Eyes of Youth

1
Out of the East the wise men
  came. Out of the East
knowledge of the spiritual
has reached us. In the East
holy men spend their lives
in search for perfection.

2
On a pinnacle of the
 Himalaya mountains,
where the earth dream
reaches out to touch the 
stars, is ever kept burning the 
light of divine brotherhood.

3
Here are to be found
 those mysterious men
who live to give spiritual
aid to all who serve
  their brothers.

4
A disciple.
	Vincent Serrano.

5
"The time has come
  when we must go
 forth -- can there be
 peace when so many 
 suffer? Shall we be
 saved and hear the 
 whole world cry?"

6
"There will be no welcome
 for thee in the Western
 World -- thy ways will be
 strange - only as thou
 canst amuse canst thou
 hope to hold their interest
 -- so, take with thee
  this fakir's pack."

7
In the Western World
 where the eyes
of men have been
blinded to the things
of the spirit by the
cruel struggle for gold.

8
And in this struggle
  the souls of little 
children are forgotten,
until their thoughtless 
acts reflect its cruelty.

9
"Tie it on."

10
"Gee - he ain't got no tail."

11
Gina Ashling -- one whose eyes
  have not been blinded
by the material things ----

	Clara Kimball Young.

12
"No dog with no tail
 ain't got no rights."

13
Peter Judson,
 a civil engineer.

	Edmund Lowe.

14
"You're a lucky little
 beggar to have such
 a beautiful Princess
      adopt you."

15
"Why must people be
 cruel and cause so much
 unhappiness! - If I could
 only find a way to help!"

16
The first far-off cry
 of a pure heart
asking for guidance
that he has heard in
months of wandering.

17
"Now we needn't wait 
 any longer - this makes
 our marriage possible -
 won't you ----------?"

18
"You won't mind
 being poor for a
 change, will you?"

19
Asa Ashling, Gina's father,
 whose eyes have grown 
too dim to look ahead.

	Sam Sothern.

20
Kenneth Ashling, his son,
  full of the dreams
      of youth.

	Gareth Hughes.

21
"Why won't you give me a
 chance to show what I can
 do - with modern methods
 and efficiency ----"

22
"Modern impudence! ---
 Just see how fast your
 efficiency can take you
 out of this office!"

23
Where chocolates and
 novels are making
a lasting impression.

24
Gina's sister - Rita Ashling.

	Pauline Starke.

25
"Ask Gina to come to
 the office immediately."

26
One of the things that
 money has bought for
Robert Goring, a typical
wise man of the West.

27
Robert Goring, a type
 that believes "every-
thing has its price."

	Ralph Lewis.

28
Louis Anthony,
 assistant cashier
of the Vanfield Bank.

	Milton Sills

29
"I hear old Ashling's affairs
     are in a bad way."

30
"--- the directors decided
 to call his loans yester-
 day --- it will be awfully
       hard on Gina."

31
Money vs. Happiness

32
"We are never beaten
 until we think we are,
     father ----"

33
"Gina, you don't realize
 how serious it is ----
 if only you would marry
 Mr. Goring - our troubles
     would be over."

34
"---- why not let me
 accept Mr. De Salvo's
 offer of an operatic
 career? - if I succeed -"

35
Paolo de Salvo,
  maker of
operatic stars.

    William Courtleigh.

36
"With such a voice
 - you cannot refuse
 to come with me
 to Paris and study!"

37
"I think it's selfish
 of Gina to think
 of leaving us."

38
"I must talk it over
   with my father."

39
"You grab it, Gina! --
 We can take care of 
 ourselves. Don't you
 waste your talents on
 this one-horse town."

40
"Your daughter is entitled
 to the opportunity -----
 you will never regret it."

41
"It's out of the question
 --I have other plans for
       my daughter."

42
Anthony offers the
   only thing that 
costs nothing -- advice.

43
"Can't you see it's
 your duty to remain
 with your family?"

44
"Duty! If I could only
 look into the future ---"

45
"--- if your mother
 were alive it would
   be different."


46
"Gina, you know I
 love you and hope
 some day ----"

47
"I did not mean to frighten
 the young lady -- I merely
 meant to ask for bread."

48
"Do not trouble, it
 is but a moment's
 weakness -- I have
 traveled a long way."

49
Detained in New York
  by the final nego-
tiations for the South
American contract --

50
"---- I am coming
 on the ten o'clock 
 train to get your
 father's consent."

