At tho present time at Washington, D. C., they are advocating to limit the profits on all business to a certain per cent. If we limit the profits from every business in the United States in tho good times tlmt our democratic friends are bringing on, we can double the salaries of everyone In tho United States, nnd have enough left to keep tho CWA work going the year round, then unemployment and surplus will be n. thing of the past. You remember, three years ago when I advocated to put 4,000,000 men to work at any cost? I was Inughed at, but It hns happened. You will also see the spreading of profits and limiting- of wealth happen In the near future. Sterling Coal Feed Co.

DECEMBER 18 1933 CHARLES CITY NEWS GODFREY TALKS AT CHARLES CITY Community Unity Is Urged; Farm Bureau Elects Mather Head. CHARLES CITY, Dec. 18.-George Godfrey, widely known as Alg-ona farmer as well as assistant to the president in agriculture at Iowa State college, spoke at the annual meeting of the Floyd county Farm Bureau held Saturday afternoon In the Ellis auditorium. He explained the corn-hog plan of production as outlined by the committee of 19 men of which 'he was a member at a meeting held in Des Moines. Mr. Godfrey said there were as many plans suggested as there were men on the committee and of necessity there was much compromise in the final plan. He stated farmers must think and act as a ·jroup but they must not forget their responsibilities to the community. Mr. Godfrey believes the plan goes farther than just an increase in returns for it includes community unity. In this Mr. Godfrey thinks tho farmers have failed in their responsibility for many have been so busy making ends meet that they have not had time for the finer things in life. Under the new plan there will be less production and more hours of leisure. The speaker urged both men and women to allow for growth In enjoyment of church, wholesome recreation and pleasure in pictures, music and travel. He said the standards were fixed by the ability of persons to enjoy things.

James Dunn, Cliff Edwards, lillian Roth and June Knight head a cast which includes Lona Andre, .ilian Bond, Dorothy Lee, Charles (Buddy) Rogers and others. The antics of Cliff Edwards and James Dunn as a pair of slick- fingere'd graduates of carnival ranks ire sufficient to carry the usual sicture, but they are supplemented by Lillian Roth, torch singer who really has what it takes, and June Knight, another musical comedy star with a world of ability.

There'a a good word to be spoken for George Brent, Margaret Lindsay antl Eugene Pallette--who is ever best cast ag the flatfooted detective sargeant. "Horse Play," with Slim Summer- viile, Andy Devine and Leila Hyams, completes the double feature, and is a cheerful mixture of cowhands from Montana and society from England, with tho cowhands walking off with the girl at the curtain, having- apprehended the villian in the case. * * * KATHLEEN NOKBIS NOVEL AT STUAND.
