Next Sunday at «the church hour the Sunday school ivill give a Rally day program entitled, We Would See Jesus. of maintaining the poor farms of Iowa in 1926 was $1,114,892, of which more than one-third went for salaries. The state auditor's report of 1924 shows the poor farm expenditures to be $1,134,482, of which but $405,000 was spent directly for inmate paupers ... A recent state auditor's report lists 21 Iowa poor farms having 10 or less inmates. These 21 farms cost the taxpayers $808,755, or more than $0,000 for a home for each pauper.' I'V GOT AN IDEA. Why not divide this expense money among the poor devils who live off the taxpayers? Say we give each one of them $1,000. That would keep them nicely a year and we would be rid the necessity of taking care of them. We'd cut out the upkeep. And 'twould mean a further reduction in taxes—something we all hanker after. I N THE CASE of the 24 counties ivItli so few paupers and which spent over $0,000 per pauper — why don't they just give each Inmate $6,000 niul let 'em buy the county farm and run It] Til bet the taxpayers In those 21 counties would vote to do that when they could thus eliminate an annual expense of $808,755. Personally I'd be In favor of cutting: out the poor farm business. It has proved a highly ex- xmslve luxury to take care of the oor and unfortunate. RATHER LET'S FORCE an as- essment of $3.00 per year upon ev- ry man and woman who votes, hen use that for our poor, our community chests, the Reel Cross, and ther charity money drives. That vould take excellent care of all of hese things and save the state, ounties, cities and citizens millions f dollars per year in taxes. Had'ye ver given that a thought? ANOTHER NEWS ITEM— Dr. W. A. Guild, of Chicago, addressing the American Association of Original Surgeons, said: "A man, well educated, was con- tniually short in his books while working for various stores. As he was in jail I removed his appendix. Now he is manager of a large chain store in Chicago."

Why must everything In this country be sacrificed on the altar of commercialism, even unto the Arts? Is it the all-consuming greed for money or the passion for power? Have we no truly great artists who care more for the thing itself than for what It brings in monetary or laudatory gain Like all the good things in life, constant repetition does not serve to whet the appetite for further partaking of the feast. All of which brings us finally to the crux of our story—too much Is too much. BORN TO LOVE Is a story of the World war, capably but not outstandingly acted by a good cast, including Joel McCrea, Paul Cavanaugh, and Constance Bennett as the Important trio. Due to a new sound device which Manager Rice had just installed a few hours before we saw the picture, the already almost perfect recording at the Call was Improved upon, If this Is possible. But it certainly did not Improve the rather unpleasant voice of Constance. Her slightly nasal twange almost ruined the show for us. On the other hand, the mellow easy voices of both Mr. McCrea and Mr. Cavanaugh recorded with pleasing naturalness. BEFORE WE LEAVE Constance may we give both her and the producers a little tip?—"lay off" these free-love themes and give both the little lady and her dear public a break. Bought, The Common Law and Born to Love are too much alike in content of story; we like a hange, don't you? And in closing, ve would like to make one final suggestion; will the fair Constance dndly refrain from caressing a bare vail to indicate intense grief and uffering; of all gestures, this seems o us the most simple and unnatural. To our probably uncultured nind, great emotion is best por- rayed in either sitting down or valking around, certainly not in iawing at a wall. S PER THE COLORED GENT— ' "Dar yoh is." There should be no reason for further crime in this ountry. Cut out the appendix of every man and woman in every penitentiary and jail in this country xnd give 'em their freedom. And hose of suspected criminals running it large, haul 'em into hospitals and perform an appendectomy. Make hristians out of the whole criminally inclined mess. N ( OW I KIs T OAV how come I quit stealing horses and robbing oil stations. I'm appenillxless. Had II cut, out In Jfortli Dakota several years ago. And I left It there. Whether the crime situation has In creased In that state by virtue of my donating a rather busted appen dlx. I don't know. Whether 1 mnkcr to steal or to commit arson