LENOX TIME TABLE. LENOX. IOWA ****************** I STAR I I DUST | 7 * jMLovie • Radio J ***By VIRGINIA VALE*** T HE motion picture business got a gentle jolt recently, when it was announced by a man who knows that the stars preferred by people who buy tickets to the movies are not the stars credited by Hollywood and the motion picture critics as being the best on the screen. The announcement was made by A. H. Blank, who has been in the business for 24 years, and Is the Iiead of two organizations which operate 75 theaters in 35 cities, selling some 20,000,000 tickets a year. He says that the most popular stars this last year have been Will Rogers, Shirley Temple, Clark Gable, Mae West, Norrna S h ea r e r, Bing Crosby, Claudette Gable. Colbert, M y r n a Loy, Joan Crawford and the team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The stars the critics rave over are Charles Laughton, Claudette Colbert, George Arllss, Clark Gable, Leslie Howard, Norma Shearer,'Greta Garbo, Will Rogers, Shirley Temple and Helen Hayes. They include Shirley, you see, but put her ninth on the list. —*— So—jet's take the list of the best ten, and check up on current news about them. Will Rogers' pictures are still drawing crowds, a most unusual thing when the star Is no longer living. Shirley Temple had a lovely Christmas, with James Dunn acting as Santa Claus in an airplane and dropping presents for her on the lawn. She's taking a month's vacation, and planning to spend it In Hollywood. Clark Gable, since the split with his wife, is living nt a hotel, and having some difficulty because he has his dogs staying with him. He will probably make a sequel to "Mutiny on the Bounty," showing what happened to him and his men after they settled on Pitcairn island. Mae West wants to return to New York and do a stage play. Norma Shearer, making.. "Romeo and Juliet," has for some time worn her hair a la "Juliet," In preparation for the picture. Bing Crosby is more excited than ever over his racing stable, now that the Santa Anita track is open. Claudette Colbert is still receiving congratulations over her elopement, with Doctor Pressman, who was called to attend her when her sinus trouble was aggravated by the rain scenes in "It Happened One Night." Joan Crawford and Franchot Tone are still in a honeymoon mood. Fred Astaire, happier than ever before, is set to make more -pictures with •Ginger Rogers, who proved not to be so successful in "In Person," •which she made alone, as she is when she's working with him. —*— If you've heard the very popular serial "One Man's Family," on the air (and you should have; It's been going on for years), you'll be Interested to know that both RKO and Paramount are bidding for the screen rights; want to do It with the same people nnd everything. —*— "Captain Blood" is one of the pictures you'll want to see; It's dramatic, thrilling all the way through, and brings to the screen a young man who's sure to be a star—Krrol Flynn. Off the screen Mr. Flynn lias the quiet, reticent manner of Itonald Colman. He's very good looking, very intelligent, and most likable. —*— From Impresario Steve Trumbull, radio vet famed for yacht-racing through very stormy waters and for ills immortal broadcast of the feverish Dlllinger hunt In Indiana (while the late Public Enemy No. 1 was reposing n state or two away), comes this correction for the Item in which It was stated here that the Buck Rogers show had been taken off the air: "After stopping for one sponsor, i the Buck Rogers show was Imme| Ciately taken up by another. The ! show is presented on CBS twice I' from New York—once at G :00 p. m. EST (reaching the Middle West at 5:00 p. m.) and then re-broadcast to reach the mountain states at 5:00 p. m. their time and the Pacific coast at 4:00 p. m. coast time. Thanks for setting your public right on this." — if—. ODDS AND ENDS . . . During 1935 Guy Lombardo picked and played on the air ten songs which became hits • . .

