Mr. J. W. Young, Engineering Staff Writer
SCIENCE SERVICE
Washington, D. C.

Dear Mr. Young:
Since I was associated in the production of the G-E film " A Modern Zeus", Mr. Bartlett referred your letter of April 2 to me.

As there were no "stills" made during the filming of the picture, Mr. John Gilmour, its director, and I have selected certain movie frames for you and have had them enlarged.

This will explain the inferior quality of the prints which are enclosed, as enlarging from movie film has never been entirely satisfactory with us.

I hope, however, that you will be able to use one or more of them.

Identity of each scene is written on the back of the print. We shall be interested to see the result if you do use the pictures.

Very truly yours,
WTCook-do
