IRIS THEATRE Postville, Iowa THURSDAY, FRIDAY and SATURDAY JULY 1, 2 and 3 "THE SENATOR WAS INDISCREET" —with Wiliam Powell. Ella Raines, Arleen Whalen and Peter Lind Hayes Here is a dish of fun that kids Washington politics and politicians. And it will really delight and entertain all types of people. Bill Powell seems to take the title role in big stride. So good is he that it appears that he thoroughly enjoys burlesquing a typical blustering senator. In fact Powell never has been in a picture that seems to have been really tailor-made for his particular ability. This is one swell comedy. iiiuimmmuui SUNDAY - MONDAY JULY 4 and 5 "THE MIRACLE OF THE BELLS" —with Virginia Valli, Fred* MacMurray, Frank Sinatra and Lee J. Cobb Here is a solid hit of the film version of the fine novel written by Russell Janney. It combines lact and fancy, realism and spiritual overtones that strikes the responsive chords in the hearts of all but the cynical. The splendid cast in which Frank Sinatra plays a young Catholic priest does a great job. Fred MacMurray is cast as a newspaperman and Virginia Valli as an actress. This clean and wholesome film should appeal to people of all faiths and particularly those of Catholic faith. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P. M. mnuimtmuiimin TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY JULY 6 and 7 "WESTERN HERITAGE" —with Tim Holt From the Zane Grey story of the same name. Here is another fine Tim Holt film — and why not — no one ever has written better 'West- em" novels than Zane Grey. ALSO "RIDING ON AIR" —with Joe E. Brown Fellow exhibitors have repeatedly told us that Joe E. Brown's old films have nearly as much appeal at the boxoffice as the Laurel and Hardy pictures. This "oldie" has never played here and many have never seen it. Brown is no longer in comedies. Tuesday & Wednesday — are— CASH NIGHTS! Mr. and Mrs. Julius Arundt of Milwaukee.

Beardsley, manager of the social security field office in Winona, Minnesota. This applies to all students no matter what their ages, or whether they expect to work only temporarily, part time, or only for a few hours. The number of workers in the firm or es tablishment where the students ex, pect to work is immaterial. Even if the student will be the only em ployee of the firm, he will need a social security account number. Students who have had social security cards but have lost them ^should apply for duplicate cards Well in advance of the time they expect to go to work. Since all applications for duplicate cards must be checked against the original applications, it takes approximately one week before a duplicate card can be issued. All wages which are reported for students with social security numbers' will be credited to their social security accounts. Such wages will be used in determining their eligibility and the amount of their social security benefits. Those from out of town here to attend the Lee B.
