JIOARDKIIS, 1JA3VKS, AND THE ONLY SAFE INFLATION A fact which needs to be reiterated and emphasized till everybody 'knows it, is that it is now perfectly safe to deposit money in any open bank. This is as true of banks open un- tfer restrictions as of banks released from restrictions. For new de- iposits banks operating under restrictions serve as depositories only; the deposits are held subject to call. At the same time deposits are safe in unrestricted banks because igovernment investigation has shown fthat they are 100 per cent sound. At the case stood prior to the banking holiday the soundest bank an the United States could have 3jeen bankrupted in a run. This is because a bank lends a large part •of the funds entrusted to it. Granted that every loan made by the *ank was sound, still it could not'yet. oiot have withstood a run to the to three centuries ago. Then came the twilight of the kings as democracy in one form or another slezed the reins of government. One hundred and forty-two years ago the first real reoublic was born. Is the democratic idea in government now on the way out? It begins to look like it. There have been astonishing changes in the last decade and a 'half. These changes began with the World war. Russia led the way in one direction; Italy in another. The Soviet idea has not spread, but the Mussolini idea carries a threat to every democratic government in the world, including, at last and alas, our own. No one can read of the new deal in Germany without fear for the democratic form of government everywhere.

And we of America can no long er view the situation with equani nity as mere spectators. Within hree weeks we have conferred on our president dictatorial powers vhlch, were it possible, woulc make our forefathers turn over In heir graves. Not only that, but iere in our own state we are so- icited to follow suit by making our overnor in some ways a dictator Under the circumstances It can- ot be said that what has been done i this country in this memorable month of March was not neces- ary; on the contrary it was appar- ntly the only thing to do. Nor re the immediate results to be eared. The evil precedent may ometime arise to deprive us of ur liberties, but the time is not last dollar of its deposits, because 4t could not have immediately turned every loan into cash. Today any sound bank can defy the wildest run. It can pay every •dollar of deposits on demand. This is because under the new deal in «noney and hanking it can obtain Federal Reserve bank notes by merely pledging its paper. Under jprior provisions this could only be •done in the case o£ certain kinds of paper. Thus there is no longer excuse for currency hoarders. They run no risk whatever by depositing in ianks, whereas if they keep hidden money they run every risk of rob- ibery or accidental destruction. The frequent reports in the newspapers of torture and robbery, or of accidental destruction of hoarded money, ought to be enough to de- What every loyal American must mourn is the virtual confession of failure of our system of government which this action implies. We have, as regards certain things, set aside representative government and erected a dictator. The first steps have been taken towards the possible creation later of a Mussolini or a Hitler. Whatever the necessity, it is humiliating to think that such a thing had to happen in America. f ami lee. teased sisters •swarmed hoard, The whole >D When brothers four, And sisters disagreed On who should bake the pancakes— The task was long indeed. * * * * You would know the recipe For mother's oldtime cakes?

There is something contagious about Funnyman Fields. your hide, unexpected the humor of It gets under It catches you at an moment and simply convulses you before you are aware of It. The Dentist Is slow In starting, but by the time he begins looking for the bewhiskered Russian's mouth hidden behind a huge brush of spinach you are ready for almost anything. And when the birds begin to come out and Fields reaches for his shot-gun, you are ready to admit that here Is one gentleman who can find your fun- nybone. The feature picture, What, No Timely Topics ter anyone from the practice of hoarding. dangerous •So much on the side of depositors; now on the side of the banks. During the last few years of failing banks the state of the public anind has been such that no bank Sias felt safe in lending up to its capacity. For this situation bankers have been subjected to unjust -criticism. It was not of their creation, nor did they desire it. Their profits arise from loans, and naturally they always want to make every safe loan that is available up to their capacity. Bankers have had their fears Just as depositors have had, and in many, if not most, cases with .more reason. They have been deterred from a liberal lending policy by the specter of runs. In order to maintain an unreasonable degree of liquidity, they have had to sacrifice not only profits but in tnany cases the service which oth- have erwlso their patrons would 3u*d. a right to expect. The Specter has been laid. Banks •can now make safe loans up to capacity secure in the knowledge *hat if need be they can convert their paper into instant cash. They are no longer at the mercy of -frightened, unreasoning depositors. Banks and business have also *een crippled by hoarding. Money deposited in socks or under the mattress does no work, •at is a basis for loans. In a bank With hoarded money returning to the banks, and "with banks freed of the fear of runs, we are now in a position for the