The Upper Bes Moines-Republiean, December 17,1930 A Review of Last Week's Pictures. (By the Critic). "Sunny", with Marilyn Miller, Law- Mijce Grey and Joe Donahue (Monday *nd Tuesday) was a disappointment to *j iriost fans who had enjoyed "Sally." Marilyn Miller's artistic dancing was liven but a small place and the story was rather commonplace. "The Big Trail" with El Brendel, John Wayne »nd Marguerite Churchill (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) lived up to all »he press notices and fully justified the four stars given it by Liberty. It was * glorious picturization of the grca t adventure of the intrepid souls who brav- «d the dangers of a wild country to find ft new home. We felt that the hero And heroine left something to be desired but the stupendous presentation of the terrific struggle of these pioneers against the elements, was so breathtaking that it overwhelmed the story '•ompletely. "The Last of the Duanes" by Zane Grey was a typical westerner with beautiful scenery and rather tareful direction. Have you noticed the Beautiful cloud effects now being shown on the screen? They are glorious. "Passion Flower" (Sunday) with a flve- •tar cast playing a popular Kathleen Norris story, fell just short of being n great .picture. It is so new that even the cities have not seen it and is another evidence of Manager Rice's ceaseless efforts to provide Algona with talkies second to none. The impressive cast Included Lewis Stone, Kay Francis, Chas. Bickford, Zazu Pitts and Kay Johnson. Chas. Bickford seemed a little miscast as the lover—being a second Oeo. Bancroft in build, but he played a difficult role with all the finesse in his power. "Follow Through" (Monday and Tuesday) with that popular pair of youths, Buddy Rogers and Nancy Carroll "clicked" with the fans. After all, it's youth that counts in the movies with the average audience. And nothing too serious—pretty tunes, girls and comedy. Not a bad week, at that. A short subject, shown last Sunday under the title of "The Clock Shop," or something to that effect, was as beautiful and artistic a technicolor musical comedy as we have seen for many a month. It shows the unlimited possibilities of the talkie screen in presenting stage picture of great charm. Lu Verne Lady Died on December 9. LuVerne lost a respected and beloved matron a week ago Tuesday when Mrs. Elwood French passed away at the age of thirty-two years, having been ill but a few days with pneumonia. Mrs. French was born in West Virginia. She then lived with her parents in Illinois. She was united in marriage to Elwood French of Hardy, and lived all her married life near LuVerne.

We Have Changed All That By Herbert Quick and Elena Stepanoff Mac Mahon Copyright by The Bobbs-Meri-ll] Co. WNU Service THE STORY CHAPTER 1 In the ancient Russian city of Kazan, undor Soviet rule, Commissar Vlllnsky'* Investigating squad Invades the palatial home ol the Kra*- sln family, aristocrats, with th« avowed purpose of determining whether the government shall requisition tn« house. Vlllnsky Insults Musla, youthful daughter of the KiasslnB, In the presence of her mother, who Is powerless to act In liar defense. (Continued from Last Wednesday.) "1 know them!" said Vlllnsky. "They hare, a hotue almost «» big HR tills palace I What IB ttie nature of tills report, Tovtrlsch Petrov?" "It deals with their house, and with tlic fnrnlly. TH* house seems, from wlmt can be said without » domiciliary visit, to be well occupied by members of the family, which li extensive. The old woman who li really the hend of the family asserts that it is full. She In a vtrj rigorous person, Mrs. Krassln." "I know," zald Villnsky. "The immediate) family," went on Petrov, "consist! of the mother of whom 1 have spoken, the father, who is snlci to ha a helpless Invalid, a former Judge—r" "I know I" exclaimed Vlllnsliy. "A daughter, a young girl, and a eon—" "Ilyn Krausln," said Vlllnsky bit- torl.v. "A young peacock of nn aristocrat. A former oflicer In a Guards regiment. T know I" "It Is inspected," continued Petrov, "that Ilya Krnssln is engaged In secret plotting with the enemies of the proletariat." "Of cour*e he is," exclaimed Vlllnsky. "Naturally," remarked Lorts, "if he •was nn officer of a Guards regiment! I regret," looking at n magnificent watch, "that I must now take my departure. I think we have had n good meeting. This Krassln family, and all the important houses of which we have hod reports, will