Oct., 1, 1929, Movies
Oct. 1, 1929: "Say It With Songs" will premiere at the Warner Bros. Theatre in Hollywood. "Hard to Get" is a "melange of mirth."

Oct. 1, 1929, Women

Now this came as something of a surprise. I had always assumed that the 1920s were the golden age of women's clubs, an era that continued into the 1950s. But this story by Myra Nye features young women who were pursuing careers instead of joining clubs. For example, Miriam Olden, who graduated from USC with a law degree, was an attorney for many years. She married another lawyer, Harold Fendler, and in 1960 their son Robert was admitted to the bar.
