THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WORK OF THE H, F. C. [Truer Star-Clipper.] The reconstruction plan proposed by President Hoover In December, 101! 1, Is now In full swing 1 . Under Hie provisions of this measure, the government Is putting; all its resources back of a powerful drive to bring 1 bach to pnfalngr life the economic forces of the nation. Money, credit, and well-p'iinned organized forces nro reaching 1 Into every corner of the land to bring- timid business and finance back to the full stride of former power. The KeconstrncUon Finance corporation hns lent $1,219.000,000 to 4,917 Institutions, Including- 4,190 banks. Seventy-three per cent of these hanks wore In towns of 5,000 or less, -widely distributed throughout agricultural communities; 808,000,000 was loaned to building- and loan associations; 8180,000,000 to 1-1 livestock credit corporations; $1,500,009 to Johit Stock I/and banks. and $88,000,000 to Federal Land banks. In addition to these loans la agricultural areas, 500,000 Individual loans -were made to farmers In drought-stricken districts, as-K-ros-ntlng- $05,000,000. The figures quoted are from printed reports anil tell a different story than Is being spread tliroiiB-hout the land by Individuals and groups who seek to spread and foster discontent and nnhapplness and delay the rctuni of good times. Voutly hoping that he will beat "Geyser George." Here, again, la shopworn goods; the Mason City Globe-Gazette wore out the anonymous senator-critic stuff months ago. this But If Mr. MoKarland needs sort of hidden attack the Advance will supply him with the names of other senators who will be glad to furnish like ammunition— always, of course, with the understanding that they are to be protected by anonymity from inquisition into motives and i-ecords. In this connection it will be noticed that Senator Patterson does not stoop to that kind of tactics; the Identity of his endorsers is given, and Mr. MoFarland, hia supporters, and the public thus have a fair opportunity to inquire into their records, search motives, and assess the contribution of the endorsers to the campaign at what it is worth. As regards the proposed debate. Mr. McFarland's tactics have been puzzling. In some newspaper advertisements he has said, "I gladly accept that challenge"; in that he could not accept, others, having mapped out a course beforehand from which he did not desire to deviate. He has never explained this Inconsistency, but by a process of guesswork the interpretation ' has been arrived at that he means acceptance of a challenge to debate by means of newspaper advertising and communications. . If Mr. McFVirland'e confused style of reasoning were not by this time well known he could, In this evasion, be accused of deliberate small trickery ill becoming a candidate for the senate. Mr. Patterson, of course, never offered any such challenge, as Mr. McFarland well knows. The challenge wae specifically for open debate on the public platform. Mr. .McFarland refused this challenge in a personal letter to Mr. Patterson which he himself (McFarland) sent out to the newspapers for publication. Mr. McFarland's peculiar course in this respect has damaged his cause, for there is now a general feeling among voters that if he is not willing to accept the challenge as made, the reason -is either that his charges cannot be defended on the platform or that he feels himself incapable of standing his ground in oral debate — in which latter event he would, of course, be but a sorry representative of the 47th district in the battles which must be Timely Topics MR. M'FAJILAIVJ) A3fD SENATOR PATTERSON AOAIX Mr. McFarland sends a marked copy of the West Bend Journal containing a political communication •which is so rambling and incoherent that we cannot be sure, what he -wants, but apparently he seeks advertising via editorial comment. The Advance enjoys debate, even when it involves giving away valuable advertising, and we are there- • try needs besides a good 5c cigar is lore willing to accommodate in this instance, but with the warning that in future we cannot waste space on repetition of arguments already exploited. Mr. McFarland continues, to argue fought to a standstill in the general assembly. next The criticisms in this editorial of Mr. McFarland's charges as "old stuff" did not originate with us but with a democratic editor in this district who says he is "fed up" with the McFarland propaganda and will spread no more of it.

[Advertisement In Citizen.] I am a man of few words (being married) but I want to say to you that we now have at 39c, the best damned work shirt I ever saw for the' money Been hearing a lot about the fanners strike in various parts of the state, if the farmers wives would strike, that would be news, but they don't do it, the poor dears haven't got time, they will keep right on dressing children and chickens and the million other things that falls to a woman's lot on a farm and they will do it for their board and clothes, not too many lothes either ...

