The depression has caused .much hardship, but it has brought some benefits. It has caused people to think, and, being forced to think, we have found new ways to overcome obstacles. I have learned that I can make more money selling $1500.00 worth of goods in a week at 10 per cent profit than I can sitting around trying to sell $500.00 a week at 35 per cent profit. These times people have to economize and they are looking for the store where they get the most for their money. A man and wife raising a little family is the most sacred institution in this world. Any store or organization that helps them to make their dollars go further is doing a good work and will surely get their trade. It is not a matter of making money in times like these,, it is a matter-of pulling through until times get better. I am sure that I have not made a dollar above expenses so far this year. We have sold a world of goods at very small margins, and by so doing have made life walk easier for a great many people. Times will get better. They always have, and then we can all make money. Every day there is a dray load of goods unloaded at our door. We buy 'em and we sell 'em—we make prices to suit the times. Just so we make expenses and can pay our bills. Not many people making money just now. I am sure the farmers are not. Why should I be carried to the skies On flowery beds of ease While others fight to win the prize And sail thru bloody seas. One man in this world is just as good as the other and when anyone begins to think he is better than the rest of us he is just all wet, for he is not. We are all just common clay put here on this little old earth to work out our destiny, to do the best we can and do all the good we can. Good to our home, to our children, to our neighbors, and so far at least consummate the divine purpose of our Creator. Jimmie Neville "The Shoe Man" Algona, la.

The Tuesday meeting was held at the Legion hall, Algona, for nine clubs in the South End, and all of them were represented.

Twenty-one leaders and club girls attended the meeting at Algona, and 24 the meeting next day at Bancroft. This was a. total of 45. The third lesson will be 'given May 5-6.

We don't throw humans into arenas of lions as they did in Nero's day. but the old Instinct hasn't one Iota changed in two thousand years; we all like to be shocked. Artistically and theatrically. Mr. Fredrlc March gives a splendid performance In the dual role of sweet and tender lover, Dr. Jekyll, and lustful, brutish Mr. Hyde. His re- an extremely mediocre story and plot, Von Sternberg has surrounded the glamorous Marlene with such a glint ot mystery, intrigue and local color as lifts this tempestuous melodrama from the ranks of ordinary talkies to a place among outstanding productions. Because after all, where genius is concerned must we inquire after a mere detail as plot? In Maupassant's Boule de . . suif, a homely story of a prostitute markable transitions from the one | (congldere(3 by man y critics his mas- to the other are especially well terplece) the great master has risen above mere plot and embellished his tale with a simplicity of style and ji realism which places It among the adapted for the screen and must be more realistic than, any "effect which could have been produced on the stage. But the frequent repetitions of change from man to brute and back again (four times) rather spoil the dramatic climaxes. The picture is much too long, and the simple Story written by Stevenson has been embellished with too many modern psychological trappings. However, for purposes of the talkies, It would be difficult to offer suggestions for Improving the picture. The shadowy, fog-dimmed atmosphere of London has been faithfully reproduced, and the settings are marvels of ghostly realism. Besides Mr. March, only Marian Hopkins, as Ivy, soiled London dove, plays a part worth mentioning. Her portrayal of horror when the beast, Hyde, stalks her like a wild animal stalks prey is outstanding. You won't forget the Wok. of terror in her eyes for a long, long time. Perhaps the cinema has lost something In emphasizing the tremendous difference in appearance of the two personalities, -because it could do so more cleverly than would be possible on the stage; perhaps it would heighten the dramatic •ffect to have the transition less grotesque. But after all, this is but trivial, Insignificant criticism. If vou must have your little "horror," we hope you didn't miss D;\ Jekyfl and Mr. Hyde, and . we sincerely :rust that you were completely und entirely shocked,. terrified, and wrecked. Because, be truthful, that's what you went for! classics of literature, In Shanghai Express, Von Sternberg and. camera man, Lee Oarmes have taken a commonplace .and tawdry story and given it an artistic background of intrinsic beauty. -In fact, several scenes have the delicacy of steel etchings. Witness the scene where engine boilers are be ing refueled and the black shadow of the stoker is silhouetted agalna a grayish sky; or the one where a relief train bearing a hostage 1 steaming up the track with a back ground of fleecy clouds and light and shadows playing hide-and-seek among the rails and the soldiers.

