Neither Can We It looks as If those Cody folks who thought they were going to vote for town councilmen this spring are doomed to meet the fate of the Ala bama darky. Down In that state they have a law requiring a man to be familiar with the U. S. Constitution in order to vote. On one occasion a white man confronted an election judge and asked to vote. The Judge quizzed him as follows: “The constitution says, ’No one shall be entitled to vote who has not attained the age of twen ty-one years.’ What does that mean?” Upon giving a satisfactoiy answer, the man was allowed to vote. Immediately following came Old Mose, to whom the judge addressed the following query: “The constitu tion says: ’No bill of attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed.’ What does that mean?” Old Mose scratched his head thoughtfully for a few moments. “I guess,” he answered, finally, “Dat means data niggah can’t vote.” Ancient History We don’t know Whether the Incident occurred near Cody or not, but we re member of reading yeais ago about three fellows who were hung in Wy oming for stealing horses. The exe cutioners strung them up to a limb in a row and left them hanging with this sign attached: “Three of a kind —lynched for not havin’ horse sense.” • • • IT ALL DEPENDS The sanctified editor of the Grey bull Standard protests that the dis cussions anent the preservation of big game have grown wearisome and adds the comment that the elk must give way before the tide of land hunt ers. Os course our brother, whose favor ite sport is occupying a reserved seat in a damp church on prayer meetin’ night, can see nothing to the wild game question, but there are several million other people in this country who are vitally interested in the mat ter and are glad to hear It discussed. Probably the Puritan of the Big horn does not realize that the columns of moralizing clap-trap run regularly in the Standard is much more weari some to many people than discussions of big game. There is a passage somewhere about a mote and a beam in folks’ op tics which the oil city scribe may look up at leisure. PLANS FOR BUFFALO BILL MEMORIAL BEING PUSHED Plans for a Cody memorial, to be erected in or near this city, will be carried to a successful consummation if the present plans of local citizens materialize. At the regular weekly meeting of the Cody Club on Monday. Mr. Ewart presented a motion to place the mat ter in the hands of a permanent committee of which Clay Tyler is to be chairman, the other members of the committee to be named by him. The motion was unanimously carried. Under this .arrangement the com mittee will have full power to act. In the matter of deciding on the form of the memorial, its location, the me thod of financing the project and all other questions connected therewith. While the plane are as yet imma ture. it is the expressed intention to erect a statue to the great scout in an advantageous location In Cody at an expense of approximately $50,000. Several years ago the State legis lature appropriated the sum of $5,000 foi the erection of a memorial to Buf falo Bill, and with this as a nest-egg the committee will endeavor to raise the additional amount necessary to complete the work. In the years of discussion regarding this project various plans for financ ing the movement have beenjidvanced and the question of how to proceed with the work will be decided upon shortly. One plan advanced is to put the matter into the hands of the Boy Scouts of America, who will be au thorized to raise the money for the memorial in a nation-wide canvass. But whatever plan is ultimately adopted. It seems reasonably assured that under the present program this important work will be carried thru to a successful consummation. CODY FISH HATCHERY TO RESUME OPERATION Bruce Bayne of Cheyenne, chief as sistant to the State Game and Fish Commissioner, accompanied Commis sioner Bruce Nowlin on his trip to Cody the first of the week and spent a couple of days in this leoality inves tigating the matter of reopening the Cody fish hatchery, which has been, standing idle for some time past. While the plans for reopening the hatchery are as yet immature. It is the intention to resume operations this year. To begin with, the local plant will probably be used as a collecting or spawning station, at which fish eggs will be coleeted for shipment to other hatcheries. It is also quite likely that hatching operations will be resumed later, but this is a question which will be definitely decided in the future.
