Before the talk was made, word came along the grapevine that carries leaks from Supreme Court, called for the extermination of the Jews, and pledged themselves to establish a virtual Nazi dctatofship In this country. And what happened? Were the Bund members arrested as enemies of the government? No—instead, one of the largest concentrtaoins of police in New York's history surrounded the meeting place, and protected them while they aired their views, which would destroy the very freedom and protection they were enjoying! There isn't another country In the world where that could happen. For there isn't another country In the world where the cardinal tenet of democracy, free speech, Is so zealously protected. And free speech means the right to speak by those with whom you most violently disagree, as well as those with whom you agree. It even means the right to call for a change in government. It means giving the people every chance to hear all sides of a controversy and to weigh fact against fact and theory against theory before reaching a decision. When you hear someone denouncing America and its Institutions, remember this. Think of what happens 'to those bold enough to speak, even in moderate terms, against the regimes in power In Germany, Russia, Italy, and a host of smaller countries. Ours Is a freedom possessed by no other people. Why try to destroy it? HODGEPODGE Webster—A ate* of various IB- gradients! a mixture.

But they pay only one tax, not two as we in Iowa do. The state does not tax federal salaries, .-. . , ___ - . — *•" * "" WVM.I.B uv\yO AJLV/t, LO..A. J-CUtJl 0.1 Delicti lUSi official Washington, that it was to be definite-! and the federal government does not tax state ly encouraging to business, and was to pointi salaries; and that's what the present shooting to a new and stimulating administration pol- ' icy. But no one imagined it would be as encouraging as it was. Mr. Hopkins dwelt at length on the utility problem, and strongly urged a real government-utility peace that would permit this industry to expand on a big scale. He said that government should generally stay«out of business. He said that it was essential to recovery that the railroad problem be settled in a manner that would permit this industry to make and spend money. He lectured labor for permitting internecine warfare; said, in effect, that it was cutting its own throat, and that this country is plenty big enough for two major organizations to live together in peace and plenty. Going on, Mr. Hopkins observed that there could be no such thing as prosperity until the people on relief could get real jobs—and that could only be accomplished by invigorating private business. He said that industry and government could work together amicably without destroying the necessary and beneficial reforms executed by the present administration. And, perhaps most important of all, he intimated that the period of "experimental" legislation was about over—that today's job is to consolidate and make workable what has been done in the past. In brief, Mr. Hopkins made the most constructive talk the nation has heard in many years. The result was a chorus of plaudits from all over the country, and immediate strengthening of the security markets. Many a business man who was opposed to Mr. Hopkins' appointment to the Comnerce secretary- ship, in the belief that he was ruiical, drastically changed his point of view. It is a highly significant fact that a number of very import- in congress is about. The bill under consideration at Washington looks to taxation both ways, and most observers seem to think that is what ought to be done. On the last day of February Frank Jaqua completed his 46th year as publisher of the Humboldt Republican. Seventeen years before that he began work as "devil" in a printing shop. Now he is 69 or thereabouts (though he doesn't look it), and still publishing one of Iowa's best weeklies. What a fine record to look back upon! Every fellow weekly publisher in Iowa hopes heartily that he will realize an ambition to celebrate his golden anniversary. It seems to be now pretty well settled that there will be no third term for Mr. Rooevelt. One doesn't have to be anti-Roosevelt to hope that it will bo so. After all our tradition of two presidential terms and out is of first importance. The presidency has become too powerful to be entrusted to any one man for more than two terms. We must at all costs avoid any opportunity for dictatorship in America. The statewide uproar of last year about long and expensive local audits by state auditors has had a repercussion in the state senate. State Senator Gillette reports that the senate has passed a bill to permit school districts to employ either state auditors or certified public accountants. But why were towns and pities not included? Or are they in another bill? As Ernest Lindley, the D. M. Register's political commentator, points out, the democrats are talking of old men like Hull and Garner for president, while the republicans are talking of young men like Dewey and Taft. How strange if this country were to pick Dewey, a citizens of the county to be under the wire. Which calls to mind a child in school who was asked what, a census-taker did. The child replied "A census-taker is a man who goes from house to house increaaing the population." THEN THERE'S the Algona girl whose window shade was on the blink, and she prepared for bed without turning on the room light. But to her dismay she found she had forgotten the hall light was on, and she had to get that nightie across the open lighted space. She of a session with as many measures as now. There are about as many bills before the legislature now as are normally introduced in a full session. From now on only committees will be allowed to introduce bills, but there is apt to be a considerable number, including nearly 100 claims. Claim bills are measures the state is morally if not legally bound to pay. The law does not give individuals or companies the right to sue the state without its consent, thus made it, and looked out the window and saw a claims are presented, after investi- inan across the street.

