This PLAY REVEALS NEGRO NOTION OF THE DEITY Al gona ; Pastor Tells of Impressions of Green Pastures. , The Rev. Fred J. Clark, who recently 'attended the play .Green Pastures at Des Moines, reviewed if before the Klwanls club last Thursday. The talk was preceded by two selections by Irene Moore, me'zzo- soprano, accompanied Iby Celeste Campbell at the piano. Both are from Eugene, Ore., and have 'been Studying music under Mrs. Clark. Dr. C. H. Cretzmeyer, who Introduced the Rev. Mr. Clark, was a 'surprise feature of the program, using a clrcua style of ballyhoo in his remarks. Green Pastures, played by a Negro cast, has. been one of the sensations of the show world, and in its way has also been something of a revelation-in-the world of .religion, the Rev. Mr. Clark said.' It portrays the actual conception of Heaven held by the low-cast Negro, who translates the Bible and its revela tions into personal " experiences which though crude, .have deep re llglous feeling.

The real grip of ..the :play comes its startlingly sudden changes from the ridiculous to the sublime. These changes bring forth dramatic and moving action which grip the audience even before It is aWare that the change has been made. Adam (a Negro Adam) goes wrong, and Cain kills Abel. The discovery by De Lawd of the murder of Abel is one of the most gripping moments of any play, the Bev. Mr. Clark said. Cain to made up to represent half man, half beast, ., and the sending forth of Cain by De Lawd to live in a far country is a dramatic triumph. • • , ' There is much humor: in the play. For instance, when Noah to building the Ark, under supervision of De Lawd, the- pn^ooklng- >-crowd jeers and.mocks Noah with a crude • hu'mor: >: De" Lawd'tells- y?oah ,tcr'nut While hundreds of relatives friends were in attendance at service, the. candidate heard words spoken which ushered record in four years club'work, health champion In Kos- I runner-up in a ' contest, Last year ah* wrote *" for a local cluo'f »«, which won third at Miss two of each kind of animal in the Ark, specifically, including snakes. Then Noah, worried, says he should have two kegs of liquor as a snakebite remedy, but De Lawd Insists that one to plenty. From Fan to Trageijr, The depiction of .the trial of Moses before Pharoah is another of the sudden surprises from fun to tragedy.

Clapeaddle and • Maurice Bartholomew are trying .to determine the. identity of a man who •posed as game warden and fired a 45 revolver at them Sunday when they, were on the-river in the Clapsaddle boat. The shot was fired .following a command from the supposed game warden to stop. Clapsaddle, operating the boat, sitting with his back to the bank where th'e' man stood, looked around and saw him waving, but thought nothing of it, because all along the river other people had waved or shouted. ' Bullet Barely Misses Boat. The fellow finally made it understood that he wanted the.boat halted, so Clapsaddle looked for a place to land sheltered from the current, which was rapid in the center of the river; but the man evidently believed .the, men in ,tlje boat running away, and so fired. The bullet'mis- sed the bow of the boat by inches and threw up a geyser of water. The engine had by then been idled down, and the boat was neari'ng a curve in the river where it could land safely. The shooting infuriated the pair in the boat. Clapsaddle, fearing that another shpt- might be fired, An $80,000 postoffice building for Algona is included in a public building project to relieve unemployment in a bill to be introduced by Senator Smith \\'.

Clapsaddle and Bartholomew saw 'him waiting, and so headed into a'bank at-a quiet point. On landing they started up the bank to demand an explanation of the shooting. Wardens Refuse to Parley. . Apparently there were three wardens at the bridge-; -but—after---'the pair in the boat had 'reached the ; top of the bank and were proceeding ,to-, wards the bridge .all three got' into a car and drove away; .."•'' •'. . . The boat was equipped with a Johnson portable engine of the kind sold by Mr. Clapsaddle, and he and Mr. Bartholomew were making a test run from the bridges north of town to the dam at Humboldt. When the wardens failed to wait for them they continued:their trip without further, molestation. .. The.time for the run was seven and a half hours,' but they stopped a half hour or so for dinner, which left the net time under seven hours.
