JUDGE HOPKINS TELLS U. C. TO
GO WAY BACK AND SIT DOWN
Every once in a while the United
Charities sticks its nose into some
thing just about long enough to get
said nose nipped a bit.
Today Judge Hopkins in the court
of domestic relations bit the U. S.'s
nose way off. Here's how, why and
Ayear ago Stanley Bickham, who
has a wife and family, was placed on
probation under a Mrs. Barbary. So
far so good, but a few days ago Stan
ley "blew" thirty cents for booze.
The United Charities heard of it and
notified the probation officer.
Bickham was taken to court and
the United Charities said they would
not do anything for the man's family
unless he was sent to the Bridewell.
Alter hearing evidence to the effect
that Bickham was kind to his family,
etc., Judge Hopkins said he saw no
reason for sending Bickham to the
Bridewell. "The man goes back on
probation," snapped the judge. And
hence the old game of insisting that
the father be sent to the Bridewell
before the U. S. will do anything for
the family was slapped in the face.

Some day Poor Dad and 01' St Nick

Their stockings hold a treat
But poor oP Dad say, this is sad,
His two socks hold but feet
P. S. We're for the kiddies any
way, even if Dad goes broke.
