TAKE THE GIFTS THAT THE GODS PROVIDE [Marshalltown T.-R,] If Marshall county farmers could find $750,000 in the road, divide it according to a system, irhat would be the consequences, and would we hold a barn dancel We would! —Now they say that the state of Iowa is to get 75 millions of that corn and hog cash bonus program. That will be a little better than the $750,000 referred to so lovingly just above. Why don't we set about get* ting it while the getting is gettable? Never mind where or how it comes from. Crowd in! The fa- tele's set! Pass the bonus this way! White or dark meat? Eith- er'or both! But start passing things. Pass the cash to the hog and corn farmer first Hand it along to the merchant. Please don't forget the newspaper that has been on short commons for a year or so, and has been patient. Pass things to the hired man; to the fellow who needs a job. "WhereM we get this bonus?" As grandfather used to say sometimes, 'Let your victuals stop your mouths!' The gods have provided! Beach for your share! Don't stand back like a bound boy at a husking bee! Tell 'em to pass the bonus. It's like a letter with money in it waiting at the postoffice. Call for it! Seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars! To spend and pay debts and everything! We wouldn't have thought so much of $750,000 for the county hog and corn farmers a few- years ago. But now, when one of those little dollar bills looks like a horse blanket, how does 8750,000 look? Why not get yours? KOflSUTtt COUNTY APVANCtt. ALOONA. IOWA exciting as the wartime dispatches from the Marne and the Hindenburg line. THE SALARt GRAB RECORD POWiY TO DATE , _ Enough senators and representatives have paid back the salary grab to make a total sum of $21,287.62 plus $2949.77 interest. There are plenty yet who have not paid, and among them are prominent present legislators, such as Senator Frailey and Representative MoFar- lane, former lieutenant-governor. Senators Baird, Benson, and Bergman, who used to figure largely in legislative doings, have not paid. Both candidates for the republican nomination for lieutenant governor last year, Clark, of Linn, and Bennett, are among the delinquents. Lange, who once or twice ran for governor, still has his $600, and so have Shaft, Topping, Ickis, and 21 other senators who are content to let it stand of record that they keep money which the supreme court has held is not rightfully theirs. It is surprising to find former Speaker Johnson among representatives who have not paid; also Judge Lovrein, of Spencer, who has announced candidacy for the republican nomination for governor next year. (But they have plenty of company. Altogether 67 members of the salary grab House are delinquent, and 30 members of the senate. This is 61 per cent plus of the total membership of the salary grab legislature, A handful in each house, however, did not take the money, including Congressman Gilchrist, then a senator. The record does not speak well for a rigid sense of honesty among legislators. This does not mean in taking the money in the first place—doubtless all of them were guiltless of deliberate intention of taking what was not rightfully theirs—but in keeping it after the supreme court ruled that it was illegally appropriated. It will be interesting to observe whether Attorney General O'Connor, who is pushing collections, will deem it expedient or find it legally possible to hold up the compensation of present legislators who are delinquent salary grab beneficiaries and apply it on what they owe the state. How embarrassing if he does! Timely Topics NEWS OF THE BATTLE ON THE MONETARY FRONT The money question is coming to & head, and we are repeating history. In times of depression two monetary schools become vocal. One is for monetary inflation, the other against it. On no peacetime .issue is there greater disagreement. Fassions rise, epithets fly; neither side can see anything on the other's. There are yet many old enough to remember two such periods in the past. There was a great monetary battle in 1896, preceded by years of skirmishing. Twenty years "before, there was another such battle. Every generation has to fight it over again. The present battle will figure in history, just as all its predecessors did. It is evident that at this time there is a great drive against the monetary policies of President Roosevelt. There had been high murmuring for months, but the attack now in progress opened with the resignation o£ Professor Sprague. The fight has already waxed furious, titanic. It is mostl a civil war among the democrat This is not the first time they hav -split, iln 1896 democrats walke out of the