(Lock photo, Kayenay engraving) ., Collection of Greases Saturday ' Mason City Girl Scouts and Cubs will again make the rounds of residences in the community Saturday, collecting salvage fats. This, it was pointed out, is one sf the most convenient methods o£ turning your waste kitchen fats over to the proper channels for the manufacturing of essential war materials. The grease should be in a tin or ice cream container and not in FJCT50, glass. Glass causes all sorts of dif ficulties in the processing program. Those who prefer to turn over their salvage fats to the meat dealers for 4 cents a pound and red points may do that. The important thing is to get it to the place where it can be used to win this war, Mrs. H. D. Makeover, county chairman of the women's salvage program, stated. . - J.L, FITZSIMMONS RITES SATURDAY Services to Be Held at 10:30 O'Clock Funeral services for Janies Lewis Fitzsiramons, 68, who died at his home, 641 S.

CECIL THEATER JAN. 18-24 -- V a n Johnson and Phyllis Thaxter are shown above as Lt. (now major) and Ellen Lawson in the film, "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," which is to have its North Iowa premiere at the Cecil theater the week of Jan. 18 through Jan. 24. Austin McGough, Des Moines, representing Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, was in the city Thursday completing arrangements with Manager Tom Arthur for the showing of this * ilm, rated as one of M-G-M's reatest productions. The picture is based on Maj. Lav/son's popular book and the najor, himself, was present dur- ' ng the making of the picture as aart of Metro - Goldwyn - Mayer's effort to make the production en- irely authentic. The film, however, is not. a .ypical war picture. Not a gun shot is heard. It combines the story of one of the greatest air in history with the truly icart warming romance of Ted and Ellen Lawson. It is this love story that dominates the film, against thrilling scenes of bombers getting off from the deck o£ an aircraft carrier and swooping down as they approach their target. Spencer Tracy plays the role of Lt. Col. (now lieutenant general) James H. Dpolittle, who led the famous mission. There is Robert Walker of "Hargrove" fame as · Cpl. (now staff sergeant) Thatcher and other prominent stars. The acting of Phyllis Thaxter, a brilliant newcomer to the screen, has received plaudits from critics everywhere for her performance as she depicts the role of one of the women who wait for their men to return from the most daring adventures of all time.

Anyone interested is invited to attend, said Capt. Whipple. Newspaper advertisements for marine recruits were published in 3866.
