Beatty informing Silverman that an advertisement displayed in a recent issue of Variety claiming that the El Brendel production of "Help Yourself" is registered with the US copyright office as well as the MPPDA is incorrect. The Hays Office has no records of this production. Included is a letter from Hays asking Joy to call the film's producer William R. Wilkerson and inquiring when he had contacted them. Hays says he knows no contact was made but that Joy shouldn't offend him. "Help Yourself" a product of the NY based Tec-Art Studios, not a member of MPPDA.
