The nation, also, has had the opportunity of viewing his work through a newspaper o hls vlews an t of Ding's wrath is a Darling has been a leading conservationist for many moons. Yet during republican STs hT gained little headway. With the advent of a conservation-minded democratic ^ministration Ding was called to Washington and placed In chw of an Important bureau. He endeavored to^glt larger appropriations for hi. department powibly with the theory that if money was to be £?*hl. department should gain a larger *.«. When he could not get everything he desired, he toft U>e bureau, utterly disgusted. Now Ding's .owness took expression in his «rt™**« d one of this pet themes is government extravagance. Yet one of nis reason's for leaving Washington was the failure to obtain a greater government appropriation for his department. . As we understand conservation, Ding s pet subject. it Is a matter of conserving not only the Ran tatt. streams and the fowU of the air, but the fertility of the soil, the remnants of our forests. and natural resources such as water power, to say nothing of flood control. That, in a larger sense, tambr! important than fish and fowl, because , flsh and fowl can be propagated In comparatively short time, whereas soil and forest cannot Ding has helped to ridicule the AAA and present farm conservation program-a conservation Pr0l Dmg°nas "helped to ridicule a shelterbelt idea hi the middle west-a conservation project for soil because of the simple truth that he cannot be ev- "^Tcontribution to .afety on the however, can be made »y every motorist. obey the traffic regulations, observe warning signs and drive courteously at, all times.

It would be bad advertising if our president had to wear a patched coat after four years of New Dealing. Besides he could borrow a coat from some of his high •******£«•. a wrong font coat and pants would ook better than patches. And the president Is a rich man n the first place, and it is not necessary for him to wear patches on his spare pants (or coat*). Well have to see the patched elbow before we believe that one. Where The True Heart Beata Newton News: Most encouraging fact about the affair to date is that apparently at last some real attention is being paid to the rniddlewest as a part of the United States. Should be that way. for out here is where the true heart of America beats. • • • Local Option Fine for Bootleggers Webster City Journal: The Times-Republican observes "that local option on liquor will be an issue in the next general assembly is well evidenced by the action of church conferences demanding tne right of communities to refuse liquor stores located by arbitrary establishment." Local option seems fair and reasonable enough, but the Freeman- Journal remembers when we had it and it would work much better in those days, before the almost universal ownership of automobiles, than it would now. As we see it, local option would simply play into the hands of bootleggers. ^ng .-d helped to ridicule the CCC and PWA projects, which are conservation-minded forms ol caring for unemployed. Ding has used his cartoons, as he has a perfect rieht to do, to oppose the first administration in yean which gave a tinker's damn about the larger aspects of conservation. We respect Ding's ability and his right to express himself as he sees fit, but we cannot reconcile his vitriolic opposition to the administration, with his repeated chants about the necessity for conservation measures. THE KING AND MBS. SIMPSON About every so often something comes our way that is taken seriously in certain quarters, but Oaokc-Uke fort at a Joke to other*. The current problem along that line is the King of England and Mrs Simpson, his American-born friend. Now as we understand this, the King met and liked Mrs. Simpson. He liked her so we!l that he even took her on a yachting trip, which is something, and has presented her with some nice gifts Mrs Simpson, however, has a husband and tn» husband is now getting or already has a divorce. Thus, Mrs. Simpson in left free to become the Queen of England. But the British-liny goodness! They blind their eyes, and stuff up their ears, at least as far as the press is concerned. Papers to print anything about the mutter; American magazines and papers with the news are censored. And on this side of the water just the opposite is the case.

Out of Town Fire Truck* Help At Bancroft Fire A fire of unknown origin started in the old produce station next to Kennedy's department store on Tuesday morning. The Burt and Algona fire trucks came to assist the Bancroft volunteer fire fighters in putting out the blaze. Much damage was done to the building which is owned by Arthur Murray. The buildings on cither side were undamaged due to the efforts of the fire fighters. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Thies visited relatives in Lone Rock Sunday. Herman Bauman, Swea City, and C. M.

Mr OF^rf Jtfrt Afyihr/p.- K>nn«fly The cost is we:l equal to the task of making this period of history live again. Nova Pllbeam, noted sixteen-year old English actress, is the Lady Jane. Sir Cedrlc Hard wicke is the crafty Earl of War wick. John Mills, who plays Jane s young husband, will be remember ed Jrom "Born to Glory." Th< child king, Edward VI, Is portray ed by Desmond Fester. Dame Sybil Thorndike is Ellen, Jane's chaperone, who warns her that "Ix>n don is the Devil's playground.' Given Frangcon Davis has the rolf of Bloody Mary Tudor. The tenseness of the drama is heightened by the magnificent way in which the music has been com posed to vivify the moods of the picture. « » * "Olrl'n Dormitory" l» * somewhat stylized presentation of a sympathetic story about a young girl's love for the Herr DIreckto of the school.

The «* mer * m "" might have shown more Ingenuity in taking closeups, rather than repeating the same pose. She exemplifies expertly the sweet, young thing who knows how to f«* h *J man away from the devoted friend who has loved him for years. Strictly speaking, the end of the story carries very little convlcUon and no doubt would have added more lustre to Mile. Simon's performance had her wiles been less successful. Ruth Chatterton plays her unhappy part competency. Herbert Marshall is the same bewildered no-longer-young bachelor of "Accent on Youth", but he does it well. The other professors on the staff offer diversified character bits of considerable strength. The approach to the making or the picture Is reminiscent of "Maedchen in Uniform," a German movie of several years ago; but is less consistently carried out. However, it is interesting to watch the Hollywood producers gradually adding to their previously superior material facilities, the much more artistic technique of the foreign producers. Repetition is a device which has been used with telling effect—overdone a bit In some of the individual portraits—but still quite potent, in the fencing drills, in the daily routine and even the girls' dialog, producing a strong impression of the regimentation See the 1937 GRUNOW models at your Gamble Store.

Weekly Health Message (Prevue) "Nine Days a Quwn" l» a handsome (iicture. superbly played. It is of particular importance to those interested in English history, as well as to everyone who likes a dramatic story well told. Certainly ull who enjoy the cinema should see it. "Nine Days A Queen" is the story of the brief life of Lady Jane Grey, from the death-bed of Henry VIII when he announces the succession lu the throne, until the end of Lady Jane's life. The plot is got under way immediately after a brief identification of the cast of characters and moves swiftly and logically tu the climax. Abounding in incidents and characters, it is nevertheless consistent and clearly written. No pains have been spared to make the picture absolutely accurate in costume und setting. Period gowns from the museums were laithfully copied. Every piece of jewelry is, an exact duplicate of Itith century original. Authentic harp, lutes, guitars were borrowed and even an original (forerunner of the modern piano) a madrigal, called "The King's Ballad," written by Henry VIII, was obtained from the Harley collection in London. ale;* liicreu&e Webster City Journal: That confidence m low.i land is returning is demonstrated by increased sales- The Federal Land Bank of Omaha reports Iowa farm aales up to the tirst of October increased by 87 over the same period last year, the number of sales this year amounting to :M1 and Uie aggregate sum paid was $1,315,000.
