There are a hundred, maybe a thousand, other- angle*, which we of the mid-west, unaccustomed to problems of finance, cannot see In advance, or even understand. And this Is what President, Hoover meant — and Governor Roosevelt would confirm him but for political expediency—when he said: "Thousands of our people, in their bitter distress and losses today, are saying that 'things could not be l-the-county points named under No. worse.'

PRESIDENT HOOVER OW WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED Tne present generation -has never .read or heard a more powerful address than President Hoover's at Des Moines last week Tuesday. .Bryan's "cross of gold" speech was .*. greater oration, and Wilson's speeches were perhaps more pol- 4shed, but for marshalling of facts, tor masterly interpretation, for sheer power to convince, there has toeen nothing to compare with the ^Hoover address within the memory f persons now living. Of nothing was this more true mote understanding of the forces which confronted this country during these last 18 months ever utters that remark . . . Let no man tell you that It could not be worse. It could be so much worse that these clays now, distressing as they are, would look like veritable prosperity." LET US PAY. TRIBUTE THE PHARMACIST TO Attll6 A Review of th* Ret*ntTiikiei by T. 1 1 I* . t i .•', is. »r" •V * D IVOKOB..-m THE JPAMlLIf is ' one of those domestic Gordldn knots which becomes more compll* cated and involved as the action progresses. We see Little Jackie Cooper first with (Lewis Stone), a his real scientist, father doing research work in the desert. Jackie's father and mother have been divorced, and when the youngster goes home he finds he has a new daddy (Conrad Nagel). -His real papa was lenient and tolerant; his new pater stern and .exacting. Of •than the president's summary of ^problems growing out of the depression and measures taken to meet -them. It took more than five col- of newspaper space to cover this section of the address. Yet while icveryone, Including reluctant Roose- supporters, felt the power of the •president's reasoning, there were doubtless few familiar enough with finance to understand him thoroughly and grasp the full meaning «f his remarks. The remarkable revelation that at one time in the course of the gold •drain of last winter the treasury re-ported free gold enough to last only two weeks longer is an instance of what few could understand. Why were we in danger of having to go off the gold standard when we had billions of gold, literally billions -more than any other country except JTrance, more, aside from France, than all the other counties of the world put together? The president did not go into details on this, but the reason was Bimply this: Our money system re- •Hulred that every dollar of Federal Heserve paper money have behind it 100 cents worth of gold and eligible -commercial paper, with not less than 40 per cent of gold. That meant that we could have up to 60 per cent of eligible commercial paper. Now, last winter, because of the times. there was a scarcity of eligible paper, only about enough for 25 -cents back of every dollar of Federal Reserve money in circulation. Therefore the amount of gold se- Questered to stand back of the paper rose to 75 cents for every dollar; that is, 75 cents In gold for every •dollar of 'Federal Reserve currency liad to be kept laid away and could mot be used for anything else. It took most of our gold to keep this reserve, which meant that in «pite of our billions we had comparatively little free gold, that is, gold •not tied up in the reserves. Yet we :fcad to meet a situation in -which tooth scared foreigners and our .own '-irlghtened people were demanding gold. The foreigners took away nearly a billion and a half, and our own people hoarded another billion •and a half of money. Thus we -tinally got down to where, at the rate of demand at the time of which the president spoke, we had a free gold supply, that is, a supply above the req'uired reserves to keep the <paper money good, large enough to last only two weeks more. How this situation was met and overcome is another story, into which, for lack of space, we cannot «ro. It is sufficient to say that if nothing had been done and the de- 3nand had continued, the time would !iave come, and that quickly, when the United States treasury would . liave had to deny demands for the 'redemption of our paper money in .gold; and at that very instant we should have gone off the gold standard, and not a dollar of our currency would have been worth its tace. The only thing that keeps our intrinsically worthless paper money good is that anybody who wants to exchange it for gold can always do BO at par. What difference would this have *nade? — It would take a book to answer. History has told the story over and over again. People would Slave lost confidence in paper mon- iey, just as they did in the case of the greenbacks. They would have taken it to the banks and demanded gold; ithey would have hoarded the gold. Foreigners trading with us would have demanded gold. Gradually our gold would have drained away, and only the paper money unbacked by gold would have remained in circulation. In the meantime people who had to have gold would have had to buy it with more •and more paper money ; that is, gold would have gone to a premium. Once it took more than two dollars In greenbacks to buy a dollar in «old. In Germany only a few years ago, towards the end, it took