The Industries were too slow. Production was speeding up; the creation lagging -tit purchasing power was -lar behind. So President Roosevelt •drawn up a blanket code, and it is *o be observed by each industry till it adopts one of its own and gets 4t approved. This blanket code is In the form of a contract between ; the president and each employer. .The biggest corporation in the «ountry and the blacksmith employing only one man in a town of more than 2,500 population will alike sign -with the president on •^dotted lines. The agreements take -effect September 1. The object ot this and all codes 4s to cut hours but not wages for -labor already employed and pro- Vide employment for new labor to tnake up for the shortened time of the labor now employed. It is hop«d in this way to re-employ the Jinillions now out of work. That will •create purchasing power, which ha -turn will create demand for goods, And soon everybody will be em- Germany. Can Roosevelt get away with it in America? Are we undergoing an economic and social revolution or merely!;a-temporary period of experimentation? "Are the industries of the United States to be placed under the same type of government supervision as the railroads? Is the rugged individualism of the past 1*50 years to give place to bureaucratic control? No one seems to know the answer to these questions, but we are on the way and going somewhere. The future looks Interesting but not reassuring." This may be digested In the light of the fact that Mr. Curtis is a lifelong strong republican and a former, if not present, member of the republican state central committee, also a postmaster under Hoover. Nevertheless, what Mr. Curtis says carries weight, and undoubtedly expresses the attitude of many democrats as well as republicans, particularly business executives in the higher 'brackets. : This is not an attitude of condemnation of the Roosevelt politics. It is the attitude :,of the 4 .agnostic in religion: "I don't.know." It is not even an attitude of unfriendliness. The agnostics have suffered as much as anyone in the depression and they will rejoice as much as anybody If the presidential program is successfully worked out. And they will wholeheartedly co- nas operate to the extent of their abil- lity. The Colyum let's Kot fce too B—4 Bertou At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T. H. C. T HE FUNNY NEWSPAPER "breaks" exemplified recently in the Colyum are rivaled, it appears, In letters received by the Pension Bureau. The Iowa Publisher quotes— "I have received my Insurance polish." "You ask my allotment number. I have four boys and two girls." "I have got no pay from my husband and will soon be forced to lead an immortal lite." "Please correct my name, as I could not go under a consumed one." "He was born and brung up In this house according to your instructions. I am his grandmother and grandfather." "I am -writing to ask why 1 have not received my elopement." ">Dear Mr. Wilson—I have written to Mr. Headquarters and received no reply. If 1 don't hear soon I will write to Uncle Sam." "I have not heard from John since he was sent to a constipation camp in Germany." "I am writing in the Y. M. C. A. with the piano playing in my uniform." Among the Editors .ployed full time again. Such is the theory. So-called "white collar" workers, that is, store clerks, etc., are to <work not more than 40 hours a «reek. Nevertheless the places 'Where they work are to be kept •open 62 hours, unless they were •open fewer hours before July 1. Mechanics are to.work only 35 hours a week, except that they may work 40 hours during any six weeks between now and January 1. -Sight hours daily is the limit. No •children undqr 16 are to be employed more than three hours daily, and then only after seven Jn the morning and before seven at •might. Some exceptions are provided but In general the code applies to everybody who employs labor. Though hours are reduced, pay •3s not to be reduced. Employes whose time is cut are to get the «ame total weekly wage as before, and employers must also pay the -help required to take their places. The pay is not in any case to be less than 40c an hour unless it was "below that on July 15. In any event it i§ not to be less than 30c •an hour. In towns of less than £500 wages are to be raised 20 per «ent, but not to more than $12 a week. Finally, this agreement is voluntary, but the names of all who agree are to be posted in postof- tfices throughout the land, and the public is to be asked by the government to patronize only establishments which have agreed. This will be a boycott under government -auspices against recalcitrants. How this plan will work out may be understood by applying it concretely, say .to the Advance, which ;is a factory employing both "white *ollar" workers and mechanics. "There are lour "white collar" workers and four mechanics. Two of the "white collar" workers do not •count because they are employers. The other two are to work