If cleanliness is next to God
liness, then hearty laughter is
next to real honest endeavor
during thesa strenuous times
Quite a little laughter is to be
garnered at {he Orpheum
on Sunday night when the
dainty, vivacious and piquant
little Triangle star, Claire An
derson, breezes through "The
Mask." Sally inherits a million
and forget her friends until
experience meets her with a
large, healthy lesson and she
comes back to earth. 21-1

headlights of a car which they
met blinded the driver so that
he could not see his way. E. J.
and Wife and Mrs. W. D. \vere

THE COMMUNITY CHURCH
Services at the Community
church. Sunday school at the
regular hour 10 o'clock. There
will be no regular preaching ser
vices for the morning, but there
will be several local men to give
short interesting addresses at
the close of the Sunday school,
which will greatly benefit you,
and which will replace the regu
lar services.
So those generally coming
late try to "whip" up a little
this Sunday and take advantage
of this new and attractive and
valuable service.
There will be the regular even
ing services at 8 o'clock.

one of the Funke boys. It is a
worthy consideration. By prop

absolutely safe for these boys to
engage in. Many of these or
ganizations are reporting suc
cessful results. Cottonwood
boys must set a pace for other
organizations to follow.

"SERVICE STAR"
Next Thursday at the Or
pheum a Goldwyn motion pic
ture that will reach the heart of
'very man, woman and child in
Cottonwood. This picture is a
drama of the American home
'nd of mothers', daughters' and
'overs' hearts. Not one scene
of it is laid in Europe. Not one
scene reveals a battle, or pre
paration for battle. There are
no spies, no struggle, no tense
unhanny moments to bring grief
or pain to the womanhood of the
nation.
But there is a wonderful story
and all the way through it you
see a wonderful girl, who,
through the power that God
puts into the souls of women,
sends away a wonderful boy to
make this a wonderful world to
live in.
Whether you are hard or soft
heart whether you think you
wish to or not, there is nothing
in the world that can keep you
from coming to the Omheum
Theatre to see the Service
Star. 21-1
