12 MASON CIT* ULOBhMiAZKTTK MACNIDER GETS SECOND HOUSE IN "CANADJl CAPITAL Ctiliinel'i .Popularity in Ot,i : tawa Growing, Says ;':- : ' Correspondent ;. /The'fpllowing-'ltem appeared. ·'--iti the April 3 c'aitlon ol the ",:;· New York Time a: ,- OTTAWA, April 2.--The TJnited State^ Minister to CanBda.dpes not spend' all hia^tirije in/grave questions · of international' concern. Fat from it Regularly he ;goes house iterating in .Ottawa. Having-no official residence provided by his government he 'is at -the mercy of circumstances ' a n d the current lease. William Phillips, the first;American Minister to Canada, bccupie'd-two or three houses during his shor.t term. Col. Hanfo'rd MacNider, who suc^ ceeded him a year ago. already is in Us second place. He has signed a he\v ; lease for a.year, thus disposing of rumors that ihe intended!to'quit the;.diplomatfc service this summer to^undertake,- as'one report here-had iti" i the.. management of- President Hoover's campaign for re-election.' The United 'states government has its plans completed for the erection this year of a handsome office structure facing the parliament buildings which wilt house the Minister and his staff and all officials of the consular,., immigration arid trade departments. But. the problem of finding living quarters is left to .the Minister, arid it is a problem involving inconvenience and embarrassment to an extent which is known to have Influenced 7 Mr. Phillips in his decision to retire. The minister must have a large house suitable for formal entertainment. There are comparatively few such residences in Ottawa. and only by rare good fortune is 6ne of them to be had furnished on lease; Colonel MacNider hag been fortunate so far, and his new lease is on a commodious .place .In fashionable Rockcliffe' Park, near the residence ot the governor general, but no doubt he will be in the market again next spring.. . ,. Colonel MacNider has achieved great personal popularity during his brief residence here. He is the moat approachable 'of men; he delights in entertainment and his hospitality is becoming famous. The other day his luncheon geusts were members of the diplomatic set and of the par- piamentary press gallery. He brings to his home eminent fellow-Americans, shows them the Canadian capital and its official life from the inside. His relations with the Canadian government are known to be perfectly harmonious, based on mutual respect and confidence. Don't let a Cold Settle in your Bowels! KEEP your bowels open during a "cold. Only a doctor .knows the importance of this. Trust a doctor 'to know best-how it can be done. That's why Syrup Pepsin is such a marvelous help during colds. It is 'the prescription of - a . family ·doctor who specialized in' bowel ^roubles. The discomfort of colds Is ..always lessened, when it is used; j-, ^out-system, is kept free from the' rihlegm,'mucus and acid wastes. -The cold 'is "broken up" easily.

BE BURTOJV CHICAGO, April' 8. UP)--''Big Bill" Thompson rang down the political curtain, for a time at least, today. ,. , The last act in 12 years of dazzling political showmanship was over but up:tb the last he played the role.' It-was^mpre, however, as an understudy .would have sketched the cowboy hat, the expansive gestures that set Out Thompson and to a nation.symbolized Chicago. There was riot much he could say but to the last he said the surprising. He volunteered hearty congratulations 'for Cermak, who, only a day before, ..he had flayed from the- platform. He announced himself ready to "stop working for 3,500,000 people arid start looking for myself." . - . - . . ; ' t - . ; Helped Change Map. "Big BUI" helped change the physical map of Chicago. Under his ad-" ministration Michigan avenue was 'extended, straight as aa arrow, across the Chicago river to the. lake. Boulevards were extended. The park system waa. created out of nothing as land sprang up where there had been water. He preached "America first" and the' "principles of George Washington." He could point to his family background as a reason, for he was the descendant of a general in the Revolutionary war. He went Into politics 31 years ago, a young man of ample means, fresh from the ranges of the west, where success rode with him. He was a go-getter arid he won a place in the city 'council. ·'-' Won .by-140,000. : He was l popular but no one thot of him as a candidate for mayor until one night during the 1914-15 holidays he rented a theater, raised the curtain and disclosed huge bundles of pledge cards--140,000 of them guaranteeing votes for him. They had laughed at him, the older political heads, but he won elec- ion by that figure Of 140,000. Until yesterday it was the greatest plur- ility of a Chicago mayor. His plat- orm planks were "drive, the crpbks but of town," and "Improve the treet car service." In 1919 they laughed at him again vhen he ran on a "freedom for Ire- and" pledge. It.brot him votes. · ' Attacked King George. He stepped .to one side then and Chicago thot "Big Bill" waa thru as .William B. Dever, a reform democrat, took off ice..Things' proved different in 1927; four years-later. He trounced white-haired Mayor Dever,' but the real news Was his attack on King George. It brot him International notice. , "Bust King George on the snoot!" was one of his rallying cries. It was based on the charge that British propaganda filled Chicago school history hooka.

DELAWARE PHONE 766 : ir- At Mason City's THEATERS Next to religion, health is the most universal topic of conversation. It concerns both old and young, embraces the latest findings of science and the age old remedies of the race, and includes' spiritual as well as physical and mental sicknesses. Therein lies the wide appeal ofc "Doctors' Wives," Fox drama of misunderstood marriage in the medical profession which is playing Wednesday and Thursday at the Palace theater,, with " Warner Baxter r.and Joan' Bennett "So-featured. '"Never have .1 portrayed a role,"' Warner Baxter declared, "with more potential appeal to audiences,; nor one from which I derived more personal satisfaction. This is due to the universality of the subject, and from the fact that 'Dr. Judson Penning' is a character strong enough in ideals and purposes to appeal to everyone." The drama of ''Doctors' Wives" is brot about when the most promising young surgeon in New York 'marries the daughter of a doctor,-a girl whom he thot would instinctively understand his desire to devote his time, ^energy and talents to the relief of suffering.. .- --o-- ' ' .- · Charlie Murray and Georgo Sidney are starred in "The Cohens and Kellys in Africa," which opened a three day engagement Wednesday at the Cecil theater. As the fifth of the series of Universal picture plays in-which Murray and Sidney with vera Gordon and Kate Price have been featured, "The Cohens and Kellys In Africa" is by far the finest entertainment and most original of- the' group, according to critics: The riotous comedy introduces Cohen and. Kelly as piano manufacturers whose business is at the point at ruin because of a shortage of real ivory for their piano keys. Meeting a pseudo-explorer who paints a glowing picture of veritable mountains of ivory in Africa, Cohen and Kelly decide to finance an expedition to the "Dark Continent" with the explorer "Windjammer Thorn" as leader. The inimitable comedians become Involved in almost every conceivable tangle on their memorable expedition including the loss of their wives. The screen play follows their escapades from the time they leave the boat at Mombasa, over tie veldt i and thru jungles until their departure from a sheik's harem for the United States; The , jungle atmosphere and harem scenes have RAYMGNB HACKHT NEIL HAMILTON ULYAN TASHMAK JEAN HUUHOLT I Thursday Only PAUL WHITEMAN And His Band In 'KING OF JAZZ' tATJKA L.A PIANTE JOEtN BOLES JEANETTE LOFF Now Playing TDANB you love romance that .is genuinely beautiful-^-and the inspiring music that made Victor Herbert's name immortal--if you like clean, wholesome comedy and, in a word--better entertainment^KISS ME AGAIN WILL GIVE YOU SOUR BIGGEST THEATRICAL ENJOYMENT ALL SCENES IN NATURAL COLORS --COME NOW.
