at Algona, towa, aftt of March 2, 1879.-' CLASS 1908, at the under THE SUPREME COURT OST THE SALARY GRAB , The supreme court, In a decision .last week which had been awaited great Interest, held the so- -«alled "salary grab" unconatttu : <tlohal." The case, as brought by <<Jeorge Gallarno, editor of Plain 'Talk, Bes Molnes, had to do only -with claims filed by members oif the •44th general assembly. Mr. Gallarho Bought an Injunction to prevent ,-ipayment of the claims, but the Des Molnos district court denied the ••writ, holding the law constitutional. This decision the supreme court reversed, and since the law was held -unconstitutional, the decision also ^applies to cases pending In the supreme court as regards claims by members of the 43rd general assembly, who passed the act and made It rapply to themselves. Governor Ham- anill approved'the bill, but Governor Turner, on taking office, denounced .it and demanded its repeal. Presumably the state will seek to re- have been Main duty to rev'earthe: »tcii»*r,,if ie 1ft a man ot courage, let hJni announce himself; M nedsitog cow* ardly the fact releases tMe •(*.-». from obligation lo prbtect Mm, even from the consequences of Its bwh indiscretion. ' On returning from Chicago the editor of the G.-G. will find await- Ing him a letter from Senator Patterson demanding the name of -the author of the charges in Question. In the meantime the senator Is necessarily limited to the -following statement; "The legislative 'expense act. did not originate In the Seriate but In the -House, -it was Introduced ;by Representative Hayes, of Dubuiiue. It was amended ih the Senate by Senator Tabor. I made no speech for it whatever. These facts are all available to both the editor of the Globe-Gazette and his anonymous adviser In the published proceedings of the .legislature. It remains only to pit my word against that of this hidden accuser by declaring that I did not either publicly or privately urge anyone in either house to support the measure." COWLES AS DIRECTOR OF THE H, F. C, •President Hoover's appointments have not,always been • happily 'received, but approval'of the selection of Gardner Cowles for membership '*! RVINGTONWED AT CAN ON, S,D, •Irvington, June Schlchtl and Irene 28 — Percy Ramus were married last week Monday afternoon at Canton, S. p., by the Rey^ Mr. Mlnkler, of the Canton Methodist church. They Were accompanied to Canton by Anna, and Bert .Ramus, sister and brother of the bride, and Mrs. Arthur Rlley- The bride Is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Ramus, Lu Verne, and Percy the second son Of Mr. and Mrs. V. J. Schichtl. The couple will live on the V. J. Schlchtl farm. Friends charivarled them last week Monday evening at Bert Sankey's, Galbralth. tut •cover all sums which paid. .-While the supreme court appar- ••ently rendered an unanimous decis- :ton and the justice who wrote the opinion declared that the act was '"palpably" unconstitutional, the case ••was by no means as clear as that, •otherwise good lawyers would not !<have pronounced the act valid, and, •particularly, the district court would ^>ot have held It constitutional. The ^members of the supreme court are, as a rule, themselves only former ••^district court judges whose decisions •the body to which they now belong -more or less often overruled. The ^supreme court, under the law, has the last word, but that is. all: the -court is not infallible. Popular judgment , of the case should without regard to the decis- -ion take into account the situation .as it existed when the act was :passed. This was in the era of high Jiving costs when it took one-half or more of the legislative salary to .pay ordinary expenses, let alone a reasonable wage and an allowance for losses occasioned by absence from business. The compensation of legislators had not been changed since the low-price period of the SO's, and there can be no question among reasonable observers that •barring the constitutional question .larger compensation was amply jus- •tified. It is doubtless a waste of effort to try to make people see this dn the present low-price period and '.agitation for reduction of public ex vpenditures, but it is true neverthe Jess. But whatever is to be said In de iense of the act on the foregoing ^grounds, it must be conceded that -as the Advance has said before now -there is nothing whatever to b •ttrged in behalf of the politics in solved or the provision which mad the law applicable to members o 'the legislature which passed i Even in the best of times the peopl Jook with suspicion on congres sional and legislative salary boosts The legislature which adopted thi unfortunate act should have see *his and should have halted proced •ore till a campaign of education ha prepared the people for it. As fo 4he provision which made the applicable to sitting legislators, was principally that which arouse the storm of public protest and le to the legal attacks which have resulted in the present adverse result. "Without that perfectly asinine clause (in-a political sense) it seems probable that the act would, not Tiave aroused much popular opposition and would never have been subjected to test in the courts. on the Reconstruction Finance Corporation board seems universal. This ppears not only in newspaper and rlvate comment ; but In prompt ac- eptance 'by the Senate's banking ommlttee and the Senate itself. •Jot even Senator Brookhart, mem- er of the committee, objected. The appointment is peculiarly ratifying to this section of the ountry because it makes sure that very safe means to relieve the ag- icultural situation will have a wise nd able proponent and defender on he board itself. No major institu- ion in Iowa is more dependent on r closer to the farming population han the Cowles newspapers. Mr. Cowles will be fair, he will be impartial, he will be sound, but to the imit of his ability and influence he vill be sure to see to it that what he R. F. C. can do for real agrlcul- ural relief is done.

