'EDUCATING SELF-RELIANCE OUT OF THE PEOPLE The Winnebago supervisors de- =cided to paint the courthouse as a JPWA project. They called in painters and accepted a bid at 75c an Tiour. "Work was begun. Then the <JWA butted in with its $1.20 skilled labor wage on other projects, "and the painters struck. Now Winnebago, hat in hand, wants to tap Uncle Sam's purse again. The painters, out of work, had toeen eager to take .the job at 75c In fact, considering the times, it •was good pay—$6 for an 8-hour <lay; pretty good pay for any kind •of times, one might say, more than •many employers of labor are realizing now. But painters are human. When they saw a chance to get $10.60 a day from a rich uncle they made no bones about breaking a contract to get it. The aftermath of bhe war has re- Tealed many startling effects, and among the worst is the letdown in private and public morale. The number of debtors who deliberately seek to avoid paying has become legion. Men whose fathers would Ihave thought breaking a contract a disgrace do it now almost as if proposes seems to be the -wise thing to do. The message asked legislation to give the government permanent ownership of all gold, including the enormous sums in the Federal serve (banks. In view of _ presenl policies that also seems wise. Certainly only the government ought to realize the profit arising from devaluation. T.he Reserve banks hold more than three and a half billions. As for the plan to cease coining gold and hold it only in bars for the settlement of international trade balances, it is only necessary to point to France, which lias long held gold in virtual sequestration so far as domestic use was concerned. In France you can exchange paper money for gold only in large sums, and then you get bullion, not coins, The President wants $2,000,000,000 of the profit on gold arising from depreciation to be set aside for the purpose of managing the dollar in foreign exchange. There is nothing new in this. (England Jias been doing it for a year or two—incidentally under the guidance o£ Doctor Sprague till Mr. Roosevelt called -him home. Altogether there does not seem to be much in the President's message to scare anybody—unless it be the crank monetary inflation- ists. For such of the latter as understand what they are talking about the message was rather cold comfort. The President revealed liimself as a hard money man, and there was not a thing to suggest that he has the slightest thought of resorting to greenbackery. TIMELY TOPICS Editor Ray S. iSperbeck, Swea City, has entered his 25th year as editor of the Herald, and A. L. Anderson, Ringslted, has ibegun his 22nd year as publisher of the Dispatch . The years have taught both it were praiseworthy. And the gov- i' h °w, and their papers are among ernment and the courts lead the |tlie best small-town sheets in Iowa way by dishonoring gold clauses and holding that states may impair •contracts. There may be colorable excuses in the government cases, where Ihere is no excuse for individuals, Suit average men are not educationally equipped to make .the distinction.

KOTHJJfG TO SCARE ANYBODY IX THE MESSAGE. In one oif the short, clear messages which have so far distinguished the New Deal administration, President Roosevelt let Congress and the country at least part way into his confidence Monday on the the corn hog contract to make the plan work. It begins to look like the old story of individual vs. mass interests, which has always kept farmers from uniting in a common program. Opinions of Editors Bunk Socialism on Way.

The president asked Congress to reduce the gold content of the dol- 3ar to not more than 60c. He has power .himself to do this under the Thomas Act, but evidently he prefers that Congress take a hand. This is at once a subtle compliment which will appeal to Senators and Representatives, and make for amiable working relations between the executive and Congress and a comforting assurance that Mr. Roosevelt is no dictator at heart and will not abuse dictatorial powers conferred on him for emergency uses. The President is not giving up his powers to reduce the gold content below 60c. He merely wants Congress to fix the upper limit at that figure, and he retains the pow- «r to reduce later to any figure down to 60c at his discretion. The 4slHn •» n *« ~i._1 '!• we're Estherville News—The corn market is being eyed sharply by those who have not applied for federal oans, and if the market fails to boom during the next 30 or 40 days there is likely to be a scramble for loans that will tie up the loan administration with last-minute work. Are Loans Coming: Back. Traer Star-Clipper — Probably alarmed at the volume of Omaha tederal land bank farm loans, several insurance companies out of the market for years-are again accepting loans at 5 per cent up to 50 per cent of current value of the land. So many have been borrowing on insurance policies that the companies have had no surplus to loan. Then some have taken over so many farms that needed improvements for which large a ums of cash were needed, it is encouraging to learn that loans on Iowa land can be had again from private sources as well as federal setups.

