Corpora SUSTAINING MEMBER Mfanal Jissociaiwn ONE MORE BLOW AT THE CRIMINAL Whenever you take up the problem of crime and its prevention, you are pretty likely to find yourself talking about the lawyers before you get through. Attorney General Cummings' announcement that the department of justice is preparing to open fire on lawyers suspected of underworld connection should not be surprising. That there are lawyers who work hand in glove with notorious crooks is perfectly obvious-as, likewise, is the fact that the crooks can't be curbed effectively until something is done to the lawyers. "One of the most important elements of predatory crime," says the attorney general, "is the manner in which some members of the bar co-operate with the underworld." Any man accused of crime, no matter how black his reputation, is entitled to the best legal defense lie can get when he gets into court That much goes without eaying.

But what the attorney general is talking about is the lawyer who advises the gangster on how to commit and cover up crimes, who helps him out of the law's grip when he gets caught, uses trickery to guide him safely through the courts, and in general steps over the ethical borderline in looking after his interests. There are lots of lawyers like that. Everyone who has had anything to do with the criminal courts knows it perfectly well. So far the various bar associations of the country seem to have been either unwilling or unable to do anything very effective about putting such lawyers out practice. As an emergency measure, action by the federal- government would be a very good thing.

Uncle Sam has taken a dot of unfamiliar jobs this year; if he TV ants to tackle the racketeers of the legal profession, now, we can do nothing hut wish him lots of luck. But in the long run the job is up to the legal profession itself. A much finer sense of the necessity of living up to the profession's ethical standards, a finer sense of the lawyer's responsibility to society as well as to the client who happens to be paying him, a passion for justice and a recognition of the fact that a lawyer can soil his hands by handling the wrong kind of are things we rnusi have if the house cleaning is really to be of feelive. THE PRICE WE PAY FOR MACHINE POLITICS In ail the noise that is being made about the mayoralty fight in New York city you can hear, if you listen closely, the ominous howling of a very cold coldest wind, perhaps, that lias ever shaien the fabric of American democracy. of the frantic negotiations, campaignings and wire-pullings of the New York situation, where the nation's largest city tries desperately to get Tammany off its back, there stands the simple and unpleasant fact that our system of municipal government has come perilously close to breaking down entirely.

New York is as Chicago and a host of other cities have already our familiar type of marine politics is totally inadequate to meet the problems of the modern world. For a great many years we have innocently gone along, handing over our city, county and state governments, to men who quite frankly were not especially interested in good government, but whose chief concern was the building up of their own political fortunes. The results were while times were good we could Afford them, or we thought we could. local government became the weakest link in democratic chain, but the chaia wns slack during prosperity and nobody miuded very much. Now the chain stretched taut The -weak link is being strained right to the breaking point.

Machine politics, in other words, ie as anachronistic one of Columbus' caravels. We have got to the point where we simply can't put up with it any longer. And what is happening in New York is an object lesson for the remotest county court house, town hall and state capitol in America. Foreign observers have long predicted that if the American democracy broke down the collapse would begin with the municipal governments. Are we beginning to witness that collapse now? Is the cold wind that howls in from Manhattan island going to be a destroying cyclone that finds us with no storm cellar handy? Or are we going to have sense enough to clean house on all of our political machines; sense enough to stop listening to demagogues, to elect capable pub-.

He servants instead of corruptible politicians, to demand service instead of fair thereby, to replace the weak link in the chain with one that stand any pull? OLD MEN OF 36 The discrimination against middle-aged job-seekers Is an old story by this time. Lately it has been more or less ignored, because it was only one of many serious problems. But it cannot continue to be Ignored, because it grows worse. Some employ- seem to find in the new deal itself a new opportunity for such discrimination. In re-employment, with so many idle men and women to choose from, they pick the younger ones without regard to social justice or personal need, or even fitness.

They exaggerate the value of youth and the burdens of liability insurance. An age limit of 45, which was established in many places before the depression, is said to have been lowered now by as much as 10 years. Industrial employers refuse to hire men over 35. And this at a time when family need is greater and active working life is supposed to be longer than ever before. Such unsocial practices, if continued or tolerated, may result in retaliation.

People over 35, for instance, might unite to stop buying the products of employers who boycott their class. The jazz age must be about done.