D OWN TO EARTH is Will Rog. efs' latest contribution to the screen, but outside the fact that It deals with a timely subject, Old Man Depression, there is not much to recommend the talkie. Mr. Rogers has about reached the limit of his capabilities along this line ot the small town Babbitt who suddenly acquires wealth and- finds it decidedly irksome; his crude boorishness, commonly known as 100 per cent Americanism, is just a little wearing on the nerves, repeated too often. His rather contagious humor is strained to the breaking point In [Down to Earth. There are a few good laughs and a "good deal of moralizing about present economic conditions. Supporting Mr. Rogers Is Irene Rich as , his social-climbing wife, Dorothy Jordan as his sacrificing daughter-in-law, and others who are capable but uninspired. Again, the .butler scores heavily In a minor role. Chief Interest In this latest Will Rogers picture is its current showing in both Des Molnes and Chicago, emphasizing the fact, already long apparent, that Algona needs to take no back seat for the larger cities in the line of entertainment. Time was when travelers to our Capitol city returned with alluring tales of shows and entertainments. Alas, those golden days are gone,, apparently forever: Des Molnes sees the same movies as Algona at the same time; and see them for €0c instead of 35c, which, as Will Rogers would say, Is getting down to earth. If the crowds that jammed the Call Sunday night are any barometer of the times, then truly it would seem that things are on the up-grade; either that' or this popular theater is pulling 'em from a wider radius. Whatever it is, Algona streets were filled with Sunday night pleasure seekers, and the town thus presented a gala appearance. Welcome, Strange Prosperity! It's a dull week when some new scandal does not come out of Hollywood. Movie stardom and decency in private life seem to be incompatible. Among the things this coun- a lesson like Fatty Arbuckle's for every film star who goes wrong.

This has been dead and The bonus, if paid now, will in the buried over eince Patterson return- en d, in the backset it gives the country, cost every veteran twice or more what he gets out of it. It is now established that though the spectacular stock crash In the fall of 1929 first made the country conscious of the depression, it had in fact begun in the spring at about the time Hoover became president. (But sh! Let's not be sensible; let's blame him anyhow. We eaw a receipt 'Friday for the last half of this year's taxes against a good farm east of Algona, and the man who showed it to us said that the'landlord's share of the 1932 receipts from the farm would not pay the year's taxes. That sort of thing shows, why we have a so- called "farm holiday" this fall like General 'Coxey's army in 1896. Barring foreclosures, business in the mid-west today is harder hit ed the money, with interest, and the public is tired of it. It is time for something new. In like manner Mr. McFarland, in his advertisements, continues his silly power trust charge, though nothing was ever more completely exploded. It has been, and remains, a mystery where Mr. McFarland got it; he has never quoted authority. Be that as it may, the charge was instantly refuted in toto by the very element to which he was appealing. the municipally-owned power interests, whose light state and officers, in public letters, revealed that, •contrary to the McFarland charge, Senator Patterson has been one of their chief defenders. Algona's democratic city attorney is on record to the same effect, and City Supt. J. "W. Kelly gives like testimony. Yet Mr. McFarland blandly goes -on repeating this wholly unfounded and unsupported charge as if no- ibody had denied it. How can any- Ibody debate against such evident inability to recognize and abandon an exploded charge? Let us have ^something new. - • • Mr. MriFarland alao continues to tapply opprobrious epithets to Senator Patterson in connection with the salary grab. These are .not only li- t>elous, but they are not the artillery of a gentleman. Besides, they are •now old stuff, Mr. MoFarlanc sprang this attack too soon, and it tias been ruined by exposure. Here again it ia time for something new Constant repetition of explodec ichargres merely convicts Mr. iFariand of inability to adapt Me- his tactics to the changing strategy of She campaign. Mr. McFarland quotes three out- of-the-district newspapers against Tatterson: the Forest City Summit the Mason City Globe-Gazette, the Jefferson Bee. The 'Forest City editor, an excellent but misguided gentleman, was a candidate for the legislature In the primaries. Against his opponen jhe used the salary grab argumen fcut was beaten. Senator Patterson spoke in the district and defended the incumbent. In the Mason City congresslona district the Globe-Gazette milltantly «pposed Representative Haugen (Senator Patterson defended Haugen In a speech at Charles City. At Jefferson two years ago Senator Patterson, by Invitation, spoke on the state income tax before the Rotary club. The Bee editor, bitter anti-income taxer, abused Patter- aon in his published report of the speech. The president of the club the county agent, and other members wrote voluntary letters to Patterson apologizing for and disowning the editor's remarks. So much for these three papers Then- animus is evident. But if Mr McFarland, m an effort to find something new, needs other editorial abuse of Patterson the Advance will furnish him with enough references to keep him going till November. As Mr. McFarland scans them be may be reminded of General famous remark concerning Cleveland, that the people ought to love him for the enemies made. Naively, Mr. McFarland, as If It were eometMng- new an<3 wonderful, he had en unnamed senator as de- than farming. The man with a Saturday payroll to meet is in a particularly difficult position. If there is no change for the better soon, many such men will face bankruptcy. The situation is more serious than, any .other since the mid- nineties. Among the Editors No, They'll Vote for It.

