No one else on earth Is more able. The writer of this Hem in one of the guys that should pay. We have no sympathy with papers like the Times-He- publican and followers of this line of thought In their shirking their duty. "Why shouldn't the strong pay and the weak be fa- ToredJ Will somebody answer? House and Senate over the assessor bill arid the Income tax bill. If they are not responsible, at least they are delighted to see such dissension. All Is grist that comes to their mill. If the reactionaries win this battle and tax reform goes over for another two years, the legislators responsible for the fiasco are going to hear from It. Governor Turner Is not the man to be balked so easily. If necessary he will again stump the state and appeal to the voters to elect legislators who will stand by him In the session of 1!)33. It will be well for every legislator who wants to be reelected In 1932 to get thoroughly into his thinking the fact that he is going to be called to account for his»record this winter. HEBE'S SOMETHING WORTH WHILE TO INVESTIGATE AT THE "U" The following dispatch from Iowa City appeared in last Thursday's afternoon dailies: "A raise in scholarship requirements for Uni- •versity of Iowa students was announced here Monday by Herbert C. Dorcas, registrar. The •change will become effective next September. "Students entering the university next fall will ••Tie required to have a 'two point' or a 'C' average if they are to graduate four years later. "The average now required for graduation is one .•and one-half points, half way between C and D grades. "This will mean that' a total of 2JO grade •points will be necessary for obtaining a bachelor's degree, whereas 180 have previously been required." If the legislature desires to do something -worth while, let it call off the present investigation of the university and instruct the com- :mittee to go back to Iowa City and find out •what is happening in the way of raising scholar- tship requirements and why. It will be noted that the average now required lor graduation Is 1% points, but under the new iruling It will be two points. It Is said that the average at present achieved by students is 1.9 .•points, or .4 of a point above the required average. In other words, under the new ruling the •present average student will be shut off from •igraduatlon. Kor some years the university has been grad- •nally tightening up on requirements for graduation. The tendency had been marked In the liberal arts college even before the latest announcement, but it is in the allied colleges that it has attracted most attention. To enter the medical college now a liberal arts degree Is required. A few years ago the college of dentistry ^adopted a requirement of one year of llbera *rta. .. .. A good many observers view thte tendency •towards ever higher requirements at Iowa City •with grave doubts, not to say Increasing Indignation. Who are these average boys and girlb •whom the university authorities propose to ellm- 4nate? They are the sons and daughters of average parents who make up 99 per cent of the population. It is average people who own the •wdverslty. How does It come about that the -university has power to deny Its facilities to the average children of the average people who -own It?. What the university authorities, whether they Icnow it or not, are aiming at is a school reserved for the rich and the brilliant. It takes nine years now to make a .doctor, and none but •rich parents can afford it. It takes five years -to make a dentist and six years to make a lawyer. How many of them will do better than the ^doctors of 40 years ago who were graduated in •*our years, or the dentist and lawyers in two years? Not enough to count. It is time that the state board of education, or 'toiling that, the legislature, called a halt to this •program. The university was not established to -educate the rich and the brilliant alone. Its •function is not to build up a scholastic aristo- •cracy but to take the common or garden varietj of student and give him as good an education as 3>e can absorb. This will always be its function as long as It draws its support from the people and whenever its authorities lose sight of tha fact they should be compelled to make room foi •others who will understand that the averag< people who make up nearly the whole population of the state are not paying out their hard- earned money to maintain an institution frorr •which their average eons and daughters arc Tiarred. TAKE EDITORIAL FLINGS AT THE LEGISLATURE WITH PLENTY OF SALT This from the Atlantic News-Telegraph Is an example ot comment found In scores of Iowa newspapers every week: "Whoever heard- of any legislature anywhere proposing to revise taxes in any direction except upward? A great deal of talk Is indulged always about revising taxes in the interest of the taxpaying public, hut It is always Just talk. No one has yet provided for any tax revision in a downward direction and frankly we do not believe anyone ever will." Constant drops of water will wear away granite. Repetition on repetition of such paragraphs as this works Its way into the thinking of readers. Yet most editors toss it off without meaning much i£ anything. What they are Intent upon is filling space with smart sayings. The reader doesn't know that, and so too often falls for it. If, for example, the News-Telegraph's writer vcre asked to cite off hand cases justifying his omment, how many'could he name? Two or tiree, maybe, but not enough to count. Nor ould he fare much better if he looked In the ooks. The legislature does create unnecessary xpense now and^then, but If it were all saved it vould not show up on anybody's tax receipt. Ninety-nine out of one hundred of such flings t the legislature are wholly unjustified. Con- rary to the assumption of smart editors who now little of what goes on in the legislature, it s far from an easy 'matter to get an appropria- ion for anything not absolutely necessary. If he editor of the News-Telegraph does not be- eve this, let him pick some object for which tate money might reasonably be spent and try o lobby it through. The Advance undertakes to redict that he will come away a sadder and a •iser man. LEGISLATORS WHO DEFEAT TAX REFORM WILL BE HELD RESl'OXSIIILE The situation at Des Moines as regards tax re •form has reached the critical stage. Within th •next few days it will be determined whether th^ long and devoted work of the forces supporting the program will be brought to fruition or go for naught. Following last year's overwhelming June am ^November endorsements of the Turner program :it was generally taken for granted that thi winter's legislature would promptly pass an in «ozne tax law and the allied measures recom nnended by the joint House-Senate committe< and the new state board of assessment and re view. Even newspapers which had strenuousl: •opposed the income tax seemed resigned to en mctment of the program.- There Is nothing to indicate a popular chang ol sentiment, but it must be confessed that th present outlook in the legislature is not promte Ing. The forces of reaction have revived an are fighting a last-ditch battle which may en disastrously for tax reform. Every newspaper which was for Smith a yea ago is again filled with misrepresentation of th income tax. It is represented that the industrla development of Iowa Is threatened. Argumen 4§ twisted, facts distorted, ignorant prejudlc aroused. Most absurd of all, the farmer 1 •warned that If the income tox is adopted he wii 4ntve to keep books on every egg and every rad 4sh he eats! Apparently the reactionary newspapers ar (•upported under cover by powerful lobby influ «nces which attack all weak-kneed legislators These influences take advantage of every oppor tikjlty to wreck the Turner program. This ma; Q» 4one in devious ways. It is not too far *t*cied to suspect ujat they are in the back ground of the present disagreement betwee Opinions of the Editors Hut Politicians Must Have Alibis. Sioux City Journal—No man blessed with corn- ion sense ever would suspect that President looyer had the power to bring depression to the ountry.

