Baptists assail movie as one. of
divorce causes. Baptists are always
assailing non-essentials and side-stepping
the real issue. The real cause of
divorce is generally found to be
wrangling over the limited family
purse. Poverty and ignorance of mat

sexes, are the two greatest causes of
divorce. But divorce is no crime
neither is it a disgrace. Better a di

resorted to his lawful right uot lo

dispense with all answers and proceed

questions drawn up by the Department
They were faithful copies of the
Lnsk and Senate Committee questions.
The inspector seemed to hate his job
Mild laughed to keep himself in good
humor. "I suppose," he remarked to
Martens at one point, "if I keep on
loading this stuff I may come to be

Without having intended to, Mar
tens made answer to one question.
"Are VOU the duly authorized repre

reading from the Palmer catechism.
"Yes'" exclaimed Martens, making his
sole contribution to the record the
one statement that Palmer has striven
to deny or to conceal.
When he had read all the funny
questions into the record. Shell an
nounced that the case of the Govern
ment was virtually concluded. Tho
hearings were then postponed for a
fortnight, and Martens departed in
substaneial possession of the thine he
had originally demanded a copy of
tne evidence against himself.
Palmer appears to have shifted his
position from the original contention
that Martens is a member of some
Communist Pnrtv, somewhere (which
ho is not), to a contention that Mar

THE COMPROMISE VERDICTS
IIre in Portland the compromise
verdict has become a fad, it seems.
Every Criminal Syndicalism jury that
ever "went out" and "came back
in" has brought back some sort of a
miserable compromise verdict. There
have been verdicts of "guilty", with
recomandation of "leniency": "guil
ty", with recommendations of "ex
treme leniency." and now we have as
the latest, "guilty", with recommen
dation of "parole."
Is there no longer to be found, in
Multnomah County twelve men who
have the courage of their convictions?
Why add insult to injury, in this
cowardly manner, l.y asking a victim's
pardon after having railroaded him?
If these men were guilty, why
couldn't their respective juries say so
and be proud of it? Knowing that they
had "served their country well" by
convicting a prisoner; they, never
theless, seem to be inclined to cringe
and crawl in his presence, and to kiss
his feet, indicating that they didn't
mean to do it.
