Despite that Gloria Swansan has
appeared in numerous motion pic

virtual discovery and in "Don't
Change Your Husband," Cecil B.
DeMille's new picture ' which is
showing at the Rialto theater, she
exhibits a screen beauty, a charm,
grace and talent that is almost, a
rarity in the ranks of filmdom.
Deliberately tear , a brand-new
coat to shreds? Thede Bara would
not hear of it.
While "When Men Desire," now
showing at the Sun, was in the mak

emerge from an explosion in a sadr
ly battered condition. To create a
realistic effect. Director J. Gordon
Edwards suggested that she tear
rents into her exquisite satin gown

past three years has been associated
with D. W Griffith as a title-writer
and research-worker, has taken
charge of this new department.

MISS MERILL of the "Mystic
Garden" company,, at the Em
press, is proud of the fact that
she was made mascot of the Thirty
third tank corps, formerly stationed
at Camp Dix, which included a
number of Omaha boys. The Mystic
Garden company presented its act at
various cantonments and Miss Mer
rill became a great favorite, espe
cially with "her boys of the 33d"
as she proudly calls them. She
was presented with a complete uni
form and taught all the ins and outs
of the tanks and is a genuine "Treat
'Em Rough" girl of Uncle Sam and

. The -sale of seats for the coming
engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Sidney
Dre in "Keep Her Smiling," at the
Boyd theater the first half of next
week beginning Monday night,
promises well for the engagement.
After the Drews long experience in
the "movie" picture world, it is per
haps necessary to emphasize that
"Keep Her Smiling" is not a pt
ture, but a speaking comedy in three
actS and four scenes in which the
Drews personally appear, supported
by a company of over 20 players. .

"Maytime" has but three more
performances to fill its engagement
at the Boyd, but these promise to
be most interesting. The play has
made itself very popular in Oma
ha, its dainty charm having some
thing of an appeal to all. .
Thus far this week standing room
has been a premium at the Or
pheum, where the bill ;s headlined
by the new song revue of Gus Ed
wards, '"The Fountain of Youth."
In addition to Olga Cook, the
charging prima donna, the act has
a number of gifted principals.- One
of them is Mario Villain, the Ne
apolitan tenor, whose Voice is of,
grand opera quality. Then there i
Helen Coyne, the solo dancer, whose
youth and dainty graces endear her
to every audience. Another feature
of. the current show is the come
dienne, Bessie Browning. Next
week Martin Beck presents the
American, dancer, Lucille Cayanagh.
" Harold Bell Wright has filmatiz
ed 'the most popular of the works
from his pen, "The Shepherd of the
Hills," The characters from "Preach
