FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 12 1934 At Mason City THEATERS "ESKIMO" STARTS TUESDAY AT OECL. Authentic in every respect and with an Eskimo and his wife as hero and heroine, "Eskimo" begins a four day engagement Tuesday at the Cecil. Capt. Peter Freuchen, world authority on Eskimos and Arctic regions, is the author of the story and accompanied the expedition wffich spent a winter in the Arctic in order to film this picture. * * * Herbert Mundln, cockney British- er, steals the Palace program which plays through Tuesday. His part in the picture "Ever Since Eve" as one of three guardians of George O'Brien allows his facial expressions full rein. The best scene .features the culmination of a drinking bout between Mundin and Betty Blythe who plays the mother of the heroine. Mundin's attempts to look dignified and composed are worth your money. George O'Brien thrills as usual with his marvelous physique. "The Meanest Gal in Town" has numerous good spots, each of the five comedians featured drawing about equal shares of the credit. c * a Will Rogers performs in his usual easy-going but effective manner in "Mr. Skitch." The trials which he and his family face in their trip across the country are full of humor with Zasu Pitts constantly resigning herself to her bitter fate. This picture ends Tuesday evening at the Strand. a * "GOLDDIGGERS OF 1988" BEXtJRN TO PLAY IOWA "Golddiggers of 1933," one of the most successful musical comedies ever screened, begins a three day engagement Tuesday at the Iowa theater. * a o "David Harum," Will Rogers' la- raunsT MOWWIK m mm ENDS TUESDAY "THE MEANEST GAL IN TOWN" Zasu Pitts --El Brendel Pert Kelttm -- Skeeta Gtiluher Ju.

In a way, it is rather unfortunate for everyone concerned that Garbo and Dietrich are contemporary-probably more unfortunate for Miss Dietrich than for Miss Garbo. "DARK HAZARD" IS NEW ROBINSON FILM Beginning a three day engagement Wednesday at the Palace is "Dark Hazard," Edward G. Robinson's latest picture which stars him in the role of a happy-go T lucky gambler. The name of the film is also the name of a dog that wins plenty of "velvet" for Robinson. 'Miss Fane's Baby Is Stolen" is the second feature on the same bill. 6 * ·. Buck Jones In "The Fighting Code" plays Friday and Saturday at the Iowa with Diane Sinclair in the feminine lead. Plenty of fast action features this western. CharlesCityNews WERDER IS DEAD IN CHARLES CITY Rites for Pioneer Resident to Be Held Tuesday at Residence.

FREDSCHNELLER WRITES ARTICLE D i s c u s s e s Advertising of Weeklies in "Iowa Publisher." Frederic J. Schneller, former member of the Globe-Gazette staff, now Identified with the advertising department -of the Milwaukee Journal, is author of a featured article in the current issue of "Iowa Publisher," magazine of the University of Iowa school of journalism and the Iowa Press association. "Is Iowa's Famed Weekly Press Begging for Charity and Special Consideration?" is the title of the article. In it the former Mason Cityan, a graduate of the university, develops the thought that so- licing advertising as a matter of loyalty to home town is making a mendicant of the newspapers of America. "If a weekly paper has merit as advertising medium, and we all know it does," Mr. Schneller suggests in his article, "this is reason enough for those who have a product or a service to advertise. Why doesn't every editor tell the story of his newspaper to the businessman in a forceful and coherent manner, with a sales call directly to the prospect, and not to his readers ? "Advertising · is an economic necessity and there are scores of reasons why business cannot flourish without it And newspaper advertising is the most valid of all advertising. Isn't such argument stronger, a greater appeal for advertising, than begging for support from local merchants merely because they should be loyal to the hometown newspaper?" The principal editoral in the magazine, headed "The Laborer Is Worthy of His Hire," was inspired by the Schneller views. The conclusion is that a major difficulty in country newspapering grows out of the fact that "the subscriber does not pay what his paper is worth." And the remedy "is for him to pay Normal times: A period when a No. 1 bankroll seldom belongs to a No. 4 man.--Midwest Review. DARUNS OLD COUPLE ACROSS THE COURT.
