HOOVER AS THE GOAT !>' THIS CAMl'AfOX In the Call of 1SSS Benjamin Harrison was elected president of the "United States. Four years later he was defeated by Orover Cleveland, who was Harrison's immediate predecessor as well as .successor. Cleveland took office March 4. 1S93, and lie was hardly warm in his seat before the "panic of '03" occurred. It takes people on years old or better to remember the ensuing hard times. It was full three years before there were signs of improvement, and it was at least a year later before the turn became definitely recognizable. Then it took three years more to return to what people called prosperity. In 1900 the best Kossuth farms were selling at $45 an acre. In 1901 there was a boom which pushed the level up to ?75. There was a similar great crash in 1873 which it takes people now in their late 70's to recall. It took more "than five years to recover. Under conditions then existing- it was as disastrous as that of 1S93 or the present depression. There were other great panics in 1S57 and 1S37. Between the great ones there are always lesser panics, like the bankers' panic of 1907, when checks for more than ?25 at a time were n<Jt honored. Of greater and lesser panics there have been no fewer than since I860. ten tatlon for honest, Independent, uh- trammeled editorial opinion—If that be treason, make the most of It! Timely Topics Spencer's two newspapers published 40-pas;c coui'ty fair editions last week. The bu.-.iness men there back up their newsp.ipc.-3, and that is one reason why Spencor more and more becomes wlrtely recognized as northwest Iowa's coming town. The holiday movement serves to advertise the sad plight of the farmers, but that is all. The scheme is economically unsound for two reasons: 1. It cannot be made universal; 2. Even if it succeeded for the time being, it would have to end sometime' and the resultant dumping would then flood the markets and reduce prices to new lows. The Knoxville Express (Dem.) in one editorial paru=;r:vph speaks of ruinous Hoover leadership and in the next incautiously recalls tbu 4flc wheat, 20c corn, loc; oats, 28c rye, and 6c cotton of the mid '90'a. Cleveland was president then, and the republicans sprang the same piffle against him that the democrats are using against Hoover now. President 'Hoover and Alfred E. Smith have had the courage to speak plainly on the bonus question. If Governor -Roosevelt now fails to put himself on record pne way or the other, his reputation as a statesman will inevitably suffer. Jt is unfortunate that the Wallaces, not content with what they had and regardless of the land boom lessons of only a few years before, succumbed to the lure of consolidation with the Homestead, thereby biting off more than they could chew. The resulting editorial taint now makes Wallaces' Farmer practically valueless as a journal of sound agricultural opinion. The Spencer News-He,\ilcl, commenting on ;he Mississippi general sales tax, says the only thing better is the gross income tax. AVhich in view of tho fact that the gross income tax and the general sales tnx are exactly the same thing sulfi- ciently demonstrates the profundity of the X.-H.'j oilin'.on. In this country we have had at least four major depressions as ha<l as this one, but the only president to stand up manfully and fight one to a standstill has been Hoover. All the- rest were content merely to sit on the lid, save the government, and let the depression wear itself out. Among the Editors Al Smith Calls Spade a Spade on the Bonus [Editorial in Marehalltown Times- Republican.] Al Smith, democratic saint, tells us in the Saturday Evening 'Post that our government has already spent six billions of dollars on relief for the world war veterans, a sum equal to one-third of the total war debt. He then says that If no more changes are made in present laws our government will have spent for relief, by the time the present compensation certificates mature in 1945, a sum greater than the entire cost of the war or $23,500,000,000. "As a matter of fact," says Ai, "the United States spends In a single year nearly twice as much for veterans relief as the British government spend.s in 11 years for its so- called dole." Veterans' relief then, is costing us 22 times the British dole. "Ex-president Coolidge also says that it is only because of payments to veterans enacted over President Hoover's veto that the coet of federal government is greater today than it was in 1929. Both Smith and Coolldge are •members of a non-partisan national economic league which seeks to curb the enormous waste 'and expenditure caused by politicians seeking' votes from world war veterans. Smith thinks that less than 75 per cent of those who served in the government's armed forces are members of the American Legion and that wherens an active minority has triumphed within the Legion In favor of more expenditure .for a cash bonus the entire ' Legion membership is only a minority of ex-service men and it Is probably true that a majority of all ex-service men may be opposed to the bonus. At any rate with the government paying