Police Produce Play.
Probably for the first time In history,
the police of New Orleans are using mo
tion pictures, not for the detection of
crime, but for the purpose of advertising
the annual festival for the benefit of
the relief fund, which Is to he held In
a few weeks. The police paid a tribute
to the value of the films by acting- a
farce comedy of their own authorship
under the centuries-old trees of City
The chief characters are the tallest,
the smallest and the fattest policemen

Theater Owner Who
Ought to Be
That a large share of the success
of the moving picture theater of
the future will depend upon how far
the public Is consulted In the selec
tion of programs Is being made
plainer and plainer every day. It
probably has occurred to but few
exhibitors that what people of one
locality are glad to get those liv
ing In another section will not take
the troublo to step across the street
to see. Yesterday the establish
ment of a projection room by one
exchange manager was noted In
this column. Today we print a
statement from the owner of a
string of theaters setting forth his
ideas of the proper conduct of the
business from the exhibitor's point
of view. We have been very glad
to quote the exchange manager be
cause he Is one of the most suc
cessful In the business. And we are
also glad to be able to quote the
I theater owner, because he owns sev-
eral of thn most successful hmmeit
In Washington." And we are espe
cially glad to present the views of
both to the readers of this column
because they agree absolutely with
the statements we have been making
from time to time during the last
"If politicians, managers of pub
lic utilities, etc., would take morn
interest In criticisms of themselves
and their enterprises. It seems to
me they would benefit themselves
and their charges and do much to
kill oft any prejudices that might
exist against them," states this the
ater owner. "I am Interested in
several enterprises In and outside or
Washington, ambng them being "a
number of motion picture houses. As
the owner of such places, I realize
that nowhere does the public play
so important a part In success or
"A few years ago a man could
rent an old store, tear. out the front,
blaze it with lights, display bill
boards and catch lots of nickels. But
that day is passing. Now we find
fireproof buildings, ample exits,
ventilating fans, and all otbjer pos
sible means adopted for the com
fort and safety of patrons. We
owners fully realize the truth of the
statement that "Politeness Js a gilt
edged investment and never falls to-
pay a dividend." The resIdenceMls
tinct theater particularly depends
for Its success on a certain little
coterie In its vicinity, and It is very
surprising to note how certain pic
tures will entertain a certain section
and be a dismal failure In other sec
tions. It is true that the films
showing Mary Pickford or the Mu
tual Girl, or Kathlyn Williams,
seem to be favorites everywhere
but there are other fine pictures
that do not have a universal appeal.
Washington Is peculiarly adapted to
the successful exhibition of motion
pictures they are permitted to open
on Sundays, and there are many
other conditions that make for good
"It seems to me that what is need
ed to insure success is to draw the
Patrons and the theater manage
ment closer together. I have seated
that politeness pays, but politeness
must be like the quality of mercy.
It must bless him that gives.
"Surely If the manager does all he
can to glvo his patrons what pictures
they want even at more cost he Is
entitled to encouragement. It Is
not his f.ault If the reel breaks and
for a moment the patron Is annoyed.
Then, too, the same class of pic
tures cannot always be shown.
Spring would be but dreary weather
if It were nothing else but spring.
It would be very boring to the old
folks If there were all 'Keystone
comedies' and to the little folks If It
were all 'dramas.' So when patrons
should expect to share the reel e
Icctlons with their friends of different
tastes, get close to the manager,
tell him what Is wanted It Is often
as easy ror him to give a certain
feature as otherwise, and he wants
to please his patrons that's his busi
ness and his living.
"There are coming now some un
usual attractions. 'The Million Dol
lar Mystery.' Mary Pickford. in
many of the old. beloved scenes
where she began her success; new
comedies, with Ford Sterling for the
little folks. By asking, no doubt
the home theater can give those very
attractions, especially If It be as
sured of the co-operation of the
patrons. On Sundays lots of us people
feel that it would be best to show no
sensational features to. make the
show cleaner on that day, and to
add some educational attractions to
the shows but we must have your
sanction. It would be suicide for us
to adopt such a Sunday policy with
out the public's approval.
"In short, we want the public's
money, but at the same time we want
to please and give full value. While
it Is Just ahout as economical for us
to give five and six reels. It would
in the end be much more satisfactory
for all to have few reels and better.
Confer with the theater man; ho
knows his patrons by sight and
wants to know them personally. We
would all like to have honest criti
cisms. Personally, I am for good,
clean shows, and for refined Sunday
shows. Our theaters have helped
the playground fund and the
churches. We will do it again and
again, and will meet the public more
than halfway In any honest, sincere
elevation of the picture business."
Madame Blache Has a
Very Narrow Escape
While stacinc- a complicated water
scene last week for a coming Blache
feature entitled. "The Mysterious
Bride." Madame Blache narrowly es
caped lniurv when a large glaBS tank
cave way under the pressure o fwater
and scattered broken glass In every di
rection. The accident happened in the Blafche
studio, where the tank had been built
and carefullv tested for the making of
a scene In which Kenneth D. Harlan is
thrown Into the sea in a sack and cuts
his wav to liberty while under the wat
er. In view of the fact that Annete
Kcllermanrf and Director Herbert Bren
non had a narrow escape because of the
breaklnr of a class tank last winter
Madame Blache took every precaution
to try to nrevent a similar occurrence.
But a .flaw In the glass must have
weakened It In a mannar Impossible to
detect with the naked eye. for scarcely
had the camera begun to grind when
the side of the tank near which Madamo
Blache was standlne suddenly gave way
and onlv the ranldltv with which she
ran before the shower of water and
broken class saved her from receiving
anv serious Inlury.
The repairing of the tank was only a
matter of a few hours' work and the
scene was flnallv comnleted without a
reccurpenoe of the accident.

the benefit of the reader, for it 'is
rarely beautiful and artistic. The
skirt and overskirt are of smoke
gray, pussy willow taffeta, that ma
terial which is going to prove a
universal favorite for fall, while
the basque is made, of brilliant
Chinese blue flowered crepe.
The sleeves are rather short and
gathered at the wrist, but a long
tongue-shaped ruffle of the satin
adds a soft frill over the hand. The
overskirt comes just above the
knees. A mere frill of very fine
cream lace is the sole decoration
for the throat.
White gloves and black patent
leather cloth-top shoes are worn.
The hat is of black, with a blue
lining to correspond with the tone

you the real truth, they were
doing their best to annoy one
"Stop bumping me every time you

replied Tom. Indignantly, vyou

you know that you do,' cried Teddy,

Just In time to crab with both paws,
and hold on tight at the top while
Tom banged his end of the see-saw
very hard upon the ground. Teddy
set his mouth firmly and held his
tongue away from his teeth. He

to be shaken.
Therf, too, they could not quarrel

In the picture, they nave already

to cure them from teasing one

gave Teddy a fearful buap. "Oh.

set In, which Is somewhat unusual In
such- a sheer fabric. Also they were
long and close fitting, and finished with
small white organdie cuffs. The bodice

shoulders plain in yoke effect, and
others are wrinkled. Alt the sleeves are
