"Sit Tight" is a Warner Brothers spe cial, with a score of laughs to the second and several of the best new songs of the season. Tho charming cinema blond, Constance Bennett, fresh from her triumphs in "Common Clay," "Sin ,Takes a Holiday" and "Three Faces East," is starred in "The Easiest Way" which will play at the Ceci four days commencing Saturday Adolphe Menjou, Robert Montgom ery, Anita Page, Marjorie Rambeau and Clark Gable are also featured "The Easiest Way" is a talking pic ture version of the sensational Eugene Walter stage play. Constance Bennett does highly effective worfo as "Laura," heroine of the drama while the deft Adolphe Menjou ant clever young Robert Montgomerj are splendid in the two male -roles Marjorie Rambeau has a role similar to that of her "Bella" in "Min and Bill," while Anita Page is more than adequate as "Peg," Laura's sister. Clarke Gable of the stage success, "The Last Mile," makes his talkie debut in this picture. "The Easiest Way" is famous for its searching study of a woman's mistakes, and a woman's heart. Edward G. Robinson, whost name, despite his resolution to lose himself in a great variety of different kinds of roles, has become a synonymn for stage and screen gangster, isn't a bit gangster as in real life. He is small, lively, genial and decidedly foreign-looking. Besides that, he is a very fine artist. His value for many afid divers roles shown by such widely different stage parta as "The Kibitzer, "The Man With Red Hair" and the gangster in "The Rocket," is a wonderful testimonial to his versatility. His latest gangster role is the title part in First National's "Little Caesar," coming Saturday-to the Strand theater. In this thrilling film version of the W. R. Burnett novel,--he has a role ·so filled with the colorful little character touches !ie loves to put in, that the actor himself declares It to be one of his supreme favorites.

'The Concentratin' Kid" is a typical western picture, with the innovation of some modern ide_as. Kath- ·ya Crawford is the girl who set? ;he cowboy heart of Gibson's to throbbing, and the villainies ' are planned by the outlaw team, Duke rl. Lee and James Mason. That makes plenty of dramatic action for 'The Concentratin' Kid," Hoot Gibson' s«role. "The Right of Way" is to be presented for the last time Friday evening at the Palace theater. --o-- The Cecil is going to show "Cimarron" for the last time Friday night.

Charles City News FLOYD SHIPPERS HEAR O'DONNELL Directors Elected; Means to Get Best Pork Prices Are Pointed Out. CHARLES CITY, Feb. 27.--A meeting- to complete the temporary organization of a Floyd County Livestock Marketing association was held Thursday afternoon at'the Ellis auditorium where about 150 farmers listened to R. F. O'Donnell, Colo, of the state association. Directors elected were Harold E. Win- :erink, Charles City; Dayton Mather, Greene; C. M. Ccrwinske, Rock- 'ord; W. D. Tamset, Greene; Fred Frese, Nora Springs; Andrew Jandl, Marble Rock; N. E.' Bent, Nashua; John Howell, Niles; Allen Andre, Floyd. Ifr. O'Donnell appealed to the business sense of the audience by stating that the shipping assoeia- ions in eastern Iowa in the past our months pnid an average price f 16 cents a hundred more for pork lian could have been procured on the Chicago market at top prices for the same pork and also that the same hogs would have brot less than the top; that top values can only be procured by gathering enough stock to grade- it In a way to make it attractive to bidders, which could not be done in individual sales. He gave as the cost of shipping thru the association a 10 cent charge for local expense of office, including Insurance, and a five cent selling cost when sold direct to packers or the regular terminal charge when sold in a terminal market. He hit at the practice of "filling" pork just before weighing and stated that the o.nly person kidded was the shipper who followed such practice as shippers are required to guarantee a certain percentage of dressed weight 'and the packers are quick to discover a shipper who "fills'; his pork and to avoid that' kind of shipper. Figures given by the speaker indicated the late trend is for more and more pork~to be sold direct to packers and less to terminal markets and that 61 per cent went direct last year as against 51 per cent year before last. To show the progress of shipping associations in- eastern Iowa Mr O'Donnell said 41 decks of hogs were shipped by them in September and more than 400 in January. Buchanan county's shipping- association was composed of 1,100 members. R. M. Hall, manager of the North Iowa Marketing association, Mason City, also addressed the audience. At the business meeting after the main address it was voted to delay shipping operations from n central concentration point until the membership reached 1,000 in number, of which about 300 are already promised.
