Herm takes a fling at -the Progres
sive Party for advocating the refer
endum and the recall of judges.
He attempts defense of the state
ment that the recall of judges was
one of-the "twin devils of anarchy,"
by citing the attack made on Judge
William Fenimore Cooper by the Ex
aminer. Herm thinks that if the recall of
judges law had been in effect that the
people, led astray by Andy Lawrence,
would have taken Judge Cooper
from the bench.
If we remember right, the protest
meetings that were held, or at 'least
booked to be held, against Judge
Cooper were about as much' of a suc

pions. Herm must have a very exaggerat

FINEST WOULD BE BETTER THAN PRETTIEST
Have you ever noticed how many "prettiest women in the world" there
are, according to the art critics' of the nations. Almost every city of any
importance boasts of at least one "prettiest woman in the,world."
It's a wonder to us that there hasn't been an insurrection of women
who have looked at and listened to this stuff so long and so patiently.
Rarely are the "prettiest women in the world" anything more than that.
For the most part they don't seem to have raised any children or any
ructions about any particular question of interest to womankind. In fact
they don't seem to have done anything vexcept be "pretty."
Why not let's have a series of "the finest women in the world?" Women
who have not specialized on beauty fads or followed the dictates of fashion,
but wlio have lived for the advancement of the race, encouraging their
brothers', sweethearts, husbands arid fathers to accomplish better. things
for the good of all mankind?
