Long Description:

Milliken on "The Cock-Eyed World", and concern over imitations: "If we get many pictures like this one, I am frank to say I don't know what action we will be compelled to take, but it is safe to say it will be drastic." Editorial: "I do hope that you can see that the Hays office is alive to the situation and that it is considering Podunk along with the main stems ... If the Hays office fears imitations of "The Cock-Eyed World", and perhaps it should, then it should be permitted additional authority. The producers should all agree not to fashion any plots after "The Cock-Eyed World" until the nation's reaction has set in."
