Empress Improves Sound by Addition of New Equipment "Sound 00 Film" Bring* Bet* ter Reproduction, Syn- chronfcatloH A major improvement was scored by the Empress theater last week when it added "sound on film" reproducing facilities to its projection room equipment Tbe addition was celebrated by an unusual showing of Important pictures. Quite simple In appearance, the sound film functions through tbe use of a photo electric cell, or "electric eye," Minute lines run horizontally at the side of the film and these interrupt the ray of tbe electric eye. Tbe Interruption In turn disturb* tbe receptive equipment and this is gradually built up by pre-ampllflers and amplifiers to produce tbe sound, Advantages of the equipment are perfect synchronisation at all times, better reproduction and a wider range' ot usable pictures. Tbe newf equipment leaves ,the Empress with possibly the best equipped and best .appointed theater In this .part of tbe stater Win* In Back ffB« tbe Afc&af*!)** £ift68 I t$€K tfo&^/ir til vttt*%BJl Sftfttr* daf ftlgftt caine nine Mills cofcfcty boys who** exhibit* . tlit county in the 4*8 tinb won.

Masters Elected to High Masonic Offices It Grand Secretary of Royal Arch Maaona and Grand Recorder of Council At the recent sessions of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons and of tbe Grand Council, George B. Master* of Glen wood was chosen to very high honors. On Oct, 81 at the Grand Council held in Sioux City be was chosen recorder. Then on Nov. 2, at meeting ot the Grand Chapter, Royal Arch Masons held in Har- Ian, he was chosen Grand Secretary. He has combined the two offices and will have their headquarters in Olenwood. There are 117 Chapters ot Royal Arch Masons and 27 Sub Councils in the Iowa Jurisdiction, all of which will handle their business through his office. He has leased tbe first floor of the K. ot P. building on the north side of the square for bis offices and is moving in this week. Tbe book* and records of the Qrand -••----to%lg-- _ | »**l? . J^KrirW^PP^E^lH"! " • W»Vi UL. _ ,, . _ Grand ''Recorder's office will be brought down from Sioux City this week. These two offices for a number of years past bave been housed separately and a man for each office, although they bad been combined a number of years ago. Mr. Masters is an unusually good wan for this position for there are few men better inform ed or who have a wider knowl edge of Masonry than Mr, Masters. He has held state office before in tbe Grand Chapter, and this is a still finer recognition, Tbe office, as combined, carries a very comfortable salary and expenses, and is somewhat of a permanent nature, as tbe secretary is usually continued from year to year, as long as bis work is satisfactory, and we feel sure It will be in the case of Mr, Masters, Ray Laughlin Home Burns Wednesday Malvern Firemen Answer Three Country Husk Neighbor!
