LITTLE THEATER MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 1939 Mrs. Handel Gets Praise as Director Amateurs in Good · Performance at Cecil Theater The Mason City Little Theater Scored another hit Thursday evening with its presentation of "The Late Christopher Bean" in the Cecil theater, which was well filled for the occasion. The audience, an appreciative one, found the community players' interpretation of Sidney Howard's enter- .taining situations and lines to its Hking. Directed by Mrs. Paul Handel, the play reached a high degree of finish and smoothness not always attained by amateur players. The comedy was well chosen because of its general appeal and the characters were well cast and all turned in good performances. Leads Outstanding Particular praise must go to the two leads, Miss Mary Sherman as Abby and Dr. H. K. Jones as Dr. Haggett. Miss Sherman did an exceptionally good job as the Haggett hired girl and the restraint and poise which characterized the climax of her role in the third act was excellent. Dr. Jones' interpretation of the country doctor was well thought out and executed in the Doctor's usual fine manner. The three members of Dr. Haggett's family, his wife, played by Miss Marijen Hughes, and his daughters, Ada and Susan, the Misses Adelaide Stinehart and Kay Siesseger, were very well done, their varying types being Interestingly realized by the actresses. Good Characterization Jny Thraves turned in a good performance as Mr. Hosen, the New York' art dealer, and equally good characterizations were accomplished by Haakon Hivedal as Warren Creamer, rising young 'artist in love with Susie, Dr. V. E. "Wicks as Mr. Tallent, an art forger, and Archie Dennis as Mr. Davenport, an art critic. , Important as a character in the play was the portrait of Abby around which much of the action revolved. Jean Marsh Wright painted. an oil portrait of Miss Sherman as Abby for the play and its artistry won the appreciation .of.tiie audience in the applause .which greeted it. Bags to Riches , The plot concerns the situations .which arise in a country'doctor's household when it is discovered · that a poor young artist who had spent his last days with them some 10 years before had suddenly received the postmortem admiration, so often the fate of artists. Credit for ,good makeup jobs goes to James Kelso, who was assisted by Beatrice Chamberlain and Sheila McPeak.

J. Steinberg, Miss Martha Pattie and Miss Lenore Gulbranson as speakers. During the business session which ' preceded the program, Miss Elizabeth Graves, president, innounced her nominating committee to include Miss Mabel Sucher, Miss Priseilla Swan and Miss Florence Sandberg. Encourage Thrift Miss Gulbranson introduced the subject of savings and presented the f i r s t speaker, Mr. Stinson, who discussed the Federal Savings and Loan association which, he pointed out, is operated on a charter granted by the Federal Home Loan bank and according to a set of regulations. The regulations are designed to encourage thrift and home ownership, so -for instance, t h e association .is not allowed to finance speculative real estate projects. Wot only the charter, but monthly reports and inspections are provided so that the association lives, up to the purpose for which it was organized. Mr. Stinson pointed out that the associa- lion carries two types of accounts, javings and investments, and explained each type. In the latter type,- certificates are issued and dividends paid at the end of six nonth periods. Any amount may ")e invested in the savings ac- :ounts. Passbooks are issued and dividends are credited to the accounts. Amounts can be withdrawn at any time. Keep Money Here Mr. Steinberg discussed gov- jrnment savings explaining the ounding of the postal savings in 911 to keep the money of foreigners in the communities in which hey had settled. Because the mmigrants were not familiar with banks, they remitted their sav- ngs to Europe. With the postal system, they were encouraged to keep their savings in their local communities and the money was redeposited in local qualified banks. "Certificates of account may be ssued to any individual 10 years or over, but not to two persons, an organization or a society," Mr. Steinberg said. "Accounts are limited to $2,500 and the annual interest is 2 per cent. The certificate is payable on demand. Postal savings are personal property and as such not exempt from state income tax. For Small Investor '"Baby bonds may be purchased in first, second or third class post- offices, the Federal Reserve bank or from the U. S. treasury. They were developed to make possible the purchase of government bonds for the small investor. Bonds may be held by any person or concern. The limit is $10,000 maturity value in any series. No interest is paid, but the bonds are bought at discount. U. S. savings bonds are the ideal investment for parents who wish to send their youngsters to school." Miss Martha Pattie talked on life insurance which she said was established 96 years ago in this country with the first policies of a purely protective nature. Miss Pattie discussed the various types of insurance: Straight life, limited payment life policy and the new types o£ income policy, retirement policy and annuity which she said had grown up to meet public demand. Single Payment Annuities provide for ihe payment o£ sums of money at certain periods during a lifetime. Like straight life, the annuity is usually bought by a single payment. Miss Pattie said in concluding that insurance provides as great security to its holder as government savings. Miss Gulbranson spoke on the part of the bank in savings. She said that all accounts in a bank are insured up to and including 55,000. There are state and national banks, and to a member of the Federal Reserve bank, the organization must have a certain capital, she explained. "Anyone can have a savings account," Miss Gulbranson said. These accounts are payable on demand. Many persons accumulate funds in a savings account for further investment. In the Christmas savings, 75 per cent are probably used for purposes other than Christmas shopping." JUNIOR C. D. A. TEAM TO MEET Junior C. D.