What the legislature needs is a good old-fashioned party scrap that would put zest into it. It may be that the democrats realize that full-bodied resistance to the republican program is futile republican majority desires to achieve as legislation this session will be enacted, because of preponderance of votes. But though the steam roller is in gear for duty it so far has seen little use. Not all of the democrats have opposed republican organization plans. The truth is some of them have actively supported such measures, perhaps on the theory that an over-ambitious republican party record made in this assembly will eventually collapse from overload. IP YOU WANT TO make your legislator start dodging just ask him about the liquor bills (meaning the bills intended to become laws, not personal bills). Iowa would be foolish to adopt local option, for it would merely mean a continual uproar in every town and hamlet. It would be equally as foolish to adopt a liquor-by-the-drlnk plan. The present set-up is good, at least locally, where it is run as intended. committees. ***** AN ABSENT-MINDED Algonian walked into a tavern and ordered a can of beer to take bar - keep ^"^^ the Algonian, now deep in an ar- BUDGET DUE— The administration appropriation bill will make its appearance any day now. Meanwhile the legislature will tackle the task of clearing the congested calendars of pending measures and what are doled out by sparing sifting committees. There is much extra work ahead for the Senate, which must act on confirmation of a long list of appointments of Governor Wilson due to be sent up this week. STOPPING LEAKS— Senator Dewey, of Washington, believes the system of collecting the sales tax is losing the state two THE MOVIES By T. H. C. HUCKLEBERRY FINN— I thought they muffed Mark Twain's immortal story of the bad boy and darned if I can tell where the damage was done. The cast was carefully and artfully chosen, the direction seemed painstaking while the photography reached truly pictorial heights. But somewhere, during the slowly unfolding story, something slipped—a cog missed which threw the whole production Into what seemed to me to be a painfully dragged-out affair. Although I now live on the prairies, far from the Father of Waters, time was when I happy, carefree vacation spent days a and gument, a glass of beer. Still arguing the man ers. With Senator A. J.

There waa incidental mention of him in another newspaper the other day, but the Register has maintained silence ever since he disappeared from Mr. Ingham's and Mr. "Well, I guess I'm back in circulation." "What am I going to do about all this electricity in my slip? I feel I look like a corkscrew." "There are four nights a week I'd like to have dates, but I must stay in on Friday nights to rest up for the week-end." "Guess I'd better lock my door tonight so I can't get out and make a liar out of myself." "He's a divine dancer, but when he isn't on his toes he's just a heel." "Wish I could make Hodgepodge." (She did.) "Better not put me in that column or I'll—" (She's in.) WARM DAYS AND a bright sun last weekend made the 150 or so who play golf in the| county wonder Pocahontas, he has introduced a bill known as the prepaid Retail Transaction and Sales Tax Act. It Is estimated that $18,000,000 to to $20,000,000 is collected from the public annually in sales tax, but that only some $13,000,000 reaches the state treasury. The bill does not contemplate change in the amount of the sales tax, but would force retailers to buy rolls of coupons representing the tax. When a purchaser buys a commodity the retailer would tear off enough coupons for the tax as a receipt. The system is similar to that of Ohio. BUILDING BOOM— A bill to encourage home building has been introduced. The proposal would provide tax exemption down on the ole Mississippi river— when I fished along the banks of the majestic river or listened to the dull drone of dragon fly, as I angled for sunfish amid the lily pads in some inland lake. Somehow, through the years, I have kept that childhood dream alive, and my chief interest in such a picture as Huckleberry Finn is "atmosphere." There were shots of the river, of the old time packets which used to ply between St. Paul and St. Louis and there were other scenes grown-ups or for the children either—then, I ask you, what the heck is it? A DREAM OF LOYE— ./ One of the unforgettable gems of the cinema appeared unheralded and modestly in a short at the New Call last week under the romantic title of A Dream of Love, written and directed by one James A. Fltz- patriok and based on the life of Franz Listz, celebrated Hungarian composer. As delicate as a spring flower, as lovely as a sunset and as tender as a baby's embrace, this musical fantasy included scores of Listz's immortal melodies, coun- led with a cast of distinguished actors who gave to the somewhat sentimental little drama, a touch of reality. The recording and the photography, each characterized by a velvet softness, paced the two-reeler while the intelligent direction of Mr. Fritzpatrick carried the picture to a neat climax and an impressive finale. In my enthusiasm for A Dream of Love, I inadventantly mentioned the fact to Manager Kice, who ~ —.»j H.HM. vu vi *j ii m \j \j(,4ii;i O\s*Zl*\jQ il ,1 » * i along the muddy, willow covered (rathe , r . to °. k ?>? back by counter; banks, but somehow the produc- *?.f.

