TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 24 1934 AlineO'pipe Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will By T. PIPE Re-Creatlon. By Pauline of Hampton. In the grate the fire Crackles and flares at me Like some »ngry monster · Ages gone. Could the soul Of that monster be li» the tree? stealers, and a double dose of Don itcPeak now and then, thij world vould be a better place l;i wliio!) i · ive. Hoping your missus is back and meal time is more nourishing and welcome, I am --Del Witt P 1 Tp E And speaking of Don McPeak, his column last week was a lit-, tie the best thing; that has appeared In this newspaper for some time. Don rather outdid . himself for once. But then he usually does. According to a Des Moines Sun' day paper, the late unlamented state legislature did us plenty in the way of added taxes and it spent over $300,000 in doing so. Which · isn't so bad for a legislature, the members of which were elected on an economy and a tax reduction pro. gram. P l i p E Nor will It be long until the same members of the above mentioned state legislature wiU be working lor re-election and explaining In a plausible sound: tag way. Just why they socked us in the kneck in about every possible way. Politics Is quite a game. ' T P I P E Which reminds ua that we must drop in and see Mr. Knutson some · day and meet him face to face. He · has the moat plausible program on · taxes and taxation that we know of. . How about it, Clarence, are you "at '. home" these days? L P t I P E They Treat Calves Well to loway. ; SWAP--Hard coal hrooder stove for i voune calves. --Swapad. At that, the livestock of our broad and well known land are treated batter than are many persons. Most stock is sheltered and well led and cared lor :' which is more than can bt said · ol several millions persons Just at present. P iTp E . The Better The Beer, The Better The Bath. i T Pipe: Sign on Eureka hotel, "Keg Beer Shower Baths." CoulU ·" this be called a better use for bet: ter beers? Hoping you are the ; same - _o.c. ! · P l l P E . WHEN BETTER BEERS , · ARE BATHED IN THEN, : PERHAPS GOOD TIMES, , WILL COME AGAIN. P I Tp E And still the crop of hardy, early blooming candidates continues to ·.bloom and flourish in spite of the ,-.late spring and adverse weather [^conditions. Like the dandelion and 'i the English sparrow, their number is legion and their hardiness un- ; equalled. . P 1 1 P E When it comes to friendliness and the art ol being , agreeable, tew can compure , with the automobile salesman. No matter how tough the going or how discouraging the results obtained, he keeps smiling and " plugging away, hoping lor, and usually getting, a better break ! some day. He takes conditions as he finds them and tries to hew a living from an often times unresponsive and ungympathe- . tic public. T . P E All of which leads us to say that Leo Finnegan, tali, handsome, ac- · complished, and ever smiling salesman of the justly famous Dodge au- · tomobile, took us for a ride and let : us drive a new Dodge six. As a re.- suit of which most pleasant experi- ·ence, we-have decided there is no -dodging the fact that the new ·'Dodge is a good car and that Leo is · an expert salesman, a gentleman, · and an honor to his profession. T P I J-P E 'The auto salesman sallies lorth, 'Each morn to greet another day. And if he sells a car or two, .' His heart Is full of joy and gay. P I 1 P E All About Quetzalcoati, And Why. . T. Pipe: I thought you might be interested in the following news item taken from the columns of Mason City's best advertising medium: Quetzalcoati was the Aztec god and culture hero who is the equivalent of the Mayan Kuy- ulcan and the Quiche Gugu- matz. P I A P E We are glad to have this information. In fact we feel refreshed and elevated by the literary and historical value of said choice bit. Not ..only that Quetzalcoati was the Aztec god but that he was the equivalent of Mayan Kuyulcan and the Quiche Gugumatz. So what? Maybe if we had more Quetzalcoati and · less long legislative sessions, more Quiche Gugubatz and less bank At Mason City THEATERS RUDY VALLEE STILL LEADS THE WAY IN RADIO Despite having been a target for a few grapefruit here and there Jirough the country and the butt "or numerous alleged jokes, Rudy Vallee, the original crooner remains one of the biggest drawing cards on radio or stage. He has a leading role in George White's "Scandals" which began a four day engagement Saturday at the Cecil. * * * It will be Interesting to discover f Buster Crabbe, starred in "Search for Beauty," has progressed any farther in his stage training than he had when he thrilled small children as "Tarzan" by flexing his muscles and grunting a bit- John Boles and Gloria Stuart should provide good musical entertainment in "Beloved." These two pictures comprise the double bill which started a four day run Saturday at the Palace theater. * * * "Take a Chance," snappy, clever comedy with good musical numbers featured by Cliff Edwards and his ukelele singing "I'm a Night Owl'' and rolling his eyes till you don't doubt it, plays Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Strand. » * * LIONEL BARRYMORE IN ONE MAN'S JOURNEY" In the role of a country doctor Lionel Barrymore is at his best in "One Man's Journey" which is the Iowa feature Sunday and Monday May Robson, Frances Dee and Joel McCrea provide ample support. * * * "This Side of Heaven," John Barrymore's latest vehicle, is the midweek attraction at the Cecil, anc should be well worth one's time anc money. A fine story which must be well acted with Fay Bainter, Mac Clark and Una Merkel in support of Barrymore, this should be interesting entertainment from any standpoint. * » * WLS RADIO STARS BILLED AT PALACE.- The management of the Palace theater has. announced . that the "Merry-Go-Round" program from radio station WLS will be presented Tuesday, March 27, both afternoon and evening on the Palace stage featuring personal appearances o: the radio artists who broadcast from that station. On the same program Jimmy Cagmey, the movie dude, will appear in his new picture "Jimmy the Gent," with Bette Davis, Alice White and Allen Jenkins in supporting roles. * * * A good double feature prograir begins a three day engagemen Tuesday at the Iowa when William Powell in one of his best roles a the detective in S. S. Van Dine's story, ''The Kennel Murder Case' shares the spotlight with Norman Foster and Ginger Rogers in "Rafter Romance." * # * Wednesday and Thursday at the Strand theater a rather amazing comedy, "Three Cornered Moon,' is on the same bill with the severa reels of local scenes and people which was shown at the Cecil thi last few days. Davison B. Mason, 79, Dies at 1.0. 0. F. Home Davison B. Mason, 79, died of heart disease at the I. O. O. F. home shortly after 10:30 o'clock Saturday morning. Death was very sudden Mr. Mason showing no signs of illness up to the time of his death. Mr. Mason came to the home Oct 26, 1927, from Keota, as a widower He was born at Keota April 18 1854.
