Every good town had one in the eighties. There is even one left now at Garner, but to most tourists who drive past it it is a curiosity. In the nineties there was a brick and tile factory on the river bank at the north edge of town. Up town there was a dray wortas which turned out as fine drays and wagons as could be got anywhere. For many years the butter- tub factory furnished employment for scores of workers. For a time there was a factory here which made small gasoline engines. The livery barns, the blacksmithing shops, and the harness shops were once busy places; The barns are gone, the harness shops are all but extinct, and the blacksmith's forge is not what it was in its hey day. Time marches on! Economic law keeps pace and changes the business map. Now our cigar factory has yielded to pressure. What will be next? The bakeries? The Nora Springs Advertiser reports a bread war. Bread prices are down two cente a loaf from a few weeks ago. The Advertiser says: The price war is apparently a move on the part of the large baking corporations over the state to force the small town independent baker out of business by putting the price of his heaviest commodity at a level on which he cannot hold his own financially. The ultimate end, of course, is to use the tremendous financial backing behind the companies to wear down the little fellow, The Advertiser offers the usual plea to readers—support the local baker by buying his bread. Maybe people will respond for a few weeks. Then they will forget and buy out of town bread. It is not that they think the local product is inferior or that they have anything against the local business. It is just plain carelessness. Then after a while the local man will fold up, the victim of his own unthinking neighbors and to their disadvantage as well as his own. What to do about this? Well, that's one of those economic questions that get everybody mixed up, they are so hard to solve. They raise a thousand sub-questions every one of which has to be settled first. The legislature recently had one such sub-question up, and nobody seemed to know just what the answer ought to be. This was the "loss leader" question, raised by independents against chains. It would seem at first sight that competition like that in the Nora Springs bread war which takes advantage of power merely to ruin small town competitors in order to control the field ought to be forbidden by law. Nevertheless the problem demands study. The trick is to encourage initiative and progress, to reap the advantages of bigness and mass production, yet to keep the little fellow going. When that is possible, well and good, let it be done; but where it cannot be done the interests of society as a whole must prevail. For progress can never be .static. The goal is always a higher standard of living, and whatever stands in the way must yield. Is It a Fairy Tale That We Can't Be Neutral? Donald Murphy, the facile, seductive writer who authors Wallaces' Farmer's brilliant editorial pages, discusses whether this country can stay out if Europe gets into another big war. Can we stick to neutrality? It's a fairy tale that we can't stay neutral, says Air. Murphy, that we are "bound to be dragged in." And he goes on to say: We can stay out if we want to badly enough Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands—all on the edge of the conflict in the World war—stayed neutral successfully. The United States, an ocean away, can do as well. That's a striking paragraph, typical of Mr. Murphy's clever, convincing way of putting things. But is it, or is it not, a half-truth as applied to the possible situation? To begin with, why did the countries named stay out of the World war? Evidently because they are small and weak, and they were afraid. How far would you apply that to this country, in case it were directly or indirectly menaced by another great European war? In the second place, would strict neutrality on our part necessarily protect Us from other than the economic damage which Mr. Murphy grants we could not escape? Would there no political menace in any case? Could circumstances arise which would endanger our existence as a nation? Let us suppose that the war takes place, that it is a life and'death struggle between the democracies on one side and the dictatorships on the other, that we stay out, that Japan aides with the dictators, and that the democracies are lick»4 What would then be likely to happen? Whose fleet was sacrificed in the World war? If Hitler won the hew war, what would become of the British and French fleets? What fleets would command the oceans on both sides of us? If the Germans, the Italians, and 1 the Japanese chose to attack us, could we beat them all off? If they attacked Indirectly by violating the Monroe doctrine, -what would be our situation? Would we sink to the standing of a second-rate power? " So the question of our neutrality .sn'i merely one of just staying out if Europe gets into another big war. We have to consider the dangers of neutrality as well as the benefits. For