MIRA AND THE GENTLEMEN OP THE PRESS In the adjoining column we are -reprinting a few paragraphs concerning Nira taken from weekly .exchanges. That most of them are :somowhat critical is no fault of wurs. We were looking for both •favorable and unfavorable comment intending to choose equally. "What We present is as representative of *entiment among our exchanges as could find. The newspapers are probably Tfsomewhat prejudiced by personal Considerations. In such communities as ours, newspaper plants and t)ther small factories are hard hit 4>y Nira, much more so than any other class of business. They employ skilled labor. Most weekly ^newspaper publishers cannot do the mechanical work they hire done, -even if there were time for it. They jnever knew how or they have lost 'the skill through disuse. In most other lines of endeavor •in farming communities the proprietor is as familiar with operations as any employe or more so. "The average merchant, for example, can do the work of any clerk. "The newspaper business is really two lines of endeavor Joined together yet separate. The editor and the reporters know the editor- :5al and news end, though they may •not know the printer's case. The •printer knows the mechanical end, tout as a rule does not know the ^editorial and news end. The two lines are as far apart as the poles worse fix than before, for inflation will have raised the price of every thing he has to buy. > The lesson in this is plain.

(Recently ..„ made a speech in which he pointed out the dangers of inflation without control of production. Somehow what he said about inflation got about, but its connection with production control was lost sight of, and Mr. Wallace came in for an avalanche of criticism and charges that he was not consistent with his record. This, as Wallaces' Farmer points out, was unjustified. Mr. Wallace is still for controlled inflation, tout only, as has always been the case, with controlled production as a necessary corollary. Of course it .would be possible for the farmer to increase prices by controlling production without inflation. What he wants inflation in addition for is to create greater demand and thus support higher production than would be possible without it. »v JJ^iOllti Ai\J»T**»V* (»A1V1 AjFWVlO*""- 1 *» *™« to banks Jr. must hold your attention he Timely Topics It is reported that E.

They have hired 3io new help. The test as regards Nira is new and additional help. ^Any business establishment which cannot meet that test is outside no matter what emblems it floats. Many lines of business would not foe hit hard even if they did everything required. Farmers are the largest class of the population in a state like Iowa, yet they are asked to sacrifice nothing. All they are asked to do is to boycott business >tnen who do not sign up. General ,.Johnson may deny that word, but it is the word just the same. Fortunately for non-cooperators, the farmers have hardly given a thought to the boycotting game. They don't give a hoot for anything except what is being done to or f.<jr them—in which they are "precisely like the rest of us. The lawyers, the doctors, the dentists, the preachers and other professional nien are tapped only lightly by Nira, if at all. Nira means nothing to one-man establishments or men who are retired. When you stop to figure it out it •means much to only a small fraction of the population in a farming state like Iowa, and that the very element which has been hit hard- «st toy the depression, principally the small manufacturers who could not remain in business without skilled labor. Small wonder, then,' that the publishers of weekly newspapers have found it difficult to grow enthusiastic over Nira. 'By far the most pf them have found the going hard in the extreme during the last tour years. Many have been hanging on only by their eyelashes To them Nira is no joke but a grim sacrifice which may mean bankruptcy. They can scarcely be Warned for some feeling of being picked upon as they look about and see how few in their communities are in the same boat. SECRETARY" WALLACE'S POSITION ON' INFLATION What money cranks usually overlook is that money is not the only thing which influences prices. Many things enter into prices; so many, so various, so involved, that it takes experts to assess them; and at that no infallible expert has *ver been found. Chief among the other things are credit and supply and demand. For the purposes of this discussion let «s confine ourselves to supply and demand. By demand we mean ability and will to buy. Now what will inflation of mon- «y do for farmers? The answer it is expected to make pay- g the governor for having ialll - ered it. The cost is said to be upwards of $40,000, or almost two- thirds of the much condemned salary grab. The pressure for inflation on President Roosevelt is said to be enormous. Already he can visualize what is sure to happen once he yields to it. For the vice of inflation is that as soon as the effects -——- -•• MAW c*ijji wctii UIJL i/ne addict must have another. You can read about it, if you like, in the history of the greenbacks. When Secretary Hyde was head of the agricultural department Editor Wallace criticised him without mercy. Now that Mr. Wallace is secretary, he is finding out what it means to have captious critics firing at him from ambush, it's a rare chicken that doesn't come home to roost. by raising is ment of debts easier their prices. We have already had some inflation of that kind, resulting from Joreign depreciation of the dollar. We see it in increased prices of *arm products. But supply and demand has cut some figure too, as the result of decreased crops due to drought.

