BY DAN' THOMAS NKA Srrvicc \Vvitcr HOLLVWOOD.—Amoni! the list of Hollywood's most plentiful com- niCKllllcs one finds blonds given n high rating. At the same time, however, one finds natural blonds about as scarce as those $1000-a- weck jobs you hear so much about —but never find. Frances Diide comes under the heading of "scarcities," she being one of the few naliirtd blonds In the cinema village. Perhaps thai Is the reason for her success. Frances never has done anything startling, but she has worked pretty steadily dining the last year, not in any great good roles thai experience'(hat is essential• whcu one dots get that big break. Her natural blond hnir hn't the only thing that Is pulling young .Miss Dade across, ll)ouj;h. Her absolute naturalness Is playing- quite a vital part. We have known Frances for (julle a \vliile-cver since she left the New York stage to come out here and play In "Raffles" with Ronald Column. parts but always in H nnvc given her the Unlike innny of our film celebrl- es, 1 the Frances of the screen and the real Frances arc identical. H is np secret that.many fans have been disai>po!nled when they have teen fortunate enough to see tholr fa- voriic screen stars in the flesh. Such • would not be the case w this young blond, however. In her living room on the scrcra she ap- ixars just as she does in the living room of the little bungalow which she shares .with a girl friend. And when slie ktsses the hero In Ihe picture, she does su just as she kisses her own particular boy friend. Frances is a strange combination of flapper and old-fashioned girl. She never Is too tired to go out dancing and often is seen in Hollywood's most i»]Hilar night clubs. She filso goes In cinllc heavily for swimming and tennis. But with It all she has a pronounced domestic streak, being able to cook in a manner that makes a fellow pass his plate for seconds. When Frances came out here she signed a year's contract with Samuel Goldwyn. Tlie year was up a lew days ago and she isn't renewing the agreement. During the year she has made but one picture for Goldwyn, having been loaned to other studios for all of her othsr pictures. And now she has decided that as long as she is going to work on "foreign" lots she might as well collect the extra revenue herself. All of which Isn't a bad idea, particularly in view of the fact that she seems to be pretty much In demand these days. Personally, however, we don't think Frances will free lance very long. Son* studio executive w'il! get her name on the dotted line before many weeks have passed. , . . . , have returned from Memphis where they spent two days with relatives. Mr. Stewart drove down Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Potter will spend the last of the week • in Memphis.

Just at this time of year when .ppetitcs need tempting, a fruit ir vegetable combination bftcn can '0 served to precede or wholly re>lace the soup course. These so-called "cocktails" serve two-fold purpose in that they act us appetizers as well as adding color nnd elaboration to otherwise imple meals. There Is one precaution to keep n mind—do not repeat (he flavor of the cocktail in some other course 1 . The general rule for scrv- ng cold foods thoroughly chilled should be observed and the cocktail be left on Ice until the last nlnute. Do not let a fruit cocktail be too sweet lest it dcfcM Its own end and cloy rather than whet the appetite. Very often left-overs can bo June used mos'. satisfactorily and attractively. The portions for serving arc quite small, four tablespoonfuls being enough for each person, so a few tablespoonfuls of several materials used in combination will make enough cocktail to serve a number of persons. In making fruit cocktails It's well to Include one bland fruit in combination with-two or more tart ones. A dash of lemon juice improves all cocktails, fruit and vegetable. Fruit cocktails gain much if mixed and placed on Ice in a covered glass jar for at least four hours before serving. The llavor blends, then, into a delightful, mellow whole. Fresh pineapple cocktail is particularly good as a starter for a fish dinner. Mini and orange suggest roast lamb or veal, but any piquant, well-chilled cocktail, be it vegetable or fruit, will prove acceptable preceding any menu. 3 tablespoons sugar. 2 tablespoons blanched ami shredded almonds, l tablespoon lemon juice. Cut fruit in neat rtlce. Sprinkle with sugar and let stand on Ice over night. One hour before serving add almonds and lemon Juice. Serve in chilled glasses using the juice as well as the fruit. This rule will serve four to six persons. and Carrot Cocktail Three-fourths cup finely shredded cabbage, 1-2 cup grated carrots, 1-4 cup minced celery, 1-3 tea-| spoon salt, 2 tablespoons lemon' juice. 1 Let cabbage stand for oiic hour; In ice water which more than covers. Dry between towels. Add! carrot, .celery, salt and lemon f juice. Lift with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Chill well and serve garnished with threads of green pepper. « V • Dally Menu BREAKFAST— Graiw fruit juice, cereal cooked with raisins, cream, crisp toast, milk, codec.
