Plow strange it has seemed not to be planning for her birthday, which, falling so near. Christmas, December 23, made these two days one. It te Indeed a comforting and pleasing memory to think of the many friends who made her 'open house' birthday one short year ago one of the best she ever had. And only two months later she passed quietly on. AVe know that were mother here she would want us, in the Journal, to extend to you the season's greetings.

AVe are old-fashioned enough (having learned a lesson during our mother's long invalidism) to make our calls among those who are shut-ins and bring a little cheer to them if possible. "We cannot refrain from telling the readers who remember our column how pleased we were to learn of the marriage of the bachelor editor, "Bill" Haggard, of the Algona Republican, which took place on the Flapper's birthday.

She has an electric radio beside her bed, given her by one of our dear friends, and how she does enjoy it. She can distinguish only light and dark and is getting quite deaf.

Miss Southgate lives in a most in- 1s to be the mirror of life, then the screen ought to hhow some, of the sidelights of our Great American Band Wagon too and 'Prohibition will occupy a conspicuous . place. There are plenty 'of dramatics In this rather "melo" variety—shooting, killing, drowning, but somehow, Chester Morris and Alison Loyd put the thing over In a rather realistic way. This Morris boy is of the Robert Montgomery type but he Is well cast In this particular role of the hijacker and the blond Loyd woman, plays her vampire part with such convincing sincerity that she 'lands' her man. An exceedingly . good character part Is contributed by one Fred Kohler. . tt THERE IS some beautiful photography In The Corsair—In fact, one moonlight shot. of; the. shimmering ocean, with light house and dark ships silhouettd against a mackerel sky Is one of the most artistic, things that the 'camera has given us for a long time. And so, hotwith standing the extremely improbable plot, (The Corsair appeared In Lib-'; erty magazine which probably ac-' counts for Its short- comings) this! Is an entertaining show, gives us j ome unusual sea photography and) ntroduces us to a new movie blond, n the latter subject, the house is ivided—one vote for and one gainst. We'll let you figure out 1 'ho cast the black-ball—now,' Isn't iat just like a woman. Is-combined ail' 1 thi-interest'ft travelogues with the Intolllfcent hum6r at a typical American; hete Is entertainment par excellence, Aside from the Ingenuity of the thing, which at times is almost baffling, is the, rare ability' to'indulge in humor at the expense of,others without bffense. This Is one of the most' difficult pieces of finesse known to; the human race. Douglas does it with ease and good grace. There Is just enough of it and never too much. TRANSITION from scene to sctne and from one country to an other'Is accomplished by the use of great maps, magic carp<rts and all the. hokum of the studio. You have no opportunity to become weary, as soon as one scene begins to lag, the energetic Fairbanks whisks you away to ahother, first by .Jumping, then by following a golf;ball across the Yellow Sea. The gags are good, almost without exception. Showing a caravan of camels, he slyly remarks, "These come in packages of twenty 'in pur country". A long line of shows''-statues is accompanied by,;these -significant words, "Here we'.•' have Congress In /session!'. Speaking of some ruins in a state of perfect preservation, he adds, "like the Republican party", .These and many others liven ,up the Interest in this great travel picture.

The following paragraph from th Garner Leader will interest friend of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Clark, foi mer Algonians' Mr. Clark .having for eight years following 1908 bee one of the publishers of the Ad vance and Mrs. Clark being we remembered here 'as. a Chapl daughter: "The Frank Clark horn will be the scene of a happy gathei Ing over the Christmas holidays when the sons, William, who. is student at the U. S. Naval academ at Annapolis, Md., and Harold,' student at the University of Mis souri, will be at home. This is Bill 1 first visit since entering school an will be one of much pleasure 'bot to himself and parents and his man Garner friends and admirers. A a student, in Garner high school h covered himself'with honors in foo ball, and this was also true l n hi freshman year, at the naval acad emy. Harold will be on.the edltorla board of the Missouri showme, hu mor publication for the presen school year, according to a recen announcement staff." of the comple T HE, TIP OFF is the picture which Manager Rice had sched- led for his free show several weeks go, but which, on being previewed eemed a poor bet for the many hildren who would be certain to vitness it. We think Manager Rice's judgment was exceltent; our nly question might be, "Why show he darned thing at all?" But then, hese pictures are bought sight un- ieen and what better place to t put t than Christmas; eve, when most sverybody is home with the family? At that, it isn't such a bad picture f you like gangsters, Eddie Qulllan ind all that sort of racket. We saw it after the Christmas eve fes- Ivities were over and the children were safe in their, downy cots—It was about as incongruous with our feelings as a snowball fight in July. SO WE AVILL leave 'Eddie and ;he :-est of the gangsters' to their :ate and talk about the short sui> jects which show the painstaking care that Mr. Rice says he has lavished on the Christmas week's pro- ram. The short complimentary reel in which the various dolls and toys come to life and sing and talk to us In the flesh, Is refreshing af ter the usual run of shorts. The Christmas message from the Call, with the singing of Silent Night,;is about as artistically gotten up a thing as we have seen for a long time. Even the voices are good. DO YOU KNOW who the champion crooner of these United States Is? AVe have always thought this light weight championship belonged to Rudy A'allee but we find that a gentleman by the name of Blng Crosby now wears the crown. And what a crooner he turns out to be. In I Surrender, Dear, a popular ditty of the day, he croons from the stage, from the radio, from the seat of a car and from any old place he happens to be. Yes, Blng is the croonlest crooner we have ever heard, if .that's anything to be proud of. At any rate his short subject Is well above par, which is something in these days of depression, low stock market, etc, W HICH BRINGS-US to'the place de resistence of the holiday week — Douglas Fairbanks in Around the World in Eighty Minutes, as fine a jnotlon, talking picture as has graced the silver screen since talkies swept the old ellents UNTU FURTHER NOTICE! , • Marigold Ileanty' SHoppc' Xo.
