Thcie aic bhll many who will kill and rob and iiijiuc Altogether, the iccord doesn't speak any too well for the means (alien to eliminate eiimo. That (fives point to a recent, speech of Judge Alwcll wick befoic the National Probation Association. Judge Wcslwick it on the bencb of the Superior and Juvenile , Cotut of Santa Barbaia, Calif He <lc- hv'eicd a stimhjj indictment ot "the nonsense, sophibtiy and cuiclly which chnractci uo biir iiatlilioiuil legal system." He began with an inlcicsling definition of dime: "The expression in social life of Ibe physical and bucwl un- vii'onnicntb piny ing upon a ppi.sonalily \\tiich ib essentially abnormal 01 un- somi'd, by ieason of heieclity, dueasc, or'development'." bbvionsly, if Uial is a good dolini- ' , tion of crime, then puiiiKlnneiil in tho sense of the state's levengc for an ad of willful hostility to society, is ol no use. In fact, it is hard to got around Judge 'Wcslwick's assertion thai "however iiigenious and inhuman the penalties, the Vnmb'ei of ofteiirter^ seems never to have ^dcei cased " Tlus-hiininilo judge, fiom loiijf'expi- - lience in juvenile work, believes thai, the concept of a juvenile com I, wheie medicine, biology, sociology, psychology, psychiatry, and psycho-analysis can all work side by side to ellect cine lather than punishment, might be extended into bioadei fields of cHnio work. We arc ceilainly lending in llial direction. The stale now sends a nun to prison, not to "get back at him' for something he has done, but to try to sh.tighten him out, or at least to keep him out of contact \ulh his iellow- ineil during a period when it seems Jik'ely that he would icpcat the offense. A civilization may be measured by the kind of anti-crime measures il adopts. A ciude state of .society always adopts crude and savage revenge methods with inthlcss punishment for the detected criminal. As it moves to- waid civilisation, the aim must always be, not punishment, but 'achievement of a state of mental and physical health in which future crime is made less likely. The WesU icks arc pioncei s in whose 'OUT OUR WAY trail society fo)lott's as fast as its stumbling steps permit. .'•' , Publication In tills column of editorials from other ncwspajwrs does not necessarily mean endorsement but Is an nckiio'wledgiSeht 'ot interest In the subjects discussed.

Tills special reason against, (he third-term movement oil which certain members nnd followers of the Roosevelt adihlnislraton appear lo bi; belli »as pointed out by Scnatoi Burke of Nebraska, In fnirness It must be sultl that Mr. noosc- vclt hijii.wlf has done nbiiilng so Jar as the public-knows (o encourage a third term movc- incl.

