KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE). ALQONA. IOWA PAGE FOUR AS SECOND CLASS matter December 31, IMS, at the ^oitoffioe at Algona, Iowa, under the mot of March 2, 1879.

THE NEWSPAPER CODE AND THE SUBSCRIPTION PRICE The newspaper code has not yet fteen approved, though it has been an the president's hands six weeks. It is not known what is holding it up, but a plausible theory is that the president has been too busy •with the money question to consid- it. Meanwhile rumors going the rounds among newspapers about -what the code will contain relative to newspaper subscriptions may be «f public interest. Thus Roy A. Jarnagin, whose Peterson Patriot i teells regularly at ?2 a year but has I cf late been sold at a dollar aa » concession to the depression, says: "This will be our last dollar offer. When the newspaper code is signed by the president it will be -against the law to sell a newspaper at less than its regular subscription price." If the code carries such a provision—and other information appears to indicate that it will — then Mr. Jarnagin is quite right when he says that it will be against the law to sell a subscription at than the advertised price, for approved the code will be law. Subscribers to country newspa- ipers may think it is strange law, and they will not be alone in that •opinion, for manf if not most coun- which would be known on its face for exacbly what it is. Everybody who was paying taxes 20 years ago will remember the levy for capitol improvement. That was an emergency levy, and for some years it appeared on every tax receipt. (By the same token every taxpayer was watching that item and expecting its ultimate •disappearance. That is the method which ought to have been followed in the case of the emergency relief appropriation. The fatal thing about the scheme the senate has endorsed is that it leads the way to other raids on the funds to be raised from the new sources of revenue, and not only that tut in effect conceals what is 'being done. All that the average taxpayer will .know is that a way to find new revenue was adopted but for a reason he has forgotten the promised relief in lessened property taxes is not what he expected. ill is well to remember that in legislative eyes there are always emergencies, and that if tapping the new revenue for an emergency is now allowed it will be only too easy to do it again and again til at last the relief which tax revision was intended to bring about becomes nothing but an empty dream At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H, C. Plays reviewed this week—> Gallant Lady Fugitive Lovers Hi, Nellie A TIMELY TOPICS "While Lieut. Gov. Kraschel still imagined himself cock of the democratic walk in Iowa he demanded the resignation of Senator (Dickinson. The charges were political, and there was no question of criminal malefeasance. Now the lieutenant governor is under criminal indictment. "Who should resign? Not in a generation has it been events on the national stage crowd out in the public mind what is hap- pennig at Des Moines. By the time one has digested the all-absorbing daily news from Washington there isn't enough energy left to get in- try newspaper publishers will terested in what a mere legislature agree tnth them. j s doing. Under modern conditions $2 a year is a fair price for a well edited country newspaper, and less represents a real sacrifice on the ipart of the publisher; but when the publisher knows that the bulk -of his subscribers are compelled to sacrifice too, and that many cannot afford to take his paper except at a cut, what justification can there "be for arbitrary authority to prevent him from taking the necessities of the situation into account? It scarcely seems that General Johnson can know more about •what is good for him and his people than he does himself. True, a newspaper can comply "with the code by changing its regular subscription price, but anyone •who has ever been in the business knows that while it is easy to cut an established subscription price it is difficult to raise it again when Tiormal times return. It is for that reason that country newspapers -everywhere have kept the regular jprice in their editorial "flags" •while conceding cuts •depression. during the The objective at Washington is to raise prices for what publishers as well, as others have to buy, and -the publishers naturally want to be in a position to return to the normal subscription price when the time comes. This they know will he done much easier if their subscribers have all along had visible understanding that cuts were for the duration of the depression only. In this connection there is a significant fact that few allow for -when subscription prices of country newspapers are in question, and this is that no matter how high the .prices of goods the publisher must Ibuy from others rise he is himself under a limitation imposed by custom. iFor people will pay only a customary price for a country newspaper no matter how flush :the times may be. Though few have ever stopped to recognize the fact, this has been illustrated twice within 20 years. The ?2 rate for such papers as the Advance was established before the •war, but no paper in that class Jater dared ask for more than the customary ?2 a year even when print paper was costing more than lour^ times what it costs now and •publishers had to pay highly in- Hated prices for everything they ate and wore. Again in the flush times of 1929 and prior years no country paper dared charge more than the