"ONE IN A MILLION" AS GOOD AS ITS BALLYHOO Rarely docs a film prove every bit as good as its press agents say it is, but "One In a Million," which opened at the Cecil Saturday, is worthy of all the adjectives its press agents bestowed upon this picture which marks' the debut (and a very successful one) of Sonja Heriie, Olympic figure-skating champion. The question of where (o begin relating the virtues ot "One In a Million" is a difficult one for an all-star cast helps make this film one ot the rarities ot the screen which have no dull moments. It's an entertaining concoction o£ romance, music and comedy--a combination which spells a surefire hit for the moguls who conceived this idea of bringing Miss Henie to the films. Just as in the Olympics which she won twice, Miss Henie skates to an Olympic victory in "One In a Million." Hers is a sweet de- Melody From the Sky," from "Trail of the Lonesome Pine;" "Pennies' From -Heaven," from "Pennies -From Heaven;" "The Way You .

A conservative justice o£ our supreme court, found duck hunting without a federal stamp, had never heard of the law. He knew it was all right to shoot blue eagles. -- Richmond Times-Dispatch.

MOVIE MENU CECIL--"One In a Million" through Wednesday. PALACE--"The Jungrle Princess" and "More Than a Secretary" through Wednesday. STATE--"These Three" and "Mummy's Boys" t h r o u g h Tuesday. STRAND--"The Bier Broadcast of 1937" and "Women Are Trouble" through Tuesday. LAKE--(Clear Lake)--"Love On the Run" ends Monday. maybe you were thinking of a Movie Memories of a few months ago, or maybe your letter was sent to the wrong address. Mrs. E. N. M.: We accept your statement as a challenge, so beware of the next few contests. Mrs. C. K.: Your winning entry did not have your address on it. Entries rolled in from Clear Lake, Nora Springs, Osage, Kiceville, Dougherty and Rockwell, as well as from numerous Mason City contestants. 4 6 £ "MORE THAN A SECRETARY", VERY PLEASING FEATURE "More Than a Secretary," at the Palace through Monday, is one of the b'est in a long time; The lines, the situations and the acting combine to make an excellent comedy. Jean Arthur (who is getting bel- ter and better) and George Brent are in the leads, with Lionel Slander, Ruth Donnelly, Reginald Denny and Dorothea Kent backing them up. .Jean is a girl who turns from running a secretarial school to a job as a secretary to keep from becoming an old maid. There isn't much pint to describe but the cleverness of the acting and the lines take care of everything. "The Jungle Princess," the companion picture of the double feature bill, isn't in the same class. Dorothy Lamour, making her screen debut, might do very well with something more to work with. Lynne Overman and "Jiffgs," the chimpanzee, do most to help a weak play out. * * * The roadshow performance of "Romeo and Juliet," Shakespeare's romance in which Les- He Howard and Norma Shearer are starred, will play Thursday only at the Cecil theater. The matinee will be at 3:45 and the evening performance will begin at 8:30. Management of Hie Ce- meanor, an engaging personality and an intriguing Scandinavian accent. The accent, however, is no Simone Simon-ish talk--you can understand Miss Henie, very clearly. Space does not permit a thorough review of this picture, in which the Ritz brothers pull ofi some of their typical nonsensical but mirth-provoking bits; Borrah Minncvitch and his gang give a very amusing and entertaining number; Adolplie Mciijou enacts the role of a theatrical impresaricji his wife is Arline .Judge; Miss Hchie's father Is enacted by Jean Hcrsholt; a newspaperman Don Ameche provides the love interest and is constantly shadowed by his photographer, frozen-faced Ned Sparks; Leah Ray and Dixie Dunbar complete this most satisfactory cast. MOVIE MEMORIES Once again the majority of entrants won the Movie Mem.- ories contest, correctly naming Marie Prevost, but this time, many tripped in the synopsis. Often her age was not given correctly (she died at the age of 44), and some failed to write the necessary 50 words. A few entries thought it was Edna Purviance, and one entry, \V. W. by initials, said "Charles . Spencer Chaplin." Just what line of reasoning you followed is beyond yours truly, W.

Icy pavements were believed to have caused the car driven by Ed Murphy of Rockwell to skid into an eastbound Milwaukee freight train at the crossing just cast of Clear Lake at about 12:40 Sunday morning as Murphy and three companions were returning from a dance at the Surf ballroom. The driver and his companion, Marian Nehls, 115 Seventh street southwest, were injured. Cecil McMonagle and Margaret Treston of Rockwell, other occupants of the automobile, were shaken up. According to McMonagle, Murphy saw the approaching train nncl attempted to whirl tlie car into the ditch to avoid a collision, but Hie icy highways forced the car to skid sidewise i n t o the freight train. The 1934 Plymouth coupe was almost demolished. Miss Nehls and Murphy were taken to" the Mercy hospital at Mason City and were given treatment for their injuries.
