THE MAKING OF NEW ONES
Salem, Mass., where, several hundred years ago, women were burned
as witches, has sprung into the limelight of publicity on account of the man

eigners. Instead of merely handing certificates of citizenship to. the mea
who had qualified in accordance with fhe requirements of the United States
government, the factory city thought it would make a greater impression

lobby, knocked him down. .
What he said or did to the wife Is not recorded.
Wives who need such drastic guardianship happily aren't many
though, truth to tell, the disappearing dancing dementia caused quite a
number of usually estimable women to act rather foolishly at times.
To be sure, the fist as a "weapon of social reform Is somewhat primi
tive, but on general principles we're glad this husky servant of Uncle Sam
used it. Such a jolt on the jaw may help a number of men to regain a due
respect for womanhood, even in cases jvhere women themselves fail to re
Jollity is fine, when clean. And that's a mighty good reason for keeping
it clean, dont you think?
