RETURN OF WHIPPING POST, SEPARATION OF POLICE FROM POLITICS, URGED BY CHIEF St. Louis Criminal Expert Advises Abandoning Kid Glove Metnods Would Save Young People First. St. Louis, Angust 4. The " return of the public whipping post as a crime preventive i3 advocated by Victor J. Miller, president of the St. Louis Po lice Board. "Handling criminals with kid gloves is not a successful method," declares Miller in his contention for fne bring ing back of the drastic erstwhile "pun ishment stile." "We cannot accord criminals the same treatment as we would a gentle man, says Miller. "I know the whipping post is illegal,' but it would be of great benefit in many instances it it could be used. Many criminals do not care particularly about jail or even prison terms, but if a big police man takes them into an alley and gives them a good beating it does much to keep them straight for a while. "Our St. Louis holdover has the softiest planks in the world and the man who gets in them always says he was put there for doing nothing, not thinking that if he did do something he could keep out." Criminals would rather loaf in Jail than work. Miller asserts. Partisan politics works to the detri ment of police departments in the larger cities of America, declares Mr. Miller in a sweeping denunciation of partisianship. "When voters back a man." he said, 'they should back him because be is capable of serving efficiently not be cause he wears the label of a party. I am a Republican, but I don t know why. But I forget party in doing my duty and there is no set of politicians telling us how to run our department. Politics Barred. "St. Louis has the most efficient police department in America. It is far the reason that we don't have a gang of political pets serving on the force and giving protection to a bunch of lounge lizard law violators. We run the department as -a business organization. Graft seldom slips in and when we find graft we Immedi ately eliminate it. Soft drink bars are not selling booze here under police protection while politicians collect money from .them. Reciting how crime has been re duced in St. Louis, Miller declared that booze will continue to be sold in soft drink bars withoutv knowledge of the police. It would take 10,000 po licemen to enforce prohibition in this city alone, he said, adding that he does not "suppose prohibition will be effectually enforced until the taste or desire of liquor dies out. "Kight now," Miller stated, "we are devoting our time to the stopping of crime. That is not going far enough. Thought should be given to crime pre vention. When we get to the source of the crime the problem is solved. We are trying to make it so hot for everybody having any part in crime that there will be no ambition to en gage in the business. When crimi nals see they are not going to get away with their nefarious work they'll quit. 1 Gid-Glove Methods Scored. - "I believe in discouraging younger criminals. .Kid-glove methods won't do that. Some social uplift clubs have a perverted idea about going easy, but the only way to reform a criminal is with a shotgun or a public whipping post. , Criminals would have a horror of the whipping post and drastic as such punishment may seem, it would be less costly in the long run, all angles considered. "Immorality and crime work to gether. Eliminate the one and you're rid of the, other. People say it is im possible to eradicate certain vices that they are necessary. That is not true. The social evil can be eliminated. If it cannot then civilization has been a failure. Statistics show that 65 per cent, of the lunatics of the country are so because of one great form of this eviL I shall always protest against it, regardless of the politicians who protect vice or crime. I am to be three and a half more years in office and I shall keep up my work. There is nothing that can deter me. When I quit this thankless job I'd rather go back to my father and mother and say I'd saved one hundred boys and girls than that I had made myself popular by pleasing the petty politi cians. GOME, READER, LET'S TREK AROUND THE GOLF COURSE WITH PRESIDENT HARDING Chief Executive An Odd Manner of Man Never Loses His Temper, Though a Golfer Plays in Shirt bleeves and Plays Well Uses Public Fairway. t; V London, Aug. 4. Kngland has its hands full in dealing with European emgirants bound for the United States who formerly went in German ships. Congestion in -the ports of the United Kingdom and the recent out 'break of typhus in Russia and the PaJkans have caused the United Siates Public Health Service to be stir itself. At the present time three f American surgeons are at work here, the first public health officials in the United Kingdom. Dr. W. J. Pettus, formerly Assist ant Surgeon General of the United States, is in general charge of the . work with offices in the consulate. " Dr. Burr Kergnson will have direc tion of operations at the port of Lon don and Southhampton and Dr. N. B. Robinson at Liverpool. Duties which the new organization will perform include the supervision of inspection and handling of all em igrants for America and fumigation of ships for rats and vermin. This work was formerly carried on through ordinary consular channels but now it bsa grown to such proportions as to make additional help necessary. All second-class and thirdclass pasengers bound for the United States roust submit to medical inspection be love a sailing permit is issued. (The emicrants are divided into two classes, viz., the clean and the un clean, the latter being subjected to thorough cleansing and their cloth ing disinfected. Persons coming from certain countries or districts re garded "as "suspects" arc detained 12 da vs. This period of detention is passed In big hospitals provided by the steamship companies where the em 1 grants ere maintained at the com pany's expense in London and Liver- Washington , August 4j Warren Gameliel Harding is the nation s greatest golf attraction. 