This group holds a reunion every year. A FTER THE COMMON LAW, almost any picture with Constance Bennett would he, at least, a relief! It would be most unusual If it did not stand out boldly in comparison. It goes without saying, then, that Bought, with a rejuvenated Constance, supported by a loving father (Richard) was favorably -received by Call theatre patrons. Almost without exception, this latest picture of Miss Bennett's pleased. Curiously, she again T>lays the part of the model, as she did in the Common Law, but the plot is more plausible, or shall we say, more passable. At best, it is nothing to get Into a lather about, but at least, It belongs to the present decade, which is something:. The picture is riartlcularly Interesting because we see Father Richard Bennett (veteran actor of the stage) and Daughter Constance In the same production, each playing up to the other, each interested In gaining screen laurels. MR BENNETT TAKES the part f a ladles' ready-to-wear buyer Who nterests himself , In models, and Indfl in Constance not only a model ut his own illegitimate daughter. she prefers the company or society f the idle rich at Newport, where he frolics about with a young cub eporter, ignoring the platonlc ad- •ances.of her father. Finally, cbmr ng to her senses, she gives promise f 'pursuing the more noble and in- elligent arts and the picture ends lapplly, as most successful must. A ND NOW NANCY_ CARROLL ^ has turned*' Garbo; with an af- ectatlon which is extremely paln- ul, with much posturing and quirmlng, with lines which seem loubly flat because they are so insipid, our little Nancy flounders lopelessly about in the intricate meshes of The Night Angel. Here is v picture, that just misses being a gem, but a "miss is as good as a mile", so they say, and The Night Angel falls by the wayside. Not that t is wholly bad—far from it — this ntriguing talkies has its big "moments." Laid in the distant city of Prague, it is the story of the poor, ittle pure girl, who doesn't have a chance In a den of vice and the Ighteous crusader who sees her leart of gold and is determined to get it. Yes, he succeeds, amidst such deeds of self-sacrifice as are seen only on the screen.. Highs Entertain the Lows— The six high members of the Idle Hour bridge club were entertained by the six low members of the club at luncheon at the shelter house at the Ambrose A.

KATE JOHNSON DIES IN WISCONSIN; BURIAL TO-MORROW Mrs. Kate Johnson, pioneer Kos suth woman, died at the home o: her daughter, Mrs. Clara Tessin, o Janesville, Wis., at 'noon yesterday Death followed a stroke which sh suffered Monday. Mrs. Johnson had been ill for a week or so, but hei condition was not thought serious She was. 79 years old. The body will be brought to AI gona today, and taken to the ol home farm in Plum Creek township which is now the home of the Har vey Johnsons. Funeral services wll be conducted sometime tomorrow and burial will be made in Rivei view beside her husband, Ole John son, who died some nine years ago Mrs. Johnson was born in Den mark December 2, 1851. She came to this country with her parent, when she was a young woman am settled with the family in Hamil ton county, where she was marrlec to Mr. Johnson. They made thel home there till they came to Kos suth and settled in Plum Creek township, where they lived 46 years till they retired and moved to Al gona in a918.

