During the past few months vari-
ous groups of Chinese students
throughout the 'United States have
corresponded with Mr. Will H. Hays,
p~resident of the Motion Picture Pro-


ducers and Distributors, Inc., calling
his attention to the gross distortion
of facts in the photoplay with regard
to Chinese life and manners. The
protest arose from the habitual mis-
representation of the Chinese charac-
ter as underhanded or a victom of
A number df arguments are used
by the students in bearing out their
point. They claim that being an in.,
strument of popular education, the
motion picture should disseminate
truthful information and avoid tin.
wholesome misrepresentation. Just
how far the artistic clims of the mov-
ies exempt them from this contention
is a matter 'of question. Neverthe-.
less, it is true that on the whole the
photoplay--Chinaman is a consi ant
slander upon 'his race.
It' io suggested that there are in-'
numerable Chinese virtues wh~ch will
have an edifying influence upon the
American people and which }hou ldrte

The journalist's modern problem, it
would seem, is over-production. Whet}
one looks at the over-laden new,-
stands and magazine raclrp, and
niotes the same authors in periodical
after periodical, it is scarcely to be
wondered that most of the writing is
make-shift and haphazard. Criticism.
especially, is filling more and l morce
space; in fact it is the provina^-.
ground of many a young writer, rd,
the incidental odd -jobbery of older
hands at the literary game. But it i,q

it is under commercial infliees.ji

great physical discomforture.

of the day, the remedlying of it i^~ al-

dloes not funcePon. a constitutional
provision which is not made invio-
late.' It takes the sharpness of spe-
cific high lights to bring home the
momentousness of a question, to van-
ish the, apathy and indifference of a
sleeping nation. Men of public es-
teen: are the barometers of a people;
it is unfortunate that they are taken
as criterians of conditions, for they
are usually moral superiors.
A consciousness of nuirpeoc in so.
vial. betterment on the part of each
member of the nation. 'a vanishing1 of
indifference and collective apathy is
the only remedy for the so-called
post bellum degeneracy, the aftermat,,h
of an abnormal, intense state of be-
iang.' Transient pleasures and satis-
factions must be sacrificed in the in-
terests of a; glorious making-good.
When Thomas A. Edison was recent-
ly interviewed on his 76th birthday. he=
is reportedl to have said among other
things that one particularly discour-
aging fact about college men is that
thecy do not readt the newspapers suf-
Mr. Edison is certainly not the first
jerson to have commented upon the
failure of students to read newspa-
pers, and their tendency to read them:
superficially when they readt them at
all. When students are censured for
carelessness in this regard, they gen.-
orally explain that they have no time

well for the proper c1Ii-ias to con-
sider the matter.
