; A ., ' r. ;v ;; ; • '^ ^ > >-*• •KTBRED Fo«iii«i SECOND CLASS matter December 31, 1908, at the *wfottlce at AlgonaJ Iowa, act of March 2, 1879. Under A STATE COMMWTEKMAX OS THE PRIMARY SYSTEM •This Is an election year, and In election years It is the fashion among .'editors out of sympathy with the •Acommon people to abuse the prim- -ary nomination system. We had thrown to expect it from many of our >*tandpat exchanges, but it did cut a ijlttle last week to find our usually •enlightened and progressive old college mate, M. L. Curtis, of that ably edited newspaper, the Knoxville Journal, lining up with the retrogressive element in Iowa newspaperdom. •<Baid Mr. Curtis: "The Journal Invites nil the defeat,.%d candidates in Iowa to join hands dn a campaign to repeal the primary :and revert to a system of legalized caucuses and conventions. Incidentally such action would result in *aving $400.000 or $500,000 every two -years and in the restoration of party '.government and party responsibili- ,ty. The prmiary system is not worth ^what it costs." In this period of unrest over government expense the argument that ..the primary is too expensive is likely to be pondered when otherwise it •would receive not even passing notice. The people are in the mood of Esau, •Who, to meet a pressing but temporary need, sold his birthright to Jacob •lor a mess of pottage. Like Esau, '.4hey will awake to their folly If they :ever permit the primary system to be 'abolished. Tt would be well enough indeed for Mr. Curtis and nine out of ten other advocates of repeal if the primary System were abandoned. Too well "they know what would happen. The 3egalized caucus would consist everywhere of a. handful of local poli- .-.ticians, and they would be part of ;,that handful. Every precinct would , r have its local boss or bosses, and the •,'county convention delegation would .fee handpicked from a continuing Jttlynasty of ten to fifteen voters. The conditions of 30 years ago would be •restored, and the ordinary voter with fjio flair for the mechanics of poli- itics would have no more to say concerning the nominees of his party •than the man in the moon. Mr. Cur- .tis began his voting career under -that system, and he knows that this 'statement is not exaggerated. For '•that matter the same thing is still the •Tule, for almost every delegation to a. county convention today is hand- i at a caucus which nobody but hav'e «1ipka a'& waftlrfle ideate, ft Seems a pity tKat an experiment so nobly undertaken should fail, and it is"difficult to understand wh$r. "Not one argument brought against ft has been Valid, eave that enforcement has been halting and it has therefore given rise to the criminal bootlegger. And the answer to 'that argument la that the amendment has not yet had a chance. In national morality no great reform can be made wholly effective while the generation which adopts It remains on the stage. 'For that a new generation which has grown up without having formed the prohibited habit Is required, and in the case of the ISth amendment the new generation is still In the making. Timely Topics Arch JIcFarlane nominated by Black Hawk Republicans for the legislature! And we of Iowa have the gall to point the finger of political shame at Thornpsonism in Chicago and Walkerism in New York City! • • . A Sunday Des Moines Register editorial lectures Governor Roosevelt on 'the Jlayor Walker mess. But Iowa no longer has any business lecturing anybody about the character of public officials. Look at our vote for iLong! The Albia Union-Republican illustrates how far the "clique" newspapers can go ( in oposttion to Governor Turner, who, it remarks, "is not as popular today as he was at the time of the last (1930) primary. And this in view of the fact that his vote two years ago set a record and that his vote this year beat that record! If voters generally had known that Mrs. Miriam Johnson, near Iowa Falls, defeated candidate for retary of agriculture, is the woman who wrote that moving classic on Iowa farming in these times fpr the Sunday D. M. Register last winter, her vote would have been much larger, perhaps enough to nominate. Blackhawk county republicans, nominated the notorious Arch McFarlane, present lieutenant governor, for representative. When voters hoose the 'MacFarlane and' 'Long ype of public officials, let them not omplain if they get what they bargain for. sec- Among the Editors t*t'« Not IM t* DB ARRING ONLY THE Sioux City Journal, ho Iowa newspaper more than George Oallarno's De« Molnes Plain Talk makes Intelligent and highly readable Use of the "exchanges." Quoting in full the Advance's editorial toast of two weeks agoj to the exchanges', he ? says: "Them air's our sentiments, too," and we would add to them the fact that the pleasantest and most helpful part of each week's toll and worry in producing another paper for the "dear public" to praise or find fault with can be summed up with the hours we spend with the 100 or more "exchanges" which come to our desk. We don't know, no editor knows, whether his comments and opinions on his editorial «;age each week are read or. not. The general opinion Is that few people pay any attention to