"WHY ECONOMIZE, YET SPEND TAST SUMS ON PUBLIC WORKS I No doubt many people wonder "why, -when government from fed- ••eral to local is straining every -nerve to reduce expenditures, it is ^proposed to spend vast sums on isuch grandiose projects as conservation of forests and development -of the Tennessee valley. The reason, briefly, is that all -other attempts to make money circulate and thus revive industry -Siave failed, and this is a final resort. Early in the depression President overcome a depression short of the slow, merciless workings of the laws of economics. The idea here is that the government will employ vast numbers of men on public works. This labor will be paid decent wages which will permit normal spending. Having money, the laborers will buy more and better food; that will help farmers. They will buy, for example, automobiles and thus set a whole army of other laborers to work—the men who make cars, steel workers at Pittsburgh and <3ary, the railroad and ship laborers who transport ore, the laborers in the iron mines of northern Minnesota, and so on. And these laborers, in turn, will buy goods. And thus the movement will spread. Demand for goods will be lifted all along the line, prices will rise, and the depression will end. 'Of course this is not a certain outcome. Government cannot hire all the ten to 15 million men now out of work; it can, in fact, employ comparatively few. But that few may be all that is necessary to start the hall rolling. If government can do that much, there is reason to hope that the ball will keep on rolling of itself till all other labor, the farm, and the factory are rolling with it. This scheme, too, may fail, but it is the only resource left, and we simply have to take the chance. The Colyum Let's Not be too D—d Seriom I REMEMBER WHEN mustaches and beards began to go out and pressed pants to come in, I used to press my pants by .laying them on the mattress under the sheet and sleeping on them spring of 1902, before the country had been drained, a large part of the North End was under water.

It 4s lack of purchasing power that •snakes depressions vicious spirals. "Wages are cut, that cuts purchasing power, goods do not sell, man- -ufacturers cut wages again, that again cuts purchasing power, and So on. President Hoover's plan succeeded only for a time. The next thing was to make bank credit easier, in fthe hope that it would be lent and •"put to work; in other words, that industrialists would borrow to keep Vp production and keep labor eni- iployed, and that labor, having •wages to spend, would in turn buy the goods thus produced. In pursuance of this scheme the ^Federal Reserve banks, a year ago, *ought a billion dollars' worth of ^government bonds, bills of ex- *hange, etc. This put money into •the banks, for when the Federal -Reserve banks buy securities they •3>ay out the money and it is deposited in banks. The idea was to fill the banks with money in order to make them anxious to find borrow- *rs to make use of it and pay interest on it. And, of course, if 'borrowers -were found, they would em- I 3>loy labor in order to make a prof- 'it on the money. -But this, too, failed. The trouble was that, by then, industrialists •were afraid to resume production, •because the demand for goods had dropped so low that they could not 3>e certain of selling their pro- Timely Topics men who organized the Burt telephone company.

At present he is devoting all his attention to his farms. It may, however, be taken for granted that, given the opportunity, he will again seek office. Good government needs men like the governor. One reason the Farmers Holiday association cannot win the support of a large majority of farmers is that it is oftener than not making an egregious ass of Minnesota resolution itself, last The week night, I discovered one of the Spurbeck-Lambert fires, and excitement made me so near speechless that I could scarcely control myself enough to notify central . . .

So the money paid out toy the federal Reserve banks was not put •to work, and that plan was abandoned. Other schemes, such as the •reconstruction finance corporation «nd the home loan bank plan were adopted, but none of them worked •on a scale big enough to turn the trick. It began to be seen Hoover administration before the ended that private means couid not be depended upon to do the business. There •was talk then of great projects for government spending in order to tforce money into circulation; but the campaign came on, and while It lasted there was no place for anything but politics. 'Besides, -congress would not work with ^President Hoover, and the country 4ad lost confidence in him. The Tesult of the election made him powerless during the remainder of lis term. Thus when President Roosevelt •came into power the problem was still unsolved. Moreover, he was faced with a banking crisis which demanded immediate action. This out of the way, one of his first acts ^was to push , through congress Measures to relieve the monetary Mtn .*, m Provision y The Illinois supreme court has held the recently adopted sales tax in that state unconstitutional. That may put a crimp into possible plans in Iowa to halt the income tax with some form of sales taxation. Our courts are, however, not bound 'by the decision, and if it turned on a statutory question it may not have even the force of a citation here, in the absence of a similar legal situation in Iowa. The Crawford county rioters who took the law into their own hands have been sentenced to a day each in jail, plus a $50 fine. That was letting them off easy, but it will 'be enough if from all the circumstances other hotheads who imagine they are above the law have learned a lesson they will follow in future. President Roosevelt, having taken Americans by storm, has tried his radio luck on the peoples of the rest of the world. It was a bold stroke, but needed. Europe particularly must listen and react favorably or go to pot, and that soon. The Iowa farm mortgage total is nearly a billion. The new farm loan act cuts interest one per cent. If all Iowa mortgages can be thus refinanced, the saving to the farmers of the state will be approximately ten millions a year. That's not to he sneezed at.

