AS WALTER LIPPMANX SEES THE NIEA PROGRAM Walter Lippmann, former edito of the now defunct democratic New York World whose powerfu syndicated free lanco editorials appear In the Des Moines Register Jtas lor the most part strongly sympathized with the new administration's program, but as regards one Aspect of the NIRA blanket code lie dissents. Mr. Lippmann points out what is undoubtedly true, namely that with *he best will in the world there is a -vast multitude of employers on a small scale who cannot comply wttb, NIRA as interpreted in the agreement with the president because they do not have the required resources. The case as regards the large corporations is different. In the boon times they profited enor- mopsiy. They are highly organized, they have great reserves, their credit is first-class, in short they are in a position to observe the terms of the agreement without undue embarrassment, financial or otherwise. The administration, Mr. Lippmann thinks, is justified in demanding the utmost from them. There is no evidence, according to Mr. Lippmann, that the smaller •empteyers ever profited unduly in the boom times. At any rate they liave no reserves now, after three years of depression, and their credit is gone, if they ever had any. "Most of them are now pursuing a %and-to-mouth existence, and many of them never do any better, even 3n the best of times. Yet it is demanded that they let their em- ployes off after 35 or 40 hours and -ihire new employes to do the remaining work. Obviously this will be an impossibility in the case of hundreds of thousands of small employers. Nor are conditions equal between small employers in different lines. In the average town of Algona's Bize the clothier, for example, and ttw baker doubtless finish a year with about the same net income— provided the baker is fairly prosperous, which is seldom the case. •4tat the clothier requires the help •«t only one or two 40-hour white collar workers, while the baker •mast employ a half dozen or more liands, most of them 35-hour wage- earners. 4r Who is going to distinguish between the shopkeeper who is pock- •eting good profits and the shopkeeper who is just managing to exist?" Mr. Lippman asks this question, and he goes on to ask: "Are we really going to let loose from Washington, with all the mass appeal of modern propaganda, a public opinion which is quite incapable of dlstinguUhlng between what "Washington is beginning to call •tae slacker' and the man who would like to have his button and look like a patriot but simply has not the money to get his button?" Mr, Lippmann does not -hesitate to call such a policy "brutal." He Adda that it is intolerable that the tederal government should, without Investigation of circumstances presume to incite public judgments •on whether "this man or that is a slacker or a patriot." "AH over this country today,' •saya Mr. Lippmann, and everybody •knows it is true, "there are men with little shops who in the face «t Incredible difficulties have just managed to stay in business." Is :K possible that their government means to denounce them as "slack- «rs" and propagandize their customers to leave them merely be •cause they are not in a position to . -do what the government wants? "Suppose John Smith, on the corner, takes on three more men, gets Ills button, and Tom Brown, down the street, cannot take on more •sen, and loses to Smith a part of Igscpstomers," says Mr. Lippmann "What have you accomplished? Probably you have ruined Tom Brown, who then defaults on his lease, stops paying his taxes, anc cannot meet his mortgage. Does anyone seriously think that kind of tfcing will make us prosperous?" THE GOEDERS CASE AS SEEX BY EDITOR BRANAGAN Editor Branagan, of the Emmets- era should step out and that h! position should be filled by a dem ocrat who can be depended upon t work harmoniously with the pur poses of the democratic organlza tion. After all, we are living unde a system of party government. W see no reason why, at this time, w •should change to any other sys tern." To begin with, this is ungenor ous, coming from Emmetsburg which In the past has expected, ah has usually received, support from Algona for its political candidate without regard to party. In the second place, the Demo crat's comment confirms the gen eral impression that the movemen to oust Ooeders is purely politica There is nothing to show that h has neglected his duties or don anything in an official capacit subject to criticism. The charge o standpatism is supported by n facts. Thirdly, nothing is set ou against the Goeders record fo democracy except the \ 'statemen that he voted twice in republican primaries. This was when ther was no hope of democratic succes and the only way a democrat coul exercise an Influence on state poll cies was to help the republican nominate men known to favor a program in which he believed. Timely Topics burg Democrat, published the lowing editorial last week: fol- "A serious effort is being made to displace Dennis Goeders, of Algona, as member of the Iowa fish amd game commission. It is charged that Goeders, though named to the position by Governor Turner as 01 democratic appointee, was in reality a republican, because he vot- «d in the 1928 and 1930 republican, primaries. What other test have we of any man's party affiliations? "What Iowa republican newspapers fail to state regarding the Goeders controversy are the charges l»y the state democratic officials that the Algona man can always be depended upon to line up with the two standpat members of the •commission in the general policies of that body. Iowa democrats have not forgotten the intense partisanship of J. N. (Ding* Darling, Des lloiaes Register cartoonist, in past presidential campaigns. The Des Moines Register representative prokably sets the pace for the commission. In Goeders he evidently feaa a sympathetic friend. "•emocrats generally have long locked for Mr. Goeders' resignation «s a member of that body but up The figures show that some 1,500,000 jobless were put back to work In June. An estimate of 300,' 000 more was made for July. Thai eaves something more than 11,000,000 yet out of work, which is enough to explain why the NIRA scheme has been adopted. The forgotten man in Washing- on just now seems to be the vice president. Asked suddenly, prob- ibly half the people would have to iiink to recall who he is. And you laven't been hearing so much .bout Professor Moley, either, of ate. And as for Hoover—who is more forgotten than he? Our na- ional set-up of notables is a con- tantly revolving kaleidoscope. Attempts to interfere with the iperations of economic law so ; of- en fail that it is always unwise to e too sure about the.result. But he new regulations limiting daily rice fluctuations in the grain ex- hange markets look like a good hing-, and if experience proves fa- orable the scheme ought to be ontinued. Mr. Coder, of Lakota, denies that : was he who wrote .the Lakota Record communication' erroneously ttributing the recent higher pric- s for farm products to more mon- y in circulation. It doesn't make much difference, for he and the ther Lakota gentleman who write n the 'money question see alike and are equally unimpressed by ecretary Woodin's monthly statements which show that there is ctually less monetary circulation ow than there was five months go. The national doings since March have elbowed state issues into he background, but they will hortly come forward again. The Jrookings report will be out in wo weeks, and the legislature will econvene in September. You can ook soon for a few months of in- eresting news from Des Homes. Sales taxes are always unfair to the less able to pay, but to reduce property taxation and reach all classes of people we may have to resort to them in some degree/rA ross income tax to raise all state revenue would, however, work heavy injustice and outrageously favor the rich, •'.!>'"• Opinions of Editors Gamblers Have Learned Nothing Swea City Herald — As one watches the markets from day to day he becomes more firmly convinced that the cock-eyed public has learned nothing since the stock market crash of 1929.

