THE NORMAL STAR
3 to 10:30 P.M.
1 (FORMERLY NEW) JLj
CECIL B. DeMILL’S Production
All the crash and tingle of the vivid-
est melodrama! All the poignant heart-
tug of life’s supreme adventure of
love! All the gorgeous color that glows
through every picture made by Cecil B.
DeMille! All of this—and more!
For here is a story as novel as next
year’s style salon, yet throbbing with
age-old, primitive instincts that drive
every man and woman on to their fate.
The story of an heiress who wedded
her chauffeur, of a washerwoman’s
daughter who married a son of wealth
—of these four, thrown together and
facing a strange new world.
See the breath-stopping rescue over
the side of the railroad bridge! See the
terrible tenement fire! See the sensa-
tional bathing danc at New York’s Hal-
See Coney Island’s hosts at play and
the accident that shocked society! See
the fashion world’s pleasure and ro-
mance, the underworld’s stark realities!
See a mammoth entertainment that
gives a new meaning to Saturday Night!

It was in the wee-small hours of the
night. They had just returned from a
glorious night at the club, having
procured some home brew thereat. They
went up to their room, retired, and
soon fell asleep, before doing which
they almost fell off the bed and the
window due to the doubtful condition
they were in. But they could not sleep
very well, for in their troubled condi-
tion they fancied there were burglars
in the room. Every time the window
curtain blew against their heads, it
would awaken them. Whenever said
curtain flapped, a silver stream of pale
moonlight would enter the room on
noisless feet, but it seemed very loud
to the occupants of the room. Once
when the pale light from the moon shed
faintly upon the room, Harry fancied
he saw a large, terrible looking object
at the foot of the bed, and, reaching
with one arm over the side of the bed,
picked up his number twelve shoe, for
a great dimensions were his feet. With
his eye still upon the terrible object at
the foot of the bed, he summoned up
all his possible strength and courage,
and hurled the shoe at the afore-said-
mention object. When the shoe reached
its destination, great was the noise and
hollering thereof, for this is what his
room-mate heard him yell: “Ye gods
and cat fishes, I’ve knocked three of
my toes off!”

PALACE THEATRE OPENS
UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
however, a manager of a great chain
of hotels approached the producer with
the suggestion that Mr. DeMille open
a shop or series of shops in these hotels
in which might be sold the various ar-
ticles used in the DeMille pictures.
This request followed the visit of
the hotel manager to the Lasky studio
during the filming of “Saturday Night”,
the latest DeMille production, which
is coming to the Palace theatre to-
night, and in which Claire West, the
DeMille fashion designer is said to
surpass all her previous efforts for