editorial •pages of the newspapers. We think, if that statement is true, that most people are weekly missing some mighty interesting reading and much worth while comment..The editors of the weekly press .of Iowa come near to reflecting all of the best that there is in the hopes, the fears, and the determinations of the people of the state. They are, almost without exception, uncontrolled and unafraid, and their opinions are based on complete understanding of the matters they discuss, whether they be political, financial, agricultural, or—well, "anything under the sun." ' Narrow Escape In Voting Booth at Llrermore. [•Livermore Gazette] The light flashed on and off for" a second as the voters were in their booths marking their ballots A voice from one of the booths, unmistakably that'of Ernie Logue talking to himself: "My gosh—I came d—n near voting for Henry Field!" Extremists Get Nowhere. Traer Star-Clipper People who a few party hacks attend; only now else cares, for the voters have •iheir say at the polls and a place on ••"the delegation is usually an empty •ionor. Under the present system, as fai .ias votes are concerned, the section "man in Knoxville counts for as much -«.s Mr. Curtis in the selection of the '"men who are to govern him. At the ••other extreme the highly educatec rpastor and the superintendent o ^schools, who would seldom dare to b Been at a caucus, have their parts in •naming candidates for public office dn between, in every community, ar scores of lawyers, doctors, dentists Merchants, clerks, laboring 'men -(housewives who would play no par v3n the caucus and convention sys -tern. llr. Curtis knows this. Wi! >ihe stand up and say to his pastor, " .favor a political system of nomina tions for the' men who are to goverr •you in which you shall have n ehare." That, in. effect, is just wha 'Mr. Curtis has said publicly in the paragraph quoted, and he has said •Jt not only to his pastor but to nine out of ten of his other fellow citizens. The caucus and convention system Js, and cannot help but be, a vicious 'scheme of government by the few to the exclusion of the masses. It is •not representative in any true sense »1 the word. It creates a'nd perpet- •uates the boss system from bottom to •top. It is a potent source of political corruption and the tool of men and interests who have axes to grind at ihe expense of the community. The primary system may have its faults .but at least it gives every 9itizen a chance to be heard, 1 ' and frpm that standpoint alone it is worth all it costs. THE PROPOSED KKCALL OF THE 18TH AMENDMENT It looks now as if some sort of back •ward step as regards the ISth •amendment will be written into the Tesolutipns of (both major parties this year. It will' not be an easy matter for either party, for each must take into account a powerfu -dry wing. Perhaps the democratic resolution will go farthest, for the democratic wets have a leadershir •which is lacking in the republicar party. Resolving and doing are, however sometimes widely different things find it remains to be seen whether the resolution of either party will mean ^ anything so far as results are con- "•icerhed. ' That congress is still dr> has been demonstrated In recen votes in both branches; but it waf .significant that in the House i would have taken comparatively few •votes for an about-face. If the resolutions call for action to amend the constitution, and if congress and the president yield, the repeal or modification, as the case may <t>e, will still have a. well-nigh inv passable hurdle to overcome, pro Tided the matter is left to the statei through the legislatures. It takes the vote of three-fourths of the num tier of states to enact an amendment and in view of the fact that a larg< rjiumber of states are bone dry in sen 'timent, it is to be doubted that such : an amendment would ever be adopt t s fO thi vant to reduce teachers' wages fifty }er cent, or county officers' salaries nearly as much, who want all road work stopped, who want all support withdrawn from the state colleges, ,vho would like to shoot the county engineer and the county agent, can not successfully lead the rank and file in any safe movement that will accomplish much. CHARLES B. DRISCOLL, syndicate writer whose stuff appears in the Sioux City Journal, remarked the other day that he and his wife had never had a disagreement, and they middleaged and long married. He didn't say what was the matter with them, but J. W. C., in the Real- Seat, experienced in matrimony (with the same wife), took occasion to remark that if the Driscolls have never quarreled they'i-e .an exceptional couple; not hand-to-hand fights, you understand, but just verbal lashings, the kind ' that are tragic for newlyweds but forgotten in and hour by oldweds. Mr. Carey calls these spells "moments of self- assertion," and he adds: "As for personal experience, we intrude it Case of Sob Sisters, Eh! Rock Rapids Reporter—Martyrdom is a powerful argument in a political campaign. Consider the case of Long. His suspension won him votes—and plenty of them. The rewards, in any sort of a contest, apparently do not always go to the righteous. v^i A Review of the Rec*nt T \ j ^ * -1-lSi-l<«.! t A Blot on the Primaries Albia Union-Republican — Long's vote is one of the most serious indictments of the primary election of the day. It proves beyond doubt that worth or merit doesn't enter into the choice made by the voter. That "Soak the Rich" Argument. Albia News—Mustn't "soak the •ich,"'lest they refuse to do business, ve are told. Also that the ultimate consumer will have to foot the bill, anyway. Well, the riches have al- •eady -been absorbed from the masses and taxing back an equitable proportion is no additional burden on no further than to quote the following verse from a piece we wrote on our own 20th wedding anniversary: We'll not tell that time-honored fable No word ever passed that was cross; But—we still sit around the same table, And we speak as we sip at our sauce. Oil, Mr. Rice, Attenslnm! Here's Clean Picture for Call. [J. AV. C. in S. C. Journal.] So often have we criticized the talking picture folks for inflicting us with pictures that reek of smut and sex, we consider it only fail- that we should report having seen and thoroughly enjoyed at least one picture that is clean, wholesome and healthful from start to finish—without one word, gesture or expression, as far as we can recall, to which the most fastidious person might fairly •take exception. We have 'in • mind The Symphony of Six Million, starring Ricardo Cortez in the part of a young New York doctor. 1 Old MUM lierfleld Broadcasting. [Ad in Iowa Falls Citizen.] [ T'S X SMA.LL WORLto after All,; as the* old < saying gets. "Twenty* five years ago, when we took ,our first long trip, we bought a volume entitled Three Weeks In Burbpe, as a guide for a series of travelogs we had 'promised to write for a lotfal newspaper. The author wad A John U. Hlglnbotham. We made his breezy, easy, swinging style a model for our own. We find now'that our western critic, J. U.

So after a span Of, 26 years our "inspiration" turns put.: to be our "severest critic," This week's mail brought us a delightful letter from the gentleman, verifying these facts. Thanks,' Brother Carey, for introducing us.. B EAUTY AND THE BOSS, from a succesful stage production, The Cfhiirch Mouse, is a sprightly, sophisticated little tidbit, which both makes Ideal hot weather entertainment; and gives the ever alert censors something to worry about. Oh, there's nothing really shocking in this fast- moving farce, unless the sight of feminine underwear and underpinnings takes your breath away. And you won't be much taken back unless you object to the basic theme that you can't mix business and pleasure. Beauty and the (Boss is slow at getting started and it has some dull moments at the end,, but for the most part it keeps up a lively tempo, with plenty of action and snappy dialog. "How did you find American women?" "asks a friend of Charles Butr terworth on his return trip to thte country. "Oh, I used a taxi," was the timid gentleman's naive reply. Warren William,.playin'g,the most polished and graceful part in hlB screen career, is the Boss, !who becomes distracted by' thei, physical charms of a beautiful-stenographer (Marion Doran), discharges her, and hires the plain Marian Marsh, self- styled the Church Mouse. Thereafter all Is eflciency In the office until the innocent and virtuous little secretary makes a trip to Paris, ,buys a new evening gown, and takes a few lessons in love from her rival. Then the fireworks commence, ending in a blaze of osculatory glory, when the "hard hearted" Boss discharges her, only to take her in his arms with a passionate "I love you." The dialog is in keeping with the pace of this production, and you may be a trifle flabbergasted by some of the lines, which, fittingly, are placed in the mouth of a kindly old man, which ought to take out any curse they may ought to 'take out any curse that may be attached to them per se. Charles Butterworth, secretary to j the Boss, plays his usual halting and hesitating role, and is given a ma jority of the comedy "cracks," as when he sees the final "clinch" and remarks dryly, "'Looks like another merger!" Marian Marsh, never a favorite of ours, is well cast and puts more enthusiasm into her part than is her wont. The weakest 'part is Marion Doran, who doesn't quite "come through" in the critical spots. 'She is satisfactory when she lures demurely, but when she comes out torlei summary and:then .take us out .

Then when he visits his wife in prison, he sees light, jumps off a boat, swims ashore, finds the jiidge (Walter Huston), and wrings an acknowledgement of guilt from him, Meanwhile a, supreme judge Is murdered,' and, things are gummed up as suspicion falls on Huston. Folks, we simply can't go on with this. Sufice-lt to say; taxi-husband and wife 'are reunited, and the 'wicked Night Court .becomes as pure : and sanctimonious as .a Sunday * school. If this talkie sets out to'prove anything, It certainly, leaves customers with the secret conviction that each and every .character got just"'what was coming to him.'. They might have hung-the entire cast without a tinge of regret on our part'. This is going to be a long and'hot summer unless we get comedy or farce relief soon. •."'•'.; ' ' - h arid Atft.

