TEN At Mason City THEATERS BJ B. j. e. STOKT OF CHINESE INTERIOR AT CECDU Alice Tisdale Hobart's best sell Ing novel, "Oil for the Lamps o China," came to the Cecil theate here Monday for a four day en gagement. Mrs. Hobart spent a large par of her life in China, and after years of collecting her data, spent five years in writing her story of the romance, sacrifice and hardship endured by the men and their wives Â·who are the pioneers in introducing American oil into the Orient. The picture sweeps from the snow wastes of Manchuria, through picturesque Chinese cities and villages to the torrid interior. There are shots also in the cherry blossom land of Japan and in New York. Cameramen were sent to Manchuria early in 1934, to make atmosphere shots, more than a year before the picture was started at the studio. Director Mervyn LeRoy also spent some months in China studying the country and the customs of its people before even casting the picture. Pat O'Brien, Josephine Hutchinson and Jean Muir head the cast Â·which includes John Eldredge, Lyle Talbot, Arthur Byron, Henry O'Neill, Donald Crisp and Ronnie Cosby. Several hundred Chinese work in the picture in roles from important speaking parts to extras.

But when I got al the words wrong they accused me of being a humorist and said I was quaint." * * * ROBERT YOUNG LIKES ROLE IN "VAGABOND LADY" "Never enjoyed working in a picture more than I did in 'Vagabond Lady.'" It was Robert Young, dark and imndsome screen star, who has been featured in numerous outstanding pictures of late, talking. "Besides liking the part I played, I thoroughly enjoyed swaggering: through tie greater part of the production in slouchy clothes sans necktie, suspenders and other bothersome haberdashery." As the prodigal son of a wealthy and fashionable family, Young appears in most of his scenes in blue lungarees, woolen sweater, sneak- rs and yachting cap. This com- ortable outfit was made possible s he portrays the role'of a like- ble young rover who sails the even seas in his own sloop until e encounters the charms of Evelyn /"enable who succeeds in mooring lira at permanent anchor. This picture plays Tuesday, Wed- esday and Thursday at the Palce as a companion feaure for "The lorentine Dagger," a Ben Hecht tory produced as a Clue club mys- ery. Margaret Lindsay, Donald foods and C. Aubrey Smith head the cast of the latter film. * * * Featured through Tuesday at the :ate theater is the film version of the Dashiell Hammett story, "Wo- an in the Dark," starring Fay 'ray and.Ralph Bellamy. With this ystery thriller is the elaborate usical, "Gold Diggers of 3935."

CRESCO, July 15.--County At- :orney C. H. Anderson and Deputy Sheriff Percy Haven of Cresco re- :urned Friday night from Dodgeville, Wis., where they had been witnesses with Joe Bilex and Mrs. Alice Hilsman White of Elma in an effort to identify Lloyd Coyier, previously charged with entering a "lank at Elma with intent to rob. District Attorney Clarence Gibion and Special Prosecutor Noel Boardman of Wisconsin and County ^ttoraey Anderson of Howard ounty, Iowa, moved that a gover- or's warrant of extradition from he state of Wisconsin be refused ecause of lack of sufficient posi- ive identification. Coyier was therefore released by rder of Justice of the Peace T. :arry Arthur. Coyier had been ar- ested four times on an investiga- - ion warrant, a governor's war- I rant, a warant from Iowa and a fugitive warrant, and had been held in the count yjail at Dodgevffle pending extradition proceedings. 2 LOCATDOlS ARE DELEGATES Weaver, Westfall to Go to International Session at Mexico City.

It s expected that a large portion of hp delegates will take advantage of the post convention tours through central Mexico which have been arranged for them by the Lions club of Mexico City. An unique feature of this convention is the use of a "Pullman City" for the accommodation of the delegates who will not be able to obtain hotel rooms during the convention. Every hotel room and available apartment, and a good portion of the accommodations available in private homes are already reserved. Hundreds, possibly thousands, will therefore stay in Pullman City during the convention where they will have their own lighting system, their own police force, a special cabafet, restaurant facilities, shops, baths and even carefully laid out streets and boulevards lined with trees and flowers.

