The Modern Mixer club met at the home of Mrs. Marinus Nelson Young Author Has Respect For Marriage Bonds Goldficld Gazette: A refreshing story by a young Iowa author, Richard Sherman of Algona, has been transformed into a movie. It has excellent actors taking all parts and it has made an excellent impression on all who have read the story or attended the movie. It is n triangle story with a difference, the third member of this triangle is a straight-forward, level-headed gentleman, who does his best to remedy a badly tangled situation— and succeeds. We like the story and we like the movie; we hope everybody who can will see the picture; we trust everybody who can reads the story. It is a most welcome change from the inane type of story so many young Iowa authors have turned cut lately. Recalling some of the "best stories" of the past ten years, we find most of them dealt with absolute disregard for the marriage ties; most of them actually exalted divorce and Infidelity; some even stooped to murder and other crimes to let the addle-pated husband or wife or the unscrupulous clear a bad sailing, taste in sweetheart have Those stories left .. „„„ „,„„ „, the mouth of decent, home-loving folks. Richard Sherman's story re^ moves much of that bad taste; It hammers home the Idea that there is still considerable respect for that clause in the nuptial ceremony that says "for better, for worse"; still considerable reverence for and obedience to the commandment City Bills AuRUfit 28. 1936.
