SOME REFLECTIONS OX THE NEW IOWA SALES TAX One of the abjections to state Bales taxation is that citizens can and will beat it by buying goods in taxless states for delivery by mail, express, or otherwise. This deprives home retailers o£ the profits and by so much reduces the home state's mass income. Another objection is that border retailers suffer loss of local trade ito retailers across the state line. Local papers across the Minnesota line have already forecast increase of trade on this account 'for bordering Minnesota towns, and on the Southern Iowa border the Bloomfield Republican predicts loss of Iowa trade to bordering Missouri towns. These and other objections, such as that sales taxation is a constant source of irritation to retailers and customers alike, may bo considered as incidental. The main economic objection is that this sort of taxation is not based on ability to pay and therefore constitutes exemption of the well to do and the rich. ested in agricultural economies should have it. Another valuable Iowa economic publication which may be had free for the asking is the Iowa Business Digest, published by the Bureau of Business Research of the Collego of Commerce at the state university. This is also a 4-page printed publication devoted _to facts, performing the same service for business in Iowa that the Ames publication performs tor agriculture.

J. I-I. Allen is a candidate for mayor of Des Moirtes. His picture appeared in a political advertisement in last week's Plain Talk. Shocked, we clipped it, pasted it on a sheet of copy paper, typed the above note, and mailed it to Joe. Hair as white as snow! Face drawn like that of Cummins in the last years!

A further consideration justifying sales taxation in some form is that we cannot escape it if we are at once to reduce the property tax burden and maintain all the state's present services, besides adding the new ones which the legislature cannot refrain from imposing at every session. The Advance has for some years been convinced that the net income tax, while of first importance in any program of tax reform, would mot produce sufficient revenue to Hiring about as much relief for property as was needed, and that resort to sales taxation in some form would have to be had in spite ] of its defects from the standpoint of pure economics. Prior to the present extra legislative session the important thing •was to get the net income tax law enacted, and in view of the opposition it would have been a -fatal mistake to couple a sales tax of any ikind with it. The fact that it took ten years of desperate battling to break down resistance and maneuver the net income tax into a position where it had to be considered shows that. The fight was almost •won a year ago, and the mass psychology of reform which came in with the democratic administration has now made possible not only adoption of the net income tax but also of sales taxation in the same Ijill. As regards sales taxation the question now is whether we have the right form. It is the general sales tax that we have, applying u> all retail sales, including not only what may be classed as luxury goods but necessities, and that is the most doubtful form of sales taxation, for the reason already given, namely, that it casts an unfair burden on the poor and in effect exempts the able from then- due share. If with due regard to revenue, necessities can be exemp- Ited the change should by all means (be made. In another direction the great cates not due till 1945, the Patman passed by .the House for payment in greenbacks is indefensible. The congressmen who supported it were thinking more of votes than of their duty to their country. Unless signs fail Uncle >Sam is going to have a lot of corn on his hands August 1 next, only four and a .half months from now. It is strange that so far not a thing has been said about what is to be done with sealed corn. Apparently not even farmers are interested. Yet the disposition of such a vast accumulation certainly ought to be a question of first importance. And She Doesn't Know That One Any Too Well.

Here is the next battle line, and if ever the taxpayer fis to win he must fight now and to the last ditch.

