Nevada Receives Roast From Eastern Weekly "America," a weekly paper published in New York City, waxes exceeding wroth over the Mary Piekford case. In an editorial boil over entitled "Cellu loid Love," the editor runs the gamut of villification and ridicule. Here is his article: "When the state of Nevada under takes to investigate a divorce and sub sequent attempt at remarriage, it is plain that there is something rotten in the state of Nevada. For of all the pest-holes that are making this country a scandal in the eyes of civilized na tions, Nevada is the most open and the most disgusting. South Carolina grants no divorces, whatever be the cause al leged. New York has, in theory, a rig orous procedure. But Nevada severs collusion, fraud, and bigamy; they may find the alleged culprit more pure than the driven snow. But the decent, self respecting man who occasionally takes his family to the neighborhood moving picture theater need not remain alto gether silent in face of this public scan dal. He may even deem himself called upon to make his disapprobation felt in a very practical manner. Had this pair engaged in systematic shop-lifting, their value to the film producer would be pre cisely nothing. Had they plotted to set fire to an orphan asylum, their names would be in execration. But they have done neither of these things. They have only sought the guarantee of a law which tends to destroy the sancity of the marriage bond, and that respect for Candidates Withdraw By United Press! MEXICO CITY, April 29.

Nevada is free to do all this if she wishes. Nothing can change her, except a higher sense, almost ap proaching the elemental, of morality. But no decent person is forced to take advantage of this public incitement to immorality. No decent person will. "Two individuals, stars of the flick ering screen, have of late caused the state of Nevada, lowly as is its moral standard, to begin an investigation. No one is called on to assign final doom to these individuals, or to anticipate the .findings in the case. They may indicate cot a Vice-President of A. F. of L.

"The favor or disapprobation which they will now receive will register the moral health of the American people who in former days gladly contributed to the enlargement of their bank ac counts. Perhaps history will repeat it self. There was a popular film star who, a few years ago, threw off the mother of his children to engage with another love. He no longer flickers on a thousand reels, but amuses a small section of a stock company in a western town. Even from a financial stand point which such creatures can envision, successive polygamy did not pay." By United Tress ATLANTIC CITY, April 29. Mat thew Woll. vice-president of the Ameri can Federation of Lalor, was forced to discontinue his speech before the Unit- and the cries of delegates.

At last after a spring nap Carson High has awakened athletically with a startled expression. Everyone and everything in the school seems to have suddenly come to life and all are full of pep.. Why, yesterdty, it would have done a person good just to look upon the lot back of the Harrington home. That lot was literally covered with live ly boys and girls, each doing some ath letic stunt; some playing tennis, others vaulting,' still others throwing disks, running rtces, javelin throwing, any and everything which helps to develop the muscles and make them strong. Talk about the proper spirit! When it comes to that, Carson High is right there. He is working this week on his school work and expects to continue his studies in Truckee. He will then still be con sidered a member of the Senior class and will be back to Carson for Com mencement Week. Senior Play The Seniors are now being kept very busy studying their parts for the play, since they have chosen the one desired. Every member of the cast has received his or her part and each is industrious ly studying it. Due to the absence of the coach, Mr. Richards, there will be little rehearsing this week. But next week and the weeks before school is out there will be a great deal of rehearsing, and it is hoped that with the proper spirit and earnest study the play will be a great success.

According to this es timate Wood would receive twenty-two of the twenty-four district delegates, two of the delegates at large pledged to him and two other delegates at large, who announced they would support the winner of preferential vote. Johnson's headquarters announced that with 100 precincts missing General Wood was leading by 200 votes in New Jersey. Off for Truckee -" C H. S., and -especially the Senior class, received a sad blow a few days ago when it was announced that Dwight Edwards would be forced to leave High as be had been transferred to Truckee by the Standard Oil company. His po sition in that town will be an advance over the one he is holding with that company in this city. A Treat In Hand It is reported about the school that Dr. Wedge in the employ of the U.

Maps have been issued by the San Francisco offices of the Western Army department showing the route through . California and Nevada that has ln selected for the army transport service. And. strange as it may appear, the route selected is over the Overland trail. Plncerville, Carson, Fallon and Ely have all been left out, but standing out in bold face type along the route are the names of the towns of Auburn, Reno, Winnemucca, Elko and so on to Salt Lake City. How the selection of this route, which, by no means is the best across Nevada, was accomplished is yet a rid dle, but to all intents and purposes it has been done. It suggests, however, that some of the Lincoln Highway 1 authorities have been asleep at the post.
