S. Postoffices, year $2.50 WHAT HAPPENED IN THE SENATE MONDAY In the senate at Des Moines Monday a bill to repeal tax exemptions of public bonds «'<is up. Knudson, of. Hamilton, offered an amendment to tax as moneys .and credits the stock of public utility and domestic merchandising and manufacturing companies. Knudson was not trying to defeat repeal of tax exemptions. He wua supporting that. But he wanted, be- eldes, to tax the stock of el^ti-ic vervice and telephone companies and euch other companies net the Mg washing machine corporations. He proposed only a modest tax, the •moneys and credits tax, which is -about as near nil In taxation as can abe devised. We do not know all the ins and >outs, or whys and wherefores, of the Tjnaneuvering which ensued in the wenate; but there was a rumpus. On -the one hand two senators who were -.members of the interim tax reduc- •Jtion committee objected to having •fcands laid on a pet bill, and on an- «ther the representatives of the corporations were opposed to having «tocks taxed, even at the low mon- -cys and credits rate. Patterson «ould probably explain. Kralley, of Lee, moved to send the 3)111 to any standing committeo the -lieutenant governor might pick. 3Cnudson knew what that meant: ithe committee would kill hie amendment. Probably he guessed that HKraschel would pick Frailey's own judiciary committee No. 1 to look after the obsequies. Patterson now got into the fight with a substitute for Frailey's mo- •tion. He moved to send all bills on -the calendar to committees. Presumably this woujld have included the Thill Knudson was trying to amend. "What Patterson was up to is not •clear at this distance, but seemingly lie was trying to help Knudson. It •was apparently a parliamentary ruse. The showdown arrived, and Patterson's substitute was beaten; then TVailey's motion was carried, 25-20. Kraschel accommodatingly picked *Frailey's committee. The Knudson amendment will be quietly knocked in the head. Undoubtedly the corporations have their reasons. Who is Frailey? Frailey is a lawyer. Keokuk is in his county, but inert. Many people not gifted the ability to speak in ' public "Jie. hails from Port Madison. -one of the favored counties Le,e Is •which liaye a senator^ all by themselves. The population of the district is less ithan half that of Patterson's. That part of the state is old, conservative. The rich Bettendorfs are close by. TYailey js serving his 'eighth 4-year Some rec'ord! He must -senate term. 5)6 ab!e. Joe Frailey! This writer can op^pose his political principles, not him •personally. We recall him with a •gratitude that goes back to youth. Thirty-seven years ago, come March, ^ttie annual fight was on in Irving UnBtltute, Iowa City, on whether the society should continue to accept •"frat" members. Across the hall Jneanwhile the "Zets" were also deep in an annual fight — on whether they should continue ;to refuse "fratV -members! This writer, tHen' president, was one of a half dozen •"frats" in Irving Institute. To the rescue of the "frats" came Joe Frailey, "barb." Short, slight, a mere boy in appearance, he ha£ a deeip voice and was already an orator. He turned the day. Irving Institute stuck by its ancient policy. With fond recollections this writer has watched Joe Frailey's career ever since. The reader will pardon this digression of garrulous middle age. Let us 3iow turn to the Register's account of Monday's battle. The astute Clifton, political writer who wields .- a deft brush when it comes to coloring legislative stories, is again on the job. The Register gives his story the banner line, "ECONOMY BLOC WINS IN SENATE— Hold Tux Cut Seeded More Tliuu Revision — Upper nominated }n the manner previous to the primary law. A committee'consisting ,- of.. Fred Peterson, Harry, Linde, John Jongberg, William Evans, J. B. Vaughn, and L. A. Haglund was named to circulate a petition embodying the foregoing resolutions addressed to 'Senator (Patterson and Representative Bonnstetter. Editor R, S. Sperbeck was chairman of the meeting; .1. .T. Anderson, secretary. The Herald says Ralph Olson, young Ledyard farmer with "all the fire of a crusader," led the discussions. -Mr. Olson later led a similar meeting at Titonka, but whether the same action was taken there has not. been learned here. Most meetings of this kind are apt to be with sit quietly and perforce accept whatever is proposed by crusaders. This Is not meant as a personal criticism of Mr. Olson. His ability and good intentions are not doubted, and his zeal in the cause of tax reduction is to be commended. It is, however, to be noted that since he is young he can know nothing personally about pro-primary political conditions. The Advance doubts that many voters in Kossuth would agree that abolition of the primary election system would be real economy..Sober second thought, it is believed, will endorse the position of Repre,- who, though in Iowa ;ls committed against the primary system, realizes that without it we would shortly return to the system of local, county and state bossisnv.in the interest of private aggrandise- ment and private graft which flourished in pre-primary days. • . Primary elections cost something, it is true, but in the long run they are a necessary expense, and it would manifestly not be public economy, quite the contrary, to take away from the people the power to nominate their own officials and bestow the power on