DES MOINES, (ffj--Columbia college, runnerup team in the Iowa conference, furnished two players for the all-star first team picked by the conference coaches for the Associated Press.

F i v e schools, St. Ambrose, Buena Vista, Western Union, Iowa Wesleyan and Dubuque university, placed men on the second team. John Paul, Columbia's sophomore forward, and Lawrence Kruse, a junior guard, were the Duhawks honored with first team positions. Both are rangy young men who were the outstanding performers on Father Daniel Coyne's team. - T o'm Sharpies, high-scoring Simpson forward; Bob Frost, Iowa AVesleyan center, and Art Grangaard, star of Luther's title team at the guard position, were the other players on the first quintet. One coach said Columbia would have been "just another ball club without Kruse." Sharpies, a big hard-driving forward, was the main threat of Simpson's attack, although he constantly was a marked man. Coach Hamlet Peterson of Luther said Grangaard was the backbone of his team with lots of courage and a "true leader." Frost made the first team for the second straight year.

Once-suave Afiolphe Mcnjou, who turne'd to comedy and achieved some o£ his greatest successes, taboos funny business except lor once every 18 months for fear he'll "be typed as a comedian." Although William Powell now virtually has a monopoly on the suave stuff, Menjim is threatening competition in such roles, his former specialty, because he is afraid audiences will laugh at. him at the wrong time, "The public learns to anticipate what you are going to do," .Menjou explained. "Ah unconscious move of your hand while playing a serious part may recall one of your comedy stunts. And the next thing you know the audience breaks out in laughter. , "I expect to play in other MOOSE oid-Time DANCE SATURDAY, MARCH 13 MALEK'S ACCORDION BAND Dancing 8:30 Till ,12. 25c Per Person WE WILL HAVE A BANCE ST.

Powell, Myrna Lay in In "LIBELED LADY" Robt. Youngr, Florence Rice, Ted Healy in "THE LONGEST NIGHT" comedy roles, but will definitely limit the number. I certainly have no intention of spending the remainder of my screen career enacting any one type." Menjou, who plays the part of a sympathetic motion picture producer in "A S(ar Is Born," cited the case of Zasu Pitts as an example of screen "typing." After reaching the top as a-_ comedienne, Miss Pitts essayed the serious role of a mother in "All Quiet on (he Western Front," but was laughed out of the part after making a few scenes. Menjou first gained fame as a m an-ab out-town. His salary rose to $7,000 a week. The public tired of sophistication in 1929 and Menjou, all but forgotten by the public, turned to character and dramatic parts. Later he astonished critics with mirth- provoking roles in "The Milky Way," "Sing, Baby, Sing" and "One In a Million." "I intend to devote the next year or year and a half to serious parts," declared Menjou. "A changa. of pace is a good thing, both for the actor and the movie fan." "Winterset," based on Maxwell Anderson's play of the same name, plays at the Palace beginning Saturday, together w i t h "When's Your Birthday?" a Joe E.
