Here we are spending money right and left for everything under the sun. I don' say that the CWA and the PW;' and the rest of them haven't dom some good. What I'm worrying about is where the money is com ing from." Wallaces' Farmer makes this let ter the text of a long editorial. B; •way of specific answer it says: "At the start it may be well t< clear up a doubt that exists in th« minds of some farmers. They have the feeling that perhaps emergency expenditures for relief made by the hat state and county democratic Eficlals would be reelected in November. It is still possible that an autumn political spurt will return democratic officials to their jobs, nit the situation at this time Is far rom assuring. For political purposes the strategy of the state democratic administration has been fearful to behold, and this whether right or wrong from other standpoints. Governor Herring made a tremendous political mistake when he called the extra session of the legislature. It is now evident thai correct political strategy would have been to await the regular session next winter, after this fall's election, meanwhile merely an nouncing a program. Whatever the merits of the nev state sales and old age head taxes it is difficult to defend them against political assault. By it own strategy the administration a Dos Moines has been put on the defensive. In politics defensive strategy does not appeal; the public is more inclined to line up with the strategy of attack. Adding to the complications of At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H. C. Plays Reviewed This Week- Looking for Trouble Journal of a Crime Men in White T OOKING FOR Trouble isn't con*-J fined to the telephone industry nowadays—sometimes it seems that half the restless folks that populate our modern, dizzy world are doing just this thing. The cinema by this name, however, has to do directly with the telephone business and we secretly wonder, as we watch the opening sequences of our movie, with its sly shots of the famous Bell insignia, whether we are victims of some artful propaganda. In fact, some of the first the life of a dying child we see the personification of these virtues, and in the aftermath, wherein the helpless child turns to Gable in an all-consuming faith, we fine an answer to the great truths of life Perhaps the famous trinity Faith, Hope, and Charity, have been a bit neglected in our mad scramble for Power and the Almighty Dollar; perhaps, after all, it's simple, everyday thoughtfulness which brings ultimate happiness. At least, we like to think so. As is so often the case in worthwhile pictures the plot is of little consequence as compared with the characterizations the players give their roles. Thus we see the old scenes in Looking for Trouble are j doctor capably played by that vet- almost identical with an out and ran^ of the screen,^Pean Hershplt; out advertising reel which the lo- " ' cal phone company showed in Algona some months ago. be the the situation there has now developed discord in the ranks of the democrats themselves. Governor Herring is already opposed for re- nomination, and there is some prospect of a complete primary ticket in opposition to the present btate- house incumbents. If ever democrats ought to stick together and settle family quarrels outside the primary, it is now, and it is surprising that the fact is not recognized by democratic malcontents. As politics goes, however, no one can blame the republicans for taking every advantage of the situation. It was to be expected that in the ordinary course of events the fervor which swept democrats into power in Iowa in 1932 would lose much of its force before rmother election, but apparently the democratic state leaders have never reckoned with this contingency; on the contrary they have proceeded as if the landslide settled the political complexion of Iowa for a long time to conie. This has been and remains a ma- porations whose incomes are tax-|jor error in democratic strategy. ed, also in higher costs of import- In the opinion of the Advance, government may eventually charged up against them in form of higher taxes on land. "They need not worry. The federal government does not secure its revenue from taxes on real property. The national expenditures are mot by income taxes, internal revenue taxes, tariff duties and similar items." Wallaces' Farmer goes on to a \ discussion of the national debt, but Jor the purposes of these remarks what it says is beside the point, avhich is that its specific reply consists wholly of half-truths. It is perfectly true that the federal government does not tax lands and derives its revenues from the sources mentioned. But it cannot bo true that the farmer, like everybody else, does not in the end pay his share. He pays it indirectly in higher cost of goods he buys from men and cor- ed goods on which tariffs are levied, as well as in other ways not so obvious; and he pays it directly whenever he buys goods subject to internal revenue, even though the tax be concealed in the price. Anybody will see this clearly who stops a moment to think things out, for certainly no one can pay taxes without in some way getting the money back via heavier charges for goods or services than •would otherwise be necessary. The trouble is that the bulk of readers never stop to think. They swallow such half-truths as this in Wallaces' Farmer without question, and thereby are led to muddled thinking which via their clamor, influence, and above all their votes sinks them deeper in Ihe abyss than they were before. Farther along in its discussion of the debts, Wallaces' Farmer re- "Will this expenditure have the desired effect? Nobody knows yet. All we know is that the debt increase of $6,400,000,000 under Hoover did no good, while the debt increase of less than halt that amount under Roosevelt has brought marked increases in the incomes of all groups." This paragraph begins with the admission that no one knows •whether what the present administration is doing will work out to what is intended; then it goes on which on non-partisan grounds favors the reelection of most democratic statehouse officials below governor and lieutenant governor, and also favors return of most democratic county officials, the whole democratic ticket from governor to constable is at this stage of the 1934 campaign in great danger. TIMELY TOPICS Notwithstanding, this is a fast- moving, entertaining picture, which, like the Ford blurb of last month, makes any advertising fare that it contains, appetizing and palatable. It is the second movie to deal with a like situation, I've Got Your Number, being the first. Comparison of the two talkies leaves some doubt as to which has the greater merit. Spencer Tracy and Jack Oakie bear the burden of the plot in the present instance with Constance Cummings assuming the feminine role. In the latter particular, we think, Joan Blondell in I've Got Your Number had her bested. Tracy and Oakie are linemen for the telephone company and as such, involve themselves in a wire tapping plot which supplies the climax of the picture. The methods employed by both the crooks and their eventual captors are interesting and instructive. It is the broad sweep of a picture like Looking for Trouble that gives it its zest; here we get intimate glimpses into homes of a motley assortment of criminals, society folk and prostitutes — the scenes change with the rapidity of a telephone patron getting a new number from central. Therein lies the charm of pictures of this de scription. There is some fast, snappy dia lok in Looking for Trouble, as wel as some decidedly rare and rac; situations. Oakie, from Azuza Texas, plays his best role as th wise-cracking assistant to Tracy who is not far behind him in so phisticated humor. Buying his gir spinach at a cafeteria, Tracy add dryly, "This puts who-in in you what-is." Where do we go from here? A Washington dispatch says the reason congress did not accept the LaFollette bill calling for increased income taxes affecting small •as well as large taxpayers was that the party in power never in- Ci'p.Jl5F>.<i .tnv^ia nn tho TQTIV nnrl -Pila m a campaign year if it can help it. That's a rule of the political game that the democrats at Des Moines forgot last winter. Of course you did not fail to notice Uliat the independent offices (veterans') bill which congress passed over the president's veto restored the $1,000 a year that was; cut from the $10,000 salaries of congressmen and senators in the fine frenzy for economy a year ago. Xot that it could have influenced any votes—perislh the thought! to the positive statement that whati Tlle solons could not be influenced •was done under the Hoover admin- u >' such a venal consideration, and istration effected nothing, while' tne on 'y thing they .had in mind vas justice for t)be veterans — and jrewing trouble for Roosevelt. What is the use of issuing government bonds and paying interest vhen we could just as well substi- ute money? You see that argu- nent in almost every forum page n the 'Sunday Register. Such writers are crackpots whom it is use- ess to argue with, but it may occur to people vv'ho use their heads that the necessity of paying interest is an invaluable check on over- ssue of bonds. How lovely it vould be if private debts could al- vays be paid with notes bearing no nterest. Well, governments are in no different case. the Roosevelt policies have increased incomes. These are half-truths again, excepting the admission at the start. The Hoover policies did not in all respects meet the situation, but that they did no good at all is simply not true. The Hoover administration was groping its way in a •new situation, and there is no assurance that in the same cirum- stances the Roosevelt administration would not have done the same. JThe best proof of this is that the Koosevelt administration has re- iained the RFC and other administrative agencies of the Hoover administration, merely extending their operations to fit the present •situation. •^ As regards the assertion that lloosevelt policies have increased income, there can be no doubt that "for .some classes o£ the population euch has been the result, via various means, including the corn loans. But who can say that the increase has not been merely temporary and in a sense fictitious? The aftermath is yet to come, and as Wallaces' Farmer itself admits, nobody yet knows the answer. Furthermore there is grave question among