles in her wardrobe. She is only one of
the well-known film favorites who have discovered this smart,
modern way of settling their hat-problems. These younger
actresses say: "We are tired of wearing the hand-me-downs of
Paris — the unbecoming copies of French models designed for
women old enough to be our grandmothers. We are Ameri-
cans — and young! We want a style designed for our own per-
sonalities—a mode that only a Young American could wear!"

And that is exactly the idea behind Young American hats!
They are designed by Jackie Starr, the young millinery genius



discovered and

trained by the

House of Gage,

America's most dis-



tinguished hat-makers.



Alice White, popular star in First National and fita-
phone pictures. She is one of the many well-known
Young Americans loho wear Young American hats.



Jackie is herself a Young
American, not yet twenty
years old. She never fails to
give the true Young American
touch to every hat she creates!
In order that you may have
one to wear with every cos-
tume. Young American hats
are priced extremely low. Each carries in its lining the
modern symbols of the Young American: the boiv for supple
grace: the arroiv for unswerving speed. And each hat is sold
to you in a gay red-white-and-blue box carrying the same
symbols. You'll find them awaiting your selection in leading
shops and department stores. Look for the bow and arrow!
If your favorite shop or store has not received them,
won't you write to Jackie Starr herself? Address her Dept.
PO, Gage Brothers & Company, 18 South Michigan Avenue,
Chicago. Write to Jackie, anyway! She'll be delighted to have
you consult her about your clothes-problems, or to hear any
suggestion that you make concerning her designs.

DESIGNED FOR YOU BY JACKIE STARR * MADE FOR YOU BY GAGE * EACH IS $5 (BOX included

THERE are ■women in the world,
blessed with millions and with
maids, with easy access to every source
of beauty, who still have the dull, dead
complexion of a careless frump !

For it is not alone a question of
money, nor of costly cosmetics, how-
ever helpful, however pure. The fact is
that thousands of women frustrate their
creams and lotions because they neglect
the a-b-c of health — they do not keep '
themselves internally clean.

Women who would be in perfect
health — who would have complexions
clear and free from blemish — should
know the benefits of Sal Hepatica!

This famous saline not only banishes
constipation, but it frees the blood-
stream from the poisons that bring
blemishes. It neutralizes the body acids
which dull the skin. It helps complex-
ions to become smooth, pure, youthful
and translucent.

Well do the smart women of Europe
know the benefits of salines to the com-
plexion and the skin. To the famous
spas — Vichy, Carlsbad, Wiesbaden —
distinguished people from the four
corners of the earth come to "take the
cure." And physicians long have ap-




>K-*S» v^'



predated the saline method for correct-
ing a long list of human ills.

Oal Hepatica is the American equivalent
of the wonderful saline springs. Colds
and acidosis, rheumatism, headaches,
and auto-intoxication give way to its
use. Digestions are regulated. Sluggish
livers respond. Complexions bloom!
Taken before breakfast, Sal Hepatica
is speedy in its action. Rarely, indeed,
does it fail to act within thirty minutes.



Get a bottle of Sal Hepatica today.
Keep internally clean for one whole
week. See how much better you feel,
how your complexion improves. Send
the coupon for the free booklet, "To
Clarice in quest of her youth," which
tells in detail how to follow the saline
path to health and beauty.



Bristol-Myers Co., Dept. G-1 19. 71 West St., N. Y.
Kindly send me the Free Booklet, "To Clarice in quest
of her youth," which explains the many benefits of
Sal Hepatica.

WEDDING bells will ring out shortly for Virginia
Brown Faire and Duke Wome, an independent
director.

Virginia, you remember, was once married to Jack
Daugherty who, in turn, was the spouse of Barbara La
Marr.

"V\ 7HEN you pay a visit to the Talmadge home you wade knee
*'' deep in gazing crystals, and psychic phenomena get in your
hair. Norma, Constance and Natalie are all believers in fortune
tellers. Constance had luncheon at a little tea room, "The Bottom
of the Cup," every day for a week. When you've finished the
creamed chicken and cake your past and future passes before you
in tea leaves.