political bosses. The Col yum Lot's Not bo too D—(1 Serious sentatlve Bonnstetter, the democratic party Timely Topics Governor Herring's proclamation against mortgage foreclosures is without legal standing. Yet even mortgagees must feel that under the circumstances it was the wise thing to do. We are going through a period of psychological stress and storm which justifies some measure . of temporary resort to extra-legal authority. Whether one believes in the allotment plan or not, it is maddening to note how congress dawdles with it and gets nothing done. The bill which passed the house was far different from the original plan,' and the news Sunday was that the senate contemplated removal of control of production, wihlch Is the very heart of the plan. The danger at Des Molnes this winter is hasty legislation which will result in damage rather than good. Hotheads are making so much noise that they sound to weak-kneed legislators like an overwhelming majority. This is not to say that some things the agitators want are ^not good. The legislature ought; however, to t>e enough Its own master to take whatever time is required ,"to sort the good from the bad. Many toadly informed editors epeak of a "deficiency judgment law." There is no such law. When a court, enters a foreclosure decree it' reri-' ders judgment for the amount due and orders the property sold. If it doesn't sell for enough to .cover 'the judgment and costs, what is" left is the so-called deficiency, judgment. Courts cannot know in advance that there will be any such thing. Machines displace labor. The'tech- nocrats say this has gone so far^that the displaced labor can never find re-employment. In the Saturday Evening Post Caret Garret^ shows' that this theory has been raised twice before within a century and has turned out to toe false. The machines do, unfortunately, create periods of unemployment, but eventually man's ever increasing wants provide new employment. Members Defeat New Levy Typical Comment Opinion on Branch Banking, Humboldt Independent — Branch banking means that the needs of the Mouse Sill." That's a cute heading all right. „ The banner line starts the reader I?JL,*™"., out with the Impression that some designing spendthrift bloc was defeated. 'And note the top head—:. Tax Cut Needed More Than Revision. To how many careless readers •will it occur that tax cut AND revision would be nice? Not many: -hasty readers don't use their hea'ls that much, and clever •writers know it. Also note the words "defeat newspaper Jevy bill." That gives the reader an idea that a nefarious scheme for a new tax on all the people was beaten. You have to read and reread the confused story below to find out that smaller communities will be surrendered to ihe discretion of bank- era of the larger centers. Country i bank deposits will'be transferred to the larger centers and there be used as the money powers see tit to promote t'.i^ir interests. It will be another step in robbing the smaller centers of independence. Credit Where Credit Is Due. Emmetsburg Reporter — No matter what is accomplished toy the present state administration in the way of tax reduction, it must always be remembered that Governor Turner "started it," Something to Think About. Albia Union-Republican — If ; the T O THE DEPARTMENT of Agriculture, Jefferson City, Mo.—I note with Interest your appointment of a deputy bee inspector. I have a bee that might interest you. For a long time I have wanted to Inspect it myself, but inexperience and natural timidity has deterred me. Or shall I say experience? The bee of which I speak has no license nnd appears to be working out of Its district. It habitates our back yard daily, although our nasturtiums have not bloomed yet, As a matter of fact, we planted them only a week ago, because our congressman was slow in sending the seeds. The 'bee Just hovers over the little plants, apparently waiting for them quite to bloom, fatigued. By nightfall it ds Sometimes it tries to light on a. 'blade of grass to rest, but Its .brakes appear to be bad. It always oversteps its goal, then takes off again. The bee's buzz is defective, too, as If' its fife were maladjusted. It bumbles, but is not a bumble-'bee. I know Its honey cannot be up to the high standard sought by the apiary division of your department. I wish you would send your bee inspector at once. Of course, I have an ulterior motive. I <lo not wish to be indicted for harboring a stolen bee, nor Kossuth Farm Woman Writes Own Column do I state wish the honey yield of the to be affected by our tardy planting of Tiasturtiume. It may be a'Kansas bee, for all I know, and you know about these interstate cdmplicatlons better than I. If you could send your bee Inspector along within the next few days, I should feel that your appointment was entirely justified.—Taxpayer in Kansas City Star. Even the fiercest tax reductionist ought to get a laugh, grim though it be, out of that one. .SOMEONE HiAS OBJECTED to the sales tax because the consumer pays It. But the consumer always pays every tax. Whether or not you believe it depends on how far down the line of reason and common sense you can see.—Editor Jao.ua, in his Humboldt Republican. Say, we wish you could make Brother Dewel, of the Kossuth Advance, that old argumentative stickler for. the statement that the net Income tax cannot (be passed on to the consumer, see the ray of reason In. your statement .