competent observers •whether such legitimate increase as we have had was due to or in epite of Roosevelt policies. Other countries have done as well or better without them. And whether one believes in the effectiveness of the Hoosevelt policies or not, fairness demands the admission that difference of competent opinion exists . Wallaces' Farmer in effect deceives Its readers by failing to note thus tact. Nothing herein is intended as either defense of the Hoover policies or criticism of the Roosevelt policies. What we are getting at is that half-truths do not help but on the contrary tremendously hinder the intleligeut understanding of the situation and the proposed reiue- . dies which is a pre-requisite of recovery. The truth is that in these latter lonesome young nurse, sympa- hetically portrayed by Elizabeth llan; the discouraged physician mply pictured by Otto Kruger; nd the frivolous society climber larchingly drawn by Myrna Loy. Vhat a cast and what a drama icy unfold! There are only a few, brief flash- s of comedy to relieve the tense- ess of situations, and they are urnished by the noisy internes, as .ley gabble. Even the old maes- ro, Henry Walthall, contributes, in minor role, a bit of his past lory. Men in White is the crowning chievement in a long line of ef- orts to bring to the screen a ruthful, forceful, dramatization of he medical profession. HOW TO GUT TAX 'BURDON FOR THE SCHOOLS IS TOLD Ily Eleanor M. Norton. Public education in the United States is a major industry Involving property Investments of over seven billion dollars and an annual tax bill of two and one-half billions. The depression has compelled closer scrutiny of the whole system. Possibilities for enormous savings and far-reaching improvements have come to light. Among the most expensive schools now maintained in the United States are the 145,000 one- room schools and the 12,000 rural high school enrolling fewer than trlcts, half or more of the Items purchased cost from 10 to 100 per cent more than when purchased in quantities either through coopera^ tion with other districts or by some central purchasing agent. Thousands of dollars are saved when school authorities carefully test the quality of each Item to be purchased, secure competitive bids, and exercise care in receiving the supplies and In distributing them to the classrooms. By use of correspondence lessons at least one state and several small localities have recently made considerable progress In eliminating many of the small classes and Improving the offerings in the small high schools. By this means it has become possible for a teacher to supervise the studies of pupils in two or more subjects during a single class hour. Larger classes, of course, mean lower per capita costs. A richer program of education means higher returns for the money expended. Both mean economy to the tax- ^•^•••••••••••'^ B| t : • Former High School Boy Here, Only 20, l s Miss Norton, who is the daughter of Mrs. F. S.

Whittemore Champion — From the nature of remarks heard about the streets, it would seem that some legislators who were instrumental in inaugurating the new sales tax are due to lose a considerable number of votes when they come up for re-election. What! Treason in the Camp? Primghar Bell—NRA has been in effect in O'Brien county since last August. Will someone point out to us what benefit we as a people have received?

Swea City Herald — We have known the state senators from this district ever since the days of Dr BaeUman of Estherville, and after everything is properly subtractec we believe Senator Patterson will add up as well as any of them. With his experience in the legislature aud his studious attitude towards questions of government, we can't see where the state will go far wrong if he gets the post of lieutenant governor. Certainly, he ought to do better than the last two lieutenant governors. T HE GOOSE HUNG HIGH at th Call last week Tuesday nigh (Bank Night), but the biggest po of the series ($100) went beggin when the winner failed to presen himself. Two prizes of $25 eac were distributed to the hungr crowd, however, which seemed t appease the milling multitude. It was the biggest mob of th hauser, "Ib; the sidewalk were insufficient to accommodate it, and men, women, and children extended into the street, almost blocking car traffic. su ~t,. A tired looking mother holding a small baby in her arms and trying to sooth a 3-year-old youngster sat in a chair at the rear of the auditorium and attempted to follow the picture but her thoughts, like those of everyone else, were on that $100. __ „,,„, ,„„, Eager, bright-eyed boys ran around 6tto~F!sk"subs'' the fringe of the over-flow crowd ' outside, keeping it in a state of continual excitement. The air inside the theater was tinged with expectancy, every seat up and down stairs filled. What matters the show when a hundred minor comedies and tragedies are being enacted in every section of the theater? The bank night is more than just a "business getter" for Manager Rice—it is the greatest three-ring circus ever staged in Algona. The attraction (if it could be called that) on the screen was Ruth Chatterton in Journal of a Crime, the goofiest, nuttiest, melange of tearful