THE CORN LOAN AND CORN-HOG REDUCTION PROGRAMS The corn loan program is another of the sudden, breath-taking moves characteristic of the present administration. Viewed from a political angle, it illustrates the remarkable ability of the administration to change unpopular strategy in lightnisglike fashion and snatch victory from defeat. For there can be no question that in the corn belt the administration faced rebellion a month, ago. The processing tax was not doing what had been expected of it; and for that matter, it is not yet effective, and Just now seems actually to be working the other way. The corn-lhog reduction .program had been proposed, but was meeting with a rather cool reception, and whether it could be put over was becoming a grave question. The holiday strike was in full career, and while its following was limited .there was danger that it would spread, in view of the widespread dissatisfaction over continued lack of parity in prices between agricultural products and What the farmer must buy. Nora and NRA were unpopular, blamed for having increased the disparity. View now the astonishing change in the corn belt brought about almost over night by the bold stroke of the president and 'Secretary Wallace in the corn loan program. Nira, N'RA, and the strike are temporarily forgotten; the processing the for low prices for a time at least, the picture; confidence administration is re- and, most important of tax and hogs, are put of in the stored; all, the corn-.'hog reduction program is riding to victory on the rump of tihe corn loan race horse. It takes political genius and boldness of a high order to command such a change, and the worst enemy of the administration, if there be any sporting blood in him at all, must take off his hat in genuine admiration. * * * *' The corn loan program will not reach all farmers. It will not do the farmer much good whose corn crop is so heavily covered with liens that only a small equity remains. It will not directly help the president to buy 40,000,000 acres of crop lands and issue paper money against it. If Mr. Roosevelt ever sees the memorial, it is certain that he will greet it with a smile, and though it is difficult for F. D. R. to achieve anything but a genial smile, it cannot be lacking a quality of cort* tempt. 'For though members of the lower house of the Iowa legislature may not know it, a scheme of this very sort was once tried by the French, and the disastrous results make one of the most celebrated chapters in history.

It is crackpot resolutions like this which Justify easterners when they refer to western legislators as "hicks." The memorial was sent to tlhei state senate for concurrence. Nothing has been heard of it since, and perhaps it has fallen into the hands of a committee wise enough to bury it in the obscurest 'pigeon hole in the stateihoUse. TIMELY TOPICS Comptroller General McCarl has for the second time ruled that General Johnson can not bar the Ford Motor Co. from lettings for government automobiles. Somebody had a bright idea when McCarl's Job to boss all government lettings for supplies was created. He holds office 15 years, is not removable save for cause, and is ineligible to reappointment, all of which makes him about the only federal executive official who can afford to be his own master subject only to law. Just because General Johnson wasn't rotten-egged, .he seems to think NRA is considered a howling success in the midwest. Well, he ought to read a few country weeklies for a change. He would find dissatisfaction pretty distinctly widespread in rural communities. Or the General might try being a farmer or a country business man a while. He would learn something worth knowing. As Governor Smith says himself, his course has laid him open to the charge that he is a political sorehead and a tool of Wall street. From the standpoint of his own political interests it would have been better to maintain silence where he could not approve. In, that respect .he stands in somewhat the position of an ex-president. The spotlight .has shifted and the crowd is now rooting for another hero. Mr. Cutler was euchred out of a democratic nomination for lieutenant governor which he apparently thought at the time was valueless save for the ihonor. Great must have been his chagrin to find that had he stuck to his guns he would have won. Then he lost tois job as assistant statehouse custodian or something. Nursing these political sores, lie determined on revenge: he would unhorse Governor Her•the farmer who feeds his wihole rin S- All of which is somewhat re- crop, though it ought to be of in-'mindful of the case of Long, the direct help by forcing up the price of corn; since if corn rises, then ousted state auditor who set out to defeat Governor Turner for the hogs and other livestock fattened i republican renomination a year ago last spring but found that 'not enough patriots to turn the trick were interested in .his fate. on corn ought -to follow suit. But even if the farmer who is too heavily encumbered, or who feeds all his crop, be disregarded, the relief to the scores of thousands of farmers in a position to take full advantage of the loan plan will be enormous, .and the benefits to the corn belt in general immediate, widespread, and incalculable. For the first time in four years a sizable number of farmers will have money in the bank and be able not only to buy necessities but pay old debts. Tihis means a revival in trade which may put the corn belt definitely around the elusive corner. Whether the loan plan would stand the_ test of economic theory is not now in point, at any rate not in the corn belt. The relief is offered, and it is not for .the corn belt to question it; the obvious thing to do is to grab it on the instant and make the most of it. At that there is some reason to believe that we shall only be evening 1 up with the rest of the country. The wheat and the cotton sections ihave had theirs, and certainly the industrial section, via the tariff, has always had more than was coming to it, not to mention the present benefits of Nira. Now it is our turn. * * * * Tying uo the corn loan plan with the corn-hog reduction program was a master stroke. There can be no question that it is the reduction plan that is needed for lasting results; or, at least, lasting enough to tide us over the rest of the worldwide depression. The loan plan is necessarily a temporary expedient; the government could not go on lending money year after year and piling surplus crop on surplus crop. That sort of thing would break under its own weight.

