' ROUNDLY SCORED
Gag Law on Pictures De
nounced at Meeting of
NOT GIVEN TAR SHAKE
Chicago, July IS. Legal censorship
of motion pictures was roundly de
nounced by delegates to the Motion
Picture Exhibitors' League of Amer
ica at their business session here to
day and resolutions declaring the
league's unalternable use to what
they called gag law on pictures were
adopted unanimously. The delegates
took the position that the motion pic
ture should no more be consored than
should newspapers, books, magazines
or works of art
To do good, the censorship should
be on the minds of the people who
go to see the picture rather than the
picture itself, declared F. J. Herring
ton of Pittsburgh, national president
of the organization.
What of Poet and Tolstoir
"Who ever heard of the govern
ment censoring Shakespeare or Tol
stoi? and, if from the sex standpoint,
some of Shakespeare's plays are not
vulgar; if 'The Resurrection' does
aot contain matter that would be
highly objectionable to every legal
motion picture censor, I cannot un
derstand the written word. Yet, they
are not forbidden general circulation.
Children in schools even are made to
"I do not make t plea for the sex
picture. That is not the idea of our
resolution. . We would be willing to
have no sex pictures, but we do want
to be able to express on the screen
just the same educational matter and
drama' that are expressed daily in the.
press and by leading authors of the
Censorship of Art.
In New York's famous art gallery,
are works which, if we took motion
pictures of, we would not be allowed
to ahow in any theater. But who ever
heard of a legal censorship for art?"
A resolution was also adopted op
posing the proposed war tax on mo
tion picture theaters, i '
The league created a branch organi
zation to be maintained in New York
which is to be known as the federal
branch of manufacturers, producers
and accessories makers of the motion
picture league of America, incorpor
ated. This branch will co-operate
with 'the parent body in furtherance
of the commercial interests of both.
It will be governed by-the following

Here are the (acts concerning the
finding of a boy's coat, pants,
shoes and hat at the Riverview- swim
ming pool Thursday evening after all
of the bathers had checked oat and
'Charles Schneckenberger, 8 yeari
of age, living at 802 Dorcas street,
was bathing and tost the check which
he should present to get hit clothes.
Another boy told him he would have
to pay 10 cents as penalty for the lost
check. He had no available funda,
so he sent the boy home to tell his
sister to bring hia overalls over to the
pool. The lister did as requested, and
the boy went home without laying
anything to the pool attendant!.
The unclaimed garments started a

The Humane Society
and the Tired Horse
HE automobile has come to
the city in amazing num
bers, and all but supplied
the demand for both pleas
ure and work, and yet, as
one watches the traffic in . various
sections, the patient horse is seen to
be present also, performing his la
bors as of old. Many of the animals
are contented and well cared for, and
excite no emotion whatever in the
heart of the passer-by, but, alas I
some are very forlorn and wretched I
To see these thin, sad-looking beasts
struggling along makes one wish for
a badge and a little authority to- les
sen their burdens. Some folk are nat
urally kind and considerate, and some
seem possessed of the devil. I guess
it lies with the kind ones to keep a
watchful and disciplining eye on the
cruel ones. If a grocer s boy whips
his horse he should be made to stop.
Housewives, to make it easier for the
boys to drive moderately, should do
their ordering early in the day and
not send in a hurry call just before
mealtime. A lot of galloping gro
cers horses might oe immensely
helped by this simple reform. Gro
cers' horses, as a rule, have enough
to cat and good care, but in order not
to lose Mrs. So-and-So's trade, who
has forgotten her chops, poor Dobbin
must run his legs off. If only one
ureal ladv fortrot her chops it would
n't be so bad, but many, many of them
rush to the telephone at the last min
ute. Negligence always has to be
paid for somewhere along the line.
I he peddler s horse is another story
and the primitive expressman's; the
little one-horse met) with humble
jobs to perform. Often these horses
have seen prosperous days in well
appointed stable. ; Like some faithful
men who have passed the age limit
and been discharged' they have fallen
from their high estate and end their
lives 'wrestling with rather pitiful
talks taskf to which they are not
equal. My particular sympathy goes
out to these horses. I'd like to see
the faithful, elderly driving and car
riage horses cropping grass in some
nice pasture. Surely they have earned
relt and peace. There is such a farm
outside of Boston. Clover Farm, they
call it don't they? I know they have
a Field day once a year, which is a
very festive and interesting occasion.
the old horses being used in the
city should have their teeth looked
after and filed once in a while. An
old horse's teeth tret rouffh and jag
ged. They can't chew their food
properly and so the food doesn't di
gest. That is the secret of many a
bony old horse. Also if their teeth
are bad they will not stay in the mid
dle of the road, but keep veering off
to either the right or the left. The
bit hurts. This special happening al
ways rouses the ire ot a driver and
he begins to jerk and jerk and only
makes matters worse.
Old horses are entitled to our
watchfulness and sympathy. Youth
gets along better with the hard stabs
of life, but when the best of the physi
cal fiber is used up and gone the spirit
loses its elasticity and the fight is all
an uphill one. Many a tired old
horse mig;ht better be put out of its
misery with a chloroform cone than
left to the cruelties that overtake
these faithful friends.
I understand that quite soon , the
Humane society is to publish a small
folder with maps of the easiest routes
for heavy loads from one part of the.
city to another and with the various
drinking fountains marked and sta
tions at which comtortaoie snoes may
he obtained. This folder should be
of great service. The special officer
of the society is doing splendid edu
cational work. He is at the publbic
market everv morning at 6 o clock
and is trying in matters of harnessing,
shoeing and driving to make the
horses more comtortable. ine nu
mane Society Journal says that on
these hot davs a work horse's shoul
ders (where the collar rubs) and hia
back (where the saddle rubs) should
be washed off with cold water et
noon and in 'the evening. There is
no sense at all in these great red
sores one sees on work horsea. - They
can be easily prevented with e little

