"TBE COUHSE OF BUSINESS AS VISUALIZED BY CHAKT downs. The major handicap at the moment seems to be the silver threat, but the president and his advisers are now known to be against monetary inflation and the country has confidence that they will steer a safe course. WELL DESERVED TRIBUTE TO THE JU'UAL PltESS Commenting on the Pulitzer $500 prize award to E. P. Clmse, of the Atlantic News-Telegraph, for 1933's best editorial, P. A. Moscrip, of the Marshalltown Times - Republican, recently honored by the state press association as a master editor, says: "The country press and the dailies in the smaller fields of the state produce astonishingly excellent editorial comment. Atlantic, in the 5,000 population class, and its newspaper and editor attain a leadership and distinction among a type of newspapers that live and flourish largely in local environment. "It is to the T.-R. editor the day The Colyum Let's Not be too D—d Serlons AQUILA, ITALY — A credito waved two promissory notes in th face of his debtor, Vitorio D'Ales sio, and demanded payment o some ?350. D'Alessio seized th notes, stuck them in his mouth an implication called Agricultural Economic Facts carried a small chart in its May issue illustrating the course of business activity in 1933. If business activity (had been normal since January 1, 1932, the three lines in this chart would coalesce at the top, which is rated IMOtX NUMBUB The useful Iowa State college jot the week when those exchanges arrive to be thoroughly read and examined for editorial comment. Mr. Chase and the News-Telegraph represent a class of clean, straightforward, straight-thinking and plain-speaking editors and newspapers in the towns and smaller cities of a state that Is not only literate, but whose editors are honest in their views, who may and do dif fer in political convictions bu come to their conclusions in sin cerity and with a common fearless ness." Mr. Moscrip wrote this tribute in. no spirit of mere eulogy of his own profession, and the Advance en dorses his remarks in the samt spirit. The tribute is well deserved Every publisher of a weekly newspaper or a small daily will understand Mr. Moscrip's remark that to him the day of days in the -week is the day when the weeklies arrive with their hodge-podge of editorial comment. Here is the heart of American public opinion, for no class of the population is more fearless, more independent, anc more honest than the country edi- mt 100. Tlhe distance the linea «lropped from x<ie top indicates 3»ow far below normal business ac- -imty was in each month during =33i« period of -two years and two -months charted. __ -It is interesting and informa-< *rre to visualize what has occurred in this way. We note that at 3i« beginning of Hoover's last •year, whicti is indicated by the! *r»ken line, .business activity -Stood at 70 per cent of normal. There followed a steady decline "wiich flattened out for the summer at 60 per cent. This -was a campaign year, and -*! course the declining state of *usiness activity tremendously •Suuidicapped President Hoover and *y the same token was of im- advantage to Governor "Hoosevelt. In August, however, •4here was a mild upturn, and this ifireatly encouraged the president, •who called attention to it in (his -speeches; but it was not enough; -4o turn the tide whdch was running so strongly against (him, ^ttougfo the improvement held ita •wm till the election and for the 1 -Test of the year. Authorities now agree that in •*ts world aspects the depression "touched the (bottom in the sum- =m*r of 1932. In the other iprinci- npa.1 countries there was no relapse! -of consequence, and the recovery jjine has slowly ascended, thougfli it is still far under normal, Whether because the government was about to change, with. all Che uncertainties involved, or lor ipurely economic reasons, is not -clear, but beginning January 1, 1933, the line — the solid line now — dropped rapidly during January «nd February to the low point of -the American depression, or a lit*le .below 60. This relapse culminated in tihe nation-wide closing of Tbank which was President Roose- Trelt's first act. The very first month of -the •woosevelt administration ,saw a tors. Democracy will be safe in this country as long as the country editors are not muzzled by government. TIMELY TOPICS The recent tree-planting at main highway intersections looks like doubtful business. It would seem that the idea ought to be to keep busy intersections as free as possible of obstructions to the view Stop signs cannot be relied upon and the trees will In time become responsible for accidents. It would doubtless be exaggeration to attribute the droughts of the last year or two and the resulting great dust storms to over- drainage in the last 25 years, yet the suspicion that too much interference with nature has had something material to do with the causes seems justified. No doubt a great many people were disappointed because the government's case against Andrew Mellon failed. Yet it is all but inconceivable that one in his position would have knowingly laid himself open to criminal prosecution. The Insulls, the Mitchells, and others of their ilk are in fact no more typical of their strata of society than common criminals are in the lower walks of life. E. J. Fueling, New Hampton postmaster-editor, democratic state chairman, is editor of The Iowa .rise in business activity to '65 per -eent of normal, and the rise con- 'tinued precipitately till it reached « 90 per cent peak July 1. Corn an this .period Shot up to 50c. Pros- Iferi'ty was apparently returning »n a. rush. Many farmers unwisely *«ld their corn for higher prices. Such a rapid rise was recogniz- _ea as unhealthy, and the administration itself feared a relapse, "it Teame, and from July i till Oecem- »er 1 there was a steady drop to a -point slightly under 70 per cent.

