BANK STATEMENTS AWB VTE THE DEAR PUBLIC Banks are required by law to pub• llsh statements of condition on cal ; of the national or state banking i authorities. Although newspapers i profit from this requirement, many i publishers would agree that this is i a fool law as it works out. The idea, '; which is highly commendable, is j double, first, to put a check on the 'banks, second, to advise the public concerning the safety of institutions ''of such vital importance, i If everybody were able to read a 'bank statement intelligently and 'could be depended on to draw no unwarranted conclusions or spread no false reports, the theory would work out admirably; but unfortunately few people can read a bank statement and understand it, and fewer still can refrain from unfounded gossip. The result is that the people, often cut off their own •noses by wrecking- banks which, if Jet alone, would weather financial storms. Another result is that when bank- Ing 1 conditions become difficult the country banks are compelled to adopt policies of restriction which react unfavorably on the communities they serve. To make a showing o£ reserves which will inspire .public confidence they must deny needed loans and invest idle funds in immediately convertible securities. Such a policy takes rural money out of the community and thus restricts local enterprise, for the cash paid for bonds goes to big city institutions, which lend it to great corporations or otherwise on call or on short-term secured paper. Rural funds are used to build up the city, not the country. Now, no country bank wants to do this. In the first place the returns from such securities are much lower than the banks could gat at home, and in the second place it stands every bank in hand to build up its own community and thus increase its own business. But what other policy can be followed when it is known that unless the bank's •published statement shows a .big balance on hand or invested in the equivalent of cash, some misguided .-fool will start a rumor which may ••wreck the bank? Right now, and the condition has "toeen the same for three years, al new country banks and all old country banks in a position to do so are 'carrying many times the legal reserve, when if they could rely •the good sense of the people thej "would expand local loans and help their own communities instead o: big city interests. This is not the fault of the banks but of the people; the banks simply dare not follow the policy which would reac not only to their own benefit but to that of their own communities. When the federal reserve systeir was introduced provision was made Whereby banks which needed extra money to take care of their custom ers could rediscount notea, that if temporarily sell good paper to th< federal reserve, redeeming it late When local needs subsided. This wa. a great idea, one intended to help local communities which were shor of money build themselves up will outside money. But What happened Just this, that when people foum this new item of rediscounts in banl statements they jumped to the con elusion that there was something the matter with the banks, and th result is that today no bank whic Mi jtaftl It hinwelf, hav* to add & *utt cent. j So with everything else the thotis* and-dollar-a-year man bought. His are mostly small purchase* on •which his tradesman could not at- ford to absorb the tax and would hare to add ikto the gelllnf price many times over. And while on large purchases the tax might not result in "velvet," still it would b« passed on, and he, the ultimate consumer, .would remain .the goat. (And the wealthy Mr. Bettendorf would have no state tax to pay on his swollen income, no tax on his lands, no matter how valuable, no tax on hie great factories, no tax on hla plants or products, no tax on his money, his stocks, bonds, and other securities, just a measly one-half of one per cent tax on what he sells, and that he would get -back from his consumers—in fact, 'no real -tax whatever except on what he himself buys as an ultimate consumer, which from the standpoint of ability to pay would be a thousand, times less than the thousand-dollar-a- year man would pay. > -, Just the old, old scheme In a new dress: tax the poor man all that can be squeezed out of him and let the rich man escape his due burden of support of the form of society which not only makes possible his riches but protects him In the enjoyment of his wealth.

Far from Like His Cousin. (Knoxville Journal — [Franklin Roosevelt resembles the great Roosevelt in name only. He lacks the fighting qualities, the determined purpose, and 'the decision of character that made Theodore Roosevelt the greatest figure in American history since Lincoln. Another Senator on Patterson [By Sen. C. £. Anderson, Ft. Dodge Disk] To the Editor—I was amazed to read an article in the Mason City Globe-Gazette in which one of Patterson's "respected colleagues" accuses Mr. Patterson of having been the leading exponent of the legisla- tixe expense act paesed in 1929.

The Call calendar for the month of Jfuly looks Interesting; it Is varied enough to appeal to almost every taste and the cool, comfortable Call isn't a bad place to escape the sweltering heat of mid-summer. That to, If you have the necessary J5c. S OCIETY OIBIj packs a mean wallop, In the parlance of the "ring"; 'here Is a fight picture that follows a new line of thought and while the general outline of plot la rather hackneyed and somewhat' improbable, there's a ;Iot of -entertainment and Interest for both masculine and feminine tastes In the current show. Oh, there's, nothing so impossible about a rich society girl finding something fresh and Invigorating about a prize-fighter; the newspapers carry accounts every day about wealthy heiresses running away with their chauffeurs. Two of the screen's most earnest and . convincing actors help to put this picture "over"; In James Dunn and Spencer Tracy you will note a sincerity, a homeliness, a naturalness which you find in few other actors of the movies. -We like them separately and we like them in this combination 1 qf fighter and man-, ager; in fact, Society Girl is Spencer Tracy's triumph. James Dunn gave us in Bad Girl, a slightly superior portrayal simply because he was the "whole show." Peggy Shannon, also, contributes a fine piece of dramatic work, done with finesse and a complete understanding of the character which we sought to reflect upon the screen. /">EORG-E BANCROFT has never made a really bad picture. There are perhaps two reasons for this; first, he is a quality, rather than a. quantity-man, doing only about two pictures a year; secondly, he takes parts which are within his limited scope of capabilities. The World and the Flesh is distinctly Russian in flavor and is his least convincing effort simply through an oversight in direction at the very finish; when he carries the miminu- tive Marian Hopkins away in his brawny arms — object, matrimony — you feel that John Cromwell has slipped up, sacrificed a tragic for a happy ending and ruined the show, John Cromwell being the director. Up to this point, he has given us a masterly production, replete with superb photography and subtle touches of realism. The plot of The World and the Flesh centers around the revolution in iRussla with Geo. Bancroft playing the part of a swash-buckling adventurer and leader of the Reds. He falls in love with an actress, Marian Hopkins; she has risen from the ranks of the common ' people and now lives with the aristocracy. It is quite inconceivable to our rather simple mind that this great brawny giant should suddenly appeal to the little actress to the point where both should flirt with death and ev granting such an emotion would be possible under the circumstances, it is still more incredible that, under a communistic form of government, they should be somewhat miraculously snatched from the fate which was certainly coming to them. /"ILAUDETTE COL/BERT is a fas- ^ cinating little actress who seems to have had a series of "bad breaks' of late. In her latest production entitled The Misleading Lady, she is the object of much dragging around and mistreatment and her cries for help, which take up a lo of footage towards the middle of the show, are a little wearing on the nerves. The cast is above re proach. Edmund Lowe, as the modern caveman, plays his part.to perfection and the inconsequentia Stuart Erwin, as Napoleon, the 'nut" contributes his usual finished characterization. dfretitdr.