Dorothy Schulz and Ruby Koepke taught primary Sunday In the absence of the regular teachers, Mrs. Casey Loss and Mrs. Earl Miller. Mrs. Loss was at Cedar Rapids, where she spent several days with a friend. Mrs. 0. L. MHle.r Surprised— A number of relatives from Algona gathered at O. L. Miller's Saturday evening to give Mrs. Miller a surprise in honor of her birthday. A. McLean also celebrated a birthday H UDDLE IS 6*fH Of the most realistic, of all the so-called "college" pictures, first, because all the scenes were actually taken on the Yale campus, second, because the characters behave like collegians, and, third, because, Yale does not win the big climatic game, it merely ties Harvard. These, you will admit, are features which distinguish it from the ordinary col- 'lege football story, dished out to suffering movie patrons ,for lo these many years. But, speaking,of suf ferftig patrons, has anything ever shown on the screen even approach*ed the agony of seeing a hero with an appendix all ready to burst playing the rough and ready'.game of football? - Granted that our noble hero is in excruciating pain, it is also an' "experience'? for every single customer. 'Ramon Navarro is the son of a hard-working Italian steel worker. His muscles have become hard cat stoking a giant furnace in the mills. When he wins'a-scholarship, he goes to, Yale, but the mellowing influences of this institution of higher learning fail to penetrate this man of iron. He is cordially disliked by everyone except his roommate and Rosalie (Madge Evans). Just why Rosalie is so shocked at his proposal to spend the night In a secluded inn but conies back in the final scenes to our hero's dormitory room as blithely as though she were entertaining in her own parlor is not satisfactorily explained. In the big finale, the. crucial' football game, with the old rival,. Harvard,' both Yale and Tony come through with flying.colors, and a tie game brings the final touch of authenticity to the picture. Throughout Huddle the atmosphere of the .campus has been truthfully and realistically brought to the screen: you have the Illusion, so difficult to ; portray,,,that these men are actually sons of old Eli, that these experiences are real, not faked. Actual. football games, the boat race, fraternity rushing, scenes in the class rooms and In the dormitories, are expertly handled by. a competent cast of convincing actors'. •Huddle is one of those "surprises" which make the job of a talking'pic- a'If anybody" Want* -to irgUe about It, Just callus on tne f phone- i we can always hang,up, you know. H EA^ of yj| SEXTON ON 1 EAVEN 6*J EARTH !« ft story the Mississippi done In the melodramatic style of the early nineties; it deplete life among the poor white trash In Shantytown and mvoes In true southern tempo. Shots along the river are InteTestlrig and picturesque, -but 'the acting of young ewls Ayres is colorless. The sujS- JrUtig cast gives this talkie whatever claim to fame It may have, introduction of the religious note Is* rather unnecessary except as It gives a background for the picture. The heroine, blOn'd Anita Loulde, Is as^much a washout as the flood, which terminates Heaven on Earth In a florid, dramatic manner. If we may be pardoned for putting thte production on a percentage basis, we should say: atmosphere and background, 85%; acting, 10%; photography, 5%. Look over the figures .(as the banker might say, or the producer of "a musical com- •edy) and if you like these dividends,,, in v the order named, then this is a 100% picture.

RANEY FAMILY IN REUNION AT BRITT The annual Raney family reunion was held Sunday at the Eagle Lake state park,.near, Brltt with 86 persons in attendance,-as follows: Mr. and Mrsv Charles 'Raney, Herbert and Beth, ,Guy, his wife, and baby, all of Livermore; Ernest and his wife, Rutland; and Mrs. V.