out now 22 times as much per annum for world war veterans as the British government pays for Us dole Al Smith thinks-that It Is time we know where our candidates stand on the bonus issue. "The • American people have a right to know where the candidates stand," says Smith. "They are entitled to know what their candidates for high office intend to recommend with respect to the future." President Hoover has made his position clear by his vetoes of bonus bills and by his recent campaign announcement, so it is up to Roosevelt to declare himself. Smith must have Intended to smoke Roosevelt out on this bonus issue. If Roosevelt is going to prevent more and greater raids upon the public treasury which must result in further Increase In taxes the voters are entitled to-know it. Smith is right. "Let us have pretty plain talk" as he puts it. CLet's hear where Roosevelt stands. At the Call Theatre A Review oi the Recent Talkies fey T, H, C. , Primer Tax Lesson Is Outlined for Tories [Editorial from Iowa Falls Citizen.] Times change, but human nature does not. It is human nature to look about for a goat when things _go wrong. "We adults are in many •ways but children grown up physically but not mentally. When the •times are good we expand beyond our limits. Mass psychology grips ms, and the whole country goes in ior a mad spree of over-indebted- :uess and over-investment. We pay -up to $25,000 for boars, boost land ito ?350 an acre, aM pay ridiculous prices for stocks. We always think *the current boom will last forevei'. But in due time the bubble never Sails to burst. We have brought it ion ourselves, but, like children, we !will not admit it. We search for the •well known goat, and we always tfind him in the White House. There we. abuse and revile him. We charge a»lm with impossible guilt for the conditions that we have ourselves ferought about. We expose little mistakes he has made and exaggerate them into mountains. We refuse to recognize prodigious efforts on bis part to save us from the consequences of our own mad folly. We must have a goat, and we proceed to vote him out on a guess that someone else who cannot possibly do toetter will wave a magic wand, and J>reato, change! A young man in the mid-9 O's watched 'Cleveland "get his," and Bloried in it, as foolish young partisans do. But the young man lived to see fickle public opinion do a Something' to Think About. Humboldt Independent — What business has suffered most in the depression? In 1914 Humboldt county had 20 banks; only twp remain. What if 18'out of 20 farms had been foreclosed? Eighteen out of every business and professional men closed out? Como Again; Only 82 Here. Traer Star-Clipper—For several years the Star-Clipper has been protesting against the practice of drawing 125 jurors for court trials each term of district court and is pleased to observe that the number has been reduced to 65 for the October term in this county. Aw, Xow, Don't Be Sensible. Bloomfield Republican — Depressions aren't ended with the sound of- a bell or a public announcement by the chief executive. And the idea that President Hoover or the republican party could end the depression is about as accurate as the belief that we can exercise a Carribean hurricane by law. Two arguments are being used" against a state income tax. One is that it will not be a replacement tax and the other is that there are no incomes to tax. Most of the opposition to a state income tax comes from the tory crowd, and any amount of argument has no effect. They repeat their statements with parrot-like precision. The main stock and. store of the opposition is that an income tax would Just be another tax and people who do not stop to think or inquire are apt to fall for it. Now Governor Turner has repeatedly said that the entire state levy should be replaced by an income tax. If the state levy of nine mills is wiped off the slate and no such levy is made against real estate,-the proposed income tax must be a replacement tax. It could be nothing else. The state tax is wiped out and the income tax replaces it. Nothing could be more axiomatic. Still, the tories will repeat their f replacement talk without reference to the facts. They Distressed Tenants and Rent Reduction do not want to abide by the truth, nor even find the truth. The argument about there being no incomes is all right for a superficial statement for the purpose of catching, votes, but It is not nn exposition of the truth. Now, if there are no incomes, then there will be no income taxes and why worry? If there are incomes, then either the people with incomes should pay the taxes or those without incomes should pay them. If those without incomes are to pay the bills, then they must pay it out of their principal, which is now going on with real estate taxes. If those with incomes are made to pay taxes, they can certainly pay more easily than people without incomes. It should be plain to any fair- minded and unprejudiced person •that to make no state levy and to pay the state tax with an income tax must -be a replacement tax and it ought to be plain to any fair- minded ^ and