Deposits on hand before the bank goes to the department are of course tied up till the end of the year Some Kossuth banks now closed might still be doing business if such a law had been in effect at the time they closed. Much can be accomplished in a year toward realizing on frozen assets. Perhaps the real 'benefit of the law Is a feeling of confidence that It brings. There can be no bank closing for at least a year. Bankers can make more short time loans. The r reaching effect of the de-I tear of a run that forces banks to Vtheattltmlo of the aver- cnrry practically all deposits as fowwls debts.

Perhaps the biggest contribution to this frame of mind arises from settlements in liquidations of closed :banks. A debtor sees his neighbor settle on the basis of a fraction of She original loan and naturally .icomes to the conclusion that he also is entitled to a settlement o£ the «ame kind. Many of these settlements have -'•been grossly unfair. In some Instances the debtor who escaped was -well able to pay. He merely took •advantage of the time element In •(liquidating banks by holding nothing in his own name. There are *uch examples in the case of every -closed bank. Success with closed 3>anks, which are commonly regard•ed as legitimate prey by debtors, has 3ed naturally to attempts at escape jirom debts of private parties. Thus «, Ibreakdown of moral credit was jstarted. In the good old days practically anyone's note for $100 or more was good at the bank without security. All that was necessary was to ask, aign, and spend the money. Money was easy and could be repaid without much effort, or the loan could •tie renewed. But this present attitude of escaping liability for debts has caused fcanks and other loan agencies to ^require credit statements and security for even small loans formerly made without question. The banks have been forced to protect their depositors. Even, with good security St is difficult to secure a loan now unless the "moral" security is also good. There should be an effort on the MILLION M011E MONEY NOW THAN IN 1920 There is a billion dollars more currency in circulation now than there was'in 1929, Franklin W. Fort, chairman of the federal home loan bank system, with headquarters at Washington, 'D. C., told a Des Moines audience Saturday. Inflation of the currency is not a cure for the depression, Mr. 'Fort said. One big help would be a general feeling of confidence that would lead to the releasing of credit reserves now dried up. iMoncy In circulation in 1929 totaled 4/746 millions. If Mr. 'Fort's statement Is correct the circulation now would be 6,74-6 millions. This would toe the largest amount of money ever in circulation in this country. The largest preceding year was 1920 with 5,467 millions. Circulation in 191S, was 4,481 millions, and in 1919 was 4,876 millions. Evidently there is something radically wrong with the inflationists' theory of "More money, more prosperity." If that be true, then this country should now be enjoying its greatest period of prosperity. Timely Topics A group of sheriffs appeared at the legislature last week in an effort to keep mileage allowances -for the sheriffs on a higher rate than that allowed for other county and state officials. Under the present arrangement the sheriffs are paid 10 cents a mile and other officials 1 cents. Under the new bill passed last week, which was not changed by the plea, all officials are on the same basis at 5 cents a mile. The local bar association resolu- jiart of every person who hopes to j tlon against deficiency judgments •make good in future to pay his debts in full under present conditions. and receiverships is a move In the right direction. The resolution wise- Thls depression cannot last forever, | IV limits its^ action toj'farm" fore•and one who dodges liability for ' " debt now will be a marked man. Bankers and loan agencies do not lorget these things. • When the hard times are past the vSnan who has proved in depression that his word is as good as his bond will be able to borrow on his personal note but the dodger, the de- jfrauder, and the cheat will be remembered, and his smart tricks, •which gained a momentary advantage, will be a millstone around his financial neck. WALTER MPPJfAN'S VIEW ON CURHENCT INFLATION closures. (Loan companies made loans on a basis of 50 per cent of value, and should bear a share of the loss when values drop below that amount. A bill to authorize county supervisors to Issue scrip or stamped money will be introduced in both the house and senate of the state legislature in the near future. The plan contemplates eliminating the poor fund levy and substituting scrip. 'Stamps would cost two cents and be issued by the county treasurer. Scrip money is simply another taxing measure, for it is necessary to place a two cent stamp on each dollar. The let's Not be too D—d Serious MODERNIZED VERSION OF THE ANCIENT MARINER [Marshalltown Times-Republican.] It was the Ancient Hired Man; He stopped the Wedding Guest, AVho looked into that glittering eye And beat upon his breast. "Hark ye," then 'spake the Wedding Guest. "Why hold me in a spell?