AT THE MA.IESTIC "BIRTH" EDUCATIONAL FILM AT MAJESTIC "Birth" has been pronounced the most remarkable moving picture ever made. There are reasons why it Is so. It has no plot,nor story.

Fifty babies of all sorts and figures are the principal figures on the screen. The ^picture was produced by tiie Eugenic Film Co. as an educational agency, and its aim is to give this country belter babies and wiser motliors.
