AN UNNECESSARY RISK.
One element of danger in the con?
struction and equipment of moving
pi'ture theatres has been generally
overlook???!. That is tbe custom of
placing the tilm machine gallery over
lh?? main entra?e. The practice is
natural enough, since when p1??ture
shows were Erst given in hails ami
theatres it was MCeOMTJ to put the
BCToea ou th?.* platform or stage. The
?freetoot danger from tire in a theatre
i*? from behind the stage, and the
theatre-, chief Bolts are furthest away
from t!i?? source of peril. In the mov?
ing picture show pluces the sttuutlon
has been exactly rewiseil. The chief
?lancer Of lire is in the tilm machine
'..?X. and that N usually placed over
! be main exit.
Il N proba!?ly I lie knowledge that in
? im? of lire ihe main avenue of egress
will he ihr.?atened which makes the
crowd in an average moving picture

main entrance at the other end of the

Much has been said 1n ridicule df th:

as if th?- only excuse for gucb dedsiOl
was utter blindness to the real wlfar

NOT CLEAR ENOUGH.
The Senate steadily refused to mod?
ify the single-term amendment to ibi
Constitution drawn by Its Judiciary
('omrnitt??e. Probably It thought that
the simplest form possible would be
the safest form. But in tbe desire 10
avoid ?'Omplications the supporters of
the amendment currie?l their self-re?
straint too far. On one important point
tiiey left their draft open to the charge
? if ambiguity. It ivad :
The exccutlvs power shall be vested
m ?1 President of the United States of
America. Tho term of otlico of Presi?
dent .-?hall l?e six years, and no p<-r
S'.n who has held the office by ale? -
tlon, or discharged ltd powers or du?
ties, or a?ted as President under the
Constitution and laws In pursuant e
thereof shall be eligible to again hol?3
the 0008 by election.
Th?*re can Ik? no doubt that this lan?
guage excludes the -tosMhllity ?if a aec
oud term for anybody. But it leaves
oj?on the <pie??tion whether the change
in tbe length of the term is to apply 1o
tho President In ??ftiee at the time the
amendment shall be ratified -if i! is
ratified?or to the President ?ile?'tcd for
the t??rm next following ratification.
No ?llsput" ?should be left for the courts
to settle, and It is desirable that the
House of Representatives should add a
clause gf I sentence to the am?'iiduient
showing whether the extension of the
term, when authorized, in to apply or
not to apply to the Presulent who is
then in ottlee.
The voters elected Mr. Wilxon for a
fcur-year term and did not (*or.toiiiplatei
