SENATOR DICKINSON'S VOTE ON THE RELIEF BILL '',",., "If you are one who has contributed towards the stricken people of South Dakota," says Editor W.- R. Prewitt^'of the Forest City Summit Jn a first-page b<5x, "you • doubtless/feel proud; of -our Senator Dickinson. On the question of granting government aid to South Dakota, Sen- mtor Dickinson voted NO." Editor Prewitt misstates the case In the refer- «nce to "granting government aid to South Da- *ota." The bill in question, introduced by Sen- ,»tor La Follette, proposal aid not for South Da- *ota alone but for the whole country. It contemplated the appropriation of $750,000,000, 'one- to the states to build roads and thus relieve •itmemployment, the other half to the states for direct relief. Fifteen republican senators and-nineteen dem- 7*cratlo senators supported the bill, a total of •S$ senators. Shipstead, of Minnesota, the only senator, also voted for it. Twen- -tjr-flve republican senators and 21 democratic ••enators, a total of 46, defeated it. Aa shown by the line-up, it was not a party -question. In fact; the • only partisanship in- •wolvqd. lay in the republican vote favoring the *ill, fop all the republicans save two or three voted ye.a are known as insurgents, and jiot a single Insurgent voted nay. • Senator '."Brookhart, as was to be expected, stuck with ~<he insurgents, while Senator Dickinson voted •-with'the republican majority, which included •such well known liberals as Couzens and Mc- 'Uary. This was a vicious bill and Senator Dickln- •son's vote against it was quite right. The defeat «t the bill is approved everywhere by sober- minded citizens conversant with public affairs. The bill, in effect, contemplated the dole system of relief which has helped .thrust England ";tnto desperate straits. It would have set a pre- •TCedent for treasury raids threatening if not mchieving national bankruptcy whenever there was public distress. As President Hoover point- •jefr out, it would have utterly destroyed private 'initiative in relief work. Who can fail to see •that if it had been known' that the government •would spend millions in South Dakota there °would be no such tidal wave of contributions as is now moving in that direction from our own -section? Who does not feel that the distribution of these-contributions will necessarily, be 'wisely and economically administered, it being •known that the source of supply is limited? •Who, on the contrary, does not know, human nature being what it is, what extravagance and waste would prevail if what would : seem to be ffree millions from the federal government were mssured? ; This bill would have called for three-fourths -of the whole expense of the federal 'government dust before the World -war. Through taxation it would have burdened people everywhere who •could not afford to give as. well as |people who could afford it. It would have taxed the capacity of a federal treasury already taxed to the point where the rest of the world has begun to Jook askance at the American dollar and withdraw gold' owned overseas. It is time for the American people ;to ,hegin to-understand that the Sederal treasury has limits which must be observed if our national solvency is to be maintained. . , . . I Nothing in thi^ is to.be construed-as opposed to federal relief if and when all other means "have failed.i Bi\t that contingency lias not yet ^arrived. In the pas,t the people have always -responded generously to the appeals of distress ^n both our own country and • abroad, and they doing so now. They always will, and to the limit. This method of relief is safe, sound, and •«s a rule adequate. Besides, as regards starving -Couth Dakota livestock, it is the only practical •tneans of present relief, for long before any gov- "jsrnmental action could be effective nature will •jiave provided as much feed as is required to ^ustain animal life. / our political education, they should bfe Appointees of the governor, &a federal.heads ot departments and other '.officiate are -prudential ap^ polntees. Then the governor could be held''re- sponsible. . Topic* of the Times There has been a Wonderful change for the better in" the Forest City Summit. Always good paper, it is now outstanding. Wlnnebag county owes a debt of gratitude to Senator Dick Inson for having let Editor Prewitt out of th postoffice last summer, and It Is unfortunat that after having so long .enjoyed the Senator' favor Mr. • Prewltt seems not to recognize that i was for the beet. . ; . For nerve worthy of Chicago political gang dom, cast an eye on Lieutenant Governor Me Farlane, who has announced candidacy for rep resentatlve from Blackhawk county. Well, any how, the result In June will give the rest of the state the measure of Waterloo republican vot ers. Taking the county, superintendent out of poll tics has worked well "in Kossuth and there is lit tie or no demand for a return to the old sys tem. Perhaps that is because we have ever sine had a man of ability, efficiency, and sound sense in office.