'Chick' Evans, "jocK" i-iutcninson and "Bobby" Jones notwithstanding. Warren G. Harding has a bigger gal lery each time that he plays golf than other golfer in the United States. If the President saw lit - to charge "two bits" per for each person in his gallery every . time he wields a brasse ' he would net a neat little sum that might run a close second to the salary check that the Treasury Department sends him twice a month. All Washington likes to watch the President golf, and to date most of Washington has seen him at the game. No one has heard him, wnicn speaks well for his temper. The President plays most frequent ly on the nine-hole course in East Potomac Park, which is maintained by the government for the nublic of Washington. Whenever he appears at the first tee he is immediately sur rounded by a half-hundred golfers and all of the way down the course has an increasing "gallery." Most of the golfers let the President "go through," while they stand on the edge of the fairway and watch him and it doesn't seem to feaze him a bit. Warren G. Harding's collective golf cards may not look well enough to be framed, but he is a rare golfer, for he never displays extreme joy or chagrin over his game. Like most of the gar den variety of golfers, he spends a good bit of his time in the bunkers and raises much dust, but, unlike most golfehs, he doesn't raise "Cain" with the dust. He just shoots away until he is out of the hazard and back on the fairway, and never a word or even an ugly look. Borrows -41 atch from Bystander Some two score or more old-time golfers stood by in amazement a short time ago and watched the President drive into a sandpit 100 yards from the tee, on a par three hole. The President watched his ball sink in the sand, walked to it very deliberately, chose a spoon and tried lor an "out. No luck, but plenty'of sahd in the air and all over the Presidential golfer. One more try with the spoon, and the same net result. On the third shot the little old ball went shooting into the air and carried 20 yards over the green. The President switched his cigar from one corner-of his mouth to the other and, without even mutter ing. walked on. "When the Chief Execltlve was out of hearing, one of the old timers who was standing by exploded, "Hell, he can't 'be human! Three dubs And not a single word!" Theiojji timer folio wed -elong. to tho green. The President drew & elx on a par three hole. "Nice work, Joe, said the Presi dent to Senator Fredinghuysen, his opponent, who holed out In three. Turning toward the next tee, the President stopped in the midst of his "gallery" and asked a youth for a match. "Hell, he is human, after all, eh, wot?" croaked the old timer. This was but a fair example of the Presidential -control at golf. The Chief Executive doesn't always hit them where he would like them to go, but he has perfect control of his tem per and tongue, and one bad hole doesn't ruin his game for he goes aft ter the next hole harder than ever. Believes. In Comfort Before Style The President may not have the best golf form in the land, but it's a safe wager that he has as good golf temper as any player now extant, un less some of the characters in those old Sunday School books have taken up the ancient Scotch game. The Executive is not a star golfer, nor is he a bad golfer. His scores run under and over the 100 mark for 18 holes. He plays golf for the sheer joy of it, and to win. Whatever he plays he plays to win, but he plays with an extreme fair-mindedness and ftakes no advantage over an opponent. nor does he gloat over an adversary's misfortune. It is often said that a man's true character is shown in his golf. If this be true. Warren G. Harding is a gentleman and a true sportsman, and then some. Those who make golf an excuse for wearing dashing, "tweedy" looking, sport clothes may be interested to know that the President doesn't spend much worry over his golfing clothes. He wears, light linen "knickers" in summer, with a pair of the ugliest brown golf stockings ever seen on any course. Like Ambassador Harvey, he sheds his coat whenever the weather warrants it and doesn't care what the golf fashion books may say about this. His shirt is of soft white linen, with a soft collar attached, and his blue bow tie is generally some what awry. He alternates between a tweed golf cap and a white linen hat that flops in an uncanny fashion over his face. The President is no Adonis in golf habilaments, but he looks like a real golfer, and you may take it from his constant gallery, he is.