Constance was the despair of the lady fortune teller. Every
day she came and e%ery day she wanted a new fortune. And every
day she wailed, "But don't you see any romances?"

of Maurice Costello, film idol of
fifteen years ago, and mother of

dead.

The Costellos were divorced re-

mance between Dolores and John
Barrymore.

■\jfRS. COSTELLO appeared only
■'■ '-'■once on the screen, when she made
a tour of the world with her family
in 1912-13.

Maurice starred on that occasion
in a combined travelogue-drama
known as "World Trotters," and
produced by old Vitagraph.

In recent years Mrs. Costello had
managed the careers of Dolores and
Helene.

and to Callot Soeurs for clothes
. . . but the Callot model watch
she wears is no farther away
thanyour nearest ELGIN jeiveler.



A thing is fashionable only if enough
women of fashion adopt it. The first
ELGIN Parisiennes were introduced
a mere year ago . . . and today over
150,000 women are timing their com-
ings and goings with Parisian flair and
ELGIN accuracy. There is Mrs. A. J.
Drexel Biddle. Everyone in New York,
Newport, Paris, and Bieuritz, knows that
her taste in clothes and accessories is
faultless. Which explains her liking for
costumes by Callot. So when Callot




designed a series of cases for ELGIN
Parisienne watches Mrs. Biddle was
among the first to slip one on her wrist.
And though she must go to Paris for
Callot clothes, a Callot Parisienne watch
can be purchased no farther away than
'round the corner or across the street
... at the nearest ELGIN jeweler's.
The usual role is reversed . . . you need
not go to Paris, for Paris has come to
you . . . via ELGIN. But only the
designs come from Paris — the Pari-
sienne watches themselves are made and
cased by ELGIN. American efficiency,
economy, timekeeping accuracy, wedded
to Paris style ... at a truly American
price. Ask any reliable jeweler.

"No!" said Helen.

"Helen Ferguson?" finished the girl.

Helen was carried fainting from the shop.

nine or ten dozen pairs of gloves.

"T WANT real spirit stuff in this

Director.

So they summoned the shade of

"What experience?" demanded
the director, frowningly.

But he finally turned the trage-
dian down because his hoofing was
weak.

A RTHUR LAKE'S first stage role was
•^»- Lillle Eva in an "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
show.

Night after night he died to the accom-
paniment of Uncle Tom's lamentations
and might have continued to do so indefi-
nitely had it not been for an ice cream fes-
tival held next door to the theater.

W hen Arthur saw the cream being dished
out he announced Lilllc Eva would not
die that night. Instead she would fill up on
frozen dainties. Lots of persuasion and a
promise of cream after his death finally got
him back on the job, much to everyone's
relief.

It seemed to Arthur that Uncle Tom
was much too lachrymose that night. He
stood for it as long as he could, then, in a
voice plainly audible to half the audience,
blurted out:

"Say. Shut up and lemme die before that
cream's all gone."

TT is sometimes possible to blow one's own
-'■horn a trifle too loudly, as the following
instance, related by Betty Compson, goes to
prove.

Betty was visiting the oflice of her husband,
James Cruze, when a girl who had been rec-
ommended as a screen possibility was ushered
in.

Naturally the first question asked, after
she had disclosed her identity, was whether
she had ever had stage or screen experience.

"No," was her reply, "but my friends all say
I have an angelic voice and play divinely
on the harp. And I am noted for my seraphic
disposition, too."

"Little girl," said Cruze, kindly, "you
would be wasting your talents in pictures.
AVhy not ask St. Peter for a job?"

THE Young gals never seem to
light, romantically speaking ; how-
ever Loretta Young and Grant With-
ers were seen lunching together
very intimately the other day and
SaUy Blane and Arthur Lake were
found at another table in the same
restaurant.

I hope that's not wrong. I hope
Loretta wasn't with Arthur and
Sally with Grant. They look so
much alike, sometimes you can't tell.