unprejudiced person that persons with incomes should not be allowed,to shunt the public burden on to the weak shoulders of persons with no incomes. Roosevelt Flayed for Bonus Question Dodge [John W. Carey, Sioux City Jour nal Columnist.] [Traer Star-Clipper.] mljeri -of,;..torecl»siw.e* have been started In Tama county court of late for the purpojw of selling out tenant* who can not p f ay the' rent off farms theV are occupying! This isf not a hopeful sign and In most cases we do not believe 1 It is wise or justifiable. "R<;nts contracted a year or two agq are out offline with present conditions. Very- few tenants, no matter how industrious and saving, can pay f he prices for Tama county farms which were customary a few years ago, even one year ago. The owners of these farms could not do it. It ia only fair and Just for landlords to reduces the rent this year as contracted on a basis of one or more years ago. Most of them are doing it Cuts all the'way from $1 to $3 per acre are given; and time of payment is extended in many cases. It is true that there are all kinds of renters. Some are shiftless, indolent and extravagant. Some do not try. 'But the great majority, we For a man who in a dramatic speech of acceptance less than 24 hours after his nomination voluntarily pledged himself, "I will leave no doubt or ambiguity on where I stand on any question of moment in this campaign," Franklin D. Roosevelt is acting somewhat strangely in refusing to give slightest hint of his attitude toward the American Legion's demand for immediate payment of the soldiers' bonus. Mr. Roosevelt in Chicago also ex- p'ressed his .intention "to be honest and to avoid hypocrisy and sham, to avoid all silly shutting of the eyes to the truth." There and then he billed himself as a big he-man campaigner—one who would be above the subterfuges and the equivocation" of ordinary politics. But he is not living up <to the ro.le. Not only does he refuse to commit himself on the bonus proposition, but he shows signs of peevishness when newspaper men press him for a statement. He is doing the very thing he promised not to do—procrastinating, eide stepping, shillyshallying, and it is not making the American: people think any the better of him. In its present setup the bonus question is a definite, clear cut, yee- or-no proposition. Mr. Roosevelt is either for it or against it. There is no question about President Hoover's attitude. Until Mr. Roosevelt declares hlmeelf as frankly as Mr. Hoover has declared himself, anything Mr. Roosevelt may have to say about Mr. Hoover'e indecision or tack of courage will Bound rather hollow, somersault and Cleveland again re-1 know have <j one thetr ^^ Tnev spected by a country which hung on l»ia every word in retirement. Later the young man came to know that 3t is a penalty of the presidency to Jfurnish the goat when we grown-up children need -one on which to vent spite for self-burned fingers. We "venerate Lincoln today, but in his own time he was assaulted with every vile accusation that men could think up; we have deified Washington till he is no longer human, but Sn that far-off day when our country was still in Its swaddling clothes fce was a shining target for insult and abuse. The young man of the mid-90's lhas lived through all the Intervening years and -is now on the shady Hide of middle age. Four years ago be did not vote for Hoover; he voted for Smith — which would shocked many people then. have This year, however, his vote goes to that name Hoover — which will shock saany more. He has nothing against Governor Roosevelt; believes the election of Roosevelt will involve no essential change of policies, no matter what blind followers expect. But lie cannot go along with this unfounded, omreasoning abuse of a president who not only has not been Responsible for the conditions under Which we suffer but has fought the greatest fight against a depression that history records and today is advancing line. against Its Hindenburg t t » And If tl\at. friends among whom V« have for nearly a quarter of a tcentury labored to build up a repu- have pinched and saved. They have labored long hours to save expense of hired help. The women have labored in the fields. They have deprived themselves of luxuries often of necessities of life. In a few Instances their cars have been abandoned for this year to save expense. But-, working- long hours like slaves, they can not pay rents of $8 or $10 with prices of farm products as they are this year. No one can do it unless he has a reserve to call on. The landlord has a lien on.al his personal property, including crops. He can sell out his renter If so disposed and kick him and his family off the farm without a dollar But few of them have the heart to do it. In many cases the owners of tenant farms need every dollar of the rent to meet interest and taxes and the expense of a. bare living. It is a. hard proposition on both sides The rich as well as the poor suffer in times like these—if we have any rich left. It is gratifying to notice that in most cases landlord and tenant are compromising on a fair basis. Both must give and take When a. tenant has worked faith^ fully and lived frugally and is willing to give the landlord everything raised on the farm except sufficient for the family's bare existence, the landlord should be charitable anc reasonable. Where the landlord must have a certain income to .meet taxes, interest and a bare living the tenant should do all in his power to meet such demands. But neither party can do the impossible.

