Public Reaction to the Telephone Boost The recent autocratic boost in telephone *ates by the Northwestern Bell company cer tainly stirred up a hornet's nest. City councils all over Iowa have "resoluted" against it, and the newspaper is rare which has not bitterly scored the company's action. Over at Storm Lake the city council did something more than "resolute." It directed the city attorney to institute injunction proceedings, and Judge Hudsbn, of this judicial district, is to he* the case. The Storm Lake petition alleges that the Bell company is a subsidiary of the American Telephone & Telegraph Co., whose net earnings hwa v,,™., , *_ Incidentally, could Guam have been made into another Corregidor before the Japs opened war? If not, then who would have benefitted from whatever had been done? Homesick Doughboy and the Hometown Paper There are a good many superlicious peo- .e who look down on the weekly ne\ per as compared with the city daily, out such of them as saw and drew the lesson from a recent Saturday Evening Post cover picture must have got a jolt The picture was of a lonesome doughboy eagerly perusing the columns of his home town weekly. "The way his eyes bulged out, and his expression of intense concentration, showed how deeply he was engrossed." Someone at Chicago, doubtless also home±,. f " "dT/n t e K° id home town - 'tutor A. L. Frisbie, of the Grin- 1-Register, to call attention to the picture and Mr. Frisbie made it the subjec of a little editorial which expressed riot only his own views but the views of nearly if no quite all other small town editors- THE CARROT 18 emerging as a very valuable vegetable. It seems from reading the papers that all that is necessary to cure a bad cold is to rub the essence of a carrot on the tummy.

ALGONA HAS a pretty good reputation over the state. In fact peopl* not m the know think it is a cit of 10,000 or better because no many presidents of state organisations, «!«•., come from Algona. Of course it could be that Al. gona's population is made up of the best Part of an ordinary city of 50,000. Could piying iresn, spanning water 10 thirsty cinemaddicts in the form of homely, folksy family-life American sagas is running dry if this latest Andy Hardy picture is any proof. While it still retains the social philosophy Which has made this one of the most popular serials in the history of the silver screen, there is too much moralizing and too little plot to keep up interest As a matter of fact, it isn't the courtship of Andy (Mickey Rooney) at all; it is Andy's girl friends who do the courtin* and poor Andy is kept busy keeping out of their avid clutches. The supporting cast is the same—and very efficient tod, with Lewis Stone as the understanding and erudite judge but the producers will have to substitute a little action for the long-winded and rather tiresome tirades which Judge Hardy delivers throughout the entire picture. FOUR JACKS AND A JILLA local attorney made me a bet that given a director's megaphone, a little (and darn little) financial support, a troup of just grade-B actors and no script whatsoever, he could concoct a be « er Picture than Four Jacks and a Jill and win a law-suit on the side without even taking off his coat. I didn't, take the bet because I think he's right. This is about the poorest excuse for a picture that has come around for some time. Ray Bol- r f*l* Q nlA«*A*> J«._ . i. .

Let's get rid of the whole kit-and-kaboo- dle of 'em — saving out only a few of the oldsters for character roles, and break in a new crop. Well, ITS worth a trial.
