Don't get barbarous!" Lew Cody warns George K.
Arthur, as the latter "baptizes" their new
barbershop by trimming his partner's moustache.
This ceremony was part of the opening of a new
barbershop in Hollywood, across the street from
the Writers' Club, in which the two
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer players, with Renee
Adoree, Jack Conway, and other screen
celebrities are stockholders. The shop is designed
with makeup and beauty departments as
necessities to screen players, from which its
principal patronage is drawn.

Perhaps permanently scarred as a result of a
deep cut over the eye he received when he was
assaulted by Thomas Boyrle, wealthy and
brawny business man, George K. Arthur,
diminutive actor-producer, prepared to sue his
assailant. Boyrle, who was fined $10 for assault
and battery when he was captured and brought
into Municipal court, was said to have attacked
Arthur during a traffic argument in Hollywood.
Through his attorney, Ralph H. Blum, the actor
will sue his assailant for "a very considerable
sum," the amount depending on how much of a
scar is left by the cut, in which two stitches were
taken, he said.
