McCLINTOCK RISING
IN FILM BUSINESS.
ClatrIes -W. -McClintock, well knowvii to

general offices of that firm in Syracuse, N.
Y., and has been made advertising mati-
ager, an enviable position, in view of the
big advertising campaign now under way
by that house. That Mr. McClintock Will
maike good in this position goes without
