SO — The Question Is—Who's to Be the Goat? Newspaper headlines Saturday said sacrifices would have to be madb if war was averted in Europe. British diplomats were given as authority for the statement. It's a good guess that the sacrificing will not liave to be done by England. And the Czecks are not anxious to be the goat of European diplomacy given in sacrifice to the war sod Hitler. The Czecks say .if they're going to die, they'll do their dying with tlieir boots on and fall face to the enemy. Of course in this country we hope Great Britain will stick out its neck and give the Hitlerites a drubbing. Prance is somewhat in the same predicament, and Russia is probably enjoying the discomfort of the capitalistic na- doing you a real favor by letting you in on (hat bargain. But if your scrip dollar was brand new and shiny how much would this smart fellow allow you on it? He wouldn't even talk to you. If he accepted it he would have to buy $1.04 worth of stamps for the privilege of paying you $1 in cash. He would be out the dollar ho save you plus $1.04—he thus would lose $2.04 on the deal. He wouldn't even need to he half-smart to tell you where to go with a proposition like that. So here you are. You have $30 In scrip. Your merchant won't take it. You bank won't take it. Nobody else will take it. By Thursday night >ou will have to buy 60 cents worth of stamps to keep something good that won't be tmy good afterwards anyway. Your common sense would by this time be telling you a few tilings about a goof who would take such n liability. Timely Topics That two-per cent "voluntary" contribution to the democratic campaign fund among state workers in a certain department, reported last week-end in the Register smells. Wonder wh it the democrats would have said about such business in the republican era? The democratic state government has yet to deny that there are three times as many em- ployes on the state's payrolls now a's there were when Turner was governor. Wonder what has happened, to the bill for HODGEPODGE Webster—A stew of various Ingredients; a mixture. THIS WOULD be an ideal time to start plans for that new hotel, and it is rumored a number of the local citizens with money lying around idle, are worried enough about the market situation to loosen up on stock purchases. Algona is a good enough town, far enough from towns having good hotel facilities to be entitled to the best. The addition to the present hotel, touted for some years, has evidently fallen through. LEAVES 03T THE MAPLE trees are beginning to change color. Here it is the 21st day in September. The year is nearly three-quarters spent, and It's less than -TOO days, till Christmas.

That consideration would who loudly praise such schemes h . ave been left to the kindness and mercy of the average doctor. Doctors as individuals ruv kind and charitable, but the A. M. A. as an organization has been too dictatorial in re<*i- menting the profession. The Downey plan is based on scrip, on each dollar of which a two-cent tax stamp must be affixed each Thursday. It sounds all right on its face. It sounds like people would spend the money quickly to escape the tax stamp payment. Advocates say it will circulate rapidly. But, will it? If you were a merchant in California and the scheme were adopted would you accept the scrip at face value? Maybe you would at first. But as you learned wisdom you would-, n't take it. Why?

Then you would order more, but when the time came for payment to the wholesaler, jobber, or manufacturer, you found that he wanted his payment in cash — not strip. This would not be because the wholesaler disliked scrip, but because the wholeealer is dealing with firms outside of California to whom the scrip is valueless because it would not circulate (and his supply sources in turn demand cash which will circulate all over the country.) Then you, as a merchant, would wake up and demand cash from your customers. If they protested, as they would, you would te'.l tiiem you had to pay for merchandise with cash, and the only scrip you could use would be enough to pay your taxes. You might bo able to pay your employes half in scrip—providing they would take it, but that would cover only a minor part of your business expense. You and every other merchant would therefore refuse scrip and demand cash. If you were a person over 55 and received the $30 in scrip every Thursday what would you do with it? You couldn't take it to a bank, because the bank couldn't accept it. Why? Simply because you and everybody else would demand cash from the bank, and not accept scrip. If the bank accepted scrip and gave you cash, what would happen to the bank each Thursday? The bank would be stuck for two cents on each dollar's worth of scrip it held. If it held $100,000 worth that would be $2,000 in cash, etc. The scrip, instead of being valuable to the bank would become a liability each Thursday.

