If readers will remember and allow for this in case anything further appears in support of the Advance's position some confusion of motives may be eliminated. WHAT HAS BECOME OF THE ItlCIIES ViK HAD? Once or twice in a lifetime an editor who knows his job is seizec by an inspiration and writes i classic. E. P. Chase, of the Atlanti News-Telegraph, performed feat last December and now the ha teen awarded the Pulitzer $500 prize for 1933's best editorial. This editorial was entitlec "Where is Our Money?" In Tuesday's Des Moines Register it was reprinted, and it is to be hoped that everyone read it. Nothing more "worth reading has appeared in the swollen literature of the depression. Comparatively few people read "history. Fewer still study economics, hardly a finger-pinch ol people, let alone a handful. The result is that when the times change, the number who recognize what is happening is pitifully small, so few that they cannot get a hearing. This is just as true in time of inflation as in the misery of deflation. In 1919 few understood that it was the war that had made farm lands and farm products high- iwiced, and that when the war ended there would be a disastrous collapse. History over and over again ^repeats the story of such collapses, fcut people who never read history do not know it and they decline to listen. Thus in 1919 we said land would *ever drop in price again; we talk«d grandiosely of $500 Iowa land. "We said corn would never sell as low as a dollar again, and hogs -would always sell as they sold then »t great auctions whose catalogs -alone cost up to $1,000. Acting on these beliefs we ran land up to $200 and $300. We mortgaged unencumbered farms for huge sums to buy more. We paid hundreds, even thousands, for fcoars and sows with impressive pedigrees. At a fair grounds auction typical of the times in our own •county a boar was reputedly sold *l $25,000. We were intoxicated with prosperity. Speculators in land who liad never been good on a note before, and have never beea since, •were suddenly rated up to $100,000. Anybody could borrow money at the bank, for ninety-nine out of a hundred rural bankers had never •read history or studied economics •«ither. When the Federal Reserve Board, •whose warnings had long been ignored, at last—too late—took action a blatant Iowa senator who probably knew better accused it, and it alone, of having caused the inevitable collapse, and he made this the issue on which he was le- «lected. In the spring of 1920 there were jplam warning-s that the collapse -was approaching, but few listened. Thte mad race continued till tliel Inevitable collapse in the fall. The year 1921 was a hard year for everybody. But the depression was Short-lived for everyone but the, farmer. By 1923 everyone but he •was again traveling high, wide, and handsome. It took the collapse «f 1929 to slow the rest of us down to the hobbled pace imposed on, tfie farmer ever since 1920. In war tame and again in thei •years before 1929 we—all but tflra farmer—spent money like drunk- fen sailors. We bought stocks, 1)onds of every kind foreign and domestic, flimsy city building securities, automobiles, fine clothes, *ilk shirts, installment goods, anything and everything that fancy ^dictated. America was rich and would never be poor again! Hoov-. er envisioned the unbiblical time when the poor would no longer be ••with us. The milleniu:n on earth had arrived. Now we are paying the piper, as our forebears and great-fore- 9>ea_rs have always done uCien eprees were over. But we are still the sons of their loins. No more than they in their days of col- Saspe are we ready to recognize' our faults and reform our ways. Even as they we clamor for government magic, forgetting t'hat we are the government, and government cannot do what its consti- THE HOARY OLT) SILVER HOOEY IS WITH US AGAIN It seems a pity that this country apparently must go through with the silver fiasco again. We had the same agitation in the 70's and the 80's, and the same government silver purchasing plans were tried then that are advocated now. They were miserable failures and never did anybody any good except the silver mining magnates. The last attempt almost bankrupted the government in Cleveland's second term. It is plain that President Roosevelt is against the present proposals, but his hand is being forced by a powerful silver bloc in congress from the mining states. The president is right, but he may have to yield to these buccaneers. Government purchase of silver will accomplish nothing towards increase in circulation of money, but on the contrary will add to the forces which tend to keep money and credit out of circulation by weakening confidence in the stability of our money. TIMELY TOPICS The average of all living costs has gone up 22 per cent in the last year. It now costs the housewife $1.12 to get as much meat as she got a year ago for a dollar, and for all foods she spends $6 where she spent $5 last year. For clothing the figures are $42 and ?30; for fuel and light, $11.70 and $10. To complete the picture we need to know whether consumer income squares with increased costs. A good many republicans as well as democrats regret the democratic candidacies in opposition to GovJernor Herring. Republicans! can be against him while yet be- "ieving that his record is good :rom a democratic standpoint and entitles him to the unanimous sup>ort of his party in the primaries as well as at the election. In Illinoifr they are having the ;ame 'buttle over intrastate NRA hat Iowa ihad Just before the ex- ra session closed. So far only 11 tales have adopted this 'law, and curiously enough in view of the "ace that it is a democratic mea- iure not a state below Mason and Dixon's line is in the list. In Illi- ois last week-end 77 votes were eeded to put the bill over in the louse, but only 61 had been cor- alled. Granted that we nted inurna- ional trade, and 'that to get it we must cut tariffs in appropriate "ases, the only way to turn the rick is to delegate the power to he president. A log-rolling congress could never do it. Our Iowa republican congressmen would do well to support the president on. this. Iowa's interest is in lower tariffs and international trade.

