TIIK PRESIDENTIAL POLICY AND THE DEFLATION After six weeks since March 4, it is beginning to dawn on a country •which expected some sort of inflation from the new administration that what we have got so far is a tremendous further deflation. Since the woods 'are alive now •with supersensitive Rooseveltians inclined to misinterpretation of current comment which does not -lend a roseate color to everything that has happened under the new administration, it will be the better part of valor to explain at once that nothing in this editorial is intended as criticism of what has "been done. What happened had to lhappen, and would have happened regardless of a change of administration, and the new president has ^handled the situation in the best possible way. The fact remains, however, that in the closing of the banks, how-ever necessary and unavoidable, •we have, as regards banks not reopened or reopened only with froz- •en deposits, suffered an immense -deflation. This is because bank entitled to the 'benefit of tne doubt and there can foe no one unwilling to wish it the utmost of success. The real danger'is that congress, Impatient with the slow processes of safe .inflation, will upset the presidential applecart and rush the country blindly into some kind of unsafe inflation which will wind up in untold disaster.

At Clear Lake when 1932 opened there were two banks. One was the old Cerro Gordo State, the other the First National. The Cerro Gordo State had for a generation been A Rock of Gibraltar, but on January 20, 1932, it closed. The First National had opened the year in a strong cash position. There had been a drought in 1931 and the lack of crops coupled with the failure of the Gerro Gordo bank The Colyum Let's, Not be too D—d Serloni created a drastic credit demand, bloom pushing up from their back- The financial burden of the community fell on the First National. In this emergency the bank undertook to pursue a liberal policy and meet all legitimate demands ANOTHER POEM W PROSE BY GEO. W. GOIWREY. [Successful Farming Squibs.] There is a little nook among the hills near us where we go every spring in hepatica time. It is in a deep steep-sided ravine. An olci sugar maple that towers above everything else stands near the. top of the south bank. Below it that whole north slope, when the .time is Just right, is spread thick with thousands of clusters of hepaticas. They range from white to all the tints in their color range. When I am out there in the woods and look down on this wonderful flower bed of Nature, something seems to lift me higher toward God than I can ever get otherwise. I never can explain it but there is something about those beautiful clusters of ground of brown dead leaves ahead of all else that seems to reestablish me in the promises of God. Out of sorrow will come joy, out of tribulations will come rejoicing, •deposits are just as much money in circulation as currency, and the deposits held in closed banks or in 'banks reopened under restrictions community too well. The point we suggest is that not every bank which cannot meet the current liq- 'or credit. Between February l,|out of death will come life. PossI- •932, and January 1, 1933, it lent bly that is what the Master meant 5104,000 in new funds. It can probably be said without much exaggeration that its action kept the community on its feet. It performed a vital service. Then, unexpectedly, occurred the national banking crisis. The banking holiday was declared, and out of it came the requirement that banks reopened without restrictions must possess a high degree of liquidity. The First National had lent too much of its cash resources to be able to meet this condition. It had to be reopened under restrictions. We cannot know whether this bank's resources were intact; whether it had too many bad loans; or whether it was merely temporarily unable to qualify as regards liquidity because it had served its uidlty requirements is necessarily to be considered the victim of bad banking. In the end there may be some question whether liquidity is not at Of of liquidity is not a fixed thing; it varies with the circumstances,'which are at present abnormal. It would seem, however, that in (have in effect been retired from -circulation. A Washington dispatch to the Christian Science Monitor estimates that the deposits tied up in . . , . , . hanks which remain closed alone j P re sent being over-emphasized amount to $4,000,000,000. When it \ ™ U1 >! e ,^ e P r °?. e _ r , is considered that the gradual decline of hank deposits between the crash in 1929 and the winter of 1-933, a period of more than two-.. ., , , ., years, amounted to something like 1 tlm f. the emphasis at present laid W4.000.000.000, it will readily be! , on . hlsh , ll{ I uldlt y w °uld deprive understood that a further decline banks of , much of t!lelr past useful of four billions within a month is ness to the communities they serve, nothing short of tremendous. This, let it be repeated, is not saying a thing against the new ad- j ministration or what has been done. It is merely stating a fact. The Monitor says: "The statement that the Roosevelt administration policies thus ! at Public expense in Polk county. tfar have tended to he deflationary | J.' lat is^one inhabitant out of every does not come from critics of the" new president; it is admitted by the White House itself." "The paradox of the situation," the Monitor's dispatch says, "is that up to the present the actions of the Roosevelt administration have been definitely deflationary Tather than inflationary; that is, they have tended to contract the amount o-f currency and credit out- Timely Topics The Register reveals that seven thousand families, or approximately 35,000 persons, are receiving aid five. And doubtless at least one out of every four of the'. remaining population is Just getting by. And yet we have a distressing national surplus of goods! It must be admitted that the proposed national guarantee of bank deposits has its doubtful aspects, but if it will put an end to lioard- ing it may prove worth the cost. It is probably a fact that the effects •tanding rather than to expand of hoarding under the present sys- them, and have thereby tended to ! tern probably cost more than a deposits guaranty would. reduce commodity prices and add to the debt burden." u IOQ ^ Mw Another fact which no doubt will j state banking Is when he said, "Consider the lilies of the field." SPEAKING OF KINDNESS, consider this application submitted to the Clear Lake town council a week ago Friday night: "I kindly request a permit for the retail of beer and wine as soon as the law gives permission.—L.