bear further inve'stlgation. Let the necessary measures be taken at once!" The commlesar, who had made that amiable suggestion as to thinning out the occupants of the palaces by executions, was. «ubject to certain physl- c'af'revulsiplui of'feeling which seemed to have no moral parallel In his mind. He was disgusted, as he swent through clouds of dust, his motor car flying with no regard to safety through the wind-swept pulverized tilth of the city. The statue of the poet Derzlmvin was piled about the base with dreadful garbage. The huger statue of Czar Alexander III, liberator of the serfs, who u«w were In process of being sot free over again by Liberators Lenlne nnd Trotzky, was unapproachable. Yet, the krepost or citadel, from which he was now making toward thnt car of his in the railway yards, with Its wnll running from tower to tower of the fire by which It was dominated, was nn Impressive sight, enclosing ns it aid a wide space rrom which the great cathedral and numer- ous churches lifted gulden "Somes Th testimony to Christ, nnd the red brick Stiyumbekn tower which attracted to Its two hundred nnd fifty feet of height the eyes of every Mussulman, who venerated It ns the birthplace of one of his saints. Full of the mystery, the stern stress of Russian history was this great jewel of a place In the center of Kazan, where these historic buildings were grouped about the old kropnst nnd governor's palace, now occupied hy n new tyranny; but Loris' cnr, ns It ASTING GIFTS appropriate and inexpensive! But Lorls' Car, SB It Moved Out Past the Ragged Sentry at the Gates, Plowed Through a Slough of Filth. moved out past the ragged sentry at the gates, plowed through a slough of tilth that not even the summer sun and heat had boon ahle to bake from disease In mud to disease in solid form. Bolshevist Kazan was remarkable In this: It was much more foul than czarlst or republican Kazan had been. To anyone not actually employed In scavenging, Its filth was Inconceivable, In n great many ways. And as the commissar passed the Tcntralny square In which stood the fine structure In which Kazan's permanent grand opera had been housed, he noted again the extent to which It had been dflmnged hy the gunfire of the Czot'hs, when tliey had occupied the old town. "A pity I" lie thoiiKlit; "though Tovarisch Vlllnsky would not be much interested. He means to go higher In our new government. ... I never thought I should cure much about being the rung of a ladder . . . not for such as he ... not for anyone. ... I wonder why he Is so much interested In thai Krnssln family. With ; him, it must be one of three things: money, revenge, woman. . . . And of course, the welfare of the masses!" He found a numerous group of pco-. pie about his car as he alighted and crossed the platform, to none of whom did he pay tnc sllKhtosf attention. He found awaiting him In the car Itself, Its only nccifpant so far as the public room was concerned, an old woman of the Tartars, »o numerouH In Kazan. She WUB not merely old—she was ancient, but she stepped as lightly as a bird. She mart* a spot In the room, with her bright dress of yellow and red made up of many flounces, like a gorgeous rug; and as she moved the string of copper and silver coins which hung from her neck, wrists and hair made music which brought to one's mind visions of desert-girt cities and streets of bazaars a way off beyond the Caspian. They tinkled louder, as she made the obeisance of the days of old as Lorls entered, "It Is you, grandmother," said he. "I wanted to speak to you." "It Is I, son," she replied. "There Is a family, once a great family, of whom I want Knowledge." "In Kazan province, my son?" she said. "In Kazan city," said Lorls. "Then it Is simple," replied the Tartar woman. "What Is It you wish to know?" (To be Continued Next Week). Lasting protection for the deceased is now within ihe means of the aver- aye family. The Buckstaff Burial Vault adds only moderately to the cost of the funeral, and provides a comfort to the bereaved, which cannot be measured in dollars and cents, This Vault is made of purified Keystone Copper Steel, and is guaranteed to protect the collet and the remains from ground waters and burrowing animals, for 99 years, Specify the Buckstaff Burial Vault, and be assured that the utmost in protection has been furnished. The BuckstafF Vault is an optional part of our service. We recommend it because it li consistent with the best service possible.
