NEW YORK, Dec. 28. UP)--Joseph Stalin, head of the communist party in Russia, says the soviet government desires friendly relations with Japan but he sees a "grave danger, and we cannot but prepare to meet That Is What Stalin told Walter Duranty, Moscow correspondent of the New York Times, in an interview today. Stalin said that If the more "reasonable" elements and more "prudent" counsels prevail in Japan, the two countries can live In amity," but he added that Russia "feared that the militant faction may push the saner policies into the background." Measured by Credit. Of soviet-American trade, the communist leader said the ."volume of our trade with America for the time being' must be measured by the degree of confidence America puts in us--and this by the volume of credit." "What Foreign Commissar Lit- vinbff said in London still holds good. We are the greatest demand market and are ready to order- arid pay for--large quantities of goods. But we require satisfactory conditions of credit." Stalin said Ambassador William C. Buliitt made a "very good impression" in Moscow. Buliitt Straightforward. "What I like is that he does not talk like the average diplomat," he said. "He Is straightforward and says what he means." Stalin also had praise for President Roosevelt whom he called a "decided and courageous political leader." He said he believed business is beginning-to improve and that the lowest point in the depression is already past. Russia's most important internal problems, Stalin believes, are development of the distribution of goods between town and country, and the improvement of transportation, especially the railroads.

At Mason City THEATERS "ONLY YESTEBDAY" STARTS AT CECIL "Only Yesterday," starring Margaret Sullavan, John Boles, Edna May Oliver, Benita Hume, Reginald Denny, Billie Burke and a cast which includes almost 90 other players whose names will bo familiar to most movie-goers, shows Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Cecil theater. This picture, somewhat similar hi theme to "Back Street," is said to be even greater than that film. In the voluminous cast one is sure to recognize many of the favorites of the bygone days who have fallen to "extra" roles or whatever else they can get. * * * "Chnngo Your Luck," the all- colored road show revue which ends a two day engagement at the Palace theater Thursday night, is indeed an unique performance. Best among the various features are the two specialty dancers known as the Lucky sisters, Shorty Burch, as agile a midget as one can find, and Curtis Mosby's 12 piece stage band. The screen attraction is ail intriguing story of the strange series of circumstances which engulfed Robert Armstrong, an American, on the first night of his firat visit to London. Helen Mack supplies adequate sex appeal while the supporting cast is headed by a pickpocket called Holmes who almost steals the show itself on several occasions. * i: * "LADY FOB A DAI'" ENDS THURSDAY AT IOWA Finishing a five day engagement at th'e Iowa theater Thursday night, "Lady for a Day" offers an evening's entertainment which is hard to beat. May Robson, Warren William, Ned Sparks and Guy Kibbee head a cast which gives an excellent performance i:i a pleasing story worthy of just such acting. Guy Kibbee is at his best, as is May Robson. Ned Sparks, he of the minus expression, is cast to fine advantage as "Happy McGuire," Warren William's right hand man. The picture is a finished product, to the smallest detail. * * * "Jennie Gerhardt," featuring Sylvia Sidney, plays for the last time? Thursday night at the Strand theater. Taken from Theodore Dries- er's novel of the same name, this picture has a better plot than the majority of our modern films, and the acting is quite good. Donald Cook has the male lead. * * * NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY AT CECIL Joan Crawford and Clark Gable .in "Dancing Lady" will be shown at the Cecil up to 11 p. m. Sunday. Then, starting at 11, a special preview of "Going Hollywood" starring Bing Crosby and Marian Davles. An entire new show commencing at 11 p. m.

' Manager Tom Arthur states that there will be no advance in prices for this New Year's Eve good-time celebration. * * At the Strand theater Kriduy nnd Saturday "Shanghai Madness" features Spencer Tracy, Ralph Morgan, Fay Wrny, Eugene Pallette and Herbert Mundin. The picture vividly portrays the guerilla warfare which is almost constantly going on in China. "Havana WldoH-s,"\yith Guy Kibbee and Joan Blondell in the leading roles, should provide interesting and amusing- entertainment. This picture shares the next double bill at the Palace theater with "If I Were Free," which stars Irene Dunne, Clive Brook, Nils Asther and Henry Stephenson. This program will play three days at the Palace, starting Sunday. * * * "Fury of the Jungle," stnrring Peggy Shannon, Donald Cook, Alan Dinehart and a jungle background, plays Friday and Saturday at the Iowa theater.
