SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 8
(AP) Utah's first women jurors
have decided that Lours Karakis
was not guilty of violating the
prohibition law. even if there was
beer in his ice box and a crock of
it under the bed. Maybe the. fact
that Mrs. Karakis went on the
witness stand with her new baby
and testified that the beer was
hers was the reason.
The Jury, including two women
members, returned a verdict of
not quilty after seven minntes de
liberation. The Utah law previously per
mitted the calling of women Jur
ors but gave them the right to
claim exemption because of their
sex, so they never have been 1m
panneled. A new law denied
them this privilege.
Experience and Impressions
Recounted by Colonel
Dow at Dinner
Salem people, and persons in
the northwest generally, are not
theatre-minded. Colonel David
Dow told the Balem Zontiang at
the club luncheon at the Marion
Two main reasons, he believes
are behind this fact: First, that
there is little of a cosmopolitan
public here and in the northwest;
and second, that the farm popula
tion, which Is the best ticket of
fice bet, is limited.
Colonel Dow, who Is manager
of the Fox Elsiuore theatre here,
told his observations of public re
sponse to the picture houses here
incidental to an interesting ac
count of his own experiences In
the business. He has been legiti
mate manager of a stock com
pany, vaudeville actor and field
manager for a string of 130 thea
tres In New England, not to
tion other Jobs. .
In 1897 Colonel Dow construct
ed the second picture machine ever
built in. Boston, and the first one
put up by an American. Although
crude compared to the present ma
chine, It had advantages over the
foreign one used there. Colonel
Dow, however, saw no future In
the movie, and when fire destroy
ed his equipment within a short
time, he abandoned the business.
The local man was manager for
the first traveling company in
New England,for "The Birth of a
Nation," which he says was the
first picture ever scored. Then he
became manager of an exchange
which exhibited "Civilisation," in
tended at first as a peace propa
ganda film. He related that short
ly after the exchange paid S100,
000 for this picture, the United
States declared war and but for
tho hannv thought of cutting out
a few scenes and changing the sub
titles, the picture would nave neen
a dead loss; instead, it was turned
into an enlistment propaganda
film. He told other experiences,
Mrs. Dow was a guest at the
luncheon, one of the largest at
tended of the winter sessions.
