THE TEXTBOOK GAME Every home which flnds Itself called upon at certain seasons of the year to dole out money for textbooks, should bo Interested in an uprising reported In various sections among taxpayers, who have decided that the rapid change in school texts Is becoming too much of a good thing- Only eight states and the District of Columbia, at the present time, furnish textbooks free to the students. Other states are considering this move. Textbook writers are paid on a royalty basis, that Is, they receive a certain amount of cash for each book sold. Authors We didn't get in on all of this joke, hut probably Ralph Miller could tell anyone the complete details. It seems that when the rodeo was here, Ralph remarked t/hat Clyde Miller, master mind of the rodeo, was an vncle of his, and several bystanders remarked that if such was the case, Ralph could probably get them free tickets, etc., etc. Well Doc Eater and Floyd Sanders, among others, got free tickets through the mail, printed on very thin tissue. The tickets, however, were returned to Ralph. It seems, accordng to Doc and Floyd, that the tickets had been used and they were quite put out as they had depended on Ralph for a good seat • * * So that local tlKatre-goers might be certain to see "Sorrell and Son 1 , as advertised at the Call Theatre last week. N. C. Rice called Omaha and demanded that the film booking agency get the picture here. A mixup In the booking had occurred and he called Omaha when the film failed to arrived. At 4:40 p. m. on Wednesday, the plane left Omaha and arrived here at 6:10 p. m., landing near the Country Club. It cost more to get the film here than th» first nights show took In, but that's service in capital letters. • • • The Klwanls clnb has a nerer-say-dle spirit . . . after losing the kittenball game, 25 to 12, they turnaround and challenged the Rotary to a tennis match . . . with fcPows like Andrews, Harrington and one or two other sharks, yon can't blame the Roterians for pondering the challenge. • • • Gladys Shumway dropped in one afternoon and said v«:i i*»ui uiiiLmiiu ui vwui iui cm^n uuvr*. ;w./»u. *-»uniw»^ ^j*nv«,y ^ _..-. ^«— n w_* ^i« make a great deal more money writing for private pub- she wteh«i she had taken up our proffered, bet. maae **_*_ __ j.i i* i « * _i _ i % * f i * A. •»r._ n v. «in*-4nn> o /»rvncr»T\Int rinfllTP flu ClPflT I-i8K€ -fl Ushers than they would for states and by frequent, revised editions, keep the books already sold from being used over too great a period of time. States which "publish 1 their own textbooks do only the mechanical work of printing and binding In their State-owned plants. They lease "plates" from the regular textbook publishers and the state prints exactly •what would appear In these books if they were bought by parents on the open market. California one of the states which prints its own textbooks, gives the definite figure of 40 cents as the average yearly cost per pupil for textbooks.

DEMOCRATS WILL FIGHT It Is very evident that the state democratic party will neither take too much for granted and assume that its ticket will be reelected. nor will it yield one foot of ground in the control of the state of Iowa without a struggle. They have adopted a platform that sounds excellent, although there Is nothing very startling about 1J, The usual statements about economy, and the endorsement of the state and national governments are contained in its points. New parts of the platform include an item calling for sealing of oats on government loans, creation of a state highway patrol, and adoption of unemployment insurance. The coming state fight, from a newspaper standpoint, seems to find the Des Moines Register & Tribune successfully alienating all or most of the other dailies in the state. Dan Turner was the Register's candidate- At least he made his original announcement exclusively in the Register at the outset- Since that time other dallies, republican for years, have either been lukewarm, or downright antagonistic to Dan's return to the state bouse. The situation seems to show that despite strong party affiliations, there are still to be found a tremendous number of persons who do not feel the bonds of party loyalty to the extent of voting for someone they do not wish to see In political office.

U. of A. W. stands for decency and order. It is not responsible 'or the individual who, through ignorance, starts a row of any kind. We wish to have reported to us who the party or parties were who took matters in their own hands Saturday night, and the same party or parties will be ousted out of the un- on, if there is any grounds for the ;ame. We were surprised and hurt when we heard about such rumors which went around, but we find that where- ever an organization of this kind is started that there are some who are fighting against it, who are always ready to place the blame of any disturbance to that organization. The I. U. of A. W. consists of men from every class of work who have banded themselves together to hdp to better their conditions of life. A depression or money panic always hits the working man the hardest because h.? is thrown out of work and has no way of earning a living for himself and family, and so in his desperation will cut his wages way down below what he can live on in order to get a jol> The only ones who can live on them are those who do not have a family and have a home paid for and only need a few cents a day to live on, while others who have a large family and house rent to pay, must starve or wsk for aid. As the different merchant organizations were organized to protect themselves from underselling one another so was the I. U. of A. W. formed that workmen might not cut each other's wages so that none could live. The union docs not set its wage scales any higher thnn a community can pay. It Ls left up to each unit to deckle what Is a fair wage in that particular community. The union stands behind the NRA one hundred per cent and will do all in its power to see that NKA wages business. They returned home Fri- rfr. and Mrs. B. I..
