t»age Two THE PILOT, a Paper With Character, Vass, North Carolina. Fri..ay, November 9, 1&2& 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 Hardy. 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. Fox News Advanced Two Days. By special arrangement with the New York Laboratory by which the mid-week Fox News will be shipped via air mail, the Fox News will be shown in Southern Pines no Thurs day nights insteads of Saturday nights as heretofore, the same news being shown in Pinehurst on Fiday night. This advances the news in Southern Pines by two days over the previous schedule and will be a wel come change to those who like to keep up to the minute on the news of the day in pictures. Matinees at Southern Pines. Beginning Saturday, November 16, with Adolphe Menjou in “His Private Life,** the regjilar matinees for the winter season will be inaugurated. The matinee prices will be 40 cents for adults and 20 cents for children. The hour is 3 p. m. and matinee days will be Tuesday, Thursday and Satur day.

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 ple. 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 fellows.
