cleansing of the skin.

"Soap cleanses the skin— cleanses the pores—
as nothing else can, and it is the basic essential
of successful beauty treatment. Much of the
work of the beauty expert is nullified by neg-
lect to follow this simple rule of complexion
care. It is, of course, important to use the right
kind of soap, because many kinds are not only
unsuitable but positively harmful to the com-
plexion. I always ask my clients to use Palmolive
Soap, which embodies the finest cleansing agents
for the skin."

Mr. Brook is partial to Pear Conde, which he describes as

"The loveliness of soft smooth skin

Janet Gaynor, Fox star, in
the charming paneled bath-
room built in Hollywood just
for her adorable loveliness.
She says enthusiastically:
" There's a caressing quality to
Lux Toilet Soap that I have
never found before except in the
finest French soaps — my skin
feels so delightfully soft and
smooth after usiftg it."

Phyllis Haver, charming Pathe star, is one of the 442
important screen actresses who use Lux Toilet Soap.
She says: "No star can hope to look lovely unless she has
a velvety smooth skin. Lux Toilet Soap leaves my skin
so gently smooth that I have no fear of the close-up."

never fails to touch the heart/'
say 39 Hollywood Directors

9 out of \^ screen stars keep their
skin lovely this way • • •

A LITTLE FLUTTER of emotion always creeps
into one's heart at the sight of a really fresh
and lovely skin.

Every girl must have petal-smooth skin if she is
to be truly attractive, Hollywood says. "People
respond instantly to the loveliness of beautiful
skin," says F. W. Murnau, Fox director — and sums
up the experience of leading Hollywood directors.

"All screen stars know this — they take the ut-
most care of their skin," he goes on to say. " For in
the close-up only the complexion of naturally flaw-
less beauty can stand the pitiless search of glaring
lights. Even slight make-up is apt to show. Girls
who attain success in the films have skin of amaz-
ing smoothness."

It is because of this that 442 of the 45 1 important
actresses in Hollywood, including all stars, use Lux
Toilet Soap. They have found that it keeps the skin
at its best: clear and smooth as a gardenia petal.

Remember: nine out of ten screeri stars use Lux
Toilet Soap — and all the great film studios have '
made this daintily fragrant white soap official for
dressing rooms.

Are you using Lux Toilet Soap? You'll love
the way it gives your skin such gentle care.

Marion Davies, famous star,
says: "Deliciously smooth skin is
such an asset. I am delighted
with Lux Toilet Soap."


Bebe Daniels, lovely Radio Pic-
tures' player, says: "Lux Toilet
Soap is a great help in keeping
the skin smooth and lovelv."

and luxurious bathroom built for her in Hollywood.

The next time you see her in a close-up, notice how
smooth Lux Toilet Soap keeps her skin.

Esther Ralston says: "In their close-ups stars are
more closely observed than women in any other profession. .
Their popularity largely depends on the beauty of their
skin. Lux Toilet Soap is excellent for keeping the skin
delightfully smooth."

Julia Dolinsky, Gasfield, N. J.
— Sorry to contradict you but you
have your companies mixed. It was
Fox and not Paramount that made
"Spealceasy." Paul Page, who had
the male lead, was born in Birming-
ham, Ala., May 13, 1903, and Lola
Lane, his leading lady, came from
Indianola, Iowa. She is five feet,
two inches tall; weighs 120 pounds
and has light brown hair and violet
eyes. She appeared on the stage
before going into pictures.

Joe Hembera, Cedar Rapids,
Iowa. — Bob Steele was born in
Portland, Ore. He is five feet, ten
inches tall; weighs 165 pounds and
has dark brown hair and blue eves.

married to George Webb. Lilyan Tashman
and Kathryn Car\-er claim New York City as
their home town and Betty Compson claims
Beaver City, Utah.

P. M., Paris, France.— How did you find
your way over here? Marian Ni.xon is her real
name. She is twenty-four years old and stands
five feet, two inches in height. Before going
into the movies she was a dancer. Charles
Rogers is being kept very busy so I don't think
he will see Paris for a while.

vost and Harrison Ford played the leads in
"The Girl in the Pullman" and Glenn Tryon

night." I think you have " State Street Sadie"
in mind.

shorter than Anita. Nancy Carroll has red

mother, Helen Fitzgerald Costello, was also
born and raised in Ireland, and her ancestors

OF all the rules in the primer of
beauty, the most important is this
— keep your skin healthy if you want it
to stay young.

On my little mannequin 1 have star-
red the six spots most difficult to care
for. These are the six places where im-
perfections come most quickly and where
lines form to strike fear to every mortal
woman's heart.

But treat your skin wisely — guard
well its health at the six vital spots —
and your complexion will tell only flat-
tering fibs about your birthdays.

Milkweed Cream will help you mar-
velously in caring for your skin. It is
ever so slightly therapeutic, and does
things for your skin that no other cream,
however expensive, can possibly do. It
is a splendid cleanser but, to me, its most
appealing virtue is the way it brings
smoothness to the skin. Roughness van-
ishes — blemishes disappear. Tiny wrin-
kles are discreetly smoothed away. Your
skin becomes smooth — clear — alto-
gether lovely.

Today, buy a jar of Milkweed Cream.
Mark on the label the date you start
using it and notice how your skin im-
proves in a single month.

I wish you would send the coupon
for my booklet on skin care. And, if
you have any special beauty questions,
feel perfectly free to write me for advice.

p. S. Milkweed Cream is marvelous against
sunburn. It soothes away the redness and
smarting. And, should you acquire a tan, it jf.
will encourage a lovely, even effect, keeping ^

the skin is kept soft and pliable— and this
Ingram's does with marvelous effect.

corners of the lips, tone the skin and keep
the muscles firm by using Ingram's. It is

if you value your youth. Ingram's, with
its trace of medication, keeps it lovely,
smooth and rounded and without a trace
of flabbiness.

The Neck . . Finely etched, circular lines are
signs of accumulating birthdays. Be faith-
ful to your use of Milkweed Cream. It
wafts well-established lines to obscurity
and guards against new ones.

proudly wear evening gowns or sleeveless
dresses should cleanse her arms and
shoulders and keep them blemish-free
with Ingram's.

ALTHOUGH he left his company
maimers at home, Karl Dane
was the sensation of Indianapolis
during his location jaunt to that
city. WilUam Haines, Anita Page
and other members of the M.-G.-M.
"Speedway" company took a back
seat. It was a rush from one soirSe
to another. Dane and John Miljan
dropped in at the home of an Indi-

to another party.

Dane looked around and couldn't
see much whoopee in progress.
Turning to Miljan he remarked in a

gushed the admiring hostess.

ticated as they are, they have never quite

suspected of trying to take Joan's glory.

from his father, with payment to cease when

The statement that young Doug would re-
