So man's life must climb From the clods of time Unto heavens sublime. Canst thou prophesy, thou little tree, What the glory of thy boushs shall be? He who plants a tree,— He plants peace. Under its green curtains jargons cease, Loaf and zephyr murmur soothingly, Shadows soft with sleep Down tired eyelids creep Balm of slumber deep, ' Never hast thou dreamed thou blessed tree, l Of the benedictions thou shall be.

Sharps and Flats A Department In Which The tailor of The Playi Hit Own Piano Star I saw the newspaper play, "Five Star Final," at the Saenger Tuesday night. 1 had looked forward to it because the author Is Louis Wettzenkofn, from my home town. It's the story of a scandaUmongering tabloid paper in New York. The editor is disgusted with Its hypocritical and venal owner, but stays with him until retribution overwhelms both and brands them as murderers. It is no secret I am revealing when I say that some of the recent portrayals of newspaper life on the motion picture screen have riled up newspaper folk. They resented—or said they did—pictures like "The Front Page" and "Sob Sister." And I suppose some of them will high-hat Louie Wcitzenkorn's piece simply because It treats of their sacred profession. I don't look at it that way. The press in Its day has thrown tomatoes and carrots at the stage and screen. It has "played up" the sensational side )f theatrical life. It has romped on awyers, doctors, and clergymen, each n their turn—and when somebody gets back at us, I think it's a fair shot; and that's all there is to it. I am suspicious of thin-skinned peo- ble, egocentries who imagine every flying stone was particularly heaved at them. This world is a give-and- take proposltlon-and a dog only Hot. lers when he's hit. I know exactly why Louis Weltzen- korn wrote "Five Star Final." He was literary editor of the old New York World. I talked with him the winter of 1921-22. The tabloids were just then creeping into existence. The Chicago Tribune people had launched their New York venture, the tabloid Dally News, about 1919 and it was eating up circulation alive, taking it away from the more respectable, standard-sized papers. A tabloid paper emphasizes pictures. Reading matter is cut to nihl, except on the "lead" story—usually a gory murder or a flaming scandal. I suppose that in 13 years the New York News, having achieved the largest circulation in America, feels sufficiently secure to "tone down" a bit—but now W. R. Hearst and Bernarr McFadden also have New York tabloids. Looking out of his high window in the old World building, Mr. Weit/en- korn saw a scramble for circulation, advertising, and wealth, in which the !.!.» ulQ **M>a«»vi»tro uiv gone Bolshevik, So he „.„ writing a play, and it w*g * eat. , They put the ptey in't —and here It is. What 1 found in "five Star final" that didn't appear in other newspaper films, was the constant hatred that the scandal-sheet editor professed lot his job, and his perpetual threat to go join "some decent paper." 'It is essentially a story of ffietropol* Itan journalism. You must remember that 900 American cities have but etoe newspaper apiece. Bui in the «rt»t cities there may be a down. In the struggle with each other they may compete harder for circulation th«n for true news and editorial service. This is Weitzenkorn's theme. He is damning newspaper men Who, like some doctors and some lawyers, work for a fee rather than the true practice of their profession. Weitzenkorn's "tab" editor, for instance, dug up a 20-year-old murder story and involved the woman's innocent grown daughter, solely to serve his lurid pages.

He said that in this book would be found—not what every young girl is told before marriage—but what she will find it indispensable to know. Thousands sent their mail-orders. Then—complaints began to pour in. Finally an outraged man brought the bookseller into court. He stated that he had sent for one of these compendia of indispensable information ... and that he received by mail a 19th Century Cook-book—"Lazy Little Lula Learns Cookery." He wanted the bookseller found guilty of obtaining money under false pretenses. ... But the judge acquitted him, saying that he was in thorough accord with the bookseller's view that a knowledge of cooking was of primary importance to the prospective bride. The modern newspaper could be advertised truthfully in very much the same way. The most indispensable knowledge to a young wife is knowing where and what to buy ... how to get the most for her money , . . how—on a limited budget—to keep her home fresh, new, attractive . .. how to dress herself and her children, inexpensively yet in the very latest style . . t how to serve on her table foods of the most dependable quality. In othr words—the advertising that appears every clay in your local newspaper contains information of real value ,.. news! An- nouncements of the latest and best in the shopping world. This is indispensable information to every woman, especially to those with families. It helps them run their homes successfully. Surely that is what every woman must know. » "IMPORTANT: When you ask for a product by name as a result of advertising, do not accept a substitute—substitutes are offered not as a service to you, but for other reasons." +&$ :*'« -,uj *>•' ;.