Delegates to Convention Tfametf— redlscounts, and every bank which has none seeks to inspire confidence by emphasizing the fact in its published statements. In this way a measure intended to be of great benefit to local communities is defeated, and the public itself is to Iblame. The benefits intended to accrue from loans made to banks by the new Reconstruction 'Finance corpor-ation are already similarly regarded as red flags of unsafely instead of what they really are, to- wit, an attempt to help local com- themselves with people, yell for munities finance government aid. Thus we, the banking and other relief, and when we get it we -proceed,to knock it in the head. The situation suggests that since we cannot be trusted to read a bank statement intelligently, it might bo better if none were published. JUST THE OLD WOLF IN A NEW SKIN Discussing favorably the gross income or general sales state tax which the rich Mr. Bettendorf, of Davenport, and his followers are lathering as a substitute for all other state and local taxes, -Plain Talk, Des Moinea, says: "The new plan is illustrated by the 'example of a man who earns a thousand dollars a year. At a rate of one-half of one per cent of -his earnings, which the proposers of the plan, think will be sufficient to do away with all other kinds of taxes, state, county, and municipal, he would pay to the tax gatherer the Bum of five dollars." Beautiful theory! As If everybody else's tax wouldn't be ftassed on to him,. the ultimate consumer, and in the aggregate' he would pay more real taxes than before—and the rich •would get off easy! Arid not only would he, as the timate consumer, pay everybody else's tax without being able to pass it on himself, but on nearly every »mall item he buys he would pay "velvet" besides. Take a Cc box of matches, for example: the tax trould be one-half of one per cent of 6c, but since that irouli|.b0 «nly ft fraction of * cent, the grocer, who ing to misrepresent. I served with Senator Patterson during five sessions of the legislature. (During the entire time he has served in the senate I occupied a seat next to him, and I know him as no other member of the legislature does. He made absolutely no effort to secure the passage of this law, he did not speak for it from the floor or in any committee, and he did not lobby for its passage. Senator Patterson is blessed with splendid judgment, intelligence, and ability. He has been instrumental in saving the taxpayers many millions. In the 49th G. A. a special effort was made to increase taxes several millions by inflating the appropriation bill for state expenses. Patterson and I fought side by side to defeat this increase, and it was beaten. At the last session I introduced four amendments to the appropriation bill which reduced It to the extend of '$869,000, tout amendments were not adopted the till after a warm verbal battle. Patterson was one of my best debate supporters. I could go on; It's the same story: Patterson could always be depended on to line up with the economy group. 'Both Patterson and the state income tax have been greatly misrepresented. Opponents are obliged to resort to falsehood in order to criticize Patterson. I wonder whether the people of Patterson's district are familiar with the fact that opponents of the income tax are well organized and cheerfully spend money to defeat thia measure. They would rather part with thousands every time the legislature convenes than pay an annual tax which would amount to a hundred tunes as much. On the .other hand how much effort have those who would benefit by the income tax put forth to help put It over? They scarcely go to the trouble to go and vote for the men who fight their battles in the legislature! : £The foregoing letter was written to the Advance. Sen. El. W. Clark, of Mason City, and Sen.

The plot is simple enough to follow easily, The only apparent weakness of the production is the extreme suffering of Miss Colbert, but since she seems to enjoy it to •the extent of working herself up into an intense admiration for the man who inflicts it upon her, well, we really haven't much to holler about. So we'll check it off as good summer entertainment. T HE MAN FROM Yesterday isn't any "hot shakes." In it they have utterly wasted the talents of two interesting screen personalities —Clive Brook and Claudette Colbert. If you care to ruminate on the reactions resulting from an almost impossible circumstance—strictly mov- lesque—perhaps you'll be able to sit through this nightmare. And it is a nightmare in more than one sense. Both principals go about their affairs as if they were in a trance—• dazed, slightly dizzy—and can you blame them? When Clive Brook leaves his bride and goes to war you feel that something is going to happen. It does. He is reported dead and his wife falls in love with an army surgeon. Just when everything is at the peak of perfection—up bobs Clive. Dilemma—shall the hapless wife go to her husband or stick it out with her lover True to the sacred traditions of the movies, she returns to her husband, tout he senses her feelings of duty rather than love and considerately eats and drinks himself to death. A little boy of five or six years easily parries off the - honors of a sincere and earnest performance. Charles Boyer, as the surgeon, warms up to his part in the final scenes but makes a rather lame beginning. The shots |n Switzerland— a la Canadian Rockies — are good, but the .dialog Is hopeless.
