Some idea of the immensity of
the task of keeping the millions of
photoplay fans entertained may be
gathered from the fact that the Fa
mous Players-Lasky corporation,
the largest concern of its kind in
the world, will produce a photoplay
a day for each day itr the year, be
ginning September 1, lacking one
day. Why, this is almost like turn
ing out fabricated ships, of which
so much has been said in recent
months. The plant required for
this voluminous output requires two
very large and elaborately equipped
studios in the east and a body of
real estate men, know n screen
vernacular as a "lot," but which a
cowboy would call a "ranch;" and
in California, where lack of sunlight
never holds up a fretful director, an
aggregation of studios which, if
brought together, would constitute
a fair-sized city. Near Los Angeles
the corporation , has also leased a
r-nch of 400,000 acres, containing
about '"'every variety of landscape
that any reasonable producer could
want, unless he wanted something
not found on the ranch. The per
sonnel is headed by the biggest ar
ray of stars ever brought under one
management, including Mary Pick
ford, W. S. Hart, Dorothy Dalton,
Enrico Caruso, William Faver
sham, George M. Cohan, Wallace
Reid, BirHe BtlrkejLila Lee and
ever so many others. Among those

The hero makes 'em smile and sigh, I
make 'em scowl and frown.
They call me a mean ornery cuss, and

Give me the villain every time, ths part

Why anyone can do that If he has ths

prison camps are being abandoned
by their guards, the council adds,
and Italians, Russians and Serbians
are leaving the camps and flooding
the country. .
"This danger," the appeal declares,

Amsterdam, Nov. 5. (By the

ian of Baden, German chancellor,
discussing German reforms in an
interview is quoted by the Vossiche
Zeitung of Berlin as saying: s
God be praised for a real, peace
ful revolution. The old regime is
gone for good. I am firmly con
vinced that a new German democ
racy soon will be living at p ace
without present opponents, in -order
to be able to complete the task of
remodeling Germany." f
The chancellor declared also hat
if in the future the Reichstag should
pass a vote of want of confidence in
him, he would be obliged to resign.
With reforms in the federal states,
he said, it was unthinkable hat the
federal council should ever receive
instructions which would bring it
into conflict with decisions by tfes
Reichstag. " ; .
