MB. CODER, OP LAKOTA, ON THE SUPPLY OF MONEY . Mr. Coder, of Dakota, who Is Interested in the money question tout 3for some unexplained reason writes Tinder the name of his fellow townsman, Henry E. Schroeder, quotes the following editorial paragraph from the Advance in a com- -tnuication to the Lakota 'Record: "Street debaters who have for the last two or three years been -KO certain that low prices were -•<dne solely to lack of money, particularly gold, might note how the »grain markets have responded since been replaced. Thus, contrary to Mr. Coder's badly informed assumption, both our actual money In circulation and the money with which we do nine-tenths of our' business have been decreased, not increased, since Mr. Roosevelt took office, the one by a comparatively small 'amount, the other by a staggering sum; and of course it follows that Mr. Coder's argument that prices o) agricultural products have risen because Mr. Roosevelt increased the supply of money is patently untenable. Mr. Coder will have to find some other reason for the rise in prices; and let him note that the Advance has not said that supply and demand are the only fac- ors. Because so many people read hastily and draw erroneous conclusions, we desire to add, In conclusion, that nothing herein is intended as a reflection in any way on Mr. Roosevelt's course. In this editorial we are not discussing the wisdom, unwisdom, or the effects of what Mr. Roosevelt has done; we are merely attempting to set Mr. Coder right on the facts concerning the supply of money since Mr. Roosevelt took office. And Mr. Roosevelt himself would tell Mr. Coder exactly the same thing, Timely Topics Geo. E. Roberts in National City bank economic bulletin for July—The natural rise in prices which has occurred . . . confirms the opinion that the chief cause o£ the fall (in prices) was the disorder in production and exchange, the tanking difficulties and the loss of confidence, all interacting in the manner of a visious circle and that neither the money supply nor the monetary system was an important factor In It. No Increase in the circulation was necessary to make the turn, for the supply now is no larger than at the bottom of the depression a year ago, and is diminishing'. •widespread drought indicated short ^*rops. If a money crank could ever *e taught anything it might be -possible now to make him see that supply and demand cut a figure in .prices." Mr. Coder calls this "repudiated •economic theory," though he does mot say who has repudiated it. Then, almost in the same breath, lie says, "We are free to admit that supply and demand are a predominating influence in establishing price," which is going farther than the Advance did, for the Advance merely said they "cut a figure," while Mr. Coder attributes ?to them a "predominating" influence. We may overlook this little inconsistency, however, to get at Mr. ^Coder's main idea, which is that •the -recent rise in prices of agricultural products is due to greater ^supply of money brought about by ^President Roosevelt. Thus he says: "It was the supply of money that was chiefly responsible for^ corn and oats selling at 8c a bushel <nd hogs at 2c a pound, while more ithan one-third of the world was going to <bed hungry every night. These people (the one-third) were -«ot offering the low price (that is, were not buying) . . . 'because •Ihey were under-supplied with •*noney, the power to purchase." Mr. Coder's phrase "one-third of the world" taken in connection With his assumption that Mr. Roosevelt increased the supply of United States money, seems to imply that 4ie thinks Mr. Roosevelt somehow ^enabled that part of the one- third of the world which resides •"outside the United States to buy American agricultural products, "which certainly seems to be taking 4n considerable territory. But let 41 pass. What we want to get at 4s whether Mr. Roosevelt has in-creased the supply of money. There is an easy way to find out. Once a month the United States treasury publishes a circulation -Statement of U. S. money. Mr. Cod- •«r or any other citizen may have this statement sent free on application. Here are the figures for the ^circulation of money outside the treasury for the months beginning dn February, the June statement not yet being out: *^ebruary 28 $8,1.77/608,182 •larch 21 8,fi*39,936,972 April 30 8,294,426.757 «ay 31 8,093,632,252 Mr. Coder will perhaps note with some astonishment that on May 31 the supply of money outside the treasury was actually nearly $100 - tXW.OOO less than it was when Mr. -Roosevelt became president. The June statement will probably show -* further decline, or at least no •great increase. The March statement showed a •sizable increase, though far from enough to affect prices in any *narked degree, but that was when •all the banks were closed, and they fortified themselves with extra «ash to meet possible runs when -they reopened. As soon as this extra money was not needed it was withdrawn. So much far real money, that is. silver, and currency. Now for Governor Herring has announced :hat the special session of the legislature to consider tax revision will be called for September 16. The Brookings Institute plan, to obtain which the state appropriated $25,000, will be out a month beforehand. You can expect fireworks from August ,15 till the session ends. Public sympathy is with Mary Pickford in the latest [Hollywood matrimonial break-up. Despite her brilliant movie career, Mary must feel that in the most important way her life has been a failure. Twice she has seen romance shattered. She was never much of an actress, to our way of thinking, but at least her life has been clean. You can expect sharp price increases when the process taxes begin. It will not dp to complain, however, for that is what we bargained for, and if it works out as planned everybody