IIULSE'S IN THE REGISTER On this page appears a reprint of a communication on the Sunday Register's Open Forum page in •which the Rev. c. V. Hulse de•''fends the state sales tax. In his first paragraph, and again with many customers, a 20 per cent guaranty would be likely to cover losses; but rural banks know that they would not have the volume to make the laws of average work and that consequently a single loss might eat up the whole guaranty, leaving none for the other loans. If this act is to work in rural communities it will have to be amended to enlarge the guaranty for rural lending agencies In order to make up for the difference in volume of loans; and even then, short of full coverage, it will not work so long as the banks continue to require 100 per cent security on every loan and eligible borrowers remain fearful of going into debt. 33« MORI; .TOIJHOT-HERS SADDLED OX TAXI'AVERS.

Let him note the shoddy, -tadly worn coat of many a poor •farmer's wife who must shiver all the way to town and back, and let contrast it with the new, warm, expensive coat of many a town woman. We leave it to Mr. Hulse, a follower of the compassionate Christ, "to say whether the woman in the •cheap coat who has evidently had •to pinch pennies to buy any covering at all ought to pay a tax, much Jess the same tax in proportion '/that her rich and well to do sister .pays. This cannot be the taxation •of the gentle Jesus who advised a certain rich man to sell all he had •and give to the poor. On the contrary it is the taxation of Mammon "Which favors the rich at the expense of the poor. The other point in Mr. Hulse's communication to which exception must be taken is the assumption in the last paragraph that none but 'the title holders of property pay property taxes. This is a common assumption, but again it is KUT- •prising that a thinker like Mr. Hulse should let himself be misled by it. Everybody except traraps lives in «. house and makes use of other .improvements on land. People who ^flo not live in their own homes use •*he property of others and pay Tent, and in the rent they pay the taxes on every improvement on the land down to the last stick. It is only on the bare land itself that 4he owner really pays the taxes — tlie small end as a rule. This is a well known economic ^principle. What fools people who «k> not dig below the surface of things is the fact that tenants do not get credit on the tax books. Everything is taxed in the name of the owner and superficial observers therefore give him all the credit. Some of the current mud- Jdied thinking on the incidence of the general sales tax would have to be revised if allowance for this fact 'were made. -.006 ::oo?2i ncw deal ..0006 Hulse anr. SPERRKCK'S DEFENSE OF THE HOUSING ACT Editor Ray S. Sperbeck, of the Swea City Herald, is ordinarily one of the soundest editorial writers in Iowa, but the socialistic leanings to which he charmingly confesses seem occasionally to get the best of his logic. It is an amiable penchant of socialists to view visionary schemes with an Utopian eye. and NRA than anything else in the new deal. In view of the present confusion in NRA it is worth recalling that it is due to the leadership of Senator Patterson that NRA is not applicable to intrastate business in Iowa. Kossuth county was proud to welcome Secretary Wallace Saturday. No matter how individuals may disagree on the government's agricultural program, all can and do unite in belief in Mr. Wallace's honesty of purpose and devotion to the cause of the farmers. Some contrary signs notwithstanding, the general political trend seems still away from the republicans. At least this appears to be the situation in Kossuth county. Whether the hard luck of farmers in less favored sections has made them of a different mind is a question which may not be settled till election day. story in last week's Advance reported that it had 1 been stolen and used in the Line 0' Type or Two over the nom de plume of "Savanna Si."

