Film Flashes It you feel all "fagged-out" and don't care whother school keeps or not, take fjve minutes off and go and see C. W. Taylor, local manager of the General Film company. We'll gamble with you that you will feel a lot different. TJie reason is that he Is so full of "pep" that you can't talk to him without feeling the same way. For one thing he is all smiles on account of his new office at 1508 Howard street. He was forced to move, owing to the increased business which he Is enjoying, and to further facilitate a number of new plans brought to light during a recent visit to the head office at Chicago. In addition to the one, two and three reel subjects that have been released In the past, there will be the biggest of fea tures comprising as many as twelve reels. The first of these auper-features has been announced and It will be Rex Beach'i widely read and much discussed story, "The Barrier," Mr. Taylor says that this Is Just a beginner of the things which will bo released. Another Important announce ment Is that the General Film company has been chosen to release the official French government -made pictures of the European war. They are the only pictures permitted to be taken on the battle fronts. They are uncensored, and it ts claimed that many camera men lost their lives In the taking of them. One thing of special in terest is a big cannon called "The Mother." which shoots twelve miles, and costs the French government SHOO for each shot fired. These war pictures will be released In two reel lengths for sven wctka. and the en tire gross profits of the rental for them will be given to deserving war relief funds. Wil liam K. Vanderbilt and the Morgan inter ests are behind these pictures, and thrlr authentlcness is vouched for by them. t Is rumored that DouRlas Fairbanks, re cently employed by the Fine Arts-Triangle company, has been signed lor a years con tract by the Arters ft Film corporation. This, aceordlnn to sources whose reliability is said to be above question. This Company Is now releasing pictures In which Mary Plckford and George M. Cohen are starred. It ia reported that Fairbanks will receive only ItS.Oflft (yes. you read It right), per week-for his sorvlees. If this Is true hts salary for the year would only be 1780,000.

Always alert and keen about protecting the man she loves, littte "Jerry" in "A Wife by Proxy" wins sympathy, admiration, stirs the heart. The scheming of the adventuress is well planned, and her purpose and that of her partner in crime, while evi. dent to the audience, is not known by "Jerry" and young Burbank until it has advanced to a degree that makes "Jerry's" task to thwart it al most a hopeless one. But with dogged determination and ready wit "Jerry" bravely makes tie sacrifice that is demanded of her, and the scheming of the adventuress is thwarted. Unlike the ordinary prob lems, which confront the newly ar rived immigrant, that which Jerry has to solve is one laid in the home where she is living and concerns the welfare of her employer for whom she holds a secret and powerful love.
