words and singing of the actoi-H, in

The Movietone Ih used with news

til re. Jf a president n peaks, Is seen
talking In a news reel, his voice 1m
hiuird, along with the eheent of
the crowd. If tho subject is an
nuto race, or airplane event, the
hum of the motors Is reproduced
in natural tones.
The Vltuphone Is a marvellous
contrivance that reproduces the
voices of the actors and synchro
nizes the music of a film that Is
of those pictures taken In hUhIIoh
by this proce.HH, and the Movie
tone, also marvellous, can be used
with news reels where the film Is
taken with the process. Not all
films are taken hy the new pro
cess, but many of the big feature
pictures are.
For Instance, if tho Student
Prince, now showing at the (Va
lerian theater had been taken hy
tho Vitn phone-Movietone process,
while viewing this beautiful film
you could hear the voices of the
uctors, you could hear the mnb
chorus singing the raplvatlng Old
Heidelberg songs, nnd the clinking
of their beur glasses.
Med ford will be tho only city In
the stale outside of 1'urtland, hav

possibly Salem, where such equip
ment may be Installed at the new
KIslnore theater In a few weeks.
Where the Vita phone-Movietone
process Is used In filming, nnd re
produced on the screen of n thea
ter equipped with this wonder re
producing voice und music equip
ment, no theater organ or orches
tra. Is used, as the music is t-unmM
In the film as tho latter Is made.
For instance. In tho Seventh
Heaven feature plrture which
comes here soon tho audience
hears the musls of a 1 07 -piece
symphony orchestra which played
when the films were taken.
This modern reproducing equip
ment can be used In short subjects
on the theater program, taking the
place of the regulation short com

Nnt nil the moving pictures to
