AGENT SAYS THEY GET NEW FILMS (Continued from front page) is truthful. If any newspaper wants to accord a large amount of gratui tous publicity to our enterprises it is welcome to do so as long as it con fines itself to the facts. On the oth er hand, if it indulges in misrepresen tation because of our failure to buy advertising from it which we do not need, we are prepared to take care of ourselves—in the courts if neces sary. Facts Distored. 4 ® A few of the facts in the case— facts that have been greatly distorted, to fit the desires of those who seek ! to injure us in the upblic's mind are ! these : I "That no old pictures are being j shown by the Saenger theatres—-ex cept those who merit justices a re turn. With such returns we have mer ited and received such suport as is I accorded a return of Sarah Bernhardt f or instance, films we were so ridiculously charged w it hbarring from this city. He is still Not as many as ten old pictures have been shown in our thea tres in the last year. "Charlie Chaplin is not yet making pictures for the United Artists, whose making them for the First National Exhibitors, and we are showing them all. Mary Pickford has delivered only one picture to the new association, and Douglas Fairbanks' latest picture was shown by us. D. W. Griffith has delivered only one picture to. the new association. Pictures, not yet made—which we are accused of barring from the city— can certainly be shown by any of the so-called independent theatres on Canal street, or any street—the Pearce theatre, for instance, when they are ready. We certainly have no objec tion. it a "What the Saenger Amusement Company does object to, however, is ! lending itself to an arrangement j which would result in the boosting of ! admission prices to all suburban the atres from 17 to 50 and 75 cents. That is what the exxess rate for United Artists pictures would mean for New Orleans under the first proposal. As it is, the suburban theatres in New Orleans are charging less admission than in any other city in the country. If this statement is doubted by any ; one they can step to a universal news stand and verify it by looking up the ads in the newspapers of other cities. On the Pacific Coast the admission charge at suburban houses is from 25 cents to 75 cents for the same class of pictures we show for 17 cents. PRICE HALF THAT IN N. Y. "The admission price of the Strand hteatre here is one-half the price of admission charged by the Rivoli, Strand, Capital and Rialto theatres in New York and the program and pictures are identical. Our theatres are filled, and our advertising is sufficient to fill them. We operate on a volume basis— buy in big quantities at lowest terms and exhibit the best for the lowest admission price. That's the corner stone of Saenger success and that's really what has worried some people into seeking this airing of our affairs before the trade commission. We're glad of it: we did not realize our own strength until we heard the howl. After the recent exhibition I an ticipate considerable effort to discre dit our company either through cen sorship or otherwise. We will ap preciate the public's investigating purported facts in obviously prejudic ed publications. AMUSING SIDE SEEN TO ANTI SAENGER STORIES. Says a memo from the Item's mo tion picture editor: asked me for my opinion, for those anti-Saenger articles were about the funiest thing I've seen—aside from the Chaplin comedy they seek to scorn!" They claim Orleanians are not get ting the best pictures and seek to prove it by press-agenting a lot of films not yet completed." Acouple weeks ago William R. Brady, a real authority on pictures, gave a statement to the Motion Pic ture News naming the best pictures of the season. He mentioned none of his own; none in which his daughter, Alice, appeared—so, his opinion is worthy. He gave as his selection 'The Miracle Man,' 'Eyes of Youth', 'Sol diers o fFortune,' and 'Twenty-three and One-Half Hours Leave.' All of the pictures have been in New Orleans—and all at Saenger houses. It is common gossip that when the last Fairbanks picture showed at the Strand it lost money for the Sean gers, even though it played to big houses. The picture cost too much. It would have to play for at least a dol lar a seat to make money. The truth of the matter is, the press agents for these alleged super-films are trying to force somebody in New Orleans to buy their goods. This will force up picture prices here—and the Saengers seem to be fighting to make high grade film entertainment coat us less here than elsewhere." "As to re-runs; right now "The Better Ole" is playing a comeback at the Tulane. It also probably Is true that the Shakesperisn repetoire will play again in New Orleans—so why not bring Cbaplin beck?