It's no fairy tale but solemn fact that to get into the war ourselves may turn out to be the only way to protect our country from later .disaster. Timely Topics For International joke of the year, no need to wait till December 31 to see what turns up. Nothing will beat Hitler's query to European small countries on whether they fear German designs. Rumania hit the nail on the head when it replied, in effect, "Who doesn't?" Who indeed, after what has happened in the last few months? The assumptions of these dictators are so amazing that they are funny. The state university Bureau of Business Research announces that the aggregate Income of iowans dropped from $1,663,300,000 in 1929 to ?949.049,000 in 1932, and is still $370,000,000 under ten years ago. You can think that over while you reflect that in the meantime taxes have gone up rather than down. Do you think that what you have contributed to the increase has been spent any more wisely than you would have done yourself? 'Mr. Hitler takes a dig at Mr. Roosevelt with the remark that both came into power at about the same time, but that one has solved the unemployment problem, whereas the other has not. Typical dictator logic, too. Ignores utterly that Mr. Roosevelt cannot employ millions in the army and more millions making war goods. Let Mr. Hitler reduce his army to a couple hundreds of thousands and cut the production of war goods accordingly, .then see what happens. The general feeling that the president's attitude towards the so-called axis powers, and lis utterances, are provocative and tend to embroil this country in European affairs is 1 indoubtedly justified; but whether his course s wise is another question. There is power- 'ul argument on both sides, and hard thinking s required to arrive at the answer. After all, t is a fact that as things stand today our 'rontier is on the Rhine. 'Mr. Roosevelt was right about that. Most town people never look at the market eports in the newspapers unless there is something sensational afloat. Yet even a fraction of a cent variation in prices of farm products may mean much to farmers not only but town people as well. The other day, for example corn went up a cent, and that meant no less than three millions for Iowa, or more han a dollar average for every man, woman, ind child in the state. Speaking of the pension craze, Robert Quilen, the newspaper syndicate writer, puts the situation of a large element in the population patly in the following observation by his 'Aunt Het' 1 : "Looks bad for me and pa. We ain't pore enough to get pensions, and we ain't rich enough to have a livin' left after payin." taxes to pension others." taxes to pension others." The pension advocates and the pensionaires seem never to think of anything so practical as that. "Politics are so rotten. Why did you allow vour name to be used for office?" State Senator Gillette, of this district, thus quotes his wife. Which could be a question for debate— that is, whether good citizens should stay out of politics, even if "rotten." On the contrary, shouldn't the good citizen get into polities' with both feet, if for no other reason, then iust to do what can be done towards a cleanup? Mrs. Gillette might provoke a lively de- late by posing these questions at her next club meeting. Opinions of Editors Something to Keep in .Hind. Sac Sun—Leo Dailey, when he addressed the Sac City Chamber of Commerce last week, called attention to the belief that within a few years the population of the United States will static. He further reminded us of the fact that the average community will not groAV much—that Sac City need not expect to become much larger than it now is. Exactly! Hoiv I)o They Do It I Storm Lake Pilot-Tribune—To us, the surprising feature about publication of state payrolls hasn't been the amount of salaries 'paid so much as the number of employes shown. When it takes four pages, set in agate type, to print the list of those who received money from the state university in a single year, we wonder how the said employes kept from stepping on one another. Hard Luck for Hitchhikers. Humboldt Independent—'The murder of W. L. Lowe, Salvation Army financial agent, by a young hitch-hiker he picked up recently, will go a long way to make it difficult for hitchhikers. It is reported that since the murder college boys who have been hitch-hiking rides home Saturday mornings are having a tough time of it. The Iowa autoists have decided to let the hitch-hikers hike'. Tit for Tat for Henry. I'reston News-Advertiser—'Henry Wallace, in an address at Omaha pulled that old, silly stunt of accusing business institutions of wrecking themselves to spite Roosevelt because they do not like him. Just so, Henry, did you throw Wallaces' Farmer into bankruptcy and come out of the transaction without a shirt just to spite Hoover because you' didn't like him? One theory is just as reasonable as the other. 