CAN THE GOVERNMENT FINANCE FARM MORTGAGES 1 No one who goes to the district court clerk's office in any mklwest- ern county those days and leafs over the dockets In which suits are entered can depart without a depressed feeling. The number of farm mortgage foreclosures is appalling 1 , and when It is considered that there are still mortgages by the tens of thousands In the midwest which are delinquent but arc not yet In process of foreclosure, the realization that millions of farmers in this garden •pot of the world are bankrupt Beeme Inescapable. Whether anything can be done about It is a problem of first magnitude, Inflation of the monetary system has been strongly urged, even •In Influential quarters, but that Is a *emedy so tricky that to many stu- Ments of the question it Is unthinkable. It was, In fact, the super-in- JHation of war times that is directly ^responsible for the conditions of to- flay. Without that inflation' farm •lands would not have risen to unpre- Tcedented iheightBi '.and /loans would, •Jfcave been kept. downiito- -where- :they «ould be paid ofif In-. good-.- times, and interest,- 1 at' 'least, 'met;: in ::bad: '•fanes. - 1 ' " , >•' • :>- . •!••:"•.: 1 A« the case stands- •'hott; 'it i& to be «oubted that the principal' could eVer :*e paid, even if time were extended ••Ad the Interest met. To do it we -•hould have, to have, a io-year period of profitable prices for farm -products, and it is hardly likely that m period half that long in any line of endeavor will ever occur. Farming. like other occupations, must •"9»ave its ups and down at intervals of two or three years. There cannot be question that in the problem will solve Itself. The lands already" foreclosed, or to Jje foreclosed must ultimately drift back into the hands of 'farmers. The -real problem is how to bring this about without breaking- the present generation and waiting for a new generation to come on. If there is a solution it must lie in some means other than are available now. If the principal of the debts Is not to be scaled down (and it is to be remembered that the money represented in present loans floes not belong to 'great moguls of finance, hut to common people) f they Tinust be amortized over a long period of years. Interest rates must "fee lowered, and this In itself presents *o small problem, for money from <»rivate sources will not be available for such loans unless It is permit- •ted to earn current returns. Whether a sort of reconstruction corporation can be organized, fi- tianced, and successfully operated by government to meet this situation is •a. question which as much as any -other that at present faces this -country ought to be intensively •tudled and a determination arrived at. If this can be done, if the government can in effoct take over .such farm mortgages as cannot otherwise be 'handled, 'if payments can "fcc spread out over a period of, say, SO years, and If interest rates can be ^reduced by one-half, then the present generation of farmers can be •saved. Otherwise the outlook is IBloomy Indeed. 8DC TEARS AND OUT NEEDED FOR PRESIDENTS Whatever the result of the election may be (this is written Monday night) it ought to be helpful to bus- taess. If President Hoover has been reelected, the country knows what •to expect of him and with that as- xurance business can go forward. If 'Governor Roosevelt has been elect- Jed, business may be more hesitant but probatoly not for long. The Gov- -crnor will likely let it be known soon that he will not upset the apple •cart. He could not, of course, admit it in the campaign, but the chances are that he will in the main carry out the policies inaugurated bj President Hoover, this because little •else that is safe will be practical. Business ought to improve, for one thing, just because the election has settled things. Prom now on for a' least two years the administration mnd congress can go about nationa •affaire without taking heed of ev- «ry step's relation to politics. The bonus question can be settled without fear of its immediate effect on •votes. The national budget can be really balanced without a pre-elec- tJon makeshift. The monetary system can be protected without an to the radicals. The war debt problem and many other issues maj toe brought to a head and solved When the people's judgment is not distorted in the throes of a nationa election. If Governor Roosevelt has been elected (and as this is written it -oeems likely that he will be) the first half of his term will probablj go smoothly enough, and this will be aa it should be. Without regard to partisan considerations, the country must wish him well. Our fortunes c&nnot but be bound up to some ex- ttasj with his program, and it Is to *«Er own interest that we aid him to jtaecesg throughout his ad- miaiaf.ia.tWTL.

