Among the (Diamond Jubilee letters from old-time Algonians wriich were read at the Congregational church Sunday was one from Geo. R. orton, now an advertising advisor at Weston, Mass., as follows: Your request for something to* be read Into the records of this Seventy-fifth Anniversary, -projects memory back through many years during which "our" church activities were so important a part of life. It reaches even so far back as to include, mistily for the most part, the first church building. Perhaps It should Bain virtue In the fact that our house Included the log cabin raised for Father Taylor in the summer of 1S56, the fifth and the last log- house built in Algona. In the uncertain outlines of this picture are strangely mingled Impressions of intolerably long, hot summer services, "enjoyed" (after this lapse of time) in most uncomfortable seats; Band of Hope meetings of afternoons, and blue ribbons; Mr. Burnard's benign face adorned by the magnificent beard that rival- led that of Moses In the pictures, and 'by reason of which we attributed Mosalcal powers to him; and one particular Memorial Day when the Sunday School pupils, including one small boy in shining, moi-ning face and a new suit with a porticul- larly trying- stiff sailor collar, trudged behind the men of the G. A. R. to the exercises in far away Riverview. Memories of Old Days. With the building of the new church the outlines grow clearer. Sweet little girls and unwilling, bashful boys stumble to the.rostrum, a large letter hung about the neck, each letter indicative of some virtue the grinning audience was hesitantly implored to put into daily practice — even as you and I. Religious education, it then appeared, consisted of committing to reluctant memory, certain verses, and emitting more or less musical sounds through clenchd teeth, for the edification of assembled admirers — and critics. Amazing it must have be-jn that such noble sentiments should Issue from the mouths of some of us, with whose' daily lives most of those in the audience were thoroughly, and often regretfully familiar. Many of you who listen will experience a- ne\v the frightful suspense of the moment before it became apparent your turn was about to artive. We have suffered together. Influences Were Profound. How much it all menat to us, the years reveal. Who of us but realizes how profound the influence of that church life! Such a meeting of oUl dear friends as greets us aortjss the years! Just as was their custom after service when the wanderers returned ever less frequently, it is tilting that we, in turn, shouM honor them — who brought to u? the firm Faih of the Fathers. Surely they are very close to us as there "flash upon that inward eye." the little, white New England j meeting house filled with the fragrance of lilacs and peonies; the long march of the men in blue behind the flag proudly borne by the very tall man who strides ahead; the droning hum of the Sunday School classes as Summer calls from without; the sermons, relieved for some of us from tedium, by more or less open or furtive excursions into the pages of Sunday School library books; church suppers with tables piled high with most delectable dainties; many Christmas entertainments of varying sorts, but all ending happily in the distribution of highly- colored candies suspicioned by parents; cheerful visiting, in later years, after service; and the sweet, plaintive voice in the pew behind, aw it sting with the uncertain quaver of age, but not of faith, I know not where His islands raise Their fronded palms in air; I only know I cannot drift Beyond His love and care. MOVIES OF WORLD'S FAIR SHOWN HERE iRotarians saw moving pictures Monday of the world's fair taken recently by the 'Rev. W. G. Muhleman. Shown first were a few scenes of his old home and that of Mrs. Muhleman in eastern Iowa i and a few buildings at Northwestern university, Evanston, 111., Where Mr. Muhleman attended college. 'The pictures of the fair were of great interest, especially to Rotarians who had not been there. They were mostly what could be taken outside in daylight. There was not enough light in many of the buildings for pictures. Particularly of interest were scenes from the top of the Skyride and the Observation Tower, also of the Wings .of a Century, a pageant showing progress in transportation in the last 100 j years. i Following the world's fair pictures a reel taken at the Okobojis which showed game wardens seining fish from the lakes was shown. j Large nets pulled by motors brought in the fish, and the waters inside the nets were alive with j small fish which the fish and game | commission was having taken to i other lakes for stocking purposes. I Also in this reel were pictures I taken to show Camp Poster activi- ities. Mr. Muhleman has shown all the pictures at many church activities in the Algona district recently.

