CinemaScope and 3-D have added to the popularity ol the modern day films. But with expanding progress in the production and aiming of the pictures, llic motion piety re industry is slipping concerning the morality o[ some of the latter films releases. The pictures arc- bigger but not better. A short t i m e ago some d a t a was received on (he new f i l m , "The Krcnuli Line." This f i l m is strongly condemned by the Legion of Decency and by the members of the motion picture industry itself. The Breen office, which enforces the code of ethics, refused to give it the seal of approval. "The French Line" is of low morality content. U is up to us to keep siicli movies out of our comm u n i t y . If we let the managers of our local theaters know how we feel about such movies we can help prevent the release of such indecent films as "The French Line." Now is the time to act when these films are being released not later when they have invaded the public. Last .summer, "The Moon Is Blue" was shown. M a n y did not realize its low rating. Are we going to be drawn into (he same trap t h a t was so s k i l l f u l l y set for us as before? The work of doing a w a y w i t h this type of films is not for tflic or for one group. As a good citizen do your part. The entire c o m m u n i t y must unite to keep improper pictures off the screens. Get your organization behind this move. Let the box office know how we feel. We w a n t a good, clean America that can withstand all wrong. We want to keep wrong from our screen. You, too, want a good, strong America. Stay away from movies t h a t arc condemned!

Buses offer good transportation for some, cabs for others .and cars for still others'. Some SJites have their own cars, and some drive their parents'. But cars aren't always such a reliable source of transportation, as Mary Jean Cornelius discovers after her embarrassing experience of being stalled on 1st Street. Walking seems to be the surest way of getting to school in some cases. With cars, buses, cabs or walking, the students make an effort to be in school on time. Well, at least, most of the time.--E.
