B. Hutchina, of Algona, some 25 years ago. He discussed It in newspaper articles, and, it ia believed introduced a bill to correct the discrimination hut nothing was ever done. In the natural course of the westward movement of the pioneers of last century southeastern Iowa was settled first.

Modern theaters are blazing palaces of light and garish decoration. They stimulate gone now forever, but shining ever brightly in fondest memories. THE PERFECT SPECIMEN— This picture is based on . the somewhat fantastic premise that it is possible to imprison a young man in a palatial domicile till he has reached maturity and thus keep him unsullied by the so-called vices of the world. Errol Flynn Is the young man, and Beverly Rob., , - ------- -- . tm* JUUIIE, luiiu, uuu AJliYUl Ijr J.VJU- ™ r ^ QU j ed nervcs - erts is to be his bride.

When I bake it for church food sales it is usually sold before I deliver it. Rather a nice letter, and from a woman of evident refinement, too, don't you think? Yet that term "salt-rising" must be legitimately damyank, for Grandma Deuel was a Vermonter born and bred. But why "salt-rising"? That's always been a puzzler. And now, while the Red Oak loaf Is awaited, another thing, something that in the 50-odd /«:ars since boyhood had been utterly forgot-en, that even now memory refuses to recall — the odor; Fearing that the bakers were at fault, the Colyum t out of courtesy, hadn't intended to mention that, but since it was present in every oaf, suspicion was awakened that it is char- cteristic; and now confirmation comes in his comment from Editor Coleman, of the Lu "erne Xews — Speaking of that salt-rising bread Mr )cwel, someone wanted to know how long it <• to evenings that dizzy days had almost wrecked. In its restful confines we paused a moment in the headlong rush to complete mental and physical standstill. So at this season of the year the lure was irresistible, the spell poignant. Pictures and other entertainment always seemed more completely satisfying. Even a poor he is missing something. Thu something turns up in the persor of Joan Blondell, and once, the twc meet 25 years of environment are dashed to pieces. May Robson is the hard-boilec old aunt who is engineering an im practical scheme, and Edward Ev erett Horton is her able (?) secretary. When Miss Blondell crashes would be good for the human ra< c Dut Society, that stern discipliner- ian, keeps us well in hand. So we can sympathize with young Errol In his plight. And wo may also enjoy with him his ca- cape into the real world—a plcn c, racing a car at full speed dovn country roads, romance, excitement, adventure! Thus we may concede that The Perfect Specimen Is a 'picture of universal appeal, and, as such, oijio of the enjoyable moments of the movies. I hope you found it so. But I still don't like Errol, though Joan Blondell contributes one if her best performances. IT'S LOVE I'M AFTEK— This fantastic bit of movie hi kum continues the current VORI 'or marital warfare by introducirg us to a cast of serious- actors ard actresses suddenly gone ga-gi.

The editors wr.-re asked to answer questions, all relative to the U. S. i-rj-jrt, namely: four UhMhor President Roosevelt should bo permitted 10 appoint "nurse" justices; whether a two-thirds vote of tho court should be required for invalidation of a law passed by lating on whether Governor Kraschel will oppose Senator Gillette in the democratic primaries next June.

The. questionnaire was mailed to 12,585 country papers, and some 2,300 editors replied. The percentage of replies was a little more than 18. 'I'bi.s us not a disappointing figure. Full eover- t;;;c is never expected in .such cases. Too many men, occupied with their own affairs, toss questionnaires into the nearest wastebasket. A percentage of replies around 20 is considered satisfactory as a cross-section indicating what full coverage would be. The Industrial News Review has now released the following summary of the replies: Proposed legislation that would permit the president to appoint additional justices, was opposed by S0.4 per cent; 71.6 per cent were opposed to the proposal that a two-thirds vote of tho court be required to declare acts of congress unconstitutional; 72 per cent were opposed to any bill forcing justices to retire at an age fixed by law; and 88.8 per cent were opposed to a constitutional amendment limiting tho authority of the court over acts of congress. The following comment, with a modest tribute to country editors which generous-minded readers will excuse, was added hy the Industrial N&ws Review: There was remarkable consistency in the views of editors in far separated states, showing sentiment solidified against court changes, irrespective of sectional politics and feelings. The completed questionnaires, together with a multitude of supplemental notes and maturity the boy who was himself is as much a stranger as any boy in the street.

Opinions of Editors Let's Kill Some Chinese Kids. Winterset Madisonian—A black face editorial paragraph in the Waverly Independent reads, "Let's Kill a Few Chinese Kids. Buy Japanese-made goods for Christmas." The irony in the above is clear and carries a gooc point. Nations determined to oppress their weaker neighbors might be brought to their senses by means of a boycott. Wanted: Totegetter. Apply G. 0. P. Osceola Register—We hope the republican party will be able to find a leader within its ranks who will be far better qualified for this honor than either of the two men (Hoover, Landon) mentioned. Both are mighty good men, and both are qualified in many ways, but neither is qualified for going out and getting votes, and that is tho thing that is counted at election time. Everybody's After a Handout Mitchell County Press—The plain fact Is hat the economics of this country have degenerated into a scramble by all classes to get 'roni the government every advantage they can. No class recognizes this fact any clearer than the farmer does, and my guess is that the average farmer would be willing to throw the whole system of protection overboard and start fresh from scratch—If everybody else would. As it now goes it's a race among bus- ness, labor, and agriculture to see which, can ;et Its corner jacked up highest, and that will lead to a grand toppling sometime.

Step on the accelerator, and we'll get across before the train does." "They say these things can't possibly ex- piode, no matter how much you throw them around." "I guess the rope will hold my weight." 'It's no fun swimming around here. Let's eo beyond the life-lines." "These traffic cops can't stop me." "What a funny noise that snake makes I think I'll step on him." "That firecracker must have gone out I'll iight it again." "It smells like gas, but I guess it's all right Lend me a match." "I took some medicine in the dark, and I must have got hold of the wrong kind. AND THE GENERAL, being now a newspaper man himself, was merely defending his new profession, though what he was probably saying -about it three or four years ago is quite another matter and on no account should not he mentioned.—Windup of the editorial lead "heavy" two weeks ago. You ought to hear an editor's remarks when he finds one like that—too late! Such language! General Johnson himself couldn't do bolter. The girls across the "alley" were offered the treats if they'd find it. And denied if they tiidn't spot it right away! And son Donald, away off at Schenectady, N. Y., confident that he had at last found one hat Dad didn't already know about, hastened o offer congratulations. The Colyum. doesn't fancy alibis, but It may HI of interest to some readers to know how his one happened. The original word was 'every," but after the "heavy" had been writ- en it was seen that "no" would add a Dlck- ensesque flavor.
