SENATOR IHIOOKHAHT ON DIVIDINC THE NATIONAL INCOME [Mason City Globe-Gazette.] In discussing- (lie onuses of depression In Mils country at DPS Molnes this -week, Senator .IJroofcliiirt exhibited the duality of think- fair which sets him off from the mine run of Minds. "If Income, were properly/distributed,"; lie said, "there would be no such thing as de- gression." That is an assertion that, to say the least, wmld need proof. In the first place, there Is •• certainty that If there was such a social- -Mlc division as Is proposed by Senator Jteookhart that this national Income would •remain the same. The colonel has It figured that for every Jamlly of five In the United States, there would be an annual Income of approximately SS.750 M the Income were spread evenly. Mr. Brookhart Is careful In his statement «•' the situation. He blames "laws permitting «>jBSt distribution" of wealth. What he •Mans Is that there should be laws compelling even distribution. And that's a form of socialism and communism, the sort of thing K«8Nla Is trying with pathetic results at this very time. The,?Amerlcaii ; . republic • Is grounded -.on 1 the' principle that Incentive for the Individual Is MUspensable, that special reward for special «Hort Is a prime essential. Perhaps that's a'.faulty rule. The deluge of restrictive legislation In recent years would Indicate that such a view has much support. In any situation, the senator will not be endangering his popularity with the average person by suggesting that this average per•on ought to share even up with those who have been able to rise above the masses. It's safe, however, to guess that If a practical plan were evolved to bring about the thing which Mr.; Brookhart urges, he would *e found presenting a plan all his own and opposing the one with a chance of winning. Such Is his record. salary-grabber w^ho should be retired to private Ife. ' " ' So far as has been :0bs.erved, Mr. Anderson lands alone In this -opinion among newspaper men of the district. There may be-others who n the Interest'of local,'aspirants 'for the sen- tor's shoes may work lip considerable Indlgna- ion If the need arises, but at present they are ot vocal. There have, indeed, been hints that Mr. Anderson knows of such an aspirant. The occasion Is not likely to come about. Edlor Seth B. Calry, of the Whlttemore Champion, expresses the common opinion, as follows: "Several of the newspapers of this section of :he state are predicting, as well as advocating .he defeat of Senator George W. Patterson of Hurt in the next election. Their prlnlcipal op- josltlon seems to be based upon the fact that he participated In the 'salary grab' two years ago, nnd that he was one of the senators who jlocked consideration of repeal of that measure .n the last general assembly. They might just as well save their ammunition, as Senator Pat- :erson will be renomlnated and reelected by the people of this district. Any man that could step out and win the nomination from Senator W. J. Breakenrldge In the face of almost insurmountable odds need have no fear of reelection In this district. The majority of people in this section are strongly In favor of the income tax which Senator Patterson has been working on for the last ten years, and It Is our guess that they will return him so that he may make another attempt to secure its passage." And speaking of unfriendly editorial comment in old guard newspapers outside the district, the The Colyum Let** Not B* Too D—d S*rf<nM ALGONA'S POET-PHILOSOPHER w At the Call Theatre A Review of tfce Recent Talkies by T. H, C. t Emmetsburg' Reporter says: A number of Iowa newspapers, who have been, are, and always'will'be, against Senator Patterson, of Burt, are already predicting his defeat in the 1932 election. How little those newspapers know of Senator Patterson's high rating In his home district! He has grown increasingly popular here since his election in 1928, and we doubt if tliere is a man in the district who could even make, a fair showing against him. There is. only one reason why Patterson might not be our next senator from this district. Which is: he might be the next Lieutenant Governor of-Iowa." Nothing the 47th senatorial district could do would please the standpatters of Iowa more than the retirement of Senator Paterson. In such circles the news that he had been dropped would be considered of major Importance. Senator Patterson has been a veritable thorn in the side of every selfishly-motivated Iowa politician throughout his legislative career. ....When. the. work ..ot tax .reform in.Iowa which Senator Patterson undertook alone nine years ago, and-which is now approaching fruition, has been 'completed it will be time, and not before then,..to lay., plans to retire him .in private.life; and it is betraying no secret to say that when that time arrives the Senator himself may.lead the way. [W. Earl Hall In M. C. Globe-Gazette.] 