NEW YORK WOMEN ORGANIZE ANTI-FANATIC LEAGUE TO REFORM REFORMERS
the Blue From
the Blue Laws
By MARGARET ROIIE.
You busy old reformers,
Reforming all about.
The A. F. League will get you
If you don’t watch out.

NEW YORK, June 24.—Whoopee!
' The worm has turned.
Os course it is the female worm.
The male of the species, all bound
round with blue laws and repressions
"like a cocoon, has never budged. The
ladies, though, all have their dander
up. They are just naturally sick and
tired of being told they can’t do this
end they mustn’t do that.
It was had /enough when the cock
tail was pronounced forbidden fruit,
but since a poor flapper-grandmother
can no longer eYen take a wee puff
or two of a cigarette in public, except
behind a smoke screen, it’s time she
was getting all smoked up about it.
Then when employers put a ban on
bobbed hair it surely was cutting it
a bit too fine, and now that the
gan mayor has vetoed the female
knickerbockers —well, the women are
just panting for revenge.
This situation is the answer to the
Anti-Fanatic League of Women which
has just sprung into being and full
fledged activity in New York State.
The members are agin’ all proses
Eional uplifters. reformers, kill joys,
fanatics and censors in toto. ad fini
tum, and then some.
Nliss Belle Norton, honest to good
less, gun-toting deputy sheriff of New
York County, is the leader of this
6turdy female band.
” She hopes to lead them on till not
a single little reformer is left to men
ace the healthy personal freedom of
our American people.
The A. F. Leaguers are all pledged
to do their darndest to force repeal
of all the repressive laws already put
over and to defeat all the little indigo
hued joy-killers anyone may en
deavor to foist on us hereafter.
Just why is a reformer anyway?
We really have never been able to
find out, but what he is, in the last
analysis (and, of course, that's psy
choanalysis) is perfectly clear—and
also perfectly awfuL
According to the very best psycho
analysis authorities, a reformer is a
neurasthenic nuisance. He usually
has the weakness of indulging to ex
cess in something which to a regular
human being would be classed as a
Eimple and normal pleasure—if you
see what I mean.
Consequently it makes him per
fectly miserable to see other folks
enjoying in moderation what, as
practiced by him, would amount to
In order to remove all temptation
from his own path, and at the same
time keep other people from being
happy when he can’t, he agitates for
laws forbidding said simple pleasure
as a pernicious vice. And there you
are. Rather neat, what?
Now that we have the low-down
on the reformer, and it Is certainly
low, the A. F. League is confident
the public no longer will sit back and
’ lei the censors tell them they can’t
design their own hair cuts, look on
wine or meat when it’s red, or play
ball or go'.f on Sunday.
The leaguers contend blue laws and
red blood just naturally won't mix