No wonder the<Senator remains quietly In Washington instead of Betting the Iowa prairie afire with denunciations of Wall street.

Rock Rapids Reporter-;-Tax revisionists are busy in Iowa. They're getting "set" for 1933 and the next session of the legislature. Already the lines are being formed—and if Iowa taxpayers don't have to pay a state income tax in 1934 we're going to be badly mistaken. Speaking of "Ding" for Senator. Estherville V. & R.—The Vindicator, and Republican is of the opinion; that J. N. Darling, of .he Des Moines Register/would be a Ding (er) "or United States senator. Let's get together and elect him! ; They'll Lenrn Something About Farming'. Iowa Falls Citizen—When the life insurance companies and the loan companies own a large share of the farms of Iowa, what will be the fruit? Well, the insurance and loan companies will know more about farming than they once knew. p ; Spring* This on Yoiir Wet Friends. Traer Star-Clipper—You hear the wets howling about the cost of enforcing liquor laws, but they give no figures. Here are some official figures: Cost of enforcement first nine years, $213,179,485; received from fines, penalties, etc., $460,502,792.76; profit to Uncle Sam, 307.76. ?247,323,- "Silly" Is Just the Word for It. Knoxville Journal—How silly an argument it is to say that people with incomes and no property pay their share of the taxes in rent and commodities purchased. Everyone pays taxes in commodities purchased, to some extent, and every home owner knows that it is cheaper to rent than to own a home. How Some Men Escape the Tax Burden [Traer Star-Clipper.] * A resident of Tama county who died a few weeks ago left $5,000 -in cash in his deposit box in a bank. No one knew it was there. In addition, he held numerous notes and mortgages and had $2,pOO on deposit in a bank. And he has not been paying a cent of taxes on any of these many thousands of monies and credits! While farmers have been losing their land, while business men have been struggling to overcome deflation, difficulty in collections, and meeting burdensome taxes, while the day laborer and the widows have been at desperate straits to save modest homes from tax sale, -Authority and dignity to this investigation. He •"£• not only a former governor, but a former in- vtiunbent of Lonp's office. IJia high character known honesty insure a fair and adequate his third term and seeks Investigation. i Long, who te • « fourth, was a. mediocre political misfit to begin ^ith, regardless of the truth or falsity of tho •present charges. He had served in county office »ut was living at Ames and .traveling for a «e< mnty supply house when he became a candi- tdito for auditor. That spring he visited Algona »»id impressed some Algoniantt to whom ho * mded campaign cards as a rather aeedy-look- 4i B candidate for so high an office. Nevertheless ho was nominated and elected, Vd he ha« ever since been an outstanding ex- •»napl6 of the futility of. the primary system as iraj-ds choice of state officials below governor d lieutenant governor. The people know noth- them and vote blindly, and the choice of officials Is thus always occidental. The Is left wide open for. mediocre candidates. naUons for such officials should be re- od from tho primary system and restored to . stftte Conventions. Better yot, though-proij- " Impracticable in view of the present state of man had been enjoying the protection of the government and the city and forcing poor people to pay his share of the costs. He got by, but his heirs must pay the penalty. This man's estate will have to dig up perhaps $1,000 in delinquent taxes and penalties. The estate would probably suffer much more seriously but for the fact that it is not liable for unpaid tax for more than.five years. This is only one of many cases of which the public has little or no knowledge. It is often amazing to discover the extent to which estates have escaped taxation. Men who stand high in the confidence of the public, whose word is never questioned by neighbors and other friends, will deliberately perjure themselves to escape taxation. It seems more like a disease than a habit. They .seem tq think that as others are doing it they are justified. If the public knew of the vast amount of money lying in deposit boxes, in banks on deposit, in beds or old shoes, or under carpets at home, paying no taxes, there would be an Mprislng compared with which the mass meetings now being held in many Iowa counties by tax-payers would be mild zephyrs. Then, too, the pubjio has little idea of the billions invested today in tax-free bonds. This investment wus not so general before the. World war. butfiieople got the habit of buying bonds during that unpleasantness, and it has grown rapidly since, till it has reached a point for tho serious consideration of congress. It is throw- property, now being taxed beyond all reason. ' .Why should one, man with $25,000 invested in bondk escape taxation entirely, while his neighbor with $25.000 invested in land, in merchandise, or in a manufacturing industry contributes $500 to fl.OOO towards the cost ot government enjoyed equally by both? And the wprst of it is that tho farmer owing half or thnee-fourths of the ya,lue of. his land, and the merchant with peraps $5,000 borrowed, ,at the-bank, most pay taxes on tho full' value of their holdings. It would n#tm that the time has popae ,-"'tw ifce abolishment of all laws providing tor'tax-free securities. - , I BAR PAPA—1 found this old letter yester day In an oM book in your den, and 1 would be fun if you would print It in your col umn and surprise mamma. —BOBBY.

