MUK. HAMON'S MISTAKE
Tho oppeal lo conscience which appeared on
tho first page of Tho World Thuisday, contrlli.
uted by nn "lmpaitl.il contributor" who Ii
nevertheless a well-known gentleman not only
In Oklahoma but throughout the nation, should
find an Instant hearing at the hands of thosu
jjntlomen farthering thu llnmou regency move
ment, and should make u convincing appeal to
the widow and mother.
' No sincere friend of either tho dead man oi
thu living widow advised her to Inject herwlf
Into tho political uren.t. for the wry good re.i
eon that such advice Is utterly lacking the ele
jrjtnU of friendly consideration for her or for
the name she hours,
iXhM point Is vindicated l y thu results Uiuh
far. In a statement given to tho correspondent
of the Ifansii't (.'Ity Htnr Tuesday Mrs. Ilntnon
(.Mrs. .lake llamoti, not Mrs. Clara llamnn) de
nounced us a falsehood tho Htory of her bus
hand's relationship with Clura Hinltli llamon.
"No such pctsoii as Clura Hmllh exists or lino
ever existed," declared the widow uho hns evi
dently thrown herself body and soul Into tho
political Intrlmid pretended frlendri haVn sat
afoot. Hhe declared Mr llamon's lovu of homo
ii lid family and asserted that her own life had
not hcn darkened by the Hmllh woman.
In thin statement the widow forfeits thut
tender conniilerntlon at tho lunula of tho public
which her widowhood mid pitiful experience
I'l.ilmed for her. Ilectiuso If she Insists on play
ing tho practical guiti" of politics In the man
lier nnd .icvordliig to thu rub-i of her lute
husband, then neither her ir-x nor her
widow weeds can protect her from the sor
did, i old, inercllesii analysis uhleh a proud, iiolf-
respecting public must and will undertake In
If the poor woman linn a lilend In the world,
for (toil's soke let th.it friend rescue her and
her children from the plight that a henitless
ntnl selfish partisan cnb.il havo placed her In,
Tltlii llamon scandal has but started. Clara
Hmlth will eventually take tho wltnesi stand
nnd under oath iclalo a story that will keep
thn fires of sensational scandal burning lor
months, With the widow In thn political arena
nnd rnnnciticntly In controveisy, the public will
be constantly asking "which Mrs. Iluinnn?"
Anil the children, who nhnuld not be tluiH
punished and would not lie If the mother wero
permitted to withdraw Into a cloistered llfo of
privacy, will bo regaled with that which no
ibllil should ever hear. To brazenly deny that
truth is truth Is but to Invite ,i public odium
thut will prem-ntly beeotui' Intolerable.
If thn widow of Jako llamon really has n
ft lend In the world It Is high time that friend
tame to her rescue with sound advice. Those
who nro masiiuerudlng us her friends only
provn their wllllngncB" to surrlflco every Instinct
of motherhood and morality upon the altar of
their own selfish ambltlomt.

of "Old .Subscriber's" letter that I wish to deal
with. It Is too Idiotic to merit serious attention.
"Old Subscriber"' Is shocked by the alleged
wickedness of thu pictures. And It can hu said
that thero aro silly screen production thai
should bu barred from exhibition. Hut the
place to rectify that evil Is In tho headquarters
of the statu censors, appointed tn regulate such
spectacles. A bad picture Is- bad on any day.
It Is no worse on Sunday than It Is on Satur
day. Ho thu mattr rcullv constitutes an Issue

The persons who clamor most loudly for
abolition of moving pictures are usually narrow
minded Individuals who see sin tn everything
they look at but their own performances. As a
lute, sane people nre ublo to look at the aver
age moving picture without sustaining uny dam
age to their morals. The pictures usually shown
In reputable show placvs are not dangerous.
Hume of them are capable of exerting good Im
pressions as to light and wrong. However, If
they need "editing," the censors should be forced
to engage In that- uplifting activity,
"Old .Subscriber" shouhl go to the fountain
head of the matter undt'r discussion. It Is
nwny beyond a one-day morality, movement..
And In the meantime he .should endeavor to
brace hlmselt morn firmly ngulnst any sort -of
temptation. He must learn to turn his gaze
In another direction when the h-iro and heroine
go to a clinch In tho fade-out effect at the end
of tho phantom drama on tho screen. Others,
less self consciously susceptible to the weakness
ot thu flesh, may look rit the "mushy" scene
and laugh at tt without sustaining thu slightest
injury to their plain, every-day morals.
