Long Description:

..."I am anxious that our members read again this resolution very carefully, particularly having in mind the avoidance of the production of books and plays that have to be so changed, although released under original title, as to leave the producer subject to the charge of deception. My attention is particularly called to this because of the recent reported purchase by our members of certain current plays."
