At Mason City's THEATERS A seven-mile cavalcade wound its way thru Cahuenga Pass, California, recently--the strangest big parade, perhaps, of all time. Five thousand persons made up the mighty horde bound for a wide expanse of plain 20 miles .south of Los Angeles, where Radio Pictures was to film the most dramatic spectacle of contemporary time--the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889. Flanked by squadrons of motor police with the red spotlights staining the highway, oxen and horses drew hundreds of covered wagons, buggies, surrios, ox carts and incongruous vehicles of all descriptions up the long wide road. At daybreak the next morning the cannon boomed its signal and the record throng roared its way across the prairie in the 'mightiest, maddest moment ever recorded oft celluloid--the land rush sequence in Radio's "Cimarron," which opened a one-week engagement Saturday at the Cecil theater. Old-time plainsmen, veterans of the Oklahoma Run itself, saw the drama of their lives re-enacted As the picturew as made thousands surged over the starting line with the same fighting determination of the original land-hungry horde. The weird vehicles, the livestock, men afoot, on horseback, and even astride bicycles swept over the prairie like water thru a broken dam. --o-While "Cimarron" IK at tho Ce ell,, the first show each day wil start at 12:30 p. m. instead of one o'clock, the regular opening time This temporary policy took effect Saturday at the Cecil where "Cim arron" is playing a one-week en gagement. --o-A pretty problem in what constitutes honor is unraveled in "The Delightful Rogue," which is to be presented for the last time Saturday evning at the Iowa theater. Rod La Rocque is featured in this all-talking picture. --o-Richard Dlv Is to he at the Iowa theater Sunday and Monday in the Radio all-talking picture, "Shooting Straight."

Lawlor, causes him to follow the straight and narrow path. Others in the cast are James Neill, Mathew Betz and William Janney.

TO INVESTIGATE CEMENT PRICES Senator Norris Introduces Resolution to Probe Industry. By BADFOBD E. MOBLEY. Staff Correspondent, WASHINGTON, ' Feb. 21.--The Iowa cement industry will be under investigation by the federal trade commission for alleged price- fixing as a result of the resolution by Senator George Norris which has been acted upon favorably by the senate, and will be considered by the trade commission as soon as possible. Norris proposed his resolution last week after telling the senate that he has gathered evidence of wide-spread price parallel in the cost of cement, an important subject at present, he said, in view of the increase in building and road construction during the period of depression. Recalls Duty Fight. Norris' attack on the cement industry recalls the warm fight in the senate over the proposed duty on this commodity, fought bitterly at the time as 'a direct blow at the building trades. The investigation waich the trade commission has been ordered to conduct will deal for the most part with activities of trade associations composed of either manufacturers or dealers in cement. To this extent it will include all local manufacturers, altho the commission has not announced details of the survey, and will not probably for some time. Prices Are Uniform. The commission is charged with making a report to the senate whether the actions of the cement industry thru trade associations, manufacturers, or dealers constitute a violation of the anti-trust laws or on an infringement of unfair trade practice regulations. Many complaints have been received from all parts of the country :hat prices quoted of cement are virtually uniform, Norris said, in urging the senate to adopt his resolution. The Nebraska senator said he klered the alleged uniformity of i as indicative of agreements : arbitrarily and to maintain a i-ice on the commodity. IS SHE HAPPY!