Nashua Reporter: When the average man gets a government check he visualizes it as a gift from Uncle Sam and doesn't stop to consider that it is borrowed money and that he or his children will have to help pay it back. War Definitely Xot Wanted. Decorah Public Opinion—The people of this country would approve cessation of diplomatic and business relations with any aggressor nation, but there is no desire in the United States to go farther than that. The dire consequences to us of our participation in the World war are too fresh in the minds of all. When the Well Goes Dry. Marshalltown Times-Republican — The inevitable is happening. Secretary Morgenthau is faced with the necessity of borrowing more than a billion dollars to meet current government expenses and to take care of obligations soon to fall due.

Humboldt Republican—It is hard to reconcile President Roosevelt's repeated declaration that.he has no desire to be a dictator with his you couldn't get rid of it to mechant, your banker, or anyone else who was half smart. You would have to hold It, and you would be stuck two cents on each dollar's worth each Thursday. If you found others who would accept it you would find that they would figure how long they might have to hold it, aud discount it. Supposing the scrip dollar you held had 50 cents tax stamps affixed to it. How much would it be worth to you? You would have to attach 54 cents worth of stamps in additiou'to the 50 cents worth to make it redeemable by the state at the end of the year. In other words, to get back that 50 cents someone spent for stamps you would have to spend 54 cents. If you wanted to spend it with a fellow who was smart, he might allow you 46 cents top the scrip dollar even though it had 50 cents in stamps attached. Why? -Because $1 less the 5* cents he would have to pay to make that dollar good equals 46 cents, and he would be than that, it will show the American people that the man really does want to dictate the policies of the nation. No number of denials will ease the public mind. Too Many Paroles Given?

But that fourth grade business is a 'start. Soon it'll be the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and then high school! And there's another readying to follow the footsteps of the first! ***.** HOW TRUE THAT SLOGAK-Tlme Marches On. But there is still plenty of life left, and uygolly the long white whiskers are still a dark stubble on those days when laziness passes over the shave till another day.

There's a wistful wish to see the man. Anybody who could bite off a cafe tail and come cut with a nose, eyes, and lips, to say nothing of hearing altogether instead of being torn to shreds, after such a bput would be worth seeing. * ***** AT HAMPTON IS a man who sent $1900 to a radio chapel pastor, at Mason City. Action has been started to provide a guardianship for the man, who it is alleged, is a religious fanatic as a result of listening to the programs.

CAttEFRKE— There has always been some doubt in my mind as to Astalre'and Rogers's best picture, but there Isn't a shadow of doubt as to their worst—it's Carefree, their current picture shown at the Call Sunday and Monday. Not that there aren't moments of real class in Carefree —but they are few and far between—and the story Is so ridiculously weak that the clever footwork of the two stars is almost lost in the shuffle. This is the danger In starring two people in a series of pictures. There must always come a lame duck. And Carefree scarcely wobbles at times. Ginger and Fred dance divinely together, the former seeming to have become perfectly matched with her Illustrious partner. But oh! that plot — even a high school senior could concoct something more reasonable or palatable. Fred dances one extremely clever solo number using golf sticks and balls for stooges and it is easily the high light of the show. Ginger wears the most gosh-awful dresses it has ever been the misfortune of a ready-to-wear man to see. There is no excuse for selecting such an atrocious wardrobe for so charming a femme. After all, clothes should enhance the beauty of the feminine form divine —when it positively insults it, it's time to make a change in the wardrobe designer. The music of Carefree is from the talented pen of Irving Berlin and while it Is tuneful and melodious it lacks the inspiration of an Alexander's Ragtime Band. This is a curious thing—that in the whole picture there is not one really "whistlable" tune. Hardly a musical production but that has at least one hit melody. Carefree starts out weakly and ends even feebler—establishing the fact that it takes more than two stars and u setting to produce a motion picture.

