ART EDITORS ELEANOR POUND LEANORE ALLEN BURR ART CLASS Qui' .-Xrt editors this year, Eleanor Pound and Leanore Allen, pictured in the window. did their best and well succeeded in explaining to you by their magic hands the life of the' stars and scenes in a studio. The composite pages furnished an oppor- tunity to the Burr artists to put something before the eyes of their public. Seymour Slosburg starred when his magic hands produced the sport cartoons. Ruth Dreusike, Louise Mitchel, and Leanore Allen deserve praise for the pages of comedians, VVill Rogers' Memorial and Backstage respectively. Each and every artist had his chance and there weren't very many "extras.', The Art Class wishes to take this opportunity to thank the studios which were so kind in allowing them to visit the lots and departments. VVhile Dorothy Dodge, Louise Mitchell, Ruth Dreusike, and Miss Hughes were visiting Paramount, scenes from the Crusades were being wrecked. Phoebe Gale and Lorraine Murray also visited Paramount and 20th CenturyMlTox, to make SOIHC fine sketches. The very artistic drawings which have always comprised a great deal of the Burr make-up, are done by the Burr Art class. Miss Hughes is the director of this department at the studio. Leanore Allen, Shirley Bulhnch, Miriam Chaikin, Mary Ann Clyburn, Dorothy Dodge, Ruth Dreusike, Phoebe Gale, Rosemary Goodwin, Audrey Graham, Barbara lflitchcoek, Cynthia Mills, Louise Mitchell, Lorraine Murray, Eleanor Pound, Myrtle Rothbill, Shirlev VVells, Lark Woolley, Ted Payne, Ed Schoenwald, Seymour Slosburg, Tom Graham, and Ardelle Smith furnished the art work this year. l

Lf r , I. . .AH A STRONG NET By MARION WIDDICOMBE The motion picture of today offers unusual and diversi-- tied entertainment. lt has woven a net around our lives that would be hard to unravel. Perhaps you can better realize its importance by imagining the world without mov- ing pictures. -. One mighty method of communication would be unheard of. Stage and political personalities would be less widely known. People of each and all races would not have the chance of knowing other than their own customs. Styles and pictorial news would have to Fund other ways of . coming before the public. Gorgeous settings and natural T backgrounds would not be used. Historical events COl1l4l not be recorded. To the child the motion picture offers an hour or two of entertainment. The youth finds a place to take his girl for the evening. Mother may go to see her favorite actress, and father enjoys the news. XVhat do you go for? The common idea of the motion picture being solely a place to spend time is decidedly misleading. There is always some main purpose the producer or director is trying to put before the public. In many cases there is an overemphasis on 'thc story. the acting or possibly on luxury or poverty. This is harmful to the average person. Pictures are extremely influential. lnaccuracy of a picture provides a loop- hole where a person not acquainted with the truth might change to follow the untruth. "'When I think of a world without movies I see the peoples of the earth dc- prived of a great educational source and I pity the millions who have found surccasc from care in their flickering twilight," says .lohn gl. Floherty. NTOTTON PICTURES CHANGE MANNIZRS By PAUL sms Little did Edison, Morey and the other inventors of the forerunners of the modern motion picture equipment realize that their first "flickies" were to develop into the sixth largest industry in the United States. Probably the germ of the present- day Umoviesi' was the zeotrope invented in 1333 known as the "VVheel of Lifef' which in a hallow drum, a series of pictures were placed and revolved. It appeared when whirled to the spectators who looked through a hole in the drum as if an object moved. To every person who observes a present-day motion picture, it will give to his mind an idea, probably a new and different idea which may cause him to change his ways and his manners as to resemble some character of the play. Motion Pictures probably have done more to improve the manners of the people and to educate them generally than all the other channels of education. The great historical plays which were recently displayed to the eyes of the public clear up for many the hazy spots in history. Thus during so short a period as two hours, there has passed before our eyes a panaroma of many years of history. Long before you would see a football stadium in a small town, you would see a motion picture theater. liven "dark- est" Africa is learning of European and American customs through moving pictures. .ln this country the 325,000 peo- ple who are connected with motion pictures, whether a star or an extra have their own big or little part to play which makes the wheels go round in this great and still growing Motion Picture lndustry.

The director of this group is Mr. Taylor. well known to you as the instructor of print shop, The many years that Mr. Taylor has worked for our studio will go down in the history of John Burroughs. VVork on the newspaper of the lot takes a great part ol' the week and then must be made all of the little programs and paper matter in between. The Burroughs studio is the only one that prints their own script, the only one of the studios that doesn't send out all the necessary printing that must be done.
