At Mason City's THEATERS ; How many college hoys make good in the fields for which they have · prepared themselves ? Whatever tie answer may be there am three prominent young men in Hollywood whose fame rests in . fields that are far removed from the subjects they took in their respective alma maters. Norman Foster, romantic lead in "It Pays t Advertise,": which opened 1 Wednesday' at the Palace, studied journalism at Carnegie Tech. He was a reporter for a time on the Richmond, Ind., Palladium. Then he went to New York to try for a job'on a big metropolitan paper. While .there he got an opportunity to' act, became a success, and graduated to films.

The Tolstoy novel has been translated'into eleven different languages. Its popularity: has grown with passing' years. John' Boles is Prince Dmitri, handsome and stalwart, a romantic soldier; Lupe Velez plays the great dramatic role oi Katusha Maslova. Both are tremendous favorites.