Who's Who Among 1 Coljrnmtat*' as Seen •by the w. k. .Ward Barnes. [Inhuman Interest 1 in E. G. Eagle.] 1. Who is J. W. C. (John W. Carey)? He conducts the Human Intercut Column In the Sioux City Journal which he calls "The Bear Seat." He names himself "The Driver." 2. Who is "Jamey," of-Peterson?... . "Jarney" Is Boy Jarnagln, editor and proprl etor of the Peterson Patriot. Ask any railroad man, he can tell yon where Peterson Is.. We can not. . 3. Who is "Gladys of Sioux City",? Gladys Is one of the regular contributors to the Rear Seat. We never saw her, don't know her name, age, whether married or single, dill dren or childless, blonde or brunette. 4. Is there going to be a contributors' banquet and are you going? We hope so. We told friend wife, If they ever iart that banquet wo were going, and she answered, "'We* surely are!" (very heavy on the 'we.") 5. Who is George C. Tucker, sometimes called 'Tuck" ? Mr. Tucker Is one of the owners of the Freeman-Journal at AVebster City and conducts the 'Listening In" column. Any wife would trus lier husband on a party with "Tuck". 6. Who is Mr. . Dewel, sometimes called Alien? He Is the editor and proprietor of the Algona Advance who conducts a versatile column, wide- y read and frequently quoted. His name ougln o be the Pharoah's daughter, because he fount George Patterson In a Ko§suth county swamp and made a politician out of him. • OHN W. CAREY devoted his whole column In the Sioux City Journal dt Wednesday, Feb. 3 to celebrating the Rear Seat's birthday. Mr larey grew up on the Journal, but some ten years ago sought relief from arduous city journalism by retiring to Rock Rapids, where he bought and edited the Reporter. Wherever the veekly newspaper boys of the state foregather .hey still 'tell how surprised and disillusioned he vas to find that he had to toll even harder than Before. And so when the opportunity came he vent back to his first love, and now he winds up his fifth year as editor of one of the best, half dozen newspaper "columns" in the world. As Mr. Carey said by way of celebration, his ambition has been to be honest, clean, sympa- .hetic, cheerful, optimistic, accyrate, calm, tolerant, fair, and unpretentious—a large order, but filled to the letter throughout the five years, And, summing up, he almost stole the Colyum's slogan by saying that he had tried "to avoid taking ourself or the world at large too serious- y." Following which he revealed professional characteristics common among newspaper men vho love their work, grindingly laborious though t be, by remarking: "On our fifth birthday we wouldn't trade our kind of a job for any other kind of a job in the ivorld. Every day we tackle a column we do it with the same anticipation and the same zest and the same assurance tBat we are going to get a lot of fun out of it that a high school boy must feel when he heads into a game of basket- sail, football or baseball.' Not only do we get a thrill out of writing our stuff; we get just ag much of a thrill out of reading it after it gets nto type. We doubt if anywhere there is a more appreciative reader of this column than .his driver himself." Hail to the Rear Seat and its able, kindly driver! May many another birthday be celebrated before its cheerful wit, humor, and philosophy are stilled forever. ROY JARNAGIN remarked the otter week, n his Peterson Patriot, that he didn't like to see women smoking, and Jawn W. Carey quoted Urn, and now Roy is in so bad with Rear Seat female contribs that Ward Barnes is trying to unag Harlan Miller, "Tex" Grantham, this lolyumist, Sadie Seagrave, and Gladys of Sioux 2ity into going to Roy's rescue. Not this col- yumist, Ward. We've enough trouble already with our half dozen female readers. Roy can just Tet out of that scrape his own self. Ah! Auyhow This Is an Example of Neat Sidestepping,^ Colyum of February 4—Well, the idear! He [J. <V. C.] will go right on eliding commas regard- ess, he will! Defying world opinion just like a T ap! . ' J. W. C. in Rear Seat—Tut, tut, Alien. What's a comma between friends? We're quite sure, If Dick and Harry had their way about It, they voiild never allow one to ,come between them. • , WARD BARNES Is letting farmers pay sub-' crlptions to the Eagle Grove Eagle in corn at Oc a bushel, delivered at the elevator. But last week, in hte Inhuman Interest column, he gave notice that he sought subscriber-grown corn mly and didn't want to hear of any more foxy armers going down to tho elevator and just uying it at the current market price for appli- -ation on subscription.