A family reunion had been planned for next Sunday and Airs. Johnson had been looking forward event with pleasure. to th< The Methodist AV. F. M. S. meets Friday afternoon with Mrs. W A Foster. Election of officers will b held. Beg Pardon In last week's Advance it was re ported that Thor Brighton, of Sen eca township, had been jailed on a bad check charge. It was Mr. Brlgh ton's son Edwin who was sentenced and the Advance was misinformed. movies THE PICTURE starts with an extremely "atmospheric" street scene which is spoiled by a rocking camera; follows then,'a dramatic and rather touching episode in a vice-den with the Countess carrying away all the honors and poor Nancy a mere amateur in comparison. And by the way, Nancy has done a "Joan Crawford" with her eye-brows; if some idnd person will tell us just why these women pluck their expressive eyebrows, we'd certainly appreciate it. The effect produced by this little facial operation is grotesque and certainly adds nothing to the effec- tivness of the actress. The meeting of the poor little pure girl at the home of the wealthy vice crusader (Frederic March) is absurd, but there are many plausible scenes following this one. In fact, The Night Angel runs constantly from the sublime to the ridiculous—a -highly dramatic and well done scene is followed by one which is stupidity personified. AND YET, with all its apparent faults, this .is an entertaining talkie, because it is placed in a romantic setting and is played by intelligent, capable actors. That it "misses fire" is due chiefly to dts stupid dialog and impossible situations. W E WERE MORE than pleased last Saturday night to note a prominent young attorney of more than average Intelligence dashing madly into the Call theatre to see Buck Jones in The Avenger. "This is my meat," he cried wildly as he bumped into a customer in the lobby.^ Let the presidents have their detective stories—we common folk may still have our shootin', rootin', tootin 1 westerns. We're all for the young attorney and his democratic tastes—give us a good Buck Jones or a Hoot Gibson every time. fighting millionaires at their own game. She is ably supported with a splendid oast. Her daughter, played by Frances Dadej reminds us, of Ann Hardjng In Holiday. Tom, her son, is played by Lawrence Gray and- he does a neat job of the several highly geared scenes with his mother, , JAMES HALL, always a sure bet, coines through nobly os the lover. The production Is well staged throughout and while some of the recording is not clear, the faultless diction of Miss Robson, after years of stage training, more than overcomes the shortcomings of the sound. It Is after seeing a talkie like Mother's Millions that we fully realize what the movies are doing for us In bringing the delicate shadings of acting within a few feet of our eyes, a feat which was never possible on the legitimate stage. Hats off to May Rofoson, veteran actress and the light of vitality which the years have failed to dim. W HILE WE ARE NOT GIVEN much" to praising the advance pictures before we have seen them, wo cannot completely suppress a mild enthusiasm for the September list of talkies. It Is the most Interesting group that has come to our attention for a long time. There Is Merely Mary Ann with Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell which (s so "hot" that the big critics have not even seen It. Sporting Blood Is a racing picture and notable because It gives our old favorite, Clark Gable an opportunity to star In something except a gang picture. THIS MODERN AGE Is supposed to toe Joan Crawford's best, so you Joan fans have something to look forward to. Huckleberry. Finn has been playing the "big time" in Chicago and New York for several weeks—here's a good one for the kiddies. Young as You Feel, with 'Will Rogers, is sure-fire. Bad Girl, with a newcomer, James Dunn, and a favorite of ours, Sally Eilers, is given great write-ups by tfie most caustic of the critics. Born to Love Is the third Constance Bennett show within a month and the best. WHETHER YOU LIKE Maurice Chevalier, don't miss The Smiling Lieutenant; it's clever and naughty, a good combination. The*Star Witness with Walter Huston and Fran- cis'Starr brings two outstanding personages to the' silver screen in one performance; we wouldn't miss this one for anything. Now If that isn't an interesting "line-up," then the talkies are "sunk." And in addition, three good rousing westerns for .-Saturdays. Wow — save 'your pennies for September at the Call. .

We can still dimly remember the thrill of this memorable night in Chicago. Tonight at the Call this same actress, apparently with all her vigor Intact, stirred a responsive chord in our heart and sent us from the theatre in a most agreeable frame of mind. Mother's Millions may be an old chestnut, highly seasoned with dramatic spice, but it makes a delightful evening's entertainment. And it brings to the silver screen another old stager, a feminine counterpart to our beloved George Arliss. Mother's Millions is built around the talents of Miss Robson in much the same manner as Disraeli was written 'to give Mr. A-liss an opportunity to display his particular genius. MAY ROBSON may not be our most celebrated American actress but in this talkie she gives us an enjoyable portrayal of a 'grouchy Hetty Green who finally succumbs to the tender offices of love, after a life spent in gathering millions and Out of the Fire! comes the finest of the world's county FAIRS the Clay County Fair at Spencer Have YOU seen it?
