Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1919, Lethbridge, Alberta The JJovie Vamp Usually Has Dark Hair and Eyes. "Some men act as if every girl were a vamp until she is proved innocent."

Is She a Real Menace or Just a Pretty Joke Why Is a Clinging Velvet Dress Under Suspicion? And Does "Vamp" Really Mean Anything as Dreadful as "Vampire" After All? "Six feet lall, her great, luminous, oriental eyes sbono from an olive-hued face of rare beauty. Men in legions were at her feet in all the capitals'of Europe." Was Cleopatra a Vampire? Here's a Motion Picture Vision ot 'cr That Suggests Picture to Kipling's Poem. "These men act as if all femininity occupied the yantage point in a, spider web." who were not so young, hail a way about them. No, according lo all this a vampire !s no special Eort of person; which doesn't help Women have had all sorts of tricks and a true Tamplre, I'm. sure, has to be tricky In a peculiar, snakey kind ot way. right close (o moJern limes there might be a suggestion.

There has lo ue that sinuous: can'i fnncy a fnt vamp. Hut It may be that vnmplng can be done on very moderate inches. It depends. Maybe It depends n good deal on dressing tal- ents. There's a. way o[ wearing loo much of Eomcliow conveys A vamp Im- pression. Velvet seems lo be under suspicion only when H Is worn In a certain way.

These men act as It nil femininity occupied the vonlage point In a spider web. And they act like a Oy fussing before he is really entangled. Him could Ihls be written of Harl unless ehe had mesmeric power? "Six feet tall, her great, luminous, orienlai eyes shone from aa olive- hued face ot rare beauty. Men In legions wcra at her feet in all the capitals of Europe and always after a dancing season she returned lo Berlin to pay a prolracled visit to her German friend." Alas! real vampires otlcn meel with a sad end. Vnmplre spies certainly have had hard luck when, they served the former Kaiser. Mme. Slorch, ac- cused ns a spy, died before anything could ba wrung from no ooe accaaed her captors. Ecores of Teutonic women eples bave rnysterfonsly died or disappeared. It mm called part of the Kaiser's system to sec that his women spies died they liad done n-hnl was waded of whether Ihey were captured or1 not. It sounds Ilka tbe Lucrello Borgia business, nnd maybe a slate of mind that could plan the ugliest kind of a spy system could plan death na a perfectly ethical Inci- dent. But wo arc not Wking about honcstto-good- nffs vampires, but rather of tho vamp, who Is shown In n variety of ways lo be different. Just what Ihe much the difterenco Is hard lo figure out. H may be a mailer of figure The-vamp doesn't really want to kill any one] She Is Just a Inntallilng shadow of vamplrlshnesi with lllc fire, having fun with Fate In a make-believe.

At tho .same time I'm bound to admit having beec (old thai vamps make a lot of trouble. But tlicn, that Eamo of thing has been gald b? millions of men since 31. Chrysoelom. ;
