Some State* Censor All Reel*. Washington.—Sixteen million persons daily attend the 18,000 moving picture theaters now In operation in the Unit ed States. A large proportion of the patrons are children. There are ap proximately 20,000,000 school children in the United States. The attendance of the picture shows therefore repre sents four-flfths of the daily enrollment of the public schools and far exceeds that reported by churches, libraries and other institutions of human bet terment. These tacts, or what are represented to be facts, were brought out before the house committee on education. The committee has under consideration a bill to establish a federal censorship commission over moving pictures. The measure has strong support, and the chances are that it will be enacted into law at this session of congress. It has been indorsed by clergymen, educators and some moving picture ex hibitors. Other exhibitors oppose it on the ground that dim makers censor their product and that federal censorship would Interfere with the business. An other objection utged against the bill is that Its passage might serve as a precedent for legislation abridging the liberty of the press. Those who voice this objection argue that if the federal government under takes to censor moving pictures it may extend the authority to printed matter Advocates of federal censorship of moving pictures say that these exhibi tions are hurtful or beneficial to the youthful mind according to their char acter. It Is asserted that many crimes have been traced to children who had witnessed debasing scenes in moving picture houses. For this reason It is argued that com petent inspection and effective censor ship of films are needed. The two sides of the story were told In the house committee. "Many parts of moving picture exhi bitions aro perfectly proper," said the Rev. 11. N. Pringle, assistant superin tendent of the international reform bu ream “Other parts may be objection able because they present at times pic tures of murders, robberies, holdups, assaults, burglaries and nearly the whole catalogue of crimes. “Every few days you may see in the newspapers allusions by criminal court Judges to the connection between Juve nile crime and the demoralizing pres entations Just mentioned. This bill proposes the examination and censor ship of picture films' so that tainted and diseased amusement may not lie sent out from about fifty film manufac turing firms and Importing firms to nearly 20,000 moving picture theaters to injure millions of Immature persons who daily see these productions.” W. Stephen Bush of New York, rep resenting a moving picture publication, made a defense of American made moving pictures. "Respect for the ordinary decencies of life characterizes the producers of moving pictures,” he said. "They are to please, not to offend. It Is a fact that the American producers supply not less than 75 per cent of the world's market of moving pictures “No matter where you go In Europe, you will find a strong percentage of each program is made up of pictures made In this country. Why? Because the American pictures with negligible exceptions are clean. "They are made by men whose eyes and cars heed public taste and senti ment and who do not want to eater to any morbid or depraved taste. Now, censorship has been responsible in the countries of Europe for a great de crease in the number of pictures made, and absolutely no good Is accomplished by .tlie censorship such as exists in Russia, Germany and other countries." It 'was brought out that Ohio, Kan sas, Pennsylvania and California exer cise censorships over moving pictures Boards of moving picture censorship >al*d are in operation in many cities, among them New York, San Francises Chicago arid Cleveland. Censorship laws are applied to tire business in England, Germany, Austria, Denmark, - 'a i EAST MISSISSIPPI TIMES, STARKVILLE, MISS. HAS PLAN TO SOLVE FARM LABOR PROBLEM Michigan Mao Taking Census In Aid In Golonizallon. Musing, Mich.—Labor Commissioner fumes Cunningham has started wbat ho thinks will result in the taking of a complete cOnsus of Michigan farm bands. lie is sending out blanks to every supervisor with the request that they be tilled out and returned. The blanks ask for the number of farm bauds employed by the mouth, the average number of mouths they are employed, the average monthly wages, tbe num ber of farms operated by tenants and whether or not there Is .a scarcity of farm help In the district. Some of llio supervisors close to Mnsiug have al ready answered. "We hope If possible to get some data by which wo may be able to start a sort of colonization system which may eventually relieve the farm labor market. “So far we have found that day farm labor is what Is scarce. On the other band, we have reports from some sec tions which show that there are many farms—large ones—which are only par tially sultlvatod. •‘Our plan is to have tbe owners of those large farms cut them np Into small parts and put on them Hun garians and other foreigners who are natural born farmers. Give them space enough to live on and raise enough for their own needs and at the same time guarantee them a certain amount of day work in the vicinity. Wo think in this way we can relievo the prob lem of day farm labor.” Mr. Cunningham has received the co operation of fifty-three county clerics In his plans to have them act as agents for a free employment bureau at their respective county seats. .
