C. 3 COURAGEOUS— lire la difficult to get h into. There are so ctlng emotions, such confusion of fact and any threads of plot, lue array of acting tal- s almost impossible to >f all non-essentials, simply the plight of a which finds solace In constant change and everlasting revolt against existing conditions. "We are the kind of men," says Claude Rains in substance, "who bring only unhapplness to those with whom we come in contact." .Indeed, there are such, and, strangely enough, they, not those who are so-called bulwarks of society and civilization, are the In- reared four daughters teresting individuals. sband deserted her for At another point Mr. Rains has hen he suddenly turns this to say— after Garfleld has ac- find his wife ready to .cused him of lying— "Nothing is , and his daughters duller than the truth, the whole themselves groomed ay. nds of a less capable Claude Rains as loug- , this character might lywire; but Mr. Rains eezes sympathy and truth and nothing but the truth!" iBut Mr. Rains demonstrates the real Art of Lying by using It to (bring joy and happiness to those .benefitted by his untruths. Well, what shall we make of all fhfiSP liifinnatstaiir>lpa? Tha nlnf la about him.' Stranger to all, he Is nevertheless a more understanding .being than those who have lived for 20 years closely associated with one; another. . Fay Balnter Is at her :best, and just to make sure that the cast was well nigh perfect, lo and behold, there Is grand old May Robson in a role just fitted for her Versatile talents. She Is merely the old housekeeper in Daughters Courageous, but you may be sure that she's a darned good one. Yes, here's a picture with universal appeal. But of course my remarks are colored by my own philosophy. You probably liked the show for an entirely different reason. Yet this, I believa, Is the secret of all great Art: that we see or read or hear only by means of our own personal judgments and convictions.' WTHERING HEIGHTS— It Is a credit to the modern screen .writers, Ben Hecht and McArthur, that they took an old fash- .ioned, out-moded Victorian novel pictures, The Scoundrel, .psychologoclal aspect not .that of Wutherlng Heights .portrayed with a depfessi Ity what goes on.

The Algona boys placed third on "stunt" night, with their "Farmer and His Ford." They also won numerous belt honors. Mr. and Mrs. M. P. Weaver went down last week Sunday to get their grandson (Mart) and Billy Goddeii, and they attended the Court of Honor.

Fishes on Beaver House. I have tramped through woods .and scaled mountains, crossed en movies in colors of some of the most beautiful mountain scenery I have ever looked upon. I have also got movies of many wild animals. Yesterday I hiked away out into'^S the mountains to where I had been told there was a deep, clear, blue .cold lake in which there were trout. I spent a clay going, fish-; Ing, and coming, and last night we' had trout for supper-—-which, of course, I caught. Several times I came near fall- lug into the lake, for I was standing on an uncertain spot. Then .when I was taking a trout off of ,the hook I heard a noise beneath me, and realized that I was standing on a beaver house, and that what I was hearing was baby beavers. I saw one of the beavers, but was not close enough to get a picture. While I was fishing I could hear the call of moose, elk, aud mountain goats, and I saw many tracks of bears. . I have already taken 1200 feet of j f^ pictures, which, I hope, will all be good. Religion is Neglected. I think you know me well enough to know that I am getting a lot of other things also. On the entire trip I have tried to learn about the condition of the people. One meets a lot of fine people on a trip of this kind, but I have been sorry to learn that not many whom T have met and talked with are religious; yet in both this country and in the good old U. S. A. we read, and are told by public men .(not including ministers), that the only thing that will save the world is the applied principles of Jesus Christ. It makes me wonder why a greater effort is not made to got the idea over to the people by example as well as by precept. I find so many people who are without church privileges, and no effort is being made to get these 'things to them. Peadwood Still Wlde-Open. . I was amazed beyond my powers to express to find the conditions which exist, as an illustration, at .Deadwood, S. D. An officer told me, "Wo run a wide-open town." I said, "I never saw naything like it." He then said, "Would you like to have me take your around?" Of course I said yes. Tho first place he took me to was into a gambling den. He had with him a tall westerner wearing cowboy boots, a • ten-gallon hat, and clothes in keeping, who gave me his name and said his father helped to lay out Wild Bill Hickok.j^ after lliekok had been shot by|l3T Jack McCall. Spotted as Minister. I confess that I felt nervous over being in the place. I said to the officer, "Say, who do you think you are taking through here?" Thej westerner said, with a drawl: "I : bet I know; I bet you are a preacher!" "The officer said, "I bet so, too." I admitted that I was, and I wondered whether the men and women gamblers thought so too, because of the way they looked at me. It will take me some time to overcome these things. The people who talk Christianity have got to do more than talk it. It must be lived as well. Well, I must close. I hope to have the pleasure and privilege of showing my pictures and telling my story in Algona sometime. that restless, wandering spirit: fireside which should revolve Wutherlng Heighta may appeal to a limited group of cinemaddicts, hut to the great majority it is slm- .ply something to get depressed about. After all, we do go to the -movies for entertainment. If we •want to read about sadists and sadism, we go to Kraft-Ablug or Havelock Ellis. Not that the things that happened in Wutherlng Heights couldn't happen nowadays, but they are not at all likely; and If they did happen, they would be a psychological study rather than entertainment features. I'll grant that one of my favorite West Bend, July 24—'While making shelves at the Balgemau service station, where he Is employed, Ronald Walker suffered a cut hand one day last week. An artery was almost severed. Fred Grunig and Donald Cobb, near by, applied a| tourniquit and stopped the flow of j blood. An Iowa City state university ambulance happened by, aud the driver offered assistance. •Ronald's father, Ben Walker, who had -been called, took the patient to Doctor Morrison's office. On advice of the doctor Ronald went •home to He down a while, as he was weak from loss of blood, but was back at the station late iu the afternoon, though with the arm In a sling.
