ALGOJfA TAKES PHIT)K IN A FAMILY ACHIEVKMKJiT Kossuth county may be pardoned an interest like that in family circles for whatever Mr. and Mrs. Mrs. Cowles and Mr. Ingham do. Mrs. Cowles and Mr. Ingham were born and reared here, and Mr. Cowles spent his formative years in the community. Thus they are all three like our own flesh and blood. "We regard them with family affection and take a family pride in their achievements. The magnificent gift to needy causes which Mr. and Mrs. Cowles have just announced is a tribute to their warm, generous hearts, and nowhere is the fact better understood than in the old home town. The old friends in the home town and the home county cherish the hope that Mr. and Mrs. Cowles •will live to see the fruition of their noble gift. gross income scheme to head off! the net income tax, and then pro-i ceeded to push it when they found] that many people were gullible enough to accept It.

Kendall's own record as a governor independent of bosses leads him to sympathize with Turner, whom he recognizes as cut from the same pattern. The little fellows in Illinois finally got the ax three weeks ago, when the lower house in the legis- Sounds mighty interesting. We endorse paragraphs 2 and 3 unreservedly.

Our kind—well, we find it difficult to make cooks understand when we say we want it damp meaning not dry. If .Anna makes that kind, into which the strawberry juice soaks to make the tastiest morsel human ever ate— the very kind that mother used to make—then Anna is likely anytime to see a stranger at the door begging a handout.

Beery is the ideal forts into channels of high-powered farce and turns in one of his most finished performances. Hardly as notable as Reunion in Vienna, Twentieth Century, from, the point of view of sheer acting, serves as a better vehicle for Mri Barryrnore's genius, and therefore takes its place along with his last, season's four-star effort at comedy. Productions like this revive a sometimes waning hope that the cinema is outgrowing its swaddling combination of Don Quixote, Dillinger, and Napoleon," as Time aptly puts it. It is the climax to a career of remarkable screen characterizations. However, Wallace Is but the central figure of a mighty drama. His supporting cast is as outstanding than the dance fee. Mrs. M. J. Quinn opened the club- aiotiso Sunday, and on dance evening she will serve sandwiches anc other lunches to all who desire siidi service. The club's beer permit will be granted before Monday night.

As is so many times the case in productions of merit, this one is based on satire, and, strangely, this subtle, illusive quality is best portrayed by those who have the intelligence to sense its possibilities.

The audience reaction of complete sympathy for a man guilty of almost every crime in the moral category was interesting. It was carefully built up from the very beginning of the picture. We see Beery's father, in the opening scenes, flogged to death by cruel tyrants. We are revolted by the spectacle of six men hanged in cold blood for a minor misdemeanor. After that our sympathies are entirely with the bandit. Stuart Erwin takes the part of the young newspaperman intended for Lee Tracy before the latter's disgraceful episode in Mexico got him into disrepute with the authorities and all but wrecked the picture. Erwin fills his role, we ing a hand without a face card. After bridge refreshments were served. Former Algoninn's IVIdow Weds— The Rev. A.

There governor is not a Knowing nothing about farms literature frankly der an alias, concocted its spoke of it as a gross income "or general sales" tax. Shortly afterwards there was a fiery battle in •congress over federal sales taxa- -fion. Congress rejected the sales tax on the ground that it was unfair to the poor.

Strange that men of undoubted intelligence nourish the notion that merely providing more money, silver or paper, will restore prosperity. Money is of no use unless it it was their own program, concoc- •t«d to embarrass Hoover, but they couldn't put it over. Democrat after democrat stood up and inveigh•ed against it. That fight put the gross income taxers wise to the fact that call- •iag their scheme a general sales tax would advise the public of its .real nature, so they quietly dropped the phrase "or general sales" "*mt of their literature. The Ad- Tance still 'has one of the original "booklets if Mr. Jarnagin would to see it. But though the promoters of tlhe gross income tax could change Its name they couldn't change its •mature, and a general tax it re- anains, as anyone who stops ten seconds to think can see. For everyone's income is obtained from *he sale of his services or goods, and the tax would 'be laid or -what one receives from sales, ex acUy as it is now levied under t'li new sales tax law. Now, tlhen, it being demonstrat «d. that the gross income tax i nothing but a sales tax in disguise •what is the matter with genera -iales taxation?

