STATBHOUSB, Des Moines, Feb. 13—In this letter I shall briefly discuss some of the present sesslbn bllte and my reactions. During the last few weeks I have received numerous letters concerning proposed laws, and discussing them will tend to clarify my position on the measures. Senate File No. 14 Is a bill that deals with licensing car operators The bill has some merits, Inasmuch as the proposed* law prohibits the granting of licenses to persons who have been previously adjudged insane, also idiots, Imbeciles, epi leptlcs, the feeble-minded, etc. When It comes to minor physical defects, ^1 cannot say that I am favorably Impressed. We have at present many drivers whose hearing or vision is slightly Impaired, and xactly. zero. We hope that "when etter comedies are made, Manager Ice will get them." W ELL, WELT,, WELL, here is our old friend, Lyslstrata, back gain in modern dress, played gainst a collegiate backdrop, and loroughly disinfected for juvenile onsumption. Aristophanes' ancient omedy has been renamed Girls Demand Excitement, and the orlglna ramework has been kept "to the extent that girl students will no pet unless the male collegians stop leprivlng them of their communa rights." We sincerely trust that th present inoffensive concoction wil In no wise outrage the morals o any of Call theatre patrons; thi would be a pity. Virginia Cherril, (who play the lead in Charley Chap- Hn's new picture, City Lights) is vere recently appointed to collect lonations here for the destitute In he South.

It is unlikely that under the provisions of the bill these men would be privileged to drlveJ On the other hand our most reckless drivers would easily pass the examination Hence a class of careful drivers would be excluded, and the fellows who are responsible for a large percentage of accidents would not be eliminated. • Licenses for Drivers Opposed; Another feature of, the bill to which I object is a dollar license fee. A car owner already pays for a car license, pays a 3c gas tax, and, If responsible, carries insurance. Now someone comes along and B OT FLY ERADICATION METHODS are being used in several sections of Kossuth county under direction of Farm Bureau, and Iowa State college specialists, with the cooperation of local veterinarians. Carbon bisulphide capsules are given to infected horse. In the horses stomach these form a gas that kills the bots. The files travel only a short distance, and if a. number of farms in the same neighborhood are treated there Is no more bot-fly disease. The treatment is shown in the large picture; the eliminated bots in the circle inset. Irritation and flis- tempec caused by bots are shown- in the small square picture. .

Every car owner has contributed to the construction of our highways, but it we continue to add to the cost of operation, only wealthy people will be able to enjoy auto-riding and good roads. This bill will have to be amended if it commands my sup- Bill-Board Men Heard. A bill which has caused considerable discuseion is House File No. 87, dealing with taxation of billboards and other outdoor advertising. Tuesday afternoon a public hearing was held on this proposal, and it turned out to be a rather heated affair. Usually at hearings of this nature the opponents of desired legislation indulge in arguments which If analyzed closely resolve themselves Into aelflshness. This, however, did not appear to be the case with the billboard men. I think they proved conclusively that the authors of this measure were not thoroughly Informed and that the proposed tax would seriously threaten the existence of. their business. •VERYTHING IX THIS country seems to run in cycles, including the movies. First, we have a deluge of war pictures, then aerial thrillers, and now, it appears, we are in for a siege of gang-stuff. Jack Oakle, in The Gang Buster, is one of the best things he has ever done, which is slight praise indeed, because his latest offerings have been rather tame affairs—witness Sea Legs and Let's Go Native. As a timid youth breaking into the gang racket, he is in his element again, and he plays the role with considerable finesse. The supporting cost and production of the picture leave nothing to be desired. ly, should also be a four-star Liberty selection. The critics are quite agreed, but what about the customers? Are they happy too? Schlelman, o Breda, and Frank Loeffelholzi, o Mt Carmel, came Saturday to spend a few days with Father Loetfelhol/ Barney Capesius, and a group o men from Algona spent a few day at Shenendoah on business last wee returning Saturday. Deane Arndorfer left for Chicag Friday evening. She has been em ployed there during the last tw years. Mrs. Mary Fasbender, Alber Welshaar, and August Heinen spen a few days at Des Moines last week.

The Gang Buster is "packing 'em In" at the Paramount theatre in New York City this week, and the critics are loud in praise of the show. Algona is getting the latest releases at about the same time they are shown in our largest cities, which ought to mean something to Call theatre patrons. The comedy offering in connection with the picture Sunday night was about the flattest attempt at humor we have seen on the screen for many months. A little house-cleaning in the comedy line wouldn't be amiss. T7DDIE CANTOR in "Whoopee desire for the love of an borhood attended, chestra was Roy Johnson of Buffalo Center. Mr Relentlessly, her husband prints "the news," which causes the bank's failure, and she flees sympathetically to her ruined lover's arms, only "to be "snapped" :by reporters. The lover "must die," and George goes to jail after writing .his own story for the paper. Even in prison he finds a zest in life as editor of the Sing-Sing paper. Such self-satisfaction is found only in the'movies. 'This is a good drama. Kay Fran- ington on a farm. Sumlay Night— The local pool hall was robbec Sunday evening between 9 and tt o'clock.

' . CROSS SECRETARY "iMZES WESLEYANS— House File No. 75 relates to Ring- Heck pheasant control and an additional open season upon petition. The bill is similar to the law in force in paet years, but it gives the farmer the.privilege to use the birds for food when they are shot while they are destroying crops. Another change calls for 100 signers instead of 150 when an open season is desired. Salary Grab Bill Debated. House File No. 8 deals with repeal of the expense account measure enacted by the 43rd General Assembly. The bill was referred to the committee on compensation of public officers, of which I am a member. At the second meeting of this committee the matter came up E UUIEJ V^/'Vi^ j.vy-^" --- - r probably marks the high water point of motion pictures up to the present time. It is doubtful that a more completely satisfactory entertainment could be devised. An old theatre-goer might choose George Arliss or Otis Skinner; the muse lover might select Viennese Nights or the New Moon; and the outdoor man, a good Buck Jones western; but here is a combination of such appealing beauty and conspicuous comedy that there is scarcely a person whose verdict will not be a -rent show." And how else are we to judge entertainment? We paid $6.60 for a seat at the Illinois theatre in Chicago a few years ago to see the stage version of Whoopee, and we must honestly ad- ing.
