THE WASHINGTON TIMES. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1914. 3p.ir-.Mrj4. THE BEST Photoplay Department in WASHINGTON Fight for Cleaner Film Given a Powerful Boost. There have been two Important happenings this week in motion pic turen that muBt have a decided ef fect on those irresponsible producers irho do not care what they produce o long as they can find thoughtless exhibitors to buy their film. The first of these is the editorial an nouncement by the Moving Picture World of the fact that it has de clined to accept advertising: matter for and refused to review in its columns two films that it regards as highly objectionable. This boldly published statement, which is in line with the many progressive policies of the same publication, strikes a new and deeper blow at the improper film than has ever been struck before and opers an entirely .new field of what we might call real social service. Never before, so far as we know, has a publication refused admission to Its advertising columns of the an nouncement of a book or a play or a story that has features that are objectionable to the editor from the standpoint of their effect on morals. There may be isolated Instances of such happenings, but there have been none that we can recall. While a paper might decline to print the atory. lta advertising columns have usually been permitted to carry ad vertlEing that was paid for. The Moving Picture World, how ever, puts Its whole heart and soul into its crusade against unclean pic tures and backs up its editorial pro tent with a most practical demon stration of Its ability to keep all its columns clean. For this it should be commended, and for setting a precedent for other publications, not only of moving picture matter but of a more varied character, it is to oe heartily congratulated. The sec ond Important happening is the pub lication in the same journal of an article by the Rev. E. Boudinot Stock ton, S. T. B., on the subject of such pictures as he believes .are detri mental to the morals of the com munity. Father Boudinot is a mo tion picture enthusiast He hab given more thought and attention to the film than many laymen, and is an enthusiastic advocate both of its use for -entertainment and for educational purposes. In his article he states: There is absolutely no excuse pos sible for this kind of picture, but it may bo argued with some apparent plausibility that the vice and drug and other pictures that are "'exposes with a moral lesson" are very differ ent and shoiild not be classed "with them. These latter claim to b pro duced and disseminated only for the purpose of warning people of the Krave and serious dangers to their moral life with which they are sur rounded and to be Intended to help people to bo able to recognize and escape these dangers. Even so, do they do anything more than give us a knowledge of the details, most of tbem revolting and disgusting, of the cancers and diseases that wreck and destroy the life of some persons. Not one of them teaches us how to escape them or how to get cured If we become a victim to them. All that they can do is to scare us into fits and panic over the Imminent? and awfulness of the things to be avoided and to deprive us of the power of sane reasoning and ener getic action that will preserve us against the evil they expose. You cannot teach a child how to keep clean by showing him how he can get dirty, but you can put Ideas Into his head and make him want to see how dirty be can get without getting into trobule. You cannot teach anybody how to live a godly, eober and righteous life by showing him the many different ways in which he can become vicious. You have got to show him what godli ness, righteousness and sobriety mean and why they will make him better and happier and are desir able. In other words, if you wish to teach anybody anything, you do not do it by teaching him what the things arc not and how he can get them, you do it by showing him what the things are and how ho can get them. The most you can do with vice and drug pictures is to drive hysterical and nervous per sons into hysteria and panic and to disgust stronger minded and saner natures. At the bottom and In the last analysis, the "expose with a moral lesson" is no whit better or dlf erpnt from the frankly immoral picture. Both deal in vice as a sub 1ct and both show you how vice tries to make Itself attractive. By four years of hard fighting against the morbid and nasty pic tuie, the American people have shown plainly that they have no aympathv with fore'gn moral or rather Immoral standards, and that they want clean, wholesome pictures that will appeal to a man's better frlf and will bring him more In touch Ith the good, the true, the beauti ful, in every community, however, there are always individuals of a warped nature, poisoned mentality and seared moral force who not only delight in foulness and fllthlness themselves, but are also w'lllntr for tho pake of gain to pandor to the dpra'ed tastes and basr passions of others, even when It involves the f-orruption of Innocence and the de struction of all that is pure and noble and holy. Consequently, no sooner have we begun to be success ful In stemming the tide of frankly Immoral pictures with which some manufacturers have endeavored to flood the market than we are con fronted with the same kind of pic tures In the gulFe of "moral preach ers" who proclaim that their mis sion Is "to save the innocent by ex posing the evils with which they are surrounded," and the so-called vice and drug picture raises its snaky head. Thanks to the clean-minded manu facturers and the national board of censoishlp. this sort of thing has been practlcallv. although not alto gether, eradicated from the ordinary programs, but one after another, during the past year, feature films of four, five and six rells have been put upon the market and extensively advertised professing to teach a great moral lesson by unmasking the grave dangers to which children and the young are exposed; and within the past ten days there have been exhibited three pictures, all of them revolting, and one of them ab solutely disgusting and scandalous in its open advocacy of debauchery. The American people have shown that they want only clean pictures. The decent and reputable manufac turers have proved that they want to produce only clean pictures. The entrance into the market of the filth and putridity that is being pro duced under specious arguments faces evervone in the business with a serious danger and grave responsi bility.

They took us home, and wanted us to kiss them good-night, ' but we wouldn't. Do you think we should have let them kiss us? One asked me for my picture. Do you think it would have been proper to give him one? What would you think of a girl who flirts with boys she doesn't know right out in public? SILVER BELL. I think a girl who flirts with boys I she does not know is a good deal of a goose, unless she is something worse. The boys you -met at the sociable must have been rather crude young persons. It was very insulting for them to at tempt so much familiarity on such short acquaintance. Do not give your picture to any one until you know what you arc doing.