But, curiously enough, man people cannot see that a tax liki tte general sales tax makes hash of this principle. They do not think deeply enough to see that a lar against everybody in the same proportion or at the same rate is axrt a tax based on ability to pay because it lets the rich man off with less sacrifice than is required -«t the poor man. Many people look at the proposed gross income tax of one-half of one per cent and without thinking it out say, "Why, what could be fairer than to tax everybody at the same rate?" The trouble is that the gross income tax or any other general sales tax, while it taxes at the same rate in money, does not tax at the same rate in sacrifice because it reduces the poor man's standard of living and does not touch that of the rich man. What confuses people who do not thmk things out is that the tax «Ue is low. If instead of one-half •of one per cent Mr. Jarnagin will assume a tax of ,9!) per cent he will see how it works out to an unfair thing as between the poor and the rich. Let us assume this rate and that a given $1,000 a poor man's year and a income is given rich man's income a million a year. Now collect the tax, and the poor man lias left $10, while the rich man bas $10,000. This illustrates the principle involved whether the tax be low or high. Even in rich Iowa thousands on thousands live on incomes of a a tiig banks because banks are afraid to lend and business fears to borrow. It is time for sober thinking about how to vote a week from Monday. This is particularly true for republicans as regards the candidates for governor and lieutenant governor. More than any other the aen who occupy these positions will shape the state's policies during the coming two years. It is discouraging for all who believe in democracy to consider congress. Seldom is any great question decided on its merits. Practically everyone in both houses is merely a trader seeking advantages for his own constituents regardless of the interests of the country at large. It is not their fault; it is ours, for unless they do this we throw them out. That the newspapers still have the right of free speech under the constitution is demonstrated daily by what they print. The Chicago papers in particular are violent against the administration, and there are many others from coast to coast and the Canadian line to the gulf. Mr. Roosevelt is no dictator yet, and time is disclosing that he has never thought of trying to become one. literature he could get together about agriculture and crammed himself, day and night, like a college boy preparing for examination at the end of the first semester. Then he went out to make his first inspection. The first animal he ran into was a billy goat. He tried to recall the description of farm animals printed in the books on agriculture, but could not classify the species. The billy goat simply didn't fit in. Ashamed to display his ignorance, on returning from his inspection trip he telephoned to a friend, giving a ; description of the animal, and asking what it might be? The description was as follows: "He had large, sad eyes, a straggling long beard, rough and unkempt hair and his behind was bare." "Hell, man, that wasn't an animal! That was the farmer who applied for the loan." ALAS, I'VE NEVER quite grown up; when raiding my own pantry or ice box I still suffer that guilty feeling, as if I were a burglar or a greedy gamin.—H.

[Clipped from Damfino.] We were chopping wood recently and in the middle of the afternoon decided we were hungry, so went into the house and there, on the table before us, were some magnificent buns, freshly baked. The wife had stepped out for a moment, but no matter—we tore off a bun, buttered it and were in the midst of devouring it when the lady of the house reappeared, took one look, then screamed in horror: "Those buns are for the club!"

This is one of those uninspired cinemas that offer no excuses for their existence — they appear suddnely from the Nowhere and disappear just as: silently into the Forgotten Land of Limbo. It is a story of bull-fighting, and some of the scenes in bull-pen and arena, are marvels of realism. In fact the shots of the bull-fighting are alone worth the price of admission. George .Raft, never a convincing actor to us, goes about the grim business of trying to inject into hsi characterization some realism, but never even approaches his goal. He is always George Raft, sold on George Raft, betting heavily on George Raft. In contrast to Raft's superficiality is the sincere effort of Adolph Menjou, who really turns in a creditable characterization as a bandit chief who poses as a respectable citizen till the final reel, when he narrowly escapes detection. Adolph fits easily into almost any character part, and this one, in particular, gives him unusual opportunities to enlarge his following of admirers. Katherine De Mille (daughter, we believe, of the famed Cecil) is splendid in a minor role in her first screen appearance. She plays a native Mexican servant girl's part in the opening scenes. But the bright and shining light of the production is a flashy, sensuous brunette, Frances Drake, who vamps her way voluptuously through the reels with an abandon which would make a Cleopatra wince. We won't pass judgment on her ability to act; we were too busy following the luscious curves of her shapely body and the sensuous droop of her mouth to know whether Frances turned in even a tolerable job of acting. She danced the rumba, she kissed passionately, she hesitated divinely, and she "got her man"— even Mae West couldn't do more! Incidentally, this was Bank Night, and three $25 prizes were distributed. A large and enthusiastic crowd filled the theater, jammed two lobbies, and flowed out over the sidewalk and well into the street. Algona, on Bank Night must present a busy sight to transients. Our town is the mecca of all pleasure seekers for miles around, and crowds like these don't do any town any harm. WIVA VILLA ^ thunderous lamorous bandit-outlaw done against a background of sweeping plains, rocky Mexican slopes, and a gigantic battlefield. It is unquestionably one of the major achievements of the screen, comparable only, perhaps, with such productions as The Birth of a Nation. It s like a great cyclorama, with the two-fold purpose of a panoramic ncture on the one hand, and the depicting in minutest detail of individualistic scenes on the other. After two years of most discouraging efforts fraught with vast expenditure of money and human pa- ience and perseverance, Viva Villa emerges as a stupendous spectacle of human struggle and slavery, the old-age battle of peon and master he soil and the pavement. This is Hustrated in two scenes, first, when a dying peon picks up a handful of dirt, second when Villa himself, condemned to death crawls on his hands and knees before a ruthless aristocrat, and also lifta a handful of dirt heavenward as a symbol of the deliverance of an oppressed people. Tracy would have done, for the latter is a noisy actor, and there is enough racket in Viva Villa as it is. Fay Wray has one dramatic scene with Wallace in which shows her talents as an emotional actress. All other minor parts, including many natives, are carefully chosen and add to the tremendous driving power of this great production. The musical accompaniment i simply superb. The martial strain is predominant, and there is a ris ing crescendo for the clirna? scenes reminiscent of the orches tral accompaniment In the Birth o a Nation when it barn-stormed th country years ago. The grand climax in Viva Villa I the scene wherein we find Beery drunk, discouraged, an outcas from his country, asleep in a dirtj hotel in Texas.
