Brownskin Envy Of World Says Hollywood Expert Hollywood, Cal., Dec. 14.— Every so often Hollywood has amazingly lucid moments. “I predict that by 1940 sun tan skin will be the rule rather than tho exception, was a remark made recently by Jack Dawn, head of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer make up department. Going over a series of photo graphs of dark skinned women, Dawn mused further that in a few years hence society will find little room for what is now known as the “hothouse flower.” •Women have never fully real ized how becoming sun-tan com plexions can be. They are as flat tering to blondes as they are to brunettes,” he continued, evident ly unaware that he was describ ing most vividly the natural sun tan of colored women. “The sun-tan complexions might well be the envy of the feminine population of the rest of the world” was the final opinion of filmland’s most expert maker upper. . . _Fa._il_ INO less t&ri auuiviiKj mu*m ert Edmond Jones, leading New York stage designer, who arrived here as a color designer for Pio neer Pictures is responsible for tho statement that in the not-so distant future the entire product of the industry will be done in color. Jones, acknowledged master craftsman of light, shadow and color, declared that in addition to more than a hundred short sub jects, 12 full length features are scheduled to be produced in color during the coming season. Black and white pictures will be as old fashioned as silent pictures are today. Elaborate experiments with R new secret color photography are being conducted at Paramount studios. New pigments for the manufacture of paints used on i sets have been purchased. The study of lighting and its relation ship to the amount of makeup necessary on the players has j begun. It, is neither facetious nor far fetched to predict that colored j performers in motion pi'tu es hRve only begun to invade the j industry with their talent and their type. Not so long ago, it was not un common for white extra players to work under cork, or very dark mnkeup. It was discovered that Negro players not only performed as well but were less expense fo” having the makeup naturally.

No one likes to be called dirty face. In this article we are going to help you get rid of blackheads. Whatever cleansing method you may have been using in the past, if It has not rid your face of blackheads, then the method is all wrong. There are still a few women who cling to the old soap and wa ter method of cleansing the face. These women are the women who, at an early age show wrinkles. Soap has a tendency to dry up the natural oils in the skin. If you feel that you must use soap to properly cleanse your face—well do so. But use it sparingly, once or twice a week, followed first, by a good warm water rinse (never hot water) then a cold water rinse, always apply cream, to the face after using soap. Soap, however, removes only the surface dirt. To properly cleanse the face you should use a good face cream. A face cream that is penetrating and healing, one that smooths on easily, that does not have to be rubbed in and that melts the instant it touches the skin. Beware of creams that must be massage d into the skin. Too much massaging breaks down the fine delicate tissues and causes the muscles of the face to -sag. A good cream cleans the pores to the bottom so that they can breathe the fresh air which stimu- I l.it.r the circulation and keeps the skin alive and radiant. We have such a cream. It is (■ ’led th neach Bud ClcanHr.tr Cream. With this cream you need no astring ni to close the pores, neither do you need a vanishing cream or powder base. You will find that the powder clings per fectly to your face. By courtesy of Christine Al thouse Beauty Salon. Memphis Scouts Hear Education Chairman Memphis.

Ban Accomodations Ordinarily a definite agree ments is made with hotels be fore a convention site is adopt' ed, but at this year’s session in Montreal the group chose Washingon and appointed a committee to make all arrange ments with capital hotels. When this committee, of which T. Arnold llill was the Negro member, met with hotel repre sentatives it was told there would be no discrimination of any kind at the meetings of the conference, but no assurance could be given that Negroes would be either housed or fed in public dining rooms. It will cost the conference an estimated $10,000 to change emetings sites. Capital busi nesses, however, will lose many times that sum. As the Atlantic City social workers had not an ticipated any change, no plans Were laid for program and en tertainment of the visitisg del egates. The conference will be its own host.
