WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1M8. IRIS THEATRE PostviUe, Iowa i THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY APRIL 22, 23 and 24 "THE TRAIL OF THE VIGILANTES" —with Franchot Tone, Peggy Moran, Warren William. Andy Devine and Broderick Crawford This 85 minute action-packed "Western" was released in 1943. However, it has never played at this theater. Neither had "The Badlands of Dakota", which pleased everyone who saw it. The producers spent money on the Westerns they made before the war and the results show it. This one is great' ALSO Another side-splitting: three-reel Laurel and Hardy Comedy entitled— "Oliver The Eighth" Sure, it isn't a new one because these two haven't made a film ior five years, but new or old — you will laugh long and hard. ttmmw»imimnmw,,mv SUNDAY - MONDAY APRIL 25 and 26 Bad Abbott and Lou Costello "BUCK PRIVATES COME HOME" There has been seldom a week that passes by wherein someone hasn 't asked for this comedy or this pair of comedians. The picture has played in every theater to jam crowds, so there is positively no doubt about its merits. I doubt if any film released this past season is so packed with laughs as this one. If you haven 't seen "BUCK PRIVATES COME HOME" by all means do so now. ALSO For your enjoyment we have Borrah Minnevich and his Harmonica Rascals in fifteen mimites of music and fan- Also Merrie Melodie Technicolor Cartoon entitled— "A Slick Chick" Also—Pathe News. SUNDAY MATINEE . AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. WWM «WIIIWI»H[IIIIUHHHiiHIII4tHIIIII >mmil |H TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY APRIL 27 and 28 "ADVENTURE ISLAND" —with Rhonda Fleming and Rcry Calhoun Filmed in Cinecolor. The picture was advertised to play here March 2 and 3, but failed to arrive in time for a showing, owing to the blizzard which blocked the roads. It is packed with action and the color is beautiful. ALSO "FLASHING GUNS" —with Johnny Black Brown Here is a "Western" so full of action that there is hardly time to breathe. No stopping in this one to sing cowboy tunes. They just fly at it in this one. Tuesday & Wednesday — at? -r CASH NIGHTS! Mrs. John Kohrs submitted to surgery at Postville Hospital this morning. Mr. and Mrs. R. h.

PREVENT BROODER FIRES By CHECKING EQUIPMENT The season for brooder house fires is here again: And this year will probably be no exception, so far as losses are concerned. Norval Wardle, farm safety specialist a^ Iowa State College, says that thousands of dollars in equipment and chicks are lost east year by fires that could have been prevented. Wardle suggests that poultry growers check their brooder houses and equipment for faults such as rusted pipes, cracks in the firepot or ash pit. or bare, exposed wires in electric brooders. Leaky pipe connections, soot- caked burners and sticking thermostats cause fires in oil brooders. It takes only a few minutes to check any brooder thoroughly. In saving chicks from fire or suffocation, it's time well spent. FISH. When Mr. and Mrs. Monty Hood of Osceola stopped in at a Florida fishing resort recently, the proprietor showed them an eight- pound bass which had been caught by a guest the day before. The lady who caught the fish was Grace Robinson—also of Osceola, IF YOU'RE PLANNING ON AN Electric Hot Water Heater THIS SUMMER THEN SEE THE NEW Westinghouse Hot Water Heater BEFORE YOU BUY!
