BAD PICTURES SCORED [Newspaper Article] — Player — 5 January 1912
BAD PICTURES SCORED TRENTON , N . J ., Jan . 1 . —Dr . George B . Wright , Commissioner of Charities and Corrections , for this State , has just submitted his annual report to the Governor , and in it he scores immoral and suggestive moving pictures and vaudeville shows where suggestiveness is a feature . He asked that a rigid censorship should be exercised over all shows where the youth of the State congregate . The important part of his . report states that moving pictures and vaudeville entertainments when clean , and no reason can be assigned , why they should be otherwise , are important educational agencies , and afford opportunities for restful recreation . When , however * they represent crime in an attractive manner they are dangerous and should be suppressed . When immorality is depicted in such a manner as to make the young think it is smart to be vicious it is harmful , because they are taught that wrong-doing is not harmful unless some flagrant crime is committed .