Yes, It Was Pretty Sarcastic. Humboldt Independent—One sar- :astic editor said recently: The federal Reserve bank was going to end bank failures; the league of nations was going to end war, the 18th amendment was going to end the hquor traffic; and the NBA is going to end the depression. What is Boycotting, Then? Eagle Grove Eagle—It would be amusing, if not so serious, the requirement of a pledge by NRA signers not to buy anything from those not signers of NRA and displaying the blue eagle at their place of business, and yet protesting no "boycotting" is suggested ; or required. There is natural wonder what must be Johnson's conception of boycotting.

'It follows that the effects of inflation of money in raising prices can be offset by increase in supply above the requirements of demand. Thus it is perfectly obvious that if you make the dollar cheaper and yet take no steps to control production, inflation may do nothing for the farmer.

H. C. SIMPLE PLOT and a background of stark realism make • «nrl r\ -ff!»i«4- wr. t- n *\i/t+11 l«A Vf\11 ATTENTION YOUNGSTERS This week 'Saturday (September 28) -we offer two prizes to the boy or girl (under 12 years) who writes the best movie re* view of ONE of the four features on the big program which Manager nice has scheduled. To the boy or girl -who wins first prize go five free theater tickets; second prize, three tickets. Get out your pencils and pn- pcr, write plainly, one side of paper and limit your review to about 160 to 200 words — no more. You may write about ANY ONE of the four features, which are a Buck Jones, beginning of n serial, Black Beauty, and a colore<l Walt. Disney cartoon, but NOT abouti all four in the same reriew. In case of a tie, duplicate prizes will be awarded. All manuscripts must be sent to T. II. C. care Kossuth County Advance, Algona, not later than Wednesday, September 27. It is a war story from start to finish, but entertaining none the less. We find Leslie, in the beginning, a model prisoner in a German camp. He is spokesman for the prisoners, and after an outbreak offers himself as guaranty of future peace and harmony. Into this picture breaks young Douglas, who has fallen in love with Howard's wife. Fairbanks dare not tell Howard his secret, and life in the prison camp with his pal becomes intolerable. When he escapes, however,- and leaves his coat behind, with a telltale letter, Howard discovers the perfidy. And then the plot "thickens," as they used. to say in the early 90's. Fairbanks is returned to prison as the result of some international hokus-pokus, because he is. suspected of raping and killing a German peasant girl. On the morning of the execution, Howard, who has n his possession a confession which would vindicate the suspect, ntercedes, and simultaneously jlans a mass outbreak and escape. This is successfully carried out, >ut Howard sacrifices his life. Fairbanks is now free to claim the vidow, and all's well, etc., etc. _iFrom this sketchy description, ittle of the charm and tenseness of ;his sordid drama is transmitted to ;he reader. It is an engrossing study of, first, war-time brutality and bestiality and, second, a searching delineation of human mssions when women enter the )icture. We often ponder, as we view screen sex-problems, how widely divergent are people's views and heir actual behavior. Have you ever asked yourself the important question, "What would I do under he same circumstances?" Or, hav- ng asked the question, have you ever awaited an answer. Try it on rourself sometime—honestly, fear- essly, truthfully. You might be surprised. TJ L. MENCKEN, in one of his -*- •*• delightfully satirical moments, once said that most of the nursery Jingles were immoral, because they taught a child disobedience, crime, and disrespect for law. 'Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son, Stole ] a Pig and Away He Ran," is an ex- ' ample. iPaddy, the Next Best Thing, similarly, shows the good which comes from lying. Every with the ... pert photography of Victor Milner, The Song of Songs rises far above • the mechanism of mere plot. It is Miss Dietrich's best portrayal since The Blue Angel. Metropolitan critics have been most unkind in dealing .with this talkie, most of their abuse being directed at Lionel Atwell. We found his characterization rather good, but disliked the listless and unemotional role contributed by Brian Aherne as sculptor and lover. A rather delicate situation for the screen is developed when Marlene poses nude before the sculptor, which is further intensified when the artist falls in love with his model. In a beautifully done scene we find him caressing his statue with more loving than useful hands, ibut the illusion remains in the minds of the audience that it is the girl, not the piece o£ marble who receives the touch. _ Marlene's transformation from a simple country maiden to a sophisticated woman of the world (in ten easy lessons) under the rich old Baron's tutelage is a piece of finished acting. But her biggest emotional scenes are those in which she maintains a quiet, dramatic reserve. We refer to the one at the Baron's table, when she is being exhibited before her erstwhile lover, and another in which she repulses the riding groom, who has fallen in love with her. In both it is the suggestion of idea rather than the execution which give Miss Dietrich her power. We are sorry, however, to see Marlene give way to a rash moment of carefree dancing on the turf, in the earlier sequences of the play. This sort of thing always strikes us as rather asinine. '.But she more than makes up for this by her comparison between love and the material elements of nature, in the same scene. It is only an actress with her intelligence and 1 emotional capacity who could portray the effect of earth, grass, trees, and sky in matters of.