Movie Morals Tlic current crusade for a new standard of movie moral!ly shoots wide of the pvctly obvious fact that the main trouble with the films is not Unit tho.y exploit indecency or give an unvciil glamor lo vice and crinu;, but that they .fail lo give realistic treatment lo the problems with which thuy attempt to deal. There is plenty of vulgarity on the screen, and occasionally some oiilnghl nastiness, Hit there is mi inl'mitely greater amount of cheap and silly Kcnli- mentalism. Indecency is nol hard to .recognize, but stupidity and bad laslc are more insidious enemies, particularly to the immature mind. As a public problem, however, the whole thing is pretty much like the question wliicli comes lirsl, the hen or the egg. Moving picture producers ami exhibitors are engaged in no foul plot to destroy the moral and intellectual standards of the American people. They are merely trying to make a living by giving the public entertainment of a kind llial, will produce results at the cnsh register. In the long run the public will gel precisely Hie kind of entertainment it is willing to pay for. If thai kind of entertainment results in a progressive lowering of Ihe public taste the blame doesn't rest altogether with the moving picture in- duslry. . Of cpurse_ ii you regard the films as 'an educational institution the problem assumes a, different aspect. The eduijational ]k)tentialities of moving ..' pictures are tremendous. In Russia and to a lesser extent in some other European countries every film is carefully examined to make sure that it carries the kind of lesson those in authority think the people ought to have, or .that at the very worst il carries no contrary lesion. In this country, however, the industry most certainly is not organized as an educational initilution. And most of us arc glad that il is not. We are rightly distrustful of efforts to mould our minds or our habits to lit the preconceived ideals of anybody. And after all that is what any - form of censorship comes down to. If you don't like the kind of enler- tainment the picture theaters provide you can stay away. If you don't think it is good for your children you can keep Diem. away. If enough other folks feel and net Hie same vmy^ you will get a change. If you fmil yourself alone in your t>oiiit of vjcw you will just have to look elsewhere for diversion. Dangerous Business In Randolph county circuit court Judge John L. liledsoc has asked the grand jury to return indictments against any persons believed guilty of paying the poll taxes of others in an effort to influence their VO'-.K. Let us hope .that such radical ideas about enforcement of the law gain no' foothold in Mississippi county. Where would we be if all of our candidates were locked up in the jailhouse?