presidential conventio at Chicago and ran their own can didate for president. They did no «lect their man, didn't expect tc but they defeated Bryan. The president has few recognize monetary experts on his side. Mos vociferous among administratio supporters is Father Coughlin. N practical experience is claimed fo Slim, but his sincerity is not doubt «d. Many high Catholic church -men do not agree with him. His at tack on Governor Smith was de mounced Tuesday by the Chancello of the arch-diocese of New York a "absolutely unwarranted." Father Coughlin's charge Hia Governor Smith was actuated b personal considerations went to far. It will not be believed. Per haps Governor Smith was also to violent. He spoke of "baloney do! lars" and "guinea pig expcrinienta tion." No doubt such languag should be reserved for Genera Johnson. In a hasty moment Pres ident Roosevelt descended to a mile sort of the same thing, when h referred to opponents as "tories. We are getting to the point in thi battle where commanders lose thei beads and get nasty. Bernard Baruch, financial ex pert, close friend of the president powerful in the administration las spring, ihas published in the Satur day Evening (Post an article flaying the administration's monetary poll cies. Paul M. Warburg, erstwhile administration expert, takes a simi lar position. Thirty Columbia pro fessors of economics have denounc ed the policy. Chamber of The United States Commerce is ou against it. It is suspected that Secretary Woodin is secretly opposed Dean Acheson is out of the treasury because he could not stomach it. The 'New York legislature ,has petitioned the president to return to sound money. On the contrary the Kansas legislature has petitioned for inflation. It is^ll most confusing, and congress is about to meet and Join in the melee. The next few months are going to be interesting for side- aine spectators. You can note already how the war changes front from time to time. A month ago it •was the NBA front that figured in the news, but that phase of the struggle is over, and it is the drive on the monetary front that now draws the headlines. The thrills the morning paper brings are as >If a good many 'beer permits are not dropped when the time to renew comes, we shall miss our guess. The .business is not what it was cracked up to be. Perhaps much the same thing will happen when hard liquors return. Can it be, after all, that 15 years of prohibition educated enough potential liquor consumers out of the notion to cut off the profit margin? There has not been a time before an more than 35 years when country newspapers needed the support of their subscribers more than they do now. With advertising, their chief source of revenue, cut in half, they need their subscription money, and need it badly. Every subscriber who can pay a dollar on subscription to any local newspaper publisher ought to do it. Attacks on General Johnson's army style of NBA enforcement are becoming titter and widespread. Indicative of a large representation of public opinion is a resolution introduced in the Illinois legislature asking the president to oust Johnson and substitute an administrator who would not resort to "pugnacious, bulldozing boycott methods." This is no time to get mad at your neighbor for a different opinion than your own about the president's monetary program. There is division of opinion as wide as the poles in Mr. Roosevelt's own political household. Witness Pro fessor Sprague resigning because he thinks the president's gold pol icy goes too far, and the very nex day Governor Bryan, of Nebraska denouncing the same policy be cause it does not go far enough.

It's Not a Partisan Affair. iHamipton Chronicle — 'Leading _ loyal democrats are giving the NRA a worse tongue lashing daily than some of the republicans. The demo crats of the farming communitie cannot be fooled by those Tarn manyites of the east. Ah, Here's Another Libel Suit. Hampton Chronicle — The lieu tenant governor of Iowa continues to rate well as an auctioneer. How ever, he does not seem to rate so high as a statesman with some o the higher up democratic officials in Washington. And that federa job he has been looking for and so anxious to land is likely to be far ther away because of recent devel opments. ' Another Pipedream is Exploded. Knoxville Express ('Dem.)