A POINTER FOR JUDGES Some
of the judicial cowards now sitting
on the bench I mean the .kind that
lick the boots of political and ".news
paper bosses "and run to newspaper
offices at the 'beck and call of pub
lishers may . learn a lesson in the
result of the city election." If they
have any sense atall, outside of their
fool lawbook, sense, they will take a
tumble to' themselves and- see thafr
the newspapers don't control the peo
ple. The old game of two or three
newspaper publishers getting togeth
er with a fewpolitical bosses and fix
ing up a "nonpartisan" judicial slate
and putting over a bunch of political
nincompoops as judges is about
Judge Scully showed the publishers
'up when he was elected with the trust
press fighting for Northup, and Scul
ly telling the publishers to go take a
jump in the lake. Now Thompson
has licked the trust press out of its
"boots or rather the people have.
And they may do the same thing over
again if the newspaper and political
bosses frame up a judicial slate made
up of legal boot-licking mollycoddles.
The folks are apt to get tired of
judges with rings in their noses.
LOVE OR WAR. Secretary of the
Navy Daniels merits a little applause
for his action in reinstating Ensign
."Austin, who was dismissed from the
navy a few years ago J or. .marrying
a girl he loved. -It was clearly proved
that Austin was in ignorance of the
regulation forbidding marriage of
midshipmen and, apparently, his im
mediate superiors were also, for they
were present at the wedding and said
never a word.
Thank heaven that fool regulation,
is a'thing of-the past! The difficulty
of keeping" the navy up to its full
complement officers or enlisted men
has caused Uncle Sam lately to
awaken' to the fact that the average
American you doesn't 'hanker for a
job that deprives him of, most of his
birth rights. He doesn't object to
service but he does to servility. An
occupation that arbitrarily prevents
-a man from marrying isn't one to ap
peal to the kind of-men we need in
our riavyr Secretary Daniels struck
the popular chord when Tie said:
"When regulations' interfere with
the course of rue love, there's only
one thing to do love."
The statement-thatbeauty is only
skin deep also applies to Easter eggs.
A Wheaton, III., man named Love
less is accused of, having two wives.
What's in it, anyhow?
A sun spot 100,000 miles long has
been discovered, which reminds us
that the freckle season is at hand.
We ace moved to wonder-what the
present king of England's pa wquld
have said about this Dry thing.
Sometimes the" viewpoint of a
woman is beyond us. We have one
girl friend who won eight prizes and
$200 in cash playing bridge for tie
benefit of the poor Belgians during
