Such taxes are a burden upon the premium of the policyholder, notwithstandins they are collected from the companies. The original purpose of taxes on the premiums paid by policyholders was to maintain state supervision of the business. However, such ,supervision now uses but a few cents of each dollar so collected. The balance goes into the general funds of-the states. , Add to the Cost of Insurance These special and regular state taxes are factors in the cost of insurance. The opinion of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States has been expressed as follows: . . . Special state taxes now levied on policyholders through insurance companies should not be considered as a source of general revenue, but should be reduced ,to the total in each state which will adequately support such stale's departmental supervision . . . . " - STdCk FIRE INSURANCE companies transact by far the greater portion' of the fire insurance business of the country. They want you to realize this tex situation and its effect upon the cost of your insurance.

HER SINGING LAUDED Associated Press Photo Agnes Yosliiko MiyakiuVa, 19, Japanese soprano who formerly lived in Sacramento, Cal., won the praise of critics when she made her opera debut in Paris. At Mason City's THEATERS A dazzling new leading: lady, one who has already captured a million hearts on Broadway, is seen in the intriguing comedy drama of pampered youth, "Fast and Loose," which will open a three-day run at the Strand theater Wednesday. She is Miriam Hopkins, young, blond lovely. Miss Hopkins, who went directly from a hit part in Broadway's sensational production of "Lysistra- ta" to the cameras for "Fast and Loose," joined a cast of experienced stage actors at the Paramount New York studio in making this Avery Hopwood play. Charles Starrett, one of New York's best looking and talented leading men; Frank Morgan, who starred in "Topaze" on the stage last season, have other featured parts in the production. Carole Lombard, the little blond charmer of Charles Rogers' "Safety in Numbers," is the only member of the featured cast who hasn't served time behind the footlights. "Fast and Loose," made directly from the play, "The Best People," by David Gray and Avery Hopwood, is story of the emotion-stirring doings of the modern younger generation. "Fighting .Caravans," starrine Gary ; Cooper and Lily Damita, closes a foin^daj'.ehggnBnjaht at the Palace Tuesday eveiling. --a-The Cecil will present "Reducin-*," with Marie Dressier and Polly Moran for the last time Tuesdav night. ' --o-"The Storm," featuring Lime Velez and Paul Cavanagh, will be seen and heardf for the last time Tuesday evening at the Siraad. Now conies the cinema'* expose of the inside facts about Centra] European royalty, dazzling courts, cold out regal queens, human, playful kings, the love affairs of princesses forbidden to marry outside of the royal families. But it's all in fun in Radio pictures' "The Royal Bed," a delicious satire, whimsically human and real, opening Wednesday at the Cecil theater. Lowell Sherman playa the title role in the picture which he also directed with a skill as subtle and keen as his acting. Nance O'Neil of starge and screen fame is the queen who dominates and "hen- r-cks" her husband; Mary Astor is the princess who has a love affair with the king's secretary, enacted by Anthony Bushel!, and turns down the crown prince of another mythical kingdom, Hugh Trevor. "And despite the fact that the story is witty, whimsical satire, the inside facts about royalty come to light just the same," Sherman says. "Being a king or a queen or a princess of a Central European king- dcm isnjt at all what one might think it, from the American point of view. We forget that royalty is very human." ·--o-- Boasting ono of the most capable dramatic casts since the advent of talking pictures and adapted from one of the greatest of Broadway stage successes, "He Knew Women," all-talking'comedy drama, will open n three-day engagement Wednesday at the Iowa theater. Lowell Shermon, suave, sophisticated screen favorite, and Alice Joyce, one i o£ the foremost of feminine atars, play the leading roles. They are supported by David Manners, who scored 'a notable hit as "Raleigh" in "Journey's End" and Frances Dada, competent newcomer from the legitimate stage. "He Knew Women" is adapted from the Broadway success "The Second Man," by S. N. Behrman, acknowledged as one of the greatest American playwrights and author of a number of outstanding dramatic hits. It is a smart drama of modern manners, produced in notable fashion. --o-"Scandal Sheet," opening nt the Palace Wednesday, is considered one of George Bancroft's most successful pictures. It is a newspaper story, Bancroft playing the role of the fearless editor who prints the whole truth about everybody until his beautiful wife, Kay Francis, starred in this production, becomes involved. Clive Brook is the third member of the eternal triangle. A sap is a man who spends 525' for a gun and risks getting shot to protect the 58.70 in his pants pocket.--Davenport Times. j RELIEF GROUPS FORMED IN IOWA Committees Will Help Find Jobs for Unemployed Men in State.

These substances are carbohydrates and fats, proteins, minerals or ash and vitamins. There- rote, he said, feeds are valuable insofar as they furnish these things.
