PAGE FOUR K039UTH COUNTY APVANCB. ALQONA. IOWA TttlTRflD/ CROSS INCOME BILLS ABSURD, SAYS SENATOR liy Geo. IV. Patterson. In all of my ten years of legislative work, I have never seen such a fantastic, absurd, and iniquitous {proposal as is presented in gross Income tax bills introduced in the Senate and the House, Outstanding among backers oC these vicious bills arp J. W. Bet- ftendorf, Davenport, and Grover Hubbell, of the Hubbell dynasty, of ]Jes Moines. The Bettentlorf company and members ot the family reported in 1925 a net income of more than a million. In the same year the personal net profits of the Hubbell Jamlly totaled $178,000. Rich Want Wealth Exempted. The wealth of these families is tmormous. Revenues from rents •lave dwindled, they would like their wealth exempted from taxation. Hence, they are backing this general sales tax, euphoniously la- fceled gross income tax. Now that a ruinously low price level is operating to strip people of property and Ruins Still Smolder Monday , , ' [ ' ' * •'.-"'•' V..r.,-, ••-:* ,i, j \' u. v .-. ,••, . • " At The Call Theatre/ A Review of the Recent-Talkies by T.

Hence this «reat drive to load the tax burden -onto the consumers in a so-called turnover, general sales, or gross income tax. Aided by Smooth Speakers. Many smooth-tongued speakers in the employ of these barons of -great wealth have shamelessly misrepresented these proposals to farmers and home owners of Iowa. They have vividly pictured the vicious tax system now existing, and ^proposed as a substitute tax of one-half of one per cent on gross year they do not have a dime of net profit to show for it. Yet what would the tax be? It would be $5,000! • Think of it! A scheme eventually many to exempt 2,000 acres of a wealthy man's property from taxation, except just $1,000, and 'loading ?5,000 on tenants who make no net profit whatever! That is not all, either. These tenants would not only pay their own §5,000 tax—if it could be collected^but bear much of the tax .assessed against others in the first instance. Scheme Full of Absurdities. These gross income tax bills are loaded with such absurdities, with injustice, and with impossible provisions, from beginning to end. Making every citizen of Iowa, and income.

Honnstetter Statehouse, Des Moines, Mar. 17 —During the last week a considerable number of bills have come before the House, and most of them were disposed of in 'harmonious manner. House File 101 relating to chattel loans up to $300 perhaps provoked more argument than any other. This was known as the loan shark bill, and it called for reduction of the monthly Interest rate to 1% per cent. The rate was amended to 2 per cent and passed the House as amended. I understand that the present ., .rate is 3% per cent per. month. Also, the way the measure is | People so unfortunate that they worded, there is serious possibility I must resort to loans of this nature Numerous complaints reach our ears about 'the talking.

There are only occasional touches of the subtle humor for which Mr. Arliss is so justly famous. One incident, in the opening -sequences shows the king shaking hands with members of the largest family in •his kingdom. Another is his sur prise to find a palatial castle instead of a cottage. As usual, Mrs. Arliss plays the leading role, opposite her real husband, but she seems to sense the FIRE (Continued from page 1.) tion, filing, and auditing of ibinders sets it at $10,000,000,000! j tnat a retu ™ would have to -be [.become victims of legalized rdb- Such a sum is nothing more than| made £or ever y 'transaction.

