Miss Tallulah Blank head
Weds Actor John Emery
The speaker of the House of Rep
resentatives William B. Bankhead, va
cationing in Alabama attended a wed
ding in his family last week. He gave
in marriage his daughter, Tallulah
Bankhead, famous actress, to John
Emery, actor. Miss Bankhead, 35,
who has been on the stage since she
was 16, did not at first warm up New
Yorkers by her acting, so she went to
London, where for 8 years she was
the toast of the city. Back to Broad
way she drew long lines to the box
office. She and her husband will grace
Broadway this fall in "Antony and
Cleopatra." Miss Bankhead will play
the Egyptian Queen, and her husband
will take the role of Octavius Casear.
Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Jolly had as
the guests during the week Mr. and

Are Your Children
Ready For School?
September is the time for getting the
children ready for school. Their read
iness involves more than suitable
clothes, a new book-sack and a row
of shinny pencils. As essential as
these things are to a child's idea of
readiness, they are of minor impor-j
tance compared to his physical fitness
and mental well-being.
It is well known that a child's pro
gress in school, his mental and sicial
development and his ready adjust
ment to school and community life are
greatly influenced by the state of his
bodily health. If he is suffering from
such defects as bad teeth, diseased
ton. Is, adenoids, poor vision, im
paired hearing, or from conditions
brought about by improper diet and
faulty health habits, he will be placed
at a disadvantage with his compan
ions. The odds will be against him
in any race.
It is, therefore, of the greatest im
portance that a child be started to
school right, free of all physical hand
icaps and in a healthful state of mind.
Parents are urged to use these days
prior to the opening of school in
September in which to make sure that
their children are in as good health
as possible, and thus ready to enter
school. To do this most satisfactorily,
a trip to the dentist and a check up
by the family physician are advised.
