l'S 36, 19?-i - PAGE Fans Are Demanding That Their Idols Keep Free From Scandal Their Private Lives Ate Public Property EV DAX THOMAS NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June W.— A city so miiet and peaceful, so devoid of vice ami wlldness. and £o businesslike that It will make any midwestern village look like a den of Iniquity— Siieh will be the Hollywood ol tomorrow, Judging from the piesent trend of the motion picture censorship fight which, during the last few weeks, has become one of our leading national Issues. In addition to purifying pictures, Hollywood itself may have to be cleaned up. And there Is some justificatlsi for the demands of tlie various reform groups pertaining to the personal lives of the screen crowd Every star in motion pictures today Is a nfi.tional idol. The public wants to idolize its screen favorites. Hence it is up to the slur; to live lives which will stand Idolization. Players May Object Naturally, you're going to heai howls of protest from the film colony the minute any attempt Is made to regulaie the private lives of Its residents. Most of the persons here admit the necessity of cleaning up pictures. But they cling to the right to live their private lives in any manner they please, defending their acts by pointing out that there is even more immorality and vice in New York City than h. Hollywood. Is all probability that is true, and It is equally true that you hear few protests regarding the morals ot New York. That mav be attributed to t'ne fact that our screen stars belong to the public just as much as does the president of the United States. It is the public who raises them from inconsequential players to stars earning enormous salaries. The citizens of New York are simply private Individuals. It's Public Right Thus the public has a right to dictate the private fives of its movie favorites, whereas it has no such right as far as the average person is concerned. If it were not for the public adoration which has made it possible for them to earn huge salaries, .xnost of our famous film folk might be in the bread lines or, at the best, earning very Tb* £<&«'• Letter Box |iTo Jinfcii in in films is not enough, is the try of mi Killers; xtrern stars must fliiniimlo liny Kmirr.. of from their private lives.

Master and Slave the editor:) In medieval limes the king ruled through feu- dr.l lords and their soldiers. The lord with the greatest number of soldiers stood the highest will king. Thus tilt 1 condition of muster and slave under the law WHS preserved. Under our first democracy men voted In proportion ^i Ihc amount ol property they owned. Some men voted a gieat many times, and thus the condition of master mid slave under the law was pie- MTVCd. Wi> look back ii|x>;< that ns being an obnoxious phase of our History. Hilt how Imve we Improved? Today men vote a yivut many limes by simply buying up poll lax receipts, and thu.s Hie condl- llon of muster and slave under Hip law Ls preserved.

Mr. and Mrs. Max Borowsky and j Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Rhodes have daughters, Betty and Janie, And living according to accepted conventions certainly is D very chtap price to pay. In Ihe past the film folk have lived in Iheir own little world with their own conventions and moral code. Prom now on they will be asked lo conform to the more popular conventions. And unless they want to do that, they will have to turn to something besides Ihe screen for a profession. Actions Are Condemned Film fandom doesn't want one of its favorite actresses running around In public with one man while she is married to another, ns Constance Bennett has done with Gilbert Roland while married to de la Falalse. It doesn't approve of a girl who at 23 has divorced her first husband, whose second husband committed suicide, and who has separated from her third mate, as has been the case with Jean Harlow. It doesn't want a woman who has divorced three husbands, and Is reported ready to shelve her fourth, to become entangled with a married man. such as seems to be the case of Gloria Swanson and Herbert Marshall. It doesn't want n woman io parade around in masculine nt- tirc as Marlene Dietrich does. Those are things for which Ihe entire film colony Is condeintvc and rightly so. And it is such .•stars who In the future will find that there is no place for them on the screen. The great mass of our populace lives according to certain conventions. And these persons have a perfect right to demand that the screen stars, who. because of their positions, are examples for the younger generation, should conform lo these same Ideals.

Allen, of Memphis, at the Lake Street Methodist church is growing with interest at each service. Ijfist night tliere was a large crowd who heard the evangelist preach on the subject of "Life's Three Greatest Surprises".' The preacher said in part: "Christ's teaching is plain concerning the Judgment. Most of our ideas about ii are speculatfve. But 1 believe thai we will be more interested in the progress we have made spiritually in that day than we will In whether we are as good as someone else. As it stands now most of us try 10 compare the strength of our own character by standards set by some other individual. Jesus is the standard for our character and in the judgment we are going to be more interested in the degree of righteousness which Is evidenced in our own lives. The first great surprise to come to anyone In the Judgment is going to be to the truly righteous. They do right because it is right to do It." "They do not serve with the hope of reward as the primary motive and they are going to be surprised wlien they arc told by Christ that they have earned rewards. Tlie second surprise is to be to the worldly people. They do not see the need of God's Kingdom.
