ftLCHRIST TO BE OPPOSED BY TWO FOR CONCRESS Congressman F. C. Gllchrlst, of l*urens, though scarcely warmed 'In his official seat, will be opposed for the republican nomination In June by Hjalmer P. Sandberg, of SV>rt Dodge. Mr. Sandberg is superintendent of m new Lutharan hospital at Fort 3)odge. So far as known here, he 3ms not been in politics before and Jias no political acquaintance of *Onsequence in the district. Last •Week Wednesday's Fort Dodge Messenger said he had given out no platform and quoted him as follows: J 'I have no statement to make to<Jay, though I will make a statement Jater. . i have been studying my platform for a number of weeks, «nd will have what may be described as several unique planks to offer the voters of the eighth district." Kossuth political observers have siever heard of Mr. Sandberg before «nd do not believe that he will cut Tnuch of a figure at the primary •election. It is generally taken for 'granted that Mr. Gilchrlst will be •accorded renomination. Believing this is "a democratic ^rear," J. S. Deneen, Emmetsburg, •*as tossed his hat into the ring for the democratic nomination. With his father and two brothers, he is en- tgaged in the produce business. He was born and reared at Emmets- »urg and served 16 months in TVance during the World war. After "tils return he was for a time a patent in a government hospital at Houston, Tex. This was formerly the tenth Iowa congressional district, known as the Big Tenth but is now the eighth district, the state having been redis- itrlcted by the last legislature because of a reduction in the number ••of representatives from 11 to nine. The district is exactly the same as before, with 14 counties, as follows: 32mmet, Kossuth, Hancock, Winne- ftago, Palo Alto, Pocahontas, Hum- ilboldt. Hamilton, Webster, Calhoun, Crawford, Carroll, Greene, and Boone. Though elected in 1930, Mr. Gil- Christ did not take his seat till congress convened last December. He served in the legislature as senator two terms and was one of the senate's leaders. J, W, JARNAGIN, NEWSPAPER FEATURE WRITER, PASSES J.

Good boy, Richard. You and I like our westerns! Here's the review: "I went to the show .'Sooky' fueling say. This show was about two boys who were good friends, but It made me come home very sad.

[ F YOU ARE a regular reader of 'this column'and have formed the excellent habit of checking up your own judgment with that of this "unerring" critic, we shall have to disappoint you this week. We journeyed to the 'big city last week in quest of new spring coats and dresses, but while there took occasion to slip away to some of'the palaces of amusement, and a few of our observations might be of Interest. We looked first at movie offerings In the largest Chicago theaters, charging BOc to 75c admission, including a little organ music and a doubtful act of vaudeville. At The Chicago, we saw Tomorrow and Tomorrow with Ruth Chatterton and Paul Lukas, to be shown at the Call February 28-29. This was the only talkie we saw, and we saw only the last few reels, which led us to believe that it is the best Chatterton offering In a long time. At McVicker's,. Emma, with Marie Dressier, scheduled for the Call February 18-19, said by critics to be the best thing this talented character actress has done was seen, and at the United Artists, outstanding loop movie palace, we attended Mata Hari, shown here this, current week. And that's about the line-up. Time was when the latest movie releases were not shown in the local playhouse for weeks or months, but that was a long while ago. Now we get them hot off the griddle—fairly sizzling. And that Isn't all: there isn't a theater in Chicago offering sound comparable to that of the Call. The city movie nouses are huge, barnlike structures, originally built to seat vast audiences of silent-movie fans and entirely inadequate to throw voices into the auditorium with the gradations' of the human throat. [ N THE CURRENT Ziegfield Follies we saw the original brush- selling sketch, with Harry Richman, presented at the Call as a short subject a few weeks ago. This gave us the opportunity to compare the stage and the screen as mediums of entertainment and threw light on a current subject of controversy—will the talkies ever replace the legitimate? Our answer, after viewing the same thing both ways, is emphatically "No". There is something about seeing flesh and blood actors on the stage, an intimacy, which the silver screen can never catch. From an aesthetic standpoint, from the angle of beauty, the comparison is extremely odious. Under the soft,' seductive stage lighting, with Joseph Urban scenery, the brush-selling skit is a really clever -bit of satire, but on the screen it almost fails to register. The talkies are a , god-send to smaller communities, for they give an opportunity to see the newest and best pieces of dramatic art as well as the most talented actors and actresses. But to compare screen with stage Is futile. The one thing the movies do is reduce the number of patrons attending $3 and $4 shows, because at 40c and 50c eight or ten more performances may be attended. The real point is, would you rather see one Grand Hotel on the stage or ten Union Depots on the screen? We are inclined to cast our vote for the stage, with this reservation—that the movies are available here and the stage is not. Just what we would do in a city like Chicago, if we lived there, is a question. Grand Hotel, one of the season's most popular plays in both New York and Chicago, Is being made into a talkie at this moment, and we may have occasion to comment on it later, so for the present we will let it rest. distinguishing the Fren'ch from the Germans, Inexcusable In view of the wealth of material in Hollywood In much less" pretentious talkies. In a word, then, Mata Harl is a keen disappointment to Greta Garbo fans, not because she falls to show her genius but because so little opportunity te given her to 'bring out these qualities. The critics have made disparaging references to her rather sensuous dance in the open- Ing sequences. Looked at In the proper light, certainly In the light of actual history, this Is the keynote to her character: she was the embodiment of the modern vampire, or siren, just as Cleopatra and Salome were In ages long ago. It is just unfortunate that Mata Harl and Dishonored should have appeared within 'the space of a year, starring actresses who resemble each other as closely as Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. Comparisons are odious, so the saying goes, and In this Instance the odium is attached to Mata Harl and Greta Garbo. • EX-HEBRON WOMAN WRITES FROM AMES Union Twp., Feb. 9—Mrs. Philip E.

