The custom of the police depart
ment in arresting little offenders in
wholesale fashion while hey let the
big ones get away is given a terrific
scoring by Chief Justice Harry Olson.
Lately the municipal court calen
dars have been loaded to gunwales
with cases that amount, to nothing.
It is a matter of record that 67 per
cent of the cases brought in. by the
police are discharged. A big percent
age are youths in teens who have
done nothing worse than play a boy
ish prank or girls picked up on mere

than to arrest a woman because her
hatpin is sticking out too far.

streets arresting women and not
doing much else. There is little
guarantee that it will be properly
conducted. It Is a job lot way ol
doing business."

They hold the trump hand now.
You'll need "that ace that's up your
And many more, I vow!
You're noted for your "nimble wit,"
Your furtive, well-trained brain,
But a woman has outwitted you,
And, take heed, she'll turn the trick
