MA11CO 1'OLO— This Samuel Goldwyn super-col- losal-romantlc - spectacle of the 13th century demonstrates the pitfalls that lie in the path of any producer who attempts to combine ancient folklore with modern trappings. Here is pure romantic hokum, with a 13th century setting which is constantly getting mixed up with modern thought and modern action. Here we have the spectacle of George Barbier, a first-class ac tor, resorting to 20th century wise cracks to the detriment of a chai acter who is reputed to be th greatest monarch on earth. And Ernest Truex, sophisticate comedian supreme, playing th role of patient stooge to the grea Marco Polo, whose very manner o speech belies the fact that he be longs to a modern age. If this were a sly burlesque on ancient modes, the case would'be materially altered, but unless have lost my sense of humor, this is an honest eiffort to portray a romantic yarn which has survived t . he . years - in all its regal splendor And as such, per se, the result is a rather tragic failure. haps I AM a wee bit harsh and I ought to stick my old bald head In the nearest rain barrel.

The In case non-compliance becomes great enough to result in over-production and ruinously low prices, it may be necessary to ask for a corn marketing quota next fall, and if two-thirds of the corn .belt farmers vole for it the^non-complving farmers will be bound It is said that polls of farmer opinion show that the best farmers are opposed to the new Program; that only fairly successful farmers are divided 50/50; and that the least successful as would be expected, are overwhelmingly m favor. Owner-operators are mostly in the first class, but they are only a minorhv of the farmers who can vote on imposition of" a marketing quota. The Farm Bureau was the main influence behind the new act. Its strength has been greatest in the corn belt, but if the revolt against the program is successful the Farm Bureau will suffer in political prestige and in congressional lobby power. The anti-movement is also weakening the Wallace candidacy for president. Most farmers are reported to be tired of the complexities of the various farm acts. What they are interested in is not acreage control but better prices. This is leading to a demand in congress for an outright price-fixing act. Farm opposition is expected to be greater next fall than it is now, for bumper crops and the eastern depression are expected to result in lower crop prices. Referring again to Wallace, it is said that even his friends are now privately admitting tnat he is losing ground for the presidency. The depression has shown that his planned economy theories cannot be depended on to work out in practice. The foregoing review is not to be taken as either for or against the new farm act; it is merely a summary of what a responsible, nonpartisan authority says albout the situation. Farmers and the rest of the public are entitled to all such information they can get, regardless of the attitude towards the act.

Certainly the production was sumptuously mounted, with thousands of extras and sets which would have made Cecil DeMille blush with shame.

For a man who does as little acting as Bing, he somehow slips gracefully through his productions. 'Beatrice Lttlie, a darling of the British stage, comes through with some neat scenes after several rather unsuccessful, attempts in previous failures. She is almost as dead-pan an actress as Bing is an actor and her rather sophisticated comedy seems finally to have found a place in the American cinema. The Monday night Call audience greeted her nutty portrayals with loud belly laughs, which, I opine, is what Miss Lille's actions are supposed to provoke.

Gillette in the primaries. Wearin, to all appearances, over-estimates his own strength . . In the 1936 Roosevelt landslide, he had a close call for reelection in his own district There are 13 counties in the seventh district, and in his race for re-election Wearin made the grade by a scant majority of 1,564, a big falling off from the majority he ceived when first elected.

A Washington correspondent of the Christian Science Monitor, which is perhaps the most non-partisan newspaper in the country, as well as one of the best-edited, says many people are beginning to wonder whether it will ever be possible to beat an administration which .spends as much as the New Deal spends. "Never ibite the hand that feeds you," is an old adage. The number of people who In one way or another are ibeing "fed" by the New Deal is amazing. Prior to Roosevelt, there were some 1,700000 families dependent on the government, some as just federal employes, some in the army and the navy, some as 'pensioners. It is estimated that only some 100,000 let their jobs uliuo influence their votes. Of course such as lived [irTthe in the District of Columbia could not vote. Today some seven millions out of the 32,000,000 families in the United States get their living from the government. Figuring only three to the family, that means 21,000,000 people. They are employed on various government programs, and they include some 800,000 federal employes. Two hundred thousand or 'more—some put it as high as 300,000—were added to the government payroll since 1932 despite Mr. Roosevelt's repeated promises in the campaign that he would drastically cut down the number of payrollers. The foregoing figures take no account of the 4,000,000 farmers who now get government checks, or of the 800,000 persons who have already begun to draw social security pensions. Nor is any account taken of the beneficiaries of cheap government credit, or of many others coddled by government, nor, last but far from he is getting the worth oThuT Wney" The Progress of the Years. phic—In November, 1932 a .... flve ve ars ago, there were a minion people unemployed in the i our national This present bave This Looks Like Good Sense.

The presi dent has given assurance that i wi'II be a "hands off" policy of the administration in any primarj fight which may develop in Iowa [Harlan News-Advertiser.] Wearin's withdrawal from congressional race was not uuc solely to his consuming ambition, in politics. 'It is due laregly to the general belief that Wearin believed himself washed up with the seventh district voters, but perhaps has a chance at the senate nomination in convention. Surveys have been made of the district, and it appeared that Wearin's steadily decreasing support would more than be wiped out thjs year. Already four democrats seek the nomination to the office which he relinquishes. Paul Mallon's column gives a different slant upon Wearin's future plans. Mallon states that Wearin and Secretary of Agriculture Wallace are in an unannounced plan to put Henry Into the White House and Wearin into the senate.
