Then It was dls- cbvered that It was appearing In almost no papers except those which opposed > the governor ast year. That settled, the governor's friends censed worrying. Governor Turner has lost no prestige among his real friends, nor has he lost any of his fol- owlng. All he has lost ie the false friends who iretended to be for htm after they had been vhlpped at the polls but who deserted him as soon as they found that they could not boss him as they had bossed Hammill. GOVEK3VOK TURIN Kit, GLE>'X HAYXES, AST) THE ROAD QUESTION [Monroe County >"ews.] As wns to he expected, Governor Turner's recent radio address In which lie explained his veto of the state road bond net 1ms brought (lie fire of the Iowa Good Roads association. Glenn Haynes Is (lie chief spokes- mnn of tlic association, anil In a statement last week IIP declared that the Governor failed to tell the truth In defending his veto. The outcome will lie Hint the road question will be paramount In the next political campaign. It is unfortunate that as Important a matter as road building 1 should lie so closely Identified with politics. Rut. that seems Inevitable, and from the start the road building question has been largely a political one. Through the highway program a strong political machine has been built In Iowa and that machine will steam roller Governor Turner If It has a ghost of a show. The sad part of It Is that the machine Is so firmly entrenched that It can actually get away with this steam roller process and make the public like It. Iowa people have wanted good ronds and •they have wanted them as quickly as possible. The desire has been so acute that the eye has been blinded to the back-stage activities which have taken place In connection with the program. Whether the governor -will be able to modify this desire to the point where reason and sanity will prevail remains to be seen. Governor Ham mill started his administration with an unusual degree of conservation In the mafter of roads. He was lambasted up and down the state by the Good Roads association and others, and the outcome was that he capitulated, mounted the driver's seat of the band wagon, and as a result found the invisible government at Ames ready and willing to fight for him, and die for him, if need be. In fact most of them ilM die when Governor Turner got ready to make his new appointments. Iowa has made rapid forward strides In road building. A certain.amount of waste and extravagance would be expected in such an undertaking. The present highway system, as far as primary roads Is concerned, will lie adequate when It is completed. We believe It Is time to begin to divert some interest and attention to the secondary roads. That, we believe, is the purpose of the governor. The Colyum L«t'« Not •• too D—d Scrlotu A PLACE SHOULD HE PROVIDED FOR KOSSUTH COUNTY RELICS The Fort Dodge Messenger reports the open- 1 ing of a local historical.museum in the basement of the public library building and calls It a public treasure house. In this museum have been collected many souvenirs of the past In Webster county. The Messenger says the visitor cannot fail to'be .Impressed with the number and historical value of the exhibits. On two occasions, the last at the time of the Diamond Jubilee, it has been demonstrated that noble collection of reminders of other times can be brought together in Kossuth county. It is a civic shame that no place to store and preserve them has been provided. The Advance is still of the opinion that these mementoes should be brought together in an Asa C. Call Memorial Hall on the site of Judge Call's first cabin in Algona. The times are doubtless not propitious for such an undertaking now, but it should be kept in mind. There should be a place for Kossuth county's remarkable collection of relics before they arc lost through the carelessness of a distant generation.