only safe kind of inflation, towit the expansion of loans, namely bank credit, due to increased business. It has not been more currency we needed, but more bank credit. Currency in circulation in 1932 exceeded the height of the 192!) boom by more .than a billion dollars but bank credit in three years declined nearly one-fourth, or from $58,000,000 000 to $43,000,000.000 It is astonishing to learn that there is imminent danger of another war in Europe. One would think that the World war was enough for one generation; but Europeans seem incapable of learning the lessons of war. One thing: they can fight it out by themselves this time; America will mind her own business. To be in style the city council ought now to confer all its powers on the mayor and quit functioning; and the board of supervisors might follow suit by making its chairman a dictator. The school board, too, could let its president run things. To such a pass have we come in democratic government in America! The Mason City Globe-Gazette springs another anti-Patterson editorial. Let it go: There was nothing new in it; just the same old piffle about a one idea'd reformer. When the boys with taxable incomes can't meet the argument they have to rely on underhanded attempts to create prejudiae. The democrats are at present riding high, wide, and handsome. And it is well: they are entitled to their turn. .But their day of reckoning will come, as it comes to all parties. Meanwhile let it be acknowledged freely that they have made a good start. Something the anti-repeal forces in Iowa need to look out for is that they do not pick candidates for the constitutional convention » known only for anti-liquor sentiments. If they do, they will be beaten. This is a question of practical politics, and it must be handled as such. The best Kossuth timber in sight now is Senator Patterson. Typical Comment We Stand at Armageddon. Traer Star-Clipper — There is What is now set to happen sooner or later is this: No longer in tfear of runs, fortified also in some degree ' money, by the return of hoarded bankers will find themselves in a position to lend more than they have heretofore felt free to release. The desire for profit •win lead them to seek safe loans. The highest returns can be realized from their own patrons who will pay a higher rate of interest than can be derived from bonds. The loans the banks make will increase deposits, which in turn Tvill provide the basis for further 3oans. The money released in loans •will be put to use and revive business: the merchant will add to his •stock; building will be resumed- aiew cars will be ordered; in ten thousand ways business will be re- irived. This means reemnloyment •of labor, more wages in turn will create more demand for goods, (greater demand will raise prices. This is the only safe kind of inflation. The inflation Ithat depends only on the increase of currency in circulation is a snare and <a delusion, because it does not rest on legitimate demand; it will •work only when the currency depreciates, and then the inflation in prices will be matched by the depreciation. ARE WE FACING" something akin to the war spirit arising in the nation. People are beginning to buckle on their swords, figuratively speaking, and j getting ready to go out and battle against the depression. All they need now is to be told what to do. There is grim determination on every hand just as there was in the fateful days of 1917 and 1918. Hoarding Gold—How's It Done? Iowa Falls Citizen—The writer is in the same predicament over hoarding gold that some of the newspaper brethren are now expressing. We have not seen a piece of gold, so far as we can remember, in five years. Just how do you go about this gold-hoarding? It Isn't More .Money We Heed. Bloomfield Republican — confidence rather than more *It being understood that ister is a 'favorite sister. I LIKE TO THINK of the time 'red Langford took Avery Kifch- er and I along on a trip to South Dakota for a week's stay while ome building was being done on he Langford farm near Madison.'— Archie Evans, who writes a Column in Jarney's Peterson Patriot.. Which reminds us of the little scheme by which we determine whether to use "I" or "we" in such construction. We just mentally ditch the preceding words after the verb and then say it over without them and tell by ear. Archie ought to try it.—Colyum of March 2. Alas, how the subtle quips of colyumists pass right over the heads of readers, even readers at whom they are specifically aimed! Jarney sent that one out to Archie, who inhabits California, and Archie comes back with a half column defense of "I" instead of the editorial "we" in personal writing for publication. Which wasn't the point at all, and Archie is going to feel quite foolish indeed as soon as he takes pencil in hand, scratches out the words "Avery Kirchner and," and then reads what Is left. SOME FELLOW DOWNSTATE is possessed of a mean grouch against married women who work outside the home for wages, and, assailing them, he writes anonymous pieces to the papers. Over the signature "Amen" he has favored the Colyum with the following .gem: "This depression will-last 'till "we put "nien: 'back to work. Take women out of business, and with Hoover out of politics, we men will take care of the women the way we ought to do. That's the only way out." Well, Mr. Amen has our consent. Now let's see him put them out. THE EMPTIEST PLACE in all the world is the home when the wife's away When we were very young we once toyed with the idea of becoming a preacher . . .