A " plan, which its exponents claim would sta bilize the prices of farm products has recently been presented to the Senate Agricultural Committee at Washing ton. It has likewise passed the lower house of South Dakota legislature and been endorsed by financial and farm ing associations. According to Will H. Lyon, of Sioux Fall, S. D., the plan's author, it will not only stabilize the price of farm products but will go farther and sta bilize business in general, to a great extent. In explaining the plan Mr. Lyons says: "The stabilization plan would have the National Government guarantee to farmers the average cost of "produc ing staple, non-perishable, crops, plus a reasonable profit, by agreeing to purchase whatever surplus remains on hand at the end of 'the crop year. delivered at certain central terminals and ait a stipulated minimum price. "This surplus in every staple crop, exceDt wheat and cotton, is so small that the- amount of money required would be insignificant In comparison with the value of the entire crop. "If the surplus of any crop should prove excessive, the stabilizing com mission, fairly representing both pro ducers and consumers, appointed by the President, would probably reduce the price for the following year and increase the price of other products in which a shortage might exist ana therebv induce our farmers to in crease production of flax, wool, and sugar which we now so largely im port, at a cost of several hundred million dollars a year. "The government- under the plan must necessarily control the imports of such products and through - the stabilizing commission would pur chase abroad, at the world price level. any deficit required and seu to our manufacturers at not less than the o-!-nrtu!, nriee except that in tended for export) thereby making a profit of the difference between the cost and selling price. Speculation in food products so abhorrent to the generad public would, of course, be automatically eliminated below the guaranteed price. "Now, when the farmer succeeds In .n.im, rrnn he does not know whether to sell for fear the price will go down, or hold for a better mark et. Knowing in advance the guaran teed minimum price of the various products, the farmer can use his land and ability to the best possible advan tage and the rental and salable value of the land will be largely stabilized. The guaranteed minimum price, of course, should not be made sufficiently high to induce speculation in , farm lands or produce an excessive surplus. "Under the stabilizing plan the far mer would receive the same price re--gardless of road conditions. Under the present system the highest price usually prevails when roads are bad or elevators congesieu mm ucuin difficult or impossible. When these conditions improve the price goes down." LACK OF MARKET PUTS MINERS OUT OF EMPLOYMENT Indianapolis, Ind., Aug.- 4. Unem ployment of 150,000 coal miners daily, with many thousand others idle much of the time, is reported by officers of the United Mine Workers of America who assert the idleness is due to the lack of a market for coal. State of ficials here in- touch with coal trade, and the coa.p operators also maintain there is no market for coal, adding that a famine is threatened unless the household consumers lay in their winter supply now. Indiana mines, which produce ap proximately 25,000,000 tons annually, are estimated by officials to have turned out about 10,000,000 tons for the first half of the year, with the average monthly production falling below 1,500,000 tons the last three months. More than half of the time lost this year is rated by the operators to have been due to "no market" For the country as ai whole, the soft coal production is said to be 65,000,000 tons behind the average of the last four years. Hard coal production is said to be slightly hgiher than in the last several years. Thousands of miners have not worked enough to be listed in the membership of the union, but vthe exeat number has not been announced aithougbr in Indiania it is known that the union loss in membership at pres ent exceeds 12,000. The present total membership is between 17,000 and 18,000, as compared withmore than 29,000 at the opening of the year. Union officials say the only strike or lockout stiuations are in Mingo Coun ty, W. Va., and the state of Washing ton. Cairy Littleiohn, Indianai state mine inspector, declares the 300 mines in Indiana are working less than half time, and he says a fuel famine is NOT to be Unexpected unless the do mestic consumers begin storing the winter Jrapply of coal now. Improvement in the soft coal fields is expected with the approach of fall and severed operators are planning to sink new shafts, either to open new mines or -make more profitable the operation' of old mines.
