So he gave her a part in a new picture. In order to lest the efiectiveness ol movie publicity, .Tanie is acting as tier own press agent. She had her first press conference the other day.

She's very light-lipped about tlie results of he:- publicity so far, and she won't reveal her plans for publicizing herself. Maybe she's afraid someone else will write a school paper on the, same subject.