— The national department of agriculture says our corn crop this year will be over two and a quarter billion iushels, as compared to the average crop of two and a half billion bushels. Thought the brewing and distilling was going to absorb all ;he surplus grain and keep prices skally-hooting as soon as repeal came up over the horizon? This is Really a "New Deal." Knoxville Journal California court has decreed that the federal government has the right to tell a Manufacturer how many .peaches he nay can. If that decision is sustain:d by the Supreme Court it means hat the power of government Is unlimited; that free America no onger exists; that the government an tell the farmer what and how auch he may plant; the newspa- er owner how many papers he may print and circulate; and the orner grocer how much business e may have. S INCE A G.RASS widower is more or less 1 free of routine marital restraints, and in particular because T. H. C. publicly arid privately entices us, we have of late dallied more with the movies than had been our custom. And" certainly the perfect service at the Call is an additional inducement. Recently we attended a movie at a big Evanston, 111., theater equipped with aids for the deaf, but to our way of thinkin', to quote Al Smith, no city theater compares with the Call except in point of vastiness and mural and other decorations. But what we started out to say was that Footlight Parade caught our fancy. True, it's the girliest, the leggiest, the most nude of shows. But somehow it doesn't offend, as merely sexy leg shows do, and the' gorgeousness of the principal scenes is no less than. stupendous. And Mae West! Tired out with a steady grind from 5 a. m. till 9:30 p. m., we were on the point of home and bed, when T, H. C. tempted and we fell. And did Mae satisfy? She did, and then some! Nor would we bar the kids,'as T. H. C. does, unless they were also barred from a lot of the other sexy stuff in the movies. iFor, after all, virtue triumphs in I'm No Angel. The newspaper Docs have been praising Mae because her example of Victorian feminine curves tends •to discourage the recent vogue of anemic _ slenderness among women, particularly young women. Nevertheless in our opinion Mae could diet off 25 pounds to great advantage. But her voice and enuuncia- tion, for the deaf at least, are perfect. Only, we wish Mae wouldn't sing. SOME OF OUiR young people should be just a little bit more discreet when taking that last kiss before parting for the evening. It would make a good story, but we won't say any more this time.— Editor Frank Koch in West Bend Journal two weeks ago. The short local in last week's Journal about kissing has caused the editor to foe put on the-spot. We really didn't know there were so many prospective brides and grooms in town. Several have informed us that it wasn't them and asked us to give the fact due notice, but if we mentioned their names that would only complicate matters. Anyway, what's a kiss between lovers? No names were mentioned in the local, and it might have been you or somebody else. No one will know if we have to tell it. We find it'pays to advertise.—Last week's Journal. Well, for goodness sake! A near example in real life of that hoary old country newspaper Joke about the editor who published a warning that if the fellow who was seen kissing a neighbor's wife didn't settle his subscription the names would be printed, and next day was waited upon by 47 gentlemen anxious to pay up! WE DISCOVER that we do not have copies of the Heraild lor the first two weeks of January, 1916. We will appreciate receiving said copies. Also, the November issues of 1893 (40 years ago) are missing. —Pa Olson in Story City Herald. Awarded our annual leather medal with veil in cap effect for best example editorial faith! But, Mr. Casey, Perhaps Wilfred Hud Just Seen Mae West! [Knoxville (Express.] The world moves! You know Funk & Wagnalls, publishers of the Literary 'Digest and other serious works? Sure! Well, the president, Wilfred J.

I deemed you one who never let Your feelings rise; A girl impossible to pet. And coldly wise. Do you recall the day we kissed, The love we tasted?— Oh, darling! All the fun we missed! The time we wasted! —Wilfred J. Funk. Did you ever suppose the pro moter of nationwide ballots wa.s a such scandalous worker as this' "The love we tasted! The time we wasted!"

Eye Observing.] I can't say what the rule is that governs the case but I have to agree with the conclusion reachec by Alien, of the Kossuth County Advance, on this "boner" from a recent issue of the Eye Observing column: "Long ago it became appareni that all highway accidents coulc not be avoided." Now Alien's comment: "You see that one everywhere: In the most carefully edited newspapers; in magazines; in books; in Shakespeare, if we are not mistaken. Yet it always grates on our sense of grammar, if any. Why would not this be better?— "Long ago it became apparent :hat not all highway accidents could be avoided'."

