"If we are to have real relief from present Imrdensome taxes," the statement goes on to say, "we must have men in office who are ein- •cerely sympathetic to and pledged to such a program. I intend to make my campaign on a program that will take some of the existing weight «f taxes off the shoulders of ordinary citizens, -the farmers, workers, and business men who are .now almost hopelessly overloaded. Only when -we have sensible tax relief can we have sound economic recovery." Senator Bennett is quite right—on paper. The 3»ext lieutenant-governor, by means of his right ito pick senate committees, will exercise a commanding influence on tax-relief legislation, and dt certainly will be highly important to have a anan in that office who is sincerely sympathetic Howards and pledged to a program that will re- ^nove some of the present overload *houlders of ordinary citizens. from the But that, brings up the question whether Senator Bennett is the man, and to find out it ie in -order to consult his record in the legislature, '. 3>articularly with reference to the income tax •Mil, which was the major issue in the last session. And unfortunately for the senator, the record is not convincing; on the contrary, the .senate journal (page 1410) reveals that at the -critical moment he deserted the cause and voted ' -with the faction known to be opposed to any-thing in the way of real relief. Readers will recall that in the last session the By his own admission, Mr. Lemley obeyed or ders, rather than'resign,, when Auditor Long told him to falsify a-, county accounting report.

But what's the idea behind sending this book to maybe 5,006 pr more editors? Does he merely want to wise up the newspapers and thus obtain needed .support, or is he playing politics, perhaps with.an idea of cashing in on the resultant 'publicity .(If any) himself? Some editors think that: if the four Brookhart opponents would get together and eliminate all but one, victory in; the'primaries would be all but assured. But ;could a single candidate turn the trick? If there Is a chance at all, .it probably lies in enough-opponents to cut the Brookhart vote to less than 35 per cent and leave the nomination to the state convention. Fair-minded people rejoice to note a more favorable state of public opinion ae regards President Hoover, even though they may not be tor him. From the start the "breaks" have been against him, and as a result he has been and remains the-victim, .of widespread and unreos- ing prejudice. Yet the fact doubtless is, that no other presiddent worked so unceasingly, so Intelligently, so unselfishly in the interest of the common weal. Under fire of world criticism, the Japs seem to be weakening. But what will happen at home if their military caste .for once has to retire without a showing with which to crush criticism?

Such prosperous plays^as Mourning Becomes Electra, Barretts of'WImpWe Street, Left Bank, The Animal Kingdom Brief Moment, and even Cynara are The The Just about ten times worthier, on most critical counts, than such big successes of six or seven years ago as Polly Preferred, Ladles of the Evening,. Dancing, Mothers, Cobra The Nervous Wreck. Abie's Irish Rose, and Lawful Larceny." He con'Cludea: "The moving picture has' dohe Its duty and fulfilled nobly its pur pose. It has proved to be the most constructive critical force the theater has known in our time.

Why, take a chance? dncome tax bill was loaded with a rider calling • for the abolition of local assessors and the sub' istitution of county assessors. This proved to be --the undoing of the bil. The senators opposed to -Teal relief eiezed upon it to defeat the income ^tax. There was widespread opposition to the -county assessor scheme, and the house voted it flown. The senate majority, however, stuck stubbornly to the rider *and at the last moment refused to without it. let the incom* .tax come to a vote Senator Bennett was one of the sen- Opinions of the Editors ators who brought about this impasse, and hay- ang thus made his political bed he must now lie 3n it.

