ROCKEFELLER IS EIGHTY YEARS OLD Uy tin* AxxiM'tjit»*t1 Ureas TARRYTOWN, N. Y., July 8.-John D. Rockefeller celebrated his eightieth birthday at his Poncantico Hills estate yesterday, so he could depart for Seal Harbor, Maine, today. He is eighty years old today. Th** guests at his party included ; Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., their children and about one 1 hundred friends, Monroe Salisbury Today. Spectacular snow scenes revolving around a thrilling toboggan accident on a steep hillside, in which one of the principals really was hady bruised, are a feature of “The Blinding Trail,” the new' Monroe Salisbury film play coming to the American today. Paul Powell directed the picture which deals with the Northwoods and us people, among whom are Big Jim McKenzie, boss lumberman: his employer, Halverson, the million-air* lumber dealer; Halverson’s daughter. Helen, a city product in every luxury-loving essential; and th** latter’s “poor cousin.’’ The triangle formed by McKenzie and the two girls passes as another character, Jean DuBrey, impersonated by Arthur Maude, the eminent character actor, enters. It becomes a quadrangle with McKenzie, Helen, w'ho becomes his mis-mated wife; Ad d**, “the poor relation,” and DuBrey, the assistant camp boss; as the characters. The story written by Stuart Paton who produced “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” and John B. Clymer is an unusually powerful on** and the execution in such capable hands is praiseworthy. One of the most appealing screen fights ever witnessed is the climax of the play. In it Salisbury, as the blind McKenzie, Maude and Claire Anderson, the Helen Halverson of the story, participate and bring the plot to a smashingly logical culmination. Alfred Allen, the character actor; Johnnie Cooke, comedian, and others have strong parte in the picture. FL C. Wilson sold to Frank Year-gain one! lot in the College Addition.
