At Mason City THEATERS By K. J. P. INNOVATION IN ·PAGLIACCI" FILM Many picture fans will get their first introduction to grand opera when "Pagliacci" is released soon as a short feature by Educational pictures. Henry Hull will appear as -anio, tragic clown of the famous opera- Availing themselves of an oppor- :unity afforded by the screen, the iroducers intend to place the acting n the hands of Hull and other stars of the stage while the music is to be sung by world renowned artists. Although this sort of technique is jilled as an innovation, the princi- ile often has been applied before, an outstanding example being the rather too obvious covering up of a movie star's lack of musical talent at the piano by taking the scenes from the back of the instrument while the star makes wavy motions with the arms, the actual music coming from off stage or even being recorded at some other time and synchronized with the picture later. On the same day that the above announcement was received came :he news dispatch concerning Karl Dane who was reported a suicide Saturday night. A voluminous scrap book, reminiscent of the days when he pulled down 51,500 a week in silent pictures, lay open on a table near his body. Thousands have enjoyed the antics of the Carnera- .ike native of Denmark, especially in his roles in "Circus Bookies." 'The Big Parade" and "The Duke Steps Out." His strong Danish accent barred him from talkies; El Brendel's accent is his stock in trade. * * * KAY FRANCIS IN "MANDALAY" Kay Francis is the featured player in "Mandalay" which begins a three day engagement Wednesday at the Cecil. Ricardo Cortez and Warner Oland should go far in lending this film the reality which it probably needs. Much of the praise due "As the Earth Turns" is merited by the excellent performances given by the' children in the cast « * * Walter Huston should be a "natural" in his role as an enlisted man in a cavalry unit of our, army in his new picture "Keep 'Em Rolling." Previews of the picture indicate that it will be a true-to-life portrayal. The second picture on the Wednesday through Friday bill at the Palace features Ruth' Chatterton and Adolphe Menjou in "Journal of a Crime." W. C. Fields gives one of his most amusing performances in "Six of a Kind." Funniest of all is his act with the billiard cue at a pocket billiard table. * * * WYNNE GIBSON WITH ZASU PITTS Wynne Gibson has the chief role in "Aggie Appleby, Maker of Men," which plays through Thursday at the Iowa. Zasu Pitts, Charles Farrell and William Gargan supply adequate support. The theme of the picture involves the changes Aggie makes in the lives of Farrell and Gargan, transforming the former from a baby face to a. tough guy and reversing the procedure with Gargan. · * * * "Her Sweetheart," alias "Christopher Bean," is a worthwhile production, as any picture would be with Marie Dressier, Lionel Barrymore and Helen Mack in the cast, but Marie is forced to go through some slapstick comedy which, in one or two spots, seems rather out of keeping with the general theme of the story. At the Strand through Thursday. Youth Is Hurt on Garner Farm as Team Runs Away GARNER, April 17.--Robert Tellier, 16, received cuts on the face when the team he was driving, hitched to a disc, ran away.

NEW YORK, April 17. creases in newspaper circulation and advertising over the country in the last few months tells a story of business upturn.

A general survey shows that many newspapers have an all time high in circulation and that circulation is about 10 per cent higher than at this time last year, according to S. P. Weston, newspaper analyst. Advertising Lineage. Retail advertising lineage, another business barometer, also shows gains over last year. Statistics of Media Records, Inc., reveal that newspaper advertising gained 37.6 per cent in March over the same month last year. This month-by-month comparison shows a climb in the lineage increase, going from a 9.7 per cent gain in January to a 15 per cent increase in February -- a gain more than doubled in March.
