Motion picture film manufacturing com

free films designed especially for tho en

along the lines suggested by tho social

F. Sturgess of tho social servlco board,
"and they have approved the Idea nnd
will begin, so they say, arrangements to
make more and better films, especially
for children, but at tho same time In
teresting to grownups."
Tho members of tho social tervlce hoard
nnd a committee from tho association of
theatrical managers are preparing (hf
first program for the children. They will
complete tho program within the next
two days and it will be shown probably

At tho last meeting of tho social sm

board and discussed tho Idea of a. spe

said great difficulty was experience in
finding high-class films for children.
"Naturally, dry subjects, uninteresting
and purely instructive are not wanted,"
said Chairman Sturgess. "What wo In
tend to prepare Is a progTam that will
be Instructive and at tho same time full
of Hfo and sufficiently Interefltlng to hold
the attention of the children."
