much I give her." This was Fr?.u!t
Sowilski. "I aiii't been -working' for
a long while and I do drink some
times, but I've made as high as $14
a week and she ain't satisfied."
And by the skirt of Mrs. Sowilski
clung a tot of about 4, in the arms
of a friend was a girj of about 2, deaf
and dumb and unable to stand from
some nervous affliction, and in Mrs.
Sowilski's arms was the third child, a
baby.
"I'm willing to support my family
and behave myself, but she ain't satis
fled with the best I can do."
Work weary, with eyes strained,
face white, emotion spent, the wife
listened in silence save once, when
she cried out: "He beats me, see my
arm," and then she fought back the
sobs and said no more.
And Sowilski fought on, afraid that
he might be sent to the House of Cor
rection, willing, I have no doubt, to
do what he considered his best, but
wildly rebellious that that best, which
really amounted to little, was not
considered enough, and blaming that
condition on his wife whd could not
help it.
June dust, the glamor of youth, the
folly of girls who think marriage is
an escape from work, the hot-headed-ness
of boys who regard marriage as
merely an act of possession and not
a responsibility and then this.
And Mr. Reedy told me that it
would be conservative to say that
forty per cent of the cases that come
into the court are based on the rash
ness of boys and girls who enter into
marriage when the economic problem
forbids it.

WE'LL ALL HAVE BOTH EYES
AFTER THE FOURTH OF JULY
- Nix on the lockjaw,
Nix on the maim,
Loud noise explosives
Are out of the game.
Fourth of July scares
.Have all been excused,
You'll just nave to yell
If you're overenthused.
There will be nothin' to waken you
up at 4 o'clock on the morning of the
Fourth of July if the order of Mayor
Harrison has the wanted effect.
Nothin' doin' but red fire and spar
klers, says the regulation. And cops
will be out to give you a ride in the
wagon if you touch a match to a can
non cracker or a skyrocket.
"Safe and Sane" is the argument.
It's a boycott on the ambulance man
and the undertaker. And we will all
be able to stand up and take notice
on the "morning after the day before."
