Representatives of at least 12 local organizations agreed at a public meeting, sponsored by the Congregational Couples Club, on three major points in their discussion of the quality of motion pictures shown here. A committee will meet with the owner of the Blair Theatre to eliminate the more objectionable parts of previews shown during Children’s matinees. Another committee will make available to youth groups a list of recommended pictures. People present at the meeting concurred that the motion picture problem is a reflection of the broad problem of American morality today, which also affects television, advertising, literature and comic books. Often a theater owner must contract for movies he doesn’t want in order to receive those he wants to run. Also, owners must agree to show previews of each movie at least seven days prior to its run. Mr. Blair of Blair Theatre will cooperate with the appointed committee, as best he can, within the framework of his distributors rules.
