The pastors made many favorable comments concerning the new church recently dedicated. A divine service^^yaW 'held Tuesday evening for thfc pastors, In which the con' fesslonal address was held by Vis :tor Kabelitz, pastor of the Fenton Lutheran church. The main ser> mon was delivered by the Rev. H. Wagner, of Terrill, a message of loyalty to Lutheranism and loyalty to the Holy Scriptures.

Wednesday evening, however, the pastors did relax while they enjoyed a social evening In the church parlors. Tho. Rev. and Mrs. Wittenberg served a lunch at the close of the evening. The local Aid served the noon and evening meals for the clergy In the church basement, while others took the ministers into their homes for the night. There Is every reason to believe that the conference was a decided success in every way. Club Studies Minnesota— Mrs. Geo. Hanselman was hostess to the Progressive Women's club Friday. Eleven members and four Last .week's festhervllle prise, in reporting the 'Fort Defiance dedication,, recalled the days of the Algfona Brownies In a talk with. Harvey thgham. The article follows: Last Thursday we again met Harvey Ingham of the Register ,who was In the city for the park dedication. Whenever we meet Mr. Ingham there seems to be one thing'he remembers. Years ago the Northern Blizzards Ball Team defeated the Algona team at Algona. At the game Mr. Ingham says they were trying to gfet a' foot race. He also says cash was not plentiful at that time. What cash they did have, they used to back their foot racer. When the race was over he said they.had dlS' covered they' did not have a racer they just thought they did. He says while George Allen was a small man his feet went fast and he took the race and his followers took the money and departed In their lumber wagons across the prairie for Kstherville. Mr. Ingham does not say he lost anything but he certain M ONKS* BUSIKSSSS Is all that the name Implies! a more suitable and fitting title for thU £ort> pourrl of slapstick comedy and wisecracking gags could hardy be c6n- cejved. It Is monkey business frdm tHe time the foiir comedians emerge from fouf barrels on shipboard to the grand finale lit the barn,where Groucho Marx, oh belng'aiked *nat he IB doing, poking around In a P»e of straw, answers, "I'm looking for a needle In a hay-Stack." The present production is the best thing the Murx brothers have ever done and a the only show we have been able to sit through to the bitter end FULL LENGTH comedies, as wo have observed In the past, are usual ly very trying on the nerves simp ly because there Is nothing so tire us sustained talkie humor ly does remember the toot race am its terrible results to the flnancia standing of Algona. guests were present, topic was Minnesota. The program Mrs. Burdette Sexton Monkey Business moves fast, Is broken by plenty of sheer physlca notion and Is teo full ot the partlcu lor brand of quiet nonsense fo which the Marx brothers are justl famous, as to be almost disconcerting at times. Groucho Marx, he of the black mustache, as usual, bears the brunt of the action, and his stuff runs something like this. A gangster asks him what he did with his gun, to which Groucho replies, "I threw the gat away but we have some nice black gittens". If you i&aton, btWKht, up *^«th a ' screen) spoon ih hla mouth produce a lousy comedy like Sidewalks of New York? Why, indeed? There are more laughs in a single reel of Palmy Days than In the 12 or 13 of most comedies. PALMY DAYS is what is generally termed, "eye &nA ear entertain ment," meaning that pretty tunes nd pretty girls keep up the Interest 'while the main attraction Is off-stage. Eddie Is the whole show although Charlotte Greenwood is better than usual. The scene^ of this musical extravaganza Is laid In an «P to date bakery and most of the helpers are bnkerettes. Florenz Zlegfteld must have pick' ed out the members of the chorus at least, they leave nothing to be desired In matters of pulchritude; in the scenes In the gym and the swimming pool, they leave almost nothing to the Imagination. There are catchy tunes, lively dances and sprightly humor In this show—and the Production '« mounted on a- . cat WHew 1 Wftde IftM yettf rt.hd.lt Is nioet BtUpOndoilB, Hittflt; MoW nd Ida ohn hemmed, ana meeting, songs were »<was received 01 tllH, which wIllboaoM," 1 '!* u:ttoe.-' Thcn 'l^'Mhi, have «ver"*een. fieteiotore the price of thti gigantic musical show has been almost prohibitive but with a towe'rihi?'~6f the tariff, Manager Illcfe Will show It at the Call at admission.

The Twin Cities was the topic of a paper prepared by Laura Engel. Members each named Minnesota lake or river In response to roll call. A comparison of Minnesota and Iowa schools was given In the general discussion. Refreshments were served by the hostess assisted by Florence Hintz. Several Families Move— Severn! families have moved recently. The Pete Rubergs now live in the middle rooms of the Brink residence; the Charles Pattersons in the front part of the same house. The Lloyd Zentners are occupying the Hal Rogers house and Ralph Dimlers have moved into the house tho Zentners formerly occupied. Mr. Reaman, of Humboldt, who runs the Standard Oil truck now. has moved his family into the Mrs. Will Nisse n house. August Klrschbnum, who went to Iowa City for a medical examination in the- clinic last week Tuesday, returned Monday.

Harpo Marx again plays his harp and Chico the piano, in varying degrees of taste and selection while Zeppo is the "gentleman" who supplies the slender thread of love interest nnd finally rescues the beautiful heroine from the lonely barn, as the clock was strlcking the hour of midnight AS IS THE CASE with most ol the Marx Brothers' productions (at least it has been a previous observation) the photography is rather poor and certainly not up to the standard of the men who are here featured. Lighting is poorly handled and. there isn't a good ship-shot in the show. This is unfortunate. But outside of this, Monkey Business is good, clean fun and business was good at the Call both nights. And that's something during these days of "repression." the modern dance and many of the chorus numbers are marvel of optical beauty. Shots from unusual angles heighten the effect. THERE IS the usual meagre musical comedy plot, with -a few gangsters thrown in for good measure. Mr. Cantor has used many of his old tricks but he has some new ones too; for example, his duck quack- quack, which he used most effectively in many shots. When asked what the "capital" of the U. S. is he replies, "About half of what it was last year." Good clean fun and plenty of laughs.

AA'e have found ourselves entirely inadequate when it comes to reviewing so called 'children's pictures like 1'enrod and Sam, Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, etc. It occurred to us that we Anight offer two prizes of, say, six free tickets to the boy or girl, under 12, who would submit the best short review of a current, strictly children's talkie. We will keep this idea in mind and possibly in the future, when an appropriate picture comes along, we will advise readers of this column in plenty of time so that the children may have an opportunity of displaying their genius along the proper lines of criticism. Possibly we may unearth some latent talent. FOR THE IMMEDIATE present we have elected our own son (who will necessarily be barred from any contest) to cover the current production. Ted, the critic, says, "Pen rod and Sam Is a child's picture Leon Janney plays the part of Pen rod and Junior Caughlin plays Sam Older people would not like thi show as much as children because it shows boys' sports, fights, and quarrels between brothers and sisters (A- rather keen observation.^— Ed. Note). It shows how much a boy loves his pet, a dog by the name of Duke who is run over by an auto and killed. Penrod is heart broken Seniors Hosts to Faculty, School— Lu Verne seniors entertained the rest of the high school and the faculty last Thursday night in tfie gymnasium. Almost all high school pupils and all of the faculty were present. The evening was spent playing games, after 'which refresh ments were served by the seniors.

The father', not knowing how much his son cares or how much he plays in the back yard, sells it. When the boy. wants to buy back just the dog's grave, the buyer will not sell it to him; his father now sees what he has done to spoil his son's fun and buys the property back, paying $250 more for It. Then the boys go back to the good old days. The story is sad In some parts but very natural. The dog sleeps with his master, Penrod.
