Viola Rike, only daughter of Mr. mnd Mrs. Edward Hike, came from *he State college, Ames, for the •^Thanksgiving vacation with her pur- the contestants were in the 2733rd hour of this grueling battle, which has been in progress since August 1. Night after night thousands of curious spectators have trekked to the state fair grounds to watch the; show and applaud from comfortable seats the hapless actors who have racked bodies in the effort to win a paltry purse. As we sat in the huge auditorium and watched the dubious proceedings, the mind reverted instinctively to the old Roman days, when sports of this kind would have been a boon to such barbarians as Nero. We almost expected a trap door to open at any moment and let a huge lion jump out! And again we ask the question— which our readers have heard various ant sundry times before—how far has the human race progressed in the last 2,000 years The only difference in the martyrdom of those dark days and our enlightened age is, nowadays the action is voluntary, whereas in the Dark Ages the victims had nothing to say about it. But the next question is, does it prove our intelligence to elect such a course? But then, WE attended—who are WE to judge others? TN HOOPLA, Clara Bow appeals 1 to the lure of the flesh. She doffs her apparel with ease, abandon, and little restraint, and lets you see the attributes upon which she supposedly earned her reputation as the "it" girl. But Clara has gone in for curves since her last screen appearance, and Hoopla provides her with every opportunity for showing them. Between disrobing two or three times—once, completely, but discreetly behind a clump of convenient bushes—and putting on a torchy hula dance, there isn't an atom of excuse for presenting this picture. However, since there are customers who frankly and unashamedly go in for that sort of day , chronicle the fact that she gives suckers their money's worth. not without a certain tawdry charm baby expression which sets men ga-ga. We can't blame the bewildered Dick 'Cromwell for being slightly flabbergasted when Clara leads him to a shady dell, beside a babbling brook, and calmly disrobes to the tune of the twittering birds. Even in these sophisticated days of nudist camps and bathing in the altogether, proceedings of this kind are a trifle unusual. Yet after viewing sacrificing mothers for "reel without end" it is refreshing to see a father fixation. In Hoopla we have the spectacle of pater attempting to bring up son in the approved modern fashion, in spite of the fact that he (the father) is manager of a carnival, and slightly "irregular" himself. Clara vamps the young man first, to win a bet, later falls in love with him, finally marries him to prove to the old man that she can make more out of him than he can. Which seems to prove that you can't beat a woman at her own game. There is only one thing to say A COMBINATION of circumstanc- •** es prevented oiir seeing Broadway Through a Key-Hole on real "gal"—the one woman who could call a man a "sucker" and get away with it. Also, you will recall, she coined the phrase, naw 'Give the little girl a great, big hand." Broadway Through a Key-Hole is notable also because it resulted in a fistic encounter between Al Jolson and Walter Winchell (who wrote the story), in a Hollywood Cafe. Al claimed that Walter cast reflections on his, wife ORuby Keeled) in writing the script. Wherefore Jo I son sought to give vent to injured feelings by engaging the author in a prize-fighting exhibition. As we remember the incident, Al won the victory and Walter took the count. But it doesn't matter much. Broadway Through a Key->Hole .should have been ideal holiday entertainment, and we trust that Manager Rice enjoyed a profitable and pleasant Thanksgiving without the services of his severest critic. P. S^-We did finally see Broad* way Through a Key-Hole, after a rather strenuous Thanksgiving day, and we are a little sorry because the once-glamorous Texas appeared to such a disadvantage. The gay, light-hearted night-club hostess plainly showed her advancing years. There were deep wrinkles in her face which the cruel camera brought out with devastating clearness. And she made only one wise-crack reminiscent of her glorious past When her rival laughed vulgarly and showed teeth conspicuously, Texas said dryly, "What you doin', girlie — broadcasting the Old Gold hour over your bridgeworkr And Walter did not improve himself in our estimation. Key-hole pecking 1 is low sport any way you look at it. '"PHE SUPERB sound recording at •*• the Call provided a mellow background for Noel Coward's romantic musical play, Bitter Sweet, a delightful foreign production expertly played by a capable English cast. This Coward is one of our most promising young playwrights, already having scored many stage successes, both with and without musical accompaniment, during a brief but meteoric career. The lilting theme melody of Bitter Sweet is familiar to almost everybody, and is faultlessly presented by orchestra and in vocalization. Bitter Sweet is a "flashback" similar to Berkeley Square.

