This unsupported assertion has, •tfor some years been the chief stock I served. tin -trade of opponents of the pri- The recent collusion among farm- war flgUfre will sink Into relative Insignificance." THE TWO-YEAB^MOIIATOBIUM ON FORECLOSURES T'he legislature has passed a mortgage foreclosure relief act, It lias •been signed >by Governor Herring, and it is law. The law doee not prevent fore- pre ivev closures. It does, however, permit the mortgagor living on the land to remain till .March 1, 1035. On foreclosure, however, an automatic receivership is set up under supervision of the court In which the decree is obtained, and Income from the land must be applied towards taxes, Insurance, and maintenance of the property, This law will not satisfy radical farm agitators, but it perhaps does all that could be done with an eye to the interests of both debtor and creditor, and certainly It goes nearly, if not quite, as far as it is safe to go if farm credit is to be pre- mary system. Daily papers mouth it, and subservient weeklies repeat it like trained parrots. The statement Is misleading in -tliat 'It assumes that the object of adoption of the primary system was to produce better public servants. That Is historically untrue. The •main object was to destroy corrupt foossism. (Recommending the- system to the general assembly in 1904, ^Governor Cummins said: "There Is practically no fraud, ^dishonesty, or even unfairness in •nUie conduct of general elections, but tho manner in which caucuses, 3>arty primaries, and other proceedings leading up to nominations are : §i<sld, and the practices which •tend them In ninny parts of at- the *t,ate, have become intolerable with •clean, fair-minded people." That settles tho question of the object of adoption of the primary -.system, and the best evidence that -it accomplished its purpose is that corrupt political bossism on any large sca.le has been unknown in Iowa from that day to this. The statement that the primary -system has failed to produce better -jjublic servants is therefore beside -the point, even if it were to be admitted, which it \K not. They are better in one way, if no other, in that they are not the tools of corrupt political bosses. The further Statement that the primary has produced worse public servants can- mot be proved. On tho mistaken assumption that the object of the primary system •was to produce better public servants, opponents of the primary system attribute to it the dearth of Allisons, Dollivera, Hendersons, Hep- fcurns, Laceys, Kirkwoods, and Larrabees In the last 23 years. They forget, first, that these characters liave been deified by death and time, and, second, that it is the times or -the accidents of nature, circumstance, and environment which pro-duce noted men. Dolllvers do not STOW at every crossroads or in every era. Primary or no primary, the character of Iowa officialdom in last 25 years as regards competency would have been much the same. When the Gazette attacks the primary on this account again, let it name lowans of the last 25 •years who but for the primary system stood a chance to develop into 3>ollivers. Advocates of the primary system do not claim that it produces great the do claim, and they challenge proof to the contrary, that it lays no obstacles in the path of genius that are not inherent in any system, that it throttles corrupt bosaism effectively, and that it gives every voter, instead of a few politicians with axes to grind, a say on candidates •who aspire to govern him. ers to halt foreclosures served a purpose, in that it called nationwide attention to the farm debt situation and compelled ameliorative attention which might' otherwise have been disastrously delayed. If now the farmers decline to listen further to radicals, if they accept the law in good part, and if they refrain from new demonstrations, there is ground for hope that the Injury which has been Inflicted on farm lands as security for loans may heal and such security in due time return to good repute. It has not been sympathy for mortgage creditors but fear for unfavorable and perhaps permanent reaction in the farm loan market that has from the first moved thoughtful spectators to deprecate the so-called mob action among farmers against foreclosures. Iowa's farm % loan debt alone Is a billion dollars, and it is obvious that for at least a generation to come we shall be dependent largely on outside capital for agricultural development. To alienate this capital permanently, or even n large measure, would be fatal. One other danger we shall escape f we return to normal conduct and Th» Colyum let's Not be too D—d Serloni Oeorpp, Our Phono Number is 602 nnd We Love Dumplings. [Geo. \V.

The tenseness with which we met the cold all day is gone, and we relax and rest. Dick challenges Dad to a game of anagrams, and maybe beats him. We talk over the day's events of school and farm. This includes an account of things at grandma's where Dick eats his school dinner. Wo are warm, restful, and content.

