LAW AND WHAT ISN'T AS REGARDS NIRA In Saturday's Des Moines Register Mark Sullivan drew an illuminating distinction between NIRA and its operation on the one hand «nd the Emergency Unemployment Drive on the other. The Emergency Unemployment •Drive is the presidential agreement 1»lan. This Is the plan which is •now causing so much discussion, 9iut many, perhaps most, people «re confusing it with, the act of Congress known as the National Industrial Recovery Act, or, «hort, NIRA. propitious. In that event he will be a strong candidate in the primary, and, If nominated, at the election. His defeat for governor would, however, work against him. As a rule voters do not take to a candidate once thrown Into the political discard. This would be true also in Hammlll's case. Politically acute and more cautious than Hammill, Turner will take 1 this handicap into consideration and will not seek the nomination unless conditions are tempting. That Governor Hammill will have real strength is also not to be denied. His record as governor •aligned him with Interests which consider htm "safe." He has a sizeable following, too, among the proletariat, and he Is politically adept. Among progressive republicans Turner would, however, have a decided edge. 'It is to be noted that in a contest between Senator Dickinson and the governors the three would in one respect be on pretty even terms. They would all be handicapped by loss of the power of patronage. Regardless of other possible candidates, probably the best thing politically that could happen for Senator Dickinson would be to have Hammill and 1 Turner both'in the primary contest. They would tend to kill each other off. Either of the governors alone would be a formidable opponent if present political conditions remain static. For, being now out of office, they j or are exempt from responsibility, whereas Senator Dickinson, being stlil in office, must labor under the The presidential agreement plan odium which, whether just or un- is not in the law, and it has no)just, is always heaped upon rep-legal standing whatever under t*HRA- It has no legal standing (otherwise unless it could be enforced under the ordinary law of contracts, which is doubtful, to say the least. For failure to enter into « presidential agreement there is yw statutory penalty. As General Johnson said, "There is no force 3»ere except conscience and public "opinion." The only reliance against lailure to sign or failure to observe the agreement if signed is •the non-intercourse-in - patronage 3>olicy which NRA has asked to 1 fmblic to invoke against non-coop- *rators. The presidential agreement plan is an after-thought devised to cpeed up nation-wide action because industries were taking too long to adopt codes, and it will expire December 31. It is the -codes that will have legal standing under NIRA and can be enforced l»y lawful penalties. Each industry is to write its own code, subject to presidential approval. If any industry fails to adopt a code, the president is authorized to write -»ne and compel violators to live up to it. A peculiarity of the code system is that when recognized representatives of an industry- have adopted a. code, and it has been approved l»y the president, everyone engaged 3n that industry must obey it whether or not he had any voice in taaking it. This is of tremendous •Importance. It forces independents to come in willy-nilly. Henry iFord, for example, has never Joined ^automobile trade associations, bul ^representatives of the automobile industry have submitted a code in •which he had no say, and if the president approves it he will nev- «rtheless have to observe it. Henry Ford can, presumably .protect himself, but whether the small fry industrialists can do so Wider codes written by the big fry «r will, as promised, be protectec effectively by NRA, remains to be Seen. The big fry will inevitably write codes their own way. What happens is illustrated in the job printing line. There is an association o£ Job printers called the United Typo- Ihetae of America- The membership consists mostly of city printers in the upper bracket; hardly any country printers. Yet it wrote a code for the Job printing industry as a whole and steam-rolled •country print-shop opposition. The -thing was so brazenly done that 'the country printers walked out en masse and wrote a code of their own. The result is still undecided. That case illustrates what Is likely to happen in the case of all industries j n which both big and little fry are represented. But 6nC6 » big fry code has been approved the little fry will have to ob- JBerve it, Mr. Sullivan made one assertion there may be some doubt about. Congress, he said, can legislate in this case only as regards industry doing an interstate business, which is true. Therefore, he "Went on, the law does not apply to establishments doing business entirely within the limits of any *tate. That Is also true. But the resentatives of a party temporarily 'in bad" with the people. Much water must, however, run under state and national political bridges between now and 1936, and vhat will happen in the case of he senatorship is purely specula- ive at this time. A great deal depends on national political developments. If Roosevelt falls out of avor as Hoover did, the repercus- i-ions in Iowa will be likely to favor Senator Dickinson. In fact any change of political sentiment will oe apt to react in his interest; and, politically speaking, a lot can happen in three years, as has often jeen demonstrated. Timely Topics •Despite all efforts to increase money in circulation, the figures go down instead of up, according to the monthly statements of the treasury. On February 28 the total was $6,545,067,961; on June 30 $5,720,764,384. This is a loss of more than 834 millions. Yet it is no fault of the administration. 'Disturbed winter financial required conditions banks to last keep more money on hand than usual and now that they are no longer under panic pressure the excess has been turned back to the treas ury and cancelled. The total out standing June 30 this year wa only $25,000,000 more than at the same time a year ago- Ira iNichoIs, of the Iowa Fall Citizen, says his paper has been for Roosevelt, still is, and expect to continue to be. "He has trie< to do something," says Mr. iNich ols, "and if the NRA effort fail we shall be for Roosevelt." Which about sums up the case for a grea many people regardless of .party. The Advance believes the NRA plan will work if every employer who can do so will get behind it and help make it work. But it cannot be done merely by shortening hours and hiring no new help. The object of this drive is to put the unemployecl back to work, and the way to do it under present circumstances is to shorten the hours of At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T.

