"He should, have further added -; that scenario writers should be heard and not seen;" t ' It was diminutive and. wise Anita J Loos, noted photo-dramatist,, lectur- scattered throughout the United States and Canada the other 'night on how to master the art of scenario . . writing. - Anita was talking into the trans- - mitter of WJZ, the Westingliouse ) Electric company's broadcasting sta tion at Newark, New Jersey. - es of the talk at Chicago, Constance .

For Connie, like Anita, is a wire- Mesa fan nnd has not been a tit lonely since making Los Angeles her producing headquarters, because she has a little radiophone in her Toom, which brings" the whole world crowd- ing into her white stucco home by the mere setting of a 'dial and the turning of a switch. Be her mood whatever it may, the wireless telephone is as resp'onsive as . a needle to a magnet. Sometimes it is grand opera, with the incompara ble strains of "Madame Butterfly" - filling the room. Yet again it is a V chatty little talk to a friend a thous and miles away. And another time it! may be the jazziest kind of jazz con cert. ' -' ' In her talk from Newark to the wireless fans, Miss Loos, who also has a radio set in her home, gave some pointers on scenario writing and told how she herself, had had a disheartening struggle before she at tained success, finally reaching the peak of achievement with the Con stance Talmadge comedies. She de nied that only genius could succeed at photoplay 'writing, declaring: "Surely among the 200,000 people who, the operators tell us, will get this message, is at least one who is i going to do big things in the movie world. He or she, is the person who is going to take scenario writing as a serious profession, who realizezsthat - this embryo writer or, we hope, writers, that I'm going to talk.

They' lack wha play wrights call 'suspense'; there is no real dramatic conflict between op posing elements. There are plots which make splendid ngvels or short stories, but which would never do for stage or screen because they ara not of the dramatic type.
