(From a Staff Correnpondent.)
LINCOLN, July 11. (Rpeclal.)-The rl-
ivsJry whi'h exists In the taking of wo-
I tlon pictures by. the. different film con.
! ns was demonstrated Hera during tha
vlrtt of the Liberty Bell the last week,
when a Lincoln movie , man proposed to
show the representative of the firm
which had a monopoly on the pictures
taken on the trip that he wss not the
whole procession. ,
The outlde movie man had tha ad-
vanta)re of navlng hi, mttcMnt on th.
front end -of the car carrying the hell
and in this position appeared to think
he .had a lead pipe cinch. ' However," he
had never bei'ore run up against the real
thing In resources carried around by the
average Nebraskan and as a result has
not the only pictures taken of the event
In Lincoln. -
Ray Lindsay, the moving picture ma
chine .operator, who assists Dr. Condra
In the taking of the movies for the state
conservation and welfare commission,
made up his mind that tha traveling
representative ot an eastern concern
might think he had a cinch on tha bust
nee, but he would show him what Ne
braska could do as well, and as a conse
quence climbed to the top of a two-story
brick building In cloee proximity to the
bell and secured some especially fine
pictures, . showing ' the traveling movie
man desperately at work on the f roni
end of the car taking the "only author
Ized pictures of the trip."