51
"Something dreadful has
 happened - I can't marry
 you. Father - Rita - and
 Kenneth - they need me 
 now - it's my duty ----"

52
"Duty! Are you going
 to sacrifice both of us?"

53
"If I only knew which
 path to take ----"

54
"Perhaps I can help you."

55
"I'm afraid you can't.
 If I only had to think
 of myself - I wouldn't
      hesitate."

56
"I don't know what I
 wouldn't give to see a
 few years ahead - just
 a glimpse - but that's
 impossible ----"

57
"With this, I can help you
 to project yourself forward
 - say, five years - you will
 see what those five years
 have made of you - whether
 or not your spirit has gone
    forward and upward."

58
"You mean that if I de-
 cide to do a definite
 thing, I can see what the
 consequences would be
 -and decide differently?"

59
"It is the effect the
 decision will have
 on your soul - it is
 the spirit only that
      matters."

60
"You shall have three
 opportunities --- use
     them wisely."

61
"Is it my duty to
 remain at home?"

62
"This will show you.
 Believe and desire
 with a pure heart."

63
THE PATH
   OF
  DUTY

64
The results of five
  years of duty
 to her family.

65
The only occupation
 left to Gina after
illness had ruined 
her singing voice.

66
"Children, before I give
 you a half-holiday to
 see the circus ---"

67
"----- so the board has
 engaged another teacher.
 This letter will explain
      our action."

68
The years have increased
 Anthony's bank account
-- and his selfishness.

69
"I knew you liked me 
 - but - I thought it
 was Gina you wanted
     to marry."

70
"I - I was fond of Gina
 - but - she's changed -
 she's old --- it's you I
     want to marry."

71
"---- so you will have
 a new teacher Monday
 - it seems I'm too old-
      fashioned --"

72
"--- promise me you
 will be nice to the
 new teacher -- and
 never-forget me --
 I love you all ---"

73
Duty done in violation
 of the laws of life is
a weak yielding to the
selfishness of others.

74
"So this is what Louis
 meant when he asked
 me to wait for him."

75
"It isn't jealousy, dear
 --- but I don't want
 you to make the same
 mistake I made ----"

76
"Don't turn from
 me, Rita - I need
 your love now
 more than ever."

77
"So this is what you meant
 when you told me it was
 my duty to remain with my
 family - and wait for you."

78
"Just because you've
 ruined your life, why
 d'you want to spoil
   my happiness?"

79
"Gina, I have always
 loved you --- I can't
 let you go away with
 De Salvo ---- if you
 will only wait -----"

80
"Here is the contract
 --- I sail Saturday -
 you will let me have
 my answer tonight?"

81
"Mr. De Salvo
 is urging me
 to accept an
 operatic career."

82
"Did I not once have
 the pleasure of hearing
 you play in India?"

83
THE PATH
   OF
AMBITION

84
Ambition nearly
  realized after
four years work
at a sacrifice --?

85
Kenneth's studio in
  Paris -- another
drain on Gina's purse.

86
"Then maybe this 
 will convince you."

87
"It's an outrage to
 let Rita live with
 a woman who has
 become notorious!"

88
The cost of ambition
 is never realized
  until too late.

89
"---- if that article
 were true I wouldn't
    want to live!"

90
"Do you suppose I could
 keep the whole family on 
 my salary? ---- have you
 learned nothing about life?"

91
"Then you mean 
 to say it's true?"

92
"---- if I'm to be a
 money machine -
 leave the method 
      to me!"

93
"Another word from 
 you ---- and you'll
 earn your own living."

94
"I'm not going to hurt you
 - I'd rather be dead than
 see you lead such a life!"

95
"---- so at last you have
 ruined me - you Jezebel!"

96
"---- and what have
 you done to me?"

97
"You were a nobody
 and I made you a
  great artist."

98
"Yes --- but you
 made me some-
 thing else first."

99
"Don't worry ----
 talk it over with 
 your daughter."

100
"Can't you see, Gina,
 that your marriage
 to Mr. Goring means
 everything to us?"

101
"Of course this crystal
 business is nonsense --
 but if you'll persuade
 Miss Ashling to marry 
     me -- I ---"

102
"I will show Miss
 Ashling what wealth 
 can do for her."

103
"Permit me to quote from
 your own religion: 'Ye shall
 know the truth and the truth
 shall make ye free'."

104
THE PATH
   OF
 WEALTH

105
Loneliness - - the fruit
  of three years of
wealth without happiness.

106
"Mrs. Louis Anthony
    - madam."

107
"Louis has become
 impossible -- I've
 made up my mind to
 get a separation."