O what a glad surprise awaits the shopper at the store; Tis stepping into Fairyland to enter through the door; Then do not stop for wintry blasts, but brave the fleecy drifts, And start at once to make the rounds in quest of Christmas gifts. —OEORQE H. FREE. Wherein a Linotypist Gets a Colyumist in Bad. ['Ionia, Mich., News.l I have just finished a heart-to- heart discussion with Mrs. Keister, towit, my wife. It is liable to be renewed at any moment. The older the sweetheart of the household becomes the harder she is to convince. Somehow mother got the idea I was trying to pose as a surgeon by writing about the human anatomy. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The misunderstanding arose when mama read a reprint of one of my stories in the Durand Express in which Editor Harry Izor made it oldfash- ioned bellies, when it was old-fash- ionde belles (girls of yesteryear) I was describing in connection with a story about buckwheat pancakes. DISCUSSING abnormal food cravings, Ol' Doc Brady, who writes sawbones stuff for the Sioux City Journal and other papers, says he even knows people who crave mashed potatoes. Which leads us to suspect that as regards mashing the same and doping the mutilated product with cream, and generally destroying the potato flavor, the Doc is of our mind. Why in heck do the women have to treat a respectable potato like that? FOiR THE BENEFIT of the Farmer's Wife in the Algona Advance, we would say that we recently finished cleaning house, and will be ready by January 1 to start spring houseeleaning.—The Flapper in West Bend Journal. Paging Mrs. A. J. K., east of Algona, who once was amused when The Flapper, then a newlywed, told what a long time it took to clean house. Something Out of Joint. Traer Star-Clipper—The numerous assurances that foreclosure of real estate mortgages would be halted in Iowa seems not to be well founded. Occasionally final action is postponed until March 1, 1935, under the new law, but sheriff sales continue all over the state. Tama county is no exception. What the Epg Boost Means. Iowa Falls Citizen — On first thought, the best news we have heard this week was that the price of eggs had gone up four cents per dozen. But on second thought, it is not such good news after all. With all the hens on their annual winter strike is simply giving big interests an opportunity to unload their cold storage eggs, purchased at seven and eight cents per dozen, at a big profit. I)o Not Bock the Boat. Envmetsburg Defocrat — This is no time to rock the boat. Our government is doing everything possible to bring us out oif the depression, and, judging from the general results thus far, is succeeding admirably. We, of the corn belt, are still in the depths, but we must remember that measures, proposed by farm leaders themselves, are being given a fair try-out. If these do not succeed, others will be tried. We All Like Henry's Honesty. Knoxville Journal — All Iowa THE OFFICIAL GERMAN government newspaper recently published this: "'American universities . . . are populated by the sons of wealthy farmers who with a Colt strapped) to their hips and a lasso dangling from the shoulder loaf around the campus while their horses are being fed. After four semesters they buy themselves a doctor's degree for $500 and receive an exquisitely engraved diploma on sheepskin. — Washington Gossip in S. C. Journal. husiasm almost bordered on ad- niration as we followed her moods .nd passions through the exciting eels of The Prizefighter and the ,ady. But there are many sur- jrizes in this surprise-picture of he year. .This Maxie Baer is more than ust a slugger, too. With clever irection, he gets *he most out of he role of conceited,, easy-going, Philandering ring-idol. There are wo short scenes in which he scores tnockouts; when he gives Myrna he first kiss—a touching, tender, ripping