The real cause is unknown that will rtop erosion. Most cases stop nat- uraly before serious injury is done. Sensitiveness of these areas will disappear after a time—from a few months to a year or more. The .pain may be reduced and generally entirely overcome if the dentist will rub the areas with a smooth instrument, such as a "beaver-tail burnisher."

New York and Hollywood) is not a star to measure a role's worth by Ihe celluloid footage it gols. If lie were, he would not lie playing Romeo ID Norma Shearer's Juliet. Rather extraordinarily, the reason he is doing Ihe film Homeo if the manner in which Scenarist Talbot Jennings, amputated the role. Trimmed it. perhaps, would be more accurate, for Howard conyiders that in the cutting Romeo has emerged a much stronger, more interesting character. Postponed "Hamlet" I'Yr weeks the actor, much wanted by Miss Shearer for the picture, was undecided. He had Shakespearean plans of hi.s own for the slai:e. hi.s own production of "Hamlet." When he read the script, however, he postponed his Broadway product ion. Now lie is intere.-ted in Homeo, for the rule itself as well as for its possibilities as a "load in" for a Howard "Hamlet." He ha snever "done" any Shakespeare before. "I would never consider doing Romeo oh the .staso," he explains. "Rarely have actors been outstandingly successful in the role, because Romeo is not nearly so interesting a character a;- Juliet. Kyrle. Bellew was an exception. I understand, and currently in London John Gailgooil is being exceptionally well received. But I always have had the feeling that Shake? pcure war more interested in Juliet, that Romeo was just the necessary foil." No Time tc Be Boring n Jennings' film version, however. Romeo's long discourses upon love have boon largely eliminated. Another long—and good-scene thai came out if that between Romeo and Friar Lawrence, in which the young lover is twitted kindly by the monk. "I rattier regret thai." .-ays Howard, "for it is a very human scr.no-hut il is best omitted, for it docs not advance I he play. Because of the culling, the character gains. I think he will show up belter for it. He won't have time- to become boring!" Borneo in the latter part of the play appeals to Howard more. After he believes hi.s bride dead, the character becomes some.wh;-! "Hamlet- like" —much simpler, of einnvrr. "but that," says Howard, "is belter for pictures." Ag'; iy not stressed in the Shcarer- Howard version of the play. Traditionally in their 'teens.

Tin' fact is. however, that Joe Humphreys was called "the Beaut" because 1 ho was good-looking and possessed the best tenor voice in the Fourth Ward of New York's lower East Side. Joe the Beaut had the ccimplexon and skin of a girl and no other could sing "Maggie Murphy's Homo," "Paddle Your Own Canoe." and "As We Drink from Our Pint of Beer" quite well as he. He led all (|uartcts, and became quite a card at smoker:-.
