WHAT SOME WOMEN THINK. OF
A EUGENIC LAW
That women as well as men should
be examined if a eugenic law is
passed was the concensus of opin
ion at the meeting of the Eugenics
Educational society at. the City club
last night
Beyond the one point upon which
all agreed, each of the eugenists had
a separate idea of the system. Among
the views expressed were:
Dr. Anna Blount I am for a strict
marriage law, providing for examin
ations of bride and groom fifteen
days before the wedding, the exam
ining physician to get $10 for his
work.
Dr. Mary Neff It isn't so much a
law that is needed as education of
the masses. The boys of the colleges
are the ones that are diseased. Fewer
men of thirty-five and over are dis
eased than college boys. We want to
begin to save the boy for whom the
tentacles are out as well as for the
girl.
Miss Jane Addams said: "To be
fair, the eugenics law must be made
to include women as well as men.
Besides, one mustn't think that all
disease is from, wrongdoing. Consti
tutional weakness would disqualify
for marriage, according to my idea of
the engenics question."

HOYNE'S TAX ACTIVITIES NET
COIN FOR COOK COUNTY.
The success of Hoyne's tax fight
has been proved in dollars arid cents.
The earnest manner in which his of
fice has gone after the dodgers
brought results without litigation.
He has issued a statement giving
the following, figures:
"Our collections on the 1913 delin
quent personal property taxes
amount to $108,000, and we have
been collecting for less ,than a
month," said Henry A. Berger, as
sistant state's attorney. "The year's
collections will total more than
$1,000,000.
"The records show that in no past
year did the old county attorneys
ever collect more than $60,000. The
amounts of their collections ranged
from $40,000 to $60,000.
"The $108,000 brought into the
treasury thus far came without filing W$
a single Buit. The people are willing
enough to pay when they realize the
county is in earnest in its threats to
force payments as provided by the
revenue laws."