Emmetsburg Democrat —Monday the drys of Palo Alto county held their convention in this city. One of the enthusiastic delegates from a neighboring town visited local friends after attending the convention. Before leaving for home, he went to one of our business hous- Mr. Mosc.rip Breaks the Sabbath and Pays the Penalty. [Knoxville Express.] Think of a Scotchman who breaks the saUbath! F. A. Moscrip, the editorial writer on the Marshalltown Times-Republican, instead of attending Sunday school and the kirk on Sunday morning, went down to the T.-R. office, probably to write an anti-beer editorial, or maybe one telling what the Elderly Inhabitant said about the degeneracy of 3.2. At any rate, he stalled the elevator car and found himself imprisoned like Guinevere, of sainted memory. But Moscrip is not Guinevere, nor a saint, and he yelled and kicked the iron sides of the elevator cage, and probably swore like a trooper in Flanders. (Finally, the publisher, D. W.. Morris, came to his aid, happening to be in the building at the time. It was not surprising that Norris was there, but Moscrip, the dour carl, we're disappointed in him. We never supposed a Scotchman would willingly go to his own hanging on the saibbath! Yenh, Earl, But, Confidentially Now, Whose Wife? [Eye-Observing in M. C. G.-G.] _ I tried my hardest to escape it but is simply couldn't be done. A year or more ago I saw that hotel sign out of Iowa Falls which contained the line: "No Charge for Wife." When I found myself smiling at the implication I frankly charged it to my low tastes. But one by one my friends have been telling me, and writing about the sign and its unique offer. I've simply been forced to pass it along. AMONG OUR LIMITATIONS is inability to enjoy opera. For us far rather Henry Field's hymns than what seems to us intolerable screeching of highbrow artists. But Dennis King is another story. Though he sang little in The Devil's Brother at the Call last week, his lilting melody -was the one thing that, in our opinion, redeemed the show. We join, however, in the surprise which T. H. C. expresses that such an artist should be found in the company of Laurel & (Hardy. As regards these buffoons, T. H. C. is far from severe enough, it seems to us. Whether they appeal to others we know not, but in our judgment they are positively the most insupportable comedians of the day. Add Instances Frank Advertising. CT.RANQE, INDEED, that after ^ the deluge of super-special animal pictures to which we have been subjected in the past year, Zoo in Budapest should emerge as In the the most exciting, most interesting, and most beautifully photographed of the lot. Given a thoroughly exotic setting, with a distinctly foreign flavor, Cameraman iLee Oarmes has further enhanced this lovely cinema .with some of the most iydl- Ilstic (not idealistic) 'exposures which have ever found their way to the silver screen. Charming vis tas across fog-laden artificial lakes are perfect gems of photography and the many interesting shots o bird life in pools of beauty are like the catalog of an international ex hibition of photography . . The st6ry is as simple as It is touching. It concerns a native Hungarian, Gene Raymond, who loves the animals in the Zoo, and whose only vice is a penchant for stealing costly fur-pieces from society ladies, because he abhors the sight of the skins of animals gracing the necks of vain females. Gene falls hopelessly in love with a pretty orphan (Loretta Young) who comes to the Zoo weekly with 60 other inmates of an asylum in charge of a gruff old guardian. When the girl escapes and hides in the Zoo, Gene befriends her, and they are on the way to- an escape, when a youngster, also lost in the Zoo, runs into danger of losing his life among the ferocious tigers and lions. Gene turns up at just the right time, saves the child, and wins the girl. A trite story, but simply told, with a romantic glamor and an expert direction which lift it above the ordinary to a. place among the thoroughly entertaining pictures of the year. Zoo in Budapest is one of those pleasant surprises which come occasionally to callous and cynical cinema reviewers who revolt against the established order of things and find pleasure in unexpected quarters. A.delightful musical score contributes to the beauty of this modest little talkie. Add to the effective work of Miss Young and Mr. Raymond also a poignant characterization of O. P. Heggie -as the old animal caretaker. 'TPiHE MOVIES MAKE strange •*• bedfellows—witness the spectacle of silver-voiced Dennis King, matinee idol and light opera singer supreme of the stage, in company with Laurel and Hardy, buffoons of slapstick comedy. Tis a strange combination, indeed, but not an unhappy one. For Laurel and Hardy distinguish themselves creditably and contribute perhaps their most successful comic in this adaptation of the famous light opera Fra Di- avolo. The cinema version is called The Devil's Brother, a name given to a famous bandit of the 18th century who robbed the rich and gave his wealth to his less fortunate followers. The plot is of no consequence, as so often happens in light opera. This defect is noticeable in the present production because of the absence of song and the rather endless comedy sequences of our two comedians. A musical score accompanies most of the picture, but -Mr. King sings only twice, a trayal delicately but resolutelj done. (Some scenes in a German prison camp are inexcusable. We have passed the day when war atrocities are given much credence, when applied to any particular nationality These scenes of horror add nothing to the picture, and Clark Gable with a week's growth of whiskers is certainly nothing to look at. But this is strictly a Helen Hayes show from start to finish. She gives us the feeling of having her part completely in control at all times. When she passes out of the church, in the beginning of the picture, and Joins in the festivities of a carnival, we can almost feel her innermost thoughts and sense how religious emotions have awakened in her the kindred emotions of love, gaiety, and the spirit of youth. The fading of the music of the giant organ into the hurdy-gurdy racket' of the carnival is one of those poignant trivialities which mean so much in enjoyment of a picture. But for the most part the direction is faulty and what should have been a swiftly moving, intensely interesting talkie emerges as simply a first-class overly long study of religious^ emotions. SENIORS TAKEN ON WORLD'S FAIR TRIP BY JUNIOR CLASS The annual A. H. S. Junior-senor banquet took place in the gymnasium Saturday evening. The room was effectively decorated with the senior colors.

