THK FKDKRATi HOUSIXG ACT WILL UK A FLOP "With a sigh of resignation, editors last week recognized the onset of another avalanche of government propaganda, when outgivings from Washington began to arrive almost daily concerning the new Federal Housing act. This is another of the beautiful schemes hatched by brains trusters •which is ballyhooed as if it were a panacea for an economic ill but •will probably be as efficacious, and no more, as the run of ordinary patent medicines. Briefly the idea is that any property owner may go to his bank or other financial institution, sign a , note, and obtain money for needed sion KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALQONA, IOWA July 1, and little prospect of collecting much more, and the chances against more than $2,000,000 next year when the $2 rate takes effect! It is evident that the hopes of thousands of aged and poor people founded on the ill-advised new pension act will not be met. Comparatively few will be allowed any pension at all, and at that the majority will get far under $25 a month. The expense of collection and administration will operate to offset in part or wholly the advertised saving in the poor fund. In the meantime there are no stories in the newspapers about the aged and poor starving to death. They seem to be getting by somehow, the same as the rest of us do, and there has been no complaint that the boards of supervisors have refused aid in needy cases. The conviction grows that this pension act is just another example of the fool laws that every legislature enacts the net result of which is to increase taxes without corresponding benefit. TIMELY The Colyustt Let'i Hot IM too 11—d tteriou* It looks now as if the sales tax would raise only $11,000,000 or so instead of the $15,000,000 or more which its sponsors Estimated. As Representative Bonnstetter pointed out in one of his letters last winter, some $6,000,000 of that is already hypothecated for new appropriations made at the extra ses- repairs or improvements, the funds to be spent in no other way. In theory this will provide work for a class of labor which has suffered greatly during the depression. The bank or financial institution is expected to accept the note at 5 per cent, and not to ask for other security, provided the applicant is a good credit risk and has a source of regular income. The note may run three years, and monthly installments are to be paid. Nothing less than SI00 or more than $2000 may be borrowed. The government agrees to insure the lending institution up to 20 per cent of the aggregate of the notes. Statistics show that this as a rule covers losses where a large amount of such business is done. If the government had gone all the way by insuring losses in full the scheme would work so far as lenders are concerned, but as the at No case stands it will be a flop, least in rural communities. rural bank operated under present conditions is going to accept responsibility for 80 per cent, or any other per cent, of unsecured loans. On the other hand there is little to tempt borrowers. True, the interest rate is low, and the terms as regards time satisfactory. But it haa not been these factors that have retarded borrowing for the purpose of making needed repairs «.nd improvements. Practically the Bole factor has been, and remains, 'that the money must be paid back and few property owners feel sufficiently assured of the future to go into debt. Federal Housing act •or none, they would go ahead if they felt certain of this single factor. The brains trusters will have to Kuess again. Probably some of them are crazy enough to go all the way as regards security. If they can put that over, it will only remain to change the wary psychology of potential borrowers. IS THE FARMER ABOUT TO BECOME A CHISELER? FARM PRICES SURGE TO NEW 3-YEAR PEAKS. — Des Moines ".Register Headline. ROOSEVELT HITS AT FOOD CHISELERS.—Chicago Journal of Commerce Headline. To be fair, let it be stated at •once that Mr. Roosevelt was speaking of the grain and produce exchanges with an eye to preventing undue speculation. Nevertheless there was a be- lt was certainly well for the administration at Washington that the AAA backed down hastily on plans for a second hog quota round-up. Indeed if there ever was the least truth in republican charges that payments were being held up to influence this fall's elections, the chances are that payment now will not appease a great many farmers whom the delay has thoroughly disgusted. In Kossuth total old age pension payments to date aggregate 9299 out of 13,676 liable. This is 67 per cent paid. In the state at large the percentage is 57 plus. On this basis Kossuth is paying more than its share. It will be interesting to see in the end how many persons liable to this tax escape it because they will not pay and have no real estate on which it becomes a lien. Some to-do is now being made by :he state administration over prospects that the sales tax will reduce ;he levy for state purpose to something like a mill or less. This is all that Senator Patterson ever claimed for the state income tax. What has become of last winter's claims that county and local taxes •vould be greatly reduced? These are the taxes that hurt, never the state tax. All the talk about halting profiteering in farm products is ostensibly aimed at operators in the grain and produce markets, which is well enough if it stops there. What farmers need to look out for is regulations under this excuse in the interest of consumers which will prevent them from getting the prices which the situation justifies. The Advance is not permitted to tell all it knows about last week's approval of the Kossuth corn-hog figures, but it can say that our farmers owe to the careful work of everybody concerned in the program, and to the cool heads of the county committee, the fact that there is to be no revision of this county's quota. A NENT THB_COMPLAINTS of Marshals Green and Van Alstyne relative to parking space grabbers (see news columns), this poem of George H. Free's in the Colyum of August 8, 1929, Is appropriate— I've hunted here, I've hunted there, I've wandered up and down— No vacant spot left anywhere In all the dad-blamed town! Like storm-tossed mariner I yearn To moor my weary barque, And yet no matter where I turn I find no place to park. This case of eggs here in the Ford Is wanted at the store; I'd like to take supplies aboard, A hundred pounds or more. Oh had I a refueling plane To drop eggs from the sky! Do heavenly angels search in vain For parking space on high? For forty days a seaman sailed, And scanned the water's face; Full forty days he sought, and failed To find a parking place. And then he sighted Ararat— I'd yield my vital spark For such a lucky break as that, When Noah parked his ark. Britt Flings Another Chnl- Iciifire at the World. [R. R. Roberts in Britt N.-T.] I am wondering if all towns have the great number of widows that Britt has. Here we are, a small country town with less than 1600 population, and nearly a hundred of these are widows. As near as we can ascertain there are at the moment 93 widows living within our town limits. There are also quite a number of men who have lost their wives and classify as widowers. Many homes there are where only one person resides. Just why it is that so many more women are left than men when life partnerships are broken is beyond us to calculate, but it is an interesting study and one that we would like to have other publishers look into and make comparisons with Britt. For the present Britt is going to claim more widows than any town of like population in Iowa. Who can beat us? THIS WRITER AND W. A. Vigars are the same age and will arrive at another milestone September 2. If you take the figure 475, add 59, deduct 257, multiply by 2, and deduct 436, you will arrive at a figure twice their age, which is three years less than that of the courthouse, and they feel a lot older—sometimes.