THE DRYS CAN count on At The Call Theatre A Review.of the Recent Talkies by T, H. C. PROHIBITION, that noble experi- * ment, is taking " It "on the chin" these days in the movies as well as in the sacred Halls of Congress. In Tihe Woman Accused the major part of the action takes place on a "pleasure cruise," designed, we are led to believe, to relieve the aohing thirst of dry Americans. When the three-mile limit Is reached, deck-stewards knock at stateroom doors, announcing "bar's open." Which is the signal for a grand rush to the trough. Viewed in the light of 20t>h century intelligence (if there is such a thing), the procedure takes on the air of a hypocrisy which has made us the laughing stock of a world. And, speaking of intelligence, The Woman Accused insults what little has been allowed to run around loose. It is the story of a loose woman (insipidly portrayed >y "baby-eyes" Nancy Carroll) who suddenly "goes straight". Then when a former lover attempts to reveal her past to the man she now passionately—and purely, of courser-loves, she hits .him over he head with a statue of Diane or Venus, or some other Grecian divinity, and departs on said pleas- ire cruise with Cary Grant). her paramour the Colyum to the last ditch. The Col- yum always votes dry. But we deem it only fair to say that before the new beer is condemned its effects ought to be tested by experiment—a noble experiment, so to speak. Therefore if any minister in town will cooperate we will But the villain still pursues her, in the person of John Halliday, friend of the dead man, and .personification of justice. By all manner of clever ruses, he wrings a confession out of her. But John has not reckoned with the cunning of Mr. Lawyer Cary Grant. This indomitable attorney horsewhips <a murderous "rat" (played by Jack 'Le Rue) into telling tell-tale stories about the dead man which convince the district attorney (Mr. Pichel) that the case ought to be dropped. And the in- ocuous movie ends wfth the sobbing heroine in the arms . of the stalwart Grant, while the slinking alley rat and the pestiferous accuser ,fade into the background. It is all confusing to the innocent layman unaccustomed to the intricate workings of the law. But apparently the "honor" (?) of a woman is still held in high esteem by the courts, even if it comes up in a roundabout way and concerns the welfare of an honest, good- looking lover. After all, we must protect our self-sacrificing man- about-town. nowadays seems to be to x hold a conversation with the mouth full of beans. , Try It some day. Neil Hamilton and the fair Constance have at least three bean-conversation parties in this picture. What next? Tihis da the third movie In succession in which we have seen a court trial, and the thing Is beginning to get on our delicate nerves. Even a road show with a lot of bow-legged chorus gals will be a relief. Sorry, Connie, but if we never see your smiling, sophisticated smirk again It will be soon enough. If you don't think this old world is buzzing on its dizzy orbit, and that Algona is almost the center, see Pathe News, sent direct to our little city in a private "can" and displayed on the local screen Just FOUR days after the thing takes place in little old New York. Is this "service," Or Is it SERVICE? And Ruth Etting, In a most entertaining short, takes away some of the curse of Connie and her comic convulsions. W E ,, AWYER MAN gives us a gather interesting picture- of a cer- I tain type of specious attorney usually found in the larger cities in its numerous points of similarity to The Great Mouthpiece, which purported to be the 'biography of one William Pallon. In both cases :he docket was filled with private feminine cases, and in both there was a great deal of graft and corruption of a nature somewhat foreign to the life of the average small-town lawyer.

