The flying Illini, blazing away with every razzle-dazzle trick a their command, swept into a 20 to 12 lead at the end of the firs half. From.there it was a mattei of possession of the ball.

AMERKS WIN DETROIT, (UP) -- The New York Americans out-muddled Detroit's world champion Red Wings Sunday night, 3 to 1, in a National league hockey game notable chiefly, for slowness 'on both sides. A crowd of 10,800 attended. PAST HERO OF GAME IS DEAD Lady Baldwin, Mound Ace of Detroit's First Title Winners, Dies. D E T R O I T , (UP) --Charles "Lady" Baldwin, pitching ace of the Detroit baseball team in 1887 when the squad won its first world championship, died here Sunday night. He was 79. The old-time diamond hero, who quit the game after the 1887 season and entered the real estate business here, had been ill for six months. ' ' Baldwin first played professional baseball at Milwaukee in 1885, but was soon purchased by Detroit. He pitched 54 games, winning 42 for Detroit in 1886. The following season, an injured shoulder kept him off the mound until early September. He won nine out of 10 starts to. give Detroit the National league- championship and take the team into the world series against : St. Louis, old American association champions. The world series that year went 15 games. Baldwin won five of them, giving St. Louis only one run per game. He pitched the final and deciding game, winning 8 to 3. Baldwin never recovered, completely from the shoulder injury and was never effective in the big leagues after the 1887 season. He was nicknamed "Lady" because of his unassuming temperament and his refusal to touch either liquor or tobacco. Mrs. Baldwin is his only^ survivor.

Film Week--"Fail!i __ - Hope" and Faith As Verification. Monday, March 8. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for. the evidence of things not seen." Read Hebrews 11:1-3, 13-16. Of the various interpretations of faith in the New Testament, that the eleventh chapter of Hebrews is the most congenial to the modern m i n d . Faith, as conceived in this noble passage, is a process of giving actual substance to . one's I theories: it is satisfying ourselves that what we hope may be so, and what we think ought to be so, is so. If faith be thus Iconceived there DK. SPERRY can be no "warfare between science and religion," since both use the same method. Religion is the attempt to carry to its boldest conclusions a process which in the sciences is restricted to specialized fields. Thus, we fashion our idea of God, we conceive of the ideal human society, we have a vision of what we are capable of becoming. The religious life is spent in verifying our theories, in giving substance to our hopes and plans. This is a wholly reasonable procedure and science can only wisli us well on our way, so long as we do not give the lie to more restricted truths which she may rightly claim to have made good Prayer: O God, who has made us for thyself and our hearts restless until they find rest in thee, help us not to fear to venture boldly into the unknown and strengthen us with the assurance that more light is yet to break.

JAPAN IN PEACE MOVE TO CHINA Pledges Herself to Policy of "Equality" Toward Big Neighbor. TOK1O, (P)--Japan disavowed any intention of territorial. aggression in China Monday and pledged herself to a new policy built on a keystone of "equality" in dealing ith her great continental neighbor. Foreign Minister Noatake Sato launched Japan on the "new deal" for China to the cheers of a parliament stirred by his announcement, Japan,' he declared in a maiden ; speech on his policy, must abandon her superiority complex in order ever to readjust her long strained relations with China. On that principle of "a fresh start on the basis of equality," he asserted he would build the policy of Japan's foreign office which he has just taken over.. Newspapers throughout the. empire displayed Sato's speech' under scare headlines as heralding a turning point in Sino-Japanese relations. "Japan has no territorial ambitions in China," Sato stressed, labeling as "imaginary" any fear Japan intended to "go beyond the great wall and extend its influence, to central or south China." "Japan respects Chinese interests and wishes to shake hands with them economically," he declared. "That is the only way Japan can expand there." Your Federal Income Tax No. 27. Deduction for Tax on Motor Ga. If an automobile is used for both business and pleasure, all of the maintenance and operating expenses connected therewith, which constitute allowable deductions for federal income t a x purposes, should be allocated to the two uses on the basis of the time that is used for each. For example, if the total expense of operation and maintenance, plus depreciation, 'or the taxable year amounted to $800, and the car was used three- fourths of the time jfor business and the remainder of the time for pleasure, the\ allowable deduction for federal income-tax purposes would be $GOO. If a law which imposes a tax on gasoline shows that the tax is imposed on the consumer and hot on the dealer, the consumer may deduct as a tax, for federal income tax purposes, the amount of the gasoline'tax paid by him; but the taxpayer must have kept-records of the payment of such taxes in order that the deduction may be substantiated as is required by the law and the regulations. The federal gasoline tax is not deductible by the consumer. A taxpayer may ascertain whether the gasoline tax imposed by a state is deductible by the consumer or by the dealer by addressing an inquiry to the collector of internal revenue for his district. In any case where the gasoline purchased is used for business purposes the tax may be added to the cost of the gasoline and deducted as a business expense; but where that is done, the gasoline tax cannot be deducted separately under the item of taxes.

