Transposition of sentences sometimes helps
to clear up a bad situation. Sometimes
you will bo In a quandary how to express
your meaning clearly.
Try using your last sentence first and
see if! It doesn't help you. It stands to
reason that tho sentences must b4 related
to each other nnd mnrty tlmei tha dif

Take such a subtltlo as this: "I want to
ctenri tip such gambling dens. They are
tho causo of the downfall of mcri Ilka jpu

Tho last sentence Is awkward You can
not say: "They nro th6 downfall bf men
llko you, etc.," bccnliso "they" refers to
gambling deni. Chnnge the sentences
about "Men like jou nro ruined In silch
gambling dens I want to destroy them."

Letters and telegrams In many casts do
not need to be shown In extenso. The first
or last part or perhaps only A sentence or
paragraph will be enough. These, like sub
titles, are factory made. They ore not pho
tographed In tho studio, but made In the
factory nnd Inserted Into the picture later.
Perhaps many of jou hao seen a lady
pick Up a letter and read It, nnd when the
letter Is flashed, a couple of grimy, p6orly
manicured Angers hold It, This Is poor
work, but the causa lifts been shown.
Outside of Icadeis or subtitle and let

picture" of a dagger llng dn the table Is
shown. This will be mado In ths set at the

It Is poor policy to use many letters or

In conclusion, we can 6nly warn you
again to be careful of your Inserts. Lees

In making a one-reel picture there wera
few subtitles and more thought was given
them In making a f.ie-reel picture there
are bound to be many of them and you are"
apt to grotf careless.
The struggle to hold tha story together
well nnd to keep tho Interest going Is liable
to mAke you forget the Importance of the
substltle. Each one should be given minute
attention, particularly In order that It can
have no other meaning than the one In'
tended, If you use poetry use good poetry.
Poor poetry Is not poetry at all And only
serves to bring a laugh from the audience,

The Most Remarkable Motion Picture Program
For Serials Alone!
j The authors of these serials to appear during the coming 12 months will include
1 . '
Louis Tracy, Randall Parrish, Mrs. Wilson Wobdrow
and Albert Payson Terhune
Some of the greatest stars of the screen will be featured in these pictures,
among them being
"THE IRON CLAW," the most popular picture serial ever produced, and
"WHO'S GUILTY?" a really great series of 14 distinct and complete dramas, are
now being shown to crowded houses.
"THE GRIP OF EVIL," a master plot in 14 chapters featuring Jackie Saun
ders and Roland Bottomley, will be released July 17th.
In early Autumn will come "THE SHIELDING SHADOW," featuring
Ralph Kellard, Grace Darmond and Leon Bary. "The Shielding Shadqw" was
written and produced by the men who made the "IRON CLAW." It has every
thing that made the "Iron Claw" the world's greatest serial.
All these forthcoming productions will be worthy successors to "The Perils of
Pauline," "Exploits of Elaine," "Who Pays?" "Neal of the Navy" and the other
famous Pathe serials. Pathe is proud to be known as the world's greatest producer
The producers of this new $5,000,000 program include the Astra Film Corpora
tion, the Balboa Company and the Arrow Film Corporation, on whose staffs are
the ablest directors of the day.
Withsuch an array of writing, acting and producing talent responsible forthe
pictures the public is certain of rare entertainment. f
With the quality of the pictures thus assured and with a vast publicity cam
- paign designed to pack his house the exhibitor cannot lose.