Opinions of Editors A Voice for Governor Herring. Waverly Democrat — There is no reason, except the worst kind of partisanship, why Governor be the present time there is nothing to assure the Republicans that he can be defeated. He has kept his campaign promises of tax reduction, and tax revision wilT come. A RECENT SOJOURN at the! <* Twin Cities disclosed the ather startling fact that out of ozens of talkies exhibited there wasn't a single outstanding pro- uctlon we had not previously seen ,t ( the Call- Never had the super- orlty of our local playhouse been o clearly demonstrated. We scan- led the news sheets of both Minne- ipolis and St. Paul in an honest ffort to attend a new performance, nit all In vain. Hold Your Man vas being featured in both cities n the largest theater, and this, •ou will recall, was the Fourth of uly show at.the Call. All of which proves again a fact we are all often prone to overlook, hat patrons of the Call are in the metropolitan" class when it conies o the cinema. And while we are m that subject let us express what we believe is the consensus of opin- on around these parts, namely, hat Manager Rice is an eXcep- ional showman. He is 1 again demoting all his time to the Call, and he enthusiastic crowds which have been thronging the lobby of late are mute evidence that Kossuth heater-goers are quick to appre- iate personal service. Mr. Rice's genial and pleasant greetings as one enters and leaves the Call would be an asset to any business. niTE MISSED Mama Loves Papa • V (wasn't it Papa Loves Mama n the funnies?) at the Call Sunday night, so we are unable to give his supposedly trifling taklie its ust (or unjust) dues. I iLoved You Wednesday, next in order, was previewed some weeks ago, but im- iressions at this time are rather lazy. The cast included Elissa -andi, Warner Baxter, and Victor Jory, as we remember it. We wish Miss Landi were not so llusive. In The Sign of the Cross, she did the pure virginal type of Jhristian Martyr; in Warrior's Husband she portrayed a difficult comedy-satirical role; and now we see her in a sophisticated society drama as first the mistress of Vic;or Jory (a married man) and later, as a purified woman. - ready !or the sacred office of matrimony. No wonder customers are mysti- Eied. Where are we to catalog this jeautiful, alluring Austrian beauty^ I Love You Wednesday included a rather exotic ballet for no good reason except to bolster up the plot when it sagged a trifle towards the middle of the picture It was daringly conceived anc beautifully executed, but seemedi a little out of place in the action ol the show- When we pre-viewed I Loved You Wednesday, in what ex hibitors call a "cold house," we reserved judgment till we coult get an audience-reaction. Now that we missed it altogether, our review seems colorless and medi ocre. PROSPERITY RETURNED to thi * Call with a bang when good old Marie Dressier and Wallace Beery brought Tugboat Annie to the screen. It looked like the gold en days of 1929 to see that long line of customers stretching out in to the street after the second show And how the folks did enjoy it! The plot is patterned directly at ter Marie's and Wallace's forme success, Bill and Min, with a sordid water-front background, also an improbability which makes it almost a fairy tale. But homely, sincere, hard-working Marie Dressier gives to her role every delicate shading of pathos, while big, blundering, stupid Wallace Beery feeds her the laughs and sobs which are the stock in trade of this inimitable pair. Not being a reader of that bible of American Babbitry, the Saturday Evening Post, we have never followed the stories of the waterfront of which the present production is a good sample. We left soon after the second reel, when it was all too apparent Alex would bring glory to his parents, but returned to our seat just in time to see the noble, half-inebriated father "save the ship."

By Donald P. DeweL The denouement of a halt-crazed prospector** get-rlohl-quick scheme, and memories of a "town" named Ashuelot, platted in Kossuth county but which grew only in the prospector's mind, were recalled one day last week, when a yellowed, . dust-covtered petition dated 1888 was found by (District Court Clerk E. J.-Mc Evoy in his office at the courthouse. Ashuelot was platted in July, 1858, by a picturesque character named Brizee, who drew lithograph plats showing a flourishing town on the banks of the "mighty" upper Des Moines river with the Intention of interesting eastern investors. The scheme never succeeded,-and and in 1888, W. H. Nycum, in the petition found last week, asked that the townslte be abandoned. Nycum was then the owner of the land on which • the townsite was located. Ingham Tells About It. In a Harvey Ingham historical booklet about early Kossuth entitled "Three Towns," a synopsis from a newspaper account of the filing of Nycum's abandment petition, as follows: "For some weeks prior to court a very modest notice adorned some of the public places of town, tion, appears, as follows: " 'To all whom It my concern: Notice is hereby given that on the 6th day of March the undersigned petitioner will present to the dls- alt was a dollaft • "Just what the object of the city was does h6t appear, It was certainty a foreign speculation, but nothing seems to have crime pt it.

