They were One of the features of the "WLS Meny-Go-Round," special stage show playing Tuesday only at the Palace theater is the Hoosier Hot Shots, a group of laugh creating comedians and comedy singers seldom equalled. As their name implies, the Hoosier Hot Shots are from the Hoosier state (Indiana) from which has come so many big names of the air'and stage. With an odd collection of comedy musical instruments and the grotesque characterizations presented by this clever group, the offering is just one fun riot Few features, such as the Hoosier Hot Shots have been able to register comedy both on the lir and stage so effectively.. Their Broadcasts have been for a long Jme one of the comedy highlights of the air, and in their personal appearance their fans will be able to see just how this comedy is so ef- "ectively performed.

You have learned how you became Christians and how you may remain God's children. Now it Is your duty to walk according to iour Lord's will. Your motto must be, Heavenward. "You never will have a continuing city in this world, therefore you phould seek one. In seeking this'fu- ture, continuing city, you must not r.Ilow unbelief and pride to enter your life, nor must you ever have the wrong longing for enjoyment. ~ ' church, your 'Matter" was the subject of the / iesson-sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist, Sunday. The Golden Text was from Exodus 20:7, "Thou shall not take the jmme of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in v'ain." ·· The lesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science text book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. -. One of the Bible citations read: "And a woman having an issue of Wood twelve years, which had spent nil her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of an}', came behind Him, and touched the border of His garment; and immediately her issue of blood stanched.

Miss Powell sang the soprano solos, displaying her ability and quality of voice in the solo "These Are They Which Came." Edwin Helbling, baritone soloist, was at his best in this oratorio, singing a number of solos. The oratorio advanced step by step, increasing in its motif and effect, until it reached the final chorus, "Great and Marvelous Are Thy Works," sung by the quartet and chorus. Mrs. R. E. Patton, organist, played with great precision the intricate numbers. The quality of the production showed careful directing of Miss Ellen Smith. V. Anderson Hearing Is Set for April 2 The hearing for Victor Anderson former manager of the Rockwell co-operative creamery, who was arrested on a charge of embezzlement was continued until April 2 by Justice of Peace M.

"All that I have, all that I am I owe to the two orders that operate this home." This was the admission, offered m impressive gratitude, of Robert W. Colflesh, past state commander of the American Legion and at present a republican candidate for governor, in a talk before residents of the Odd Fellows home Monday forenoon. . . . . ' "They call this an orphans' home," he added. "I'm not sure that is exactly the right term. As a matter of fact there is no such thing as an Odd Fellow or a Rebekah orphan in Iowa. These two orders constitute both father and mother to the unfortunate." Draws on His Memory. Most of his talk was in the reminiscent mood. The speaker recalled the day in August, 1907, when as a lad of 7, he came up through a field of buckwheat to the children's home. To the right, in front of what is now the old people's home was an orchard. Now all this is a spacious lawn. The children's building had burned and been reconstructed'about a year before his entry to the home, he recalled. Mrs. Grace Lewis, loved by all who contacted her, was the matron and superintendent. · During the course of his talk, Mr. Colflesh hailed and referred to several of the present residents of the home who were there in his day. As he looked out the window of the auditorium he sighted the present orchard arid-recalled thathe'had assisted with the planting of the trees. During the construction of the old people's home he had served as water boy. Admit* He Was No AngeL "Mr. Stubbs has found in going- back through his records," the speaker chuckled, "that my conduct wasn't always exemplary. He found, for instance, that I had no more love for school attendance than the other boys and girls. "In that connection I recall the most effective means of dodging school. In the winter I ran a string of traps and quite frequently I would catch a skunk. I discovered that if I was careless enough in handling the litle animal, the idea of absenting myself from school suggested itself to tile teachers. Thus I-obtained both the money for the hides and a much appreciated recess from school duties." Mr. Colflesh alluded to a number of his contemporaries in the home who have made good in the professions or in the business world. One.friend, serving with the marines, he contacted quite by chance on the eve of the battle of Belleau Wood, where he lay 14 hours in a shell hole, following an injury which left him with one leg.

NOTTOQOESTION LIQUOR BUYERS Clerkf at State Stores to Look Up Permit! to See They Are in Order. DBS MOINES, March 26. UP)-Permit clerks will not subject customers of state liquor stores to "censorship" or questioning, Chairman Harold Cooper of the state liquor control commission, ex plained today. "That impression seems to have been received," Cooper said, "that every citizen who walks into a liquor store to make a purchase will be subjected to 'third degree' questioning-. "Nothing could be further from the truth. Plan No Questions. "Permit holders will not be questioned in any way. Their permits will be checked, to make sure they are valid, but otherwise .they will make a purchase in the liquor stores with no more red tape than is attached to the purchass of a suit of clothing or an order of groceries in a 'private store. "The commission at first designated the permit clerks as 'censors.' That title should not have been used, however, because it left i false impression and hereafter these employes will be knowu as permit clerks.' Look Up Permit. "The duty of the permit clerk ELEVEN will be to check the purchaser's, permit, to make sure that it has not been revoked by the courts oj by the commission or is not otherwise in question, it will not be within his province to suggest how much the purchaser may buy or to question reasonable purchases if the permit is valid. In fact he is specifically forbidden to question the customer. "If the permit clerk aees anything irregular about the permit, it will be his duty to call it to the attention of the store manager. "If, for instance, the permit shows that the purchaser has bought large quantities of liquor a short intervals then it is pretty obvious that the liquor was not for private consumption and the matter will be called to the attention of the store manager. Check Is Needed. "It is necessary to nave this check on abnormally large purchases to prevent illicit vending. It also is necessary to check the validity of permits to* prevent buyers from using revoked permits. . "But the permit holder has nothing to feur from this checking. He may make whatever purchases he- wishes. Only if he should make such purchases at unreasonably short intervals would the matter be looked into. And, if investigated, it would aot be investigated by the permit clerk. He merely would call it to the attention of proper persons."
