Postof flees. year *2.50 SHORTENING HOURS IS NOT THE BASI€ NIRA IDEA One of this paper's exchanges is What Its name Implies, a democratic organ; a good one too, one ol the best anywhere in the country field. The editor is county democratic charman and was democratic congressional candidate in -Ms district last fall. His wife- has Jdst been appointed postmistress. Naturally and commendably the gentleman is strongly for the whole' program of the administration at Washington. He is for NIRA, and -lw runs the NRA emblem on both ears of his newspaper's first page. -On the editorial page last week he .set out his NRA shop schedule. This editor's program lays the 'Whole stress on hours. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday his shop hours will be 9 a. m. to 6 p. m.; on Thursday, 9 a. m. till noon; on Saturday, 9 a. m. to 3 .ji- m. This is 40 hours. The edi- "tpr says the shop force has heretofore worked SO to 60 hours. Nothing is said about hiring new help except this: "The new deal will .probably add another worker to •our payroll. "We hope that business will be such that we can do this. It will be a pleasure." It seems to us that this editor has completedly failed to get the'idea behind NIRA. He seems to think that he has complied with NIRA by reducing : his shop, hours to 40 [this is what is proposed in the printers' code,;. the code "has not yet been,,accepted by NRA, and" "Friday's papersifi'eported that Vi it might not be%riless the hours are reduced to 35, which is the NRA blanket proposal for factory workers]. But merely reducing hours to 40 or.any :other figure below 52 is not «»eetlniip?the NRA program. This I»rogranf''contemplat9s that ail business houses shall keep open at least 52 hours unless their hours " have heretofore been fewer. Thus Jf this editor's shop has heretofore been open 50 hours, NRA ex- .Uects It to continue to be aoen the same number of hours. The editor can reduce only in the event that he has been keeping open more than 52 hours, and then only to 52 hours. The NIRA idea is not the mere' reduction of hours; it is the employment of new and additional help. Anyone who misses that misses the notnt entirely. The objective of NIRA and NRA is to put this country's 11,000,000 unemployed back to work. You can't do that Just by shortening the hours of labor already employed. 'Shortening the hours of labor now employed is not the end in this NIRA drive, but the means to an end. towit the em- -ployment of more labor. To hold •otherwise is to make the tail wag the dog. "NTRA assumes that there is now 62 bours of work a wfiek for the editor's shop force to do — or whatever fewnr number of hours,, If any fewer, the force has heretofore been working. The idea is to reduce the hours nf prp=ent em- ployes to 40 Tor 35 if NRA insists on if], and thus compel thn editor to hire additional help to do 'the rest of the work that it has been t.akine a totfl of 52 hours to 43o. The editor will thus be do- Ing his nart to reduce unemployment, and ho cannot do so in any other way. Incidentally, let it be noted, the editor cannot pay his present force less for 40 for 351 hours than It has bfien paying for whatever number of imurs the men have been working. If he has been paying higher than the minimum, as has T>een the oase in most newspaper •shons, he must continue to do so. If lie has bpen paving less, he must Talse to the minimum. He is even expected to increase wages while at the same time reducing hours. When the editor says the new •deal will nrobably add another •worker to his payroll, and adds the "hope that business will be such that this can be done, he is unconsciously dfinyine the whale theory of NIRA. The old economics taught that business must pick up before new labor could be emnloyed. NIRA'S theorv is directly the opposite: unemployed labor must be •put to work to create business pick-up. This has been pointed out again and again in NIRA interpretations. The editor says he has been operating in the red, which, boiled down, means that ha is not at present financially able to employ more •help. Here we must confess, the editor has us up a stump. Frankly we do not khow what an employer in that fix is to do. In all the miles of newspaper NIRA and NRA news and comment which jbftve appeared we have not noted V *oh'e""w6rd throwing light on that situation. It seems, on the contrary, to be assumed blandly that any employer cap hire more help merely if he wants to. Yet there must be hundreds of thousands of Email employers to whom laying present help off at 35 or 40 hours with no diminution of pay, and hiring additional help, would mean Bankruptcy. "We desire to make it plain in conclusion that in this editorial the editor in Question serves more- iy as a concrete example. We know well that the high-minded gentleman who publishes the newspaper Is loyal to NIRA to the limit and intends to do everything within his power to cooperate with NRA. But we have for some weeks been noting a rather general failure among north lowa.emnloyers, of all kinds to understand that the question of hours is not at all the heart of NIRA. and we think it is time to make the real object plain ietore General Johnson resorts to socks on the nose in these parts to put the Idea across. We thick also that what small -employers such as we have in Northern Iowa are up against m loyal cooperation to carry out-this great drive for the benefit of all ought to be understood by the public to the end that it may do its part by seeing that such employers are supported with the trade that will enable them to carry on. THE FLIGHT OF CAPITAL AND WHAT IT MEANS The Washington newspaper correspondents, the financial publications, and other Sources of information agree that in the last few months there has been a considerable flight of capital from this country to foreign countries. How great it has been no one knows, but some experts estimate it as high as a half billion. The movement is still going on with no letup in sight. Jt is not easy for people in the mid-west, far from the financial marts and the ports of trade, to understand this. Indeed most of us *are utterly ignorant of it and dismiss stories about it in the' newspapers with a glance. It has to be done in a roundabout way, for gold cannot be shipped, even if'it were to be had, and the banks have been forbidden to sell foreign exchange when there is reason to suspect that the buyer is merely trying to get his money out of the country. The method that is being used, is to ship goods out of the country and then instead of bringing the money home, as is ordinarily done, leave it on deposit in a foreign bank in a country which is still on the gold standard. Then if this country deflates the dollar by reducing the gold content, the American depositors in the foreign banks will reap a great profit by using their money to buy up exchange on America at the deflated price. If, for example, the gold content of the dollar is reduced 60 per cent they will double their holdings in terms of the American dollar. The government has not yet The Colyum Let's JTot be too D—4 I ' HKN MY FATHER, lay dying ;four and a half years ago 1 devoted the Colyum to him. I wish now to do the same for my mother. It is not that my father and mothe* were more worthy than the parerits of others. It is only that I have the memories about by own that I cannot have of others; and in recalling what might be considered trivialities I am, in a way, symbolizing the recollections that everyone has at a time when a loved parent has been Jald away- AM THE ELDEST in the family, and I was born when my mother Was still very young for a mother, according to present-day standards. She was just past 18. I have only dinv remembrance of our'life in New York, for we came to Iowa When I was five. I canno" visualize my mother as.a young woman. I suppose no child can. An old tintype shows her with red cheeks. I look at naturally rose-cheeked young-women now and wonder:" was my mother ever like that? I know she was, long after I was born, but I have no memory of it. J .RECAUL HER on two occasions '•In my babyhood. My father cahlfe iri one day and began tossing me up and catching me as I came jdown. : It was great fun for the father and me, but not for mother. Father was roundly scolded. The other time was my mother's alarm when a chisel glanced and severed an artery in Father's wrist. M found a to stop this practice, and it is doubted that a practicable way can be discovered.

