He was the original advocate of the equalization fee legislation and did more to sell it to the country than any other man in public service. That was why he was elected chairman of the Farm Bloc.

The I illp ° me tax j term "re-oxploring" is used because the same ' l; » c ' m l»°>' men t taxation, principle was involved in the an ante-Roosevelt McNary-Haugen and other bills aimed .at agricultural relief. These bills were based on the theory that the farmer seldom derived any benefit on basic crops from agricultural tariffs. The crops exceeded domestic demand and the surplus had to be sold abroad. This meant that the products could bo sold for no more than the \vorld prices, and the world prices governed the domestic as well as the foreign market. The American farmer could not meet those prices and prosper. Under the subsidy plans the idea was that the surplus would all he sold abroad at whatever ,t would bring and the farmer would be compensated by the government for the difference between the world prices and the prices that would be paid in the domestic mar- KF.- t if the tariffs were effective. It was expected that if the surpluses all went abroad then tho domestic prices on what was left at home would rise to the tariff level, because like products from other countries could not be imported without paying the tariffs. One of the McNary-Haugen bills actually was adopted by both houses of congress but was vetoed by President Coolidge. The veto was probably a mistake, but before condemning it too severely ten years later allowance should be made for the fact that the subsidy idoa was then new and contrary to previous government practice.

Before fort to over-ride the president's leaving New Orleans I mapped out stops at veto. These votes are in the rec- iiitervals of 200 to 250 miles dally. I did not want to tire myself with long drives. The road from New Orleans to Mobile follows the Gulf coast, but not close enough for a view of the water except for short distances. For long stretches the land is swampy and uninteresting. The road is paved, and thore are bridges over some stretches of water. I passed Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, Gulfport, and Blloxl in the forenoon. I had intended to stop at Biloxi, a winter resort ord, though the partisan press ig- nores It can not be shown by the records that the senator ever voted against the interests of the farmers. Senator Dickinson places much stress on the fact that he is one of the strongest advocates of tariffs to shield the Interests of the farmers. He includes butter, corn, wheat, oats, and other product. His work was largely responsible for such legislation when he was in congress, and he believes that the lowering of these tariff rates is largely responsible for the do- luge of foreign farm products Into the United States. Senator Dickinson also voted for the creation of the Commodity Loan Corporation, under which the corn loans are made. This law was originally passed by the republican administration. Senator Dickinson also voted for the AAA, with the statement that the pro- THE MOVIES By T. H. C. THE BARRIER— Occasionally I welcome the opportunity to attend a motion plc- which J. W.

I did not stop at Mobile, but went on in the hope of finding a good tourist camp, and 14 miles beyond the city I came upon my heart's desire. The road had been following the up- por coast of Mobile Bay, and the camp was on high ground within a half mile from the me compelling argument for subsidies rather than thn present schemes for restriction of production would seem to be that they liould preserve foreign markets. Restriction to the limit.* of domestic demand means abandonment of foreign markets, and such abandonment results in thp upbuilding of competition abroad. This has been exemplified in the experiences of Rngland with rubber and Brazil with coffee. In each case an attempt at control at high prices was made, only to result in such growth of rubber production elsewhere in the one case and or coffee in the other that A Washington press dispatch a week ago said that Congressman Gilchrist had been singled out for special commendation by Marvin Jones (dem.), House; agricultural committee chairman, because of helpful service on the farm bill. Well andl good, but how many eighth district democrats will be tolerant enough next fall to give the only commendation that counts politically, towit, their votes? The House and Senate farm bills carried an amendment providing that cotton, wheat, corn tobacco, and rice laijids taken out of production could not be ufted for commercial livestock and dairy production, but in conference this provision was tampered with, and that was what the fight in the Senate was about last week. At this distance it rather looks as if the livestock and dairy farmers got a Haw Deal. Iowa was established as a separate territory in 1838, and th|s year marks the 100th anniversary. A committee of 100 on statewide observance has been named, also a committee of nine representing congressional districts. It was brand new and modern, but, best of all, it was located in the pines. I rented a fine room there and put up for the night. I have regretted ever since that I did not settle down in that camp for a really restful vacation. The ground was clean, the towering pines majestic and beautiful. Right in front of my door one of them rose to a height of 30 feet, straight as a ruler, with its tuft of greenery at the top. I dream, now of going back there to build a little cabin in which to spend the worst of our northern winters. This spot was the scene of a Civil war battle, when Union soldiers landed from the bay. Within a hundred feet of the cabin I occupied there is a ridge thrown up by the soldiers, with a trench on one side. Bullets and remains of weapons are still picked up in the neighborhood. All the way from Springfield, Mo., to the effects, the production has a qho- tographic splendor seldom seen in studio pictures from Hollywood. In fact, many of the scenes re- mindejl me strangely of the Glacier Park region, where the Chris- chilles family spent such a delightful vacation last summer. This Is. particularly true of the lake vistas, intimate little shots of peaceful, serene, placid bodies of water nestled amid great mountain peaks in the far northwestern Rockies. The story is hackneyed enough: the oldster with a "past" he is trying to forget; the beautiful maid, with a blood-taint suspicion; the noble, handsome officer of the law"; the villain; and a host of local characters—all mixed up in a story of fistic encounters, heroic rescues, and tender, passionate love ripening under a boundless expanse of azure skies and pine- covered ridges. But there Is something pure and virginal about such a picture, filmed in such a location of natural beauty. Leo Carrillo contributes his most effective role as half-breed frlend-of-all, a happy care-free wanderer of the wasteland. This Is a striking contrast to a part he took recently in Manhattan Merry- Go-Round, as flat and uninspired a show as The Barrier is effective.