The ADVENTURES of
& Raggedy Raggedy
Ann and Andy
By JOHNNY ORUELLE
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy and
Mister Minky, the little old man who had
found the Wishing Pebble where Rag
gedy Ann had burled it lay sound
asleep at the side of the Apple Butter
bog. They had eaten so much bread and
butter with apple butter spread upon it
they had gone to sleep.
Presently Raggedy Ann awakened and
sat up very quietly so as not to disturb
Raggedy Andy and Mister Minky. “Well,
well, well,” Ann thought to
herself. “Herew we are all sleeping
soundly side by side. It doesn’t seem as
though Mister Minky was the mean lit
tle old stingy man who has been causing
Raggedy Andy and me so much trouble
lately. First when I found the wishing
pebble and wished for the nice things
for the Muskrats and the other little
creatures of the great yellow meadow, 1
did not really know that it was a
wishing pebble and I buried it in the
sand. Then Mister Minky, who was a
very selfish little old man then, saw
where I hid the wishing pebble and dug
•• ■ ■ .
it up. Then when he couldn’t jnake his
wishes come true with the wishing peb
ble, he thought that I had made my
wishes come true because I had a candy
heart, and ever since then he has been
trying to get my candy heart and eat it.
Now we are good friends and it seems
so nice not to have him chasing us all
over trying always to get my candy
heart. Not that I care for my candy
heart so much,” thought Raggedy Ann,
“but I know it would not make his
wishes come true even if he did eat it.”
“Eeeyaw,” yawned Mister Minky as he
sat up and rubbed his eyes. “Well I
must hurry and catch Raggedy Ann and
eat her candy heart so that I can make
my wishes come true." Then seeing Rad
gedy Ann sitting in front of him and
Raggedy Andy lying sound asleep be
side him, Mister Minky remembered that
he was now good friends with the two
Raggedys. “I wasn’t quite awake yet.
Raggedy Ann," he said. “Please excuse
me,” “Tes indeed. “Raggedy Ann
laughed," I'm very glad that we are good
friends now, Mister Minky, for if we
were not, Raggedy Andy and I would
have to get up and run.”
“I'm sorry that I chased yon so much
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy,” said
Minky as Raggedy Andy sat up and
rubbed the sand out of his shoe button
eyes. “Well," said Raggedy Andy,
“maybe we can make np for all the fun
you missed by having a lot more fun."
“Maybe we can," Mister Minky re
plied “I wonder where Missus Witchie
and the Policeman are by this time."
“Oh. I guess they reached home long
ago," said Raggedy Ann. "I wander if
Missus Witchie is worried because she
left her Magical Buttons laying upon
the ground? Yon know," Raggedy Ann
said to Mister Minky, “Raggedy Andy
and I jumped out of the balloon so that
we could run back and find the magical
buttons. We left Missus Witchie sit
ting in the bottom of the balloon basket
“Well, I have Missus Witchie’s Magical
Butttons safe In my pocket," said Minky,
“and I would like to go with you to
Missus Witchie's house and give them
back to her. Maybe when she knows
that I am not going to chase you to get
yonr candy heart ah* will be friends
with me, too.”
“I’m snrs she win be friends with you.
Mister Minky,” said Raggedy Ann. “for
Mlesua Witchie Is friendly to every one.
She couldn't be otherwise with such a
: wonderful kindly heart as she has,”
“Then,” said Mister Minky, “let’s hurry
j to her house and maybe she will change
1 things so that they will taste good to
me Instead of bitter.”
“Did the ice cream soda water taste
bitter to you, Mister Minky ?’” asked
Raggedy Andy. “Indeed it did," Mister
Minky replied as he puckered up his
mouth. “Why, 1 never tasted anything
io bitter Id all my life unlws it wasUie
magic Rookies in the cookie field. They
were very bitter, too.”
"And the bread and butter and apple
butler; did it taste bitter to you?" Rag
gedy Andy wishes to know.
"It was so good I could eat twenty
slices right now," Mister Minky replied.
“Do you know what I believe?" asked
“No. what?” Minky and Raggedy Andy
asked in reply.
“f believe that Mister Minky has
changed clear down to his shoe boots
and that from now on. unless he changes
back into a selfish person, he will enjoy
eating the cookies and ice cream sodas."
“Do you really think so, Raggedy
Ann?" Minky asked, his eyes filling with
tears and his mouth watering at the
thought. “Oh, I hope It Is true, for I
have wanted some ice cream soda watet
for almost two weeks."
“Then let's hurry over to the soda
water tree and have some,” said Raggedy
Ann as she jumped to her feet and
Raggedy Ann was the first to reach
the soda water tree and had a glass
of raspberry flavor all ready for Mlstet
Minky when he reached h'>r.
“How is that. Mister Minky?" Rag
gedy Ann wished to know. Mister Minky
didn't try to talk. The soda water tasted
so good he could only blink his eyes.
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy each
bad five glasses and Mister Minky fid
sixteen because he was a little larger
than the Raggedy's and then he had not
bad any soda water for two weeks and
he was very thirsty.
"Now," said Raggedy Ann when they
had all the sodas they could drink, "let's
hurry and find Missus Witchie and re
turn her magical button*, for she may
be worrying. But we will stop on the
wny and eat some of the lovely cookies
with all kinds of different flavored icing

A sodden outbreak of a certain dis
ease aways attracts scientific atten
tion, as did a small epidemic of trichi
nosis, a rather rare disease in this
country, in New Jersey recently.
Trichinosis is caused by organisms
In the form of small round worms,
barely visible to the eye, which occur
In cysts, or membraneous pouches, in
the muscles of Infected meat-eating
animals, generally the hog. the rat
and man. They are known to remain
alive, thoi gh Inactive, in the hog for
at least 11 years. When the raw or
imperfectly-cooked meat from such
an animal is eaten, the worms are lib
erated during the process of digestion,
grow and multiply In the intestine and
the young worms or larvae then bore
the!.- way Into the blood stream and
flnaly into the muscles of the new
host. Here they gradually become
encysted and remain until they die or
are, in turn, liberated, as before.
The degree of illness is thought to
vary with the number of living tri
china eaten. The number of worm
larvae in a pound of infected pork has
been estimated as high as 500,000.
Thorough cooking of the infected
meat kills the larvae. The disease is,
therefore, confined. In most cases, to
those of nationalities which eat pork
raw or only slighty cooked.
The epidemic of this disease re
ferred, to numbered 34 cases. Inves
tigation proved conclusively that the
source of the epidemic was an infec
ted hog which had been slaughtered
recently, a part of the meat having
been eaten as sausage.
