The lure of the electric sign is r wonderful thing, and is evidence that the great American public carea only for the individual. Sometimes it seems that such a sign is the real magician, of whose marvels, many of our stars are made. It is t an essentiat element in : any contemplated leap into celebrity, and is a powerful argument that stars are made rather than born.

Some slip in because of physical beauty, or under cover of family traditions, or some other fluke, but seldom because the world at large has discovered any great gift.
