TUT, HliOOKLYN DATIA EAC.LE. NEW YORK, MONDAY, JUNE 11, 1028. The New Photoplays Comment of Events on Stage and Screen 14 A The Cinema Circuit B MARTIN ' Fields and Conklin in "Fooh for Luck" at the Paramount "Tenderloin" at Brooklyn Strand; A New Film at the Roxy. THE droll W. C. Fields Is teamed with the no less amusing Chester Conklin in an Inconsequential comedy called "Fools for Luck" at the Paramount Theater this week. The former Is cast In the role of a wildcat oil promoter, while the walrus moustached one appears as a small town man of moderate means who Is destined to be parted from his savings by the glib exhortations of the big oil and gas man from the city. But despite the promise of forthcoming hilarity which the names of the stars and the outline of the story "J contain, the picture never manages to become anything more than mildly (almost indiscernibly) amusing. To be perfectly honest about it, the story all but ceases to move after the first two reels, which leaves the remaining chapters of "Fools for Luck" to the mercy of a succession of fourth-rate gags. One of these calls for Conklin to appear at a ball In a hastily basted dress suit, which, you may be sure, parts company with its basting stitches at a most Inopportune moment. This Incident, you may be equally certain, caused the please-easles at the Paramount no end of merriment yesterday afternoon. Another uproarious(T) moment -occurs when Mr. Conklin. unaware that his bed Is being occupied by Mr. Fields, prepares to retire for the night, although not before he has demonstrated his husbandly affections to the sleeping partner, who he supposes to be his wife. This episode, oddly enough, also threatened to disrupt the Calm of yesterday's assembly. You will realize the obviousness of It all when It is told that the fake oil well actually turns out to be a gusher... as if any zany had doubted for a moment that It would. This, Incidentally, helps to culminate the thin little love story of which Jack Luden and Sally Blane are the immediate, If totally unimportant, principals. The revue is called "Xylophonia" and you ought to know what that Indicates. Brooklyn Strand. BROOKLYN STRAND THEATER "Tenderloin," a Warner Brothers production with Vitaphone accompaniment and dialogue, featuring Dolores Coitello and Conrad Nagel. Also "Eight Belli," a stage revue. ' Prompted, perhaps, by the success of "The Jazi Singer" and Its Vita-phonle effects, the Brooklyn Strand Theater Is currently offering another of the Warner Brothers' talking (so-called) photodramas. This time It Is "Tenderloin," whloh, as Its title suggests, is a melodrama of the underworld. Here Is a story which follows the most familiar channels of the law-, less and orderless sometimes naive and mora frequently absurd narrative of a gangster's lady who learns the Inevitable lesson that, believe it or tot, "crooks can't win." How this tnoral la driven home Is hardly worth recounting, since much the same sermon has been preached upon countless occasions from the movies' ringing pulpit. Is all comes out happily and thoroughly purified fn the end, a climax which is. brought about through the) magnified yoke of the Vitaphone. It is during these climactic moments that the harassed heroine (Dolores CosteHo) and the good-bad hero (Conrad Nagel) are permitted to express themselves In platitudes that are not intrusted to the mere printed caption, but are flung out from tha screen upon a wave length that Is guaranteed to reach the farthest corners of the playhouse. The volume of the dialogue is, in fact, not to be denied, but It is the absurd nature of the lines which must Inevitably lessen their effect upon the audience. In "Tenderloin" you will find an excellent illustration of the value oi sound synchronization to the silent drama. You will discover, for example, that in so far as technical perfection is concerned, the presentation at the Strand is something of an achievement. The fault lies, unfortunately, in the fact that the talking movie (at least in "Tenderloin") has not yet found anything of much importance to talk about. The current stage revue at the Strand is "Eight Bells," a nautical escapade of more tnan a tew pleas ant moments. The personable Ray Teal returns here to his duties of Jannings in "Tartuffe" Emil Jannings in "Tartuffe, the Hypocrite," a German screen production based on the famous play by Moliere, is the current attraction at the St. George Playhouse. In this the great Jannings adds another Impressive characterization to his already formidable list of performances before the camera. The star portrays the title character of the French dramatist's memorable play, a selfish, repulsive and generally disagreeable figure who is justly exposed and denounced in the end. "Tartuffe" is a Ufa production, directed by the clever F. W. Murnau, who. more recently, was responsble "for that most startling picture of the year, "Sunrise." In support of Jannings are the equally celebrated German stars, Werner Kraus and Lil Dagover. As a supplementary feature the Intimate cinema in Pineapple st. is presenting "Slide, Kelly, Slide." one of William Haines' more stimulating comedies. Naturally, this has to do with the baseball diamond, and in between its more fictional moments the picture offers some exceedingly interesting glimpses of a number ol major league stars in their customary surroundings.

