Melting snow and ice and possibly a strong wind Monday msht combined to cause the collapse of the roof of the building occupied by J. E. Keating s drug store here during the night.

Myrna, you know, has been able to make successful careers of both marriage and her picture work. So we wrote to her and asked her to state her views on the old question of "how to be happy though married."

"IT OLLYWOOD is a fertile field for making a crop of mistakes," writes Myrna. "I discovered that through years of motion pictures. The first mistake I made was to let myself be typed, which happened to me in earlier years when I played the adventures with a great deal of constancy. It was fun. but utterly false. But the funniest part of it was thit I was so thoroughly Occidental that I had never been out of my native West. Hollywood has also seen mistakes in love. Love Is selfish, but it is forgiveable selfishness. It has created more happiness and more misery than anything else in the world, and to be happy in it. we hiust he sure cf it. To be miserable in it l means that it is the greatest mistake 1 in the span of a life. This mistake is often made in Hollywood. Marriage is a fine thing if you can make a success of it, but to do this is to leain the value of compromise.

Tallu'.ah Bankhead is now ECheduled to play the feminine lead in the Shuberts" musical version of "By Candlelight." In the original play, adapted by P. G. Wodehouse from the German of Siegfried Geyer, Gilbert Miller starred Gertrude Lawrence, with Leslie Howard and Peginald Owen in the supporting cast. 1 That was in 1029. When the show tame to Detroit in 1930 the leading j parts were in the hands of Donald ("Merry Widow") Brian and Edith Talliaferro. ; THOUGH Katharine Hepburn won't be acting "Jane Eyre" for the New York Theatre Guild this season, that management has her under contract for next year. . A great season for plays on religious themes ("Father Malachy's Miracle," "Many Mansions," "Shadow and Substance." "Susan and God") and now Dennis Doncghue has v ritten "Demi-God." dealing with the Father Divine movement. . .

Dwarfs.' in Los Angeles a cf the Walt Disney feature "Snow White and the Seven OPEAKING or "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," theatre managers in many American cities are up in arms because the RKO film exchanges demand a 50 per cent, split on what the full-length Technicolor cartoon grosses at the box office. Besides that, the film people insist that the exhibitors charge children full adult prices to see the show. '"PHIS is especially true of profes-sional women who are apt to be fDoiled bv Dublic adulation. So much attention is paid to them that they are in danger of becoming ingrown Actresses must devote so much time to themselves, or think they have to. that in being constantly engrossed in themselves, thev forpct others. "I believe the tendency of actresses to be spoiled has gone so far that an rdiustnient is necessary. Women in other professional lines adjust themselves to interests outside their work. even to marriage, so wny snoiuan v we? In marriage, a wife is a wife, no matter what her work may be. From what little I have seen, the actress has so little time to play and so much work to do in Hollywood that she is sot to carry her work into her private life. It is a treat mistake for profes sional people to take the studio home writh them. "It is a mistake for the married eatress to have her hair dressed at nieht and to go home done up in pins tnd looking like a porcupine. A husband does not want to gaze upon a fright sitting opposite him at ' the dinner table. These, and others, may appear to be tiny mistakes, but collectively, thev breed misery. A little thoueht and tolerance will aid in avoiding them." Officers Returned At Erieau Church ERIEAU. Jan. 26.

XVE'VE HAD a lot of news about that bis heart that Jane Withers has. Today we've more about her kindliness, and dog poisoners operating in Westwood and Santa Monica canyon had better look out now. Jane has organized 40 kids of the district into a band of juvenile detectives Ewom to stop the slaughter of pets. Situation was so bad that 11 doRS were killed in two weeks. Odd part of it is that the police are seriously working on two clues turned in by the youngsters. Parents of Jane allowed her to oifer a S50 reward to any kid who turned in the poisoner ... By this time Kev Luke, the Chinese actor, must be a discouraged man. As you know, he plays Warner Oland's son in the Charlie Chan series. Well, m preparation for "Charlie Chan At the Opera." he took voice lessons for weeks, because they told him he would have to lead the chorus. But when the picture came out. his singing was just the briefest of flashes . . . Then came "Charlie Chan at the Olympics," and Luke was supposed to be a swimming champion, so he practiced for four months, difficult strokes, which would look convincing before the camera. The closest he came to swimming in the picture was one shot of him climbing out of a pool . . . The final blow was "Charlie Chan at the Ringside." The Oriental actor practiced boxing for weeks . . . and they decided to cut these scenes out of the film! s c cat cc a JUST ABOUT in DESPAIR with SHARP PAIN OF If you are Buffering from the eharp piercing pain in hip and thigh of sciatica, read what T-R-C's did for Mrs. E; Wilkins, Benton Station, Alta; She wa laid up with an extremely painful attack: "Nothing seemed to do me any Rood," ehe writes.
