Heilmann hit .403 that year. * * * PRAISE AND BLAME I HAVE nothing but praise for the manner in which American Le- »io n boxing has been conducted in Mason City through the latter part of the present season . . . except on one item. I think it would be to the best interest of the local post to stop use of high school performers in ring cards. » * * THE DEVELOPMENT of local boxing talent is a fine goal . . . it's the thing that will make for better boxing in Mason City. But there are two things wrong with the participation of high school athletes . . . they're too young to be tossed into a ring, perhaps against an older, tougher boy who has had some formal training as a boxer . . · and their appearances might cause them to be barred from other high school sports. I know that several officers of the local post view the use of high school boys as an invasion of prior rights . . . and trust that it won't happen again. * * * Odds and Ends .. . ALTHOUGH I did know that Kenneth "Moco" Mercer, Algona high school coach, was a gridiron star at Simpson college in 1924 . . . and that he played professional football afterward . . . I'd never heard this one until recently: Mercer played in Philadelphia and New York, and did a darn good job of it. He received 51,250 for one day's appearance in Philadelphia. A Quaker City sports fan had a standing 51,000 offer to any player who could kick a goal and break the face of a big clock that hung back on the stadium fence . . . Mercer banged the glass out one day, and his regular salary of JZSO was boosted considerably. WRESTLING Br THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLUMBUS, Ohio--Dick shlkal, 230. Germany, defeated Alan Eustace, 218.

One thing they all agree on Ever been in Singapore?... Constantinople?... Buenos Aires?...Well, Budweiser has. No matter where people have gone, they have been unable to find a beer like Budweiser with its matchless character, bouquet and flavor. People who know beer have made Budweiser the biggest-selling bottled beer in history. For your own enjoyment, include in your circle of friends the beer that has circled the globe! How old is beer? As old as civilization. "Zythum", ancient Egyptian word for "beer", is one of the last words in the dictionary... but everybody who drinks Budweiser knows that Budweiser is the last word in beer. Order a carton for yeur h e m e - N O D E P O S I T REQUIRED-Be prepared to entertain your guests. A N H E U S E R - B U S C H S T . L O U I S The Mayflower brought Pilgrims--and beer!

Alaskan Ferry Noted in Gold Rush for Sale JUNEAU, Alaska, (UP)--After 48 years of consecutive service without a mishap, during which time its boats traveled 1,123,000 times across Gastineau Channel 'between Douglas and Juneau, the Juneau Ferry and Navigation company has gone out of existence. Abolition of the ferry service was due to recent completion of the ?250,000 bridge across the channel. The ferry company's last boat, the Teddy, will be sold. Many tales of the early Alaskan days were recalled with the passing of the ferry, such as in the season of 1887, when Ceptain John Martin, who launched the company, went about the saloons of Juneau blowing a fish horn when the ferry was ready to leave. During the gold rush, thousands of miners used the ferry, often pulling out their "pokes" on deck to engage in games of blackjack at $10 a chip.

CECIL COMBINATION BILL IS ONE OF BEST THIS SEASON "Hollywood Holiday" and "Prisoner of Shark Island," stage and screen attraction, respectively, which was to end a two day engagement Thursday evening at the Cecil, provided one of the best combined theater programs which have played here this season. While the vaudeville la not the best in the world, the picture is a forceful melodrama takep from one of the more tragic incidents in American history, the exile of Dr. Samuel Mudd to Fort Jefferson on the Dry Tortugas southwest of the southern tip of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. Outstanding among the cast, in addition to Warner Baxter who has the title role, are beautiful Gloria Stuat, cast as Dr. Mudd's wife; tiny Joyce Kay, as cute a little girl as has appeared on the screen in. some time; and Ernest Whitman, huge Negro who stars as one of Dr. Mudd's retainers. This is a great picture, full of tense moments--a show which you are bound to enjoy and which may teach you a thing or two about Lincoln's assassination which you didn't know before. - Sugar Kane and Don Stone, smooth working dance team, were the hit of the vaudeville, exhibiting some of the fastest tapping and cleverest routines ever shown oil the Cecil stage. Spud Seal, stocky comedian, also drew a good share of applause. Johnnie Dunn, master of ceremonies and alleged stage and screen star, added little to the show, unless one counts the well directed extemporaneous heckling which he drew from some lads in tjie balcony. Mr. Dunn proved one thing, however--· he can play a xikelele. * . * * "LAUGHING IRISH EYES" IS STRAIGHT FROM "AULD SOD" j "Laughing Irish Byes" is a fast moving comedy, enhanced with a generous sprinkling of heart-stirring Irish songs by Phil Regan, nationally known radio singer. Thia film will play at the Cecil and Palace Friday only. Crackling Irish wit is put over with a bang by such comedians as Walter C. Kelly, J. M. Kerrigan, Warren Hymer, Ray Walker and Herman Bing. Evelyn Knapp, spirited Irish lass, and Mary Gordon, beloved Irish screen "mother," provide the reasons for all the fighting and singing that takes place. * # * The story of "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine" takes place in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, but the actual photographing of the picture took place at Big Bear lake in the high Sirras of California. Sylvia Sidney. Henry Fonda, Fred Story Changed; Results Same. TOLEDO, (UP)--In a modernization of an old story. Clement Fishback examined his carburetor with a cigaret lighter. He is recovering.