only 40 tours a week and get the same "weekly wage they are now getting. The four mechanics are to work •only 35 hours a week, yet receive the same wage they get now, which 4s considerably above the minimum lixed in the new deal. The working time is now 51 hours a week. The two "white collar" •employes are to lay off 11 hours a week each,-or a total o£ 22 hours, •and the Advance is to employ another worker or workers to make Tip for the 22 hours. The four mechanical employes «re to lay off 16 hours a week *piece, or a total of 64 hours, and the Advance is to employ another -worker or workers to substitute. We are not to pay either the "white collar" or mechanical substitutes less than 40c an hour un- Jess they were getting less than that on July 15, and if they were not getting 30c then we are to raise to that figure. We are also to increase all present wage schedules by an unstated *ut so-called "equitable" figure. "We are not to use any subterfuge to get around these requirements. The plan does not aay what em- Uloyers who do not have the in- «ome to pay more wages than they •Are paying now are to do. Presumably they are not to quit business, since that would throw all their employes out of work. There 3s a problem here that will •"stump" hundreds of thousands of --employers in the lower brackets, if not in the upper brackets too, and -it may "stump" the government Question of the Day. •Estherville Vindicator & Republican—'Answer this riddle if you can: Who will pay the tax bill, if taxes rise as fast during the next tpn years as during the past ten, and if more tax-exempt government business reduces taxable private enterprise? , What's the Joker ? Ellsworth News—Speaking about telephones, you know (or maybe you don't know) the rate here is so low you can't afford to 'be without one. If you only put in two calls a month you save phone rent money in shoe-leather alone. The phone rent Is 50c a month. Yeah—Just Ask the Germans. Traer Star-Clipper—Wilbur Glen Voliva, overseer of Zion,-predicts that the world is now entering a seven years' drouth during which wheat will sell at $48 a bushel. And if we get the right kind of inflation it won't have to wait for the drouth to put it up to that figure.. Record Iowa Temperatures. Knoxville Express — Meteorologist Charles D. Reed doesn't believe oldtimers can beat the official records of the past quarter- century. He says the hottest day in Iowa was August 3, 1930, when Sac City registered 113 degrees, Knoxville 108, and all stations in the state averaged 1W.36. The coldest day was January 12, 1912, when 47 below was reported from Washta. There's Sound Sense in This. •Humboldt Independent — The good business is the one that returns a moderate profit through a "I have been in bed 13 years with one doctor and intend to try another..' ABJECT APOLOGIES and compliments to old Geoge Gallarno, editor of Plain Talk, Des Moines, who writes. "Oes Moines, July 21 — Oh, gee gosh! Now see what the ever discriminating linotype feller "has went and done." Inspired the other day by the sweltering and scorching sun, we writ a hot weather tribute to June, and told the "gents and ladies" how it would 'make a summer resort of hades." The discriminating operator of the linotype, knowing our mental poetical limitations, put quotation marks around the rhyming lines. Then the Humboldt Republican seized on tUSm; without'i cre'dit; to be followed by your Colyum, giving credit to the Republican. We don't blame the editors. •„But, leyvens. sake, as : Dick t/it'tle'would say, if we have, in our long life, said one bright thing that calls for reprinting, we kinda want the other editors of the state to know that we did it, ourselves, with our own 'battered, bruised, and out of date Smith- Premier typewriter; not necessarily for publication, you know, but just as evidence that the old 'brain pan does' scintillate once in a decade. What say?" EAGER IN MY humble way to help Nira along, I bought a new shirt the other day, & was outraged to find it riveted together with 9 pins.—H. S. M. in Over the Coffee. You were cheated, Mister. The A DYED In. the. wool Dr«l- ser-enthuslast could fully appreciate the screen version ot on« ot his most celebrated and controversial novels, Jennie Cterhardt, When the book waa written a ntim* her of years ago It aroused a storm of protest for Its daring frankness. This was before the author had achieved a place In American letters. But after all, it Is just the sordid, realistic story ot a woman's life, certainly nqthlng for censors to get excited about. The ecreen has caught the spirit ot the book, as well as the style of Theodore Dreiser, and as a result, Jennie Gerhardt, talkie, Is one ot the most stupendous "little"-'things ever filmed. The plot has to do with a woman who, because ot straightened circumstances of her family and her own Innocence, finds herself trapped 'in 'the-maelstrom or/Lite.; Her trusting nature, her capacity tor isympathy, her naive charm