Postofficcs^ year J2.BO TWO DOLLARS A HEAD TAX FOB OLD AGE PENSIONS In his legislative letter this •week 'Representative Bonnstetter remarks' that many legislators •seem to have lost the Hair foi economy which possessed them s •year ago. Mr. Bonnstetter and Senator Patterson seem to be among the number, judging from their votes on the old age pension If there "was any public demand t>f consequence for this bill the 4act has not been apparent at this 1 -distance from the gilded dome un <Jer which legislators elected on Tigid economy platforms hatch new ways to spend money. Few supposed that this pension bill had «. chance, and there has therefore l>een almost no public discussion This bill is a .first-class example of how new burdens are added to the shoulders of taxpayers. If it "(becomes law it will add one more Tunnecessary salaried state official *o the horde we already have, il will add another state commission at ?10 per diem for each member and it will saddle the expenses of n. new and wholly useless county Jboard on taxpayers to do what the Aoard of supervisors is far better equipped to do. It is astonishing that in these tight times, when the strictest •economy ought to be the watch- •vrord for every legislator, only two -senators and seven representatives stood out against this new raid on the pocketbooks of taxpayers. When Senator Patterson enterec ^politics he ran against Representative Lee O. Wolfe, of Titonka •who was a candidate for the customary second nomination, and in that campaign many votes, per- 3haps enough to he decisive, were cast against Mr. Wolfe because he liad voted for a dog tax. And that in times not comparable to our present situation. If this pension hill, as revamped 3)y the House, becomes law the average family in which there are three adults—father, mother, and one child over 21—will pay a new 56 tax at ?2 a head. Many families will pay up to $10 or more, depending oa the number of children above 21 who are still at home. Apparently the revised house bill does offset the present poll tax, ljut newspaper reports do not make plain whether this is the 50c county poll tax or the $3 road poll tax which can be paid in either cash or labor. In either event nothing las appeared to show how the loss of the offset revenue is to be made tip. Probably higher general levies is the answer. Why a state commission at snember per diem of $10 is considered necessary is a question on which no light has been thrown; nor why a state supervisor at $3,000 a year is required. The necessity of a new county board plus its expenses and the inevitable costs of supervision, including •doubtless a salaried overseer, is mot apparent either. What will there be for this state commission, •its salaried investigator, the county board, and the board's overseer to do that could not be done better at vastly less expense by the board -of supervisors and the county auditor? There has been no opportunity outside the legislature for discussion of these questions and arrival at decisions, ill certainly looks as if lobbyists had done a fast and clever job. They have known enough to keep out of the public eye and spring the works when no- Sjody was looking. Some of the legislators who fell for them may Siear from it when this new head tax becomes effective. If there ever was a legislature pledged to no new schemes of taxation that do not replace existing laxes, this Is it. And that goes for worthy as well as unworthy caus- «s, for under present conditions the -state, like its hard-pressed citizens, must do without many things that would be desirable in times when they can be afforded. This legislature was called into extra session for objects plainly laid down by the governor and understood by the people. There was ?io mention of old age pensions or ether new tax schemes in the governor's call. Quite the contrary, for the call, so far as questions of taxation -were concerned, was based only on the need of revision and reform to reallocate taxation and ease the iburden on property. No Indian giving by which the legislature took away with one 'hand whaMt had given with the other was in the minds of the people, and to the extent that this has been done unnecessarily the people have been betrayed. In order that no injustice may fce done, Senator Patterson and Representative Bonnstetter are invited to explain publicly why they chose to support this scheme for Jiew taxation at an extra session called to revise taxation down- Awards. THE GAME NOW IS TO BEAT THE NEW SALES TAX. How state sales taxes work out as regards goods which can be delivered by mail or express direct to customers from outside the etate is well illustrated by what has been happening in the cigaret line. _The state, as well as the national government has been collecting a stamp tax on cigarets. In Iowa a package costs I8c, or a carton of ten packages $1.60. The Iowa stamp tax is 2c. In Minnesota cigarets retail at 13c a package, or two for a quarter, and the carton price is $1.25. Hence many lowans mail-order cigarets from Minnesota. Cigarets from the Twin Cities are laid, down tere at fl.21 the carton. Now comes a circular from an Omaha