HE. BONNSTETTEn'S POSITION ON H. F. NO. 176 Wihat Bepresentative Bonnstetter, in his weekly legislative letter, has to say about house file No. 176 ought to be highly interesting to farmers. This is the bill aimed at direct buying of livestock toy packers. It provides for licensing of buyers, weighing, grading, inspection _ of -scales, prevention of discrimination unfair competition, etc. The bill is bitterly opposed by packers. In an effort to kill it they have sent men into every community to induce farmers to oppose it. Mr. Bonnstetter says that more "heat" has been directed at him in opposition 'to the bill than on anything else in his legislative experience. *."•.,.. A representative of the Decker tacking company at Mason City i un ill mlil r time in Kosup sentiment against securing letters in opposition tor. use as "heat" applied to Senator Patterson and Mr. Bonn- fitetter. Notihing herein is intended to tsast reflections on the Decker representative. He is a gentleman, and he is doing only what the rest •of us do — looking after his own in- Jterests and his employer's. The gentleman has secured a large and impressive numlber of letters opposing the bill. Citing an example or two, take A. Hutchison, Algona, and George E. Butterfield, Swea City, chairman c-f the county bonds buys more. The case is reversed when prices ate rising. (People with money to invest then look for something that pays better. A bad market for bonds, however, means that many enterprises which would otherwise help speed up the circulation of money and credit are halted because they cannot be financed. TIMELY TOPICS «he •warehousing board, •toany isore like them. There are It would not do to suggest that men of this cali- t>er do not know what they are about. On the other hand Mr. Bonnstet- },? ter is of equal standing, his ability \\ to pierce camouflage is well ii I known, he is on the ground where *'•', lie hears both sides, and he is defi- witely in favor of the bill, which he will support regardless of "heat." Mr. Bonnstetter's reasons for this course are interesting and significant. 'It is his view that the pack- iSpeaking of getting money into the hands of the people, these corn loan and corn-hog plans are certainly the berries. Surely there is no need of fiat greenbacks while this lasts. And as for what Uncle Sam is going to do with all the corn next fall, why, indeed, WE should worry! On December 31 the blanket Nira agreements with the president expire. There has been talk of an executive order extending them, but legal authorities have pointed out that one party to a contract cannot do that without the other's consent, and at last accounts the administration seemed to think the point was good. iPractically every authority worthy the name—except, of course, Professor Warren and his coterii has condemned the president's gold juggling scheme as unworkable. But, good lord, what a fall there would be of economists if they turned out to be wrong! Governor Rolph, the apologizer for lynchers, felt perfectly free to "sass" iHoover, but when President Roosevelt got into the game the governor wasn't man enough to stand his ground. Mr. Hoover must have thought grimly that the dif- erence betwe_en an ex-president and a president is some difference. The prediction that Iowa would lose President Jessup in case of a big cut in his salary has come true, though whether as a result of the cut Ibut merely because he secured a better or more attractive job is not stated, friow it remains to be seen whether the university can get as good a man for the present salary. When (Francis G. Cutler, Boone aspirant for Governor Herring's •shoes, as here two weeks ago, he explained that the statehouse jab (he was fired from was' an assistant custodianship. That eeems to have been an euphemistic name for it, according to the Knoxville Express, which reveals that he was a night watchman. •Americans used to COMEWHAT ASTONISHING but true, the Advance is by way of jecoming a medium for swains and assee matrimonially inclined. [Recently an advertisement for a mate was published, and the Col- yum is informed that the results were most happy. 'Stimulated perhaps by this achievement, another lonely heart, bachelor's, now seeks relief—see 'Wants," today's paper. Feeling it?, responsibility, the Ad- ance, via tae Colyum, has made nquiries concerning this aspirant and is "gratified to be able to in- orm marriageable maidens that he s worthy.

The Colyum offered first chance .selves conservatives call them or progres •sives, as the case mig.ht .be. Now we are beginning to use terms long used in Europe.

Second- ay they resorted to a subterfuge to avoid federal supervision. Mr. Bonnstetter may or may not lhave the right of it, but as both farmer and legislator he has a •right to be heard. WHY THE DELAY IN THE CORN-HOG PROGRAM! Delay in inauguration of the torn-hog program suggests either that it is desired to get the corn loan plan out of the way first or there is trouble somewhere to be ironed out. To secure a corn loan it is neces- aary to agree to sign the corn-hog reduction contract. 'Since the corn loan program is going over like a prairie fire, whereas the corn-hog plan alone was not received enthusiastically, it would seem to be good lary. Once in every generation thi country has to take a course of ed ucation in the science of money We are studying now the same les sons that-our fathers and grand fathers studied in 1893-6 and 1863 79. Great-grandpa studied them i the 1850's, and great-great-grand pa in the 1830's. They are techni cally difficult lessons, and many student never learns even the first principles, though he may think he rates a mark of perfect.

