VOL. XXIX SEPTEMBER 22, 1921 No. 20!
ADS ON THE SCREEN. t
A bill, now before the legislature, if enacted will prohibit moving a
picture houses from entertaining (?) their patrons with advertisements in
stead of the pictures for which they have paid admission. This bill has I(
caused great consternation among the picture houses and the producers k
of the advertisements. Among the thousands of patrons and movie fans, d
Its passage is looked forward to with anticipation of enjoying pictures
without sitting through long-drawn out advertisements.
The use of the screen as a means of advertising is natural. It is, as
the newspapers and the signboards are, the means of reaching a great
number of people through one medium. Regarding the newspapers-if
you are not interested in advertising, you are free to reject that part of the
paper. Or, you may buy the paper, and many people do, solely for the
advertising matter. But there has never been known a man who has paid
admission into a moving picture theatre to see the advertisements.
Being in the advertising business ourselves, we hope it will not be
thought that we are denouncing film advertising. From the advertiser's ti
viewpoint, it is splendid, from the patrons, it is with exceptions, at least, p
If advertising slides and pictures could be put on the screen only
before the first show of the morning and after the last at night, those who y
feel so about it, might arrange to escape the ordeal. To that, of course, c
the advertisers would hardly agree. n
It may be noted that the theatres of New Orleans, which are con- ti
sidered our very best do not use film advertising of any kind.
SOMETHING FOR A PASTOR TO FIND OUT QUICKLY. 14
The Rev. McElvern, of Portland, Ore., has gotten himself consider- a
ably disliked by calling a man outside his church "a - tool" and by the re
expression of various and sundry other rather blunt remarks.
Says the Rev. McElvern: "I'll bet my church is with me to a man,
but I don't know about the women." h
Better find out right away, pastor. Don't wait a minute! Because cl
if the women of your church are not for you.goodnight,pastor!
The women are the prop and bulwark of every Christian church. I
They not only furnish the numbers and most of the recruits, but they fur- Ii
nish the church with both the spiritual and practical religion that keeps si
it alive and' active. There are men, of course, in every church, and the m
men supply the bulk of the money, but without the spiritual zeal and the bi
free labor of the women members it would be a pretty dead church. bi
By all means, Pastor McElvern, find out how the women feel about it. al
NO REMEDY WHEN THERE'S "NOBODY HOME."
A fourteen-year-old girl in New Jersey shot herself dead after her
father had given her a whipping. "Such tragedies of sensitive immaturity,"
says the New York Sun, "seem beyond a remedy."

It does seem so. Of course, a man who will strike a person smaller
and weaker than himself is usually looked upon as a coward, and the law,
- not to speak about outraged spectators has been known to attempt a
remedy for cowardice.
But the main idea is this: A grown up person is supposed to have
brains. Mature brains, if they are any good at all, can easily exercise
mastery over the undeveloped brains of a child and manage that child.
Thus, a person who strikes a child publicly admits that his brains are no
s better than the child's and that it is necessary therefore for him to use brute
0 strength on the young one. Sad to say the law can't give a man brains.
20 No, there seems to be no remedy when there's "nobody home."
A FASHIONABLE DITF'.
What has become of the stove-pipe hat, that flourished in days agone? F
r" On the Fourth oqJuly, or days like that, we ginerally had one on. And,
*t there ain't no doubt that it done its part, as only a stove-pipe can, to fasten
the triumph of ancient art on the principal end of man!
And what has became of the long-tailed coat, with its sperit of dig
nitude? Has it went the way of the Granger vote, or gone with the
babes in the wood? Has it drifted away, with its crinkle and flop, to T
the valley of no-man's-place. Does it mean that the price at a tailor o0
g shop has established a change of base? b
And, what has went with the flowin' beard, and the reverence which T
a it helt? There ain't no objections that ever I heard, to a dignified, whis- T
s kery pelt! When the ugliest face in this fair land, can furnish its own
I' disguise, a feller may bow to fashion's demand, but, honestly, is it wise? C

e How many people do you know in town? What is your attitude c
s toward strangers that you pass on the streets? Have you a desire to be pi
t, popularly acquainted with the people--or do you prefer obscurity and the w
easy indifference of the populace Take yourself into account. si
y If you know many people and you make yourself smile at them when b
o you speak your cheery "Good morning" you have unconsciously become W
,, cheery inside as a result of it. If your attitude toward the stranger you D
meet is visibly friendly, a new friend is made-for the strangers welcome
i- the chance to know you and to speak to you.
Perhaps you prefer the obscurity we mentioned. If that is your aim a
you shall not fail to achieve it, for it is easy to forget the person who L
lets himself be forgotten. There are many good friends that we miss, P
and some we have forever lost from our thoughts, and we want to be 0
e remembered like the first ones-always remembered and desired. N

Scouting is a man making scheme
with a "blue sky" method. It be
lieves in taking "boys" as they are
and leading them through naturgl
development to the finest type of
character. Utilizing their pleasure
in games and their intense desire to
know and do. it develops them in
citizenship and in ability to see, com
prehend and interpret through their
own lives, the big and worth while
things. It is a way of making sim
plicity, genuineness and beauty, the
most desirable things in life.
