THE WASHINGTON TDIES, FRIDAY, JANUARY 14; 191G.
" IT IL0.H MOVING PICTURES Opponents Appearing Before House Committee Against Hughes Bill for Board. CALLED MODE OF EXPRESSION Declared Censorship Would Vio late Right of Free Speech and Tie Up Industry. "Whether Undo Sam shall put his O. K. on the "movies" Is the Issue now beforo the JIouso Committee on "Kdu catlon, Which will continue Us hear ings tonlpht on the Hutches bill for a Federal -board of. censorship to pass upon ovory foot ot film shown within the United States. 1ho hearings besran at th Capitol lnst nlRht, und many representatives of reform organizations nnd tho mov liifif picture Industry were present. The reform forces were led by tho nev. Wilbur Crafts, of this city, who declared Federal censorship Is neces sary to prohibit the exhibition of i Isquo pictures. J. VT. Hinder, of New York, secretary of the motion picture board of trade, nnd other spokesmen for film produ cers, told tho committee that the ex isting method of censorship by State board nnd municipal authorities, In conjunction with that maintained by tho Industry itself, meets all require ments. , Foresees Industry "Tied Up." Mr. Binder predicted that the Indus try will be. "tied up" by a Federal in spection system, which must pass on omo ten million feet of film per W eek, that great harm will come to the Industry, and some concerns will be forced to po out of business. The Hufthos bill would prevent the exhibition of any picture In tho Unit ed States without tho O. K. of the Federal Government. Its mandates would be made cffectUe by refusing copyright nnd interstate commerce privileges to objectionable Alms. The hearings on the bill will continue from night to nlf?ht for tho next weeK nnd additional tlmo will be given for the filing of briers. Report of the bill by the House committee Is expected, an a similar measure was reported last session, but the reception of such a proposal In the House and the Senate Is problematical. Mr, Binder argued that there Is no moie reason for Federal censorship or the moving plcturo than there Is lor a Federal board to censor speeches. Modes of Expression. "Th.erc aro several modes of expres nlon' he said; "one Is speech, another is printing. A .third Is the 'presentation of news facts or stories on a Him. All men may use the Ilrst two In unlimited manner, with due'' regard to certain responsibilities. If they disregard tnese lesponslbllltfes they are punished. No ono attempts to censor speech or to eenswr everything that is pi luted. Why 'hould a third method of expiesslon, hlch did not happen to lie invented when the Constitution wns adopted, tie suhlected to governmental censorship?" Mr. Binder nald the bill would nro- hlblt tho sho-vlng of n film made pre vious to the pTiactment of the law be fuse It provided that all films shown must bo reiiHored in advance. lie asserted that delajs in censorlnir would tie up millions of capital, that over ten million feet per week of new film must he paxsed upon, anil that under the 1I1I as drawn there could lie no film imported from other ountrles. The centering of one scene, he arc lied, would l'e up an entire play and no one IommI could possibly do all the work necewtary to pass properly upon th' millions of feet of film made week'.. In tills country. Other opponents of the legislation present Include, l l'nul Cromelln, J. It. Freuhler. I'. A. Powers. Chester Bec-c-roft, William A. Johnston, and "Wil liam A.