The responsibility is the president's un-1 Secretary Roper's for they were, naive enough to suppose, that the type of citizen who writes to the president represents a dependable cross-section of anything. Granting numerous exceptions, such writers are, in general, what ia meant by the popular terms Dt "cranks" or "nuts." .At that it is doubtless true that the extremists who made the headlines did not represent the body of the conference. The majority wanted to justify the conference by dignified conduct. There were probably "isms" aplenty in this majority, but men can be slightly "cracked" and still conduct themselves , as .gentlemen. They had no chance in the open meetings, and again the fault lay with Mr. Roper and tie assistants. The secretary had made no arrangements for orderly conduct of the business from this camp Alabama I traveled among the southern pines. With their bright greenery, they add color to the landscape. They grow tall, straight, and thick, and for many, many miles the road is a swath cut through them. Per- lups I imagined it, but I thought that the air was pine-laden and that it is beneficial for people who suffer with respiratory troubles. Regretfully next morning I packed and took to the road again, headed for Montgomery. It was a beautiful ride, mostly through a romantic avenue of pines. On all of the homeward drive as far as Nashville I was impressed by the immense stretches of forest. I also found the country rugged and in some places resembling the Ozarks. This was a surprise to me, for somehow I had always had the impression that Alabama was a flat prairie country like ours. Probably this idea was ob- geographies of 50 Business Taxation.

Here I had a real adventure. For the only time on the trip I forgot to take the keys out of the car and lock tli3 doors. When I arose in the morning the car was gone. But not for long. The police were notified, and found it ^ithin two hours. It had been taken for a ride to town, and nothing was missing. Another beautiful day on the road took me through Birmingham and on to a town called rullman, where I spent the night in a hotel.

Shipwrecked on Tide He Thought Would Lead to Fortune [By George Gallarno Jn Plain Talk, De» MoinCH.] Citizens oft Iowa are still more or less interested in "what has become of" former United States Senator Brookhart. It was only a few years ago that Brookhart's name was on every political tongue in the state, with some naming him "only but to praise" and others with quite the contrary comments. Lately he seemed to have disappeared from public view and public curiosity almost entirely. But there are some Iowa editors who are not content to let the present quiet and peaceful conditions continue to exist. Editor Frank Jaqua, of the Humboldt Independent, is one of these restless "inquiring reporters," and last week he discussed the mysterious silence which has been wrapped about the once vocal and voluble Brookhart by saying: "One-time Senator Brookhart, more familiarly known In these parts as Smith Wildman, seems to have been washed ashore by the political tide that he once thought might carry him on to rich rewards.

James Ellison makes an attractive hero-officer, imbued with duty, and certainly a young man of impeachable moral standards. His feelings towards the young woman of his dreams reach a new level in what ' may be- termed "moral heights" when he hesitates to spend the night beside her wrapped in his blankets and under the starry heavens. Andy Clyde and others give excellent native characterizations. And we must not forget Robert Barrat, who, I believe, also contributes his most outstanding characterization as the man with a past. As is so often the case in pictures of this kind, whose strong plot overcomes deficiencies in acting, there are moments of really supreme art by those who realize that they are capable of better roles but unconsciously put everything they possess into lesser parts. Two long speeches, seldom risked by directors of "super-pictures," because they usually slow up the pace of the production, are noteworthy, one by Leo Carrillo, when he rehearses a proposal to the girl's father, such as the girl companied a suitable by announcement appointment for that him publics are very fickle. Fame is fleeting and the man in public life who is wise will spare himself many heartaches and and husks of disappointment if he quits while the quitting is- good. Life is like that. The Astonishing Fact "One of the astonishing things about Smith Wildman Brookhart is that he ever received attention In Iowa., He never did have the ability to deserve it.

The best opinion is that he does not have the following in Iowa he once had and that the great percentage of Iowa voters, large numbers of whom are new voters know little about Brookhart. The case of former Senator Brookhart is just one of the tragic things about our politics. There comes a time in the life of every public man when he reaches the end of the trail.
