A BIT OF THE HISTORY OF THE GREENBACK It was interesting to observe in -tost week's Washington news that southern cotton farmers had sent m delegation to urge (President Hoosevelt to force inflation with greenbacks. Seventy years ago, and for many long years thereafter, a delegation •of southerners demanding greenbacks would have been unthinkable. For the greenback had at least one thing in its favor, and that was that it helped the North to win the Civil war. The government at Washington Jhad scarcely begun the war before it found itself faced by an empty treasury. The war had interrupted foreign commerce and greatly reduced returns from the tariff, which was then the chief source of revenue. Business internally was also more or less paralyzed, and tresort to taxation could not provide sufficient revenue. Reluctantly congress came to the cause it helps to keep the America! dollar depreciated in foreign coun tries, and that is what Washington wants Just now in order to kee prices up on exportable products i] this country. One of the tricks by which trans fer is accomplished is to buy Amer ican securities which have a mar ket abroad. Having bought them here, the buyer sends them to som foreign country still on the goli standard, Holland or Belgium fo example, sells them there, and in stead of bringing the money horn leaves it in a foreign bank. Another way is to buy claim, against foreign governments pay able in gold, and again leave th money abroad when they are soli" Still another way is to buy Amer ican commodities which are in de mand abroad—cotton, tor exampl —ship them to foreign ports, anc leave the money they bring there There remain other means o skinning the cat, and all of them are used as need be..- It's an ol story, when any country-resorts t. debasement of its rrtottey. And o course as long as the money stay away it isn't being put to use a home. The people who do this may no be patriots, but patriotism doesn' count much in their case. If you were suddenly to bestow a million dollars on the .loudest patriot, you would be likely to see him promptly doing the same thing, for such is "iiuman nature. Timely Topics It seems to us that members of the legislature have a Just grievance against Governor Herring or whoever else is keeping the Brookings .report under cover. This plan ..involves great changes in state conclusion that the only way out j government, and a chance to study .was to print money and use it to it before it is presented to the leg- "jjay expenses. In 18&2 an issue of $160,000,000 was ordered. (In a few .months another issue was necessary, and by the end of the war a 'total of $450,000,000 in greenbacks Jhad been issued. Some authorities credit them with having won war; not that they were the islature ought to be afforded. The Farmers Union does itself damage when it demands the resignation of Secretary Wallace.

After the war the greenbacks were recognized as a disturbing •element in the monetary circulation. They had depreciated and had •driven all metallic currency out of circulation. iPaper money even had ist at heart, but he has got into a situation which it will be almost impossible to get out of without going the limit.

Who would have thought that NRA had added as many as 63 em- ployes to the working population the of Algona? A rough guess of a dozen would have seemed wild. If you average the wages of the new help at as low as $15 a week it means almost a thousand dollars a month in added pay roll in Algona. It is reported that the Federal ."jReserve is stepping its purchases of securities up to $100,000,000 a in denominations less than <a dollar, came to be known as shinplas- lers. _OBut as always after a war, .... times grew hard, and the people Relieved that it was scarcity of *noney which was to blame. So a anoveinent grew up against retirement of the greenbacks, and this movement turned into a demand for More. A greenback party was organized, and an lowan, J. B K We; «r, was nominated for president. iQeneral Weaver polled a big vote, J)Ut not enough to win. The greenback question, and then its first cousin, the silver question, played ao SMlt uave to a great part in the politics of the ru les of sound banking period between the close of the war j and 1879, In the end retirement of i the greenbacks was stopped, and I to this clay some $300,000,000 in! greenbacks remain in circulation. !, Of course the amount issued in ' the Civil war would be but a drop : in the bucket compared to what] would be needed to create inflation i ioday.

