At Mason City's THEATERS Seldom has any role on the talking screen been more rich in emotional possibilities* than that of "Millie," in .wtiich^ Helen Twelve- trees is cast in the Radio picture of the same name, which opened Saturday at the Cecil theater. The character of "Millie", begins as a high school girl in a village taken to New Tork' as the wife of the scion of an old and wealty family there. In the village Helen Twelvetrees endows '"Millie" with a freshness and youthfulness carefully tempered with a natural sophistry with which redheaded girls seem to be naturally possessed. As the wife in New York she is first gay then stricken with grief as she discovers that her hus 1 band's love has cooled. When she obtains a divorce from him the contrast in her character is beginning to show. With excellent emotional shading, Helen^ Twelvetrees has taken the girl "Millie" on from this point thru the orgy of parties, 'love affairs' and flirtations until 'she finally reaches middle age and tragedy again strikes. her. In the last jow.scehe? the role probably gamiajs more 'sympathy .than ' a't " 'any · 'oth'er - " " ' " ' ~' ' " ' ' - '· : : ''' Infant Daughter Is Buried. : ; DUMONT, March 14.--The Rev. H. M.

A story of barking six-guns. Of, wild Camanches. Of thousands of thundering hooves. Of brave men and of one brave woman, fighting the perils of the wilderness, the elements and. the treacherous outcasts of civilization - who prey upon them.

It is a tale .of red-blooded doings in a day of empire-building that is still remem- bdred by oldsters who were there iu those hectic times.