Reidel, and the latter couple's 3-year-old daughter, all of Fenton, in the Thompson car, collided Saturday evening at a point 4% miles east of Whittemore. The Kuecker car is a «-cy.linder Chevrolet coach belonging to Erwin's father, Henry Kuecker, Whittemore, who carries liability insurance. Erwin was driving. The Thompson car, a Chevrolet coupe, was driven by Mr. Thompson. Both cars were almost completely wrecked, though .the only glass in the Kuecker car. broken was the windshield. ;Mist and a heavy fog are blamed vfor • the - accident. • The Kuecker car was pulled to an Algona garage, the front end stove in. The Thompson car was pulled to the Carl Seip farm. The occupants of 'both cars were taken to the Kossuth hospital. All were more or less hurt. Mr. Kuecker's chest was bruised, probably by the steering wheel. Everett and Milford Hedlund were bruised, and Mrs. Hedlund had a cord in her left leg torn. Mrs. Kuecker was brought to Henry Kuecker's Monday; .the others were released from the hospital Saturday evening. Mrs. Kuecker also suffered a •gash-above the left eye and below and to one side of the right eye. Stitches were required to close the wounds. She also suffered scratches and bruises. I.t is thought she hit fche windshield. In the Thompson car the occupants were bruised, and Mrs. Reidel suffered a gash on the top of her head when she was thrown against the mirror above the windshield. » — FARMER NEAR LONE ROCK DIES AFTER 7-D_AY_ ILLNESS Good Hope, Dec. 5 — Kenneth Neil Marlow, born December 14, 1901, died at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lemuel Marlow, last week Wednesday, after an illness of seven days.

For all advance advertising stresses the fact that Clara is back on a sex-appeal basis. You can like it or leave it, for at least you haven't been misled be the more poignant. Bitter Sweet, then, is as delicate as a fragile flower; as clear as a dew-drop, and as wistful as the fragrant scent of lavender. -It belongs to another age, an age immortalized by the love sonnets of the Victorian poets. It carries us far back into the misty realms of the Past, when Romanticism ruled the world and the harpsichord filled the place of the modern saxophone. Love in those now forgotten days, while none the less ardent, was perhaps a little more restrained, a little more refined, certainly a great deal more gesticulative. Noel Coward brings his Bitter Sweet back to the present day by jazzing up the theme song in the final scene, a neat transition from the past to today. But comment in the foyer of the Call Friday night indicated that Bitter Sweet had not registered heavily from a customer standpoint. Thus two of our most outstanding screen productions of the year, Berkeley Square and Bitter Sweet, are not boxoffice successes; which opens up a fertile field of speculation though we will accommodatingly spare our dear readers further comment. __ — -„ .ias a recovery j, IV ,gram of its own. Recently the town's Merchants association undertook a movement to secure a bank, a drygoods store, a moving picture theater, and a nightwatch. Victor "Leland, Swea City, has agreed to operate the theater, the business men having agreed to lelp support the enterprise by contracting for a year of screen advertising. Herbert Winter, druggist who is retiring because of poor wealth, will be nightwatch. believing that the outdoor work will help him. Plans for the bank and the store are in progress.

CUTLER TO SPEAK HERE; TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR IN '34 A year ago last spring, when everybody still thought a democratic nomination for a state office would be merely honorary, one Francis O. Cutler, of Boone, assistant statehouse custodian, announced candidacy for the nomination for lieutenant governor. Mr. Cutler was nominated, receiving some 60 .per cent of the vote. But about that time it began to be apparent that there might be a state as well as national landslide, and the democratic higher- ups, began work on Cutler to decline the nomination and let a stronger candidate be named. Cutler fell in with the .pressure, and Nets O. Kraschel was substituted. 'Later Cutler was removed from his statehouse job, and now he has announced his candidacy for governor. Mis literature says he will (head a progressive democratic-republican farmer - labor - veterans coalition within the democratic party to take over the machinery of the democratic party next June and "clean house." •Mr. Cutler has announced a state-wide speaking tour beginning next Tuesday, and he plans to speak here Wednesday at 1:30 p. m. eleven iy s ~ • make an allJ nounced in & a i Science Monitor. .In this team Clark fullback, and in I concerning the team said: "William c.
