VJ and For Better Appliances" LOVE BETTER THAN CAREER Widespread - comment was caused in Hollywood's movie circles when Edna Rest, noted English actress, suddenly decided to do a-walkout in the midst ot her film work. Saying ehe was lonesome for her husband, who was in New York, Miss Best deserted the cast in which she was playing and entrained for the east. She is shown above at the Itt. G. M. offices, New York, after she agreed to return to Hollywood, but this time she's taking her hubby, Herbert Marshall, with her. At Mason City's THEATERS "Cimarron" will continue at tho Cecil thru Friday. AH the characters of the Edna Ferber novel live in this massive production. Richard Dix is starred as Yaucey Cravat and opposite him is Irene Dunne. Some of the most magnificent acenery so far filmed, in beautiful photographic compositions, forms the background for "The Right of Way," which will continue thru Friday at the Palace. Conrad Nagel, Loretta Young and Fred Kohler are featured in this highly dramatic and human love story of the north woods. Pirates of history, celebrated for their hair-raising deeds, fail into the imateur class when compared to the bold sea-raider as portrayed by John Halliday, the title role of "Captain Applejack," Warner Brothers romantic comedy which is playing at the Strand theater Thursday and Friday. Captain Kidd, Blackboard, Sir Henry Morgan and other famous buccaneers of the high seas would have approved the technique, of that post-graduate of pi- rateering Captain Applejack. In :his laughing, melodramatic romance Halliday is seen both as a pirate-for-a-night and as a pam- iered English gentleman who yearns for adventure. Â·--o--Â· Hoot Gibson, who has thrilled the hearts of young and old with his daring adventures and clever comedy in his western pictures for a. lumber of years, will be seen again In hla newest drama of the west, "The Concentratin' Kid" whioh comes to the Iowa theater Friday and Saturday.

"Laura," one of the keenest, clearest studies of a woman's emotions ever written, js gloriously presented by Richard Bennett's talented eldesfdaughter. She makes very human indeed the girl of the city who seeks a way out of poverty, only to find her mistakes blocking her path when love finally comes into her heart. "Sit Tight" Is the name of the new Warner Brothers comedy featuring Winnie Lightner and Joe E. Brown but sitting is about the only thing these two do not do thruout the picture. In spite of this misnomer Miss Lightner and funny- faced Brown do the most strenuous work of their careers in this harvest of guffaws which opens Saturday at the Palace theater. Winnie is a "health" doctor and Brown is Jo-jo the Tiger, her correspondence- school-graduate wrestler, and assistant Between them they lead the patients a merry chase. "Little Caesar," the new First National picture opening Saturday at the Strand theater, gives a startling realistic impression of gangsters, from the lowest "rat," or petty thief, up to the "Big Boys," or heads of gangs. The picture shows vividly the various social strata within crookdom. The petty thieves and pickpockets are seen in cheap rooming houses in the foreign quarters of a large.city, white the big racketeers live a life of luxury, if not security, in the swankier residential sections. - Doc Eiosteln' says there is no ditching post in the universe; but there seems to be plenty of parking Cedar Falls May Have Municipal Ice Factory CEDAR FALLS, Feb. 26.

As the horse and buggy way of doing things has passed, fathers must advance so as to help the boys solve their problems of the new age. Fathers do not need more bringing up but a new bringing up. There should be a genuine comradeship of father and son. Fathers should be brot up intelligently so as to keep pace with their boy. The aim of the life of a father should be more than grinding out his life and his family not knowing him. He also stated that fathers cannot rightly expect their hoys to be the right kind of men unless they take aa interest in the higher things of life. They cannot expect boys to work in the church and stay at home and read the Sunday morning paper.
