Two judges were required to handle yesterday's holiday “visi tors,” charged with intoxication since Saturday. Both Judges Na dine L. Gallagher and Walter J. Casey spent nearly four hours clearing the ^climactic rush of1 June business in two separate courtrooms. On a day when court normally operates on a half-holiday basis, the two “drunk court” jurists had to stay 90 minutes overtime, with out declaring even a lunch recess. 21 Face Federal Charges. In the only other Municipal Court branch open yesterday, Judge Thomas D. Quinn likewise remained until 2 p.m. clearing a heavy docket of 41 locked up de fendants facing Federal charges. Explanations for the heavy traffic in "drunk court” were many and *s various as those usually offered in the face of any increase or decline in the activi ties of the city's drinking popu lace. During one break in the proces sion before him Judge Casey ob served to a reporter that “the police must have been very vigi lant over the week end.” Sees Money “Short.” Discussing the jump in the monthly figure from the cus tomary 1,400-1.500 average totals of previous months, one long-time clerk suggested that defendants may be having a hard time get ting collateral to post at police precincts. This spokesman recalled that back in the depression days in the 1930s daily drunk court lists usu-; ally passed the 200 mark. “Money ! was short, so they had to come' to court instead of posting and then forfeiting *5 or *10 col lateral.” this observer said. Another court attache sub mitted that he has found when ever a lenient judge presides over drunk court a single defendant may get arrested two or three times a month, necessitating a court appearance each time. “Stricter judges put a man away for 30 to 60 days, and that man stays out of circulation at least that long,” the attache observed. Penalties Are Average. Judge Frank H. Myers, on a two-day July 4 vacation, has been experimenting with a policy of giving .another chance to all de fendants he has seen for the first time. This policy has been in effect since June 6, and the jail population has decreased accord ingly, jail authorities have re ported. Yesterday’s penalties were about the average imposed by most of the Municipal Court judges. Fines ranged from *5 to *50, with cor responding alternative jail terms, while some of the hardier peren niels were given 30 days straight time. Suspended sentences were | few.

MARKET CITY * ... with fitt fork*** HOW MANY times have you been intrigued by those little ice cubes they serve in hotels with holes through the center? Now you can have them in your own home. Augusti’s, the stand that has such fascinat ing household gadgets, has a new' plastic ice cube freezer with a plastic center that presses down for easy removal of the cubes. It also leaves that center hole through which you can thrust straws, mud" dlers add' sippers. A pleasing new idea for adding zip to cool summer drinks. « « • THERE’S NOTHING more delectable than corn-on-the cob. Also, there’s nothing messier. Corn-on-the-cob can play havoc with a pretty sum mer dress or best suit unless you have some corn holders on hand. There are dozens on the market, but we especially liked those at Augusti’s stand. They’re Inexpensive—only 10c for a card of four—but they’re made of stainless steel, that durable metal. Tffey won’t twist, turn or get hot from the corn’s steam, either. If you want an easy way of removing your corn from the hot water it has been cooked in, insert the holders before cooking, then lift them out with a fork. They will get hot in the water, naturally, but bless them, they are cool before the corn reaches the table. Personally, we’d like to pre sent the man who invented cornholders with a special cer tificate of merit. Anyone who has been the innocent victim of an apparently harmless ear of buttered corn probably shares our feelings. * * • ANOTHER HANDY little gadget is the potato chipper. You can use it for lattice po tatoes, for French fries, for carrots, beets and cabbage. The things you can do with this little gadget are limitless, and it's a very good investment for 15c. There’s also a little bottle stopper with poureg that you might investigate. It has a plastic jigger cover that is use ful, too. IF you’re planning a picnic after the "Fourth”—just to be different — this stand has sandwich bags, paper cups, plates and all the other neces sities for lunch out-of-doors. * • • AGAIN we are in LIFE mag azine.