She is in the accounting department at Des Moines and gets home every week. Charles, younger son, has two more years in high school. Mrs. Damon is chairman of the division of safety, Iowa Federation of Women's clubs. She says: "As I do, not like to sit around the house' and think how empty it is, I am working as hard as I can on this safety work. The' clubs can help a lot to make people realize that only safe drivers can make safe roads." W E THOROUGHLY ENJOY reviewing talkies like Mata Hari, because they are controversial. We promised readers a • comparison of Mata Harl and Dishonored^ a few weeks ago and here It is.. We deem it a most unfortunate circumstance that the producers have.seen fit to give the talented Greta Garbo a vehicle which, through no fault of hers, is Infinitely inferior in both cast and direction to that in which her nearest -rival (at least, Marlene Dietrich, by reason of her appearance and general characteristics, has been placed in this position) made her initial American appearance on •the screen. Mata Hari is an uninspired piece of military hokum, replete wth miscast actors and without even a glimmer of the genius of Von Sternberg, master director of Dishonored. 'The glamorous Greta shows plainly the lack of subtle direction. Her gowns are entirely out of keeping with her parti and her appearance in glittering, bespangled tights at an evening function when an appropriate gown would have sufficed is almost ridiculous. The closing moments arc in strange and cold contrast to the tragic sacrifice which Marlene makes in Dishonored. Lionel Barrymore, to us, is the one outstanding character as a Russian general. The rest are all badly miscast. The handsome Ramon Navarro seems far too youthful, and his role lacks depth, In pitiful contrast, again, to the masterful performance which Victor McLaglen turns in as the lover of Dietrich. Lewis Stone, as the German "power" behind the spy system, is grotesque with,his goatee an,d assumed Teuton mannerisms, and he fails completely to register. Even minor roles are in thoroughly incapable hands; also there is difficulty in 1 Other Union News. Mrs. Mary Hofius, Lone Rock, entertained the Busy Bee club Friday, with most of the members present, program: roll call, jokes; reading, Mrs. Hilda Gross.

'9—Mr. and Mrs. Ben Farrow had an automobile accident Saturday afternoon. They were driving across railroad tracks in the, north end of town at a point Where -box cars on a side track obstructed the view. Children were at play near by, and Mr. Farrow, who was watching-them to see that he did not run into them, at first did not see a train coming. On seeing It he set the brakes hard, which caused the car'to swing sideways, and hit the train. The car was badly damaged, but aside from a severe shakeup and a few bruises Mr. and Mrs, Farrow were not injured. The streets are Icy and sudden stops are dangerous.