And, after all, isn't that about all that keeps most of us hanging to this ball of clay, with Its Hoods, droughts, wars, and depressions? Disorderly Conduct has an the ear marks of a tedious. sensational melodrama of the early '00 vintage; and perhaps that's what eventually happens to it, but not before it has ntertained and fascinated you for at least six reels. Then somo misguided director had a brain storm and shouted through his megaphone. 'Come on boys, let's have some shootin', and plenty of itr" "Bang! >ang! bang!" The studio sets are with the blood of many victims who fall before the unerring shots of Policeman Fay and a gang of racketeers. Spencer Tracy is a thoroughly ikeable young chap who opens the picture as a v conscientious, honest, lard-working' cop. Salty Eilers, deally cast as the spoiled child of a wealthy, corrupt, oooc'esging crook, Is caught speeding by the alert Tracy, but through political influence is released, much to the disgust of the cop. After being demoted Tracy goes the "easiest way," which in cop parlance ^is accepting history of the talkies is so rich i artistry, in sound effects, in mass ing of characters to give atmos phere. Why bother about plot, whe: we'have enough atmosphere to glv even the cold platitudes of Cliv Brook and the sinister villainies o Warner Oland a realistic note? Marlene Dietrich here plays a symphony of rhythm: her actions have the quiet coldness and reserve of an actress who knows her possibilities and has absolute faith in the genius of her director. She is a "coaster"—a "lady" of easy virtue, and her name is Shanghai Lily. Captain Harvey meets her on the Express, after having for five years tried to forget an affair he once had with her. The melodramatic events which transpire as the train is delayed through the cunning of Warner Oland, leader of the rebels, are of little consequence, because the intermittent tingle of the train bell, the incessant sound of the locomotive, and the constant rumble of he coaches give even the most fantastic events a strong flavor of probability. A well assorted cast of character actors and actresses was recruited by Director Sternberg to add a human touch. There is the philosophizing, gibbering missionary; aa fussy, loquacious old. woman with ' a pet dog; a rotund, American gambler; a German opium dealer; and an oriental trollop played by Anna May Wong. Shanghai Express is a "location" picture, popular today on stage and screen, as evidenced by the success of such productions as Grand Hotel, Union Depot, and Trans-Atlantic. The recent trouble in China adds interest to this picture, and the producers have not been asleep as concerns this angle of popularity. Paramount even went so far a few weeks ago as to urge exhibitors to believe that: "every; newspaper the world is a press bureau for Shanghai Express." At any rate the talkie sets a high standard for pictures, both as an example of the genius pf Josef Von Sternberg and of the glorious personality of the flaxen-haired Marlene. Wisely, we MBS. F. L.

Caught in a jam of dramatic killings and spectacular raids on speak-easles and joints, he finally repents and returns to his former high and lofty ideals. There is an earnestness abtut Disorderly Conduct which lifts it out of the rut of mediocricy and places it in the category of thoroughly capable pictures. Each and every actor seems bent on giving to this dramatic tale a touch of realism which makes it one of the surprise talkies of the month. The photography Is splendid and the direction good. Sally Eilers is especially conVinc- ng in the opening scenes, when she s arrested for reckless driving, and she gives to the subsequent action a dramatic suspense which keeps up a lively interest to the end. Little Dickie Moore, our most beloved child actor, brings gushes of salty tears from feminine eyes when he passes out of the picture near the end of reel No. 6. And there's El Brendel, Swedish nightmare, wisecracking in his own peculiar and completely tiresome way. •But Disorderly Conduct Is still a corking good show. Even the gangsters and racketeers are good. When one of the latter, a big, towering giant, reaches for his sun, another steps quietly over to him, and in a tone tinged with both sarcasm and humor remarks dryly, "Be a good boy or mamma will bury you so deep it will have to rain for weeks to get you wet," Quite a gem; not so? So we recommend this show to out-of-town readers, with reservations of course. /CHARLIE CHAN'S CHANCE, VJ starring the celestial-faced Warner Oland, is a corking good mystery story, with such well known actors as H. B. Warner, James Kirkwood, and Marian Nixon gracing the cast. Well staged and competently mounted in detail, this detective yarn ought to have a successful box-office appeal. Certainly it pleased the thln^, her legs play no part in, the appeal In this picture, both cameraman and director concentrating on beautiful shots of her wistful face framed in fur and feathers. Certainly no detail in staging this production has been overlooked, and it will be a long, long time before we another as completely satisfying picture as the Shanghai Express. 'TpO KIND SOULS sometimes con* cerned-with the cynicism of this caustic column of comment and crlt- Thursday and Friday; April 7 and 8 iclsm, may we call respectful attention to the important fact that this program has been given at least faint praise and that so-called words of condemnation have been sadly absent in this review, which ought to ge a boon to suffering humanity.
