The Ames -Post members sang old war time .songs, and dedicated the program to the ,1200 buddies who are in 13 Iowa hospitals. f An address was given .by Grace Gilbert King, department rehabilitation chairman, of West Union; -which was most interesting, as most ot Mrs. King's work Is among the disabled in hospitals.

Algona Cops on the Job, Boys Learn Algona's police force Is Investigating every suspicious action in Algona, and a week or so ago, looked over a group of Esther- vine youths who had stopped at a filling station here after the station had closed. The Esther- vllle Enterprise tells the story as follows; When -vye Were returning from Valley junction from the football game we had the Algona cops Investigate two carloads of the boys. Norman Maine's car was ahead of Morris Zalk's and it was noticed the Maine car was weaving some. The boys got out and looked their tires over. One of the rear tires was low. After discussing the situation It was thought advisable to drive to a filling station we knew was down the road a short distance, east of Algona. The Maine car pulled under the cover and the Zalk car furnished the lights for the work. Not long after we stopped a car drove up at top speed and came to a sudden stop In front of us. A cop alighted and demanded what we were doing there. Herbert Allen said we were fixing a tire as fast as we could. The cop sized us up, went around the cars and we expect took the numbers and speeded back to town. Now that is service for the Algona cops. They are on the job all o. k. Some one must have tipped them off on what a hard looking bunch we were. After the cop left one of the boys remarked, "Well, If some bunch would hold this place up now, wouldn't we be In a H— of a mess". RED GROSS DRIVE GETS UNDER WAY IN ANNUAL CALL Mrs. Sadie Denton, Titonka., will head the fifteenth annual Red Cross membership drive elusive of Algona.

The first developed when a pass for^ 30-yd. gain paved the way.

The second half of.the game was played mostly in the center of the during the entire summer he.spent In Europe. Germany was in the midst of a business slump when Mr. Huenhold was there.

He had no difficulty, for United States money was eagerly accented.

AMBASSADOR BILL may_not be ** • Will Rogers 1 ' most pretentious talkie btft It certainly lacks nothing from ah entertainment point of view; the critics have hammered it for weeks but for the life of us, we can't see what all the hoHerln' la about. True the story and plot are old and musty with age, having been done hundreds of times with variations but there Is nothing jarring about having a typical American "bust" Into the court of James and Bet by with It, IB there? Of course, It is this self same assurance and failure to observe certain customs of the court that -has cost us a great deal of prestige In matters applying to foreign diplomacy. Incidentally, it has made the tTnited States the laughing stock of the older and moro traditionally hide-bound Latin countries In matt'ers concerning the state but 'tut-tut—this Is not a treatise on foreign relations but a discussion of Will Rogers' latest talkie. AMBASSADOR BILL has a lot of good honest laughs, mostly at the expense of some of oUr national political foibles, Including the Senate, Prohibition, the Republican party, andvthe tariff, and Will gets them make tho usual happy ending, final scenes of this picture- are tfctgid but the double ' above comes killing mentioned a relief after the e ngony of suffering through endless* reels of matrimonial misunderstand' Ings and complications! yds, they ought to shoot a couple of good, high priced stars in every picture. IRVING' PILCHBR, district attorney in The American Tragedy, Is excellent its the rather vague husbtlnd of the blond Lllyan, while' Skeets Gallagher supplies the comedy element and ffbsh, how they do need It long In this picture. To make story short, perhaps this your field with neither team ma .king great gains. The day was cold and the players used open faced gloves to keep' their hands warm. Tennis shoes were worn Instead of the usual shoes because of the frozen ground. Snow fell during most of the second half of the game, making the field slippery. WISCONSIN WOMAN DIES IN VISIT TO WESLEY NIECE FATAL SPEED BOAT OWNER FREED BY SUPREME COURT Milo Hartman, owner of the speed boat Zipper that figured in a fatal boat collision at the Okobojis couple of years ago, was released from serving a three year sentence In the penitentiary a week ago when the supreme court reversed the Dickinson county court trial He has not served any of the tln-ee years sentence, it is understood here but has been out on bond. Nine persons were drowned when the Zipper and Miss Thriller collided In July, 1929. N, G, KRASCHEL, HARLAN HOG EXPERT, JN_SENATE RACE Many Kossuth breeders of purebred stock have noted with Interest that N. G.

