FIGHT IMPURE MILK
WITH WE FILMS
New York State Board of
Health and Edison Photo
graph Typhoid Germs.
' METHODS or pusiirmo
The state o( New York will con
duct a crusade against impure milk
by the use of motion pictures and
Thomas A. Edison, Inc., it now mak
ing a one-reel film entitled "The
Trump Card" for the use of the New
York State i Board of Health in the
proposed campaign. While the pic
ture will show the process of pas
teurization by which gernTlife in the
lacteal fluid is completely destroyed
and any danger of infection eliminated
it will "not emphasis ' the technical
process, ' It is designed to call at
tention to the danger of unpasteur
ized milk and to show the method by
which milk can be purified, but it does
this through the medium of a little
human interest story of much intrin
sic value. It will educate and enter-'
tain at the same time and the state
authorities are confident that this film
and others of a aimilar nature can be
used very effectively. '
The script was written by Alan
Crosland, casting director for Thomas
A, Edison,; Inc., and it was revised by
T. Boynton Peck, a chief of the dt
' vision of exhibits for the state depart
ment of health, Mr. Crosland has
charge of the production of the film,
which is nearly completed at the pres
ent time. The story tells how the ef
forts of the mayor of a village to se
cure an ordinance compelling the pas
teurization of all milk sold in the cor-
S oration was opposed by political
osa who supported the milk dealers
of the district. The opposition had
the best of it and the typhoid epidemic
continued to grow until the daughter
of the "boas" became ill with the
fever. This made a convert to pas
teurization of the politician and re
suited in the passage of the ordinance
desired by the mayor ana recom
mended bv the state authorities.
Among 'the members of the cast
are Robert Conness. Adele Pratt, Her
bert Prior, Leonie Flugrath, Andy
Uark end Uurles Suttou.
