Picture Is Coming to Cecil Theater April 14. · By E. A. N. Barnum may have said the public likes to be humbugged. If Barnum was right then "As the Earth Turns," picture coming to the Cecil theater for four .days starting Saturday, April 14, won't go over. But Warner Brothers, pioneer in producing this, the first bunkless picture; the Blank theater interests, ind Tom Arthur, manager of the Mason City theaters, are confident Barnum's proud boast, if it ever was true, no longer holds. Has No Bonk. 'As the Earth Turns" is a picture with no bunk, the first of its kind in cinema history and produced as an experiment to see how the public would receive it. It ia a faithful reproduction of that great novel of the Maine countryside written by Gladys Hasty Carroll. The book, "As the Earth Turns" is the type of story producers buy for pictures and then proceed change. Sometimes they change them so much the author doesn't recognize his handiwork. How often haven't you gone to see a pictorial production of some favorite book only to find it has been filled with hokurri? The producers' only explanation was that it had to be done to put the picture over. Cutting Out Hokum. But this time they have decided to cut out the hokum and produce the simple story of family life in Maine in the same spirit in which the book was written--with honesty and directness and with not the slightest tinge of the cheap twists^ aud turns that Hollywood describes as hokum. There is no false sentiment, no tawdry straining for effect in this picture. For years we have been waiting or the time when the moving pic- ure industry would advance to the tage when it could put art first and cheap ideas to swell gate re- eipts, second. At last, apparently he hour has come. That is why we re going out of our way to an- ounce this event and to compliment Mr. Arthur on the selection of his theater for the Iowa premiere. Are Human Being). The story concerns the every day fe of farm folks" presented with uch realism that those who see the icture do not feel he is watching ctors strutting across the stage but uman beings that live and breathe, 'hey are not characters lifted out f a book of fiction but people like ou and me who love and struggle and battle for happiness. This is the test picture to determine whether people want bunk or the real thing. We are predicting they will prefer the real thing. As stated Mason City has been hosen as the "virgin spot" of Iowa n which to give the great experiment its initial test. Mason City is o get the Iowa premiere of the pic- ure- which has only been tried in hree- places throughout the whole United States. Shown in Three Places. The world premiere was held at Jallas, Texas. Then it was put on at ^anbury, Conn., to get the slant of he eastern Main streets. Then it ·as taken to Minneapolis, the home own of the author. Mason City is next. In each of hree communities th'e picture went wer with immense success. Produc- TB and Iowa theater operators will lave their eyes turned on Mason 2ity beginning April 14 to see how ve respond to this, the greatest ef- ort toward culture in the movie :ield for years. Why was Mason City chosen as the spot for the first Iowa experiment? Harry Herman, Des Moines, representative of Warner Brothers and Ray Coffin, director of publicity ."or the Blank theaters, in the city his week in connection with the project told the reason. Best "Run of the MM." "We regard Mason City as having the best 'run of the mill' people of any community in Iowa," said Mr.Coffin. "You have all the industrial elements, the foreign born population, the business people and :he farmers. It is a town. That's why we chose it." And Mr. Coffin should know. He is a past president of the Wampas club of Los Angeles, former publicity director for Goldwyn and other producers and also idividual publicity agent for Colleen Moore, Marie Dressier and a score of other movie stars. Every effort will be made to clothe the opening of the picture here April 14 with interesting situ ations. There is every possibility that Miss Carroll, the author, v/il be here for the occasion. She was out of Minneapolis when, an effor was made to reach her last week but indications pointed to the like lihood of her being here. And tha isn't bunk either. About the Performers. Now just a word about the per formers in this picture. It is need leiss to point out that they were se lected and directed with the idea supremely in mind that this was t be a straightforward, simple am natural treatment of the story.

He received a communication from his sister, Miss Amelia Hutchins, London, inclosing the following item clipped from a March 14 issue of a London newspaper: "Bandits swooped down upon a ! bank in Mason City (Iowa) yesterday and carried off 10,400 pounds in their car, on the running boards of which they lined up several men as human shields to prevent the po- I lice firing upon" them.

