syncopators who were for-
merly. with one of the Al Jol-
son shows present several
pleasing numbers, being par-
ticularly pleasing in "I want
to be bad."
Takwah Chan, the- Chinese
boy, has the indefinable some-
thing which some like to call
"personality". The moment
he appears on the stage one
feels that he likes the boy and
naturally listens sympatheti-
cally. And to say the least,
the boy is GOOD. In both his
singing and banjo strumming
he is good, far beyond one's
fondest expectations.
We can therefore readily
account for the crowds that
have been attending and with
the much advertised and
splendid picture now showing
"The Duke Steps Out," those
attending the Friday and Sat-
urday shows, one who wants
to spend a real enjoyable af-
ternoon or evening need have
but very little doubt in his
mind as to where to travel.

men and of a siren is unfolded

staring Victor McLaglen,
which opens at the Capitol
Theatre, next week.
McLaglen, from his palmy
days of "What Price Glory?"
and "Loves of Carmen," is an
especial favorite locally. Fox
has provided him with an
ideal vehicle in "Captain
Lash." and a director, John
G. Blystone, who recently
produced the sensational suc-
cess, "Mother Knows Best"
from Edna Ferber's story.
"Captain Lash" teems with
exciting situations and with
moments of comedy provided
by McLaglen and his pal,
Cocky played by Clyde Cook.
Most of the scenes take
place aboard an ocean liner
plying between Sydney and
S Singapore, with MeLaglen
S one minute driving his stokers
at a furious pace and the next
making love to Claire Wind-
son, an adventuress. There is
a twist at the finish.

An ultra modern story

"Well, what are you doing
now?" I asked him, "Still
writing for C-?"
"Hell, no!" he answered,
"I've been in Paris for the last
year. I just came back two
months ago."
"I suppose you had a good
time over there," I suggested.
"A wonderful time!" he ex-
claimed, I'm sorry I can't
live over there permanently.
Those lovely little Parisian
girls! And the sophisticated
attitude of the whole people!
I'm getting so sick of this
damned Saxon prudery." And
he added:
"I could not tolerate it if it
were not for this-" showing
me his volume. "Rabelais is
the only man in all literature
with whom I think and feel
alike. Sometimes I believe
that I am really another Rab-
elais-born to tear down and
destroy the hypocrisies of this
big sausage factory I felt
like a prisoner as soon as I
landed again."
"But then there are com-
pensations," I protested. "Af-
ter all we are Americans, and
the land that reared us offers
some emotional and spiritual
balm for our discontent. I,
too, am disgusted with the
prudish and provincial atti-
tude of our people-but still,
I, who am French by blobd,
could never be more than a
friendly visitor in Paris."
Louis wavered my state-
ment aside.
"One does not have to be
French to be at home in Paris.
It is home to all intellectuals
and bon-vivants. Besides-,"
he added, "I am not an Amer-
ican; I am an International-
"An Internationalist?" I

At last a gleam of joy came
to his eyes.. Turning with
calm satisfaction he made a
motion as though to sweep
aside my entire argument.
'"Here," he said "is my so-
lution. Here is my cure---Ra-
belais-," and he added, "and
Nietzsche. I shall bury myself
away from the people and
scenes that aggravate me and,
with this work as my guide,

"acceptable" scribblers. I
shall call a spade a spade, and
I will puncture all the roman-
tic and sentimental gush

fy the souls of our country-
Somehow I could not pic-
ture Louis in the role of a
modern Rabelais. His finicky
mannerism and soft romantic
eyes belied his boast.
"But are you certain you
have the temperament to be-
come this gigantic interna'-
tional, social purgative as it
were," I asked doubtftlly.
But Louis hastened to as-
sure me. Still talking on the
same subject, he arose and
escorted me to the corner,
where we parted.
I called on Louis several
times during the next few
weeks. At every visit I was
regaled with interesting ex-
cerpts from the picaresque
master; and with some of
Louis' sketches in the same
manner. I had not the heart to
tell him that his own work
derived merit-if of a some-
what dubious nature only
through the fact that it was
an obvious and unconvincing
imitation of his master.
We always discussed life
and letters in a vein similar
to that of our first conversa-
tion in Washington Square.
Ever in the background were
sly and vague sophisticated
allusions to the various wo-
men who, it seemed, were in
the habit of visiting him.
he left me'for the avowed pur-
pose of meeting, and escorting
to his studio one of these de-
lectable and worldly creatures.
Never did I receive the slight-
est impression that might
lead me to spppose that this
youthful and modern Panurge
had the least romantic or sen-
timental 'illusions concerning
his various loves.
I was in a very ticklish pos-
ition at the time and badly
needed the assistance of a fel-
low sophisticate. My affair
with a young married lady
of Spanish extraction was at-
tracting the attention of her
husband's emotional relatives.
For some tim ewe had been
afraid to toeet at her home,

