Sherman, of E. E. Taylor, of the Traer Star- What Mr. Sherman says him by the community is strictly true, and this in fact is the principal reason why the establishment of such a store at Algona has met with so little public criticism. To an independent in politics it is discouraging to note how many ordinarily sensible men lightly discard principles to. follow party. The democrats are doing it now, but the republicans are no better when they are in power. This is one of the great faults of popular government, and many a misstep would be avoided if it were not so. Opinions o£ Editors There never has Hussia. Aside from England and France the only European states where full liberty as we know it are. the smaller states, such as Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, and Sweden and Norway. Outside Europe liberty exists only in the states of the British commonwealth and in the Americas, and in some of the American nations it is not much more than an imitation. It is a curious thing to recall that only 15 years ago the United States was engaged in a war to make the world safe for democracy. What have been the results? Russia threw off one yoke of oppression only to put on another. Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, not to mention lesser countries, have not embraced democracy, but have gone back 2,000 years in history to revamp the dictatorships of ancient Rome. There has not been a time since the American government was founded •when democracy was in greater danger than it is now throughout the world. Pew in America understand how rare and precious is the boon of liberty. The present generation grew up to liberty, and the generations before it for 300 years. American liberty is therefore taken for granted, like air and water. It is left to the delvers in musty tomes to discover that liberty is a rare privilege which ought to be the most jealously guarded thing in the world. The barons won Magna Carta Jrom King John 700 years ago, but that was for themselves, not the common people. It took the Wars of the Roses to put the barons down and restore the kings to near-absolutism. Here and there in the process the people gained a few rights. Finally they got the power of the purse, and then they 3iad both kings and barons where they wanted them. But it took 200 years more to complete the process. Bit ny bit, and always against entrenched opposition, every liberty that Englishmen enjoy today was won by slow, patient development. It was not till our own day that the House of Xiords was finally overcome. It was not till long after the American revolution that universal male suffrage independent of the ownership of property prevailed in all the states. _ It is time for a reassessment of the value of liberty, not only in the rest of the world but in our own Country. Liberty is confessedly in danger in all of Europe except England and the Scandinavian Countries. Even in France a major crisis could bring a dictatorship. It remains for England, the British fcommonwealths, and America to maintain liberty, and to that end it •Is well that they look within with ft sharp and jealous eye to see that no jot of tittle of their own liberties is allowed to be put in jeop- fcrdy. fOMKS OF LETTING THE ANTI.TJtUST IJAK.S DOWN For some years the Advance has „..

If I can tell you how many birthdays you have letter .had, will you take this magazine? print the Advance, and it is purchased in lots of a ton or more.

Logan Observer—As a politicaJ masterpiece nothing ever hung in the Iowa gallery even approaches the old age pension law now in operation. As a vote trap it is an excellent piece of work. Looks Like Turner Anyway. Forest City Summit—The Davenport Times, the Cedar Rapids Gazette, the Mason City Globe-Gazette and' the Lee Syndicate dailies have announced their opposition to Dan Turner's election as governor. This may be too bad for Turner, but it is our guess he will be elected any way. Patterson vs. Krnschel. Estherville Daily News — Mr. Patterson has as his opponent in the general election Nelson Kraschel, a devoted parent and proud sponsor of Iowa's new nuisance sales tax. Mr. Patterson is among the bitterest opponents of that form of taxation, and, like his running mate, Mr. Turner, wants a fairer sort of tax. Maybe That's the Idea. Albia Union-Republican — The Frasier-Lemke bill practically eliminates farm foreclosures. Coupled with the forced scaling down of debts, other mortgage moratoriums, intermediate credit loans, and commissioner loans, these measures make the federal government just about the only source the farmer can look to in the future for long term financing.

