FAYING DEBTS ON A PRICE INDEX SCHEME Throughout the depression there <has been much loose talk among •both laymen and economists that time debts ought to be made pay«&le according to a commodity price standard. Thus the Pocahon- las Record says: •"Gradually one fact is percolating into our mind, that he who bor- TOWS a dollar today, and the record of it is fixed in writing — a Tnote, a mortgage, a bond — must -have the right to repay that obligation tomorrow, next year, or ten money to lend for productive enterprises. And there Is Just as much behind the new currency as behind the bonds—that Is, the government's credit." It would shock bankers to hear government bonds called '^frozen assets." Bankers call them "liquid assets" and set them off in .bold type in published statements as equivalent to cash. This is correct from the standpoint of depositors, for government bonds can always be turned into cash over night. iFrom the standpoint of would-be borrowers the designation "frozen assets" is not inapt, at least where so much of a bank's deposits is Invested in governments that the ability to make sound loans is impaired. One of the questionable aspects of modern methods of governmen bonding finance is the extent to which banks are virtually com pelled to buy and hold bonds. Thi practice begets no trouble when the demand for loans to financ industry and loans is low, but it might be a sizable handicap In case the legitimate demand for loans ever rose to a point where governments stood in the way. •"Fortunately increased demand for loans means increased deposits, and the deposits finance the loans Given a revival in business th« country can thus go forward a long way, farther than has ever yet been experienced, before govern- The Colyum Let's Not be too D—d Serloni IN THEIR own papers •*-* newspaper "breaks" amuse editors as much as the laity.

Well, I had Itiem all emptied then, and I steadied the house with one hand and counted the bottles, which were 24. So I counted them again, and I had 74, and as the house came around I counted them once more to be sure; and finally I had all the houses and bottles counted, and then I proceeded to wash the bottles, but I couldn't get the brush in the bottles, so I turned them inside out and washed and wiped them all, and went upstairs and told my other half she had done everything just as I ordered.

By then a man and woman have had time to adjust themselves to each other's ways and friction has been reduced PICTURES LIKE the Working * Man are the quiet, restful opiates 'of the talkies, soothing, lulling powders which put you Into a mellow mood and make you forget the world and its troubles. In the capable hands of George Arllss, these little dramas of our dizzy workaday existence take on the colors of romance and make us glad we are alive. Moral tales, perhaps, with a cocked eye to the public taste, but -harmless, Inocuous potions designed to calm the fluttering nerves and dull the too sharpened sensibilities. The Working Man Is unquestionably George Arliss's best production since his first (and historic) Disraeli, though a comparison of the two would be impossible. As well compare the ocean with a bucket of water. But this latest talkie of the old master of the drama has Just enough of the modern touch to make it appeal to young and old, man or woman There Is a tolerance, a restraint, a quality of mellowness In Mr. Arliss's portrayals which speak a universal language. This is the story of a crusty old shoe manufacturer who by cunning and a complete knowledge of human nature brings his own nephew to time, and also straightens out not only the family but the shoe- of his late rival. This complicated, ,but it works out simply In th? capable hands of Actor Arlfss,. The supporting cast is unusually ood, and the parts of the youngsters are well taken, with high lonors going to Bette Davis, who .•irns In an exceptionally fine per- ormance. But like all of Arliss's pictures, it is a one-man show from tart to finish. This Is as it should be'.

Northwood Anchor—The Farm- -done for one who in 1913 lent $10,- j 000 for five years. When time for •payment came he would have been •entitled not to $10,000 but to more than $20,000, because the commodity price list had in the meantime increased by more than 100 per •«ent. The mere statement of such a result is enough There would have "teen civil war in this country had •anything like this scheme been in , operation then.

The consequences would be disastrous. Every enterprise that defended on loaned capital would be •doomed and new enterprise dependent on borrowed capital would be "halted. The world might return to the middle ages. The foregoing argues no lack of sympathy for distressed debtors *aught in a low-price period. It is merely the application of cold reasoning to economic facts. If it •were practical it would be highly desirable to pay debts always in <the same purchasing power that •existed when they were incurred; *ut the plain fact is that in the •present state of human nature the •<scheme is not workable. For, plainly, no debtor would agree to it on a declining index list and no creditor wouid accept it on a rising index. YIEW1NO GOVERNMENT BONDS AS FJtOZGN ASSETS A writer on economics quoted by the Emmets'burg Reporter says: "An inquiring friend writes to ask me how it will benefit the -country to have the Federal Reserve banks issue three billion dollars of new money to take up government bonds. The answer is that these bonds are now held by Banks, which are handicapped bj having so much of their deposits wed up in these 'frozen assets.' If the banks can turn them over for "ew cash, they can use the new the cabinet because cost of production is not guaranteed to the crop-raiser. As time rolls on it will be found that Secretary Wallace is one of the best and most understanding friends the farmers of the United States ever had. How About This Tux? Traer Star-Clipper — The wets claim the beer tax will yield $300,- OQO.OOO to the government. If it does it means a tax of $!5 per capita. What a howl we would hear if another special tax of $15 should be levied upon all of us! Giving loiva a Black Eye. 'Humboldt Independent — Iowa has been known as the land where loans were paid promptly and cheerfully, and eastern money sought investment here. But the farm riots are changing all that. Iowa's lawless element may give the state such a black eye that it will be handicapped for many years. Economic Law Exemplified. Ringsted Dispatch—Cuts in salaries for public officials, Including teachers, came two years too late to help taxpayers this year, and now that the cuts have been made they are catching the salaried class when prices are on the rebound and will make it hard going for them till another adjustment is made. Getting Drunk on 8.2 Beer. Albia News — Maybe some of those beer-thirsty individuals who are not buying '20c bottles have heard of the fellow who drank 24 bottles in 48 hours and was not intoxicated. If $4.80 worth of it won't produce a desire to lick the wife, break the dishes, and fight a neighbor, what good is it anyway? 8 to ">, You'll Vote Wrong.