-the heart. QOODBYE AGAIN belongs to •'.• that, species of ,sprightly, sophisticated (some day we are going to invent a new word to take the place of this poor over-worked one) farces with which the legitimate stage is so overrun. The plot, of course, is concerned with muddled domestic relations. The cast includes Warren William, Joan Blondell, Genevieve Tobin and Hugh Herbert, with the last-named literally stealing the show. Mr Herbert as Mr. Wilson played the same role in the stage production and his sly yet utter stupidity make him easily the outstanding star of the cinema version. The plot has to do with an impressionistic married woman (Miss Tobin), who falls in love with a novelist (Mr. William). Her husband is a stogey, rather typical Homo American, probably ingenious enough in his office but hopelessly at sea in matters of Art. Mrs. Wilson compromises the novelist—or attempts to — while his watchful secretary (Joan Blondell), herself in love with him, bides her time. In the end she triumphs and the whole affair between the married woman and the famed writer is neatly glossed over, even by the husband, as simply an "episode." It is this nonchalant manner of overlooking irregularities in matrimonial relationships which sometimes makes us wonder what is the effect of our movies on the behavior of our younger genera- 6EOR6E ELMORE DIES; FUNERAL HELD TUESDAY more were conducted at the local Methodist church Tuesday by the Revs. J. 'E. Thompson and, G. W. iBone, Swea City, and burial was made in Riverview. In August, while Mr. Elmore, who was 78, was staying with his daughter, Mrs. Ira Bonnett, Algona, he was overcome with heat, fell, and broke his right hip. He was taken to a local hospital and died Sunday. Mrs, Elmore died in 1»24, and since then Mr. Elmore had lived with 'his children. The other children are: Mrs. (Floyd Lessey, Lucerne, Mo.; James M., Algona; Robert O., Winnebago, Minn.; Harry L., Swea City. Another daughter, Ida Jane Bonnett, of Lucas, died in 1&24. Mr. Elmore was born at New Market, Tenn., iSeptember 4, 185«, and married Dora Duncan in 1872. They moved from Tennessee to Fairfield in 1899, later lived at Lucas three years, and came to Algona in 1916. St. Joe Cardinals Lose Close Game to the Humriters St. Joe, Sept. 19—'Before the largest crowd of fans at a ball game at 'Livermore this season, the fast .Hum-OUters nosed out the St. Joe Cardinals, 2-d, Sunday. "Lefty" Cayou and A. Klein staged a neat, pitchers' duel from start to finish, Cayou allowing five hits and Klein seven. Livermore scored its two runs in the fifth and the sixth. Up to the fifth the Cardinals held a slim 1-0 lead. The game was played in the fast time of one hour and 35 minutes. The battery for St. Joe was Klein and E. Thul, and for Livermore Cayou and Torgerson. Father Theobald, of St. Joe, and Eugene Miles were umpires. Next Sunday the Cardinals will close the season by playing Bode at Bode. St. Joe nosed out Bode earlier in the season by one run, and iBpde is now out to even up the score. Rally Is Planned for Young People iLu Verne, Sept. 19—A Y. P. rally of the "Lutheran churches of Mallard, Fairville, West Bend, Whittemore, -and Lu Verne will be held Sunday at the local church beginning with a special sermon for young people at 10 o'clock preached ay the Rev. L. Wittenburg. At noon there will be a picnic lunch and [jrom one to five the elimination kittenball tournament will be played. At 5:30 the local society will serve a chicken dinner in the church basement and in the evening at 8 o'clock a program will be given with each society giving a one-act play or a pantomime. Around 300 are expected to be present. -*• . >ody lies, falsifies, evades the truth n one way or another, yet Paddy lomes to a blissfully happy ending n the arms of the stalwart Warner Baxtei 1 . And in the same breath we are 'orced to admit that this is one of .hose rare "wholesome" pictures ivhich we may recommend for the family. Or is it? Janet Gaynor, smiling roguishly and crying appealingly, romps :hrough this idyll of an Irish countryside with her usual air of virginal innocence. She is the younger of two sisters. The elder (Margaret Lindsay), has -engaged herself to Warner Baxter because of financial difficulties in which the father (Walter. Connolly) finds himself. When Paddy finds out that her sister is really in love with Jack Breen, she begins to cast a loving eye herself towards Warner, who las a yacht, a iRolls-jRoyce, and ots of "cush." We suspect that ier motives are not entirely disin- :erested.