H, C. W E Pictures reviewed this weeks Havana Widows The Fire Chief I'm No Angel. OFTEN WONDER, as we write these controversial reviews week after week, why we never hear from indignant readers. Surely* scarcely a week passes but some are outraged. Why, in the three or four years during which we have conducted this citadel of criticism, have so few letters of protest reached our desk? Controversy is the spice of life. We "lay ourselves wide open" week after week inviting the argument which gives flavor to the dullness of daily routine. The next time we tread heavily on .YOUR toes, ,the, very next time we "slay" your favorite actor or smite your cherished actress, won't you write a line Of protest? TJAVANA WIDOWS is a hot, •*•* spick, peppery little dish with a quartet'of cinema's most droll wise-crackers doling out food. There isn't an ounce of sense in the whole production, but it clips along at a lively pace and teams up our two favorite comediennes, Joan Blondell and Glenda (Farrell, in whose hands even a dish of spinach would be appetizing. Add to this the quaint, drunken humor of Frank MoHugh and the colossal stupidity of Allen Jenkins, and you really have something; that is, if you go in for extremely light farce once in awhile. This is the story of two burlesque "queens" who find the going pretty tough. A chorus-girl returns from Cuba decked out like a Christmas tree and informs her struggling buddies that there's gold "in them thar hills." 80 our two golddiggers set off for sunny Cuba to get themselves a nice, rich millionaire sugar-daddy. The going doesn't turn out so good, but they finally land their man (Guy Kibbee), after a hectic and noisy encounter. Lyle Talbot supplies the love interest, which is slightly weak. This is a picture that must be seen. You hear plenty even then. When Joan tells Jenkins that she needs $1500 to have her mother's gallstones removed, he says blandly, "She must-a got those stones at Tiffany's." And when Glenda tells him that Joan is convalescing, he retorts bewilderingly, "She can stop for a few minutes, can't she?".This savors slightly of gutter-humor, but a little of it is refreshing occasionally. Cuban rumba music adds a piquant touch to the proceedings. Shown on the same bill is another W. C. Fields comedy, called The Barber, which, While not quite up to the usual high standard set by ;his funnyman, is nevertheless considerably above the short sketch standard. It's so much superior to Thelma Todd's offering, also shown on the bill, that we are grateful iven for small favors. A T A MIDNIGHT show on New Year's Eve some years ago, NOBODY; GOT SHOT last week. —Swea City Herald's pheasant- shooting story. Tut! Tut! Mr. Sperbeck. Not even "shot"? NAT A. BUCK, of Burlington, las been elected cashier of a new ank at Garner. Well, that's convenient. All he will have to do when a farmer applies for a loan will be to write his own name, changing one letter. —ALIEN. Manager Rice gave his expectant customers Ed Wynne in The Perfect Fool. This, has always marked the "low" in pictures, in our estimation. Now the best thing that can be said about The Fire Chief is that it isn't as bad as we expected. However, we were able to sit through only a couple of reels. There is only one bright feature about it: the thoughtful producers cast our other cinema Nemesis, Charles (Chic) Sales, in the same picture; and thus, instead of spoiling TWO talkies, they simply shoved The Chief into the cellar of oblivious limbo. : We had thought Dorothy Mackail rather good as the Mae West type of actress of the gay 90's. Funny how this gal Mae West set the women gaga in the matter of swaying hips; looks like the boyish figure has gone for at least a decade. Dorothy, whether she likes it or not, plainly shows the Mae West influence by shaking h_er. hips insinuatingly and swanking through The Fire Chief with a rare air of abandon. Our favorite villain, C. Henry Gordon, is in The Chief too. What a grand "badman" he is, with his leering eyes and his black mustache. We almost lingered through the show to see the final denoue- miint, but the awful prospect of having to lodk at Edjand'CJuc during three' or four Reels'stayed the rash resolve, so we checked the production off to profit and loss and called this the essence of a misspent evening. But no, how can we say that, when Manager Rice was 'kind enough to bring our dear little Pigs back again! What a short THAT is! Every time we see it we get a new thrill. A little youngster back of us supplied it for us on this occasion. How he Jumped up and down in.his seat when the big, bad wolf was chasing the cute little pink pigs