IHDUSTKIAL MOBILIZATION OR TRADE CONTROL ACT The new trade control or Indus trial mobilization act is of compar wtively little immediate Interest in Ithis section of the country, since it is aimed at industry, and we are •mainly agricultural. It will, however, affect Iowa industries doing «n Interstate business, such as, for ^example, the Maytag company. The original motivating object .seems to have been to penalize -manufacturers who practice unfair "Competition by sweating labor, par- •(tlcularly child labor. President "Sloosevelt and others have pointed Tout that under present conditions »s much as 90 per cent of the man- TOlacturers in many industries are prevented from pursuing decent •practices because the other ten per •cent will not do so. The act will put a stop to this and other sorts of unfair competition so far as products which cross 4state 'borders are concerned. The ;;new law provides for a code of fair •competition in each industry or atrade, and any concern which does •Mot live up to its code will be put -out of business. That will make it "possible to eliminate child and sweat labor altogether, and also to Coring about other needed industrial reforms. The codes are to be adopted by Ithe industrialists themselves, subject to the approval of .the president; but if they fail to do so, then -the president may draw codes and •compel everyone in the affected trades or industries to live up to them. It necessary the president may -require every industrialist and every person following a trade -which falls within the act to obtain a li•cense, and in case of violation of the code of fair competition he -may suspend or revoke the license. The act provides that employes -may organize to bargain collec- •4ively, but adds that no employe, or «Byone seeking employment, may Ibe coerced to join such organization. TJp to this point there can hardly 1be any who will not agree the act •4s a step forward. Unquestionably =child labor, sweat labor, and sweat -•pay ought to be abolished. It is in the further provision that the president may fix any maximum of 4iours of labor and any minimum of -vates of pay that the realm of controversy is entered. Particularly 4t Is going a long way to confer on anyone, even a president, the right "to say what employers shall pay •for labor, provided they pay a living wage. How important this provision is be seen readily if one will •contrast a great corporation able to conform to the rate of pay im•posed by the president with a small corporation, firm, or individual engaged ih the same line of production unable to do so. Great care -win have to /be exercised here if small industrialists are not to be -the goats of the act. The small industrialist already labors under handicaps against great competitors, and anything which will give the big corporations an additional advantage would be likely to put the little fellows out of business /altogether. The act is broad enough to authorize the president to establish the much discussed 30-hour week ment. If 3.2 beer is not intoxicating then it is not prohibited toy th 18th amendment, and anyone who votes for repeal under the impres sion that he is thereby necessarily voting to save beer will toe nils taken. What such a voter will in fact be voting for is the return of hard liq uors. Unquestionably hard liquor! are intoxicating and therefore for bidden by the 18th amendment This is a distinction that apparent ly few understand. It is, in fact, possible to be an ardent wet as regards beer, yet ai ardent dry as regards repeal of the 18th amendment. This is because the real question is not beer, which we already have, but hard liquors For a clear understanding by voters of the election issue the two columns of the ballot really oughl to be headed respectively "for hare liquors" uors." and "against hard liq- It should, of course, 'be admitted that in case beer, contrary to present claims, Is in fact intoxicating then the 18th •amendment, if it remains in force* will operate againsl it. Wets who want beer but are against hard liquors will have to decide by their votes whether or not to take that chance. Timely Topics Certainly we are traveling un- cnown roads out of Washington, and where we are going nobody knows. We can only hope that we shall arrive without a tremendous smash-up. One thing, we can't complain that our drivers do not have )Ienty of nerve. 'L. A. Andrew, state 'banking superintendent, told the group 'bank- rs'at Storm 'Lake that Iowa banks have lost more money On investment bonds than on farm t's too bad that he didn't paper, realize hat might happen when his exam- ners were practically forcing Iowa >anks to buy bonds rather than meet the needs of their own communities. ^According to Washington dis- atches, President iRoosevelt really wanted a sales tax to raise the in- erest on the $3,300,000,000 public mprovement bonds, but had to ive it'up. Too many had not for- otten how he embarrassed Garner nd other democratic leaders last December by denouncing sales tax- tion after they had been to see im and understood that he fa- ored it. Whether it is mere coincidence r not, little has been heard of ootlegging or booze ince beer returned. . racketeers Probably, owever, the racketeers are just izing up the situation before they ecide on the next move. It will ake the return of hard liquors to nock them cold. The question here is, which is worst? Mr. Morgan has paid no income ax in three years. Probably he honest enough, so far as the aw goes, but, as H. S. M., of Over he Coffee, in the Des Moines Reg- ster, remarks, he might well have aid a million or two just to save ppearances. Senator Brookhart manages to econnect with the pay roll. They ay the democrats were none too nxious to take him on, but felt ley-had to pay him for running independent against 'Field last fall and thus cinching Murphy's election. How the Senator would have scored that in somebody else's case. Opinions of Editors At The CaU Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T. H. C, T HE MLTI'NG and significant popular ballad, Why