customary $2. No one ever gives country publishers credit for this. The plain fact is that codes for •small Business units are not only unnecessary but an arbitrary, unjustifiable interference with purely local operations which works against retailer and customer alike They may be well enough for great «rganizations with whose welfare the fortunes of the whole country are closely knit, but for unit; whose operations are limited to irural community they are nothing short of an imposition and an al around nuisance. THE THKEE MILLION RAID ON THE NEW TAX BILL. _ In his communication elsewhere an today's Advance in defense of the •state Farm iBureau Federation's «hange of front on tax reform for- aner representative Jensen remarks Hopelessly that when the legislature is through the relief from tax- Jation will be naught. According to yesterday's Des JMomes Register the senate Tuesday made a start towards fulfilling the prediction by voting the first $3,000,000 of receipts from the new tax bill to cover the same sum recently appropriated to match -«ne million federal contribution for emergency poor relief. That, of course, will reduce by W.000,000 the income in taxes -which it was intended to apply as •relief from property taxation Granting that the $3,000,000 am- iropnation was necessary, the fact remains that to take it out of revenue expected to be dedicated to re- fluction of the property tax burden as a poor way to go about it emer e«icy appropria- the money should be rais- a specific emergency levy A few weeks ago the Civil Works) Administration was receiving general commendation for a great job done efficiently in a hurry. Now it is shocking to find that it was honeycombed with graft, not at the top but at the bottom. This is admitted by the administrator himself. No wonder that the president wants to get rid of the CWA by May 1. The legislature is now in its 14th week, and the end is not in sight. But why Governor Herring or anybody else thought it would quit by Christmas is a mystery. You can't expect a legislature to tackle halij a 'dozen major questions and settle; them in two or three weeks. And. the Iowa legislature does not obey Governor Herring as congress obeys the President. You will hear a lot in the next few months about the late $30,000 CBrookings report on revamping state government in Iowa. It passed away and was buried shortly after the legislature convened. But Governor Herring's opponents are already digging up the cadaver for use as Exhibit A in this year's state) political campaign. The newspapers which were opposed to Governor Turner before and during his term of office are igain making political capital for lim by attacking the things for vhich he stands. They have their own selfish reasons which o course are not mentioned but are pretty well understood. This is a case, if there ever was one, when knocks are boosts. Opinions of Editors What a Year Has Brought. Livermore Gazette—In a recen speech in Cleveland, Senator Dick inson, of Algona, said: "A yea ago, if I had $100 in gold in in pocket, I was a law abiding citizen if I perchance had a pint of whis key I was a criminal. Today, if have the whiskey, I am a law abid ing citizen; but if I have the gol I am a criminal violating the law, The statement is quaint enough I be worth repeating, and is un doubtedly as true as it is quaint. You, Too, Must Help Pay. Knoxville Journal—If the entir net income of those in the $10,000 year class and higher were to b confiscated, the ordinary budget o the government would still lack billion dollars of being in balanc And the inevitable conclusion c the whole matter is that the littl fellows are going to pay the bi lions of doHars the government i now spending trying to bolster u an artificial business recovery. Time May Vindicate "Dick." Editor W. A. MaoArthur in Bur Monitor—This writer has an un comfortable feeling that the pre: ent administration is storing up big bag of trouble. Whether it wi break before the next presidentia election remains to be seen. Sen ator Dickinson might be in a pos tion to say "I told you so." Un doubtedly he is honestly convince that the policies he criticizes ar mistakes. It isn't hard to cook u a semblance of prosperity by bo rowing huge sums of -money i spend creating jobs. But that can go on indefinitely. Then what? Old-Age Pensions Scored. Humboldt Independent — Ther is a determined move on foot fo old-age pensions. Why? Wh should the state pledge itself old-age pensions? Why must man spend every penny he earn during his life? Why put a prem lum on carelessness and reckles expenditure? What are we comin to, anyway? Have the days c prudence and foresight come to a end? Are the ways of thrift an industry to be cast aside? If a hu man being has lived a life o thoughtless abandon, or if he ha been unlucky in the way of life why should he not be recorded sim ply as a dependent? MORE APPROPRIATE title for Ann (Harding's latest pic ture The Gallant Lady, might be The Men in Her tJfe, to paraphras Otto Kruger's late effort in thi direction. This is essentially i woman's picture. In fact we have yet to hear from a feminine cine matic who was not all ga-ga aboul this tale of love, as portrayed bj the virginal-looking Ann. For this reason alone to criticize The Gal lant Lady is to light the fuse in a barrel of blasting powder, and then sit calmly on the barrel ; How may we approach our task in a gentlemanly manner? We see Sally Wyndham first bid- ling good-bye to her lover, as he akes off on a trans-continental