suffering our un- fornuato little actress has brought to her admiring audience in a long time. She is the wife of a philandering playwright (Adolph Men- jou) who is madly in love with a temperamental actress (Claire i Dodd). Follows, then, murder, robbery, and the inevitable retribution. The question seems to be, Should a wife hoot 'the other woman, after she the wife) has lost the love of her lusband? After seeing the picture, we felt like doing the shootin'. In the end, Ruth loses her mind, which erases the lurid past, and we see mama and papa sitting by the ocean, holding hands and wondering what it's all about, And we don't blame them—much. Pictures like Journal of a Crime are the bane of this critic's existence. They offer no solution to the problems of life, they contribute nothing to the enjoyment of it, and they leave you in a state of utter exhaustion. That is, if you take them seriously, which, thank heaven, we never do. Even an ardent admirer of Miss Chatterton could hardly enthuse over this heart-rending drama of unrequited love—so what shall we say of the rest of us? [ T IS A CURIOUS fact that after having been branded a sensualist and a purveyor of the fleshy side of film-life, Clark Gable should suddenly come through the fire completely purged and give us in rapid succession two extraordinary pieces of human-interest cinema-drama in It Happened One Night and Men in White. Under the faultless direction of Richard Boleslavsky, Men in White is a gripping but simple story o: doctors in general and one doctor in particular played before a realistic background of hospital routine in much the same sweeping "way as in Grand Hotel. Again a location picture scores a triumph. In the cinema, as in life, the most interesting characters are those through whose veins flows the milk of human kindness, sympathy, understanding, humility. These are the homely, unsung virtues which show the strength not the weakness of men and women. In the scene wherein Gable overrides a superior doctor and saves KITTENBALLERS TO OPEN THE SEASON HERE ON APRIL 30 The Algona kittenball league is preparing to open the season Monday, April 30.

Mrs. Deland, Wife of Judge, Dies at Storm Lake Home Mrs. James DeLand, Storm Lake, died Friday, after a sickness of some weeks, and funeral services were held Monday at Storm Lake. She was the wife of Judge DeLand, who was scheduled to hold court here a week ago Monday. Judge Davidson opened the term for him, md Judge Heald, Spencer, was lere Monday, but left at noon to attend the funeral. Mrs. DeLand vas about 73 years old. 100 pupils. There are more than 7,000 of these country schools with enrollments of 5 or fewer pupils in which perforce the cost per pupil sometimes exceeds $1,000 /per annum; costs of two and three hundred dollars per year are fairly common. When we consider the fact that the quality of education dispensed in these very small schools is usually inferior, can we wonder that many states are aroused over this problem and are now taking steps to solve it? Some states have found that by closing all one-room schools of fewer than 12 pupils and transporting the children to neighboring schools, they can cut school costs by four or five millions of dollars. Benefits of Consolidation. Attention is being centered upon the possibilities and benefits of consolidation of small school districts and a general rehousing of rural schools. By such a program the abandonment of very small schools is facilitated, classes are brought to standard size, efficient administrators and supervisors are employed, the school program is enriched, supplies and equipment are more economically handled, better teachers are secured, wealth is taxed where it actually is, and tax funds are spent where the children are. advance in promoting and supplying opportunities for adult education. More attention is also being given to the guidance and adjustment problems of young people. Thus, the very critical problems now facing society are proving an opportunity for educators and other social leaders not only to make needed administrative changes in the system of education but in more closely relating the services of the school to life.

Thus the administrative and financial responsibility for education is shifted from the local district to the county or to the state. Such a reorganization is sure to result, in creator equalization of educational opportunities and in better education at lower costs. Great Economies Possible. Since there are at present more than 100,000 local rural school districts in the United States presided over by 300,000 school board members, the economies possible through consolidation and other means of abandoning many of the »mall school districts are enor- nous. If the affairs of each individual school in a city system were pre- ided over by a separate school )oard, each selecting and supervis- ng its own teachers, each purchas- ng and handling its own supplies each levying taxes for its own locality, each managing its own finances, each dabbling in local poli- ics—and then if each were run vithout the services of a trained lead, we would have a close paral- el to the inefficient and wasteful »ystem now common in local dis- rict systems.