THE CHAP WHO is a pain in the neck to every mcttorist probably wolfs his food like a hog.—H. S. M. in Monday's Over j.he Coffee. Let the colyumist, if any, who has never mixed metaphors cast the first stone. Opinions of Editors Applying Sense to Facts. Milford Mail—We all know, if we know anything at all, that the high farm prices today are due to the worldwide drought, which has cut down the supply and increased the demand. Nobody knows what would have happened if there had been no drought and resulting crop shortage. Aint It the Truth? Altoona Terald—Yes, it continues to he a great old world. The fellows who were blaming Hoover, during his time, for the depression, bad weather, etc., are howling their heads off now because some are criticizing and blaming the same thing onto Roosevelt. Question of the Day. Knoxville Journal—That old bromide of distinguishing between property rights and human rights is up for discussion again. We have always been curious to know what human right is more important than the right to own and hold property. The Poor and the Sales Tax. Sheldon Sun—The burden of the sales tax falls on the poor man. He pays 2 per cent on living expenses, when he can barely provide the necessities of life. The wealthy pay the same 2 per cent, but to them it is not a burdensome tax. Every dol- had by casting a lot of "has-beens' in the title roles. There are Polly Moran and Mary Boland—have you ever heard of anyone who likes these wise-cracking females? That is, anyone in this day and age of so called enlightenment? Ned Sparks, of course, is always amusing, in his caustic, hard-boiled manner. But he almost meets his Waterloo in Yachts. And a more colorless hero than Sidney Blackmer could hardly be conceived. Which leaves only dark-eyed Sidney Fox to shoulder responsibility for this musical atrocity; and poor little Sidney just ain't the gal who Ccin do it. There are several catchy musical numbers, chief among them Funny has set out on its meritorious mission of making the world safe for the dear children, we may well attack such pictures as Treasure Island from an adolescent viewpoint. We'll wager our best (last year's) hat against a pop-gun that there isn't a virile, red-blooded youngster alive who could get a good night's sleep after seeing Treasure Island. Of all the curdling, hair-raising, nerve-racking, swash - buckling tales to which the cinema could lend a realistic touch of actuality, this could hardly be surpassed. Records of reactions on children of gangster pictures have been taken which show the effects of exciting cinemas on adolescent minds; but in comparison with a 1933 gangster show, Treasure Island is the Niagara of all hair-raisers. No, fond parents, Treasure Island is your picture, not Willie's or Mary's. From a moral standpoint (we are speaking again for the children) a more complete debacle of all the Christian virtues could scarcely be imagined. Murder, lying, deception of every conceivable kind are given the broadest credence; and to make matters worse, to give the thing its crowning "black-ball," the villain gets away with it! After a whole life of knavery, after countless murders, thefts, petty deceptions, Hombre Beery finally knocks a tottering old man in the FAMED TRIBUTE TO GRASS [From the Traer Star-Cllpper.J World and South Sea Bolero; but head with a shlpmast , steals part of the depression seems to have hit j t he treasure, and amid salty tears and_ the j from litt i e Jacklo cooper rows off . nttle boat, apparently to en- the staging of censors have cut into the second— which again leaves the production pretty much of a negative quality. Excuse us if we work ourselves up into a mild hysteria about this censorship battle. The stupidities of the League of Decency are every day growing more blatant.

Yet the This was one of; the late George dance routines in the South Sea Is- H. Free's traveling, poems. A news i lan(J number have been literally cut to shreds by watchful Bluenoses. Well, there isn't must more to say about this picture, except that it is positively a premiere showing, and safe for dear little children. That is, they dressed the hula girls up to the neck and removed all objectionable wiggles; leaving, however, other features which we think are a thousand times more vulgar. WITH ALL THE HOSANNAS of ' ' praise which Treasure Island has raised among critics (even the vituperative Chicago Tribune "lay- ed off" the New Deal long enough to give It an editorial cream-puff), .it is not surprising that an acrid "wet-blanket" should not join the anvil chorus of commendation. The fact that WON praises the picture joy his ill-gotten gains. If this is the League's supreme effort for our children, then you will pardon us if we repair to the empty lot behind the barn and indulge in a hearty and resounding guffaw. It is to laugh! As adult entertainment, Treasure Island is both clean and well done. With a capable cast and splendid direction and photography, Robert Louis Stevenson's thriller has been transferred to the silver screen in an almost faultless manner. Lionel Barrymore sets the breath-taking blood-curdling pace tales early with of pirates; Wallace Beery takes up the refrain in his raucous way; and the adventuresome Jackie serves as innocent victim. The Beery-Cooper combination seems as effective in this romantic fairy tale as it was in those realistic modern dramas, The Bowery and The Kid. Perhaps it is the contrast between this Diamond-in:he Rough Beery (with his heart of gold) and the trusting, credulous youth (Cooper) which holds audience appeal. Whatever it is, it never fails to melt the hearts of sven the most caustic critics. So Treasure Island will go down is alone almost reason for finding!as one of the screen triumphs of fault; but our criticism is directed 1934, notwithstanding the fact that not so much against the cinema as|it is not a child's picture, against the mistaken popular notion that it is a children's picture. well, we haven't noticed And— many IN BIG BOLD HEADLINES the Sumner Gazette says: "Fremont Township Farmejrs in Fayette County Have Worms."

