Twenty years ago, a bankrupt, today, the most widely popular author in America; 12,000,000 copies. of his novels in circulation; master of a great fortune ;owner of broad acres and sumptuous homes; his. .name a household word wherever books are read! That is a short history of Zane Grey, the undiputed monarch of all writers of Western stories, past or present, whose famous romance, "Riders of The Purple Sage," filmed by Fox with I George O'Brien featured, will • be shown to patrons of the Saenger Theatre (Saturday) today-. • Zane Grey in his early career, went through the customary experiences that Unrecognized genius must under. go. Born in Zanesville, Ohio, he at* tended the University of Pennsylvania Where he studied dentistry, and then came to New York to practice it. What a beginning for an author of dom- anccs! Eventually, however, he could stand looking down assorted gullets n6 longer. He chucked his forceps over the ferice, and began to bombard editors With verse and fiction, but they would have none of it, and he was artistically starving in a Delaware cottage, When he decided to go to Arizona, and join "Buffalo" Jones, last of the old plainsmen. This move changed his luck, wrote "Last Of The Plainsmen^' He and placed it. Then h6 came East and produced "The' Heritage Of The Desert." i From thdt moment on, it was kudos and ,coln unstinted from every [Jiece of work he: cared to set his hand to, till the name "Zane Grey" on the cover of a book would sell it Without ts'being o'penfed. • In spite of his rather pedestrain start as a dentist, Grey has lived the] adventurous life in the 6'pen Ke writes about with such unique power' and nterest. He has hunted, trailed and ridden-all over the West, roped rmoun- :ain lions with .his friend and precep- :or, Jones, and qualifies as a catcher par-excellence of sworctfish and'.other deep water itgers. .-' ' ' In "Riders .
