THE SHO
WONDERFUL STRIDES OF
MOTION VIEW INDUSTRY
p 111, GL1.EICIIMAN, manager of the Nat-
ional Film Co., Detroit, Mich., was in
Chicago last woek, in conference with
F. C. Aiken, vice-president and      executive
committeeman, Wn. It. Swanson, of the Film
Service Association. During a call at THE
SIutWN V,'0a1   offices Mr. Gleichman sail:
"It woulId appear to  oe that the time is
r9p ortune to 01 ducae the getneral public
tro1gh the    erlams of the daily new papers
scitli tlte wonderful ticvciopcnont of mote-
graphy. I believe that it would be en excel-
lent move for the l'ilrnt Setste Association
to inaugurate a generat pubicit    reparttent
for the dissemination of interesting matter
for publication in the daily press.
JI believe also that it wsould be a good
thing  for the Film    Serv ice Association  to
adopt a trade mark for the use of all ex-
hibitors projecting licensed filis rented from
the members of the association.
-There is no doubt but that judicious ad-
sertising pays. It is high time that the mov-
ing picture trade utilizes space in the daily
papers, as well as in the trade journals.