ought to be sat - isfied. Even if the producers of raw materials still have to stand for disparity, better prices for their products will at least make payment of past debts a lot easier. Wallaces' Farmer says we are headed for worse trouble in hog prices than we already have. We ought to have cut production eight million head this year, but instead we increased it a million and a half. Also we have bred 13 per cent more sows for fall litters than a year ago. If the new farm act can be worked to control that situation, it will be a "whiz" and no mistake. •It seems to us that in the scramble for office the democrats are making a tactical mistake. They are too eager and unscrup- ulius. Looking on, people without political pull, including democrats, are likely to become disgusted. Everybody expects them to get the Jobs, but a little more resraint would look better. A year ago hogs and cattle were At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies ty t, H. C. pYNICAL CRITICS of matrimony ^- J often make the caustic remark, particularly when the principals possess rather glaring faults, that the marriage was 'fortunate, toe- cause It ruined only one family instead of two .We feel somewhat of the same mind concerning our chief screen exponents of the "flesh, 1 " Jean (Harlow and Clark Gable, when they are co-starred In the same production; at least they have spoiled but one picture. These may be harsh words, considering the tremendous box-office appeal of the Harlow-Gable team, but If we must see them at all, 'tis well to see them together in a play which panders to the frankly low instincts of the audience. Truth has its virtues, even In this case. It is also paradoxical that two sensualists like Harlow and Gable find it quite impossible to do anything daring, while • Actresses like Ruth CWattert/on., portray harlots and prostitutes with an abandon (and impunity) which is startling. This Is because we expect it in the one case and are surprised to find it in the other. Life, then, is a series of the unexpected. In Hold Your Man we have sickly sentimentallsm, some down-right dirty dialog, and little else except Gable and Harlow. The latter is losing even the voluptuous charm she once possessed, and now "alls completely Into the category of a washed-out blonde. (Hold Your .Man is the story of a prostitute and a petty thief, and t seeks to prove the old theory hat there is no deeper loyalty or ove than that which an erstwhile 'fallen woman" gives to her man when she finally finds him. Most of this affection is engendered while one or the other is behind bars, which sort of proves the theory, doesn't it?—or does it? We are at a loss to understand why the song, Hold Your (Man, was introduced into the picture, especially when neither Harlow nor Gable show musical ability. Perhaps it was to introduce the new Hollywood synonym for sex— "M-m-m-mmm."' The next time you hear some siren sigh "M-m-m," you'll know it isn't asthma or a pain in the neck, but just plain passion coming up for air. 'HE NUISANCE is .not an important contribution to 'the screen, but it is an adequate vehicle for displaying the talents of our T breezy pep-artist, Mr. Lee Tracy. This time we witness our hero as an ambulance-chasing shyster lawyer, certainly an original role, well calculated to give Mr. Tracy every opportunity to use his hands, roll his eyes, and drag his unwilling victims around by their arms. Lawyer Stevens (ILee Tracy) specializes in accidents and takes the part of each victim by virtually black-mailing the offender into large settlements. But when he gets mixed up with a traction company he meets his match. The company hires a young lady detective, ing, especially, we opine, to femln ine customers. , The plot, which Is of little con sequence, occupies far too much footage. There are four tremen dous scenes, climaxed by one of the niost dramatic spectacles tha either the screen or the stage has ever given us, Forgotten Man. In this scene, Joan Blondell rises to new heights of stardom, and it is to her credit that this dramatic finale leaves you with a pleasan feeling of having witnessed a truly great production. The opening num her, We're in the Money, is a clever beginning, and the hog-latin Interlude by Ginger Rogers is origina and amusing. (Retting in the Park is reminiscent of Paul Whiteman's similar number in The King of Jazz, and it suffers somewhat by comparison The disrobing sequence in this number is more sensational than beautiful, and beauty, we take -it is the ultimate goal for all musical comedies. The big scene, in which phosphorescent violins play on a darkened stage, is too long, and while extremely novel, it soon becomes monotonous in execution. A few more close-ups of the voluptuous and beautiful chorines would have giv«n this number added beauty and charm. Truth to tell, after stressing the all too apparent fact that the country was scoured in an effort to assemble a chorus of outstanding beauty, the producers lell down by giving us too few close-ups of the faces and figures of these intriguing members of the ensemble. With these valuable criticisms and suggestions, Warnei^ Bros, may now plan a new and original Gold Diggers which will outshine all their previous efforts at musical comedy. And the service, of course, is entirely gratuitous on our part. Iowa Wins Case Beer. Swea City, July 11—Iowa and Minnesota had a tug of war at Hand's Park July 4. Iowa won, Minnesota protested, saying they won because of more men participating, but the winners, however, quickly consumed the prize, a case or 3.2 beer, settling the argument. TUtonka Couple Separate. There is trouble between Mr. and Mrs. Dick Fuls, near Titonka. In last week's Topic Mr. Fuls published a notice that Mrs. Fuls had left him and he would no longer be responsible for debts she might contract.

