Figure We had an overflow crowd on Saturday for Miss Elsa Maxwell's lecture. Very gratifying. Wish there were twelve Miss Maxwell's. — Mrs. E. H. Bingham, Indianapolis Town Hall. She is a grand person and a 'natural' for the lecture platform.… We turned hundreds away. No one has ever pleased me more. — Katherine Wallin, Town Hall, Cleveland. MISS MAXWELL'S program was the biggest success that The Saint Louis Woman's Club has ever had. — Mrs. Henry S. Butler, President. ELSA MAXWELL did her stuff—and how! Toledo has had nothing to compare with it. One of the greatest personalities ever to visit our Town Hall platform. — Flora Ward Hineline, Director Toledo Town Hall. The dynamic Elsa has come and gone … a grand show to a packed house. — Kathleen Snow Stringer, Detroit Town Hall. A decided hit with our audience.— Employees Ass'n., Philadelphia Electric Co. MISS MAXWELL'S performance was a most satisfactory one, she furnished an out of the ordinary evening which thoroughly pleased a great audience. — Paul D. Carmicheal, The Arms Club, Washington, Pa. H.

With an incomparable talent for making friends, and keeping them, this small town girl from Keokuk is distinguished for her friendships with both princes and paupers, grand dukes, movie stars and captains of industry; for her dominating role in the social life on both sides of the Atlantic; and for her own authentic talent as pianist and composer. MISS MAXWELL is entertaining and stimulating because she is not afraid to tell the truth about people. More people know about her, and perhaps less about her than any other celebrity in the world. Miss Maxwell has given more parties than any single person since the Roman days; at these parties big business rubbed shoulders with Royalty and the members of America's oldest families cavorted with stars. Parties are out for the duration, however, as Miss Maxwell feels that she will have no heart for them until the War is over, and that only such parties should be given as would benefit war causes. A lady of thoughtful temper and searching intellect, Miss Maxwell has, according to Etude, a keen wit, and an instinct for reaching down to the root-causes of things and bringing up startling truth. ELSA MAXWELL is a dynamic and imaginative personality on the lecture platform. Following a recent public lecture in the large auditorium in Des Moines, Iowa, Mrs. Helen Perkins, secretary of the department of Women's Affairs of the Chamber of Commerce wrote: She was more serious than any thought she'd be … well, in fact, she was grand. Her mannerisms, philosophy, anecdotes, opinions, and speech were in accord with the audience. She had the latter with her from the beginning. MISS MAXWELL starred in several motion pictures, is heard frequently over the air as a guest star on outstanding radio programs. She has published two books and her autobiography, entitled 'My Last Fifty Years' will appear late this season. Miss Maxwell also writes a syndicated column Elsa Maxwell's Particles in twenty papers with a circulation of over three million. She says that there is a laughter shortage in national defense, It is a matter of morale to be as happy as you can through it all. FOR TERMS AND DATES WRITE H. M.
