Priced Now $8' 50 NICHOLS GREEN Dramatic Critic Asks for Share in New Deal From Far Side of Back Row* It Seemed to Be a Musical Comedy. Your favorite dramatic critic, gentle reader, is wroth--exceeding wroth. Thig matter of tucking: the representatives of the press away ill any chance corner, which happens to be vacant at a local talent entertainment must end. Age cannot wither, nor custom stale the infinite variety of miserable seats which have been allotted to the person who is supposed to give your show a good write-up, so that you or your children may have a lovely clipping to paste in your scrap-books. However this is over and a new deal is hereby and thereupon declared for critics of the drama. Gushlngi of Gratitude. In the first place all gushings of gratitude to the effect that the press and nothing else has put your show over will be received coldly, no matter how true they are. The press will demand that any play diretcor sign a contract to wit and true, too, that the critics seats be in th« fourth row on the center aisle and that other passes for the press be in seats no further back than the sixth row, center unless th«y be in the first row, balcony, center. Compliance with this ruling will take the place of all verbal expression of gratitude and spare the listener what has amounted in the past to long periods of boredom. A certain amount of physical discomfort will necessarily result from attendance at dramatic productions, since the seating arrangements in the various auditoriums are far from ideal. It is adding insult to injury to place anyone, and, especially, the person from whom you are expecting favorable comment, in row 0, seat 10, right side Local Talent Good. And now to the business of the day. The T. N. T. and Tusalata clubs of the T. W. C. A. sponsored a performance of a musical comedy, "The World's All Right," Tuesday evening in the high school auditorium. While the members of the cast bore up bravely, it was evident that the material with which they worked or the direction to which they were subjected was inferior. The setting of the play was the interor of a radio broadcasting station with Kenneth Waughtal cast as Jimmy Waddell, the announcer and owner of the station, Miss Lillian Lfeedstrom as Jane Rogers, Jimmy's secretary and sweetheart. The two made excellent foils for each other and carried through'their parts capably. Milton Dalvey took the part of Joe, the office boy, who saves the station from bankruptcy by selling a contract to Mr. Dinkle, played by J. Leonard Kline. Harry Swarner played the part of the bothersome bill collector. Ml»s Decker PIeas«s. Outstanding acts in the show were the "Lovin 1 Sam" number with Miss Dorothy Decker as Gertie Green singing "Lovin' Sam" and "Dark Town Strutters Ball" assisted by Mr. Dalvey and a chorus includng Harriet Jordan Robinson, Ramona Liesveld, Dorothy Conlin, Audrey Andrews, Mary Woolworth, Mary Clapsaddle, Maryls Taylor and Ann Jean Nugent. Equally appreciated by the audience was the Hill-Billy number done by Thomas Gregory, Don Helbling, Francis DeSart, Jack Bulmar, Paul McAuley, Harlan Girton, Fred Shaffer, F. C. Heneman, R. A. Washburn, Earl Dean, Roy Gitt, Allan Patton, Larry Reardon, Edwin Helbling, Ralph Cox and Ralph Stevens. Vocal numbers by Dr. Madelene Donnelly as the Tell-Me-A-Story Lady and by Miss Madalynne Powell, the Melody Miss, added much to the performance. Charles Dalin as Skipper Ericson nang "Ships That Never Come In," and Roger Fatten gave a one minute talk on "The World's All Right." EiMemble Numbers.

' Social Calendar Lien Pays His Respects to Ford's Peace Ship in First of Three Articles No Parading of Sobsisters Will Influence a War Mad World, "Ancient Cynic" Contends in Appeal for Adequate Preparedness EDITOR'S NOTE--This Is the first of three Installments of an article titled "Disloyal Pacifism v». Patriotic Preparedness," written by Ole O. Lien of Mason City and Marshalltown. Mr. Lien, who refers to his writings as the "reflections of an ancient cynic," Is approaching his eighty-fifth birthday. He was born in Norway and came to America, a fatherless boy, during the Civil war. Much as he decries the institution of war, he sees no course for America except to be ready for come what may. His views are Interesting, made the more so by a picturesque literary style and gift for metaphor and simile. By OLE O. LIEN. The word "pacifists" may have quite different constructions. There are pacifists whose aim and object is to advance and strengthen the cause of "peace on earth" by outlawing the. Insanity of war and revolutions; but their activity and propaganda for their misguided visions of "universal peace" is carried on In a spirit of loyalty to their country and the flag. Pacifism, propagated within the limits of loyalty and law, is commendable and deserves the sympathy and assistance of all patriotic organizations; but that is only one view of pacififltic propaganda problems. "Treasonable Propaganda." A vicious and treasonable propaganda for "peace at any price" is now apparently in the hands of communistic and anarchistic agitators, supported by tearful and "honey-sweet" aobsisters and a pharisaical conclave of black-coated propaganda preachers, taking positions, like black crows and night owls in trees and towers, treating their admiring communistic crowd of listeners, to strains of melodious music: "Bless you, my children, for your stand sublime to fight for Uncle Sam would be a crime; let honor, pride and prestige go to smash; enjoy in peace your 3.2 beer and hash!" But, Mr. Editor, it is a serious condition of affairs when a propaganda of "red" treason is permitted to be preached and broadcast to the young generation of