Of course At the Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T. H. C A T 'LEAST 300 men saw Kiss Me Again, If the recommendations of the 300-odd wives ,and sweet- hearth who saw the show as guests of Mrs. Rice several weeks ngo were followed out. It's a "wow" of a show— all in technicolor, with an elaborate fashion pageant, a gorgeous chorus of comely maidens, tuneful music by the famous Victor Herbert, and an all-star cast, Including the beautiful Bernice Claire, June Collyer, Walter Pigeon, and numerous others. It is one of those entertainments, quite rare, which appeal to men and women alike, If you knb\v what we mean. The musical score is based on the musical comedy, Madamoiselle Modiste, though those who saw the stage version say that the screen production has been altered beyond recognition. However, It makes capital entertainment, and as long as the lilting melodies are 'kept intact it Is rather immaterial whether the story has been changed. ' We have heard several arguments as to the beauty of the two" leading ladles,. June Collyer : and Bernice Claire, but we have always ,been so partial to the Claire sisters (we assume they are sisters — Ina and Bernice) that our judgment In the matter would be quite warped.

' It . is. ,a catchy song she sings, ,wlth a/background of soldiers; In. .fact the entire show is staged on a grand scale, culminating In ' a palace scene which simply "beggars description," if we may be pardoned for iislng this old bromide.

