We attended San Diego's most beautiful theater the Pox, and saw Charlotte Green wood in "Stepping Out." its main Interest centering around her trip to Callente, so our curiosity sends us on the novel adventure.

We approach it through a lane of tropical plantings. The buildings, of Moorish and Spanish architecture, glisten in the sunlight and Invite us to a vivit life of freedom and lassitude. Inside we find the Patio, with its seductive charm for eating am drinking while listening to the al luring soft music of guitars. If thi does not appeal, step into the dining room and eat, drink, and dance t the best of jazz Orchestras. Around the corner is the Casino resplendant with reproductions o Monte Carlo chandeliers of gold and crystal. A long, ornate bar runs the length of one side of the room. Here we behold what one has aptly termed "the gilded palace of iniquity". There is the 'clink' of crystal glasses and the 'click' of silver dollars which play a tattoo on our eardrums. We watch them play the games of chance, one dollar the minimum, Easy Money Paints Faces. ' The game may be fascinating, but the players are more So. Women and men, all trying to win "Easy Money".

The audience, however, is much more responsive, which sustains a contention of long standing, that audiences are the coldest Algona in the world.

S T. e. ceep his wife from being kissed | atre supreme. The voices at the orni the theme of most of the iomcdy scenes. AVlth this rather suggestive plot, t is to the everlasting credit of the lirector that he has kept both situations and dialog within the bounds of good, clean humor. Jeanette McDonald plays the feminine lead with considerable grace, although it Is a )ity to allow an actress with such a splendid voice to go through a whole show, without even a song. Roland Young as the dumb husband handles an exceedingly difficult part with constrained sincerity (whatever that means), while Una Merkle, as a flamboyant flapper (that's good, too) contributes most of the gag-laughs. Edmund Lowe as the bored sophisticate puts a quiet finesse into the part which might easily have been overdone by a less seasoned actor. An excellent Laurel and Hardy comedy, Laughin' Gravy, preceded the feature, and though it wae • a hangover from Sunday it was still good for a few hearty laughs. These two wise comedians have learned the value of pantomime from "Cousin" Charlie and are making good use of their knowledge. Their comedies are high-class, really funny, and depend on situations, not dialog, for their effectiveness. This story, written by Editor R. S. Sperbeck, appeared in last week's Swea City Herald. LOUIS, June 19 — We hav eeen four out of the five cur rent movies at the leading St. Loui theatres, so we follow the crowds to one of the city's outstanding summer attractions, the Municipal outdoor theatre, located in Forest Park, site of the World's fair of 1904. Here amid ideal surroundings are presented light operas in a mammoth open- air auditorium seating 10,000 people. The seats are arranged in tiers, rising to a great height and affording a clear view of the staTge, and amplifiers make it possible to hear from any point. The stage is fully 100 feet In width, and there are two giant oake which form dollars Is gone win; many lose. In a flash. Some The tenseness and the anguish In the players' faces Is T HE of background. Elaborate MALTESE FAiCON is one those improbable yarns centering around a supposedly priceless dojlgger which everyone seems to want and which always eludes capture. It ie the golden Blackbird or Maltese Falcon, with a history which dates back to the Roman Empire or thereabouts. No one seems to know what it Is all about, including the bewildered audience, which flounders helplessly in a sea of mystery and Intrigue as black as an Arabian night. The beautiful Bebe Daniele, still an elusive blonde, glides in and out of the proceedings a natural scenic effects are presented by- means of a revolving stage, thereby making it possible to set one scene while another is being enacted in front. Music in May, a musical romance enpugh for us. We saunter to the i in various stages of undress, some t of the dishes. kfast food, I advantages, o—o All hail the It r" seems to gift shop where one may immediately spend winnings for lavish Impor 1 tations, and rare, exotic perfumes. O.ut in the sunshine again, we walk to the Spas, gorgeous open air swimming pool. Here we recline in comfortable chalvs and watch the swimmers. The beautiful flowers, shrubs, and hug» vases surrounding the pool give it \ restful, peaceful seclusion. Caliente Is a place of moodk. One can find anything or do anything one desires, so long as one has the