Even if you win that bet, you lose — my week's tips are on the minus side — outgo rather than income! Of course, if you make questions that are impossible for me to answer — such as, can I tell you how you can get Betty Bronson to write you a personal letter — I'm afraid it can't be done. But the only possible way is to write her one first, and ask for an answei. Betty has two brothers ; her mother is living, but I don't know whether her father is or not. If you go to Hollywood, there are no studios which will admit you as a visitor unless you know some one connected with the making of pictures who will take you inside. Crystal Gazer. — So Picture-Play is as indispensable as your toothbrush? I see you believe in cleanliness, even in your reading matter.

Any one interested may obtain further information from Miss Alice Reynolds, 601 Pearl Street, Bluefield, West Virginia. Alice Reynolds. — It really seems too bad to kill a handsome man, even in a movie, doesn't it? The one killed by Ricardo Cortez in "Argentine Love" was Marc Gonzales. M. M. S. — Richard Dix's real name is Pete Brimmer. As to the type of girl he likes best, I don't know that he prefers any special type. He has at various times been reported engaged to Lois Wilson, and is frequently seen with her at parties, so it is safe to assume that he likes her type, anyhow. Dick has never been married. For further information about him, see the answer to G. P. A., elsewhere in this department. Anonymous. — I've never even tried giving advice to the lovelorn. Stars don't make personal-appearance tours when they are busy working in pictures — a film appearance keep; them before a much greater percentage of the public at once. No, May McAvoy is not married. She has been reported engaged to Robert Agncw since the rumored engagement to Glenn Hunter. Glenn, according to report, may play the lead in the film version of "An American Tragedy." Robert Agnew's address is listed below. Leslie Fenton's new pictures are "Sandy," "The Shamrock Handicap," and "Dangers of a Great City." Slicums. — Do you really think the fans would kick you sky high because you don't like sheiks? If there are any fans who can kick that high, I should certainly like to know about it ! They'd be useful at a flying field to start the airplanes. I think perhaps the vogue for sheiks is dving out. Yes, Dorothy Sebastian played Polly in "Sackcloth and Scarlet," and Alice Terry was the older sister. Richard Talmadge isn't married. Jack Hoxie's wife is Marin Sais. I'll tell the editor you would like to see rotogravure pictures of Jack, Billie Dove, Warner Baxter, and Antonio Moreno. They will doubtless all appear from time to time. The Helen Ferguson Friendship Club wishes to announce its first birthday, with over three hundred members. They are conducting a contest with an evening dress as the prize. Dues, twenty-five cents.

Yes, Lila Lee still plays on the screen ; she appeared opposite Thomas Meighan in his recent picture, "The New Klondike." Johnny Hines was born in Golden, Colorado, July 25, 1895. He is five feet nine inches tall, weighs one hundred and fifty pounds, and has dark hair and brown eyes. Miss Saucy. — Your letter doesn't sound very saucy, but perhaps it's the way you look rather than the way you write. Prince Youcca Troubetzkoy was born in San Francisco while his parents were traveling in this country. He is about six feet one, and has blond hair. He is in his twenties. Edmund Burns was born in Philadelphia in 1897, and was educated there. He was in the brokerage business before he went on the stage.

William Boyd was born in Cambridge, Ohio — he doesn't say when. He is a blond, with blue eyes, is six feet one inch, and weighs one hundred and seventy pounds. Rough Rider. — Of course you didn't mean to say it, but what you said was that you love Western pictures and "never fail to miss one !" I certainly never fail to "miss" one when I can help it ! Josie Sedgwick doesn't give her age. She is five feet five inches, weighs one hundred and thirty pounds, and is a brunette, with dark-gray eyes. I don't know anything about Barbara Worth, but I suspect she took her name from Harold Bell Wright's heroine. Jack Hoxie was born in Oklahoma, and grew up on a .cattle ranch.
