Gunmen predominate in the pictures began last of tnis week at the Call Theatre. Jack Oakie started the week with his picture, "Dude Ranch," which was substi- stituted for his picture, "June Moon," which was originally scheduled. The gunmen in this picture went west to a dude ranch and expected to make a big haul by robbing the neighboring banks, but they were eventually put out of business by Jack Oakie and his friends. * * * The second gunmen picture is "The 3 ublic Enemy," which is to be shown Thursday and Friday. It is officially an underworld picture with a vicious portrayal of the life of the fast shoot- ;rs ending in a merciless conclusion. Warner Brothers are reoprted to have outdone themselves to make a movie with the purest ethical intentions, but while doing so, they have not lost their sense of entertainment vlalue. William Wellman, one of the men who helped with the direction of "Wings' 1 was enlisted to direct this production. James Cagney, who plays the leading role is new material and it is understood that he is the toughest young customer to be shown in any of the gunmen pictures.

Hosiery Sale Neville's store is supposed to be a shoe store That is what we aim to run, but just now it has almost turned into a hosiery store. The Arrowhead Hosiery Mills of Chattanooga, Tennessee, are shipping me 300 dozen ladies' Bilk hose. This on top of our all ready big stock of men's, women's and children's stockings will indeed make the store look like a wholesale hosiery house. This is truly buying hose with a vengeance. Take it from me this shipment is real hosiery bargains. After days of bargaining letter writing and telegraphing they finally accepted my cash offer. The 300 dozen will be put on sale at 25c 49c and 75c a Pair We bought them right and will sell them right Lots of women that never have traded with us before are now buying their hose at Neville's. This shipment will be here the last of the week or the first of next week. I am also getting 100 do/x;n anklets from another concern to sell at two pairs for 25c. Jimmie Neville 5 THE SHOE MAN Iow;i. "Little Caesar" fame is to the more adult class. Jean Harlow, the platinum blond who played in "Wings" has a part in this production. • * * Climaxing the week of gunmen pictures interspersed with Ruth Catterton's "Unfaithful" on Tuesday and tonight is "Gun Smoke," similar to "Dude Ranch" in that the underworld element travels west for bigger and better fields in which to play their game. Richard Arlen Is the hero of "Gun Smoke" with Mary Brian, Louise Pa- zenda and Eugene Pallette. • * * Following on the heels of such a week of shooting and the underworld element comes a series of pictures with decidedly different sounding titles— "Indiscreet," "Dishonored" and "Good's Gift to Women," for the first six days of next week. "Indiscreet" for Sunday and Monday Is considered Gloria Swanson's best picture up to date. It was made by the same producers who put out "Sunnyside Up." We won't tell you anymore about Marlene Dletrich/fi "Dishonored" because of the big speel we made last week about it. We are somewhat curious about just what "God's Gift to Women" will be like. Some one midst have taken Prank Fay very seriously to make him appear as such a big shot. • » * "Secret Six" for Saturday, May 23, is another underworld picture, a running mate for "The Big House" with a cast which includes Wallace Beery, Louis Stone, Marjorie Rambeau, John Mack Brown and Jean Harlow. We have read that It is a hard boiled a saga as you can expect to see with this tale running from the slaughter pens to the death house, and stressing the Importance of having a good lawyer. Competitive beer runners create the racket. Svengali',' John Barrymore's latest I which is to be shown at the Call May 26 and 27, is in its premiere run in New York City. It has been showing about a week and New York critics say that it is going to settle down for a run, and make good in a big way V/e dislike to burden you again with his or her "best picture up to date," but that Is what is being said abhut John Barrymore in "Svengali." For hisTril- by, Barrymore discovered Marian Marsh, described as "a youngster with a square blond face," and a "knockout Robert Stiles of Algona were guests on Sunday at the A. E. Clayton home.
