You heard something about it several weeks ago when the Rices purchased the Boettcher building first door north of the Gift Shop for a new theatre to be called the Thorlngton Theatre. Suh- day the architects, Tinsley, McBroom & Hlggins of Des Moines were in Algona and blue prints are now ready for Cowan & Son who have the contract for the building which is to be remodeled at once. The new theatre will seat about 500 and will have a 24 by 24 stage. The new house will play stock companies and can be used for home talent plays and the like as well as for talking pictures. It will be necessary to fly the pictures from the box In the Call theatre to the new theatre to order to keep the stage clear of the heavy sound equipment which makes it very difficult at the present time to use th e Call stage for home talent productions and the like. New Western Electric sound equipment and a Kooler Air system have already been ordered for the Thorlngton theatre. The Way it Works, The Northwood Anchor says: "A great deal of trouble hi this world is caused by the fact that a girl will marry a man she does not love and then begin loving a man she does not marry." Then there is the girl that will step out with a married man and the married man's legal wife gets sore and a divorce is the result. The married man, who thus violates wedding vows Is the worse of the tWo for in most cases the girl is Just a poor, simple thing. Her life is ruined, the man continuing to associate with respectable people. POUB CORNER NEWSJ Had you noticed that the new furniture is here for the lobby just off the entrance to the Call? If not, be sure you do the next time you are there. Mrs. Rice tells us that it isn't all unpacked yet either. The decorating in the lobby is to be started Wednesday, and the place will soon be a very attractive one in which to wait for the beginning of the show. The south- side lobby which will eventually be constructed in the old Lathrop & Weaver office, will not be started until after the new theatre is completed.