money and "appears" genteel. There is a smug air of ultra sophistication pervading over all. A Writhtagr, Wriggling Mess. ' Returning, we stop at Tia Juana to see this gambling "hole" by way of contrast. We wend our way through the foul-smelling street jammed with every conceivable type; class, and nationality. The slot machines and other devices are all dance What What are they seeking, fu n or forgetful nessv A woman staggers against us, saying "I can't hold another drink." And this is where you find ."Elegance and Comfort in Nature's own Background," so our hand bill informs us! Caliente and Tia Juana, the • land of the free but Americans pay dearly surrounded, every bar and hall crowded to the utmost, a writhing, wriggling mess! of them quite complete. There is murder by the wholesale, threats, police, district attorneys, all over a little statuette of a blackbird which you wouldn't take as a gift for a mantelpiece, Ricardo Cortez wastes his questionable talents as a would-be detective in this story. The piece becomes so heavy and involved that we never did make head or tail out of the darned thing. Una Merkle and Dudley Dlgges add to the confusion by rushing in and out of doors, windows, and staircases at Just about the time you begin to see a ray of light. If you go to the talkies for diversion and entertainment this is pretty heavy fare, especially now that warm weather is upon us and brains become sluggish. It would take a Sherlock Holmes to figure It out, so we'll just "check and double-check" and let it go at that. D ES MOINES, Wednesday, _June 17—Des Moinee is hot" and sticky after a torrid day, and we seek the refreshing cooled air of the Paramount theatre. The opening comedy Is worse than usual, but is heartily enjoyed bv the Des Moines audience. The stage show is worth the extra dime we paid for admission, but no more. The Lawyer's by Maury Rubens, is the play, and a 100-piece symphony orchestra conducted by Rubens himself gives the production a truly metropolitan touch. Much of the talent is from the city, which gives- a local interest that we hear commented upon by members of the audience seated around us. Great floodlights under the stage serve two purposes: They throw a light over the vast audience, at the same time obscuring the stage while the scenery is being shifted for the next act. While the play is going on these lights are extinguished and overhead floods and More or less flurry arose among Swea City business men last week vhen Cashier R. A. Haglund noti- led them that beginning May 25 he Farmers Savings bank would 1m- iose service fees on their checking Accounts. This rule applies only to Business men and does not include the casual depositor and fanners. To start the argument Cashier Hagli says, speaking broadly a '.-.- man Hliould maintain a dally balance between $500 and $600 before his clicking account is of anj value whatever to the bank. Some local firms maintain such a balance some do not. Accordingly, the following sched ule of fees is now being charged: Every time the business man writes a check he is charged three cents. On every deposit he makes the charge is four cents. Each out of town check' he puts In for collection bears a charge of .two cents. On the other hand the business man receives credit for the amount of his average daily balance. If it is large enough, it i s possible his credit will overcome the total of the foregoing service charges. As an example: He wrote 53 checks. At three cents apiece his acount is charged with $1:59. He made ten- deposits. At four cents apiece that is 40 cents more. He took i n 24 out of town checks. At two cents apiece they amount to 48 cents. His bill for fees for the month amounts to $2.47. Meanwhile his daily balance has been under $1100. His account represents a loss to the bank unless the service fees are oss. Some fifteen years ago a Swea City banker called the Herald edi- or Into his bank and for several lours went over with him the costs connected with handling such check- ng accounts. At that time the banker,was on the fence over the question of whether he should impose service fees, but apparently he did not have the courage to make the break, for such fees have never been charged here before.

To Illustrate the disadvantage to which all banks are put, the question of "float" is cited. A. business man receives a check from out of town for $100. He cashes it at the bank. The money is immediately available to him. Meanwhile, the bank must wait at least four days before the check makes the rounds ahd it is finally given credit in its correspondent bank. Banks all over the country are tightening up on handling commer cial checking accounts.