She would crash, with llic deadliest certainly, Into tho yawning pit before her, if she yielded by so much ns n fraction to the clamoring urge her emotions were inciting within her. Loving Dart, knowing full well that ho had married her with the budget idea fixed, firmly in his methodical mind, she knew she was breaking faith wilh him. Bui she knew, with greater certainty, thai she owed $21 each and every week ot her life for (lie coming seven months, and il was no time to look bade at earlier bargains. Barl would have to make the most ot il. He'd have lo gel used lo thing.; as they were. Because If she didn'l make the payments c;ich week, he would learn aboul her debts. And if he learned about the debts Ihere'd be a riol. Bart loathed installment buying almost as much as he loathed the peculiar system set lip and made legal by the budget plan sellers. The "fines" inflicted on Ihe account that was delinquent, the carrying charges—ten times more than any bookkeeping and financing Ihreufih, legal channels required. The crafly method of withholding ultimatums until cost of merchandise was completed, then cracking ciowii and faking the stuff back to resell at almost the same price over again. "I remember, once,"when t was ten, Ihey look the piano away from us," Barl told Iris, diiring the first weeks of their marriage when he dis'/overed a "slip" she had run ;it ihe corner grocery for groceries for the week, arid had argued vigorously against it, insisting that she. promise never to do it again. "I'll never forget how my mother cried. AriB how mad I was. I made up my mind then I'd never buy anything on time. Not it 1 went without it forever.'!/ CO—Barl must never Icnpiv."~Ahd nights, when Iris lay awake thinking about the.accounts she was paying on, each week, shiver's raced her spine as she contemplated .the awful consequences; should Bart ever learn her secret. Only he wouldn't. She comforted herself willi that belief Bart heed .never know. She'c never, tell him, and wlieh they were'all paid, she'd buy oh a cash basis, .since he wcs so set'oh it But it v.'as silly. People who never used budget plan buying md practically nothing.. And you lad lo look well nowadays or you'd be out of everything. "•+ So, little by little, she lulled ier fears, and since Bart never m'onlioned 'debts again, it wasn't long before she saw something else she had to have. And could only pay a small deposit down on. It was an evening gown this imo. A gorgeous, heavy, printed men it was,.with a bi£ splashy gold and green maple leaf against on ivory background. . Hoally enormously olYeclive in contrast with her glowing sun-tan, shining >lond hair and blue-violet eyes. But—$25! . "Marked .down ..from " $29,95, Miss . . . Mrs. \VhiUaker," the saleslady urged 1 subtly, "it's really a buy. Not another gown like that in Linwood. And you can wear those linens. They look like ?aris on you." Iris bought it. She bought gold ihen sandals to match, and a tiny Beaten gold ornament to wear in icr hair. And .then, faced the iroblcm of gelling her boodle hoinc so her husband wouldn't ec it. She took the dress home the next noon, and hid it ar/ay in an older suit box. She . had wracked her brain for a suitable fable to explain the dress with, •md had finally decided on something that would mako . doubly dear the new dress. She would make'Bart think H was a lasl year's dress. She knew he wouldn't remember; lie hever remembered her clothes from one season to the next. Men seldom did, she believed. Hiding the box far back in her clothes closet, deep under a pile of dlhei- boxes, she smiled a little, planning how she would spring it on him. i i i '"THAT nifjiit, dressing to~go'lq x Ihe weekly Salurday night dance at the Yacht Club with John and Ellen Kent, Iris pretended to find n great flaw in her pet dance dress. "Goodness, Bart, (his sea'm has come out!. Whatever can I do? This late?" '/Needle and thread is indicated, wife," Bait answered, grinning, "or doesn't one 'sew an evening dress?" . "Definitely not, Barl! H's a job for a tailor, and a mighty smart one. Unless you want to buy a new dress." .. ' • Silting down on the lillle gray enameled bench before the matching gray dressing table, Iris was a convincing study of a perplexed fruslrated.bKde,- UnliHier.Iaihlly .jfijpwni.n'g ; Syc' t swej>t^ ihe '..close arid' a' 'ptizzl&l, iiop'efur " : smile lugged at her mouth. "Unless-—oh, Bart, get hie thai tt pile of boxes, will,you? Up ih'ere on;the fop shelf of the closel. In onebf them I've ah old llne'n ove- niris gown—oiie 1 \yore last year several times; but didn'l like, if t doesn't need pressing or clean- ng—and J'ift almosl positive I had t cleaned before I put it awaj last summer—I'm saved." Bart .was so .proud ot her in llic new, but allegedly "old" lasl year's gown. II was, .he insisted, stunning, it was Die .best-looking ihing he'd ever seen her wear. 11 Was a knockout. She looked Yraiid in it. "You'll wow 'cm, honey," he :rided up enthusiastically. Definitely, the $5 down had oeeii worth it. And, but definilely ih'e weekly payments completing the prjce Would be nothing. Bart's Jnlhusiastic approval of the dress ril'ore than proved how accurate her judgment had been in buying it. You had to buy a new drcs.'j| how and then, lo keep a man*' noticing you. And il didn't mat- lei- if lie did think il was a last year's dress. - If a man was Going to be so 'unreasonable about buying new clothes a girl had to use strategy, didn't she? At the dance, Bart got nniuvs kl.-k but of the others thinking Iris' dress was new, too. He beamed with pride, he even bragged a litle. "Not new at all," he admonished Monica Bradon from the science department at the university, "just something Iris put away in a box last year and kept over. I'll bet she docs the same tiling again this year \Viili it, lop. A dress doesn't wear out in -several years." . Iris avoided " Mohtca's "clear,' direct glance. She avoided Ellen's mirthful brown., eyes, and the hilarious grin on John's face that Bart mistook for appreciation. Let them, she thought mulftg' Jiousl}'.. They didn't have t* 1 scheme and , figure 40 ways (o have so much as a 'decenl dress (o wear to a dance, where there were smart summer people from New York and Boston and everywhere. They didn't have a husband who lived by a silly old budget book, and raved hours <m saving two dimes a day so he'd have $2000 in 15 years. They didn't have iKe present- and the immediate future hamslnmg and made iigly and barren, -just so Ihe far future might be gilded. "After all," Iris fold herself sulkily, "who knows if we'll live that long? In (his day and age you have to-gel what you can. whi|e there's the chance-, and never njincl. the,,far .future."

This is, of course, excccding- . ly. serious, so much so that avla- '| lion experts have u'ecn studying llic causes of .such .temporary blindness. It Is believed that gravity is responsible, live force of gr'tivily being produced by a vlolcnl .turn in Ihe air roijfjlily at riyht angles to the initial courec of the plane while il is attaining the necessary speed. liritish flyers endeavored -to produce the condition by indulging in cx(iciinienls, making ' loops or clips at speeds of 175 to 200 miles per hour, and in association with such looiis and dips making a sudden turn. * « • The pilots describe their sensations under the circumstances as being "like a concertina." The skull feels as if it were a solid ball "of great weight resting on the spine. The skin of the forehead, cheeks, and eyelids bccotnco" numb. As the gtnvlty faclov is produces by the lurn, the vision is first blurred, then there Is a blue haze, and alter that a .suciden sensation of intense blackness. At the same time there is a feeling,of weakness In the limbs, amounting to Inability to move the anus or legs. The blackout may last one or two seconds, or often as much as 20 seconds. If it "lasts any" longer, the' aviator may become! .uiicon- tcioMs. One flight lieWihaht, 'who was recording his experience determined that the.blackout .hi his case, lasted lioin'12 lo 15 seconds, after, which he, suddenly became' fully .conscious. * * » . in the violent ciip and-turh after three loops, the ground, which was 5000 foot below, was dim, giving a sensation that you gel when reading small print too close to your eyes, It is'believed thai the entire set of symptoms results from having the blood drawn from tho brain hy centrifugal force. Schemes have been worked out for preventing this condition, 'prie Is to bend the body sharply forward as the turn Is made, which changes lii'p .angle..
