Head The Want Ada—It Pay* The Algona band played at Interlaken park a week ago Sunday celebrating the opening of the summer season. Wilbur Zeigler, band member, hurried at his farm home with the chores; loaded his family and his new uniform Into the car and arrived at the park on time, but could not find his horn in the car. He had forgotten it • • • Dutch Lorenc and Slim Smith went fishing near Fergus Falls, Minn, and besides fishing they played "Round and Round." Not the musical score but the automobile type. In starting for home they compassed their direction from a filling station. After driving some distance the boys came upon the station again. A second start was well under way when of a sudden and surprise it loomed in front of them. At this time the attendant seemed to become acquainted and waved his hand as they went by. The good man's directions were followed and all went well. • • • Our friendly city Is not as friendly as the outside appears. A lady called another one by telephone and when informed that her son had been home sick the entire day she was well-wished with the polite words, "I hope he has to stay in bed for six weeks." A call of this type Is worth more than a nickel in relief and the telephone company should have a raise In rates. • • • • Red, the butcher at Sorensen's, is of Danish descent. He had a birthday the past week and the boys asked him what he wanted for a present. They were informed a roll of "snoose" was fitting and useful. Ray Cook of the Algona bakery made the presentation. Red did not accept the gift for he does not use snoose. Harold Sorensen was astonished because Hed Is the first Dane to his knowledge who does not have the habit Folks who expect to vote in the fall had better brush up on marking of a ballot if they want their votes counted. Several ballots In the Third Ward were marked with an (X) for five senators. They were all republicans, too, which may account for that party running second in most of the country. • • • In the friendly battle for county attorney one of the aspirants served as good Samaritan primary day. He answered a call to drive two women to the polls. On the way to the voting place one lady kept relating of the rood qualities of one of the office seekers and ended up by saying, "He's my man and the one I'm going to vote for.' The man she was going to vote for was the driver's opponent * * • A new resident coming from Swea City is sure of one thing in Algona. The ringing of the curfew is the means by which people will know when the second shows start * • • Dr. Schaap like his tomato Juice. He buys It by the dozen cans. • • • ' Up at Armstrong a business man advertises by posters which among other things are the big type letters reading, "Free Gifts." • • • A Minneapolis paper carries a 80- year ago today column. Memorial day told of a baseball game pitched by Jim Duryea who won 1 to 0 over Eau Claire of the same league. » • • Art Gainea, an eighteen year old pitcher, who finiaheu high school In Jannary, has been named "Schoolboy" by his teammates of the Algona Grays. He has won two victories for the Grays and is not here on a basis of an all-salaried player, but as a kid out for the experience. Art receives four pnd five letters a day from home folks in St. Louis, this being the first time away from home alone. • • • • The Masons have erected a beautiful stone monument at the rear of their temple with inscriptions of the various lodges upon It 13 Graduate At Vernon School in Commencement Lu Verne: The school activities at Vernon Consolidated school, southeast of LuVeme came to another year's end last week.

REVIEW OF RECENT MOVIE PICTURES The mnch-Ulked-of "Thwie Three" WM thown here last week. Made from the even more heatedly discussed, "The Children's Hour," It is less sensational than the stage play and probably more true to life. The Lesbian theme was handled with great restraint and delicacy in "Maedchen in Uniform." However, the movie cznr, Hayes, would permit no such subject in an American-made film. Miss Lillian Hellman, the author, has rewritten her play *o that it Is acceptable to the censors, and so that it pleases a larger public by ending with comparative happiness. It seems scarcely believable that intelligent adults would accept the gossip of children without first investigating, but it must be admitted that twelve-year old Bonlta Granvllle plays her part with such conviction that her grandmother—ably played by Alma Kruger—might well be deceived. Such a child should have been taken to a specialist long before she had an opportunity to do so much irremediable damage. Little Rosalie Wells, coerced by Mary into supporting her story, is played by little round-faced girl in pig-tails, Marcta May Jones. The silly meddling aunt is Catherine Doucet. The leads are played by Merle Oberon and Miriam Hopkins, supported by Joel McCre*. Miss Oberon is perhaps more beautiful than Miss Hopkins, but has not yet acquired the perfection of technique which the latter displays, nor is her voice as rich in timbre. "These Three" is definitely a picture of dramatic rather than artistic interest, and as uch is good. • • • One of the motion picture* which we have been treasuring in our memory for some time ia "The Last Wilderness." Ned Frost, big-game hunter, tok his camera, and Howard Hill, famous archer, his bow and arrow Into the wilderness of Wyoming to get specimens for natural history museums and to bring back a photographic record, with sound, of animals which are gradually becoming extinct. Hill delivers the commentary In a softly blurred Southern' voice. It would be Impossible to enumerate all the scenes of interest photographed during the course of two years, but one must call attention to at least n few. There is the first picture ever taken of a bear in hibernation with her cubs. The mother goes into hibernation in November and comes out in April. Her cubs, always two in number, arc usually born about the first of January, but rarely does the mother see them until they are three months old. A bear grows from a two-inch length at birth to about six feet In height and some 500 to 600 pounds. Later the hunters come across the trail of the mother and her cubs which are now big enough to climb trees. A three-toed killer bear attacks the mother. The battle is horrific as the two bears slash at each other with tremendous blows that resound appallingly. The mother Is killed and the cubs are adopted by the men. Later, Hill shoots the killer. A snooping bull elk bugles to the cows in another elk's band. You can see his breath t» he gives voice to his characterise three-noted whistle. 4 IP is challenged and there Is a raging battle. You can hear their antlers crash 'and the trees torn down i the struggle. The Intruder goes away minus part of his antlers. A new born antelope is shown still too weak to stand. But within three hours after birth, the baby attains the fastest speed of which this swift.. of animals Is ever capable. A mountain lion looking like a very large Persian cat, spies two coyote pups and gnashes her cth like a cat when it sees a bird. There is a remarkable picture of the sage chicken or strutting grouse parading his beautiful ruff to attract the female bird. He throws out his chest and forces air through holes in his breast making considerable sound. Thed ruramlng grouse beats his wings on a long in an irregular rhythm which sounds like the jungle telegraph In "Saunders of the River." If one had a private movie library, surely this picture of animal life would be included. Every .school child should see it and every adult who pretends to any Interest in nature. The picture might well be shown every year. Miss Rieanor Jacobcen of Brltt is visiting at the Antone Didricksen home. Mrs. W. C.

Read The Want Ad*-It Paja WITH BARGAINS In the Month of June, 1927, a little furniture store was born at 120 North Thorington street in Algona and after a thorough examination by friends and future customers (the examination didn't take long) it was decided that perhaps the little fellow could survive for 60 days. _ But folks, after the first few days the youngster, by making a lot of noise, received a wonderful lot of attention from the people of the community and really foo ed everyone by beginning to grow. Then came the depression, but the struggle the little fellow had gone through in starting life seemed to have given him strength and he grew bigger and better each year even under adverse conditions.
