CHICAGO--Daisy V. Williams, who for the past 10 years has served aa secretary-treasurer of the Iowa Farm bureau federation was named Monday by the republican national committee to direct farm women's activities for the western states. Harrison E. Spangler, director of the national committee, western division, announcing Miss Williams' appointment said: "No woman understands the farm problem better than Miss Williams and we are extremely fortunate in having obtained her. She feels that the economic policy of the Roosevelt administration if allowed to continue, spells disaster for the farm family and, in her work with the national committee, she is merely continuing an Â· unselfish service of *many years to organized agriculture. "Miss Williams, in addition to serving her organization, has long been connected with public affairs, having acted as secretary of the Iowa general assembly, and participated in the organization activities of the farm bureau federation from its inception. Many of Iowa's laws most beneficial to agriculture were written with her assistance. While her headquarters will be here in Chicago, her activities will take her into all the farm states." Nationally Miss Williams is a republican and has attended three national conventions, always at her own expense and in the interest of agriculture. For like reason, she took part as a delegate to Grass Roots convention and was a member of the committee on future plans and activities. She has announced that she will attend the Cleveland, Ohio, convention. Miss Williams' father and mother reside on a farm in Hardin county, Iowa, and she makes her home with them.

SEEIIS" $S BEL1EVIIS" IN DIONNK QUINTS' FILM. It makes one wonder if he isn't dreaming to watch five little girls who look just alike scrambling around the floor as they do in "The Country Doctor," showing at the Cecil. The Dionne quintuplets have this effect much more as they grow older and learn to toddle and make one realize the wonder of the phrase reiterated in the film, "the first time five babies born at one time have lived." "The Country Doctor," with Jean Hersholt taking the adult star role, is quite a fair picture, not counting the babies. The lines are clever in several spots and quite a logical and interesting: sory has been built up around the Canadian "miracle." Mr. Hersholt is especially fine as the doctor. Of course, your decision on whether to see the show should depend mostly on whether you want to see the Dionne babies, and, even if you're a hard-boiled male who dislikes sentiment, you may be surprised at how much fun you'll have watching them. * * # With "Mardl Gras Nights," new stage show billed Wednesday and Thursday at the Cecil, the screen attraction is "Professional Soldier" starring Freddie Bartholomew and Victor McLaglen.

This bit of action, requiring less than an hour's time in real life, took up 16 hours of work before it was filmed satisfactorily. * t Â« One of the funniest of tho many funny scenes in "A Night at the Opera," now at the Strand with "Dangerous Intrigue." is the grand finals when the playful boys turn grand opera into a shambles, constantly changing the scenery and action.