By ELMO SCOTT WATSON BBRUARY 12, 1030 ... a red- letter day In America's calendar ... a holiday In most of the states of the Union . . . a day of remembrance, of eulogy, of "flinging his name against the stars." For this is Lincoln's birthday. But let us go back to another Lincoln's birthday . . . to February 12, 1SG1. A short, little locomotive with a flat-topped smokestack, is puffing along the single track that winds among the gently- rolling hills of Ohio. Back there In one of the wooden coaches a tall, gaunt man sits by a win- d»w gazing out over the bleak winter landscape. Yesterday he had stood on the rear platform of a train at the brick railway station In Springfield, 111. A crowd of nearly a thousand people, silent, bareheaded in the cold, drizzle of rain, had listened to these words: "Friends, no one who has never been placed In • like position can understand my feelings nt this hour nor the oppressive sadness I feel at this parting. For more than a quarter of a century I have lived among you, and (taring all that time I have received nothing but kindness at your hands. •Here I have lived from my youth till now I •m an old man. Here the most sacred trusts of earth were assumed; here all my children were born; and here one of them lies burled. To you, dear friends, I owe all that I have, all that I am. All the strange checkered past seems to crowd now upon my mind. "Today I leave you; I go to assume a tusk more difficult than that which devolved upon General Washington. Unless the great God who assisted him shall be with and aid me, I must fall. But if the same omniscient mind and the same almighty arm that directed and protected him shall guide and support me, I shall not fail; I shall succeed. Let us all pray that the God of our fathers may not forsake us now. To Him I commend you all. Permit me to ask that with equal sincerity and faith you will all invoke His wisdom and guidance for me. "With those few words I must leave you—for how long, I know not. Friends, one and all, 1 must now bid you an affectionate farewell." * * * "Now I am an old man," he hud said. Yes, Abraham Lincoln is fifty-two years old this twelfth day of February, ,1801. But he has come a long way In those 52 years. This should be a happy birthday for Abraham Lincoln. But his three boys, Bob and Willie and Tad, hear the sigh that escapes from his lips as he turns from the window and they hush their noisy play. And Mary Todd Lincoln sees In the deep-set eyes that look of sadness which will shadow the face of this "Man of Sorrows" for the next four years. Yes, he Is President-elect of the United States of America ... or should he say "the Disunited States"? Six weeks after his election South Carolina had passed its ordinance of secession. During the next month Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida had followed, the Palmetto state's lead. On February 4 representatives from these states had met at Montgomery. Ala., and organized the "Confederate States of America." Five more, Texas, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and Arkansas, were almost certain to Join the six that had already departed from the Union. The future course of three "border states," Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri, ns well as the northern slave state of Delaware, was doubtful. And always in the background loomed the threat of a fratricidal war between the North and the South. So much depended upon what he suld and how he said It that he had tolled, night and day, for three weeks over his Inaugural address. "He wrote it as a composer writes a symphony," says Don Glassman in the Washington Star. "He marshaled all the melody In words, •11 the rhythm of speech and euphony of language to build a monument out of cold syllables . , . He weighed every one on a musical scale. He employed them as full notes and half notes. He would pronounce each word separately and feel convinced of its necessity both as to thought and style. By the time he finished a sentence It would harbor no contradictory thought or coarse note. The words were riveted together, so that to strike out an adjective or syllable would upset the thought and leave a gaping hole to the sentence." Ever since his election, his mall had been full of letters bearing southern postmarks. Some were signed with the names and addresses of the senders; others were anonymous. They were filled with such words as "Black Republican," "mulatto scamps," "jail-birds," "rascals" and "thieves." "Caesar had his Brutus! Charles the First bis Cromwell. And the President may profit by EGG PRODUCTION WINTER PROBLEM Lincoln's Arrival in Washington. (FROM THE PAINTINO BY H.D. STITT) Proper Care and Management Are Vital. By H. H. Alp. Poultry Extension Spe- ciiUlat, University of Illinois. WNU Service. More favorable egg prices plus the seasonal rise places a premium on feeding and managing poxilti-y flocks for high winter egg production. Value of high egg production during the early winter is shown by farm management records taken from several farms during two years. The first year (locks that produced less tiian 10 per cent of the year's egg crop in October, November and December brought poul- trymen an average of 13.2 cents a dozen for eggs. Where 20 per cent or more of the year's egg crop was 1 produced during those months the average price for tlio your was 15.1 cents. In addition the annual production was higher where fall and winter production Increased. The second year the average price for the Hock of low f:\il nnd winter production was J0.4 cents ns compared to 20.7 cents where fall and winter production was high. Poor fall and winter egg production Is mi Indication that the flock naetls better euro and management. Tlio lions should have plenty of fresh, clean water from sunrise to sunset. Plenty of tin; right kind of feed should bo available at nil times. The laying house should bfi kept In repair so that drafts and leaks can bo avoided.

Crowding should be avoided with appropriately four square feet of floor space allowed for each hen.