Humboldt Republican—When the administration has power to tell business what hours it can keep open, what wages it must pay em- ployes, how many hours they can work, what prices it can sell its wares at, where it can establish itself, and where it can maintain itself, surely there are avenues into which it can reach to make business life impossible for those who spread thought offensive to those in power. Doc took the bet without batting an eye. "One," said the young lady, brightly, "and you have been celebrating its anniversary ever since." Yes, there is a new magazine in Doc's waiting room now. THE COLYUM continues to miss the genial presence of old George Gallarno as editor of Plain Talk. A copy of the Advance was mailed to him at Des Moines the other week, but the postoffice advised that he was no longer there. Ed M. Smith, of the "Winterset Madisonian, writes that Mrs. Gallarno is an invalid, and possibly they had to change climates. They have no children and Mr. Gallarno has to care for her. Psst!

[Estherville Daily News.] One wife whose husband has been playing kittenball this summer phoned us today and said, "Why all this excitement over the fact that some jackasses are ifoing to play kittenball in the local ball yard Friday night?" "Because," we told her, "it's rather unusual for a Plays KcvicAVcd This Week- Paris Interlude. Bureau of Missing Persons. Handy Andy. P ARIS INTERLUDE (first issued under the title of All Good Americans) holds out much promise in both plot and cast. What a fertile field for romance and intrigue in that City of Love, Paris, and who could better interpret that subtle emotion than suave, polished Otto Krueger? While Mr. Krucger makes the character of the drunken newspaper man perfectly plausible, the later developments of his mistaken death somehow sour on the palate. Perhaps it is the suffering of Madge Evans (never a favorite with us); perhaps it is the fact that this is one plot we could untangle; perhaps it is the unrealistic shots of Lindbcrg's flight- something went screwy somewhere. Or perhaps it is that monster, Sacrifice, become almost a gospel in our movies, which is beginning to turn our sensitive stomach. We have had suffering mothers (whole armies of them), then suffering fathers, and now we must also have suffering sweethearts, and last, but almost least, suffering lovers! Magnanimous, bighearted he-nian lovers, who give up their women willingly, smilingly (behind the proverbial tear) in order that these women may taste happiness with newly-found paramours. Otto Krueger is as capable of registering all these human emotions and contradictions as any male actor we know, but Paris Interlude goes just a little stale at the end notwithstanding Una Merkel's delicate and subtle scene in the closing sequence. Can a thing die and come to life almost in the same breath? Maybe that's what happens to this picture. W E MADE A DESPERATE effort to attend a Tuesday night show at the Call, and after canceling an order for "dinner and bride" we did see The Bureau of Missing Persons, a -rambling, incoherent treatment of an intensely interesting subject, so deftly handled by a cast of such outstanding merit that even the loosely connected theme was held together by interest in the characterizations. What happens to the thousands of people who "drop out of sight" in the United States every year is a question which has perplexed everyone who has given it even the slightest thought. The Bureau of Missing Persons gives a lucid, interesting explanation of many of these disappearances, and besides weaves a love and mystery angle into the plot which saves the cinema from mediocrity. Look at this cast—Lewis Stone, Glenda Farrell, Alan Dinehart, Bette Davis, Allen Jenkins, Hugh Herbert, Ruth Donnelly, Pat O'Brian—not to mention a host of minor stars who escape memory. Outstanding, however, is the work of Bette Davis, slight, rather insipid-looking blonde who since her appearance in Of Human Bondage, has registered heavily with critics all over the country. Her work in this present production is penetrating, vital, human, convincing. The Big Bad Wolf, a colored Silly Symhpony depending on the popularity of last year's Three Little Pigs, only strengthens our conviction that this is cinema's most notable offering to the Arts. Here is the pinnacle of the Motion Picture to date. Perhaps there have been dramas more poignant, comedies more moving, and historical plays more perfectly done, but taken as a whole, in the cast panorama of the silver screen, Walt Disney's colored cartoons must take place in the front ranks. Here we have pictorial beauty, originality of theme and treatment, and appeal to young and old alike— what other developments in motion pictures can boast a trio like this? of headache powders to folks who have a good time!" In other words, the way of the transgressor is a tough one. At least, so the timid souls like to bo told. And Andy tells 'era! jackass to play "Humph!" she humphed, "I know one jackass who's been playing kit- tenball all summer!" THE OTHER WEEK it was? announced on Page 1 that the correct pronunciation of "rodeo" is "ro-day-o," accent on the penultimate. Now comes Ella Thompson, backed by Lura Sanders, and says the Webster's in the Advance shop is away out of date. It's "rody-o," they claim, in the latest dictiqnar- ies. Very well.