concern, evidently inspired t>y passage of the Iowa sales tax, though the sales tax does not apply. This is advertised as a "retailer's confidential net price liet." The significant information is added: 'Wo need to keep a list of the cigare'ts you order when you buy from us. We do not show our records." Lucky Strikes are offered in 60- carton lots at JH.10, and Camels at $1.11; Chesterfields in 25 to 50- carton lotsi at $1.12; Old Golds in 10 to 25-carton lots at $1.14; Ral- eighs in one to 10-carton lots at $1.16. There are offers on a dozen other makes, One of these circulars was sent to the editor, which suggests that the Omaha concern is not making inquiry whether orders come from actual retailers. The (business of beating taxation is as old as taxation itself. No state can make stamp or sales taxes effective against purchasers who can buy outside the state and have delivery made by mail or express. TIMELY TOPICS General Johnson now wants to reduce the work week from 40 ihours to 36 hours. Cheerful news indeed for small-time employers who could hardly eke out a living under the old 54-hour regime; particularly cheerful for all who live on farmers whose purchasing power is still only SO per cent of pre- Of all the extraordinary powers the president ihas sought the power to reduce tariffs 60 per cent in trades with foreign countries is least to be criticised. This country's most vital need at present is foreign outlets, but they cannot be got unless we are prepared to give other countries a fair deal. Whether it proves anything worth While may be questionable hut certainly the Caret Garret article in last week's Saturday Evening Post on the Remarkable contrast between President Roosevelt's pre-election monetary stand anc his record in office is hot reading Democrats, it is understood, are permitted to cuss loudly after each paragraph. The army mail service got off to a bad start, but probably it will do better with experience. Nevertheless there seems to be ground for suspicion that Postmaster General Farley acted with undue haste and in some cases most unjustly when he cancelled all private contracts taking no care to separate sheep from goats. Taxpayers will do well to scrutinize with care the lengthy list of new legislative appropriations set out in [Representative Bonnstetter's letter. Already nearly a third of the $20,000,000 in new revenue intended to lift the property tax burden by that much has been sidetracked. Not all the tax spenders do business at Washington, it appears. One-sixth of the six millions in new appropriations likely to come put of this legislative extra session is for old age pensions. Figure Kossuth's" share at one-sixtieth, or $16,666. This is $-1384 a month, or $30 a month pensions for 46 pensioners. It takes no great fore- sig'ht to see that ultimately every dollar of it will be just that much added poor expense to be raised by axation. Opinions of Editors Our National Tax Spree.

The Colyum Let's Not be too D—d gerionl S HOUiDD THE STOMACH be thrust out, expanded, or drawn in, contracted, when pronouncing the verb "is"?—Ward Barnes in Eagle Grove Eagle's Inhuman Interest Column. Mr. Barnes was giving a class in. school a lecture or something on pronunciation, and that question was fired at him. He wants to know. Let Mr. Barnes reply— "Well, children, as a general rule I don't think it would be nice to stick out your stomach very far at anybody when pronouncing anything. You see, the stickee mighl think you were a little forward, so to speak, which it is plain you would be if you stuck it out noticeably. "Then, again, also ' anyhow, il isn't your so-called stomach thai you stick out, but your belly; and you mustn't think belly isn't a nice word, children, for it's a perfectly good dictionary word to which silly-minded people have attachec a prudish significance that doesn't at all belong to it. 'IHowsomever, if you must compromise with prudery you can do it by using abdomen instead of belly But here 1 must caution you on pronunciation, for you don't put the emiphasis on the 'ab,' but on the 'do,' which you pronounce as in 'dome.' "And now, children, if you will excuse me, we will take Up the pronunciation of 'is' at our next session. I shall have to practice this a 'little, and since, aa you perceive I have only a peewee abdomen myself, it will be necassary for me to call in a few friends who have real ,bel—(beg .pardon—abdomens and see how they do it." •I WISH I was going to Thornton's dance, but I will be out of town. Who is he going to invite 3 If all are as busy as me, he will only have a small party.—Offered last week for correction. Prom an unexpected number of replies, all correct, this one is chosen—• "I wish I were going to Thornton's dance, but I shall be out of town. Whom is he going to invite? If all are as busy as I, he will have only a small party." This came from a hard-working Algona mother of children in both high school and the grades, and she added— "Two high school pupils could find only three of the five errors. A little seventh grader gave me the reason for 'shall'." So it took a little seventh grader to discover and correct the only hard one!

