THi: LO(JH'AL ('HOICK FOIl IIKPUJJUCAXS As regards choice of nominee for the governorship democrats are faced by no problem of consequence. A comparatively unknown representative in the legislature named Zylstra opposes Governor Herring, and there is also candidate at Sioux City, but it is not likely that either will receive more comes to mind here- Heading mak- eth a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man. All three go with the 'habit of study. Nothing pays so well in the long run as intimacy -\vibh sood books. The young man or woman doomed to go tlirough life without association with the best literature of the ages is to be pitied. One who loves books never is lonesome. This does not mean fiction, leasi of all the general run of modern fiction; it means fiction 1 only sparingly, and then only by the mar'ters. It is a sad fact that out of every 100 people 99 are intellectual morons: they can read nothing but newspapers or trashy magazines, and many are incapable of anything beyond the sports or comic pages. This country sorely needs more young men and women who early form and throughout life pursue habits of study in. leisure time. At The Call Theatre I A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H. C.

The basic principle of Crockett Hall (fashionable school for rich girls) is that almost anything is permissible which is discreetly done. In other worda "Don't get caught." Under the thin veneer of our so-called morality, the same principle seems to apply. There is constant emphasis on reputation and what-wlll-people-say and much too little on ethics, es- *»»».v»i.r LIIH.L, ^n.u\;i MJII i^v.v.ivt; u-i vi \j - i • i • i 11 • than a handful of votes.

Added to this principle of "ap- democratic standpoint there seems to be no good reason why Governor Herring should not receive overwhelming endorsement for renoin- ination. For republicans the decision is not so foregone.

The cast consists of 25 principals, and there are 75 speaking parts, many extras so important that for the first time in picture- making all other activities in the studio had to bo held up during filming. Look at Boris Karloff, who paid Arliss the finest of tributes by stepping down from stardom to take a feature role, appearing as the wicked Baron Ledrantz, most powerful antagonist of the Roths- childs.

It turns out that in a speech in February, 1933, President Hoover said the same thing that Secretary Wallace recently said, towit, that America must choose between internationalism in trade and na- for line and finally skte fearful of' condolences nub" " a n d an." nomination convention. Mr. Colflesh, who is a newcomer In state politics, first came into statewide notice last winter as the ifederal district attorney who conducted the cases against Lieut.- Gov. Kraschel and one Beh, of Des Moines. In view of the outcome it would seem that these prosecutions were ill advised, though how responsibility should be divided between Mr. Colflesh and Washington is obscure. It Is in own inherent own inherent con- weakness. There are many lessons to learn in Finishing School. What makes this a realy vincing picture of a phase of our American snobbery Is an all-star cast headed by the sincere acting of Frances Dee. Honest to begin with, compelled by laudible code of ethics, she finally succumbs to de- tionalism, and urged the same ceit and treachery, when she learns choice—International trade. But Mr. Wallace gets all the credit. Redistribution of wealth means higher taxes for everybody, higher formance. Helen Westley, distinguished stage actress, director of the New York Theater Guild, does a superb piece of work as Gudula, the mother of the Rothchilds. Her triumphant laugh, her strong will to have her own way and live in the old home in Frankfort, where she mothered her five famous sons, her rarely shown tenderness and pride in these sons, make her a most endearing figure. She has some of the most clever lines in the play. When asked about dying she gives money and life phraseology when she says, "Why should the Lord take me at 88, when he can get me at 100!" Loretta Young, not enough to vote, comes movie-minded family. UNION RURAL SCHOOLS DAY BIG SUCCESS Afternoon's Program Follows Sports in the Morning. By AHon II. Wood.

"" Mr. Knutson's candidacy is unique in that it is based on a platform of a single plank, one that is new and revolutionary — the gross Income tax. For all state, county, and local taxes Mr. Knutson would substitute a percentage tax on ev- «ry person's gross income. He believes a tax of one-half of one per cent would turn the trick. This Utopian scheme is peculiarly adapted to mass consumption. •Its simplicity attracts voters who] •have never studied taxation and are confused by its present com- Ijlexities.

HOW YOUNG PEOPLE CAN BEST EMPLOY LEISURE TIME When the Seneca high school aeniors and juniors visited Algona •to question business and professional men about vocations they asked about avocations also, that IS. what to do with the leisure time that tihe New Deal envisions. Results were disappointing. The Tpupils reported to the superintendent that the Algonians sidestepped the question professing that '*hey never had leisure time and therefore could not say what to do With it. Wihat is done with leisure time tander either the Old Deal or ti'.is New is important, and it is particularly important that young people develop right uses while they are at the age when lifelong ihabits are formed. *' There are many good ways to •employ leisure, and what to choose -depends a great deal on one's bent. •This is us true of avocations as of vocations. One who llias a 'bent for gardening, for example, might -not be satisfied at anything else. •Perhaps the most desirable year (around avocation for all who can cultivate a taste for it is continued fitudy. The young person w!ho ceases to study when school is left fcehind is forever handicapped. For continued study serves not only as «n avocation but as preparation jtor greater achievement in one's "Vocation, no matter what tloe voca- Tribute to Coivles and Inglmm.