Answers strictly confidential; no publicity. No Josh about this,; all genuine and on the square. Careful, Boy; We Pipe Smokerg Dare Not Say Much. [Jarney's Peterson Patriot.] A news dispatch from Washington in the Sunday papers says that Mrs. F. iD. Roosevelt was guest of honor at a dinner (being given in Washington. Next to her sat Mrs. Rainey, wife of speaker of the house. Mrs. (Rainey it seems wanted to smoke, but was afraid the president's wife wouldn't like it. So when Mrs. Roosevelt became aware of the situation she leaned over to the hostess and asked her for a cigarette. The chronicler fails to tell us what brand was passed to the president's wife. However she took several puffs, and the wife of the speaker of the house, very grateful, then lit hers up and puffed away with quite evident enjoyment. Now isn't that nice! Add Neat Example of Joke Turned on Joker. [Indianola Record.] Mr. McCrady, speaking at Des Moines and ridiculing the opposition of Senator Dickinson to NRA, ;N CHRISTOPHER BEAN no new heights have been reached by either of our two supreme character actors. Marie Dressier and Lionel Barrymore give adequate accounts of themselves but they add no additional laurels to their long roster of screen successes. It is_ a satisfactory evening's entertainment—nothing more. This is a story about the Haggett family, New Englanders: an old- fashioned country doctor (Lionel Barrymore), his wife, .two daughters,'and the maid and housekeeper, Abby (Marie Dreasler). . .When the paintings of the late Christopher Bean, an old patient of the doctor, suddenly, bring a big price at a New York ar.t sale, there is a rush.to the artist's home town for caills on the old doctor, with whom three collectors bicker and bargain for paintings. It finally develops that Abby married the artist in his last illness, and is therefore entitled to his paintings. The greed and avarice which overtakes the kindly, mellow doctor, when he realizes that he has in his possession art treasures worth many thousands of dollars, is the central theme of this photoplay. But the action sags painfully towards the middle of the picture, after considerable momentum at the start. Too much time is consumed in trying to beat Abby out of a large portrait of herself which she is determined to keep in memory of her dead husband. Of rourse her marriage to the artist is a secret till the last two minutes, and it therefore provides a tremendous climax. Marie employs her full repertoire of stage tricks in the production— her shoulder-shrugs, her raised eyebrows, her second startled and significant "afterlook." And as usual, .there is a Pullman car scene, in which the ponderous Marie occupies an "upper" and steps on the neck of the male lower occupant. Marie ge'ts off some rather daring dialog in the opening scenes, but it is forgiven because she is "that way." Which leads us to ask why it is that what is heresy and treason in one man's mouth is op- thodox or patriotic in another's? "Being an old maid is a lot like these- full-length biographical films. Only a few have ever been successful, Edward E< Robinson's Silver Dollar being the most conspicuous. There are at least a dozen threads of interest to distract the muddled audience, and instead ot weaving into a rich beautiful pattern of Life they form a hopeless knotted ball of yarn too clumsy to handle, 'with 'strings top numerous ever to piece together into a finished production. • Meatpacker Nordholm certainly has his troubles in this picture— hief among them being a nagging, jestiferous, high strung wife, who :inally goes insane for no apparent reason except to make the suffer- ngs of Nordholm more heart-rend- 'having Marie; adenoids," philosophizes "it's inconvenient but seldom fatal". The weakest thing about Christopher Bean is the supporting cast, which ranges from mediocre to very bad. '"pHE (PACT THAT Charles <Laugh•1 ton looks exactly like Holbein's portrait of Henry VIII adds no little realism to the historical picture which Mr. Laughton makes spectac- plar by tremendous natural vitality. The Private Life of Henry Opinions of Editors told a good story about the Irish v ' ni is i ike a page torn from Eng . mother of 12 children who compli- ~ mented the priest's sermon on matrimony. "It was a wonderful sermon," said she, "but I wish to God I knew as little aJbout matrimony as he does!" We joined heartily in the laugh, but wished to God we knew as little about the crisis fac- ign the average Iowa business man as McGrady does.

Smith out of the demo- bered, but recollection of a when in unison we chanted day "the lish history—the bloody yet somewhat ridiculous tale of a muoh- married king. We see this ponderous, sensuous monarch pass from tempestuous maturity to doddering old age ir as sweeping a character portrayal as anything the talkies have given us. The picture comes to a splendid and dramatic climax in his marriage to Catherine Parr, in;not yet cold. ing. To put it briefly, besides being much too long, The World Changes works itself up to a momentous and. completely nerve-racking climax culminating in the death of Peter Nordholm. But by the time ;his tragic end comes, we are at home and comfortably in bed—11 o'clock being the deadline for all sood critics wihen' they sense stark tragedy stalking carelessly around. Another point against The World Changes—we have a queer quirk about connecting up the title with the subject matter of any book or play: we defy any human being to give us one logical, intelligent reason for the name. True, everything changes; but to add to the confusion of the picture everything apparently goes haywire in the process, which is a bit disconcerting. Before we close this inspired review, it might be well to mention casually, that Paul Muni (star of bhe chain-gang fugitive) takes the leading role and gives a satisfactory performance. For one thing, he is perhaps the screen's most gracefully aging man, which is fortunate, because he ihas more troubles than the patient, suffering Job Director Mervyn Le Roy really should have thrown in a few boils to make ihis suffering more acute The only thing we distinctly remember about the whole show is e^ rather stirring theme melody which accompanies the whirling hemisphere at frequent intervals throughout the production, denoting the passing of time. It is an intriguing melody.

