YARD OF KISS IS ENOUGH
And It Must Not Last Longer Than
Thirty-six Seconds, 13 Decision
of Movie Censor.
Mrs. Cyrus Niver, the only woman
member of the Pennsylvania state
moving picture censorship board, has
come to the conclusion that one yard
of film Is long enough for any kiss,
after several weeks spent here in
passing on thousands of yards of love love-drama
drama love-drama films.
Love scenes and historic romance,
thrilling escapes and runaways, har-
rowing deathbed repentances and wild
elopements, the excess of poverty and
the extreme of wealth, all pass in re review
view review before her. She judges each film
from the viewpoint of adolescence.
Will it harm the child? What ef effect
fect effect will it have on the grown boy or
girl? These are the questions Mrs.
Niver asks herself.
- She has sat through yards and
yards of kisses of every variety, and
her ultimatum, after watching an em embrace
brace embrace which occupied five yard3 of
film, was that four yards should be
eliminated and that the young people
should be torn from each other after
36 seconds of osculation.
Great is the chautauqua. Only those
who keep in touch with the small
town and rural conditions can appre appreciate
ciate appreciate bow great is this highly modern
movement, how widely it has spread,
how Intensively Its promoters are cul cultivating
tivating cultivating the territory, how edifying
and uplifting and soul-satisfying it has
become. Even to the student of the
chautauqua it is surprising tj find that
nowadays the town of 1,200 to 1,500
population is regarded as "backward"
unless it holds a chautauqua assembly
in the course of the summer, with four
or five days of oratory, music, lec lectures,
tures, lectures, humorous entertainments and
classes for instruction along various
lines, This year a considerable num number
ber number of the smaller towns in Missouri,
to mention but one state, are to be
initiated into the chautauqua order.
Next year other towns, catching the
happy infection, will fall into line.
Until times comparatively recent
the ordinary town relied chiefly for
its public entertainment upon the
Fourth of July oration delivered by
some politician of more or less note,
who poured forth spread-eagle pyro pyrotechnics
technics pyrotechnics from the lofty height of a
plank rostrum built for the occasion
in the picnic grove and was heard
only by the graybeards, while the
younger element was popping fire firecrackers,
crackers, firecrackers, drinking pink lemonade,
dancing the pre-tango steps on a rough
board platform under the trees, and
otherwise diverting themselves so
that they might miss the agony of
hearing the Declaration of Indepen
dence read monotonously by the town
clerk or the high school principal. The
old-time Independence day oration
still is heard here and there, but the

"What sort of man makes the best

given to answering that question, has
recently reconsidered and changed
the standards by which men are as assigned

There are men whose trunk and
shoulders first strike the eye. They
are the "upper" men. Broad shoul shoulders

into dashing dragoons. But it is now
realized that on horseback they are
top-heavy, and keep their eeat with
the spurs. Therefore they are sent
to the infantry. Thanks to their
long, broad backs, they can carry the
heavy load of the foot soldier, and
their short legs make them quick
marchers. Very strong "upper" men
go to the artillery, where great
weights have to be lifted as well as
The "middle" men have fairly short
trunks and well-proportioned legs with
large hips. That brings' the center

they are put on horseback. The

they have some use for spoons. Con-sul-General

market in China. Before the Standard
invaded China with its 7-cent lamps
the Chinese had little artificial light
