WHEN COURTS WILL REFORM
Elihu Root, of course, spoke the
simplest triSth when he told the
American Bar Association that there
wasn't a bit of public need for "all
this bedevilment of practice by law?'
-Surely not. It's just hocus pocus,
like the antics of the Indian medicine
man and of some medicine men
who are not Indians.
But don't you fool .yourself, Elihu,
into believing that you lawyers will
ever straighten this matter out. Like
the jury in the case of the colored
brother acquitted of stealing a pig,
each one of you enjoys too well his
pieceof the pork.
Reform in the courts from within
has been promised these hundred
It will come when the disgusted
plain people, tired of being played fqr
suckers, go to the job of reforming
court procedure with an axe.

HOW IT FEELS TO BE BLOWN UP
From a letter written by a survivor
of the Pathfinder, the British cruiser
destroyed by a German submarine:
"My twenty-eighth birthday, arid I
believe I have had a good birthday
present by having my skin saved
'"I got off unsoratched bar a few
scratches on my, legs. All the snipes
company was in the fore part having
tea; in fact, I was just going down
to get mine.
"I saw a flash and the ship seemed
to lift right out of the water, down
went the mast and forward funnel
and fore part of the ship, and all the
men there must have been blown to
" 'Every man for himself,1 and I at
"once pulled off my boots, coat and
trousers, and over I went I think I
broke all swimming records trying to
put as much spaed between myself
and the ship, being afraid of suction.
"When she sank something blew
up and on came the waterr and round
and round I went like a cork. A buoy
came speding by me, and I grabbed
it, and that was what kept me afloat.
"33iere was a good sea running,
and I helieve I must have been in
the water over an hour, and was get
ting numbed with the cold when they
picked me up."
