When I was a little girl X used to
go to the country for my vacation
times. There was a big ranch and a
monstrously big barn. There was
also a lot of tramps during the har
vest time. I remember them well
since I then
thought the chief
purpose in their
comings was to
steal little girls.
' One day the
men drove up to
the big barn with
a load of hay and
through a high
window way up
near the roof and
dropped it down
inairla After the
alTllfudldtna unloading was
i finished they

This set them to burrowing with their
pitchforks and pretty soon .they un
covered a very disheveled tramp. He
had sneaked inside the barn to steal
a mid-day nap and the hay was upon
I know that I must feel very much
as did that tramp when he awakened
from his dreams. . Questions have
been pouring in and down upon me
from "Screen struck girlies" until I
am covered high above my head. I
don't know how I shall ever clamber
One of the points is about ther ne
cessity of athletic accomplishments.
"Must I know how to swim?"
Others wanL.to know about rowing :
or autoing or what-not
Now none of these things are ab-'
solutely necessary to becoming a
motion picture actress. They often
help, but, after all, are accessories to,
rather than, the substance of the '
thing. The outstanding essential to
becoming a great motion picture ac
tress is being able to actually live'
and breathe a great part and make
the audience live and breathe it with
you. The success of anyone on the
screen is not a matter to be analyzed,
for analysis is a thing of cold in
tellect and motion picture success
lies in making the people feel rather

of it, but I would have her realize
their subordination to the really ar
tistic side of the profession. A good
wardrobe is often a very handy thing
for the film actress to have, but be
cause of it she never can become a
great actress, nor even more nearly
a great actress. The same may be '
said of athletic accomplishments
when considered merely as such and
not as possible aids to good health
and clear thinking.

woman who recently decide each to
subdue the other, and they both end
up by falling deeply in love. The two .

"The Star of India," a photoplay
that deals with a valuable diamond
dug up by the slaves of an Indian
rajah, is shown - at the Orpheum,
South Side, today. The stone is ' '
handed down through many genera

and its final return is an interesting
story. "His Blowout," a Vogue com

Cooperation in Photoplay Industry

The success of any theater is due
largely to the support or co-operation
it receives from the exchange supply
ing the programs, but it is just as nec
essary for the exchange to have the
co operation of
the exhibitor, in
outlining the class
of subjects that
best meet his re

him the kind of a

A theater run
make a success, neither can any other
business for that matter. The time
has passed when all that was necessary
to draw a crowd to a picture theater
was to open the doors and take in the
money. Today it requires much time
and thought to arrange programs that
will be pleasing to the majority of
patrons, but I find that a mixed pro
gram with a variety of subjects is
usually better liked. -
The exchange not only co-operates
with the exhibitor in the matter of
arranging his programs, but aa well
furnishes the lobby display. Jhis
usually consists ofone, three and six
sheet posters, a set of photographs
and heralds, which, to be of any bene
fit to the exhibitor, must reach him
at least three or four days in advance
of the ahowinfi- nf trie ciihte.a ;

anu uuuiu me oesc results.
Occasionally a brothi" exhibitor is
careless in returning films and adver
tising matter promptly, wjiich some
times means a disappointment to the
next exhibitor who is to use the sub
jects, for it necessitates the substitu
tion of another subject, and I regret
to say, no matter how good it may be,
it is hardly ever as satisfactory as
the one advertised.
In order for the exchange to meet
its obligations at the end of each weeH
we must rely upon the exhibitor pay
ing his bills promptly, for a buying
exchange is put to a big expense.when .
you consider that each reel of film will
average about $100 not counting rent,
light and operating expenses. I am,
pleased to state, however, that the '
exhibitors in this territory, with a ,
few, exceptions, are very prompt in
making their remittances. !
In co-operation there is strength,
so let us get together one and all who
are interested in the great moving pic
ture industry and help each other to
make this the most fascinating and,,
as well, profitable businesses of the'
