This Hepburn woman, we fear, asted the sweet fruits of popularly and acclaim at too tender an age. After all there is no su'bsti- ;ute for maturity and experience. At 20 we often feel there is little we do not know. We marvel that there are men and women still studying at 60 and 60. At 30 we begin to sense our mental shortcomings and smile somewhat disdainfully at our own cocksuredness in the preceding decade. At 40 we are convinced that we have only made a beginning in wisdom. And at 50—well, we'll write about that half-century mark in a few years more. But Katherine Hepburn leaped to fame at an immature age. Her success in Little Woman put strange ideas into 'her dizzy little ihead. After completing Spitfire she departed for Broadway—cruel, ruthless, hrad-boiled Broadway—and appear- d in a production called The Lake, 'he show was a conspicuous fail- re, and the critics of the stage vere not as kind as the cinema udiences wtoom she had .pleased nd which had taken her into their )t LUc Kluo UL .fvi&uiltl. iliivi unv-iv. i . , .... eorge Gallarno, why doesn't he Yard m finding the real criminal. .-u-.i .._ »i._ mystery of the look into the Life of Our Lord, by session, accounts ifor a million.

After four futile attempts Kenneth 'Lyons, Algona, received the $25. The crowd always seems better satisfied if some "gore" in the shape of cold dollars is shed.

DONLO.VS DKFENSE OF T UK OLD AGE PENSION (Representative Donlon, of Ruthven, who was one of the chief instigators of the old age pension law, comes to its defense in a communication elsewhere on this page. Mr. Donlon denies that the bill was put over without due notice. Nobody has said that there was never anything in the papers about it, but it was not played up and it remains a fact that till the moment of passage the mass of readers had practically no knowledge of it. How many does Mr. Donlon think knew it imposed a brand new lifelong head tax on every man over 45 and every woman over 21? They are even now just finding it out, ••weeks after the law's passage. A great point is made of the "demand" for this law. Certainly there was a demand for it. All that is necessary in such cases is to propose a handout, and altruistic visionaries and prospective ibeucfidar- ies will make the welkin ring in its l>ehalf. Practical legislators know •this and are not moved. They know 'that people in the mass are inarticulate and must dumbly trust legislators not to add a straw to the burden of taxation they are already carrying. Mr. Donlon writes as if the only alternative to old age pensions is the poorhouse. This is not true. (Many people now receive what amount to pensions without ever jgoing near the poorhouse. In fact everyone in need is thus cared for, •as anyone can verify by reference Evelyn Venatole sets out to win the modest youth, which she accomplishes only by the crafty aid of 'Harum, who sells her a race horse on which he succeeds in getting the 'bank clerk to bet his en- ley out of his old barnyard rutsj tire sav ings, thus paving the'way and into a track that would lead to the higher and better things of life, but to no avail. If Dewel thinks he can do something in that line, let him don his gas mask, .his rubber hip iboots and a fish-brand slicker coat, load a horse syringe with disinfectant, and sail in. MEANWHIIjE E. K. Pittman, of the Northwood Anchor, was playing to the holy road of matrimony. The effervescent Evelyn wouldn't have a ghost of a show in t'he present century, but she seemed to 'bring home the bacon in her day, for she lands 'her man, which fulfills her ambition. Her .performance is somewhat inferior to her work in Cradle Song. David 'Harum is beautifully photographed, and the supporting cast there is always a convenient heart attack to take off the leering old villain, and a ibaby too, to bind the nefarious 'bargain. Sally Eilers and Ralph Morgan, assisted by Norman Poster, perform the ceremonies in a grim, determined manner which leaves little to the imagination and less to eye. Tire best and most exciting shot is a steeple chase, and the best line a toast which one of the minor characters drinks to himself. "Here's to meself," says he, "good men are scarce." This gem is almost worth the price of admission. Sandwiched 'between the features, thrown in for good measure, we presume, is the eighth episode of the Rin-Tin-Tin serial, an innocuous trium'p'ln of virtue over vice reminiscent of the old dime novel days of long ago.

There are times, dear readers, when the mind usually so capable of being lulled into insensibility by the soothing ministrations of the cinema simply balks, and thought, that illusive flowing quality, backs up and dams itself.
