rrSEEMS TO US- By G. E. Bowers ft That whether Jean Harlow is now ! t jj wearing: her own hair, dyed brown; num. blonde curls tucked carefully away beneath the wig, is of little moment. But to millions, apparently, it is a matter of vital importance, judging bv the hundreds of columns of daily newspaper space devoted to the subject--space that is valued at several dollars, per newspaper, per column inch. At this rate, Miss Barlow's new wig (or dyed hair) has brought her several million dollars worth of publicity. It is not unlikely that she has a most effective, and highly paid, press agent And perhaps she's worth the publicity but it cant be proven by this writer for, believe it or not, he has! never seen her on the silver screen! j Dyed hair or a wig, the controversy i may continue to rage for months and | it will still continue to be immaterial j as far as we are .concerned. Just i around the corner no doubt is a new picture in which she is starred, the direct cause of all this carefully staged 'frenzied debate--wig vs. dyed curls. Why dotsn't some alert'reporter give one of her curls a quick little jerk and settle the matter for all tune? *T After a few weeks of winter, it i |J might be observed (as long as this column is achieving such a reputation for frankness anyway) that the only trouble with the Iowa climate is the vast amount of coal one has to burn to Keep warm, the price of said "coal--and the trouble experienced in starting the car mornings.

'NO QUARREL SAYS HOEVEN TO GOVERNOR ASKS HERRING FOR COMMUTATION, RENTZ Church Honors Pastor and Wife On Anniversary "In his letter, Governor Herring does not mention any letters from people living at Sioux City in behalf cf DeMers," said County Attorney C. B. Hoeven this week. DeMers has a Sioux Rev. and Mrs. F. B. Mansen of Middleburg were surprised by the congre- i gation of their church on "Old Tears" ' evening when, after the annual service on this occasion, they were asked to remain for a program in their honor. The previous Sunday was the 25th anniversary of the marriage of Rev. and Mrs. Mansen. The chairman of the consistory, Mr. Ben Wiersma, presided at the meeting and congratulations were extended by the various -societies of the church. Elder Albert Slothouber spoke for the consistory, Elder G. H. Franken extended best wishes of the Sunday school, Mrs. John J.

One or two others have also gotten into trouble. Strong evidence is available here against Bill Cash and George Price in connection with the daylight robbery of the Orange City National batik.

One large Iowa newspaper long ago decided upon a policy of preparedness by compiling a morgue filled with the r: t ,,' pictures of all the great, near-great, J?? and as many of the small fry of the state that the managing editor could possibly obtain. These pictures are carefully filed so that-if one gets into any kind of trouble his picture is instantly available without the necessity j of sending a man out to get one. This' process, of course, costs maney. We know, that is we are very confident, that this newspaper wrote every weekly publisher in the state for his photograph, and that was just a start.
