mediocre through aid of the printer's art.
Just your name and address in neat lettering at top

that at once raises your letter above the dead level

There is food for thought In the
statement made by Rev. John Wadman
to the Hllo High school students tnat
the leaders In the prohibition move
ment today are not " 'long haired men'
or 'short haired women, but big busi
ness managers, railway directors,
labor employment bureaus and life in-'
surance companies." When once It
is entirely true that the professional
reformers have been replaced as lead
ers In the prohibition movement by
statesmen, educators and business
men, the liquor traffic will be doomed
beyond all recall. Hilo Tribune.

FREELAND ON THE MOVIES PRO
BLEM. Editor Maul News: Your article on
reforming the Movies in the issue of
Nov. 26, 1915, and the statement from
the Friend, show that local interests
are beginning to realize the great
moral and educational value of mov
ing pictures, and while the press and
pulpit think the Movies need reform
ing, it is a fact that the public needed
Indian and Cow Boy Stuff no longer
draw the crowd with the possible ex
ception of the boy in the front row,
and even the youngster who often
gets a nickel from a generous papa
Is getting tired of it.
The public now wants something
good, they Btarted in on rough stuff,
then sensational, now they want
Features which have merit, artistic
setting, and played by stars of ability
The management of all well regulat
ed theatres have noticed this, and
changed their service accordingly, but
film manufacturers are not bo fortun
ate and are now puzzled to know Just
what to do, everything seems to have
been picturized, so much so that large
sums are now paid for an idea and at
present in one of the pictures running
at local theatres, there are $10,000 of
fered for a mere suggestion. The
Friend might profitably start right
here, it might be a great opportunity
to reform the whole world.
Very few demoralizing films are
now shown at any theatre for the
simple reason that the public don't
want to see them. The National
Board of Censors, a group of men
composed of several hundred of Amer
ica's foremost educators and men of
affairs have passed on the majority of
the films cow offered, and their ap
proval carries with it the guarantee
that it is of a moral and educational
value with no demoralizing influences
and fit to be exhibited any day in the
week. From the foregoing it would
appear that the Influence on the pub
lic of moving pictures has been for
good, with still further opportunities
to make the body politic, cleaner and
better, and is it not some what
strange that an Institution with these
possibilities should only be allowed
to operate on week days by our
County fathers? It Is only recently
that a very learned Maul Divine pub
licly made some very inappropriate
remarks about the influence of the
moving pictures. With the record that
this class of amusement has for re
forming the public, lessening the ex
cessive use of intoxicants and its at
tendant evils, it Is probable that In
a few years he will wonder how he
could have made such a mistake.
To Bhow that my heart is in the
right place, and to help the Friend out
in its campaign of reform, I will give
the use of the Pioneer Theatre of
Lahaina free of charge, also pay the
operator and for the electric lights,
for four consecutive Sundays, to any
person or committee of rersons who
think they can reform the Movies or
reform the public.
