' Everybody talks about the thing that's closest to his heart., So you'll forgive me if 1 devote this column to my favorite movie subject—the g00d old western, if the manager of the local theatre, will forgive me, 111 put in just a brief mention of TV and state that of all the horse • operas now oh exhibition on the "idiot tube", only one, ,the Virginian, rings the bell in my book. But to get back to the movies quickly, I've already rec: ommended A Fistful of Dollars (Italian made), The War Wagon and El Dorado, the latter which I will now explore. For a true, dyed in the wool western fan, El Dorado is the perfect dish. 1 can't think of a single derogatory comment to make about it. Of course, you have to take John Wayne and Robert Mitchum t but even if they are not your favorite, tihey both give masterful performances. Working against overwhelming odds, oldster Wayne battles a horde of vicious bad guys to save his drunken buddie and to serve the forces of rightousness. A supporting actor, Arthur Hunnicutt almost steals the show but there are others wlho share generously in this rather outstanding (for a western) film. 1 hope none of you western fans missed El Dorado—it even includes a liberal dash of humor and a lot of satire. As time concludes: "With crutches as swagger sticks, they (Mitdhum and Wayne) limp triumphantly past the camera—two old pros demonstrating that they are better on one good leg apiece than most of the younger stars on two". To sum this production up in four well chosen words—"First come, first served". To pursue the subject further, I refer to Donald Kauls column in the Des Moines Register. Kaul, besides being one of my favorite columnists, devotes considerable space to some erudite comments on the movies. Referring to Marty Rackin, he quotes this Hollywood producer as saying: "Pictures have" but one obligation," he. says;~"fo entertain. If you've got a message, send it by Western Union. "I don't preach in my pic- itures. If you want to put across a message, make a picture for the Ford Foundation and let the people come in free. If they pay two dollars to see the show, they should be entertained for their money." These haw been my sentiments for years, but this view •has got me into some tight spots from a critics angle. Rackin continues: "The American western is 4—Alfeni (Iowa) Advance MONDAY, OCT. 16, 1*67 Cancer meeting for teachers is held here South Kossuth Chapter of the American Cancer Society was host to fifty teachers, educational chairmen, and nurses of the 6th District at Algona, Oct. 10.

It's the way you make it happen that makes it a good or bad picture." .RACKIN'S LATEST film is the current "Rough Night In Jerico," a western starring George Pcppard and Dean •Martin. Martin, incidentally, is Radon's barber. Which brings the discussion down to this picture which will be shown at the local theatre October 29th. I saw Rough Night in Jerico in Minneapolis last week and again, I can recommend it to my western fans. Hardly in a clan with El Dorado, it pictures Dean Martin as a "'bad guy" which is rather unusual but it's worth seeing. • A final comment by Rackin which again coincides with my views and probably the theatre manager's as well, "The people who tell me we should make more films like Disney makes are people who don't go to movies." Rackin, by the way, was in Des Moines addressing a group of Central States Theatre Corporation managers. Central States Corporation owns the local Algona. 'INK in my VEINS' At lilt!

Here Is e little history lesson. Can you name four U. S. Presidents who became better known for their middle names then their first name? They were Hiram Ulysses Grant, Stephen Grover Cleveland, Themes Woodrow Wilson, and David Dwight Eisenhower. Worth remembering: "There aren't any rules for success that work unless you do." The rule of life la'to be found within yourself; It is better to believe in your neighbors then to feer end distrust them. ,...'.-.. Hal Boyle says, The U. S. population is expected during 1968 to pass the 200 million mark for the first time in history. That means some kid will be born next year who'll grab the parking space you'll be looking for in 1988. With my thinking on the 3 cent service tax now in effect end the extra amount of employes to administrate the program and wondering if it will pay or cost more then the amount collected in tax, I ran across this news item. A check for one cent was received by e citizen of Attleboro, Mess., as a rebate on his state income tex. He noted that it cost the stete five cents postage to send it to him end because the item charge at his bank is 10 cents, it would cost him nine cents to deposit the check. A New York manufacturer has invented a paper that dissolves in water. The company said its product makes it easy for confidential communications and documents to be destroyed after they have served their purpose. In America's colonial deys, no one specialized in dentistry. It was practiced es a sideline by actors, merchants, engravers, or even hairdressers. Their dental instruments were usually limited to e wrench end minieture chisel. -• • .,.'•( . ....... ; A session with one of these amateur dentists was an experience that even the stouthearted certainly did not care to repeat.

Missing teeth were often replaced with sound humen teeth. As late as 1790/ advertisements appeared in newspapers seeking "live teeth."

Electronically regulated clocks, although separated by a thousand miles or more, ere helping to measure the shape and size of the globe.
