After 73 days of the moat intensified
search ever made for a single human \
being ohe long trail has ended in
death for the infant son of Charles
r.ad Anne Lindbergh. The tragedy !
that so many had feared would be the
end has become a realty as the world j
stands aghast at the brutish, beastial
crime comm filed by those who have
sunk. qQ( to the bottom df oociey but
•ven below tihat level.
No parents ever had the measure of
gymparhy extended to them that has
poured out for the Lindberglhs since
that winter night last March 1 when
the world was stunned when told that
the shmy band of the underworld had
been thrust into the home of a happy,
contented couple and the darling of
their fireside snatched from its crib
and from them, never to be seen alive
again That sympathy flows in a
still greater tide today than when the
child was taken, for until now there
bad been some hope that he would be i
restored ahve to loving amis. Many j
a morhers beait aches today and
livers at tears have been shed as cour
ageous souls have shuddered in the
last two days in the thought that it
might have heen their own flesh and
Wood The sad news and the tragedy
about it is that none of these things
can bring back the toddfcng youngster ]
whose brown curly hair and eager !
smile had endeared him to his noted
father and mother.
Life never wdl again be the same
foj the fatuous couple. This blight
will scar upon their future
that not even time con erase. Hearts
have been broken in a grief that never
caa be entirety assuaged. The fame
and d>e wealufi that had been com
bined in rbw home to assure a career
as brilliant perhaps as that of any
American reonai.ts, but it has been
•eared by this tragedy.
One is prone lo ask why it must be.
How can any creature known as a
human being stoop so low? What is
$30,000. or a hundred thousand or
even a million dollars by comparison
with tha hellish deeds perpetrated by
These fiends of humanity? It is in
conceivable that the lust for gold
could lure any man or woman to the
point of such & crime. It is a deed
comparable only to the savage and
the cannibal, yet done here in civilized
America! Caa w“ boast that we have
come this side the ape man so long
as we tolerate these things, and so
kmy as we are yet so impotent that
efcey can be d r ne and gotten away
AH sorts of theories and specula
tions have cropped out since the find
ing of the dead body, and with the
evidence that the baby was probably
murdered rhe aoih night he was stolen
or not more thin a few days after :
wards Spite hrs been suggested, but
who could hold a grudge against edttoer
at the Lindberghs? If money ware
the goal, it coukl liave been had with
out murder, and was had without the
return of the baby- The child was 111
a hen taken and may have died of
exposure, but. if so, why the biowdl
and the bruises on the little body? It
looks like a case of cold feet and fear
cf detection if tt# bahy wera kepi
•liv*. with eol4-hJoqd«d murdst a« tha
Os course, the seared* for the ertan*-
nato will now b« intensified. All the
dogs of war in the police services of
the nation will be l«t looae with huh
a single aim and purpose. They can
work without the fear that harm will
befall the Utile victim if the trail
should become hot. a consideration
that has held in leash the forces of
the law until now. All hands have
right of way at last, and there la tha
oocmdeicwt ireeaam of action.
And there should be a double motive
In the intensified manhunt. These
criminals must be both brought to
justice and made an example of.
Moreover, this American civilization
must see to it that its citizens, espe
cially Its children, are safeg-u&rdfcd
from occurrences of this kind in the
future. As terrible, as horrible, as
i heart-rendering as this affair is. it
, will n ot be wholly an unmrixed evil if
j it shall so arouse the people at the
United States that they will rise in
I their might to Ramp out the crime of
i kidnaping from their borders.
| With the Lindbergh baby probably !
j killed the mght it was stolen, the fa- J
owit Al Capone, gang lord of Chi- j
cago until recen-Uy. sought only a few
weeks ago to obtain his freedom, even
if for but a short while, by promises
that he could effect the return of
ihe child if allowed to leave his jail
cell. How seriously, if seriously at
all. his appeal was considered, the pub- j
lie has not learned, but What a hypo- l
crite developments have shown him to '
Capone could not have returned the
baby had he been given his freedom
absolutely and permanently. And
he knew it. But he tried the gome
of preying upon the anxious fears of
a nation to gain his own ends. It
shows him up in his true light and
reveals him as the sneak that he is.
Doubtless he is guilty of crimes as i
heinous as this one, except that little
• children were not so directly involved.
' aad nobody knows but that he would
i t have stooped even at that if serv-
I ing his own heTlsh ends. No. he
j could not have restored the baby, of
f course he couldn't. He was trying to
■ ‘ropreoß the nation with the power that
he wielded, and to show himself up
as being an oveilord of gangland and
the underworld. Well, the nation
knows what he is without any effort
on his part to help it to understand.
Books may come and books may go.
but never has any book even remotely
approximated the Bible in aalee or cir
culation. More than that, despite the
slurs and jokes about how little it is
tead, it is probable that the book is
searched more, in the aggregate, than
any other is today dr ever bps been.
No other volume, pamphlet or folder
i ever written or published has afforded
j ihe solace and comfort to anything
! like the number of people Who have
been helped by the Bible. And that
<>ue#*t to be an answer to the skeptic
and the infidel.
At rhe H®th rnnual meeting of the
American Bible Society in New York
fist Thursday, it was reported that in
! 1832 a total of 9.743.356 volumes of
the Scriptures, issued by that organi
sation alone, were made last year.
These figures bring the society's Scrip
ture publications in the U 6 years of
its history up to 237.979,404 volumes.
What other book can compete with
such a record?
In Japan there was the most notable
increase in distribution, where prints
of the gospels and other portions of
the Bible rose from 700,000 to more
than a mi then volumes In China,
where floods and bandits tormented
the people, they found solace in the
Bible and sales there increased 58
percent above 1930.
The Near East is another quarter of
the globe where, despite edonoowc
difficulties, the sale of the Bible in
creased Avai-ply. It was notable in
the region about the ancient city of
Thessakmica, known in modern times
as SaJoniki. Sales were nearly twioe
as large in the West Indies as in 1930
and distribution held up welt in Lgttin-
America. From Brazil came the word
that no particular effort was made to
increase demands for the Scriptures.
in view of the fact that the normal
requirements could barely be met. In
Yucatan, one of the peninsula states
in old Mexico, a distributor of 4{ie
Bible visited a ckuirc.h where two yearn
before he had boen persecuted, and
found t bat his worst enemies had be
come members of the church-
From parts of the United Skates
name unprecedented demands for
Bibles, the society was told, ao much
so that not all of the calls could be
met. In veterans’ hospitals the Bible
was the book moat in demand, and
elsewhere the institutional require
ments were met only by special ef
During the year, the Scriptures were
translated and printed for the first
time in two languages in Siam, and
for the first time in an Indian dialect
in Gu*tew*>«- J'frw ware
made available also In some other
parts of the w'irkt for the first time
Another interesting fact was that
last year the number of volumes of the
Bible printed ia Bniaile for the use of
She blind was forty percent greater
than in any other year of tha 97 in
whWh special prints for the blind have
been issued. At that, the supply feN

