"DOWN TO EARTH'' FINEST PICTURE THIS STAR EVER
PRODUCED—TYPICAL OF "DOUG'' HIMSELF AND HIS
SCHEME OF LIFE—IS HIMSELF THE AUTHOR
SHOWS THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS, author and star of " Down to
Earth." another rip-roaring comedy backed by a
"real idea" for a plot, is hooked for Thursday, Fri
day and Saturday, afternoon and evening, at the
Idaho theater. A little quieter than some of the
others, perhaps, in that 'there is none of the melo
drama and the athletics have a resf, it is still conceded by critics
everywhere to be the BEST picture yet produced by the BIGGEST
Star in the world.

Don't Miss This One
Right here, at the beginning of this little story, we are going to
tell you that the picture will start each evening at 7 :10, and that it
runs two evenings before the usual Saturday evening jam. And
the front seats at the Idaho are thirty feet from the screen, the
screen being against the rear wall—unlike conditions in most 1 he
aters where front-row patrons are only a few feet from the picture.
At the Idaho there is a full view of the screen from the front seats.
of
"Doug" the Author and the Star
Douglas Fairbanks wrote this story himself; Anita Loos, who
is responsible for all of Doug's recent successes, wrote the titles ami
gave the whole crowd a bunch of names that are a whole evening's
fun in themselves ; and John Emerson is the director of all the big
Pairbank 's pictures. If this combination needs anything more, it is
there—all in this one picture; hundreds of little fine touches that
. produce laughs, quiet humor and witty sarcasm; excellent photog
raphy ; appropriately selected scenes, and
co-star in "Wild and Wooly."

Idaho for some time. We tiave been

Twin F'alls has grown to be a wonder

Gainful Gains—Speaking about un
bellevcable profits from farm prod
ucts on the Twin Falls tract, just let
your mind wander over the following:
B. Corcoran owns one hundred
and sixty acres of land in the vicinity
Eden, on the northside. One hun
dred and fifty-five acres of this farm
was in wheat this year and the crop
has been harvested, threshed,
keted and paid for—Mr. Corcoran re
ceiving a check for $13,953.65. This
amounted, of course, to $90.03 per
acre on the entire acreage—which
might be called "going some," even
for this favored part of the agricul
tural world!

"I believe Japan to be the last na-j
tion in the world that would enter
war with the United States." said Sid
McDonald, a former Times employe,
who is here from the San Francisco
navy yard, visiting his sister, Mrs.
Wilbur Hill, and who has spent tour
years on the Pacific as a member of
United States navy, a great part of
which was passed in the Orient.
"Japan trades more witli the Uni
ted States than with an other conn-1
try," he continued, "and her prosper
ity depends on the continuance of that
trade. I have been told on good au
thorlty that ninety per cent of her
exports are to this country. We were
in Japan at the time of the corona
tlon in 1915 and we were treated witli
the greatest enthusiasm and courtesy
by all the people, and I believe that
they were sincere about It. The cer
tainly showed us a splendid time and
every possible consideration.
