Like the policeman the photographer is often
I There he Isnt wanted and lile the poor he Is always i j

against every man and only a few years ago every
mans hand was lifted against him But lime works
a change of front The philosophy of yesterdays

and so It is with the man who takes tho pictures

Schwab when he was answering question on the
Shipbuilding Trust

room was the problem It couldnt be dono with u
small camera and as the policeman guarding the door
hud orders not to allow any cameras Inside how could
they pans In a reflex box say nine Inches wide nine
Inches deep and fourteen Inches long Besides there
would have to be a flash powder explosion for the
light and after that how could they escape with the
plate
The two men set out for the Mail and Express
Building when court was In session one with the
camera under nn overcoat the other with tho flash
pan and powder Walking close together and screen
Ing the camora with theIr two overcoats the men I
safely passed the outside guard The man with the
cuneia then took a scat iu the second row of specta
tors chairs toward which Mr Schwab on the stand
fifteen feet away was facing An explanation of
the situation to a man in the seat ahead enlisted his
aid and he promised to move aside at a signal The
second expert now stood nearer the door perhaps
twentyflve feet from the camera and from Mr
Schwab
At n noel from the photographer tho other raised his
hand far above his head and Hashed his blinding
white flame from which shot up half a roomful of
smoke

relaxed in a smile