'HILB THERE ARE no Inflexible standards for measuring success In life, many,, yrtth defensible logic, stress the factor of bringing happiness to others. Certainly that Is of greater ultimate Importance than the accumulation of wealth or the attaining of high social or political place, as such. If this measuring stick be proper, a high ranking must be accorded to George H. Free, whose tragic death at Algona a few days ago, following an automobile accident In eastern Iowa while on the way home from an extended trip through the east, has produced profound sadness among his friends. Late In life, after he had passed middle age, at least, Mr. Free discovered In himself what amounted to an absolute genius at converting Into sparkling verse his kindly and interesting musings about life and living. Readers of the Globe-Gazette on occasion have been privileged to road some of his offerings and It was a Globe-Gazette writer who conferred upon, him the title of "North'Iowa's poet laureate." Mr. Free HveXl his life with a smile. His wan ever a kindly outlook.. '"He could 'find an Inter- est'in the every'day"thlngs. His chief delight lay invbrlnglng,. joy to those,about hlm-.To^brlng- sufferlng to others would have been to bring greater suffering to himself, such was the quality of his soul. His railway mall Job was to him a challenge for ,the highest type of service, call- Ing for Intelligence and faithfulness. In all respects, he was the antithesis of the grouch and the grumbler. The loss involved in his tragic death goes far beyond Algona or his Immediate neighborhood. Starting from scratch, he had made himself an outstanding citizen of the state, with rosy promise in his sunset years just ahead of extending his genius and his essential wholesomeness to even broader boundaries. The Globe-Gazette grieves his loss as a contributor and as a friend. D Topics of the Times CUTTING OFF THE PATIENT'S HEAD AVON'T CURE LIVER TROUBLE Speaking before the Grant club at Des Moines 3ast Thursday noon, Senator Brookhart laid iblame for the depression on the unequal distribution of wealth. Every family In the United States, he remarked, would have an annual in- -como of $3750 if the national income were spread out equally. The Senator went on to say that there would ^e no depression if income were properly dls- '•'tributed. Consolidation of wealth, an ec&nomic War in which many fail and few succeed, laws vpermittlng unjust distribution, and similar fact-ors were blamed for the situation In the United •States. He quoted the increase in millionaires »nd their average income to show that there is ••to depression for the millionaire class. The foregoing is taken from a newspaper re- -pbrt which was doubtless in some respects a distortion of his remarks taken as a. whole. The -unthinking reader might, for example, under- •tand that the Senator is for dividing the national income equally, whereas he doubtless en- 'tertalns no such idea. No doubt his statement that if the national income were equally divided «very family would have an income of $3750 was meant merely as an aside in connection with the that too much of the national income now goes to the few. With this interpretation of the Senator's re•marks, seasoned thinkers could agree. They -would, however, be far from agreeing that any -•cheme looking towards an equal distribution of •cither wealth or income would benefit the mass- J «s. To begin with, any such scheme would be futile, for the equality thus achieved would ••carcely last over night. Such is the frailty of Iranian nature that within an exceedingly short The 5-day marriage notice law is an example of fool statutes enacted with a worthy purpose which do not work out as they were Intended to work. In this case the result is that taxpayers will have .to pay what the bridegrooms were wont to pay and the preachers will suffer what amounts to a cut in salary. Large numbers of young people will go out of the state to wed. The next legislature should repeal the law. » Now and then John Hammlll is suggested as Senator Brookhart's opponent in next year's primary election. Not if'John knows himself, and we think he does. The fact is, the enemies of the Senator are helpless, and they know it. Right now the gentleman from Washington promises to romp away with