„Rather sadly“

Editorial content. „A FEW months ago Harry Crocker

opened a motion picture museum in Hollywood.

He will close it January 1st. The biggest day‘s business

was $7.00. One woman drove up to the place

in a fine big car with a chauffeur, stepped out with two friends

to visit the museum, but became absolutely

horror-stricken when told that the price of admission

was twenty-five cents. „Oh, my land,“ she said,

„we‘re just out for a drive and we thought it was free.“

Somebody said to Harry, „It seems a pity, Mr. Crocker, that

Hollywood won‘t support a venture as fine and

clean as this.“ „I guess that‘s what‘s the matter with it,“

replied Mr. Crocker, rather sadly.“