Seeing it in its entirety at the Call, we gain a slightly different impression. It Is more a "location" picture, like Grand Hotel and Union Depot, and less the melodramatic hodge-podge, when we get the background of the first few reels. Norman Foster, whom we scarcely mentioned in our former review, playsV an important part, sharing honors with Warren Williams and Maureen O'Sullivan. This is strictly sophisticated, high-geared entertainment, and if you don't take your talkies too seriously will offend nobody. Says the suave Warren to his wife: "When We lived in separate houses, we got along well; when we lived in different cities, we got along still better; and when we lived in different continents we were probably the happiest married couple in the world!" Or words to that effect. Who says we're not living in a fast age? fiROONER puts that species of ^ radio entertainer "on the spot." In the talking-picture version the popular idol is a lout, a conceited nes, a public nuisance, 'Followers of Rudy Vallee, Blng Crosby ( etc., are therefore not likely to enjoy this picture. At best it la a slow-moving, tiresome tirade, written with more venom than artistry. It Is a curious circumstance that since Crooner appeared, our friend Rudy has been Involved in a cabaret brawl similar to the one depicted in the picture, in which the hero slugs a crippled patron. Perhaps,, then, the talkie is not'as far-fetched ,a piece of movie hokum as appears at 'first sight. . .. • . In the beginning, we .find Ted Taylor (David Manners) leader of a down-and-out orchestra. He accidentally sings through a megaphone, trying to pinch-hit for the regular soloist, and Is an instantaneous success. He deserts his beet friend (Ann Dvorak), his triumph going to his head, with the subsequent result that we find him, in the final reel, a saxophone player In a second rate orchestra, just "getting . along." Then he has the good sense to take back his loyal girl-friend, and the happy ending ensues. The talkie Is just about as flat as the description. If there Is one redeeming feature about Crooner, this reviewer failed to find It. The tempo of the thing is frightfully slow, the acting dull and. uninspired, and Ann Dvorak has climbed many rungs down the ladder of 'stardom since her sensational work in Scarface. In Crooner she hasn't anything to-do, and it Is no credit to her 'that she does it well. -David Manners, never a whiz, is just a headache. And that, dear readers, is the essence of a misspent evening. '• The newereel In connection with Crooner shows the train-wreck at the Iowa state fair, which we witnessed a few weeks ago. It proves clearly how cleverly the cameramen take "shots" of happenings in our little world; for it seemed to us that we actually saw more in the newsreel than when we sat on those hard,- wooden seats and waited five hours for the. big thrill. At least it wasn't raining in the Call, and that's something. Now,-isn't it? R IDERS OF DEATH VAiLLEY is a swell western. Tony and Tom Mix and a lot of beautiful western scenery make this talkie one of the most enjoyable bits, of moron fodder that has come • Algonawards for some time. In place of one villain there are two in this picture, and the action is fast and furious from start to finish. We won't go into the plot—that would be unnecessary —and the crowd showed the effects of a five-day county fair brawl, but after .all details are omitted it is still one of the best things Tom Mix has given us in some time — and we ought to be thankful for even the smallest favors; With all the readjustment that is going on in our modern world it is a pleasure to witness a talkie like Riders of Death Valley at the end of a harrowing Saturday. Somehow we feel that for once we. can "let go" in earnest and give ourselves over completely to the forces of mediocrity. Because Tom Mix and Tony couldn't do any more than that for suffering humanity. ble. Tha other night, when a man's wife was working a crossword puzzle, she looked up and said.

An Interesting •exhibit not entered for a prize was a vase of nine dahlia stalks, grown by Grover Rentz, Lu Verne, and presented to Julius Kunz. The dahlias were a curldslty as to coloring and size. The Algona, Lu Verne, Ledyard, Lone Rock, and Burt schools had exhibits, as well as rural schools. The Algona exhibit was outstandr ing, everything was mounted- on cardboard of uniform size, with attention to margins and color schemes. A White Wyandotte rooster from Sioux Rapids in the poultry exhibit at last week's fair here, was a high winner at the Madison Square Garden Poultry Show last winter. Some red Persian kittens, some rat-ter- rior and collie pups, and the. Shetland ponies were practically all the exhibits that attracted undivided and constant attention from small children. Orville and Cecil Thoreson and their mother, Who live seven miles northwest of Swea City, just four miles from the Minnesota line, are not daunted by distance when it comes to exhibiting at the county fair. They brought down more than 60 exhibits for three departments, grain, fruit, and vegetables, and they captured 29 firsts, ten seconds and two thirds. They also had 16 grain exhibits at the North Iowa fair, Mason City, last week, which meant duplication of those 16 exhibits here. The boys, who are both young and will cast their first presidential votes in November, farm 100 acres. They have exhibited before, at the state corn show, the state fair, the Waterloo Dairy Cattle Congress, and the International stock show; and they expect to exhibit at the Clay county fair soon. They prepared their first exhibit for the Kossuth fair June 1, a bluegrass sheaf. Their exhibits of sheaf grains are all field-selected, and all grasses are shade-cured. ghum, even as a child Jarney, of the Petereon Patriot, hasn't said anything funny for weeks.