The Council Bluffs Xon-Parell, militant defender of privilege and wealth, declares: "There is but one safe plan of conducting a government in this country, and that Is the constitutional plan of tnxinpr every dollar alike. They Might as Well Take It and Like It. Iowa Falls Citizen—The tory press is doing much bragging about the defeat'of tax revision during the past session. Well, they just as well keep on thel armor and keep their powder dry. for the contest will be forever on until revision is made. The end is just as certain as two and two make four. The tory crowd will growl and snap, but, like all reactionaryism, ultimate defeat must he faced. So We're Intrepid! Whoda Thunk It? Des Moines Plain Talk—The outstanding big shots against the governor are the Council Bluffs Non-Pareil, the Marshalltown Times-Republican, the Atlantic News-Telegraph and the Davenport Times and Burlington Hawkeye. In defense of the governor come the Webster City Freeman-Journal and a number of northwest Iowa weekly papers led by the intrepid Kossuth County Advance. I It's the Same Old Battle Everywhere. I Emmetsburg Democrat—Governor Turner has the same battle to fight in Iowa that Governor Pinchot, of Pennsylvania, and Governor Roosevelt, of New York, had in their states. Governor La Follette, of Wisconsin; Governor Bryan and Senator Norris, of Nebraska; Senator Walsh, of Montana, and many others are doing their best to promote the cause of just government, but they are bitterly as-sailed by the cohorts of corruption and they are artfully misrepresented by scores of contributors to the daily and weekly publications. Sort o' Left 'em Becalmed, Eh] Knoxville Journal—The supreme court decision on the proposed road bond amendment to the constitution has taken a good deal of wind out of the sails of the fellows who were going to breakfast . right bus? hungry. Dad, are you sure you are on the When do we get to Algona? I'm catching the Infectious enthusiasm, contributes the best performance of hie career. Monroe Owsley and Arthur Lake are both well cast, the former particularly, giving a splendid performance In the cad-role, so often villainously overdone by less- talented- actors. He Is especially good In a drunk scene, as he was in Holiday in the same role; he has the happy faculty of playing such a part with a lightness and finesse which lifts it out of the gutter of vulgarity. Barbara Kent, comparative newcomer in the film world of Algona is excellent as the younger sister of Gloria, and the two look enough alike to carry out the realism of their parts. Miss Kent has a rather high-pitched voice, which detracts somewhat from her effectiveness, but this Is a minor fault which may easily be corrected in future productions. It is quite safe to assume that she will some day take a more conspicuous part in the talkies. Two conspicuously hilarious comedy scenes stand out, one in which a company of grown-ups attempt to buy Ice cream cones, a simple act which they seem unable to bring to a successful consummation, the other a window-breaking episode in which everything breakable Is demolished. Shipmates we get the tang of,salt air and some beautiful "shot*" of battleships and life on the deep. The story Is rather light and the treatment reminiscent of William Haynes; but we hope Robert won't go the eame route as our. William. We attended Shipmates at a fort Dodge theatre,'last row In the balcony, and whatever might be' said of the main floor, let it be noted that the location did not add anything to our enjoyment of the show. That It Is a sparkling comedy, no- one will deny; that It contains flashes of real merit, we must admit: but never, never sit in the lost row of a certain theatre at Fort Dodge if you want to hear anything.' Better still stick to the Call if you want to see and hear the latest talkies at theh best. Even "nigger heaven" Is good here! We will say this, that we have never seen a picture more gorgeously photographed with such sharpness of detail and clearness of focus We doubt however, that fans wll acknowledge Robert Montgomery as a full-fledged' star after this first picture; but at least he Is on his way, and that's something in -these days of a fickle public. .

Then and then only will [sic] we have proper restraint in tax voting and constitutional protection of minorities." an example of smart editorial para- which cannot withstand cold reason- This is graphing ing. beat Dan Turner out of his second term as governor. Our Guess Too. Rut What a Pity! Iowa Falls Citizen—According to Plain Talk, To begin with, there is no constitutional requirement, in the sense the, Non-Pareil implies, that every dollar shall he taxed alike. Again, to accomplish what the Non-Pareil has • in mind would in practice necessitate abandonment of the principle of universal adult suffrage •and the return to substantial property qualifications for the right to vote, and it cannot be assumed that even such a hard-boiled reactionary as the Non-Pareil would stand for that. What the Non-PaveU has in mind is evidently mot a head tax but a tax varying according to Jevles, going up when government expense rises «.nd decreasing as government expense goes jflown. This would not reach