Democracy is a passion for justice—a loajthing for injustice —a
strong moving purpose which rejoices to see men succeed and helps
them to. Democracy consists —not in the right of the strong to claim
and take, by force, advantages for themselves. Democracy strives
to open the door of opportunity to the least privileged, to give en
couragement to the dispirited and hope to the desperate —to reward
the brave and daring, and to advance the virtuous of every race;
religion, class, and national origin.
America is, and has been, a great nation —not because it has
offered rare prospects of success to some —but because it has ded
icated itself to opening the way of fulfillment to all. '

to administer its duties sympa
thetically, with a full understand
ing of the problems brought be
fore me. I have considered it
most important to impress those
brought to this court with the
dignity of the law all peace offic
ers must enforce, but, at the same
time, to point out that justice
sometimes may best be served by
conciliation rather than by punish
The justice of the peace first
assumed her post in 1934, after
serving as a clerk in the office

a successful candidate for re