Story City Herald—General Johnson recently said that a reaction against the blue eagle has set in that it must be met by a new readjustment. There is a growing feeling on the part of many business men that the NRA is tending to delay, rather than accelerate the work of recovery. Another Democrat in Reverse. Traer Star-Clipper—One of the significant developments of the day in national politics is the frequency with which the so-called 'old line" democrats are. inclined :o criticize certain phases of the New Deal, One of the latest to offer sharp criticism Is Governor Joseph B. Ely, of Massachusetts. Turner the Logical Choice. Knoxville Journal—The logic of he political situation points straight to Dan W. Turner as the candidate of the republican party 'or the office of governor. He is a known quantity, not an experiment. He has the mature ability sound judgment, independent character, proven integrity, and moral purpose needed in the position. Allotment Ups and Downs. Emmtesburg Democrat — Will Joynt, member of the county allotment committee, remarked Saturday noon that he was bubbling over with good humor. It seems he found a farmer who was well satisfied with the work of the five laboring members of the committee. In the afternoon, however he dropped in to tell us he was in bad escents but we should dislike seeing thoughtful, earnest productions like this barred from the screen simply because they are not fit for our young people. A three-reel musical, Look For the Silver Lining, from the musical success Sally, completed a well- balanced and really delightful bill. T AUGHING BOY, a la cinema, • L/ fails to catch the delicate wistful, atmospheric quality of the Pulitzer prize novel of a few seasons ago. As we recall this rather vague etherial book, there was a subtle mystery about it—the lure of the desert, endless stretches of sand, hot, sultry winds, dry, parched panoramas. Into this background of un- appears . — maiden, me story never even approaches reality, and for this reason (and this is so often the case) most critics, we fear, read more of enduring fame into the fragile novel, than even the author dreamed of when he labored over his manuscript. We have often suspected that the way to achieve contemporary fame and greatness in literature (or any other field of Art, for that matter) is to write something that no one can understand. Then the critics, for fear of being accused of stupidity and ignorance, proclaim it as a this Indian boy and his Arliss gives great Credit to Mrs Arliss for his success, refeMin" to her as "the lady with the nice arms" and saying she has been responsible for the wisest decisions he has made. She always appears in his plays when she can play the role of the happy, devoted wife which she is in real life. Their romance is one of the most idealistic in the history of the theater. They have been married 30 years, and are said to be as much in love as on that rainy day long ago when they took refuge in an empty theater, and George proposed to pretty Florence Montgomery. ST JOHN'S SCHOOL ENDS BALL SEASON WITH ONE DEFEAT Bancroft, May 30—The St. John's 'high school baseball team closed its season last Thursday, when "it defeated the Cambridge All-Stars a traveling: junior team, on tihe local diamond, 7-5.

No one knows whether it contains lasting merit no one really understands it, and so it is acclaimed one of the literary masterpieces of the century But to get back to Laughing Boy There is nothing subtle about the screen version . Ramon Novarro takes the part of hero with rather amazing aptitude, and Lupe Valez makes a convincing heroine- Jut their amours, their love-mak- ngs are as plain as the nose on four face. And the scenes of Lupe n her private brothel leave nothing o the imagination. In this particular the book is infinitely superior to the cinema. Laughing Boy is not a box-office attraction, for the simple «• V. n 4- T_ j; i . * had lost in 16.

IVheru the Urain Trusters Err. Atlantic News-Telegraph—When Henry Wallace or any of the other brains truster gets started talking about a new order where personal profit shall be taken out of business in this country, they give us a large-sized pain in the neck. What is the use of talking kind of stuff in a country ours? No one who works that like and serves the public does so here in the United States but for the hope of gain. Inconsistency Among Figurers. Shenandoah Sentinel— It is an old adage that figures do not lie, may be, Sacon'a well worn aphorism , but a wag improved the adage by adding the words, but figurers do. We are reminded of this when we read what purports to be official figures stating how many millions of unemployed men have been put to work in the past few months under the beneficient operations of the new deal, and then read other figures equally "official" stating that the peak of the unemployment was only recently reached. At best, then, all we can say about Laughing Boy is that the laugh is on the paleface and not on the redskin, '"THE HOUSE OF ROTHSCHILD, and historic play, is the most distinguished of all the film years Its background is practically the whole of Europe during the Napol- eanic wars, and it is in the main historic, since it follows the rise of the still world famous House of Rothschild, a name meaning red shield. school team this year are: Grant Ledyard Burt Wesley Titonka Lone Rock Seneca Seneca Lone :Rock Eurt Grant Bancroft 3 21 4 8 2 10 29 21' 3 4 14 Opp. 3 2 1 5 1 1 0 2 2 high Opp. 18 12 son, Charlene Rath, Eugene Broderson, and Durwood Rutledge.

County Superintendent Speaks. Mr. Griffith was followed by County Supt. Shirley, who had some interesting things to say in relation to the .work in rural sponsorship of the Union township Mothers & Daughters club, Rural Schools day has been repeated each vear since, and each year has seen improvement in details and procedure, though there has been lacking in recent years the artistic beauty of exhibits which characterized the earlier exhibitions and thrilled patrons and friends. This year the parents of the graduates, under direction of Mrs. Harvey, committee for tihe club, took charge of the decorating and other responsibilities and did an exceedingly efficient and artistic job. For the first time the graduating class this year had class colors, pale green and pink, which were carried out by the decorating committee. schools in Union township. Since 1912 there have been 167 graduates trom the eighth grade up to and including the present year. A num- aer have attained places of prominence in farm, business', and in professional lives. The disturbing :actor is that the record through the same period shows that only one-third to one-half of the pupils enrolled were graduated Another item of interest was the hagih enrollment in comparison with town schools. In Kossuth ounty there is an enrollment of about 2500 pupils in rural schools about the same number in town sdhools helow high school, and about 1000 m 14 four-year approved high schools. Diplomas Are Presented. On the conclusion of Mr. Shirley's remarks A. M.
