HOMES AND HOMES
To say that the orphaned children,
are the most fortunate would be to
state the matter too strongly. But
certain it is that Koine orphans have
an advantage in that the right sort of
homes are chosen for them by ex
perienced and kindly supervisors of
the asylums or other institutions that
have undertaken responsibility for
the child's well-being. The child who
lives wilh his own parents is subject
to whatever conditions happen to pre
vail in the particular home he has
been born into, says the Boston Her
ald. If he has been allotted wise and
considerate parents, willing to create
. a helpful atmosphere, the child is.
Indeed, blest. If he has drawn fool
ish, inconsiderate and selfish parents,
lie is far worse off than the orphaned
waif, who is placed in ft carefully se
lected home, there- to be properly
trained and nurtured. It is a pity that
every child cannot have a proper
home, with his own mother mil! faih
er. But, of the two classes of
"orphans," these whose parents are
dead and those whose parents are
false to them, the former are not al
wavs the worse off.

when I was working for a moving
picture company, an or:...::izal ion of
writers asked me to talk to them
about writing for the screen. The only
thing I said was that the bei way
write for the screen was to forget
tiie screen and write as well as they
knew how. Anything le.-s than that.
I jointed out. wonld be unfair to both

ideas and ideals, and writing done to
