LAST STORY ABOUT COMMUNITY HOJ "A Community Effort." No peeople is great or good eriept in character. Character is the prod. uct of thcught. "Tell me what you think and I will tell you what you rre," says a write*; and a greater authority than man has said, "As a ma-i thinketh in his heart so is he." It is ideas and ideals that really gov. - ern the world. When they are oper ative character is the result. It is but one half of religion to live in secret with God. The true man owes to himself to give out to his fel lows the best that is within him. The end of our effort is to bring to the minds of our community the best ideas and -:asa iof the day.' The channels adopted-'are those throd'h which th e coming. The' moving pictures are catching the eye of the multitude. Ten millions $ of our people daily attend the picture show. The making and showing of pictures has become the fifth largest business in our country. They have me and -apparently to stay. In them there4s a chance of untold harm and an opportunity for much good. Where these shows are run for finan cial profit there is a temptation to yield to the popular demand whetter that demand be for the best or not. The moral sense of the. country is being aroused to the peril from this source. What all we do? Ban them 'or convert them? We believe the latter can be done, is going to b done and should be done. There are difficultieslto be overcome. Chie among tlse is the lack oA ship'.oyer. the making of k - are th6 rulers in a dmacae encouraging to know that the nora sentiment of.the'country is'beginning to have effect upon some of the lar gest fM producers and they aie qub ting out the objectionable ' thingi Voluntary organizations are spring- ' ing up-in different places for the pur. pose of banning the wrong and ad. vertising the right kind of pictures.