a dray- load of paper money to buy a dollar In gold. And now, as just one angle — only one angle, we repeat' — of the situation that would have resulted, the reader can understand what the president meant when he said that going off the gold standard would have "meant disaster to every person who owed money." Why? — dimply because the great bulk of indebtedness in this country is by contract payable in gold, and every man who owed and had to pay money on such a contract, and did not have the gold, would have had to ouy it with twice as many, three times as many, nobody can know how many times as many, paper dollars! Think of that on top of the present situation in which prices (contrary to popular opinion, it is goods which have fallen, aot money •which has risen, in value — but that, The eighth congressional district get-together of druggists here yesterday, and the window displays in the local drug stores, make appropriate something in the way of a tribute to the pharmaceutical profession. This is one of the oldest professions in the world. All things living are subject to sickness and disease. Among the first 'gropings of man must have been the searching out of healing drugs. Naturally some men became more expert than others, and thus the profession took its rise. " It Is only a few hundred years since the apothecary was also the dentist, the doctor, and the surgeon. Medical knowledge Was alow in accumulation. It has made more progress in 200 years than in all history before. The pharmacist is today the first lieutenant of the physician. It is he Who compounds with painstaking care the medicines prescribed by the doctor. Modern knowledge requires that he be an expert, and accordingly he must acquire a .technical education and a license before he can practice. It is remarkable in view of the number of deadly drugs, and 7 the nicety with which prescriptions must be prepared, that fatal mistakes are extremely rare. For accuracy the modern pharmacist • is unexcelled in all professions, and is seldom equalled. Timely Topics We^are convinced that President Hoover will carry Iowa. On the national result we remain in doubt. Yet It is certain that a swing to the president is taking- place under cover. Were the choice a month farther away, reelection might be predicted with confidence. Hoover did not widely miss mark. The contrast between We are greatly mistaken if Senator Reed's much heralded reply to the the president's masterly and statesmanlike address and the petty nature of the Reed attack was really painful. Evidently President Wilson had Mr. Reed sized up right. Governor Roosevelt's continued silence on the bonus question is not to his credit, particularly when contrasted with the courageous etanda of President Hoover and ex-Governor Smith. iRoosevelt is doubtless at heart opposed to the bonus, but he does not dare to say so without equivocation, for fear of losing votes. The attorney general of Iowa has ruled that there must be a separate column on the ballot for every independent candidate. If that, ruling holds, this year's ballot will be like a blanket in size. The ruling may be in accordance with law, but It is foolish. , Governor Turner is assured of reelection by a plurality, if not a majority, but it is disheartening to note, in the Des Moines Register's straw vote, that there are still some thousands of voters who favor the notorious Long. If votes must be thrown away, in the name of decency In politics, let them go to Herring. In the Interest of tax reduction it is proposed in some counties to reduce the number of supervisors from five to three. In 12, 16, and IS-townahlp counties, that seems reasonable, but in so large a county as Kossuth it is not likely that the people would long be satisfied. course, the youngster favors a tolerant attitude—what Child does not? But Is it best for the child? Being somewhat of a disciplinarian our- self, we must admit that entire sympathy is with the new father and his attempt to force his step-son to obey. Lois Wilson as mother seems to have no definite ideas about child raising—seems a bit undecided, indeed, about 'her new matrimonial choice. 1 Things 'go from bad to worse with Papa 1 and Papa 2 doing their best to make life miserable for Jackie. Then blood transfusion from Papa 2 to Jackie's elder brother Al settles, things for some unknown reason, and Papa 1 sails for South America, seemingly content that he •has messed things up enough but that Conrad is fully capable of managing things in a-satisfactory way at home. The only semblance of real acting Is contributed by little Jackie Cooper, but even this is marred by the youngster's continued efforts to get a shock of hair' out of his eyes. Divorce In the Family is juet "one of those things." T HEY PUULED AN OLD ONE out of the bag when they gave us Strictly Dishonorable. We have never seen the successful stage play from which It was taken, and we didn't sit out the talkie; but we saw enough to convince us that much of the naive undecurrent- of the stage production was lost on the screen. The part of the little country girl (Sidney Pox) who wanted to .see city life and experience its thrills was well played, but the husband and the slightly addled old Judge (Lewis Stone) overdid their parts to the point where the action dragged woefully. Paul Lukas, however, contributed his usual sauve performance, and If he ran true to form got better as the picture progressed. Perhaps it is because this was the third of a