RED CROSS IS MORE truth than po- A etry In Big City Blues. The small town boy who goes. to the great metropolis—does he see the huge building's, bridges, churches, and monuments, or does he sit in some stuffy hotel room, drinking poison rotgut with some cutle atx- treas on his knee? Alas, for human weakness—the latter is most likely to take place. The boy (Eric Linden), gulping heavily at all stages of the game and badly bewildered from the very start, leaves Willow Junction for New York City with high hopes and $1200; he returns with neither. He gets mixed up in a gin-drinking party in which a young actress is accidentally killed and Is thrown together with another actress when suspicion shadows both. After the crime has finally been hung on suicide, the youth returns home, sadder but Infinitely wiser. It takes eight or ten reels to tell this simple story, which is spread- Ing the butter too thin. .Big City (Blues has its' moments, however; witness the scenes in vhtch the boy arrives in New York nd we see him walking the streets f the great metropolis while the eething, kaleidoscopic background f buildings, traffic, and city-life hums about him. It is'a cleverly onceived, well executed idea. The most of the show drags mis- rably. Walter Catlett, as the ' Iqjid- mouthed, • wise-cracking "uncle"' vho is always Just about to pay but lever has the money, is a bit tire- ome. Guy Kibbee is excellent as he house .detective, while Joan Blondell offers an unpretentious bit f natural acting as the "girl" in he case. Had the direction been ust a little more subtle this picture might have ranged with The Bad Girl for real, human-interest melo- rama. We were much disappointed in the /incent Lopez orchestra "short". To ur untutored, unmusical ear, the nuslclans in the "Bali" reel gave ibre honest music in about two linutes than the peerless Vincent n an entire evening. We have the nconifortable feeling, always, when .'e see some orchestra-leader celerity, that he is playing first a randstand role, second a director- art. Mr. Lopez makes sure of be- ng in every scene, even when he as to crowd in at the extreme right and corner, which he does repeat- clly. It is rather disconcerting. And we are getting rather "fed p" on Laurel and.Hardy; perhaps ecause we have seen these popular omedians three times in the' last veek or ten days. At any rate, here is such a thing as getting too much of even a good thing, and we uggest to Manager Rice that he pread these funny boys over a onger period of time. They go over etter when we don/t see them too ften. JEALOUSY, : A'LONG WITH most «J of the other human passions. ias always been .ineffectively ban- led in the movies. When the. cinema gets psychologically-minded the re- ult Is usually flat failure. Not so vith Devil and the 'Deep. Here is a alkie that gets under way at the 'Bginning and goes through to the itter end. . The picture abounds in iaradoxes. In the first place, this i Tullulah Bankhead's first really iig talkie, but it Is the irony of fate hat the English character actor, Charles Laugh ton, virtually steals he show. In the second place, what s purported to be a love-romance etween' Tallulah and the handsome ary Cooper is completely side- racked by the overpowering Mo- ive, Jealousy. By the time the iappy (?) pair are drifting into mtrimony, in the final scene, all In- erest in their affair has given way o the tremendous climax of the unken submarine. Jealousy, usually only a mild form ; insanity, is .here depicted in its ast virulent stages. Commander Charles Sturm (Charles Laughton) uspects his wife of an affair with a leutenant even before she has bought of any indiscretion herself. He abuses her, spies upon her, and so degrades both himself and her hat she is virtually driven into the very extremity which, in his pols- ned brain, he has suspected her of. To further torture himself, he arranges meetings between the two and indulges, in ribald jokes, while watching the pair out of the corner of his eye. At last, driven complete- y out of 'reason, • he purposely wrecks the submarine, on which both wife and lover have been trapped. Devil and the Deep proves the old contention that the best way to kill ove is through the-channels of Jealousy, and.we must give the producers credit for having the courage to depict this ugly vice in all its ghastly horror. The suave t smiling Commander manage* to give his associates the impression of the abused husband—another characteristic of the . species of jealous homo. The wife,'in this case at least, has an alternative—and she takes It. Devil and the Deep is heavy stuff, thought (Continued from page 1.) Junior Red Cross; Mrs. Thos.