little sequence—then when ,e kneels beside his estranged wife and pathetically asks forgiveness. This may not be one of the ten, r even 21), "best" cinemas of the ear, but it has its moments—and hat momenta! Another of the pleasant surpris- s is the quiet, suave performance f Otto Kruger, who for the first ime in screen history gives to a angster cafe owner a semblance f intelligence and culture. Otto is bit too sacrificing perhaps, a lit- le too big-hearted; but at leaat he s a gentleman about it, and you eel that' he has that rare human ttribute, the milk of human kind- ess, flaming in his veins.. The third surprise is the fight romoter, Walter Huston, who .Tings out the last bitter drop of motion from a rather superficial ole. Then, thrown in for good measure, are Primo Cannera, Jack empsey, Jess Willard, and other ing celebrities. The plot is of little consequence, hougih the interpretation of the ove-life of a fighter's wife by tyrna lay is a delicate, searching :udy. Her .behavior at the ring- ide in the big fight .between her usband and the giant Camera, her noods, her emotions, are so clever- y .portrayed .that you are able to ollow them step by atep. "iLove," says Myrna, in sub- lance, "is like a pin-wheel that you ght. on the 4th of July—it either pins dizzily, making you feel ump inside, or it sputters a few 'mes and goes—poof!" You've seen both pin-wheels and ove act that way. When Otto aug- ests that he give her intoxicated usband a knock-out drink and end him home, she says, "No, I ave better and more legitimate ricks." "What kind of tricks?" ueries Otto. "Oh,- bordering on e feminine," she answers. The Prizefighter and the Lady, eing a surprise picture, receives robably lengthier comment than that we havfi enormously increased jliked Henry Wallace's Des Moines our production of corn and hogs in the' last dozen years and at same time have all but lost the the foreign markets for our surpluses. If Wallaces' F«r'" t "- Tins done nothing else worth while in the last year or two. it has ft least pounded that truth home till every farmer able to read knows it. This situation admitted, it is nothing short of folly to RO on in the old way. Whether we like it or not we must reduce, or suffer the consequences in continued depression for agriculture. In short, then, the thing for farmers to do in the emergency which confronts us is to fall line witto the government's agricultural program in full, accepting in good faith not only the loan plan, but also the in the long run more important reduction plan. It certainly looks like a better plan than none; and, after all, farmers have little or nothing to lose by it, and if it works they have everything to gain. SHADES OF JOHN LAW AND FRENCH HISTORY! The house of representatives at Des Moines recently memorialized speech, largely we suspect, because they like Henry. But it was a gooc speech, blunt, plain spoken, anc honest. Whatever Iowa farmers may think about the wisdom or effectiveness of the astounding program c-f the AAA, they concede thai Secretary Wallace is actuated by a sincere desire to be helpful to agriculture and that he believes in the soundness and effectiveness of that program. Taxes and the Little Fellow. Northwood Anchor—What wil Iowa get out of the numerous taj projects proposed to be considerec by the special session of the legislature? The tendency is to stick the fellow who can pay—that is, the man or woman who has tangible property upon which levies can be made. It does not seem to occur to many people that thousands oi small salaried persons who oughi to be contributing their -mites towards state support spend more money foolishly than their tax would amount to if fairly apportioned. Exemption leads to abuse A tax that will tax everybody will cease to be a penalty to be paid for thrift and economy as is now the case.