trio of decidedly mediocre talkies that we are able to say so little for it. L OVE ME TONIGHT strikes a new note in musical comedy technique—the perfect synchronization of plot and music in as flawless a gem of entertainment as has graced the silver screen since the memorable dciys of Golddiggers of Broadway. Instead of having a chorus introduce the song hits we have a novel medium in Love Me Tonight: Maurice hums and sings the intriguing ditty first in his shop, a customer carries it to the street, taxi- driver whistles it to his patron who takes it to a troop train where soldiers sing it marching through the country-side, introducing It to a band of gypsies who finally sing it •to a princess mooning on her solitary balcony. In another instance, the song be- Ih a, moonlit garden; eo'perhaps we ought to make allowances for the light-hearted Maurice. • At Any rate, Love Me Tonight Is all that musical comedy lovers wish, tt opens ah avenue entirely closed to' the stage, In the rapid shitting of scenes and the easy sequence of songe by individual members of the cast. Whether-you have-ever liked the Frenchman in former pictures, it Is a safe bet that you enjoyed this talkie. A FTER TWELVE WEEKS of war and bloodshed replete with tortures kidnapings, insults, and ignominy, the two fair heroines of The Last of the Mohicans (serial "thrillers" at the Call) finally emerged from their gruelling: orgy Saturday night with their locks perfectly coifed, their velvet dresses unwririkled, and their lovely dispositions apparently unruffled by harrowing adventure. ' It is one of the tributes to unsung womanhood, this nonchalance with which colonial feminity braved the dangers and terrors; of the dastardly French, the blood-thirsty redskins, and the rigors of the frontier.-Well may the modern maid, sitting at a bridge table and counting up her and a le Culbertson, look back with sigh of genuine relief to her less ortunate sisters of a couple of cen- urles ago who were dragged shame- ully over rocks by 'Magwa, Indian hief and villain de luxe. And the urprislng part of it is the way hose colonial dames kept their mar- els intact and their velvet dresses teamed while waging ceaseless arfare against the savage tribes' of he forest. Alas, modern clviHza- ion is Indeed on the down grade. EX-KOSSUTH SCHOOL HEAD WINS DEGREE Union Twp., Oct. 11—M. K.

Council Minutes Change Can't Cure Depression is another story) are so low that it already takes many [Sioux City Journal.] Taking the American people on the average, the psychology of their voting will be because of the unhappy conditions now obtaining and the desire for a change in administration. There are hundreds of thousands of .voters, men and women, who actually believe that the moment Gov. Roosevelt went into the White House a great change in conditions would come. They are confident that, indeed, "happy days" would be here again. Every good citizen, regardless of party affiliations, would like to see such a transformation if Gov. Roosevelt were elected. All sensible persons, however, would know that the miracle had not been wrought by the new administration and that the only good effect the change could have would be to inspire the people as a whole to co-ordinate their own abilities in the direction of recovery. That, too, would be pure psychology, not a miracle worked by the new chief executive. •President Hoover did not bring the depression. He did not make it worse. Intelligent judgment seems to agree that he prevented a national disaster. If. Al Smith had been elected in 1928 he would not have been responsible for the depression that surely would have fallen upon the country, yet the psychological verdict would have been that he brought the nation to ruin. Democrats everywhere are to be congratulated on their 1S2S defeat. If they had won then, they might not have recovered in half a century from the condemnation of the American people arrived at most gins in a dream, is then sung by various members of the cast in their preparations for a new day Director Reuben Mamoulian has caught the wistful charm of the audacious Maurice to an even more artistic degree than the talented Ernst Lubttsch and has transferred it to the screen in all Its delicate shadlngs of expression. Love Me Tonight, because it ie nojrel perfectly directed, capably acted and artistically photographed stands as one of the high lights of the 1932 screen season. Maurice Chevalier is a tailor, who makes 20 suite for a Vicomte. Unable to collect he goes to castle o the uncle of his debtor, poses as a baron for expediency, falls in love with the Princess, and eventually wins his sweetheart, a la musica comedy style, when she overtakes train on horseback and claims he hero. Director Mamoulian has given th rhythmic Maurice a huge castle se1 with a bewildering array of glgantl doors, sweeping stairways, and stupendous ball rooms in which to frolic tunefully In perfect time with a heavenly orchestra. No detail has been overlooked. A trio of ladies-in- waiting surround the princess, while a triumvirate of outstanding males (Charles Ruggles, Charles Butterworth, and C. Aubrey Smith) dogs the steps of the unfortunate Maurice. The lovely Myrna Loy is simply thrown in for good measure, and what a measure it is. The only illogical feature of the picture is the Algona, In., September 29, 1932— City council met in regular session on this day at the-city hall, and among other things allowed the following bills: ELECTRIC FUND J.
