THE BIG THIS WEEK HIE OUTLOOK FOR TAX UK- j £»FORM IN IOWA Speared in the Tribune: There arc two .schools o£ thought j Prices of wheat in the in Iowa as regards the tax question. So far as reduction of taxes by all conceivable moans is concerned they are one. They differ widely only on revision o£ the system. On that one. school is standpnt, the other liberal. The etandpat school would stop With reduction. It would leave the system as it is. It would keep on making property the basis of 90 per Here they !U . e ; across the silver screen, along with army maneuvers, campaign speeches and bathing beauty reviews, with np- T HIS IS BABY WEEK at the Call.

Blessed Event, current offering at ! the Call, Is the story of a Walter i AVInchell-type columnist'on a tabr !lold metropolitan news sheet who capitalizes on "blessed events" to gain readers.

Of course anyone familiar with the grain trade knows that grain prices are world prices everywhere, and that local prices differ from world prices only according to transportation costs, except when tariffs interfere. This can be pointed out now and accepted. Two weeks ago the case was different. In a political campaign it is a high crime, not to mention a misdemeanor, to expect anybody to make use of the well known bean. ordinary taxpayer. It would levy an that February ^vheat^there^te Income tax and take such additional " " *"* Bteps as may be necessary to eliminate the state tax against property. It would seek out intangibles which •now constitute a large proportion of wealth but escape taxation and compel them to carry their due share of the burden. Over a 20-year period enlightened students of the tax situation in Iowa lhave been striving to bring the ideals of the liberal school to fruition. The movement began with the creation of a joint legislative committee in 1912, or thereabouts. The ^committee made an exhaustive study and filed in able report. Nothing •was done. The interests which profited by the old system were -too strong. Ten years a.^o Goo. W. Patterson was sent to the legislature. He introduced a bill for the income tax. He began with the support of a mere baker's half dozen representatives. Defeat did not deter him. In his second and third terms he kept Tip the fight. A majority of the house came around to his opinion, ibut the Donate remained standpat. He ran for the .senate, won, -and started the battle anew there. In two session^ he came within of winning, and after Timely Topics 'exposes" an unwed, expectant mother, ruins her life, and brings near-tragedy uncomfortably close to ils own doorstep. But by exposing and leading to the death of an unscrupulous ganster-racketeer, • his course is excused, and , Blessed Event emerges as a "moral" drama. Lee Tracy, breezy, talkative, gesturing wildly, handles the part of columnist with verve and natural j enthusiasm; and gives us an Insight | into the life and problems of a "keyhole snooper." Tongue in cheek, he pays crooners a left-handed tribute designed to Increase our dislike for these radio pests. The picture Is exceedingly clever from this angle.

Princess Slips 98c No president in the history of the country ever made a more gallant fight for vindication than President Hoover's. The only parallel is Wilson's ill-fated battle for endorsement of the League of Nations. In a few years the country will reappraise President Hoover, as it did, Cleveland. Governor Roosevelt is doubtless as well aware a.s anybody that no love feast awaits him at Washington af- an ace ; tor the first year or two.

In the meantime the movement for revision of the state's outworn tax system had received great impetus from four other directions. A new joint committee had restudied trie question and reported in favor of (the income tax and other reforms. As it stands, Blessed Event is good entertainment, though it runs dangerously near the Playes censorship danger line; as when a dear old lady suddenly turns to the audience and says out of a clear sky, "Well, I'll be damned!" Most of the other dialog along the line of frankness might be excused, in the light of that convenient guise of "sophistication." Mary Brian has little to do, but the parts of editor, reporters, and private stenographers are taken by a cast well above the average. In fact, Blessed Event is a glib, well directed, capably acted piece of movie hokum, dealing, certainly, with an offspring of our modern newspaper life of not much of a credit to "mother or father" jour- alism.

A state board of tax review and assessment fcad been created. And, finally, a joint legislative committee which is Btlll functioning had been named to study means of reducing public expenses. Reform seemed to be definitely on the way. Such was the situation prior to 3ast week Tuesday, when a political tornado struck the state, swept Gov- lowa undoubtedly picked the best of the three candidates for U. S. Senator. Intellectually Mr. Murphy is far the superior of Field and Brookhart put together. That he will creditably represent the state at Washington is certain. The democrats are to be congratulated on the choice. The election outcome in the Eighth Congressional district, was a tribute to Congressman Gilchrist which must be considered remarkable. In Kossuth county he received more than 1200 votes in excess of the Hoover vote and more than 750 in excess of the Field-Brookhart vote. He also led Governor Turner by nearly 200 votes. Mr. Gilchrist ernor Turner out 'of power, defeated j has reason to feel proud of such a the liberal candidate for lieutenant I re cord. governor, and retired most of the leaders in the cause of reform. Tornadoes always play queer This one did: among others, it spared Patterson. What is the situation now? It does not look promising.

Coached by an old alumnus who is laving his life away at $40 a week n an accountant's office after leav- ng college as a football hero, Richard Cromwell determines to "feather his own nest" while the going good. Unfortunately this implicates lim in a '$10,000 ^swindle suit, and blackmails his future father-in- aw to pay hie creditors. All this eads to a screen "miracle"—hearing football hero booed from the stands when he makes his appearance on the gridiron. So far as we know this Is the first time in history that such a thing has occurred. When the truth is learned by distributing "extras" In the last quarter of the game, hisses change gltir- jouslj' to hosannas, and Richard is vindicated. But still we fall to learn the ans wer to our query: what becomes o football heroes after they leave col lege?

Fully 25 per cent of its pages was given over to intensely democratic politics. Every little thing in a democratic way was love- ty, and nothing was too absurd to <>rint If it reflected on the repub llcans. We are reminded of one of th< "Democrat's absurdities by finding it •sprinted in last week's Fenton Reporter. The other week a Swift em- ploye who 'has lived six years at Buenos Aires visited Emmetsburg and told Editor Branagan that corn at Buenos Aires was selling at 50c a bushel. That was "nuts" for Mr. 'Branagan. He played it up in half a column and no doubt made a lot of people believe that corn down there brings more than it does here, where we have "Hoover prices." . Quite Innocently, Mr. Branagan seems to have quoted the Buenos Aires gentleman incorrectly. Mr. Branagan said the Buenos Aires corn was selling at 50c in our money. It may be doubted that the IBuenos Aires gentleman said "in our money." Probably the gentleman only said "50c," and Mr. Branegan jumped at the conclusion that Ballots, Not Bullets, In America...
