THE CEDAR COUNTY 'HEHEIJvION' AND GOVERNOR TURNER'S COURSE [rliiln Talk, DCS Moinos.] As time passes and the threat of battle has departed, as passions arc cooled and pence reigns In Cedar county, to even the severest critics of Governor Turner who a week ago •were finding 1 fault with the executive because be did not assert his authority and call out the mllllla to awe the farmers who were In open defiance against the state tuberculin tost law, It becomes plain that the governor acted throughout the whole controversy with great commonscnso and good judgment. Sever at any time did the executive recall Ills declaration that the laws of the state must be obeyed. Never at any time did he lose sight of the fact that the dignity and power of his office and of the commonwealth most be preserved. But, never at any time did Governor Turner put 'himself In the role of the braggart or the bully who would have nsed force, with Its danger of tragedy and bloodshed. He did not compromise his principles of good government and of adherence to law, font he did go at the matter In a wholesome, patriotic way that brought obedience and peace in Its wake. "When the governor met the representatives of the farmers at Iowa City ho met them as. a peacemaker, not as a tyrant and dictator. "The state has seen the result of tbat meeting, which Is that the farmers arc now going about the matter of carrying their complaints to the courts to be heard and decided upon In un orderly manner. Now everyone will agree that Governor Turner acted wisely and sanely, and he should receive the commendation of all good citizens. [Wellsburg Herald.] The Herald man has had little use for Dun Turner's Ideas as to Income tax, etc, but In this case (antl-t. b. test) the governor was perfectly justified to try to prevent more trouble If possible. And apparently It was possible. Those Cedar county cows would be (here all the time. They could be tested any time. The men who protested would not run away. They were not criminals. Their protest, futile though It was bound to be, endangered little, and Injured no one. Let us hope that this Is the end of the matter. Fuller Investigation will reveal the fact tbat those behind the excitement were work- Ing less for the farmers themselves than for their own selfish ends. This whole antl-t. b. agitation has been worked up by certain individuals for their own purposes. Let us be glad Governor Turner did not go wild and call out troops and make mutters worse, giving the agitators oven a better chance to stir up trouble. [Iowa Falls Citizen.] The "Wcllsbnrg Herald, commenting on the cry of some papers for force and more force in the Cedar county trouble, says that Governor Turner used good judgment In avoiding the use of the militia. The Herald Is certainly right. Force Is seldom a good weapon to use. The farmers of Cedar county know that laws must bo enforced or should be enforced or removed from the statute booh. Given time to reflect, they are bound to arrive at the conclusion that law and order must prevail and that their method of procedure is to change the law. To use clubs, gang, bayonets on your neighbors Is largely crude barbarity. The Governor did the right thin? in adjusting the trouble, even If some concessions did have to be made. It Is so easy for some wise guy In a newspaper office, who violates some law every week In the year, to cry for force against some other Uw violator. mileage be, paved. This was the flimsy excuse for the Clifton attempt to hang crepe on the governor by making readers believe that Turner had vetoed a bill calling for less paving than the House bill called for. ' • • The News-Herald's comment Illustrates another angle of the confusion created by the Clifton stories, particularly that of last week Monday. The Spencer writer acquired the impression that the Senate confirmed only what had already been agreed upon in- the House. You have to consult the Associated Press report to get the truth, and here it Is: Originally the bill was drafted in the House as a method of liquidating county road bonds should the state bond issue fail. The Senate, however, rewrote the measure entirely, removing that purpose .and substituting a proposal to place all towns of 150 population on the primary road system ,to provide for future surfacing, and to apportion the funds by counties for construction and maintenance. As the goveror plainly said in his .message, the veto was the direct result of the Senate's action in making the additional paving mandatory Instead of optional. As he also pointed out, this meant that $50,000,000 more than the $100,000,000 already contemplated would have to be spent on paving. NO one can deny that this was a vital change, and It is significant in this connection that when the question came up In the House whether to override the veto the governor was sustained by a vote of 80 to IS. The so-called "good roads" element Is now engaged in an attempt to fool the people Into blaming the governor for the failure of the enabling act. Let them blame themselves! It is not the governor who is responsible but the greedy "good roads" element, which, not satisfied with the option to pave the additional mileage, sought to tie up the state highway commis- AM.. The Colyum Let's Nat Be Too b—d Seriou* W At the Call Theatre A Review ot the Recent Talkies by T. H. C. P ELL, OF ALL THINGS! Algona has broken right into Susette's column on the Society page of the Des Moines Register. That Is, unless Susette just invented this or it's another deep-laid plot against Governor Turner, or something. Anyway, Juet lamp this from Tuesday's paper and laugh heartily at the notion that there could be social distinctions in this country— . ' Susette:, Please tell me how I may know my social position. I have an anr- bltlon to be successful socially and want to know Just who are my equals socially and who I am equal to socially. I am well qualified to climb high In society for I have had a good start. My husband's • wages are $170 a month. He works for a. concern of good repute, but is not in business for himself. I notice that women . whose husbands also work by the month '. seem to become solf-consclous and even "cringe" when they -come in contact with me, so I feel that my social position Is secure to a certain extent, but want to know just where I am socially.—H., Algona. Answer: In answer to your letter I would say that you are living in a country where there is no social distinction. You can make your position whatever you wish it to be. What you must have, however, to succeed Is a foundation of sincerity for you cannot get anywhere if you are ambitious from purely a social side. Make yourself interesting, kind, charming. Learn to meet people easily and to put them no T HE QUESTION AS TO the best talkie of the season has often troubled us. There was no doubt about Stepping Out — it was the season's worst! In fact, to our knowledge, nothing quite so awful has ever been shown at the Call. The only excuse for perpetrating this vulgar exhibition on Innocent theater goers might be that both Manager Rice the and fact his paved highway into every hamlet in the state, whether or not unforeseen and unforeseeable contingencies in the future made such a course advisable. sion hand and foot and COMPEL it to^buiU^aj matter wno they are, rich and poor alike, at heir ease when they come In contact with you. f the people that you meet and like play cards, hen learn to play too.