SENATE DID THIS— The Senate has voted to eliminate the party circle on the ballot and would group candidates under headings of office rather than party. This ballot would be sim- i Nebraska. The "** ° n ant industrialists are reported to be coming to Jaymacks private page. Also why are Mark • coming to Sullivan's letters becoming infreuent? And the view that Mr. Hopkins is today their best friend at court—and that they are confident he will do an A-l job in his important new post. So far so good. But there is one very large fly in the ointment—and that is the question as to whether s letters becoming infrequent? And do you think Lippman is as good as he was? Also, do you love or hate Kent? The state senate has passed a bill to abolish the party circle on the ballot. Good idea! ought to have to think before talk honestly does mark a volte-face in admin- in every case.

And in the past, the * w * ^™J 'L"^! ££*J^?? president s opinions have been known to vary Timely Topics with bewildering rapidity. On many occasions government officials have made encouraging speeches—only to have the good effects annulled by subsequent actions or statements that discouraged business. However, there are good reasons for arguing that the policy laid down by Mr. Hopkins may be put into effect. Administration leaders are worried about the swing to the right shown by the voters at the last election. Democratic ranks in House and Senate are split wide open, and such potent officials as Vice President Garner are openly working in the interest of conservatism. So thus it may be, some of the experts are saying, that Mr. Roosevelt is bowing to the inevitable, because,,, - - or brincine ah ' s a talks llke an executive who knows . .

Here's Nuisance Worth Ending. Webster City Freeman—The legislature has enacted a law "to authorize administrators of estates, subject to court order and notice the court prescribes to heirs, to mortgage as well as to sell personal property of estates." The legislature should have gone further, and lim- ted to a reasonable period when adminstra- tors must close estates.

Usually it is necessary to tie someone down and hold them till after they have been elected. ***** here ate will undoubtedly find opposition in the House, where a counter measure has been introduced to put the office under a non-partisan label on all ballots. In the House plan, the two candidates for the office receiving the highest number of votes in the primary election would go on the general election ballot as contenders under non-partisan heading.

In fact, this legislature has been sticking a prong into the commission's vital spot which is, of course, the primary road fund Heretofore that fund was regarded as sacred. Not so now. In the first place, some of the money is sure to be pried loose for the farm-to-market road fund which is about to be created in ' election, particularly on such a- 6 hort ballot- bin thai al^dy has "passed the ing, is a slap for the dictators, and lends a House and is pending in the Sen- note of encouraeemfiTit for tvm noana n t «,» ate. note of encouragement for the peace of the world. ***** THAT WAS A SMART congressman who offered the observation last week that if Germany's air armada is as great as it now appears then some of this country's diplomatic force in Germany should be fired.