W E ARE INCLINED to agree with the trailer (Wfe listened to the ding-blasted thing a dozen times, it seemed — that "Handy Andy" is positively Will Rogers' funniest picture." The audience reaction at the Call on the opening night was tremendous. It is the first picture on record to be roundly applauded in our sedate playhouse. Laughter was so continuous and prolonged that it was impossible to catch more than half of the lines. If clean, wholesome pictures like Handy Andy receive such public response, what's all this censorship shootin' about? After all, isn't this the answer to our problem? If there's money in Handy Andys, the producers will make 'em regardless iof demands by the League of Decency. Well, Handy Andy is just a typical Will Rogers picture — except that it is one of his best, if not the best. The late Marie Dressier and "Uncle" Bill have this much in common, they always appear as their homely, natural selves. One of the best scenes in the present picture is that wherein Andy's wife calls him to meet her distinguished friends, and he appears from a hotel bedroom in shirt sleeves and horn-rimmed specs. Another tremendously funny sequence is the pigeon scene, wherein Mrs. Yates attempts a singing lesson while doves fly through the rooms, finally landing full in the face of the musical instructor. The picture is deftly paced with laughs and suspense. The final scenes of the Yates 1 return from a riotous journey to the Mardi Gras is a clever build-up of both humor and dramatic denoument. Andy has his drug store, his daughter is happily married, and his wife has found, like Jurgen of old, that what she had traveled far and wide to find is right at her back door-step. Yes, Handy Andy is the solution of most of our problems, real and visionary, actual and cinematical. Perhaps Andy puts it all in a nutshell, when, early in the play, a customer chides him for not having a good time. Says Druggist Andy philosophically, "I sell a lot GAME PLAN IS DESCRIBED BY WARDEN HERE Tells Kiwanians How Restoration Will Be Made. Frederick (Fritz) Pierce, new game warden who with his wife lives in the Vera apartments, spoke last Thursday before the Kiwanis club on the duties of game wardens under the new plan of fish and game control. The job is not wholly a police job, as many suppose, and in fact the arrest of law violators is only a small part of the duties of a warden, he said. Mr. Pierce gave the same talk at Monday's Rotary club luncheon. The state is now engaged in a great program of wild game rehabilitation and management, Mr. Pierce declared, and the duties of the warden in this respect require most of his time. This country is now in the fourth stage of its game history, Mr. Pierce said, and he gave a short review of wild game in America from a historical standpoint. The four stages are pre-pioneer, pioneer, civilized, and modern. When Birds IVerc Plentiful. In the pre-pionecr /stage wild life was in balance, that is, there was about the same number of ducks, grouse, other birds, fish, etc., year after year. There was plenty of all kinds, and Indians were not so numerous but that the balance remained despite losses from the activities of man. In the 'pioneer stage balance was disturbed. In some cases the birds increased in number; in others they rapidly decreased. For instance the spike-tailed grouse or prairie chicken for a time rapidly increased, because the pioneers killed or drove off predatory animals whose takings for food had kept the grouse population down. Some other bird life decreased because pioneer clearings cut down feeding and nesting grounds. Civilization Decreases Number. Then in the civilized period all game decreased in number, though remaining plentiful for a time. But the extension of farming areas, the drainage of swamps, and clearing of forest areas neighboring streams accounted for more loss to the bird population than killing by hunters. Birds could no longer find enough nesting places in which to rear their young; there was no winter protection in plowed fields; weed control eliminated refuges where birds had found protection and food in winter. The close of the civilized period arrived at about the time of the World war. The country was by that time completely settled, drainage was practically completed, and cultivation under the influence of war prices increased till nearly all ground suitable for agriculture was in use. Time Now for Replacement. Finally arrived the present replacement period. The Chinese or Mongolian pheasant was introduced and fared exceedingly well under strict enforcement of anti- shooting laws. The peak of the pheasant population was reached in 1928, and through shooting