More interest is manifested in the
contests for judge and chancellor as
well as in the race for the supreme
court Judge in the southern district
at Mississippi than haB ever been
jtnown since the judges were made e
lective by the people.
There is .only one supreme court
Judge to be elected this year,vJudge
Cook, of the southern district, who is
a candidate not only for the unex
pired term, but for a full elective
term of eight years lftginning May
10, 11024. While a supreme court
judge is nominated and elected for
and from one of the three supreme
court districts of Mississippi, when
be takes the oath and ascends (he

tential to effect the life, liberty and
property of every human being in
Por this reason, interest of the en
tire state attaches to the result of
the primary in the southern district,
auu ima iiuejeai is nut connnen iu
the bar, but to liitlgants and people
generally. The incumbent, Judge
Cook, is opposed by Representative
Lane of Smith county and chairman
of the house of the powerful commit
tee on insurance by appointment of
Speaker Conner. He was one of the
most active members of the legisla
ture, having been named on very im
portant conference committee also
by Speaker Conner.
Lane ie energetically engaged in
his campaign. v
Judge Cook, who could not tfegln
to campaign until the supreme court
adjourned on July 10# is reported
as speaking in as many places as it
is possible before-the primary.
II. .
There is more than district-wide
interest, also, in the race for circuit
judge in the various districts of
the state, as well as that for chan
cellor. This interest results from
the fact that judges and chancellors
exchange court holdings, at which
time it is possible for many judges
and chancellors to sit upon the life,
liberty and property of the men and
women who had no ^roice in their
nomination or election, and for that
reason, the people seem to be im
bued with the hope that the very
best men for these positions— men
disassociated from and unsupported
by trusts and combines—w}ll be nom
inated in every district in Mississip
pi. And above all things, no man
who drinks white mule, or consorts
with the drinkers of vendors of white
mule Bhould be allowed to disgrace
the judicial ermine.
The supreme court of. Mississippi
has six members. Where the court
is evenly divided in any case, the
decision of a circuit judge or chan
cellor is sustained, making him prac
tically a member of tb«U court. In
other words it takes an affirmative
vole of four of the six members of
the supreme court of Mississippi to
reverse on opinion of a circuit judge
or chancellor. For this and abvious
other reasons members of the bar in
each of the 17 circuit court districts
of the state aB well as in the 10 chan
cery court districts are expressing
the earnest desire that the very ab
lest legal talent that is offering for
circuit judges and chancellors will

pie when they come to cast their
primary ballots on August 15.
Visitors to the capital from all
parts of the state report that in many
of the'districts for circuit judge and
chancellor, as well as in the south
ern district, where the race is be
tween Judge Cook and Repiesenta
tlve Lane, that the paramount issue
is trusts and combines. This issue
seems also to be a piegnant one in
the race for United Stales senator,
and for congress in those districts
wnere the incumbent congressmen
have opposition, and in the sixth dis
tiict wneie the race is between Jeff
CollinB and Webber Wilson.
It is being said everywhere that
the people" aie on trial. The people
by their votes, took the appoint
ments of judges and chancellors
out of the hands of the governor, and
piade them elective by their own
votes. The argument was that this
was a government of, by and for the
people; and that no governor, whe
ther influenced fey trusts and com
bines or corporate interests or not—
should be allowed to name judges
who sit upon the life, liberty and
property of all the people. It was
pointed out that there yere three co
ordinate branches of the govern
ment—executive, judicial and legis
lative; and that the Judges should
receive their commissions from the
same source that governors and leg

The Playground and Recreation
Association of America recently is
med a statement claiming that Juve
aije delinquency all over the nation
is disappearing as the result of play
ground work. The kids Whose minds
have been turned in the direction
at athletic sports and competitions,
are not going to seek an outlet in
gang raids and law breaking.
If you can hold these youngsters
until they are close to manhood, they
are never likely to be lawless. Arm
ing citizens to deal with burglars
and bandits may temporarily check
the crime spirit but it does not wipe
It out. The only way to get ahead
of it permanently Is to destroy law
lessness among growing boys. Play
grounds are the greatest force work
ing in this country toward that end.
And Brookhaven has the playgrounds
and the sports where the boy and |
the girl can express themselves In
wholesome happy sport, and exhaust
their exuberance of spirit and their
prowess and ambition to exploit
inemwiveB ill (tauiea aiiu wuioijw.
In last. Sunday's Messenger, Pas
tor Lewis said:
There probably was never a time
or place In this world when or where
It was not a problem to rear child
ren. This is true even in a home
where parents are God fearing and
who have high* Christian Ideals. It
is tragic for children to come into
a home and pass through the home
training period, where the parents
neither fear God nor regard man.
Of towns or cities, Brookhaven
may justly be considered as a place
which offers a more favorable place
to train boys and girls in ways of
right conduct and high character
than most other places. At the pres
ent day we have advantages not
enjoyed by parents a generation ago.
We have eliminated the open sa
loon with its temptations and blight
ing effects and dangers. The home
dances and public ball room do not
entice and demoralize our young peo
ple as they formerly did. It is be
lieved that profanity and indecent
stories are not so common as they
once were.
Besides these facts, which we may
call the negative phase, we have in
creased positive advantages. We
have a better and more complete sys
tem of public school education. Hence
less ignorance and more enlighten
ment. The church is reaching more
people with its improved and varied
service. Our ministers are better ed
ucated. We have more frequent op
portunities of hearing the Gospel.
The Sunday Schools are far more effi
cient, and more nearly a hundred per
cent of all the people attend the
Sabbath schools. Other church so
cieties »and influences are at work
which do much good to the young
and to society which were formerly
not known or used.
And, we may add there is a whole
some public sentiment growing that
commends and upholds the strong,
vigorous, upright youth who fearless
ly follows a high standard of mor
als. He is the sort of man, business
men want in their offices and stores
and parents want for sons-in-law.
The only way to cure crime at its
source is to bring the right influences