They justify the business of their clients under the guisfi of service, which demonstrates clearly what men will do for dirty dollars. These -are not bank loans, you understand, 'but the kind advertised in the papers. Redemption Extension Favored. House File 350 is an emergency -an extravagant and wild-eyed guess. ]?roniises Are Ridiculous. There are some two and one- 'ihalf million people in Iowa. Assuming there are five persons in. •each family, there would then be 500,000 families. Thus if each fam- turns filed under either of the two gross income tax bills now pending would be so great as to require a huge barn to hold them, and an army of clerks would be needed to audit them. Another sample of foolishness in. the bill: If two people each own a if tal would now be $500,000,000. And one-half of one percent would be only $2,500,000! That is a long way from the $60,000,000 or more that these men iblindiy propose to collect. Here's another slant on it: at lOc >a bushel, the 500,000,000 bushels of corn raised in Iowa are worth $60,000,000. If other agricultural value of each home would be taxed as "gross income". Here's the Real Idea. The gross income taxers propose bill relating to extension of the ultimately to lift bodily the tax burden from all tangible wealth. Well, already intangible wealth escapes. The real idea, then, is to shift the entire load to the masses products equal the corn crop in on tne basis of how much the peo- value, we have $100,000,000 as the "' ' gross value of agricultural crops of Iowa. If industrial products of Iowa this year equal the agricultural products in value, then the grand total is $200,000,000. If you, for good measure, double that figure, •it would be $400,000,000. Then you -would need a rate of 10 per cent to get even $40,000,000. Farmers and the Sales Tax. But these gross income taxers say they propose to impose a tax every time a product is sold, and that it is sold many times from producer to the consumer. Let us •examine that a little and see where the farmer lands. 'Let us take a specific instance: •under this proposal, when a dairy farmer sells his cream to the creamery a tax would attach. The rate in the bill is not stated, but •as to be determined later by the county auditor and the board of pie eat, wear, and use. Professor Nyman, in exhaustive studies, has found that 90 per cent of the people of this country, live according to the following ten living standards: 1—'Public and semi-public charges _._ 12,000,000 2—The work-shy and incompetent 12,000,000 3—Poverty level 76,000,000 4—Bare subsistence level 12,000.000 5—Minimum for health and ef- period of time for redemption in real estate foreclosures now pending where deeds of conveyance ;have not yet 'been made by the sheriff. Briefly this bill provides that in. any action for a real estate mort- become a most easy femme to look at. The least said about the plot, however, the better. It concerns a bachelor millionaire who falls in love with a virtuous (of course!) dance hall hostess and marries her when she is about to become a mother. Then when the child dies, •Nancy, with a .grand display of heroics tout appalling lack of Judgment and intuition, decides that :her husband married her for the it much more plainly than 'her husband. .Other parts are only fairly well handled. And so, taken all in all, King's Vacation is a distinct disappointment to theater lovers who have come to expect better things of George Arliss. As compensation for our dashed hopes, however, we had an exceedingly clever "short" by that most excellent of comics, W. C. Fields, entitled, we believe, "One Glass of Beer." This contains enough 'sake of the child, not because of I ™ 01 : . lula f , , %, , S anv n ff Pf .finn fnr h B rc»if ™ «*„ lau shs of a particularly timely na- any affection for herself, so she departs to Mexico. In Mexico she meets an admirer of -her dance-hall days, none other than our old western friend, Buck Jones. Need we go farther? Of course her husband appears at the very moment that Buck Jones, attired in natty cutaway,' enters to claim his bride. All of which is the height of sarsaparilla, if you know what we mean. Big, handsome, John Boles plays the rather emotionless role of b'achelor millionaire who falls so completely in love with the painfully ignorant "ain't"-girl hostess. Just how she holds the interest of a man-about-town has not been satisfactorily explained. That's the plot anyway, and you can like it or lump it. Nancy shows a remarkable inferiority complex which renders her performance negligible. She is constantly amazed at her conquest of the millionaire's heart. The most outstanding performance is contributed by -one Jessie Ralph, old German god-mother who watches over the destiny of ler charge with cat-like devotion. 3he almost stops the show by giv- ng the best minor-role perform- Washington university in spare time. gage foreclosure or deed of trust' ;V° ce of the year PerhansTwe had in which a decree has been entered • -tter say It anothef way Tha? it hut >v,o i.

We shall go into this more in detail when the film is shown 1 at the Call.. r fragile a vehicle as King's Vacation, he fashions out of it a. suitable entertainment. On the other hand, it is deplorable that, since he possesses the genius to produce a Disraeli, we have to see him in, a play of so little value. It is something for the talkies to answer for. In this movie we see our distinguished actor first as a busy, 'harassed ruler, keeping engagements, unveiling statues, inspecting arm- ture to more than offset disappointment in the feature. So we say, "No loss without some small gain," and call it an evening. HAVE NOT yet read Warden Lawes' book of memoirs, 20,000 Years in Sing Sing, but dramatization of the story in the talkies •has. resulted in a stirring tale. Director Michael Curtiz chose a love story as his central theme, and he showed the rare good judgment to follow a dramatic episode to its ultimate and tragic conclusion. The fact that a warden at Sing Sing would let a prisoner at liberty for a day, with nothing 'but his promise of honor to return, seems a bit unlikely, but perhaps this may be classed under the head of dramatic license. At any rate, it gives "punch" to the picture. Spencer Tracy takes the leading role, and his opening scenes are a trifle overdone. His love for the girl, however, who is splendidly acted by Betty Davis, is a smiple, realistic story of sacrifice, a hundred times more convincing than most of the sentimental drivel ordinarily dished out in the movies. There is some'thing real, something touching, something really tine in the philosophy with which Tom Connors faces his doom, and :he director has shown excellent tudgment in sparing us the last larrowing scenes preceding execu- ;ion. The role of warden is well played by one Arthur Byron.' In fact, .he characterization is perfect. He is shown as stern strict, yet hu- ,._,_..„ „. m ulu , man, a disciplinarian, yet friendly i may be necessary to »»««> sala enough to give a cigar to a doomed execution, with costs and accru- man.