make her the victim ot a series of dramatic episodes. She never feels the security of marriage, though she is a mother once and a mistress twice. Like most of Mr. Dreiser's novels, there Is a sordidness ot theme, a tremendousness of tragedy in Jennie Gerhardt. We are constantly impressed with the abject cruelty of Fate and the hopelessness of lite in this simple yet compelling story about • a woman who gave her own happiness in order that others might be happy. Her sacrifice is genuine and without the mawkish sentimentalism which features so many of. our cheaper movies. When Jennie sees the last bit of happiness fade as the one man she really loves dies, there is a note of sincerity in her voice as she says, "I shall never be unhappy again." The belated realization that she has been the source of inspiration to this man in his business conquests, that she has been his guiding star in his moments of uncertainty, brings her, in her loneliness, the little cheer and hope of her life. It is a touching story, simply told, superbly acted, by Sylvia Sidney and Donald Cook. In the hands of this duo, : every shading. of emotion, 'every vestige of passion and feeling, leaves a beautiful and.last- ing imprint on their characters. Director Marion Gerlng has caught the significance of the novel, and has followed the pattern of the plot faithfully and courageously. Unlike .The American. Tragedy, Jennie" Gerhardt has the stamp of the author's approval, and it is a tribute to a famous novelist and to our maturing talkies, that this combination has been worked out so successfully. May we have others. TF YOU SAW the inimitable Li' ohel Barrymore in "Sweepings," you saw him at his best as Daniel Pardway, doting father of four mo- long period of years. There is no such thing as high profits and a permanent 'business. 'Capital seeks investment wherever returns are high. High profits compel competition. Competition kills profit. It is a simple process, but it contains a truth that the thoughtless never learn, Iteno Concern in Receivership. •Mt. Vernon Record — 'The Farmers Union Mutual !Life Insurance comr pany, one of Milo Reno's companies, is in trouble, and. .receivership other day when we took a new shirt to Tailor Guehl to have the left sleeve sawed off he removed 17 pins by count.

Various financial transactions that wquld put anything shown up in the Morgan investigation to shame have been charged by the plaintjffs. It will be tough luck for any farmers who carry insurance in that company to lose it. Bank Reopened .AS AIV AG.XOSTIC SJifiS THE ROOSEVELT POLICIES Editor M. L. Curtis, of the Knox- Ville Journal, whoae too few editorials command attention because "there is "meat" in them, remarks: "Can American business be restricted within the rigid limits of fcureaucratic control with fixed prices, wages, hours of labor, and limitation of output? Mussolini did •It In Italy. Hitler is doing it to [Bancroft Register.] The reorganization of the Farmers & Traders Savings bank has been completed. The books have been checked by state officials, and everything has been found in order. Depositors' agreements have .been signed in such large numbers that not one bit of solicitation on the' part of bank officials or^ business men became nec£s^ary" • •JjMblic. funds have been released, accounts are being segregated,,interest pay- mnts figured, and on Monday, July 24, 50 per cent of all deposits will be available. Under state law those who have neglected to sign trust agreements are bound by the reorganization plans just the same as though they had signed. Thus there will be no favoritism to anyone, and each and every depositor will be bound by the 50 per cent agreement. There is no real estate listed in the holdings of the reorganized institution, no bills payable or rediscounts, and nothing but the best securities have been retained, passed upon by the state authorities. In banks opened without restrictions, all paper formerly in their files remains there, but in reorganized banks, such as the local institution, all doubtful assets have been set out. All new deposits since the bank holiday are 100 per cent liquid and will be paid on demand. All depos its made hereafter will be protectec by investments made carefully am shrewdly, and with the approval of the state. High grade bonds will be carried in the bank files, and other good liquid securities will be retained. Bancroft has never been withoui a bank, with the exception of the period of time covered by the national banking holiday. Those few days gave people an idea of the difficulties encountedel in a community without banking facilities Those who have watched the progress made locally during the past few months have been highly gratified by the action taken toy banking officers* The newly reorganized bank is a good bank, owned and operated by local capital, and under the strict and careful supervision of a completely reorganized state banking department. of the .basement?