to their houses of straw, twigs, and brick. Here is positively the. most original thing the talkies have ever given us, a real artistic gem. If you haven't seen The Three Little Pigs, you have simply missed the best picture of the year, and no foolin'. A-N'D NOW FOR Mae West and **• Clara Bow in two hip-shaking orgies. ' Mae West, like the late Texas Guinan, depicts members of that noble and exalted sorority of infamous women known, for lack of a better word, as sirens. Given a "break," (as "Texas" used to say), either of these "grande dames" might have played the role of a Cleopatra or a Madame Pompadour. They possess that illusive, vague, strictly feminine attribute called sex appeal. Sex appeal, like personality, is difficult to define. Vlae West's great popularity of late tias been the subject of moot discussion. Everybody is trying to discover the secret of her vogue. Why, they are even styling fashions after what she wore in She Done Him Wrong. As in the case of the 'rincess Eugenia, vogue of a season or two ago, she is actually show- 'ng her virtuous sisters what :lothes to wear and bow to wear em! Mae West's appeal may be sum- med up.in a few words: it ia the blatant courage to stand up and tell the cockeyed world the truth, the whole truth', and well, as Mae puts it in the courtroom scene, there's no use telling too much, either. Mae wages war against that greatest ot our national vices, hypocrisy. She calls a spade a spade! That's what folks like about her, even though it shocks them a bit. How often all of us would like to come out into the open and tell the truth. But years of prejudice, centuries of hypocrisy, usually stay our actions, and we sit back and seal our lips. Not so with Sister Mae. "When I'm good, I'm very good," she leers, "and when I'm bad I'm better." - Perhaps if we understood the language of Madame West a little better, if we looked a trifle deeper into the innermost hearts and.souls of men and women—perhaps we all might be a bit more charitable, a bit more forgiving, a little bit more appreciative of the rights of neighbors and other tellowmen. Only one criticism might be leveled against Miss West, and that is that she struts her stuff a little too suggestively and apparently. A swaying.' hip or a fluttering eyelid may be all right occasionally, but too much is too much, even of a good thing. Yet—'well, the truth is always an unwelcome visitor, and we are all apt to Judge a situation or a personality according to our own. prejudices and convictions. Mae has stirred up the human animals like the savage lions in this picture. There isn't much to review about I'm No Angel. It isn't the story that .She Done Him Wrong was, but Miss West's interpretation of life remains pretty much the same. To paraphrase our heroine, it resolves itself to .these few, simple, homely words, "Any man can be made!" • Mae sings a little, sighs, and moans a great deal, and sways her hips prodigiously. She is attended by three colored maids to whom she gives out her "pearls" or sex philosophy. She saves plenty for the various men who roll in and out of her life like the myriad waves of the ocean. "It isn't the men in your life; it's the life in your men," says Mae calmly, I'm No Angel is strictly adult entertainment, and wise- parents should keep their youngsters at home during the showing of pictures of this nature. Yet no mature man or woman but can learn some lessons of life from Mae West. You may call this play vulgar and lousy, but remember, the truth is seldom pleasant to take. And remember, also, that, much as you may dislike admitting it, swaying hips and soft caresses have ruled the destiny of this old world since time immemorial, and will probably continue to exert an influence till the crack of doom. And while I'm No Angel isn't of particular moment, neither was an insignificant assassination in Servia, in itself, 19. years ago—but how about the consequences? Has Mae West started something? 6ROCER HERE SERVES 2000 PANCAKES FREE Callers at the W. A. White grocery store were treated to free Fidelity cakes, Butternut coffee, Big Sioux cookies Saturday afternoon and evening. The pancakes were 'baked in one of the front windows by a chef sent by the Dennison Milling company, whose pancake flour was used.' Nearly 200 pounds of flour was used, which figures out to some 2,000 pancakes. The coffee was made by a representative of the Butternut company, and eight pounds of coffee was used. The cookies and crack- esr were furnished by the Manchester Cracker company, and nearly ten pounds were used. There was a constant stream of callers both .afternoon and evening. Served with the pancakes was more than two and a half gallons of Staley's syrup and more than ten pounds of Algona creamery butter. