"Follow the Fleet," their lates effort, is scheduled through Tues day at the Cecil. Suffice it to say that Astaire an- Rogers give you plenty for you money, and allow your reviewer t throw some bouquets at Harrie Hilliard.

Scott, as you no doubt remember, did right well with Astaire and Ginger in "Roberta." There is also a diminutive monkey a pet of Astaire's which came so close to stealing the show in each scene in which it appeared that the directors allowed it only three or four spots.

MARTIN MOONEY'S ·EXCLUSIVE STORY" In a dramatic gunfight up and down a dimly lighted hallway in New York's Harlem district, the most notorious gang of hoodlums since prohibition times is wiped out in a battle led by Harry Barton, crusading young newspaper attorney. For further details, see "Exclusive Story," starting Tuesday at the Palace. Franchot Tone and Madge Evans head a brilliant cast which includes Stuart Brwin, Joseph Calleia, Robert Barrat, J. Farrell MacDonald, Louise Henry and many others. 'Exclusive Story" was written by Hartin Mooney, who recently faced fire from the grand jury and was sent to prison for refusing to divulge the source of the informa- :ion written into a series of stirring articles in a New York newspaper. The most exciting film in many a month, it is based on a real-life newspaperman's experiences with he powers behind the notorious 'policy racket" of metropolitan cities. Swiftly and dramatically it hows the machinations of the gang behind the "million dollar acket" and its destruction by a r oung attorney working on information supplied by the daughter of a victim. This is Tone's first picture since his widely acclaimed portrayal in 'Mutiny on the Bounty," and the irst in which he is teamed with iladge Evans. On the same bill is "Escape from Devil's Island," thrilling tale of the mysterious French penal colony off the coast of South America. In an atractire state setting, the It Kat Klub revue comes to the ecil for two days starting Wednes- ay. The show embodies music, ing, dancing comedy and nov- Hy. Paul Cholet, star of radio and usical comedy, is billed as master f ceremonies. "It had to Happen" vill provide the screen fare. * » * ANN HARDING, HERBERT IARSHALL PLEASE AT PALACE Either Ann Harding or Herbert Marshall can always be depended n to give a smooth, sophisticated erformance, and the result, when ley appear together, is "The Lady "onsents," which finished its local ngagement Monday at the Palace, he story of their love and married fe, the former, apparently, and the alter, actually, interrupted for a ime by Margaret Lindsay's con- uest of Marshall, is perfect for the air. Ann Harding, previously a fa- orite with this reviewer nearly en- rely because of her acting ability, eems a little more beautiful than usual in "The Lady Consents." The supporting- cast is good all the way trough, with Edward Ellis exceptionally fine as Marshall's father.

Arlen does a good but uninspired piece of acting and the others in the cast mostly unknowns, are all right, bul the picture itself seems a little out of kilter. In modernizing Harold Bell Wright's novel, the movie writers have made the play a little silly in spots and have done a rather poor piece of writing all around. Charles City News Parents Given Blame for Crime by Youth by Waterloo Sheriff CHARLES CITY--Sheriff H. T. Wagner, Waterloo, was guest speaker at the second of the series of Lenten union meetings Sunday night at the high school auditorium and gave, from his 26 years experience, his views of crime, its sources and methods of correction. He declared the present youth no more criminally minded or careless than the last generation but that the parents of the present day were 10 times as bad; that the average of criminals at the present time is 23 and that most crime in its inception can be laid at the door of bad home influences or lack of good ones. Public sentiment, the sheriff stated, is one of the best agencies of crime prevention and he cited two instances to show how it has worked in the past: The aroused public sentiment over the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby, which virtually ended that crime in America, and the desire of the citizens of Chicago, greatly heightened by the murder of Mayor Cermak, to rid the city of gangsters during the Century of Progress exposition. The speaker said that, although crime seems to be on the run, it was not licked and would always remain a serious menace as long as there was such a thing as human nature and he earnestly voiced the desire of all law enforcement officers for more co-operation on the part of citizens in general and a higher feeling of responsibility and greater intolerance of crime by the public. The Rev. G. A. Hess, pastor of .he Christian church, was director of the service in which all the churches in the city .are co-operat- .ng during the Lenten season.