HAVE WE ANY reason to assume that because the principal nations could not make agreements in June, 1933, that they are never again going to find advantages in making them?—Walter Lippman in Saturday's Register. The double-thatters, like the "in- advertant" spellers, .are not confined t*> lowbrow literary circles. therless children. The picture covers a wide scope, of time, beginning with the great Chicago fire. About this time Daniel and his bride arrive in Chicago and start in business with a small mercantile establishment called The Bazaar. With the birth ot each of his four children a new department is added. It is Daniel's great love for his "store" and his ambition for his children_that form the keynote to this story. Daniel's wife dies after the last child is born, so she is spared the great disappointment that comes to him later. Business and family are closely allied in his life. He plans constantly for the welfare of his children, Gene, Phoeb^, Bert, and Fred. The love and reverence he' holds for his "store" is shared by his associate, Abe, not by the children. Each child follows his own pastimes. As in Pearl Buck's novel, "Sons," "Sweepings" is a story of frustrations and defeat; a bit of life's drama which proves that children are often a disappointment to parents in choosing their vocations. A ray of hope illuminates the last scene, ^however, as the father dies within sight ot his beloved "Bazaar." The youngest' son says, "I will try, father." And we are left with the feeling that the son will "carry on." Sharing honors with Mr. Barrymore .in his masterful portrayal, Gregory >Ratoff, Russian Jew, turns in a convincing and memorable performance as Abe, general manager of the Bazaar.

Here we have the engines of the steamer, the stepping of the actors, the entire movement of. the play, .cleverly set to tuneful melodies. The big scene (and every musical comedy seems to stress a big scene) comes at the very end In an Ice-skating ballet which is both beautiful and novel.

T HE NARROW CORNER, from the novel by William Somersel Mau«h*m; ig' interestiijg'because of superb characterization of the philosophical, opium-smoking doctor given us by Dudley Dlges. "The best formula for life," says the old sage, is "have no regrets." "Life is short, Nature Is hostile, and Man is ridiculous," concludes the kindly old physician; which sort of sums up the thing in a concise manner Mr. Dlgges has a penhant for playing roles with that quiet, convincing homeliness which makes him a real character in every movie in which he. has appeared. The story has) however, been completely ruined by an asinine Pollyana ending which would gag a dog: the lovers floating off to Nowhere in a sail boat which net ther one is able to man with a promise of happiness even as empty as the fleecy clouds above their heads. Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Ralph Bellamy, and one Patricia Ellis assume the so-called leading roles. Young Doug' mouths his lines dramatically and amateurishly, while the rather good-looking Patricia sports' around in a long shawl and displays her figure. Poor Ralph becomes so disgusted that he goes off and shoots himself;'and It's a pity that Doug didn't think of that too. Of much greater import, on this gala Friday evening.-.was the Hollywood Premiere'.offered, by local characters'Who -impersonated stars of Movieland. Chief among "stars" were Billie Dove, Katherine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, Mickie McGulre and Cab Calloway. It was alone worth the price of admission to see Florence .Reynolds, Titonka, impersonate ponderous "When-the- Moon - Comes -Over-the-Mountain" Kate Smith, one of the most expert pieces of local impersonation we have ever witnessed. Miss Reynolds has a pleasing and friendly personality, and in addition she possesses a sweet and melodious voice. This young woman, incidentally, won First from the judges on her contribution to the program. NEW IOWA LAW FOR ASSIGNEES OF MORTGAGES Swimming legacy I* a«d youngsters ihcfm are much Requires Report to County Auditor to be Valid. The last General -Assembly passed an act of vital interest to assignees of mortgages, and it applies not only to future ass gneeu but to past assignees who hold unsatisfied mortgagee. Such assignments, if not recorded in the county recorder's office, must be reported by the assignees to the county auditor within 30 days after July 4, when the act took effect.

