The fatal spot is a color-film of a fashion show--perhaps very gratifying to those who like fash ions, but hard on those who think well of their eyes. De gustibus non disputandum est, which means that some people have heard about the lady who kissed the cow.

She has her troubles and her tears, but they are happy troubles, like roller-skating home from naughty men in wicked cabarets; and smiling tears like Irish tears should be. George K.
