TO PRY DEEP INTO THE
BRANDT-SCHIFF CASE
Albany, N. Y., Feb. 21. "The
Brandt case is not 'dead unless
Commissioner Hand is dead,"
said Gov. Dix today. "I have not
seen Commissioner Hand yet, but
understand he is to come here. I
have talked the matter over with
Attorney General Carmody, and
he is now going over the testi
mony, and I expect he will make
some recommendation to me
later. I want a full and complete
investigation, and believe Mr.
Hand will have one. I can do
nothing further until I get his re
port. I may say, however, that
the matter is going through un
der his direction."
Gov. Dix's statement resulted
from the postponement of the in
vestigation yesterday when Dis
trict Attorney Whitman objected
'to Mortimer Schiff and his attor
ney, Howard S. Gans, testifving,
declaring that by so doing theyp
would become immune from
prosecution for alleged conspir
acy in connection with sending
Brandt to prison for 30 years.
Commissioner Hand refused to
make a decision, and said he
would put the matter up to the
governor for action.

Freshmen co-eds of the Univers
ity of Wisconsin are throwing a
fit today.
The cause thereof is the annu
al report of Miss A. S. Mahew,
physical director of the women's
"gym".
Miss Mahew, in her report,
has the gall to remark that 51 per
cent of the Freshmen co-eds are
knockkneed.
Now, you can see how it is for
yourselves, girls. Of course, not
a single member of the Freshman
class belongs to that 51 per cent.
Not on your tintype, and they've
been trying to explain it ever
since the report came out.
But what's a poor girl to do
when a rude, nasty, unfeeling boy
says:
"Oh, well, you may'not be one
of the 51 per cent. But you've
got to show me."

THE GARDEN
I have a little garden
That blossoms to the skies
And spreads its golden glories
In beauty for my eyes.
The flower pathways lure me
Through ecstacies of dream,
And all the day and night-time
Its incensed altars gleam.
It shuts me with its hedges
Away from street and mart;
But best of all that grows there
Is my contented hearty ni