ALGONA, July 15.--A collection of pictures owned by T. C. Sherman of this place stirs memories of the days when Mr. Sherman, many years ago a banker at Bancroft, used to treat with Indian tribes of the northwest as" the right-of-way representative for the Milwaukee railroad. For example, the two pictures reproduced here bring to his mind the story of a grandfather and a grandson, related in blood line but poles apart in their experience. The grandfather was John Grass, one of the mighty chieftains of the Sioux; th grandson, Albert Grass, an Ameri can soldier who died a hero in thi World war. Two Stories Related. Here follows the story of each as related by Mr. Sherman: "John Grass, Sioux chieftain, was an orator of no mean ability. Unlettered, he swayed the councils o. his people with a rude eloquence that was well night irresistible George R. Pearsons of Ft. Dodge father-in-law of Senator J. P. Dolliver, who was inspector of Indian agencies during the first Cleveland administration, was a great admirer of Grass and once told me teat as a boy in Vermont he had heard Daniel Webster deliver an oration, and the only man he could compare with Webster was John Grass. "I always supposed that Grass was a member of the Blackfeet Sioux, but he signed the Ft. Laramie treaty of 1868 as an Ogalalla. However, this might have been an error on the part of the commissioners. Grass had gone to the land set apart for good Indians before my advent in the west but I knew members of his family very well and bought right-of-way for the c M. St. P. Ry from one of them, Robert Grass. Killed Near Soissons. "A grandson, Albert Grass, was killed in action near Soissons, France, while serving with the A. E. F. and thereby hangs a tale. The allies were annoyed by the Germans tapping their lines of tel- ephonic communication thereby ob taining information not intended for them. "With their well-known efficien cy the Germans had men in their ranks who spoke every language o continental Europe, but had none vvho spoke Sioux. An American officer, equally resourceful, conceived the plan of sending Albert Grass forward to learn what he could of the enemy's strength and position and report back to a Sioux comrade at the receiving end of the line. "This worked very well for Q time; the Germans were non-pluss- ed by the new and strange language that rippled over the telephone line which they were unable to understand. But a low flying plane hovered over the locality and finally located Albert and dropped a bomb on him and Albert was gathered to his fathers. Body Brought Back Home. "Major A. B. Welch of Mandan, ST. Dak., who commanded the Sioux battalion, wrote me that he found Albert's body in a shell hole near Soissons and brought it back to Standing Rock to rest among his eople. He was buried at Cannon 3all, N. Dak., under the auspices of he Catholic church and the Amerian Legion, with a strange mixture af religious rites and tribal cus- oms. "The photograph of the elder Grass depicts a lean and sinewy warrior of hostile days in barbaric splendor. The other is of a handsome youth in the uniform of his country, which by the way has been none too kind to his people." Visitor at Orchard Home Is Injured From Mower ORCHARD, July 15.--Roger Rice, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Rice, who has been visiting at the Dennis Balsley farm home, cut a deep gash in his leg Friday afternoon. He stepped in front of the mower to look into a hole in the ground. The horses started up. He was taken to Osage where he was treated. Hampton Council Offers $37,350 as Year Budget HAMPTON, July 15.--A budget of 537,350 has been requested for the next fiscal year by the city council, which will slightly increase the taxes over last year. This includes only expenditures paid by taxes. Total expenditures this year amounted to $46,139 as compared to $64,281 the preceding year. Mrs. Spellman Buried. LAKE MILLS, July 15.--Funeral services for Mrs. Catherine Spellman, 83, were held at the Catholic church here Monday morning at 10 Bobbers Frightened Away. ALGONA, July 15.--A second' attempt to break into an Algona tore was made early Friday when wo men broke the rear door latch nd removed the bar of the Hub lotting store. They were evidently cared away by the night watchman, H. A. Van Alstyne who ap- eared as the men made their get- way in a car.
