IRIS Theatre Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY APRIL 18, 19 and 20 "OVER TWENTY-ONE" —with Irene Dunne and Alexander Knox If you're looking for laughter, don't miss this one. The story revolves around a soldier, but it has nothing to do with war. It is a clever tale about the doings of the men and women in the training camps. It is one long howl from start to finish and no one should miss seeing it. Chas. Coburn is great and Irene Dunne is simply a knockout along with the others in the cast. It sure is a "pip'' of a comedy. SUNDAY, MONDAY APRIL 21 and 22 "SHE WOULDN'T SAY YES" —with Rosalind Russell and Leo Bowman This is the side-splitting, rib- tickling story of a lay psychiatrist who refuses to let love upset her plans for the future. Then she meets a War Correspondent. Recognizing the fact that she is falling in love with him she throws a luscious blond at him hoping to throw him off the track, but needless to say, he wins her in spite of herself. This is the first film for Rosalind in a long time but she shows that she is capable of doing a great job with a comedy role like this. It is tops in fun! SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY APRIL 23 and 24 "SHE WENT TO THE RACES" —with Ava Gardner, Frances Gifford and James Craig A swell action film with some exciting race track shots thrown in.

C, and says in part: "I am getting along fine here and hope the folks back home are too, but I wish they would make up their minds and send me overseas. I have been in this camp since February 27 and am expected to go to the Carribean theater. I am getting tired of doing nothing but sleeping here. I miss everybody back home since I had my furlough, especially my girl friend in Postville. I get her letters regularly, and they keep me from getting too homesick. When this three year hitch is up I'm coming back to the farm and settle down, as I'm getting tired of this roaming around. But I asked for it—so I am hoping it'll be better when I finally get overseas and am settled in some outfit in one place. The weather here has been springlike, but it rains once in awhile. However, the sand here keeps it from getting muddy. Mother sends me the Hrald, so I can read all that goes on back home. It's mail call now, so I'll go see what mail I have waiting for me. Your friend, EDWIN."

Mrs. Flavia Hawkins who lives at the Soldiers Home in Marshalltown writes this office as follows: "Just a few words of thanks to you for sending the Herald so promptly to me all the time. It is like an old neighbor coming in for a chat, and I appreciate it very much. It brings back memories of the long ago. because I spent the greater portion of my lifetime in Postville I was but 10 years old when we came there to live and that was my home until I left there 4Vi years ago. I will be 83 years old May 4. This is a lovely place for all old people, over 200 now living here. We have six long tables in the dining room and they were all filled today but one. You can readily see there is a lot of work to keep the rooms clean. These have been painted white, so they all look nice now. I have a lovely room and I keep it nice and clean myself. So I am thankful I am so able to get around and to be able to help others who cannot help themselves, and my prayer is that I may remain that way until I am called home. I am enclosing a little gift for you editors for a dish of ice cream for Easter. I hope I may be able to visit Postville before cold weather come again. Nevertheless, I like it here and am glad all old people have a home like this and get such good care and such grand meals all the time; it is wonderful when things are as high as they are nowadays. Wishing you all a very happy Easter, I am, yours truly, FLAVIA HAWKINS." You onn do It. loo. In St to If hours at home. Everything you need for > glorious wave! A real enmi cold ware.
