Motion pictures are being; recom
mended by some eye specialists to
do for the muscles of the eyes what
the gymnasium apparatus does for
the other muscles of the body.
This Is the newest phase of the
question of whether or not the pic
tures injure the eyes. Ths special
ists who say film shows are good
Exercise give the caution, however,
that they offer a sort of exercise
tnat can be overdone, and they
warn the film patron not to see too
many pictures without going Into
the open or somewhere that a
steady light might be seen.
The Improvements that have been
made in motion pictures during the
last few years have almost elim
inated the constant flicker on the
screen and the theater where such
nickers appear can be set down as

Dr. Leonard Hlrshberg, The Times
expert, has several times spoken of
the film show as good eye exercis

of the National Committee for the
Prevention of Blindness, with his
Where nana Lies.
Mr. Berry, in a statement that
has Just been Issued by the Com
mittee for the Prevention of Blind
ness, states that there may be
danger to the eyesight by too fre
quent visits to film shows, but
there isn't appreciable danger In
moderate Indulgence, provided the
eyesight is good to start with.
Both Mr. Berry and Dr. Hlrsh
berg agree that If disagreeable ef
fects are felt from watching pic
ture plays It Is a sign that there Is
something wrong with the eyes and
a specialist had better bo consulted
Dr. Hlrshberg Is authority for
tho statement that the pictures
frequently do a great deal of good
in bringing theso defects forcibly
to tho attention of the person hav
ing them, and thus securing proper
attention before the disease or
weakness has progressed so far
that it will permanently Injure the

and frequency than the parts played
by human beings.
The reason being that a perfectly
good pie, covered with meringue,
would add nothing at all to the com
edy If It was thrown and failed to
land on the countenance of one of
the actors. Hence, It is necessary
to train the actors to throw the pie
accurately for each film and some
times much practice Is required.
Even the great Walter Johnson
is compelled to warm up before a
baseball game, and why, Inquires
Terry, should It be strange, there
fore, that a pie pitcher whoso con
trot Is his entire nsset, should be
compelled to put over a few prac
tice custards or lemon creams In
order that ho might locate the er

Sequel to "Diamond From Sky."
A sequel has been written to the
famous serial story published In
The Times, "The Diamond From the
Sky," for which an unknown author
received $10,000 the same price that
was paid for tho original story.
The sequel Is In but four parts,
however. It will be produced In film
form by the American company,
with Charlotte Burton and William
Russell playing the same narta they
played in the original story.
The sequel, like the original, Is a
prize story. Roy McCordell wrote
the original story, thereby winning
a $10,000 prize. The author of the
sequel will not bo made known until
the fourth and last installment of
the film version Is presented.
