ed The stampede Saturday night offered
,od the first real test for the automatio
doors which Mr. Foto had Installed
in ,more than a year ago. These doors
fed are so arranged with cross bars that
anyone leaning against them releases
the doors and they immediately swing
out. On account of Saturday night
se, being cool, all of the exits were
es closed, and just the minute the ex
he, plosion occurred every exit in the
ay- theatre was at once opened by the
yr- crowd, and the theatre could have
or- been emptied in less than a minute's
er time, but many of the cool heads, who
stopped just a few seconds to take
ey, in the situation, remained In their
il- seats in subjection to the commands
er. of those who stood up and asked the
iez audience to be seated.
len This incident of Saturday night
proves most conclusively that the
,? Folly Theatre is absolutely safe in
r, case of fire. Even though the entire
roof were ablaze, or should there be a
nd fire next door, or even the rear of
the building afire, there would be
on. plenty of timne for every person who
nd had standing room in the theatre to
get out safely or the theatre emptied
ny. I three times before there could be any
uis danger from the fire. But. like all
lo- other stampedes of this kind, the
danger does not lie from the effects
of the fire, but usually from the cow
gh. ards or those of an excitable nature,
len who do not stop to think and rush
ean along to safety without consideration
for their fellow-men.
