MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 23 H 1934 WOMAN'S CLUB CONTEST PLAY RECEIVES MUCH APPROVAL 1 Act Drama 1 Brings Air of Fantasy , Capable Cast Performs Well Under Direction of Mrs. Hunter. Fantasy and satire were pleasantly mingled and charmingly presented in the one act play "Ten Minutes by the Clock," in the high school auditorium Thursday afternoon under the sponsorship of the Woman's club drama department. The play ' will be taken to Iowa City Saturday 1 to be entered in the annual play , production contest at the University \ of Iowa. | Under, the skillful direction of Mrs. E. E. Hunter, the drama which i pokes a little fun at convention, i"l moved smoothly in the rhythmic pre- r i:|cision to which it was keyed and '' gave an amusing atmosphere of i fairy-tale unreality: f i Talented Players. * The cast was made up of a group of Mason City's most talented amateurs. The role of the queen who longs to be free was interpreted beautifully by Mrs. R. E. Romey. Dr. H. K. Jones expertly played the king who frees his people from the three-minute egg hi favor of the ten- minute egg. Although R. A. Washbum had joined the cast of the piay only a KEY WEST The diamonds of this interesting qjjilt block, combined with bright, vivid colors of yellow print, plain slue, and scarlet, create a design that is well nigh unbeatable.

Overlook Flowers Yesterdays Renewed by Carrie Catt Former Mason Cityan Recalls Residence Here in Eighties. Only yesterday will be r.ecalled for some Mason -Cityans in a letter received by Miss Beulah Randolph, state convention chairman for the B. P. W. club, from Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, outstanding feminist leader. Mrs. Catt was principal of the high school and general superintendent of schools in Mason C i t y in the early eighties when the old Central school stood on the site of the ..^___ present adminis- .;MRS.C.C.CATT tration building. Those were the days when the Alaska purchase was known as Seward's folly. Standard time and the two cent postage were adopted. The Red Cross society had just been organized. Emerson and Longfellow had just died. Woman's place was in the home. B. P. W. Convention. Mrs. Catt recalls those days in her letter which is a reply to a request that she speak at the convention of the Iowa Federation of Business and Professional Women here in May. Mrs. Catt's letter follows: "Alas, I no longer am able to travel around the country making speeches. I am obliged to decline all the invitations I receive. I am very sorry, indeed, because it would give me much pleasure to visit Mason City again. Thank you for the invitation. "When I first began to teach in Mason City, it was 50 years ago and at that time I had never seen a woman physician, a woman dentist, or a woman lawer. I was studying law myself at the time, but professional women had not yet appeared in my sphere, nor had I ever seen a businesswoman of much significance. Stenographers and- typists were yet to come. Now, every morning in all the cities, women fill the cars and buses to their daily work and I think it was in the last census that I read that women were to be found in .every occupation ax- cept 11 and these were employments requiring physical force. "TJnlte^-Splendia!" ' "Now I hear about the Business and Professional Women's Federation in Mason City and the professional women who will come there to unite in making better times and opportunities for their fellow workers. Splendid: "Since your letter was received I have had the great pleasure of entertaining at tea your national president, Mrs. Bowman, whom I greatly admire. If you have not seen her, let me tell you that she is handsome, charming and sensible." Mrs. Catt was organizer and lecturer for the Iowa Woman Suffrage association in 1890 and since then has been in the service of the National American Woman Suffrage association for which she served as president and later was president of lie International Woman Suffrage alliance. She was a leader in the campaign to submit a, woman suffrage amendment to the federal constitution. Last year Mrs. Catt was awarded the American Hebrew medal for her service in bringing about better understanding between Jews and Christians'. She makes her home in New Rochelle, N. Y.

Social Calendar 630 Hollywood Cosmetic Secrets to Be Told to Mason City Women The women of Mason City are going to have th« opportunity of learning cosmetic secrets of the Hollywood screen stars beginning March 26. Fundamental rules of art applied in makeup are the means of adding charm to many a film favorite. And it is these rules which will be given by Miss Edith Miller at Damon's, Inc., through the co-operation of Max Factor, Hollywood's makeup genius. Hollow cheeks and high cheekbones cease to be a source of worry. Eyes can be made large and luminous. Faces with too much fullness may be changed so that they appear more oval, and thin faces more full, All through simple principles of art! In the same way the artist strives to represent nature in her true color tones, so the clever woman of today endeavors to harmonize the shades of her rouge and powder and lipstick with her own coloring. By blending here, softening a bit there, she can alter the very contour of her face. And Miss Miller is coming to show her the method.

W. Sufferers from constipation will be interested in this unsolicited letter: "Your Alt-BRAN surely relieves constipation. I am so glad over the good it has done me that I feel I must write and tell you of it. "For lunch I take a banana, a large one. Six tablespoons of ALL- BBAN in a sauce dish, and dip banana at each bite until all is consumed. I haven't been constipated now for seven weeks."--Mrs. Louise Johnson, 1433 Forest Street, Denver, Colorado. Constipation often causes headaches, loss of appetite and energy, sleeplessness. This condition is usually due to lack of "bulk" to exercise the intestines, and vitamin B to further promote regular habits. Kellogg's ALL-BRAN has both, as well as iron for the blood. The "hulk" in ALL-BRAN is much lite that in leafy vegetables. Within the body, it forms a soft mass. Gently, it clears out the wastes. Try ALL-BRAN in place of patent medicines--often harmful. Two tablespoonfuls daily will overcome most types of constipation. Chronic cases, with each meal. If not relieved this -way, see your doctor. Use as a cereal, or in cooking.
