Last June 11th and 12th Trags Theatre ran a picture entitled "On the Stroke of Three". In connection with this picture there was a title contest. That is, the Producers of the picture, the Film Booking Offices of America, wished to secure a title which would be better than the present title of the picture.

Mr. Tragsdorf handed out cards to his patrons which necessitated only filled in where the picture was seen and the suggestion for the new title. A short time ago Mrs. Louis Barton was advised that she has been awarded Fourth Prize, together with a check of $75.00. Mr. Tragsdorf has received a letter from Major H. C. S. Thomson, President of the F. B. O. Co. stating that the length of time which elapsed between the end of the contest and the date of awarding the prizes was due to the fact that there were 189,654 titles submitted. Mrs. Barton is to be congratulated on her good fortune, and she says the money comes in handy at this time of the year. Her title was "The River of Flowing Gold".
