Mr. Morris Is No Republican While the methods pursued by Robert H. Lucas, executive director of the Republican national committee, in seeking the de-feat bf George W. Morris, Nebraska senator, may not have been above criticism, his position at least appears a more honest and sensible one.than that of a good many of his fellow Republicans. If Herbert Hoover, Heed Smoot, George Moses, Simeon fess, Andrew Mellon and others of that stamp are . Republicans—and their position in the party's councils seems evidence enough that they are—then surely George Norris is no Republican. He may be, as we are inclined to think, • a better and more trustworthy representative of the American people in the halls of congress than most Republican senators and representatives, but by any definition that fits a majority of Republican office holders he most certainly . is' not a Republican. If Mr.. Norris considers that he is a true sami/e of Republicanism—that the rest of the party is out of step with him—and if the people of his state agree with him and continue to send him' to congress with a Republican label, that is the affair of Senator Nor- m-ami his fellow Nebraskans. But it imposes no obligation upon members of the Republican national organization , .to'accept him for what he plainly is ™ts=° n e of them. 't The sooner the Republican organization musters sufricif/nt courage and honesty to face the facts «md read from their ranks such men as Norris, I,a- Pollette, Elaine, Brookhart, Borah and a half-dozen others, the better it will he for the country, if not for the G. 0. P. Such a procedure will help to draw party lines where the issues really are, and will hasten the natural and inevil- \ able alliance between the progressive elements in national politics. The Democratic party needs some new blood, and could profit by the excommunication of Republicans who are misfits in their present political home. •The trouble is, of course, that any such action on the part of the Republicans, would at once destroy any hoitc they may have of organizing the next OUT OUR WAY congress, so Mr. Lucas will probably have trouble enlisting much support for his program. A Notable Experiment It is interesting to note that a parliamentary committee has urged the British government to abolish capital punishment for a five-year period as an experiment in penology. The committee frankly favors the complete abolition of the death penalty; however, it suggests the live-year experiment as a measure that may win support from more conservative slates- men, and there is a good possibility that the British Parliament will adopt the scheme. Here would be an excellent chance to get £omc irrefutable dala on the effects of capital punishment. For a country like England, which has always punished its murderers with the gallows, to do away with hanging for live years would provide, an extremely valuable commentary on the theory that only the threat, of death will hold a po murderer in check. GLANCES By George Clark Driving and Citizenship Is it necessary to be 11 pussable automobile di'ivei 1 in order to be <in Aineri- c<in citizen? This question pops into one's mind on reading of tlie experience of a German applicant 1'or citixensliip papers in Detroit, who was turned down by Federal Judge A. J. Tut tic because lie had a record as an habitual traffic law violator. The judge took thU action after officers who had delved into the applicant's past found that he had been arrested at least once a year for the past live years for aerious violations of the traffic, code. Are we reaching that point in national evolution where an American will be described as a biped who drives an automobile? Is our civilization so thoroughly motomecl that one who cannot drive properly does not deserve citizenship? If so, the streets are lilted with native-born Americans who really ought to be turned into landless aliens. • H. A. HORINSON'S BIRTH Cn Dec. 22, 18C9, Edward Arlington Robinson, one of the most, famous of contemporary American peels, was b:rn at Head Tide, Me. \Aftcr two years at Harvard Robinson w,3nt 10 New York. Here he struggled with poverty and a time worked in a subway. He leaped into prominence In 1897 when a poem, "The Children of the Night," attracted the uttenlicn of Theodore Roosevelt. Since then his fame has grown rapidly. Robinson's work, as one critic wrote, is "Intellectual, sincere in feeling, distinctively American In tone and point of view, and free frrm all that is trivial and meaningless." Amy Lowell called Robinson the most remarkable of living American posts. A member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters, 'Hob- Inson's outstanding- works to date include: 'The Mnn Against the Sky," ' Merlin," 'Lancelot, fhe Children of the Night," and "Tristram."

(UP) —A giant cat- tonwood tree, once used ty lynch- ers and suicides Is being cut down because It interferes with power lines. The tree is 127 feet high, seven and one-half feet, around at 11s base, and estimated to bs 110 years old. Frank Kurlh. 70, a Gary pioneer, said tlie tree was one of the wonders of northern Indiana in I'jSS, because of its size.