DICKSTEIN: Movie Daguerreotypes CONRAD VEIDT Coni'ad Veldt was born In Berlin, Germany, in 1894. He was associated with Max Reinhardt, Ernst Lubitsch. Emil Jannings and Paul Lent in starfc and screen work abroad. He is famous as a Shakespearean actor on the stage of Europe. He made a name for himself as a screen actor in "Three Wax Works," directed by Paul Leni, who is now with Universal and who recently directed "The Man Who Laughs." Veidt was first seen in America as the star of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari." Other pictures which he made are "Love Is Blind," "The Living Mask," "Ivan the Terrible," and "The Student of Prague." Another picture' which has been released in Berlin since his departure to America is "The Flight in the Night." This, as well as the "Student of Prague" and one of his later pictures, "The Memoirs of Manolescu," are to be shown during the next few months in his counry. Conrad Veidt came to America at the Invitation of John Barrymore to take a part in "The Beloved Rogue." Before he had finished making this picture Universal signed him to a five years' contract. He returned to Germany and brought his wife, Felicltas, and child, Viola Vera, back with him. His first role under his contract with Universal was in "A Man's Past." He has the leading part In Victor Hugo's "The Man Who Laughs," now at the Central Theater.

THANKS THANX- & THANQIES. "After your trouble with the Ron-konkoma realtor," writes Frank B. Mc, "why not rent my bungalow on Bedford ave., which is on the same block with a lady columnist Marguerite Mooers Marshall. That Is, if you pass the strict censorship and continue to live as the rest of the inhabitants do. The owner of the bungalow is held responsible for the tenant, and, if you intend holding all-night sessions over there, please go to desolate Ronkonkoma. Don't get me wrong, Rian. I approve of your conduct and would gladly drink cne each time you do, but not in my bungalow. Probably a summer away from temptation would be worth $450 to you. What is the answer? P. S. Please furnish references, which will be strictly investigated." Well, Frank, your letter Is certainly inviting. In fact, on rereading It we've come to the conclusion that, quiet boy that we are, we'd have a whole lot sweller time at Dannemore. Not that we object to having our references strictly investigated. Not at all. For a $450 rental we're just a little bit surprised that you didn't ask to see our birth certificate, our army dis charge and this Department s Mother s Marriage license. And then there's that clause in your letter about behaving as the other inhabitants do. We couldn't promise. Why, Frank, their behavior might be positively shocking, and think what we'd be exposing ourselves to! But if we rpspnr. nnvthinc In rnur letter at all, Frank, It's your complete understanding and patience with that ririnlrinrr thincr Mauhn vrtn'va pans. seen a columnist who had an affection ior pinic ones actually drinking one of the things without tearing down the chandelier nnri frvinir thp hruicp cat. Honestly, we've never busted a mirror, snnenea out loua, Ditten a blonde in the shoulder or broken furniture as a result of imbibing pink ones. Also, believe it or not, pink ones are actually an avocation with us rather, than a vocation, Your description of the bungalow sounds grand, but honest, Frank, we'd hate to have to agree to permit you to come around sniffing our breath at stated intervals. Even eolumnists are touchy about things like that. Nor do we think that summering at your bungalow would be summering away from all temptation, as you seem to suspect. If you'll recall, the wise folk down at Washington who get paid for keeping all good little Americans away from Temptation passed the Dry Law Just to keep weak-willed folks out of trouble... and see what happened! Your suggestion that we'd have tn niu n strict censorship in order to rent your outfit tickles us right down to ths final vertebrae.