Dewel, that very capable editor of an excellent weekly, the Algona Advance, runs a "column." He carries above it this suggestion: "Let's not be too d—d serious." Agreeing with the Algona sage, let's go on and suggest that we do not be too participled critical and severe as to others. Let's quote and heed Goethe, who advises: "To grow tolerant you have only to grow old. I have seen no sin committed which I might not have committed too." Or' that conclusion of John Bunyan as he watched a man marched off to jail: "But for the mercy of God there goes John Bunyan." Youth is prone to intolerance. Which is an evidence of unripe- ness. Youth is forever seeking the new and different. Youth makes mistakes. Youth also discovers much that age had missed. Valuable discoveries out of which new and better standards grow. And doing so grows old and looking backward analytically and regretfully on its own mistakes and blunders and sins grows tolerant with age, as did Goethe and Bunyan, to realize the sins they might and possibly had committed, and think, as did Bunyan and Goethe: "But for the mercy of God," or by reason of accident, "there might go I." Let's not be too such-and-such critical. Let's quote from Joaquin Miller's poem on Burns. Like this: "In men whom men condemn as ill I find so much of goodness still; In men whom men pronounce divine I find so much of sin and blot I hesitate to draw a line Between the two." Let's try to believe in each oth- er. In our nation, our state, our city, our associates, our families. In the future of our children and our neighbors' children. Let's be tolerant while holding fast to the basic foundations of the home and the city and the nation. Old gray Walt Whitman dreamed a dream: "I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth. I dreamed that it was the new City of Friends. It was seen every hour in the actions of the men of that city, In all their actions and words." Let's be fair one with another, and all with all. Let's be tolerant. Not too critical. Remembering with Goethe and Bunyan, what sins we might have committed, what sins we did commit, and that except for the mercy of God "there went we." Note by Advance Editor—Having conferred by means of hasty notes —the means whereby editors who sometimes fight in public maintain amicable fraternal relations in private—W. Earl Hall and the writer are unable to determine whether the venerable and well beloved F. A. M. was administering a spanking or merely happened on the Col- yum slogan when he was in need of a text and seized the opportunity for a bit of the philosophy for which he is famed. In the former event the writer admits need of the castigation. Lying in the sunshine among the buttercups and dandelions of May, scarcely higher in Intelligence than the minute inhabitants of that mimic wilderness, our earliest recollections are of grass; and when the fitful fever in ended and the foolish wrangle in the market and the forum is closed, grass heals over the scar our descent into the bosom of the earth has made, and the carpet of the infant becomes the blanket of the dead. Grass ia the forgiveness of nature—her constant benediction, Fields trampled with battle, saturated with blood, torn with the ruts of cannon, grow green again with grass and carnage is forgotten. Streets abandoned by traffic become grass-grown like rural lanes and are immortal. Beleagured by the sullen hosts of winter, it withdraws into tho impregnable fortress of its subterranean vitality and emerges on the first solicitation of spring. Sown by the winds, by the wandering birds, propagated by the subtle agriculture of the elements, which are its ministers and servants, it softens the rude outline of the world. It bears no blazonry of bloom to charm tho senses with fragrance or splendor, but its homely hue is more enchanting than the lily or the rose. It yields no fruit in earth or air, and yet, should its harvest fail for a single i year, famine would depopulate th world. —John J. Ingalls Editor's Note: T. C. Sherman that genial man from Algona, la who was examiner in charge o the closed Trear State bank sev eral months until stricken by ill ness, and who made a lot of gooc friends here despite the nature o his job (collecting debts does no enhance the popularity of the or dinary fellow), was a lover of gooc literature. "Graas" is a contribu lion of Mr. Sherman to this depart ment, and he adds tho following in teresting comment of his own: "One beautiful day in June good many years ago, a crowd ~ kindred spirits were gathered in tho historic Judith club at Lewis town, Mont.

Murray was bringing a load of players and others home last week Wednesday from Rockwell City, where two Bancroft baseball teams played ball that day, his Ford V-8 and a Ford driven by W. L. Reynolds, Omaha, collided at a point three miles north of Fort Dodge. Mr. Reynolds traveling for the Hunter Iron Works, Omaha, swerved to miss a boy on a bicycle and drove right into the path of the Murray car. Charles Baker, Mildred Deitering, J. H. Menke, his son Gerald, Glen Cage, and Donald Godfredson, riding with Mr. Murray, were all hurt and taken to Mercy hospital, Fort Dodge. Mr. Baker was unconscious five hours and remained at the hospi- :al till last Thursday noon. He suffered a bruised knee and forehead, and a piece of flesh was cut off his nose. Miss Deitering suffered three deep cuts on her forehead, Mr Murray suffered a badly bruised left arm and forehead, and the others suffered minor injuries Both cars were badly damaged. Mr. Reynolds carried no insurance. Mail Truck, Auto Figure in Crash The Emmetsburg to Britt star route mail International truck driven by J. w.