There is nothing new about flights of capital like this. They always occur when the money ot a country depreciates. The same thing happened in France a few years ago when the franc was depreciating. "When the depreciation has been 2-BALl FOURSOME TOURNEUT GOLF A two-ball foursome was played Sunday at the Algotia Country club in. which women were paired with men players. In a two-ball game, first one partner hits the flail, then the other the same ball, and two such partners make up a foursome. iLbw score fur the round* was made by Mrs. R. H.

C Y MOTHER had early been orphaned of her father, who went away to war and was sent home a corpse. 'She had brothers and sisters, but they are all gone There were four 1 babies when she arid fatker came west. .Any mother who has reared a family that came so quickly knows what that meant to my mother. Her days were full to overflowing, and often her nights too. But 1 do not recall that she ever complained of her hard lot. CH:E>HAD THE vitality of youth Sf'Kthen. She even grew stout, as .

For when there is an unusual demand for exchange on any country the demand makes the price rise, and to that extent upsets the stabilization. The result is that foreigners who want to buy our goods have to pay a high price in their own currency for our money with which to pay toy the goods, and they turn away from.us and buy where they can get 'the; money cheaper. Our readers can get the idea, if they will consider the draft fees charged by our banks. Suppose that'- instead of having a set- schedule the banks varied their charges~ac- : cording to the demand, which.'}is the case in the foreign exchange markets. When the demand was] low you could, say, buy a $10 draft: on Chicago for lOc, but when it was high you had to pay a dollar. What would you do, when it was a dollar, if you found that you could buy a draft on Des Moines for only lOc to pay for the same goods bought there? Naturally you would buy at Des Moines, and in the same way the Frenchman or other foreigner will not buy from us when exchange in our money makes our goods cost him more than he can buy the same goods for in some other country whose money is not so high priced. . , , what she had J>een in her prime. BABIES ARRIVED after .we came to Iowa, and finally v lx ' two boys and f °" r lived the normal life of s . uch : a family. AH mothers are slaves There were the daily meals th» g ' l, he bjg weekly washings, h™, i* ' other household tasks. Heaviest burden of all was the never-ending care of the children in health and sickness. Only a mother knows how one is tied down by such a re- sponsibUity. ' The mothers of 50 years ago hardly knew what vacations meant. There were none of v-rf P^^-aay conveniences of housekeeping. The lamps had to be trimmed and filled, the globes washed; the cream had tl be churned; bread had to be baked in ones own oven; there were no power washers.

NOT Even Deed in Rhyme [St. Louis Republic.] A deed for the conveyance of a piece of land that is one greatest legal curiosities of in the the world was drawn in 1881 by J. Henry-Shaw, a lawyer at Beardstown, 111. The curio complies with every requirement of the law and has more than once been declared by the courts of that state to be entirely valid. It reads as follows: I, J. Henry Shaw, the grantor herein, Who live at Beardstown, the county within, For seven hundred dollars, to me paid today By Charles B, Wyman, do sell and convey Lot two (2) in block forty (40), said county and town, Where Illinois river flows placidly down, And warrant the title forever and aye, Waiving -homestead and mansion to both goodbye, And pledging this deed is valid by law. I add here my signature, J. Henry Shaw. (Seal.) Dated July 25, 1881. I, Sylvester Enimons, who live at Beardstown, A justice of peace of fame and renown, Of the county of Cass, in Illinois state, Do certify here that on the same date One J. Henry Shaw to me did make known That the above deed and name were his own, And he stated he sealed and delivered the same Voluntarily, freely, and never would claim His homestead tiierein; but, left all alone, Turned his face to the street and his back to his home.