Sentiment for "Change" Subsiding 1 . Knoxville Journals-Many straws in the wind indicate that some of the rampant enthusiasm for a change so manifest last fall has subsided and that the coming repeal election may indicate the sober, second thought of the people on the single issue of national prohibition vs. state control. What Repeal Will Mean. Bloomfield Democrat — If the 18th amendment is repealed, and the question of control of manufacture and transportation of liquor is left to the states, we shall be in for an era of wet and dry politics such as those of us who are old enough to remember recall as present in every election in the old days before prohibition. , We Are-'Turnlng' That Corner. Estherville News—Notice must be taken of the encouraging signs of better business. It is time to throw aside pessimism and be optimistic. There is justification for it. .Believe it or not, this country the distinguished advertising service cross to a filling station and a general merchant in southern Iowa. The station lunchroom advertises: a ball in the center of the east half >f the gymnasium to the three sides if the room, also to a wire stretch- d across the center of the gymnasium. The paper fell over the wire to the floor in a way to make a partition to set off:'the half of he room used for banquet pur- oses. " The remainder of the gymnasium ?as left clear for dancing following he program. The high school "Edie's Celebrities" orchestra furnish- d dance music, and its platform, elow the west basketball basket, was also set off with streamers. The banquet was served by the resbyterian women, members of he school board and teachers in the high school were guests. The program was a takeoff on the World's fair at Chicago. A picture of the Travel & Transport building appeared on the printed program, and the menu was supposedly taken from a World's fair restaurant. The program was made up as if Junior Tours, Inc., was taking the seniors for a special 1933 excursion to the fair. 'Donald Parsons served as official guide or toastmaster, and Donald Hutchins and Lloyd Pratt were local guides in the Administration and Travel & Transport buildings respectively. Charles Cretzmeyer was guide for Soldiers' Field • Violet Norman for Old Fort Dearborn-, Florence Dehnert for the Aquarium building; Ada Fiene and Bob MAINE ASKED TO 01 E'ME AS 1GP.M, Whether true or not, It has been reported Mn Washington dispatches that ways would be found to get rid of republican postmasters be- for their terms expired. It was hinted that one way would 'be to ask for resignations for the good of the service. The republicans, of course, would follow the same practice in like case. Both parties observe the Jacksonian principle of "to 'the victors belong the spoils."' Mayne Asked to Quit. Such a request was received two weeks ago by Postmaster >L. H. Wayne, Emmetsburg.

I regret only that the real reason for asking for my resignation has not been given. I might refuse to resign, basing my reason on the soldiers'.preference law, but I realize that former soldiers seem to be held in a low degree of estimation, since their services are no longer needed.

For Fra Diayolo was a heart-breaker as well as a bandit, and his willing victim in this case was the luscious Thelma Todd, never more lovely and gracious than in this production. She shows her entrancing figure in several scenes, which detracts nothing from the picture. The episode in which the fair lady shows her lover (Fra Diavolo) that she has 50,000 francs hidden in her innumerable petticoats •.. is really quite breath-taking, and makes us realize the pitfalls of a bandit as well as some of his compensations. A well-balanced program of JNawth. -ALIEN short subjects contributed considerably to the enjoyment of the evening. TT WOULD BE DIFFICULT to imagine a play in which Helen Hayes could not distinguish herself. Even in Son-Daughter, in which she portrayed the part of" an oriental, she breathed into a rather lifeless characte r a certain charm and sympathy. In White Sister she instills into a rather difficult part a human compassion which makes this one of the popular current cinemas. (But the play, adapted from _ book by the same name, has numerous defects, principally of direction. The action is slow and halting, sequences are extremely draggy, and Clark Gable moves like an ice-wagon. It seems strange indeed, that with so many masculine "leads" to choose from, this swarthy, "he-man" type of lover should be selected to 'play opposite the demure, lithe, almost fragile Miss Haves. The White Sister is gorgeously mounted against an eccesiastical background, and scenes depicting the various ceremonials of the Holy Catholic church are marvels of realism and beauty. No scenes of religious significance have ever approached the regal splendor and majestic beauty, the naive simplicity and quiet unobtrusiveness, of the young girl's marriage to the church.