'Twould Save Editorial Time. Northwood Anchor — In spite of its irony there is a lot of common sense in the suggestion of the Murfreesboro (Tenu.) Daily News- Journal as relayed by the Burlington Hawkeye-Gazette: "The editorial staff would greatly appreciate it if all citizens planning to take a few quick snorts of fire water before getting into the car to drive to grandma's or the football game would first stop by the office and leave a few notes for their obituaries." That Man Miller Ajjaln! Clarion Monitor—Las.t week Mayor Coe of Beluioud fined a Des Moines trucker for overloading. He did not have the $25, but his boss, when called on the telephone, agreed to pay the fine at once. When no check, came Mr. Boss was asked for an explanation. He stated the fine was too high and he did not think be would pay it. He sent a high-powered attorney to see the mayor, but failed to get the fine reduced. The following day Mr. Coe wag called on the carpet by Secretary of State filler, who sided in favor of the Des Moinee'con- cern. Miller was promptly told to go Jump i» the lake (or was it some hot place?) for his officious attitude.. . HODGEPODGE Webster—A stew of various fa* ft ralstare. Canadian Views New Deal TORONTO EDITOR VOlCfi S ACID [From the Toronto Globe & Empire.] STRUCK a tree In the court- housa yard Saturday during a storm, but little damage was done. If the bolt had struck the courthouse and started it alt Ire, the records of ownership of every farm, every house, every record of value, would have been seriously threatened. Few people in the county would have escaped legal cost in establishing the lost records through future court action, ***** .NO MAN .18 as good as hla wife tells the neighbors he Is, nor as bad as she tells him he is. And vice versa. ***** THE EDITOR OF the Hometown Gazette went nuts—blotto—screwy In the belfry. Explaining the -strange behavior of the otherwise meek gent, the office girl said It seemed to come on after a non-advertiser brought In a half page ad four days before press time; the town's big shot told the editor to write up a story In his own way and didn't ask to read a proof to see if it was 1 o. k.; a back subscriber paid $7.50 to date his paper two years ahead; a politician came in and said "hello" and then left; he received two compliments on two society stories and no complaints. She said the turning point seemed to come when a "service Institution" told the boss the outside printing salesmen were thrown out, and he was to get all Its printing. When last seen the editor was doing a Ferdinand south off'town, stopping occasionally to mutter about life not being worth while. NOW THAT SPRING is again here the matter of slacks appeal comes to the fore—rather the lack of slacks appeal. The new thing this year seem to be "play suits," and from the previews of the aforesaid "play suits" the play must be great fun. And the urge for brilliant plumage has evidently sneaked into the male line, for shirts are .a hodgepodge of colors instead of the staid whites or solid colors. Boys are partlqularly affected by the gaudy shirt urge. Can it be the world is turning tip-top? The women are wearing plainer and plainer suits. The men's wear magazines paint the male as a gorgeous creature in brilliant colors. Are the men to become Ferdinands and the women Amazonis? Oscar Oswald seems to think it is much more fun to chaise a skirt than to be chased by a shemale, and he calls them. But Oscar Oswald's experience with the latter is not as great as his bragging experience with the former. ***** THE COPY READER who slaves at an adjacent desk mutters that if some of the correspondents and others who write for newspapers were to take part in a spelldown in which the word "Lutheran" were given out they would be amazed to find they, had flunked. At least half a dozen times a week he has to write in the "a." What "gravels him" most is to find even good Lutherans misspelling a word they must have had intimate 3ontarft with all their lives. ***** ARCHERY CLUB STORIES are already gong the rounds. Neophytes have been astonished to discover unexpected carrying power in the arrows. There was, for example, the non-member who tried out a member's, bow with a mild pullback, expecting the arrow to drop ten feet away. Instead it shot across two lots and narrowly missed a neighbor who happened to come out the ,back door at that in- tant. Member and non-member hastened over to apologize, but the involuntary target proved to be a good sport. With a laugh she said: "Well, you nearly got your Indian that time!" ***** AND THEN THERE was the petite young thing who works in an office on a down State street corner (north side) and was seating herself with care all last week. At the fail- grounds she was stooping over to pick up something, when "Kerplunk!" an arrow landed in the region reserved for sitting down purposes. The amused doctor who treated the wound quipped, "Well, they could hardly miss a target like that!" ***** A MILDLY INDIGNANT citizen wonders whether he has not discovered the local ultimate in petty thievery. In his yard there was a common post with a 25c wren house on top. Now it is gone; nothing but the hole in the ground