FILM MEN WANTED
We want Sober, Honest, Industrious Men, experienced in the
film business to take charge of our own exchanges to be
established in most of the large cities of America. Apply
by mail only, stating age, past experience, and give refer-
ences to Exchange Department, International Projecting
and Producing Company, Schiller Building,   -   Chicago.
(Applications will be treated in strict confidence.)
THAT'S THE ANSWER
From the time this company entered the film field it has repeat-
edly assured exhibitors that it intended to take care of their interests.
We depended to a great extent upon the exchanges treating exhibitors
as they should be treated.   We believed that when an exhibitor
asked for INTERNATIONAL goods, he would receive them, but we have
hundreds of letters in our possession from exhibitors disgruntled by
the fact that a majority of exchanges are foisting faked, shoddy and
duped goods upon them, under the INTERNATIONAL label. This is not
true in all cases, but we know that it is true in a majority of in-
stances. Hence, we are forced to establish our own exchanges in order
9to give exhibitors what they want, that is, strictly INTERNATIONAL
film. These exchanges will handle INTERNATIONAL films, American
V   and European makes, exclusively, and they will be opened as rapidly
as men and locations can be obtained.
THE    EXHIBITOR      SHALL GET       WHAT HE      PAYS    FOR
INTERNATIONAL
PROJECTING AND PRODUCING COMPANY
ISCHILLER BUILDING, CHICAGOE