the nomination no matter who is put up against him. With 15c oats and the prospect of 26c corn, who can blame the farmers if they threaten to get into an ugly mood? And what will become of the rest of us, who live on the farmers? If this depression does not begin to loosen up soon, dire things may begin to happen in this country. Opinions of the Editors 1 EAR ALIEN— Since I becarrfe a column fan, a number of years. ( ago,. I. have .marvelled-at, the, interest one learns to feel in fellow contributors, most of whom one doesn't have an opportunity to meet. I might add, though, that the ones I have been privileged to. become acquainted with in- person have not proven a disappointment. ^ I had long hoped to meet Bystander, whom I met in your Colyum, and who I learned . was George H. Free..in real life 1 . Perhaps that •expression "in real life" isn't really applicable, for surely the verses which appeared above the name "Bystander" were as real, as much a part of the man, as the name "George H. Free" was a part of him. Do you recall how Indians are buried with their choice possessions around them? It seems a bit crude, perhaps, but when I read the column which you devoted to Mr. Free I kept seeing him as one'wrapped in treasures which his life had brought forth, and some way the idea of being buried with one's choice possessions didn't seem so crude. Perhaps I express myself poorly in the verses below; sometimes my store of words seems pitifully inadequate— TO GEORGE H. FREE We shall not think of you as shut away Into a cold, unyielding strip of clay, But rather shall we see you, through our tears, Wrapped in the grace you fashioned from the years. Friendship and love, and loyalty and mirth— These leave no crevice for the chill of earth. Oakdale. . —SADIE SEAG-RAVE. THE MAN I THINK gets the most fun out of life, of all close friends, is Frazier Hunt.—O. O. Mclntyre's New York Day by Day. Ah, our suave friend Frazier!—he who got a wagonload of fun out of a visit to Algona and a subsequent magazine story in which he represented this as a "wet" town. tlTB HAVE THE DISTINCTION W (?) of being the only critic, good, bad, or Indifferent, Who did not like Smart Money; afl we read the plowing accounts of this - Edward O. Robinson cinema, success, we wonder, secretly of course, how so many- really., reputable critics could/bo wrong! We still maintain that It was a second rate production, but this week's -Liberty gives It three stars. Now what do you think of that? - , |>OR THE BENEFIT of the fans V who like plenty of action In their talkies we recommend Night Nurse, a fast moving, wise-cracking, entertaining "thriller" that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. We saw the production elsewhere recently, and now we notice It on the Call's August calendar. WE HESITATE to recommend any talkie, due to the diverse tastes of the average movie audience,'but this Is an almost sure-fire bet. Barbara Stanwyck. plays the leading part with a convincing reality which places, her.,In. the front ranks, of emotional actresses, giving the performance a tinge of humor which Is most unusual. Her scenes with the blond Joan Blondell are gems ol rough humor; we couldn't help thinking of what a fast old world we're living In when the two girls disrobed to their undies on two or three occasions. Five years ago, we would have gasped, ten years ago we would have sent for the police; today we merely smile and say, "Oh hum! What's that picture on the wall—I ought to know who painted It." AN OUTSTANDING CAST features this story of night nurses. We mention only Clark Gable, who gives a. splendid account of himself as the rather,-hateful, double-crossing^ c.haf- four" who meets''an untimely' endV.If- our friend Clark Isn't careful, his present popularity will go glimmering,. .n.nlessL the, .producers, give, him a "break" once and awhile and cast him in something -besides a gangster, racketeer, or bad-man part. The public gets fed up on the continual round of crime, and this man Gable is too good an actor to be constantly appearing In this type of picture. Give him a real "human Interest" part. O 1 PINIONS ON WAR TALES are about equally divided among like any movie customers. You either 'em or you don't, .there Isn't middle ground. "Chances" is a well acted, superbly photographed pic- '•pace Let's Not Be Rushed Into This. Sac Sun—After the Spencer fire a number of papers began demanding the complete prohibition of the sale of fireworks to the public. Of course a fire like Spencer had is a bitter lesson, but it should be noted that there were only two deaths from