THE SOLID IVORY BAR. A host
of women In New York are trying to
get the legislature to provide for a
woman judge in the children's court
of New York city. They petitioned
the legislature to the effeqf and
argued that a woman judge could do
much more towards reforming youth
ful offenders and preventing criminal-making
punishment than men
judges have been doing In that court.
There is one conspicuous opponent
of this woman-judge-for-children
movement. That is the New York
Bar association. It, too, sent a rep
resentative to the legislature; it, too,
argued Its side of the matter. Now,
listen patiently and get the full Im
port of tris learned bar association's
argument against women judges for
a children's court.
"The proposed law is unconstitu
"Because there was no woman
judge prior to April 19, 1775, there
fore we can have no woman judge
now!" Something to do with some
ancient common law or state consti

judge in New York state 140 years
ago, there can't be one now!
Hereafter we are not going to
dodge any automobiles or street cars
that our great, great grandfathers
didn't dodge in 1775. We won't have
any electric lights or telephones and ,
we won't go to the movies because
great, great grand-dad didn't.
Nobody home! Solid ivory!
Sh-h-h. When you catch a pick
pocket don't call him a thief. That
Syracuse case proves that a fellow
may do anything between 1886 and
1916, but you must prove that he'did
it between 9:30 a. m. and 11 p. m.
on August 19, or he is not guilty.
Stock market panics seem rather
tame these days. Evidently the peo
ple have reached the conclusion that
those who get into Wall street have
been warned and have no one but
themselves to blame if they are
Aftpr digesting the ruling of that
Syracuse judge we'll never again get
fussed up when lawyers, judges and
others complain that the American
people are losing their respect for

whether or not Queen Mary has
caught King George climbing up the
closet shelves to find a bottie.
We are wondering whether or not
