Fuller, Wm- dom, Minn., were visitors, at Fred Newel's Sunday. many other flashes—as, for example, the episode wherein Fields unwittingly demonstrates his bullet-proof tires on a police car instead of his own, with disastrous results. Ardienne Ames, sightly brunette, is excellent as a Russian princess i who contributes no little charm to the plot—if this riot of fun may boast of a plot. The dialog is fast and furious. "We have good news for you," says a man to Fields' wife. "What, is my husband dead?" she exclaims! This feature, with five well assorted shorts, completed a delightful Sunday program at the Call. TF WE WERE totally "absent" at •*• the Call two weeks ago, we were certainly only "half there' last week. In the peaceful lassitude that follows a long auto trek, we dozed comfortably through most 01 was music by a mixed quartet, Irma Campbell, Mrs. R. C. Ball, William Schram, and Harley Larson. The Rev. Mr. Wood sang "My Task." Such a fine spirit prevailed that no one wanted to break away. A call came for Mr. Schram to sing "Little Gray Home in the West," and still the folks lingered, loath to leave. In the midst of it all was Mr. Muhleman, his face more radiant every minute. The basement of the church was filled to overflowing, and a number of the young folks ate on the church lawn. More important than the size of the crowd was the spirit in which the event took place. ^jthe short subjects and stayed on through one reel of Blood Money .he limit of our endurance. The usual mob was on hand for Bank Night, but our befuddled jrain failed to register reactions of the crowd.

BURNING, KNAWING PAINS IN STOMACH RELIEVED Neutralize irritating acids with Dr. Emil'a Adla Tablets. Preyent serious stomach trouble, eat what you want. Adla gives relief or your money back.—A. H. Borchardt, Druggist even the cinemas stir us not a whit. We will therefore spare our readers further flightsjn the realms of Fancy and close the book with the somewhat vulgar but significant phrase, a brain-child of the talkies, "Skip it!" '"THERE IS NO BASIS for critl- *• cism in such ultra-sophisticated cinemas as Riptide. You enjoy hat if you are a Shearer fan, or if fou are not particularly interested n plots, but you go away.with a )ad taste in your mouth if you are n a critical frame of mind. Riptide opens with our two cen- ral figures (Norma Shearer and Terbert Marshall) preparing separately for a fancy-dress ball, The iVorld of the Future. Whea they neet we hear a one and two-word onversation such as folks in the upper strata of our social order are upposed to indulge in. The one word verbal repartee ollows, and is particularly Jncom- irehensible without a key: "Pun?" Much". "Glad"? "Um-m-m." 'Sweet?" Instinct." The two- word battle is a bit more intelligi- ile, but just as inane: "Want to?" Why not?" "Shall I?" "So what?" Such ornate phrases as "Pretty awful!" roll off Norma's tongue vith an assurance disconcerting to H who demand a semblance of ianity even in the movies. This is one of those stories which ceep your mind jumping from one hurdle to another. BEFORE the wife has sinned, the husband .hrows her out; AFTER she has :ommitted an indiscretion, he takes ier back. And when you are be;inning to wonder just how far such absurdities are going to take .he unhappy couple, he (the husband—yes, it's Herbert) turns against her again—only to clasp her fervently to his bosom when a little child joins their hands in happy reunion. Robert Montgomery, the third point in-the domestic triangle, flits n and out of the discordant proceedings with his usual demeanor; talks glibly of happiness and the shortness of life—the moonlight, the stars, the soothing caresses of drink. Carefree, happy buoyant, tie is the antithesis of the routine, secure, dull state of matrimony as practiced by—shall we say?—too many moderns? Riptide, then, is flashy, glamorous, unreal, beautifully photographed, well acted by a trio of favorites who have a large and faithful following. To this trio, we may add the name of Mrs. Patrick Campbell, who contributes the cynical angle so necessary to pictures of this kind. TT HAS BEEN OUR privilege to A pre-view two new pictures shortly to find a place on the Call calendar. The first, As The Earth Turns, is the story of New England farm life, realistic, drab, sordid, but so artistically photographed that its many scenes of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter are superb, a delight to the eye. The second, Stand Up and Cheer, a new Fox musicale, is done with considerable gusto and introduces some breath-taking chorus and song numbers. It will not be shown before the first of May, and will be preceded by an elaborate publicity campaign—always a bad thing for any picture, because hopes are built up that cannot be realized. You'll enjoy Stand Up and Cheer, however, and we may safely recommend is as "just a good show," leaving the raving to the producers.

I believe the Lord himself enjoys a joke, otherwise He never would let those fellows at Des Moines saddle that 2 per cent sales tax on us. Or it may be that the Lord does not have anything to do with that bunch. The most I ever enjoyed a joke was when we first moved out on Yankee Ridge. The good wife was very much enthused about raising a lot of chickens. She set 30 hens. They come off with 415 chickens, but 397 of them were roosters. , When I was a boy about 12 years old I did old man Door's chores all fall and was to have for my pay the first colt his old gray nag had. The old gray horse turned out to be a gelding. I did not enjoy that joke so much. Later on I found the world Js full of jokes. Wholesalers for a year have been telling me to buy plenty, for goods are going up. I sure have the store loaded. The store is as full as it can hold, and as much more in the basement. It is no joke. Under present conditions it is gambling. To get from under part of it is the reason I am running a sale this week. The profits this week will be like the colt that the old gray gelding never had. Just so I make expenses this week and get from under the load I will be well pleased. The Storm Lake Shoe Stock is now all unpacked and will go into this sale. Every pair is Peters solid leather shoes and slippers. These will be sold at a big discount as I bought them at a bargain. This sale ends Saturday night, April 28th, at 10 o'clock.