They may not be reading it as much
gs they should, but the people cer
tainly seem bo be anxious not to be
without a copy cf the great Book of
books. It Is not merely for the curto
sttfy of reading, but for tbe benefits
that are derived. For poetry, literature
and marvelous expression of meaning,
the Bible Is without a peer in any lan
guage. to soy nothing of and aside
from its rehtftoue value. It continues
the world's best seller, as H has al

Dec. 31, 1930, amounted to $3,810,681.-
763; the aggregate revenue receipts
were $3,418,502,995; and the total net
indebtedness was $6,857,239,759.
The total government 1-coat pay
ments of the cities were 66-4 per cent
greater than similar payments of the
government of the 48 states, and 2.8
per cent greater than those for the
Federal Government for the fiscal
year 1930.
The payments for operation and
maintenance of the general depart
ments of the city governments of the
310 cities for the fiscal period 1930
amounted to $2,112,198,973 or $44 53
per capita. In 1929 the per capita for
operation and maintenance of general
| departments was $4368. and in 1917,

! 109.735; interest on debt, $406,152,731;
and outlays for permanent improve

made from current revenues or from
the proceeds of bond issues.
I Os the 310 cities covered by this re
port only seven were lacking In re
venues sufficient to meet all operai
iug expenses and interest, while 106
! realized enough revenues to meet all
1 thir payments for expeoss, intresi,
and outlays and to have a balance
available for paying debt.
CM the total governmental-coat pay
meats in 1939, 55.4 per cent was for
j operation and maintenance of general

for permanent improvements, the
principal items were $427,526,121, or
38.3 per cent, for highways; S2OO
- 254x175, or 18 per cent, for education,
! and $227,480,020, or 20.4 per cent, for
public servicee enterprises.
The total revenue receipts of the
310 cities for 1930 were $3,418,502,990
or $72.07 per capita. This was $723,-
041,556 more than the total payments
; of the year exclusive of the payments
: for permanent improvements but
$392,178,768 less than the total pay
! ments including those for permanent

Proceeds from the Issuance of debt
obligations are not considered revenue
The per capita net revenue leceipta
of 146 cities covered by the various
census reports were $73 32 In 1930,
$6963 in 1929, $31.79 in 1917, and $21.-