V^'^ " ^ low prices at the time, nobody is blaming Roosevelt today. It is strange how an intelligent people will sometimes hold the head of the government responsible for unfavorable economic conditions over which he has no more control than the man in the moon. YOU have doubtless heard occasionally .that in France and Germany wheat sells at several times the American price. It may help a blonde, a bottle, and a clever confident (Charles Butterworth) figure. Then he gets the release of his wife (who has been Imprisoned for perjury) and with their differences patched up they are apparently on the road to everlasting cinema happiness, whatever that means. 'The chief drawback to The Nuisance is the rather listless acting of Madge Evans, who takes the part of the'woman in the case. She does to understand why if you know that; not appear to be as clever as the neither country raises enough for its own needs and a tariff is therefore effective. The French tariff is 85c a bushel, and the German tariff is $1.62. Naturally, therefore, the French or German farmer gets more for his wheat than the American wheat farmer, who has to meet the competition of the .rest of the world. Opinions of Editors , . what' is as much money for al practical purposes as coin or bills to-wit, bank deposits. It ought not : to be necessary to quote figures to -show that this kind of money, in -which we do about nine-tenths of our business, suffered a greai Shrinkage when Mr. Roosevelt took •office. This was because a large proportion of the banks were either aot reopened at all when the bank "holiday ended or were reopened With restrictions which tied up all deposits as of March 4. Many hundreds of banks, as Mr. Coder knows, are still operating under restrictions, including two •in our own county. According to «. recent statement given out at D«s Moines, about half the banks Of Iowa were operating under restrictions, and no depositor in such a bank could draw out a dollar of Ids account as it stood on March f. Similar conditions existed in many other states—in all states in come degree. The supply of money thus retired from circulation ran into the billions, and it has not Foresters Hare Easy Life. • Humboldt Independent — A soldier in Roosevelt's army draws $30 a month, plus keep .-and medical attendance, fte works five days a week, eight hours' a day, and : is provided with radio, movies, and other amusements. It's a gay life. Iowa farm hands, work from 10 to 14 hours a day, draw about .$15 and keep a month and work six days a week. The Upturn Looks Genuine. Marshalltown T.-R.—It no longer is an opinion that business is on the upgrade, Dun & OJradstreet say. It is a fact. Besides, it is one which has come on so suddenly that its full significance is yet to be comprehended. Farmers Must Organize. Wbittemore Champion — In the long run improvement in financial conditions must come through de- veloning the farm .producing and selling . structure in accordance with inexorable economic laws. And in this work the farmer's greatest ally is not the government, but his own cooperative organization. Car Sales Show Upturn. Bancroft Register—One of the best indications that times are lietter, ami that not everyone is broke, is the decided upturn in the sale of automobiles since May 1. In Kossuth county almost 60 new cars have beeen sold in the last eight weeks, averaging almost one a day. This Is Getting: Personal. Waverly Independent—When Mr. Morgan evaded payment of income ;ax through scrupulous observance of a law very carefully drawn by congress, was he more guilty than the 1,423 residents of Bremer county who last year failed to retort their full amount of moneys and credits? I ploti would require her to be. Frank Morgan takes the role of an unscrupulous, hard-drinking doctor assistant to Lawyer Stevens' wild schemes. Mr. Morgan is the screen's busiest actor these days. In the short span of two weeks, we have now seen him in important roles in When Ladies Meet, Trick for Trick, Reunion in Vienna, Kiss Before the Mirror, and the present production. In all these plays, Mr. Morgan has given us splendid characterization. His work now takes on the aspect of a stock company, which one attends for almost the sole reason of seeing an actor take a different personification each night.or week, as the case may be. Such activity as this merits special, commendation, especially since the parts are so intelligently taken. , T.VSTEAD of IMITATING the sen- 'sational four-year old success, Gold Diggers of Broadway, Warner Bros, chose rather to pattern Gold Diggers of 1933 after their recent musical comedy hit, "42nd Street." In this they erred, in our humble opinion. A second mistake was to ballyhoo Gold Diggers as a strictly musical-girl show, when as a matter of fact, the musical comedy part of the picture occupies but a fourth of the film. If the public wants musical comedy, (and the fact that the entire advertising program was built up on this assumption shows that the producers believe it), then why not, in heaven"s name, give 'em what they want? Regardless of .all this, Gold Diggers of 1933 is a better show than "42nd Street." If Warner Bros, are laboring under any misapprehension as to why this show is packing theatres all over the country, we'lj set them right on this one fact It is the memory of the old Gold Diggers of Broadway, not "42nd Street," that does the trick. Gold Diggers of 1933 is almost an exact counterpart of "42nd Street," except that the production end is featured rather than the chorus girl angle. And the cast, too, is somewhat similar, with the exception of Joan Blondell, who, incidentally, steals the show. Ned Sparks does not measure up to the excellent characterflzation of the harassed producer which Warner Baxter gave us; and Ruby Keeler, with her drawling, whining voice, is a disappointment—her solitary tapdance is poorly staged in-a costume that is atrocious. Guy Kibbee and Warren William are excellent, as usual, and the youthful, attractive Juvenile, Dick Powell, is pleas- who exposes Stevens in his fraud- ning in honor of Mrs. (Frank War- ulent practices, but not 'before she ner, Des Moines. has fallen in love with him and he with her.