[Oskaloosa Tribune.] A Pella paper giving items of interest 30 years back, says "13 ducks and two squirrels were seen in the vicinity of the college." The situation has not improved much in 30 years, as the last time we went by there we saw 17 ducks and a whole flock of squirrels. The ducks were wearing duck skirts and ducky little berets, while the squirrels all had on football sweaters and leather caps.

Without the friendly contact of boon companions, life would indeed be a drab and colorless merry-go-round. But with this contact comes insight into the problems, itihe troubles which beset the human race. Life becomes not an aimless humdrum, but a vital, .pulsing spectacle, more interesting than any photoplay that ever flashed on a silver screen or stalked across the stage of any theater. And we ponder at the paucity of movie plots that deal with the really fundimentals 'of life, the little things that bring mellowness into human hearts, kindness, sympathy, understanding. We see the great, sweeping, vistas of human emotions, the towering peaks and lofty crags of tremendous passions, but so little, ao very little,, of the fertile valleys of lesser yearnings in lonely, aching hearts of the great army of mankind. There are only a few movies like that. Back Street was one, The Cradle Song another. The man or the woman who has not learned the sweet lessons of compassion and kindness, who ihas not held out a hand to a tottering soul (without hope of reward), who has not confided innermost thoughts to kindred friend, that man or woman is indeed an object of supreme pity, for such have missed the essence of Life and are doomed. ; merits, s.

Statehouse, (Dec. 8—Last week I failed to write my weekly letter, because I was not here to do so. The House adjourned last week Wednesday for the rest of the week. This was the result of a resolution which originally endeavored to adjourn both House and Senate from Wednesday afternoon until Monday morning without pay. 'he resolution was later amended • adjourn for Thanksgiving only. The Senate laid the resolution on le table and decided to have a ew' senators reconvene Friday lorning to adjourn till Monday, he. House interpreted this as a hallenge, so adjourned f«r the est of the week. It is too bad that these distressed times, "buck assing" becomes a pastime among men elected to serve the people. Dam Rights Considered. Last Tuesday and Wednesday the loscow dam bill was before the ouse for consideration. This was Iso considered by the 44th. O. A. short this measure provided for he diversion of the Cedar river at 'oscow into the Mississippi at a oint four miles below Moscow. The principle .involved was the Id question of the right to derive citizens of natural resources order that the same might be sed by corporations for private ain. In the disposal of this mater we suffered through two days oratory, and the outcome was xactly as expected: ayes, 39; ays, 66. House File No. 160, a bill relat- ng to motor vehicle license fees, s on the calendar, and will soon be p for consideration. The measure is an attempt to haftnonlie House Pile Nd«. S, 10, and 88.

It will hot remove all objectionable features, but it is maybe the best we sfoall be able to get, Auto fax Relief Wanted. iProm the communications I receive I gather that there is a great deal of agitation for relief along this line. I certainly hope something will materialize to meet the demands. . The quest for a tax scheme which will raise the desired revenue to maintain government and at the same time hurt no ope continues. The gross income tax boys claim they have found the solution to the tax problem, and, strange as it may aeem, some of the farmer members are falling for it. I have been told many times by the proponents of this tax that I am unable to think this thing through; if I could only do so, I would favor their measure. Follower Shows Up Tax.

There is too little drawing 1 ower to a play of this description, lut, it is safe to say, once inside he theater, there are few disap- 10)nted customers. We previewed The Cradle Song ome weeks ago. and gave it a carte ilanche (meaning, if our French ails us not, "a clean slate"). This picture depicts another angle of mother-love, in the maternal ffection which a nun feels for a girl-foundling left at the door of a :onvent. When the child grows to •oung womanhood and becomes en- jaged, a struggle begins in the icart -of the nun. Doubly sacrific- ng, because she has herself been denied the emotion of love for a member of the opposite sex, she finally gives up her adopted daughter and sends her out into the world of struggle. There is something infinitely tender, kind, and compassionate about this fragile little screen drama — something that lifts you above the sordidness of this cruel world and sends you away with the exalted feeling of having listened to an in- And therein lies spiring sermon, its chief charm. Not a small part of enjoyment of The Cradle Song is contributed by almost faultless photography in the convent scenes, flashes of restful pastoral beauty, so delicate, so wistful, so feathery that the; weave a spell of romance • arounc your heart.
