JOHNNY ARTHUR in "Honest Injun" does as well as could be expected with the ancient material given him. The idea is the one about the young man sent to the ranch to be made a man of. Around this has beendraped a great number of gags, most of them familiar, and such merriment as the comedy raises emanates from the comedian's speed.

The apparent dearth of ideas for short feature comedies isn't genuine. The great field of burlesque isn't being exploited. Parodies upon big pictures, following the originals by a sufficient time margin, are suggested herewith at no expense to those who decide what the short comedies will be.