ANOTHER RACCOON TALK. "Children," said Mother Raccoon, j "I was going to tell you of a creature you must watch out for—an enemy you must beware of. So listen while Mother Raccoon goes on with her story." The little raccoons listened with their sharp eyes fixed on Mother Rac coon. »As I told you. it is not long now j before you must look out for your selves in the world. You must work for yourselves and for the little ones who will come to you. A Daddy and a Mother Raccoon look after their children for a whole year—then they must look after the new family which comes in the spring. "As the spring : is not so far off now, even though it is still winter. I waut to give you all the advice and help I can, so you'll all live to be fine, big raccooons and make your mother and father and all raccoons proud of you. "There is one enemy you must look out for and that is the weasel. He is a sly fellow, a dangerous fellow, a wild fellow and one to look out for. Never make friends with him. He does not know what friendship with a raccoon means. "I am sure it isn't really necessary to tell you that. But I do want to warn you that you must look out for him and never let him get the better of you. "I'd not be friendly with cats ei ther," Mother Raccoon continued. "1 don't like cats—never have and 1 don't suppose I ever will. "Be brave, my children, be very brave. cowards, but never fight unless you have to fight for your life or for the lives of your little ones. "You can do well in a fight with the sharp claws which Nature gave Yes, It is very well that you Never let any one call you you. can do.

Ah, how he fought to help me and to aav* you ! as "Don't forget what I told you about washing your food before you eat it. I t.h! you that only the other day. Some folks think it's just a habit of ours, that we don't really want to be clean. There may be some rac coons like that, but I can tell you one thing—I've yet to meet them !

"There was once an old raccoon who was very fond of himself. He sat on the top of a high tree which had no leaves, for it was a dead tree, such as we all enjoy when it's resting time. There he sat and dreamed awaj his time and slept and did nothing at all. "He let everyone else wait on him and was very lazy. He was very self ish, too, and didn't want to go to anj trouble for anyone. " T will fare better.' he said. 'II I take m.v life easily and don't gr rushing and scrambling around mak lng a great fuss about working and so forth. I will not work at all.' "Well, he found he didn't have much to eat when he didn't do any thing himself. His raccoon friends and relatives got tired of seeing bin. rest while they worked, and did noi like It because he was so lazy am selfish. "One by one they begun to le.nv« him alone. He sat up on the top liml all by himself. No one came neui him. He had to get down and ge some food after a while, but evei then no one would bother about him He was too selfish. He made every •ne around him unhappy. "*I see.' he said to himself, *tha' Til never have any friends unless I'n friendly and share the work and tht fun—so I won't sit up here any more.

Posf 61, Philadelphia, of the American Region, went to the Pennsylvania state convention in Hhrrisburg with the de sire to have the boy scouts' work offi dally indorsed by the great soldiers and sailors' organization, The following resolution, introduced by Post 61, was formally adopted by the state cantonment: "Whereas, The Boy Scouts of Amer ica have deserved the commendation of the country at large for their activ ities iu the numerous loan drives, War every way whatsoever, !

It was celebrated re cently in memory of the boy scouts of the Italian army who had done mes senger service at the front and were killed in action. The altar used for the service was one which had been- carried by the Italian armies through many cam paigns in the Alps and was placed in the west end of the coliseum. The i service was presided over by Monsig nor Bertoloraasi, who held the rank ot j general in the Italian army, being the chief chaplain to the Italian forces. The immense ruin of pagan days was filled with people. Detachments of boy scouts occupied the central part of the building, a place in pagan days used for the arena. After the mass Monsignor Bertolo- | masi delivered a stirring sermon in ! vchich he drew attention to the change in human thought which was able to convert this pagan amphitheater into a Christian temple. SCOUT SAVES INJURED BOY. While 55 scouts from Council Bluffs, Ta., were on a hike a boy came run ning into camp crying out that he had shot his companion, Loren Davidson. Five scouts were detailed, and left on a run for the scene of the accident, a mile away. They used first aid, two of them applying a tourniquet and dressing his back, while two others made a stretcher and the fifth sped away to bring a doctor to the camp. The trip with the wounded boy on the stretcher was made in 35 minutes. At the camp a bed had been made of blankets. phoned the hospital to have the oper When thp doctor came he said that If the scouts had been 15 minutes later in finding the injured boy and giving him aid he would have died. Another scout had tele atiîlg ready. i uuîB The scouts sent a bouquet of flowers ; to the patient, an! on hearing how very serious the case was, they asked permission to hire a trained nurse for : a week. j j !
