At Mason City's THEATERS Marie -Dressier and Poljy Moruii lave scored another comedy "ten- strike" .with ""Reducing," their latest Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture which opened Saturday at the Cecil the-, ater for four days. "Reducing" ha* been admirably directed by Charles "Chuck" Riesner, who also wielded the megaphone for "Caught Short," the previous comedy triumph of the hilariously funny pair. The picture pokes fun at beauty parlors in the same hilarious way its predecessor took a fling at AVall Street. The plot c o n c e r n s Pauline Rochay, beauty parlor expert, who invites her sister, Marie, to come from the country for a visit with her whole family. What happens when the buxom Miss Dressier loads her extensive tribe aboard a Pullman, and unloads them at the Grand Central station, New York, starts the laugh ball rolling. As is customary with modern full length comedies, a serious love story underlies the laugh- making. In "Reducing" it concerns Anita Page and William Bakewell; Sally Eilers and William (Buster) Collier, Jr. . --o-Hailed as one of the talking screen's most thrilling pictures. "The Storm," Universal'. 1 ) romantic drama of the human triangle in a snowbound cabin in the Canadian wilds, opened a four-day engagement Saturday at the Strand theater. Lovely, vivacious Lupe Velez has the leading feminine role, thai of a little French-Canadian girl. The male angles of the triangle are pur- trayed by two of the most capabl actors of stage and screen--Paul Cavanagh and William Boyd. The human situation in "The Storm" alone would furnish drama and suspense enough for any pic tured Added to this, however, are natural thrills of a surpassing nature. The company filming "The Storm" spent weeks in the. high Sierras of California to obtain the proper location for the outdoor scenes. Outstanding among the natural thrills are a tremendous avalanche, terrific blizzards, and shooting rapids by ', nae. at ever- present peril to those engaged. --o--If you have rend'Edna Ferhor's recent novel,' "Cimarron," you will "be interested to learn that this book which so beautifully and dramatically traces the turbulent life of a militant pioneer from, the .days of the Oklahoma frontier down to our own times, has been adapted to the screen. The picture will be presented one week at the Cecil com- I mencinjj Feb. 21. ·· I --o-Dickinson's Daughter I Is Operated Upon for Appendicitis; Resting WASHINGTON, Feb. 7.--Mra Rollin Hunter, formerly Miss Ruth Dickinson, was operated upon fo: appendicitis at a Washington hospital this week. An early recovery is expected. Mrs. Hunter j.s the daughter of Representative and Mrs. L. J. Dickinson. MORE STRIFE YET TO BE EXPECTED (Continued From Fage 1). contribution if afforded the oppor tiinity. * * * THE main obstacle is that the new ·*· new congress will not meet un til Dec. 7 unless President Hoover calls an extra session, and he surel will not do so in order to get the $25,000,0000 allowance made, considering that he strongly disapproves of it. Yet there is one means by which the senate can force him to issue the summons, and. once called together, congress can do whatever it pleases. The senate can accomplish this by refraining from passing bills granting money to run the government beyond the end of the current fiscal year, ending June 30. Should it do so (even tho only one cabinet department is left unprovided for) an extra call will be unavoidable some ime between March i and June 30. ALL SIGNS are that such is the ·**- policy the senate will adopt. Obviously, if there is an extra ses- lon, for the purpose of over-riding the president's wishes, It will open With relations ; :greatly. strained be- Jtwe'en'the white house and congress, the senate especially. 'Even tho the president's-hand is forced, as suggested above]- many politicians believe he will delay calling the lawmakers together until about June 1, when the winter will be over and the ?2o,000,000 not so much needed. Still, that will not prevent great bitterness of feeling- between the occupant of the executive mansion and the legislators who are opposed to him. Not only will there be at issue the matter of the $25.000,000, but many other sources of friction are certain to develop themselves. Indeed, predictions are freely made that the extra session, If called, will continue, with constant quarreling all summer and fall, until it merges into the regular winter session, ending only with the opening of next year's pre- convention activities, preceding the 1932 presidential campaign. . * * * PRESIDENT HOOVER-S supp'ort- 1- ers, who want the nation's executive head left to solve the problem of hard times without congressional criticism, contend that an extra session will be exceedingly bad for the country's business. Those who take the opposite view argue that it is precisely in such periods of stress as today's that congress is most needed. How one decides the question for himself depends upon what one thinks of Mr. Hoover's competency and fair-mindedness as compared with congress'. The rival viewpoints relative to the disputed $25,000,000 relief proposition, the nub of the wrangle on which the discussion of the moment hinges, are admirably ^set forth by two contrasting Washington publications of recent date--the Washington Post, presenting the administration's side, and the railroad brotherhoods' organ. Labor, presenting the senate's. 4 * 3 ·THE POST, in its issue of Jan. 31, ·I describes the vote for the $25.000.000 appropriation as an attempt at "a raid on the treasury for the establishment of a permanent system for feeding citizens at public expense," and in its issue of Feb. 1. adds, "In its essence" this "scheme is Socialism, which in turn leads to Communism." Labor, in its issue of Feb. 3, says: "Every distressed man will feel that President Hoover and the American Red Cross have kept him and his family hungry and co!d when congress was eager to provide food and shelter," adding that "This Is the most shocking, astounding, incredible news that has gone over the wires from the nation's capital in many a day."
