The Horse in War [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 30 September 1916
The Horse in War Though trench warfare restricted the hoc ot horses with the cavalry for a long time in the French front, the war-value of the horse is being again demonstrated at the expense of the Germans. One is not referring to the iron horse or juggernaut which British invention has perfected for the Huns' special edification, but to the British and colonial chargers. Several of the men who took nart in the charge by Dragoon Guards and Dcccan Horse near the Fourcaux Wood at the end of July returned to England for a few days' leave. A London representative of the Manchester Guardian met one of them — a member of the famous Indian regiment — early in August.

SINGLE STAR COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 30 September 1916
SINGLE STAR COMPANIES. Companies formed to exploit a single star seem to be quite the rage at present (says Pic ture Plan). Clara Kimball Young ar.U Charles Chaplin head the list of tho«r who will be known as lone stars in organisations, and the list promises to swell materially if all present plans are worked out to their ends. Louis J. Selznick. who formed the Clara Kimball Younc Film Corporation, is looking over the field of stars, and expects to select other shining lights before long who will also occupy a place at the head of their own companies. There are several other magnates said to be watching carefully the outcome of Mr. Selznick's plan, and if it proves a success they will also make films on the same basis. John R.

FILMS' POLITICAL PULL. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 30 September 1916
FILMS' POLITICAL PULL. Perhaps the first positive demonstration of the political power of the movies was given in Chicago recently. In the campaign for superior court judges prior to the election on Jane 5, Judge William Fenimore Cooper, one of the Democratic candidates, did not have the sup port of a single newspaper, but he won re election, standing fourth among the successful candidates. The screens of practically every film house of Chicago, about 1000, were used to electioneer for Judge Cooper, because of his blow at political censorship more than a year ago, when he prevented the city authorities from putting the ban on The Birth of a Nation. D. W. Griffith and his associates took a long distance part in the campaign through newspaper advertisements.

» HYPHENATED! Clever idea that (says a film exchange), rai ning Edwin August, film actor, director, avowed author, etc., for the presidency of these United States; but in sanctioning such a stunt it probably never occurred to Mr. August that it would be impossible to obtain even the shadow of representation in the electoral col lege, or that in becoming an actual candidate he would be compelled to use his own name, Edwin August Phillip von der Butz.

Double Trouble, Triangle Fine Arts; The Thoroughbred, Triangle Ince; and Keystone comedy, comprise new Triangle programme. Double Trouble has Dousles Fairbanks. Mar gery Wilson, and Gladys Brockwell in the leading roles. It is a Jekyll and Hyde tale of dual personality. Florian Amidon was a staid and retiring young banker. He was terribly afraid of his stenographer, and absolutely dreaded the girls at the Sunday School picnic. With the old ladies of the church, however, he was right in the boom. Considered by them a model young man, they made him president of the Sabbath Day society. ? This is the character the happy Douglas portrays in the early part of the picture. Un like Dr. Jekyll. he does not invent a myster ious potion, by drinking which he can change his personality, but ? . He goes on vacation, and one night is ac costed by a thug, who gives him one to the back of the head with a sandbag. F...

EIGHT-HOUR DAY SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 30 September 1916
EIGHT-HOUR DAY SPORTS. Ail roads will lead to the Show Ground, so far as the athletic fraternity is concerned on Monday, when the Eight-Hour Day Sports will be the attraction. All things considered, en tries are numerous, and good sport may be expected, although the declaration of handi caps so long before the meeting may by sub sequent happenings, have upset the calculations of handicappers. A notable case comes to mind in the running high-jump in which A. L. Cooper is conceded 7in. in a handicap made for 5ft 9in. At his school sports (S.G.S.) he cleared 5ft 2in (being second to A. E. Flem ing), and on this performance was allotted 7in. After the declaration of the handicaps, he competed in the all schools championship and won at 5ft 51in Thus unless there is a penalty for this win he looks to have an extra good chance of scoring on Monday. Winners in the other events appear to be well hidden by the handicappers. In the 120 yds, R. F. Cripps (the All Schools 100yds champion) and A....

AMONG THE EPSOM CANDIDATES A BIG FIELD LIKELY. Although 30 remained in the Epsom after payment of final forfeits on Thursday, it is probable that in two or three cases the policy has been determined by the weather, and the possibility of such heavy going t'flat 'anything might win.' At the same time it takes a good horse to win a good race, in the majority of cases no matter the conditions, and to-day's field em braces so many of high calibre that backers looking for remote chances of 'buying a liousc ior a icw smiling*' will Be quite entitled to their success if they get one. The books have never been at all risky with Woorak, and considering his 10.4 his price savoTS to some extent of squeezing. To win with such a burden a horse would require to be absolutely free from the bad luck that is always associated with big fields; while the fact that he was beaten at the end of the Doncaster (9.12) by Eurobin makes his pre sent task more difficult.
