ATTACK ON 'V MAY ME SCHEME TO SLDETUACK INCOME TAX v [Mnson City. Globe-Gazette.] At the very (line a Cedar Kaplds newspaper, its spokesman for political Interests of that city, Is directing: nn assault as'alnst I Mo University of lown, there emanates from tlie same source another lilttcr attack on I lie state Income tax proposal. For a time It, was confined to tlic local newspaper, but this week Its sponsors succeeded In carrying It t" tile Chicago Tribune, In the form of nn opinionated special news story reflecting the Cedar Itaplils viewpoint. It was headed, "IOWA III' IN A1OIS OVEU GOVEIlNOirS INCOME TAX PLAN." It thus develops that the Cedar Ilaplds clique Is Intent not only on putting the administration of the university Into politics, hut that It Is determined to frustrate the tax program on which (<ov. Pan Turner was ^•elected to office. Control of not only the legislature hut the governor's office appears to be envisaged. That's quite an ambitious program. It's a reasonable guess, however, that Mr. Turner will recognize, If he has not already recognized, that the same hand which Is seeking to gather President Jessup Into Its grip Is reaching In his direction. And for a fair appraisal of the worth of the charges leveled at President Jt-ssup and the university, members of the legislature should acquaint, themselves with charges from the same source against Senator C. F. Clark and others who have done nothing worse than express an opinion that a state Income (ax would help solve Iowa's taxation problem. Whether by design or mere happenstance, the fact remains that no better way could be devised to keep the present legislature from its regular duties—including consideration of the taxation system—than to have its attention diverted to an investigation such as the one contemplated. History may show that these tivo apparently unrelated subjects are much more closely joined In (lie minds and plans of the Cedar Ituplds politicians than Is evident on the surface. one will do. We direct attention to the following excerpt: "I was after no violent opinions from either of the extremes. I dropped In on Editor Dewel to pay a courteous professional call. I found him hospitable and pleasant, but so rabidly and bitterly dry that I decided not to quote him—any more than I-quoted a rabid Wet." Let us not bother to point out that Mr. Hunt begins with the assertion that he was paying this writer a professional call only, and then gives himself away In the: reference to quoting. More Important for the writer's purpose Is the evidently unconscious but dellclously funny assumption that the preacher and the merchant he did quote were Impartial witnesses as compared with the writer. Mr. Hunt may Imagine that since he did not name the preacher and the merchant in his Cosmopolitan story they are unknown, but that Is another ludicrous assumption. Their identity wa.s generally known within a few hours after the issue of the Cosmopolitan carrying Mr. Hunt's article reached Algonti. The preacher, the merchant, and this writer are good friends. With the merchant especially this writer has waged many a wordy but delightful private debate over everything there is to disagree about. It happens, in fact, about once a week, if not twice or thrice—In short, whenever there is opportunity. The writer will freely rest this case with him. Let Mr. Hunt Inquire t>f the merchant whether he (the merchant) is not, on prohibition or anything else, ns violently of one opinion as this writer is of the other. But Mr. Hunt,will not ask. That was not his game. He came here with the intention of working up a story to discredit prohibition, and he was not looking for anything on the other side. Quite the contrary. What he was looking for was opinions that agreed with what he was after. And it was curious that he had not been in town two hours till he knew ' right where to go. Let the rest go. The preacher is no longer here. Nothing herein is intended to reflect on him. The merchant and this writer remain and their debates continue, not without profit to both, let it be hoped. But as to whether this writer is forever a rabid radical and the merchant by comparison always calm, poised, dignified, impartial, and judicial—well, since Mr. Hunt, for good and sufficient reasons, will never try to find out, you might draw your own conclusions. Or if you were to ask, the merchant, we think, would be fair enough to admit that it's a case of six on the one hand and a halt dozen on the other. And KO farewell to the suave Mr. Hunt, and heaven send that he and the preacher and the merchant and this writer may not meet in some superheated region one hundred years from now to compare notes mournfully on how dry