J (FROM AN Oil A Lett er From the South. their example," warned another, which was signed "from one of a sworn band of 10 who have resolved to shoot you from the south side of the avenue in the inaugural procession on the fourth of March, 1801." And still another declared: "This Is to Inform you that there Is a club of 100 young men in this place who have sworn to murder you." It was hard for him to believe that anyone should desire his death. But conviction came at last. More disturbing, though, were the rumors of men in high places who were about to turn traitor to their country and who might have guilty knowledge of plans for reducing It to u state of anarchy. So he sent the adjutant-general of Illinois to Washington to sound out Gen. Wlnfield Scott, head of the army. Scott was n Virginian and his loyalty was suspected. Back came the reply from that doughty old fighter: "Tell Mr. Lincoln that, if necessary, I'll plant cannon at both ends of Pennsylvania avenue, and if any show their heads or even venture to raise a linger, I'll blow 'em to hell!" But not even such reassurance could bring peace to Lincoln's troubled mind. As the train bore him nearer and nearer to the capital and to the day when he would take the oath of of (ice, his despair deepened. "To the anxious, listening country his speeches on the journey to Washington were disappoint ing," writes Nathaniel W. Stephenson In "The Chronicles of America." "Perhaps his strangelj sensitive mind felt too powerfully the fateful ness of the moment and reacted with a sort ol lightness that, did not really represent the real man." Arriving In Philadelphia he was Informed 1 that Allan Plnkerton's Secret Service men had uncovered Indisputable evidence of a well-laid plot to assassinate him. He was urged to leave the City of Brotherly Love that night. His reply was: "I have promised to raise the flag over Independence hall tomorrow morning and visi the legislature at Harrisburg. Beyond that '. have no engagements." After the Harrisburg reception a special train consisting of a locomotive, baggage car and coach sped back to Philadelphia. There Allan Pinkerton met the President-elect with a well guarded carriage In which he was taken swiftly across the city to another station where he boarded a sleeping car. On the morning of February 23 the wires hummed with, the news that the new Preslden had made a secret entrance into the capital "The Prince of Balls sneaked In under the cove O PRIMT) of night," sneered some of his enemies. Others called him "that Illinois ape." Thus Abraham Lincoln came to Washington, Vever before nor since has a President-elect en- Selecting the Cockerel for BreedingPurposes Cockerels that arc selected for breeding purposes should show early sexual maturity. This is Indicated by the rapid development of the i:omr) and wattles and the age nt which they crow. The sixe of tlio body is an important characteristic of a good breeder and may he determined by handling the bird. High constitutional vigor is an important point as it affects the general appearance, si/.e and shape of the bird, asserts a writer in the American Agrlc'iiltiirlst. Cockerels having this vigor are alert, active, refined and woll-dovolopod. The ered the nation's capital to assume -the .duties head of the vigorous ninln Is wide jf liis high oflice under such circumstances. The next eight days were a nightnmror— of per- jislent annoyance by n horde of job-seekers, of uinors of disasters that were about to befall, of threats, of sneers, of countless Indignities. ; March -1 dawned a "blue Monday." It had )oen raining. Pennsylvania avenue was a broyd ilghway of spattery mud. Silence hung heavy over the crowd massed around the Willard hotel as President Buchanan and President-elect Lincoln entered an open barouche and started up the avenue toward the Capitol. Sharpshooters vere stationed on the house-tops with orders to sweep the avenue with their fire if there was my uprising. In the side streets troops were massed ready for action. Other detachments were stationed beside the Capitol steps and icar the north entrance a battery of artillery was ready to unleash a blast of death If need be. Still unfinished, the Capitol dome was surmounted by huge derricks held In place by steel cables. "People might have drawn a striking :>nral!e) between the condition of the republic ind Us chief building . . . On n level with the spectators stood the bronze figure of Liberty which would later surmount the dome. Perhaps she was making silent appeal to the man In black," He stepped forward until he stood beneath a canopy surmounted by the Stars and Stripes. For the first time a wave of cheering swept over the crowd of 30,000 massed on the Capitol steps and In front. "Fellow citizens of the United States!" There was emphasis on that word "United." The murmur of the crowd was hushed as (inn. clear, far-carrying voice went on: his "The Union will endure forever no state upon Its own mere motion can lawfully get out across,the skull, sot with full proin- jnent eyes and luis a strong arched hack.