and wo had ne please to air bur

I plucked p.p courage tp A~ s
him a favor that I had grit-
ed to;i thrs on innumnirable
occasions-namely, the use of
his studio as a trysting place,
-when conenvient to him.
Louis did not answer at
once. Apparently he was
searching about for a good
reason to refuse; but none
forthcoming, he reluctantly
gave his consent. We arrang-
ed a date twice and then al-
tered it at his insistence. Or-
dinarily I would have dismiss-
ed the matter, but Louis'
manner annoyed me and I
determined to bring the mat-
ter to a conclusion. For the
third time I arranged a date
with some slight sarcasm in-
sisted that it should not be
agaib deferred.
On the appointed afternoon,
I went in company with my
little friend to Louis' place on
lower MaoDougall Stree. It
had been arranged that Louis
would leave his keys in the
letter box for which he had
already given me the neces-
sary combination: I inserted a
nail file in th elock as direct-
ed and opened the diminutive
door. Instead of the keys I
found this note:
"Please forgive me, but I
am unable to do otherwise. I
have only one sweetheart
whom I love dearly. She is so
sweet and so delicate that I
can not bkar the thought of
our lovenes being invaded by
Forgive me,

I turned the missive over in
my hand and began to laugh
loudly to the surprise of may
"Why, what's so funny,"
she asked wonderingly.
"Oh nothing much," I ans-
wered between gasps as I led
her out of the hallway, "K's
only a little message from a
terrible Rabelaisian."


Youth of the world, you are
with heart and brain
Strive for a new world bet-
ter than the old;
From myriad wrongs and
agonies untold;
To you we turn, let us not
turn in vain.
Too long have we sat silent
while our heart,
Full with the passion that
within us bums
To serve mankind, has
yearned as still it yearns
In your great venture greatly
to take part.
And yet there stirs in us an
age-old pride, .
A small but mighty" peo-
ple's pride or race;
Friendship, not favor, is in
the right we ask-
With aught save comrade-
ship unsatisfied.
Youth of the World, we ask

used to come together. It was
the first time within their
memory that Uncle Isi had
missed Shul, and at last, as
he neither appeared nor sent
a message, they concluded
that he must be seriously ill.
Benjamin's father accordingly
went to find out, and Benja-
min, who it must be confess-
ed was rather a selfish little
boy, and was quite unmoved
by the general anxiety, cried
for long-delayed gefullte fish..
He was very hungry, and the
tantalizing aroma spread from
the tiny kitchen over the two
cramped rooms that were
their home. But his mother
only scolded him, and kept
him walking from the kitchen
to the door to look out for
her husband's return. The
latter was away for long over
an hour. 'I can find no place
of Isi in his room,' he said
when he came back at last.
'Everything is as usual-only
his hat and his tallith are
not in their place. No one
knows where he is; the neigh-
bors saw him go to Shul, but
no one has seen him since.'
'Have you notified the
police?' asked his wife.
'Yes, and they are search-
ing the town. I fear there is
nothing more we can do to-
"There was sadness in the
home that evening, and an
atmosphere of gloom that,- no
matter how obtrusive their
poverty, had never before ob-
scured the glory of the Sab-
bath. The parents hardly tast-
ed any food, but Benjamin,
who was by now tearfully vo-
racious, devoured both his
own and his parents' share of
the gefulte fish.
"Early the next morning
the father went out to make
further inquiries. When he
came back he had a little par-
cel in his hand-it contained
Uncle Isi's hat and tallith, the
only relics left of him, that a
fisherman had found floating
in the river at night. Though
the police authorities were on
the lookout for the dead,man's
body, all search seemed fruit-
less, for every trace of it had

'the weekdays passed, and
in due course the family
found itself again on the
threshold of the Sabbath.
"Sudden death and tragedy,

us, but the wells of life atd

could no longer hope for the
presence .of,; their welcome
Sabbath guest, and though
there was still a heavy-depres-
sion over their minds, yet the
father found himself at the
fish-market as usual on Fri-
day's noon. The fishers had
just brought in the morning's
catch, and as he 'passed one
of the stalls, a great iridescent
salmon leaped from the nets
almost into his arms.
'I will take this one,' he
said, and paying for the fish
turned his steps homeward.
"His wife took the fish and
carried it into the kitchen.
She laid it on the board, and
as she raised her knife to de-
spatch it, a heart-rendering.
cry burst from its mouth and,
echoed through the house-
'Sh'ma Yisrael!"
"She screamed and dropped
the knife, while her husband,
who had also been startled by
the cry, ran into the kitchen,
'Wos is dos-" he exclaim-
"She was on the verge of
fainting, but pulled herself to-
gether so far as to point to
the salmon, which, through
having been so long out of
water, was now in the last
stages of exhaustion. Her hus-
band went closer to the fish
and looked at it.
"'Good God,' he said, 'it
was Isi's voice!'
"She nodded and wept si-
lently, rocking her body back-
wards and forwards.
"Her husband quickly filled
a basin with water and put
the fish into it, but it was too
late. The fish was dead.
"'I must go to the Ray at
once,' he said, and hurried to
get his hat.