IN THE eighties my mother had typhoid fever. I <Iont think I would remember it except for the fact that my father grew so worried that I could not but notice it. Happily she recovered. Until old age came on she was never sick otherwise except as the. result of babies and operations. f DO,:NOT KNOW how mother felt as one by one her children slipped away to homes of their own.. Children are not mindful of the feelings of their parents on such occasions. Quite naturally their thoughts are centered on their own doings. But I am sure that loneliness occasionally tugged at mother's heart. As long as she was able it was her greatest delight to gather the family around her again and exhaust herself with the preparation of a big dinner You who read this will know that she was typical in that. It's a way that mothers have, your mother as much as mine, fUfOTHER WAS GREGARIOUS J-'- 1 She liked people. Everywhere she lived she drew about her a lit- 'tle circle of fast friends.

They expected to return today. •Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Haggard, Mr. and Mrs- C. B.

William Pestotnik, who recently announced his annual contest in which coal was to be given away, has voluntarily cancelled it as possible interference with the "fair competition" provision of the NRA code.

After a picnic supper, a business meeting vas held under the trees, truck lares being used for lighting purposes, A program followed the business meeting, and John Wheelock told of his recent trip into old and New Mexico. The C. L- Blileys spent last week at Spirit Lake, and had as guests Mr. and Mrs. Algot Carlson, Los Angeles and their daughter Mary, who arrived last week Monday. Mrs. Bliley and the children accompanied the Carlspns to Des Moines to attend a family reunion, and Mr. Bliley will go after his family this week-end. A Reding family reunion was held at the fairgrounds Sunday, and in the afternoon the single men played ball against the married men, the former winning, 32-15. More than 100 members of R EPORTERS AND >P$JN'''scratch- ers ought to come, under the NRA reduction of working hour schedules whether they do or not. But since the talkies, like Tennyson's brook, keep babbling;on, despite General Johnson, hot\ weather, and ennui, the best we 'can do for .good customers during the rest bt the summer Is to shorten the SUBSTANCE of thifs .' Citadel of Criticism. And after our week's vacation the task is momentous. We/tried to shift responsibility over to the wife, but she, Woman-like, passed the "buck" right back, and here we are, pounding the dusty keys again. But brevity will be the soul of this column. Another Language is notable only because the .cast Includes the versatile Helen Hayes, than whom the screen has no more earnest and convincing, actress. She . grappres bravely with a difficult rule, made more trying , 1 by> the .miscast .(Robert Montgomery, who over-plays even his bridegroom part in the opening scenes. The plot .resembles The Sliver Cord and shows what might happen to a young bride when she marries a mother-loved son. The late Louise Closser Hale does not give her Vale the 'exacting portrayal which we recently noted in Helen Hope Crews, but the situation is somewhat different, and perhaps a too close comparison is not Justified. Several new if aces appear in the rather pretentious cast, and their work is uniformly good. The photography is mediocre for so recent a release, and the sound is hazy and difficult to understand • in some places. Another Language fails to live up to the reputation the stage production established.. W 'HEN THE 'DEVIL'S IN LOVE, all hell goes a ' poppiri'—that is, if you are able to determine just who the devil the devil is. This is one of those tricky. African pictures which try to show the demor- alizing ettect of the tr«lc» OB men's morals. Convicted of murdering 'an overbearing superior officer, Victor Jory, ot the Foreign (Legion, buries hlmse f in Zantba, wherever that is, He'.is a surgeon, ahd he ministers to the ailing in that far-off place. . Tiring of a brazen mistress, he meets a pure white girl O Young), who comes hither to her uncle, an aged, priest. He falls In love madly (it must be the .heat!) till he learns that the young woman IB about to marry a pal who ias befriended him. Thert, appar« ently in order to prolong thp pic- ;ure two or three reels, he does an. asinine thing-M-etase* to tell her why he is unable to press his suit. Finally he takes her backi tocher first lover, whom the Arabs, however, conveniently shoot, to the end that we may see the happy couple clasped in earih other's arms and swearing .everlasting fidelity. Trite enough, but somehow the superb acting of Victor Jory and David Manners lifts the show from mediocrity to a fairly entertaining and exciting production. The thins Is well cast, well staged, and pass^ ably plausible. The siren not only relinquishes her claims to our noble hero, but she even helps him and his sweetheart to make their escape. This is Just a'trifle off- form, 'but .perhaps there are'sacri- ficing ladles In the underworld too —-at least our .talkies seem to prove it. HUMOR Is another de-. V liberate "falsification of fact. It is billed and advertised as a lively,, sprightly muscial comedy, but it comes to us as an impossible, Improbable college story with only the monotonous crooning of Bing Crosby to suggest the musical setting.
