MEETING IN MAINE. Portland. Me.. Feb. 11. A quarterly meeting of the State Motion Picture League was held at the Falmouth Hotel here last week. Three new members were adrled. brinp- inp the roster up to 60. Committees on legislation and pub- licity were appointed and various other matters discussed. BERNSTEIN BOOKS A CLUB. "Did you hear about me landing a club?" enthusiastically called out Free- man Bernstein Tuesday afternoon, as a Variety reporter tried to find his way through the smoke in Bernstein's inside sanctum. "Yes. I got it and got it right." "But hey you, just get this now and no more stalling; stop making a hick out of me, will yer? You know I ain't no hick, and it was no good stuff last week, you guys kidding me about my new clothes and silk hat. No, I ain't sore; I owe you fellows too much money to be that way, but remember I always stood for you even if you did give me credit, and I don't see why you pick on me just like the Player did. "Have a cigar. They came in by freight and must be heavy enough to kill Doc Steiner's breath. Keep cool, I'll tell you about the club I got, and there was five of 'em bidding for it too, but you know little Freeman, the boy who discovered oil. Never mind that now though, let's get back to that hick stuflF. You're hurting me in my business, on the level. I am serious about this, and Pll tell you why so you won't do it anymore. You know how I stand with everybody, regular guy, the go get 'em kid, always de- livers and can land anything from a trained flea to a flock of wild ele- phants—if there's enough coin in it for Freeman. Did I make that plain, enough coin for me? Well, since I got to be an honest agent, the man- agers are going around saying 'Who is this guy Bernstein? Is he there?' and I've been picking up some busi- ness. They want to book where they can do the best and I certainly can do the best for them that can be done with safety. But this hick stuff hurts. They don't think I am any good when reading it and so I have to hold on to those I've got. while the actors might believe the stuflF too and you cer- tainly have heard me talk to actors and actresses enough to know how much of a perfect gentleman I can be under pressure. While it was only the other night May said to mc, said she: 'Freeman, where arc you getting all that new dialogue from? Are you holding out an educated chicken on me?' and you can believe mc that when your wife gets wise to some- thing there must be a reason. "Never mind anyway, I won't holler any more. If you are going to make a rowdy out of me for a laugh, do it good and get a couple, but I'll tell you about the club just the same. The United and the whole bunch were after i^. It's the Bron.x Elks. To-morrow (Wednesday) night I am going to send them eight acts that will make that bunch elect me a life member right after the show. Ret you can't guess the first one I will name? You did. It's May Ward sure enough, and then there's Beth Stone and Co.. Sherman and De Forrest ( think I am about due to touch Dan for $25 or so—what day is this?), the Jap Dolls, Roberts. Hayes and Roberts, William Edmonds and Co., .Arion Four :ind Rf»snire and Prevost. I am getting some real money for that outfit, and fbey all arc going to get their bit. No I. O. U's in this one."
