WRITES OF NATIONAL
"This was good enough for my
Mother. She lives in perfect con
tent under these conditions" is the
most frequent comment we get from
the men opposed to advanced legis
lation for women.
True enough, but what these good
sons seem to forget is that in the
days when their mothers were only
somebody's daughters, "present con
ditions" seemed as radical to their
fathers as the demand to sit on jur
ies and make our own contracts
seems to the paternal mind of to
How shocked these fathers of our
mothers were when nice young girls
wanted to go to college, to enter pro

JUDGE BENTON SHOULD BE RE-ELECTED.
Judge W. A. Benton has made a splendid record as City
Judge and should be re-elected. During his term of office he
has shown that he possesses those qualities of head and heart
that are essential for one filling a judicial position. Those who
have had dealings before his court have been impressed with
his fair and impartional manner of handling the cases before
him. His legal capacity and fitness for the position from a more
technical standpoint is eloquently testified to by the practically
unanimous endorsement given his candidacy by the local bar.
That Judge Benton has such an endorsement should and does have
great weight with the balance of the commuunity.
There is a well established conviction amongst most think
ing people that the Courts should be kept out of and above parti
san politics. The only way this can be done is to select as Judges
those best fitted for the position, without regard to personal likes
and dislikes, and regardless of factional alignments, and when
ever possible to re-elect those Judges who have shown their fit
ness by proper service.
The reason for such a policy in this city is apparent. The
City Judge in addition to passing upon civil cases, has the duty of
inflicting penalties upon such violators of city ordinances as are
brought before him. With many violators of the law a convic
tion arouses personal enmity against the .ludge. Recognizing the
weight of this influence, it is incumbent upon those who favor
consistent law enforcement to rally to the support of a Judge
who has fearlessly discharged his duty.
Judge Benton has an exceptionally fine record, and has filled
the position of City Judge to the satisfaction of the community in
general. This service entitles him to re-election as Judge of the
and then the boarders were euphem-I
ised into paying guests.
A sweet old lady but recently told
me how disgusted her husband was
when she joined a woman's club! He
declared she would be unsexed by
such masculine procedure. and she
had to wage a battle royal beforel
he was convinced that she could still
be a good and faithful wife and I
mother even if she did read a paper
on "The Heroines of Shakespeare,"
of "The Life of Lincoln," before a
group of women.
Books and plays have been written
on the fact that the radical of to-day
is usually the conservative of to
morrow, the new discovery is that
old men are much more likely to be
"sot in their ways" than are old
As far as ooservation can replace
statistics, the progressive radical
movements among men are cham
pioned largely by youngsters, the1
young men just out of school and
college, the ambitious young lawyers
and politicians. Yet in the parade
in celebration of the Dedication of
the new Headquarters of The Na
tional Woman's Party, the age of
the marches for this most advanced
of woman's causes, would have av
raged around forty. It was not a
parade of enthusiastic youths. There
vas more grey hair to be seen than
golden, black of brown.
Perhaps the reason for this may
>e that older women have had more
)pportunity of seeing now often the
.aw fails in justice to women, they
nave tested the "privilege theory" and
have found that rights better with
stand the test of time, circumstance
and "all manner of husbands."
The radicalism of the much dis
cussed "flapper" is seldom political,
it is usually social and intellectual,
advanced theories among mature
women include reform by civil and
The day when men drop the "good
enough for my Mother" slogan and
begin to legislate for their daughters,
who sadly need all the help they can
get in this world which insists on
moving very fast these days, we will
have laws for women which apply to
modern conditions instead of old
statutes which are historic imple.