— Thou stranger with the maniac mien, •Like ghost escaped from hell." Upspake the ragged, shivering wretch: "Hear me all ye who can; I am a Ghost of Yesterday, I am the Hired man." "The owner called me In last night (I had no fear of harm); Eftsoon in .accents wild spake he, And gave to me his farm. "And now about my neck Is hanged The mortgage and Its lose, And eke its d—d deficiency, Like that dead albatross." * * * The bride has paced into the hall, Alight with love and charm: 'God aid thee, Ancient Hired Man, And all who own a farm." The Wedding Guest has gone hi* way, The bassoon ceased to sound; They took the Hired Man away, And laid him In the ground. The while they laid him down to rest, Freed -from his toil and pain, His voice rose thru the mould to say, 'They can't foreclose again!" At the Call By T. H. C. Wherein Journalist Meets With Scrumptiious Nose. [Damfino In Perry Chief.] Perhaps I shouldn't tell this. However, If It had happened to someone >Ise, and I heard about it, I could never have resisted. So why not tell on myself? You remember a week or so ago, when there was so much Ice on the streets? I drove up Second street at a pretty .good rate of speed. Just as I come to the corner of Wai-ford I overtook another car with a lady driver. She started to :urn left at the intersection without giving an arm signal, and I had speeded up intending to pass her. I jammed on the brakes and skidded. She saw me coming, and put on the brakes and skidded, and we stopped right side by side crossways of the intersection. I was naturally shook into a spitting sputter, and I leaned over to the window and shouted in the voice of an army top sergeant: "Where's your hands, lady?" She didn't even hesitate. She just lifted her left thumb to her pretty nose and said, "There's one of them!" A CLERGYMAN in an eastern city was recently asked if he thought it proper for women to wear pajamas. He quoted J>euteronomy 22-5: "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth to the man.' —Editor W. F. Miller in Uvermore Gazette. We have never seen a woman dressed in men's clothes, or in women's clothes fashioned after men's, who we thought looked well. The other day the papers carried a picture of the said-to-be-lovely Marlene Dietrich in a man's suit, and to our notion she looked like heck. T HE INTRODUCTORY strains of the haunting and' seductive Llebesti-aum fall to place Tonight Is Ours among the romantic classics of the screen. The fault, dear 'Brutus, rests entirely with the director, who fails to achieve the Lubltschlan touch so essential in fragile, frothy confections of Graustarkian love. This is not to say that the lovely and alluring Claudette Colbert is not as charming as ever, nor that the dauntless, romancing Frederic March is not as gallant .and chvialrous as of yore; but somehow, somewhere, in the unreeling of thin picture the slender thread of plausibility is lost, hopelessly lost, and the result Is that each stretch of utterly stupid dialog glares at you, each tender scene of boudoir gallantry goes awry, and tho whole production takes on the aspect of a rather cheap bedroom farce. At least that was our reaction to this highly touted talkie. Oh, viewed simply as an entertaining and -amusing piece of Impossible screen romance, Tonight Is Ours fulfills Its mission. But, looked at from any other angle, the thing is just so much bushwa, as they used to say In the good old days of the silent pictures. Buehwa, my dears, and nothing else. There are two close-up shots of "Frederic near the end of the picture, so close that only his pleading eyes are visible, staring at you with calf- like tenderness that make you wonder just what was in the bewildered director's mind.Was the director try- Ing to make a ecreen-lover out of our hero? Remember, Mr. March took Academy honors in 1932 for his Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, not as a gay, young lover. And Frederic's last speech, as he turns to the queen, who has just asked him If he could consent to marry into royalty and says, "I am willing to make the sacrifice," falls pretty flat without a lot of clever, subtle directing. The music Is the best thing about this production, unless Claudette is a favorite of yours and you are willing, 'to forgive, everything for a chance to see this beautiful woman abandon herself to transports of love. At that, these queens get away -with a lot, admitting men to their boudoirs. But then, that's the way they do things in Hollywood. What Editors Arc Saying There are two kinds of money: 1. Currency; 2. Bank deposits. The | The Times-Republican editorial- great bulk of business Is done with j izes on the glee felt by "tax reduc- checks against deposits, using no currency. Only •with currency. one-tenth is done Currency inflationists want to in•crease currency; others say what Is needed is credit inflation via increase in bank deposits and restoration of business confidence to make •use of the deposits via loans. Which is right? To get the answer you •have to find out which is down, currency or bank deposits. 'It is not currency that is down, *ecau66 we have increased the currency from 4.8 billions at the height =of the 1929 boom to 5.7 billions now, and It hasn't done the business by Increasing prices. We have more currency now than is needed. Banks can't force it out into circulation. How about bank deposits?—They Slave decreased from 58.8 billions in 1929 to 46.1 billions now—off nearly 13 billions, more than 25 per cent. This demonstrates that it Is bank ••credit, not currency, which needs in. nation. More currency would Indeed grav- tionists" on defeat of the "tax eaters" as exemplified by Senator Patterson, and continues the battle cry of special privilege for reduction in taxes. The smoke screen of reduction is cleverly brought out to dub the revisionists "tax eaters." Income taxes would hurt special privilege groups, but tax reduction would be an easy and chocolate-coated pill for them to swallow. That "new tax" tag they are hanging on the income tax group is clever, but will not fool the farmer who needs tax reform along with tax reduction. Typical Comment Let the Democrats Have the Jobs.