His .record in three sessions of the legislature shows .*hat his sympathies, as might be expected, since "She hails from the largest and richest city in 3Cowa, do not lie with the overburdened com- anonalty. If he becomes lieutenant governor the •committees without whose indorsement it is jpractically impossible to bring bills to a vote •will be packed against everything which prom- 'Sses real relief. Opposed to these candidates is Senator C. F. -Clark, of Cedar Rapids, the only sure hope of •the popular majority which stands solidly be- -«iind Governor Turner and demands not only Jfo Special Session Needed. Forest City Summit—Dan Turner made a wise move when he refused to call a special session to consider the charges against the state auditor. By appointing a commission of three to investigate the charges, the governor had the interest of the public treasury at heart. Please Add a Few Cusswords. Traer Star-Clipper—The fact that the government loans 100 millions to banks at less than one per cent, other millions to ship owners at 3 per cent, and proposes to, loan hundreds of millions to railroads at 4% per cent, but charges farmers 5% per cent, is a discrimination that should not be permitted. As We Were About to Say. Knoxvllle Journal—If the Journal were required to select a president from the list of democratic aspirants it would unhesitatingly choose Speaker Jack Garner. He has demonstrated tha he is a patriot first and a partisan afterward and that he is big enough to place national wel fare above party advantage. Bob and State Auditor Long.

Allen, talking about names, of the married couple who named their first pair of twins—girls—Kate and Duplicate, and the second pair—boys—Peter and Repeater. But, regardless of that we are willing to go along with you in an endorsement '• of, the ban placed on the word "mortician" and all the fancy and funny names you mention, and we suggest that you add to the list a new word—lately coined by the Des 'Moines Register—for no good purpose on or under earth that we can think of. It is the word "corp," meant to be a contraction of the word corporation. They do not pronounce it "core" as Webster does; but they sound it just like "corpse," with the "se" eliminated. As we study the matter we find it is a part of the new vocabulary of some of our super-salesmen, fast workers and fast movers. But we can hardly conceive their time as being" so valuable just now, and trade being what it is, that they cannot restore the omitted "oration" to the new- _ and Sefouled the theater—and so has left the theater free to do Its honest best for the residuum of the white race." Them's harsh words, Mr. Nathan, but for the high purposes of Art, perhaps you are right. Art, the deep appreciation -of Life and the Beauties of life, has seldom been fodder for the masses. The human animal has always been more con T cerned about the trivialities of things, morals, mores, than in the highest development .of genius, chief contributor/to the arts—drama, literature, painting, and sculpture. If moving pictures keep the imbeciles out of legitimate theaters, perhaps after all they are accomplishing some constructive good.

In fact, for sensational anake-up and content there is nothing today •which approaches it; not even the sex magazines are in its class. "Raise less taxes and more hell" is the paper's j^logan, and the sheet certainly lives up to the second half of the couplet. Practically the whole dssue at hand is devoted to scoring Gov. Phil La J?ollette and his political aids. The sheet even 'drags the governor's wife into its net by print- dug a letter written to her by the editor in which uBtte is asked to.say whether she ever buys groceries from a chain store. There are three first-page streamer lines in , one accusing a Madison editor who supports, *tne La Follettes of profiting personally from *adicalism, the other two charging the governor •with having double-crossed voters on chain jfcank bills in the legislature. There arc some 40 "stories" of one- kind and another in the sheet, [Knoxvllle Journal.] Wallace's Farmer quotes a high official of an eastern insurance company as saying: "I think it should be crystal clear to every one that the administration and the bankers are doing all In their power to start an inflationary movement. Of course, the establishment of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation clearly shows that the administration is in favor of inflation. Personally, I am in a position to know that a good many of the bankers here in the east are also very much in favor of inflation, primarily because, on the ba«is of present prices, a good many of their loans will not pay out." Inflation means rising prices just as defla- toin means falling prices. The whole vast power ol the federal vovernment is being exerted to end deflation and bring about inflation.

The banks have been fortified with almost un- .imited credit i>y the new legislation. There is no longer any excuse for any solvent, honestly nanaged bank to fail. This assurance will attract millions of dollars from hiding to the banke where they can be put to work. The insurance companies have been fortified with new credit possibilities in case of an emergency. It is no longer necessary to worry about savings invested in life insurance. Thus is added another bulwark to public confidence in better times.