But if he fails--ah, there's the rub! He will e crucified as he has so diligently ried to crucify Herbert Hoover for the past four years. Insurance Policy Loans Cut Off. Albia Union-Republican—Insurance companies operating in Iowa are now restricted by law from cashing policies or loaning money on policies. The law seemed a. necessity, like the bank moratorium and banking restrictions. The demand for cash would have compelled insurance companies to flood the market with bonds, which would have depressed the market and prolonged hardships. On the other hand this law restricts credit at a time when we need expansion. only farm implement we ever operated was a hayrake . . . Which reminds us of riding to Eagle Grove from Goldfield 45 years ago. For diversion we counted hundreds of haystacks where hardly one is '80's hazel along the Boone. Why did civilization drive nuts now ... In the still grew wild them out? Our oration when we were graduated was on Washington and our Lincoln—or was around? . . . No, chum's waa on it the other way we did not wait up to see "She Done Him Wrong." But Lord, what a dream! ALONG THE WEST side of Central park, a veteran squirrel comes dancing out on a bough every sundown. Yearly his tail grows whiter. 'Because of his propensity each fall to gather more nuts than he ever needs, I have named him Andy Mellon. He never seems to know that he has enough provender to last him several lifetimes of roaring luxury. A similar greed in humanity brought the world where it is.—O. O. Mclntyre's New York Day by Day. A kindlier story, and more to the point, than the recent poppycock for the credulous to the effect that ex-President Hoover and Andy were to be arrested for attempting to ship gold out of the country. That stinking yarn beat any that the wildest colyumlst could tell. PA OLSON, of the Herald, whom we Story chided 'broadcasted," says it's a recognized word and is to be found in the dictionary of new words in Webster's International. True, but only in an apologetic way, so to speak. It comes after "broadcast," as a variant, and Webster's explains that it's put in because it's in common use. Too common, say we, and we'll stick there. WE RODE THE automobile into the depression; let's ride out the same -way.—Slogan of Spencer Beer?, with the big-nosed Jimmy Durante and the frozen-faced Busier Keaton, was particularly apropos at this time, when both congress and the legislature are wrestling with the problem. While the plot is a wholesale travesty on each the situation, there are moments at the end when even an ardent wet must admit that the thing gets to be rank propaganda; as, for example, when the music plays Happy Days Are Here Again while the scenes show prosperity returning to the great American countryside in the form of grinding machine wheels, speeding trains, and busy farm reapers. The plot revolves about the return of beer. Jimmy and Buster start making near-beer, but they accidentally engage the services of an ex-St. Louis brewer who turns out the real article. This precipitates them into a gang war, and when the police raid the place, the "evidence" is all consumed by a thirsty populace which mobs the brewery as Buster goes 'through the streets with a placard on his auto which read "Free Beer; Follow Me." Jimmy Durante is there with all his old gags. He uses his entire vocabulary, such tongue-twisters as Incredulous, amazing, gratifying, stupendous, not to mention his favorite exclamation "Was I mortified?" . Mr. Keaton, as usual, falls In love, this time with a tall, sensuous brunette, Phyllis Barry, who disrobes for the abashed gentleman and displays considerable native charm. But It's all In fun, and as we have said before, what this country needs as much as a good five-cent cigar is hearty laughs. And if you didn't get them out of this trio o£ comedies, you're in a really bad way. 1ITE HAVE (BECOME so accus- •• tomed to seeing perfect-profile John 'Barrymore in roles of tl*3 Beau '.Brummel that it comes with distinct surprise to see him in a typical Lionel characterization. As Professor Auguste To- paze John achieves a neat bit of extremely clever character acting. We see him first as the plodding, befuddled old professor of a boys' school, trying to inculcate into the brains of his pupils the principle of honesty and the other homely virtues. But -when he punishes a baron's stupid son, he loses his position at the school; yet the bar- |0n, seeing in the man's utter credulity an opportunity to use him for sinister ends, drags him into a fake mineral water enterprise. Here Professor Topaze is initiated Into the modern business swindle. Innocent at first, he soon discovers his mistake, but just as he is on the point of giving himself up to justice he is waited upon by representatives of the government who come to decorate 'him with a badge of honor. A change now takes place in the character of the doddering Topaze. From an uncouth schoolmaster he is transformed into a debonair boulevard- ier, and he even goes so far as to steal the baron's lovely mistress, ably played by Myrna Loy. 