the propertyless •voter at all, for he has nothing subject to assessment. The only way to reach the propertyless voter la by way of that anathema of the Non-Pareil, the income tax, hut in practice even the income tax would reach only propertyless voters with Incomes worth taxing. On low incomes the ex- jiense of collection would equal or exceed receipts. As for incomes at the minimum of existence, it is obvious that they cannot be taxed. •Thus as regards the propertyless voter the Non-Pareil's dictum could not but require dls- Iranchisement of a large part of the adult population. The case would be no different as regards a large section of the small-propertied class of -voters. This class cannot be reached by the income tax for the eame reason that the non- propertied voter with a low income cannot be reached. It can only be reached by a levied •tax, but the money difference between low and levies would ordinarily not be enough to such small-propertied taxpayers watchful ~5>f "proper restraint" in {ax-voting. Besides, Vot- •ers in this class are seldom intelligent enough or ••well enough informed to be watchful, to say nothing of having the influence required to •make their complaints receive attention. To reach this class effectively by levy it would lie necessary to make the levies exceedingly high, but this is precisely what the Non-Pareil desires to avoid, for levies must be uniform and the high levies would burden all alike. Thus there is no escape from disfranchisement of this class also if the Non-Pareil'e ideal is to 4>e achieved. But then the same question arises •as concerns the next class above. This class, too, •would not have the same interest in watchful (restraint in the matter of tax-voting that still -higher classes would have. Should this class also H» disfranchised? Where draw the line? Could it logically be drawn anywhere short of the sln- -«le individual or corporation which owns the greatest amount of property subject to levy? This Is doubtless enough to demonstrate the thoughtless absurdity of the Non-Pareil's smart the legal publication paper of Des Moines, a secret meeting has been held and a decision made to defeat Governor Turner for a second term. Plain Talk also says Glenn Hnynes is reported the candidate against Turner. The state is to be organized throughout, etc. Our guess'is that there will be no candidate put up against Turner. If the tory crowd should be so foolish, there will be no paper that will enjoy giving them a trimming more than the Citizen. Yeah, Let 'em Rest Their Rralns a Bit. Knoxville Journal—Notwithstanding that the Good Roads association claimed a monopoly on all worth-while brains, it appears to be weak on constitutional law. Having failed twice in three years to attain supreme court standards in bond amendments, the suggestion may not be out of order that Messrs. Glenn Haynes, Fred White, Cliff Niles, and the amalgamated association of daily editorial writers should pipe down a spell and let someone do the talking about roads and how to finance them who knws about the legal end of the subject. AVoll, Why Not. Draft the Seven Lawyers? "Barney" Allen's Pocahontas Democrat — Because Dan Turner vetoed the so-called enabling act, it appears that Glenn Haynes is going to run against him for the governorship. What this paper wants to know is who is going to run against the six members of the supreme court, with C. C. Clifton busily engaged as the opposition candidate to Attorney General John Fletcher? JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS "Now what do you think you are doing?" I cried To my neighbor with hammer and saw; "You must be devoid of municipal pride, You ought to he stopped by the law. A hen coop like that!—neither tasty nor neat- Why, man, it will be a disgrace to our street! "If I were a Plymouth Rock rooster, I swear That shanty would never house me; No matter how cold, I would brave the night air And roost with my flock in a tree. Don't tackle a job you're unfitted for, man, Ere starting to build, you should first have a plan.

He drove in a nail—though he certainly heard— And whistled, but answered me never a word. At night when I came from the office my doubt Was dispelled, and I saw through the fog, It wasn't a hen coop at all, it turned out He'd builded a house for his dog. And oh, what a beauty it was, I declare! A poet's delight and an artist's despair. "Now what do you think of her?" Humbled, subdued, I took off my hat to the man Who, scorning my censure and impudence rude, Had kept to himself all his plan. The moral? Not all should be answered who ask, Nor children and fools see an unfinished task. Algona, Iowa. —GEORGE H. FREE. Class In Grammar, 'Tenshiin! Correct These Sentences, Please. [Albia Union-Republican.] "Indiscreet," while a ' highly sophisticated comedy abounding in frankly suggestive' situations, has that quality of naive subtlety which raises it above criticism and adds materially to Gloria Swanson's reputation as a clever actress. In a word, it is the best thing she has done, shading the Trespasser by a narrow margin. W E T. C. Sherman from Lewistown, spent two weeks. Even the governor's sizzling utterances In his denunciation of Lieut.-Gov.