light. In a few moments, his ilane crashes to the earth in a bal! if flame, and that is the end over No. 1. We next see the melancholy Sally sitting in a rain- renched park where she meets the erelict Dan mmediately (Clive Brook), who obtains employment or her in an interior decorator's tudio, and incidentally falls in ove with her. Whether she loves Dan seems doubtful, relying now n feminine reactions. When she oes to Italy to decorate a chapel, Jie meets lover No. 3 in the per- on of Count Mario. And now to ather up the scattered threads of ur tangled romance. Sally has had a baby by her first iver, and the child has been, dopted by Philip Lawrence (Otto ruger). So, you see, all that is :cessary to please the ladies (God ess 'em) is to get the cute younger (Dickie Moore) and the hand- me Otto Kruger into the picture, ow this seemingly impossible cir- umstance is worked out we leave the tender mercies of the magic Iver screen, which does miracles ith the ease of everyday occur- nce. Sally meets .Deeds (the boy) at a otel desk in a city of two million eople, an opportunity which only movies provides. Once mother eets son only a few obstacles re- ain, and these are quickly brush- d aside while feminine hearts flut- r in a fury of pent-up emotions, in't love g-g-grand! Ann Harding, by a demure de- eanor, is able to assume roles hich would promptly be censored ' they were taken by ladies of ore voluputous charm. To put it i another way, virtue in Ann is ce in Jean, or "what is poison is nother man's food. Ann has become adept in the gene art of repartee, but she over- oes it a trifle in efforts to seem ay and nonchalent. When she sud- enly meets Dan, after a separa- on of five years, she says, casu- lly and Jovially, "You fiend, you wretch—you old bum-why didn't ou write'me"? ".Didn't you get my etter from Singapore?" he asks No, did you write?' she parleys No, tout I will next time," he ounters. Hooey, my dears, pure unadulterated hooey! HAVE HAD PICTURES with a plot on trains (Shanghai Express) ; on submarines (Devil and he Deep); on ocean ships (Luxury liner); in hotels (Grand Hotel); on airplanes (Hell's Angels). Now Fugitive Lovers comes along to give us a continental bus adventure. The plot of this production is so completely unplausible, so utterly beyond even the faintest pall of reason, that it is really an entertaining bit of fantasy. We see, in the beginning, a great Greyhound bus starting a trans- heights of stardom. We like thisi Farrell woman. She raises a mean eye-brow. Melvyn (Leroy has done a great piece of directing in Hi (Nellie. Thd photography is perfect, and we get our first glimpse of the merry-go- round night club, with a circular, revolving bar. Here's a new idea —a bar that actually rotates. You'd never know whether it was the drink or the motion. But the real secret of the success of this show is skilful manipulation of drama and humor, a constantly changing aspect from the noisy, busy newspaper office to the gay, glamorous night club> thence to the lonely, dark cemetery. And interspersed, the many laughs which only such dry artists of the humorous as New Sparks' and vivacious Glenda Farrell bring to the screen. Honestly, folks, here is a real entertainment bet. What a pity they dubbed it Hi Nellie, when there are a million catchy titles that would have audience appeal. The close-ups of Paul Muni are the most effective we have ever seen. Here's a master of facial expression and the lowered syllable, the despairing laugh and the curt grunt, an actor who shows the "nfluence of his years of stage training and his versatility in de- Dieting types. This won't be the best picture of 1934, but from a purely entertainment angle it will take its place as one of the ten best, it's too new .0 get the critic reaction, but it pleases this fussy one. Jensen Protests Editorial on Farm Bureau Somersault WHEN MYERS WAS ON H, S, SQUAD HERE A "column" on the sports page if 'the Mason City Globe-Gazette eatured news of the appointment if Dennis Myers as line football oach. at Yale university aa follows: There's -a Mason Cityan who is specially qualified to say "I knew dm when ..." as the name of Denny Myers, newly appointed line oach at Yale university, is men- ioned. That's Clayton "Chick" Sutherland, high school football and junior college basketball coach at Mason City. * • * ' Myers played three years, 1923, 1924, and 1925, on Sutherland-coached teams at Algona high school, climaxing liis seasons with recognition as all- state! end in the last year that he spent on high school gridirons. • * * iForiner (Representative J. -H. Jensen, of Seneca, writes: I read your editorials every week, and I generally agree with you. However, the one you toad a couple of weeks ago relative to the 'Farm Bureau's alleged change of attitude on the tax question did not "set" well with me. I feel sure that you have been misled somewhat. Francis Johnson, former speaker and co-author with Senator Patterson of the income tax biH when Patterson first started the-fight for tax reform, is chairman of the Farm Bureau legislative committee, and probably he had more to do with formulating the F. B. bill than anyone else. Francis Johnson has always worked for legislation that would help the farmer and other common people, and if you knew him as I know him you would never think he had changed bis mind on the tax question. Looking at the three tax bills from a long range I am inclined to think that the F. B. bill is the fairest of all. I would myself >be in favor of raising all taxes from net income, but there is not much chance of getting that from the present state administration. The F. B. bill is not a gross income tax bill, contrary to claims of its enemies. 