fireworks this Fourth of July, while automobiles and drownings claimed hundreds of lives. The Sun wonders whether fireworks Is such a serious menace as some try to make out. What would a Fourth of July be to the boy without a little fireworks? Ah, Yes—Our Boasted Modern Efficiency! Sioux City Journal—Isn't It a mess this country has made of its social and economic life? of time the bulk of the wealth and in- would again be in the hands of the few mnd In the. end conditions would be precisely the *Bame as before. And that is exactly what would save the situation, for if equal division could be maintained result would be inevitable and inconceivable '•Uaster. All industry would cease, for the ac- '«mmulation and concentration of wealth neces- •ary to maintain it would no longer exist. Anand chaos would reign, and civilization would disappear. The share of the national in•come assigned, to each family would not be "worth a, farthing;, ' ^"Regrettable aa the present scheme of distribution of the national wealth a:ud income may be from some points of view, it is inevitable, and »ot only that but necessary for the well being of *he masses. As regards political rights men may be equal, but they are far from equal in ca- .•pacity for industrial management. For our own vftood we must have our captains of industry and they must have the necessary tools, great iwealth and great income, with which to do their -work. To bring them down to the common level •would be a crime against humanity. To strip 'Henry Ford of his wealth and income would be, *or example, to plunge a million human beings •ttoto misery. This is, of course, not to say that nothing is to Iba attempted towards distribution of a larger chore of the national wealth and income among the masses. Quite the contrary, for advantage »f every means to that end consistent with the ••well being of society as a. whole must be taken. •The ultimate objective is not the good of the captains but of the privates in the ranks. The problem is always to keep the division of benefits among the masses at the utmost point that ft Is possible to achieve without breaking down What a humiliation this must be to the American business men, the legislators, the experts in various lines who proudly had boasted that this was the greatest, most efficient country and civilization the world had ever known. And the question is, why in heaven's name don't we bring order out of all this chaos? Five-Day Marriage Law Already a Failure [Plain Talk, Des Moines.] With that new five-day notice to be given in Iowa by people applying for license to marry not more than three weeks in operation, the fact has developed that marriages are not being reduced, but that a great many couples desiring to wed are trekking over the border to other states where the license clerks and the preachers are ready to serve them as they come. Reports from all sections of the state are that there has been a rapid decline in the marriage license market, a decline running from 60 to 75 per cent as compared with the record of a year ago. GEORGE H. FREE [John W. Carey In Rear Seat.] Death came to George Free as a blessing. Had he survived injuries he suffered in an automobile upset, he would have been a lifelong cripple, and his philosophy of optimism and good cheer as he so often expressed it in lilting rhyme would have been put to severe test. The Rear Seat grieves over the loss of a generous and talented contributor, but it realizes Mr. Free Is better off. George Free accumulated no great wealth and he did not figure often in the headlines but he contributed much to the! joy of living through the medium of wholesome and happy verse. It is a somewhat grewsome coincidence that his last contribution to this column was a poem entitled King Gasoline, with the hazards of automoblling as the climactic thought. A NEWSPAPER MAN is on the verge ot ruin the minute he thinks his "column" is the only thing that keeps the paper alive,—Carl Brown in Atchlson Globe. Mr. Brown runs the Snort column in the Globe and it is a good column. He Is back on the job after a two weeks sojourn In Canada and is experiencing the same shock that every vacationer experiences on his return home when he discovers business has been going on as usual during his absence.