IN THE LAST YEAR As everyone recalls there was a •sensational rise in prices a year ago in which agricultural products participated, com on farms rising to 50c. Then there was a recession •which caused so much grumbling among mid-western farmers that President Roosevelt addressed a radio speech to them in which he definitely promised restoration of parity between agricultural and other said. prices. "Do it we will," he showing maintain that the gross income tax as a means of reducing property taxation would be a delusion and a snare. The answer must have occurred instantly to a good many readers of the News-Herald, or would have occurred to them if they had given the question a moment's thought. For while it is true that something did reduce the governor's real property taxes (and for the sake of argument let the credit go to the gross income tax), yet to show that and nothing more is pointless and proves exactly nothing. Obviously the demand for reduction in property taxation carries with it the corollary that no new taxes be levied to offset the reduction. To pay taxes out one pockel instead of another is no relief. Yei by the terms of the News-Herald's own argument, that is all that has been done in the governor's case assuming that he sold produce ot other personal property producet on the farm and paid the gross in come tax on the proceeds. What the News-Herald needs to do to make its case complete is to secure a statement showing wha was sold off the- farm during the gross income tax year in question Since the governor does not live 01 the land his tenant's sales should be included. On the aggregate sum thus ar rived at let the gross income ta> KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE. ALQONA.

No long-time assessment is yet possible. The act in question defined its objective as the restoration of the 1909-14 exchange power of agricultural products for other products. Figures now released by the agricultural department itself show that this objective has not been achieved, and that in fact there .lias been on the whole no progress •whatever towards restoration of parity.

Otherwise not much improvement s looked for till the fall crop movement begins and merchants' start to stock up for the fall and vinter trade. The idea nowadays seems to be .o take all the risk out of banking 'or both bankers and depositors. Theoretically this seems the only thing to do.

The foregoing facts seem to justify the following comment by Geo. 32.

It is certain that its difficulties have not been wholly of its own making, or even entirely on the side of the farmer, but have come in important degree from ^outside of agriculture. "Rising costs and prices in the industries under the NRA program 3xa.ve been at the expense of the farmer, advancing the prices of everything he buys, and they have placed the AAA in the position of THIS nial element.

Thirty-Day Princess is an improbable fairy-tale romance, well acted and competently produced by a well chosen cast of screen favorites. Sylvia Sidney is the Princess or Taronia, who, by her charming personality, hopes to "sell" a bom issue in the United States. When she contracts mumps on her arrival in this country, a second-rate actress (Miss Sidney doubles in the picture) doubles for her, and com plications arise. The psuedo prin cess falls in love with a' crusadin editor (Gary Grant), and is almos exposed in the end; but Romance swinging lustily to the front, soft ens this disagreeable denouemen with a reassuring kiss, and all well that ends well. The picture is brought up to dat by sly references to the 59c dolla and by views of the new Burlingto crack flyer, an artful bit of screen technique which acknowledges th fact that Thirty-Day Princess wil be a picture of only temporary in terest.

Myrna Loy, one of our ruling screen favorites, has a penchant 'or leaving her men at a time when things come to a critical stage. She leaves Gable when she decides she would make some man a good wife, and she leaves Powell when she finds that his principles of right and wrong interfere with friendship for a pal whom he has sent to the electric chair. Such conflict between love, honor, and the law has always been a source of uneasiness to us. Just what is one to do when a combination of circumstances (usually born in the fertile mind of some brain truster) precipitates a crisis that necessitates decision? The bare outlines of the plot are more plausible than the working out of the story. There are many improbabilities too apparent to overlook. And there are "moments" too poignant to pass. The friendship between Powell, of the law, and Gable the Lawless; the secret love and admiration of Myrna for the gambler even after her marriage to righteousness—too bad she couldn't have been more constant—are examples. But after all the subtle quality of love knows no bounds and is not hemmed in by creed or principle. When Myrna renounces Gable because Powell "opens car doors for her" and treats her like a lady, it looks fishy to us. And when she leaves Powell because he refuses to do something which, under any code, would be unethical, she IB just plain asinine. Nevertheless Manhattan Melodrama runs true to form. In the end Loy and Powell are reunited and fade off into the darkness clasped in each other's arms, swearing—everlast- George Coles Lose Home and Contents in Fire at Cooper Mr. and Mrs. Geo. G.

If you enjoy suffering all the discomforts of the operating table (the inflating and deflating gas bag, the tools of torture, the white clad nurses and doctors), if you go in for this sort of self punishment, you, certainly had a "wow" of a time at Once to Every Woman. They literally "gave you the works." Outside of this, the picture is a complete wash-out. Fay Wray and Ralph Bellamy perform, and the theme, if we are able to work out such a puzzle in the heat, is love. We weren't aware that love comes to every woman only once, but we'll skip that. Exhibit number two was The Merry Frinks, and a goofier, nuttier mess of useless nonsensicali- ties has seldom been foistered on an unsuspecting public.

Despite obvious, glaring shortcomings, this is fast, sophisticated, lurid underworld drama, ably directed and superbly photographed by one James Wong Howe, Chinese cinematographer. A trio of favorites performs the sacred offices, one happily cast, two hopelessly miscast. To proceed with the obituary— Our drama opens with the General Slocum disaster, in which two lads are left orphans. As the years unfold one develops into a studious, law-abiding lawyer, the other into a reckless gambler—with a mistress. William Powell plays the righteous role, Clark Gable that of the gambler, Myrna Loy the mis- >reathless expectancy. It is till the last scene that the trick is uncovered. Otto Kruger, one of our most 'inlshed actors, plays the leading role with a precision and a nicety which add much to the enjoyment of the Crime Doctor. Karlen Morley is excellent as wife, and Nils Asther makes an ideal type for the lover caught in the meshes of the wily detective's nefarious scheme.