Pictures that use a current news event as their theme are often a disappointment, but "Black Legion," at the Palace through Tuesday, is one of the best films of the sort ever cutout. Based on Detroit's Black Legion expose, the play follows very closely, the actual story of Michigan's hooded band outrages. Humphrey Bogart as Frank ; Taylor,'· .(the Dayton Dean of the picture, who told oh " his logion brothers,) dominates the picture and is an admirable cho'ce for the role. Running him second for acting honors, in this reviewer's opinion, is Helen Flint in the TUESDAY "Smartest Girl in Town" with ANN SOTHERN GENE RAYMOND The Big Day--Matinee 2:30 Ends Monday "HIDEAWAY GIRL" and "THE GREAT O'MALLEY" not very appealing part of" the "bad woman." It's an interesting treatment of a big news story of our day. "Two Wise Maids," the companion feature on the double- bill, displays some excellent pieces of acting but the story fails to keep up interest all the way. " You may or may not find good entertainment in the story of a woman (Alison Sklpn'orlu) who has given her life to teaching in a New York gi-ade school, whose pupils over a quarter of a century rally to her aid when she is. threatened with disgrace and dismissal. There are some dull moments in tne picture but there are also some very funny ones,,notably a dialog in Greek-American dialect between Luis Alberni and Harry Burns. Polly Morau leads a supporting cast that contains Hope Manning, Don- aia Cook, Jackie S e a r l a n d Marcia Mae Jones, a little girl who does a remarkable bit of acting. The'.week-end program saw the successful inauguration at the Palace of its new Mirro- phonic sound equipment. « 6 # "YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE" STARK, LIVING DRAMA If you like to see your movies with happy endings, with the lovers in clinch, all set to live happily ever after, don't attend "You Only Live Once," which ends at the Cecil Monday. For this is a stark drama of two lovers hunted by the law, coming to an untimely end in one of the most depressing pictures seen here in some time. But i£ you're the type of movie fan who likes realism, as yours truly is, I'm sure you will want to see "You Only Live Once." It's not a happy story, this tale of a boy who spent five months in the death house for- a murder he did not commit. The eve set for his execution sees him make a break for freedom and,he escapes--only after he has slain the prison's priest, refusing to believe that he has been pardoned, that the real criminal has been caught. He and his young wife are hounded like two hunted animals, until the climax of this intense drama is reached in lightning-like fashion. Henry Fonda and Sylvia Sidney are great in their portrayals, although the tearful Miss Sidney is inclined to overdo her tear-jerking splendid in one of the few sympathetic roles he has ever had, so is William Gargan as the prison chaplain, and Guinn Williams as the prison guard. Story: Good. Appeal: Doubtful. "No Man of Her Own." an old picture starring Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, furnishes fairly nteresting screen material in the second feature on the program. .. With the exception of several entries naming Charlie Chaplin and Karl Dane as the Mr. ? ? ? of last week's Movie Memories, the majority of entrants correctly named Ted Hcaly. Some, however, failed to contain the necessary synopsis, thus being disqualified. Towns represented in the qut-ol-town division were Sheffield, Clear Lake, Forest City and Charles City. « if ' if ' Playing at the Lake theater at Clear Lake Tuesday only will be "Smartest Girl In Town," which features Aim Sothern and Gene Raymond in a romantic story of an advertising model. Improvements Added to Plant in Belmond BELMOND--The repair work 1 in the plant of the Belmond water works has been completed and the water now is softened. The improvement which was added to the local plant was the installation of a carbonatoi-. This carbonator will charge the water with a gas which in turn will make the water softer and purer.
