So says the Rev. Xeal Dodd, par
son of the movies, father confessor
of stars ot minor and major magni
tude, rector of the church of St.
Marys of the Angels, the religious
home of thousands of people con
nected with the motion picture in
dustry of Hollywood. Rev. Mr.
Dodd is in attendance at the Epis
copal convention here.
Moral Held Above Average.
The Rev. Mr. Dodd knows. For
four and a half years he has been
an integral part of the motion pic
y ture life of the southern city, he
' has married and baptized, he has
prayed over and buried hundreds of
those people whose work before the
camera is so important a factor in
America's amusement world.
"Th'ey're just ordinary people, like
you and me. If I v. ere asked as to
the morals ,of motion p.cture peo
ple. I would say that they are more
moral than the average run
folks," he says.
Rev. Mr. Dodd occupies a novel
position in church and theatrical
circles. Four and a half years ago,
struck by the utter lack of religious
work among the thousands of peo
ple in picture work, he opened &
small mission in the studio section
of Hollywood, He did not seek mem

on him for advice in slugi'iiy; church

the role of the clergyman in scena

"Mr. Hart has told me of his
hopes, his aspirations, his ambit'one.
His work as an actor is a secondary
consideration with him. He loves

Gambling: Devices Disapproved.
"Inasmuch as gambling devices
and raffles are largely being used
in open defiance of the law," it read,
"as a means for raising money for
charitable purposes, and inasmuch
as the police authorities have ap
pealed to all welfare organizations
for support in enforcing the law,
resolved, that we oppose the use of
raffles, roulette wheels and other
gambling devices in the gathering
of money for parish expenses and '
other nh ilanthroDic enternrises un-!
der the control of the church."
The matter of divine healing
again raised its head in the form of
a resolution calling "for a commis
sion to investigate the matter and
report at the next convention. This
subject was referred to committee.

"This talk of a girl being com

is too much money involved in the
making of a picture, too many peo

Rev. Mr. Dodd is the inveterate

"I am unalterably opposed to any

"There is too general an inclina

or justification. The motion picture
people are victims of just such a
condition. Let me say in their be- 1

The uiatter of the making of the
sign of the cross during baptismal
service created a short but spirited
debate. The revision committee en
tered a rubric in the proposed new
edition of the prayer book, making
the use of this sign an optional mat
ter with the clergyman. The rubric
was voted down after several dele
gates, lay and clerical, had vehe
mently expressed their ideas regard
ing the change.
The matter, of "the old Adam"
was the real enlivening occasion of
the session. The prayer book re
vision work is receiving a greater
portion of the time of 'the house,
it is recognized as one of the really
important tasks before the convention.

that he will discontinue his lecture

Your reasons for not wishing to run

effort toward jour candidacy. You named
a certain man whose support vou would

it requires a large amount of self-saerl-.'ice
to assemble 137 electors in a new
political movement. You knew that your
refusal meant deep humiliation and tre
mendous loss of prestige to those who
backed the convention. You knew that
you could have met your church offi
cials before Wednesday instead of after

no awkwardness about such a nnr.- 1

the talk of the town. Then, why did you

The frequent use and misuse of the term "hand-tailored" in the advertising pages of magazines and
newspapers, while it emphasizes the importance attached to this feature of ready-tailored clothing, has created
confusion in the minds of -both retailer and consumer as to just what constitutes "hand-tailoring."
The traditional standard of quality in clothing has long been
represented by custom tailoring. Today successful retailers, who
believe in quality, specify certain operations of hand-tailoring as
essential in their garments that they may possess the merit of
custom tailoring.
Catering to a critical trade, including some of the largest and most
particular merchants in the country, we have incorporated in our
merchandise over fifty hand operations which we feel are necessary
to a well tailored garment. The 23 hand operations listed are the
essential or key operations, other hand operations are contribctory.

23 Hand Tailored Points in Goodman & Suss Clothes
1 The canvas front is hand padded to secure
not only softness but flexibility; one of the
most important essentials to produce style and
balance in the garment.
2 Canvas fronts are carefully hand pressed so
that the proper effect may be developed in the
front of the garment, and that the shoulder
may lie smoothly.
3 Lapels are hand padded with small stitches
to insure softness and the proper rolL
4 The under collar is carefully padded by hand
for pliability.
5 The front darts are hand tacked with linen to
hold the forepart correctly on the canvas.
6 The top and front edge of the lower pockets
are fastened to canvas by hand to give
strength to pocket and insure the front being
held in perfect position.
7 Pocket welts are hand felled on all plain edge
coats. Welts on all coats are tacked by hand
to canvas with linen, to prevent sagging.
8 The bridle is basted and padded by hand
to the forepart and tacked on the collar so
that the front may hang evenly.
9 All flap pockets are bar tacked by hand
with silk twist to give strength and durability
to the pocket -
10 Tape is hand felled to the canvas in the
front of the coat that the edge may remain
in a smooth condition.
11 The outer edge of facing is securely hand
tacked to the tape on plain edge coats to
keep the edge firm and to prevent the edge
from turning.
12 The seam in the edge of the lapel is hand
tacked to the canvas to keep the edge flat
and to insure a solid effect.
13 The facing is securely hand tacked to the
canvas with linen thread to hold the front m
14 The inside breast pocket is blind tacked by
hand to keep the right front absolutely secure.
15 The front and back arm syces are drawn in by
hand with linen thread with chain stitch, to
insure a well-fitting armhole and to give ease
and flexibility without allowing the armhole
to stretch.
16 The under collar is put on by hand so that
the length can be accurately adjusted and
fullness properly distributed.
17 The under collar is hand felled to the neck
18 The top collar is put on by hand by expert
tailors so that the leaf of the collar may lie
J9 The outer edge of the collar is felled by hand.
20 The neck gorge is hand felled. The facing
and top collar are drawn together by hand
not only where lapel meets collar but the en
tire length of the facing, so that at no point
does the top collar overlap the facing.
21 The buttonholes are all reinforced and made
by hand.
72. The sleeve vents and bottoms are felled and
tacked by hand. Sleeve linings are also
hand felled and tacked
23 The bottom facing of coat is tacked and
felled by hand to the forepart and linings
are hand felled to the bottom lacing.
The same super-custom tailoring embodied in
our coats is applied to vests and trousers.
Tops of trousers are hand felled pockets are
hand turned. Trousers are carefully shaped
and shrunk by hand, and satisfactory wear
is insured by the special reinforcement
feature in the crotch.

Accused Precinct Chairman Says
True BUIs Are Faulty and .
Cuimes Not Committed.
W. H. Emrick, chairman of the
election board in precinct No. 201.
who recently was indicted on five
counts by the Multnomah county
grand Jury, on charges of neglect
and willful misconduct in the dis
charge of his duties as an election
officer, filed demurrers to the in
dictments yesterday afternoon in the
circuit court.
In the demurrers Emrick says the
indictments returned against him
each contain allegations of - more
than one crime the facts as stated
in the indictments do not constitute
a crime under the statutes, and each
indictment contains duplications, is
repugnant and is "full of repeti
tions." The demurrers set forth that it
was not the duty of Emrick to per
form the specific things of which
he is accused of being negligent,
but the duty of other members of
the board, who, it is inferred, are
responsible for any errors in enter
ing the totals on the tally sheets.
Emrick also holds that the negli
gence charged against him is not
a crime under the law and is not
sufficient reason for the indictments
returned against him.
