I i :isn- '? i,G'f"" A leilrl-Sl - lllli i. u mm Q .i.i.l..i l.u..a..l.i.l.l Motion Picture of ltlducationeCozzfzkmea' when it is wanted. The commercially operated distribut- ing point will not meet the conditions because the fees while not unreasonable from the dist ributor's standpoint, when added to express and insurartce make it impossible l'or our schools to use the material with the limited l'unds at hand. The only solution to this question, as l see it, is to establish a State Bureau ol' Visual Instruc- tion where thousands ol' Iilins and slides, all catalogued like hooks in a library. are available. Then. a local Bu- reau should lie established in every city in connection with the public schools consisting ot' lilms and slides owned by the lioard til' l'lducation. There may be other ways ol' solving this dilliculty but this is my personal view as l'ormed l'rom my experience with the moving picture as a part ol' our school equipment. l should say here that we do not experience in the lligh School any other difliculties because our Board of liducation has provided a splendid lantern and has au- thorized the Superintendent to secure lilms ol' an edu- cational and religious nature, or any other lilms which he considers ol' value to the school. The Board of Educa- tion will take care ol' the expense il' it can not be cared t'or out ol' the liecture t'ourse Fund, or any other avail- able funds. Now, it remains to point out the possibilities, or the application til' the motion picture to school work. lilo the practical teacher the subject ot' geography presents itsell'. 'l'he motion picture can show not only the physical characteristics ol' the various parts ol' the world but also the activities ol' the people. Undoubtedly it opens a tield in this subject so broad and comprehensive that we can not see its limits. The picture which we se- cured t'roni the l"ruit Dispatch Company, New York City. through the courtesy ol' Mr. li. A. Schumacher, an alum- nus ol' our lligh School, showed the growing and market- ing ol' bananas and presented points along those lines which we never get from the mere study ol' the text. lt is possible to show a trip to South America which takes a form ol' a climb in the Andes, a visit to some of the great volcanoes, and a trip to Quito, the city ot' the equator, 5l,2l5ti feet up in the air. Also, students may be taken to Argentine showing the harvest lields, and fa- mous cattle ol' that region. lt is possible lor the pupil to see Niagara l"alls just as the observer who stands on the bank sees them. The students in the great agricultural regions ol' our country can witness the great steamship leaving the seaports ot' our country and also see the activity ol' our large cities, whereas the child in our large cities, who is familiar with these scenes, can in turn view the waving wheat lields and the giant harvest and threshing machines which are so common a sight to the children ol' the great agricultural regions. ln history much can be done in adding interest and reality to the study ol' great historical events, Many im- portant incidents can be and are being reproduced, as: the Landing til' the l'ilgrims, the Boston Tea Party, the lylidnight Ride ol' Paul Revere, the Slave Auction, the liattle til' tlettysliurg, t'hickamauga, and Chattanooga, The "Winners ol' the West" composed of eighteen episodes ol' two reels each is an accurate historical picture et great value. The subject matter is the famous expedi- tion ol' .l. C. l"remoi.t in the days of the gold rush. 'there is practically no limit to what can be done in iature study. All that the biologist, hotanist, or chemist sees under the microscope can be thrown on the screen and thus the child is enabled to see all that the special- ist sees even though he can not understand the full ineanirg ol' all that he sees. . ln Physics and Chemistry, there is also practically no limit. Lessons in liquid air, asphyxiating gases, car- bonic g'as, electrolysis ol' metals, etc., can be given by the inoviitg picture with as great a degree of accuracy as in the laboratory. There is not much doubt either that the student with sufticient previous knowledge can derive equal benelit. Many industrial lilms are available and many are in the process ol' preparation. Here is another means ot' broadening and enriching the child's fund of knowledge, for a personal visit to all of these various institutions is practically impossible. By means ol' the moving picture the activities of these institutions are brought to the pupils. Civics otl'ers another tield. The operations ot' tire de- partments, police departments, street-cleaning depart- ments, and other divisions of the city organization are easily shown. Many of the activities of the national gov- ernment such as the post-oflice department, the mint, etc.. can be easily represented. Physiology and hygiene offer inviting possibilities, lVledical colleges are using the motion picture to a great extent. It would seem that lifty or one hundred tilms might accomplish more than mere text book work could ever hope to do. For literature, there are a good many tilms available. Nlany ot' the masterpieces of literature studied in our High Schools have been dramatized and acted by eminent artists for the moving picture camera and may be se- cured for use in our schools. For moral and religious development there is a large and important lield, ln more towards uplifting could do in many talks one picture we are able to do and transforming life than we or classroom lessons. To secure the right kind ot p'ctures is our problem. Many so classi- lied do not tend in that direction strong enough to amount to much. The Stream ol' l,it'e, By their Fruits, and A lVlodern Ruth, are no doubt the best pictures which we have shown. Under the head ol' history and literature we are able to secure pictures which have a wholesome moral effect. The possibilities ot' the moving picture can not be ineasured. I have only pointed out a few of the things which can be done provided, ot' course, that the tilms are properly catalogued at a central bureau. Let me say this in conclusion that "seeing is believ- ing" and since we trust the evidence furnished our mind hy our eyes, the moving picture has made it possible to utilize this confidence in an educational vrav to the greatest possible extent.