At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H. G. Plays Reviewed this week-—! Bolero The Last Round Up These Thirty Years Fashions of 1984 B OLERO IS ONE of those gaudy, tinseled, ultra-modern cinemas' which epitomize, perhaps, our love for the sensational, the bizarre, the exotic; on the one hand the despair of censors, on the other the delight of the sensuous-minded in adult audiences. In a way, it .portrays the seamy side of life, Ibut with neat contrast, from the coal mine to the footlights, or from the depths to the heights. (iRaoul (George Raff) accomplishes this feat with seeming ease, though 'humble beginnings serve to harden his heart against everything save his ultimate ambition—' i. e. to become an internationally famous dancer. As long as Raoul sticks to his purpose not to mix business with pleasure success seems assured. When he finally succumbs to love in the person of Helen (Carole Lombard) his flight to stardom is arrested. His .enlistment in the war as a publicity stunt, the marriage of Helen to a British nolbleman, and his return to find everything changed is a dramatic denouement we scarcely expect to find in so fragile a piece of hokum as this. As a whole, hovyever, Bolero ranks as .good entertainment. Carole 'Lombard is effective in some scenes, quite useless in others. Her voice is an almost exact counterpart of Ann Harding's, a circumstance which takes away from our enjoyment of the role, because the likeness seems slightly affected. Miss Lomibard has taken on enough weight to enhance her blonde beauty, especially in the role of the fascinating dancing partner of the swarthy Raff. One of" the most beautiful scenes in (Bolero is contributed by none other than our now-famous fan- dancer, THE Sally Rand of The Century of Progress. As we viewed her classic dance, truly an artistic spectacle, we could not (but regret that a tiling of such beauty can be vulgarized by meddlesome censors' and pestiferous bluenoses. Here is something genuinely aesthetic, beautiful, appealing to the finer senses, but that has been dragged in the gutters of suggestiveness till it has lost its real charm. Fan dancers may come and go but there is only one Sally Rand. When she speaks, however, the charm is gone—she is just another ambitious (blonde, far out beyond her dramatic depths. PARAMOUNT STUMBLED (we'll •T never give" these picture producers credit for anticipating a real screen "hit"—they've made too many miscues in the past) into a really clever idea when it combined the big radio song hit of the Follies, The Last Roundup, with a smashing Zane Grey western. Oh we know well this isn't "highbrow" entertainment, and you're probably fed up on all the crooners who have been foisting the haunting melody into your suffering ears from your dials, but never- iheless and notwithstanding ihere is a real, honest-to-goodness evening's enjoyment, that is, if you go in for "westerns". Heading the cast is Randolph Scott, clean, clear-eyed youngster who packs a mean wallop and rides ike .lightning. When he ogles the 'air heroine ((Barbara Adams) you nstinctively feel that the young ady is completely within her rights to "fall," hook, sinker, ar.d all. And good old Monte iBlue, with .hat malicious glint in his eyes — what an ideal villain he makes as eader of the Border Legion, a band of outlaws! Here is action, folks, combined with the alluring- fascination of the plains, the sweeping vistas of wide-open places, with their backgrounds of fleecy clouds and towering crags. There is something fresh, clean, and inspiring about the better class of "westerns"—a harking back to he old morality plays in which virtue, the homely virtues, if you please, triumph over the baser, more insidious passions—a woman's honor, sympathy, human compassion, tenderness, the whole list of qualities lost since we began our march towards the goals of Money and Power. Here we see the seemingly hard- learted villain tenderly nurse a fal- en companion under the blue canopy of the western skies till he (the companion) asks to hear for the last time The Last Round Up. A tear trickles down Monte's cheek as he watches his comrade slip off into another world. These are lessons for all of us