[Mason City "Eye Observing."] I learn that the expression "ibury- ing the hatchet," comes from an ancient ceremony among the Indians. To signify that they had no warlike intentions, the Indians, as they passed the peacepipe around, went through the ritual of burying a tomahawk. It was a further indication of their pacific feelings. A tomahawk was a "hatchet" to a white man. and since the Indian ceremony was one often performed to conclude a long-standing war or grudge, the meaning of the phrase has not substantially changed.

It is a rather subtle and negligible quality, never "bold, never flashing, but always there; and the screen has caught the spirit of his techrilque even better than the stage in affording us a closer view of the physical characteristics which are his stock in trade. W the present production, Whis- tlSfig in the Dark, we have the uncomfortable feeling of being double-crossed by the entire cast, especially by Mr. Truex. He seems constantly ready to turn aside and say, "There, you poor fools — I've slipped that one over on you." In the end you still have that feeling, though so artfully glossed over that the humiliation is slight. The picture opens with murder and gutl fire, and we are at once aware of the fact that we are looking in on a gang of racketeers out to "get" a beer baron. Ernest Truex and his bride-to-be are stalled in their car near the gangsters' retreat, and when they attempt to phone for a taxi his hosts discover that Truex may be a valuable man to help them murder a man without the usual tell-tale signs of violent death. How our hero works out the solution of the problem, only to find that the proposed victim has false teeth, is the stirring finish to this comedy- drama of suspense and laughs. Whistling in the Dark appeals only to a limited few cinema patrons who appreciate the delicate art of Ernst Truex.. The play is a bit draggy in spots, and the action is extremely halting at all times, except at the end; but the cast is well chosen and Una Markel, as the somewhat forward bride-to-be, is excellent, as always. And now that satire has ,been employed, we may be certain that the reign of gangster pictures is ended, which is a consummation devoutly to be wished. ^THERE'S A SWELL FIRE in A Hello Sister but you have to sit through the entire picture to see it. Otherwise there is little to get excited about In this tiresome story of night life in the big wicked city. James Dunn, always refreshing, adds a touch of realism to the proceedings, and Boots Mai- lory is easy to look at; but Zazu Pitts continues her toboggan down the pathway of emotionless, sterile roles. Of course no one expected Hello Sister to be anything but a second-rate picture, so really nobody should be disappointed that it turned out to be exactly that. It takes us back to the days of the "dime novel," the paper-back as we used to call it. The poor, virtuous, lonesome girl living alone in a dismal tenement house; the happy, carefree laughing boy also lonesome, very noble; happiness, a short period of misunderstanding then a thrilling rescue, and "they lived happily ever afterwards." clan Informs the unfortunate of a highly Important biological fact, Is about as tactless and bald a sequence as we have ever seen In the talkies. Yet this Is the age of sophistication. The most redeeming feature about. Hello Sister is the fact that so few customers were disappointed; they just weren't In their accustomed pews. Tj*OR THE SECOND TIME within *. the week we have been pleasantly surprised in a talkie. After the dozens of aerial pictures which have flashed across the cinema skies during the last few years, super-spectacles almost without exception, it Is somewhat disturbing to record that Central Airport is entertaining. And this despite the obvious fact .that -Richard Barthelmess is the world's most overrated actor. His forced laughter In the opening reels of Central Airport is the most painful example of incompetent acting the sliver screen has ever given us. And Sally Eilers, gets away with a slow beginning, though she warms up to her part gallantly as the film progresses. The secret of Central Airport, then, seems to be the simplicity of its theme, its adherence to a single plot-motive. Barthelmess Is Injured In what, seems an unavoidable accident at the start of the picture, and it impairs his chances to pilot a "ship" In the regular passenger air service. He meets a feminine parachute jumper (Sally Eilers), and when this young -woman's brother is killed at stunt-flying, Richard again takes to the aJf. Meanwhile his younger brother (Tom Brown) becomes Interested in aviation, also in the girl Richard has refused to marry on the ground that the life of aviator's wife is too uncertain. The younger brother marries the girl, and proves that marriage can be suc- flyers.

The Roosevelt "short," though a trifle long, was well got together, also somewhat timely at this moment, when our "Man of the Hour is making world-history. This picture follows the faithfully. pattern There are no psychological byways, no emotional pitfails. The thing just runs true to form. When the old drunk comes in with his first stick of dynamite, you know that the grand finale will include a first-class explosion and that the hero will carry the unconscious heroine to a thrilling rescue. And that, of course, is exactly- what happens. Minna Gombell puts on an excellent wrestling exhibition with the "touch guy" in the second reel After rolling all over a room they proceed neatly down the hall and four or five long flights of stairs which gives the show "dramatic punch," as they say.

As in R. S. McWhorter's recent case, Mr. Sabin says that, being a farmer, he could use any kinu of funds, but that in fact he is not yet "on the county." Albert Ogren, in proceedings published in another paper has also been reported as the recipient of poor funds. In that case there was no mistake in the proceedings, but a linotypist inadvertently substituted his name for a similar one. • County Auditor Butler is doing his best to eliminate errors and says that if persons who o. k. bills will be sure to sign in the place provided therefor on the claim blanks there will be no repetitions. In some cases the claims are not signed in the right place, and that confuses the clerk who prepares the list for publication. , C. V. Hulso, Pastor — Next Sunday will be observed as Memorial Sunday.