And she was so shocked that three months later At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent .Talkies By T 4 H» C. * . OTION PICTURE' directors, un• like wine, seem not to improve with age. In This pay and Age, veteran Director Cecil B, De Mille grows suddenly a bit childish, and this opus of the screen slips ignominioUsly into the cate- •gory of an eighth grade amateur performance. Never in the long history of the cinema has anything so tremendously trivial foeen presented for adult consumption. With his usual penchant for mob- scenes, .De Mille has introduced into this picture what we may earnestly pray will be "The gangster's Last Stand." With it, we further hope, the problem of the "Younger Generation" may be solved. If This Day and Age accomplishes these major objectives, we may pardon time and effort in* producing „ the picture. This Day and Age . presents a group, of high .school youths irked by frustration of Justice in failure to convict a gangster killer named Louis Garrett (horribly over-played by dramatic Charles Bickford). They take the law in their own hands and wring from the sudden ly cowed bad-man a confession ol his crimes, as he dangles in a rat infested well. Follows then a huge parade ol patriotic sophomores, with Mister Garrett riding astride a rail to the strains of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. The noise and -confus- ,on are terrific, but the audience strain is less dependent on depth of the theme than on the apparent shortcomings of the bewildered ac- ors and the ambitious director. No opportunity for all the ancient tear-Jerking devices has been overlooked by the frantic De Mille. There is the dying boy calling for his mother; the pure virgin about o be raped by a leering gang-rat; he aged Hebrew, shot down in old blood while he lips an unfin- shed sentence about Right. The only outstanding and real erformance is that contributed by he girl (Judith Allen), who some- pw gets her repugnance for the illainous assailant oyer... to - the udience with sincerity and convic- lon. Even in the greatly exagger- ted night club, her slight appre- ension as to her own safety and lat of 'her friends is subtly por- rayed. This Day and Age, we ear, is Maestro De Mille's obitu- ry notice. JE OF THE pernicious practices of the producers of our alking picture is loaning or "sub- etting" many popular actors and ctresses by one company to an:her. In this, way the same faces ften appear on six or eight suc- essive programs at the local the- ter, to the great detriment of the stors. 'Margaret Lindsay, one of the ris- ng young actresses of the screen jorn, -we believe, in our own Du- uque) is a good example of what e mean. We 'have seen her late- a model T Ford. Why is it' that producers have not yet learned a lesson which has been apparent to cinemaddicts for ages — namely, that technicolor is not effective? when combined with the black-and- white of the usual pictures? And, still the original story-plot is so effectively portrayed by this happy combination of Morgan and Brady that even this technicolor intrusion is forgotten in our interest in the growth of the family tree of Hackett. 'Probably . the most emotional scene is the death of Ted Junior in. the World war, shown first, by his youthful son playing at war with an old cane, while the action fades sketchily to France, where we se the actual death of his father in i .tremendous . fadeout, 'beautiful! and dramatically done.

Mr. Pfatf is governor of the eighth congressional district for NRA, Mr. Chris- chilles is Kossuth chairman, and Mr. Dewel Kossuth secretary. Representatives of other counties in the district attended. 'Following the banquet, Mr. Pfaff gave a short talk on what NRA proposes to do and told of solutions of some of the, problems which have arisen under interpre- tatoins of the blanket code.

BURT DEFEATS ST, JOHN'S IN FRIDAY GAME Burt, Sept. 26—The Burt high school ball nine won its third game this season Friday by taking the measure of the highly touted St. John's team at Bancroft, 7-5.

C. Dewel, of the Kossuth County Advance. Two weeks ago Mr. Barnes came through with the comment that he to their credit, did not perform according to advance dope, for the Burt boys outhit them by a wide margin. Hatten started on the mound for Bancroft, but after Burt had scored two runs and collected seven hits, Becker, who gained fame Friday b~y _a no-hit, no-run performance against Swea City, was sent in. iBecker, however, met the same fate as Hatten, for the (Burt boys scored five runs and collected four hits in the last three frames. Riddle, on the mound for Burt, allowed only six hits and tied with Gerald OHom for scoring honors by smacking out three hits in four After the talk the meeting was thrown open for questions, .and committee chairmen in attendance presented problems. Most of them dealt with'hours and wages. In but few cases had trouble been caused by misunderstandings of the code. Iowa Leads the Union. Iowa, Mr. Pfaff said, is 84 per cent under the code. Only 16 per cent of the business interests of the state are out. There are 44,000 signers of the president's code in Iowa. Iowa ranks first in proportion of signatures, leading the next nearest state by 14 per cent. Iowa's plan of county and city committees to deal with local problems has been adopted <by the national NiRA. This state was among the first to be completely organized. Two Kinds of Trouble. Mr. Pfaff said there are two kinds of expected trouble. One is where the employer takes advantage of the code to depress wages or labor takes advantage of the code to work undue hardship on the employer. Both conditions must be avoided, but particularly the latter, because wholehearted support of employers is necessary. The few cases where employers have taken advantage of help have been rectified immediately. Unofficial Interpretations. The second problem which causes trouble is unofficial interpretations. | of the code. -The only official interpretations are sent direct to the county headquarters. Unofficial interpretations hard no standing whatever. Mr. Pfaff said the code was meant to be interpreted in the light of good judgment and that where it is impossible to follow the letter of the code a reasonable divergence is permitted, provided always : that good .faith is involved.

Whan Ted Junior (Jackie Cooper) is old enough to appear with his adoring parents, the act receives fresh impetus, the elder Hackett having 'become prone to allow his act to fall into a monotonous routine, as shown by his flower gag, which he works at least three times in the course of the play. Then when Ted Junior falls in love and marries the danseuse (Madge Evans, slightly miscast) we reach the second stage of the play, and their child completes the circle from Broadway to Hollywood by appearing.in the movies as the concluding sequence of the picture. In keeping with the present tendency to add musical settings, to "bait the suckers," Broadway to Hollywood has elaborate musical comedy scenes, the least effective and most unnecessary of which is an old technicolor staircase chorus number which is as out of date as St. John's Defeats 1.
