Now, we'll bet the janitor expense will be about as much a.s rent, heat, lisht, water, and janitor in the old quarters, to say nothing of interest on Uncle Sam's $00,000 investment, repairs, etc. And not a postal card more to mail! Iowa Falls Hard Hit. Truer Star-Clipper—Iowa Falls, formerly one of the most prosperous cities of its size in Iowa, is surely hard hit. All the banks h^ye closed. A quarter of the real estate of the city is advertised for wile for taxes. There are around 1,200 people in the sight i.s lost of the urgent need of, city receiving public aid—more than tax reform. '\V<> need to sot away from a system where property stands nine-tenths of the burden and other wealth mostly o.sc-app.s. On this issue the present committee is Bilent, but the reports of the commi- tees of pre-war time and three or four years ;igo are still eloquent. WHAT TO DO AHOUT THE DE- FIOIENOV JUDGMENT? The following paragraph is taken from the Traer Star-Clipper: "We are against the deficiency judgment. It .should be wiped out l>y the coming legislature, or at least .modified and limited greatly. As it a fourth of the population. Conditions are bad in Traer, but nothing like thi.it. How to Amend 1'rlmary law. K.stherville News—There is constant bombardment of the primary. Old guards would repeal and revert to the convention system. That would not be wise, and the people would not approve. In the main, the primary is all right, but amendment would be desirable. One change most desired is taking from the ballot minor state offices. Outside of governor, and perhaps lieutenant-governor, the average man knows little about the other candidates for state Add Troubles Managing- Editors, [Hampton Chronicle.] One of John Carey's first 'battles with an irate business man after he •became managing editor of the Sioux City Journal was to convince the aforesaid business man, who was charged with bootlegging, that such important news matter could not be kept out of the newspaper. The business man told John by all that was good and holy that his record as a "mm" bootlegger was spotless, but as John looked at the records and the police raiding squad report he decided that all bootleggers must be liars. Anyway the Journal contained a full account of the raid.

The Christmas show was called As the Devil Commands, and it was followed next day by The Devil is Driving. Bot'h were considerably above the average, and, being new ilcturcs, call forth the comment hat we have much to look forward to during the hectic year of 1933. Inasmuch as editors find it convenient to take a rest during t'he holidays and H. S. M. is taking a vacation on a sickbed, perhaps It tvould be well for this critic to lay aside his "hammer and tongs" and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We will review only entertainments which seem to merit extensive criticism. The two shows above were simply good entertainment, and may pass without particular comment except to say that both stories and acting were considerably above par. A MONO RATHER UNUSUAL of•**• ferings of the holiday season at the Call we must mention If I Had a Million, a talking picture cake in which no less than seven director- cooks and at least a dozen stars had a hand. It is an interesting, different concoction, and its chief defect is its lack of sustained interest, though the slender thread of .plot somehow keeps the fragile thing together. The story has to do with an eccentric multi-millionaire (Richard Bennett) who puts off death (as only the movies can) till he may distribute his fortune of seven millions to seven unknown persons whom he picks at random from a telephone directory. The manner in which these seven beneficiaries use their millions Is the plot.