Smith writes— "This is the first time that we have taken an extended auto trip without any definite plans. We didn't start for several days after the grips were packed, we didn't plan to stay at any particular place nor to be back by any specified time. It's the first time we have jogged along at 25 to 40 miles an hour in a car that would easily do 50 and 60 without effort. When we see something or somebody that interests us, we pull to the side of the road and stop. If you have never tried a vacation trip of this kind, we can strongly recommend it." Now that's something like! To turn over one's business to the kids. To feel financially able. To have the woman of our bosom as eager to seek strange countries as we are. To shake loose from everything and wander off leisurely and carefree with no special destination in view. To stop when we like and go when we like. To see how other folks live. To get acquainted with new scenes and new views. To travel In far places. To spend a little time like a tramp before we die. To hear no stern call to the daily stint. To let the doggoned children take care of themselves for two minutes. Oh, to be a Muhleman 60 years old but with the heart still of youth and wanderlust!

Ramon Navarro and Lupe Valez struggle desperately to bring reality to a bit of desert fantasy, with the latter ringing up the best performance In her career. The musical background is haunting, and the twilight desert scenes are more convincing and lovely than the rather sordid plot. Not a family show.

[Clear Lake Reporter.] Mrs. Jones, of Cactus Creek, let a can opener slip last week and cut P ITY THE POOR critic — after suffering torments of the damned and viewing the aslninities of Bing Crosby et al, in a supposedly funny sketch, We're Not Dressing, we interviewed some ten people in the lobby of the Call, and found that every one pronounced it a great show. Which changes our own opinion not one bit: we think it was a lousy, production fit only for morons. With a cast of considerable talent, director and producer have thrown them into a conglomeration absurdities without rhyme or reason. There is only one really funny scene in the production, and that at the very beginning. Leon Errol, long a meritorious comedian with stage experience, mixes up a highball for himself and Ethel Merman, following which they execute a Spanish dance which is clever. After that we suffered through endless songs by Bing and some pretty old stuff by Burns and Allen. Manager Rice, however, informs us that this show is "knocking 'em cold" in Chicago and New York, and so has been put in a higher price class than was originally bargained for. Which is just so much applesauce as far as we are concerned. If you are a dyed-in-the-wool Irosby fan, if you find Burns and Allen laugh-provoking, if you demand no originality in production, n a word if you are out for a eom- Jlete "mental holiday," you perhaps found it in We're Not Dress- ng; but certainly it's just as easy :o show a bit of cleverness, a touch of "class," than to spend a lot of 'jack" on the drawing power of a ot of radio stars. Take Leon Errol, for example: here is a comedian of the first water, a clever fellow who originated ''crumple legs," yet with the excep- ion of a short dance routine he lasn't a thing to do in this play hat Jack Oakie or any handy boy around the studio couldn't dupli- out of the bag.

Opinions of Editors Scepticism Grows Among Farmers. Knoxville Journal—With hogs breaking under the |4 level, Chicago price, and grains sinking almost daily, the farm country is growing very skeptical of all the ballyhoo. social on last Saturday night, savage dog attacked them and bit Mr. Green on the public square Isaiah Trimmer, of Running Creek, was playing with a cat on Friday when it scratched him on his veranda . . .

And it doesn't make any difference how thin you cut it, it's still baloney. Yes, this is an "epic" of the soil, a dreary, drab existence on a lone- sofe farm. To a cheerful, contented fanner the thing doesn't ring true, and to a happy, carefree city man or woman (if there are such animals) it's just common ordinary rat poison. Who wants to sit through eight or ten reels of suffering, even if the suffering is done by the other fellow? Dorothy Appleby portrays a "vamp" with about as much finesse as a polar bear playing contract bridge. She washes her feet in a brook, a performance supposed to be 100 per cent sex stuff in this age of the one-piece bathing suit. We're afraid your technique belongs to the mysteries of the Gay Nineties, Dorothy. Then a feminine calf was front-page stuff in any man's life. The supporting cast is good, but the material the performers have to work on is decidedly second- class. This may be a "clean" picture, but there are a lot of things in this world that are clean—and uninteresting! hound's toolh, For example: a Carole Lombard in the feminine ead is beautiful at times, rather ordinary at others. One thing is certain: they didn't give the poor gal a break. She's dressed up in he first scene, then they throw ler into the ocean In a shipwreck and make her wear the same old dress for ten reels. Of course Carole's hair isn't so bad, even though there's no beauty )arlor on the desert isle, but really t's asking a good deal to make a movie actress go through a whole ihow in a skimpy water-drenched dress — even her underwear blows away!