You are not now taking the right method with people for no one should feel the necessity to cringe when they come In contact with you. Simplicity and sincerity will get you farther socially than anything else In the world. Opinions of the Editors Ah, AVe Have It! Call Out the Mllltla! Knoxville Express—When Gov. Turner says the law must be enforced, that's a fine sentiment. He should impress it upon the legislature, which doesn't pay any attention to the law requiring reapportionment of the senatorial districts. The legislature Passed the Buck. Monroe County News—The legislature has accomplished something, good, bad, and indifferent, but not what the voters had a right to expect from the campaign promises on which the governor and legislators were elected. Little Men of little Minds, E.lil Mason City Globe-Gazette—The situation can be epitomized by saying that the representatives and senators seemed more interested In the price of dog licenses and marriage licenses than in correcting the inequities of Iowa's taxation system. As Amply Proved by Results. Titonka Topic—That bunk you see printed in a number of daily papers about how Governoi Turner truckled to the so-called "rebels" is the talk of agitators who are bent on causing trouble whenever opportunity affords. The fact I that the Governor followed a wise course. And They're Libeling Turner for That Too. Traer Star-Clipper—It is encouraging to observe that at least a small reduction in publi' expenses is in sight. The legislature has worked hard in efforts to reduce taxes, and has sue cceded in a tew instances. The state levy fron present indications will be cut from eleven to nine mills. This means about $12,000 reduction for Tnma cawity. It means a cut of O7ily two per cent the state over, but it is better than a jump of two as was the case in the last legislature. wife were out of the city. Besides being frKnkly suggestive in theme, word, and action, the piece, was entirely devoid of acting merit. The low-brow, long-legged, Charlotte Greenwood, wde terrible, Leila Hyams worse, arid the rest ; of the cast graded down to zero. We have always been against censorship of: the movies, but this talkie almost convinced us that such a move . Is desirable.' How a thing like it could pass even our liberal National Board of Censorship is a mystery. Serious discussion of Stepping Out would be impossible; let It only be said that a year would be light punishment for the five stars, the producers, and the director of this atrocity. The fly in the ointment is the fact that no fewer than six audiences howled and roared through the show a week ago Sunday, and also, we presume at least two shows Monday. And up to the time of going to press we have heard naught but praise' for the performance which while it affects our own opinion not one whit, at least takes the wind out of our critical sails. there is genius, the supreme artistry of the world's best known and,most loved comedian. ' We could write columns about City Lights—there Is so much to say about it. But competent critics have already done it for us. It only remains to say that patrons of the Call are Indebted to Manager Rice for booking City Lights so early; It is interesting to witness this picture at a time when its producer, director, and leading actor is making a triumphal tour of great European cities, entertained by royalty, feted by kings, and loved by the common people whose cares and tribulations he is attempting to ease.

