At Mason City "HOOPLA" IS WELL DONE BY GOOD CAST Adapted from John Kenyon Nicholson's stage play "The Barker," Clara Bow'g "Hoopla" has all the advantages of motion picture production stunts and makes the most of them. The feature plays at the Cecil theater through Friday. The carnival background is perfection -- and Clara keeps it as background, to offer a likeable character ':o the screen audience as Lou, the 'cootch" dancer who starts to wreck the plans of two lives, but runs into love complications. Preston Foster as Nifty, and Richard Cromwell, Nifty's son Chris, complete the trio which dominates the picture, and do it very well. Minna Gombell as Carrie, Nifty's 'girl," is a case-hardened trouper who deserves special mention. And for comedy, ta,ke a choice from Ma Benson (Florence Roberts) or Hap 'Herbert Munclin), with James Jleason as Jerry and Roger Imliof as Colonel Gowdy aiding the cause. · * f NEW COMEDY TEAM IN DUNN AND TREVOR A new and delightful comedy :eam in James Dunn and Claire Trevor ia discovered in the film, ·Jimmy and Sally," playing at the Palace through Friday in half of a double feature program. Dunn, aa a publicity man with a sparkling ine of wit and Miss Trevor, in the role of his secretary-sweetheart combine to make the picture an ·utilising and entertaining-film. Completing the double feature bill s the picture, "White Woman," a iungle drama featuring Charles -.aughton, Carole Lombard, Charles 3ickford and Kent Taylor. Laughton rules the upper Malay jungle and Miss Lombard, in the role of a cafe singer who fears deportation Because of a malicious scandal and so accompanies. Laughton to the jungle, display some fine acting in the portrayal of their roles. If a movie fan is an addict of jungle films, this will please his taste. · * * MUSICAL UEVUE ENDS THURSDAY AT STRAND "Gold Diggers of 1933" finishes ita run at the Strand theater Thursday.

THOMASWOULD REMINT ALL GOLD Seeks Support for Plan to Allow President to Call in Yellow Metal. WASHINGTON, Dec. 14. (/P)--The federal reserve could issue nearly $3,000,000,000 in new currency, all of it backed by more than the 40 per cent of required gold, but Senator Thomas. (D,, Okla.), inflationist, sought support today for a plan under which the president could impound, devalue and remint all of the yellow metal. As Thomas explained his proposal, embodied in a bill he said would be submitted to the president, it was designed to remove doubt as to the chief executive's authority to call in gold and at the same time assure that the government made the profit from any devaluation. Disclosed In Figures. The currency possibility, which the federal system was said to be prepared to make a reality as rapidly as conditions permitted, was disclosed in figures on the bank's condition. These showed that without changing the statutory gold value of $20.67 an ounce, the system held enough gold to issue 52,920,728,000 in new reserve notes, a little more than half the money now in circulation. The difficulty, it was explained, was that the channels through which the money could be distributed were stopped up. Loans by members banks continue low so they have not demanded much cash from the Central Reserve banks. Conditions would have to stimulate lending- by the member banks, otherwise the new currency would stay in reserve bank vaults. Gold Colled hi. Thomas said his idea was that the gold should all be called in and paid for with gold certificates at its then dollar value. The metal would be melted remolded and revalued. The man who then came back with, say, a 510 bill to trade it for gold could get Just half as much gold as he turned in if the devaluaticn were 50 per cent. The extent of the revaluation would be left to the president.