Sheridan entertained 44 relatives and friends at a three-course dinner Sunday ;• at their horn in . honor .of their silver wedding anniversary. Out of town guests were P. A. Cummings, daughter , Bertie, Rock Valley; Mr. and Mrs. R. N. Bruer, Osakis, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Jesse • Un- 'derkofler, Britt; and H. Smith, Minneapolis.

S HE 'is industry, and the absorbers will con- tinv/e to absorb whether taxed or not. Graft in Mileage Allowance [Traer Star-Clipper] Mark Thornburg, secretary of agriculture, gave the Star-Clipper a visit the other day. We discussed mileage allowance for cars. Mr. Thornburg has 35 cars. They cover 1,000 to 2,000 miles a month. Most are Fords or Dodges; a few, Reo trucks. For April the total average cost of operating all was 2.5 cents a mile. However, the state does not pay license fees nor carry insurance, and gets back the gas tax, three- fourths of a cent a mile. Add this to 2.5, and we have 3.25 a mile. These figures cover every expense — gas, oil, parts, labor, tires, repair bills, depreciation, and miscellaneaus and each drvler must make regular reports to a cent. Depreciation is figured at ?15 a month for light cars, $40 for the Reos. Mr. Thornburg operates the cars two years then trades them for new, which he con- sides most economical. By -this prac- tic there is almost no expense for repairs, tires or tubes. In the light of these figures it is little less than an outrage to allow public employes seven cents a mile when they furnish their own cars. Let us see what the men employed in the department of agriculture would clear up in a year were they operating their own cars. In April they averaged around 1,500 miles. This means 180,000 miles a year. Were they drawing seven cents they would clear at least three; the official figures indicate their rake-off would be more, or 3.75. This means a. profit of $540^ year^ 91- practically Saw a couple of seersucker suits in the window across the street, I hadn't thought of it for years and years but about 40 years ago I had one of those suits, If I had just kept it I would be right in style ... A depression is a time when people have to'go without things their is a loosely constructed, poorly assembled talkie with a completely, ineffectual presentation of a psychological problem. The weather is becoming too hot to sense the subtlety necessary for their proper showing on the scheen. That James Kirkwood is a sadist is unmistakable: His tendencies find their fullest expression in his kennel of snarling hounds; but instead of a simple fact followed through in a simple manner, we are introduced to bathing beauty contests and Parisian night orgies for apparently, no better reason'than to give the customers their money's worth. Well, as far as we are concerned. forefathers never had We' pick ths vr'ets wSnl a HatlOnal referendum rather than resubmission to "4he states in any form. It seems to be generally agreed <that in case of recall of the 18th amendment the old time saloon is •«ot tp come back. What can be 'Substituted for it that will work out satisfactorily Is a question. -Many ^systems have been tried in the past •Sbut found wanting. Another question Is whether any system which 4oes not make it as easy to secure liquor in any form as It was before "^prohibition will do away with boot•legging.

Men in state service then should have cleared .sufficient to pay for a new car yeai'ly and have $270 left for -spending money. The Star-Clipper began howling about this , mileage allowance two years ago, and never could understand why taxpayers took so little interest in the over-allowance, fixed many years ago, when cars cost nvorie and were serviceable less than half as long, when tires cost: three tirtte.s what they cost today and lasted a third as long,, and when repair 'bills were much more frequent burdens.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE—Walter Aun- zie was arraigned In the court of domestic relations, on complaint of four young women, each of whom alleged that he was the father of her child. Northwood Anchor—And it turns out that Mr. Aunzie was employed in a baby carriage factory. That's a variation of the recent Port Dodge story about the woman who gave birth to triplets, and her hustoand a duplicating machine salesman. Someone has said that the original jokes number only a half dozen; all the rest are variations. L. A. ANDREW, state banking superintendent, addressing a. recent group bankers' meeting at Esther- vllle, said: . "During these times of depression we can be glad that we are Iowa bankers." AVhich demonstrates that when he retires from office Mr, Andrew will have no trouble at all in finding a Job as editor of a "cplumn."

Joan Bennett is a cute little trick though she shows to rather poor advantage in competition with some of the entries, in the International beauty bathing contest, which is apparently an authentic "shot" of a big parade held annually at Atlantii City.
