Man Still a J funter And a Killer Man is still a hunter. In (lie clavs when he was a shaggy biulc-num ciouchcd in a smoky cave, lie was a hunter because he had to be Jlan \\as botli hunter ant! limited in those days. Only because he was tlic bett hunter among all the animal kingdom, did lie survive. The necessity fm hunting as a means of existence has ch.sappcarcd in all civilized places. But man is a hunter btill. Tiie instinct which led him to trap and kill tlie great mammoth, the shiill ciy Hunlcfs-^of deer. of triumph at the kill, lie deep within him still. Sometimes, in the most unexpected ways, the old instinct rises to the surface, takes possession of even civilized man That is Atavism. Ami when the laws and customs of civilized society dccieo a hunt, when" the baie wotcction of each other's —-.-^_-.-«_-_, », , 1w Hunlfrs—of man./ lives demand that a danger be hunted down and elirmmiled, men join the hunt today with a certain gum pleasure and excitement that reflects n forgotten past. Study these pictmes. In one, men have banded together to hunt clown and kill deer, simply foi thoii plea- suie. Their satisfaction \ulh their quauy, their pride in their weapons, is easily seen in the pose they have assumed. In the other pictuie you see the same satisfaction in their qimuy, the The inhibitions of civilisation \\cic released. The hunt Mas on. At its end n man lay dead, liium- samc pride In llicir weappns, almost the same pose, This, too, was n hunt, But the quarry this time was a man. He was Ray Olson, desperate killer oi' two Wisconsin deputy sherifls. lie wits hunted down exactly as a lion or a bear is limited to his death. Olson had done nnu'der. Ho had re- bihtcd capture in .such a way as to make capture impossible except at imminent risk of death to the pursncrH, JIc was too dangerous lo be allowed ill large, moie dangerous than the gentle deer, phant deer litle.s propped across his caieuss exactly as, though he had been a deer. Unconsciously, the him tors assumed for the camera n pose that showed bow ,sl) oiitfly, when necessity removes rchti'aint, the caveman hunter crops up in man, 1030. This is the primitive soul' that sleeps lestlessly beneath the surface of every one of us, w/iitiiig only (he liberation that comes with cificrgcncy, danger, or war to call it howling forth. JMgTHEVlLLE, (ABK.) OOUKlBtt NEWS Cheaper'Houses The reduciion of the cost of building a house is one of the central problems of the day. To own a home and a little land is the legitimate ambition of nearly all Aincncnus.- Until \ve have made it possible to realise this, we have not succeeded in America. Moie than half of' the urban population can afford to live in bouses selling «t between $2000 and $4000. Yet oniv 15 per cent of the houses built year foil within those''price limits. The i eduction by 20'per cent of the cost of home-building, a present object five ot the administration, is certainly a laudable one. To do this, and yet not decrease the standards. of building- fiade workers/material dealers, biiikl- eus and other persons directly involved, is a problem, largely a problem in efficiency in an industry known for the conliaiv. It is a real challenge to American ingenuity, to bo met boldly, skillfully, and wisely. Ray of Light Juvenile delinciuciicy is one of the pioblcms of the time. It has been the, custom to think of it as an increasing- pioblem, with younger criminals, and \\ith minor delinquency reaching down farther and farther toward mere childhood. Thus it is good to see that this need not be so. Cleveland last year reached the lowest point an juvenile delinquency in 26 years, depression or iio depression. M S. Laird, research director of the jmcinle court there, attributes this piogrcs.3 to increased efficiency of private and public .social agencies in adjusting behavior:-problems formerly taken to juvenile co'iji-t, .to belter adjusted school programs, more recreation facilities, and to greater sympathy by all for adolescent problems as well as an effective police educational campaign in heavily-populated scclions. Hani, intelligent work will thus turn back many a tide \vhich the indifferent dismiss as "the trend'of the times." COPE. tM» tt HU SCKMc. Ki. T. M. RIG.
