This material concerns proposed legislation allowing the sale of tickets to Sunday movies (House Bill 424). The Kansas Woman's Christian Temperance Union opposed Sunday movies "owing to their destructive tendencies." Correspondence with G. Charles Gray of Chapel Cinema Arts and Robert F. Withers of Midwest Film Distributors Inc., both located in Kansas City, Missouri, is also included. The correspondence relates to the distribution of films supporting prohibition, such as "Lest We Forget," "The Transgressor," and "Deliverance," and proposed regulation of films. There are several other groups of official Kansas WCTU records on Kansas Memory. They can be found by selecting Collections - Manuscript - KWCTU/Mary Evelyn Dobbs.