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Vigars met their daughter Margaret, Ella Zumach, [ and Margaret Habegar at Britt yesterday, and brought them .the rest.of; the way.home for the Thanksgiving week-end. The,girls are students at. state Teachers college. APPLESAUCE, PLAY GIVEN BY JUNIOR CUftWELL DONE Between acts specialties at » Junior play Monday a»d Tuesday nights at the hi«h school aud^or- ium "stole the show." They were encored repeatedly by a highly appreciative audience. A tap dancing number of Melvin Miner and (Robert McCuliough ,was especially well received, the youths showing talent for comedy as well as dancing. A "Bunkville" quintet in novel costumes was a close second in the audience's favor. Both numbers were called back after their supply of encores had been exhausted. A girls' tumbling act and a cheer leader dance completed the specialty program. ,, The play, "Applesauce," concerned the rivalry ot practical Hollo Jenkins (Melvin Miner) .and happy- go-lucky Bill McAllister (John Bishop) for the love of Hazel Robinson (IRuth Malueg). Bill and Hazel marry, and in the third act prove that in a two-room flat they have learned to escape the constant domestic bickering exemplified by Mr. and Mrs. Robinson (James Chubb and Isabel Greenberg) and by Mrs. Jennie Baldwin, (Arlene Brethorst) a neighbor. McAllister's philosophy, stated in spicy epigrams, holds that mild flattery, or "applesauce," makes the world a more pleasant place in which to live. Tight-fisted Matt McAllister, uncle of Bill and a ward politician, is portrayed by Robert McCullough. ONLY 22 GENUINE DEMOS AT TITONKA Whether in connection with the Titonka postoffice contest or not was not stated, but Editor Lee O. Wolfe, of the Topic, visited the- county auditor's office a week ago Saturday to find out how many Buffalo voters called for democratic ballots at last year's primary election and found only 22, though 271 votes were cast in the township for Roosevelt at the fall election. The "faithful" as listed by Mr. Wolfe were Charles Reibsamen, Edward P. Wolfe, Nate Walsh, Fred Boyken, Henry Meyer, William Baade, Ed Brown, Charles Wandling, Henry E. Gerdes, Luvia Craven, Martha Boyken, John Muldoon, Mrs. Fred Boyken, Elizabeth Kennedy, C. T. Thomas, George Higgins, Frank Hauptly, Glen Miller, William Bentley, Anna Wandling, L. Oesterreicher, and .Ross Oesterreicher. Mr. Wolfe missed William Boyken and Jennie and Harold Breen. William ^Bentley" in his list is Wm. J. Butler. According to the test of democracy which it was sought to apply in the Goeders case, no one who voted other than a democratic ticket at the primaries can be considered politically eligible to a democratic official appointment. Mr. Wolfe revealed that while he copied the names from the /poll book a member of the auditor's staff stood over him to see that no voter's party designation was changed. Mr. Butler says this is Just one of Mr. Wolfe's sly jokes. Junior Declam is Held at Burt H. S. Burt, Nov.

Brethorst Also Held. At the BreUiorst farm the officers discovered 116 empty gallon cans and a can half full, Brethorst was brought into the' case when he and K'leven had an interview last Thursday and both requested others in the room to leave so they could hold their conversation privately. The search'followed. > • Coroner Evans empanelled .a jury consisting of A. A. 'Sterling, Lynn Keith, and Jos. Harig, last Thursday night, following the death of Kleven. Mrs. Kleven testified that her son said'he was burned at a farm six miles north, of Algona. He had previously stated to Doctor Cretzmeyer that he had been burned at a Qteil or Stile farm three miles north of Bancroft. tSteil denied knowing or having employed Kleven, but he was bound to the grand jury by Justice H. B. White Saturday under $1,000 bond. Similar action was taken with Brethorst, both being held on charges of illegal possession of alcohol. Coroner's Jury Recesses. The body of the youth was taken to Jordan, Minn., Friday by his parents, and burial was made there Saturday. The coroner's Jury held several sessions Friday, but reached no conclusions, and so recessed till tomorrow, or whenever the jurors may be called by Doctor Evans. The only verdict possible under present knowledge would be death from burns resulting from the explosion of an alcohol. still at an unknown place. Identity of the persons who brought Kleven to the hospital haa not yet been definitely established, but the officers are now pretty certain,who it was. • « .