any more, I am not certain that the removal of my appendix had any hlng to do with It. But I do know this—since the doctor with 80 inln utes operating 1 separated me from my appendix and $365, I've begun to grow a buy window. Getting fat. L ET'S QUIT FOOLING with Capone- trying to put him in jail Let's hog tie him and remove his inclination to peddle beer. Cut out his appendix and send him to the Fiji islands to do missionary work Might also haul in all of his alleged lieutenants and do a bit of appendix butchering on them — and give 'em jobs janitoring in churches. WONDER AVHY somebody hasn't discovered long' ago that appendixes were tlie cause of this crime wave. Here we've been blaming' wine, women, and song for much of the wickedness ive lire enjoying' these days. And all the time It wasn't liquor. It was the useless little no-pood But all humans carry around Inside of 'em, to catch grape seeds and whatnot, and to act up and make misery ivlthlii us. T HE DOCTOR who made the dis covery is a member of the Wick ersham sub-committee on law en forcement. This may have had much to do with his discovery becoming public at this time, sort of an alib to make the Wickersham committe findings of recent date stand up, sc to speak. THOSE EUGENIE hats which are just now the rage with the pretty ones make a hit with me. Especially those having a white feather. The hats are so constituted that they hang carelessly over one ear, or both ears, or they fit a half head so snugly that hair dressing on the other half may be dispensed with. And they look cute on any woman's head, be she sophomore flapper or grandmother. They can be made at home, providing one of dad's old derbys can be resurrected. Cut the crown off and fit a white feather and there you are. Another method toward ending this darnable depression, as it were. *Pb« Bd Jensen family, of Grand Monn<f. and a daughter, Mrs. S tab- men, fit Pairview, vteited at the "Charles WoU home Sunday. Mrs. A. J. Eason and daughter spent two days last week Mrs. Kaaoirti mother, at Orange Cemetery association will Thuwtfay, October 8, at the c* Hr*. Martha Stone. SOMETHING wrong A with the system which forbids me stepping to my own porch at o'clock Sunday morning to gather in the Sunday paper while wearing my pajamas, and yet two hours late four young ladies can wear thei pajamas openly, above board, bran enly, right on the main drag. Here' something for the 45th general as sembly to look into. Could we ge the attention of the lawmakers cen tered on something of this sort the state might benefit greatly. Lool what the 44th did to us. Girl for Crawfords. Dr. and Mrs. R. H. Crawford, Indianapolis, Ind.. are parents of a girl born last week Wednesday: This 'Js their second child. The Crawfords ed in Algona till last spring when ijjey moved to Indianapolis. his experiments. To those who wliT take these pills a journey back Into history Is guaranteed. Wheeler and Woolsey are the first two victims. We see them as Caesar and Mark Antony. THE STAR WITNESS la a mixture of sob stuff arid gruesome gang murder, killing, and Intimidation of witnesses. But Wheeler and Woolsey are back in Cleopatra's court, pulling a lot of fast ones, some of ancient vintage,' others of the modern type. Some of the wit Is of doubtful quality but the action is fast and furious, ending with a char- lot race through France, the ocean, ind finally ending on Broadway. A radio announcer gives the action of the race at exciting intervals. Every modern Invention Is introduced to lend humor to the situation. THE STAR WITNESS struggles through endless reels, with every form of heart rending scene introduced to show the horrors of gangster rule. Our only suggestion would be that they show the feature first and the comedy, "Anthony and Cleopatra", last, which would at least send you home with a good taste in your mouth. If they show us another gangster picture we are going to quit this job and go to work. [ N THE HANDS of_a less competent director The Smiling Lieu- enant, with the gay sophisticated VTaurice Chevalier, might have been i rather suggestive piece of talking incl singing nonsense. With his usual flare for finesse, however, Di- •ector Lubitsch has given us here a iglit, frothy, French pastry, pleas- ng to both ear and eye. Adapted rom the musical play, The Waltz Dream, by Oscar Strauss, it eclipses .he stage production in every department but chiefly in the fact that t seems to catch the spirit of