Author of "The Fall of a Nation" At
tacks Peace Activities of the For
mimer Secretary of State.
Thomas Dixon, author of "The Fall
of a Nation," has come to the front
in answer to the criticisms of his
caricature of ex-Secretary William J.
Bryan under the name of Hon. Plato
Barker in the film .
"It appears to me that the film is
always singled out for condemnation
in respect of matters that do not start
even a ripple when piesented on the
legitimate stage or in the funny col
-umns of the papers. Are the cavilers
aware that Mr. Bryan is being cari
catured in almost every summer show
or revue, in the country? I saw him
cartooned in the Zeigfeld Follies the
other night and in a Columbia Theatre
revue in Chicago recently. Every
newspaper cartoonist is privileged to
make fun of public characters. Yet
when a film author does the same
thing hands are held up in holy hor
"My answer to the charge is simply
that all the statements of fact implied
in my caricature are true. Resigning
~from the office of Secretary of State,
Mr. Bryan, so to speak, 'hogged' the
Chautauqua platform and became the
-star lecturer at an emolument of $500
per lecture. He raised the price, gen
'orally collected the money in advance,
and put the other Chautauqua speak
ers in the shade so that summer many
Sof them could not obtain engagements.
The theme of his oratory was 'Peace,'
and he was surrounded by groups of
ndmiring wvomen and~ children just as
tis shown to be in the picture. The
part of the caricature referring to the
1ugure is a likely forecast of what
wvould happen should such an orator
present to an invadling army his Ultop
ian peace proposals. He would be
laughed at, handled with indignity,
and the result of his efforts wvould be
"Inc onclusion I will say that I at
tacked Mr'. Bryan on his record as a
Pacifist and foe of adlequate Prepared
ness. I have nothing whatever against
Mr. Bryan personally but claim the
right to make legitimate sport of his
mitkswhich might have cost