They that market had been destroyed there would inevitably have been a united demand throughout the mid- west for government financing, and f congress, under pressure, had yielded, we might have found the nirden too great to -bear and faced government as well as universal private bankruptcy. Timely Topics If Glass and Wallace go into the Roosevelt cabinet together, it will not be surprising if trouble between them arises. They are poles apart on money and banking; probably also in economic views otherwise. Something like the fight a dozen years ago between the elder Wallace and Hoover may be the outcome. In 1915 all government in this country cost $3,379,600,000, or $33.84 per capita. -Now the total is $!!,•> 452,200,000, and the- per capita is ?94.37. For a family of five the amount Is—believe it ,or not! — $471.85 per annum. This, however, is just average; big taxpayers pay much; if not most, of it. And whereas in 1910 there were 1.500,000 persons on the public pay roll, now there are 3,500,000. •* The demand for a cut in public salaries is well enough, considering the times, but-there 1 -should be some WHY XOT MOKE PAPER 3IOKEY INSTEAD OF BONDS?

DIRECTIONS come reports that other columnists, In a most flattering way, are adapting, imitating, .parodying, and mimicking this sade muddle of mistaken ideas called Over the Coffee ... I have no objections. All columnists are welcome to anything they can At The Call Theatre A iteview of the Recent Talkies by *T. M. C. EVERYBODY, with ponderous Kate Smith in the the H title role, Is a fair example of what may be called "moronic fodder." While the young lady has a soft, pleasing voice and an amiable personality, her stage presence Is so unattractvie, her present vehicle so weak, and her "audience appeal" so negligible as to make this talkie a pretty sad piece of dramatic art. The radio, ojie of our greatest modern inventions, has not only given us the golden voices of some of • our most famous living artists, but has also brought questionable popular- .ty to many others scarcely entitled to fame. We place -such names as 'Bing" Crosby, Rudy Vallee, Kate Smith, and the Boswell Sisters In this category, If you are a staunch admirer of Kate, you will resent these deroga- ory references, as well as this crlt- cism of her first screen play. Then figure it out in another way: in our .present economic crisis, is It air that anyone of questionable alents should receive the vast imount of remuneration this youngster gets each week? Isn't there something wrong somewhere? The 'adlo and the moving picture have it-ought about this condition hrough maes Idolatrous worship of ndlvlduals. Hello -Everybody was taken as the lame for this photoplay because light after .night Kate Smith ad- reeses an uneeen radio audience In x X,a 'Palina hour. It fits the play s well as any other. Katherlne Is ilctured as a self-sacrificing sister nd friendly neighbor w-ho thwarts he power trust's efforts to gain osseeslon of valuable farm lands if such t'here still be), and she gets he only reward that we have al- vays ascribed to virtue—Its own. Associated with Miss Smith is an dequate cast headed by Bally Blane, Randolph Scott, and many thers. As a piece of harmless Sun- ay night entertainment, Hello Ev- rybody Is entirely blameless; but his, in our humble estimation, Is ne best thing you can say for It. T ADIES THEY TAXiK ABOUT gives the Increasingly beautiful Barbara Stanwyck her best .part ince The Night Nurse; but, sadly nough, It is not nearly the produc- ion artistically that The Bitter Tea f. General Yen was, in which, how- ver, she was badly miscast. Which worse ,to be ideally cast in a tupid show, or to -be miscast in a first-class production? These are ponderous questions much too su- pendous for our lowly brain. Ladies They Talk About starts out gaily enough, with the beautiful (Barbara in the role of an accomplice bank robber. She is the only one apprehended, and she lands behind prison bare, because she confides In a young political crusader, whom she then hates but afterwards marries. This thing of suddenly changing leopard's spots in character is 'one of the most surprising things about our talkies. The young INVARIABLY after an evening man gallantly agrees to let the find here All I care about is getting the idea first.—H. S. M. in D. M. Register.

Mr. Galliirno confesses himself stead of the little moneys and credits levy the offset should be equal to the interest.

