Members of the Los Angeles group
of the University of Michigan League
recently held a meeting at the Univer-
sity club in that city, for the purpose
of interesting other Michigan women
in joining the organization. There are
approximately 100 University women"
in Los Angeles, only 40 of whom are
definitely connected with the League
group. Out of this latter number, 22f
hold life memberships in the Univer-:
sity of Michigan League.
At this meeting officers for 1923-24
were elected as follows: Mrs. Albert
1H. Pattengill, president; Miss Grace
Louise Wolf, vice-president; Miss Hel-
en Louise Flinn, secretary;, Mrs. John
A. Main, treasurer.

it. What my new invention will do is,
not to change the movies as they are
but to open a inew field of entertain-1
ment and education. The silent dramal
cannot be improved by adding the
voice, movie actors are either un-
trained in dramatic speaking or are
wholly incapable of it."
The voice or other auditory ele-
ments are to be introduced into the
silent drama only when they will
heighten the effect of the pantomime.
Will Use Sound Proof Studio
Pictures for the De Forest film are
taken in a soundproof studio by an
ordinary motion picture camera, al-
tered by the addition of a voice box
in which sounds have been translated
into electric currents and thence into
light waves. Reproduction is by an
ordinary projection machine supplied
with a voice attachment which trans-
lates the light waves back again in-
to sound waves which are amplified
and produced thru invisible horns un-
der the screen. Sound is photo-
graphed on the edge of the film at a
distance 10 inches further along the
film strip from the point where the

picture is photographed, but the re- provements have