Newspaper Comment The State as Liquor Seller Des koines Plain Talk: If the state of Iowa shall engage in the business of retailing whisky and wines, as some people want it to do, the state of Iowa w-ill be running a saloon.

If the state of Iowa shall elect to go into the saloon business, that will mean, inevitably, that the saloon and hard liquor will be in the politics of the state just as much as it ever was. And yet, as far as we can see, there is no other solution of the problem which will confront the people of Iowa that presents as many good points as does the proposition of a state saloon, or a number of state saloons, for that is will be necessary. No Settled Fact Sac City Sun: As the law now stands, the sale of anything stronger than 3-2 beer is prohibited in Iowa. The same condition will exist even if the eighteenth amendment is repealed. It is not at all a settled fact that the special session of the legislature will even repeal the Iowa liquor laws.

British Pushing Propaganda for A Larger Navy By FLORY United Press Staff Correspondent LONDON (U.E) When U. S.

Secretary of the Navy Swanson, placed contracts for construction of approximately 140,000 tons of new warships, he unconsciously gave the signal for the release of reams of big-navy propaganda in Great Britain. The propaganda ignores the fact that upon completion of the present U. S. program, its" fleet still will be considerably-below the London Naval Treaty strength in light cruisers, destroyers and submarines, and considerably below global tonnage parity 'with the British fleet. The propaganda places most emphasis on the necessity for Great Britain to have more cruisers than, tlu London Treaty allows.

Lord Jellicoe's Speech Lord Jeliicoe in a recent speech pointed out that in April, 1917, after Germany began unrestricted submarine warfare, Great Britain near disaster. Yet then, she had more than 100 cruisers, compared with 50 now, and 350 destroyers, compared with 150 now. Lord Jeliicoe estimates: that the cost of the British navy represents about two and one-half per cent of the value of Britain's overseas trade. Britain's trade routes total 80,000 miles, it is claimed. On any normal day more than 2,000 British ships art carrying British trade.

Thus, according to her present permitted cruiser strength the British navy would have one cruiser to convoy each 200 merchant, each cruiser's "beat'' 1 might be a maximum of 4,000 miles. Navy of 1936 Sir Bolton Eyres-Moasell, in presenting his naval estimates last spring, declared that the Branded Aid in Prison Break John Dillinger, an.d bank robber suspect, above, is accused of being one of the. "o.ut- eide men" in the prison break of ten Indiana convicts. His from Ohio to Indiana has been granted. British fleet in 1935 would consist of only 15 battleships, compared with 69 In 1914, 50 cruisers compared with 108, 117 -destroyers compared with 285, and'- 38 submarines compared with 74.

other navy, he claimed, had been reduced so drastically; lu total tonnage, he said, British fleet would have been reduced from 2,161,000 to 1.151,000, while the "United States fleet would have been increased from 881,000 tons to 1,139,000, and the Japanese increased from 522,000 to 720,000. On the theory that where there is smoke there must be fire, it is safe to preparations are being made for Great Britain to insist on a "new deal" for her fleet at the 1935 conference.

She left the office one evening, too weary to remain down' town for dinner, too even to stop at the delicatessen for something already cooked. -It was toward the end of a blustering night following a gray winter day. The sort of night, Eve mused, when one should go home to a lighted bouse and a hot, savory dinner, with books and music afterwards before- an open fire. And with the one you lored best to share the peace and comfort.

She had read once this brief definition of happiness "Four feet on the fender." And it was true. She knewj. now that it was perhaps too late, that it was true. The wind whipped sharply around the corner at she climbed the steps to the porch. Tears of self pity misted her eyes as she fumbled for her latchkey.

She winked them back. If she permitted herself to cry she would be certain to meet Dorothy McElhln- ney in the entrance hall and she was determined that no one should guess her unbappiness.

I've noticed that any intelligent girl can learn to cook In a short time, once she gets interested in it and really tries. Do you like to cook, Eve?" Her mother's voice was quiet and casual, yet Eve sensed that the question was important. She made her voice casual, too. "I think I might like It," she answered, "if I were at home and had time to learn.

Since Dick's gone I usually eat my meals dbwn town. I'm too tired when evening comes to come home and cook." "And when Dick was here?" Kate Bayless persisted. "When Dick was here he did tbo cooking," Eve confessed. She had not told her mother this before. She was ashamed to have her know.