AGAIN ' Two weeks ago the Mason City Globe-Gazette attacked Senator Pat- and last week the Advance , The G,*Q,'8 rebuttal as o£ ^Saturday k now reprinted on thlfj 3>age. It calls for no sur-rebuttal except as regards the alleged letter from a fellow senator. The G.-G.'s first editorial bore the -earmarks of a "filler" written in : has to as the editor was departing lor the republican national convention. The present editorial was evidently even more hastily written, as 'the writer was departing for the ••emocratic convention. If it had *een written at leisure the editor, •who prides himself on fairness, •would never have stooped to that most unfair of all tricks in editorial •criticism, quotation from an'anony- •Tnous accuser. No one knows better than the editor of the G.-G. that anonymity in •accusation is the first crime in the •newspaper calendar. The editor of *he G.-<3. himself has often said so, last time within a few weeks in Eye Observing column. The "*4fea~son that such anonymity is unt- "versally considered unfair, not to say cowardly, is that both the Indi"Vidual attacked and the public are without means to investigate record and assess the motives of It is said that in 1930 the insurance companies had to meet demands for $1,300,000,000 in policy loans, and that since the depression began they have had to lend $3,000,000,000 altogether against policies. "Which may, at least in a 'measure, explain why they are now so tight as regards new real estate loans or renewals. The Estherville V. & R. and the Humboldt papers argue against the income tax on the ground that it taxes thrift, in other words the ability to make profits. Apparently they held to the rather naive notion that the way to get taxes is to take them from the thriftless, that is, from people who do not know how to make money.' Such economics! The Mason City G.-G., in its recent ed.itorial against Patterson, remarked that under present' conditions the proposed state income tax might not yield more than enough to run the school for the blind. Editor Ira A. Nichols, of the Iowa Falls Citizen dryly called that one rather neatly by retorting that this would be good news to people who would have to pay the tax. And he might have added, "Why, then, all the yelling?" Governor Turner was everlastingly, right at Chicago, but that didn't get him anything in a wet delegation, says the democratic (yet dry) Knoxville Express. True: 16 members out of 25 thought booze, not the economic situation, was the great Issue of the day. Saturday, and he heard via Yankton, S. D., a dedication in his honor Sunday.

Having, & vlojation of well eatab newspaper ethics, made us •"'-• •'- " upqp Itself th< Another G.-O, Slam at Patterson [Mason City Globe-Gazette.] There is presented in the "Other Editors" department a, vigorous edi- orlal defense of Senator Patterson. While there is much that is debat- :ble in Mr. Dewel's article, no part af It seems to call for an answer ex- ept his charge that the Globe-Gazette is seeking to defeat the Burt statesman. This criticism was written follow- ng the primary election. Any belief ve may have held that we 'could influence votes" against Mr. Pat- :erson or anybody else had vanished, most assuredly. And fi-om the fact that he was without opposition n the primaries, we deduced that le was unbeatable In the election. Fleally the defeat of Mr. Patterson was farthest from our thoughts. We went into the debate purely for love of the game. Since this editorial was printed, a letter has been received from one of the senator's respected colleagues, who has advocated the income tax almost as long as the senator himself. It contains a paragraph which ought to be a political asset to him, and we reproduce it: "Patterson was the leading exponent of the salary grab in the 43rd general assembly. As a matter of fact, he is probably more responsible for it than any other member of the Iowa senate." This is by way of correcting any Insinuation unwittingly advanced in these columns that Senator Patterson's record is barren . 'By his eloquence and his shining example, he undoubtedly persuaded more than one timid soul that the Iowa statute which bars legislators from raising their own income within their own term of office is both eilly and ambiguous. If salary-grabbing is to flourish in the future as it has in the past, it follows, obviously, that there must not only be a state income tax but that it be left for. the legislature's disbursement. To return the new revenue, or any part of it, to the local governmental units would be a decided cramp on the senator's style. 'By joining these issues — income tax and salary-grabbing '— Senator Patterson ought to fce able to perpetuate himself in office a long tiine. It would be presumptuous for any newspaper to tbink it cpuld u»- pl£ and' so vocal"for the wnderdpjr". Sunday on, Is Thei-e Marriage in Heaven? This completed a series of three sermons, having to do with the second coming of Christ. The other two topics were, I Am Coming Again, and When I Come Ag'ain.

Mrs. McCormick and Mrs. Summers are sisters. continued enthusiasm by ill-concealed disgust. : The story follows: the young couple wish to marry, but are prevented by the selfishness of his mother and the unfaithfulness of her's. When the girl's mother runs away with a boarder, the husband (Marian's father) has a stroke, but events finally turn into a Chappy ending of the little fairy tale. There are moments of coliossal dullness in the middle of this picture, seeming hours of conversation of the most trite and trivial variety,- One of these "moments" we remember to our discomfort, • a talk between the girl's father and the boy's mother, which gets so .bad/that even the father leaves the room in utter disgust, and we, poor, suffering critic, go out to smoke a clgaret. Yes, it's that bad! A sentimental ditty of the sob- kind is introduced to give Mr. Farrell an opportunity to air his voice. It's something about the sun shining, "after tomorrow," and it Is go touching that even Marian breaks down and has a good cry. After Tomorrow is Mr. Borzage's weakest attempt, and we suggest a lay-off for Charley, who seems to be suffering from some'peculiar condition, which, for lack of a better term, we might call lackadaisical. J UST OUTSIDE OF THE coveted circle of the stars stands the vast army of character actors and actresses; the lesser lights, in plainer language the supporting cast. But they are as important to 'a picture, •perhaps, as the leading players, though their names are.never flashed across». the theater-front In brilliant lights, and mention in the cast of characters is as much as they get. from a publicity standpoint. They are, in a word, the unsung heroes and heroines of the screen. All of us have our favorites among these players.