'Barrymore's most effective scene comes when 'he returns to -his old school to award medals of honor and finds the baron's favored son slated for decoration. He quizzes the youth publicly, and when the boy proves himself a dunce Topaze gives credit where credit is due, to the discomfiture of the faculty This play is keen satire, handled with 'infinite skill by the clever Barrymore, who gives his comedy a touch of cynicism rare and refreshing. His metamor.p-b.is from the slow-thinking, ineffectual professor to the alert, keen business man is as amusing as it is improbable. . Thus once again we are impressed with intelligence as one of the potent factors in life. On stage the screen, or in the ordinary walks of life, exercise of Jhe god- given gift of brains remains the supreme achievement of man. John Barrymore puts into his every performance a toucn of the intelligence which is reassuring in these days of sloppy accomplishment. THE TREMENDOUS popularity of such pictures as King of the Jungle almost makes one lose The praise on his mental capacity. It was a picture show made to order for him, and plot and development of story were well within his power to comprehend. Buster (Clarence) Crabbe, winner of a 400-metre free style swimming event in the last Olympics, Is shown first as a small youngster In a dense African jungle where his parents have been 'killed, and he grows up In a den of cub-lions. Later we see him In nude splendor disporting himself In the Jungles with only a loin cloth to protect him from the ravages of prickly cacti which infest his region of the world. (Our botanical knowledge is somewhat hazy-^-do they grow cacti in Africa?) When Buster is captured with a flock of lions and is sent to America for appearance In a circus, the pictures reaches heights of adventurous asininity. After escaping from his cage, he is run down in an exciting chase. At this point we left the theater, but that will not prevent us from finishing this review. Of course he falls In love with a lovely girl (Frances Dee), who persuades him to leave the circus and teaches him such elegant 'and dignified English aa '-'scram." Then when a fire breaks out in the circus, our hero, in a natty, 'light grey, double-breasted Hart-Schaffner-Marx -spring of L933 model, das'hes back, and saves the .elephants from pulling the caps off of all the Hollywood fire plugs. It Is terribly exciting at this point. - Our 6-year-old was thoroughly convinced that this was the greatest production ever screened. We hope we never learn how many letters Buster has received from enamored feminine admirers as the result of this display of his physical perfection—we could not survive the shock.

R 12 LONG WEEKS we have followed, with constantly lagging interest, the complications, improbabilities, and asininities attendant to discovering the Wrecker in that super-thriller, The Hurricane Express. Running true to form, the guilty person turns out to be the individual least expected. In all mystery plays this formula is followed. It is always the garbage man, the messenger boy, or the innocent- looking old man who commits the most atrocious murder, while the confused audience seeks to pin, jlame on so-called "suspects" whom the playwright cleverly introduces for this very purpose. In the Hurricane Express the assistant to the general manager, played by the sad-eyed Conway Tearle, is the Wrecker. This concludes another serial of extremely doubtful merit. As a business proposition it may have points, but as entertainment it registers exactly zero, in our estimation, •* Ardls Krescnsky Is 65 Party— Ardis Kresensky was five las Thursday, and the event was celebrated with a parly.

Humboldt Roary club Tuesday evening on 'World War Veterans Relief." Mr. Linnan handled the subject vithout gloves. He condemned some compensations allowed veterans, but felt that others were not liberal enough. He felt that .he processes of adjustment have admitted of considerable graft, and he showed that of the immense amounts appropriated for veterans' compensation and relief have n large part never reached the veterans, but have been swallowed ip by the expensive process of administration. Mr. Linnan -mentioned hospitals erected and equipped by the government -which averaged to cost :30,000 a bed, and he showed that privately erected and equipped hospitals equal in every way to government-owned hospitals average only $5,000 a bed. Mr. Linnan, also mentioned cases of flagrant abuse of government- aid to veterans and others, while deserving veterans were being neglected. The talk was neither for or against the World war veterans or the American Legion, though Mr. Linnan is a member of the latter organization.- He served in the aviation division of the American Expeditionary Forces.