sophistication which must always be ;he secret of farces of this nature Whether you like the genial, smiling Maurice (and many folks do not) you are almost certain to enjoy this talkie because it is so well done. TO BEGIN WITH the accompanying music by the Paramount orchestra is divine; then the gracious, lovely, brunette Claudette Colbert glides through the sequences like a rippling brook, a summer breeze, or anything that's beautiful and smacks of the aesthetic. There is a lightness, a touch of the exotic, if you please, that strikes both a daring and a pleasing note; it is a departure from the beaten track. It is strictly a picture for adults. A LITTLE INCIDENT which sticks in our memory illustrates the uncanny mastery of Director Lubitsch. After Maurice has taken a wee "nip" towards the end of the picture, he hears the melodious strains of a lively tune issuing from the parlor. He runs down innumerable steps, along almost endless corridors of the palatial home to find his rejuvenated wife playing at the piano. Surprised, amazed, he retraces his steps through the long corridors, up the innumerable steps to his room and takes another look at the bottle. Back again, then, to the room where his wife is playing; another look Into the room, the whole procedure of running is repeated, only this time, instead of a look, another little drink. And the action of the play continues. A very clever scene, deftly handled. THE WORK OF Marlam Hopkins, who reminds us of Zaza Pitts, is noteworthy and she does wonders with an exceedingly difficult part. A good night's entertainment any way you look at it. LAKOTANS HEAR BISHOP SPEAK AT CONFERENCE Lakota, Sept. 29—The George and H. D. Mussmans, the A.' Q. Smiths, the Harry Moes, the Roland Smiths, the G. F. Torines and the Oran O'Keefes attended tlie Northwest Iowa Conference of the Methodist church at Estherville Sunday, and heard an interesting sermon. Bishop Titus Lowe, <of Portland, Ore., who presided over the sessions last week, preached on Mountain Peace. His text was • taken from •Psalms 121; 1 and 2—"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my health. My help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and Earth." Jn the sermon Bishop Lowe used Mt. Linai as the foundation of the moral universe, and among other things quoted the words, "The nation that forgets God, passes." Thp Mt. of Olives was the mount of Sincerity, as Gethsemane was the acid test, and Mt. Calvary was for inspiration and love. All three are needed if we meet God's requirements. Bishop Lowe was at one time pastor of a church at Cedar Falls. 'He was born in Pennsylvania, where he could see the mountains from the windows of his home. Wlllnrd Mell at Monilngslde— Willard Bell, formerly of Lakota, who has been attending Asbury college at Wllmore, Ky., 3 years, has entered Morningside college for this work. He was married last summer and both he and his wife will take college work. He will serve the church at Sloan, 20 miles south of Sioux City, as student pastor the coming year, and will live in Sioux City. The Bells spent week before last with the Rev. Mr. Liming's, near Aurelia, and the last week at the Conference at Estherville.

In a performance which rivals many of our more pretentious character studies of the silver screen, this notable old stager of the legitimate has earned a place for herself along with Marie Dressier, Polly Moran, and numerous others. Richard Arlen and an unusual cast, help to make this Saturday show one of the bright spots of the week. And what a week it has been. Two four-star pictures and a great Western for the Call this week. No depression in movie circles that we are able to discover. CAUGHT IS FULL of action and full of beautiful outdoor shots; it abounds In tense situations and homely comedy; It is one of the best Saturday pictures that Manager Rice has served his patrons in a "coon's age." Now what do you think of that? T HE STAR WITNESS, with a notable cast Including "Chic 1 (Chas.) Sales, Walter Huston and Frances Starr, shows the gangster from the point of view of the Inno cent public. On the same evening was presented a, short comedy subject entitled "Antony and Cleopatra" done by the Masquers Club of Hollywood, in which were introduced a couple of dozen of screendom's most celebrated actors and actresses. After the drought of good short comedies, this little flapdoodle comes as one of the refreshing bits of talkie entertainment.