Esther-vine V. & R. — Recen' rains almost Insure this part o; Iowa a great crop of corn. It is nearly all in silk and tassel, and the rains mean that the ears wll be well filled. And best of all is that the price will be more tham eight cents a bushel, probably six or seven times that. Both Parties Do It, Humboldt Independent — They say that placing alj postmasters under the civil service will make the postoffices "safe for democracy." That is, it wilj till the republicans are returned to power and make the postoffices "safe for republicanism." Let Us Support Uoosevelt. Knoxville Journal—The respense of the nation to President Roosevelt's plea for national cooperation in the movement to increase employment was Instantaneous and heartening. Every thoughtful citizen must sincerely hope that it will be a 100 per cent success. Question of the Day. Northwood Anchor—One of the questions which arise in connection with NIRA, the new governmental plan to decrease working hours and inaugurate a five-day week, is what are we going to do with the extra time on our hands? Will the leisure hours be profitably spent or will they provide just so much more time in which to perform unprofitable things? The Colyum Let's Kot be too D— 4 Seriont D ON'T SHOOT! This alleged In terview with a farmer in the New York Times is meant in tun— "How're things on the farm, Cy ' "Purty good, I guess; I won' know for certain till I hear from Washington. They keep the books I get a quarterly report on how I've been doin'." "How're all the cows?" "I dunno much about them cows I've sort of lost touch." "How so?" "Well, the administration Is look ing after the herd now. A federa man drives 'em to and from pas ture and a cabinet officer milks em. "Is your poultry doing well." "Purty good.

He's got the hens laying two eggs a day now." 'How can a hen lay two eggs a day?" "I dunno. The Brain Trust say; it's all part »f the new order." "How's crops, Cy?" "Everything looks purty fair, although I wouldn't know very much about 'em." "You wouldn't know much about em?" "•Nope. I don't bother with details no more. The government's got a brigadier general, a retired laval officer, and a couple of pro- 'essors here. They've taken all the responsibility off my shoulders." "rfave you had any drought this season?" "Oh, shucks! We don't have to worry about droughts no more." "You don't?" "Nope. The Brain Trust takes care of that. Whenever there's >een a dry spell and we need rain, T Just phone the local political eader, and he telephones Roose- relt, who tells the Brain.

ALMA WH1TAKER, ciever west-' ** ern movie critic, throws an Interesting feminine sidelight oh, the subject of our own last week's discussion—"shady ladies" of the current films. It seems there was a near-riot in Hollywood the other day, when the producers of The Worst Woman in Paris announced that they needed a first-class siren to play the leading role. The list of applications for the Job looked like a cinema social register. Miss Whitaker points out that this new type of siren must be beautiful, expensive, noble, intelligent, sacrificing—almost all the virtues which a lew years ago only wives were expected to possess. In other words—and to speak plainly -'-the movies.-'are raising the social status of vampires and prostitutes to a place where poor, struggling, Hard-Workihg'^ wives are having a terrible time of It. v All of which is most alarming— and unusual. One would have ev- pebted that, with the depression, expensive sirens would have become as rare as Cadillacs and Rolls-Royces. Instead the merry- go-round of shady-lady pictures continues; and the funny part of it Is that our best actresses are clamoring for the roles. Nobody wants to play the part of dutiful, virtuous wife. Every Ruth Chat- ;erton and Barbara Stanwyck on the Coast wants to portray the glamorous, scintillating, alluring !933-model vampire. The situation s becoming serious. We feel entirely Incapable of re- iewing Baby Face, latest Barbara Stanwyck nightmare, so will en;rust ourself to a feminine critic, Mae Tinee, who pronounces it a real "menace." Here is the most complete textbook on prostitution who have strong stomachs may get a little Rudy Vallee crooning. And there is Little Marie, child singer even more trying than Rudy. If such a thing were possible. Burns arid Allen are also there with their bag of tricks, slightly moth- eaten. And Pangburn, stuttering, hesitating, Is introduced for no good reason at all. Stoopnaddle and Budd, with their asinine inventions, have a brief curtain call, and a lot of tragedy is contributed by Lugosi and Breese, whoever these distinguished tragedians are. Stuart Erwln has a part, as have many others. But when you get all through with this 16-course dinner, you are so full that you don't care who was there or what they did. A lively chorus of rather good- looking ladies puts on a cellophane dance which is spectacular .and provides the producers with an opportunity to give out the erroneous impression that this is a musical comedy. Of special importance is the appearance of the first Walt Disney technicolor cartoon of the SWIMMING BADGES CONFERRED ON 13 Thirteen girls qualified for Ret!
