Nowhere is the love story of the screen more popular than among the Swahelis of German East Africa those dusky German soldiers who be came British troops after the con quest of the territory by General Smuts in December. 1917. So says W. P. Stanley, a negro worker sent to serve the native and British soldierB in German East Africa by the national war work council of the Y. M. C. A. in co-operation with the "Y" international com mittee. Mr. Stanley, whose home is in New York cit. has just returned from more than one year's service in the tropics. 6,000 See Film At One. "The Y. M. C. A. cinema theater." Mr. Stanley said, in telling how the movies were brought to the Swaheli soldiers, "was the old German market place in Dares Salaam. We set up the screen in the middle of the hall. The Swahelis would crowd into the place, and by watching the pictures from both sides the screen fully 6,000 could be accommodated. "They delighted in the sentimental pictures, the love stories, if the plot was not too complicated. They woulft chorus exclamations of pleasure when the hero kissed the heroine. Their other favorite among the screen shows was the fairy story film, which, be cause of its simplicity, they could fol low easily. "If at one of these Swaheli picture shows you kept your eyes on the screen you would believe yourself back in America. Every picture was an American film. Probably every one had been shown on Broadway. But a glance at the gelaming eyes in the dark faces of the Swaheli men and the sound of a hyena laughing off in the jungle, would call you back to a reali zation that you were in the Y cinema theater in Dares Salaam." Tommies Hold Debate. Often, Mr. Stanley said, the laugh of the hyena would cut Into the clamor of heated debate. For the Y. M. C. A. organized a debating society among the British troops from the West Indies, and the Tommies would plunge into a melee of talk over some such theme as: "Resolved, That money ia more es sential to sucoess than education." , Three T. M. C. A. canteens were maintained for the Swahelis alono, and Mr. Stanley learned the language, in order to be able to supervise tht natives in charge of them. The tastes of these Africans, he said, were quite unexotic. They relished sardines and salmon, cakes, cheese and candy, quite as much as the average Tommy did Five negro "Y" workers served in German East Africa, and two of them gae their lives in that land where few v. hite men can live a year.