and natural causes has decreased since Pheasants, like other birds and like wild animals, have a cycle, rapidly increasing or rapidly decreasing over long periods from natural causes. With the birth of the present commission form of-game control came realization of conditions and the inception and the putting into effect of real game management. There is, however, little conservation work now to be done, for most of the native birds are extinct The introduction of hardy hard-to- drive out game like the pheasants is now the only resource. Farmers' Cooperation Sought, For this reason a definite plan to propagate game birds as a "crop" with cooperation of farmers has been undertaken. A farmer who enters an agreement with the commission leaves corners in his fields as nesting places, lets grass grow in wide patches along fences, and devotes a part of his land to natural birds protection and food In return for such cooperation the farmer is accorded certain rights over birds on his farm. At the recent session of the leirislatm-a the laws of trespass were s\reS ened to insure these rights. Farmers m future may, if they will re ahze a substantial income in season from the sale of hunting privileges o sportsmen permitted to bag a limited number of birds This plan is far-reaching, ' Mr Pierce said, and he predicted that it it is strictly followed game birds will m time become even more plentiful than in pioneer times, and the cost to farmers will be more than met by income from huntimr Privileges and from destruction ot cut-worms, etc., by the birds To this end a beginning has been made by the creation of ct ""iaue DROUGHT HITS WIDE BELT IN SOUTHERN IOWA Writer at Lone .Rock Tells Conditions at Oskaloosa. Oskaloosa, Aug. 4 — The first three tiers of Iowa counties north of the Missouri line have been baked this summer by heat, drought, and a dehumified atmosphere like that of Arizona or New Mexico. Creeks never known to fail before are now dry runs, and wells arc nearly all dry. Most towns in Tills story was written by the Advance's Lono Hock correspondent, Mrs. W. 0. Flnlg, who at (he time was Tisiting her parents, Mr. and JJfrs. T. K. Lewis, Oslcaloosn. Osltaloosa is the scat of ainhaskn county, southeast of DCS Moincs, In the third tier of counties north of the Missouri line. this area, except along the lower Des Moines and Chiquaciua rivers, are short of water. focston Hauls Water. Creston, a town of 8,000 population, has been having 40 railroad tanks of water hauled from the Missouri river at Council Bluffs. Ottumwa is fortunate to have access to the Des Moiucs river, but Wapello county outside of Ottumwa is a waterless waste. Oskaloosa, with 10,000 population, draws water from a natural reservoir in the bed of the Chi- ququa, and so far has not been in danger of a water famine. Almost a Crop Failure. Mahaska county, one of the banner corn-hog counties in the state, has this year come nearest to an entire crop failure in all its history. Pastures dried up early, small grains were practically a failure, and now most of the corn is beyond recovery, though some late corn may make a small crop. Alfalfa and clover have held out fairly well, but fruit will be a minus quantity. Hogs, cattle, sheep, and poultry have been rushed to market all summer, till the farms have been almost completely depleted of livestock. Drought for Four Years. For the last four years the growing season has been hot and dry, but this section held up well till this summer, when torrid winds from the south have absolutely cooked all vegetation. The water level in the ground is eight feet below normal. July is usually the warmest month of the year, but July, 1934, goes into Mahaska weather records as the hottest since temperature records have been kept here, or for a period of 60 years. Twenty-Two Days Above 90. No fewer than 22 days of the month had maximum temperatures above 90, and others were well along in the high 80's. On 11 days the temperature reached or exceeded 100 degrees. High for the month was 109, on the21st, which equalled the all-time high at the Oskaloosa weather station. The mean maximum temperature, 95.9, was a new all-time record; also the maximum readings day after day when the mercury rose above the hundred mark made new all-time records, as did also the monthly mean temperature at 82,5, which was 8.8 degrees in excess of normal. The lowest temperature of the period was 54 on the 7th ult The greatest daily range in temperature was 36 on the 29th, and least was ten on the 13th. Bain on Ten Days. A precipitation of 3.34 inches of ram was .42 inch below the July normal. Rain fell on ten days and there was a trace of rain on six other days. .