The Leader has had embarrassing
experiences of the sort noted in the
appended article taken from the
Hammond Vindicator..
Readers(?) have sent in or
brouKht to this office articles care
fully clipped that they wanted pub
lished, when the fact was, they had
already been published in the paper.
Again, friends have given us news
items that were no news at all for
the simple reason, they had already
been given our readers.
A wedding written up, a funeral
account, etc., after publicity had
been already given are among the
surprising requests made by read
ers who really don't read or "over
look." .
Now here is how the Vindicator
refers to a similar experience
Oscar Donaldson reads the Vindi
cator on the installment plan. He
made about four trips to this office
during the past week to read certain
articles overlooked. A lady dropped
in the store the other day and asked
Oscar if he read so and so in the
Vindicator. He had not. In a few
moments Oscar was down this way
looking the paper over. The next day
a gentleman dopped in the store
and inquired if Oscar had noticed a
certain article in. the Vindicator.
Once again he had to exolalm that
he overlooked it. A second trip to
this office was then made. The two
following days the san e questions
were put to him and finally he came
down and spent an hour reading last
week’s paper. Hereafter Oscar will
look the paper over carefully before
passing it up.
Everything rushes these days and
so the reader rapidly scans his pa
per and misses what he most desires
to see. Read carefully.

Tylertown, Miss., July 29.—More
! than 5,000 people yesterday attended,
the picnic and political rally here,
and were treated to a deluge of
political oratory such as is seldom
heard in one day, candidates for ev
ery district office being present or
being represented. All business hous
es of the town were closed at 11
o'clock for the remainder of the day,
and the entire town and surrounding
country, as well as large crowds from
the neighboring towns and counties
turned out for the festivities of the
B. F. Moak, master of ceremonies,
presented the speakers, the first be
ing A. A. Cohn of Brookhaven, who
appeared in the interests of James K.
Vardaman for senator. He was fol
lowed by the speaker of the day, for
mer governor Bilbo, who delivered
an address along nonpolitical lines.
Thomas Mitchell of Magnolia ap
peared in the interest of the candi
dacy of Hon. E. J. Simmons for cir
cuit judge and was followed by Judge
D. M. Miller, candidate for re-elec
tion to that office. W. B. Mixon and
Judge R. W. Cutrer, candidates for
chancery judge addressed the crowd
and were followed by Judge W. H.
Cooke of Hattleshurar. candidate for
supreme court judge.
Those speakers arousing the great
est interest were Hugh V. Wall and
Percy E. Quin, candidates for Con
gress, who engaged in a joint de
bate which at stages grew heated
and acrimonious. Both candidates
were cheered by their followers.
Music for the occasion was pro
vided by the Mississippi Industrial
Institute Band of Columbia, while an
airplane' with spectacular stunt per
formances entertained the crowd in
the afternoon.
An event of the day was a baseball

> How The Master Driver
Became Master Tire Builder
IN 1903, driving the “999” racing
car, Barney Oldfield started his
career of victories that later
- earned him the title of “Master
Driver of The World.” To over
come the tire weaknesses that made
racing difficult and dangerous, he
studied tires—specified materials—
supervised construction.
Today, Barney Oldfield is known
as the “Master Tire Builder.”
Starting with the crude tires which
carried the “999” one mile in sixty
seconds, Oldfield gradually de
veloped his famous Cords—a set of
which covered 500 miles at eighty
eight miles an hour without a
In three years Oldfield tires have
won every important race on Amer
ican speedways. They are the only
American tires that have ever taken
first place in the French Grand Prix.
They have won for three consecu
tive years in the 500-iriHe Indian
apolis Sweepstakes. So far in 1922,
Oldfields have lowered four World’s
Records and seven track records.
The Wichita Test Run gave evi
dence of Oldfield superiority in tour

winter roads—a performance at
tested by the Mayor of Wichita.

experience. Their performance will

Drilling to Begin Soon.
Dr. Fletcher Fletchinger, Super
intendent of the Choctaw Oil Well
Company, was here last week and
advised that the drilling outfit Is in
transit and that drilling operations
will really take place by the 28th of
the month.
The doctor also said the minds of
quite a good number of the people
in the county had been poisoned by
the false report of some pessimist
that the company did not have suffl
cient funds with which to carry on
drilling operations. Such a report
should not, of course, be circulated
and on the other hand every fellow
should look forward with anticipa
