Local theatres, together with

Paramount Week, the first
week In each theatrical season, has
come to be established in th mo
tion picture trade as marking the
industry's best effort, and this
year it is expected by motion pic
ture people that this Paramount
Week will be more successful than

As one of the steps toward rais

Pictures, the Famous Players-.
Lasky Corporation, have reduced
the number of pictures which they
will release this year. ; Two years
ago there were 104 Paramount
Pictures released between Septem

year there were 82, and this year
there will be only 52, or , one a

pictures has been radically re

ribution of 7.885,548 gallons was
reached. ; The July sales" exceeded
those made during August, 1922.

ment compiled by Secretary of
State Sam A. Kozer, today, from

erating within the state. The Lit
ter month previously held tha
record for heaviest disposals.
The July tax on motor vehicle
fuels produced a total revenue of
$245,458.58. Of this amount
$80,633.91 resulted -from the op
eration of the original law Im
posing a tax of 1 cent per gallon
on gasoline and Vi cent per gal
lon on distillate, while $104.

additional tax law providing for
a uniform rate of 2 cents per gal
lon on all kinds of motor vehicle
As compared with the preceding
month, gasoline sales during July
shows an Increase- of over 18 ier
cent, distillate sales having in
creased pearly 52 per cent.
To date, the motor vehicle fuela
lax measures have brought to the
state v treasury the total sum of
$3,929,745.31. Of the amount
collected under the law of 1921,
there has been returned up toy
August 31, 1923, the sum of $66
613.98 to operators of farm trac
tors, motor ; boats, commercial
cleaning establishments, etc., pur
suant to that provision authoriz
ing refunds of taxes on such no
tor vehicle fuels as are used for
purposes other than in the opera
tion of motor vehicles upon the
