To fall them now would be plain evasion of our duty. Half-hearted revision Is little less than no revision."

There Is an opportunity to accomplish some of the best legislation in the history of Iowa. the community the lower taxes. Even In the same community distribution of the income tax burden would be unequal. This has been demonstrated repeatedly and there is no need to reproduce the argument. The only fair method of applying the replacement principle is the method proposed in the income tax bill. This results in reducing every taxpayer's levy by exactly the same percentage. i Senator Black's bogus replacement scheme will I fall because even a little study will show that it | could not be made to work fairly.

H, C. O TIS SKINNER AND Kismet are almost as inseparable as bread and butter, hnm and eggs, or crackers and cheejao; the mere mentftm of one naturally suggests the other. Produced originally at the Knickerbocker theater, New York, in 1911* this play has brought fame to Otis Skinner; he, in turn, gave to the play a success which It might never have enjoyed with a less talented artist in the title role. We havo, never seen the stage production, but the silver screen version Is one of indescribable beauty and charm; here Is the magic lure of the Arabian Nights, the fragrance of the Orient, the mystery and Intrigue'of the East, intimate glimpses into luxurious harems and gorgeous shaded gardens. Kismet (which means Fate) is the story of Hajj, beggar by profession and rogue by Inclination; If we might offer a single criticism, we would suggest that the play is slightly long and the action drags at various times. But the characterization which Skinner gives the old vagabond has been faithfully caught by the talking picture lens and will be placed, probably, In the same category as George Arils' portrayal of Disraeli. We mention these two widely different plays because each has brought fame to its principals and each has been faithfully reproduced In the talkies with even greater success than In Its original presentation.