The one criticism Is that these Important soliloquies are often hurried, muffled, and difficult to understand. The plot Is too Involved, tho story Is too well known through frequent reviewing before women's clubs, dramatic societies, etc., to repeat Jn this column, but we may pause to consider the cast of characters. Norma Shearer contributes her crowning cinema performance as Nina Leeds, and she is ably supported by Alexander Klrkland as Sam Evans, husband, and (Ralph Morgan as "dear v old Charles" 'Mara* den. Clark Gable Is badly miscast, and his deflcencles grow more apparent as the play progresses. Just why he should have been chosen for the exacting, extremely delicate role of "father" Is an unsolved mystery. He solicits no sympathy from his audience, and his dramatic ability Is bounded by the limits of gangster and racketeer activities. Strange Interlude ifl gorgeously mounted and expertly photogapheU. Director Robert Z. Leonard apparently, condemns a nine-act play to a successful hour-and-a-half screen production without seriously .Impairing Its dramatic 'values. It is not an entertaining plot, however, and will not .be popular as a cinema, though it Is a courageous effort 1o give .the screen some of the so- called "better" things of the legitimate stage. S ATURDAY WAS A (BIG day at the Call, a sort of a three-ring circus. 'Frank Buck's celebrated picture, IBrlng 'Em 'Back Alive, made a belated appearance at the local theatre. In our humble estimation t Is the ace of the African pictures. The fight between the tiger and the python (piece de resistance) one of the most exciting bits of "acting" ever screened. There are numerous other interestng episodes with ring of authenticity which so many African pictures lack. Frank almost spoiled the show for us, however, when he said, early In the picture, 'It SURE seemed good," or words to that effect. If there Is one expression . in the English language :hat gripes us excessively it Is the improper use of "sure." We can forgive an occasional "ain't," or even the atrocious "Ain't got no," but "sure" simply won't go down— sideways or any other way. The Hurricane Express has got itself onto so many side-tracks that :ven a traffic. cop would be bewildered. T'here are half a dozen "threads" of plot, all knotted and jnarled into a heterogenous ball of lurid meller-drammer. The thing has simply gone "hay-wire." The third attraction In the Saturday show was the return personal engagement of one Joe Marcan in what he calls a. "Surprise Party." With the debonair Joe are ten or a dozen shapely (and otherwise) chorines who frolic'about the stage, evidently well aware that they are in the "sticks" and that the Call Is a family theater given to the highest form of Art. They wiggle clandestinely and chastely, and seem a bit bored with the proceedings. The singing Is positively awful, but who goes to g-irl shows to listen to singing? The costumes are clean and new, and the little "show" is well- staged. For 35c (or a quarter upstairs) this was certainly a bargain feat. throughout the game. The /score at the half was tied, 16*16." • In the eecond halt both teams played fast ball. Haneen, local guard, Was niovad to forward and scored nearly all points -In the last half. The lineup for Algona was Olsch and Llchter, forwards; Strelt and Zender, center; and Dooley and Hansen, guards; Hughee and Lamuth, substitutes. The St, Cecelia boys began with one of the fastest scoring attacks of the year. 'Tipoff plays netted .baskets, in short order. The score In the first 50 seconds was 6-0, Hansen, Capeslus, and Kelly each sink- Ing a basket. The score at the quarter was 12-0; at the half It was 2-1-5. During the second half b'oth teams foUled frequently. The score at the end of the third quarter was 28-11. In the final quarter the locals were weakened'by substitutions, but they continued their scoring attack till the whistle. The final score : waa 37-17 In Algona's favor. AGAIN!

Pittman, Northwood Anchor editor, was wondering how long it would take for the written language of today change enough to be unintelligible to Americans now living. The Col- yum suggested that he try a sentence from Beowulf, early Saxon author, and base an estimate on that. Apparently E. K. couldn't find his copy of Beowolf, so he came back with this— "But even a translation of Chaucer, from hie Canterbury Tales, lends itself to a good deal of mumbling on the part of the reader. As for instance: 'His wyf and eek his doghter hath he left inwith his house, of which the doars weren fast y-shette.'
