a magazine writer, three machine

into the wilds of Alaska, where the

tlie result of his tour will revolution-
ize the text book system in public
i schools In this and other countries.
('Iet the film of the moving picture be
i the text book of the future." is his idea,
j and with this in mind, he will snap the
say nothing of the hundreds of species
of the bird family, photographed In
their own haunts; with beautiful wat
er falls and inspiring scenery, repro
duced on canvas with the truthful
ness that only a camera Is capable of.
he believes that the study of natural
history will uike a treat step forward.
The educattc. nal side of the moviuK
picture, Mr. Aylesworth admits, has
been long propounded, but he declares
his scheme is a step to place the the-
! ory to a practical test. Educational-
! are interested in the success of

I prove what is hoped of them, they will

will prepare them for exhibition. It Is
