Before be was an actor, William Duncan was an athletic Instructor aad a
writer for physical culture magazines. He first appeared on the stage with
Sandow, the strong man, and later toured the country at the head of his own
dramatic company playing Hamlet. Today he Is known throughout the world
as a serial star and director. Upon completing "Smashing Barriers" Albert •.
Smith, president of Vitagrapb, furnished Mr. Duncan with a serial the produc
tion of which will cost $1,000,000.
"The Silent Avenger" Is the title of the new serial. It was written by
Albert E. Smith and Cleveland Moffett In this Mr. Duncan Is given ample
opportunity to show his skill as a fancy shot pool player, expert on the ten
nis court and clever slight of hand performer. The thrills provide the star
director with material in which to demonstrate his strength and ability as an
all-round athlete. He Insists on realism and will assume great risks to stage
a thrill as It should be performed. He will not use dummies or substitutes,
is in the script, Mr. Duncan insists that it can be performed
and he does It regardless of the hazard.
His leading lady, Edith Johnson, Is equally courageous and follows Wil

Bummed up their observations for the
benefit of the organizations that are
trying to increase the Interest in good
Results of Army Truck Trips.
The following are their recommenda
"First.—That the necessity for a
comprehensive system of national high
ways, Including transcontinental or
through routes east ond west, and
north and south, Is reul and urgent, as
a commercial asset to further col
onize and develop the sparsely settled
sections of the country, and. finally
as a defensive military necessity.
"Second.—Thut the existing roads I
and bridges, especially In the sparsely
settled sections of the middle and
far western states, are absolutely In
capable of meeting the present day,
traffic requirements, and until mod*
ern types of roads and bridges are
constructed which will permit the rap
Id movement of heavy motor cargo
vehicles during any season of the year
and in all conditions of weather, eco
nomical transcontinental highway traf
fic will continue to be but a vain hope.
"Third.—Thut the road problems of
the middle and far western states are
national rather than local problems,
as these slates, while possessing vast
urea mul tremendous mileage of high
ways, have only a sparse population
which cannot possibly undertake the
needed highway improvement work,
which moreover, Is usually of greater
Importance to the country as a whola
thun to the Indivldiml states.
"Fourth.—That the radius of action
and resulting utility valoe of the mo
tor vehicle Is limited only by the
condition of the rouds, and that the
provision of adequate roads will have
far reaching effect on the economic
development of the country at large.
"Fifth.—That the types of motor
vehicles, especially those used by the
shny, should be co-ordinated with the
road conditions. In other words, un
til such time as all sections of the
country ore connected by Improved
highways that are passuble to heavy
otor vehicle truffle at all seasons of
to year, the size and weight of ve-
cles should be limited to types Of
and medium capacities."