Well, Certainly This Opinion Had Xo Place on the Editorial Page, [Knoxville Express.] The Audubon Advocate-Republican begins an apologetic paragraph: "With the firm belief that political opinion has no place in the editorial column of a newspaper, we are going to violate that principle for once, but on a question that we believe will leave us with a clear conscience."' What do you know about this, you old-fashioned blockheads who have been running political opinions on your editorial pages? Maybe they ought to go on the social page, or in the city news, or maybe among the church notes, or the want ads. Well, Hoy, We'll Say That Doctor Is Xo Friend of Yours. [Jarney's Own Column.] Editor Dewel, of the Algona Advance, wants to know just what it was that Doe Gaston finally gave us for Christmas. Well, we'll tell. It was an ash tray! W HAT IS THERE to say about a movie 'like "Divorce Among Friends"? You can tell from the title that it Is Just an innocuous comedy drama about married life and if it makes YOU HAPPY to see how UNHAPPY some other folks are you probably enjoyed tills one. To the strict moralist or the reformer, this is the kind of shjnv that breaks up homes and shatters the "good old traditions," whatever they are. One of the principals is under the soothing influence of liquor during the ten reels, and the husband and wife talk quite .frankly about the drawbacks to marriage. We have never been able to work ourself into a lather ftbout the tremendous influence which the movies exert over our everyday lives. A good cast, including Lew Cody, James Hall, Natalie Moorhead, and Irene Delroy, fought their way- through various domestic, entanglements and finally emerged victorious in the final fade-out. Movies like "Divorce Among Friends" are merely a means of spending an evening "out" after a hard day at the store or office, and any parent who sends or takes the children is simply wasting the money; the kids would probably pick Rin Tin Tin Saturday anyway. We'd give this about one star, and let it go at that> A ND THEN, THERE'S Marie Dressier and Polly Moran in "Reducing"; we attended both "Caught Short" and "Min and Bill" expecting to be disappointed, but were forced to admit tile genius of Marie Dressier. We shall never forget her performance as the inebriated old hag in Anna Christie. She is the one bright, o'atstanding feminine star of slap-stick comedy; she has no peer in a dramatic character part. She is just an "all-around gal," is Marie. In "Reducing" we view the experiences of two sisters in a New York beauty parlor and follow the love affairs of the two daughters, one with a millionaire's son, the other with a mail clerk. Movie-like, all ends well. With the unlimited possibilities for comedy in a Pullman sleeping car, we have often wondered why it was not put to more frequent use, both on the stage and in the talkies. In this talkie, we have a . very ludicrous scene, when Miss Dressier attempts to "make" an upper berth, with the combined efforts of her daughter, husband, and most of the inmates of the car. Misses Moran and Dressier spend a great share of the time wrangling imong themselves, which is rather nerve-racking, but the comedy moves swiftly, the photography is excellent, and the sound effects, especially the snoring of the husband it appropriate intervals, lift the show from mediocrity to a first- class attraction. A NDY CLYDE, in a curtain-raising two-reel educational comedy called "No More Legs," is as funny as ever and certainly makes it a nundred per cent comedy program. We may as well admit that Andy is our favorite comedian in the talkies, and it's a sorry day when we can't get a good laugh out of his droll antics. tlon of a program—it Is varied, it is new, It brings us the artistry of a distinguished actor like Otis r Skln- ner, the fooler? of such clowns as .Moran and Dressier, the golden voices of two operatic stars like Moore and Tibbetts. What more can anyone ask?^ LONE ROCKERS MOURN DEATH OFJOHNKEER L.OIIQ Rock, Jan. 27 — John KeiT, former resident >of Lone Rock, died nt the home of his daughter, Mrs. C, C. Smith, at Btirt, Friday on his Tfith birthday. Funeral services were held at the Burt Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon and burial was made In the burt cemetery. Mr. Kerr had charge of the Farmers Elevator here for 27 years, and before that had lived 20 years at Bi;rt. This fall, when his health began to fall, he had to quit big position and he and his wife sold their liome. Mrs. Kerr went to live with -her daughter, Mrs. F. M. Stuart In Wauhng-ton, D. C., and Mr. Ken- stayed with his daughter, Mrs. Smith, who cared for him till his death. A large number of Lone Rock people attended the funeral. L. R. Roderick,' N. L. Cotton, Otto Jensen, j. M. Blanchard, George Nyman, and Alex Krueger were pa.ll bearers. •'•'.;••'• , P. T. A. Meets Thursday Evening— A clever program given,, at a Parent-Teachers . meeting was well' attended last Thursday evening. .The meeting opened with songs. Evelyn Behrman spoke on, "How to Teach Geography." This was followed by a violin duet by Milo Tarbell and Irene Whitford, and a poem, "The Lone Rock Bank Robbery," written by James Armstrong, was read by Pres F. E. Genrich. Four girls. Margaret Roderick, Beulah Gladstone, .Ella Ewoldt and Berenyce Roderick, sang, "When Roses Bloom," . followed by a vio lin solo by Irene AVhitford. After the meeting the men chose up sides to play basketball. Coach Manus's team won from Prof. Godfrey's boys, 2:1-12. The next meeting of the P. T. A. will be in five weeks from the last meeting instead of four weeks because of a basketball tournament. L. R. Youth Weds at, Bancroft— Arthur Sprank, son of August Sprank, Bancroft, and Loretta, 'youngest daughter of William O'Donnell, were married, by the Rev. J. D. Fisch at St. John's Catholic church in Bancroft, last Wednesday morning- at 8 o'clock. The best man was William O'Donnell and the bride's attendant was Rosalia Walsh. The bride wore a white crepe • dress with veil and the bridesmaid's dress was rose Canton crepe with hat to match. Mr. Sprank is engaged in the Inn plement business in Lone Rock, and the young couple will make their home here after February 1. Klein Brothers lose Mother— Word received by the William and John Kleins said that their mother, Mrs. Katherine Klein, died at her home in Waterloo. The body was brought to Bancroft Monday for burial. as it has failed before for 40 years. If redistricting is to win, northwest Iowa, •Where the present discrimination is most glaring, will doubtless have to present a united front. And yet northwest Iowa may in the end .-find its hands tied. More than in redistricting w» of northwest Iowa are interested in tax retain. That is the first duty of this general assembly, and all else must be subordinated to it Opvernor Turner and legislators who stand for Wrision will do well to see to it that the ques- tton of senatorial redistricting does not get the Moor before the tax program is out of the way. BOGUS REPLACEMENT BBABS ITS HEAD x IN THE STATE SENATE To Senator Black, of Van Buren county on - Missouri line in southeastern Iowa, goes the "*••! honor of having thrown the first wrench Into the state Income tax ma' senator ha« introduced to permit measure in the House for redistricting for the state senate. Mahaska, Jackson, Marshall, Jasper, and Clayton would lose their individual status, and in their stead would be Black Hawk Webster, Cerro Gordo, and Johnson. There would be 14 one-cqunty districts Polk Woodbury, Linn... Scott, Pottawattamie! Dubuque, Clinton, Wapello. Lee, and Des Moinee counties retaining their present status. Franklin county would be grouped with Wright and Hancock. To mention a few north loVa districts Winneshiek and Fayette would be together; Bremer Butler, and Grundy; Howard, Chickasaw and Floyd; Hardin and Hamilton; Dickinson,' Clay, and Palo Alto; Allamakee and Clayton- Worth Winnebago, and Mitchell, as at present; Kossuth and Emmet; Humboldt and Pocahontas. Without special study, one's impression is that the grouping is logical. Where possible, old associations have been permitted to stand. In this district, for instance, Franklin and Hancock would continue units of the same district [with Lerro Gordo out]. The huge Kossuth district is broken up and all five counties given reasonable representation. At present the 75,000 residents of the five counties are represented by a single spokesman, while Jackson county, with less than 20.000 inhabitants, has a senator to itself This disparity, incidentally, stands as the most commanding argument for redistricting The situation is one which falls only a step or two short of disfranchisement.

T HE NEW MOON, a successful stage operetta, has been transferred to the screen, with Grace Moore, Lawrence Tibbett, and Adolphe Menjou in the leading roles and the production retains the romance and charm which made it a success on Broadway for several seasons. The glorious voices of Miss Moore and Mr. Tibbetts lend themselves easily to the talking screen, and their duet work is especially noteworthy. The story is of little consequence (who attends light operas for their plots?) The scene is Russia, with Moore and Tibbett as the romantic young lovers and the suave Menjou as the villain who plots the hero's death but faite. Adolph has the happy faculty of adjusting himself to such circumstances, as he did in* "Morocco 1 the jilted lover of Marlene Dietrich, and while the characterization may not be the natural one it serves its purpose in the movies. Because, after all, most of us are not far removed from the fairy tale age of happy endings. The theme song is probably as beautiful and as well known as any of the current "radio hits," and is one which it is easy to whistle afterwards, and it therefore rattles around in the brain for weeks. The photography and sound show painstaking direction, and the pitched battle with the mountain bandits is a marvel for realism. The best shot, It seems to us, Is the view up the mountain road, when the victorious hero comes back to his wife, singing "Lover, Come Back to Me." A good Sunday night pic* ture; we hope all the self-appointed critics of the talkies were there. [ANAGBR RICE In t<Tbe con- n the ftbove M !
