FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 7 1933 At Mason City THEATERS PLENTY OF LAUGHS IN "HER FIRST MATE" '. Slim Summervillo and Zasu Pitts collaborate to "Her First Mate" to furnish moviegoers with one of the funniest comedy farces seen on local screens for' some time. This picture plays for the last times Thursday night at the Iowa theater.' * » » "Another. Language," a sfcfrrtag vehicle for Helen Hayes, finishes a. -,two day engagement at the Strand Thursday. Robert Montgomery plays opposite Miss Hayes In this picture. As usual, Miss Hayes leaves little to be desired in portraying her role. # * 9 Louisa M. Alcott's.famous story, "Little Women," conies to the Cecil screen Saturday for a week's engagement with Katharine Hepburn 'in the leading role supported by Joan Bennett, Paul Lukas, Frances Dee, Jean Parker, 'Edna May Oliver Dr. E.

Hailed throughout the country as one of the finest pictures ever filmed, it must be good. From all reports it will drag a tear from he eye of the most hardened movie jatron. * * * STANWYCK AND BRENDEL ON NEXT PALACE BILL "Ever in My Heart" starring Barbara Stanwyck and Otto Kruger shares the next double feature program which comes to the Palace aturday for four daya with the Scandinavian star, El Brendel, in his latest film, "Olsen's Big Moment." This bill combines tragedy and comedy, which should be a satisfactory arrangement, * * * Ken Maynard heads the week-end bills at both the Strand and the 'owa, so take your pick. Or play no 'avorites and see them both. At the Strand his picture is 'Strawberry Roan," which la a tory built partially around the famous cowboy ballad singing the jraises of the bronc by that name. The film at the Iowa is "The Lone | Avenger," which portrays the cowboy star successfully solving the mysterious murder of his father and bringing the guilty parties to account for the slaying. These pictures run Friday and Saturday. * e » TWO GOOD FILMS NOW AT PALACE The double feature bill which runs through Friday at the Palace has two showa which are about equally Efood. "Stage Mother" with Alice Brady and Maureen O'Sullivan in the leading roles is extremely good in spots, particularly, stage show in which Maureen is supposed to star as Shirley Lorraine. The AlbertVna Rasche chorus gives Its usual fine performance. Ted Healy proves that he can carry on without his stooges. The idea hack of the picture is probably truer than most of as would care to believe, that is, it is readily conceivable that sheer acting ability alone will not get one to the top of the ladder for keeps. Some friend who "had something on" tha big shots would help quite a bit ia many cases. "Hell and High Water," another waterfront story by Max Miller, author of "I Cover the Waterfront," is not quite the equal of the latter picture but it is good clever entertainment. Richard Arlen gives a good account of himself, as does Judith Allen. Matsu!, a diminutive Japanese counterpart of El Brendel, :g extremely clever, as is the baby, Robert Knettles. * * * ·ANN VICKERS" IS RECOMMENDED To those who enjoy thoroughly Sinclair Lewis' style of writing and ttj situations he creates in some of his hooks, "Ann Vickers," showing at the Cecil, is a wonderful picture. To others it's still a good show, but the lines at times, particularly those of Walter Huston, hero, are a' little too clever (a la Lewis) and even a little impossible. Also the average playgoer might become a little weary of Ann's tendency to get into private difficulties while doing social or Safe Drivin Hint o By lolra JtotOy V«Wcle Dept. The Right of Way O UR graveyards are heavily populated with motorists who sailed along serenely under the false colors of the right- of-way banner. Actually, the term "Right-of-Way" as a hard and fast rule to follow is as old-fashioned as auto cranks and linen dusters. It's all right when you have the right of way to keep going at the Intersection, but keep your car under control because tha other fellow may think he has it, too. Don't place too much faith in him. If he doesn't stop as he should, then you must be able to stop ot there will be a smashup. Substitute in your traffic vocabulary-the axiom that there is a "Safe Way" for every emergency. Learn to depend upon the "Safe Way" and you will never be killed in a futile attempt to defend the right-of-way. SLIGHT DROP IN JOBS IS SHOWN Governmental Relief Work Not Included; Total Is Above 1932. DES MOINES, Dec. 7. £--Em- ployment in Iowa industries decreased 3.0 per cent during November, Labor Commissioner Frank E. Wenig 1 reported today. Compared 1 to a year ago, however, Wenig said the figures show a 11.0 per cent gain. The employment figures Btill were above those for August and governmental relief work was not included in the survey. The loss In industrial employment, Wenig said, was. somewhat unexpected but not particularly alarming, although seasonal declines did not account for the entire decrease. Wenig said observers over the state were inclined to attribute prison work and trying to straighten out the lives of others. Irene Dunne has the spotlight all the -way as Ann Vickers and fits her role perfectly. Walter Huston as the · judge-crook-lover seems a little unreal hut it's the part's fault rather than his own. Sdna May Oliver saves the day with her dry humor on several occasions when the situation is getting a little emotional and some of the customers are beginning to wipe their glasses. Kensett Creamery Will Hold Annual Gathering KENSETT, Dec. 7--The yearly creamery meeting will be held Saturday at Kensett in the lodge hall. Diner will be served at noon. R. M. Hall of Northwood'will give a talk after which election of officers will be held. New Hampton Will Be Host to Legion Posts of Chickasaw Dec. 14 NEW HAMPTON, Dec. 7 The Fae Stine post of the American Legion, New Hampton, will be host to the Chickasaw county Legion posts fat the county meeting Thursday, Dec. 14. Leo Duster, Cedar Rapids, state commander, and R. J. Laird, Des Moines, state adjutant, will be the principal speakers. some of the decrease to a general decline in trade, probably due to over production and underconsump- tion as a result of unrestricted activity during summer months. Some Report Losses. Industries recording employment losses over October, Wenig said, are food products, 1.8 per cent decline; textiles, 5.3 per cent; iron and steel, 9.5 per cent; lumber products, 2.9 per cent; leather products, 1.5 per cent; paper products, 1.8 per cent; patent medicines, 8.G per cent; stone and clay, 8.4 per cent. Meat packing in the food products group reported a substantial loss for the month, while the poultrj and produce establishments reported the usual seasonal gain. AH industries . in the textiles group reported losses except pearl button industry reported a slight increase over the former month. Gains Are Shown. Iron and steel groups, showed heavy curtailments in payrolls, except in the agricultural implement group. The major industries in the lumber products industry showed employment losses for the month. Leather products sustained a slight loss, due to seasonable influences. Groups reporting slight increases were tobacco and cigars 2.8 per cent, railroad carshopa, 0.8 per cent, and miscellaneous industries 0,5 per cent. The loss for the 30 day period may be considered temporary, Wenig said, particularly because the year's figures show the substantial gain over 1932. Fifi Dorsay Weds Maurice Hill After "Trial Honeymoon' HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 7 =P--After a. chaperoned "trial honeymoon," Fifi Dorsay, French film actress, and Maurice Hill, son of a Chicago manufacturer, were married yesterday in a ceremony attended only by Miss Dorsay's managers, Vernon D.
