THIS FLIVVER WAS
A NAMELESS JOKE
Unaccustomed to flattery, but equally
used to ordinary courtesy in her busi-
ness and social relations, Constance
Talmadge was astounded when, during
the filming of “The Primitive Lover”,
a stranger evidently of foreign extrac-
tion, approached her in the studio and
“Sefiorita, I greet you. You are won-
derful. You are the flivver of all ac-
Constance gulped and was about to
murmur an indignant denial when shg
happened to catch a twinkle in the eye
of Harrison Ford, her leading man.
She replied sweetly:
“It is too kind of you. I appreciate
your words and hope the public will
continue to think as highly of me.”
And afterwards Harrison Ford got it.
The idea of taking an innocent
stranger, unversed in the ways of a
country and telling him that a flivver
meant a “fast traveler” and was re-
garded as an extremely complimentary
It wasn’t Constance’s idea of a joke

best known and liked leading men in
the game—Harrison Ford and Kenneth
Harlan—playing with her in the cast

Freda Kessler is quite ill with pneu-
monia, developed from a severe case
of influenza. Mrs. Kessler arrived yes-
terday from Knippa, Texas. Although
in a rather serious condition, Miss
Kessler is some better than she was
and is expected to continue to improve
rapidly. Miss Woffard, of San Anto-
nio, is specializing the case.
Y. W. C. A. NOTES
The tea last Saturday afternoon for
Miss Emer Gency was quite a success.
Quite a number of pretty and appro-
priate gifts were presented, for use in
the rest-room. A most delightful pro-
gram was enjoyed. Miss Sallie Ross
Jones and Alberta Haygood each gave
two readings. Miss Emer Gency was
actually present. She told of the needs
of the rest-room, and Miss Budd, of
the University, gave a fine talk. Among
the guests present were Miss Budd,
Miss Guthrie, Miss Blanche Kefinedy
and Mrs. Lusk. Some of the gifts
were a Baby Ben clock, puff box, and
hair-receiver, a clothe-brush, pins, pens,
ink and some money to be used for
other necessities. Delightful refresh-
ments of tea and wafers were served
to those present.
After the tea Saturday afternoon, the
members of the cabinet of the Y. W. C.
A. went to the home of Miss Sallie
Ross Jones, where an informal social,
in honor of tMlisses Budd and Guthrie,
was enjoyed by the members of the
cabinet. After conversing, singing and
playing games for a good while, re-

wiches, potato chips, olives and oake
