SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 8 1935 VENETIAN SCENE IS QUITE CHILLY Actors" Ardor Cools Along Canals Built for Palace Film. Thoughts ol moonlit nights and drifting gondolas on the canals of Venice may spell romance to the world, but as far aa Hollywood is concerned, it's just a plain matter of red flannels. How could one, asks Hollywood, look romantically entranced at three o'clock in the morning with one's teeth chattering? How could a beautiful girl get that love-struck look if she were shivering with goose pimples? Red flannels are'a necessary factor in romance and love in Venice according to the movie makers. Out at Warner Bros, studios they filmed a picture titled "Broadway Gondolier," which reunited Dick Powell and Joan Bloadell, the popular stars of "Gold Diggers of 1933" under the direction of Lloyd Bacon. A two weeks schedule was allotted for the Venetian sequence. In the picture, which will open at the Palace on Friday, there are winding canals, gondolas, balconies and terraces. There are cafes, cabarets, picturesque bridges and colorful touches of the famous old canal city. It is a moonlit night in summer--on the screen.

Enormous Colonies of Passenger Pigeons Once Were Reported in Iowa IOWA CITY, Aug. 8.--Enormous colonies of passenger pigeons once made their homes in Iowa. Their roosts and nesting areas were anywhere from a few miles to 50 miles in extent and located mostly in the larger hardwood forests of the middle west. Single trees have been found supporting more than 100 nests. The story of the life and destruction of the passenger pigeon is told by E. D. Nauman in "The Palimpsest." The passenger pigeon was about the size of our domestic pigeon, bu: it was longer and very graceful in form, and was most handsome in coloration. In the sunshine the feathers of its head, neck and back showed about all the colors of the rainbow. The specimens in museums give but a meager impression of the appearance of the live bird. The passenger pigeon inhabited the timbered area of eastern North America. However, when nuts, acorns and the seeds of trees, which constituted their natural food, became scarce, they made excursions into fields of grain; and, by reason of their immense numbers, they did considerable damage to farm crops. Pioneers saw them passing over United Fruit Co. 33 East State Street PHONE 749 FREE DELIVERY CHERRIES--APRICOTS For Canning CHERRIES, 1A (Sturgeon Bay) qt. 1UC 16 quart crate $1.49 E.

The flocks were frequently so dense they obscured the sun like passing clouds. At night they settled down in the trees along the streams to roost. When destruction came, however, it came by the hand of the white man, and in a hundred different ways. The great forests were mostly destroyed; the pigeons enticed into open fields by food and netted by thousands; their nests were robbed; they were shot, clubbed, and trapped in every conceivable way. At every migration their numbers became smaller, until about 1880 Nauman saw the last of them. The final known survivor died in the Cincinnati zoological gardens in 1914. No one will ever again sec a live passenger pigeon. Leaves for Santa Monica.
