Work of Great Writers
At Southern Pines.
Two famous writers, one a profes-
gor of literature at Columbia Univers
ity, the other a former newspaper
woman who has become one of the fa
mous writers of the screen, are re
sponsible for Lillian Gish’s latest
starring vehicle, “The Wind,^’ a dra
matic romance of the desert country,
coming to the Carolina Theatres, Fri
day and Saturday. The author is
Dorothy Scarborough, professor of
short story writing at Columbia Uni
versity. The book was one of the lit
erary sensations of a few seasons ago.
Miss Gish plays a delicately nurtured
Southern girl suddenly thrust into the
windstorms, the rigors, the hardships
and the elemental passions of the pio
neer life. She is supported by Lars
Hanson, the famous Swedish actor as
well as a sterling cast including Mon
tague Love, Dorothy Cummings, Ed
ward Earle, William Orlamond, Car-
mencita Johnson and others.
“The Orchid of the Screen”
Corrinne Griffith, the “orchid of the
screen,” w'ill appear on Wednesday
and Thursday in a role that is en
tirely different from those in which
she has been seen hitherto, when
"Outcast,” in which she stars, comes
to the Carolina Theatres. It is the
same powerful characterization that,
in the same plot on the stage, made
Elsie Ferguson famous behind the
footlights. Prominent in the support
ing roles are Edmund Lowe, Huntley
Gordon, Louise Fezenda, James Ford,
Kathryn Carver, Lee Moran and Sam
A Big College Picture.
At last a college picture with a
new, a different approach, has been
produced. At last the intriguing
round of college life in the United
States has been divorced from all the
fanfare and slapstick of former, so-
called college pictures which sickened
collegiates and non-collegiates alike.
At last Paramount has produced
“Varsity,” with Charles (Buddy)
Rogers ably handling a difficult role
and Mary Brian and Chester Conklin
furnishing support. “Varsity,” which
will be seen at the Carolina Theatres
Monday and Tuesday nights, pictures
college life as it is.
The scenes of “Varsity” were actu
ally taken on the campus of Ptince-
ton University and w'ere supervised
in the making by a committee from
the faculty of the University. The
picture is splendidly conceived, ably
directed and competently acted, a true
and living; protrait of contemporary
American college life.

New York Laboratory by which the

The Kiwanis Club held its Wednes
day meeting at the Carolina in Pine
hurst, which has opened for business
in its remodeled form. The attend
ance was- large, as many members
who have been away during the sum
mer are drifting back. At the close of
an excellent feed Dr. T. A. Cheatham
talked to the club on modern progress,
and he interested his hearers to the
finish. He has been North much of
the summer and he compared the cli
mate and surroundings of the North
Carolina Sandhills with thte more ro
bust country in the snow belt, and
said he was glad he lived in this re
gion where it is good to be. He also
welcomed himself back to the crowd
of good fellows he found in the club
and commended the good the bunch is
doing in many ways. And then he
proceeded to set them a further job
by talking of the progress the world
is making and its need of men to help
that progress in the right lines. Mr.
Cheatham says we are living in an
amazing day, with progress going so
swiftly we can scarcely comprehend
its meaning. The automobile, the fly
ing machine, the radio, the many new
things that revolutionize our customs
are sweeping us off of our feet, and
changing our habits and ways. The
radio is substituting for the preacher,
and without the contribution box at
the end of the seormon. The constant
reconstruction and change are mov
ing so fast that we have not suffi
cient time to enjoy the old peace and
comfort of the past, and it is neces
sary that this progress be controlled
and directed in the right direction by
men of .public interest who will give
of their time to it. We must have
citizenship with thought for all these
modern problems Three things are
to be held in mind—the immense ca
pacity of this country now for skill
ful work and intelligence, the high
quality that make men willing to serve
in the moral capacity to use the in
telligence, and the improvement in
organizing power. These rightly
used will keep us up with the modern
progress no matter how' swift its
gait, and make us a wonderful peo
Frank Buchan, of the committee on
airports, reported that so far Pine
hurst had carried the chief burden of
what has been done, and he urged that
every section R;et into this game and
not leave one place to assume the big
costs, while sharing the advantages
with the others. He felt that the
other communities would be in line,
but he thought they should come
quickly as a demand exists for a use
of the field now so far along that it
can quickly be made ready for opera
tion, and he voiced the belief that
the money will be forthcoming soon.
Herbert Seawell, Republican candi
date for Governor, who has been ab
sent for several weeks by sickness
and campaign work, was back at the
meeting and warmly welcomed by his