Albia Unlon-Kepublican—No tears are being bed over the final adjournment of the recent ession of the Iowa legislature. It has been a Dudley Reltl Sells His Osccola -Tribune , and Bids the Brethren Farewell. [Osceola Tribune.] ..._.... To the "reservation" editors, the 'scribe has not got time to pay a proper tribute of formal ength and due respect, and give each member just what is coming to him—eo he puts them all :n a lump and cordially invites the whole bunch to go straight to hell. Of course, if they object to this suggestion and refuse to follow his advice, it does not especially matter as they will all get there just as well in the end by traveling their present crooked, winding circuitous cours- And it will not matter much, either, as they all need a good lesson, since they have failed to listen to the words of truth, wisdom and friendly admonition (ahem!) so often given them by the writer. But it would certainly be a terrible catastrophe for hell—and it might finally break the old devil's heart and put him out of business —as these boys would insist on organizing- a new, livelier, and hotter hell than the old hades. Anyhow, whatever happens to hell and the devil the Tribune loves all the "reservation" boys and wishes them well. And it is with a little mist in the "fur-corner" of his off-eye that the scribe bids the old polecats, prairie dogs, cold- nosed vipers, and big-eared jackasses a final and a fond "goodbye!"RHYMES' OF THE TIMES Again has been broken proud Monarchy's chain, for Progress has humbled the castles o£ Spain.

The story is based on a play David 'Belasco wrote for Mrs. Leslie'Carter In 1901, and the talking version' shows . that styles 'change, even 'In the theater.' Du 'Barry belongs to the red plush and gas-light era. Notwithstanding the fact that the show is gorgeously mounted and effectively acted by a capable cast, including William Farnum and Conrad Nagel, Norma fails to register completely as the fickle mistress of a degenerate king. She lacks the verve, the sex appeal (if me may be pardoned for using this old chestnut), necessary for the part.

THE COI-.OREB CLIFTON STORIES BEAU THE EXPECTED PBUIT As was to be expected, the confused jumble of facts, bias, and misinformation which Mr. Clifton, of the Des Moines Register, sprang on his -readers last week Sunday, Monday, and; Tuesday •relative to the paved roads veto bore s fruit in newspaper comment. The Peterson Patriot gives direct testimony in *he following paragraph: Governor Turner's veto is said to be ftased on his contention that the legislature hod added some 1800 miles to the miles originally proposed. A special writer in The Des Moines Register, of Monday, however, states that the governor Is •wrong, In his contention, as the bill he vetoed really calls for less miles of paving than had been proposed in the first place. Though not acknowledged, it is none the less certain that the following statement in Spen- j**r News-Herald comment was based on the Clifton account: He [the governor] claimed the act provided for 1,800 more miles of paving than the 6,000 miles designated in the constitutional amendment, yet they were added by the House before the bill got to the Senate and had the approval of all administration members in the House. Search of the newspapers of the state wouU -ju> doubt reveal many such examples, but thes avre sufficient to Illustrate how the Clifton stor jfes deceived editors. And if they deceived news qpaper men more or less professionally quallfle •to detect and discount color, prejudice, and mis statement in news stories, what is to be said o ithe chances that scores of thousands of la venders with no training at all eaw throug fhem? Note the Peterson paper's remark that accord ins to Clifton the governor was wrong in hi •contention that the vetoed bill called for les ,9P*Ying than had been proposed to begin with OBvidently Editor Jarnagln took this statement a jt» face value.

