"Coronado Rbythrn" and "Personal Maid's Secret," composing the double bill which ends E'riday at the Palace, provide fresh and honestly funny comedy, featuring the antics of Leon Errol, Berton Churchill, Jack Haley and Andy Devine in the first picture and Ruth Donnelly and Arthur Treacher in the second. Both pictures fall a bit flat in a couple of spots, however, due probably to imperfect direction of Miss Donnelly when she endeavors to emote with an extremely tragic air, and to a couple of quite unnecessary parts in the script of "Coronado Rhythm." You will enjoy both films, particularly the music during the comic sequences featuring Errol, Haley and Churchill. STUDY PLEAS ON FOREST RESERVE lowans Ask Government to Accept Options on Land in Southern Iowa. WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. tSB--The National Forest Reservation commission studied today the pleas of Iowa spokesmen to accept options on about 40,000 acres of southern Iowa land as the nucleaus of a national forest reserve in Iowa'. The commission yesterday re' ceived a petition signed by Senator Louis Murphy and the entire housa delegation. In addition there was a stack of telegrams and letters from civic groups and public leaders urging acceptance. G. B. MacDonald, Iowa forester, warned that unless the options were accepted it might be difficult to get new ones. Representative Fred Biermann of Decorah said "the prerequisites laid down by the commission have been met. We are asking now that Iowa be made a part of this forestry program." Representative Hubert Utterback of Des Moinea said there would be many uses for a forest development in Iowa. L. F. Kniepp of the forest service declared there was general agreement that some Iowa land must be put into forests and that about 140 letters and telegrams had been received from Iowa urging the purchase. Others appearing in behalf of the plan were Representatives B. M. Jacobsen of Clinton, Otha D. Wearin of Hastings and Edward C. Eicher of Washington. _ENDS XOMTE 2 Ace Hits TOM VIRGINIA BROWN .

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. kB-- Congressional sources disclosed today the agriculture department had recommended a tightening up of corn loan regulations but no reduction to the Joan value. The recommendations were reported to have been made to the Commodity Credit corporation and congressmen close to the situation expressed confidence the suggestions would be followed. Secretary Wallace at his press conference yesterday declined to discuss the recommendations but said he expected the Commodity Credit Corporation to make an announcement within a few days. Might Want Reduction. Wallace previously had indicated he thought the Reconstruction Finance corporation which provides funds for the 45 cents a bushel loans approved for the 1935 crop might want a reduction in the loans because of the loss of AAA's production control. There were several difficulties in the way of reducing the loan value now, congressmen said. They noted that it would mean that farmers who took out loans early would be better off than those who had not yet asked for federal credit to store their corn in farm warehouses sealed by state authorities. Percentage Smaller. Senator Louis Murphy (D.-Iowa) noted also that corn loans now are a smaller percentage of parity than cotton loans. Indications were that if the agriculture department's recommendations are carried out, the Commodity Credit corporation would seek greater protection for its loans by nore care in making the loans. Presumably, it would mean more rigid adherence to standards of jrading, condition of cribs and a ·loser inspection of corn and cribs, including' more careful estimates of the quantity of grain sealed. The onry security for the 45 cents a bushel loans is the sealed corn. Break Ground for New Atlantic School Tax Refunds Ordered by Federal Court to Four Iowa Processors OTTUMWA, Jan. 23.

Green, 69. of the court of claims, author of the first bonus bill that became law, leaned back In his chair and said, "I told them so." He referred in an lnterevie\v yesterday to a day in 1924 when as a republican representative from Iowa he was chairman of the house ways and means committee, and had perfected his "adjusted compensation bill." He regarded it as a sort of paid up life insurance policy for the World war veteran. "Some of the members," he said, "wanted to load the bill down with amendments. I wouldn't let them. Vote ARftlnst It. " 'If you try to stop us,' " he said they told him, " 'we'll vote ae-ainst it.''" Judge Green said he looked at his colleagues and smiled. "Oh, no you won't gentlemen," he replied. "You'll vote for it and congressmen will continue to vote for a long, long time." He introduced his hill under a motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill. This cut off amendments and left only a limited time for debate. Speaker Long-worth, had privately to recognize him. The bill passed with more than the necessary two-thirds majority. Judge Green recalled. No Gigantic Outlay.