W E HAVE BEEN bemoaning the paucity of piotstif late. Sir Gilbert Parker's The Right of Way is rich'.in dramatic material which director Frank Lloyd seemed unable to handle effectively. After developing the character of Charles "Beauty" Steele, played by Conrad Nagel, with considerable skill for a couple of reels, he suddenly leaves him in a welter of confusing emotions till even the audience wonders what it's all about. Perhaps, after all, there quentlal suffering) for a farce with some merit. Buster Keatpn, that frozen-faced com|c, established a reputation which Will give hie competitors something to shoot at. In fact, his acting of a rather difficult part In what might hove been a vulgar and extremely suggestive French farce, Is a marvel of constrained finesse. He never overplays the role, and yet never misses an opportunity for a laugh. Parlor, Bedroom, • and Bath Is adapted from a stage success of the same name, and again It outdoes its twin, proving that the talking picture has an established place In the world's entertainment. In fact the farce under discussion shows the possibilities tot just this type of fast and furious fun, shifting scenes With a great' deal more rapidity than Is possible In actual flesh production Much credit is due Director Sedg- wlck for Intelligent handling of near-risque spots. Everyone in the cast plays with the same intelligent constraint. The elongated Charlotte Greenwood Is a scream. Her mischievous legs, carrying her. over chairs and davenports with apparent ease, are devoid Of vulgarity. Her vivacious personality Is a direct 'contrast to the drol Keaten, heightening scenes In -which they play opposite each other. Reg inald Denny contributes anothe piece of quiet, substantial acting Even Cliff Edwards as the surprlsei bell-hop Is better than we had eve seen him' before. Call theater fans certainly enjoyed this show, and st did this reviewer. MRS. FRED ANDERSON GOES TO HOSPITAL; HIP BROKE!

A., famed World colyumist who learned the trade under the late !. L. T. s of the Chicago Tribune, took his colyum to another .paper, and in a few days he printed :his one from a favorite contrlb— 'Credit it or no, yesterday a letter was received in what, for want of a better name, may be called the World office to the effect that a suit was about to be brought by a former reader. "I was interested in General Pershlng's story," the letter ran, "and now I'll never know how the war came out'." Legionnaires Give Governor His Big Moment [Chariton Herald-Patriot.] We've always wanted to see one of those "The Thrill That Comes Once in a Life-time" cartoons acted out in real life, and now we are satisfied, for we have seen It. If any greater thrill could come to any man than that which' must have been felt by Governor Dan Turner in Des Moines last Monday night we just can't figure how or where. The governor wae one of the feature speakers at the banquet which closed the annual commanders and adjutants conference of the American Legion in Iowa at Hotel Fort Des Moines and when he was introduced by Department Commander Mauric.e Cahill, of Cedar Rapids, a thousand Legionnaires arose to give him the greatest ovation ever accprded any speaker before a Legion gathering in Iowa. That surely must have given Dan Turner life's greatest thrill. ' ' For several minutes the governor stood amid deafening applause before he was permitted to speak, and when he had finished his address the approving applause was even more intense. We have been attending these conferences for the lost ten years—every one of them—and the then governor has spoken each time, but never yet have we seen any of them accorded such an ovation as that given Dan Turner. With a brilliant recprd in the Spanis}i-Amer- ican war and long service in the national guard Governor Turner can talk the talk of the service men. He knows their problems and he is in hearty accord with their patriotic and humanitarian programs. He }s a friend of the former soldiers, and those boys love Dan Turner. A cane, fashioned .•from an elm of Revolutionary war history, was presented to the governor by Commander Cahili as a token of the esteem in which he is held by the Legionnaires of Iowa With great feeling the governor expressed hie unbounded happiness at being thus honored by his comrades, but even more gratifying must have been that great ovation he received when men of all political faiths rose as one to do honor to this man, nojt •b.e/Mjjse .of -.hlp official position but because ttjeyv,nbVrf!)8J»i*SaA'a comrade and a friend who has" proven his friendship. • AND THAT IF IOWA had not banned these athletes THAT the Institution would not have, obtained readmittance.—Associated Press.

FREE, JAWN W. CAREY borrowed the Colyum's famous poet, George H. Free, Monday. George's stuff is good enough to appear In anybody's col- yum. By the way, have we ever revealed how George came to write verse? George tells it himself. Years ago, maybe along about 1915, he concocted something about the sidewalk bridge over the ravine near the Chubb home. This was his first offense. He brought it to this writer, who commended it highly. And that was what started George on his career. Since then he has written enough poems to fill a book, and for quality we, for one, will rank them with Eddie Guest's—which may or may not be libel! Is method in the director's madness; erhaps there Is such a thing as too -nuch plot. The Right of Way Is rich In promise but exceedingly poor In ful- illment. It leaves you unsatisfied, lungry. • The beautiful Lbretta Young moves in and out of the pic- ure like an empty shadow; there nothing real about her, nothing poignant In her love affair.
