MOSTLY COMMENT
Mayor Harrison lightly reaches
out a Hearst-stained hand and
points to Alschuler as the best
man for the short-term senator
ship. Alschuler was very decisively
beaten by the- people in his race
for the nomination for governor.
Why should he be made an
United States senator?
Apparently, the best reason
the Hearst-Harrisonites have to
offer is just that Alschuler WAS
beaten. Which is our idea of no
reason at all.
The social register discloses
the alarming fact that there are
more female sassiety butterflies
than there are male.
My, my, my! Some of those
debutantes may have to marry a
man who works for his living if
they want any man at all.

while the police watch him with a'
health)- regard for their own
skins.
It is to be hoped that Judge
Jesse Baldwin will order an entire
recount of the vote on state's at
torney. Some of the plain people
are right curious to know who
actually was elected.
John Maynard Harlan has
spent a good part of his life talk
ing against recall of judges, and
being a living argument for the
recall.
If ever the police capture a real
auto bandit of the sort that kills, I
the city could replete its empty
treasury by exhibiting him in a
dime show.
A slant at the Hoyne-Cunnea
recount results is enough to con
vince any man that the duty of
an election judge depends on who
got him the job.
Doc Kirby, our well-known pri
vate banker, says he contributed
$500 of the money he looted from
his bank to Peter Bartzen's cam
paign. Andy Lawrence put Bartzen in
the discard by supporting him.
What's Kirby jumping on him
for?

WHAT'S THE REASON?-
TH ffeM,
Puzzle: Why will a girl with
shapely limbs always choose a
Highland costume to wear at a
fancy dress ball?
(P.S. The answer is a knees-y
one.)

Ships will be towed through
the Panama canal by electric lo
comotives running on each side of
the waterway.