WASTfib A *iOT .0* tech* nicolor footage when they made Manhattan Parade; To be truthful (as we must sometimes), this pro* ductlon stands as the most stupendous "flop" ever recorded in talkies. With the new color process reaching new heights of perfection, they use it to produce a show which has no merit in either plot or beauty. A' ways we say to ourselves — In the nature of a promise—''Soon we'll see an'act of a Broadway production, simply to justify the use of techni- color." , But always, always, disappointment as the thing reels on endlessly to its' uncertain finish 1 It's bad enough to see Winnie Lightner when one Is well,'but to', have to witness her inane attempts at dramatics when one is recovering from influenza—well, that's the essence of a misspent evening. But, curiously, Winnie is less offensive in Manhattan Parade.than usual; it Is elmply the utter uselessness of the thing, the waste, the awful expenditure of time and effort .-to. produce . something that has no justification for existing! ^'The' major action 'takes ptaceMn a coatumer's shop.

But, again, we listen only to the anlQinities of- Dale and Smith, half of the Avon ^Comedy Four. These two Jewish boys are pretty good at that, that is, it,you care for their brand of verbose humor.. And then there's the shy Charles Butterworth, slipping in and out of' the scenes like a guilty ghost, trying his darndest to save .the 'ill-fated show. But it's no use, Charlie, this thing called Manhattan Parade Isn't worth it. M ARIE DRBSSLER is one of the • screen's meet amazing enigmas. Recently acclaimed in fickje Hollywood as the'most' beloved and talented actress in the talkies, She sweep's the boards of popularity with a surehess- which, leaves her younger and more beautiful sisters breath- less'and gasping. On what is this popularity based? Bulky, awkward, homely in features, unprepossessing, in appearance, this fleshy character actress Seems to rise above mere physical handicaps to a secure position as the screen's outstanding,personage. She herself has thrown a little light on-the subject by asserting that she has-passed''the period of life when she is concerned about making a favorable appearance and Is content to portray a part with relentless accuracy, and perhaps that is the 1 secret of her success. In "Emma" she has the ideal role of a noble, self-sacrificing house- keener who rears the children of her master after the death of his wife only to find herself the victim their thoughtlessness and ingratitude. When, as a seemingly fitting rew&Vd for her faithfulness, the master marries her she finds herself in ah even worae predicament. The old man dies, arid she is accused murder. In the end,, vindicated, She goea back to the old 'rut, but In another family. v Tnefe are gobs "and gobs of sobs in "temma' 1 ; it is one of the most lacrymose rolls Marie has ever played. But she comes Up smiling, a willing victim of circunv stance. , Perhaps here Is another secret of her great following. Life Is so full of disappointments and heart-aches that we all love to .see some noble soul, torn and battered by the cruelties of this world, rise above the eordldness and reach a coveted position when one can smile and say, "It's riot a bad worW after all." into "Emma"', Alarie has put not the grand, sweeping gestures of a great actress but her own glowing, vibrant personality, the personality of a woman who knows life and Is willing to flash it across the screen in all its brutal frankness. pARDON US,~~Laurel & Hardy's * first fuU-length'feat^re^ls.abqut the general average of a two-reel comedy stretched and padded-into a six-reel talkie.,.