The perfectly Marguerite Churchill plays the part of ;he young queen with quiet dignity; we are still wondering why they _rave»is that flash of her in her step- ins. Perhaps it was because the flaxen haired Greta Nisson got her dress caught in a door and from necessity, -was forced to be shown In hers. Well, both these young ladles are exceedingly easy to look at. Ambassador Bill Is a good clean plc< ture, points a good moral and gives the inimitable Will Rogers an opportunity for displaying his ready wit and his nimble lasso. FURTHERMORE, it Is our Idea of a good Sunday night picture; In fact, the entire program was well selected, both short .subjects being above the average. We got a lot of laughs out of the Luclan Llttlefleld and Ford Sterling comedy and the Grantland Rice horse-reel was great. Well, at least the new week starts auspiciously. T HE ROAD TO RENO reminds us of a cheap glass stone in a platinum setting; a tenement house on 'a country estate or any other Incongruous combination of fact and fancy; here Is a picture as gorgeously mounted as any talkie that has been shown at the Call for a coon's age and yet as devoid of plot, reas Idea of a good night's entertain menti If so, we hope you enjoyed It We did too, but that wasn't the fault of the picture. G EORGE BANCROFT'S - picture are always disarming to review; to our knowledge, he' has never made a really poor picture; on the other hand, try as w e may, we are unable to recall the title of a single past success although we have never missed one. His stuff Is always the same and for this, we must give him credit. He Is the William Hodge : of the screen. He has found a formula for successful, entertaining pictures and he sticks to his discovery. Rich Man's Folly follows 'the pattern quite closely. HERE WE HAVE the successful, power-drunk business man who banks everything on his name; "lust for power, greed for money" Is th« text of his sermon this time and he sacrifices his wife, his daughter and finally his son, on this altar of his all consuming passion. .It Is a compelling, throbbing, heart rending tale of selfishness, with a large Thanksgiving audience 'sobbing, sniffing and wiping away the tears on several occasions; from a lachrymatory standpoint, Rich Man's Folly Is a knockout. George te handicapped with a huge figure, a kindly but rather unattractive face, and a gruff, repelling personality. He Is therefore, limited In the scope of his activities. But he makes the most out of what he has. FIRST HONORS must go to the attractive Frances Dee, who, as the neglected daughter, plays her part with a quiet, impressive dignity; In soveral scenes of high emotion, she puts just the right' constraint Into an exceedingly difficult role. We liked her better in Rich Man's Folly than we did in The American Tragedy. The youngster is excellent and we find words of appreciation for another juvenile actor.

She had been ill but a few days, having fallen Thanksgiving day on an oven, causing the fracture of two ribs. Mrs. Mueller was born In Germany on October 3, 1845, and was 88 years old.

Football Team Entertained. The football team, the cheer leaders, and. Coach Aubrey Bonham were guests of the mothers of the members of the team at the high school building Tuesday evening.

The cause of death is not known. • The jack was considered the largest In the U. S., and was a prize winning animal. patrons for months. Reno, that famed cancer of the near-West, that sore in the fair state of Nevada, surely offers something more in the line of a- plot than has been unearthed in this talkie. Think of the possibilities of something really subtle, something with finesse, something at once daring and of merit which could be built around this market place of divorces. The very thought appalls us. Let us hasten to assure you that The Road to Reno, billed as an amusing satire, Is simply a dumb attempt to elevate a decidedly mediocre story to the realm of a hit by a capable cost and lots of "jack". THE SLINKY Lilyan Tashmari, nVbre blond than ever, seems fairly to float through the scenes, her in- nane conversation adding to this effect of utter lightness; she is the most stupid' feminine character in her part, understand who has ever walked across the silver screen to our recollection, not even excepting that expert of dumb-bell roles, Zazu Pitts. Charles (Buddy) Rogers and Peggy Shannon are both well cast as the youthful lovers who are caught in the whirlpool and rushed towards almost certain doom, only to be rescued when a murder and a •suicide clear the atmosphere and Ames, as the loveri is only fair and does not equal his past performances. The settings and photo graph y ar e good and taken as a whole, Rich .Man's Folly is an ideal Thanksgiving show, providing an hour of rare entertainment. And after a big- Thanksgiving dinner, with its attendant grogginess and lassitude,, this Is just what most folks want in the line of amusement. E VEN GENIUS has Its weak moments; witness The Unholy Garden from the pens of the brll- lalnt team of Hecht and MacArthur, coauthors of the Front Page and other successes. Nothing could have- been worse. We are afraid that the "millions of movie fans who-clamof for Ronald Colman in an action picture" (as the trailer announced) expect something beside mei-e action in their talkies. We note our favorite pen and Ink artist, Willy Pogany, in the cast as one of the designers of the settings; et tu, Brutus? After various flashes -of moving trains, telegraph operators and detective bureaus, the scene finally settles down In an old castle In the desert, where intrigue is rife and love comes quickly to the handsome Ronald.