In Bombshell crooning—(but wait—that might we have a cross-section of Hollywood portrayed with grim realism by a team of comedy artists so diametrically opposed to each other that the net result is positively devastating. If you were looking for a partner for the sleek, glamorous (this word is almost ready for the verbal ash-can) sensuous Jean Harlow, you certainly wouldn't think of "breezy, wise-cracking Lee Tracy. No, indeed! Yet this pair literally put on some of the most cyclonic humor that our silver screen has ever witnessed. ^ 'Bombshell is a composite of episodes which have harassed movie stars in the last, itewv hectic years. Dishonest secretaries,' adopted 7 babies, lecherous parents, lying press agents—these are but a few of the many angles .of a movie star's life here portrayed with sweeping tduches of humor and pathos. Lola Burns (Jean Harlow). is a temperamental star whose press agent (Lee Tracy) keeps her name in the headlines with a series of scandals, shady episodes, and other publicity. Appealing to her pride and dignity, Tracy manages to keep the popularity pot boiling most of the time. The ba'by adoption episode is one of the most hilarious comedy sequences ever shown in a movie. It begins in a sentimental mood and ends with a crash of broken, furniture in one of the most smashing climaxes of the year. The frame- up to get the star back to work by trapping her in a 'fake love affair with a supposed (Boston blueblood is a gem o£ humor. Says the psuedo-lover ,to Jean, on the moonlit desert, "Your hair is like a field of silver daisies—I'd like to run barefoot through your -'hair!" Meanwhile Lola sighs raptuously, and Tracy lifts his eyebrows from, near-by cover. IFrequent references are made to other 'stars and other pictures. Says Jean, "Not even Norma Shearer'or Helen Hayes, in their best pictures, were ever spoken to like this." One catch-line characterizes both fact and the screen; Jean Harlow: "I can't do it, on account of—I'm going away!" Supporting this pair of stars, Jean and Lee, is a cast of dutstand- ing favorites. Frank Morgan, as inebriated father, contributes one Of "his most colorful roles, while Ted Healy, newcomer to the screen, crashes through with a fine piece of incidental work as brother. The secretary, deftly played toy Una Merkel, is another excellent minor character. Ir are is ribald, raw, raucous humor of the belly-laugh variety — a welcome change from the too serious sex angle. Hats off to Jean pass another amendment against *.&UU1I11I£—nuU'l WdlV Ulal llllgllli make it popular, which' would' be tragedy! Too Much Harmony features, besides the mushy-mouthed Bing, a notable cast of favorites, Gallagher, Jack Oakie, Skeetg Harry Oren, Judith Allen, and iLilyian Tashman. For the love of Mike, Lilyan, where did you get that coiffure, < headdress, or whatever you call it? A more atrocious makeup it has seldom been our misfortune to see. 'And Judith Allen, while a comely little miss with a million dollar figure, was never meant .to waste ^her.- otherwise. pul- ' . . . - chritudinous talents singing love' songs. The dance numbers" might" be called, in the vulgar parlance of the day, plenty "hot" There is a Harlem Moon number in which the chorines wiggle their heads off— now what do YOU think?— and a Bucking the Wind ensemble which even shows the poor gals losing their pants. (After all, Sally Rand DID start something). This scene is censored, so don't pay your 36c and 'blame us if you are disappoint. The most tuneful . melody is Thanks (for unforgetalble nights) which has a lilting quality. A capacity crowd gave it a big hand, a la Texas Guinan, so maybe we are wrong about it.

En route he got turned around in directions and landed in Minnesota, where he found a settlement that had not been visited by a preacher for; some time, and he stayed long enough to (form a society before continuing to Dubuque. Zeal Characterized Pioneers. We dp not seem to -have that zeal of spirit today, Mr. Ingham said, though we point to progress continually. In the past 70 years Iowa has accumulated more in material advantages than any other similar group of people has ever done in all history. "But have -we," Mr. Ingham asked, "improved on the character or vigor of these pioneers? Have we developed a higher type of men and women? We who knew them are a little skeptical." In the same vein Mr, Ungham gave other exam.ples of the devoted zeal of the early pioneers, who labored for their cause with' an ear- jnestness that we know nothing of. ' "And is this world worth having without such zeal somewhere," Mr. DERKEljEY SQUARE is of that! *-* wistful, eerie fabric from which romantic dreams are woven. It takes us 'far .back into the 18th century, to the era of knickers and crinoline skirts, to the age of chivalry and courtesies, to the time when all love affairs were cloaked in the restrained chastity so dear to the hearts of oldtime Roman- tisists. Berkeley Square will probably find its way into every list of the ten best movies of 1933, and justly so. Ably directed ,by Frank Lloyd (Cavalcade), and superbly acted by Leslie 'Howard % (who played the role on ,the stage) and Heather An- Did for America. Mr. Ingham referred to the Pilgrim Fathers, who in their desire to have every man able to read the iBible and make peace with God himself, established compulsory schools, which have grown to be characteristic of America. "We have this great area in our United States, larger than the area of western Europe, all under one civil government because of the zeal of our people for that-cause." Mr. Ingham pointed out that in any other such area in the world, war would have developed over the respective claims of California and i.uic untile oiage; auu neainer An- °i^=<-"»c uiaims 01 (jautornia and gel, this cameo .of romantic lore JV'izona to the- Boulder dam proj- stands out sharp and clear above 1 ect, for example; yet the differejc- the average run of talkies. es between the states will be set- A bit depressing at times, a trifle j tle d peacefully, as so many other bewildering at others, the story is i inter-state matters have been, by simple enough to hold interest and. mere references to the courts.

Whittemore Youth Is Bank Receiver Graettinger's only bank, the First National, which was closed under President Roosevelt's proclamation of March 4, and since reopening a few weeks later had been operated by a conservator, was closed for ! good last week Tuesday, when Ed-' mund Carmody, assistant cashier of * the Cylinder State bank and son of, Thos.

Fred Oelgel, attended the funeral of the former's brother, William Mullica, Orton- T iHe, Minn., two weeks ago today, has received a copy of the Ortonville Independent giving an ofoitu* ary. Mr. Mullica, who was once a well known Algonian, died suddenly Monday, October 16, of a heart attack. He had <for some time been afflicted with heart trouble. He was in his 67th year. fflorn June 27, 1867, at Fajrbury, 111., Mr. iMullica grew up in Greene county,-Iowa,, northwest of Des Moines, the family having moved there while he was a child. Later he came;'to.Algona,and operated a foundry and machine shop here. : Jn 1892 Mr. Mullica was married to Mrs. H/ackman's sister-in-law, Sophronia Habkman. The same year Mr. Mullica demonstrated the first American-made threshing machine ever seen in Esenmark. This demonstration attracted international interest in EuTope. In 1901 the Mullicas moved to OrtonviHe. which has ever since been the family home. Mr. iMullica founded a foundry and machine shop there which is now one of Ortonville's oldest business establishments. 'He once served as president of the OrtonviHe board of public works. He was an Odd Fellow and rose to the rank of major in the state Canton. Mrs. Mullica and two children survive: John M. Mullica, Detroit, and Mrs. Myrtle Ostlind, Salem, Ore.