In 1928 some publisher got out a book telling all about common despiratory infections. The publisher sent broadcast cards describing the book and mentioned that the term "cri" had been suggested to indicate any such illness in the stage before one can tell just what is developing. In the year 1931, Charlotte Hubbard Presoott in her Book Chat in The Sioux City Journal re- Facts You Should Know About Taxation i>aragraph. The fact is, there is no one plan of taxation which is theoretically perfect. The nearest we can come to it is the ability-to-pay theory, and what the Non-Pareil should have said is, there is In practice but one fair plan of conducting gov- • eminent in this country and that is to tax every man according to his ability to pay. The wealthy and powerful minority can in such case be trusted to bring about such restraint in tax-voting as may be necessary for the rightful protection of Its interests. ^GOVERNOR TURNER'S ALLEGED LOSS OF PRESTICHE AND FOLLOWING "No man ever to occupy the governor's chair at Des Moines lost prestige and following as •rapidly as did Mr. Turner during the recent legislative session," says the Davenport Times. The Times is not original. The same thing been said by scores of other newspapers in the last few weeks. Some editor fathered it •weeks ago and gave inspiration to the rest. It ias now been used so much that it is becoming 1 trite and worn out. 4,t first this avalanche of reiteration worried [By A. Kopperud, V. P. and Treasurer, Omaha Federal Land Bank.] Taxes are a lien ahead of any mortgage securing a loan. If the taxes on a farm are $220 a year, that is equal to 5'/ a % of $4,000. The net effect is the same as if there were a first mortgage against the land for $4,000. Taxes paid on farm property in 1929, according to the United States department of agriculture, were 167 per cent more than in 1914. With taxes at $100 a year, on a farm worth $10,000, a farm loan of $4,166.50 is on the same basis as a loan of $2,775'would be If taxes on the same farm were $267 a year. During the last five years, taxes have taken about 1-3 of the net rent on rented farms. This fact gives some idea of the tajc burden on farm property. It cost the country $140,000,000 to teach 12,000,000 school children in 1890, while in 1925, it cost $2,000,000,000 to teach approximately twice as many children. The expense of operating and maintaining the general departments of Iowa was twice as much per capita in 1928 as it was in 1918. The increase in other states of our district was even higher. It Isn't necessary to be a "calamity howler" to appreciate the fact that the situation is unsound. The greater part of your taxes consists of school, county, and township taxes. Taxation, therefore, is largely a local problem. Real estate represents 45% of the total wealth of the nation but pays 80% of the total tax revenue. Real estate is an easy mark for taxation. It cannot hide; it cannot move away; it is fixed. Personal property Is usually so elusive that most of it escapes taxation. What Is termed a general property tax la In reality a real estate tax. No other form of property suffers more from multiple taxation. Many tax authorities say the inescapable trend for taxes Is to go up. If this be true, justice and expediency both require that tax increases be not imposed upon those who have so far borne the major burden. Many people believe the income tax is a sound basis of taxation and that this form of taxation should at least supplement the general property tax. People having large incomes should be required to pay tbelr proportionate share of taxes. marked parenthetically "If you've noticed the blight which'has come over this column, you can lay it to the cri." I am hoping that some doctor may inadvertently use the term in speech or writing before 1940. Then I'll be ready to retire happy.

E HAVE ALREADY written at some length concerning Marlene Dietrich in Dishonored, and our views have not changed now that we have seen the show at the Call. Marlene sowehow is the composite actress, combining -that rare quality of femininity which finds expression in the famous courtesans of history and in the same gesture ex- halting womanhood to the highest peak of goodness and virtue. A paradox, a sphinx, the eternal Mystery! The genius of Von Sternberg is much more apparent in a second viewing of Dishonored. The transl- j tion of scenes, blending one into the other, sounds a new note in perfectly conceived unity. Under the masters hand, no abrupt fade-outs but a gradual merging. The dramatic finale, the subtle use of the piano to portray rising and waning emotions, the wierd black cat, all tools in the hands of this artist director. And to what uses he puts them all! I F YOU HAPPEN to like _ Frank Fay and Laura La Plante, if you dote on French farces, if you like your humor rather broad and thrown at you in handfuls, perhaps you enjoyed God's Gift to Women— "a delectable cream puff," as some inspired reviewer has dubbed it. If Laura is an actress, then the moon is made of green cheese! Even Joan Blondell flattens out pretty badly in this picture of the devilish Romeo, who romps off with the hearts of a bevy of moviedom's choicest vamps. The old rafters of the Call fairly shook Friday night with the unrestrained laughter of a contented and satisfied audience. In consideration of tender feelings of the fans we refrain from further comment about God's Gift to Woman, except to, say that if you were disappointed it was your own fault; you knew what you were going to see when you bought your tickets at the box-office, and we have no sympathy for you. A short subject, "Merry Christmas," was badly out of season but contained some good laughs and a rather good moral. It ought to be a "wow" about December 23, or possibly on the 25th. We have often wondered why some intrepid soul did not put a bomb under the Merry Christmas idea and get some laughs out of the mailing of Christmas packages.