TOHX.W^ MACK BROWN feels that he
J would like to do as much for young BDly
Bakewell as George Fawcett did for him.

Johnny Mack wants to make an athletic tjpe
out of Bakewell, but it's some job, for Bakewell
likes his ostermoor. Brown was teaching
Bakewell the bicycle leg motion, having him
lie on his back and move his legs in the air as

though riding a bicycle. A few
minutes later Brown looked
around and saw Bakewell's legs
in the air stationary.

"What! Tired?" he caUed.

"Nope. Just coasting," said
Bakewell nonchalantly.

TJELEN FERGUSON tells
-'- -'■this one on herself. It
seems that Helen is always be-
ing mistaken for someone else.
At openings the crowd accuse
her of being everyone from
Gloria Swanson to ZaSu Pitts.

And at ISIontmartre the
signature fiends dash up and
say:

"Oh, Miss Daniels — may I
have your autograph?"

Helen is a good sport about
it, but she has grown just a
little weary of having people
fay. Aren't you Bebe Dan-
iels? Aren't you Buster Kea-
ton? .^ren'tyouRin-Tin-Tin?—
or almost anything except
.\ren't you Helen Ferguson?

One day she went into a
glove shop. The girl behind
the counter beamed and said:

Head of the famous House of Pessl. . beauty advisers to
aristocracy for over I OO years p^ n c" C C I

odvises this way
to Skill Beauty



"■/ earnestly recommend to my clients that they
use only the soap blended of palm and olive oils.
The use of Palmolive is especially important
because its gentle action leaves the skin in a
healthy, smooth, normal condition which is
the very foundation of a beautiful complexion."




Vienna I,
Kaerntnerstrasse 28



IN gay Vienna, where the women are
enchanting; in romantic Budapest, on
the Danube— there is one name in beauty
culture which has been recognized for
over a hundred years — the distinguished
name of Pessl !

Today, in the celebrated shop across
from the opera in Vienna, S. Pessl carries
on the tradition of the Pessl name. The
crowned heads to which he has minis-
tered are evidenced by the interesting
group of royal crests he is authorized to
display above the windows of his typically
Viennese shop.

He has served many of the queens of Europe,
and has numbered such dignitaries as the Ex-
Empress of Austria among his distinguished
patrons.

To his select patrons, Pessl recommends
a very simple treatment for retaining youthful
loveliness . . . the same treatment advised by the
outstanding beauty specialists of Paris, Berlin,
Rome, London, Genena— everywhere beauty cul-
ture is praaiced.







Palm and olive oils in soap

"I should naturally have been
led, by my knowledge of the s

complexion effeas of palm and olive oils,"
says S. Pessl, "to have invented a soap made
exclusively from them."

"As these oils are already combined in
Palmolive Soap," Monsieur Pessl explains,
"I earnestly recommend to my patrons that
they use this soap and no other."

The famous "international" treatment

The poisonous and dangerous secretions
of dirt and dust, of make-up and cream which
find their way deep into the
pores must be removed. Palm
and olive oils, as they are
blended in Palmolive Soap,
act to soften the skin, to cleanse



Above the doorway of the Pessl Shop, across from

the opera house in Vienna, may be seen crests of

House of Pessl has acted as Beauty Adviser.



the pores, to refresh the natural coloring.

To get the utmost benefit from Palmolive
Soap, you are urged by all the experts to fol-
low this treatment, twice a day: with both
hands make a rich lather of Palmolive Soap
and warm water. Massage it gently into the
skin, permitting it to penetrate the pores, to
free them from all impurities. Then rinse,
first with warm water, later cold. An ice mas-
sage is invigorating as an astringent.

M. Pessl's advice is echoed by such famous
specialists as Lina Cavalieri, of Pans; Elise
Bock, of Berlin; Bertha Jacobson, of London.
Wherever women seek the best skin care
they are told by professional experts : safe-
guard beauty with Palmolive Soap.