Legion Membership Drive Opens With Mayor's Edict Deputy Game Warden Speaks at Armory Meeting. PROCLAMATION Whereas: April 6 marks .the seventeenth" anniversary of the declaration of war by the United States against Imperial Germany and the Central Powers and Whereas: This 'declaration brought under arms the young manhood of America in the greatest military force ever assembled under the stars and stripes, and Whereas: Out of this great mobilization of destructive force was born the American Legion, dedicated to God and country, a great constructive force in the community, state and nation, and . Whereas: Clausen-Worden post No. 101 of Mason City has been an outstanding factor in community service since its organization in 1920 and because of this unselfish activity the business, economic and social life of Mason City has benefited, and Whereas: Clausen-Worden post is inviting all eligible veterans of the World war to join its ranks in the continuation of service and mutual helpfulness. Now 'therefore, I, John J. Burns, Mayor of Mason City, do hereby proclaim and declare the week of April 6 to April 14, 1934, to be American Legion Membership Week in Mason City and urge the participation and interest of the citizens of Mason City in .this campaign. Done this 5th day of April, 1934. JOHN J. BURNS, Mayor. Clausen-Worden post of the American Legion made plans for a cleanup membership campaign and listened to a program including talk by Fred T. Schwob, deputy jame warden, and the junior drum and bugle corps at the army Thursday night. As result of the organization perfected at the meeting and announced by L. R. Whipple, post sec letary. four teams of 10 men each started a week's drive Friday, thi anniversary of the declaration of war with Germany, to clean up tbj membership. Mayor John J. Burns issued a proclamation establishing this as Legion membership week. Each team is headed by a vice commander and past post comman der as follows: First ward, Orvill George and Dr. T. A. Nettleton; sec ond, Clarence Kelroy and W. V Clausen; third, Willard Thrams an H. H. Boyce, and fourth, Frank Ma haffey and Gene Kew. Chosen Vice Commander. Mr. Mahaffey was elected pos rice commander to take the place o Frederick B. Shaffer, who resigne in order to announce his candidac; for the republican nomination fo county attorney. Frank. Maillar was elected sefgeant-at-arms, th position formerly held by Mr Mahaffey, Mr. Schwob observed that where as the fish and game commission ad as its principal function the reservation of game and fish al- eady existent, the commission un- er the new 25 year conservation Ian was primarily interested in reducing more game. 'We don't want to make less hooting and fishing for you sportsmen," he declared. "We want to make more shooting and fishing for ·ou. We believe that it" will be pos- ible to lengthen rather than reduc-3 the open seasons." The new program of conservation, he official explained, is proceeding rom definite information based on .borough and extended research. Need Food and Shelter. "It used to be reasoned that the mere planting of a few birds or fish or animals in a place where they lad previously existed would insure replenishment of the crop," said Mr. Schwob. "We know now that unless 'ood and shelter for all stages the life cycle of the fish or game are available, there can be no success." A survey of the North Iowa pheasant territory, according to Mr. Schwob, has disclosed that at the present time there is only approxi- nately one-third as- many birds as n 1929. The best judgment, he added, is that the pheasant area can support- no more than one bird to the acre. ! 'We have come to realize." he said, "that the Iowa farmer is the ley to the whole conservation pro- jram, so far as game birds and jame animals are concerned. With lis co-operation, we can accomplish our objective; without it, we are doomed to failure." Same as Human Beings, The fundamental demands of fish and game are identical with those of the human, race, it was suggested. These are shelter, food and water. "If there were three homes in Mason City," he pointed out in amplification, "there would be three families. A few might live for a time in tents nearby but eventually they would either build homes or move. Fish and game are the same way." Post members were pleased with the showing made by the junior drummers and buglers, who played several numbers. Refreshments were served by Frank Lee and a corps of caterers. Roy Johnson, post commander, presided at the meet- JOSEPH!!, 85, DIES AT HOME Succumbs Following Stroke of Paralysis; Rites to Be at Burchinal. Joseph B.