Can't This Night Go On Forever?, serves as a fitting musical background, for frothy and spicy hors de'oeuvres of matrimony. It is not a new plot, but, dressed in strictly modern clothes, with a rather daring treatment, it takes on sophisticated color. The producers, always with a wary eye cocked towards the censors, have given the sexless Bette JJavis the leading role in Ex- Lady, with the youthful, sincere Gene Raymond as partner in crime. Together, they literally get by with murder. A Jean Harlow in the title role would have been inconceivable. After experimenting with both free love and marriage, Helen (Bette Davis) decides that the latter is the lesser of two evils, which gives our story a moral, even if the implication is a bit left-handed The plot'is*,further-complicated and modernized .by the .fact that, the wife is also a business partner, being the artist in the advertising firm of which her husband is head. But the problem remains whether the wife is in business or in the tiome. Human nature stays pretty much the same; the same passions of jealousy, envy, and greed enter the picture, whether we dignify the relationship toy marriage or drift aimlessly along the current of free "ove. Ex-iLady is skilfully directed to ;ive little offense in situations which might easily have been suggestive and vulgar. The dialog is laring in references to the rela- :ions of man and woman, and several scenes are almost audacious, "k McHugh gives the needed comedy relief, in the role of the )lundering husband who always shows up at the critical time to save the wife's virtue. The short subjects in connection with the main feature were particularly atrocious. It's a pity to have o sit through two comedies of so ittle merit in order to witness a production which depends so much on the right mood for its enjoyment.., Ex-Lady is.a triumph.of the sombre, .fragile, 'blond beauty of Bette Davis, but Gene /Raymond had a much better part in Zoo in Buda>est. IpHE WARRIOR'S HUSBAND is a * modern burlesque on the an- ient Greek comedies of Aristo- 'hanes, and as a novelty is somewhat of a relief, after the social and economic dramas to which we lave been, subjected of late. Sump- uously staged and beautifully pho- ographed, the play is a delight to he eye as well as a welcome hange to the ear. We have been aklng our movies too seriously, we opine, and need the rough buf- oonery of a slapstick comedy idroitly played by an exceptionally capable cast. The plot, such as it is, concerns tribe of Amazons led by Queen Hippolyta (Marjorie Rambeau) who have relegated their men to he position of domestic 'animals. When war with the Greeks threat- ns, the Queen, to replenish her iminishing Coffers, agrees to mar- y an effeminite subject (Ernest 'ruex). The magic power of the Amazons eminates from the girdle if 'Diana, which is zealously guard- d but eventually falls into the tanas of the enemy. This deprives he women of their strength and where the sound was very bad. Added to the gutteral quality of Joe's voice was a certain cavernous echo which made the dialog almost Impossible to understand. We could not bring ourselves to sit through another session at the Call, so our impressions may be a bit biased. If you are a iBrown fan you probably enjoyed this talkie. 'Everybody to his taste, as the old lady Is reputed to have said. SAW A PftE-VIEW screening of the much-talked-atooul English musical 'comedy, Be Mine Tonight, and we can heartily recommend It to all true lovers ol Music. Yet It is not a miislca! comedy in the popularly accepted meaning of the word, rather more of a light opera, without. chorus work and/the',, regular musical comedy routine. This picture was taken in the Swiss Alps,' and the-scenes up the winding roads and along the cliff- bordered lakes for which this part of the world Is famous are simply gorgeous. If you love good music and beautiful scenery In your pictures, don't miss Be Mine Tonight when It comes to the Call soon. It Is not often that we recommend a picture, but this Is so unusual and worthy a production that we feel safe in giving readers the benefit of our personal reactions, if they are worth anything. jower. The assistant general of the Save By Buying Now. iBlooni'field Republican—Now is the time to make your purchases. A dollar will buy more today than it will next week, for nearly all merchandise prices are going higher, and will do so immediately. In many classes of goods, the upturn has already begun. As Seen by a Republican, •Knoxville Journal—The govern- «t no diminution in pay. All the ment is in . tne hands of a. group of ^president need do is to fix the going rate of pay as the minimum and ZO hours a week as the labor maximum. ' The great corporations would doubtless find a way to sur•vive that, but many if not most of the little fellows could not. The big dailies, for example, might be able to adjust themselves to it, tout nine •out of ten weeklies would have to shut up shop, 'In its largest sense the act is another distinct and startling departure from historic American indi- ^dualism. Our forefathers came to uhis country to escape governmental shackles of one kind and another. Up to 30 years ago the ordinary citizen hardly ever came into "direct contact with the federal government. How different today! '€*erhaps the change has been necessary, but the growing complexity -oi government, and the increasing tendency towards governmental regulation of everything, are not >without aspects which give thinking observers pause. WEEK NOT THE ISSUE IN THE JUNE 20 ELECTION Apparently there is general misconception among both drys and •wets concerning the issue which is be submitted to the electorate of Iowa in the special June 20. election on It seems to be taken for granted that if the drys win, then 3.2 beer, authorized last winter by Congress and the legislature, will thereby be outlawed. That is not the case. On the contrary, if the drys win, the situation as regards 3.2 beer will remain exactly what it is now; that is, the manufacture and/or sale of beer in Iowa will remain