we really are! Topics of the Times WOULD IT HELP TO MAKE P1UVATE SCHOOLS PAY TAXES? Under our Iowa law colleges holding real estate (not more than one quarter-section in a township) for endowment purposes are not required to pay tuxes on such lands. Similar provision for encouraging the building up of endowed educational institutions i.s made by laws of most of the states. In tlie eagerness to find new sources of income for the state certain legislators at Des Moines now propose that these holdings shall be taxed, and a bill has been introduced in the present session to put them on the tax lists. This raises the question whether it is better lor the people of Iowa and for the taxpayers to encourage gifts to such institutions by retaining "the present law, as other states do, or whether -it would be better to tax these holdings and make it more difficult for the institutions in Question to build up their endowments. This writer takes the position that it is better to leave the law as it is. Iowa has no adequately endowed institutions such as Northwestern university, Boston university, the University of Southern California, Harvard, Yale, etc. All our institutions, such as Drake university, Grinnell, Morningslde, Coe, Simpson, Cornell, and Parsons are comparatively young schools with only small endowments. Competition with tax-supported institutions is keen, and they are all having a hard struggle for existence. Now, if we make the struggle still more severe, the time is not far off when most, if not •all of these schools will have to close. Already a half dozen have been forced to close, and others are on the brink. When the future of an Institution becomes uncertain, the kind of men who have endowed the great schools of other states hesitate to make contributions towards Its support and endowment. Certainly it is to the great advantage of Iowa Jieople and taxpayers to have endowed Institutions. Who would recommend that the whole program of higher education for future generations be turned over to the state? That would Jnean the closing of the door to men of means who at present or in future might endow our colleges, as they are doing, have done, and will continue to do in other states. At present we have approximately as many young people receiving college training in the private schools as in the state schools. If the (private schools are forced to close we must either double the size of our state schools or build as many more. How would that help the taxpayers of the present or the future? The president of the state university receives a salary of $18,000 a year. This is from four to •*ix times as much as presidents of the private colleges receive. Other costs compare in about the same way. Yet there are thousands of teachers in our public schools who have received all their training in the private colleges, and they *re doing just as efficient work as other teachers who have been trained in state schools Many of the highly paid professors and presidents of the state schools received their training -to private schools. Graduates of Grinnell, Simp- eon, and other private schools have the same rating with the state superintendent of public Instruction and the state board of education as 60 the graduates of state schools. The public having opportunity to see both groups of teachers In action, knows that this is as it should be Since the private schools can do the job for .eo much less money, why should we want to-pu them out of business or discourage their future ifcrowth and development? if it is economy and •.lower taxes that we are after, would it not, in Sact, be better to turn the state's schools over to private control? Of course this is not suggested seriously but by way of illustrating the «rgument. It is estimated that the money which would go into the tax fund if the holdings of the private colleges were taxed is approximately only $100,000 dollars; but the private colleges ar *ow saving the taxpayers of Iowa nearly $6,000 000 annually. In other words, for every dollar wt present remitted in taxes to the colleges on *helr endowment holdings the colleges are sav ing the taxpayers $60! Governor Turner, in recommending an investigation of the state university, seems to have handed the legislature the hot end of a poker. Meanwhile Wie .state board of education doesn't appear to be badly scared. Let's get it over with. Major Smedley D. Butler probably did Indulge too much in the pleasant pastime of shooting' oft bis mouth, and doubtless the apology of this government was according to Hoyle; but at that a lot of us will Indulge privately in a sneaking approval of the bluff old soldier's sentiments. As regards the proposal to force a $25,000,000 