Censor - general

With sound pictures comprised of shorter reels, questions being asked regarding censorship fees. Paramount wants to know if fees are paid on basis of reel or amount of footage since there is now a discrepancy between sound and silent pictures. DeBra replies, offering the systems of most of the censor boards and, of his examples, only Kansas does charge per reel. Many of the others charge per 1000 feet (the average length of a silent reel).