Opinions of At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H. C. Plays re-viewed this It Happened One Night Good Dame & Bank Night Queen Christina Lullaby Land (Walt I)ls- shares a room with him in a wayside tavern, disguised as a young joy. She tastes for the first time m her life the sweet ecstacies of ney Silly Symphony) T^iHE 1 t.ii CONCENSUS of opinion is that It Happened One Night is a swell show, and for once, the concensus of opinion is right. Like Lady for a Day, also directed by Frank Capra, this production was not made to be one of the screen hits of the season—it simply had that honor thrust upon it when audiences and critics alike, pronounced it A-l entertainment. Most of the action takes place on a transcontinental bus hound from Florida to New York on which the girl (Claudette Colbert, rich and spoiled daughter of a millionaire), is escaping to Join her recently acquired socialite husiband. The man (Clark Gable), a noisy newspaper man, is on the same bus, interested (at first) more in the escapade than in the girl. After stopping along the way_ in tourist camps, finally hitch-hiking when they fear discovery in the bus (the anxious father combing the country for his daughter whom he believes kidnaped), a strange love grows on Gable and Colbert. When, on the last night, he tells her of his dream of love—the usual hooey about an island in the Pacific, moonlight, stars, etc.—she confesses devotion for him. The complications which follow, make an ex- passion. Later he still unconscious that Ills roommate was a Queen, meets her in her court. How Christina gives up her queenship and flees to iier lover, only to hold him, dying, in her arms, the victim of a_duel, provides a sad (but dramatic finale. If there is any criticism of Queen Christina, it is that the action drags painfully in spots, and .Director Mamoulian's .minute attention to detail slows the production up to a snail's pace towards the middle. When Greta has the center of the stage, we are intrigued by this mysterious enigmatic woman, bul when she is swallowed up in the maze of gigantic sets and rush seething_ milling crowds, we lose interest in the play. ilt is a woman's picture, any way you look at it, and the tear-dimmed eyes of the feminine customers as they filed slowly out of the Jail was silent proof that the more lachrymose they make 'em, the better they like 'em. The supporting cast of Queen Christina is splendid, including such outstanding character actors as €. Aubrey Smith, Lewis Stone Ivan Keith, and Reginald Owen. But Garbo is still the "head woman" of the movies, no doubt about that. citing finale for this enjoyable adventure. thoroughly THE New London I became interested VALUABLE IOWA PIJWLICATIOXS WHICH AUK FRKE in Agricultural Economic Facts is a 4-page printed publication, each page the size of a letterhead, issued monthly at Iowa State college and sent free to all who ask for it. It is filled with farm product price and other facts of great value to (farmers and others interested agricultural economics. _ As the name indicates, this publication, is devoted to facts. There is nothing of an editorial nature. Trends are pointed out, but interpretation of the facts is otherwise left to the reader.

Swea City Herald—A democrat makes just as good a judge as a republican.

Add Embarrassing Questions. Estherville Enterprise—The Mason City Globe-Gazette asks that if it is true new dealers never had any thought of restraining the newspapers in their traditional freedom to criticize, "will some of them explain, in simple, understandable language, why David Lawrence and William (Hard, two radio commentators, are no longer on the air?" Turner for Little Fellows. Estherville Enterprise — Turner was our kind of governor. He was lonservative. His decisions were always made quickly and they never lacked judgment. He was strong T or law enforcement and he never •seemed to let political favors stand in the way of such enforcement. He was a farmer and a friend of the farmer. He was for the small ;own business man, for his family tiad been pioneers in that kind of a business. An "Experiment" That Failed. _ Cherokee Chief—The administration seems looking for a comfortable way out of the air mail bungling. The handling of this prob- U-m has been one of the most un- for.tunate incidents of a year of highly dramatic service.

But the secret of the universal appeal o£ It Happened One Night is not in the plot but, as was also the case with Lady For a Day, in the numerous comedy sequences with which this picture is punctuated. There are many scenes o£ subtle and delicious humor, such humor as only an old maestro like Frank Capra is capable of contributing to the screen. One trivial incident we recall is waiting at a crossing while a freight train passes. Alone in a broken-down Model T Ford, Gable waves a friendly hand to the engineer, the brakeman, finally all the bums riding the box cars. The incident is introduced in order that Gaible may see his future bride, on her way to marry the rich man she abhors.