108
"You're both young - don't
  do anything hasty ---"

109
"You know, dear ----
 there must be sacrifices
  on both sides ----"

110
The reason for 
 Mrs. Goring's 
 loneliness.

111
"We can't go on like this
 --- you must find a way
 to get rid of your wife."

112
The unwelcome
   visitor.

113
"I'll not stand for your
 sister's interference -
   you're coming home 
       with me."

114
"Gina has nothing
 to do with it ---"

115
"You're to blame -
 I'll never rest until
    I get even."

116
Goring finds
 a more than
willing ally.

117
"If you put this through
 for me ---- I'll go the
     limit for you."

118
Clarence Morgan,
 a cabaret parasite.
	Rudolfo Valentino.

119
"My name is to be
 kept out of this."

120
"Give this money 
   to Morgan."

121
"I am motoring in from
 the country --- please 
 remain at home I want
 to talk to you ----"

122
"This is Dr. Grant
 speaking ---- your
 husband has been
 seriously injured -"

123
"---- at Pearson's
 road-house --- Mr.
 Brown's room, A-4."

124
"Is he badly injured,
      doctor?"

125
"The doctors are holding 
 a consultation in there."

126
"Darling, I know you
 love me - but what
 of your husband?"

127
"Thanks, Louis. I have
 suspected this for 
 some time."

128
Judge Singleton's
   chambers.

129
"I decline to answer 
 on the grounds that
 it might --- incrimi-
       nate me."

130
"The plaintiff rests."

131
"I fail to see the slightest 
   evidence of conspiracy.
    Motion denied. Call
      your witnesses."

132
"Mrs. Goring, will you
 please take the stand?"

133
"She admits it."

134
"I admit nothing! You
 have permitted these
 contemptible hirelings
  to swear away my
   reputation ---"

135
"You sit calmly by while
 a woman's name ----
 is bespattered by a man
 without honor --- and
  without conscience."

136
"Silence, Madame --
 or I shall grant Mr.
 Goring the divorce!"

137
"---- and brand me
 faithless to one man
 -- and fair game for
     every other!"

138
"Madam, you must observe
 the decorum of this court
       of justice."

139
"Justice - if this be
 justice then God
 help every woman!"

140
   GUILTLESS!

Condemned by the
 merciless judge,
 Public Opinion -

'To hell for life
 and no parole!'

141
Deserted by her
 friends and even
the family for which
she sacrificed herself.

142
Dick Brownell
   of the
Central office.

	Norman Selby.

143
"I'm just out of the
 hospital. I used to
 get odd jobs singing
 but my voice is gone."

144
"It's stopped raining now
 - let me go home."

145
"You don't look like a
 woman that would steal
 --- you're on the level,
     aren't you?"

146
"I come here to laugh at
 these fool women - who
 never stop to think that
 all they have depends
 on the selfish whim of
       some man."

147
"I've got a laugh coming 
      ---- haven't I?"

148
"Gina! I've looked
 everywhere for you!"

149
"Don't you know me, Gina?
 Think back - it's Peter."

150
"I'm not going to lose you 
 again - there's still happi-
   ness for both of us."

151
"--- no happiness for me!
 - I'm tired - so tired ---"

152
"Peter, don't you ever 
 dare to leave me!"

153
"Love with wisdom is the
 secret of life. Weigh well
 what you have seen ----
 judge not from the material
    but the spirit."

154
"Find out your daughter's 
 decision ---- and we'll
 discuss your affairs later."

155
"---- but I can't marry
    Mr. Goring. Money
 isn't all of life - it's the
      least of it!"

156
"That Hindu double-
   crossed us!"

157
"Father, nothing ever 
 came of doing the
 wrong thing - even 
  to save others."

158
"There is your answer ----
 if you will only see things
 with the eyes of youth!"

159
"With Kenneth's youth
 - and your experience -
 there's nothing you can't
       accomplish!"

160
"The Consolidated will take
 over your business for a
    half-interest ----"

161
"I wanted to tell you this
 morning but you wouldn't
 let me - it means modern
 methods - efficiency ---"

162
"How can I thank you
 for the service you've
 done me? - If I could
 only help others as
 you have helped me!"

163
"This is but a toy - tell others
 to look into the pure crystal
 of their own souls and the
 Great Spirit behind the veil
 of destiny shall guide their
        every step."

164
"May the blessings
 of the Everlasting
 rest upon you."

165
"He helped me to look into
 the future - if others could
 have the same opportunity
 - how much unhappiness
   could be avoided."

The End