Up to date only about $15,000,000 of these notes have gone into circulation, a mere drop in the bucket; and it is hinted that circu- aation in any great quantity is not expected. They are available if •need be, but their principal value Is purely psychological. There is -already more money of the old «orts in circulation than the country needs in the present state of Business—some $2,000,000,000 more in fact than at the helghth of the 1929 boom.

And we ruminated long and ser- ously, pondering again the advant- iges and disadvantages of criticism ind of these doubtful lines. Who are we to say whether a show is ?ood, bad, or indifferent?

NEW BILL REDUCES JUDGMENT LIENS TO 2-YEAR LIMIT A bill by Senator Patterson * limit the Hfe of certain Judgmen liens has been passed by> 'both houses of the legislature and i now in the hands of Governor Her ring. If It is approved, it will take effect July 4 . In the opinion of Senator Patter »on this 'bill will do more to rescue debtors than any other act of th present general assembly. Under the law at present a Judg ment automatically attaches as a Hen against any real property own ed or acquired by the debtor -with in the county, and it may be trans scribed to any other county witl like effect. This lien lasts ten years. Then the Judgment lasts ten years more, and it may be renewet by court action for another 2( years. As long as the judgment is alive it may also be sued upon in other states. Senator Patterson's bill provides that after January 1, 1934, no real estate foreclosure or deed of trusl judgment, or any judgment on claim for rent, or judgment assigned by a bank receiver, or rendered on a claim assigned toy a receiver when the assignee is not a trustee for creditors of the bank, can be enforced, and no execution can be Issued thereon, after two years from entry of judgment. In short the bill limits the life of judgment liens in these classes of cases to two years. After that they are no igood to the holder except as offsets in case he Is sued by the debtor. The judgment holder must enforce ihis lien within two years or not at all. He cannot 'Simply sit back quietly for ten years and wait for his Hen to attach automatically to new real estate, nor after ten years can he order out an execution up to 20 years whenever he finds that the debtor has managed to acquire real estate. Nor can he sue on the judgment just before the 20 years is. up and have it extended another 20 years. The bill does away with holding a judgment over a debtor for a lifetime. If the cred- tor cannot enforce his judgment within two years he is out of luck. Sometimes, to escape enforce- nent within two years, a debtor vill be glad to agree with his creditor that the lien may run for a longer period, and the bill makes provision for that.

Or: "You have listened i slze of a bird-seed and bust," coun- •what the administration intends t -do about the situation. The coun try certainly expects some kind o inflation and will not be satisfiec without it. To begin with, it may be statec definitely that the administration is not for any of the inflation schemes commonly envisioned I is distinctly not for fiat money o a change in the gold content of tin dollar. President Roosevelt and his ad -visers understand the situation per fectly. They know that what has ween done thus far has been defla •tionary. Their problem is to counteract this with safe inflation, am; it is announced from the White House that reflationary plans are being worked out. Some of then are already known. The reforestation project is one such project. It will force $250.000,000 into circulation through employment of labor. Another is *he proposal to afford a half billion relief to the states, not a loan but a gift. A third is the $2,000,000,000 farm relief project. Others it is hinted, are to follow. It must be confessed that the results to be expected from such devices seem largely uncertain and speculative. The problem of safe (forced inflation had the Hoover administration baffled more than two years. Whether it can now be ^solved by such simple means as been proposed seems ques- able. But the administration is present, but the argument in favor of their issuance is just as poten as it ever was. The tax-free element enables the government state, cities and counties to issue them at a lower rate of interest and the taxpayer is saved in taxes the amount of the reduction. The Argument Per Contra. Knoxville Express—The real objection, the biggest one against tax-free bonds is that by reason of the low rate of interest secured by the tax-free clause the taxpayer has been inveigled into public expenditures he had better not made expenditures he probably would not have sanctioned if the carrying cost of the bonds had been higher. Why We Should Support Roosevelt. Whittemore^ Champion—To wish wish busi- success for Roosevelt is to success for Iowa, one's ness, one's self. In him is the hope of the American people for recovery and a great future. His administration has got off to a brilliant start. May there be no wavering during its existence.