relief fund onto tbe Red Cross, we believe that public sentiment is with the president. We do not want the dole system in this country, and we want the Red Cross to remain the great voluntary organization for the relief of distress which it has always been in the past. There would be some sense to an investigation to determine why with wheat so low the price of breadstuffs has not declined. It would be highly practical relief to tbe poor if the foods made from wheat could be cut in half without injury to the baking industry. How an Editor Feels When He Is 7O IMPAETIA1 WBITEE, THE JUDICIAL MERCHANT AND THE BABID EDITOE The suave Mr. Frazler Hunt's Open Forum unication to the Des Moines Sunday Reg- might he attacked from several directions the effort would hardly be worth while and [F. A. Moscrip in Marshalltown T.-R.] If Pepys and Harlan Miller, two notables of •espective periods, may regale their publics with :lose and personal intimacies, some excuse may be found for the garrulity of 70 years. Pepys, it may seem, went a little too deep when he related hat incident where Mrs. Pepys caught him kiss- ng the hired girl. Harlan writes feelingly of his 'right and mental disturbance while the wife ind the medical staff were presenting the world vith a little daughter; an appealing little skit, mon cher Miller, all right, all right, but you'll ;et largely over it by the fourth incident of sim- lar character. So far, however, Harlan has retrained from any such hired girl history as his distinguished predecessor in Pepysing. Maybe the Millers do not keep a hired girl, and if so it may be that Harlan hasn't kissed her—yet, Let speculation cease. All of which leads up to the confession that :his editor—of times disrespectfully referred to Jrom the cane brakes of Sioux City or the alleys of Algona as "Mos"—shakes hands with three scpre and ten today, and feels like talking of it; perhaps as a hen cackles when she has laid an egg, or as the hen's husband advantages himself to broadcast accomplishment with which he has had a minor part. Anyway that's the way of it. Some of us grow garrulous with age; some, like Pepys, et Id omne genus, are born garrulous. When a well preserved, elderly gentleman came downstairs this morning to breakfast, two small framed pictures stood on each side of the loud speaker; one of a little girl of 5, the other of a boy, 7. Such a shy, bashful, beautiful little girl, one hand spread wide on her skirt above the pantalettes of the period; the boy, big-eyed and embarrassed, hung to a chair with one hand. We don't remember that girl till much later in life, but recollection is keen of the lad with his checked waist, relict of one of mother's dresses, and pants that had been carpentered from a pair of dad's razed down to boy size. Pants buttoned to the waist all around;no suspenders then. Children; innocent and all that. "Long, long ago; long ago." Some day Miller and the rest of you newspaper scorpions may be 70 and take a look at the pictures of two intelligent children of a past age, children who were and who still are, though mightily changed by the years and their vicissitudes. Let's hope you stick around that long And that your children write you beautiful letters on that day, and that the bride of nearly 50 years, long since wife an* mother and grandmother, will be there to figure how she can get 70 candles on a single cake; that some neighbor will send a card like this— "Don't reckon the number. But figger the fun You've had through the years Since your birthdays begun." Hey, you septuagenarians, gather 'round! These have been 70 great years to live in. Ain't it the truth? Such wonderful years since you were kids and mother took you to have your picture taken. Like to do it all over again? Well, we dunno about that. Makes us think of Holmes' poem and the man who was to be granted three wish es. He started out by wishing to be a boy again next he would keep his own boys and girls. The angel laughed at the nut. If it had been a Sioux City or Knoxville angel it would have replied "G'wan, y' poor fish! How'd y' look, 7 years old With three daughters, one son, and three grand children? On yer way!" All right, let's be on our way, old kids; there't a lot to see and to admire, and to do yet, foi active old boys of 70. Step on 'er! The Colyum Let's Not Be Too D-d Setlott* W ITH THE GREATEST of pleasure we welcome a trio of able recruits In the campaign against fnashed potatoes. Listen to Roy Jarna- gln, of the Peterson Patriot— "Again we take off our hat to Columnist Allen Dewel, of the Algona Advance. The following appeared In his colyum last week: Ol' Doc Brady's column In the S. C. Journal Friday/was devoted to "The Painless