—J. W. C. in Rear Seat. Most of us, take ourselyes and our jobs t. d. seriously. And yet, if nobody did that, would not" the world (and incidentally ourselves) be worse off? Isn't It the man who does take his job t. d. seriously who does the kind of work that lifts him head and shoulders above comrades satisfied to do only what they' have to' do to hold down a job at all? I HEREBY SERVE NOTICE that I am not responsible for any grammatical errors made -by Art Brisbane in any columns I write parodying the- system. It may be doubted that there is anything herein with which Senator Brookhart would not, at least in a measure, agree. It is difficult to believe that one of his undoubted abilities and political experience could entertain views much divergent. It is unfortunate, however, that in Ills public utterances, or at least in such as are reported in the press, he is not more restrained. TPo let it be inferred from an ill-considered chance remark that he is for an equal distribution of the national income, and to inveigh •gainst consolidations of wealth as if they were -necessarily inimical to the common weal, is to confuse and mislead the uninformed masses and (promote false theories which if carried Into execution would destroy society. The Senator would be in -better business to rest his case on a •fair statement of the ills of the body politic and wn the prescription of such practical remedies as will cure, not kill, the patient. THE TIME IS NOT YET TO THISK OF BETIBING SENATOR PATTERSON A. L. Anderson, of the Ringsted Dispatch, who Cfltoarlly expresses tolerant and sensible politi- <«*} vlewe but BomeUmeB lets bis prejudices fly MB letter. bos on two or . > occasions assailed Senator Patterson 9« a Without attacking the good intentions of those who brought the new law to the legislature for enactment, its early developments give no hope of the miracle working which was prophesied for it, the miracle of preventing hasty and ill-considered marriages. When a couple have reached the point In their courtship where the ring has been purchased and the marriage agreed upon, it is unreasonable to expect that they will want to give notice of their intention to the world and then wait five days for the final vows to be spoken. Not, at any rate, in these days of good roads and good cars, and the knowledge that Cupid is waiting and ready to greet them at a hundred places just over the border In Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Another bad effect of the law is the depression in the pocketbooks of marrying preachers and justices of the peace, thus bringing to us a new army to march in the ranks of the unemployed and sending capital outside the state which should have been spent and respent at home. We feel like agreeing with the editor of the Atlantic News-Telegraph when he says: "From every angle, it seems to us, the new law Is a farce and defeats its own purpose. Just what good will come out of it we are not able to discern or comprehend. We seem to suffer in this state, as do the people in many other commonwealths, from the tendency of a percentage of our population to insist upon the passage of fool Jaws. 4. much better stroke in the Interest of the common welfare would be a me^ure subjecting .applicants for marriage license to a, physical ejcominatlon an4 a provision that they must toe fit before entering the bonds of wedlock." , his style. This should enlighten especially the critical grammarian who wrote me on paper with green and gold stripes at the left margin. —H. S. M. in Over the Coffee.

[Story City Herald.] The poet laureate of Webster City gets off this one In the Freeman-Journal: ture which uses the background of the World war with startling effectiveness and without letting us In for all the gruesome details so horrible to witness on the screen. After all, what more effective background is conceivable, for any drama than this most stupendous event in the world's history? Whether you believe in war or not, it is grim reality, and if properly handled by a master director like Alan Dwan dis gorges many a tragedy of human heart and soul. YOUNG DOUGLAS FAIRBANK! turns in a masterful performance a one of two brothers who fall in lov with the same girl (Rose Hobart) His 'slightly English accent Is mos effective, and he plays his part wit' a quiet reserve which easily stamp him as a coming star. Rose Hobar is equally effective and show promise of becoming: an actress o great dramatic ability.

THE BATTLE SCENES are stu pendous.^and are gems of artist! beauty. One shot of advancln cavalry Is one of the most awe inspiring spectacles we have wl nessed on the silver screen. Th thundering wagons, • the guns, an the horses, the great flashes of th big Berthas, the rumbling of wheels are here handled with a. touch genius quite typical of Directo DWan. Likewise, the fog scene in London reflect only credit on th man who conceived and execute them.