MEW BANKING LAW SHOULD REVIVE CONFIDENCE. The new law authorizing the etate banking department to take over and operate as a going institution any bank which .fails or is ready to fail is apparently a move in the port of party candldafes. "To the victor belongs the uoajis' should be as emphatic with d>\jnni>crats as it has been with republican leaders all the years the latter were'in the saddle. HnrlP, th.

T HE MATCH KING, or "From Gutter to Gutter," as the secretary sorrowfully muses over the prostrate body of his master in the final scene, suffers In comparison with "Silver Dollar." Both purport to be real biographies of men who rose from aibject poverty to fabulous wealth and died penniless; both follow the same general scheme of life —hard work, anxious days, toll, then sudden wealth, women, Influence, finally the grave In ignonimous defeat. Edward G. Robinson, In Silver Dollar, gives us the story of Tabor; Warren William attempts that of Ivar Krueger, Match King of Sweden; but he really gives us only an entertaining story of one Warren William, crook, swindler, spendthrift. This is where the two screen plays differ. There Is a striking- similarity between Match King and Skyscraper Souls. Both ehow Warren William j in the same role of big business man and philandering fRomeo. As Swedish tycoon, Mr. William repeats one thought, "Bori'tVorryA till it 'happens; then leave It all to me." Between direction of enormous commercial enterprises, he spends most of his time in the arms of some siren. Lila Damlta is the principal among assorted women in the play, but she puts little of the earnest sincerity of the noble, loving woman into her portrayal. She is badly miscast and flattens out lamentably in the end. The other women are but vague shadows, puppets whom the Match King uses for sinister ends. How much of the story is authoritative we are not prepared to say, but several incidents, notably the forgery of Italian bonds, seem to link the story with facts. What we object to is Warren William's inability to subjugate his own personality In a sufficient degree-to make it the biography of another personage. Sonife-blame (or the deficiencies of this talki^ should be placed,on the director, who' missed opportunities, ito score heavily. Most glaring Is the panorama of the match-king's past, as It flashes before his eyes just be- for his death. This kaleioscopic sequence Is too long drawn-out, it should have been shortened and more confused, as It would normally be In a man's mind at such a moment. One of the most outstanding '•'shorts" of the year is shown in a technicolor musical comedy. Tee,»for Two, a really beautiful and diverting act, well produced in gorgeous color. Let's have more of these. /"1EORGE GAMjARNO, of Plain VJ Talk, Des Moines, says that in answer to critics who complained that there was nothing In Mr. Herring's Inaugural address about beer the governor has given out a statement that he stands squarely on the Chicago democratic, beer plank. The governor's idea, says Mr. Gallarno, was to get tax reduction and other immediate state needs looked after, and then take up remaining questions In special messages to the legislature. Mr. Gallarno goes on to eay: "Governor Herring might declare for immediate action on beer, but his demanding would be nothing more than a gesture till congress acts. "If congress adopts the resolution now before that body, submitting the question of repeal of the 18th amendment, we believe our legislature, if then In session, should immediately act to get an expression of the people. If congress makes legal the sale of beer containing.3.2 or 3.5 per cent of alcohol, our legislature, If In session, should Immediately act .on the question of modifying its laws in accordance therewith. "There Is a good old autograph album motto which reads, 'Never trouble trouble until trouble troubles you,' and, despite all that may be said or done, Governor Herring would do well to stick to his apparent belief that he should not unnecessarily stir up the sleeping lions in the prohibition camp." E DITOR M. L. CURTIS, of the Knoxville Journal, expresses an opinion concerning Governor Herring's mortgage foreclosure proclamation which many others, though doubtless not a majority, hold, in the following' criticism, which this paper neither endorsee nor condemns but merely presents as one of the angles of.a subject currently debated: "Governor Herring's attempt to proclaim a moratorium on mortgage foreclosures looks more like a bold bid for political support than a real effort to be helpful in the strained economic situation in this etate. Just what doea-the'governor expect sheriffs and judges to do when foreclosure actions come 'before them? He knows well enough that they have no discretion-In-the matter. Their oaths of office are just as binding on them as is Governor Herring's. Why pass the buck to them? And why give encouragement to organized resistance to law? Regardless of the sympathy most people feel in the present emergency for the farmers who forcibly resist due processes of law, It is scarcely the province of the chief law-enforcing officer of the state to encourage lawless procedure." J UST. TO EVEN THINGS up as regards the Knoxville Journal's