FRANCIS LEDERER J O A H B E N N E T T CHARLIE RUGGLES FRANK LAWTOM JUNE WYITT AimrvnsAi now -NOW- NEW YORK --(UP)-- Engaged in the business of entertaining the American masses for some 30 years, the time finally Is here, it would seem, when the American motion picture industry is-pausing to turn upon the formal education of American youth. The Industry today credits Cecil B. DeMille with Initiative In a direction for years appreciated by the Carnegie Institute and scores or other Individuals and organizations philanthropically disposed to the promotion of scholarly achievements. There are some 15,308,100 students attending public high schools in the United States today. And there are approximately 341,000 students In private and parochial high schools throughout the country. How many of them will be in a position when the time arrives to finance a career through college? Relatively only a small percentage, educators agree. Fully 200,000 of some 000,000 men and women attending colleges In this country today are faced with the job of meeting costly tuition during their junior and senior years. DcMille, who Is widely credited with doing more than any other Individual In furthering the art of the motion picture on the screen, has by this very endeavor been brought into intimate contact with the practical educational needs of this country. It largely was because of this that DcMlllc. in order to aid the student of the Jand, offered three scholarships -- the first to come from the film Industry--to writers of the three best essays on Cleopatra. The results have been sufficient to cause DeMille and Paramount Pictures, with which he Is associated as a producer, to consider seriously now the perpetuation of such scholarships. BOOK VENTURE RESULTSHOWN Reading Room And Deposit Stations Used In Project The rending rcom and · deposit station project conducted under the direction of the Carnegie free library of Ogden, grew out of an expansion program formulated by the library In the effort to bring books to those living In rural communities, and to co-operate with the relief and governmental agencies in their desire to assist families and individuals to rehabilitate and reestablish themselves. The project provided for the establishment of a public reading room and four deposit stations located In the four farthest sections of the county. The reading room was opened on Twenty-fifth street on December twentieth with a collection of approximately two hundred volumes selected for their popular and entertaining nature. Popular magazines, The Ogden Standard - Examiner and papers from the larger centers throughout the United States are placed there daily. Puzzles and games are also available. Special requests for material have been encouraged and as a result books on the history of ,hc World war, the history of Chris- :ianity, the essays of Bacon and Schopenhauer, Roslcrucian texts, and books on many other subjects have been supplied. This room Is open from twelve noon until nine p. m. p daily. The services of two at- endants arc required. 7008 persons have visited this room to date. The deposit stations opened at North Ogden, Huntsvllle, Hooper and Burch Creek were closed on tfay 3. A reduction In the FERA funds necessitated this action, al- hough It had been planned to close hese points simultaneously with the IVcber county schools, as these sta- lons were housed In school bulld- ngs. The reading room, located at 52 Twenty-fifth street will remain open so long as relief funds arc available. The number of persons registered ollows: Burch Creek. 133; North Ogden, 83; Hooper, 335; Huntsvillc, 201; Ulntah (open one afternoon a week during April), 78. Total number. 096. The number of books circulated for home use was: Burch Creek 1023; North Ogden, 1170; Hooper, 1081; Huntsville, 785; Ulntah, 168; Twenty-fifth street, 653. Total 668D. Some 1455 books belonging to the Latter-Day Saints church and the Weber county board of education were distributed under the direction of the attendant at North Ogden and Hooper. Considering the short length of time allowed for the successful working out of plans and the limited number of books available for distribution, this Is held a remarkable record, and Is illustrative of the need for the permanent establishment of library service In Weber county. Up to date this project has furnished 4590 hours of employment, involving the services of eight people at all times, and has provided for the material as well as for the spiritual and intellectual need of the people of this county. Residents of the county arc urged to continue to use their borrowers cards at the main library and avail themselves of the opportunity of procuring books for the entire family.