America. It's a Sorry Pass. When it is openly advocated thai the young manhood of U. S. A should under no conditions go to war in defense of our country and her national honor, the shock should raise the hair on the craniums of our fatuous statesmen ane politicians, even though they were as bald as that of Julius Caesar. A propaganda to poison the minds of the young men and women of America with the dope of disloyalty should be ruthlessly suppressed b; the combined authorities of stati and nation. When the "long-faced' and sanctimonious pharisees, dis guised as saints and messengers ol peace in a "New Deal" for the "re adjustment of thought," by a dopei world elixir, patented for a brand new "Peace Society," then, I think t is high time for all patriotic organizations, individually and collec- Ively, to sit up and take notice. For * "Devil's Island." All agents of pernicious propaganda, advocating disloyalty aod .reason, should be "colonized" on a "devil's island" of their own where they could preach their new gospel of peace to the sharks of the sea. The next move of "pacifism" claiming our attention Is the persistent applications for American clt- zenshlp by foreign or "domestic pretenders" to that honorable distic- When questioned by the examiner regarding their standing and general qualifications as loyal citizens, whether they were willing to fight for the United States in case this nation should be at war with a for elgn power: "Oh, no-no--they could not go to war under any circumstances." They work for peace at any price, claiming exception from military service as "conscientious objectors." "Ridiculous Farce." And now we come to another phase of the persistent peace propaganda. But in this particular case it takes on the spectacular and idiotic role of the greatest, as well as the most ridiculous, farce ever staged in the world's arena. When Henry'Ford, the noted leader of the petticoat pilgrimage in 914 dumped a shipload of skirts on Europe with the avowed intention to stop the great war by the miraculous art of feminine persuasion, the statesmen and chancellories of the powers at war were taken by surprise, and the "cock-eyed" world looked up with a sardonic grin. The general world-butchery was then in full blast, and Europe shook and trembled under the crash and concussion of powerful artillery. Byron would have expressed II something like this: "Ten thousand guns were thundering destruction; "A million rifles spread their deadly pills." But the petticoat crusaders thought that their personal charm and irresistible smiles would soon Jo the business. There is something tragic-comic n this idiotic peace pilgrimage to stop the holocaust of slaughter by the sweet smiles and persuasions of the American skirt crusaders. Unable to Do More. We may imagine that the European statesmen received those American ladies with studied politeness, stating that they sympathized with them in the cause and their noble efforts, to prevent, by peaceful means, the deplorable bloodshed and destruction. But they were then quite unable to do any more, for the military authorities had taken the power in their own hands. The generals and the admirals had tak- jn the command and the diplomats could do nothing under the present conditions. If the "peace paraders" carried their great mission program to the general staffs of the British and French armies, it must have been something like this fine maneuver in petticoat diplomacy: "Now, Generals, please be good fellows; call in those noisy boys of yours up there at the front; they are so rough and reckless in playing with their dangerous toys; they are shooting so carelessly in all directions--somebody may get hurt in the ungodly racket. You, fellows, must stop this rough game, call the 'kids' to order and we will hand out a good supply of sugar-coated peace tablets, highly recommended by the best authorities as the most miraculous remedy in breaking up a war- fever." "Ignoinlnous Failure," That the American women's peace parade ended in an ignominious failure, goes without saying; but that such an idiotic expedition to meddle with European affairs, which was then none of our business, could have been planned anc carried on by sane and sensible minds is beyond common conception. But the deluded pacifists, egged on by communists and anarchists persist in their vicious propaganda against preparedness to cope with eventual emergencies, and is a con inual repetition of the sob-sister ihrase: "Mothers do not raise their boys o be soldiers." Nor For Cowardice Either. Mothers do not, as a rule raise heir boys for a military profession; ut true and loyal American mothers never raised their sons to be cowards and shirkers when the power, prestige and national honor of he republic was at stake. Where, in the sacred name of Freedom, would the great United States of America be today If the mothers had not taken, in full measure, their patriotic part with their sons in all the crucial tests of Amer- can manhood and motherly sacrifices? Mothers of Other Eras. And where would the night-owl's peace propaganda concerto and the peace at any price revival meetings of the sob-sister "sweeties" be staged today, if American mothers had not, in loyal allegiance, stood the acid tests of courage and character when their sons victoriously swung the national emblem from Lexington, Yorktown, Gettysburg, Marne, St. Mlhlel, Meuse-Argonne, and clear up to the Rhine? No sob-sister "ice cream and cake parties," and no night-owl peace music by propaganda "black-coats" can deny the patriotic sacrifices and sufferings of the mothers for relieving, as far as possible, the hardships and severe exposures of their brave sons at the front.
