of Qne man, when a public statement '

But, in any event, let us not lose

INTERNAL PIMPLES. We hear
and read a great deal of the world's
peace movement. It seems to me the
first thing to do would be to put a
stop to all lynching bees thafc take
place in the U. S. When we can com
pel peace within our own states we
can then talk peace. Do you think
for a minute that when ydu'lynch a
man that is all that takes place? Do
you know that you cannot mistreat a
man and at the same jtime make him
fear and respect you? That Is jiist
why we are having trouble on the
Mexican border. Do you. know that

at the rate of two to one. We all pity
poor Belgium, but do you remember
old King Leopold and what he did in

dishonesty and prejudice out of our
systems. We then will teach our chil
dren that all human beings'" have
rights tliat much be respected. We
will teach it in the school, home,

lynch murders because each state Jias

wrong. Why not live and let live, for ' toward his belt,

cops. Two of therb. were on the verge
of tears. The third was flushed with
anger and' shame.
Just as -I came up' to the 'group I
heard a roar 'from some animal that
was walking behintl me. I knew with
out turning around that it was the
bellow of a cop. I stopped to see
what would happen.
He shouted at-the girls to "get out
of here." Ha was only two feet from
the girls when he "said this, but you
might have thought it was two blocks
pifyour eyes didn't testify otherwise.
He made no attempt to find out what
the trouble was, but simply howled
The oldest girl said indignantly-td
him (when the howl had changed to a
growl) : "This man Insulted us," and
nodded' toward the nearest cop.
"What did he say?" asked the
"He said he would get a man to
stay with us tonight if we wanted
one," replied the girL "I
Now, I didn't get there in time to
hear the cop say this but I noticed
particularly that he didn't deny this
but instead he grinned.
'Tes, that's what he said," the oth