AT SPENCEK A MAN spoke against a proposed WPA project. Advocates had pointed out that 45 per cent of the sum aeked would be given by the government and it would be a .iimme to pas s it up. The opponent said why not let the 45 per cent go rather than spend 55 per cent to get 45. (And that 55 per cent comes right where it hurts.) If the project is necessary there's some merit to the WPA. Otherwise not. But that Spencer man was on the right track for many, many projects.

There was something strangely unreal about this story of the salmon Industry In Alaska — unreal because as a rule pictures of this type keep me on the edge of the seat In breathless anticipation. This super-colossal spectacle wasn't In a class with Spell of the Yukon which I saw on a double bill a few weeks ago. It's a funny thing how some of these supposedly "groat" pictures go haywire— the bigger the cast, the greater the sweep, the more lost in detail the director becomes. Some of .the best acting in I Spawn of the North is contributed i by the trained seal who really has a etar-part and gpes through his antics with a zest and enthusiasm which puts many of the human actors to shame. Henry Fonda is hopelessly cast as the man who finally conquers the wily old Russian fish-pirate (Aklm Tamtrpff), although'George Raft Is more true to type. •Glamorous Dorothy Lamour discards her sarong for a tight-fitting sweater with about the same net results; the gal Tins n fetching figure and despite her constant protestations seems not averse to dis- nlaying it in the most alluring dress. I was most disappointed In the outdoor shots of the great northwest. There are some spectacular iceberg shots, but I fancy that much much of this footage is cleverly faked, and again, the Yukon picture is infinitely richer in natural scenery. The fight between Raft and the government men is inexcusably bloody. There is no necessity for presenting tragic death in such a gory fashion—spears penetrating abdomens or hatchets splitting skulls—these are details which add nothing to the enjoyment of a picture nor enhance the artistic quality of the film. Yes, I was disappointed in Spawn of the North because as a rule I enjoy pictures of this type.

Much as we admire Senator Gillette, the above statement made at the dedication services for the new post office here, is completely false, and Gillette knows it. The government is not "giving us" anything. We are taxpayers just as much as any other citizens of the United States, and any money that was paid for the building of the postoffice here, came from the money we as taxpayers have paid the government. The government did not give us anything. We paid our own way. And another thing, Mr. Gillette: we do not "belong" to any govern- ment — the government belongs to us. It will take more than two democratic victories at the polls to change that. You must remember, Mr. . Gillette, that you represent the people of Iowa in helping to run the federal government — our government — you do not represent the federal government In telling us what to do and how gracious the government is in spending our money to build us a new postoffice. The people of Iowa like you, Mr. Gillette, and will continue to like you unless you throw in with the gang that s o recently tried to chop off your political head and adopt their attitude, viz., that we, the common people, are chattels of the government, or preach on the munificence of the federal government in giving us a postoffice.

According to the Advance the general fund at Algona amounted to $5,100. On that basis the taxpayers of the tpwn paid one dollar of every five in their general fund to find out whether their officials had stolen anything or made any mistakes. Other reports of a similar tenor are coming in 'from towns and cities as well as from other taxing districts over the state. The Herald is told that checkers in a Northwest Kossuth school district last year put in a bill for $180 for a few days' work. Taxpayers later compared notes among themselves, and since then have spread the story abroad, •It appears the burden for this condition rests largely in the office of State Auditor Storms at Des Moines. These checkers aie appointees of hi^ office. The politically-wise ere saying the existing state administration, trying to find as many .places for job-holders as possible, has used the auditor's office liberally. Given carte blanche, these'checkers are grabbing off all they can while the grabbing is good. Plainly graft and incompetence are rife. An-unconsciounable horde of thieves, scoundrels, and nincompoops has* fastened itself upon us. Maybe the people of Iowa eventually will become aroused and maybe they will not.
