Movies Can Be Improved by Audience Woman's Club M e m b e r s Hear Talk oil Possibilities of Pictures. "The. dramatic form has been brot into the cbmmoa'knowledge of more people by the moving-- picture than by any other means," Miss Gretchen Steiner of Grinnell college told the Woman's club at the general meeting Tuesday afternoon in the First Methodist church. "The moving pictures have not brot real drama, however, since the movies and drama are two distinctly separate things and should remain so." In a'drama we get a highly magnified moment -in the lives of a group of people. Much is left to the Intellect and the imagination/ In the movies nothing is left. . . . "The movies more closely resemble the novel'because of the detail .Which they' disclose. This is one reason why a nover makes a better film than a play does. "Cimmaron," "The Virginian" and "Show Boat" are good exam pie's'of this. 'Cim- rharon" is beautiful in its fidelity to the novel. , : Recreational Factor. "The movies are a great recreational, factor in our lives but we use no standards to Judge" their motive. The -. mpvie-going -public should develop an individual intelligent censorship of films. Parents * allow their children to attend the mpving pictures week after week without having any idea of wha they are seeing. The movies are created for a moronic . intelligence and the only way hi : which . this standard can be raised is thru the oo-operation of the audiences. If people would get up and walk oui of a theater more often .-because a film displeased them, itf'i's probable that they would not have to attend that sort of film so often. . "Much may be learned from the news reel--not so much from the bathing beauties or the prize fighters, but during the course of one rteel we may visit several different lands. If we observe closely w'e will recognize the differences in : dress, the rhythm of street sounds, the personalities of important personages. Cartoons Good. '"The short subjects may often be Very entertaining. The animated cartoons are particularly good be- they are an example of com- STEINER URGES INTELLIGENT FILM GOERS plete synchronization and because they are often very clever. "Most people go to see the feature film. We want to see Jt because we have read about it or someone said it was gdod'or because some particular star Is in it. When we see a film we .do not- care for most of u s will not adin it it. People do not discuss the movies. If'they did the taste.for jnovies might be changed to something better. . "People almost always go to the movies late and come in.after the feature film has started. They get a wrong impression and cannot judge the picture competently. No one reads a book by starting in the middle, reading thru to the end and then beginning'it. ' Designs Interesting-. "Much can be learned from the designs of the sets and the costumes. When a producer wants a set, he does, not take any ordinary one, but studies the script and evolves a room in which the people in the film would live. A good designer will never- let the room interfere with the play. It should build up the general'impression, but not make a single one itself. "If the costume'is right it aids in the expression of the personality. Marie Dressier in 'Min and B'll' iwas .very well costumed ahd-'she had a part to which she could, give herself and in which she was not over .directed. The ingenue in: the same film was not so well costumed. You know she was the Butterfly about' to emerge from .the chrysalis because her' hair was a little too curly and her clothes a little too fresh. "Ruth Chatterton is always dressed for her part. In "Sarah and Son" altho she progressed from a poor peasant girl · to a wealthy singer her clothes.retained the characteristic of simplicity which was in keeping with her role. Learn About Acting. 'Tf the actor is good, people Jearn something about acting George Arliss epitomizes the art of acting because of the economy of his performance. He never does anything which . interferes with hjs part. He is always sure. The difference between professionals and amateurs can be. recognized by the amount of motion used in portrayal. Charles Chaplin,' the greatest of lantomimists, even in the early pie- throwing days, made, every movement mean something. ! " one of the most exiting contributing factors in pro- uction. -It influences the mood more than any other one' thing. The lighting in most films is beautifully done. "If we want better movies we can have them by intelligent,censorship not so much by a national board as thru individual standards.

EXACT METHOD OF ROASTING COFFEE PERFECTS FLAVOR Controlled Roasting, Patented by Hills Bros., Gives Flavor No Other Coffee Has To sip a cup of Hills Bros. Coffee after drinking other brands is a moat revealing experience. There is a wealth of full-bodied, savory flavor that is almost startling. What's more, it is a different flavor. The way Hills Bros. Coffee is ·roasted is responsible for this deliciously different goodness. Instead of being roasted in bulk--as most coffees are--Hills Bros.' rare blend passes through ths roasters, evenly--continuously--a, little at a time. ' The chief factor in the success of this process is the perfect control of the flow of coffee and of the heat. This insures an even roast such as the bulk method can never equal. The ultimate result is a matchless! uniform flavor in every pound. In order to keep their delicious coffee fresh. Hills Bros, pacfc it in i-vacuum. Air, which destroys the flavor of coffee, is completely extracted from the can, and kept out by this process. Ordinary cans, even if air-tight, do not keep coffee fresh. Ask for Hills Bros. Coffee by name and look for the Arab-the trade-mark--on the can. Sold everywhere by grocers. Hills Bros. Coffee, Iric., Minneapolis, Minnesota. Life Saving Tests Given aty.w.c:A.
