The story following is from a let
ter received from M.ss Wilcox by H.
C. Seymour, state club leader.
"I took my first club work when I
was 12 years old, beginning with the
nnnltrv nroiect. I did not under
stand it and when school closed I lost
interest and did not complete my
work. The next year I took garden
ing and was more successful. I then
began to understand and like club
work so that I took sewing and calf
club work the next year. I have tak
en many other projects since then,
last year taking the wheat project,
i believe I like it best of all.
"I received second priie on my
sewing and first on my wheat at the
counyt fair last year. I also received
first prize on my wheat at the state
fair that year. This will be my last
year in club work as I have finished
nigh school and will go to 0. A. C.
SCREEN VERSION OF FAMOUS
STAGE HIT TO BE HERE SOON
The widely heralded Metro-Goldwyn
Maver nicture "The Merry Widow
is coming to the Star theater on next
Sundav and Monday. It presents one
of the most significant combinations
effected for the screen. It unfolds
a picturesque romance of a gallant
prince and a popular American dancer
in a small continental xingaom, uuu
in the hands of Erich von Stroheim,
ideally suited to stage such a thing,
the production is said to fulfill all
which was expected ol it. me una
role, entrusted to Mae Murray, fur
nishes this niauant actress with the
bst role of her career, and gives her
full oDDortunity to display the charm
vivacitv and talent for which she is
sc justly famous. John Gilbert who
co-stars in this picture with Miss
Murray eives a performance that
brings him still further to the front
tt a popular idol. Von Stroheim has
a recognized genius for selecting
tvnes that are remarkably fine actors
and then inspires them to do the best
work of their careers. The result is
tht each character stands out like
iare intaelio. The cast includes such
favorites as Roy D'Arcy, Tully Mar-
nhall. George Fawcett, Dale Fuller,
Josephine Crowell, Estelle Clark, Don
tyan, Hughie Mack, Edward onneny.
George Nichols and un ron.
"The Merrv Widow" is a Bcreen ver
sion of the famoui stage play by
Victor Leon. Leo Stein and Franz
Thar produced by Henry W. Sav-
its. Erich von Stroheim handled
Lhe adaDtation and continuity for th
picture in collaboration with Benja
and Smith, but he came to grief when
he met Reid Buseick and was taken
for the count himself. Leonard
Schwarz got a decision over Russell
Wright in the main go. The winner
of this match was challenged for a
battle at a later date by Barthelmae
of lone. The senior class won tne
battle royal in competition with the
three other high school classes. All
the preliminary bouts were well
matched. B. R. Finch had the car
nival in charge.

this was the legend inscribed
on what was later to be known a
the Liberty Bell, when it was
recast in Philadelphia in 1753-
Twenty-three years later this
prophetic admonition was car
ried out when the now historic
bell heralded the adoption of the
Declaration of Independence.
A century after this assertion
of American liberty, Alexander
Graham Bell gave to America
and to the world, in the 'ele
phonc, an instrumentality of i
new form of freedom. Limita
tions which had confined the
scope of the spoken word were
swept away. Doors of isolation
were thrown open. In his con
tacts with his fellows, man had
achieved a new independence.
For fifty years this emancipa
tion of speech has undergone an
unceasing evolution into a larger
and ever larger liberty. Year by
year man's voice has reached
out over greater and greater dis
tances until today it speeds
from coast to coast, borne on