But Axel L. Elmqulst has done Just thai, although still on the sunny side or DO years. Mr. Elmqulst, who has been buyei for the shoe department of Frederick Loeser & Co. for 15 months, was selected to assume the duties of a newly, created position, that of division merchandise manager for IB home furnishing departments. He assumed Ills new honors on Friday morning. He was selected largely because of his predilection for research, which had been developed In his college work and which he had applied to the Intensive study of merchandising principles. Looks Part of College Professor. Mr. Elmqulst looks the part of both a college professor and a successful business man, with the business element perhaps a bit in the ascendancy. He has gray hair that has not yet begun to thin, worn parted in the middle. His gray eyo3 look at his visitor directly and kindly. He wore a brown suit and harmoniously toned striped tic. He was immaculately groomed lrom top to toe. As he was Interrupted by various business calls his smile was ready for all comers, and quick, sure decisions were given to questions. His Phi Beta Kappa key testified to his scholastic honors. The college professor did not show until the conversation drifted to the reasons for his changing from educational fields, In which he had risen so high, to business, in which he started at the very bottom. In 1919 he decided to leave the educational work and take up business. He became a salesman for a shoe company in Chicago, giving up his professorship tn Northeastern University, also in Chicago, where he had been a member of the faculty for 13 years. Why He Chose Shoe Business. "Why did you choose the shoe business?" we asked. A quick smile flitted over Mr. Elm-quist's face as he said, "Well, I'll teil you. That was largely a matter of accident. A professor friend had a brother in the shoe business. One day he said to me, 'You have a practical turn or mind. Why don't you go into business?' I had not told him that I had already decided to do that, so I said, 'If your brother will give me a Job in his business' I'll take It." "I believe I would have been just as successful in some other line, for I believe that it is not having a J'alr for any one kind of business, but SLIM FIGURE CRAZE MENACE TO HEALTH, HUNTER DEAN SAYS Urges Girl Students to Shun Subways, Cigarettes, Late Hours to Improve Grades. By HOWARD C. BALDWIN. Brain fag, from burning the candle at both ends and the eternal feministic desire to retain schoolgirl figures, cause nine-tenths of the failures among college girls, accord-in? to Dean Adele Blldersee of Hunter College, Brooklyn Branch. Modem girls are not so up to date as it would appear on the surface, maintains Dean Blldersee. "Stilted" feet feet shod with tapering heels that fail to properly support them and subways go together, though the former can be avoided by walking, declared the speaker in an interview. "I hope the fashion for slim bodies will soon change," said the Dean, "so that mothers can again prevail upon their girls to eat nourishing food, cereals, vegetables and milk." Recently a student collapsed in her classroom and a physician diagnosed her case as "malnutrition," precipitated by her resolve to remain slender. Advises Against Smoking. Health is the first requisite for a successful college career, contends Dean Blldersee, and the girl who comes to college with that asset must preserve and conserve it. She must arrange ner work and piay so tnat she gets her proper sleep. Eight to nine hours sleep in every 24, with two hours preferably before midnight, is her prescription. The week-end is the time for social diver siondancing, theaters. Although she does not exactly oppose smoking, Dean Bildersee believes that as lor.-! as physicians vary as to whether this indulgence is injurious to feminine constitutions, the girls should avoid It. A subject of the Dean's criticism is the style of dress of young girls. Miss Blldesee and her hygiene teachers feel that the girls do not wear enough clothes to protect them In cold weather, and consequently catch colds and must remain at home. Brooklyn and L I.