Pa Olson in Story City Herald. Mebbe so, Pa. But what troubles us now is whether the Century spells "imposter" with an "e." IT WAS THE English' who thought up this NIRA scheme; we. mean the idea of coining a name out of the title of the National Industrial Recovery Act, not the act itself. In the late so-called war they passed a "Defense of the Realm Act" and nicknamed it "Dora." And it beats ours in one way—pronunciation. Who knows M ORE THAN A decade? ago, - the Associated Advertising - clubs of the world' started out" to - clean up retail advertising in this country with • the-r result that Truth in Advertising (the slogan) became a sort of gospel in business. We urge a dose of the same medicine be administered to the producers of moving pictures before the patient (the customer) dies. But in Melody Cruise the offence is less flagrant than in either "42nd Street" or Gold Diggers, and for that reason we give this little musical picture a clean bill. Melody Cruise is Ideal hot weather entertainment. There are songs, beautiful nautical settings, gorgeous girls, and Funnyman Charles Ruggles, gasping, stutter- Ing, "Oh-my-goodness" comedian doing his stuff in his characteristic manner. Good-looking, western- coast idol, Phil Harris, is the so- called "juvenile" in this fast moving farce-comedy, and the plot is the usual, one of infidelity. The dis- coveyy of two 'beautiful women, step-in clad, in his stateroom, causes Mr, Ruggles some extremely anxious moments and gives him the opportunity for the kind of explain- that always gets a laugh from pONSTANT REPITITION is one ^-* of life's major irritations. It often wrecks homes, brings discord into business relations, and plays havoc with friendships. A phrase repeated again and again—a cough more a habit than a necessity—a peculiar laugh always the same— these are the trifles that bring on misery and dissension. As we write this column of criti-» cism, week after week, year after year, we note endless repetition of words and phrases. A picture is "outstanding" or "gigantic," a director is "subtle" or "masterful, 1 the photography is ."marvelous" or "magnificent" — always the same words, .-always ,the same phrase? If'this becomes; irksome to the dear readers, think how maddening it becomes to the writer.- With thousands of good words from which to choose, that one must repeat and repeat, always the same singsong always the identical expressions to describe pictures! •Even the movies are prone to repeat situations which the producers feel accord with the spirit of the times. A few weeks ago we had an epidemic of comedy scenes in which men went into ladies' res' rooms to escape the law or other pursuants. Mo less than four successive pictures gave us this highly (?) elevating bit of so-called cinema humor. Of late at least three talkie have stressed Boulder Dam. In two scenes at the dam have been photo graphed. In another the enterprise was merely .mentioned. Of cours< we have become accustomed to re petition on'.a .grand scale,. in,simi Jarity of plot,ideas eyer, since tju first talkies • found vbjce. We hayi had, cycles ,of ganger: pictures airplane pictures,'and the like; but inside.the circle we now find the self-same repetition of scenes am situations. And so life goes on, with eacl ^of us developing "pet" words and phrases that cause friends to wan to commit murder; with each o us walking, sneezing, or coughing in exactly the same way, till som< kindly enemy makes a smart-cracl that saves the day. Who says good enemy isn't an asset in build ing character? - Text of the law. Apparently the object of* the act is to provide an easy means to check up on moneys and credits for taxation. The text of the law follows: "Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa: "Section 1. The assignment, sale, or transfer ot all real estate mortgages Or notes secured by real estate or other evidences of Indebtedness secured by real estate mortgages, shall be reported to the County Auditor of the residence of the assignee, by the assignee thereof, within thirty (30) days from the date of the execution of said assignment, sale, or transfer, unless such assignment - be recorded in the 'ounty Recorder's office of the ounty in which the assignee re- ides. Unreported Assignments Invalid. "Section 2. No such assignment hall be of any validity until the ame be reported to said County Auditor. "Section 3. The assignment, sale, r transfer of mortgages or notes ecured thereby, heretofore sold.as- igned or transferred, shall be re- jorted to the County Auditor, foresaid, within thirty (30) days fter' taking effect of this act." Non-Resident Puzzle. The law is. of particular interest o any assignee living in Iowa who s a non-resident of the county in which the property is situated. Though not always done, it has been customary to record assignments in the county where the property is located, and this has been, egally necessary to preserve rights gainst subsequent assignees who might obtain assignments, without mowledge of previous assignments. At present the non-resident assignee must also report the assignment to the county auditor in the county where he resides, and this applies not only to assignments in 'uture but to past assignments which are still alive. The act provides that assignments not reported in accordance with its provisions shall be of no validity. New Record Rook Required.
