C Dennis of Sulpher Spiings is visitine Will Lamb and family on DELAYED JUSTICE Swift justice is the only justice that courts. When justice is delayed it invites evasion and loses, even when it finally arrives, most of its moral effect acts as a deterrent. The system in most States makes crime a fair gamble for any malefactor. The chances of getting away with the worst crimes are indef.nitely multiplied during the long period between the offense and the final decree of the courts. The result is that law is held in contempt and justice is robbed of its terrors. South Factory avenue. meaning millions of dollars to fruit prowers. An early morning report on market conditions and estimated market receipts may mean thousands of dollars to livestock growers, who, taking advantage of the report, are able to make shipments that day or withhold them, as the case may be. All of this is possible only with the radio. The development of radio service has raised the question of its regulation by state and federal governments. There is no doubt that the federal government will ultimately have to exercise some supervision over radio communication. The problem of just how far this supervision should go is the subject of verv serious consideration by the administration. It is necessary that the transmission of private and inconsequential matter should not interfere with the transmission of government matter or of market reports or weather forecasts. It is also perfectly apparent that there must be some way to prevent amateurs and experimenters from interfering with the radio communications that are of serious business import. legatees and devisees of Elizabeth .Nicholson, deceased; Mary Menden-a'l, Mendenall, her husband whose christian name is unknown; Un-' known heirs, legatees and devisees of Mary Mendenall, deceased; John H.

GOING TO CHURCH It is a common impression that people do not go to church as they used to go. Yet a religious census shows that almost 46.000.000 Americans are regular church attendants. That is r.ot so bad in a population cf about 106,000.000. There are 200.090 mininsters in the United States, including all denominations.

Political Announcements j The importance and utility of radio communication in the United States has taken its place along with the telephone and telegraph as an instrumentality of general communication. As such, it is generating problems which a year ago, or even six months ago, were not thought of. It is conservatively estimated that there are over 1,000.000 people who daily "listen in" on radio telephones to the various messages which are sent from the radio broadcasting stations. These stations are operated in 35 cities located at various points from coast to coast and from the Gulf to the Great Lakes. These stations disseminate,-broadcasting" is the official term, all kinds of matter: news bulletins, weather reports, market reports, concerts, sermons, lectures, shipping news, stories for children, propaganda of varied character, travelogues, advertising and common gossin. So important a phase of modern life has radio service become that scores of newspapers are now carrying a radio news department, with a daily program of the matter that is to be broadcasted from the various sending stations, giving the time of broadcasting, as well as the matter which is to be disseminated. It is estimated that nearly 500.000 receiving instruments are in operation daily. j No one class of people is more a 1 1 a A 1 1 tL:. J All Aboard fr Laughland 50YA!