' . . . and to spend no end of time listening to tho ones about the traveling salesman . . . thus twid dling our fingers for the remainder or tm dry , . and thoso are those I rather a knowledge of fundamental principles that help a man most." Mr. Elmqulst has a very definite theory about college men and business. "I had no business experience of any kind in my early davs," he laid. "If a man applies himself conscientiously he can succeed in almost any line if given the proper training. In modern business one of the outstanding things today Is the loundation ( t careful training. Man of scholarly trailing are going to play a large part in the business world of the future. Habits of work, habits of analysis and careful thinking, and the personality tnat can be developed tn educational work are the essentials for a business loundation." Reason for Leaving Educational Field. Mr. Elmqulst said that one of the reasons for his leaving the educational field was to be closer to the work of the world. "The change was primarily due to a feeling, for greater practical usefulness," he said. "Scholastic work demands training and the same training would be equally sure of success in the business world. Given common sense and personality any Job can be solved by concentration of effort. There is a bigger field in business. I felt outside of the world. College life is a beautiful world, but it makes one feel like a hermit.

His influence 13 Just as important and exerted Just as surely upon those brought under his jurisdiction as the professor in college." The conversation shifted to the j: resent relations of the public to professors and educators as a class. Mr. Elmqulst believes that the g?n be tween tne ecrucaiors and tne pumic is growing less.. "What seems to many of i us use a lessening oi respect ior eau-cators by the younger generation," he said. DR. LATHROP .GIVES BACCALAUREATE TO POLY GRADUSATES Deplores That Public Too Often Selects Politician to Be Nation's "Leading Man." The greatest need of the Nation and State today is the induction into the public service of trained engineers and scientists, in the opinion of the Rev. Dr. John Howland Lathrop, pastor of the Unitarian Church of the Saviour, Pierrcpont st. and Monroe pi., who delivered the baccalaureate sermon to the 1928 class of the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute yesterday morning in the Heights church. The faculty and students of the boro engineering school, led by Dr. Parke Rexford Kolbe, the president, occupied the main body of the church. After enumerating the qualifications which combine to make the trained engineer and scientist, Dr. Lathrop made a pressing reference to the fact that "we are on the verge of choosing a leading man for the highest office in the greatest country on earth." He deplored that the public too often selects politicians Instead of professional men ior important offices. Although Dr. Lathrop did not mention any of the Presidential candidates by name, many in the large congregation gained the Impression that he was stressing the qualifications which are possessed in the highest degree by no other Presidential aspirant than Secretary of Commerce Hoover. , Age of Experimentation. Today, he said, the greatest contribution any man- can make to his country is through his job. The controlling motive of the professions Is service to the community and not the motive of the commercial world, which is profit, he said. There was never an age like the present for experimentation in every field and ne added tnat tne potency 01 tne present lies in the Dersonalitles of those who possess It. 1 he speaker briefly discussed the home and said that "marriage Is a sacrament just so long as the sacramental element, love, Is there." He reierred to the question asked by the minister at the beginning of the nuptial ceremony, "Who grves this sirir iso one can. give a girl in marriage, the minister insisted, ex cept the girl herself. Dr. Lathrop conunuea: "We have built a city which adults cannot struggle through and where children play in dirty gutters. There Is an urgent need of men of your education engineers and scientists in a program of city planning. Then, too, we are on the verge of choosing a leading man for the highest office in the greatest country on earth." Dr. Lathrop concluded that "religious traditions have a very tenuous hold on the world today." The people of this generation, however, have strong spiritual ideals, he declared. BUGLE CALLS SAILORS TO NAVY. NIGHT SERVICE With the' naval bugle call to worship, the Hanson Hace Baptist Church, at S. oPrtland ave., held its Navy Night Servicss last night with the Rev. S. W.

"The Navy believes In Ond, manifesting His powers so strongly at seS, and rccotfhizes religion as a. mighty force," the Rev. Mr. Salisbury said. "We have learned In a more striking way since the war, the value of human life; we can get ships, wealth and cannon easily enough but, for the protection of lives of men, God forbid that there should be another war."
