The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Sept. 1,1986 CHIC AGO AN CALLS LOCAL OFFICIALS VERY BAD NAMES And Mayor Will Demand An Apology After Tag Incident A Chicago man, signing himself Paid J. Ersman, threatens to raise hob with the City of Algona, have the community boycotted by the Chicago and Illinois Automobile clubs, and do other untold damage, in ft letter broadcast to local news* papers and officials, because he received a tag for improper parking, July 30. Mayor Carl Specht stated Satur* day that he intended to write the motor vehicle department of Illinois and find out who owns the car and Where they live, and ask an apology for insulting remarks made 'in Ersman's letter. Ersman called local officers "a bunch of crooks," and "unable to ace beyond the point of their nose regarding the welfare of their own town." Local officers point out that in keeping with the custom in other cities where strangers are not fam lliar with parking rules, the idea is not to fine anyone here who does not know the law, but • acquain them with the rules and regulations in a friendly and courteous manner. O. S. Relley, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, also wrote Ersman a letter inviting him to come back again some time and discover that his impressions were mistaken.

Double-back somersaults, and two and a half back somersaults are among the feats of daring they perform. Three Emerald Sisters, who are now on an eastern tour, will present an act of comedy acrobatics. They have also played all of the principal theatres of the land. Healey & Mack in a wire act, using ladders which they balance on wires, will present two different acts on each program. Merle's Cockatoos, a bird circus that is a "bird" of an act. The cockatoos do bike riding on a tight wire, tumbling, work out arithmetic problems, and rescue another bird from a burning building. Wit Thoma and his 10 Prince ton- ians, a radio recording orchestra, will play at the fairgrounds each night of the fair.

Robert Starr, the oldest son of the late Milton Starr, pioneer editor of the old Algona Republican and later the Upper Des Moines-Republlcnn, has built up a large fruit lusiness first started by his father 28 years ago and is now rated one of the largest fruit growers in the state. His younger brother, Arthur, seems to be a stock raiser, and a picture is shown of his fine herd of Hereford*. We quote from the Delta paper: "Whatever the comparison may >e, Delta county has some out- itanding fruit producers whose ante la more than local. Among them is R. H. Starr, who is operating about 300 acres of orchards south and west of Cedaredge.

REVIEW OF RECENT MOVIE PICTURES "Poor Little Rich Girl"—Shirley Temple. "Little Miss Nobody"—Jane Withers. There you have two famous child stars, whose mamas continually strive for supremacy for their prodigies. Shirley wins more "oh's" and "ah's" from her public, so apparently she Is the favorite. Whether she is more competent Is a matter for debate. She is two or three years younger than Jane. It may be that her cute ways and her curly locks, her dimples seem more important in the eyes of her directors as well as of her public than the somewhat superior technical skill of Jane. Jane's speaking voice is more flexible, her gestures more practiced. A child star's picture is almost sure to be sentimental, especially a Grade A picture (trade classification) such aa is always given Shirley Temple. Class B pictures—Jane Wlther's rating—are less apt to be one star specials. In "Little Miss Nobody" there are a number of children, at least one of them promising, "Mary" Jane's chum, has a sweet pretty face, but also some proficiency in acting. Jane's Indian song and dance is every bit as capable as Shirley's performances. Regardless, however, of any mere critic's comments, cinemaddtts will continue to follow their own stars. And why shouldn't they? • • • "His Brother's Wife. Since this picture Is another vehicle for the handsome Robert Taylor, there Isn't much use for us to say what we think. Although the story is what one might call a lot of tripe, it affords some opportunity to see and hear Jean Hersholt There's an actor of long and careful training. What a charming voice he has. Even to our ill-trained ears, his exclamations in German were an added pleasure. With all the German- speaking inhabitants in this community, why aren't we given German movies? Barbara Stanwyck does well with a trite role. "It's Love Again" Is one of the Jolliest of the season's musical shows. Since It will probably be back, we might as well discuss it even though it was shown some time ago. It moves so gracefully, so lightly and so swiftly. One scene scarcely ends before the next one begins. It blacks out before the dialog is finished—effecting a carefree lilting tempo. Not to mention the usual Robert Young breeziness which is practically the same every time. But it is to Jessie Mathews, who really has no equal in musical comedy, to whom credit for the entertainment is due. She dances, she sings, she talks, she acts, with skill and verve. Her husband, Sonnie Hale, gets a little less of the limelight in this picture. The producer in the story, whoever he la, does his bit in a finished manner. If we hadn't seen the prevue quite so many times, we could have more keenly enjoyed the shooting— "Why, Madame, you have only winged." • • * "Nero Wolfe" Is a allthely sleuth (If there is such a word. Hasn't A. A. Milne invented it?) Let us say right here and now that our reaction to "Meet Nero Wolf was colored by having previously read two Nero Wolf stories and thus formed a clear image of him and Archie Goodwin. So it happens every time we read the story first. It is probably the right of the director and the players to give their own Interpretation of a story. In that case the critic should See the movie twice, once to consider It in relation to the author's concept, and again to judge of it aa a motion picture in its own right. : Therefore, that awful girl-friend of Archie (Lionel Slander) probably added to the entertainment value—and everyone enjoyd the picture— but she didn't exist in the story, at least not in "The Frightened Men" and "The Rubber Band." Without her, he has a chance to fall vainly In love with the heroine of every story. Slander fits Archie's part very nicely. Edward Arnold In certain moments at the telephone and sometimes when he is alone, assumes the personality of Nero Wolf. At other times he is, regrettably too decidedly Edward Arnold, too noisy, too rapid In speech, too boisterously laughing (the "Diamond Jim" laugh). Nero Wolf as described by Rex Stout is slow of speech, very deliberate, sparing of his words, subtle, keen, quiet. Now and then, besides missing several pictures of no particular interest to us, we miss a picture which may prove to be 1 one of the best of the year. "Fury," brilliantly played by Sylvia Sidney, Spencer Tracy and Walter Erennan, is rated highly by Pare Lorenti, who writes a good column for Me- Call's Magazine. He says that " 'Fury* has been rightly hailed by the press as one of the great movies of the day . . ." 'Fury* would bfcve been an unusual production even without Mr. Lang (the director). But beyond the writing and the act- Ing and the story is a precise skill; a broad knowledge of the power of the camera, an understanding of tempo, of light and shadow . .." # • • • There are several picture* of unusual Interest to be exhibited here in the near future: among them "Nine Days a Queen" with Nova Pilbeam, the brilliant very young English actress; "Mary of Scotland" with the'capable Katherine Hepburn looking surprisingly like the unfortunate queen; and "Secret Agent" with Peter Loire of "Crime and Punishment" and "Made Love" fame.

And that vlait tells the story of the past 30 years. During that time Algona's plant has grown from an old steam engine-operated plant, into one-of the finest municipal organizations'In a city of Algona's size, bar none, in the United States, and its reputation is recognized and applauded by engineering concerns, authorities in municipal ownership, and in fact nearly every business, with the possible exception of the public utility power companies. • We frequently do not realize what we have, or how good it is, until we are impressed with what others have to contend with. In power rates, service and efficient operation, Algona is second to none; it's something worth shouting about.
