ARIUSEMENTS Sb ------Hi "WHAT EVERY WOMAN KNOWS" lie er William DeMille Smashes All Tradl tions in Filming This Picture. P1 William DeMille has broken motion picture traditions for perhaps the first time in the history of the screen, by making his latest Paramount produc- f tion exactly like the the original, with- la out change in theme, plot or charact- al era. This new picture is aft Im version a of Sir James M. Barrie's celebrated T play, "What Every Woman Knows," F and it will be shown at the Columbia L theatre Saturday and Sunday. r "This was done," says Mr. DeMille, b "not because it is always the best policy to do so, but because, in the case S of Mr. Barrie's play, it was possible r to follow absolutely the playwright's original and at the same time achieve a perfect screen production. In fact, in this instance, no changes could have been made which would have im proved the play for screen purposes. The fact that Sir James' play needed no changing whatever for screen pro du...

Page 404: "To abolish it (slavery) was to make the war for the Union < a lofty ideal in itself, still more ap pealing to the hearts of men and women in the North by enlarging it into a war for freedom." This is a bitter falsehood. The Emancination of slaves was purely a war measure. The North,was fighting for the pre servation of the Union and not for the destruction of slavery. Page 411: "The Alabama was at last caught and sunk." (An absolute falsehood). She was lying safe in a French harbor and voluntarily came out and challenged the Kearsage to combat. She was the inferior vessel and so was sunk. Page 414: "Jefferson Davis had threatened to carry the war into the heart of the North." (This is the third time this falsehood has been stated). Page 420: "Some of the Union Sol diers, on the march to the sea, need lessly pillaged residences and wreck ed public and private buildings, cre ating a very bitter feeling in the hearts of the Southern people."

TIfECITYl OF DER DREAMS (Sarah Turnbull Sterling.) "Come Lelie" called her lover, "we will go see Madame D'Orville. She hear one good time law was in Legis lature, an' is so happy an' young again with hope. My father say her hufand was put in the State Peni teditiary the day I was five year old, for tiventy-five years. Twenty year hav' passed in hope he come again so soon." So these young Creole lovers took hands in the gloaming and ran down the levee to sympathize with this poor wife who had waited so long for her lover's return. Madame D'Orville met them at the door-a woman whose years only numbered forty-three, but the pati ence of wating had laid its hand on her, and she was old. "Oh! Mamselle Lelie," she exclaim ed, "my Jim might come home pretty soon now, eh ? Dey will mak' one good time law in Legislature, den my Jim come back.

AUDUBON IN W. FELICIANA By Sarah Turnbull Stirlng. In ye ancient days of 1816--which are just a century past-and when West Feliciana parish, Louisiana, was at its lovliest with mystery of forest and fern laden ravine, the silver of creek bottom and the beautiful "red clay cuts," a wanderer came home, and as the hospitable doors in West Feliciana were always open and the hearth fires bright, he was made wel come and dwelt amongst them; and their children's children tell of the "Angel unawares." John James Audubon was born at Mandeville on the shores of Lake Pon chartrain, May 4th, 1780; his hun dred and forty third birthday being now at haid. From Mrs. Audubon's "Memoirs of her husband," kindly loaned me from the "Cottage" library, I found that John was the son of Commander Au dubon, who was the youngest but one r,f a family of twenty-seven, the chil drer, of a poor fisherman of Sable de Lorne in France. This worthy man was often seen with his wife and twenty-one children in church. ...

AUDUBON IN WEST FELICIANA. (Continued from page five) Audubon's star was then in the as cendant. He got many subscribers, dressed well, was feted and made hon orary member of societies and had a good time generally, which he en joyed with all his simple and boyish nature. But over the sea and far in the Louisiana hills, a little dark-hair ed and grey-eyed woman was working and waiting for him, so he ran away from it all to Manchester, to a place where she had played when a child and gathered wild-flowers and spars to bring her. On November 9th, 1827, the first book was published. One of the worst misfortunes that ever happened to man was that the publishing house burned and everyone one of his pic tures destroyed, and he had to come home and make them every one over. W, find him rt Rev John Bachman's in Charleston. (John and Victor both married the daughters of this gentle mc n). The years are slipping away, Au dubon is on the heights now, he has walked nearly over America, listened...

CENTENARY COLLEGE. Continued from Page Or.e. who were pround of this Old Pioneer that mothered the classics and kept the sacred torch of education alight until other institutions snatched it from her, do not allow this historic pile to fall into hideous and unsightly decay. This is a memorial of the old South, and its traditions that should ever be preserved. The history of Centenary is comingled and inter woven as warp and woof with the an nals of Louisiana. In 1844 the Con stitutigal Convention met on this site, but only held a session of ten days, and adjourned to meet in New Or leans, in 1845. During the Civil War a company of soldiers was organized from the student body of the school, and most of these gallant young lives were laid down in behalf of the State and the South they loved so well. In the rear, under the spreading branches of great beeches a Confederate grave yard nestles. The College was used as a hospital during the Civil War, and the wounded soldiers who died were...

LOUISIANA CLUBS ALEXANDRIA DIVISION. CLUB WOMEN IN ALEXANDRIA. Hotel Bentley was the scene of an interesting conclave of women on Tuesday afternoon, when the repre sentatives of the eleven Federated! Clubs of the city met to discuss ef fective methods of raising Alexan dria's pro rata of the endowment of the chair of the State President. Several years ago, it was realized that the office of President of the State Federation of Women's Clubs! could be filled by many gifted women, who would reflect great credit on the whole body if the financial burdens of the dignity were lifted from the pres ident's personal excheqt r. Hereto fore, the State President has been obliged to bear the expenses of herl tours of the State and her appear ance at important gatherings and in various cities herself. These expendi-1 tures limited the office to women of ample private means and caused many brilliant women, whose election was strongly desired by the Federation, to refuse the nomination. Moreover,,...

Communications i A COLLEGE FOR WOMEN. n The proposition advanced that the g Louisiana State University buildings t and grounds be devoted to the estab- c lishing of a woman's college when no p longer required for present purposes o is meeting with a unanimity of senti- o ment through this community as well 1 as elsewhere. Sound reasons are ad- I vanced by the proponents of the prop osition and none so far as we know are adverse to the plan. It is not proposed that coeducation be divorced from the Greater Agri cultural College but rather that the Woman's College be under the same management, a status not unlike that existing between Tulane and Sophie Newcomb. Many thoughtful persons believe that co-education does not give best 1 results, but whether this be a correct 1 view or not, a college especially for young ladies is advocated both for practical and sentimental reasons. Below we present the readers of Woman's Enterprise a communication on the subject matter and at the same time ...