couched in the rough and ready terms of the great West of 50 years ago. Yes, (Paramount has scored a signal success in The Last Round-Up •let's have more of 'em. WE WAGED A LOSING battle • ' against a frenzied mob of 200 people in the lobby of the Call last week Wednesday night at the second show of Fred Kent's Ford pow- pow, till he resorted to trickery and slipped in via a side-entrance. After all, a critic is entitled to some privileges! This was probably one of the most successful private promotions «ver attempted in Algona, with five crowded houses, proving that the public is movie-minded, especially when attendance is free. These Thirty Years is the most palatable advertising cock-tail we have ever taken, a rather subtle story of the last three decades o£ transportation, with special emphasis on the Ford. But, while the thing is purely a promotion proposition the cast and plot are comparable with the best we see in pictures, and the "con" talk is so cleverly introduced that it gives no offense. Every sales resistance is ably met in the episodes which form the basic plot of the picture "Why I wouldn't drive a -Ford!" says the millionaire matron, disdainfully to a salesman. "Mrs. Dusenberry (presumably in the same social set) is driving her third one this glibly"'" rePlieS ' Ule salesman "What? Is Mrs. Dusenberry driv- ng a Ford!" exclaims the matron in surprise. "Of course," is the answer. And get the intimation, please, that it is fashionable for the rich to buy not ONE Ford, but three or four in a season. Clever, isn't it? And then the following scene, in which a farmer is convinced tfliat he could really MAKE money by spending it on a new 'Ford. Yes, These Thirty Years opens up a fertile field for national advertising, comlbining in this caae the educational features of transportation with the more strictly entertainment elements of a love-plot interspersed with sly references to the Ford. After all, it isn't so much whether it's meatballs or roast beef so Jong as it's appetizingly served. Mr. Kent is to Ibe congratulated on his enterprising spirit. After all it's something to bring 2,000 (peopU to Algona. Other merchants may pick up some iloose nickles! OF 1934 is one o •T those irritating cinemas which show effects of grouping producers to find something with universa audience-appeal. There is, first o: all, a rather capable cast consisting of William Powell, Bette Davis Frank McHugh, Hugh Herbert, and Verree Teasdale. Second, there i a style note to appeal to the femi nine mind AND a fan-dance musica number to attract the maile contin gent. IBut by floundering arouni (between these various "appeals' the producers have given us Jus an average picture, very tiresom at times—rather interesting at oth ers. Fashions of 1934 offers a goo illustration of the tactics whic rival producers use. When it be came known (after Fashions 1934 was completed) that one com pany was working on Follies was hinted to alert showmen tha in 'place of the original title might be good business to adver tise this production under the nam of Fashion Follies of 1934, wit' special emphasis on the FOLLIES Fortunately, however, under th NBA code of (air competition, thi sort of misleading advertising wa promptly suppressed. The (big musical scene, the fan dance number, is the result of a effort to bring ostrich feather back into popularity by using them in an elaborate sequence in whic the comely ladies of the chorus ar seen clothed in feathers, and littl else. It is really a strikingly beau tiful numfber, one of the most ef fective ever produced, graceful be yond anything the screen has giv en us before. But this outstandhv scene is a long time coming (as i so many climaxes), and loses muc of its effectiveness through Ion periods of mediocrity which pre cede it. William Powell as suave and de bonair stylish plays his. usual ex cellent part, and is ably assisted b the blonde Bette in what seems t us to be her most expert interpre tation. McHugh is good, and Hug Herbert is drunkenly (boisterous. We found Fashions of 1934 just bit tiresome. If this is the cas with a ready-to-wear merchant.jus what would the reactions of th normal sane and sensible individ ual be? Figure that out.