I'jrrj years of a term SOCIALISM I IS IT PRACTICAL IN THIS COUNTRY TODAY! . It seemed likely when this was written Tuesday night ('before the election returns were known) that Norman Thomas, the socialist candidate" for president, would poll a far greater vote than any over received before by a presidential candidate on the socialist ticket. There are many reasons for this Among them are the discontent of the times, which leads many despair- Ing people to lose confidence in both dominant parties; the personable qualities of the socialist candidate; and the slowly growing movement towards government ownership and operation of public service instrumentalities. T-,ike enough, as In the past, socialism In this country will slip back when normal prosperity is restored, but it will remain more than ever a resource when the times become bad again, this because the people as a whole are gradually becoming so familiar with it that It no longer terrifies. As 'Pope said, we first endure, then pity, then embrace. Socialism must be faced sometime In this country; not in this generation, 'but by our grandchildren perhaps. Socialism aims at paternalism on a scale never known. It would, for example, sieze the railroads, all other transportation agencies, the public utilities, including light and power systems, the telephone, the radio, and all such means of public service, and would own and operate them as the postal service is now owned and operated. 'Logically it would have -to go much farther In time; in fact it could not stop ultimately short of communism, which Is nothing but socialism in the nth degree. There is an ecstatic idealism in so- gfalism which appeals to. many plnds. Few. trouble themselves to }ook beneath the surface. The dangers of a vast extension of bureaucracy are not seen. The lack of Incentive : to invention and achievement is minimized. Above all, the reduction to the mediocrity and the sheepllke docility of a people operating under socialism is dtocouraging to contemplate. The socialist can answer these objections glibly, but at bottom his argument is not satisfying. In the present state of human nature there Is nothing to justify belief that today's system of capitalism can be abandoned In any large degree.

With Mr. Chaplin, Mr. Lloyd has not succumbed to the lure of "quantity", production, and his few contributions prove that fewer and better pictures would raise the standard of the motion picture industry. The plot' of Movie Crazy follows the lines of Merton of the Movies—the email town bumpkin who wants to crash the gates of Movieland, his trials once he gets into the sacred pre- cints, and his ultimate success after he accidentally makes a hit. Constance Cummlngs contributes in no email way to the success of the bespectacled comedian; her careless sincerity is intriguing. S'he-Jws a way of saying, "Come here, Tr,ou- ble," which expresses indifference, earnestness, sincerity, and. friendliness In a way simply baffling. As is usual In full-length comedies, Movie Crazy has only a few scattered "high spots"; in the present offering, we might say two. In the first Instance, Harold catches hia shoe in an Iron grating, then chases it through a driving rain down the gutter till It escapes his fingers and slips into a manhole Subsequent action concerns itself with his trying to raise a "one man auto top" in a torrent of rain for a young woman previously met on his arrival in Hollywood. In fact the thread of comedy action in Movie Crazy has to do with this sarnQ young woman (Constance Cummings), who supplies the love interest on the one hand and (also playing the part of a Spanish senorita) contributes a vampire element at once apparent to the audience but which completely baffles our corhedian. This bewilderment of Lloyd when the girl repeats what he has told her as she Is disguised in a movie part as senorlta is certainly a new "plot angle" which, though highly improbable, is amusing. The climax comes at the end, when Lloyd finds himself an uninvited guest at a formal dinner party and accidentally exchanges coats with a magician. In the course of the evening almost everything from rabbits to white mice come out of that coat. It is one of the nKvst hilarious scenes of unrestrained comedy ever screened in the movies. The entire show is gorgeously mounted against a background ,of mataive studio sets, and the photography Is wellmigh perfect in detail and conception. Even if you are not a comedy fan, you will have to give Mr. Lloyd credit for having worked up a clever entertainment, but you will note In his rather .studied acting, a suggestion of pathos which seems to hint that he is -borrowing a little from the stock