tfoOZE IN MOVIES. Thr-writer
has-been a reader of The Day Book
fbr,,some time past and has always
taken an interest in the "Public

Nbticing A. V. B.'s article, "Booze
in the Movies," it seems a shame that
her' 'husband hasn't will power

wfthbut asking the film manufactur

some cases, is the main or starting

enough to quit when he has enough.'
She goes on to ask why the censors
don't help temperance. Isn'-t our
censorship broad enough as it is?
Some time ago the Jewish people
complained of their race being cari
catured in pictures and the compa
nies had to cut it out. They have
cut out fight and murder scenes,
soul kisses, etc. Now A. V. B. wants
drinking scenes discontinued on ac
count of her husband. Whose next?
Suppose some "humane" person will
be asking them to cut out dogs and
cats from pictures on the plea of
cruelty to dumb animals.
After that, let's have them discon
tinue moving pictures altogether.
Then what will A. V. B.4o? W.H.B.
MISSED THE POINT.A clipping
from your paper entitled "Rank" and
signed "Aristocrat" has been sent me.
The writer evidently missed the point
of my letter to the Taxpayers' ass'n.
I understand a job to he work
which begins at a certain definite
hour and ends at a definite hour.
Work such that the employer may
not in justice expect any more time
spent on it than is expressly agreed
My point is, that school teaching
requires much work outside of the
six hours of the school days, and that
if I did not give this outside time to
it I would not do justice to the pupils
or to the people who hire me.
I would be glad to know if the Tax
payers' ass'n and the people general
ly who talk about the teacher's short
day expect that the planning of class
work, the keeping of attendance and
scholarship records, the care of
books and materials belonging to the
school, the reading of pupils' written
work, the preparing of material for
pupil's use, attention given to ath
letics, entertainments and the like, if
people expect that this comes into
the six hours of the school day.
I have no objection to my vrofk
being called a job except that my em