comment on Governor Herring's anti-mortgage foreclosure proclamation, the following from W. J. Casey's Knoxville Express—the Journal is republican; the Express, democratic—may ibe quoted: "How times change, along with, prices and other things! Gov. Herring's proclamation, calling upon holders of mortgages on real estate or personal property to refrain from foreclosure, marks the beginning- of a new era. What would have been thought of such a proclamation ten years ago? The truest thing in the evolution of laws and customs is that "new occasions teach new du- ti?s;"' . CusXpm's '.; ai}d ; habits ( and modes of thought are brushed'aslde when they no longer serve. And the same is true of men and governments and political ad financial systems." HAS BEEN Introduced In •*• the legislature a 'bill to repeal the 6-day marriage license application law. You g-et a slant at why It Is bitterly opposed from such, newspaper reports as this by 'Editor J. M. Gass in the Albla News: "More than BOO marriage permits were issued to Iowa people at (Lancaster, Mo., and perhaps that many, more or fewer, at each of several other county seats across the state Ine, including Unlonvllle, Bethany, Albany, Marysville, and point* in Nebraska and Illinois. No wonder Iowa has a much reduced marriage record! And Just what good has been accomplished Iby the sacrifice? MAIL ORDER CATALOGS DISTRIBUTED BY CARS Forty-two hundred Montgomery- Ward catalogs from a carload shipment were brought to Algona toy truck Tuesday morning from Emmetsburg and were distributed to men wltih cars for delivery to Koe- suth and Humboldt people who had asked for them. The company which did the printing advertised in A N IMPORTANT consideration In pictures like Air Hostess la that you don't expect much, and hence are not disappointed. How many times you go to a highly touted screen production and come away with the feeling that you've been gypped, simply because hopes have been raised far in excess of merits. 'Air Hostess js decidedly a second- rate show. But we can't expect turkey and goose every day. This play concerns itself with airplanes and young women who serve as porters in transcontinental air service. As a matter of fact, however, little footage is thus consumed, for the plot revolves around the domestic difficulties of Evelyn Knapp, James Murray, and a voluptuous elren no other than our friend Thelma Todd, who disgraced herself in a similar role with Buster Keaton. In common with pictures of this type, the thing ends with a thrilling smash-up in which a plane la wrecked. The plane hits a telegraph pole and lands directly on the tracks of a speeding train. The train is spectacularly stopped and hero and heroine are miraculously brought into each other's arms. Ths seems to be the object of 95 per cent of screen, plays, good, bad, and indifferent. The shorts In connection with Air Hostess, in keeping with the feature, serve only to accentuate mediocrity. Just what fills theaters for shows like thin, and what keeps customers away from really worth-while productions, would make a good subject for a thesis. (But we'll leave that to better minds. E DITOR W. R. PiREWITT, of the Forest City Summit, says: "The state legislature can stop all mortgage foreclosures, and that to what Is going to happen If the mortgage and Insurance companies do not listen to Governor Herring's proclamation. It may not only be an extension of four or five years on sheriff's deeds, but the state legislature has the power to make it 25 if it so chooses." That's quite true, but what the legislature can't do Is to force loans on Iowa land, which is something for cool heads in and out of the legislature to keep In mind. (Loan agents,, we think, recognize that the present situation 'Is''abnormal '• and are'>prepared~-tb'stand' for.-anything reasonable; and that, as we understand it, is all that most farmers are asking for. F RANK JAQUA, of the Humboldt Republican, cites a forceful illustration to show why there is unrest among farmers when in the matter of foreclosures leads to action approaching rioting: ••"A farmer near -Ringst^ed recently SPECIALS Navy Beans, 10 Ibs. _____ Pancake Flour, 3 1-2 Ib. bag ---------------- 18c Clorax, per bottle ______ 18c Fancy Pantry Pickles jar 19c Large Catsup __________ 10c Popcorn, Japanese hulless, 5 Ibs. ----------- ___ Malt-O-Meal __________ 19 C Rye, Graham, Flour, 8 Ib. sack . --------------- 3LBS.

Add to this the shrinkage on grain and general produce, and you realize what is the matter with the farming population today." I T ISN'T WORTH while to argue with people who expect the times to improve immediately when and because the new administration takes office, but this from P. A. Olson, of the Story City Herald, who In the Colyum figures occasionally as Pa" Olson, expresses the view of persons who think they are better Informed : "There was no sensible reason for expecting a (business revival Immediately after the election. The revival will come sooner or later, but not because of the recent election, or any other election. It will come when the processes of deflation are checked or completed ,and when the cost of government and the tax rate get down on a level with the cost of labor and of commodities."
