10 Feet of Film Taken At
Chicago Reproduced In
N. Y. By Telephoto
Broadway Theater Patrons View
Picture of Actress Alighting
From Train That Morning
In Middle West
NEW YORK. Apr. (AP) The
realm of spot news was opened to
the movies today with the first
demonstration of transmitting
moving pictures over regular tele
phone wires.
Ten feet of film, taken this
morning In Chicago was put on
the wires in that city, and received
at the New York office of the
American Telephone and Tele
graph company. It was explained
that the same pictures could have
been received simultaneously with
New York by th esix other tele-
photo offices of the company, sit
nated in Boston, Cleveland, At
lsnta,45t. Louis, Los Angeles and
San Francisco.
The pictures were transmitted
at the rate of seven minutes for
each foot and half of film, the 10
foot strip with Bome intermission
between nieces, being sent in
something less than two hours.
News Reels Speeded Up
Commercial application of the
telephoto movies was expected to
affect chiefly the news reel com
panies which in the past have had
to depend on airplanes and trains
for distribution of their pictures
The cost of th enew services
will be approximately $50 a foot
of film sent from any one of the
eight telephoto offices to all the
other seven.
Today's film, a close up shot of
a movie actress taken as ene
allahted from a train in Chicago,
was taken at New York, and to
demttHgrratethe- prVitical applica
tlon of the process, the negative
was developed and given a private
showing in a Broadway theater.

Bishop E. B. Johnson of Cape

bishop stopped his discourse

more, answering the questions

Modestly admitting that when
he first entered Africa he walked
800 miles through country never
before visited by a missionary the
bishop added that be was at one
time surrounded by savages arm
ed to the teeth, and that they
counselled for a long time about
what to do with him; but, they dis
persed quietly after a time, and
the bishop thinks it was due to
two things; he was unarmed, and
be kept smiling.
Conditions are much different
now, partly due to missionaries'
work and partly to the exploits
tion of the country's mineral and
other resources; but the human
problem is as great as then, the
bishop went on to say.
Territory controlled by Great
Britain is for the most part well
ruled, but throughout Africa a
"fear complex" seems to dominate
the Europeans, to the extent, that
the "color line" is drawn in many
ways. As an extreme example, he
