Gloria's story makes the term "child welfare'* seem a grim jest. She is the living exemplification of the biblical assurance that sins of the fathers descend unto the children. For her father, and her mother, an 1 murderers. The man, James O'Dell, is under sentence to 1* executed in New York state. The woman, Pearl O'Dell, is serving a term of 20 years' imprisonment. They snuffed out a human life unaer circum stances of singular atrocity. It was the life of a former admirer of Mrs. 0 Dell, who, she said, had sought to resume their former relations after she married his rival. To a tree they tied him, and while Mrs. O'Dell danced frenziedly before the bloody scene her husband beat and hacked their victim into eternity. And so the sentences—death for the man, 20 years for the woman. ♦ • ♦ XTONE RISES TO SAY that justice, as the law sees it, has not been done in their case. But a new factor has entered, a factor that man made laws did not foresee in all its iu>pects. This factor is Baby Gloria, bom since* the ODells, were sentenced —l>orn outside of prison walls only thru the mercy of a newly enacted law, but now being reared behind steel bars. Even tho the father —and the mother, too—have sacrificed their right to -ordinary human considera tion, THE CHILD IS INNOCENT. Baby Gloria has a right to live, to be happy, to be unsmirched. The crime is in the past; the baby's life is in the future. It now must become the first consideration of justice. The baby should not be brought up behind prison walls. The law says that at the age of two years it must be taken from its mother and placed outside —if the mother be still a prisoner. But Baby Gloria O'Dell, like every other baby, has the right to mother love, to mother care and mother guidance. * * * TVyfOTHERHOOD, according to all reports, has wrought a great change in Pearl O'Dell. Her life is no longer her own or the state's—it is her baby's. Justice for Baby Gloria rests in the hands of Gov ernor Nathan L. Miller of New York. His is the power to give Baby Gloria a fair start in life; to open the prison gates to the child and the mother; to place proper safeguards around both thru the state parole system. We believe that a proper consideration for the welfare of innocent little Gloria, and a proper appre ciation of the respeCT due to motherhood, should prompt Governor Miller to take this course. Paying Their Debts THEY'RE pulling out of debt! Who? The hoi-rowing individuals, communities, states and sections of what is called the "Great Interior." They are getting on their financial feet, which is to say, they a«e headed upward and onward again. Good news! Of cours*! And here's the proof: Last October only three of the federal reserve hanks were in the "lending" class. These were Cleveland. Phila delphia and Boston. The other eight were then "borrow ing" money of the three. These interbank rediscounts reached the peak at the end of October, when the total wsfc $217.000,000. All the agricultural sections of the country were in fhe "borrowing" class. The nation viewed with alarm the rising clouds of increased interbank rediscounts. Then it was that the decision to contract loans was made—and enforced. With what result? Interbank rediscounts (frozen credits, largely) dropped to less than $20,000,000 by February 1L This is one twelfth of what the debt was last fall. Take Atlanta, to start with. Atlanta in October had called upon the other federal reserve hanks for $36,122,000. By December 3 this was increased to more than 41 million. Then that district began liquidating its debts. On Febru ary 11 Atlanta owed but $5,115,000. Minneapolis bank did even better. It reduced its inter bank debt from more than 2fi million to less than ONE million. Richmond entirely wiped out its debt, which was over $14,000,000 October 29. Dallas reduced from more than 32 millions of debts to less than 14 millions. Kansas City did the "impossible" by reducing a debt of $44,895,000 in Octol>er to not-a-cent in February. This country has never witnessed a more wonderful ability to pay debts than it has in the last four months. And, business experience proves it true, when a man, or collection of men, are able to pay their dehts so promptly, they are in pretty good shape to tackle any post-panic problems that may arise.
