Father Farrell explalned yesterday
I to a reporter for The Tribune how Im
! possihle lt was to keep the deadly
j "coke" out of the hands of school thil
dron under tho present law, even

pedlera who BOld cigarettes to tho ehll

I aecomplished a good work. About b
year later hp found that the chlldren
j had been taustht to snlff the "white

QBBBUttf? from thf same pedlcrs.

"Only day before yesterday," said the
priest, "I ran aeross a young fellow 'n

around to his parents. and between us