There is, however, ground for suspicion that trouble in the corn- hog set-up cuts a figure. The tnon- -ey to put over the corn-hog program is to come from processing taxes, and that part of the plan haa seemingly not been working out satisfactorily. The processing idea was that the •packers would add the tax to their prices and make the consumer pay it. Then they would boost Jttices paid for hogs by that much. JBut hogs have gone down, not up, and in some quarters the 'blame is i>ut on the tax. A hitch of this kind would naturally have to receive attention from the AAA planners, and that may be "Why there is delay in the program. Of course it is not necessary to subscribe to either of these theories. The delay may be natural, or it may be owing to governmental led tape. Whatever the reason it is to be hoped that the thing will *e settled soon. Farmers must before Jong know how to plan their •operations for the coming 1 year. fSOTEBJVMENTS JffUST SPEND TO BRKAK DEPRESSIONS A great many observers view the ^government's spending program with alarm. They argue that a pay day must come and that in view of the times the government ought to •cut expenditures drastically instead of piling up a great debt. The Washington administration may be far out of touch with orthodox economics as regards the -money question, but it is accord •with economic theory as regards fcuge expenditures for public works in a time of depression.

Funuy Land Bank Business. Hampton Chronicle—Just about ten days ago the federal land bank approved a loan of $4,000 on a very fine, well improved 160 acre farm here, tout then decided that the loan could not be accepted because the owner was a little too old. Can you beat that? Sizing Up Francis G. Cutler. Hampton Chronicle—P. G.

Cutler is to the democrats what one Eickelberg, of Waterloo, is to the republicans. :It is hard to tell which is the biggest nut. Clyde Herring, the present democratic governor, will be the democratic nominee if he wants to make the race. There's Sound Sense in This. •Emmetsburg Democrat—It is fortunate for the democratic party that the gold issue has been forced to the forefront so early Roosevelt administration. in By the the time 1936 rolls around the heated controversy about monetary matters will long have subsided. Judging by all signs, we shall have reached normal conditions before the next general election will be held, and everything will be lovely for the party in power. What Are Constitutions For? Winterset Madisonian—The idea that the constitution of the United States is something to be upheld, protected, defended, and preserved in times of fair weather, but something that may be cast aside under the plea of emergency, has gained altogether too much sanction by those whose inclination is to follow to What!

When he finds her unfaithful he rises first to the heights of fury, then sinks back, a beaten man, to the depths of despondency as his Queen gives her life for her frailty. * His first wife, so the introduction tells us, was respectable, but Henry divorces her. Anne Boleyn dies on the scaffold, and the 'third, pretty, silly Jane Seymour, gives her life in bearing Henry a son. Anne of Cleves falls in love with the messenger whom the king sends and manages to appear so unattractive tha't the king actually plays cards with her on the bed the first night of their marriage. When she obligingly divorces him he marries the beautiful Catherine, and here (the picture reaches its climax in the searching study which Charles Laughton gives as the devoted husband of the one woman for whom he really cares. Mr. Laughton's .small, beady eyes, his'sensual mouth, and his aptitude for almost unconscious humpiygive the character of Henry VIII ;£ remarkable realism. When he^ sends his Queen to the arms of Jier lover at a ball, we recall ihis intelligent portrayal of the scheming, jealous husband in The Devil and the iDeep, one, pf the most skilful pieces of psychology the silver screen has shown us. This quality for humor is one of Mr. Laugfaton's most outstanding traits. As 'he watches the homely Anne of Cleves he remarks sadly to one of his ministers, "When. I think what I do for England!" But when he discourses at great length on. etiquette—at a banquet, surrounded by his court—he Ihimself is busily engaged at .tearing a capon apart with his fingers and throwing the bones over his shoulder in gluttonous delight. The Private Life of Henry VIII was produced in England with a typical English background and a cast of extremely capable actors. There is cruelty, tragedy, and a mellowing sadness in Mr. Laughton's splendid character study,. as we see the aged king, in the final scenes, still eating ferociously, yet dribbling his food over his beard, while his sixth wife, his children's nurse, wraps him in a blanket and leaves him alone. Henry V'I'H ranks as one of the best pictures of the year. 'TSHE WORLD CHANGES is one * of those screen "epics" with which ambitious directors toy every now and then.