Administration of Spinach." It seems that they reduce it to powder' now and you can take • it in, capsules. And another thing which gives us a fellow feeling for Doc: "If you want to bring out my worst.nature,-Just try to shove a helping of mashed potatoes onto my plate." Which (we'hope) will be duly pondered by Mrs. Alien and all the other misguided women who Insist on robbing spuds of their flavor by mashing them and wasting perfectly good cream. "You are entirely right, Mr. Dewel. Just why the women always Insist on spoiling perfectly, pood boiled potatoes by 'smashing' them Is beyond our poor power to comprehend. But -we have it on you In one way, Mr. Dewel. We have most of the good hostesses of this town trained, Mr. Dewel, and when they have us out for dinner and smash the potatoes they generally save out a couple for us and serve them to us just straight boiled." Nearer home we find this comment in Ray Sperbeck's Line o' Gaff or Two In the Swea 2ity Herald— "The Colyum in the Algona Advance urges a •eform which should find a cordial response in the bosom of many a male; that is, opposition to the practice of the women of spoiling good potatoes by mashing them. Time and again we iave insisted to the girls at our house that good cream and butter were being wasted, and that .be resulting concoction was vapid. Anticlpat- ng epicurean pleasure from a baked spud which trew in Moore & Peterson's or Leslie Hanson's Holds up on old Eagle lake bed, we have stood >y helpless while the potato masher came down cerplunk." And to clinch the argument let Editor Calry, if the Whittemore Champion, be heard— "Some time ago the Colyum conductor in the •Cossuth County Advance urged a reform that vas promptly seconded by Editor Ray Sperbeck, if the Swea City Herald; that is the practice of polling potatoes by mashing them. We add our imen, and the motion is carried unanimously." LET THE READER (if any) first peruse the clipped editorial at the foot of the column at he left. Then, if interested let him read this ittle personal communication from the present vriter under date of a week ago Saturday— "I've just read your editorial—a little classic, n its way. I'm sure that thousands of T.-R. oiks read it, as I did, with moistened eyes and lie kindest of thoughts for the aging (but not iged!) writer.—cantankerous old devil though he be when it comes to an income tax! "I, desire to be among the many who congratulate you most sincerely. And many, many long 'ears yet may you wave and continue to make be T.-R.'s editorial page one of the brightest n Iowa." And now (if still interested) let the reader icruse the reply, received last week Wednes- lay— "Mighty nice of you, and highly appreciated :>y tbe old man. But you are wholly wrong about that "cantankerousness." Instead it is visdom of age and experience seeking to warn mpulsive and flaming youth away from the jitfalls of income and corporation taxes. Just nice fatherly and big brotherly stuff. 'Old men or counsel and young men for war!' Now that ve have concluded not to have any more wars, ind even take the play-guns away from tlie impressionable youth of our colleges, that adage, jroverb.^or axiom should appeal to you young ind impulsive fellers.

This week'a criticism Is In capable, hands during "the .rsgulttr editor's trip to Chicago. We are Indeed sorry to have missed three such outstanding pictures, but we have thoroughly enjoyed reading the following excellent summary of the week's activities .it the Call. See you again next 1 week.—Editor's note. DENNIS, Chris, and P. J. were in Chicago last week, buying, goods. They go in together, they stop at the same hotel, and they come back together. Looks like a conspiracy against ue consumers, but not so. "During business hours," explains Chris, "we are bitter rivals. Sometimes we meet, but we only glare and pass by. After supper, however, it's different. Then we are Lea Trois Mousquetaires come to life again, and you ought to see us—one for all, all for one!" Mrs. Allen and Numerous Other Women About Town, Attenshun! [Ottumwa Courier.] A Texas woman dropped dead at the telephone while discussing club affairs with a friend. The cause of her death is said to be a mystery. Probably stayed at the phone so long she starved to death. [TWO WEEKS AGO]-Mrs. Allen has gone to the city—Hooray! Hooray! —ALIEN P. S. [Last ThursdayJ—So did I — all the dishes being in the kitchen sink! fpHE ROYAL FAMILY of Broad- 1 way fulfills the desire of view- Ing the Intimate life of a family of famous actors. We have seen so much of the glamour of stnge life behind the scenes—rehearsals, after, theater suppers, the actresses never tired, and apparently without any definite home. Here Is a picture of