At Whittemore paving for the town's main street is debated, now that the mile north to No. 18 is to be semi-hardsurfaced. Well, by all means let it be done. Aside from home benefits, the good impression on outsiders is worth the cost. No one visits Wesley, Lakota, or Swea City without being struck with the improvement which paving has made in the looks of the business districts of these three towns. Opinions of Editors ate them.—D. M. Sunday .Register Well, something like that hap pcned 35 years ago in Kossut county, but it wasn't cabled over seas, in fact never achieved pub licity. It was when this writer wa practicing law at Goldfield. Th bank there gave him a note to col lect from a Sexton farmer. When the note was presented the fame grabbed it and would not give i back. Chas. E. Cohenour was county attorney then, but'he would not lis ten to the young lawyer, a strang er. The latter's brother-in-law, W J. Patton, was a Lu Verne justice of the peace, so recourse was hac to him, and a warrant for the farm er's arrest was obtained. The young lawyer and a Lu Verne con stable drove to Sexton with team and buggy, arrested the farmer ;ind had him half way to Lu Verne before he agreed to give up the note. A trip back to his home wa: necessary to get it, and then it was found that he had torn off his signature. The note happened to be payable in another county, and the young lawyer sued it there. How the signature happened to be missing was explained to the court, and judgment was rendered. Whether the bank ever collected we know not. We never got a fee, paid our own expenses, and never got the money back. Sometimes A Good Forgettery Is Not So Good. [Ward Barnes' Column] A good forgettery is sometimes a valuable asset, but Elmer Long that tihe president enterained -*io intention of making dangerous 1 wse of the monetary inflation pow- *rs which congress had in fright conferred upon him. _ _The relapse had the usual political effects.

The same writer reveals Academy Juniors Are Hosts to (lie Seniors— Seniors of St. Cecelia's Academy were feted at the annual JOnior- Senior banquet at the Academy hall last night. A 6 o'clock dinner was served at a large table which formed a square, and the room was decorated in green and gold streamers, the senior classi colors. The Rev. T. J.

Plays Reylewed This Week— Tarzan and His Mate The Masquerader Nana PREVIEWS It was our misfortune to witness Richard Barthelmess in his latest horror-cinema called The Modern Hero. If Manager Rice tries to slip this atrocity over on Call patrons (we do not think he will) our advice is, "Save your money." It is the worst picture we have seen in months. The only term we find which aptly describes it is the last syllable of the hero's name. npARZAN AND HIS MATE is not •7 a picture, it's an ordeal. Tha 1m attendent to it would make a )oiler factory seem as quiet and peaceful as the Sahara at night.

From these disparaging remarks, it must not be understood that Tarzan and His Mate is not an entertaining, exciting, and well directed picture. It's just spinach, and we don't care for it. T HE MASQUERADER fails to conceal the potent fact that it is a drama of the Mauve Decade, but notwithstanding it is good entertainment, infinitely superior to most the half-baked drivel which comes to us under the guise of "hot stuff." In fact this romantic improbability seems slightly old- fnshioned in this day and age. Roland Colman plays the title role, which we saw years ago in Chicago in the expert hands of Guy Bates Post. The Masquerader is a story of mistaken identity. Mr. Chilcothe member of parliament, is a drunkard, a dope fiend, and philanderer. John Loder, his double, is an earnest, hard-working, deep-thinking man. They meet one night in the fog, after Mr. Chilchote has figured in a disgraceful scene in the House, and they exchange places. Mr. Loder not only achieves success in politics, but wins the heart of Mrs. Chilchote. Mr. C. dies, and the imposter takes his place in both the affairs of England and the household at Chilcothe. A highly improbable but intensively interesting yarn, this, 25 years ago, but somehow, like The Witching Hour, previewed some weeks ago, it smells a trifle musty. •Roland Coleman is an ideal actor for the leading role, and the screen version has points of both advantage and disadvantage compared with the stage production. In the latter the scenes were difficult to follow, while in the screen version there is a great deal more unnecessary "local atmosphere" than Is essential to the realism of the story. Elissa Land! is a disappointment as the wife. Her portrayal lacks almost everything necessary to the human-interest part of her role. She never approaches reality, her emotions are superficial, and her demeanor at no time smacks of sincerity. After all, The Warrior's Husband is her type of story. The "other" woman is atrociously played by an actress whose name we didn't catch—which loss, however, we have no regrets about. The rest of the cast is good. The Masquerader is elaborately produced and well photographed. It was one of the first books that made an impression on our adolescent mind when we read it 30 years ago—which, of course, is one count against it. Because, after, all, what pleased us, literaturely speaking, three decades ago, could scarcely be given high praise in our so-called "years of wisdom." (and there wiwll be folks who will really believe that we believe this).

Nana, the screen version, is dull, uninspired, expressionless, it moves along apparently withoufe purpose, and it ends in a manner that 'bewilders rather than impresses. Of the supporting cast only Richard Bennett is worth men- .'tioning. He plays the part of theatrical manager with some effectiveness.