of trade of his fellow comedian, Charles Spencer Chaplin. T HE PHANTOM PRESIDENT is noteworthy for several reasons. In the first place, it introduces the famous Geo. M. Cohan, composer, playwright, and actor, to the eilver screen -in his initial talking picture. In the second place, it follows the pattern of the current popular musical comedy (awarded the Pulitzer prize for 1931), Of Thee I Sing, and has incorporated its most intriguing song hits. Finally, The Phantom President Is clever -burlesque of our national affairs, and as such is a much more worthy contribution to Art (heaven forbid!) than the more serious and dramatic Washington Merry-Go- Round. In this we seem to disagree with Mr. Smith, cinema critic for Liberty, who gives the latter four stars and the former only three. We would reverse this order. FAMED M SHOWER NEXTT If we must have pictures decrying frightful conditions existing in our national political arena, then let. us at least pick out the most innocuou; phases, say an election, and then with tongue in cheek, go at the thing with tooth and toenall. Let's burlesque it, ridicule it, bombast it till the very rafters ring. ' Geo. M lohan and his efficient sidekick Jimmy (Schnozzle) Durante, accom plish this with a neatness and dis patch which leaves nothing to be de sired in this direction. Much has been writtejn about Mr lohan's disappointment over Holly wood and the picture industry, hov he felt completely lost in the maze of studies, gigantic sets, and fre quent changes of locale; how he dls liked the incoherence.-.of, pictures, the lack of logic, etc., etc. But he seems to have given, a fairly good portrayal of his talents In his'first appearance on the screen. His acting is sincere, studied (as behooves an.actor of his reputation), and convincing. Jimmy Durante gives the best performance of hla long and varied picture career, with a part exactly suited to his talents. "Ain't it mortifying? 1 ' his most famous expression, seems almost plausible when he uses it in The Phantom President, and he has added a long list of similar ones. The music alone Is worth the price of admission. The opening scene of a chorus trooping up the Capital steps In perfect time and rhythm, compares favorably with the many synchronizations in Love Me Tonight. Claudette .Colbert makes a beautiful, 'but (In this picture) slightly dumb, heroine. The Phantom President is not a triumph for •her, which Is perhaps satisfactory, since politics Is not the field for the fair sex. Now laugh that off!

Forty- four years ago, when the editor was a boy of 13 In the Goldfield school, Miss Richards was a teacher there, and she remained for another year. Some years before that she had taught'In the first frame schoolhouse in Wright county (built In 1861). Later'she taught many years In Arizona and Mexico. At present she is' apparently visiting near Clarion. The editor had not heard fom her before since 1889. N IGHT AFTER NIGHT gets under way with a promising start, but quickly drops into the old groove of an Improbable plot, an unlikely situation, and a top-heavy cast, till we finally mutter, as we leave, "Just another gangster picture". This "gal" Constance Cummings has some unusual opportunities to show her stuff, and she comes through in a creditable manner, though we are sorry they had to give her those hackneyed lines, so familiar to all gangster picture fans, "Get out—gat out." screeched in a high-pitched, angry, falsetto voice. Constance reaches her "heights" when she assumes the role of the sympathetic, tender, understanding- friend, which she does occasionally in Night After Night. Outstanding, perhaps, in the present production is the appearance of three distinguished and illustrious "srande dames" of screen and stage, Alison Skipworth, Wynne Gibson, and the voluptuous, sexy Mae West. This trio is the last word in breezy, naughty repartee—tough and hard- boiled as the proverbial (night) owls they are. .George Raft, swarthy, sleek epeak-easy proprietor, plays Wynne and Mae against the contrasting Constance, with the usual movie results—victory for the latter and defeat for the other two. These pure, vlrtjious girls certainly take a lot of punishment from their Ignorant, uncouth heroes which It te rather difficult to reconcile with the facta of life. That rich, flighty erstwhile heiresses should succumb to the lures of butlers and chauffeurs seems reasonable, but the odds always seem against gangsters, prize-fighters, and the cheap "sports." However, we realize our incapacity to discuss such matters with proper erudition. Our heroine comes to Raft's speakeasy because said institution is located in her former palatial borne Hans M.