them in their off hours, and what a fascinating group they are. The dominating old .trouper "Fanny" the grandmother (played by Henrietta Grossman), her son, daughter, _and granddaughter; all more or less'im- bued with the desire to be the 'greatest' of all, with their names blazing on Broadway. The situations of each are interesting—the movie idol son, -trying to flee from a breach of promise eult, the daughter a wee bit weary from the routine of the stage, the granddaughter who wavers between love and a stage career, and the old grandmother straining every fibre to continue her stage appearances to the very last moment. Any one of these would make a plot for one whole movie. The play was 'written by Edna Ferber and George Kaufman, and to any theater-goer it Is evident that it depicts the Barrymore family. If any one could see the splendid imitation of John Barrymore by Fredric March and not recognize It as such he simply has not seen any Barrymore pictures. The remarkable thing is he accomplishes the imitation without any apparent make-up. Ina Claire is charming as "Julie". Her telephone conversation with a lover of many years ago has a. subtle appeal that is quite unusual. There are spots where the satire (for the treatment of the characters is satirical) runs a little overtime. However, the movie lives up to its boost, "the picture has everything." . F OR MUSIC LOVERS Viennese Nights is a rare treat. Its lovely melodies haunt one long, long after the show is over. The story of the play is only incidental. The actual, perfect technicolor photography (no more blurs disfiguring facial expressions) is most useful in portraying the myriad beautiful scenes of Old Vienna in 1880, resplendent with elegance, vibrant with the jollity of military camaraderie, where music reigned supreme. Vivicnne Segal's and Walter Pidgeon's voices are beautifully recorded, and the lyrical love song begins to weave itself into one's soul as it is sung, played, and sung again, and finally we hear an S5-piece symphony orchestra play it. It is always "a revelation to us when we hear the melodious tones of the violins,' violas, and cellos of a symphony and suddenly realize that music speaks a language all can understand. That is why "Viennese Nights" is so powerful, for the effect of music is far more penetrating than any of the arts; it expresses passions and' thoughts that are above and below the farthest reaches of words or pictures. And so we were positively affected by its songs and symphonic arrangements. Oftentimes a feature picture is spoilt a little by the preceding short reels. But Pathe's recording .of Madame. Schumann-Heinck's singing class, with her own rendition of an old favorite German folk-song, was a charming fore-runner. D ID 'THE TITLE "Inspiration" make you expect great things of Garbo? We were a trifle disappointed, but were forced to admit she still has that 'evasive something' that forces one to admire her. The story has a Parisian setting. Garbo, a model, has been a source of 'Inspiration' for many artists and writers, but wearies of her banal experiences. Siren-like she chooses Robert Montgomery, a 24-year-old, serious, prudish-blinded young man, hoping she must never disillusion him. Her fight for his true love following his realization of her past is forceful. There is Incongruity in her renunciation at the close, sacrificing her own happiness in order that he may marry a childhood sweetheart. This may be artistically correct, but somehow we should have liked to see her "follow through." It's a picture of moods, and possibly we were not in the proper mood for its full appreciation. At present there Is much argument about the capabilities of Garbo vs. Dietrich. Weghing "Inspiration" against "Morocco," certainly Dietrich is in the lead, for her personality is not limited to grey tones but sparkles also in the sunlight, and her enunciation and voice are far superior to that of Garbo. O F ALL WESTERNS, The Painted desert is the slowest-moving I ever viewed; the actors are so deliberate in conversation that you anticipate almost every word and action. And as far as "fighting men—daring women" are concerned we failed to see anything but a. man holding a good pistol. And one woman suffices for the fearless female. The 20 mule teams and the cattle stampede are good bits . of photography, but give us a little more action for our westerns. We like 'em best thataway! Wessels are Settled. Mr. and Mrs. Claud O. Wesse wrote last week to have their Ad vance send to Yuba City, Calif. Mrs Wessel, who was county home dem onstration agent here prior to Janu ary 1, and her husband, who was a cow-tester here, are starting chicken ranch in California. METHODIST, 0. V.
