Wesley Wins Twice More, 'THESE THIRTY YEARS' TO BE GIFT BY KENT Four Shows to Be Given Afternoon and Evening. "These Thirty Years," a new alking picture produced by the 'ord (Motor company, is to foe >hown at the Call theater Wednesday afternoon and evening. Complimentary tickets are being dis- iributed by Kent Motor Co., under whose auspices the local showings are being held. The story of "These Thirty Years" begins 30 years ago in the ;own of Brookfield. Dave Haines and his aged mother see their farm and everything they own put on he auction .block to satisfy a jreedy mortgage holder. During toe auction, however, Dave becomes nspired by a "ihorseless carriage seen tearing down a rutted coun- ry road at the neck-breakin' speed of 20 miles per hour." He sees a great future in automobiles and wants Jed Travers, local livery stable owner, to go into (business with him. Jed withholds his de- lision until 'Dave proves what his 'carriage" can do in a cross-coun- .ry race with a ihorse. It's a Real Story. Success favors Dave. He wins ;he race—also the hand of Mary Larcombe. They have a son, Bob, vho becomes a problem in later ife for he favors playing to work- ng, and spends his dad's money gambling on the stock market. The "crash" of 1929 catches Bob. He loses everything—including his girl, Ann Bailey, who has been disgusted with, him for some time. Jed, the partner of Dave, sticks by 3ob, saves his life on one occasion, md finally inspires him to become ihe man Ibis dad, and Ann, would ike him to be. Cast Includes Artists.

Bonar gave a short talk before the Kiwanis club last Thursday on the situation between Japan and Russia which! many diplomats believe is leading to war. Japan's conquest of Manchuria and the setting up of a puppet empire under Japanese control is a direct threat to Soviet Siberia. Russia is not disposed to let the Japanese slice off. a part of Siberia which lies just north of Manchuria, and is some of the most fertile land of the world. Russia, too, is alarmed by the proximity of Japanese troops to the trans-.siberian railroad, Moscow's only connection with Port Arthur and other Siberian points, Russians Could Bomb Japs. Consequently every move by Japan is watched by Russia, and the Japanese, driven to the necessity of finding new land for surplus population, is looking with covetous eyes at southern Siberia. Japan is well armed, but the Soviets have one of the best trained, largest, and most patriotic armies > in (Europe. Russia has been feverishly building great bombing planes. .Strategy, if war breaks, will be for Japan to strike at the railroad and cut the Pacific coast of£ from the rest of Russia. The Soviets, it is believed, would immediately launch a plane attack on Japanese cities, Tokio being only six hours from Port Arthur. Incendiary bombs could reduce that city to ashes, for its bamboo outer quar- Class B Tournament Scores. FIRST [ROUND Wesley 88, Lu Verne 19. Bancroft 31, Lakota 26.

Meanwhile Russia is rapidly pushing completion of a double track on the railway. This will permit rapid movement of troops from •Russia, and with superiority in numbers would probably spell the doom of Japan. Following his talk, Mr. Bonar called on Adrian Burmeister, wha gave a talk on his work as manual training instructor in high school. Manual training, he said, is now only one branch of the industrial arts, and woodworking and mechanical drawing are the branches taught here. W. G. McCullough was introduced as a new member of the club. » Ford Auto Show Next Wednesday The Kent Motor Co. is holding a Ford automobile show in connection wibh the showing of "These Thirty Years" Wednesday afternoon and evening.
