- EDITORIAL COMMENT: Hart to only deal with Eastern-produced shorts. The implication is that the experiment with Hart has not been successful - cf the Nell Gwynne case.
All films produced abroad and on the East Coast will henceforth go through the West Coast PCA machinery. Hart will only handle short subjects. While short subjects and preliminary work on features will still be done at the New York PCA office, all features will be given the final seal of approval in California.

3 January 1935 Hays to Depinet on Code machinery -- films produced abroad or in the East will go through the West Coast PCA: "You will bear in mind that the Production Code Administration consists of eight men of such experience and good judgment, and inasmuch as this certificate represents the judgment of the Association and is endorsed and backed by the Presidents of all the companies, I do not believe that feature pictures should be certified except as such certificate represents the judgment of the eight men."