Nothing So Prosaic as That, Sac City Sun—The legislature convened with he set purpose of reducing taxes. Apparently, however, such reduction was never to start with nything that concerned that body. ' Mr. 'Farmer, This Is for Yon. Knoxville Express—'The public is too much inclined to play around with shows, concerts, en- ertainments, lodge meetings, farm organization meetings and other pleasant time-killing devices nstead of buckling right down to the more prosaic and less amusing task of watching what is D -oing on and stopping objectionable legislation jefore it has things nailed down. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty — and you needn't ;hink you can get it marked down or on credit. Oh, Please let Mr. CUfton Know! Webster City Freeman-Journal—Gov. Turner was certainly justified in vetoing the road bill. But the Taxes Always Stay Up. Iowa Falls Citizen—December corn Is quoted in Chicago around 55 cents. This would indicate that new corn would sell around 35 or 40 cents this fall. This is not very encouraging. The next move will be a rush into hogs and within a couple of years the bottom will drop out of hog prices. It is a great game this farm- Ing. Then, to help out matters, each farmer votes for a higher protective wall around the country so we cannot possibly sell any of our farm products to other people. Your Point Is Well Taken, Mr. Patriot. Peterson Patriot—The Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune says it cannot see why someone from Northwest Iowa was not named as a member of the newly appointed state fish and game commission. Well now how about D. H. Goeders, of Algona? Algona is in Northwest Iowa and doesn't come so very far from being in the so- called lakes region. Local men who know Mr. Goeders personally say he will make an excellent member of the new commission. The Will Dilg league, of Spencer, has given its full approval of the commission, as named, and if the Spencer fellows are satisfied the rest of us ought to be. Many Representatives Bo Not Represent. Estherville News—We see no reason for criticism of the governor, though there are some who will think that by some magic he should have been able to put his tax revision program through. He had a lot of support in the House and his program had the endorsement of many legislators, but the politics of the assembly was against the governor and in our estimation against the will of the people who elected the governor and 9. majority of the members of both houses.

Written and directed by Chaplin himself at a cost of a cold million and a half, three years in the making, defying the modern trend towards the talkies, the embodiment of an Ideal translated into what he believes to the acme of comedy — witness this latest and greatest effort of the world's most famous clown to achieve fame! Some critics have placed City Lights below Chaplin's other pictures, but to us, it is his masterpiece. Into this fragile piece of whang- doodle, Mr. Chaplin has woven a thread of - golden romance in the person of Virginia Cherill (the, blind flower girl) which holds your interest in an otherwise disconnected comedy like the matchless pattern in a rare oriental rug.

The climax of comedy, curiously enough, would have been impossible without sound; we refer to the swallowing • of the whistle, which, with ever^ cough, shrieks shrilly, stopping taxis and calling a great number of stray dogs into a crowded ballroom. The other high-light- of comedy, the boxing match in which Chaplin keeps the referee always between himself and his murderous opponent, would have been effective without sound. The subtle humor in the situation of the millionaire rounder who recognizes and befriends the tramp Chaplin only when he (the millionaire) is slightly inebriated forms the basic comedy of the show. Into this unique situation are woven countless minor "gags" and ludicrous complications. The pathetic finale marks City Lights a^ one of the Artistic triumphs of motion picture history. The blind girl, her sight restored with the money she has rer •ceived from what she supposes to be a millionaire philanthropist, has opened a floral shop in the city. She awaits her benefactor-lover. Enters now a handsome, richly dressed gentleman. She waits expectantly for him to tell her he is her' Prince Charming, her Dream Lover. As he leaves, after placing, an order, dis- appoin^ment comes into her eyes. At this dramatic moment, Chaplin, the tramp, In rags, appears before the window.
