In the second game Whittemore barely nosed out Gilmore City, 27-26, in the Inst minute of play, after Gilmore City led all the way.

It is one of a triad of "Ex's"— the others are Ex-Wife and Ex- Husband. It makes a much better talkie than book, or perhaps we are not ns critical of movies as we are of books. It concerns tho vicissitudes of a conscientious mistress who wants to be fair with the wife —1C such examples of self-sacrifice survive outside the pages of modern novels! The wife does not love her huaband, and conveniently obtains a divorce, thereby leaving tho stige clear for reconciliation of the Ex- Mistress and the unhappy hero. The play has been re-named "Her Past." Bere Daniels plays the feminine lead, with Ben Lyon as the erring husband, later the successful lover. Joan Bloondell, as the mistress's maid',' contributes a clever bit of incidental acting. Lewis Stone, as the big-hearted old Don Juan, plays his usual, carefully, acted part, suave, self-satisfied, sure-footed. Natalie Moorhead plays the part of the wife with extreme indifference; her's is the weakest acting of the play. The setting and direction leave nothing to be desired, and while the entire production Is a bit sophisticated, it so far surpasses the novel that It goes for "satisfactory adult entertainment." TAiVTHER'S SOISi Is an unpreten- r tious, appealing little picture lieve stomach trouble, from which he had been suffering for some timp.

HOTEL WHERE TITONKIAN WORKED BURNS TO GROUND Titonka, Mar. 24—Kermit, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. B. Larson, who has been employed at the AVoods hotel, Iowa Falls, for the past year, ad- based on a story by Booth Tarkington which seems to catch the spirit of this author's insight into boys and their problems. Lewis Stone plays the part of the misunderstanding parent who tries at a too early an age In the boy's life, to impress the youngster with his responsibility. It is really another Tom Sawyer, replete with intimate scenes of typical boy-life. Young Leon Janney turns in a convincing and truthful picture of a youngster, who wants his fun and chooses his friends without regard for the color line. 'The climax, beginning with the separation of the father from the mother and the boy but ending in happy reconciliation, was carefully worked out by Director AVil- liam Beauddine, to whom too much credit cannot be given for rather masterly handling of many delicate situations. Here's a good picture for the whole family to see—one of the few perhaps. That it will never be a box-office success goes without saying; there isn't enough appeal and action to sijit the adventure-loving American audience. But it's a good | picture nevertheless, and one we hope you didn't miss. T HE QUESTION OF the effect of moving pictures on the minds of children is one which is receiving some adult consideration. AVith a view to contributing some tangible material for discussion, we offer a review of the Saturday show, written by our youthful son, which is average, we trust. May we offer this literary effort without either giving too much credit nor taking too much for granted?— "The Conquering Hord is the story of the moving of 5,000 cattle from Texas, where they were worthless, to Missouri, where they were worth $20 .a head. They were led by a ranchman, played by Richard Arlen. Another main character was the girl, Fay AVray, who played the part of the boss.of the ranch after her father died. "They had good weather on the trip for about two months, and then struck a storm which lasted two days. After a long and hard struggle they saw the city for which they were heading and which was welcoming them. The villain wanted to get them in trouble and shot an'In- dian squaw. But the ranchman and the girl were ready for the danger and because they stood well with the Indians and with Blue Cloud, their chief, no harm came to them, after they had turned over the man who did the killing. 'The hero and another Indian threw some fire • on the , thatched roof of the villain's hut, the villain went out the back way, but was finally captured and turned over to the Indians. They made $2,000." Does this shed any light on the much-mooted question of the effect of the modern movie on the mind of a child? Our unbiased guess would lie, "None whatsoever," so we'll let it go at that. vised his parents by Thursday evening that telephone the hotel had been completely destroyed by fire that evening, but that no one was injured. Harley Larson had just left to spend a few days as his brother's guest there. Fire departments from surrounding towns were called, but blaze. could not check the Johamisen Home Sold. Henry Johannsen Sr. has sold hie home on south Jones to Ralph Har- verts, of Grundy Center, who, will take possession April 1. Mr. Har- verts is a retired farmer who x was married in February. BD6 is a cousin of Mrs. John Van Deest. Mr. Johannsen will build a new home at once on a lot Just south of the hojise sold to the Harverts. ••'.•• • ••.• YOUNG LOTTS CREEK MOTHER OF SIX DIES Mrs. Arthur Luedtke, young Lot'ts Creek mother of six children, died suddenly last week Tuesday after a day's Illness with intestinal flu. Funeral services were held Friday at the Evangelical Lutheran church at Lotts Creek, with the Rev. E. Fiene In charge, and burial was made In the Lotts Creek cemetery. Mrs. Luedtke was born In Pom- merania, Germany, April 30, 1894, and Is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Seegebarth, of Fenton. She accompanied her parents to the United States when she was four years old, and has lived In the Lotts Creek neighborhood since that time. She was married to Mr. Luedtke April 15, 1915, and besides her husband Is survived by six children, .Edwin, attending Fenton high school, Harold, attending the Lotts .Creek parochial school, Verona and Viola, and two small children at home. She le also survived 'by her parents, four brothers, Louis, at home, Erich, attending a Mankato business college, John, Fenton farmer, and Ben, Chicago, and .three sisters, Mrs. Wm. Dreyer, Fenton, and Martha and Lydia Seegebarth, at home. Mrs. Luecjtke attended the Lotts Creek parochial school, and was confirmed March 24, 1907, remaining a member of the Lotts Creek Lutheran church. ONALD COLMAN in The Devil - to Pay portrays a character distinctly Continental—the idle son of a rich man, who nevertheless possesses all the instincts of a gentleman. In America the type (especially in the movies) always runs into some viciousness which spoils the picture. Here is clever, sophisticated comedy of the ultra-smart variety, a cast of notable actors, and fruitless direction. What a happy combination for a pleasant evening's entertainment. Ronald Colmnn is Ideally east in the part of Willie, the likeable, indolent son of a rich English squire. Dorothy, played by the lovely Lor- ctta Young, falls in love with him on his return from Africa, breaks up her engagement with a Russian nobleman, and after several amusing complications leads the rather surprised Willie to 4 the altar. That the story is without merit or consequence goes without saying; but there is finesse, skill in the manner in which it is presented to the audience. Therein lies its charm. Mr. Colman's soliloquy with his dog while he is debating a question of ethics in love is one of the most charming bits of subtle acting we have seen on the screen for a long time. It is so unreal, so fantastic, yet it seems to be within the realm of possibility when played by the capable Ronald. Whatever may be said for The Devil to Pay, it Is safe to assert that every woman who eaw the picture, enjoyed it. Ronald Colman is that Idnd of a,n actor.