'It proposes a graduated tax on business which would reach practically the same result as a net income tax. I doubt much that Patterson will vote for Senate File No. 1. That bill proposes to raise the bulk of •revenue from a flat 2 per cent retail sales tax. This would largely offset any benefit that common people would get from the net income tax. I think that Dan Turner will be reelected governor. The. Kraschel publicity will put the skids under Herring & Co. Talk about economy! Already $225,000 for a special session doing nothing that could not be done at a regular session. When they are all through we shall have just as much taxes as before. * AGO BUS IN CLUB HAS NESS MEET LAST THURSDAY trek westward from There is a motley as- of passengers, chief continental New York, sortment among whom are an harassed actress (Madge Evans) and a pugilistic and persistent lover from whom Madge is attempting to escape (Just why she takes a bus is not clear, but we presume to give the story a locale). Ted 'Healey (who incidentally steals the show) handles the comedy end with devastating accuracy, and his stoogies, less conspicuous, are also in the background. Passing a penitentiary (at exactly the psychological moment for a prison break) the bus picks up a fugitive (iRobert Montgomery,) who manages to get himself enamored by our heroine. It takes a mighty blizzard in which Robert .sacrifices himself to save a school- bus load of half-frozen children to bring about his pardon and his ul- the ambitious Madge. That this is one of the goofiest screen whangdoodles in many a moon cannot be denied; but the photography is good, and the action is swift. Customers who are looking for something different, and are not too critical about the plausibility of situations, may find here a pleasant evening's entertainment. There is nothing subtle about it, everything is sacrificed for th« •sake of the plot, with the result that Fugitive Lovers emerges as a kind of a Horatio Alger drama, where events are "pulled in by the hair," to use an old German proverb. A colored short, Girl Trouble, and a clever Betty Boop completed a well-balanced but poorly attended program. MOTWITHSTAN'DING its nega- 1 ^ live title, Hi Nellie recalls the old days of -Four Star Final (or was it Five?). For here's a corking good newspaper yarn, with a trio of swell actors in the persons of Paul Muni, Glenda Farrell, and Ned Sparks. A bit melodramatic, but deliciously punctuated with, flashing bits of comedy and humor, 'Hi Nellie comes as one of those surprise offerings which infrequently catch a critic off guard. And what a nice Job this Paul Muni does with the part of a managing editor who, forced to edit the Lonely Hearts column, stumbles onto a murder mystery and gets back to the top of the heap. It would seem that the newspaper stories had about run their course, when along comes this epic, packing a wicked wallop and skyrocketing our little Glenda to the 1 He had other talents. Playing basketball was his winter sports occupation at Algona, and in the balmier days of spring he tossed the discus and shot, as well as running the relays on the 1 track team. * * * In addition, Myers was a champion high school orator.

Borchardt was elected vice president; T. 'L, Larson, reelected secretray; T. H Holmes, reelected treasurer.

Five-Year Plan Talked. •A five-year plan of improvement who was to return to Algona in the fall for his senior year in high school! * * * Among the boys of the grid team, lie was more the leader. Algona's team of one season was undefeated . . . the players were hard and good. They trained. Captain Peterson, af- tcrward a Wavy grid ace, vras given to moralizing on 'the advantages of training, but it , wouldn't be a bad bet that Denny Myers' argument was more convincing. * * * After Peterson had delivered his sentiments in a locker room session one afternoon, Myers loomed up, all 197 pounds of him, and thundered, "The first guy that I catch breaking training — I'm gonta smack! And I want you all to get fthat!"' 'TTo cairl 14- -mn-Hg r»intllP- — carry the general idea. « • * He caught one of the squad, later. And he hadn't been lest- ing. * * * Myers worked at jobs outside of school through prep days and through his time at the University of Iowa. «e played quite a lot of football there, too. As he wrote to Coach Sutherland, after being in action at every place tout center in his first year at the university; "Soon as I learn to snap the ball I'll have the whole course." * * * Myers had up and down season at the university, but was among the greatest, especially at guard, where he received all- American recognition in 1928. That Hawkeye team was accorded the Big Tten championship under Uie Dickinson rating system. * * * Freddie 'Roberts, blond giant from Knoxville, was another Iowa lineman at that time. iHe knew the Myers system of football—hit the other fellow first. » * * The two gridders opposed each other in the professional game afterward. Freddie wondered whether Myers still stuck to his old plan of hitting his opponent before the opponent could get started. While he was wondering, he( found out, * * * That's the system that the Yale linemen will probably use from now on as long as Denny Myers sticks with the Elis. was brought up, and after discus sion was -referred to the board.