Re, the new "forefoot" Rubber
in GOODRICH Tires
OF eoune, it is "not pure Rubber" (no Tire Is).
Of course it is only an Alloy" (every Tire Is).
But this Alloy resembles the pigments used by a
certain world-famous Artist, which he admitted, on inquiry, were
"mixed with Brains."
It took some 47 years of Rubber-Manufacturing Experienet to
produce this "mere Alloy."
It took the best efforts of the largest, and ablest, Research
Department possessed by any Rubber Factory in America to
But, it was worth all the time, effort, and skill, required to
develop it ,
. Because, it has done for Goodrich Rubber what certain other
marvellous Alloys have done for Steel and Bronze, L e., multiplied
its EFFICIENCY for the purpose intended.
And. it has done this without increasing the cost of Goodrich
Tires to Consumers,
"No Concern in America made, or BoldV
during its latest fiscal year. Dearly so many

"Our published! Cfaallcnie, still un

FIRST we called it "Hyper-Rubber," which It is of course.
But. one of its most valuable characteristics, for Tire
(and Shoe) purposes, is its CLING quality its tenacious
grip on smooth and slippery surfaces.
Through that it gives its maximum Traction with a minimum
When you put on the Brakes to stop the Car, or throw in the
Clutch to ttart the Car, the Tires made of this Goodrich Rubber
Alloy instead of grinding against the ground for Traction, CLING to
it as your bare foot would cling to a slippery floor.
That's why we've finally christened it and trade-marked it as
Get a sliver of it at any Goodrich Branch, and you'll find it
stretch almost as much, and return to shape almost as instantly, as a
pure Rubber band.
Weigh a Goodrich "Barefoot" Tire of any size against the cor
responding Bize of other makes of Tire, and you'll find itmany pounds
lighter, though many "Miles" stronger.
Drive it and you'll find in Goodrich "Barefoot" Tires a live
liness, a quick response to power, a tenacity of traction, and all thig
with a Mileage capacity which will surprise and delight you.
TT TE developed this "Barefoot Rubber" primarily for use
lf in our now famous "Silvertown Cord" Tire which,
T f this year, showed such marvellous ENDURANCE on
the Race Track, at over 100 Miles per hour.
But since we cannot yet supply the demand for "Silvertown
Cord" Tires, until three times as much special machinery for its
manufacture can be constructed end installed, we decided to use this
wonderful "Barefoot" RUBBER Alloy in all Goodrich FABRIC
Tires, for 1916.
We also make it into Goodrich Inner Tubes, Goodrich Motor
Cycle Tires, Goodrich Truck Tires, Goodrich Bicycle Tires,
Goodrich Rubber Boota, Overshoes, Soles and Heels, as well as into
Silvertown Cord Tires.
Because. in all of these ita characteristics of "Cling, Spring,
Stretch, Strength, and Lightness" are first requisites.
Now, compare GOODRICH Fair-List prices with prices you are
quoted for same size Tjres of other Brands, that have not the wonder