remains to mark the spot where it stood. Somebody must have had a powerful yen at night for a wren house atop a post! Or has there been a treasure hunt in town lately? ***** TWO SETS OF ROYALTY visited Iowa within the last two weeks. Secretaries Wallace and Hopkins announce that they will summer in Iowa, What in heck has Iowa got, anyhow? ***** HERE'S A CASE of tit for tat in the Advance family: Writing at Clear Lake, the editor couldn't remember either the street, the number, or the name of son Bob's fraternity at Iowa City, but did know the fraternity house was across the street from the house of his own old fraternity, Sigma Nu. So the letter went down with an envelope corner notation for delivery "At Fraternity House Across! Street from Sigma Nu." And back came a reply addressed, "Care the Other Newspaper Besides the Upper Des Moines!" ***** THE OLD MAN SAYS: "Gosh, the days are getting long," as the light streams In the window in the morning. The young man says: "Gosh, the nights are getting short," as the light streams in the window during the late evening. ****«• A BERLIN MECHANIC was sent to jail for three months for staying away from, his job "despite warnings from his employer." Let O I. O. members ponderJ;he curse of the American system as compared* with Jh^ ei •German system. " ; • [Toronto Globe and Empire.] The New Deal has been the, most colossal spendthrift In history and without results; It has welched upon Its platform promises of retrenchment; It Is squandering the money of the people In partisan propaganda; It has elevated' many a political accident to high office, including the supreme court; it has badgered and Impeded business, big .and small; It has 'held Up to public ridicule and hate the producers of material wealth — for .party purposes. It has built up power by exploitation of the misery of 13 million of unemployed, and has accomplished nothing for the latter after five years of glib .promises and expenditures of $20,000,000,000; It has sapped the morale of the people by inculcating the idea that the government owes every one a living; It has adopted the policy of scarcity, paying farmers for that which they did not raise; and at the same time spent billions to increase productivity of the soil. It has murdered hundreds of thousands of pigs while human millions cried for, sustenance; It has encouraged class hatred by abuse from high places; it has set capital against labor and labor against capital; It has tacitly sanctioned mob expropriation of property, and It has abridged personal freedom guaranteed by the constitution. We are tired to death o* Pink communism and sick at hear that a great nation leading the world In Initiative and Individualism should have been brought perilously close to Its knees by a Pled Piper of the air, fatuously fluting In ragtime; Jts whole mistaken popularity hae been based upon the sob appeal that a third of the nation is Ill-fed, Ill-clothed, and til-housed and the collateral Idea that the national sock 'is everlastingly stuffe'd full. No decent man, here or elsewhere, begrudges one penny paid out for the aid and support of those really In want, but the New Deal has squandered ' billions in deliberate, drunken-sailor . prodigality and concealment of facts and intent, • We believe 'the -richest country .the wbrld has known is headed for New Deal catastrophe, If a halt be not called at once; that Its people, and there are none finer, are being brought down to shameful misery by the most colossal stupidity that political insanity 1 'has yet devised for its own self-perpetuating ends. Corn Loans and Prices [Webster City Freeman.] 'Des Molnes Plain! Talk, very critical of the A1AIA, says in its last week's Issue: "Stocks of corn on Iowa farms on April 7, 1939, were estimated at 306,^07,000 bushels, according to the report of the state and federal cooperative division of agricultural statistics, issued through he office of Leslie M. Carl, federal agricultural statistician. This supply of corn on farms represents "0 per cent of the corn for grain production in the 1938 crop and Is the largest supply in bushels as well as In per cent of the crop for any April 1st date since the records were started In 1925." If we have a larger surplus of corn than at any time since 1928 low can the much better prices now prevailing than prevailed in 931 and 1932 be accounted for? Ve all remember when corn was down to 8 and 10 cents a bushel at ocal markets in this state, due argely to surpluses. If surpluses are larger now .than then, while prices are three and four times as much .what is the explanation? The Freeman-Journal believes that LOANS DO HELP THROUGH ORDERLY MARKETING [From the Webster City Freeman.] better prices are largely due to the corn loans of 57 cents a bushel While, loans will not fix prices they clearly have a tendency to equalize the flow to market, preventing in a measure market glutting, and market glutting always reduces values. Just the past week or two corn has advanced In price at loca Iowa markets by three cents bushel. That means, If we have 300,000,000 bushels on hand, It is worth now about $9,000,000 more than before the increase. Undoubtedly, a few months hence if another big surplus crop seems reasonably sure, prices will fall somewhat, but farmers who cooperate with the program will be assured of 57 cents for their corn and indications now are that fron 85 to 90 per cent of Iowa producers will cooperate this year. Reports from other states are to the effect that a few of them -wll make a better record in this re spect than Iowa will. 