'Lawless Legion'
Gives 'Ken' His
Greatest Role
Star Leads 10.000 Head of Cattle Over
Lawless Plains in Thrilling
Outdoor Adventure.
The picture at the Parmele the
atre Friday and Saturday has been
without a doubt designe dand con
structed for audience purposes only.
It does not contain any especial moral
lesson nor does it portray a phase of
history but for real pulse throbbing
thrills and action it beats anything
this reviewer has ever seen.
All of this refers to "The Lawless
Legion" in which Ken Maynard and
his horse Tarzan are the principal
factors. This western star seems to
have won a wide range of fans for
there was not only a huge crowd but
were of all ages, young, near young,
and those not so young, and all are
enthusiastic in claims. Some even
applaud when some spectacular bit of
daredevil work was enacted. There
is no question this boy can ride.
"The Lawless Legion" is presented
in such a novel manner that one
doesn't stop to think about it except
to wonder how Ken can do the things
he does and still live to draw his pay
check. The story tells of a community, be
cause of drought find it necessary to
find better grazing lands for their
cattle. The only thing that stands
in the way is a band of organized
and notorious cattle thieves who
have been operating through a par
ticular stretch of land thru which
the cattle must pass. The commu
nity in a mass meeting decide to
trust their pooled herds with a man
then resting in jail because of dis
turbing the peace.
The cattle are pooled and (there
must be all of ten thousand) en
trusted to the young man (Ken) and
in turn he is tricked out of the en
tire herd. Of course he loses his popu
larity almost immediately, but he sets
out to get them back again he does
too. but herein lies the story.
In the bandits' rendezvous he and
Tarzan give the audience some real
wild west riding. There are two par
ticularly fine pieces of stunt work in
addition to the fine cattle scenes and
that is Ken when he is tied to a wild
horse with his head dangling about
the horse's heels. The other is a close
viek of Ken driving a pair of fast
running horses while standing on an
iron rfod connecting two wheels.
Others in the cast of 'The Lawless
Legion" give adequate performances
They include Nora Lane. Paul Hurst,
J. P. McGowan, Frank Rice and How

C. O. Carlberg in the south part of
the city and did considerable dam

of the thunder caused the breaking
of a window in the home and from
near which Mrs. Carlberg had mov

The only source of income that
the Red Cross has in the peace time
activities is that which comes from
its membership drives and special
calls that some overpowering disaster
makes necessary, but the immediate
relief and the prompt rush of sup

from the funds that are accumulated

Our ability to serve you efficiently and economically
has been greatly increased thru merger with the
H. M. Soennichsen Grocery, retention of the pow
erful I. G. A. buying connections and consolidation
of all our efforts in one channel to the end that we
may bring to our door hundreds of new customers.
Last Saturday's sales the second week-end in our
enlarged store zoomed to new heights, proving
that people are very much alert to saving money.

The coffee market is lower this week and our prices on all
brands have been dropped from 1 to 3 cents per pound. One
thing you can depend on at Black and White and that's just
this: Whenever the market quotations on any commodity are
lowered, we fall right in line by reducing our selling price,
legardless of the size of our stocks on hand. Our regular low
coffee prices have saved you money now you can buy still
lower. Note the quotations and compare with other stores!

The rain that has fallen 'since
Monday has had the effect of check
ing a large part of the community
activities, the road construction pro
gram being held up for the past three
days and with little prospect of
much improvement for the rest of
the week and the bad weather has
also held back the work on the new
Missouri river bridge. Many of the
farmers were preparing to start the
corn shucking season but the rain
has made it impossible to get in the
fields. The soft roads have also
caused much annoyance to the travel-
ng public and local people who have
found that it is far from a pleasant
task to try and get out on the high
ways in this kind of weather. Not
the least the weather man has put
the "kibosh" on many of the box
socials and entertainments that were
arranged in the rural schools of the
county and disappointing the teach
ers and puptls. as well as the patrons
of the school. But all will be well
bye and bye as the sun cannot always
remain behind or the rain make
travel impossible.
The box social that was to have
been held at the school house In dis
trict No. 42. of which Miss Eliza
beth Nolting is teacher, on Friday
evening, has been postponed. The
announcement of the date for the
social will be given later.

The opening feature was the sup

some 430 were served during the
evening with the splendid menu that
the ladies had prepared and on this

to have played for the dance was un
able to reach here on account or roaa
