MAY B1FOUGH1 Move to Scale Down Some of Unprofitable T.cases C.onlcmplaled ftJiHU-d 1'rcun T.ciiHcil Win') N10VV TOHK, Jan. :!S.— A move to scale, down unprofitable theater leases In a score, of cities was predicted today us a result of the appointment of receivers for Paramount Publlx Corporation, one of the largest producers and distributers of films.

JteiHibtlean national com- mltleeman, were, appointed receivers In equity for the parent corporation last night by Federal Judge William l.ioiuly. Publlx Rnlerpriscs earlier had entered a Voluntary petition of luinlt- ruplcy, and the Irving Trust Company was named as its receiver. Seek Changes Tn several recent receiverships .of corporations operating chains of stores, observers pointed out, the. receivers have been able to arrange favorable changes In terms of long leases which could not be achieved by the corporations directly. It. was believed similar tactics would ho followed In all cities In which Publlx Enterprises owns theater leases. An explanatory statement issued by tho Paramount directors said In part: Statement to Public "Tho corporation lias earnestly striven to obtain voluntary adjustment of rental and other fixed charges and has taken advantage of every available means of attempting to maintain a ratio between fixed charges and receipts approximating that which existed In recent and more prosperous years. , . . Constructive and helpful though these efforts have been, they have been precluded from attaining their ultimate end by the prolongation and acuteness of the depression." Production cost of pictures and salaries of players have been lowered, tho statement wild, but economies failed to compensate for tho decrease In both domestic and foreign revenues brought about by the depression. $166,000,000 Assets Paramount Publlx listed assets of $106,000,000. It consented to the equity receivership petition brought by Uroadway Twentieth Properties, Tn< % ., a California corporation to which Paramount Pnbllx owed $29,16(5.
