returned to their homes from October 1 1007 to the same date of the following year as against 724112 immigrants who landed on our shores within the same period Mr Straus made a clear and comprehensive statement of fact concerning immigration and In formed the resident and other Cabinet Ministers that lie had called a conference with labor lenders and another with employers to assure them that there was work enough t go round Secretary Straus con tends that we need immigrants aa much as ever and that this is still a land of wide opportunities but he wishes those who come to be ac L curately informed of the condition because only tliosc wilt lie contented and abiding citizens This Ms all very nice and proper la Its way but the Secretary might also have urged the rest of the Cabinet to do

many moving picture shows in that city Xot only were some of the buildings not proof against fire but more frequently did the pictures pre sent immoral anti indecent subjects Ixjuisville has been quite fortunate p in this matter because the managers of the moving picture houses have not only provided safe buildings but have presented cleun subjects to 4 their patrons The moving picture business is in its Infancy It will grow and can be made a school for great good or great evil Scenes from ancient fund modern history the customs costumes and habits ot propOrlyf instruction to young