'The more widespread cooperation' is the smaller the crop will be and tha in itself would help values with out loans. THE MOVIES By T. H. C. THE HARDYS RIDE HIGH- Of all the many, serial pictures, he adventures of the Hardy fam- ly take first rank, because of the naturalness of the themes' and the •olished acting of Lewis' Stone and Mickey Rooney. The Jones family lerial is always a bit sensational ind just a little far'-lfetched; the lardy productions are closer to he hearts of any audience The Hardys Ride High is no bet- er, no worse, than the five prede- essors. The plot has to do with a 2,000,000 legacy which seems sud-' denly to have dropped into the Hardy laps. But the joy of being rich is only temporary, and the humble family, after a short span of "flying high," goes back to normal life when the sudden fortune vanishes into thin air through a echnicality of law. The ease with which all mem- )ers of the Hardy family reconcile hemselves to lost fortune Is somewhat increditable, but it follows the pattern of good ethics and morals. In other words' it points he moral that we must take only what rightfully belongs , to "us, avoiding the pitfalls of dishonesty. Certainly there is nothing wrong with this philosophy, and the result is always a pleasing and en- ioyable picture. CAFE SOCIETY— Here's a ,sly, sarcastic cinema lab at one of the phases of our modern society—the habit of living not at home and fireside but in cafe and night club. This isn't confined to metropolitan areas. Anyone who has tried to bring up a family in a small town knows there are junior cafe societies right here under our very noses. Children soon begin meeting, not so much in homes, but around soda fountains and in soft drink parlors, or even at tourist night clubs, and there doesn't seem much we can do about It. In fact the magazine Life, in an exhaus live research covering the entire United States, reports the condition general. Cafe Society deals satirically with the upper-crust of New York society, showing there is a considerable portion of these folk who go on year after year dissipating time and energy in useless; trivial pursuits. The cast is perfect. Fred McMurray, long a favorite of mine when cast in like roles, is the man who tames 1 the , shrew Madeline Carroll, after, a hectic battle. The weakest member of the cast is Shirley Ross, but she has a throaty, blue voice which Is ade quate to put over a song called Kiss Me With Your Byes, Her speaking parts are much less con- vlpclng. .- .. Cafe Society is well photographed, skilfully directed, and intelligently written, with a tit of father sound philosophy and enough nw-1- era banter to pace the production rapidly from start to linisb. LET FREEDOM A star-studded! east presented another epoch of .the frontier West and the building of the transcontinental railroad In an elaborate production called, for no reason at all, Let Freedom Ring. Manager Rice tells me the original title was The Dusty Road (taken from the theme song by Nelson Eddy), but fear that easterners might get the impression that it was a "wildwest show" forced the producers to change the name, This critic found the picture pleasing. The silver-sapU color- ng, the superlut.*ve cast of distinguished actors, the story Itself, all 'ombin«d to maKe the evening one of fullest enjoyment. Read this list of names: Nelson 3ddy, Virginia Bruce, Victor Mac- -aglen, Edward Arnold, Lionel Barrymore, Guy Kibbee, Charles Butterworth. And a great many others. Seldom has a more impressive list of characters graced' a picture of so little intrinsic value 'Coming, as it does, with Dodge ;ity and Union Pacific, we may include the play in a triad of post- ,lvil war productions. Like, also Jesse James, it shows the ruth- &¥% ° E rallroad aggression, though I sometimes wonder if a little of this cruelty is not included for dramatic effect. Were the railroads really so heartless? May- iet Freedom Ring gives Nelson Eddy opportunity to sing several inspiring songs, one, In particular Love's Serenade, being one of the ™ St J^ ordmgs I have ever heard. Mr. Eddy has a fine screen personality, in contrast with others of Tmh 0t y° iC !; 1 , ncludin s Lawrence Tibbett. He is almost a matinee idol m appearance, as witnessed his triumphal entry into Des Mpines in a personal appearance tour a few weeks ago. A Walt Disney technicolor short about a little grasshopper captured my heart completely and made me marvel again at this man's' genius for putting into even a libtle Insect a real human personality.