legal till the new Jaw is repealed or unless the federal courts hold it intoxicating and "by the 18th bold experimenters and all the isms of all the agitators of the past seem to be in a fair way of being tried out. The ancient landmarks of representative democracy are falling with deadly and unswerving regularity. From a Democratic Standpoint. Albia News—The -Roosevelt program is making itself felt. Controlled inflation, or whatever it may be called, has sent the electric current of new life tingling through' the veins of business and the reaction is very pronounced. We are •being literally lifted from the doldrums. For Hotheads to Think About Mum'boldt Independent—It cost the taxpayers of the state of Iowa 125,000 to send troops to Le Mars and Denison. The big bill, however, will come when prosperity returns and money loaners avoid the portion of the state that used mob violence in evading the ments of its debts. pay- therefore barred amendment. If the drys win, the result will not even be a mandate to the legislature to repeal the beer act. The status of beer In Iowa has «or the time being been settled and not l>e .in Issue In the June 20 on The Why of Price Changes. Eagle Grove Eagle — Corn or wheat, or hogs, may be one price one year and another price another, and it's their price that has varied, not the value, or "honesty" of the dollar. There is an inexorable law of supply and demand that largely accounts for changing prices. Where's the Hough Stuff? Northwood Anchor—-It is too early to form sound judgment yet but if there isn't any more roughneck stuff about this new beer than has been evidenced locally so far, it is pretty tame slop. Whats' tlie Answer to This? iStory City Herald — The Fort Dodge Independent speaks of "the yearly expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars in a futile attempt to stamp out tne liquor trade." Official figures show that the cost of prohibition enforcement from 1920 to 1931, inclusive, was $284,166,524. But the government collected in fines, penalties, and revenues from lawful liquors $548,- .mazon army is the fair and beau- iful Elissa Landi, who finally falls n lore with a young Greek warrior David Manners). That's all the plot—there isn't any more. Chief charm in The Warrior's Husband comes from the snappy dialog, strictly modern, put into the mouths of these ancients. When the stately Queen turns to her husband and says, "Scram!" the very incongruity of the remark is a laugh. Added to this is a rich quality of beauty which Director Jesse Louis .Lasky has put into this second picture he has made for Fox (the first being Zoo in .Budapest). 'Not a little comedy is introduced by the musical score, which includes all the old favorite and some modern jazz. A more competent quartet of principals could scarcely be imagined, men and women simply made for the roles they play. The hard-boiled old Queen; the lovely Elissa Landi- the timid, halting Ernst Truex- and the dashing Greek warrior, David Manners—what a scintillating bevy of stars. Not a box-office attraction, perhaps, but Is that always the test of a good talkie? CPECTATORS WHO SAW Walter ^ Huston in the stage version of Elmer the Great report that his portrayal of the conceited rookie who made good in the big leagues was a masterpiece. Written by Ring Lardner and George M. Cohan, the play has great possibilities for the right actor. Joe E •Brown is probably as well fitted for the role as any cinemactor, and in full fairness we must admit that it is one of his best characterizations. We have never been a Brown admirer, but he takes on a certain seriousness in JElmer the Great which lifts him out of the rut of boisterous slapstick in which he has been wallowing for some time This is the story of a small town .Babe Ruth who gets into the ibig "time" baseball circuit, becomes mixed up with a gang of speakeasy crooks, double-crosses his teammates, and finally , cornea through, to a glorious finish by outslickJng his shady associates and bringing victory to his organization in the .important "world's serious." The big scene in the stage production, we are told by those who saw it, was an eating orgy in which Elmer put away enough food to serve an army. In the picture this is also one of the high spots, and it is made doubly impressive by Joe's ample mouth Joe has been a good feeder in previous pictures. The worst fault in the screen version, perhaps, is the extreme improbability of a crucial ball game in a sea of mud. This may heighten comedy aspects of the play, but it lessens realism, and the play loses its veracity, if it ever had any. As we explained in la,st week's we saw Elmer ibe Great GOOD HOPE PLAY TO BE GIVEN AT WHITTEMORE AID Good Hope, May 30—A play, The Sewing Society, presented at Good Hope some weeks ago by Aid members, will (be repeated at Whittemore, under auspices of the Aid there, at the Catholic academy next Wednesday evening at 8 p. m. A small admission charge will be made, also a nominal charge for pie and coffee at the close of the play. It is expected to make this more of a social affair than a source of financial profit. The pubic Is invited. D. H. (Joeders to Speak— A meeting of the Good Hope Brotherhood will be held next Tuesday evening. D. H. Goeders, of the state fish and game commission, will speak. In addition there will- 'be musical numbers and a reading. There will be the usual recreation and refreshments. The program starts at 9. iBusy farmers will find it worth while to arrange •work to toe present. Fohn Moser Is Improving— John Moser, who suffered a stroke ten days ago, continues to mprove, though slowly. If no complications develop, it Is expected he will be able to resume, in some measure, his normal actlvi- ies. If improvement continues, his daughter Lola will return to her work at Mankato, from which she has been absent since her father's illness. Church Stewards to Meet— A meeting of the Good Hope church board of stewards is scheduled for'this week Thursday evening at the parsonage. This is important and should be attended by every member.
