The Conservation Department of Indiana, which is in effect, the housekeeping! department of the state's resources, points out today for the Desklamp a few of the ways in which intensified development of Indiana's natural resources and intensified conservation of others might bring millions of dolars in return to the people. For example: Miss Nettie Hucklemayer is for Miller & Haas. Fifty billion tons of coal underlie Breese, and the picture has had the advantage of the directorial genius of Ralph Ince, who personally supervised the filming of the play. The cast for the production was selected from the wide field that only Broadway can present to the casting director of a photoplay. The characters were all outlined and studied with a view to fitting the individual player to the essential parts and there were seven roles that demanded most intelligent interpretation in order that the story might be visualized efficiently. When the cast was completed it was found that there was a very desirable blend of both talent and "names" in the assemblage names that are known to "fans" the country over. Harry T. Morey, who has been a screen star for years, and Kathlyn Williams, one of the best known women in pictures, interpret the leading roles. Matt Moore and Faire Binney contribute the love interest, while Grace Valentine and Roland Bottomley are more advanturers than "villians" in providing; a counter-motive that is said to invest the plot with its "surprise" angles. Margaret Sedden plays the role of an old-fashioned mother who finds herself bewiltered in the swirl of events that engulf her family. resources human, created and nat-falty go with the leaving.

It has long been the fashion at colleges and schools to take a census of graduating classes to determine such vital facts as these: What is your favorite flower? IIow tall are you? Do you smoke? Are you a prohibitionist? At a girl's seminary a recent Inquiry was more sweeping. To the interrogation, "Do you swear?- 200 of the 215 girls answered yes. But admitting that they swear ls not proof that these feminine Hps do utter oaths. So at least says the law in New York state, writes "Griant" in the Philadelphia Press. "Four or five people must hear you swear, not a second or two, but for about five minutes that's the law in North Carolina. "Down in Alabama they don't expect a man to swear from the housetops, but the law says that if three or four persons hear you just once, goodnight I "In Tennessee it is not necessary to repeat the offensive words when a culprit is indicted for swearing.

Only 26,500,000 tons now are mined annually. Nine million tons of mineable coal lie under the waters of the Wabash River, in the vicinity of Vigo County alone. The honey-bees in Indiana last year put $2,500,000 in the pockets of their Hoosier owners a sum which rains would have washed away but for the very slight attention paid to this industry in Indiana. Additional millions are waiting to be made by apiarists.

It would appear from even these few examples of potential Hoosier wealth that the state might intensify its own development even before it seeks to enlarge its contact. State Obeying just the laws we like, and scorning the rest, even "on principle," is mere anarchy. It is not American. Mr. Gompers attitude cannot be too sternly and severely blamed. But those who blame him should search their hearts to see if they ever do the same thingv We must not call the doctrine "Gomperism" until we have made certain that it might not be called by the name of some other respectable gentleman or gentlemen.

Its theme has the awe-inspiring appeal of a glimpse into eternity; in treatment it is majestic, as a work of art it attains to the height of grandeur. Nothing approaching it has ever been offered to the public. Never has the cinema delivered a more eloquent message. Never has the screen reflected an artistic triumph of more significant proportions.
