We watched It's Easy Now to Have That Home for Your Family Don't continue paying rent and getting nothing hack for the money you spend. The Algona Building & Loan offers to responsible young couples the facilities for buying a house out of salary incomes. Let us help you finance your home on easy monthly payments. Our plan is practical for men realizing an even minor income. Let us tell you about our monthly savings plan. Algona Building & Loan 107 W. State St. A. L. Cunningham, Sec. Northrup, King & Co. are Advertising their Garden Seeds this week and so are we. For a complete line call at Akre's and don't forget our Globe Chick Starter, Scratch Grain & Oyster Shells For a few days only "Richelieu" and "Pure Quill" 50c Coffees will be sold for 39c per pound, A K R- E'S Walter thread up one of the machines with a reel of fllm, and if you ever thought learning, to thread a sewing machine was complicated, you should Just try to thread up the movie machine. The loops over the various small rollers can't be too loose nor too tight. They must be Just right, and Walter know how it is done to perfection. * * * After the picture was started we took a peek inside and watched the fllm run along at about ninety feet a minute which is something more than a mile an hour. Think of It, on a two hour show, two miles of film must travel through the machine. There are 1,000 feet of fllm on the average reel, which means that the machines must be alternated every eleven minutes. There are tiny black spots in the upper right hand corner of the picture which act as signals to the operator as the time approaches to change from one machine to the other. The change is made by Stepping on a switch which starts the second machine and stops the first one. There are two kinds of sound pictures, one for which the sound is recorded on a record and the other which carries the recording along the side of the fllm. We watched both kinds as the short subject sound was recorded on a disc and the main picture on the fllm. The discs are sixteen inches across and look like vic- trola records. However, they are played from the inside out while victrola records are played from the outside in. * » • It is n't until you have been in the operator's box a little while that you can clearly understand the sound which is magnified by some sort of a thing on the wall whose name we proceeded to forget after Walter had told us. In fact, we couldn't understand the talkie at all at first. About the time we were ready to leave it suddenly struck us that we were getting everything that was being said. the cell. There is a wee, tiny light ray which does the business. When the sound reaches the screen It is 10,000,000 times greater than when in the photo-electric ell. * « * Our visit to the operator's box was an entirely unexpected one, and to seq how everything worked proved great fun. The box is one of the best equipped in the state so now we think we have seen about all there is to see in the way of talkie equipment. Since we didn't upset the record when we opened the door, and apparently did no other damage we were given an invitation to call again. We are planning to do so after the new theatre Is completed and will tell you then how they fly the pictures.
