engaged In being a movie actor. It is Just
as well to be a movie actor and let It go
at that. This Is the system which I pur
sued. I began by demanding the centre
of tho picture. I believe this is custom
ary among veterans of the profession. I
Insisted that all tho other performers so
favored as to bo permitted to appear on
the same film with mo should tako the
background and make themselves as un
obtrusive nnd inconspicuous as possible.
This also I understand to bo the stand

that my picture should be 'featured' on
all advertising, lithographing and other

appear In letters not less than IS Inches

short, I endea voted to act as nearly as
possible Ilko a regular movie actor.

points relating to ecclesiastical leader

Bishop for his statement regarding neu

"Secondly," he said. "I regret my
Bishop did not call me to see him, as Is
the custom In a democratic church, be

Further, the Bl8hop has indicated no line