The "shots" of the sea, flecked with tiny white-caps, probably represent the last word in andscape photo-painting. The around the manor and at combination for the camera lens. The music, too, is of high character. One song is sung by the opera star, Miss McCormick. Our old friend Fiska O'Hara takes the minor part of the country doctor. If you go to the talkies for relaxation and pure enjoyment, if the assumed grimaces of the minute Janet do not turn your stomach, in a word, if you are not critically inclined, Paddy, the Next Best Thing, offers a delightful evening's entertainment. It is also another picture which Manager Ricei shows his patrons before it is seen in almost any other theater in the country. '"pHE GLAMOROUS, alluring Mar•*• lene Dietrich, more fascinat* ing and more beautiful than ever, rises above the sordidness of a heavy, dramatically monotonous plot to give us an interesting character study of a woman who loves and sins, but loves not in vain. V-- , - ., _ _ „, . ' <w *"" JCa Joan Blondell, while she has her "moments" in Goodbye Again, fails to measure up to the requirements pf the role. She seldom seems real, in earnest, with the possible exception of the little scene in which she slaps Mr. Williams' face. (Hugh Herbert as Mr. Wilson, on the other hand, extracts from his part every ounce of character shading. He is an enigma. He seems so willing to overlook his wife's infatuation with Mr. Williams, but at the same time seems fully aware pf what is going on. His best line is his retort to the novelist, who is trying to explain that both he (Mr. Williams) and Mrs. Wilson have dual personalities: "I guess I'll take all four of me and go home"— and leads his wife out. Goodbye Again is a brand new release, and we witnessed it in the Chicago Theater only a week ago. CTORM AT DAYBREAK Just miss^ es being a truly great picture. We attended_ the performance a second time in order to "check up" on this failure of Director Richard Boleslavsky and a well-nigh per- perfect cast to register Just a good show instead Of a four-star production. The conclusion we arrived at was "too mueh atmosphere." The settings, the locale, the incidental action, combined with the tremendous pictorial quality of the photography, simply dwarfed the fragile, simple plot, so that even in the hands of a trio as illustrious as Kay Francis, Nils Asther, and Walter Huston the thing left you bewildered, stunned, "up-in-the-air." The plot, what there is of it, is the old, old story of love, turning up unexpectedly in the lives of two men and one woman (which, ray children, is the ancient triangle) and ending, melodramatically, in the death of the unnecessary one. This is the chief fault in our talkies—that things always work out so smoothly to the ultimate happiness of those who have discovered the "grande passion." Oh well, you go to the movies to see some of your impossible dreams come true —what are you kicking about? F\UE TO THE FACT that the *-* movie column was crowded out last week, the reviews this week must necessarily be brief, so it is with genuine regret that we pare down The Mayor of Hell to mere mention. Not that it is a great picture, but the acting of the 500 youngsters who represent reformatory inmates is worth special mention. Especially appealing is Frankie Darro's performance,, a truly masterly contribution to Juvenile screen dramatics. James Cagney was ideally cast, and Dudley Bid Editions for Clay County Fair The county fair editions of the Spencer papers, always the envy and despair of newspaper publishers in other counties, came out last week, the Reporter with 52 pages and the News-Herald with a main section of eight pages and five tabloid sections of 16 pages each. The fair opened Tuesday with a parade of school children. It was estimated beforehand that 3,000 head of livestock would be shown. Leo C •Dailey, former Algonian, is secretary of the fair. ^ Slot Machine Rifled. Titonka, Sept. 19-3^-iday night several men broke into Wilson's Cafe through the front door.