They are a most Interesting stream of meteors revolving about our sun in an elon-. gated orbit. which crosses Earth's path. This stream IB traveling in a direction .opposite to that of the Earth, so they meet us head on, and we are likely to see shooting stars from the Leonid stream at about mid-November every year, If we watch for them, because there, .are straggling meteors dispersed around the entire orbit. But there is a dense swarm of the meteors .massed over a section of the, orbit measured toy millions "of miles. This dense section le sometimes called the gem of the meteor ring. Earth could pass through the wide crossing place in this gem during successive annual meetings and still find it going by like a long procession. Thus we are likely to see an unusual number of "shooting stars" from the Leonid stream for one, two, or more years tooth before and after the maximum display at the extremely dense center. 83 Years of Revolution. Astronomers have concluded, after long and careful study, that this stream requires 33 years to complete a revolution around the sun. Consequently a meeting of Earth with this dense swarm is due at Intervals of about 33 years. As Earth wends her way through them, millions of small meteors coming head on into Earth's atmosphere at various degrees of speed (In some Instances 45 miles a second) are heated to white heat and reduced to meteor dust by friction. The Leonids are retarded about three days each century by disturbing planetary Influences, which explains the variation in dates. Prediction of a shower due..In 1899, failed, but thei-e had been a er the year before. This was a'year early, and astronomers who sought to find out why came to the conclusion that Jupiter had journeyed CITY WORK GIVES OUTLET FOR LABOR ON SEWERS, ENGINE Three city projects have furnished needed work to many of Algona's common laborers In recent months. Installation of the new engine, and construction of two sewer lines, one of them extensive, accounted for nearly $4,000 in the pockets of these laborers. The contracts specified that Algona labor must be used. On installation of. the engine the city spent $625.94 for local unskilled labor. This was in addition to local labor hired by the contractor on the new addition the plant building and in .installation of cement work. The biggest amount spent was for construction of sanitary sewer No. 8, which extends three blocks south on Jerome street and thence angles southwest to Join a storm sewer near the swmmlng pool. On this project the city paid $2935.58 for local labor, with an engineering cost of $419,90. Some of the latter also went for unskilled labor. This eewer was one of the biggest projects of the kind here In. recent years. It commences at the Harry, Baker residence, two blocks east of Minnesota street. It furnishes a sewage outlet to the section.bounded by McGregor street on the north, Phillips street on the east, the .fair, grounds on the south, and Minnesota street on the west. It also furnishes facilities for the area south of Kennedy street. Most of this area has not previously had sanitary, eewer facilities. The line is 3,200 feet long..

A large crowd of relatives surprised her by bringing dinner baskets and spending the day, among them the J. P. and F. O. Stows, the W. T. and H. W. Trainers, the C. L. Phelps family, County Recorder Laura Paine, Algona, Mrs. Mary McDonald, and Mrs. Eva Godden. Mm. Stow, though not Burt's oldest resident in point of age, has probably lived h'er'e as long or longer than any other person, having moved to the community more than 50 yeare ago, when the town consisted of only one store, the depot, a blacksmith shop, a lumberyard, and two or three houses. The Stows then moved into the house, which has ever since been Mrs. Stow's home. She is the widow of the late C. P. Stow, Civil War veteran, who died in 1925. Mrs. Stow was the mother of the first child born Jn Burt, Mrs. W. T. Trainer. Despite her age, Mrs. Stow is still active and In good health. Her sie- ter, Mrs. Eva Godden, is living with her.

The most spectacular.of all 'recorded Leonid showers was that of November 12, 1833, when meteors fell thick as snowflakes. People were awakened from sleep by the brilliant shower, and many believed the end of the world had come. iNow that we have arrived at the 33rd year since the shower due in 1899 which failed to appear, eager expectancy is aroused regarding these celestial pyrotechnics. In November, 1930, and again In November, 1931, Leonids appeared in more than usual numbers, It Is possible that we ehaH be rewarded this year by the spectacular display'ahtlclpat- 'ed at the 33-year intervals. It lias been predicted by some astronomers .that the Leonids may never visit Earth again. In 1931 Jupiter was In the constellation "Leo," which means that it intercepted our view as we looked toward the constellation Leo. This giant planet is Infinitely nearer to us than are the constellations In the starry host of the heavens, and Jupiter requires practically a year of our time to traverse the area of sky occupied by each of the 12 constellations which comprise the Zodiac. It requires 12 Earth years for Jupiter to complete one revolution around the sun. Hog Stream Been Switched} This November planet Jupiter enters the sky space occupied by the constellation Virgo, and the planet Mars will intercept our view of Leo a« we, watch for the Leonids.. Isn't it possible that Jupiter and Mars, the giant and the warrior in our solar system, have exercised a dlsi turblng influence upon the Leonid stream and switched It from the or- iglnail {iky-.path? We are encouraged to believe that the Leonids etlll cross Earth's orbit, when we recall that .there have been periods of century-length and longer during which no Leonid showers were recorded. Why They Ae Called Leonids. Why are these meteors called Leonids? It is because they seem to precipitate themselves from the area of sky occupied by the "Sickle of Leo," found In th« neck and mane of "Leo" (.The Lion). 'If we arise before daylight these days we can easfcy locate Leo quite high in the eastern heavene.