A Kossuth rural teacher was married recently, with conflicting reports of the affair In the Advance. An Al. gona and a Burt minister were credited as officiating clergyman. An interested Minnesota reader inquires whether, in addition to the Iowa 5-day application, it is necessary to have ceremonies performed more than once. Iowa is a poor marriage market these days. TWO NEAJR-ALGONA farmers have been neighbors and trends many years. Farmer A. has two .dogs; Farmer B, none. One morning last week a strange dog came to Farmer B's, and in •the afternoon a second strange canine appeared. 'Farmer B, alarmed lest the assessor appear, fired a shot to frighten the dogs away, after gentler methods had failed. Farmer A heard the shot, later reporting that one of his dogs was hurt. -Farmer B confessed that he had not recognized .the dog. Farmer A's interpretation of the Kellogg Pact now is. "If you don't love my dog don't love me." A tip to other dog owners: . this service is free. H. S. M. makes frequent mention of his 'b. g. A western Iowa man wrote that he now had a b. g. and asked for an interpretation. The reply came: "g.' b. — glorious brat." We have no 'b. g., but we do have B. II.; B. B.; h. li.f b. b.

Then perhaps other spmpntJietlc friends, not members of the club, will patronize a greenhouse. A farm woman from the north drove to Algona last Thursday, following the light snow. Within the city limits the car skidded on a hill, hit the opposite curb, and stopped with the tail light where the radiator ought to have •been. Though she was on an • arterial .highway, .no other cars passed till her car was turned about again, no pedestrians were about, and no faces were seen in windows. The car suffered no visible damage, but the driver's fright is reported, to have warranted an audience. H. S. M.

Who in all your cinema- acquaintance could portray the blustering, bellowing side show hawker with the same breezy nonchalance as Mr. Tracy, and where, among all Hollywood feminine eligibles could you find a better type for the eccentric, temperamental "cootch" dancer than, our little dark-eyed Mexican tomale Lupe Valez? We ask you! There 4s bound to be a widely diverse set of opinions and impres- sons about The Half Naked Truth. To many,, it is just an inexcusably coarse and. vulgar portrayal of carnival life; to others, it is a tiresome, verbose exhibit of the locquacious Lee Tracy and the temperamental Lupe. But to us it is a rather intriguing story of the joys, and sorrows, trials and tribulations, ups and downs, of the "sawdust" lot. This is the story of ballyhoo, that i A new word which has suddenly girl who. learned .bitter.lessons from the ,'sprdid book of life, while Sarah (Martin's first'-wife) learned hers from living with a man who fought against 'terrific odds and won. To what depths the notole quality of loVib has degenerated in these days of "big business" was shown by comment we.heard on two occasions with reference to this picture: "When Martin was down and out, we expected Lily to 'walk out on hdm." As though this ex-dance hall girl was not capable of as enduring love as any woman! Perhaps the most dramatic scene in the picture (and one which strangely runs exactly true to history) is that in which 'Martin stands alone in the magnificent opera house he gave to the city of Denver in hia days of affluence. -Memories of his golden days pass before his vision. A triumphal march of Tannhauser (we believe that is the strain) accompanies Martin's reveries as he presents a solitary .figure on the Immense stage. 'Finally he sinks to the floor exhausted and coon dies. . .Volumes could be written about the thoughts of Lily and Sarah as 'they stand besdde the grave of Yates and his body is lowered to it's last resting place.

'Sac City Sun—.Among the principal backers of .the committee on reduction of public expenditures are wealthy men like Hubbell, of Des Moines, and Gilman. of Sioux City. That fact has caused many thinking taxpayers to wonder what really Is behind all this agitation for tax reduction. DON ELDER, who edits a IBy- the-Way column in the Washington, la., Journal, tells this one: A darky who went over the top in France came face to face with a German. Startled, the darky threw down his rifle, whipped out a razor, and made a pass at the Deutscher. "Ah," mocked the German, "never touched me!" The darky leisurely folded up the razor and returned It to his pocket. "Jus shake yo haid, boy; jus' shake yo haid." Well, Rev., That's an Original Idea!

Robinson gives a masterful interpretation of Yates Martin, vain, boastful, yet thoroughly human individual who rides the waves of popularity high when pockets are stuffed with silver his but goes into ignominous obscurity when wealth fades. There is always something pathetic about people who buy their way to popularity, only to find, when their funds are spent, that they have courted a vanishing shadow. Such a man is Yates Martin.

That's something worth thinking about. Why not one-fourth every three months? Many policyholders pay for life'insurance on the installment plan. While theoretically the burden is no different, yet in practice digging up one-fourth every three months would be easier •than a half every six months.
