"For two years I suffered with irregularities, frequent headaches and general weakness. I tried various medicines but all to no avail. I read about your highly praised medicine, Lydia E.

I am a stenographer and bookkeeper and I have recommended the Vegetable Compound to other girls who work."--Stella T. Culkosky, 2413 Delaware Street, Gary, Indiana. A comedy cast of adults am juveniles, known wherever motio: pictures are shown, was assemble by Paramount for "Finn and Plat tie," the Donald Odgen Stewar comedy picture which will show a the Palace theater for four days starting Saturday. The humorou Haddock adventures, directed bj Norman Taurog and Norman Me Leod from a screen play by Sair Mintz, has that rubber-kneed come dian who won first screen honors in "Only Saps Work," Leon Err6l In the leading comic role. Zazi Pitts, mournful-eyed, sad-voicec feminine fun-maxer, whose single scene in Nancy Carroll's "The Devil's Holiday," as the hotel telephone girl, almost turned the picture into a screaming comedy, is Mrs. Haddock to the life. Mitzi Green, the "I've Got a Secret" chile of "Sweetie," and a star in her own right at 9 years of age, is seen with Jackie Searle, the "Rid brother' of "Tom Sawyer," as the Haddock hooligans. Others in the cast include Lilyan Tashman, blond siren of the upper rank o£ film favorites- Regis Toomey, seen most recently with George Bancroft in "Scanda Sheet." --o^ "Cimarron" opens a one-week engagement Saturday at the Ceci theater. Spectacular scenes abounc in this production, but they are a new kind. Thru the wizardry of tht director, they transcend mere spectacles 'and become inspiring flashes which punctuate and make the production as realistic as early Oklahoma itself. "Cimarron" has been adapted faithfully from Edna Ferber's novel. It stands as the screen's first notable amalgamation of spectacle and story, in which the mighty characterizations of thi? author have not been sacrificed in attaining immensity of background Richard Dix plays Yancey Cravat vivid, brilliant, striking central character of the Ferber novel, Irene Dunne is seen as Cabra his wife. Heading one of the m'ost brilliant supporting casts e.ver brot to the screen are such players as Estello Taylor, William Collier Jr Edna May Oliver, Nance O'Neii and George E. Stone. ' ~*~ The spectacle of a woman torn between love for a man and a sense of duty has always possessed a romantic interest. It makes little difference whether the duty involved ia to her country or her family or whether the man she loves is worthy of her devotion or not! It's the spirit of the thing that wins the sympathy! An appealing depiction of a woman in such a spot is contained in "The Down Trail," Columbia's latest Buck Jones' feature, which comes to the Strand theater Saturday. The girl in the case is, June Denton daughter of the richest cattleman in the Texas Panhandle district--and, the man is Larry Williams, the young sheriff of the county. When Larry learns that Junes brother is guilty of murder, he has no alternative but to arrest him. As a result not only the Den;on family but all the cowmen in the vicinity rise up in revolt. June is in an agony of indecision. Shall she remain loyal to her family and condemn the man she loves^-or vice versa? After much · thrilling dramatic action, a satisfactory climax is reached. A sound picture of tho sea, with wafes breaking over the bow of a ship, the hawsers groaning and the crew, chanting, is the attraction at the Iowa theater Friday and Saturday.'It is "The "Delightful Rogue" with Rod La Rocque. The story, according to critics, is replete- with drilling adventure with a tropical setting that no doubt surpasses in scenic beauty any film ever booked at the Iowa. Rita Le Roy, a tall beautiful girl, whose entrance into pictures dates with the talkie era 'lays opposite. La Rocque as an is- and cabaret dancer. It is to Miss La Roy that the theme song of the fay film is entrusted--"Gay Love." vritten by Oscar Levant and Sidney Jara, Radio Pictures song-writing earn who turned' out the national it, "My Dream Memory " first in- roduced in "Street Girl." --o-"Tho .Royal Family of Broadway" is being presented for the last time Friday evening at the Palace.

Marion Davies heads the cast. "Hold Everything" is to* be shown for the last time Friday at the Strand. --o-Meteor May Strike America Only Once During 9,300 Years IOWA CITY, Feb. 20. (UP)--An article appearing in the current issue of Popular Astronomy by C. C. Wylie, head of the astronomy department at the University of Iowa, states that an American maybe hit by a meteor once in about 9,300 years. The area in which a meteor can fall and injure a person is about 10 square feet, Wylie explained. The United States consists of 3,000,000 square miles and there are 120,000,000 persons in the United States. . Hence the entire population actually .occupies only 43 square miles of the total area. With the assumption that the population is uniformly distributed, there would have to be 70,000 meteoric falls before one would drop in the space occupied by human beings. It has been judged that there is a meteoric fall every 16 months, Wylie said. For the full 70,000 to fall would take 93,000 years. Because of the probable inaccuracy of the judgment and the fact that many of the falls are too small to be considered, Wylie multiplied the rate by 10 which indicated that the American nation may expect one death every 9,300 years caused by a meteor.
