News of the Week February 12, 1916 -- February 13, 2016
I dug through the 12-February-1916 Motography and didn't find "News of the Week as Seen in Films." This was a shock as it had been a regular feature since 14-November-1914. I didn't spot any missing pages, and I saw that it did appear in the 19-February-1916 issue.
I did notice two individual images from newsreels. The first one shows "New York Society girls skip rope on roof of hotel in early morning to keep slim -- Mutual Weekly." Note the warm coats. I'll bet they would plenty of weight jumping rope while dressed that way.
"President and Mrs. Wilson greeted in New York -- Mutual Weekly." Wilson and Mrs Edith Galt had married on 18-December-1915.