Q UEEN back 'CHRISTINA, bringing the glamorous Garbo to the silver screen Greta proves a truly momentous production, lavishly staged by (Reuben Mamoulian, with special attention to spectacular snow effects, massing of crowds in court scenes, and particular emphasis on close-ups of the sad-eyed 'Swedish actress who has reached the peaks of popularity as the screen's most popular emotional exponent. We see Greta at close range plucking the grapes (of love) with John Gilbert in a little tavern, her eyes heavy with passion; and we see_ her again facing her subjects defiantly, her lustrous eyes blazing with the fire of emotion. Angry, wistful, dreaming — always those haunting eyes, Garbo's greatest physical asset. 'So far as history is concerned, many liberties have been taken, which in no wise efface the enjoyment of this cinema after all, we don't go to the movies to learn our history, but rather to be entertained. We see Greta as lithe, athletic young queen, thirsting for love which her arduous duties seem to make impossible. Then she accidentally meets the Spanish envoy (John Gilbert) in a snowstorm and MRS, PETER N, THILGES, OF ST. JOE, DIES Rt. Joe, Wor. 13—Mrs. Peter N. Thilges, four miles northwest oC St. Joe, died Saturday afternoon ait .the Kcesuth hospital, following a major operation Friday. Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Father George Theobald ait St. Joseph's church at 9:30 a. m. Monday morning 1 , and burial was made in the St. Joseph cemetery. Mrs. TMlg-es was born November 17,1877 , at Brandenbevg, Luxem hours, and was in 'her oYith year a.t death. Her maiden name was Frideres. She came to America dn Ap rll 1S92, settled mear St. Joe, and was married May 20, 1902, here. There were seven children .but three died in 'infancy. The four surviving, all fit borne, are Edward, Ajihon.se, Agatha, and Rosina. Pallbearers were six nephews, Leo and Harold Frideres, Tony and Raymond Thilges, Aloysius Gales, and Ralph Reding. Relatives from a distance who rut- tended the funeral were Qlr. fund Mrs. John Hoffman, 'Mr. and Mrs. Peter Hoffman, all of Luxembourg, Iowa, and Kaithryn Thilges, Le- M.irs. This was one of the largest funerals ever seen at St. Joe. Many were unable to get inside the church. Friendly Club Has MoeUng— The Friendly club met last week Wednesday at Mi's. Peter Halrud's, Mrs. Hiko Karel assisting hostess There were ten members present. The afternoon was spent in talks concerning March and St. Patrick's clay. There was also a spelling contest. Mrs. Will. Boldridge and Mrs. Anton Becker had charge of the program. The next meeting will be with Mrs. Becker and Mrs. George Scuffham will be assisting hostess.

Other St. Joe. •Mr. and Mrs. Nick Reding, Peter Mueller, daughter Rosalia, and a nephew, all of Whlttemore, were callers at Mrs. Lucy Wagner's last week Wednesday evening on their way home from Fort Dodge. Mr. and Mrs. Nick Phillips, C'-lnre- mont, Minn., and children, Cecelia, Raymond, and Francis, arrived Sunday for a short visit with relatives and friends. Mat.t Bormann Business Kecords Required. Business records of many firms will .have to be changed somewhat to make computation of the tax and collections from consumers available for state checkers. The law requires that such records be kept, and the section relating to it follows: "It shall be the duty of every retailer required to make a report and pay any tax under this division ;o preserve such records of- the gross .proceeds of sales as the board nay Require, and it shall toe the duty of every retailer to preserve for a period of two years all invoices and other records of goods, wares, or merchandise .purchased for resale; and all such books, invoices, and other records shall >be open to examination at any time by the board [of assessment and review] or any of its duly authorized agents." Business Permits Required. One requirement which is meeting with strenuous objection from retailers is a permit section. Retailers must have a permit to do business, and if it should ,be revoked their .business would he closed. This section is viewed with great alarm. Points in law follow: "Sixty days after the effective date of this act, it shall be unlawful for any person to engage in or transact 'business as a retailer within this state unless a permit or permits have been issued to him as hereinafter prescribed . . . "At the time of making . . . ap- 'Plieation, the applicant shall pay to the board a permit fee of SOc for each permit, and the applicant must have a permit for each place of business . . . Penalties Are Provided. "Whenever the holder of a permit fails to comply with any of the provisions of this division, or any rules or regulations of the .board prescribed and adopted under this division, the board, upon hearing, after giving ten clays notice o! the time and place of hearing to show cause why his permit should not be revoked, may revoke the permit. The board shall also have the power to restore licenses after such revocation." 'Provision is made in a later section for appeal to the district and supreme courts from board rulings. The penalty for failure to file a reutrn, or a corrected return within the time limit, is subject to a penalty of five per cent of the amount of tax due, plus one per cent for each month's delay.
