Horrors of Dayton Flood at Starland f 111 the thick of the death and desolation that recently visited the prosperous cit yot Dayton, miotion picture camera men battled with the angry elements, and risked death in terrible forms, and all that the photo-fans might behold with their own eyes 'the havoc of the waters. Through a fortunate clrcuuistance a camera man was in Dayton when the Laramie dam rolte aad overwhelmed the Gem City in its swirl of ang'ry waters. Ho was fortunate in, a double sense, being right In the mid�t of one of nature's most tragic tliroe.s, and yet in relatively secure quarters on the upper floor of a proi|jinent hotel. Obtaining the sanction of the military authorities, who had assuaiefl iconti'ol of the flooded secition under martval law, he improvised a boat and made a survey of the situation. The co-opETatlou of the authorities was of great assistance to 'the camera man in obtaining a series of thrilling scenes of devastation and rescue, which are bound to create a sensation tornorrow, when they will be shown for' the first �time at tbo Star-land "fh'eatre. It is hard to realize just what this heroic man had to undergo in order that theatre patrons might be able to i.sit iback in their comfortable chairs I and see tho cruel calamity portrayed. I With the flood boiling through the ! streets of the devastated city -with the j power and current of Niagara, it was i an exlreinely bajiardous 'thing to nav-, igate his, crazy craft. Many of iis pictures were obtained at the imminent risk of destruction, asv huge timbers, great oil Canks, and other strai!go Uotsam lungod at him from the crest of the sv/irllng waters. ' Great credit is due the enterprise of tho Stariand Theatre in securing for its patrons' the oi'igiual pictures of this, terrible calamity. ,Althoueh belug a film secured only at consid-I erable expense b,.- the Starland Tlie-! atre, '(here will be no raise in the adraisEiou,. when' this e.\traordiDai;y film will bo shown for the first time in Lethbridge at Starland, the popular photo-^iheatre tomorrow. 1.
