The Fool Drivers Go
Free and the Killings
In Our Streets Keep Up
As this is written, automobile fatali
tie in the streets of Detroit in August,
with the month still young, total SIX.
]n the majority of the victims
have lrt*en children.
The wounded number 113.
Among *he<e are many old people.
The automobile, in the hand' of the
speed fool, is particularly rough on ch•:
dren and old people.
These figures may bo found supple
mented on another page of this news
papei. because we write at. 'G* tin.* ot
day .vhen mothers have tin is red with
th» drudgery' of the morning and a r
washed and dressed their tot> for - ut >f
doors, for tne afternoon ; ay.
We trust they will kiss then w-
The last victim was little Andrew
Topp, aged G.
Andrew and his sister. Hazel, aged ..
were playing with a toy wagon .n fi ’ t
of their home in Antietam-st.. 1 ies lay
evening, having oh. just the most* t t in.
when—
AN AUTOMOBILE <A ME THUN
DERING DOWN' UPON THEM.
The toy wagon was reduced to splin
ters.
They picked up little Andrew. There
was no life in the terribly crushed form
Near his lifeless body lay Haze;.
At the receiving hospital they say she
will die.
The driver of the automobile, 18 years
old, is held by the police.
But there have been other fatalities,
due to criminal driving.--*
There have been other arrests and
other drivers have been held by the
police.
Many drivers who have killed people
arc out on bail at the present time.
BIT, it seems, WE CANNOT GEI
THEM BEFORE A JUDGE AND JURY.
Our prosecutor seems to be asleep on
these cases.
He seems to be doing ABSOLII F.IA
NOTHING about them.
And that is why the killings keep up.
In all the street killings and maimmgs
in this city. JUST ONE LONE DRIVER
HAS BEEN SENT TO PRISON.
UNTIL THE FOOL AUTOMOBILE
DRIVERS OF DETROIT WHO RACE
THEIR CARS THRU THE RESIDENCE
SECTIONS. WHERE CHILDREN ARE
AT PLAY, ARE MADE TO FEAR
PRISON TERMS, THE KILLINGS
WILL KEEP UP.
When. Mr. Prosecuting Attorney, do
you propose to come out of your lethargy
and do something for the pedestrians of
Detroit and for the children who play
in Detroit?
When will children and old people be
provided an equal chance in the city
where life is worth living?
They Are Taking ( are of
the “War Babies” and
“War Brides” All Ripht
For two years after the war in Kurope
American manufacturers of products
needed by the allies enjoyed unheard-of
prosperity.
Taking advantage of the necessities
of nations fighting for life against the
most monstrous military machine in his
tory, these corporations charged ail the
traffic would bear—and then some.
The result was an orgy of Wa!!->t:
speculation.
The air was filled with >torie- of th**
marvelous earning,- of various "war
babies" and "war brides."
Tht men back of these c< ncerns that
have earned blood money want to part
with none of it in. the shape of war
taxes it they can help t.
They are as shy of e\n • profits
taxes ns a cat is of W’ator.
That is why they are watc: j' cr
gre-s -<> anxiously these day
Just when tin -enate finance mrrut

taneouslv from Capitol Hill where the
grave and r* \ rend enators -it and rr’..i
and stew over legislation.
One was that the extra taxr> In taken
out of the hides of the consumers.
T his did not meet with a very enthusi
astic popular ressjjonse.
£< the second suggestion wa trotted
out- raise the rxtia five biMioti by bon'd
issues.
The senators >ho propose bond issues
and the senators who propose taxing t( e
consumer are both alike fighting the
fight of the "war brides” and the "war
babies.” against a heavy tax on excess
war profits.
England, which, up t/» the present. h;y>
very largely financed the allies, is h<
treating her “war bride* and wat
babies" w.th kid gloves.
She is not putting the financial buruen
< f the war tne consumer*.
Eng and is taking 80 per cer t of the
excess profits f her big corporations.
And that ■* precise! > what th s coun
try should do.
War is r t a holiday.
It entails death and. suffering and ex
panse and privation.
Jr, a democracy th * burden shouM bo
*vjuitably distributed.
T' ore >u!d be no specially privileged
class.

“Uncle Sam ( an Have It”
"The government can have Armour
& Cos.
“The government can have J. Ogden
Armour."
These two quotations are from re
nt.irk' o* J. < >g-!en Armour after a visit
to Washington.
These are different sentiments from
those we have come t* expect from the
meat kings of the‘r.ati< n.
Wo h«-pt Armour meant what he *a:d,
and we have no reu'-n t<» doubt him un
til he proves he didn't mean it.
We are looking for devotion t* coun
try. T r loyalty * cur try. foi anew
kind of unselfishness —m these days of
trial.
And it is gratifying to see h w largely
our expectations are being met with
solid realization.
When It’s Hot
What is a democracy?
A democracy is a ■’ >rm of government
under which, when it'' r. t. a man may
remove hi> coat and appear in shirt
sleeves without pre u.dice t*> his 'ocial.
economic or political 'tatus.
This would Le the definition given by
Gov. R. L. Williams of Oklahoma.
“I’d like to meet those Belgian boys."
said Gov. Williams of the Belgian mission
Oklahomans are to welcome at Tulsa into
their >tate, “but not in frock coat and
silk hat—in Ju y, at any rate. If they
want me in the party the uniform will
have t<> t*e something like a Palm Beach
*uit.“ , !
After ail, w hen the formalities are over,
and the seconds are in their corners and.
the real battling logins, silk hat> and
frock coats —or any other uniforms—will
not count for much.
It’* hot in the trenches a- well a' in
Tulsa, ad the Belgians we are to save
will be glad to let Americans wear Palm
Beach *uits, or any other garb they fancy.
