TRY IT AGAIN
Women maybe are, too strong
for police service. Up at Spo
kane the dear men thought they
would flatter the women folks by
appointing Mesdames Edith Ash
baugh and May Horton special
police officers. The two ladies
vjere interested in the Child's
Welfare league, and it was be
lieved that they might do some
good in looking after children.
But policewomen Edith and
May. were of strong opinion that
the welfare of men needed look
ing after about as sincerely as any
welfare, and so they started to
search a hotel in behalf of any
Sort of welfare that might have
got lost therein.
Being met at the doqr by the
proprietor with a purse in hand
and a question as to now much
they wanted, the- lady police re
ported the thing; to the news
papers. Whereupon rtheregular
police set up a loudroarand the
commissioner of ip.ublie jsafety,
one Zora Hayden, has stripped
the stars. off Mesdames Ashbaugh
and Horton, as a matter of police
safety if not public safety.
There are queer public officials
fn this world, and the queerest
are those who give women au
thority, and expect to confine her
field to pretty ribbons or any
other sort of trimmings. Spo
kane should begin all over again
by reappointing Mesdames Ash-
'baugh and Horton with special
authority to look after the wel
fare of men. Curfew wouldn't
ring any night, because there
wouldn't be any need of curfew