FIGHT FOK SE3VA- T.OK IN 1936 (Looking a long way forward to the elections of 1936, a good many Newspapers of the state have com- anented on chances that Governors Hammill and Turner may be candidates in the republican primaries against Senator Dickinson in 1936. Editor G. A. Nichols, of the Es- Iherville Vindicator & Republican, expressed the opinion last week that Dickinson would win in such A contest, but predicted that his a-eal battle would be fought in the tall, if the democrats name a Worthwhile candidate- There is not much doubt that Governor Hammill cherishes the •ambition. Governor Turner has been Jiolitically mum since he retired from office to run his farms, and te has denied rumors that he was considering candidacy for office. His name has been used Jn talk of candidacy for both the gubernatorial nomination and the congressional nomination in his district It is not to be denied that Governor Turner will probably enter tfce rfce for senator if he is then •free to do so and conditions seem Oh, He's a Democrat Now. lEsthervllle Daily News— The republicans are trying to figure out who is the man to beat Governor Herring for re-election. It's funny none of them have thought of Mr. Brookhart. Editor Jaqua for Dickinson, 'Humboldt Independent — It is stated that John Hammill and former governor Dan Turner will be candidates for senate against in 1936. The editor of this paper has a deep friendship for Senator Dickinson—a stronger friendship than he has had for Hammill or Turner. the United States Senator Dickinson, It Does Look Inconvenient. Eagle Grove Eagle Official figures reveal that the federal revenue from 3.2 beer was '$11,500,000 in May and $13,750,000 in June; no doubt still more in July.

T HE CINEMA-EDITOR of the current New Yorker voices an opinion which we also have secretly harbored since we saw the first colored Walt Disney cartoon comedy, called the Three 'Little Pigs, namely, that there ought to be an entire Walt Disney program once in a while. We thought the idea so low-brow that we hesitated to express it In print, but since the sophisticated New Yorker trails in the same gutter—well, we really can't object to this quality of company. There is something restful, cheerful, and altogether soothing about this type of entertainment. •Editor Dewel (our superior officer) prefers the noisy, tempestuous news-reels—has often confided to us his secret longings for a full two-hours of this sort of thing. And so, as we have remarked before, tastes differ, which makes this old world an interesting place on which to spend a few of humanity's million or trillion years We have urged Manager Rice to hurry along some more of these colored cartoons, and he has accommodatingly signed up for a series to begin in September. Then we lowbrows may revel in the Three Bears, Little 'Red Riding Hood, and other fairy tales we are supposed to have outgrown 30 or 40 years ago. •Burt, Aug. 22—The Leonard the M; £ St. L. be extended to Estherville, but the local agent knew nothing of 'it.

Ringsted - Algona Golf Hit by Rain Eighteen Ringsted golfers came to Algona Sunday afternoon to take part in a tournament with members of the Algona Country club.

" To nine out of ten of those who saw the notice probably no idea of its meaning was conveyed, To .the early settlers, however, the name of Ashuelot recalled a whole chapter of history and awoke many memories of the prospective city of the west, which, by decision of the court, will soon return, with its parks and wharves and steamboat landings, to good ordinary pasture 'land, while Its romantic name will be remembered with the things of the past "Ashuelot was platted In July 1858, by one of the most striking characters who ever landed in Kossuth. Geroge W. Brizee was at that time an alderman .from Chicago. What his idea in starting a city was is a mystery, but whatever it was he arrived with that intent full of whisky, loaded with revolvers and bowie knives, and announced that he was trying to find the 'd—dest, meanest, poorest and most worthless piece of land in the county to build a city on. Located In Portland Township. "The north end of the county was then absolutely devoid of settlement, and into that section Brizee struck. After a week he returned, with his place chosen on the north half of the section John Chapin's farm Is now on, in Portland township; a fine piece of land, as it happened. "This he platted, and then went away. In a few weeks he came back with some men to start his city, and as W, H. Ingham's was the last house north he arrived there just at night. The men had evidently all been drinking hard and driving fast, and as they crossed a bridge they had Jolted a box of whiskey .bottles which took up most of the wagon and had broken them all. • "The .-whisky had : soaked the road,' but some was still dripping from the box. When Brizee saw what had happened, with a great oath he jumped for the box and^ putting his mouth to the leak, held on till the last drop had run out. Log Houses Built. "Brizee and his men spent some time on the new townsite and put up three or four log houses. These were later hauled off for firewood. After a short time, however, Brizee left, and he was never seen in the county again.