Plain Talk, D.

The Girl from Missouri. >"pHERE IS ALWAYS something J- excruciatingly funny about the spectacle of a meek, mild-tempered mortal suddenly regaining self- confidence and asserting his rights. A happier exponent of such a type could hardly be Imagined than stuttering, hesitant Charles Ruggles. In Friends of Mr. Sweeney, Mr. Ruggles achieves one of the minor comedy triumphs of the season. We sec our hero first as Asaph Holltday, timid editorial writer for a sheet called The Balance. When his old college pal, Rixey (Eugene Pallette), arrives on the scene, he (Rixey) calls him an old "gympus 1 —something that walks and talks, but lacks a backbone and guts. This arouses Asaph to action. He calls his faithful secretary (Ann Dvorak), who secures another girl, and the foursome starts out for a round of night-clubs. At first refused admittance at the ritziest club Asaph gets by the doorman by claiming that he and his party are friends of "Mr. Sweeney." The rest is simple. Asaph gambles with $2,000, believing it a dollar, and complications develop which raise this little comedy to the heights of farce. The' climax is terrific. Asaph Coils a robbery, Rixey calls out the fire department, and the modest hero claims his willing bride. Harry Tyler, .as bandit chief, contributes a neat bit of character work and is a wow as he sits on an office table and expounds his philosophy to Mr. Brumbaugh and his mistress, who are not at all interested in his dissertations. Friends of Mr. Sweeney is one of Actor Ruggles' funniest roles. The part fits perfectly, and he extracts from his speeches and complications every last drop of droll comedy. Ann Dvorak serves merely as a "feeder" for Funnyman Ruggles' gags, but she does it splendidly. Eugene Pallette as drunken college pal becomes more screamingly funny as the play progresses and reaches his climax when he rings the fire alarm thinking it the elevator bell. Out-of-town readers of this column of criticism may take our word for this one—don't miss it!— it's one of the best laughs of the season. [F THE GIRL FROM deadly flames.

Supporting Miss Harlow in this cinema cup of weak lea is Lionel Barrymore (evidently called from the ranks of decency as a distinguished actor to give dignity to the occasion); the veteran Lewis Stone; and Franchot Tone.

The numbe » week ago was 1.3 per cent of th population of the county. , At the commonly assumed pen Sion rate of J25 a month, this would mean $5100 monthly in the county or J61.200 a year.

The momentous stupidities of censorship are apparent, even to the change of the title from Born to Be Kissed (most women are, if history serves us right) to an really suggestive one, Implying, as it does, that inhabitants from Missouri have "to be shown." Our platinum heroine is about as miscast in the role of the virtuous, marriage-seeking, small-town waitress as we would be directing a flight to the South Pole. Again we see the efforts of these meddlesome censors; you can almost hear the director whispering in Jean's ear, "Put that purity stuff over big, kid; you're on the spot, you know." And Jean puts it on with a dipper. For the most part they bundle Miss Harlow up to the neck in clothes at the very time they are giving as disgusting a scene as we have seen in the movies in a long time—the one wherein various, middle-aged men run around in only their shorts, displaying not beautiful, athletic bodies but flabby, over-hanging paunches. If this is the price of the League of Decency in Motion Pictures, the death knell is sounding for Art in the talkies. After all personalities like Jean Harlow exist in this world, and we might as well try to change the course of the stars or the path of the sun as regulate their orbits; beautiful butterfly creatures who flit about among us, then suddenly singe their wings and fall into the Local Bid Lands School Contracts The Pratt Electric Co. has secured contracts for electrical in- MISSOURI stallations in a new Renwick schoolhouse addition and a new Cylinder schoolhouse.