[Story City Herald.] Up at Algona they've got a bunch of editors who are either plumb lazy or exceedingly independent. Just think, they didn't get out a paper the week between Christmas and New Year's! That used to be a habit of small-town papers in years gone by, but we never heard of county seat weeklies doing ilt. Perhaps it wasn't laziness so much as a desire to go out and celebrate that animated the boys.

There is no field in dramatics_in which a wider divergence of opinion prevails than in musical comedy. Everyone seems to have a well defined preference for a particular type. There are those who have gone to Be Mine Tonight as many as 20 times; but there are others who favor such extravaganzas as Footlight Parade and Golddiggers, while still others like the rough-and-tumble antics of Wheeler and Woolsey. Some music- cales are difficult to place in any category, as, perhaps, Going Hollywood. Comparison in the present case might be made to Lilian Harvey's two previous successes, both of vhich were enjoyed more than I Am Suzanne by this critic. They vere My Weakness and My Lips Betray. Based on merit, however, he choice must .go to this latest vehicle of Miss Harvey. Another factor enters the present discussion, and that is your weakness" for marionettes, cer- ainly a fad otf late. The. Century f Progress showed plainly the rend of the times for this particu- ar style of dramatics. There were, lowever, too many marionettes in Am_ Suzanne to suit us; and while he big St. Moritz snow scene from n actual stage production reduced o a miniature marionette presen- ation was a marvel of ingenuity and realism, yet, after the novelty vears off, just what have you left? Lilian Harvey is not a handsome actress, and her figure is inclined o be slender to the point oif skinniness; but somehow she has the lontinental faculty for pantomime md emotional quality which place ler in the front ranks of light mus- cal entertainment. Her voice is not particularly mellow and <pleas- ng, yet it is certainly superior to .hat of .Ruby Keeler, who has star•ed in musical shows of late. Gene Raymond was a wise choice 'rom a physical standpoint, but his singing is not good. The rest of .he cast is just so-so. I Am Suzanne is a brand-new picture, so we ire breaking "critical ground"; we lave no so-called precedents. A Ted Healey short embellished the first show Sunday, but was withdrawn from subsequent performances because of the length of the program. This was unfortunate, because our hero and his "aithful stooges got off some pretty fast comedy work — if you care for that type of stuff. TOOTHING BUT THE basic plot •'•^ idea and a single sentence of Noel Coward's Design for Living remains in the screen version ol this daring Broadway success. Rewritten with sparkling vivacity by Ben Hecht, and ibrilliantly directed by Ernst Lubitsch, .the cinema Design for Living is dviested of sex (that is, most of it) and transformed into a flippant, sophisticated comedy full of clever lines and innocuous (rather innocuous) situations. The basic idea referred to above concerns the love of two men for one woman, and vice versa; in other words, this is the eternal triangle with a slightly different slant As the trailer aptly puts it, "Tom loves Gilda, George loves Gilda Gilda loves Tom, Gilda loves George— figure that out". For purposes of the screen, a happier quartet of actors coulc scarcely be imagined than Frederick March as Tom, Gary Cooper as Quite strongly today; In rags we are dressin', With cheap food we're messin', On our nerves it is 'stressin'— 'Do take it away!

"It will be a gala day for you," says a lady to Groucho. "A gal a day is enough lor mej" replies Groucho, "1 don't think I could handle any more." "Let's take up the tax," says the prime minister.

Both March and Cooper stand for types in the cinema, and Miss Hopkins has just enough of the lure of the flesh to lend plausibility to the situation. Mr. Horton, as typical 100 per cent business man who thinks and loves in terms of his advertising business, is tremendous. When Gilda brings matters to a head, after she has married the booby Plunket to become a social butterfly, she voices the opinion of her audience in this catchy Hecht tidbit, "I'm tired of being a trademark married to a slogan." And so the .three—Tom, George, and Gilda—leave the advertising business to Plunket while they go back to Paris—and, shall we say, their Art? Perhaps we should. There was little comedy in the original Noel Coward play; it was a dramatic situation, dramatically handled. But such proceedings are not fit fare for adolescent cinema- goers and curiously, with entirely different shadings of meaning, the screen adaptation is delightful for its fresh, effervescent humor and the exceedingly subtle direction of Mr. Lubitsch. His touch is everywhere. He is the master of "closed doors"—imagination is always more potent than reality. When Tom and George clean up their garret, preparatory to a visit by Gilda, and sweep the debris under a chair, Mr. iLubitsch does not forget to move the chair and expose the villainy. He is master of his art.
